So with the return of PRISON BREAK for a nine episode run this month, it seemed like a good time to explore where this show has been and where it may go from its four season run. I got interested in the show around its first season, being a fan of shows like 24, which were ambitious for network TV. And this had a interesting premise: a show centered around a prison escape, that would cap off its season with said escape. The big question, like say the setup of 24, was simply: how the hell could you pull this off? Continue reading
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
Welcome back! It’s season finale time, and the team has had to contend with some major reveals, like how they’ve been manipulated by the Time Masters to help Vandal Savage secure a place of power on Earth. That manipulation was to stop an alien invasion in the future, but it also went further, into Rip’s superiors ordering the death of his family! To stick it to the Time Dicks, Snart sacrifices himself to destroy their ability to look into the timeline. That still leaves Kendra and Carter prisoner of Savage, on board his own timeship. So how will this season finale go down? Continue reading
Welcome back! While we seem to have gotten Carter back, we also dropped off Vandal Savage to the Time Masters, who we have discovered are aligned in Savage’s plan for world domination! Also, the team has been detained by the Time Masters, minus a missing Snart and Sara. Rip is also locked away, and Savage lets his adversary know he has to go to a long awaited appointment to kill Rip’s family! So yeah, everyone’s boned…except Jax, who got sent back to 2016 to cure his time rapid aging problem. Where did he end up, anyway? Continue reading
Welcome back! Last time, the team finally got Vandal Savage where they wanted him, but had to take him prisoner when they made a startling discovery. Their teammate, Carter, has been reincarnated and turned into a brainwashed drone of Savage, and only Savage can cure him! So how can they get Savage to cure Carter, while dealing with the whole threat of Time Masters still breathing down their backs? Continue reading
Welcome back! With the Time Masters’ attempts to stop Rip and his team of heroes reaching dangerous levels, the team is left with no option but to face Vandal Savage in the time where he has the most power: the year 2166. Continue reading
Welcome back! So the mission to stop Vandal Savage is running into some delays thanks to those pesky Time Masters. They sent a band of bounty hunters to kill them, and instead, they got themselves killed. And now, the newest plan to stop our heroes is by sending an assassin to kill them all…as their younger selves! So how do they stop a killer that can strike them anytime in their past? As you’ll discover, not as complicated a task as you may think… Continue reading
Howdy, pardners! Last we left our gang, they was handling getting bushwhacked by one of their own, and tried to, ahem, what’s this word? “Re-hay-bill-lie-tate” him. Dang big words. Anyway, they gots problems besides that, like them pesky Time Masters sending hunters from the future to hunt them down. Those Time Masters are as pesky as ticks on a horse’s ass, ain’t they?
Welcome back! A lot of things came together last episode, and not just Ray and Kendra. The big reveal was that Chronos was the believed dead Heatwave, which explains that obsessive need of the time traveling bounty hunter to kill his former teammates! But now that he’s been locked up on the Waverider, can they reform this maniac made worse by the Time Masters? And what about the team planning to head into 2147 to stop Vandal Savage’s takeover of Earth?
