How The CW’s Arrowverse has achieved what the Dceu never could

George Chrysostomou on The CW’s Arrowverse and the Dceu…

It’s no secret that The CW is continuously killing it in terms of faithful and fun adaptations of famous DC characters. Whilst the shows are not everyone’s cup of tea, for those who stick with them it is clear that a lot of effort has gone into building a comprehensive universe that feels both consistently fresh and appropriately fleshed out. The jewel in the crown for these four Arrowverse series – Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supegrirl – is the crossover episodes, which bring all of the TV series characters together in thrilling and suspenseful tales that are both adventurous and character driven. Some have even gone as far to claim that the last crossover episode, Crisis on Earth X, was the better version of the Justice League, relying on the writer’s saviour – the multiverse

Arrow Season 7: Shadowhunters' Katherine McNamara Joins Cast

Arrow Season 7: Shadowhunters' Katherine McNamara Joins Cast
Katherine McNamara is taking aim at her first post-Shadowhunters gig — and it’s a doozy. TVLine has learned exclusively that the actress is joining Arrow in a pivotal recurring role.

According to sources, McNamara will appear during the first half of Season 7 as Maya, a scrappy street fighter and thief from Star City. The initial — and unofficial — casting notice for the character likened the character to “Buffy the Superhero Slayer.”

McNamara’s casting comes roughly three months after Freeform announced that Shadowhunters would conclude after three seasons. The final 12-episode run — aka Season 3B, titled Shadowhunters: The Final Hunt — will

Underworld Director Len Wiseman is Developing an FBI Sci-Fi Series Called Switch

Fox is producing a fascinating new series called Switch. It is being developed by Underworld franchise director Len Wiseman and writer/producer Joby Harold. The series focus on an FBI task force who uses a technology where agents can go undercover inside the body on another person. Here are the details:

Switch asks the question, what if you could quite literally drive the body of another human being? Welcome to the world of Switch – an adrenaline-fueled procedural detailing the exploits of the FBI’s newest undercover unit, the Switch Division, a task force created to allow an agent to go undercover inside the body of another human being.

New Synopsis For The Flash Season 5 Premiere Teases Nora’s Predicament

Having already treated us to a new trailer and promotional poster this month, it looks as though The CW aren’t through spoiling us with goodies pertaining to The Flash‘s fifth season. This time, they deliver with quite the intriguing synopsis hyping the premiere episode, which has been appropriately titled “Nora.”

To be honest, the disclosing of the following description was to be expected, as the network often drops nuggets such as these three weeks ahead of showtime. That said, we should be receiving at least a couple more teasing the next two episodes before the premiere even airs.

Without further delay though, here’s what to expect when the story resumes:

After an unexpected guest from the future, Nora West-Allen (Jessica Parker Kennedy), appears at their home, Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris must figure out how to get her back to the future without disrupting the timeline…even more than she already has.

Best Bets on Broadcast: Fall 2018 Weeknight Breakdown

There was a time when all the best new shows debuted during the fall. 

That's not the case any longer, as networks know the perils of doing business against the greatest love in the United States of America: Football.

There aren't a lot of changes to the upcoming schedule, but we have your best bets for each night of the week whether they are new series, returning shows, or just hits on the move.

Sunday

Sunday nights are always a mess thanks to football. NBC will have Sunday Night Football, and CBS will suffer delays.

If you're in the Us, expect local markets to scrub away the newly installed CW programming to show your local football teams, instead. That won't do a lot for the ratings of your favorite shows and might make it difficult for CW Sundays to get off the ground.

Thankfully, there isn't a lot we at

New Look At The Flash And Xs’ Costumes Revealed

The Flash starts back up again in just a handful of weeks, and the opening episode of season 5 – titled “Nora” – will ring in a lot of changes. Following on from the shock reveal of the season 4 finale, Barry Allen and Iris West will be reeling from the news that their daughter from the future has traveled to the present. And she’s a speedster – who goes by the name of Xs. While this will likely lead to some complicated family dynamics at home, at least this means that the Scarlet Speedster has a new sidekick to help him keep Central City safe.

Going by set photos, there’ll be a lot of the Flash and Xs teaming up and having some quality daddy-daughter time. Xs’s purple and white costume also looks to be a very faithful replication of a similar character – Legion of Super-Heroes member Jenni Ognats, descendant of the West-Allens – from the comics.

First Look At The Flash Season 5 Villain Gridlock Revealed

The Flash season 5 is going to see a major shake-up to the status quo as the Scarlet Speedster and his wife are going to have to come to terms with the fact that Jessica Parker-Kennedy’s mystery girl is actually their daughter, Nora West-Allen, who’s returned from the future.

It's Time to Give Prison Storylines a Life Sentence

What is with the current obsession with prison storylines on TV?

Within the last couple of years, it has been blown entirely out of proportion. Shows across all genres from drama to comedy to procedural jumped on the bandwagon and attempted to offer a new take, but regardless of the "spin" they tried to put on it, it just felt repetitive. 

It all started with HBO's The Night Of which was an incredible miniseries completely deserving of all the awards and acclaim it received. The problem is with all of the shows that came after that tried to replicate its success. 

Criminal Minds Season 12 spent half the season on Reid's time in prison after being framed for murder. Jake and Rosa also went to jail for a crime they didn't commit on Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 5 Episode 1. The Flash framed Barry for murder as well, and Suits sent Mike to prison for an arc,
