DC TV Report for week ending 6/12/2021

-        Li’l Eddie O’Hare


Welcome to the DC TV Report for the week ending Saturday June 12th, 2021. I'm here to bring you recaps, news and commentary for all live-action television shows based on DC Comics. There were 4 new episodes this week.


Sunday - 6/6/2021

DC's Legends of Tomorrow – S06E05 "The Satanist's Apprentice" 1) Astra was having a really hard time adjusting to life in the real world and turned to a painting of Aleister Crowley for a magical solution. 2) A megalomaniac trapped Sara and tried convincing her to help him kidnap and mutate all of humanity. Last Minute Reveal: Bishop congratulated Sara on surviving the simulation and told her they were inseparable!

Batwoman - S02E15 "Armed and Dangerous" 1) While lying unconscious in his hospital bed Luke had a vision of Bruce Wayne giving him the choice to survive or join his Dad in the afterlife. 2) Mary and Ryan raced to heal Luke and prove Agent Tavaroff and his Crow lackeys were framing Luke. 3) Alice was upset with Ocean for killing Evelyn Rhyme and found evidence that Roman Sionis had a curious obsession with the Kane family. Last Minute Reveal: Alice asked Jacob to help her rescue Kate from Black Mask!

Tuesday - 6/8/2021

The Flash – S07E12 "Good-Bye Vibrations" 1) Cisco and Kamilla announced that they were leaving Central City and were kind of bummed out that the team wasn't getting all sentimental and sappy. 2) Rainbow Raider 2.0 used her euphoria-inducing powers to rob a bank and try to play a dangerous game of Robin Hood. Last Minute Reveal: Cecille got home, heard a spooky voiceand saw that her reflection in the mirror was wearing a golden mask!

Superman and Lois - S01E09 "Loyal Subjekts" 1) Lois brought in Clark to help with her investigation into Morgan Edge and leaned on Lana to help uncover the "process" Edge was putting his new recruits through. 2) Superman had to ice bullet bruises after stopping a bank robbery and figured out that the Kryptonite gas he was exposed to at General Lane's facility was having lingering effects. 3) Jordan was excited to help Sarah at the talent show but had to bail after a Kryptonite virus he caught from his Dad made him start sneezing icicles. Last Minute Reveal: Morgan Edge revealed himself to be a true Kryptonian and called Superman his brother!


Ed’s Winner for the Week:  Disneyfied Legends - Sara Netzley would not forgive me if I did not recognize the segment on Legends of Tomorrow where Aleister Crowley transformed the House of Secrets into an animated musical in the style of Beauty and the Beast. Astra's inability to stop singing was only topped by seeing the other Legends as talking household objects. God, I love that crazy show.

DC TV Report for Sweet Tooth Season 1

 -        Li’l Eddie O’Hare

 

Welcome to the DC TV Report. I'm here to bring you recaps, news and commentary for season 1 of Sweet Tooth. There were 8 new episodes this week and I binged them as fast as I could.


Friday - 6/4/2021

Sweet Tooth - Series Premiere "Out of the Deep Woods" 1) At the same time a wretched virus made its way across the world and sent civilization back to the dark ages, human animal hybrid babies began being born. 2) A scared but resourceful Father escaped into the woods and raised his half-deer son Gus for nine years, completely removed from the crumbling world out there. Last Minute Reveal: Gus broke all of his Father's rules, and cried from a mountaintop, asking the Big Man to take him to Colorado!

Sweet Tooth - S01E02 "Sorry About All the Dead People" 1) Aimee waited out the world crisis in her therapy office for weeks before walking outside to live a comfortable life in an abandoned zoo. 2) The Big Man could not get rid of little Gus and the paired ended up turning to a family living in an old visitor center for food and a night's shelter. 3) Anditya Singh went to get meds for his wife and was given a tough assignment. Last Minute Reveal: Aimee found a yellow crate with a hybrid pig baby in it!

Sweet Tooth - S01E03 "Weird Deer S**t" 1) Bear stopped playing her VR game and led her gang of teenage rebels out of an amusement park to respond to an alarm. 2) The Big Man tried to disguise Gus so he could take him to an open market and put him on a train. 3) Dr. Singh struggled to hold to his principles as he took over the clinic and was scared to take Rani to a Survivor's Day party. Last Minute Reveal: Gen. Abbot ordered his troops to start packing and eyed a flyer for the Preserve!

