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

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

Titans – ‘Atonement’ – Season 2, Episode 9: TV Review

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

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

Titans – ‘Jericho’ – Season 2, Episode 8: TV Review

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

Arrow – ‘Welcome to Hong Kong’ – Season 8, Episode 2: TV Review

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

Supergirl – ‘Blurred Lines’ – Season 5, Episode 3: TV Review

SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 3/5 This was a decent episode! Samwise is always welcome on my screen (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m ashamed of you). J’onn’s storyline finally makes sense! I hate how, because CW demands over 20 episodes of a show that could be done better in at least 13,

Batwoman – ‘Down Down Down’ – Season 1, Episode 3: TV Review

SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 3.5/5 This show is finally going somewhere! I still feel that there must be a tiny budget for this show – CW are stretching themselves too thin right now – but despite that, the small snippets of gotham and the action scenes are pretty good. This was the first episode with

Titans – ‘Bruce Wayne’ – Season 2, Episode 7: TV Review

SPOILERS My Rating: 3/5 It’s a shame that the reveal at the end was so obvious throughout the episode, because it is a great spin on the story and Dick’s character. So many questions about why he’s so uptight and quick to anger with the other Titans have been answered. Jason’s struggle was interesting to

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
