Prodigal Son: The Complete Second Season

I didn’t watch Prodigal Son. I gave it a try, because Good Omens and Staged made me a huge fan of Michael Sheen, and this was such an unusual choice for a role. He plays a convicted serial killer whose son (Tom Payne) is a really messed up (obviously) profiler for the FBI and NYPD. The son is able to think like a killer but lives in fear he will become like his father. I didn’t stick with it, though, […]

The Herculoids: The Complete Original Series

review by KC Carlson I always knew that the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoons of the 1960s were kinda odd (like super-powered ants and brain-dead detective squirrels —- and that’s just the start), but for the strangest of the strange, you should check out the new Warner Archive Blu-ray collection of The Herculoids: The Complete Original Series. (The studio provided a review copy.) The show originally debuted on September 9, 1967, on CBS. It centered around the family of Zandor (father), Tara […]

Doom Patrol: The Complete Second Season

I have done myself, and you, a disservice, by watching Doom Patrol: The Complete Second Season several months ago (it was released at the end of January), making notes, and then neglecting to write them up while I still remembered the details of the show. (The studio provided a review copy.) Now, the main recollection I have of these nine episodes is that I’m glad they got me to watch the first season of the show, because it’s a refreshingly […]

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Fifth Season

I still love Legends of Tomorrow. The show has a sense of fun and playfulness and not-taking-anything-too-seriously that is so necessary to keep from getting bored of superheroics on TV. So many of the episodes and seasons follow formula — and those expectations are part of the genre, and there’s nothing wrong with that — that I want a little something more to keep my interest. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Fifth Season came out in September, but since […]

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 […]
