Superman & Lois Blu-ray Set Has Extra Footage

I wasn’t going to mention this, as the show wasn’t for me, but there was one particular item in the press release that intrigued me. (I preferred the idea of the old Lois and Clark, couple flirting and working together and fighting crime, over parental and teen drama.) Superman & Lois: The Complete First Season arrives on October 19 (same day as the complete Smallville). There are 15 episodes on three discs for suggested retail price of $29.98 ($39.99 in […]

Smallville: Complete Series Coming to Blu-ray

This might be the excuse I need to finally sit down and watch Smallville. It seemed cheesy at the time, but now that many of the current superhero TV shows have turned dark, it might be fun to see a younger version of Superman (played by Tom Welling). I seem to remember liking Kristin Kreuk as Lana Lang and Michael Rosenbaum as Lex Luthor, too. To celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary — and my, how time flies — Warner Bros. […]

Hallmark Doctor Who Ornaments Announced

Every year, I’m asked if there’s a Hallmark ornament I’d like. (I have to be asked because I have a history of picking series that end after only a few releases.) This year, the answer was really easy, because Hallmark is releasing two official Doctor Who ornaments. I am not crazy about the colors on the Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor one. There was never that lime color in his scarf, nor the patches of white. You can see […]

Interview With Robert Shearman, Author of Dalek

Out this week in the UK, next month in the US, are a new set of Doctor Who novelizations. Target originally published Doctor Who script adaptations from 1973-1993. BBC Books took up the mantle again with five key episodes from the relaunched series in 2018. This new set, called the Target Collection, consists of seven books: The Witchfinders by Joy Wilkinson, who also wrote the script for this 13th Doctor episode; this is the first novel with the current Doctor […]

Tala Ashe Doing Wizard World Virtual in January

Tala Ashe, who plays Zari (in different versions) on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, will be featured in a Wizard World virtual event in January. The convention company has been arranging these online appearances as a way of making some kind of money in a year where people can’t gather. There’s a free live Q&A on Twitch (which I’ve never used), but there are also opportunities to pay for a private two-minute video chat or buy autographed pictures or purchase a […]

Doctor Who Watch – Because I Needed Another Project

Thanks to encouragement from friends, I decided to create a Tumblr blog called Doctor Who Watch and rewatch Doctor Who. Yes, all of it. I’ll likely alternate between classic and modern, with no promises as to when there will be new posts. I’m starting with the 13th Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, though, in honor of the upcoming New Year’s Special. There has to be some use out of acquiring this many Doctor Who DVDs. I won’t be copying the content here, […]

One More Month for DC Universe

I pretty much stopped news-blogging before DC Universe started, so I haven’t covered it much here. Remember? That was the streaming service launched just before AT&T acquired Warner. It had digital comics; original TV shows (some of which were also aired on the CW when pandemic quarantine shut down production and the TV network needed content); and lots of older video programming. That last item was why I didn’t pay much attention to the service. It turned out that I […]

Doom Patrol Season 2 Coming January

I’ve pretty much given up on most superhero TV shows (with the exception of Legends of Tomorrow) — nothing wrong with them, exactly, only I want to enjoy different kinds of entertainment, most happier or lighter-hearted. I’ve heard good things about Doom Patrol, though, and it seems like my kind of superhero group — a gang of misfits with unusual abilities and backgrounds. (The cast, with Timothy Dalton, Brendan Fraser, Matt Bomer, and April Bowlby, is pretty good, too.) I […]
