Batman: The Brave and the Bold Season Three on Blu-ray

Completing the trilogy of seasons, Warner Archive has released season three of Batman: The Brave and the Bold on Blu-ray.

The season begins with “Joker: The Vile and the Villainous!”, an episode from the villain’s perspective as he teams up with his inspiration, the Golden Age […]

Thirteen Women

I watched Thirteen Women, a 1932 proto-thriller, because I was inspired by the impressively good You Must Remember This podcast, which has started a new series on “Dead Blondes”. It sounds morbid, but it’s an interesting way to explore how women are sold as sex objects and often end up the worse for it. The first episode focused on Peg Entwistle, whom you’ve likely never heard of. She’s best known, if at all, for being the woman who committed suicide […]

iZombie Gets Blu-ray Release, Season 2 Out Today

When iZombie (a wonderfully fun and suspenseful TV show) came out on DVD last fall, unlike the superhero DC TV shows, it didn’t get a Blu-ray release. Warner Bros.

Which is a way for dedicated fans, either of the show or the format, to demonstrate their desire for the product without the company having to commit to up-front print runs or distribution.

Young Justice: Invasion

OK, everyone who told me, when I said I didn’t like Young Justice, that it got better, was right. Young Justice: Invasion, the renamed second and final season of the animated series, is much more watchable. In fact, I enjoyed it enough to watch the whole thing in one long day. At the start of this season, we’ve jumped ahead in time five years, which means the characters aren’t so whiny and juvenile, a plus. The overarching theme is battling […]
