I have managed to get nearly everything to be advertisement free in my life, which means that until something is outright told to me, I tend to miss that it exists. His Dark Materials is a new genre show that I had no concept of, so didn’t know it needed to go on our list. If anyone finds any more of those, please, chime in! The week is a bit more bare than usual, but we get to see Watchmen explain the past, Black Lightning have a father and daughter bonding episode, The Good Doctor tries to get laid, The Flash gives us the first half of a two parter leading into Crisis, Arrow tries to restart his game, Riverdale acknowledges these kids are getting to old for high school, and Titans finishes its season. We don’t get a description for Castle Rock nor The Mandalorian, but if you’re watching either you probably have a good idea what to expect from these episode.
