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 […]

The Flash: The Complete Fourth Season

Review by KC Carlson The fourth season of The Flash was not quite as much fun as the third season but still had some great moments — including the long sequence of episodes featuring Ralph Dibny, the Elongated Man (played by Hartley Sawyer — which is also a great superhero secret identity-type name). Yeah, I know that he wasn’t very much like the Ralph Dibny from the comic books at all. But the comic book Ralph barely appears anymore, so […]

Lucifer: The Complete Third Season

One of my favorite guilty enjoyment TV shows has a new season now available on DVD. Lucifer: The Complete Third Season is a mixed bag. The show got further into mythology this go-around, which could sometimes seem a little strained, but the stand-alone episodes are just wonderful, and I enjoyed the continuing character development. (The studio, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, provided me with a free review copy of this DVD set. My opinions are mine. Lucifer is based on the […]

Gotham: The Complete Fourth Season

Review by KC Carlson I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that many viewers of TV’s Gotham considered its previous season as possibly a transitional one. The recent arrival here of Gotham: The Complete Fourth Season will most likely emphasize that on my second viewing. My re-watching it on Blu-Ray will provide for both crystal clear and murky and moody visual storytelling. Gotta love technology… (Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed here. […]

Riverdale: The Complete Second Season

As a guilty pleasure TV show, Riverdale is more fun in big chunks, which makes the DVD format a great way to indulge. Riverdale: The Complete Second Season is out Tuesday. This season ran 22 episodes instead of the 13 of the first season, so the set is four discs. (Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a review copy of this DVD set.) This was the season where Archie (KJ Apa) became a junior mob enforcer and leader of […]

Black Lightning: The Complete First Season

Black Lightning is the superhero show for adults, those who are concerned with more than battles against cartoon bad guys. The 13-episode first season, out on Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday, is tightly told and full of intriguing ideas. (Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed here. The opinions I share are my own.) Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) has retired from being Black Lightning to concentrate on being the principal of a […]

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 […]
