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 […]

Lucifer a Devilishly Fun TV Show

I know it’s incredibly cheesy, but boy, do I enjoy watching Lucifer. I know it’s an unholy matchup of a myth-based DC comic and a procedural show — Lucifer comes to LA, meets a former actress, now police officer, and together, they’re detectives! — but Tom Ellis does a terrific job of conveying demonic charm and a growing sense of humanity (that Lucifer isn’t entirely sure he wants or likes). As the title card reminds us each episode, In the […]

Arrow: The Complete Third Season

Poor Arrow. I enjoyed watching it more when it was the only superhero TV show. Now there are a lot more choices, with more variety in tone, and I’m finding a few things not so enjoyable any more. Like the requirement that there be some kind of flashback plotline throughout the episodes. Now in season three, those have moved to Hong Kong, where five years ago, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was ordered around by a skinny Amanda Waller as some […]

The Flash: The Complete First Season

Review by KC Carlson I have a great affection for the Barry Allen/Flash character from DC Comics. The Flash was the first comic book series I “collected” (as opposed to just “read”), and I’ve read all of his classic comics adventures (at least up to the “New 52” era of the comics series). So you can imagine how excited I was to learn that there was going to be a new TV series about the Fastest Man Alive, and that […]

iZombie Season 1

iZombie is the story of Liv Moore (get it?), a dedicated medical student (Rose McIver) who makes the mistake of going to a party one night. After a massacre, she awakes as a zombie, completed with bleached skin and hair, which means she needs to eat brains in order to keep her higher intellectual functions. So she takes a job at the morgue, and when she snacks on a particular cerebellum, she gets flashbacks from the life of the corpse. […]

Sleepy Hollow: The Complete Second Season

I enjoyed the first season of Sleepy Hollow. Its abbreviated length — 13 episodes — allowed its blend of adventure, horror, mystery, and even humor to feel like it was building to something significant. Sleepy Hollow: The Complete Second Season tries the same approach, but I didn’t like it as much. It could no longer feel as fresh, obviously, so the appeal of the new and unusual was gone, with higher expectations taking its place. But part of the problem […]
