Static Shock’s Fourth (and Final) Season Coming to DVD

As pointed out by World’s Finest, Warner Archive has posted a listing for Static Shock: The Complete Fourth Season, available April 24 for $24.99. The series, about an electrically powered teen superhero, has been long overdue for collecting, so I’m glad to see they’re going to finish out the series. I’m speculating that this will be a two-disc set, since season 4 consisted of these 13 epsiodes: “Future Shock” – Batman Beyond crossover set in the future “She-Back!” “Out of […]

Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero

The Blu-ray release of Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero is the best argument yet for how any medium can be used to tell substantial, meaningful stories.

I started my viewing with “Heart of Ice” from Batman: The Animated Series, one of the extras. This episode introduces the character and his motivation, revenge on a […]

Riverdale on DVD, Blu-ray on August 15

After complaining about Riverdale early on, I have to admit that the show grew on me. It helped that I quit thinking about it as an Archie comic adaptation and instead approached it as a CW “angsty teen drama“. It made for fun popcorn viewing, particularly as we settled into the characters and how extreme they could be. It was the CW’s top new show this year, so maybe other people felt the same way. In case you missed it […]
