DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Now THAT’s a Season Finale!

The only superhero TV show I’m actively eager to watch these days is DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, because it’s crazy fun. The “time-traveling losers” premise — the team members were selected because removing them from the timeline wouldn’t have any effect — allows for all kinds of stories in all kinds of places and times. They’ve done episodes about how important the movies of George Lucas were to inspiring people to become scientists and one where the women and people […]

Aggretsuko Comes to Netflix April 20

Out April 20 is a new animated show on Netflix. Aggretsuko consists of ten 15-minute episodes about Retsuko, a 25-year-old red panda who is an office associate in the accounting department of a trading company in Tokyo. All she wants is to do her job and get through the day, but when frustrations reach a boiling point, she vents through death metal karaoke. She’s cute, because she was originally created by Sanrio, owners of Hello Kitty, but I could relate […]

Steven Universe: The Complete First Season

OK, I’m a convert. Now that I’ve watched Steven Universe: The Complete First Season, I get why fans are so dedicated to this show, with its themes of love, family, and acceptance. In that way, this late release (the show is up to season five) worked. I hope there are more coming, particularly at this affordable price. Steven (voiced by Zach Callison) lives with three cosmic warriors, the Crystal Gems Garnet (quiet and powerful, Estelle), Amethyst (laid back and sloppy, […]

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

You can’t go home again. We learned that Thanksgiving 2016 when these four Gilmore Girls mini-movies first dropped on Netflix. Now, they’re available on Blu-ray or DVD for non-subscribers or those who’d like to watch without an internet connection. Ten years later, Stars Hollow is as wacky as ever, and Lorelei (Lauren Graham) still talks a mile a minute, but Rory’s (Alexis Bledel) not as cute when she’s a mid-30s gadabout who doesn’t know what she really wants to do […]

Luke Cage: The Complete First Season

Luke Cage is the first Marvel Netflix series I’ve had the chance to see, thanks to them sending me a copy of the Blu-ray release of the Complete First Season. As we meet him, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) is an ex-con reduced to working menial under-the-table jobs for cash. He’s clearly capable of a lot more, but he makes the best he can of the life he has, and I love seeing how mature and responsible he is. It’s great […]

iZombie: The Complete Third Season

iZombie: The Complete Third Season, available on Tuesday, has the 13 episodes of this season on a well-priced DVD set. (The Blu-ray is available through Warner Archive. The studio, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, provided me with a free review copy of this DVD set. My opinions below are mine.) At the end of last season, there was a massive zombie outback as military contractor Fillmore Graves took over energy drink producer (and zombie creator) Max Rager. After surviving that, season […]

Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season

In Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season, as we pick up from last year, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is mayor. Black Canary (Katie Cassidy) and Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) are both dead, and Oliver has no problem, it seems, continuing to kill people. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), who’s walked away from their relationship, is still monitoring his superhero actives as Arrow. (And she has a code name, Overwatch.) She encourages him to form a new team of vigilantes with Wild Dog […]
