Part four of the Crisis on Infinite Earths featured the death (again) of Oliver Queen and a huge battle with the Anti-Monitor. The world was saved, and it seemed like everything was wrapped up. So why is there a part five?
While in many ways it is the era of hero tv (and movies), 2019 carved a bloody swath through the shows that were around. This is my look back at the series that didn’t make it to 2020.
The first and final season of Swamp Thing reaches its unfortunate end. Not only was the show cancelled before it even finished the season, but the 13 episodes were cut down to 10. I’m still hoping they find a way to bring this back at some point, but it’s not sounding great.
The first, and sadly only, season of Swamp Thing is almost over. I’ve really been enjoying this, and it’s a damn shame it only made the one season. I’d certainly rank it above Titans, whose third season has been announced.
One of the things I really enjoy about DC Comics’ various video adaptations is their sense of history. They are, as a rule, very good about acknowledging what came before.
The darkness is gathering around Marias, and the new champion is still trying to figure out what he can do. Last time, there were some surprising revelations, and a few of the ones that had been presented as good guys seem a lot more questionable now.
There’s a strange darkness lurking in the swamps and woods outside Marias. It’s been hinted at by Swamp Thing and Madame Xanadu, and prepared for by the enigmatic Phantom Stranger, but we know very little about it.
I’ve been enjoying this series for a few different reasons, from what I find to be decent writing to some interesting twists on the main characters to adding a few I never thought I’d see in live action (Blue Devil, Madame Xanadu).
The first and only season of Swamp Thing is progressing well, and I’m getting increasingly intrigued by some of the subplots. The cast is good, the stories are making sense so far, and the effects are good.
The small swamp town of Marias can’t catch a break, and nothing is getting any better. The disease is still out of control, the CDC hasn’t pulled a miracle out of their bag of tricks, and there are strange things happening in the swamps.
