  • Manifest: When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent, but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved. Yet in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years and their friends, families and colleagues, after mourning their loss, had given up hope and moved on. Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible. From executive producer/writer Jeff Rake, and executive producers Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke and comes an emotionally rich, unexpected journey into a world grounded in hope, heart and destiny.  The cast includes Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina and Parveen Kaur. From Compari Entertainment and Jeff Rake Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, Manifest premieres Monday, September 24, at 10/9c pm NBC.
  • The 100: Over the last four seasons The 100 have fought to survive against unimaginable odds, only to see the world end for a second time. Season five begins six years later, with our heroes still separated: Bellamy’s team in space, Clarke (Eliza Taylor) on the ground, and hundreds trapped in the bunker below. But when a massive prison ship descends upon the last survivable place on earth, The 100 must come together to reclaim their home. As two armies converge on one valley, alliances will shift, friends will become foes, and the march to war threatens to destroy all that’s left of the human race. Can our heroes break the cycle, or is humanity doomed to repeat the past? In this epic battle for survival, one thing is certain: there are no good guys.  Based on the book series by Kass Morgan, The 100 is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Jason Rothenberg, Dean White and Leslie Morgenstein (The Vampire Diaries).  Starring Eliza Taylor, Paige Turco, Bob Morley, Marie Avgeropoulos, Lindsey Morgan, Christopher Larkin, Richard Harmon, Tasya Teles and Henry Ian Cusick, the series airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on The CW.
  • Freedom Fighters:  The Ray: All his life, Ray Terrill has fought injustice, dreaming of making a real difference like his older brother, a Marine who was killed in Afghanistan. One day, he stumbles upon a dying superhero from another Earth and is stunned to find that this superhero looks just like him—because it is! The dying Ray Terrill of Earth-X transfers photokinetic energy to this Earth’s Ray, making him a superhero – THE RAY. However, Ray quickly learns being a Super Hero isn’t all hanging muggers from streetlamps and fighting giant robots. As the evil Nazi New Reichsman of Earth-X, led by Overgirl, close in, The Ray must learn to harness his powers by coming to terms with his true self, even if that means also finally coming out of the closet to his parents. The fate of Earth-X depends on it!  Based on the DC characters, the animated series is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Blue Ribbon Content, Warner Bros. Television Group’s digital studio. New episodes stream on CW Seed, starting July 18.

TV Review: DC’s Legends of Tomorrow S3E8 Crisis on Earth-X, Part 4

Barry and Iris’ wedding brings the gang together, but things go awry when villains from Earth-X attack the ceremony. This is the finale to “Crisis on Earth-X”!

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow wraps up this year’s big crossover between Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash, and Legends. The Nazis are now on Arrow and the Flash’s world and have a bomb that can do serious damage but they’re still after Supergirl’s heart, which is so weird to be the goal of this entire event.

This episode brings everyone together in one final battle that sees Nazis running around and killing individuals indiscriminately. There’s a brutal aspect to it all but something that’s also heroic at the same time. There’s good, there’s bad, but the action is plentiful.

What’s more surprising is the death of the event and a return in some ways. While I expected the return once that character arrived the death threw me. Not only because it’s a death but who it is and who he represents considering it’s Nazis. That aspect is front and center during the funeral. While I don’t expect it to last, the event’s willingness to present pink triangles and yellow Stars of David make me respect the event for not washing over the reality of it all.

“Crisis on Earth-X” wraps up with what looks like repercussions that will continue on at least for the short term and isn’t an empty event that has no impact. The ending too was damn near perfect with… not going to surprise that. While there’s absolute flaws to the event, it’s one that has balanced everything well in 4 episodes that packed a hell of a lot in and give us lots of payoff.

Overall Rating: 8.0

Review and Recap: DC’s Legends of Tomorrow S3E6 Helen Hunt

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow S3E6 Helen Hunt has our rag tag gang of superhero misfits trying to get Helen of Troy back into her own time in order to save Hollywood. Helen of Troy has a face and presence that launches a flurry of fists between any man who lays eyes on her. Everyone seems to be infected by her beauty, except for Jackson who has Stein’s mind thanks to a freaky Friday Body swag. Jackson only has eyes for Hedy Lamarr and her beautiful brain, there’s a nice historic shout out to Lamarr which is very much appreciated in an episode that takes aim at male gaze.

