Is Elseworlds The Best Of All Possible Worlds?

This Elseworlds crossover does double duty as the midseason finales for The Flash, Supergirl, & Arrow. As befits the Freaky Friday conceit, the typical airing day of the shows have been scrambled. Fortunately The Flash had its 100th episode last week so it won’t have to celebrate that too, unlike the Arrow third of Invasion!  Although this year’s crossover is missing its Legends of Tomorrow component, I’ll still be discussing “Legends of To-Meow-Meow” below. If I make any errors in my SPOILERIFIC review, it’s because reality got warped again.

Thanksgiving For She-Ra!

I never watched the original She-Ra & the Princesses of Power (ditto He-Man & the  Masters of the Universe, though I don’t believe any of them mastered universes based on the movie adaptation I have seen), but my sister had most of the toys. I really enjoyed Noelle Stevenson’s Nimona (Which knight should Lee “Hammertime Piemaker” Pace voice in the movie?), but I didn’t like Lumberjanes as much because I needed more than one panel of The Holy Kitten! Her She-Ra reboot, however, is legitimutantly delightful! It’s reminiscent of the gone-too-soon Thundercats relaunch, particularly in its mythology. Like the new Ducktales & TMNT, it finds plenty of room for comedic characterization betwixt the action. (There’a lot of histrionic face-squishing!) The new intro is a definite improvement over the expository original. The bright pastel colors maintain a retro 80’s vibe. This seems like the opposite approach that David Goyer would’ve taken, & that is for the best! Catch the SPOILER cooties below because PRINCESSES ARE CONTAGIOUS MONSTERS!

Legends of Tomorrow … Belated!

Now that The Flash, Black Lightning, Supergirl, & Arrow have had their season premieres, it’s finally time for Legends Of Tomorrow! (I’m honestly not sure if Supergirl’s writing has become politically savvier or if the real world political climate has degenerated to its level.) With Better Call Saul out of the way, it’ll be unstoppable! This is late because I had to review two Netflix shows in a row before they evaporated from the mainstream attention span. Then real life stuff pushed it back further. This is a series about time travel hijinks so being belated is almost apropos. In addition to assorted season four spoilers, I’ll throw in bonus Gotham season five news! Nobody’s gonna read this, are they?

The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina Will Bewitch You

Netflix finally unleashed The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina upon the mortal realm! (Castlevania season two is also streaming, although I’m still not clear why it’s packaged in separate episodes rather than an animated movie.) I’m going to do a SPOILER review of the whole spooky season below!

Is Daredevil Season 3 A Bullseye?

I successfully didn’t watch Arrow’s season seven premiere! I did see Daredevil season three. Remember when Netflix used to space these out? Dare you read down into SPOILERS? Please do or I wrote this for nothing.

Bullseye’s favorite song is “Take Me Out” by Franz Ferdinand, & his favorite store is Target.

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!
