Sorry Batwoman. Stargirl Is As The New Bright Spot in The Arrowverse

Expand

 

I never knew anything of Stargirl before the series. I saw the costume and the staff and never really looked at the character twice. That being said, this show seems to be better than it should be. After the disappointment with Batwoman, a show I was so psyched for (being a huge fan of the initial comic book run), I didn’t expect there to be anything else fresh and exciting in the Arrowverse. But Stargirl seems to capture the fun and excitement of The Flash’s first 2 seasons. I heard so much hype for this show. It seems the hype was real.


DC’s Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new drama reimagines DC’s Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series.

Westworld Ends Its 3rd Season With An Epic Finale.. And A Renewal for Season 4

Expand

A lot folks found fault with the first 2 seasons of Westworld. There were a lot of complaints that the concepts built around time jumps made the show way too ‘heady’ for the average viewer. So season 3 offered a soft rebuilt in story and tone, bringing the series off the island and into the near-futuristic world of humans. It was still a continuation of the over-arching story, but told with a singular narrative that was more aligned with what people expect. With a tight 8 episode run on the season, I think Westworld is breathing new life into the science fiction drama, yet keeping their current phrasing of social commentary. I can’t wait for season 4.. which it has been renewed for.

If you’re looking for a zombie show with realistic and more over-the-top, bat-shit crazy, Kellita Smith’s Z Nation might fit the bill. It’s 5 seasons of craziness that’s the total opposite of The Walking Dead.
