‘Supergirl: The Complete Second Season’ Blu-ray Review

29 August 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

To many, Supergirl is an important superhero show. Not only is it a successful example of a DC show, but it also flies the flag for female superheroes. With the release of Supergirl: The Complete Second Season, things are bigger and on an even greater scale, but does that make it a success?

With Kara (Melissa Benoist) striving to make herself as successful journalist at Catco Worldwide Media, she also has to do the same as Supergirl. Working with her adoptive sister Alex (Chyler Leigh) and Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), the Martian Manhunter at the Deo, the stakes have never been higher. Thankfully, she has friends and family (including Superman) to help her save the day.

There are a lot of important things that happen in this season, which feel ground-breaking for the show. This includes the “coming out” of Kara’s sister Alex. This is important because of the way it is handled, »

Review: Supergirl: The Complete Second Season

23 August 2017 1:08 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The biggest problem with the DC Comics series on the CW is that they are overstuffed, robbing the title character of the spotlight and forcing them to work as part of a team. The formula can be repetitive and stifling, demanding that the star rise above the noise to get noticed.

As Supergirl moved from CBS where it was a well-reviewed, low-rated buzz series, to the CW, changes had to be made. Calista Flockhart chose not to join the team in Canada so Cat Grant, one of the more interesting members of the cast, was gone but the crappy looking Deo set got a major upgrade.

With Supergirl: The Complete Second Season now available from Warner Home Entertainment, we’re given a chance to evaluate how the sophomore outing went. They certainly aimed high, opening with the inevitable arrival of Supergirl (Melissa Benoist)’s cousin, Superman (Tyler Hoechlin). Of course, »

Xena Reboot Not Going Forward at NBC

21 August 2017 3:17 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Xena’s battle cry has fallen silent for now: NBC is not moving forward with its planned reboot of Xena: Warrior Princess.

NBC entertainment president Jennifer Salke confirmed the reboot’s demise to The Hollywood Reporter: “Nothing is happening on that right now. We looked at some material; we decided at that point that it didn’t warrant the reboot… I’d never say never on that one because it’s such a beloved title, but the current incarnation of it is dead.”

The Xena reboot had Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Lost, The 100) on board to write the pilot and serve as producer, »

‘Boone: The Bounty Hunter’ Review

2 August 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: John Hennigan, Osric Chau, Kevin Sorbo, Spencer Grammar, Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson, Jonathan Lipnicki, Dominque Swain, Lorenzo Lamas, Richard Tyson, Jane Park Smith | Written by John Hennigan, Josh Burnell, Franco Movsesian, Jonathan Perkins | Directed by Robert Kirbyson

Boone, a fame-seeking reality show Bounty Hunter (think a douchier version of TV’s Dog the Bounty Hunter) gets carried away in his role and tries to bring down a drug lord and his empire. But when his quest for accolades ends with a bounty on his own head, Boone learns that serving justice is a heck of a lot more dangerous than just ratings.

Apparently conceived by star John Hennigan some five years ago, Boone: The Bounty Hunter has been a labour of love for the wrestler and actor ever since, with Hennigan eventually funding the film himself – no doubt through the money he earned wresting for the likes of Lucha Underground »

Kevin Sorbo’s wife and co-star Sam Sorbo conceptualized and co-wrote “Let There Be Light” with Dan Gordon (“Highway to Heaven”). The three produced the movie.

“Liberal Hollywood has increasingly moved the bar, making simple and honest films with solid faith and family values harder to find,” said Hannity. “I felt compelled to start bringing quality films to the millions of forgotten Americans who want to see more of these heart-warming and »

Odette Annable Joins CW’s ‘Supergirl’ Season 3 as New Big Bad

31 May 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Supergirl” has set the next big bad for Season 3: Reign.

The DC Comics character will be played on the CW series by Odette Annable, Variety has learned.

