Legion of Super Heroes: The Complete Series

Review by KC Carlson Recently issued on Blu-ray by Warner Archive is Legion of Super Heroes: The Complete Series. This three-disc set collects the animated cartoon series, which originally aired beginning on September 23, 2006, as a part of the Kids WB! line on the CW network. Producer James Tucker (who was also one of the series’ main character designers and a co-producer of the Justice League Unlimited series, also for Kids WB!) oversaw a total of 26 episodes. The […]

Wonder Woman: The Complete Series Now on Blu-ray

As I previously mentioned, there is a new release of Wonder Woman: The Complete Series on Blu-ray. Thanks to the studio, I was sent a copy, and I took a quick look at the package this weekend. Note that I will not be talking about specific episodes here. I suspect you know if you want to see them. They’re very 70s, and the ideal audience is nostalgic, with plenty of patience, as they seem slow-paced to a current-day viewer. The […]

Lucifer: The Complete Fourth Season

I finally got a chance to watch Lucifer: The Complete Fourth Season, which came out on DVD in May. (That’s a year after this season debuted on Netflix, which is typical timing.) The season opens with a morose Lucifer, depressed after Chloe saw his real face (at the end of the third season, when he rescued her from assault-rifle attack). She’s bolted, on vacation for a month, so he mopes around, which allows us all a reminder of the key […]

Good Omens

If anyone’s left around here, you may have wondered where I’ve been for the past week or more. I became completely obsessed with Good Omens, which dropped six hour-long episodes on Amazon prime video at the end of May. I’ve already watched it three times so far — once straight through, once just for more of the Boyfriends (and to better understand the setup for a plot twist), and once to share with friends. (Brunch party, with red wine for […]

Krypton: The Complete First Season

I was happy to get a review copy of Krypton: The Complete First Season, because I’m always curious, with so many superhero/comic-related TV shows out there these days, to see what a show is doing differently to set itself apart. Unfortunately, Krypton is full of things that seem familiar and feel as though you’ve seen all this before. There’s a young, generically attractive hero (Seg-El, Superman’s grandfather, played by Cameron Cuffe), rebelling against a harsh, merciless ruling culture. As a […]

The Heart of Batman: The Batman: Complete Animated Series Blu-ray Extra

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment was kind enough to send me a review copy of the on-everyone’s-wish-list Batman: The Complete Animated Series Blu-ray set. Due to the incredible demand, as indicated by the huge increase in the print run, I didn’t get any of the extras, so I can’t speak to those, but I was thrilled to be able to check out the new movie-length feature, “The Heart of Batman”. There are 10 Blu-rays in the set (not counting the movies). […]

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Third Season

Review by KC Carlson DC’s Legends of Tomorrow remains my favorite of the four “Arrowverse” shows (the others are Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl), with its odd collection of mostly broken-down characters rotating in and out, and its constant feeling of the whole thing flying apart in pieces at any given moment. Their motto has now become, “Sometimes we screw things up for the better,” which captures both the optimism and confusion of the endeavor. This season was no exception, […]

Supergirl: The Complete Third Season

Review by KC Carlson I unfortunately had a lot of issues with Supergirl: The Complete Third Season. Those of you who remember me from a previous life as an editor for DC Comics (hired specifically to edit The Legion of Super-Heroes, among other things) can probably guess where this is going. I wasn’t crazy about a lot of things regarding the Legion’s storyline. (Like how three characters can be a Legion of anything!?) But I do have to say that […]
