Supergirl Saturday: Action Comics #299, “The Fantastic Secret of Superbaby II!”

sgsat_ac299_1

And now for something completely different! After all the shenanigans over the past few weeks with Lena, Lex, and Lesla, I’m sure Linda is very glad that this week’s adventures contain no one with the initials “L.L.” (except her, of course). Hey, Supergirl scored the cover! Our story begins with Supergirl visiting Kandor. Among other […]

The Smallville Project: Episode 2.13 – “Suspect”

Jess: Luthor Castle, a stormy night. Lionel’s on the second level of the study, reading Nietzsche and listening to opera. Oh my GOD. Rebecca: This episode was apparently brought to you by the Smallville Script Generator. Jess: Someone calls and he tells them he’ll be going back to Metropolis tomorrow alone, because he’s pretty sure […]

The Extremely Ill-Advised Arrow Project: Episode 2.14 – 2.16

2.14 – Time of Death: We open with William Tockman, a.k.a. Clock King, directing two henchmen in a perfectly timed theft at KORD ENTERPRISES (!!! WHEN DO I GET MY TED KORD, SHOW, WHEN). He then murders one of them for messing up the timing. Ollie hosts an awkward So You’re Not Dead After All […]

Supergirl Saturday: Action Comics #297, “The Forbidden Weapons of Krypton!” and #298, “The Super-Powers of Lex Luthor!”

Back to the Silver Age! When we last left our heroine, she had overheard her new friend Lena Thorul confessing to Dick Malverne that she is Supergirl. This is, of course, untrue. Why would Lena lie? Is she turning evil, like her older brother Lex Luthor? We pick up right where last issue left off: […]

State of the Pull List

It’s September again, and three years since DC ripped my beautiful, beloved post-Crisis universe away and replaced it with a sad, colorless landscape and costumes with way too much piping. Not that I’m bitter. Anyway, I thought it was once again time to check in and see what I’m reading on a monthly basis: Supergirl: […]

The Extremely Ill-Advised Arrow Project: Episodes 2.11 – 2.13

Arrow213

Yeeeah, so. I had always intended to stop doing these full-length episode recaps once Flash premiered; I was barely keeping up with two shows a week, and three would be impossible. But a combination of aching wrists, new writing commitments, and the fast-approaching Season 3 premiere means I’m going to have to switch over to […]

Supergirl Saturday: Supergirl v6 #0, 8-13, “Girl in the World”

sgsat_sgv6_0_1

While I’ve left you on a tantalizing…ish Lena-related cliffhanger, let’s take another break to look at Supergirl’s current series. Fittingly, this arc also features Supergirl making friends with a superpowered gal with some dark family history. Honestly, “arc” is a slightly strong word to use. Really, we’re writing to the trade here, since there’s a […]

The Great Disney Blogathon: Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure (2001)

ladyandthetramp2

After a few sequels that were way better than I expected them to be, it was inevitable that I’d eventually encounter one that is just as mediocre as I expected. Enter Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure, an utterly by-the-numbers direct-to-video nothing. First, some history, because Scamp’s actually got a pretty interesting one! Though […]

Supergirl Saturday: Action Comics #296, “The Girl Who Was Supergirl’s Double!”

sgsat_ac296_1

Last week, we met Lena Thorul, Kara’s first real gal pal. But gal pals can be tricky when your writers are sexist! (Sigh.) Wow, Lena, dramatic much? Our story begins with Linda, Lena, and some other random girl out for a stroll, when: Lena’s so helpful and heroic, so unlike her older brother! Also, what’s […]

The Smallville Project: Episode 2.12 – “Insurgence”

smallville212.11

Jess: Luthor Castle. Closeup on Lex’s steepled fingers. Alexander, you are a parody of yourself. He yells at some terrified businessman about something boring having to do with Lionel getting the jump on him. The guy flees and Lex flings his computer onto the floor, smashing it – then picks up a flower that was […]
