The Flash and Supergirl.

Supergirl + The Flash crossover Worlds Finest Review

Supergirl + The Flash crossover Worlds Finest Review After watching Batman v Superman during the weekend the DC Universe is not done yet with tie-ins. Last evening Supergirl teamed up with The Flash on CBS. The result was an episode that made sense and was great fun, though it could not entirely hide the Supergirl silliness. A franchise crossover had been mulled for some time. At least two of Supergirl’s developers previously created Arrow and The Flash, both on The CW. I watch all three shows intermittently,...

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. DC Extended Universe has finally arrived!

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice The title may be a bit misleading. Officially the DC Extended Universe started in 2013 with Man of Steel. The DC Extended Universe is meant to be to the DC Comics what Marvel’s Cinematic Universe is to, well, Marvel Comics. So far things have gotten off to a rocky start. Man of Steel received only mixed reviews, certainly not the critical acclaim that Iron Man brought to Marvel. At the same time DC Comics...

Joan watches Everyone take clothes off. Elementary S4Ep17

Elementary S4Ep17 You’ve Got Me, Who’s Got You? Review

Elementary S4Ep17 You’ve Got Me, Who’s Got You? Review After a hiatus I thought it good again to review an episode of Elementary. This week the show has been moved to its new time-slot on Sunday evening. The reason given is that it will give a better lead into Sunday drama’s. We shall see. In You’ve Got Me, Who’s Got You? we finally see more development on Sherlock’s investigation into his father, though it is the killer-of-the-week story that makes up...

Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg in Indiana Jones 5

Indiana Jones 5 – Can Harrison Ford truly return?

Indiana Jones 5 A few days ago Disney made the bombshell announcement that a new Indiana Jones movie would released in 2019. The movie, a sequel to the original trilogy and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, will again be directed by Steven Spielberg and will also feature Harrison Ford in the titular role. The first response to the news was mostly skeptical. Harrison Ford is 73 right now and will either be 76 or 77 when the movie is released. As the...

Colony S1Ep9 Zero Day Review. Will and Beau look at LA

Colony S1Ep9 Zero Day Review

Colony S1Ep9 Zero Day Review For the last few weeks I have been binging on Colony, the new Sci-fi mystery show on USA Network starring Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies. Colony is created by Carlton Cuse, who was also joint showrunner with David Lindelof for Lost. Recently he has also developed Bates Motel and is working on Jack Ryan, a series based on the character from the Tom Clancy novels. So, Colony is hardly lacking in quality, but somehow it took me more than...

Anna Torv to star in Mindhunter with David Fincher and Charlize Theron

Anna Torv to star in Netflix series Mindhunter produced by David Fincher

Mindhunter Ever since the end of Fringe in 2013 it has been quiet for Australian actress Anna Torv. She has starred in a few Australian productions but that’s it. A canceled TV show can have consequences but with her gravitas I hoped she would quickly star in another role. Now after almost 3 years she may get her break. Anna Torv is set to star in Mindhunter, a series produced by David Fincher and Charlize Theron for Netflix. Torv will...

Luvia Petersen on the set of Moonshot

Moonshot Preview: Sci-Fi short with Luvia Petersen

Moonshot Preview Those who feel the pain of the cancellation of Continuum will be eager to know one of its principal casts, Luvia Petersen, is set to act in two productions this year. One of the those of the short film Moonshot by director Matthew Lucas. The short film is described as a sci-fi retro movie, a movie set in a near future as it might have been imagined in the 1980’s. The title card certainly betrays its inspiration from the videogame Far Cry...

Closing the Zero matter rift. Agent Carter S2Ep10 Hollywood Ending Review.

Agent Carter S2Ep10 Hollywood Ending Review

Agent Carter S2Ep10 Hollywood Ending Review With Agents of SHIELD on its mid-season hiatus fans of Marvel have instead been shown Agent Carter. After a successful first season in which the show proofed it could be better than even SHIELD expectations were high for its new season. It is difficult to say whether Agent Carter has succeeded. In many ways the story, now set in L.A., was even darker than its first. Yet. the drama was also too often interrupted...

Arriving at Hilltop. The Walking Dead S6Ep11 Knots Untie - a short opinion

The Walking Dead S6Ep11 Knots Untie – a short opinion

The Walking Dead S6Ep11 Knots Untie – a short opinion This weeks episode of The Walking Dead sets the scene for the final confrontation with Negan, a character whose introduction fans dreaded because of whom he kills in the comics. Looking beyond Negan is the confrontation with The Whisperer’s, something for season 7 I guess. Sadly, I am starting to feel fatigued by the series. This week’s episode may have again pivoted the series, now towards the Hilltop settlement and its leader Gregory,...
