Star Wars is dying. It’s an unfortunate truth but the truth nonetheless. The current trilogy that is coming to an end this Christmas is a relief more in the fact that it is ending than we get to see the new film at last. Another truth, however, is that the universe in which Star Wars

So, since CW’s Arrowverse started up again about 6 weeks ago, I have been writing reviews for Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, and Arrow. The problem with writing reviews for each episode is that not all are great, and not all are terrible. Most are average and there isn’t much to talk about in them. Because
SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 3/5 This was essentially a backstory episode, and as much as I enjoyed it, I’m not sure why we needed it. I liked how it explained Lena’s extreme reaction to Supergirl’s betrayal, but beyond that everything could have been explained through present-day dialogue. My point is, this episode felt like a
SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 3/5 This wasn’t a bad episode. It was essentially a filler episode that gave some clues for the future of the season (the near future, that is). It was Cisco’s episode and he shone, he really did. The character is so close to many of our hearts so watching him best
SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 4/5 Arrow keeps going strong. The meeting of the future and present heroes of the show has had us all waiting impatiently for this past week, and the episode did not disappoint. The episode did a great job of balancing the emotional turmoil of the characters – when certain things were
SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 4/5 This has been a strong start for the arrowverse this week. First Supergirl, and now Batwoman, have released their best episodes of the season. Alice’s backstory was more interested than I could have hoped for. It’s creepy, disturbing, and makes for a brilliant explanation for how messed up Beth/Alice is.
SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 4/5 I really enjoyed this episode! It’s nice to be rewarded, as a viewer, with some reveals. When there are a lot of questions, it can become tiring when none of them are answered. Lena’s storyline, as always, is the one that had me the most interested. Now that she can
SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 2/5 This episode was a struggle to watch. There was nothing to keep me interested. The only redeeming quality of this episode was Garth, and even his story got a little boring. Grayson’s chat with Jericho’s mum and then Deathstroke was okay but this was a 40 min episode! Something is
SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 4/5 This was a great episode. A lot happened so I will try to be brief! Firstly, Cisco’s struggle is the focal point of most of the episode. He is worried for his friend and wants to save him. It’s brilliantly done and also ties into the Bloodwork storyline too which
My Rating: 4/5 SPOILERS AHEAD Arrow is still going strong! Arrow hasn’t been this good since season 2. It was nice to see Speedy and a few other familiar faces. The mystery surrounding The Monitor just got kicked up to 11. Is he really the Anti-Monitor? That’s my favourite theory so far – what do
SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 3/5 Finally, we had an episode where things moved forwards. Batwoman began the episode as someone not trusted by the public, and she ended the episode saving a group of people and becoming more popular. It’s a big change from previous episodes. I feel like the show is finally moving in
POSSIBLE SPOILERS My Rating: 3/5 The ending of this episode bumped the rating from 2 to 3. All the way through the episode I was bored of Alex worrying, bored of Brainy milling about, and bored of the cloud of threat that hung over everyone. There was very little in the way of growth for
My Rating: 3/5 SPOILERS AHEAD Once again, the flashback episode was better than the present-day episodes. Jericho was a great episode. There were so many different sides to each character. I was a little surprised that Grayson wasn’t being literal when he said he killed Jericho, considering the dark turn of the show, but it
My Rating: 3.5/5 SPOILERS AHEAD This was a nice, character-driven episode. Killer Frost stood out as she grieved for the future of a new life she feared she would no longer get to have. It was great to see her confront this and her small arc came to a satisfying conclusion. Ralf is just great!
My Rating: 4/5 Another great episode from Arrow! SPOILERS AHEAD Let’s start with the flash-forward scenes: This is very character driven, unlike the Crisis-based scenes. It’s good to have that balance and the writing is great. I’m looking forward to the episode dedicated to just these new characters – it’ll be good to see them
