Lucifer Survives to a Fourth Season!

Lucifer, one of my favorite guilty pleasure watches, was the last DC comic-sourced TV show to get renewed this year. Everything else received the good news in May, but Lucifer‘s third season (DVD out August 28) was its last on Fox, so fans were reduced to a #SaveLucifer campaign and hope. It worked! With, as suits a show starring the devil, a catch. It’s no longer on a network — you’ll have to subscribe to Netflix to see the ten […]

Freedom Fighters: The Ray Comes to DVD With “First Openly Gay Superhero Movie Headliner”

Freedom Fighters: The Ray was a short cartoon that ran on the CW Seed as a tie-in to last year’s CW superhero TV show crossover, “Crisis on Earth-X”. It was only six episodes, a bit over half an hour of material, exploring his origin and background and setting up the Ray as the CW’s first gay superhero. Now that material will be expanded into a 72-minute release available on Blu-ray (with DVD and digital included, suggested price of $19.98) or […]

Resident Alien May Become a TV Series

What great news! I’d watch a Resident Alien TV show. The comic series by Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse is on its fifth miniseries with An Alien in New York, and over the run, the flexibility of the concept has been amply demonstrated. I can see it as a procedural, with a case of the week while the bigger storyline, about an alien’s impressions of humanity and his need to stay hidden, continues in the background. In the comic, Dr. […]

DC TV Shows Not Doing So Well on Fox, Two New Concepts Announced

It’s the time of year when TV networks present their show schedules for the coming year to advertisers (called the “upfronts”), so there’s been lots of news regarding what’s coming back and what’s been cancelled. While iZombie got renewed at the last minute (for what will be its final season), and all of the CW’s DC shows are safe (given their sister company status, not terribly surprising), the DC shows on Fox aren’t doing quite as well. Lucifer, which I […]
