DC TV Report for week ending 4/17/2021

by Lil Eddie O'hare

Welcome to the DC TV Report for the week ending Saturday April 17th, 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 finale.

Sunday 4/11/2021

Batwoman - S02E10 "Time Off for Good Behavior" 1) Ryan and Luke worked to find the connection between a series of attacks on popular youth centers in Gotham. 2) The False Faces attacked Jacob and got him hooked on Snakebite. 3) Julia realized she had huge gaps in her memory as Alice approached her about tracking down Enigma. 4) Ryan visited Angelique in prison and begged her to turn states against Black Mask. Last Minute Reveal: Ryan listened on the phone as Angelique was snatched by the False Faces!

Pennyworth - Season 2 Finale "The Lion and Lamb" 1) Inspector Aziz and the English League were disappointed to learn that the stolen Stormcloud bulb was a fake. 2) Alfred brought his Dad home to Mum and became furious when he figured out his Dad had betrayed them. 3) Thomas and Martha asked Inspector Aziz to marry them. 4) Bet and Peggy waited to attack Col. Salt in his penthouse. Last Minute Reveal: After Gulliver Troy used his Stormcloud powered suit to take out Raven tanks, Alfred led the charge for the English League!

Monday 4/12/2021

Black Lightning - S04E07 "Painkiller" 1) While honeymooning in Akashic Valley, Anissa survived a Painkiller attack and made Khalil work to rescue Grace, who had been captured by a high-tech mind cult. 2) Khalil, who had made a new life for himself working with ASA castoffs, struggled to keep Painkiller from taking over his body and trying to complete his mission to murder the Pierce family. Last Minute Reveal: Big bad Maya showed footage of Khalil to her father Agent O'Dell!

Tuesday 4/13/2021

The Flash - S07E07 "Growing Pains" 1) Team Flash scrambled after Kristen Kramer used an ice-related murder as an excuse to arrest Frost. 2) Speed Force Nora kept popping in on Barry and causing him to burst into random speed spasms. Last Minute Reveal: Barry stopped glitching and Speed Force Nora was almost healed so they could take on the other forces together!

Supergirl - S06E03 "Phantom Menaces" 1) After jumping through a Phantom portal, Zor-El was captured by savages and Kara was rescued by a 5th dimensional Imp Princess. 2) The Tower heroes worked to stop a rogue Phantom Zone Phantom that was running around National CIty infecting people. 3) Alex was reeling from the loss of Kara. 4) Lena found herself in a financial power struggle with Lex. Last Minute Reveal: Kara freed Zor-El and asked Nxly to use her magic to help them find a way out of the Phantom Zone!

 

Ed’s Winner for the Week:  Hanging Finales - Pennyworth ended its second season this week with a finale that was as bonkers as you would expect. We also finally got Black Lightning's backdoor spinoff pilot for Painkiller, which swung for the fences and felt more like an action show that would have been paired with Knight Rider on NBC in the mid 1980s than a CW superhero show. Neither of these series have been picked up yet and I hope they don't end up on Hollywood's massive pile of unanswered cliffhangers.

Superman and Lois - Series Premiere Pilot 1) After Clark Kent was layed off by the Daily Planet, Superman and Lois returned to Smallville for Martha's funeral. 2) The Kent boys, the confident, athletic Jonathan and the troubled, anxious Jordan befriend Lana Lang Cushing's daughter Sarah and had trouble resetting a router. 3) General Lane pulled in Superman to help stop a series of attacks on nuclear power plants.

Ed's Winner for the Week: The World - Superman is back on television and he isn't bursting with angst or insecurity. Even when he isn't sure of himself, his humility and maturity are inspirational. Superman is back and the world needs him now more than ever.

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.
