Sleepy Hollow: The Complete Third Season

It looked like the third season of Sleepy Hollow was getting back on track after a second season that lost its way, revisiting too many previous plots. Unfortunately, by the end of this most recent season, things were not where viewers wanted. The first scene of season 3 shows the headless horseman sucked into Pandora’s cube, indicating new threats and looking forward by killing the villain of the previous two seasons. The new showrunner, Clifton Campbell, seemed to be interested […]

The Twilight Zone: The Complete Series

Out this week is a wonderful brick of classic television. The Twilight Zone: The Complete Series is again available on Blu-ray, all 156 episodes in five seasons on 24 discs. There was a previous 2012 set released by another company, but rights have transferred, this package is more compact, and the price has dropped. The show looks beautiful, crisp and yet timeless in black and white, and I was surprised at just how many of the episodes were both new […]

The Flash: The Complete Second Season

The Flash is, by my definition, the most successful superhero show currently airing. It captures the teamwork, the struggle, the adventure, the responsibility, and sometimes even the fun of having powers. (Although they still need to figure out just what to do with Iris West.) The second season of the show ramped up what could be done with the character, compared to the first season, introducing the multiverse with the discovery of Earth-2, an alternate version of our planet and […]

Gotham: The Complete Second Season

Review by KC Carlson I think that my favorite thing about TV show DVD/Blu-ray box sets is that I can watch the shows when I want to and at the frequency that I want to. Like this set of Gotham season two I’m currently working my way through. I hated watching this series live on TV last season. They’d spend five or six episodes building up a huge head of atmospheric steam and have several great storylines or subplots headed […]

Arrow: The Complete Fourth Season

Out tomorrow is Arrow: The Complete Fourth Season, collecting the latest season of the granddaddy of the current DC TV universe. When the show started, I found it new and fresh, even if it was a bit too dark compared to my preferred superhero approach. Now, though… The Flash is more fun, Supergirl more hopeful and inspiring, Legends of Tomorrow more adventurous and imaginative, and Lucifer sexier, so I’m not as driven to watch Arrow any more. That’s a good […]

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete First Season

While watching DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete First Season, I was reminded just what a terrific era we live in for filmed superhero comic entertainment. With the time travel and the reincarnated cast (everyone but the villains on the team have come back from the dead at least once) and the drama-filled teamups and the TV-universe-building crossovers, this is the most comic-book-like show out there. And a testament to just how far special effects have come, that flying heroes […]

Lucifer: The Complete First Season

I had fun binge rewatching the first season of Lucifer. In large part that was due to the lead character, as played by Tom Ellis. His devil is ballsy and funny in his lack of restraint. He’s an irrepressible, dapper British gent in a suit who loves sex and is good at it. He isn’t hiding anything but is disturbingly obvious about his drives and wants and expects others to be the same. It’s a twisted kind of honesty, which […]

Supergirl Season 1 Now Available

The first season of Supergirl is now available in two ways: You can stream the episodes for free via the CW website, in conjunction with the channel (that’s acquired the show for season 2) re-airing the episodes. Or you can buy the entire season, 20 episodes, now on Blu-ray or DVD. The Blu-ray also comes with a digital UltraViolet copy. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment gave me a free copy of the Blu-ray set for this review, but even if they […]
