Here is the weekly round up of all the comic-book shows of the week!
5 Oct. 2015: The Last Laugh, Season 2, Episode 3
Gordon and Bullock hunt a nemesis from the past, which leads to a standoff between Jerome and Gordon, and a magic show at a Gotham Children's Hospital gala results in a hostage situation.
I don't watch Gotham. I couldn't finish the first season. However, if you like it, good for you. Different strokes for different folks.
Next Week: Strike Force, 12 Oct.
Barnes forms a task force with help from Gordon; Penguin is kept busy trying to fulfill a favor for Galavan; and Nygma asks Kringle out on a date.
6 Oct. 2015: The Man Who Saved Central City, Season 2, Episode 1
Still feeling responsible for Eddie's death, Barry pushes his friends away and tries to protect the city on his own; Cisco assists Joe with the Meta Task Force.
I think the premiere was what it had to be. It was a bit slow, but after the action-packed season 1 finale, I think it had to be. It was letting you know where everyone was and setting up some stories for the rest of the season. I did have a issue with the way they treated Henry's exit, but that is just a bit of a small issue.
Favorite line: For Real?!- Cisco
Next Week: The Flash of Two Worlds, 13 Oct.
A mysterious man has a warning about an evil speedster intent on destroying The Flash; a determined officer wants to join Joe's meta-human task force.
6 Oct. 2015: Grumpy Old Liv, Season 2, Episode 1
Liv eats a cantankerous old man's brain to learn the details of his death; Ravi thinks Major is experiencing a side effect of the cure; Liv visits Blaine.
Watching the premiere made me feel like I was watching iZombie. Things have changed, but the feeling of the show hasn't. The show is awesome and if you are not watching, you really should be.
Next Week: Zombie Bro, 13 Oct.
Liv eats the brain of a murdered, hard-partying fraternity brother; Ravi asks Major to come with him as he searches desperately for the cure; Blaine meets with a mysterious person from his past.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
6 Oct. 2015: Purpose in the Machine, Season 3, Episode 2
Fitz and the team enlist the aid of an Asgardian to unlock the secrets of the ancient monolith that swallowed Simmons, and Agent May is at a crossroads in her personal and professional life.
I think the io9 reviewer said it best: this was a episode about what makes people monsters. It was about pushing a person's limits until they break. Fitz keeps searching for Simmons and almost dies. Daisy uses her powers to their limits and it almost killed her. They got Simmons back, sure, but at what possible cost? And with Daisy and Coulson so desperate to start the Secret Warriors, they might be willing to throw people to the wolves, you might see people really become monsters.
Next Week: A Wanted (Inhu)Man, 13 Oct.
Mack, Daisy, and Coulson race against time to keep Lincoln safe; Hunter will do whatever it takes to get revenge.
7 Oct. 2015: Green Arrow, Season 4, Episode 1
A new enemy lures Oliver Queen back to Starling City and forces him to put on the hood once more.
This was my favorite episode of the week. Season 3 of Arrow had it's problems. After the finale I realized the main reason why? It was a transition season. It was getting used to having The Flash around. It was adjusting to a new tone. And it all just felt like it was setting something up that never came.
Well, it finally came in season 4. It finally came with Damian Darhk. Thea loves being a hero. Laurel finally feels comfortable being Black Canary. It all just finally feels like it fits. The season might end up sucking, but I have a lot of hope.
Next Week: The Candidate, 14 Oct.
Oliver and Thea are concerned when a family friend plans to run for mayor; Thea starts to exhibit side effects from the Lazarus Pit; Felicity asks an employee for help with a business decision.
