Why “Bad” TV Can Be Good

You can say it — it’s definitely an ironic title. But it’s taken a long time for these words to come together and make sense in my own head, so I can write them down for you. As most of us, who take to the vast space of the internet in search of fellow fans, opinions, and thoughts about our television shows will tell you, it can get — to put it politely — dicey.

DCTV Crossover Crisis on Earth-X trailer

DCTV Crossover Roundtable: Nazis, Really?

This evening, the annual Arrow-verse crossover commences. The four shows involved, Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow, are combining across two back-to-back nights this year, to create a more seamless, cohesive television event (one would assume). Among the action and romance, this year’s crossover promises something new: Nazis. Here, we discuss our thoughts on the DCTV crossover, the inclusion of Nazis, and what that means for our viewing choices.

Supergirl: How Karamel Fell Victim To Bad TV Tropes And Weird Expectations

So that happened.

The Karamel reunion we had all been waiting for happened last night, and it’s safe to say that things did not go the way Kara — and all of us — had dreamed about. When Winn tracked down an unknown spaceship in National City, Kara and J’onn went down there to investigate.

Supergirl: Top 5 Moments Of 3×02 “Triggers”

Last night’s Supergirl has easily made it to my top 5 episodes of the show. Fear is a powerful, powerful thing, and “Triggers” dealt with it in a way that I was not expecting. I didn’t know much going in, and I had no idea what an emotional ride this episode was going to be.

Ship Wars Supergirls Karamel

SHIP WARS: Supergirl’s Karamel Edition

Time to deconstruct another OTP…or NOTP, as it were. Our first Ship Wars roundtable featured Once Upon a Time‘s Captain Swan; this time, we’re taking a look at Supergirl‘s Karamel. As is often the case when we start discussing controversial ships, our team is split. While we can all agree that Mon-El has some problems, our takes on whether they’ve been addressed well enough to make him good enough for Kara are, well, agreement isn’t a thing here.

So, let’s jump right in and try to figure out what everyone thinks about Karamel, Mon-El himself, Supercorp, and whether or not Supergirl has even given us any better options.

Supergirl: Top 5 Moments Of The Season 3 Premiere

Mon-El, darling, you need to come back. I don’t care if you got dragged into a black hole, you need to come back right away. Kara needs you. We all need you, because that Kara we saw last night is not the sweet, happy, kind-hearted Kara Danvers we have all come to know and love. So please, we’re begging you here. Come back.

Danver Sisters Take Center Stage At This Year’s Mega CW Crossover

The mega DC heroes crossover on The CW has become a tradition. Now with four shows under the DC unbrella, the crossover events seem to be getting bigger and bigger every year. But even though it’s at least a 3-hour extravaganza, it is usually hard to involve so many shows and so many characters in whatever is going on.
