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…

Crisis on Infinite Earths – Episode 1

The much hyped CW crossover event is finally upon us; it’s an epic tale of the fate of the universe, sacrifice and heroes from different TV shows working together. Crossovers are nothing new in the Arrowverse; one might say that they’re basically part of the furniture at this point with characters regularly cropping up in…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 8

“The Wrath of Rama Khan” Supergirl closes out the first half of season 5 with a battle for Lena’s soul and dangers coming from multiple fronts at once. This season has been really strange so far. It started with slow and deliberate mystery based plotting that has now shifted to rapid fired narrative movement bereft…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 7

“Tremors” Supergirl is all about reveals with the truth about Leviathan, Kara learning of Lena’s true intentions and J’Onn learning the true location of his brother. It’s amazing how much things can change in the space of a single episode. The previous outing did an admirable job showing the influence Leviathan has while still leaving…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 6

“Confidence Women” Supergirl delivers a Lena centric episode that chronicles the rise and fall of her friendship with Andrea while delivering insight into Andrea’s history. I’ve mentioned in prior reviews that scenes between Andrea and Lena are interesting because they are peers who challenge each other equally. Katie McGrath and Julie Gonzalo also convey their…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 5

“Dangerous Liaisons” Supergirl makes use of the newfound camaraderie found between Kara and William as the Leviathan plot gains some traction. Clandestine -and often ancient- organisations are a dime a dozen within the Arrowverse. It’s getting to the stage where it’s difficult to imagine what can be brought to the table where they’re concerned at…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 4

“In Plain Sight” Supergirl says goodbye to a major character as J’Onn continues to deal with the threat of his brother and Kara learns more about William. It was announced a while ago that Mehcad Brooks would be leaving the series in order to pursue his own projects that he needs additional time for. It’s…
