Legends of Tomorrow - Meet the Legends TV review

Sara (Caity Lotz) returns from Crisis to discover the Legends have become famous and there is a documentary film crew aboard the Wave Rider. “Meet the Legends” makes full use of the crew, often framing scenes through those cameras with the Legends talking directly to the filmmakers. The latest trouble sends the Legends to early 20th Century Russia where Rasputin (Michael Eklund) has risen from the dead (as one of several souls which have escaped Hell). After screwing up several times, the team finally manages to defeat Rasputin thanks in large part (pun intended) to Ray (Brandon Routh) and his new catchphrase. The conclusion of the episode, removing the crew’s celebrity, feels far too easy (although quite funny). I hope to see someone from that audience, perhaps a small group of firm believers, not taking the denouncement at face value and continuing to believe in the time traveling heroes opening up a storyline down the line.

Wonder Woman #750

Wonder Woman #750 comic reviewAs DC Comics have done for recent #1000 issue milestone issues of Action Comics and Detective Comics, Wonder Woman earns an over-sized issue featuring multiple stories from a who’s who of writers and artists (along with some art and an insane assortment of variant covers thrown in). While there isn’t one stand-out story here, it’s a solid collection of tales touching on different aspects of who Wonder Woman is.

The story that earns the most pages is the “Wild Hunt” conclusion of Diana’s battle with Cheetah featuring Wonder Woman besting her rival and reclaiming that which she has lost including the lasso and her bracelets.

A Nero Wolfe Mystery - Death of a Doxy television review

Throwback Thursday takes us back to mid 20th Century New York and the private detective offices located at 454 W. 35th Street. While the two-part Second Season premiere is still a passable episode, “Death of a Doxy” certainly wouldn’t rank among my favorites. The story feels a bit forced in order to be a “big” episode, with everyone (in front and behind the camera) trying a bit too hard, and the murder plot itself feels like it could have been truncated to a single episode without loosing much. The episode centers around Orrie Cather (Trent McMullen) being charged with the murder of a woman he was seeing on the side. While attempting to do Orrie a favor, Archie (Timothy Hutton) stumbles upon the body. That, plus circumstantial evidence, has even those within the brownstone questioning Orrie’s innocence.

Arrow - Green Arrow & The Canaries television review

“Green Arrow & The Canaries” is an oddly constructed episode set 20 years after the events of Crisis. Following Oliver Queen‘s (Stephen Amell) sacrifice, Star City has lived in blissful peace for two decades, with Mia (Katherine McNamara) and William (Ben Lewis) growing up together in rich luxury. All that is threatened when evil starts to stir again with the kidnapping of Helena’s daughter (Raigan Harris) whose death could be the domino to lead Star City back down the dark future seen in previous episodes (although given the number of baddies the new Deathstroke, and the not-so-hard-to-guess woman behind him put together, it looks like future version of Star City has plenty of killers and malcontents to deal with).
