Does Superman & Lois Hammer The Beeboverse Into Shape?

As I promised, I survived seeingĀ  The Suicide Squad a second time on HBO Max. (Where can I see a clean version of the new poster with Task Force X taking a group nap?) It’s still a grisly good time!

Now it’s time for the first season finale review of Superman & Lois, which aired on Lois lane’s birthday. How dare they preempt it again for baseball! The damn Yankees are history’s greatest criminals for preventing me from publishing this post promptly! This has SPOILERS for the episodes I’ve not blogged about since the second. (Eventually I’ll blog about the rest of Supergirl season six too.)

Legends Of Tomorrow … IN SPACE!

Now that I’ve finished badmouthing Batwoman for the time being, we can move on to the best of the Beeboverse! Legends of Tomorrow would never insult Bat-Shark Repellent! This was one of the rare series that was able to finish its 2020 run uninterrupted. Living up to its title, this is the last Beeboverse show to return. Since most of the more punctual series (Batwoman, The Flash, Supergirl) are still set in 2020, why isn’t anybody wearing a Fatewatch? SPOILERS abound for “Ground Control To Sara Lance” & the extended trailer! Thankfully my CW affiliate didn’t preempt it like the latest Supergirl & Nancy Drew. Beebo is the only cure for The Anti-Life Equation.

Supergirl’s Swansong Starts In Season Six

Supergirl’s sixth & final season didn’t have a trailer until a week before its premiere? The CW is giving it the Black Lightning season four treatment. (At least it appears to be getting unique “next week” promos.) It’s taking the time slot of Superman & Lois until it resumes in May. Is this the first time superfriends Kara & Barry have regularly aired the same night? Here is your obligatory SPOILER warning for what ought to have been its fifth season finale. There some The Flash & Justice League stuff too if you’d prefer not to stay on topic.

The New Adventures Of Superman & Lois

Hasbro’s first Marvel Fan First Friday of 2021 didn’t unveil a Marvel Legends of Polaris from The Gifted. This is both underwhelming (because she deserves one) & a relief (since I just made one). So although I may have jumped the gun on that, I’m arguably punctual for the series premiere of Superman & Lois! The Flash’s return was supposed to lead into this but got pushed back a week. (I’ll cover that next week ahead of Wandavision.) The CW let this series premiere run long & then put a special afterwards to fill up the remainder, but you didn’t miss anything if you skipped that. Do I need to make a specific tag for this show since its title is so close to the “Superman” one I already use? Lois & Clark had the better title. SPOILERS are up, up, down, down, & away!

Legends Of Tomorrow Season Five Is A Lot Of Fun!

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.

Batwoman & Supergirl Don’t Have The World’s Finest Season Finales

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!

Toy Fair & Supergirl Are Inequitable … Again?

But I already wrote wrote about Toy Fair & Supergirl! Neither episode set at the National City Toy Fair overlapped with the New York Toy Fair. Last time I even reviewed another Mr. Mxyzptlk story. What fearful symmetry! With history repeating, here’s a SPOILER recap of Supergirl’s hundredth episode following my second-hand coverage of Toy Fair! I’m skipping conversation on the retro rehashes because that trend needs to be thrown into the sun!

‘Cause We Are Living In A Post-Crisis World …

The CW’s DC Comics shows used to be unofficially Pre-Crisis. Then Crisis On Infinite Earths changed everything. Now the Beeboverse has irrevocably became a Post-Crisis world. This is much nerdier than prime time network TV used to be! Well, one network is nerdy at least. CW scheduling as been erratic since. I finally decided to publish my Post-Crisis impressions now rather than wait for them to get on relatively the same page. So here’s the tardiest (Green) Arrow series finale review plus miscellaneous SPOILERS for the other Beeboverse series. We also have more to say about Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey & The Batman.

Climax Of Crisis On Infinite Earths!

Last week was Marvelous, but now for the conclusion of Crisis On Infinite Earths! (Can you believe the first chunk aired last decade?) The CW gave early renewals to all its DC shows except Arrow, so that may be a pretty big spoiler. Now read onward for the more specific SPOILERS!

Crisis On Infinite Earths: Multiverse of Madness!

The final installments of Pre-Crisis TV have aired. The crossover even that’s been foreshadowed ever since The Flash’s series premiere is finally here! Not even the DCAU attempted a direct Crisis On Infinite Earths adaptation! I have some concerns over how they’ll pull off the whole shebang in just five episodes (if you don’t count all the prior build-up), especially with Marc Guggenheim is overseeing it. It’s at a disadvantage of not being able to include characters from every DC adaptation ever made. I’m gonna watch it anyway!

This crossover is instantly better than last year’s for including the Feet of the Future Leg-Ends of Tomorrow! It also contains more Elseworlds. Wasn’t it established The CW’s multiverse only has fifty-three alternate universes? Why are these Earth #’s so high? Granted Crisis On Fifty-Three Earths doesn’t sound as thrilling. Maybe the real Crisis On Infinite Earths is needing to save Lodge 49? (Which Earths has it not been cancelled on?) It’s a SPOILER that nothing below will make a lick of sense if you’re not up on your CW DC, although that may make it more entertaining.
