Legends of Tomorrow: Hawkgirl and Hawkman

God, I love September! TV shows about to start and all this info surfacing… *bliss*… The CW has released the first picture of Hawkman and Hawkgirl from the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow, Falk Hentschel plays Carter Hall/Hawkman and Ciara Renée is Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl.

   

I really like the suits, and I can’t wait to see the wings. It’s definitely better that the costume Carter Hall used in Smallville.

Like their DC Comics counterparts, in the series Hawkman and Hawkgirl are the reincarnation of a pair of devoted lovers originally from Ancient Egypt. Fated to be born again and again in different eras, they two always find each other and generally end up fighting for their current era’s version of truth, justice and the [Appropriate nation-state] way. (Worth noting however that the Legends version of Hawkgirl combines two versions of the character.) The characters will debut on this season’s Arrow/The Flash crossover episode before returning as series regulars on Legends. – Deadline

On a different note, a second teaser was released for the Arrow, and it’s so funny and romantic… take a look.

Arrow, Flash and Supernatural Sneak Peak

The CW has been releasing some sneak peaks for the upcoming season, so I give the Arrow, The Flash and Supernatural trailers for season 2, 4 and 11 respectively.

cw_arrow_flash_spn

First Arrow, it’s been out for a while, so there’s not much to say, right? This season already looks a bit lighter and I like that. I especially like to see Thea a bit on the cray-cray side, Nyssa fighting Malcom, Nyssa (just Nyssa, I like her – is it too wrong to ship her with Laurel?!), everyone keeping busy while Oliver is away, … And Felicity and Curtis Holt! How cute 😀

The Flash is going to be insane! Parallel worlds?! WOW!!! I can’t wait for it! 😀 😀 😀 And Lisa is back, and I wish she doesn’t leave… I like Cisco around her 😉 .

Supernatural looks creepier than usual, and scarier… what the hell is going on with people? Why are Sam’s eyes pried open like that? Why is Crowley dressed as a priest? Why is Castiel beating him up? I need some answers!

Arrow: Diggle Suits Up

Finally, after 3 seasons, Diggle is finally getting his own suit… granted, it’s a bicker jacket and a helmet, but I bet there’s more to it 😀 ! Also, that helmet looks like something Magneto would wear…

Also, a new poster for the show has come out, and it features the Arrow’s new green suit… What do you think?

Arrow will now be Green!

This promo picture from Arrow was released a few days ago – but I had totally forgot about it until today. It shows Oliver’s new get-up! 😀 It’s greener! We’re slowly getting to the Green Arrow we all know.

Arrow Season 3 finale (and some other thoughts)

So, I know I’m a bit late with this… the season finale was already a while ago – and I had Arrow up to date – but I’ve been mulling over about what to say about it.

Arrow-Season-3-Wallpaper

  • First off, it’s not exactly news about now, but this 3rd season was definitely not up to par with the previous ones. After giving it a bit of thought I figured out some stuff that did not work for me, which not to say that I didn’t enjoy this season – I did – but not as much, and here’s why: too much Olicity angst!
  • I feel I should clarify that I’m a totally Olicity fan, I ship those 2 hard! But the episodes were way too much about them, whether together or apart, and it just didn’t work. Stephen and Emily have amazingly undeniable chemistry, so it’s always fun to watch them together… however it’s not great fun that they kept angsting about not being together for most of the season. After Oliver’s decision on the first episode, I wished that they had talked about it – while obviously still loving each other – but not actively mentioning the problem at almost every single episode. It got tiring.
  • Other things that’s been largely talked about was the Hong Kong flashbacks. Here, I have to be honest, I liked the storyline. I wished it had taken less time, because the story was not that complex, but still I liked it, mostly because it introduced my favorite character from this season: Tatsu! I really liked Tatsu and Maseo, and I cried hard when she killed him… oh, the tears! I wished their story had ended differently, but I’m kind of glad that it didn’t. I also enjoyed immensely when Tatsu joined “Team Arrow” in Nanda Parbat and I wished that she had stayed with them, her skills would come in handy.

