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.

The Flash: Fast Enough

Let me start by saying that I was consciously putting off watching this episode because I knew it was going to be heartbreaking and then I would have to go through a lot of months without this show, and I’m still not ready for that!

the-flash-fast-enough_article_story_large

The Flash did everything right this season, but that finale, oh boy, that was something else.

  • First of all, the acting. This cast took it out of the park, especially Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Rick Cosnett, Carlos Valdes and John Wesley Shipp. When the episode ended, I was all tears.
  • This episode shows so well that in this show (or at least in this season), the focus was much more on Barry and his fathers, than on Barry and his love interests, and that is amazing. More so because Barry and his dads are AMAZING!

  • Each time Barry has a scene with Joe it’s probably gonna be my favorite of that episode – they’re just that good. But on this one, it was the Barry/Henry scene that made me lose it completely. What Henry tells his son is just so profound, he rather be in jail than see his son become something less than what he is… come on, that’s love!
  • But Joe is not behind, he rather lose Barry as a son, in order for him to grow up with both his parents… more tears – what was the game plan here, Flash writers?!
  • I loved Dr. Stein on this episode, how determinant he was for almost everything. I liked especially of his talk with Eddie!!! I’m looking forward to see more of him in Legends of Tomorrow.

  • Cisco and Wells… I could watch more of them. I’m kind of hoping that now that the Reverse Flash has ceased to exist, that it somehow means that the real Harrison Wells never died, and that somehow he and Cisco might bond. But that’s asking a lot, because if they go there, they would have to erase and change a lot of things, and I guess that’s more of a parallel timeline or something like that. Though Tom Cavanagh is confirmed for season 2, so…

  • Cisco is on his way to becoming Vibe, while Caitlin is seen as Killer Frost when Barry is trying to create the wormhole.

  • I was really ok with Eddie taking control of his destiny and going to get the girl – though we knew it was doomed from the start. But he was right, the universe in which Iris bears the name Allen, is not their universe, so in reality they could have happened.
  • If it wasn’t of course for the fact that Eddie needed to stop existing… he had to go and be a hero… I will miss him dearly!!! But ultimately he did what he had to do to completely erase the Reverse Flash. Well done… you were a real hero Eddie.
  • There’s one thing that I’m not 100% convinced about: Ronnie and Caitlin. I love Caitlin. I like Ronnie. I do not like them together! I did not like that wedding. At all! Sorry…

  • Grant Gustin is amazing! Have I said that already?! This show has been so great because he inputs a heart to Barry and the Flash, while maintaining a comedic side… He has been wonderful and should truly be commended by the success of this series.
  • Oh… and that scene with Nora Allen?! WOW!

Oh… I’m gonna miss you Flash!

This Week on TV (30 March – 05 April)

30marc

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

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!

The Flash: The Nuclear Man

Last week Barry had to try to manage having a personal life, that is dating Linda, and his duties as the Flash.

flash-season-1-episode-13-linda-barry

Things did not always go alright for him, poor guy, on the first date he managed by super-speeding to the crime places and then back again, before she could notice that he was gone. The second date, however, was slightly trickier. She showed up more than willing to take things to the next level, but Barry, worried how his speed might affect everything and then getting a distressed call from Caitlin, had to bail on her, while trying to get dress, talking and leaving at the same time… stumbling a lot. Linda was more or less OK with it, until Iris told her that Barry was still hung up on someone, and that was why he was dodging her. Linda got it, and set Barry free… he did not want to be set free though, and soon was asking Iris to butt out because he doesn’t has those feelings for her anymore, and was asking Linda for a second chance, which she gave him.

Joe asks Cisco help to gather information on the murder of Barry’s mother. Soon they find that the speedsters left some blood behind, with 2 distinct genetic profiles. That’s when Joe drops the bomb: he wants Cisco to run it against Harrison Wells DNA! Cisco is appalled and refuses, but soon, after Wells suggests something unimaginable, Cisco runs the profiles, finding one match… not to Wells, but to Barry. There’s more, the proteins in the blood indicate that it did not belong to young Barry, but an adult one! So, as we have always suspected, The Flash (adult) was present in the night that his own mother was killed… time-travelling plot begins!

fla113a0256bjpg-294c4a_960w

Caitlin and Dr. Wells try to find and help Ronnie/Dr. Stein a.k.a. Firestorm, finding out that he’s unstable and in risk of causing a nuclear explosion (hence the title). Dr. Wells’s response could not be clearer: they should kill him before he can go off. Cisco is shocked, but Caitlin isn’t standing for it, remind him that she has lost Ronnie once already, she’s not about to lose him another time. More than that, they’re talking about 2 lives. Dr. Wells tries do come up with a solution, but Ronnie/Stein has already left, in order to protect the people in the city. Caitlin and Barry go to him in the hopes that the device that Wells created works… it doesn’t and Firestorm blows up…

So, Linda and Barry is a go, Iris is super jealous, Firestorm blew up (but we know from the next week promo that both men survive), Caitlin will have her man back… why am I not excited about this?! Don’t get me wrong, I like Ronnie, not sure I like Ronnie and Caitlin though…

DC Movies Announcement

In the middle of last month, WARNER BROS / DC announced the release of 10 movies throughout the next 6 years, without counting another Batman and Superman standalones movies, with Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, respectively:

  • August 5, 2016 – Suicide Squad, directed by David Ayer.
  • June 23, 2017 – Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot debuts the character in BvS: DoJ.
  • November 17, 2017 – Justice League Part One, directed by Zack Snyder
  • March 23, 2018 – The Flash, starring Ezra Miller.

  • June 19, 2020 – Green Lantern.

Though I’m not overly excited about BvS: DoJ, I’m intrigued to say the least, about this DC universe. But I can’t help feeling that maybe they’re missing an opportunity by not integrating the DC movies with their TV shows. I mean, I LOVE Ezra Miller, but we just got a Flash, does it really make sense to introduce another one in just 4 years?! Well, we’ll see…
