It seems the summer season has hit and taken most of our normal television with it. Good Omens drops, which should give you a few episodes to keep you busy around Marvel’s season finale of Cloak and Dagger, while the SHIELD agents return to Earth for an episode. Holmes and Watson return to New York for two episodes, and it gets difficult to see what’s in The Twilight Zone. If you still find yourself wishing you had at least a tiny bit of Marvel’s Distaff Counterpart*, Swamp Thing has you covered.
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger
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.
We have a few of our big name titles reaching the end of their seasons, such as Flash, Arrow, and Riverdale, with others getting to their penultimate adventure, such as Supergirl, Game of Thrones, and Doom Patrol. I’d ask what we think we would put on in the breakroom once they wrap up, but I suspect we all have plenty of backlog to catch up on. Which seasonal climax are you most looking forward to?
Busy week, sorry the schedule is going up late! We are getting to the point where there’s almost too much to list, but with the Arrowverse on DC’s CW winding down we have Marvel stepping up with the return of S.H.E.I.L.D., and Lucifer drops all of Season 4, Netflix style! Also, if you like Disney’s animated offerings, DuckTales and Big Hero 6 also seem to be coming out once a day. Am I missing anything you guys are watching?
In our breakroom this week, if we are aren’t to busy discussing the big game, we can watch the war escalated for the American Gods, or watch it actually happen in Game of Thrones. The seasons are winding down for the CW shows, as Supergirl remains hunted, Arrow pretends to be a true crime story, the Legends are all about couples, Nora goes rogue on The Flash, and Cyborg gets to Doom Patrol for ants. In Riverdale, we get some adults’ idea of what a high school prom looks like. Cloak and Dagger gets deep into sex trafficking.
Another busy week as we rush headlong into the ending of the regular broadcast seasons. The American Gods give us some Mad Sweeney backstory. We get a calm evening at Winterfell on Game of Thrones. In the Decidedly Comprehensive corner, Supergirl reads Dostoevsky’s first great novel, Arrow focuses on Diggle, the Legends send unsolicited emojis, the Flash brings back their winter villains, and Doom Patrol lets Cyborg perform an upgrade. In Riverdale, the Easter themed little sister is still missing, and on Cloak and Dagger, Tyrone rolls up a new character sheet. Orville has to deal with the fallout from last week’s temporal shenanigans. For fans of slightly less genre specific shows, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is scheduled to make a return, and Cobra Kai kicks off season 2 this week, also!
This week, we return with a new post title with 20% more DC and 100% more dragons! I didn’t even know Doom Patrol had started, and we are already 10 episodes in, but they will also appear here along side the warring armies of Westeros. Out homegrown deities explore what happened to one of the more popular in the pantheon, the hammer wielding Donar. Except for Supergirl, the other Disguised Champions are back on patrol alongside their doomed streaming exclusive friends. Arrow’s Laurel redemptive arc hits a rocky patch, Mona reads some classic literature, and Flash gives us answers on Nora’s motivations. The junkies in Riverdale find themselves deeper into the clutches of a cult. Marvel gives us Cloak fighting his past while Dagger fights a sex trafficking ring. The Orvile’s description seems like we get our classic time loop episode. My most biggest anticipation this week however is watching Star Trek: Discovery boldly goes into its season finale.
While Arrow and The Flash hide from the April Fools that are everywhere, the fools of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow return to the airwaves to keep Supergirl company. The Legends spend a lot of time dealing with their Bureau (not this Bureau,) and Supergirl gives us Ms. Teschmacher’s tale. American Gods give us more pairings of Laura and her Leprechaun, while Bilquis debates a spider.
Riverdale continues to explorer the drug trade and boxing worlds, Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger also returns, deciding their great powers must come with great responsibility, and may not be so great after all.
Sabrina also returns with either the last episode of Season 1, or the first episode of Season 2, depending on where you look. If you want to warm up from her Chilling Adventures, Arthur and The Tick drop their second season this week, also.
