>Winn's father, a supervillain named Toyman, escapes from prison and contacts his son; Cat offers Lucy a position at CatCo; Alex wants Hank to uncover Maxwell Lord's plans.
Hopefully it helps Winn become not an asshole.
Gotham doesn't come back until February, and the CW shows are lined up on Tuesday, Wednesdays and Thursdays now. I don't know what the line-up for Marvel's stuff on ABC looks like.
It pounds a bit heavily on the Girl Power shtick, but to be perfectly frank, geeks have become ludicrously sensitive and reactionary and only make themselves look like troglodytes when they rant about "SJWs" every time a woman expresses herself.
>"What do you think I should do?"
>"I think you should take the job."
>"I WASN'T ASKING FOR YOUR PERMISSION GOSH"
>storms off angrily
God damn, I'm a woman and even I can't follow that line of reasoning. What the fuck?
I kind of want to see Toyman and Trickster have a creepy-off now.
seriously? No one talking about how Winn is probably a very sophisticated "toy"? Wasn't that one of like the best Toyman stories? About how he reveals all the other Toymen were just toys he made? (Even the good ones)
That... god damn that'd be a good twist.
>Why is everyone so damn trigger happy in the DC TV universe?
Even fictional America is the same as real life America. There's little concern for shooting up a suspect if s/he has killed people before. Feds/cops are especially good at this because "you killed one of my own, you deserve to die."
muh Fed/police feelings >>> doing sane things
It's comfy. Which is another way of saying light fun with a good mood and happy endings that leave you feeling better than when you sat down..
Which is really what Super-stories should be about.
Agreed. Gotham has so many better points than Supergirl. Set design, clothing design, the over the top crime noir dialog, the crazy murder scenes. I like Supergirl but Gotham is way, way more creative.
Maxwell is at dinner with Kara's sister. She looks at her phone, then we see Maxwell in his labratory building looking at his watch at the same time. Maxwell at the lab is J'onn snooping around.
You know, this show's version of Toyman is plenty creepy, but I can't help but think that they got this by watching Mark Hamill on the Flash and thinking "SHIT WE GOTTA GET THIS IN OUR SHOW"
Oh right, I forgot about that. Interesting how both actors play very similar characters differently. Mark Hamill's character is, for lack of a better word, much more cartoonish.
>YOU are my greatest creation
OH god I know its a cliche but its my favorite line.
OH I can't look
Ice wouldn't immediately melt on hitting someone's skin. If it was sharp enough it can still pierce through flesh a bit. Shot fast enough while it's compacted and it can act like a bullet.
Shut the fuck up about J'onn, Kara, you don't know shit about what he's been through or what he can do. He's also been on Earth a lot longer than you have. Let him make his own fucking decisions.
I think they were using the "you were my greatest creation" line to hammer home the idea that he's scared he may take after his dad. Not literally "made".
I'm actually disappointed, that would've been a REALLY cool twist.
Based White Martians appear
Nah, he confessed to her because he didn't want to keep things bottled up like his dad did. She didn't return his affection, obviously.
At least this is something they can't go back on, like Cat discovering Supergirl's identity. I'm glad they moved quickly on this. Interesting to see where that story goes from here. I really like Winn when he's not written as an asshole. Which I guess is about half the time, so that's unfair praise.
This was my first episode of Supergirl. It wasn't bad, but a lot of my problems with it involved "you don't like this because she is a girl," pointless drama with Jimmy and his girlfriend, and going too slowly. I'll probably stick with it, though. I'm finding it more interesting than early SHIELD was, and I stuck with that.
That would require directly acknowledging that Batman exists and is friends with Supes at this point. Also, you would need a feasible reason for Babs/Steph to leave Gotham.
What the fuck ever happened to that TNT Titans show
episode consists entirely of Starfire making faux pas like taking off her clothes in public and such around the city as Kara chases after her trying to get her to keep her clothes on
It's less in your face than the first few episodes, but it still creeps in from time to time, like tonight. But ultimately I guess the setup was more to push James to going back to photography or other street level work, and it just padded out the drama early on.
They've never been bad enough for me to quit the show entirely (yet), but it can get a little frustrating at times. It really helps that Kara herself has an actress portraying her who can sell dramatic parts better than the leads for the CW superhero shows.
“It is an umbrella for what hopefully will be many shows,” TNT president Kevin Reilly said during his executive session at Television Critics Association on Thursday in Pasadena, Calif. “We’re going to put a variety of different genre shows, some of which may have a weird sense of humor, some of which may be actually downright frightening, some of which may be a unique blend of genres, but all united under the ‘Tales From the Crypt’ brand. Night is definitely going to direct, most likely the first one, and we’ll see how that evolves.”
The block will also feature short and long-form storytelling executive-produced by Shyamalan and his partner at Binding Edge Pictures, Ashwin Rajan. Reilly said TNT has “about four properties in the development pipeline to move through this.”
He said the “Tales from the Crypt” episodes will be an hour each. Additional series will be added in the coming months.
