Supergirl – ‘Confidence Women’ – Season 5, Episode 6: TV Review

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

The Flash – ‘Kiss Kiss Breach Breach’ – Season 6, Episode 5: TV Review

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

Arrow – ‘Present Tense’ – Season 8, Episode 4: TV Review

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

Batwoman – ‘Mine is a Long Sad Tale’ – Season 1, Episode 5: TV Review

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.

Supergirl – ‘Dangerous Liaisons’ – Season 5, Episode 5: TV Review

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

The Flash – ‘There Will Be Blood’ – Season 6, Episode 4: TV Review

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

Arrow – ‘Leap of Faith’ – Season 8, Episode 3: TV Review

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

Batwoman – ‘Who Are You?’ – Season 1, Episode 4: TV Review

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

Supergirl – ‘In Plain Sight’ – Season 5, Episode 4: TV Review

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

The Flash – ‘Dead Man Running’ – Season 6, Episode 3: TV Review

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!

The Flash – ‘A Flash of the Lightning’ – Season 6, Episode 2: TV Review

SPOILERS AHEAD Rating: 3/5 Not a bad episode at all, but this wasn’t a Flash episode, it was Crisis episode. As I stated in my Arrow, Season 8, Episode 1 review, I am worried that Crisis is taking over the plots of the stories. I understand that this is a huge, epic story and it’s

Arrow – ‘Starling City’ – Season 8, Episode 1

SPOILER FREE REVIEW My Rating: 5/5 It is rare that an episode of TV deserves a 5/5 rating, but Arrow earned it! This episode was the best thing Arrow has done since season 2! It was nostalgia-filled, back to the origins of the show. What a relief! Everything in this episode fit. It was a

Batwoman – ‘The Rabbit Hole’ – Season 1, Episode 2: TV Review

Rating: 3/5 This wasn’t terrible but I was hoping for more. The first episode of the season was a great introduction to the main characters, the setting, and the general feel of the show – just what the first episode should be. This second episode though… Okay, I know that this is a TV show

Supergirl – ‘Stranger Beside Me’ – Season 5, Episode 2: TV Review

My Rating: 3/5 Not a bad episode, but still has a long way to go before it’s good. They really are pushing the anti-tech storyline (with the woman on her phone being the cause of a possible crash) which I can’t say I don’t personally agree with, but it’s still quite on the nose. Supergirl
