The TV is a lot lighter this week as “Summer” is starting, though I am not sure that traditional seasons are as much of a thing as they once were. None the less, we are allegedly seeing the Season Finales of Game of Thrones, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Doom Patrol. Elementary returns and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has just started back up, too. To flesh things out, Good Omens and Swamp Thing are starting next week (May 31st.) To flesh things out, Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger and The Twilight Zone continue on, and if you’ve been busy, Lucifer season 4 is still sitting out there in the Netflix queue.

Last week, Supergirl was saving on budgets by having their two antagonists lookalikes have a masks in order to film easier. I made fun of this.
This week, they do it again, but I also realize it’s something I’ve been wanting. In most Superhero media, there is some excuse for the mask to come off so that they can have their big name actor show off their beautiful emotions instead of letting us see the hero’s face we were accustomed to. Leaving masks on like Supergirl has done lets them actually show us the hero’s masked face we are used to!
…except in Supergirl where the hero’s face usually is exposed.
