The latest round of voting takes place here.
Irish/Canadian author Emma Donoghue is best-known for her complex, character-driven psychological thriller Room (adapted as both film and play) and her unusual historical novel Frog Music. She would seem an odd match for this site, but her 2016 novel, The Wonder, raises questions about science, the supernatural, and the lenses through which we observe the world.
In 1859, a Nightingale nurse accepts a job in a remote Irish village, for a patient who appears to defy the known laws of nature.
Jim Henson’s visually stunning epic, The Dark Crystal, amazed (and terrified) children in the 1980’s. Now the company he founded is bringing the world to life again in a new series for Netflix. Puppets and all!
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance doesn’t appear to have a release date yet. Here’s the Press Release from The Jim Henson Company.
Supergirl, “Resist:” The Daxamites take over National City, as much an alien-magnet as Doctor Who‘s London. Cat Grant makes a guest appearance.
Arrow, “Missing:” Adrian Chase’s people capture most of Ollie’s allies, requiring him to turn to other associates, not all of whom have been friends.
Season Finales await.
Despite all the delays and rumors…it’s happening.

This episode brings us to the point we feared, and it’s great to see the excellent chemistry between Barry and Snart again. If the entire episode had been about the Flash and Captain Cold pulling off a robbery, I would have enjoyed it, thoroughly.
As it stands, I have, alas, very little else positive to say about “Infantino Street.”
I do note a caveat under “Story.”
Other CW DCU Shows will receive a discussion tomorrow.
Fox previewed a pair of genre-based comedies this week. The Orville, written and starring Seth MacFarlane seems to trod upon Galaxy Quest‘s territory, and Ghosted, which kind of feels like Warehouse 13. Kind of. And it stars half the leads of Hot Tub Time Machine 2.
Whereas the previous episode departed from and expanded upon the content of the source material, this week is based almost entirely on events from the novel, reconceptualised, adapted, and rearranged into another gripping hour of television.
With the fourth iteration/third reboot of The Mummy coming up soon, we’ve got a lot of Universal’s classic horror/action franchises getting releases. In fact, some of those collections have two seemingly identical listings with two different product identifications, so I listed both.
