The Extremely Ill-Advised Arrow Project: Episode 2.07 – “State v. Queen”


We start “six months ago,” with Moira’s press conference telling everyone to get out of the Glades. Cut to Iron Heights, where the guards are evacuating while the prisoners are left to fend for themselves. In his cell, Count Vertigo (who I guess is…not in a mental health institution anymore?) hides under his bed during […]


Supergirl Saturday: Action Comics #290, “Supergirl’s Super Boy-Friends!”

Happy Saturday! This week, Supergirl’s boyfriends are, like, actually the most annoying. Get better men, girl! Our story begins with Linda realizing just how trendy she’s become: I like that she describes her wig the same way someone might describe Batman. Later, Linda and Dick go on a date and sparks fly. Boring, brush-cutted sparks: […]


The Smallville Project: Episode 2.08 – “Ryan”

Jess: A darkened lab. Ryan (remember Ryan?) sits shirtlessly in a chair, covered with electrodes. Rebecca: The WB: “Even our children are shirtless!” Jess: “All right, Ryan, what am I looking at?” a man in a lab coat asks. When Ryan doesn’t answer, the doctor snaps at him. Ryan sullenly describes the pictures on the […]


The Extremely Ill-Advised Arrow Project: Episode 2.06 – “Keep Your Enemies Closer”

Night. Roy jabs the flechette Ollie gave him into an alley wall. Queen Consolidated. Isabel is reading Ollie the riot act for being a total flake where the business is concerned. Felicity interrupts, to both of their annoyance, and says she needs to talk to Ollie about “your, uh, plans. With Mr. Harper?” Ollie excuses […]


Supergirl Saturday: Action Comics #289, “Superman’s Super-Courtship!”

Happy weekend, folks! Did you enjoy the story where Superman came up with a contrived reason to make out all over his underage cousin’s face? Were you hoping for more of that gross action? Well, this week’s Supergirl Saturday is for you! LINDA THAT’S WEIRD. I KNOW YOU’RE NEW TO EARTH BUT TRUST ME, IT’S […]

The Smallville Project: Episode 2.07 – “Lineage”


Jess: Kent Farm, day. Martha hollers at Clark that he’s running late and the whole family has some very cute banter about super speed and lateness; Jonathan teases that for all her complaints about Clark, Martha was even late to their wedding. Meanwhile, Clark toasts a slice of bread with his heat vision in a […]

The Extremely Ill-Advised Arrow Project: Episode 2.05 – “League of Assassins”


Flashback. The Queen’s Gambit, with the storm raging outside. Sara’s on the phone to Quentin, lying through her teeth about being at college, then hangs up to flirt with Ollie. The conversation transitions into the dialogue from the pilot flashback with Old Sara about the storm and Sara; then the boat tips and Sara’s pulled […]

Supergirl Saturday: Action Comics #287, “Supergirl’s Greatest Challenge!” and #288, “The Man Who Made Supergirl Cry!”


No Supergirl is an island, so how about a couple of stories where Linda teams up with her fellow superteens? First up, it’s “Supergirl’s Greatest Challenge!” (It’s not actually that great.) But before we get to the superteens, we have a bit of Linda hanging out with regular teens: “Is it an Elvis Presley fan […]

The Smallville Project: Episode 2.06 – “Redux”


Jess: Gym class. Clark and Pete are racing in the pool to the dulcet tones of “Boom Boom Boom (Let Me Hear You Say Wayo),” and I’m just gonna pause to laugh for ten minutes. Rebecca: THIS SONG IS FROM 1995! Jess: SO RANDOM. Right, where were we? Oh yeah, what the hell kind of […]

The Great Disney Blogathon: Peter Pan 2: Return to Neverland (2002)


Return to Neverland is one of just 10 DisneyToon films to be released in theaters, joining fairly elite sequel ranks with Bambi II and The Jungle Book 2.1 Considering it was originally slated for a simple straight-to-DVD release, it must have been considered surprisingly good by the company to merit being shown in theaters. And […]