Sweet Tooth - S01E04 "Secret Sauce" 1) Bear brought Gus to her arcade sanctum and became conflicted over whether she should execute Jep. 2) Aimee holed up in the zoo and did not respond to people's radio calls for help in an effort to protect Wendy from the Last Men. 3) Dr. Singh faced the hard truth that he needed to experiment on a hybrid as nosy Nancy came snooping around, suspicious that Rani was sick. Last Minute Reveal: After Nancy got kicked to death by a horse, Anditya and Rani dragged her body inside their house!

Sweet Tooth - S01E05 "What's in the Freezer?" 1) Gen. Abbot confronted Dr. Bell about giving up on her research. 2) Jep and Bear constantly bickered as they led Gus to the Valley of Sorrows. 3) Aimee tried to cheer up Wendy before learning that the Preserve had been discovered. 4) Anditya was nervous trying to hide Nancy's body from his neighbors. Last Minute Reveal: Last Men busted in and rescued Anditya and Rani from being burned alive and General Abbot complimented them on their home!

Sweet Tooth - Season 1 Penultimate "When Pubba Met Birdie" 1) 10 years ago, a janitor named Richard met a medical researcher named Birdie. 2) In the present, Gus, Jep and Bear finally reached the house they were looking for and learned the truth about where Gus came from.

Sweet Tooth - Season 1 Finale "Big Man" 1) 10 years ago, Jep pushed his pregnant wife past armed guards to get to the maternity ward at a hospital. 2) In the present, Jep left Bear behind at Judy's house to go after Gus in the woods. 3) Aimee was too late to stop Wendy and the Preserve kids from getting captured by the Last Men. 4) General Abbot turned the zoo into a research lab for Anditya and locked Rani away behind a one way mirror. Last Minute Reveal: In Alaska, Birdie ran inside and answered Bear's satellite phone call!


Ed’s Winner for the Season:  Timing - I read the first few volumes of the Sweet Tooth comic series several years ago. So I was familiar with this story. However, the timing of the premiere of this series makes the story feel exponentially more poignant and prescient. The allegory is a glowing example of the power of science fiction storytelling. Creators Jim Mickle and Beth Schwartz adapted Jeff Lemire's vision beautifully and delivered a series the world really needs right now.

DC TV Report for week ending 6/5/2021

-        Li’l Eddie O’Hare

 

Welcome to the DC TV Report for the week ending Saturday June 5th, 2021. 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. Sweet Tooth season 1 will be covered in a separate post later this week.


Tuesday - 6/1/2021

Superman and Lois - S01E08 "Holding the Wrench" 1) Lois decided to see a psychiatrist after past trauma made her lose her temper. 2) Clark and General Lane interrogated the captured John Henry Irons. 3) Sarah was encouraged to get over her anxiety and audition for a musical. 4) Kyle found out Lana told Morgan Edge not to hire him. Last Minute Reveal: Free to go, Irons deactivated his AI, pulled out of the Kent farm and decided to drive for a while!

 

Ed’s Winner for the Week:  Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch) - Lois really got put through the ringer this week. She found out the stranger was married to another version of her in a different dimension, had to relive the trauma of her miscarriage and confirmed suspicions that her Dad is developing weapons that could kill her husband. Through it all she pulled it together, was not afraid to reach out for help and talked down a terrorist. Letting John Henry Irons drive away free may have been a questionable choice, but for now let's call it a big win for everyone's favorite reporter this week. P.S. It was scary how much Lois reminded me of my Mom when she screamed at Jonathan. Just saying... Ah, memories...

DC TV Report for Lucifer Season 5B

-        Li’l Eddie O’Hare

 

Welcome to the DC TV Report. I'm here to bring you recaps, news and commentary for the back half of season 5 of Lucifer. There were 8 new episodes this week and I binged them as fast as I could.


