(The New?) DC TV Report for the week ending 1/22/2021

[Note to readers: Despite the decision to end The DC TV REPORT podcast, it seems that's not going to stop Ed O'Hare from creating his episode notes every week. He insists that this website post those notes weekly or things may, as he puts it, "have to get serious".]


This is the DC TV Report for the week ending Saturday January 23rd, 2020. I'm here to bring you recaps, news and commentary for all live-action television shows based on DC Comics. There was 1 new episodes this week including a premiere.

Batwoman Season 2 Premiere:
"What Happened to Kate Kane?" 1) After a plane supposedly carrying Kate Kane as a passenger crashed on the shores of Gotham, the Bat-suit was recovered by Ryan Wilder, a falsely convicted ex-con living out of her van and looking for justice for the murder of her adoptive mother. 2) Tommy Elliot's Bruce Wayne face fooled Luke into letting Tommy into the Batcave and giving him the Kryptonite shard. 3) A grief-stricken Jacob was given a tip about Alice's whereabouts. 4) Sophie told Julia her suspicions that the plane crash may involve Safiyah. Last Minute Reveal: After giving up the Bat-suit, Ryan sat on top her van, talked to her plant and noticed the Kryptonite bullet wound in her shoulder looked infected!

Ed's Winner for the Week: Ryan Wilder - Despite my reservations about the decision to not recast Kate Kane, Javicia Leslie delivered an engaging performance and I found myself highly intrigued to see this new character's story play out. The test will be whether or not it gels with all the other narrative elements left hanging from season 1.
