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 […]

Arrowcave. Ollie’s flatlining. Barry’s freaking because “I usually only work on dead people” (hee!), but with Felicity’s urging he narrows it down to two substances that might be causing Ollie’s symptoms.

Get ready, gang, it’s HORSE O’ CLOCK. Okay, so for those of you who don’t know (all four of you), one of the most infamous aspects of the Silver Age, and certainly the thing most often brought up with respect to Supergirl and the kookiness of the era, is: “Supergirl dated her horse.” Which is […]
