ARROW Season 1 rewatch, Ep. 2, “Honor Thy Father” / Ep. 3, “Lone Gunmen”

9 Jun

Welcome back to the rewatch, Arrowheads!  We started off with introducing Oliver Queen back to the world after being missing & presumed dead for five years.  But he came back with a mission: to bring justice on the criminals who have corrupted his hometown of Starling City.  And now, he’s got a lot of work to do, and we got some recapping to do too… Continue reading

ARROW Season 1 rewatch, Ep. 1: “Pilot”

1 Jun

Welcome, Arrowheads!  As many longtime NerdLush readers are aware, I started recapping Arrow here around season two, but for a while now, have wanted to go back and recap the first season.  With season five now over (and a significant part of Oliver Queen’s story ended), it seemed like the best time to go back and revisit Arrow season one.   Continue reading

Dusting Off The Shelf: Letter D

25 Jan

For the fourth installment I chose Draft Day. This movie has been sitting on my shelf, in my “to be watched” pile since it’s release. But much like the “to be read” pile beside my bed, that pile just keeps getting higher and higher and this one keeps getting further from the top.

Television Graveyard, plot 16~ Lois & Clark

17 Oct

The early 90s attempted to reignite the love for genre TV. Two shows were already presented in this column- SeaQuest DSV & The Flash– but the primary networks had several other shows on air that they used to try to bring in the genre crowd. NBC ran a pair of dramas on Saturday night- The Pretender and Profiler– that they used to dominate the thrill/suspense group. CBS was king of the mysteries. And ABC had a tight grip on the “family” audience with their Friday night line-up of sitcoms. So they tried their darnedest to transfer that audience to a genre with the family friendly Superman series, Lois & Clark.

Supergirl: do you believe a girl can fly?

21 Nov

This is not a review. There haven’t been enough episodes to truly review this series yet. This is, instead, me working out whether or not Supergirl is worth my time.

Television Graveyard- plot 13, Birds of Prey

7 Aug

Towards the end of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the WB* attempted to keep the Girl Power strong with their network by bringing in some DC characters. After all, the WB was riding high on Smallville‘s success. They still had Charmed, but they seemed to want some ladies who kicked ass, without the cartoony silliness the Halliwell sisters sometimes got into- I don’t mock, still love Charmed!

*yes, I know that Buffy was on UPN for it’s last two years, but we all know the WB still thought of it as their baby.

What they got was thirteen episodes of what could’ve been awesome.

BirdsofPrey

‘Could’ve been’ being the operative phrase. Of course, the fact that I own the DVDs also says that while the show wasn’t great, Birds of Prey was a lot of fun. And it had so much potential. Continue reading

An Open Letter to TNT. (or why I had to switch channels)

15 Jan

Dear TNT,

Hey- how are you? I like what you’ve been doing lately. For the most part. I mean- the original programming? Fantastic! You’ve got a really good thing going on!

Keep up the great work. Continue reading

Mid-season hiatus… What now????

8 Dec

The holidays are great, right? Pretty decorations, presents, family, food, and lots of shiny baubles to distract me! But… the holidays also mean that your favorite TV shows are taking a break. Sometimes it’s a short break- just til January- but many shows today are breaking til March and allowing other shows to sneak into their timeslot.  Continue reading

And The Next Round of TV Minicaps Goes To…

26 Nov

Stewart here…

Well, I just recently finished doing minicaps for Smallville, which I’ll admit took longer than I planned to do and ultimately finish. It was laid out as a year long job, and thanks to tons of mitigating factors out of my control, took almost a year and a half. But here I am, at the end of it, and now the question I have is: what show will I review next? Continue reading

The Smallville season 10 minicaps wishes you a fond farewell…and okay, NOW you can cue the theme music!

Stewart here…

Ten seasons have boiled down to this. The threat of Darkseid is looming closer than anyone can suspect, the alt reality Lionel is still running around, Ollie is under the influence of Darkseid’s prophets of doom, and after a almost fatal incident, Lois has gotten cold feet about the wedding to Clark. A lot is going to happen to before its over, along with a few deaths and a rebirth, but most importantly, it’s time for Clark Kent to live up to his destiny and fight the darkness. Go get ’em, Clark.