Friday - 5/28/2021

Lucifer - Midseason 5 Premiere "Family Dinner" 1) Dad decided to try and resolve all of Lucifer, Michael and Amenadiel's problems with each other over a family dinner. 2) Maze asked Dad for a soul. 3) Amy wanted to switch places with baby Charlie so his son could avoid a life of human suffering. 4) Dan and Ella were still in shock, coping with the revelations from season 5A. 5) Chloe and Lucifer investigated the incineration of an estranged brother on his family's mini-golf course. Last Minute Reveal: Lucy told Chloe he is incapable of loving her because he is his father's son!

Lucifer - S05E10 "Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam" 1) Everyone felt compelled to burst into song and dance whenever Dad was around. 2) Chloe and Lucy had a hard road narrowing down the suspects in the poisoning of a high school football referee. 3) Dr. Linda was frustrated after learning Amenadiel was bummed out that Charlie was human. Last Minute Reveal: Dad confessed that he thinks he is losing his powers!

Lucifer - S05E11 "Resting Devil Face" 1) Dad made himself human to try and get closer with Lucifer. 2) Chloe and Lucy worked to solve the murder of a downtrodden boxing champ who overdosed on a designer drug. 3) Chloe was worried after Trixie lashed out at school. 4) Dan was all shook up that he was probably going to Hell for boning Dad's wife. Last Minute Reveal: Dad told Lucy and Amy it might be time to retire and vanished!

Lucifer - S05E12 "Daniel Espinoza: Naked and Afraid" 1) Lucifer was miffed that Dan was stuck in his own head and refused to trade insults. 2) Dan took a grunt assignment and wound up getting drawn into a drug war between a dirty ex-partner and the Russian mob. Last Minute Reveal: Dan thanked Lucy for the prank and Lucy admitted it was just payback!

Lucifer - S05E13 "A Little Harmless Stalking" 1) Dr. Linda injected herself into one of Chloe and Lucifer's cases after the daughter she gave up for adoption became the prime suspect. 2) Lucy and Chloe decided to throw caution to the wind and make a go at a relationship. 3) Eve showed up and begged Maze to tag along on her bounty hunting. 4) After Lucy suggested Amenadiel would be God's natural successor, Amy started to warm up to the idea. Last Minute Reveal: Lucifer changed his mind and decided he wanted to be God!

Lucifer - S05E14 "Nothing Lasts Forever" 1) Lucifer was distracted trying to figure out retirement plans for Dad in hopes to be named his successor. 2) Chloe and Lucy looked into the murder of an aquarium manager who may have been selling rare fish to high-end restaurants. 3) Maze became sick realizing her hellscape would be reliving her rejection of Eve for eternity. 4) Ella became depressed, believing she had an unhealthy obsession with murder. Last Minute Reveal: Gabriel brought MIchael Azrael's blade to help his hostile takeover!

Lucifer - Season 5 Penultimate "Is This Really How It's Going To End?!" 1) Chloe announced her retirement as Lucifer campaigned for his siblings to support him over Michael to replace God. 2) Chloe and Lucy's investigation into the murder of a wine connoisseur and thieving con man turned up some divine connections. 3) Dan tried setting Ella up on a blind date. Last Minute Reveal: In the wake of Dan's death, Lucifer became determined to go to war for the throne!

Lucifer - Season 5 Finale "A Chance At a Happy Ending" 1) Everyone took Dan's death hard and tried to live in the moment. 2) Everything culminated in a showdown between Lucy and Michael at the LA Coliseum for control of the Silver City. Last Minute Reveal: Everyone kneeled to Lucifer, who held the flaming sword and realized he was now the big man in charge!


Ed’s Winner for the Week:  Dan "Detective Douche" Espinoza (Kevin Alejandro) - Dan really got put through the ringer this season. He started out looking over his shoulder after realizing God was in town and knew Dan had slept with his wife. Then he found himself victim to Lucifer's hysterically expensive and elaborate practical joke. Finally, he ended up making the ultimate sacrifice and became the catalyst for the showdown that was originally intended to be the end of the series. Through it all he never lost his resolve or stopped being a consummate friend. It is hard to think of another character in any show I have covered over the past year who has better fit the definition of an MVP. Let's hope he is able to find peace in the afterlife. Season 6 will not be the same without him.

