I’m a little late to this week’s review—and a little surprised by the intensity of the negative response it has received in some quarters. The episode has an extended PSA-leaning epilogue that feels decidedly out of place, and it’s more than a little confusing, but it’s also one of the more interesting episodes of this season.
The latest DC super-movie opened, a sequel to Suicide Squad that also functions as an origin for Birds of Prey. It under-performed at the box office on its first weekend and played to mixed reviews.
This review may be more mixed than many.
This week features many lovely episodes, as it encompasses 💕Valentines Day💗! Life is a dream for The Doctor, while the Midwives deal with outdated (even then) birthing practices. Here my Domestic Continent, The Flash has to deal with an old enemy, but not Cupid for some reason, while the Legends end up in an 80s slasher flick, and Black Lightning chases down his Valentine. The Good Doctor deals with the horrible specter of social media, and the Riverdale “teens” come to terms with the fact that this is season four and they can’t really pretend to be in highschool after this season. Jean Luc Picard gets directed by Number One (Johnathan Frakes, not his dog.)

This one’s for the ladies. And anyone else who loves comics. With Birds of Prey coming out this week, it seemed like a good time to take a look at women on and off the page of comic books.