tumblr_nnypf7yoL51tvraino1_500

  • Speaking of Nanda Parbat, we spent quite a few episodes with people flying in and out of there, but where the hell is it?! Because my first instinct would be to say that it’s somewhere in Asia, where you can get to and from in about a couple of hours flying?!
  • Laurel… until the middle of the season my dislike for her was at a high, as always, but then, I don’t know, she became cool… I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m really liking Laurel right now. She stood up to Oliver and her father, she learned a lot from Roy and the team, she bonded with Felicity and she actually started to have a purpose on the series… well done! And, I really like her with Nyssa (and I wanted Nyssa to stay…).
  • Other character that I didn’t care about before and now I do, is Thea. She grew up a lot – and I’m not only talking about her fighting skills. I’m just sorry that now that she’s ready, she doesn’t have Roy with her… oh, I’m really gonna miss Roy – by the way, he was amazing this season.

tumblr_noclbc3aAn1t5d7t3o2_r1_540

  • Quentin Lance… WTF man?! The last third of the season I just wanted to throw him out of the window. I mean, I get it, what Laurel and Oliver did was wrong, they should have let him know about Sara’s death, but his behavior?! No excuse for that! He kind of redeemed himself in the last episode, only for them to let us know that he was drinking again?! Oh man… this sucks!
  • About Ray, I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about him in the beginning, I mean, he liked Felicity and Felicity belongs with Oliver. Still, he grew on me. He’s funny, smart and a damn good person…
  • … which leads me to one of my biggest problems with the last couple of scenes from the last episode, in which, in front of everyone – including Ray – Oliver declares himself to Felicity and asks her to go away with him. I’m OK with the content of the scene – though I might argue that Oliver goes from 80 to 8 in less than no time. What I’m not OK with was the lack of respect it showed towards Ray, from Oliver and Felicity, because PDA with your new boyfriend while your ex watching is not cool… especially considering that the man just gave you his company (not that you know, but still…).
  • Also, I felt that Oliver just spent the whole season repeating the same mistakes on a loop. After 3 years, I would expect him to trust his friends more and not go around doing things by himself and trusting the wrong people.
  • Which, by the way, what the hell Oliver?! You let Malcolm take control of the League of Assassins?! That smells like bad news already.

I think thinks of anything more to say, except that I really hope that next season is slightly better and that they do the Olicity thing right!

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Trailer

Just a couple of hours since the picture release, we now have a trailer, a proper, hella cool trailer!

I’m so freaking happy about this trailer, the show looks amazing (AMAZING!!!), it’s like The Flash and Arrow and Smallville and Doctor Who all rolled into one, with a pinch of Prison Break! Epic! =D

Oh, and hell yeah Caity Lotz is playing White Canary! Lazarus Pit, you really outdone yourself with this one!

First look at Legends of Tomorrow

The Arrow/The Flash spinoff finally has some graphics and is set to premiere midseason. It looks so cool!!!

DC's Legends of Tomorrow

It also gives us a first look at Caity Lotz’ character, which seems to be the White Canary, though confirmation, when, how and why, we still don’t have.

“When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat — one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known? DC’S Legends of Tomorrow stars Victor Garber (The Flash); Brandon Routh (Arrow); Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who); Caity Lotz (Arrow); Ciarra Renee (Pippin); Franz Drameh (Edge of Tomorrow); with Dominic Purcell (The Flash); and Wentworth Miller (The Flash).”

Jane the Virgin: Chapter 18

Jane-the-Virgin-season-1-episode-18-4

The most lasting relationship on this show: Rafael and his cell phone! Seriously people… why are you messing this up, my heart break a little each time Rafael and Jane share a screen lately, I want them all lovey-dovey again.

Ok, I’m crying here, Rafael? Really? You want a break? Heartbreaking!!!

What’s up with Andie? Seriously?! Is she totally crazy?!

Roman is in the house! Can’t wait to see his reasoning for killing his own brother.

   

Scorpion: Cliffhanger

1.21i

Wow… talk about nailing a title for an episode!

They will all make their peace, right? Cabe is not really leaving, right? Paige will go back on her word and get back to Scorpion, right???? And more importantly, Walter is ok… right?! He’s freaking ok, right?

