The CW mega crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths concluded in January so Kneel Before Pod is here to finish discussing it.

Crisis on Infinite Earths – Episodes 4 & 5

Crisis on Infinite Earths delivers a double feature for its conclusion starting with the Paragons trying to figure out a way to restore all that has been lost. Annoyingly, The CW opted to air the finale of this landmark crossover event on the same night which causes significant headaches for this reviewer. I’ve decided to…

Kneel Before Pod – Crisis Meeting (138)

The CW’s mega crossover event Crisis on Infinite Earths has aired its 2019 episodes so Kneel Before Pod makes a triumphant return to discuss it in the usual detail.

Crisis on Infinite Earths – Episode 3

Crisis on Infinite Earths wraps up for 2019 with some difficult choices and a race against time to save what’s left of the multiverse. As someone who writes reviews of most of the shows that make up this ever growing shared multiverse I should be used to tall orders in terms of what my viewing…

Black Lightning – Season 2 Episode 9

“The Book of Rebellion: Chapter Two: Gift of the Magi” Black Lightning continues the runaway teen tail as Jefferson, Anissa and Gambi use all of their resources to find them before more dangerous people do. First of all I’m very aware of how late this review is. Life got in the way which meant I…

Black Lightning – Season 2 Episode 8

“The Book of Rebellion: Chapter One: Exodus” Khalil and Jennifer go on the run with Tobias and Jefferson scrambling to find them in a chaotic episode of Black Lightning. I’ve always said that flawed characters are far more interesting than those written as if they always make the right decision. Jennifer is a great example…

Black Lightning – Season 2 Episode 7

“The Book of Blood: Chapter 3: The Sange” Black Lightning continues its excursion to the world of South Freeland as Khalil makes a very risky decision that could have severe consequences for him. The introduction of South Freeland last week was a great opportunity to expand the world of the show by establishing two compelling…

Black Lightning – Season 2 Episode 6

“The Book of Blood: Chapter Two: The Perdi” Black Lightning expands its world by introducing South Freeland while the characters process the consequences of the events of the previous episode. TV shows with worlds that feel like they continue to exist outside of the perspective of the main characters are often stronger than those who…

Black Lightning – Season 2 Episode 5

“The Book of Blood: Chapter One: Requiem” Black Lightning starts a new arc with a significant loss for the Pierce family that impacts them in really profound ways. The opening of this episode was very oddly staged. Gambi being attacked and apparently killed was a surprise as this season hasn’t spent much time showing that…

Black Lightning -Season 2 Episode 4

“The Book of Consequences: Chapter Four: Translucent Freak” Black Lightning continues to complicate the Pierce family dynamic as Tobias experiences the workings of the justice system. Last season did a really good job of building an open and respectful relationship between all immediate members of the Pierce family. They had their issues and disagreements but…
