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. The discussion covers the ambition of the event, cameos, hopes for future cameos, theories for January and the strength of Shadow Demons. Craig can be found…

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…

Crisis on Infinite Earths – Episode 2

The CW mega crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths continues with a hunt for paragons that will prove essential in stopping the Anti-Monitor. Things look bleak for the assembled heroes going into the second part; Earth-38 has been destroyed, Oliver Queen is dead and The Anti-Monitor grows more powerful as The Monitor grows weaker. The next…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 21

“Red Dawn” Supergirl finally brings Kara face to face with her evil twin as Ben Lockwood begins to realise that he is yet another pawn in Lex’ master plan. This season of Supergirl has certainly been eventful, perhaps too eventful. Anti-alien tensions have dominated the storytelling but within that there existed a confusingly problematic Manchester…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 20

“Will the Real Miss Tessmacher Please Stand Up” Supergirl continues with Kara and Lena’s investigation into Lex Luthor’s plans as Ben Lockwood’s anti-alien stance ramps up following the death of his wife. I’ve said in many reviews that one of the greatest assets this show has is the Kara/Lena friendship. It’s so rich and interesting…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 19

“American Dreamer” Supergirl focuses on Kara as the journalist as Nia picks up the superhero slack and Brainy helps James process his trauma. I’ve previously criticised this show for not giving enough attention to the non costumed side of Kara’s double life. Since season 1 finished and the show moved to the CW the CatCo…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 18

“Crime and Punishment” Supergirl deals with the aftermath of the previous episode as Kara considers her place in the current state of affairs. Public opinion is a very fickle thing and the biggest challenge for Kara at the moment is altering the perception the public have of her after Lex Luthor staged a very brutal…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 17

“All About Eve” Supergirl picks up the pieces from Lex’ escape with the characters looking to focus on the weak link in his organisation in the hope of tracking him down. The weak link in Lex’ organisation is immediately identified as Eve. It’s unclear what makes her more exploitable than any other part of his…
