What up people! The show that vexes me to no end, The 100 returns to The CW for its 5th outing this week and I have to say the first episode of season 5 made me remember why I used to adore this show. Unfortunately, after the greatness that is episode 1, episode 2 brought me crashing down to earth (see what I did?) and reminded me why the show drives me NUTS. I won’t bore you with the Tedious Plot Summary (TPS) because if you are watching S5, you know the characters already. This review is based on the first 4 episodes and contains minor spoilers. The 100 returns to The CW Network, Tuesday, April 24th.
The CW goes into its expanded 2018-19 (adding a sixth night) season with 10 early renewals, including the network’s longest running series, Supernatural, all of its DCTV titles, critical darlings Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin, the dark Archie series Riverdale, and rookie primetime soap, Dynasty.
Thanks to shows like The X-Factor, America’s Got Talent and now CW’s Masters of Illusion which airs Friday nights on the CW Network, magic has made a big come back. One of these master magicians, Nathan Burton recently appeared on The CW Network’s Masters of Illusion. I had a chance to have an interesting email interview with Nathan. Masters of Illusion airs Friday nights on The CW.
The first half of the trailer for season six of Arrow recaps the events of season five’s finale, but when it kicks into gear with its look at season six, it really kicks into gear.
Highlights include scenes between Oliver and William, the reappearance of Slade Wilson, and the sing-off between Black Canary and Black Siren.

Earlier today, The CW presented a trailer featuring its superhero line of shows – with special attention paid to new guy on the block, Black Lightning.
This fall, The CW debuts a reboot of a classic primetime soap (Dynasty) and a military drama (Valor). Then, for mid-season, the network has a superhero series from (surprise!) Greg Berlanti (Black Lightning) and a slightly sudsy comedy drama (Life Sentence).
I have a few thoughts …
The CW has made trailers for its four new shows (two in the fall; two at midseason) available and they all look… interesting (at the very least).
The CW has made some interesting moves with its 2017-18 Fall Schedule – not the least of which is Supernatural’s eighth timeslot change.
The Winchester brothers will move one hour from its Thursday timeslot, which will now be filled by Arrow (moving from Wednesday nights in its first ever timeslot change).