“This … horror block demonstrates not only TNT’s commitment to working with today’s top talents, but also our strategy to stand out in today’s marketplace by challenging the conventional rules of programming and scheduling,” Sarah Aubrey, TNT’s EVP of original programming, said in a statement.
Shyamalan, who is also an exec producer on the Fox mystery series “Wayward Pines,” which recently received a second season order, said in a statement that “to be part of such a beloved brand like ‘Tales from the Crypt,’ something I grew up watching, and to also have the chance to push the boundaries of genre television as a whole, is an inspiring opportunity that I can’t wait to dive into,” he said.
The show is fine; the only person who ever forced that shit was Cat Grant and it became apparent that A) that her character actually climbed her way though the ranks and B) she's hilarious.
It's one thing if they had Kara giving lectures on wymyn's rights, but they don't and they never have. People need to get the sand out of their vaginas and quit sperging out whenever women talk about women.
I think they've decreased mostly so that they're not as annoying anymore. I was mostly impressed when the episode about legacy (kind of people getting mad at her for being inexperienced and not being Superman) avoided gender altogether since judging by the early episodes you would have expected it to be a big part of that theme.
>I know CW would love more capeshit.
Right now there's stuffed a little too full of it though and they might be scared of diminishing returns or popping their bubble. I would guess they're waiting to see how well LoT does before deciding where to move forward. If they want to do anthologies with an ensemble cast, or go back to just doing more series that focus on a single character.
I wish they'd cut out the name-dropping in literally every sentence that comes out of her mouth. Occasionally it can be funny, but they try too hard to force her into relevance with the "real" world and it comes off weird.
Cat is weird though in that she generally blows other people out for talking about it like when she told Kara that there is jackshit wrong with being called a girl.
Personally I only hate this shit because it feels like its slowly turning into how people think female characters should talk. Its just seeping into everything as a way to replace real characterization.
Supergirl isn't all that terrible with it but it needs to stop before it becomes a real problem.
They came out right before Supergirl aired about their regret of passing on it. Once The Flash took off, they want more of it.
They're trying to flesh out Legends of Tomorrow to fill that void.
If WB doesn't retool Cyborg to be Titans, I'm going to be upset.
Either that or cameo the Teen Titans cast to give them nods. Them, Daly, Conroy, and Hamill all deserve cameos
I guess that's good. I'll stick around
I really wouldn't mind an anthology show on Friday night. Just a new hero every episode and every now with maybe one or two that are featured more often. It'd probably be too expensive in this day and age though.
>Personally I only hate this shit because it feels like its slowly turning into how people think female characters should talk. Its just seeping into everything as a way to replace real characterization.
Your feelings are wrong though.
That's because Cat isn't a feminist, she's a suit and thinks social issues and concerns are fucking retarded. Most suits treat the stuff SJWs and /co/ntrarians get bent out of shape over like a big fucking joke. Cat's a successful woman, but if you put her in a room with an SJW, she'd make the SJW cry for fun, because to her the SJW is a stupid, no money pleb.
I'm thinking LoT will be one season, maybe two. But if it's one season, JSA will be next year. Arrow Season 5 is next year, and I assume that'll be the end since that'll be the end of the flashbacks. Have him head the JSA then.
Can you not tell he's using it satirize the movement or are you being a little shit?
>Long ago in a distant land, I, Eobard Thawne, the shape-shifting Master of Darkness, unleashed an unspeakable evil! But a foolish superhero wielding a magic bow stepped forth to oppose me. Before the final blow was struck, I tore open a portal in time and flung him into the future, where my evil is law! Now the fool seeks to return to the past, and undo the future that is
We've heard rumors that LOT has been really expensive and probably won't get a season 2 but we've also heard rumors that the show will have a revolving roster. I'm just gonna wait and see. I hope it sticks around longer.
Wish it had a better name though. Does DC even have an actual team like them? I can't think of one.
it doesn't, that's what makes this show so exciting. we have no frame of reference for how the characters interact with each other and the plot, so it's a totally blank slate and nearly everything is unknown,
No. Having the modifier white after angry, as if white men are angrier than anyone is the marking of a sheltered cunt who doesn't get called on their shit. It wouldn't be bad if A SINGLE FUCKING CHARACTER called them on it. But as it is its just the typical liberal arts college snobbery to expect from these types.
>she asks if he wants her to work with him
>says whatever makes you happy
>but what so YOU think
>I think you should take it
>I didn't ask for your permission
>this motherfuckers face as he wonders what the fuck is going on
It's a fucking retarded way to try and trap someone who can fly. Or break the box. Or do a hundred other things. Batman is fucking cancer, thanks to him now every single cape show needs a normal villain who gets by on being smart and creative, even though anyone with two brain cells could stop their bullshit.
I expect it more from cbs than cw. Out of all the networks they get the highest ratings so every show they make must have widespread appeal to keep those up. I was honestly shocked when they picked this up. They usually do nothing but crime procedurals and multi camera sitcoms since those are the easiest to get people to watch.
I like how these threads need to resort to storytimes in order to stay a live and relevant.
