Is Supergirl Finally Superb?

I’d erroneously thought Netflix was releasing Daredevil season three, Apostle, & the new The Legend Of Hell House House On Haunted Hill The Haunting Of Hill House  simultaneously. DC Universe did debut Teen Titans … so I guess Supergirl’s season four premiere is up for this week! Up, up, & away with SPOILERS!

Kara Zor-El declined to answer our questions about season three.

Doctor Who & DC Too!

Doctor Who & some DC shows, The Flash & Black Lightning, (plus Riverdale) returned for new seasons. (Meanwhile The Venture Brothers & Lodge 49 just had great season finales.) The Whovian portion could’ve been published separately sooner, but I sacrificed timeliness for a rhyming headline because my priorities are in order! You know the drill: SPOILER reviews down under!

Is Venom Box Office Poison ?

We are The Wages of Cinema collaboreview for Venom! (Not the one where the tow truck driver got possessed by evil souls kept in voodoo snakes nor the one where kidnappers are scared of a single black mamba. At least it isn’t the third remake of A Star Is Born. We need a Venom/”Bad Romance” mashup pronto to quell that bad blood!) Bond with our symbiotic SPOILERS below!

The Gifted’s Second Season Baby Boom!

The GIF Ted has returned! This time Inhumans isn’t back to make it look a zillion times better in comparison. (Marvel may be overcompensating for that failure with the Death of the Inhumans miniseries.) The Gifted season 2 moves to Tuesday at 8, which is The Flash’s time slot. Not cool, Fox! This is as bad as Supergirl & Doctor Who competing against each other. Anyway, SPOILERS for “eMergence” emerge below! This season they’re doing M-titles because they ran out of X-words.

Iron Fist’s Second Season Is A Sucker Punch?

Two big Marvel releases happened on September 7! I don’t have a PS4, however, so no Spider-Man: Ravencroft Asylum for me. That leaves me with … RUH-ROH! I ran a poll on The Twitter to decide whether I ought to subject myself to Iron Fist season two, & seventy-one percent of the voters were sadists.

Or are they? I was expecting to despise this based on its pedigree & underwhelming trailer, but it’s actually not bad? This was actually a bit of a disappointment as it forced my to revise the preliminary draft of schadenfreude I’d written. I’d originally planned to just watch the three episodes IMDB told me Alice Eve was in so Netflix will be forced to put the show out of our misery, but then it turned out she’s in the whole shebang. This was a wise move on the series’ part, as she’s a big reason this season succeeds. Step into the sun chamber for SPOILERS!

How Sinful Is Preacher’s Third Season?

Preacher’s third season has been a catch-22. Preacher purists will dislike it because it’s strays too far from the comics, whereas I think it’s too faithful because I don’t find the comics to be the unimpeachable masterpiece that everyone else does. (Now it’d be a horse of a different color if this was a televisual Transmetropolitan.)

Taking A Stab At Barbara Kean!

Weeks ago, I teased my final Toys R Us receipt. What did I buy? Another Barbara Kean! I just felt so bad these were warming pegs as TRU closed down. She would’ve sold better had they gone with a less passive costume & some accessories she could wield. It was a good motivator for me to finally customize her into a better outfit. Barbara is one of Gotham’s best surprises, but to explain why is a spoiler if you’re not already watching. (My sister said only weirdos watch Gotham. I can’t argue with that. It’s just science.) So watch for me to divulge various season secrets as I show her off below. All I’ll say now is that she’s Gotham City’s Cheryl Blossom, which would make Tabitha Galavan its Toni Topaz. (This analogy will be on the SAT!) So none of this makes sense if you haven’t seen Riverdale either. Ms. Kean puts the arch in arch-criminal. She is as the youths say “EXTRA AF.”
