ARROW Season 7×11, “Past Sins” recap

29 Jan

Welcome back, Arrowheads! With Oliver Queen now a hero deputized to work with the Star City police, he starts looking into the Faux Arrow that’s been running around taking down bad guys while he was in prison. His investigation comes to a shocking conclusion: the new vigilante is his hidden half-sister Emiko! How will Ollie deal with this revelation, especially since last we saw him, he just met Emiko for the first time? And how will Diggle’s plan to reactivate the Ghost Initiative fare, especially since the first “recruit” is none other than Ricardo Diaz? Let’s find out… Continue reading

ARROW Season 7×10, “My Name Is Emiko Queen” recap

23 Jan

Welcome back from the winter break, Arrowheads! So we we’re gone from these separate recaps a bit longer than usual thanks to Elseworlds, but here’s where we left off: Ollie has another half-sister, and she’s our Faux Green Arrow! While we wait for those two to meet, Ollie has been deputized by the CCPD so he can bring his vigilante skills to proper law enforcement. His old nemesis Ricardo Diaz is locked up, but seems to be getting a second chance offered to him by…Diggle? And we haven’t even mentioned in the future flashforwards that our heroes need to get in touch with the now mayor of The Glades…Rene! Well, let’s start there with this recap… Continue reading

Guest Post!!~ Attending Conventions as a Senior

18 Dec

Barbara is back to share her thoughts on attending conventions at a certain age…

*****************************************************

When I was younger (much) I took my kids to Star Trek Conventions… little ones in neighboring towns and big ones in LA. The three of us were on our own a lot and cons were a cheap way of spending the day together, having fun mostly looking. Turns out both kids were incipient nerds and enjoyed themselves very much. He got into comic books and she got into fandom.

Now I am considerably older; with the attendant aches and pains and she takes me to the cons. Continue reading

DC Recap Round-Up 2, Week 10: Midseason Finales and a check up on TITANS!

16 Dec

Welcome back! As this is the last Recap Round-Up for 2018, let’s just throw out a scheduling reminder that while Legends of Tomorrow will be taking a break when we come back in January, we still got The Flash, Supergirl, and Black Lightning in the meantime to hold things down. For right now, we got the mid season ends of Black Lightning and Legends of Tomorrow to recap, as well as another check-in on Titans to see if its improved since its rocky start (short answer: surprisingly, yes). So let’s jump into it… Continue reading

ARROW Season 7×08, “Unmasked” recap

8 Dec

Welcome back, Arrowheads! So after a deal is made with the FBI, it looked like Oliver Queen was finally getting out Slabside Prison, and he did, but not before Diaz showed up and took over the place. Diaz got defeated and left in jail, while Ollie got to taste freedom after so many months is captivity. But he’s got a lot to deal with now, like what will he do now that he’s a free man, that hint that Felicity has gone dark side, and who is that faux Green Arrow running around town? We’ll get some answers to that here, but first… Continue reading

DC Recap Round-up 2, Week 9: Breaking Time Once Again!

6 Dec

Welcome back! So this is really the last full Recap Round-Up of the year, mostly because next week will be TWO installments. One will be entirely on the Elseworlds crossover, the other will be involving the mid-season ends of Legends of Tomorrow and Black Lightning, plus another quick check-in on the first season of Titans. I hope that’s not too confusing. Anyway, let’s jump in… Continue reading

DC Recap Round-Up 2, Week 8: Feasting on Leftovers!

4 Dec

Welcome back! We got this and another week of full programming before we get into the scheduling weirdness that is going to be the Elseworlds crossover and what isn’t covered by it. But that’s my problem and you’ll see my solution eventually, but until then, let’s just jump in… Continue reading

ARROW Season 7×07, “The Slabside Redemption” recap

29 Nov

Welcome back, Arrowheads! Well, Oliver Queen may finally get out of jail, thanks to an FBI deal where he’ll give intel on the newly captured Ricardo Diaz’s operation. And that’s all great news, since Ollie has become aware his new prison buddy, Stanley, probably is guilty of murder, especially now in the walls of Slabside. So, I guess there’s nothing left to do but just quietly wait until it’s time to go home, right? Wrong. So. Very. WRONG. Continue reading
