Yeah. It’s time to review the final season of the CW’s long-running series Supernatural. I’ve been putting it off for a while. To be fair, the CW—and the COVID-19 pandemic—put it off for longer than I have. After watching five episodes a week for over a year, I was ready for this story to be […]Read more "Supernatural: Season 15 — a review"
I wrote a review of Season 6 of Arrow way back in May 2018. I said then that the series was doing an incomplete job of keeping my interest and announced I was stepping away from it for a while. Absence making the heart grow fonder, and all that. Which is what I did, not […]Read more "Arrow: Seasons 7 & 8 — a review"
As I keep rocketing through the past seasons of Supernatural, I’m starting to feel like a hypocrite. I still enjoy the series. A lot. But, after this crazy immersive process of watching at least five episodes a week this year, I sometimes feel like I’m getting too much of a glimpse into how the […]Read more "Supernatural: Season 10 — a review"
I’m writing this review (or at least this first sentence) just moments after watching the season, and series, finale of the CW’s iZombie, “All’s Well that Ends Well.” Even before I watched the episode I thought this was a bold choice for an episode title. I mean, what if it didn’t end well? Series […]Read more "iZombie: Season 5 — a review"
I haven’t been watching Arrow this season, except for this year’s crossover event, but I’m still a steady viewer of The Flash and Supergirl. For whatever reasons, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow was left out of the crossover this year. Perhaps that series is on shaky ground, renewal-wise: I really don’t know. I stopped watching the […]Read more "DC Comics on The CW: Elseworlds Crossover Event (2018)"
Okay. Let’s face facts here, gang. This is a ridiculous show. I’m not kidding. Ridiculous. It has few redeeming qualities, and I’ll probably forget most of it in a few years. It is not a deeply layered drama with multidimensional characters and themes that stick with you for more than a few days. It’s schlock, […]Read more "Riverdale: Season 2 — a review"
The television series with the longest episode titles known to man (which still aren’t as long as my own 15-Minute Force titles) has returned for a second season. I liked the first season of Black Lightning. Specifically, I liked that it featured a middle-aged superhero, who happens to be black. I also liked the cast […]Read more "Black Lightning: Season 2 Premiere Episode, “The Book of Consequences-Chapter One: Rise of the Green Light Babies” — a review"
Let’s start with the good news: iZombie has been renewed for a fifth season. Now, of course, the bad: Season 5 will be the last for the series. As far as we know. I mean, right now. It could be picked up by another major network, or Amazon or Netflix or . . . […]Read more "iZombie: Season 4 – review"
Right off the bat, let me say that Black Lightning has been renewed for a second season, and that I, for one, am happy about it. I described my feelings about this series in my review of the premiere. And nothing much has changed in the interim. First seasons can be difficult. I am […]Read more "Black Lightning: Season One — a review"
The first episode of CW’s new superhero series Black Lightning is titled “The Resurrection.” The new series in the Berlanti-verse distinguishes itself in many ways from the other superhero shows. One of the main ways it does so, right off the bat, is by featuring a superhero who, as the episode title might suggest, already […]Read more "CW’s Black Lightning: Premiere “The Resurrection” — a review"
