Hope you’ve got a lot of free time to catch up this week! The DC shows are at their last episodes before Crisis, which gives us a mid-season finale feel to Flash and Arrow. Supergirl and Batwoman will also be taking part, and Legends will pop in but their shows haven’t been leaning as heavily into it. Black Lightening is also rumors to show up, but he’s still busy trying to free his city from governmental occupation on his show. Meanwhile on HBO, the Watchmen discusses the events of the original comic, but otherwise has nothing to do with the rest of the DC properties. His Dark Materials borrows a name from a vampire movie, but shows no signs of featuring bloodsuckers. The Good Doctor visits his estranged, dying father. Riverdale producers still believe video tapes are a thing. The Mandalorian works with a rookie. The Blacklist stops people from retiring. In you wanted something nostalgic and lighter, Fuller House’s latest season drops, also.
