Arrow – Season 7 Episodes 10 – 22 Review

Arrow S7 P2

Arrow’s seventh season comes a wobbly end, but ultimately a good end. In fact the finale feels very much like an overall series finale, which given Season 8 is not only the last season, but only 10 episodes, it probably for all intents and purposes is the big ending. So let’s have a look at the build up to this grand finale, and see how much of it actually worked…

Legends of Tomorrow – Season 4 Episodes 1 – 8 Review

LoT S4 P1

Legends of Tomorrow was, in my opinion, the best of the four Arrowverse seasons from last year, being as funny as it was entertaining and occasionally dramatic, and while they definitely leaned in too hard on the humour so far, Season 4 still offers up a fun mix of time travel antics and fun character interactions.

Supergirl – Season 4 Episodes 1 – 8 Review

Supergirl S4 P1

Supergirl Season 4 kicks off with a rather on-the-nose look at racism and nationalism in our current society by transplanting aliens as the new foreign menace that are stealing people’s jobs and can’t be trusted etc. It’s all rather dull, and in my case (and hopefully yours too!), it’s preaching to the choir and taking a lot of the reality-escaping fun away from the show… So, yeah. Let’s take a closer look!
