Oh, there you are! The midwinter break has come to a close and we are seeing the regular comic television return. The Gifted weathered the winter weather better than others, even if the Bureau42 reviews did not. That Reviewer really needs to stop messing with time lines and just post the reviews already.

The Gifted has the Mutant Underground reorganize, and the Riverdale teens deal with Veronica’s father’s takeover.

The first question is required, but all others are optional, so you can submit several at a time.

Remember when I typed up the review for last weeks episode, my system froze, deleting it, and everyone was left in crippling melancholy for a week? Me neither, since the review is right there, dated last week, and clearly not having been posted anachronistically. It’s possible that I have some memory damage, there is an X shaped tattoo here.
There is a review for this week’s episode, where our four groups begin to shift down to two and the past helps give the present some More…

Okay, I hate to post an entry promoting a commercial, especially a Wal-Mart commercial, but the company dropped an ad for their Grocery Pickup Service during the Golden Globe Awards, which features a number of classic genre cars, and a handful of the related characters. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a good deal of fun.
