Comic Television Discussion – Week beginning April 15th

On the CW, we are Dropping Content as the seasons come to a close, so I have revamped these posts to include some more comic television!  I am not going to say I got everything based on a comic, but I added the ones I watch.  If there’s another comic show you like, please comment and I’ll include it.  I’ll throw any streaming series up as they show up.

For our Debut Catalog, Lucifer thinks he is going on nocturnal missions, Supergirl returns bringing Laurie Metcalf with her.  The Flash continues fighting against intelligence, Black Lightning ends his first season with a showdown of black vs. white, Supergranad is still trapped in a terrorist cell, and Arrow has expanding businesses.

From the House of Ideas, Legion is still crazy (and that description probably won’t change) and the Agents take a trip to Rome to stop Malficent’s daughter from breaking the world.  In Riverdale, the “teens” get prepare to put on their bloody musical.

    • And according to my wife, (who is familiar with Carrie where I am not) Alice Cooper did not have the characterization of Carrie’s mother at all!
