Will iZombie Have Another Season?

I probably shouldn’t have used that headline, since the answer to headline questions is usually “no”, but I hope that’s not the case. However, last month, the CW renewed all of their comic book shows — Riverdale (for season 3), Arrow (season 7), Black Lightning (season 2), Legends of Tomorrow (season 4), The Flash (season 5), and Supergirl (season 4) — except for iZombie. The fun procedural is in its fourth season, and it’s doing some weird things, turning Seattle […]

Dear White People Returns May 4

Dear White People, the Netflix show based on the 2014 movie, drops all ten episodes of season two on May 4. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing review episodes, and I couldn’t stop watching this fascinating and addictive show, binging all the episodes today. Justin Simien wrote and directed the movie, and he is executive producer, director, writer and co-showrunner on this as well with Yvette Lee Bowser. As in the first season, most of the episodes center on one […]

Black Lightning DVD Set Announced

I spent the weekend binging the first season of Black Lightning, and I loved it! It’s tough to combine superhero action with cultural commentary, but this CW show makes a valiant attempt, with the added benefit of my new favorite, Thunder (Nafessa Williams), the first black lesbian superhero on TV. Cress Williams anchors the show, whether he’s playing the title powers, the community-leading school principal Jefferson Pierce, or family man coping with his daughters’ discoveries of their abilities and potentially […]

This Should Be Worth Watching: Astro City to Get TV Show

Astro City is one of those high-quality, long-running comics that’s too easily ignored because it feels as though it’s always been there, and the issues are always good reads. Admittedly, the nostalgia approach it takes to the Silver Age of superhero comics may not be to everyone’s taste, but many of the stories are about a lot more than “what if Superman needed some time off?”, and for older comic readers, there’s nothing else acknowledging meaningful adult concerns within the […]

Usagi Yojimbo, Rabbit Samurai, Optioned for Cartoon

The incredibly long-running Usagi Yojimbo comic — most recent issue was #165 in December, and it’s all been written and drawn by one guy, Stan Sakai, with colors by Tom Luth — has been optioned for an animated TV series by the French company Gaumont. Co-producers will include Sakai, Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg, and James Wan’s Atomic Monster (which is best known for horror movies and the MacGyver relaunch). Gaumont’s President of Animation, Nicolas Atlan, said […]

Neat Vampire Show Running on CW Seed

Before he was grumpy military cop on Hawaii Five-O, Alex O’Loughin starred in the 2007 series Moonlight as a modern-day vampire who hooks up with a reporter (Sophia Myles, “The Girl in the Fireplace” on Doctor Who). I started watching it because his vampire mentor is played by Jason Dohring (Veronica Mars), but I was quickly sucked into the moody crime-fighting drama. Emphasis on the drama, as Alex’s character has an ex-wife (who turned him, played by Shannyn Sossamon) and […]

DC Can’t Let Go of Cities Being More Important Than Characters

Word of another DC TV show exclusive to the coming DC digital subscription service has just broken. In addition to the live-action Titans and the animated Harley Quinn show and Young Justice season 3, in 2019, the service will air a 13-episode season of the live-action Metropolis. Yes, in the tradition of Gotham (which has four seasons under its belt, so nothing to sneeze at) and the upcoming Krypton, the city gets star billing. Because that way you don’t have […]
