Tonight: “Legends Of Tomorrow” (1/21/2016)

The CW Network shows no signs of stopping with all of their DC Comics properties that they are bringing to small screen life and now “Legends Of Tomorrow” will join both “Arrow” and “The Flash” as an offering. It’s a spin-off based on the two series and will unite numerous heroes from across space and time. Check out the poster, the premise and the cast rundown. I’ll return afterward with some added thoughts.

Tonight: “DC Legends Of Tomorrow” & “The Dawn Of The Justice League” Specials

I realize that there have been a lot of television and film posts over these last few days but that is going to be the case with so many of these heroic shows that we love having special episodes and premieres. Now I’ve already suggested that you needed to set the DVR for ABC’s offerings today and just for good measure you should do the same over on The CW Network that will be airing two specials tonight as well. The first is related to their upcoming show “DC Legends Of Tomorrow” AND then there is an inside look at what we should expect in “The Justice League” and how that is being built up in the coming soon film “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice”. Check out the poster I snagged from Facebook and some premise.

“Watch the two DC Specials TONIGHT starting at 9/8c on The CW and see the world premiere of the new Suicide Squad trailer. First, meet the heroes and villains that become DC’s Legends of Tomorrow on a behind-the-scenes special, then get an exclusive sneak peek at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, #WonderWoman, and #SuicideSquad on DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve been behind all of the DC Comics live action series for a few years now and while I initially had some reservations about the “Legends Of Tomorrow” show, it does seem to have some promise as they’ve recently revealed that we shall even see Jonah Hex on the show at some point. Not a bad thing at all if they are using the time travel to let us meet other heroes as they adventure into history. As far as the “BvSDOJ” film I am still very much on the fence about it. When I last saw a report about this film, they said how Doomsday was not going to be the biggest threat to its heroes as many might have surmised and all I can take from that is that we will also be getting Darkseid in this film. Whew, that is just too damn much for me in a film that is supposed to be the first proper building block to such a team. Too rushed and too visibly trying to catch up to Marvel Studios even though they maintain that they are not. What do you readers think? Let me know in the comments but after you program the televisions of course.

Look up in the sky, its a bird, its a plane…..it’s Supergirl!!!! Yes it is and I hope you don’t mind my slight reworking of the classic intro to the old George Reeves “Superman” show because it made sense to do so with tonight being the premiere of the first episode of “Supergirl” on CBS. Let’s take a quick look at the poster art, the premise and cast and then chat a bit on this one.

Did you watch “iZombie” when it premiered last season my dear comic book series loving readers or did you let it pass you by? I didn’t know what to expect as I was not a devout reader of the title even though some friends in the illustrious DC Comics company had given me several issues and some trade paperback editions of it and at the end of the day I found the show to be quite a bit of fun. The second season starts tonight and airs after “The Flash” so check out the poster, the premise and the cast and then we can talk about it a little more.

The Premise:
Seattle medical resident Olivia “Liv” Moore is turned into a zombie while attending a boat party. To cope with her new appetite for brains, Liv takes a job at the King County morgue and shares her secret with her boss, Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti. In order for Liv to survive, Ravi encourages her to eat the brains of murder victims who are delivered to the morgue. Whenever she eats a victim’s brain, Liv inherits some of their personality traits temporarily. She also experiences flashbacks which often give her clues as to the nature of the murder. Liv uses this new ability to help the Seattle Police Department solve crimes, passing herself off as a psychic consultant.
