Black Lightning – Season 4 Episode 7

“Painkiller” Black Lightning takes a break from Freeland and the Pierce family to set up a potential spin-off fronted by Jordan Calloway’s Khalil Payne. Backdoor pilots are a very strange fixture of television. Taking an episode out to lay the groundwork for a potential spin-off that might never happen could be seen as a waste…

Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 10

“Time Off For Good Behaviour” Batwoman features the beginning of the promise to be a symbol of hope and progress within Gotham as Roman Sionis continues his plan to peddle his dangerous drug. The previous episode featured a promise from Ryan that Team Batwoman would be focused around enacting real change in Gotham rather than…

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier – Season 1 Episode 4

“The Whole World Is Watching” The Falcon and The Winter Soldier continues the search for the Flag Smashers and their supply of the Super Soldier Serum as Wakanda further complicates the situation. Ayo’s appearance at the end of the previous episode raised the stakes in a really meaningful way. Wakanda’s reluctance to involve themselves in…

The Flash – Season 7 Episode 6

“The One With The Nineties” The Flash gives Cisco and Chester centre stage as they find themselves thrown back in time to the 90s when trying to find a way to track the forces. One thing this show has had a difficult relationship with is time travel. Many of the time travel stories told have…

Supergirl – Season 6 Episode 2

“A Few Good Women” Supergirl deals with Lex Luthor’s trial as the team work tirelessly to free Kara from the Phantom Zone. Kara being stuck in the Phantom Zone is a severe problem for a lot of reasons. For one it’s a prison housing some of the worst criminals the galaxy has to offer and…

The Falcon and the Winter Solder – Season 1 Episode 3

“Power Broker” The Falcon and The Winter Soldier has the characters look up an old enemy as they search for answers to the mystery of the recent appearance of Super Soldiers. One theme this show covers that I didn’t catch in an earlier review is consequences. The entire show is built around the idea that…

The Flash – Season 7 Episode 5

“Fear Me” The Flash brings in an adversary that can force people to be confronted with their greatest fear as the team figure out how to deal with the recent Killer Frost development. Fear is a powerful tool in fiction whether that be creating it in the audience or informing the characters through having them…

Supergirl – Season 6 Episode 1

“Rebirth” Supergirl returns for its sixth and final season with a continuation of the Leviathan plot as well as Lex Luthor’s plan for domination. Similar to The Flash, the previous season of this show was forced to end prematurely due to COVID preventing the completion of filming. All things considered I felt that the unintended…

Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 9

“Rule #1” Batwoman introduces a new threat as the characters pick up the pieces from the apparent death of Kate Kane. There’s very much a transitional quality to this episode following the resolution of the Coryana plot along with the search for Kate Kane in the previous episode. Ultimately the search proved fruitless as Kate…

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier – Season 1 Episode 2

“The Star Spangled Man” The Falcon and The Winter Soldier brings the two leads together on a mission as the new Captain America makes his debut. Introducing a new Captain America at the end of the previous episode was a cliffhanger I found underwhelming because it was delivered as a shock reveal that was somewhat…
