Welcome back to the weekly episodic breakdown of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow on ENR. Last week the entire perspective on this show changed and the DCTVU is never going to look the same. This week the team travels to 1987, visits their younger selves and learns in detail about the tides of change and how it applies to our time travel heroes…er legends. Read more...

With episode 4 of Legends of Tomorrow the stride has finally been hit Though for this viewer it was more a sudden understanding of what the CW was trying to accomplish that chaged my perspective of the show dramatically. If you have read my reviews of the first three episodes you know I have been both critical and praising of the show but this episode changes everything. And by changes I mean the name of the game.

To make a show primarily focused on time travel is a difficult thing when you rely on the headiness of the plot to anchor the viewer rather than the emotional bonds of less intricately plotted shows. One of the easiest ways to do this however involves making the time periods relevant and interesting enough to tell more self-contained stories within the larger. But with Legends, as we have discussed, there is a serious piece missing from the series, even more than last season’s freshman run. You see, the best parts of the CW superhero lineup on the other nights of the week is the deep thematic approach that is not taken here and those themes tend to make us emotionally connected to them.

For the first time, it is my honor to walk you through DC’s Legends of Tomorrow each week like I did for Flash, Arrow and Supergirl last season. However, as I watched the two-part season premiere for examination and exploration here I was immediately struck by how different this series is structurally from the rest of the Arrowverse.   Read more...

Back in the 1990s in a time before the 1992 Japanese animated series landmark Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon came to the North American airwaves, America-based screen media studios renaissance-Atlantic Entertainment and Toon Makers joined forces to develop an American live-action/animation hybrid re-interpretation of Japanese comic book writer and illustrator Naoko Takeuchi's famous superheroine saga with the intention likely to feature alternate secret identity versions of the Sailor Senshi as the team was intended to be portrayed as a multi-racial superheroine squad like what each incarnation of Power Rangers is usually focused on. However, although a pilot was filmed along with a music video-tie in, neither the pilot was officially released, nor did the planned American T.V. series take on the Sailor Moon saga get launched.

Welcome back to the weekly Arrow review, as we walk through the season together episode by episode. In the sixth episode of this – the fourth season – it seems Arrow has finally caught up to itself. What I mean by this is that after three seasons (two of which we weren’t sure if we were watching Batman or Green Arrow) and six episodes of a fourth the loose ends have wrapped, the characterization is complete and the team is defined and each member has a role and a function that is fully understood.

While the DC Cinematic Universe is likely to be internet cannon fodder and contentious to the last fanboy it is clear the television division of WB has struck gold in the seasonal superhero series department. For 10 seasons the WB squirmed and experimented and tested ideas on Smallville and when Arrow launched 4 seasons ago the finished formula resulted in the successful ratings launches of The Flash, Gotham and Supergirl and critically acclaimed but canceled Constantine. So leaving out the latter and focusing on the former it is clear that the spines of all these shows follow what has worked with Arrow and any attempt to disguise it is abandoned altogether.

Normally, I review The Flash here on ENR but Arrow, after a 3 season delay, has caught my attention and it is an amazing privilege to review it here for you. Especially after the  great attention it got last season from ENR. Read more...
