I like S&L!  It will be interesting to see how it all plays out, but Superman and Lois in Smallville can work.  There was a cute homage to "Lois and Clark" early on.  Only one problem.  I've got no problem with a black Perry White (Man of Steel) or Pete Ross (Smallville); but I don't know if I can abide a Lana Lang who isn't a redhead.  :nono5:  :biglaugh:

It was a direct quote of the LoT "Invasion!" episode,.at 6:20. "Darmok and Jalad at Tenagra!"   "I'll take that as 'have fun storming the castle."  "Oh. For real?  You're gonna use Princess Bride

That's what happens with Ralph Dibny in the mix.  (Of course, Gypsy's dad was a hoot, too.) George

Due to a COVID interruption in filming S&L, after the fifth episode it will be replaced on Tuesday nights by Supergirl (Mar. 30).  S&L will be back May 18, and Supergirl will finish up the series after S&L's first season concludes.

In other news, Legends of Tomorrow return Sunday May.2  Stargirl will return this summer, but I can't find a date.

Brainiac 5 continues to use movie references.  Last week it was "Ghostbusters" (the "perfect movie," according to Brainy); this week it's "Back to the Future," as he a Nia go back to Kara and Alex's past.  The actresses portraying the younger Kara, Alex, and Cat Grant are amazing likenesses.  I almost thought they were digitally de-aged (as per Kurt Russell in Guardians of the Galaxy 2).

Legends of Tomorrow returns tonight.

And was it a disappointment.

I don't mind the lighter mood, but the "Legends" now comprise four characters I could recognize (who no longer wear costumes, unless you count Constantine's trenchcoat) and five who were made up specifically for the show.  It seems that the plot thread for this season will be Sara and Garry lost in space-time, with the magical chaos in their wake being cleaned up by the others. Can we just say that Crisis brought back Vandal Savage?  I think I'm even appreciating Bebo more...

At least the women are easy on the eyes.

Thanks for keeping me up on what's new and resuming.   BTW, saw John Cena give an interview in his Peacemaker costume.  It looks JUST like the outfit from the comics- I identified it instantly, even with his helmet off to open the interview.  The resemblance is uncanny.   I'm now interested in seeing whatever he's supposed to be in just to see Peacemaker in action.   I forget if he's supposed to be in movies, but IIRC he's got a show that's supposed to start filming eventually as well.

Well, "Captain Luthor" is really another DC character (the way "Hank Henshaw" was really J'onn J'onzz).  If you're like me, you'll figure it out about five minutes before it's revealed.

I haven't followed any of these shows since CRISIS/COVID.

I did keep up with God Friended Me and Zoey's Extrordinary Playlist, but I have no idea how last season even ended on all the shows we've been discussing here.

I suppose I can catch up over the summer (yes, I know Supergirl is ending).

Is Flash even on?

Pretty much all of the DC superhero shows are a blend of superhero action and soap opera.  I prefer more action and less opera, but sometimes they achieve a good mix.  I really enjoyed the latest S&L.  No telling when any of you will watch it, but the title of the episode is "Holding the Wrench" (makes sense when you see it).