Ed’s Winner for the Week:  The Man We Thought Was Captain Luthor (WolĂ© Parks) - What a Holy Shit Moment! The writers at Superman and Lois pulled off an amazing character reveal that added another dimension to a show that already become hands down the best DC show of the season. It is so nice to see one of the favorite characters of my childhood finally debut in the Arrowverse. Here is hoping he can finally get out of Shaquille O'Neal's shadow.

DC TV Report for week ending 5/22/2021

 -        Li’l Eddie O’Hare

 

Welcome to the DC TV Report for the week ending Saturday May 22nd, 2021. I'm here to bring you recaps, news and commentary for all live-action television shows based on DC Comics. There were 5 new episodes this week including one premiere and one penultimate episode.



Sunday - 5/16/2021

DC's Legends of Tomorrow - S06E03 "The Ex-Factor" 1) In 2045, Zari entered a singing competition show hosted by her s'more headed ex-boyfriend to both vanquish a warrior alien and boost her flailing business interests. 2) Mick was upset the team wasn't wandering space looking for Sara. 3) An injured Sara had to rely on Gary to protect her. Last Minute Reveal: Sarah limped into a fancy house and a man she couldn't see with her blurry vision called her by name and told her he had been waiting for her!

Batwoman - S02E14 "And Justice for All" 1) A new strain of snakebite caused users to become rabid cannibals. 2) Ryan, Luke and Sophie found themselves in jail because Gotham cops be racist. 3) Alice tip-toed away from Black Mask and tied up Dr. Rhyme, insisting she reverse her brainwashing of Kate. Last Minute Reveal: Luke tried stopping a car thief and got gunned down by Agent Tavaroff!

Monday - 5/17/2021

Black Lightning - Series Penultimate "The Book of Resurrection Chapter One: Crossroads" 1) Jefferson prepared to confront Tobias and told JJ that Freeland needs Lightning. 2) Lauren and Lynn joined forces to locate the Nullifier and assisted Anissa and Grace with quashing Tobias's meta-gene scam. 3) Khalil's drive to turn in Looker was interrupted by Ishmael. Last Minute Reveal: Tobias sent a picture of Jefferson to JJ and told her that her father was dead!

Tuesday - 5/18/2021

The Flash - S07E10 "Family Matters, Part 1" 1) Barry tried training Alexa to control Fuerza and may have pushed her too far. 2) Barry and Iris tracked Psych aka Bashir Malik after he began attacking his snoody college buddies. 3) Kamilla started looking for jobs in Miami causing life to get real for Cisco. 4) Joe became furious when it became clear that Agent Kramer was not giving up her misguided quest to extinguish all metas. Last Minute Reveal: Deon and Nora showed up, stilled Barry and leeched life force away from Alexa, Bashir and Iris!

Superman and Lois - Midseason 1 Premiere "Broken Trust" 1) Jordan's friend Tag evaded Superman and General Lane and went to Sarah for help proving Jordan was the cause of his newfound and unstable powers. 2) Lois found herself working with Marcus aka Captain Luthor to investigate Morgan Edge, who had just given Lana a huge promotion. 3) Jordan begged Jonathan not to tell Clark about his super migraines because he wanted to play football against Metropolis High. Last Minute Reveal: Jordan began having an intense siezure and Clark raced to fly him to the Fortress!

 

Ed’s Winner for the Week:  Family - Vin Diesel would be proud this week. Each episode had strong themes centered around family. On Legends, Constantine got all in a tizzy after Zari told her Mom their relationship wasn't serious. Batwoman saw Alice fighting to figure out how to reverse brainwash her sister and Jacob discovering that mourning his 2 lost daughters was leaving Mary in the lurch. Jefferson may have made the ultimate sacrifice for his family on Black Lightning. Barry and Iris kept talking about the elemental forces as if they were their kids on The Flash. Finally, Superman and Lois returned this week and Jordan learned how skirting responsibility can hurt his family, literally.

Ed’s Winner for the Week:  Stephanie Brown (Morgan Kohan) - This is the first time this season that a lesser known but really cool comics character has made their debut in an Arrowverse show. She is about 10 years older here than in the books but her origin was portrayed very faithfully. I can't wait to see if she and Luke become an item and whether or not we will see her in costume as Spoiler before the end of this season.
