Superman and Lois: Last Son of Krypton

I’ve been a fan of superheroes my entire life, although I’ve never had a big interest in Superman himself, which is a bit ironic considering he’s the character that started the entire industry. I did like the Christopher Reeve movies, and the DC Animated Universe cartoon was decent. The ever-expanding Arrowverse finally added a Superman to their roster, and it was the best version of the character I’d seen in many years, much better than the darker version that popped up in the recent movies and the “New 52” reboot. I was interested when they announced the new “Superman and Lois” show and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying it through the first season. It’s too bad we’ve reached the end of a great season, but at least we know there will be a season two, and hopefully some appearances throughout the Arrowverse to look forward to. As this is a season finale, there may be some spoilers below.

Superman and Lois: The Eradicator

The first season of Superman and Lois has been an unqualified success. The show was renewed very early, and has gotten rave reviews from fans and critics (me among them). Even people who say they’ve never really liked Superman have been won over by the top-notch acting, writing, and characterizations.

Superman and Lois: Fail Safe

I’ve been raving about Superman and Lois since it debuted, and I’m likely going to continue doing so. The show consistently amazes me, doing some very different things in the superhero genre, but still staying true to who both the main characters are.

Flash: Heart of the Matter, Part 2

Season seven of The Flash reaches its end amid the chaos of the Godspeed war. We get a resolution to that, several allies working together, an old enemy coming back, and a nice little family scene at the end. To my surprise, there was no big cliffhanger, which the CW usually does on their season finales.

Legends of Tomorrow: Bad Blood

One of the problems with Legends of Tomorrow (aside from the title no longer making any sense at all) is the size of the cast. They have too many players, and even when they cut someone (I still miss Ray), they tend to fill their slot almost immediately.

Legends of Tomorrow: This Is Gus

The Legends of Tomorrow have been going through more changes than usual lately. Between people coming and going, characters going through assorted changes, and shifting goals for the season, the status quo has been bending a lot. They do more of that, but also go to great lengths to undo at least one change in “This is Gus.”
