The thirteenth Doctor has returned, with a James Bond twist on that most typical of Tardis Tales, the alien invasion of earth.

Riddler: Riddle me this: What did Nadia Comaneci do after she scored seven perfect tens at the 1976 Montreal Olympics?
Harley: Win a medal?
Poison Ivy: Not menstruate until her twenties?
Riddler: No! She broke a record! And that’s what you sound like. A broken record.
The new, R-Rated Harley Quinn series premiered at the end of November. Here’s our take on the pilot of a series set in a version of the DCU where everyone swears heavily and reality doesn’t take itself too seriously.
The Crisis on Infinite Earths continues, as the characters move to Batwoman’s show and encounter a couple more Legends, some spare Supermen, and an especially Dark Knight.
René Auberjonois, whose numerous roles include Odo in Deep Space Nine, has died at the age of 79 from lung cancer.
He will be missed.
Wonder Woman has been a bright spot in DC’s uneven foray into a shared superhero movie-verse….
…and her next film, set in 1984, looks like its Friday, June 5 release day won’t be a Blue Monday.
The Crisis on Infinite Earths comes to DC-TV starting tonight, with Supergirl. We’ll have reviews—and we have an overview.
Lex Pendragon: On the CW, five shows are combining their audiences into one super crossover event, Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Based (at least loosely) on the DC comics event Crisis on Infinite Earths, the comics story that took the various Earths and different continuities and eventually combined the multiverse down to a single continuity. The Multiverse option was appealing to the showrunners, who embraced it to allow a crossover between Supergirl on CBS and The Flash on the CW. The shows loved to exploit this, giving us Flash hopping between universes regularly, using it for further crossovers, and eventually even referencing past shows such as the 90s Flash and Constantine (from NBC), who eventually joined Legends of Tomorrow.
“I‘d like to go to Themyscira.”
Lex and I will be alternating reviews to the forthcoming CWTVDCU version of Crisis on Infinite Earths, starting tomorrow with a joint overview of the series, followed by Lex’s take on the official start with Supergirl. Despite a plethora of guest-stars that will bring Smallville, Superman Returns, the 1990s Flash and, just possibly, the 1960s Batman (we don’t yet know which character Burt Ward will actually be playing) into continuity with the various CW series, the Crisis will leave many worlds untouched. The chaotic DC movies seem disconnected from this event, as do prestige shows like Titans and Doom Patrol.
Also missing? The latest incarnation of Scooby-Doo, who has belonged to DC for some decades now. In 2019, the pooch and his Mystery-solving friends appear in Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?, a series that revisits the premise of the first Scooby spin-off, The New Scooby-Doo Movies (1972-1974), in which, each week, Mystery, Inc. stumbled onto a mystery and a famous guest-star.
In this episode, it happens to be a certain DC Amazon.
ChiZine Publications made a name for themselves for quality horror, dark fantasy, and SF. They earned that, through the books they produced, which include works by Nancy Baker, Ellen Datlow, Nick Cutter/Craig Davison, Ed Kurtz, Livia Llewellyn, David Nickle, Douglas Smith, Paul G. Tremblay, George A. Romero (R.I.P.), and many others. They threw great parties at SF Cons. Aspiring authors aspired to join their roster.
Things slowly turned dark, culminating last month in a story of scandals and allegations that has not yet ended.
The original film never received a sequel but, thirty-seven years later, E.T. and Elliot are reuniting in a heart-warming effort to sell you stuff over the Holiday Season:
But it’s an impressive effort, regardless.
Happy (American) Thanksgiving!
What follow is an account, as I choose to remember it, of my twelfth year on this planet…
Brain matter will squeeze through a keyhole.
We’re a bit behind for a review of this 2018 novel, a sort-of literary/YA Stranger Things set in Niagara Falls, Canada, but it has experienced a surge of popularity this autumn, and so, before we get too far into winter, let’s return to the 1980s and the summer-to-Halloween run of the Saturday Night Ghost Club.
