Welcome back to another DC TV Round-Up! This time around, I thought we should change things up a bit and give Arrow a break from this column (its not like we don’t cover that show its own here already), which leaves a hole to check out some of the other non-CW related shows that are DC related. So besides the regular talk about The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow, this week we’ll take a look at the premiere of the not so serious NBC workplace/superhero related comedy Powerless. So let’s start there… Continue reading
Welcome to the first official installment of the DC TV Recap Round-up! If you read last week’s winter break recap, we are back to regularly scheduled programming. Obviously Arrow is covered in greater detail on this site, but we’ll briefly discuss that before jumping into returning favorites like The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow. So… Continue reading
As I do recaps of Arrow here (and still will be despite this recap round-up), I also find myself lacking little to no time to cover some of the other DC related shows on TV right now. Instead of trying to cover each individually and in depth, leading to delays (you know, like those missing posts on Legends of Tomorrow I have failed to turn in…), I thought it might be a easy and inventive solution to try some quick weekly recaps of shows like Legends, as well as some other shows I don’t cover for NerdLush, like The Flash and Supergirl. I might do some other DC shows in the downtime, but for now, lets stick to The CW’s crop. First up: Continue reading
Welcome back, Arrowheads! So let’s just put away all the drama of Prometheus and Vigilante and all that for this week, and let’s talk about what happened to most of Team Arrow in The Flash literally yesterday. First off, Earth is being invaded by not so pleasant aliens known as the Dominators, and just about every hero related to The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow. Heck, we get a legitimate Supergirl to join the festivities! As our team was just getting to the assembling part, Ollie, Thea, Diggle, Sara, and Ray are beamed away by the aliens to…well, where did they go? Continue reading
Not gonna lie- I started watching Supergirl when it premiered and after a few weeks it went to the DVR back burner… not because it wasn’t fun but it conflicted with another show and I’m lazy. But with the recent release of season 1 on DVD I’ve been binging.
And it has been a most pleasant binge. Continue reading
Welcome back, Arrowheads! If you haven’t heard the news yet, best to sit down for this headline: Laurel Lance is dead. I know what you’re asking, and it might be “Is she dead?” or “Is she really dead?”. Seems like “really dead” is the current answer right now. After discovering Diggle’s brother Andy is a straight up traitor and with Darhk killing Laurel, this has been a bad week for Team Arrow. And what about Quentin, who now has to bury another daughter? Let’s just get to it… Continue reading
Welcome back, Arrowheads! If you haven’t figured it out, this is the second half of a big Arrow/Flash crossover (which you can read the first half recap on A&V Stimuli), so let’s stick to what we learned on the Flash end: Vandal Savage, an immortal hunter who has been part of the big events of human history, visited Central City to kill Cisco’s new girlfriend, Kendra. Why? As we learn from a winged man (as in a man with hawk wings) called Carter Hall, she and him are lovers who have spent thousands of years being reincarnated and killed by Savage. When Barry Allen feels the Flash isn’t enough to stop him, he seeks Team Arrow’s help. Bad news, they can’t stop Savage, and with Savage recovering a superpowered staff, it looks like things are gonna get worse.
Welcome back, Arrowheads, for this look at the good and bad of the third season of Arrow! Considering how much I enjoyed season two, would this season measure up? The short answer is: not really. The long answer we’ll start talking about below, beginning with the good points of season three: Continue reading
Welcome back, Arrowheads, to the end of season three of Arrow! It’s been a long road of twists and turns, but here we are, as the Heir to the Demon, aka Al-Sah-him, aka The Arrow, aka Oliver Queen, is about to cement his place in the League of Assassins. He’s already been married off to a reluctant Nyssa, seemingly gassed his former teammates with a deadly virus, the same virus he fought to stop being unleashed in Hong Kong years ago, and now that he has to unleash on Starling City! Can all the lunacy, betrayals, and tragedy that have happened all season be solved in this season finale? Probably not, but let’s see what happens anyway…
