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 […]

The Flash: The Complete Third Season

Review by KC Carlson The third season of The Flash has some great moments, to be sure: “Duet” (the musical episode), “Invasion!” (the Flash’s chapter in a four-way crossover of DC TV shows with Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl), and the SFX tour de force starring Grodd that was “Attack on Gorilla City”, to name just a few. (The studio, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, provided me with a free review copy of this DVD set. My opinions below […]

Supergirl: The Complete Second Season

Big changes took place between Supergirl‘s first season (which aired on CBS) and the second one. With the move to the CW network came some cast changes, a new set for the DEO organization scenes, and a new direction for several of the characters. (The studio, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, provided me with a free review copy of this season set. My opinions below are mine.) Gone are evil mogul Maxwell Lord (Peter Facinelli), love rival Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan […]

Lucifer: The Complete Second Season

In Lucifer: The Complete Second Season, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and his brother Amenadiel (who’s concerned about losing his powers; played by D.B. Woodside) are looking for their mother (Tricia Helfer), who has escaped from Hell. Lucifer is trying to be honest with Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) about who and what he really is, but Amenadiel doesn’t want her to know. Plus, her ex-husband (Kevin Alejandro) is back on the force but demoted after last season’s events, so she’s now […]

Gotham: The Complete Third Season

Review by KC Carlson Gotham is one of those shows that I think I appreciate watching on disc more than watching on live TV. I got so annoyed with the long breaks on the “live” TV” schedule last season. (Only three new episodes aired between the end of November and the end of April.) Is it any wonder I forgot what was going on — especially since I was watching all those other DC shows on other networks that were […]