   

iZombie: Flight of the Living Dead

zmb105a0234bjpg-7823cd_624w

First things first: oh yeah Lowell!!! They played his introduction so damn well, revealing that he’s a fellow zombie at just the right time, and so smoothly that Liv forgot to even question the basics, such as how did it happen, or how does he feed, the only thing she cares about is that he’s really cute and looking for a date! – I totally get you, girl!

Turns out there are a lot more zombies out there, and in high places… yeah, even the chief of police…. they’re everywhere.

Speaking of zombies and dates, Major takes a major kick down from a zombie, the last we see of him he’s unconscious at the skate park, bleeding all over. The next scene is Lowell asking Liv out on a date and a new corpse appearing at the morgue… my heart stopped, at this moment I thought for sure that Major was the one lying on that gurney, maybe coming back as a zombie or whatever, but no, no word yet on how he left that park, but it seems that he’s alive for now… major sigh of relief!

Have I mention that I really like Lowell?! Yeah, and It took me way too long to recognize him… shame on me! Oh Arthur, I mean, Bradley James, I really missed you on my screen!

Also… Ryan Hansen!!!

   

The Flash: All-Star Team-Up

8251e1b4eafc49f2c916ea240cbaa318

Poor Eddie, I was never so sorry about the poor man. He’s in trouble with Iris because he’s keeping secrets about Barry, at Joe’s request. So she moves in into the house where Joe lives with Barry, living Eddie all alone.

I do like the new dynamic between Eddie and Barry though, the new crime-fighting trio is amazing.

“It’s like I’m dating Barry, but in Oliver’s body”… oh man, Felicity, when are you gonna learn to keep your mouth shut?! But she’s so adorable!!!

Also, does she and Ray always have to be touching?! It creeps me out!

How is Cisco having daydreams about something that never actually happened?!

   

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Melinda

shield-melinda002

Poor Melinda… this episode really makes you feel for her. She had so much live before that incident and then it’s like it got all sucked away from her. 😦

So Skye now knows about her story, her parents, her birth, etc, and Lincoln realizes that Raina has another power… she has visions of the freaking future. Well done Raina.

Best 2 minutes of the episode are the last ones. Fitz is able to open Fury’s toolbox and communicates with Coulson and Hunter, and Hunter talks him through ditching his tailing detail… great 😀 !!!

Even if Coulson is setting up a new base for powered people, Melinda knows better than not to trust him, right? He’s the director, he’s bound to have some secrets…

   

Weird Loners: Weirded Out

WeirdLoners_1AXS05_1280x720_428053059829

Still not convinced… at all…

    

Arrow: Broken Arrow

Goodbye-600x337

I just want to kick Lance’s ass so damn much, how dare he? Destroying the foundry like that?! And the love fern?! OMG!!!

Laurel however, just keeps getting higher on my consideration.

Oliver and Ray “team up” in one of the best things ever. Oliver teaching Ray how to be a hero is priceless. The hint that Palmer and Felicity might be related?! Oh Ollie, you jealousy is showing.

Damn it Felicity! “You’re the man that I believe in”? Really? How hard would it be to say “the man I love”?!

Oh Roy… I will miss you most of all as well… I cried so much when he showed up at the foundry, even though I knew it was going to happen.

I really hate Ra’s al Ghoul right now (though I admit that I hate Lance just a tad more).

     

Supernatural: Book of the Damned

SN1018B-239b

I so want to see the Winchesters on a beach somewhere, with sand between their toes…  please, make it happen!

Charlie’s back, bitches! Oh yeah! Better than that is Charlie and Castiel being “besties”, seriously, I did not know how much I needed it before it actually happened.

Oh Sammie… Rowena?! Are you out of your damn mind?

   

Criminal Minds: A Place at the Table

Criminal-Minds-A-Place-at-the-Table-Season-10-Episode-20-02

Poor Hotchner… is it not enough that he will never be able to forgive himself about Hailey’s death, but having his father-in-law rubbing it in his face… poor guy! Still, no doubt that he’s an amazing guy.

I need more Reid with Penelope, ASAP!

