Gotham Knights: Pilot

I liked this a lot more than I thought I would. I have a lot of questions about characters either referred to in passing or not named at all, but I hope we’ll get there.

Naomi: Pilot

Now, they’re going in a different direction, with a show starring Naomi. Naomi is different from the other headliners in many ways. She’s a Black female, she’s not well known outside comics (or even inside them), and she’s a recent creation, first appearing in 2019.

Loki: Glorious Purpose

Disney+ has been producing some great additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. WandaVision was surreally amazing, and The Falcon and The Winter Solider was a great buddy cop/adventure story with some events that should change the future of the MCU. Now Loki gets his turn in a six part series explaining what happened to the God of Mischief after he escaped during the Avengers’ hijinks in time as seen in Endgame.

M.O.D.O.K.- If This Be M.O.D.O.K.

I have a very uneven relationship with superhero parodies. I’m a big hero fan, and a lot of them really fall flat with me, taking obvious routes to making stupid jokes that I’ve heard countless times before. However, I have a great deal of faith in Patton Oswalt.

Superman and Lois: Pilot

Superman and Lois absolutely respects their source material, and does a great job giving a few changes that work in the modern era without making everything dark, edgy, and mean, or ridiculously saccharine sweet. It manages to be about family and get the tone right for the dynamics, and still have plenty of Super-action.

WandaVision: Episode 1

The superhero genre is so wide you can tell almost any kind of story in it, and they take full advantage of that here. The various hints at more going on promise some interesting developments down the road.

Batwoman: Pilot

      The CW has been doing a good to great job of adapting the DC Universe to live action, depending on the show and/or episode. The majority of the shows are in a shared universe, like the Marvel/Netflix ones were, and they’ve been doing a good job of building a comprehensive world.

Doom Patrol: Pilot

    In 1963, a team dubbed “The World’s Strangest Superheroes” made their debut. While the description of a team of people with freakish powers, protecting a world that fears them, led by a brilliant man in a wheelchair might sound familiar, the Doom Patrol actually appeared a few months before Marvel’s X-Men.
