Supergirl and Gotham Blu-ray Release Dates Announced

I love me some Gotham. It’s a messy show that’s hard to defend, but that’s precisely why I like it. Can people stop whining about the fact that Batman isn’t in it and accept that this is an elseworld’s version of Gotham and has nothing to do with “canon?” Whatever “canon” even means these days.

I wasn’t as enamored with this season of Supergirl as I was last year. After a strong start, I thought this years theme of literal “alienation,” got a bit tired. However I still love the cast and its upbeat tone is a refreshing change from all the other overly serious Superhero shows.  Gotham: The Complete Third Season arrives on Blu-ray & DVD starting August 29, 2017 and Supergirl: The Complete Second Season comes to Blu-ray & DVD on August 22, 2017. Where are my 4K TV Season releases? Gah. That’s right, I’m never satisfied.