    

Young & Hungry: Young & Old

4

Such a funny episode… poor Gaby just keeps messing things up.

   

The Big Bang Theory: The Communication Deterioration

The-Big-Bang-Theory-The-Communication-Deterioration-Season-8-Episode-21-07

I’m glad that Penny got out again of the whole acting gig, they should not get down that road before.

I’m also very glad that Raj and Leonard had a storyline about themselves.

The CW: Superhero Fight Club

So, yesterday, this happened… have you seen it yet?! NO?! OMG, you just have to!

The CW is surely doing it right by promoting 2 of its shows like this – and by the way, it’s promoting the new spin-off as well, that’s the only reason I see for Stein being there. Here it is, the Superhero Fight Club, another amazing Flarrow (a.k.a. Arrow and The Flash) kind of crossover. Enjoy!

This Week on TV (30 March – 05 April)

Scorpion: Crossroads

scorpion-episode-20

I can’t believe that Toby messed that up! Happy was gorgeous, wearing a dress, heels and even perfume, and Toby fell asleep?! What a shame… and I do hope she gives him another chance before the end of the season, I hope they do not drag this much longer, at least one of the couples deserves something good.

About Walter, I’m so glad he finally admitted somehow to Toby and himself that he’s in love with Paige, but talk about bad timing, right?!

    

Castle: Habeas Corpse

-1635ca2bea6a3138

Best part of the episode was, hands down, Esposito and Ryan practicing their dance moves. It’s also great to see how close Alexis and Beckett have gotten.

    

iZombie: The Exterminator

la-et-st-izombie-recap-the-exterminator-20150331

This week Liv consumed the brain of a hitman, someone who showed no emotions or sympathies… so she spends the whole episode not reacting to things… obviously when the effects wear off, she fells everything and is a bit overwhelmed… poor Liv!

She and Ravi find a new zombie, her friend from Med School, but there’s a catch, this zombie hasn’t eaten since she was transformed, so she’s full zombie and Ravi wonders if he feeds her, if she will return to her more Liv-like undead state. It doesn’t work and she almost kills Ravi, and Liv, haven eaten the brain with no emotions, takes a bit too long to save him, but she eventually does, and all is well, except that she killed a person… not good!

Meanwhile, what the hell is Blaine doing with those kids? Is he eating them?! Or transforming them?! We might need some answers… soon!

Liv always has the most amazing things to say, “Are you cool with naming our trivia team Piggy And The Brain?”… enough said!

   

The Flash: Tricksters

The-Flash-970x545

Casting the original Trickster as The Trickster was a stroke of genius, specially integrating so well he’s age and the new one.

Then there the big matter, Barry doesn’t know how to trust Wells and spends the episode pulling back, until finally realizing that for the time being he needs to trust him somehow. This, and in order to protect Iris, Barry reveals himself to Eddie, and he and Joe ask Eddie’s help in keeping her safe, to which he agrees. So now, Eddie knows the secret too! And so the plot thickens… right now, Iris is the only one left in the dark. That was a definitely change in these kind of plots… generally the actual boyfriend doesn’t know that her BFF/future something is in fact the superhero.

We also got a bit of a backstory to Harrison Wells, or Eobard Thawne, because now that we know that the real Wells is indeed dead, is weird to call him that, right? Does that thingy means that he can change his appearance again if he chooses to?!

    

Forever: Punk is Dead

3944172_forever-punk-is-dead-roundtable--photos_7a26bc05_m

David Krumholts as younger Abe was a perfect casting, just perfect!

I don’t see Jo and Isaac together… it just seems weird, I don’t see any chemistry there, at all.

The best part of the show for me continues to be Joel David Moore as Lucas… he’s great!

A lot of the “science” in this episode made very dubious, like after hydration, I have my well founded doubts that the body would look so “fresh”. Also, getting a DNA sample just like that in a body that has been inside a wall for over 20 years, mummified and hydrated?! Damn, I know of better preserved samples in which obtaining DNA of any kind is much harder…

   

Cougar Town: Mary Jane’s Last Dance

29GUIDE2-master675

And it’s over =( !!! Six seasons… I can’t believe it’s really over! The last episode was great, with everyone saying to Jules what they really feel about her… oh the tears!

