The first half of the long-awaited Gorilla City two-parter really stands alone, though it sets up next week.
Let’s gear up for some gorilla warfare.
Legends of Tomorrow: “Camelot/3000”
The Legends play “Connecticut Yankee,” with even less historical accuracy than usual. We expect nothing less from a story set in Ye Olde Arthurian Times; at least, this time, the writers have an explanation for the anachronisms.
Arrow: “The Sin Eater”
The Team take on a metahuman girl gang, and authorities seek the Green Arrow… because he’s wanted for murder.
The Flash receives his own review, later today.
Not an imaginary story! Not a dream!
The Bride of Mxyzptlk!
Supergirl and Mon-El’s Super-date!
Why can’t Supergirl’s sister celebrate Valentine’s Day?
Winn’s groovy alien girlfriend!
The Martian love-message!
For better and worse, this belated Valentine’s episode played very much like a Silver Age Special. Pity Mxyzptlk wasn’t as whimsical as his Silver Age counterpart.

“The Mormons are gonna be pissed.”
This season doesn’t waste any time getting to the next crisis. This week contrasts striking visual designs with galactically horrible decisions. Our protagonists do these horrible things for what they believe are good reasons.
Unfortunately, the episode ends with them unable to find comfort…..
DC’s TV-verse serves up only two shows this week. On Supergirl, the Maid of Might stands by Lena Luthor when she seems to join forces with Lillian and Metallo. Kara ends the show thinking her support for her friend has been vindicated; we’re less certain.
In this week’s episode of Arrow
, Melkotians force our heroes to relive the gunfight at OK Corral tensions increase among allies, and we learn Mad Dog’s origin.
Next week goes full-on comic book, with the Flash engaging in warfare at Gorilla City and Supergirl mixing it up with a pest from the fifth dimension.
As the trial of Morgan Geyser and Anissa Weier nears (March or April of this year), we review Irene Taylor Brodsky’s disturbing HBO documentary about the Slenderman Stabbing case—and about the history and impact of the online horror icon.

Plots converge and suspense intensifies with the most recent episode of The Expanse.
Note: We will post discussions if they receive responses. In any case, the season will receive two more multi-ep reviews, respecting its story-arc-heavy nature.
Supergirl: “The Martian Chronicles”
A ray of hope shines for fans, as this fairly well-done episodes pits Supergirl and her Martian associates against a bounty hunter from the red planet.
Legends of Tomorrow: “Turncoat”
The Legends travel to 1776 when they realize something’s wrong with Washington.
Team Arrow heads to Russia; Lance returns from rehab.