Reign will be the villain of the third season, as part of an interpretation of the infamous World Killer storyline from the pages of DC Comics. Though the character is based on the comics, the costume for Annable’s TV character will be different from the DC version.

Reign — who first appeared in the New 52 reboot of DC Comics’ “Supergirl” series — is a Worldkiller akin to Doomsday, the famous Superman villain who killed the Man of Steel in 1992. She was taken as an infant by Kryptonian scientists who bestowed her new abilities. In the comics, Reign becomes an enemy of Supergirl when she arrives on Earth with the plan to conquer it. The character in the comics was created by Michael Green and Mahmud Asrar.

The Mon-El arc comes to a climax in Distant Sun, a family drama with one of Supergirl's scariest villains yet...

This review contains spoilers.

2.17 Distant Sun

Supergirl season two has played the long game with the Mon-El arc and, in Distant Sun, it came to a head. When Queen Rhea, Mon-El's mother, puts a bounty on Kara's head, it makes Mon-El choose: return home or let Kara continue to live with constant attacks on her life. Or at least that's the false dichotomy Rhea gives her son, hoping he doesn't notice that there are other options — they're just much messier. Little does she know, Kara has spent the last several months teaching Mon-El what it looks like to eschew the paths of least resistance and fight for something better, even and perhaps especially when it isn't easy.

Supergirl Round Table: Treble in Paradise

23 March 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Mon-El's secret came out on Supergirl Season 2 Episode 16, causing Kara to break up with him over his deceit. 

Luckily, the breakup didn't last long, and all it took was a musical crossover on The Flash Season 3 Episode 17  to get KaraMel back together!

Below, TV Fanatics Steven Ford, Christine Orlando, Kathleen Wiedel, Yana Grebenyuk, and Jim Garner talk the (short-lived) break up, Winn's legal trouble, and what they loved about the crossover. 

Are you on Team Kara or Team Mon-El in this breakup?

Steve: I need to side with Mon-El here. Yes, he should have told Kara the truth, but it's not his fault he is a Daxam prince. He does not want to be the "face" of their race's future, all he cares about is Kara and moving forward with her. She'll come around.

Supergirl Review: Season 2 Episode 16 Star-Crossed

21 March 2017 5:36 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Well, just as I predicted, in last night's Supergirl episode we find out that Supergirl is already pregnant thanks to Mon-El, and that Superbabies are indeed on the way! Or at least that would have been a much better story than what we got. Instead, this episode was split between two different stories and one of them was as predictable as rain in April.

The first storyline in Supergirl involves poor Winn and his new alien girlfriend Lyra, as she has been playing him the entire time (shocker) and used him to break into a museum to steal the Van Gogh Starry Night painting. Apparently, she has the same, and only, superpower that Mr. Terrific has in the comics and is invisible to technology. In fact, Batman used him to bring down his own creation; Brother Eye.

Hi everybody! Jim from Legends Of Tomorrow reviews here, filling in on what is probably the second best DC TV show. Everything Legends does, Supergirl does too, but where Legends keeps things light and fluffy, Supergirl adds in some soapiness and some real world parallels, sometimes to its detriment. Ultimately, Star-Crossed was excellent, only kept from perfection by being a touch on the nose.

Supergirl Season 2 Episode 16 Review: Star-Crossed

20 March 2017 7:10 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Does Mon-El deserve a second chance? 

His secret is finally out in the open, and he chose to stay on Earth at the end of Supergirl Season 2 Episode 16 rather than return home with his parents.

So, where do they go from here?

First they will have to get through the musical crossover with The Flash, but assuming everything is not all fine and dandy by the end of it, it begs the question of what Mon-El is going to do now.

He's really only involved with the Deo because of Kara, and she's probably not going to be asking for his help any time soon. Are we in for several weeks of watching him beg and grovel? 

Ugh, please no. Nobody wants that. 

Mon-El has made a crazy amount of mistakes, but it's pretty clear he really does want to be a better man. 

Does that mean Kara should forgive him? »
