CW’s Crisis On Earth-X Crossover Is Everything Right About Live Action Comic Book TV Shows

DC and Warner Brothers may be faltering on their Cinematic Universe, but their TV universe is killing it. Full disclosure, I’m a huge Marvel head. And I love the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I love the Marvel TV and streaming shows also. But if I there’s a prototype for what comic book shows should be, it’d have to say The CW has it locked. Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow have found away to perfect the ‘fun’ factor that’s missing from the Marvel TV shows. Sure they’re campy… even corny at times. But that’s what comic books are suppose to be. The latest mega crossover, Crisis on Earth-X witch crosses through all four shows over two nights, is everything you’d expect in a comic book event. And these shows handle it with the same ‘over the top’ action as if it were in a 9-grid panel. Kudos, DC and CW.

 

Geostorm Is Just As Incredibly Insane As It Sounds.. And I Loved It.

Geostorm Is Just As Incredibly Insane As It Sounds.. And I Loved It.

I have a thing for stupid natural disaster movies. It’s one of my guilty pleasures. 2012, The Core, San Andreas, The Day After Tomorrow.. I love them all. And along comes Gerard Butler and the ridiculously named Geostorm. Now we’re dealing with manmade weather control technology gone bad. Your typical wackiness ensues. A desert turns to ice, a tsunami floods a city.. all the classics. Suddenly, life is good again. LOL.

I Need To Catch Up On Travelers

I Need To Catch Up On Travelers

I stumbled on Travelers during my endless search for quality sci-fi shows. It’s usually hit or miss… with a lot more on the ‘miss’ side. So when I saw the pilot episode with not knowledge of what it was, it blew me away. A tale of time travelers who can only come back by taking over other bodies at the time of their death is awesome. Season 2 has been released on Netflix, but I’m going back to rewatch season 1 just for the kick of it.

The Annual DC/CW Crossover Event Is Upon Us with <strong>Crisis On Earth-X</strong>

Say what you will about the deficiencies of DC’s Cinematic Universe. All you need to do to get some great DC live-action comic book fun is turn on the CW to check out Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Last year the shows kicked off the annual crossover event with an alien invasion. This year the television equivelant of The Justice League will be hopping dimensions to Earth-X where The Nazi’s conquered the world. Not only that, but we get to see the heroes reimagined as Nazi Storm Troopers. #Awesome.

Marvel’s The Punisher Blew Me Away

Marvel’s The Punisher Blew Me Away

When I heard that Netflix was developing a solo series for The Punisher after he accolades for the character in the second season of Daredevil, I was excited and concerned at the same time. It felt like they were rushing production, similar to Iron Fist. When companies do this to cash in on the popularity, it usually comes with a lackluster story. The Punisher has his issues, but overall it’s fantastic.

A Mind-Bending Police Thriller Told In Reverse. Rellik Is British TV At Its Best

Even though I enjoyed 2000’s Memento, I really wasn’t hat much of a fan of the whole ‘told in reverse’ narrativeSo when I started watching the first episode of the new BBC One crime thriller Rellik, I wasn’t planning on making through the entire episode. But there’s just something about the grittiness of Richard Dormer (Game of Thrones, Fortitude) and the intense, sexappeal of Jodi Balfour (Quarry, Bomb Girls). Throw in the excellent Paterson Joseph (Timeless, Peep Show) as a pervy Psychiatrist and you got one hell of a cast carrying out a pretty original story.
