The Originals Episode 10 Preview: The Rise Of Davina Will Happen After Winter Hiatus
According to the latest preview for Episode 10, otherwise known as “The Casket Girls,” The Originals won’t pop back onto the schedule until mid-January. That’s some bad news for fans, but on the bright side, this past episode was fairly explosive, leaving us with plenty to think about.
Supernatural Watch: Season 9, Episode 9 - Holy Terror
It takes a special kind of show to genuinely shock its audience after nine seasons. Supernatural proved it was that kind of show with its midseason finale “Holy Terror” and a death that I doubt anyone saw coming. I had a hunch as to whose name was on Metatron’s card but I thought Dean would come to the rescue like he always does. It just wasn’t meant to be this time. Dean arrived too late and Kevin paid the price as Gadreel turned out his lights.
The Originals Episode 9 Preview: Reigning Pain In New Orleans
While I thought the war in The Originals would likely take us through Season 1, the writers seem to have other ideas in the works. At least, that’s how it looks in the preview for next week’s episode 9, “Reigning Pain in New Orleans.”
Supernatural Watch: Season 9, Episode 8 - Rock And A Hard Place
Supernatural rebounded this week with a funny episode that featured the return of a fan favorite: Sheriff Jodie Mills. With so few strong female allies left for Sam and Dean, I was relieved that Jodie survived the episode in spite of being chained to a slaughtering table. The villain’s identity was no shocker but the twist that she was the Roman goddess Vesta and not a dragon was fun. This show has been hit-or-miss when it dips into Greek and Roman mythology.
Arrow DCU Tie-Ins And Easter Eggs: Season 2, Episode 7 - State v. Queen PLUS The Scientist's Flash-y Preview
After the mission to Moscow, Arrow is back in Starling City for "State v. Queen" to face off against some new characters from the DCU as well as returning favorites. That seems to be a successful formula for the show with "Keep Your Enemies Closer" introducing Amanda Waller as well as bringing 'Deadshot' back for the exciting tangent that sent the 'Green Team' overseas. This week, Oliver's familiar foe is none other than Seth Gabel's Count Vertigo.
Arrow Adds An al Ghul And Dons A Domino Mask
Those who have been paying attention to the name-drops on Arrow know that it was only a matter of time before one or more of the al Ghuls, a family intimately and often involved in fellow DC superhero Bruce Wayne/Batman’s life, showed up in Starling City. Well, The CW’s superhero series has recently cast an al Ghul. Not Ra’s. Nope, not Talia either. Yes, there are more.
Supernatural Watch: Season 9, Episode 7 - Bad Boys
Let’s go ahead and get it out there: this episode was lackluster. If not for the peek into Dean’s time at Sonny’s House for Boys, “Bad Boys” would have been one of the most forgettable episodes ever. Thankfully the flashbacks were the focus of this episode and they were really strong. Of the things that Supernatural does well, expanding the history of the Winchester clan is near the top of the list (Samuel Campbell notwithstanding).
Arrow Offers First Look At The Flash, Which Will Now Get A Stand-Alone Pilot
This news comes after network higher-ups have seen Arrow’s eighth and ninth episodes, where Allen’s Central City assistant police forensic investigator is first introduced. According to >Deadline, the highly positive reactions have led them to believe the character is worth more focus, and they’re willing to finance the loftier budget that pilots usually call for.
Arrow DCU Tie-Ins And Easter Eggs: Season 2, Episode 6 - Keep Your Enemies Closer
There’s barely been enough time to properly process the major name-drops during last week’s run in with the ”League of Assassins” with the mysterious mercenaries mentioning both Ra’s al Ghul and his daughter Talia in the attempt to capture the Canary. And yet, "Keep Your Enemies Closer" possibly bested the previous episode of Arrow when it comes to DCU easter eggs. Oh, it was also another damn solid installment of The CW superhero series.
Supernatural Watch: Season 9, Episode 6 - Heaven Can't Wait
After two weeks of filler episodes, Supernatural got back to business with its juicy fallen angel storyline by showing Castiel working at a gas station. While that’s not a direction I envisioned Castiel’s human arc going this season, there was a lot to like about “Heaven Can’t Wait.” There were also some frustrating elements, which we’ll get to in a bit. Let’s start with the best part of this week’s episode: Castiel is back!
The Originals, Reign And The Tomorrow People Picked Up For Full First Seasons
It looks like CW’s aiming to stay the course with their new dramas. The network announced today that they’ve given full season orders for all three freshmen drama series The Originals, The Tomorrow People and Reign. These are three of five new series CW is introducing this season, with two more lined up to join the network during Midseason.
Veronica Mars' Rob Thomas Developing DC's iZombie For CW
Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas knows a thing or two about smart, witty detectives, but what does he know about zombies? We may find out, as Thomas is reportedly reuniting with VM executive producer Diane Ruggiero for an adaptation of DC’s iZombie. And we can add this to the list of DC properties CW is looking to develop (see also Hourman, Flash, and of course, the currently airing Arrow).
Arrow DCU Tie-Ins And Easter Eggs: Season 2, Episode 5 - League Of Assassins
Amidst a flurry of small-screen superhero news, from The CW adding Hourman to their roster to Marvel and Netflix announcing their epic partnership, Arrow continues to provide the model for a successful comic-book inspired series. Sorry, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. By focusing on Black Canary, "League of Assassins" continued to populate the series with popular DC characters including a reference to two of Batman's biggest (big-screen) foes.
Supernatural Watch: Season 9, Episode 5 - Dog Dean Afternoon
This week’s episode of Supernatural started with a “Then” montage of some of the funniest episodes in series history. The choice was deliberate, as “Dog Dean Afternoon” had the premise of an all-time classic: Dean drifts with a dog (to borrow a term from Pacific Rim) in order to solve a crime. Unbeknownst to Dean, becoming Doctor Dolittle also means taking on the characteristics of a dog. That means playing fetch, scratching behind the ears, barking at the mailman, and even sniffing butts!
DC Comic's Hourman May Be Next Hero at The CW
The CW can’t seem to stay away from its recent comic book-centric boon, and since it’s done well for them, why stop with just Arrow? That’s why the network has decided to potentially expand its DC Comics horizon with Hourman, a drama series based on the characters of the same name. Seems that geekery is the name of the game — and a good one at that — and tapping into the obsessive adoration found in many a teen girl and nerd boy has proven to be a solid business plan for the network.
