With Arrow’s departure, his Devestated Comrades mostly managed to pick up the pieces, except for a few who took the week off for funeral leave. Black Lightning and his kids join the enemies side, while The Flash remembers he’s married and helps his wife while he mourns. The Legends take off for 1947 to be gangsta. The other comic spawned show (Riverdale) tells us a very gender specific tale of honor. In space, The Doctor returns to Earth, but surprisingly it’s in India, not London. I guess The Doctor expects the Midwives to handle any calls without help. It sounds easy enough, since they mostly expect to go see a movie. This leaves Picard to go off into space with his former crew. (Not that one, the crew after that one.)

I want to extend a huge “thank you” to Alex. Normally we share the duties of putting this column together, but my life has been insane in January, and Alex stepped up and has been doing the entire thing for the past several weeks.
We have a review of “Maps and Legends,” which gets Picard one step closer to space.
Given the story-arc heavy nature of this series, we will be posting discussions in future weeks, but likely only a few true reviews that will consider sections of the season.
CBS AllAccess is making the first episode of Star Trek: Picard free for a limited time on YouTube.
If you’re curious about the show before dropping another subscription fee, check it out. (Embedding is disabled for this video, so you have to watch it on YouTube.com).
ETA: Apparently this is for US folks only.
It’s a cold and bleak January, so Edgar Allan Poe seemed a fitting topic this week. Enjoy!
