Welcome to the DC TV Report for the week ending Saturday June 24th, 2017. I'm Edward O'Hare, nickname To Be Determined. There was only 1 new episode this week. So I'm going to start a new tradition. If there is only 1 or no new episodes, I'm going to give a review for a randomly selected episode or movie from DC Comics past. I hope this can remind fans of fun times and maybe introduce people to obscure or long-forgotten entries in the DC mythos. Also be sure to check out Wicked Theory's 2-Part DC TV Season Wrap-Up with special guests Stefanie Muniz from Gotham Lights and Sara Netzley, freelance writer for Entertainment Weekly. There is so much going on and I haven't even gotten into the shows yet. Let's get going:
This week we talk about Ron Howard taking over the Han Solo solo film, Sony trying to build a Spider-Man "universe" with just villains, Blade Runners and replicants, The Book Of Henry, American Gods, Fargo, Watchmen on HBO, World War z and MUCH MORE! Plus we try a new "game", we answer email, and generally, try to inform and entertain you for around 2 hours! Let us know if we succeed at that, okay? xoxoxo
This is the DC TV REPORT 2017 season WRAP UP! This is Part 2 because Ed and Bill went a bit too long with guests Stefanie Muniz from the GOTHAM LIGHTS podcast and Sara Netzley, freelance writer for Entertainment Weekly! In this half the group breaks down the 2016/2017 seasons of Flash, Arrow, iZombie! PLUS a look ahead at upcoming shows Preacher Season 2, Krypton, Black Lightning, Titans, Scalped, Watchmen!

Welcome to the DC TV Report for the week ending Saturday June 17th, 2017. As submitted by Edward O'Hare, nickname To Be Determined. It looked like we were just down to iZombie this week until DC decided to post a new episode of Powerless on YouTube with special guest star Adam West. What a great surprise!
Welcome to the Librarium, a new sub-series where we'll take deeper dives into the pop culture things that want to talk about in depth. The first one features Bill and Agent Palmer with a review and breakdown of The Coldest City by Antony Johnston and Sam Hart. We chose this for a few reasons, firstly, it's a graphic novel and we are always looking for great comic stories to recommend, secondly, it's soon to be on screen as the motion picture The Atomic Blonde and it interests us to see how anything is adapted, lastly, it revolves around spies near the "end" the Cold War, right before the Berlin Wall comes down - and that's an amazing setting. We plan to do more entries from The Librarium in the future!
Thanks to Agent Palmer for taking part, check out his spoiler free review of Coldest City here:

In Nerd News: Game of Thrones time, Ghostbusters 3 possibilities and more! We also talk about trailers for First Kill, American Made and Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars! And in the email section we answer a question about what fictional character we'd have rescue us?
