DC TV Report for week ending 2/13/2021

[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".]

Welcome to the DC TV Report for the week ending Saturday February 13th, 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 episode this week and it was a premiere.

Black Lightning - Season 4 Premiere "The Book of Reconstruction: Chapter One - Collateral Damage" 1) One year after the death of Inspector Henderson, Jefferson's grief made him snap and unleash his powers on 2 aggressive cops. 2) Anissa and Jennifer began busting up drug shipments, frustrating Lala. 3) Tobias Whale resurfaced throwing around millions in commitments to help rebuild Freeland. 4) Lynn used her spare time to test Gravedigger's blood on herself and stopping guys in vans from snatching women. Last Minute Reveal: While flying high above the city, Jennifer's powers blew out and she began free-falling!

Ed's Winner for the Week:
Peter Gambi (James Remar) - For some reason, Gambi is the only main character in the show who isn't visibly suffering from bone-crushing grief. He did his best to cover Jefferson's tracks from the new police chief and he identified the shooter who knocked out Jen, so Jefferson could commit more brutal violence.

DC TV Report for week ending 1/30/2021

 
[Note to readers: Despite the decision to end The DC TV REPORT podcast, it seems that's not going to stop Lil' Eddie 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.

Batwoman S02E02
"Prior Criminal History" 1) After being falsely accused of committing a robbery she helped prevent, Ryan approached Mary and Luke about putting on the cowl again. 2) Sophie and Jacob grilled Luke, Mary and Julia about whether or not they knew Kate was Batwoman. 3) Alice used Mouse's poisoned corpse and a cloud of Bats to lay a trap at a public rally for Batwoman. Last Minute Reveal: Tatiana knocked out Sophie and Alice, intending to bring them to Safiyah!


Ed's Winner for the Week:
Alice (Rachel Skarsten) - This episode was Alice's moment to shine. Kate's death/disappearance has backed her into a corner and Skarsten did a marvelous job portraying her desperation without losing that fiendish smile. This was the character I was most worried about after the casting change and this episode established a unique and engaging arc for her.

(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.
