I’m more interested in who’s doing the animated production. Marvel’s past animation projects don’t exactly instill enthusiasm...

The reasoning behind the sonic sunglasses was lovely though. It gave kids at home a toy they could pick up around the house and use instead of having to pay $20 for a sonic screwdriver toy. Same reasoning behind Capaldi’s more stripped down outfit as well. I think that contrasts with the stylized costume Whittaker Read more

I think the conceit is now that the multiverse exists, but the Earth-Prime people don’t know that.

The last episode of Crisis on Infinite Earths basically confirmed that the multiverse still exists. It seems like because their Earths were folded together, the CW characters are just assuming that they’re the only universe left. Since The Flash doesn’t come back until February, I guess we have to wait until then to Read more

I think the opening notes of Superfriends was the most exciting easter egg. I got tingles. Maybe because i grew up on that show, but i grinning like a little kid on christmas morning. Read more

Not only does Marv Wolfman have a cameo, he asks for the autographs of the two superheroes he originally killed off in the Crisis.

The implication seems to be that the DC movies exist somewhere in The CW’s multiverse, but this scene took place after the multiverse had been destroyed. That means our Barry and that Barry were only able to meet each other because of their connection to the Speed Force, so the DC movies must exist in a separate Read more

Much better than last week's rubbish but I do have one quibble; two weeks ago the Doctor is wiping the memory of Ada Lovelace, but this week Tesla and Edison get a free pass? How does that work?

Thomas Edison was played rather delightfully by Robert Glenister. You may remember him from multiple other roles, perhaps the most prominent recently in the show Hu$tle. He was also in a sitcom with Fifth Doctor Peter Davison called Sink Or Swim. And his brother Philip Glenister was in Life On Mars, of course.

One element of the episode that I really did like was that it didn’t take the easy route with Tesla and Edison. Read more

Wonder if the Racnoss and Skithra were a case of parallel evolution or if they actually were related at some point. Sure it was a case of reusing old props and designs, I’m sure, on the reality side but it still gives things to think about in universe (and is usually the sort of thing the prose or audio plays like to Read more

It was jarring how quickly the Doctor shifted from her preachy anti-gun stance to planning to blow up a spaceship with electricity. Her willingness to fight back made for a more thrilling episode. (Although they dodged a dark turn by having the ship flee.)

I liked this episode a lot - probably slightly above Rosa thanks to a bit of nuance and more time spent with the characters instead of thinly motivated space racists, but still a bit below Demons of the Punjab which remains the high-watermark for this era. This version of Tesla was such a delight and got some quiet Read more

A welcome return to form, and I did appreciate the nuance in the portrayals of Tesla and Edison. The villains were a bit generically bad but they also did look cool so there’s that.
