Comic Television Discussion – Week beginning April 23th


There’s a big name documentary about how conflicts continue forever because groups of people are constantly seeking to address wrongs that didn’t actually happen to them coming out in theater this week, and I have been distracted by that.  However, their Dark Cousins are still on television.  Our favorite devil takes in a ballet, our second favorite Girl of Steel takes on her boss’s dad’s mind, one of the speedsters invites a favorite guest star back to keep up the strongest pun/title game since Legends’ season finishes, Supergrandpa sings lead for a Guns ‘n Roses hit, and Arrow has to find some new teammates.

The Marvelous shows give us more trippy confusion on Legion (this time, from Syd) and the Agents face Die Hard in a Lighthouse.  The teens who borrowed their names from Archie comics have a violent manhunt and rage against the police.

  1. The teens who borrowed their names from Archie comics have a violent manhunt and rage against the police.

    Bureau comment of the week!

  2. Lucifer was a good episode, if predictable. I am still waiting for it to be revealed that it’s not Chloe loving you that negates divine magic, but your love of Chloe, or of anyone other than yourself.

    Supergirl has turned Mon-El fully into discount Superman. I’m not familiar with the comic version, but I figure that’s pretty much how he’s always been.

    Legion: What is with the floating green hands!?!?!
