Daredevil: Season One Review


WARNING: Spoilers ahead.

I have to admit, when I first started watching Daredevil on Netflix, I had no idea who he was. I’ve never been very familiar with comics, only recently have I started paying attention to the Green Arrow, Birds of Prey and The Flash ones, because of the CW. Amidst all of the buzz that has been generated over this recently released Marvel series, which has already been renewed for season two, I decided to give it a shot, and I was not disappointed.

Charlie Cox plays Matt Murdock: lawyer by day, vigilante by night. Oh yeah, and he’s also blind from an accident when he was a kid. Continue reading

Arrow 3×21: “Al Sah-him”


With Oliver Queen accepting the outstanding offer to become the next Ra’s al Ghul, things in Starling City have never looked bleaker. Even when they thought he was dead, at least Team Arrow could come to terms with that, but this time, each struggles with it in their own way.

We begin with the Black Canary suited up and fighting some man on the street. With the Arrow gone, and Oliver gone, it’s up to her to defend the streets of Starling City, and it’s so pleasing to watch. After weeks, I presume, of training with Nyssa, Laurel can handle herself. Continue reading

The Flash 1×20: “The Trap”


The Flash’s continuity this season in its epic delivery has been somewhat of a marvel. Perhaps it’s because we’ve hit the final stretch, but I have to say, this episode delivered the best performances from Grant Gustin and Tom Cavanagh.

With the events of the last episode looming, tonight we pick up right where it left off: with Barry, Caitlin and Cisco in Wells’ secret room, looking at the news report from April 25, 2025. The article? Written by our very own Iris West….. Allen. Continue reading

The Flash 1×19: Who is Harrison Wells?


Last week on The Flash, Ray Palmer and Felicity Smoak visited Central City, leading to interactions that stopped the Robotic Bee Queen, and Joe and Barry informing Cisco and Caitlin about Harrison Wells being the Reverse Flash. (Sorry about not posting a recap for last week, wasn’t a huge fan of the episode, and was extremely busy, so I didn’t want to just halfheartedly post something that would be awful.)

To learn more about Harrison Wells, Cisco and Joe head to Starling City to delve deeper into the car crash that changed Wells, according to the his old, fancy, doctor friend from last week. Meanwhile, Caitlin struggles with accepting the truth, without any evidence.  Continue reading

Arrow 3×19: “Broken Arrow”


With Oliver Queen down, and the “Arrow” in prison, Starling City is left to fend for itself when a metahuman decides to start robbing banks, and draining energy sources to power his eyes.

The episode starts with Roy being escorted, in Arrow garb, into the police station, as Oliver prepares to sign a full confession. Laurel then comes in, in her only scene this episode, demanding Oliver shut his mouth, and confronts her father with news that the District Attorney will not be prosecuting Oliver Queen. Continue reading

Arrow 3×18: “Public Enemy”


The episode picks up right where the last left off: with the mayor being killed by an arrow, and Felicity in Maseo’s sights for the next. But Ray Palmer saves the day, covering Felicity and getting shot through the chest. (I’m loving this friendship between Felicity and Laurel, though. Laurel’s first instinct is to ask if Felicity is okay after the arrow is shot.)

Quentin is set on capturing the Arrow, leading the city on a manhunt with shoot to kill orders if the Arrow is spotted, and reinstating the anti-vigilante task force. After a visit from Ra’s al Ghul, Lance learns the true identity of the Arrow, thus making it known to the public that Oliver Queen is the Arrow.  Continue reading
