As a guy who grew up with comics and remembers picking up Supergirl’s first ever comics appearance off of one of those ‘Hey, Kids! Comics!’ racks that used to be in grocery stores across the continent, I have to say that the pilot for Supergirl (Monday, 8:30/7:30C then weekly at 8/9C)) was something I was definitely looking forward to seeing.
Is it great? No, not quite. But it is very, very good.
The Flash: The Complete First Season is a welcome addition to the library of TV and movie superhero adventures. The (not surprisingly) fast-paced series was well received by critics, fanboys/girls and the general audience with equal enthusiasm.
The DVD/Blu-Ray sets provide a lovely package combining the show’s first 22 episodes and over three hours of special features.
Also, if you’re in New York this weekend, stop by Times Square (Broadway between 46th & 47th Streets) to discover Blindspot! Visit the temporary tattoo bar, become a “body of clues” with a fun photo opp, and have the chance to see yourself on NBC’s Times Square digital billboard!
Blindspot premiers Monday, Sept 21 at 10/9c on NBC
Shortly after the Supergirl pilot was leaked, CBS uploaded its new shows for fall onto the network’s press website where I took a guilt-free look (as a guy who grew up with comics and remembers picking up Supergirl’s first ever comics appearance off of one of those ‘Hey, Kids! Comics!’ racks that used to be in grocery stores across the continent, the temptation to seek out the leaked pilot was almost unbearable).
Things aren’t looking good for Dr. Harrison Wells – Barry and Joe have shared their belief that he’s the Reverse-Flash and Cisco has been having flashes from the alternate timeline in which Wells killed him.
As the tension mounts proving Wells’ nefariousness comes closer – and with the appearance of Gorilla Grodd in the offing – The CW has released a new video in support of The Flash’s (Tuesdays, 8/7C) final three season two episodes. Check it out after the jump.
During heir panels at the annual paean to quality television that is PaleyFest, the executive producers of Arrow and The Flash teased their audiences with a couple of dazzling sizzle reels to give them a taste of the rest of those shows’ current seasons.
Those reels were pirated and posted to YouTube but, from all accounts, were pretty fuzzy and more than a little askew. As the way of Greg Berlanti & Co., realizing that their sizzle reels had gone public, they decided to post the actual reels so that everyone could see what all the fuss was about.
Follow the jump to check out the PaleyFest sizzle reels for Arrow and The Flash (which return this week on The CW).
Tonight’s episode of The Flash (The CW, 8/7C) finds Barry Allen confronting the man who killed his mother. That’s right, the creators of the series are springing this gut-wrenching moment on The Flash’s fall finale in The Man In The Yellow Suit. and this is the Christmas ep, folks!
For a peek behind the scenes of this extra-length episode (two minutes – set your DVRs!), follow the jump.
It’s the crossover all superhero TV fans have been waiting for – The Arrow vs. The Flash. Let’s just say that the conversation/debate on who would win – when they’re not teaming up to stop a metahuman bad guy – is part of the fun.
Flash vs. Arrow, Part1 airs on The Flash on Tuesday, December 2 (The CW, 8/7C). Check out the full trailer after the jump.
In most of the promotional pieces for ABC’s No Ordinary Family [Tuesdays, 8/7C], the series has been called a live-action The Incredibles, but it far more closely resembles the earliest issues of The Fantastic Four – before the group started wearing costumes. No matter what might happen as a result of their new-found powers, they still have all the joys and trials of regular life to deal with. That’s what makes the show unique – and really, really good.
