Superman: The Animated Series - The Main Man TV review

Today’s Throwback Tuesday takes us back to the animated streets of Metropolis and a hero who can leap buildings in a single bound. The two-part episode “The Main Man” introduces Lobo (Brad Garrett) to the DC Animated Universe. Hired by the Preserver (Sherman Howard) to deliver the last known Kryptonian for his collection, Lobo heads to Earth where he creates a large enough scene to draw the attention of Superman (Tim Daly). Brad Garrett is certainly having fun here providing the voice for the intergalactic bounty hunter originally created by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen. “Part One” is the better of the two episodes, featuring Superman and Lobo going at in the streets of Metropolis and then later in space where Lobo gets the best of Superman and turns him over to the Preserver (only to find himself also caged as the last survivor of his own race).

Danger Man - The Honeymooners television review

Our Throwback Tuesday post takes us back into the Cold War spycraft of Danger Man. John Drake (Patrick McGoohan) is sent to small island nation in the Far East when a couple’s honeymoon getaway ends in murder. With the husband (Ronald Allen) jailed and facing execution, Drake attempts to pry details from the uncooperative bride (Sally Bazely) about the unfortunate night when a local man was shot while mistakenly entering their motel room. Not helping matters is the fact that the husband has become a pawn in the political maneuverings of both the country’s President (Michael Peake) and the Minister of Justice (Lee Montague).

Supergirl - Will The Real Miss Tessmacher Please Stand Up? TV review

The latest episode continues the team-up of Kara (Melissa Benoist) and Lena (Katie McGrath) as the pair head to Kaznia to investigate the evil plans of Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer). Not only will they find multiple versions of Eve (Andrea Brooks), thanks to Lex playing with super-hero powers, but they also uncover Luthor’s big secret in the “Red Daughter.” There are at least three separate moments in “Will The Real Miss Tessmacher Please Stand Up?” where Kara not only could have told Lena her secret but should have. There can be little doubt at this point that Lena will learn the truth from someone other than Kara likely splintering their friendship and pushing her down the super-villain/nemesis road, although for now they appear to be solidly together in the hunt for Lex and the other Supergirl.

iZombie - Thug Death TV review

The final season of iZombie opens with a viral video of a human attacked by zombies that puts the city’s delicate peace in jeopardy. No remains offers no brain for Liv (Rose McIver) to munch on, and Ravi (Rahul Kohli) offers little help while on douchebag brains and having his attention split by both Peyton‘s (Aly Michalka) interview with humans pushing for a pre-empitive attack on zombies and a scientist’s (Quinta Brunson) discovery of a potential cure which would make hundreds of children targets for their brains.

Whiskey Cavalier - Good Will Hunting television review

I never expected Emma’s (Ophelia Lovibond) stint on the show to last all that long, but “Good Will Hunting” surprised me in the finality of her exit. I’m sad to see Lovibond go as I enjoyed Emma and Will (Scott Foley) together. Her death is put to good use here as it propels Will into a more brutal version of himself as the group hunts for his girlfriend’s killer. At first Frankie (Lauren Cohan) loves the new version of her partner, fitting much more with her own outlook on life, right up until the point where she discovers just how much work it is to keep a loose canon from going off and causing all kinds of collateral damage.
