It was nice to see Arrow rebound after last week's less than stellar episode. "Sara" contained some of the worst action sequences of the series so far, not to mention its fair share of stilted-sentimentality. The CW superhero show has never really nailed the emotional moments but stunning action set-pieces almost always outweigh the heavy-handed drama. Case in point, “Corto Maltese.”
If you’ve been wondering what to call what DC Comics is doing with its slew of TV and movie characters, we have an answer for you. DC President Geoff Johns spoke out on Thursday to explain how The Flash and Arrow can exist on the small screen and still exist in a totally separate world on the big screen.
If all good things must come to an end, I’m sad it only took Supernatural three episodes to conclude its best storyline in quite some time. “Soul Survivor” brought the Deanmon arc to a satisfying and abrupt conclusion.
Arrow has lined up a diverse group of villains for its third season. Oliver Queen will soon be drawn into conflict with comic book bad guys like Digger Harkness, Cupid, his old nemesis Malcolm Merlyn and League of Assassins leader Ra’s al Ghul. However, Oliver may soon face his toughest challenge yet.
While the The CW hopes to continue spinning off the success of Arrow, DC rolled out their plans for a concurrently expanding cinematic universe. The development will obviously have an effect on the small-screen superheroes but to what extent remains unclear. And here we thought the new addition on last week's episode was big news, not to mention the bombshell the series dropped. Can any of the easter eggs in “Sara” possibly put the spotlight back on DC's TV shows?
Here’s a nice surprising reprieve from all the recent news about well-received movies getting tweaked to become TV projects: a well-received movie is getting tweaked to become a TV project. It's The Illusionist.
Regardless of how you felt about Deanmon’s debut last week, there’s no arguing after “Reichenbach” that Jensen Ackles is nailing this demonic side of Dean. Supernatural needed a shakeup headed into its tenth season and the writers have struck gold by turning the eldest Winchester into a black-eyed monster.
The CW doesn't offer a flood of new original series each season. In fact, the network only ordered a handful of new scripted series to join their returning shows for the 2014-2015 season, and only two of them debuted this fall.
Jamie Bamber has had plenty of TV gigs over the past several years, but none have stuck for as long or have been as culturally relevant as Battlestar Galactica. Syfy’s space-oriented drama made Bamber a household name, and now the actor should be hoping that his latest role will bring him steady work for some time to come.
Hours after it was revealed that Victor Garber will play Doctor Martin Stein on The Flash, another casting has been announced, but this time for a notable member of the Scarlet Speedster’s rogues gallery.
The Arrow third season premiere was titled "The Calm" but we might have caught a bit of 'the storm' by episode's end. Or middle. Actually, where was the calm? Things were kind of stormy right from the opening chase. To be fair, it was relatively calm before the date blowing (up) bomb but after that, it was bombshell after bombshell. A baby was born, a 'bird' died and, as usual, a lot of references to the DCU were made. It's nice to have Arrow back.
Now that Arrow officially managed to kick off its third season with a shocking introductory episode, and The Flash managed to crush in the ratings against many of its opponents on Tuesday night, the CW has begun to think about expanding its comic book world. No, we’re not kidding. Warner Bros. TV, DC Entertainment and The CW are in talks to bring a third DC Comics character to the network.
Wait a second. Did that just happen? Is this real life? Because wow. Just... And it's at this point that we drop the obvious spoiler warning. If you haven't seen tonight's Season 3 premiere of Arrow ("The Calm") stop reading now! We're about to go into specifics about that unexpected moment...
To say that last night’s premiere of The Flash was successful is an understatement. The pilot performed extremely well, earning many positive reviews and was watched by 4.5 million total viewers. The CW then decided to take a step further and include this trailer for upcoming episodes after the pilot finished.
Supernatural kicked off its tenth season with a six-week time jump and an intimate story that moved last season’s cliffhanger forward in a compelling way while failing to launch any big storylines. This was new territory for a show that religiously uses premieres to show the audience a glimpse of where they’re going in the episodes to come. What we found in “Black” was our favorite characters in vastly different places than where we left them.
