I was looking back through my posts and discovered something I had forgotten. I never wrote reviews for Supergirl: Season 4 or The Flash: Season 5. I remember what happened.

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"
