A disclaimer: I usually try to make my reviews fairly spoiler free. That won’t be the case with this one. Be warned.
I had my doubts when iZombie debuted a while back. This was another time I was very happy to be wrong. It’s a really entertaining show that changes their status quo that combines a different spin on zombies, a detective murder of the week, a close group of friends, and some really clever humor.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has been working more towards being an action comedy than the other shows, and they’re doing a good job of it. “The Curse of the Earth Totem” continues that trend with another mash up kind of episode. Last time was Abba and Groundhog Day. Now, it’s a sort of romantic comedy and pirate adventure.
The Punisher has done a great, and sometimes surprising, job of hitting some emotional depths. Given the general quality of the Netflix/Marvel series, that shouldn’t be that much of a shock, but then again, Punisher isn’t known for his deep range of feelings.
The Legends do a sot of dual homage to both 70’s supergroup Abba and the movie Groundhog Day in “Here I Go Again.”
Things continue to get complicated in what seems like it should be a simple quest for the Punisher in “Cold Steel.” For a man trying to avenge his family, he’s getting caught up in a lot of distractions, complications, and general chaos.
Continuing their penchant for complicated titles, Black Lightning continues with “And Then The Devil Brought the Plague: The Book of Green Light.” This new drug is doing a number on Freeland, and dominating a lot of the show’s plot, as well.
