Ready for Riverdale, the Darker Archie TV Show?

Riverdale, the live-action TV show based on Archie Comics first announced in summer 2015, now has an official release date: Thursday, January 26, 2017. The show’s time slot will be Thursdays at 9 PM ET on the CW. According to the press release, the show “has been described as a subversive take on the classic Archie mythos.” I don’t know that that’s what I think Archie needs, but I know a lot of TV and movie adaptations of comics recently […]

Young Justice Gets Third Season Due to Fan Support

Earlier this year, there was a movement to demonstrate continued interest in Young Justice, the Cartoon Network animated series featuring adolescent DC superheroes that ran from 2010-2013. (It was called Young Justice: Invasion in the second season, which aged up the characters a bit.) Now comes the good news! Warner Bros. Animation has announced that they will be producing a third season. No information on where or when the new episodes will air, but original showrunners Brandon Vietti and Greg […]

Constantine Now Available on Home Video

The forgotten black sheep of the DC comic TV show family is Constantine, because it’s the one (so far) from the modern era that’s gotten cancelled. Thirteen episodes ran on NBC from October 2014 to February 2015. (With a followup guest appearance on Arrow the next year that was quite good.) It was a strange choice to begin with — the comic Constantine was known for his anti-hero status, for friendly characters getting killed, for pushing boundaries, for bad language […]

Marvel Announces New TV Series Pilot for Another Streaming Service

Marvel’s gotten good press from its series on Netflix, with Jessica Jones getting lots of great reaction; Daredevil having multiple seasons; and the coming release of Luke Cage on September 30 much anticipated. This is in contrast to the mixed performance of Marvel’s shows on traditional networks. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC has struggled, although the movie tie-in gave it a boost, and the planned Mockingbird spin-off Marvel’s Most Wanted was not picked up. The best of them all, Agent […]

The Flash Cast Promotes Careers in STEM

It’s a fairly standard PSA, but I’m glad to see the cast of The Flash — Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, and Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon (although he isn’t given much to say) — promoting careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) for students. It’s a great match for that show, which with Cisco and Caitlin, makes science look fun and useful. It’s part of the CW Good charity promotion, plugging the STEM […]

If you’re like me and you enjoy watching Lucifer, you’ll want to know that the first season will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on August 23. Even if you haven’t tried it yet, you should check it out as a fun twist on the lightly supernatural procedural. Although the premise is the same as the Vertigo comic — a bored Lucifer leaves Hell and starts running a nightclub in Los Angeles, accompanied by his demonic assistant, who tends bar […]