   

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: One Door Closes

agents-of-shield-one-door-closes-gonzales-flashback

I maintain last week’s position, though not so firmly… The only thing good that Mac did was to save Fitz’s life, thank him for that, but everything else… well….

I love the flashbacks, there were a nice little tie-in to Captain America: the Winter Soldier, though, and even after hearing all those stories, I still can’t understand why these 5 people decided that theirs would be “the real SHIELD”… why?! Because they all get a vote? Not buying it!

I’m still convinced/hoping that Bobbie’s allianges are really to Coulson, especially because she insisted to go to get Skye, in order for them not to hurt her, though that quite didn’t work out like it was supposed to.

And how cool was that it was actually nice little Simmons who brought down Mockingbird?! Epic!

Speaking of Simmons, and Fitz, please tell me that they won’t get all wrapped up in this whole “real SHIELD” business, please?! I really want them to be on the same page and with Coulson.

Melinda May is my hero, ‘nough said!

It’s great that Skye is learning to control her powers, though having just wounded someone might be a step back. Now she off with Gordon, does that mean that she’s leaving the team? Going off the grid?!

Hunter is back! Man, I love that guy! From all the new characters, he’s my favorite, for sure. His exchange with Coulson by the end was hilarious, so now, finally, Hunter is a SHIELD agent!!!!

    

Arrow: Public Enemy

arrow-aresenal-arrow-black-canary

Wow, after a few bumps in the road, I feel that Arrow is getting on track again. Things are not looking good for Oliver.

After Maseo’s attack, the Mayor is dead and Ray is hurt. Felicity spends most of the episode on the episode looking after Ray, while I get why this is, I felt that she should have been with the team, but hey, we can’t have everything. On the plus side, she saves Ray’s life – which I’m glad, I like him – and he decides to tell her that he loves her. Well, this is Felicity, and this is her 3rd “I love you” to which she did not reply, this one though, she clearly didn’t feel the same and made some very weak excuses and left the room. Her mother, who sees right through her, tells her that the reason she did not say that she loves him back is because she doesn’t, she loves Oliver, and she’s got a choice to make. The fact that Ray knows the plot to the 34 seasons of Doctor Who left me super happy… point to Palmer!

Meanwhile, Lance issues a manhunt for the Arrow and Ra’s (being the little son of b****h that he is) helps the issue by telling him exactly who it is behind the mask… Oliver Queen! So Lance wastes no time at all and issues an arrest warrant for Oliver, who after running and putting every single person of his team in jeopardy, feels he has no other choice than to surrender. Team Arrow is not happy about this! But while John Diggle doesn’t know what to do next, Roy takes matters into his own hands, buts on the Arrow green uniform and presents himself to the police announcing that they have the wrong man! Roy Harper, you are officially my favorite member of that team right now!

Captain Lance needs to chill, seriously, it’s getting absurd! I wonder if somehow Sara is revived, if he will still feel the same about vigilantes. Accusing Oliver of being responsible for her joining the league?! Bah, he wasn’t to blame… His treatment of Laurel? Very bad! And hey, I did not like Laurel before, but man, she’s really growing on me and her father is being ridiculous.

It’s incredible how a lie can do much more harm than a thousand truths…

   

Supernatural: Inside Man

tumblr_nm785dadhd1rkfde2o1_500

Bobby’s back!!!

Dean and Crowley are bonding!!!

Sam and Castiel are keeping secrets from Dean and trying to break Metatron out of Heaven!!! And wow, did that turn around… Castiel and Sam are not kidding around.

Crowley finally threw Rowena out! Finally man!

Oh, I love this show!

   

The Big Bang Theory: The Skywalker Incursion

106186_wb_1237b

My inner geek was super happy about this episode, half of it is about George Lucas and Star Wars and the other half is about Doctor Who … wonderful. The fact that Penny actually watches Doctor Who, albeit forced by Leonard, lifts my spirits… and she pays attention too! Then there’s the whole Game of Thrones reference, priceless!