This episode is another well written win for the Legends Writers Room, this time around taking on (white) male entitlement. The ladies take the lead and have to save the day giving us an amazing action packed romp through time. We get a nice glimpse into what it must have been like to be Helen of Troy and have wars fought in her name without allowing her any agency. There’s a nice sense of sisterhood when Helen drives off with the female Legends as the men of Hollywood go to war over who gets the girl.

Back on board the ship those who don’t know learn quick, without Hedy Lamarr becoming famous and sharing her work, the ship can’t run because, her patents laid the groundwork for everything awesome. Damien Darhk is up to his old tricks with some bad ass chicks as his seconds in command and, big plans for his new new world order as a hybrid born again body. There’s also a lot of reveals on the family lineage front, Darhk has a daughter who’s even more ruthless than he is and OG Vixen has a granddaughter who is living her life in the dark side. We also get to see Helen find agency by being her own hero and coming to Amaya’s rescue and Hedy fixes Firestorm after mansplaining some science to them.

While women reigned supreme tonight, the show ends with Ray coming clean about the Vixen family tree and the ship being captainless as Sarah lies in a coma but there’s some solace in knowing that Kira drops Helen off on Themyseria and letting her live her own life, with some of the baddest warrior women we know.

Overall: 9.9

Legends of Tomorrow Commemorates Trump’s Pussy Grabbing Remark with a Plaque

Donald Trump hasn’t even been President for a year and he’s already getting plaques commemorating him. A small metal plaque has been posted at the studio where the now President commented to Billy Bush about grabbing women “by the pussy.”

The plaque was posted by producers of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow which airs on The CW. The comments which was recorded by Access Hollywood occurred on the same lot for the show.

The hot-mic recording happened in 2005 when the then Apprentice host bragged to show host Billy Bush about kissing and fondling women without their consent, assault.

The plaque reads:

On this spot in September 2005, Donald J. Trump bragged about committing sexual assault. In November 2016, he was elected President of the United States.

The plaque was taken down 15 minutes after it was put up. Now, the Legends team just needs to work this into their show…

TV Review: DC’s Legends of Tomorrow S3E3 Zari

DC Legends of Tomorrow continues to tackle complex issues and “Zari” gives us one of the feistiest and action packed episodes so far. The team resides to save Time Bureau pencil pusher Gary when he sends out a distress call after an attack from the mystical water woman seen at the end of last weeks episode. While half the team sets off to find out who was in the TB’s mystery transport box, aka the reason for the water assassins attack, the other half tries to solve the mystery of Amaya’s glitchy totem power.

While the professor and Nate decide to mansplain the power of the totem to Amaya (nice Job writers for calling it what it was) the rest of the team go out on the hunt for the escaped prisoner. The future is hella bleak, religion and being a metahuman are both illegal and Argus sends out drones to hunt them down which is challenging enough without the “water bitch” hot on their trails. When push comes to shove, newcomer Zari fights against the water walker and when there’s a moment of space she saves Ray, while Sarah plays chicken with the Time Bureau’s ships to save Zari. Amaya gets much of her toughness back just in time for the episodes final battle against the big bad and embraces her inner totem , after a long talk with her one of her ancestors. Tonight’s episode gave us a heist as a jail break, glowing necklaces, impromptu metahuman rescue from a detention center, and a vision quest, all rolled into one amazing hour of television.

The writers continue to tackle biases, societal norms (newcomer Zari is a Muslim female with metahuman adjacent powers courtesy of her very own totem), gender issues (so much mansplaining and attempts at manfixing). I love the way that they keep things fresh, honest and relatable enough that the diversity calls for the viewer to question their own issues with “the other.” The stunningly diverse cast stays refreshing and openly allows for chances to view the world through people outside the norm/default (cis white/male) views. There’s something hella awesome about a show that manages to inject some social theory into an action packed, camptastic series but, the writers manage to do it and I’m all the way here for it,

Overall: 8.9
