One thing you have to say about Gotham; they’re not lacking in dark humor. The title “Stop Hitting Yourself” comes in to play early and gruesomely.
Deathstroke? Hey, I’m back too…
The episode “Deathstroke Returns” starts off from a different point of view. Specifically, we see Councilwoman Pollard, who only seems to exist to oppose whatever Mayor Queen is doing and generally be a pain in his ass, through a gunsight.
All the CW/DC Comics shows tend to adjust their introductory voice-overs as needed. It’s a nice little touch I enjoy. This week’s is done by Rip Hunter, and, to me, it worked a bit better than a lot of the others have this season.
Barry and Iris’ wedding is creeping closer, and on any tv show that means it’s about time for some kind of disastrous and/or humorous bachelor/bachelorette party. The title “Girls’ Night Out” should give you an idea about what they’re going to be focusing on, although we see a bit of both sides. It’s also an excuse for a guest star or two, and a new introductory voiceover.
This week, The Gifted’s beginning flashback is four years ago in Phoenix. John is working with Pulse, trying to raise funds for relief from the big 7/15 disaster that, among other things, cost Agent Turner his daughter.
Supergirl’s “Damage” episode starts off with a slightly new voiceover. After they get through that, the Girl of Steel and her sister do a nice job of taking care of an attempted escape from a prison transport bus.
My review of the Justice League movie is going to have a few spoilers below. Be warned. Proceed at your own risk. All that good stuff.
