Katy Keene is kaput. (Although a vampire show written by Roberto Aquiree-Sacasa on ABC would’ve been terrible, I’m more upset by The Brides not getting picked up because it deprives Gina Torres & Erin Richards of showing off their fangs.) They should’ve made Josie & The Pussycats (In Outer Space) with Keene as their supporting stylist instead! At least it won’t be confusing with the CW simultaneously airing series starring Katy Keene & Kate Kane anymore… Oh yeah, this article is about me overthinking exactly how Batwoman season two is doomed.
The recent earthquake in Tulsa, Oklahoma heralded me finishing viewing HBO’s Watchmen! I finally got to watch it when HBO put it up for free Juneteenth weekend. Hot on the paws of Cats, here’s my cold take on HBO’s Watchmen! I did it thirty-five minutes ago. You’ve probably seen it by now too, but the nonlinear Spoiler Warning remains at one minute to midnight. Much like the original, it doesn’t center around a timepiece-themed team. I believe their continued omission is a mistake!
You ever have one of those days where you’re exhausted even though you didn’t do anything? 2020 is shaping up to be a full year of them. The Murder Hornets were merely a distraction from mosquitoes spreading EEE! This week both Denny O’Neil & Sir Ian Holm passed away.
Last week I proposed not writing something topical, which is why I’m not going to do the sensible thing to draw in readers by reviewing Kipo & The Age Of Wonderbeasts season two. (It may technically be the back half of season one based on production windows.) You should be watching this delightful series anyway. If only Karen Fukuhara could speak as much in live action roles as she gets to in animation! Apparently it began as a webcomic. Why must its merch be so pricey?
Now, because no one demanded it, Cats cold takes!
Hey, it’s a comic book (not live action) custom! I haven’t had one here since Tombstone? I repaint most of my toys, but often just for shading & touch-ups. I was originally going to leave the Kyle Rayner I got for Christmas alone, but it’s not like I had anything better to do during quarantine. (My unfinished second novel weeps.) This fella was simple but turned out so well I thought I might as well share.
Unlike Batwoman, Supergirl, & The Flash, Legends Of Tomorrow was able to finish its season as planned! Fates be praised! So did Black Lightning & Arrow, but LOT is more enjoyable overall. Are you prepared for SPOILERS for season five of Leg Ends Of Tom Or Row? If not, various Mr. Parker’s Cul-De-Sac snippets wound up on YouTube.
Now that The Flash, Batwoman, & Supergirl have ended for the year, it’s time for Agents of SHIELD to return for its last hurrah! (The She-Ra & The Princesses Of Power reboot also ended for good recently.) My fave character is Shieldo! While Marvel often releases big news right when DC does something, this time the shoe is on the other foot! More on that after the time travel SPOILERS!
First came The Flash’s shortened season six, then there was She-Ra & The Princesses of Power full fifth season. Now it’s time to cover Batwoman’s & Supergirl’s abrupt season finales. If you’re not going by calendar cutoffs, that’s three articles I’ve run within a single week! (Will I be obligated to write up Stargirl too?) Double-length SPOILERS ahead for two series not not resuming until 2021!
Hot on the heels of The Flash’s inadvertent sixth season finale, here comes She-Ra & The Princesses Of Power’s planned “fifth” & final season! Unlike season two, Netflix has blessed us with all the episodes at once! Rejoice in SPOILERS! If you’d prefer them musically, Catra sings the ominous minor key cover of the themesong fit for a modern horror film commercial. Then return soon for Supergirl’s & Batwoman’s season finale reviews!
The Flash claims to be the fastest man alive, so his season is ending quicker than expected. (Just as his boast is questionable, Arrow & Black Lightning finished for the year sooner.) Much like Riverdale, The Flash season six got shorted on its last three episodes due to coronavirus shutting down production. (“The Flash Runs Out” was the runner-up headline.) I was planning on making this a humongous Beeboverse blog covering Supergirl & Batwoman too, but they don’t finish until Sunday. Look for that next week. (She-Ra’s last season drops between then, so maybe that’ll run sooner.) Incomplete SPOILERS to follow!
