Arrow DCU Tie-Ins And Easter Eggs: Season 2, Episode 3 - Broken Dolls
While "Broken Dolls" saw Oliver Queen continue his corpse-less quest to save Starling City, this week's episode of Arrow was also overflowing with references to the DC Comics universe. The second season of The CW's comic book series has been busy expanding the world by writing nods into every installment - from the subtle mention of Flash in "City of Heroes" to the appearance of both Sebastian Blood and Bronze Tiger in "Identity" - and last night didn't disappoint.
Canceled Or Renewed: 2013-2014 Network TV Scorecard
At this point in the fall, it starts to get tricky trying to keep track of what shows have been renewed and which ones have been canceled, and which ones are still undecided. To simplify things, we have a list of all of the shows airing on the five major networks — ABC, CBS, CW, FOX and NBC — in the 2013-2014 season, and we’ll be doing our best to keep it updated as information rolls in on the status of this seasons shows.
Originals Episode 5 Preview: Sinners And Saints Teases Davina's Past
Over the past few episodes, Klaus’ plan to re-take over New Orleans seemed to be chugging along. Then Davina stepped in, however, and Elijah was forced to remain inside his coffin. This week, things seemed to be looking up as Davina woke Elijah and toyed with him, while Klaus worked some tricks to get the little witchy woman on his side. The intrigue definitely isn’t over yet, though
Supernatural Watch: Season 9, Episode 3 - I'm No Angel
The ninth season of Supernatural returned to the show’s roots in “I’m No Angel.” With Castiel on the run, Sam and Dean set off on a cross-country road trip to rescue their friend before the angels (or reapers) found him. I was reminded of the early seasons when the brothers lived on the open road and traveled from one city to another saving people and hunting things – the family business. The show sure has changed since those words were uttered.
Arrow DCU Tie-Ins And Easter Eggs: Season 2, Episode 2 - Identity
While there wasn't a nod as exciting as "City of Heroes'" dropping news of Central City's particle accelerator being prepped, the second episode of Arrow's second season still had several DC Comics references as well as feature a few new comic book based characters. Oh, and "Identity" was also a great episode of action-adventure television, not simply relying on all these references for a 'cool' recognition factor but effectively working them into the narrative. They all matter.
Reign Review: Castles, Costumes And Soapy Teen Drama
On some level, I want to say that The CW's Reign is in the vein of A Knight's Tale, in that it's sort of period-piece light, with its modern music and updated -- or at the very least, modified -- costumes. But what Reign lacks that made A Knight's Tale work is humor. The CW's new series takes a similar approach to any other young adult drama on the network, which is fine for that audience, but combined with its loose approach to historical accuracy, it's really hard for me to take this show as seriously as it takes itself.
Supernatural Watch: Season 9, Episode 2 - Devil May Care
The second episode of any given season has one primary job: don’t murder the premiere’s momentum. Keep things moving. Elevate our curiosity about what’s going to happen this season. “Devil May Care” accomplished that goal in a way that was both exciting and mundane. The setup of the episode was routine – fighting demons, killing demons, returning to the bunker with fried chicken – but everything that surrounded it has me hopeful for the best season of Supernatural yet.
The Originals Episode 4 Preview: Girl In New Orleans Teases A Hard Fight
The fourth episode of The Originals is set to hit the CW next week, and it seems that Klaus is finally ready to exact his revenge on former prodigy Marcel in an attempt to take back New Orleans. When we last left off, the feisty Davina still had her talons around Elijah, who is still stuck in a box. Klaus is ready to exact his revenge and maybe save his brother in the process, but as he notes in the new preview for next week’s episode, “Sadly, I’ve run out of time to play nice.”
Arrow Season 2: A Look Back And A Look Ahead
At the end of Arrow's first season, the 'Hood' had all but failed his city. The vigilante couldn't stop 'the undertaking' that left his home in ruins and Starling City is in need of a hero more than ever. Maybe a city full. And before The CW super-series returns with a "City of Heroes" to start Season 2, now is a good time to take a look back at the events of last year as well as discuss the 'powerful' additions for the new season.
The Originals Review: Vampire Diaries Spin-off Is Set Up For Fans And Newbies Alike
Can I watch The Originals if I don't watch The Vampire Diaries? This is the question I asked myself as I sat down to watch the pilot episode of The Originals. So if you're looking for a review of the vampire spinoff series from a die-hard TVD fan, I apologize but you'll have to search elsewhere. My knowledge of The Vampire Diaries is limited to vague memories of the first few episodes of the series.
Heroes' Tim Kring Producing Teen Drama Exp For The CW
It looks like The CW is determined to get a Tim Kring series on their network. Last month we learned that the Heroes creator was developing a drama for the CW based on the upcoming book Dorothy Must Die and today comes word that Kring's production company Tim Kring Imperative and Warner Bros. TV are teaming up for another project being put into development for the network, and this one sounds a bit closer to Heroes than the Oz-set drama.
Arrow Casts Glee's Grant Gustin To Play Flash
It looks like Grant Gustin will be Warbling his way back to The CW. The Glee actor has landed a pretty significant role in the upcoming second season of Arrow. He's reportedly set to recur as Flash in Arrow, and if all goes well with the episodes, he could end up going on to star in the potential spinoff series at the network.
Tim Kring Developing Wizard Of Oz Drama Dorothy Must Die For The CW
Hollywood loves a good anniversary, so it's no surprise that there are a number of Wizard of Oz-themed projects in the works, what with the approaching 75th anniversary of the feature adaptation of L. Frank Baum's novel. That includes a return to theaters for the film (in IMAX 3D) next month, and a number of TV projects, including the latest to go into development, which is based on an upcoming young adult novel called Dorothy Must Die
