RECAP/REVIEW: Legends of Tomorrow 2×13 “Land of the Lost”

This week’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow takes us into two of the most dangerous places: the inside of the mind and the ancient past. The episode opens with the compass not really working too well.  Sarah and Jax talk about what’s going on.  They then tempt fate by saying he’s in the brig where he ‘can’t hurt anyone.’ Then we cut to Rip, who uses a Captain’s override command to get out of the…

SUPERGIRL 2×05: “Crossfire” brings Major Plot Developments

I don’t know if anyone here really knows just how invested I get in the Luthor family.  But boy oh boy, this episode of Supergirl basically feels as if made specifically with me in time.  Development for Alex and Maggie’s romantic arc!  Lena Luthor being more than she lets on!  Huge, plot-shaking revelations!

RECAP/REVIEW: White Canary Becomes Legends’ Leader in LoT 2×02

Last week‘s episode of Legends of Tomorrow ended with a cliffhanger: The Justice Society of America (or JSA) appeared to arrest our heroes!  Leaderless without Rip Hunter, the team has to decide who will lead them — and White Canary is the natural choice. This week, we pick up with the JSA telling the Legends of Tomorrow that they’re under arrest.  The Legends take that just as you’d expect, and a knock-down, drag-out fight ensues.  The…
