Narratively speaking, "Crisis On Infinite Earths" has been a faithful adaptation of its source material only in its broadest strokes.

On Rick & Morty, dragons are more trouble then they're worth
Well, this is sad: I just got the pun in the title. The "Ricktim's" is what threw me. Without the context of the rest of the episode, with its emphasis on soul-bounding and slut dragons, the joke was just too much of a stretch for my old man brain. It's a good bit, though, for an episode that's… hm. Well, on the plus…

Crisis On Infinite Earths gets off to an explosive start
"Holy crimson skies of death!" After a full year of anticipation, the Arrowverse's attempt to do for small-screen superheroes what Avengers: Endgame did for big-screen ones is finally here. And its first 10 minutes are some of the most exhilarating superhero TV I've ever seen. The opening moments of the opening…

Work In Progress begins to work its melancholy charms
Like recent half-hour dramedies Better Things, Take My Wife, and One Mississippi, Showtime's Work In Progress is a loosely autobiographical work. Series creator and improv vet Abby McEnany plays a fictionalized version of herself—instead of getting laughs at the iO Theater, she's some kind of office drone. But, no…

The L Word: Generation Q plots an intergenerational, more inclusive world in its pilot
The L Word: Generation Q opens with cunnilingus and period sex. It's a sexy, funny, and realistic scene, but it's also striking for anyone familiar (or, in my case, overly familiar) with the original series, which ran on Showtime from 2004 to 2009. In the original series—helmed by Ilene Chaiken who now plays just an…

Watchmen composes the greatest love story ever told
The Watchmen comic series shed light on the morally corrupt, broken, and deranged beings the comic-book world lifted to superhero status. The popularity of these fictional beings impacted how people wanted to see themselves—physically perfect, wealthy, and willing to break the law to find justice. It was time for a…

We know how many people have streamed The Irishman, but the numbers still aren't very clear
According to Variety, the Nielsen organization—which hangs out on tree branches looking through windows to see what people are watching on TV, or so we've been told—has compiled an estimation of how many people watched The Irishman in its first five days on Netflix, and while it's an interesting bit of data to…

Diana goes to the mall in the first trailer for Wonder Woman 1984
It has been a long time since we heard anything about Wonder Woman 1984, the not-sequel to Patty Jenkins' smash-hit superhero movie starring Gal Gadot, with Jenkins herself spoiling a surprise twist last summer with a photo of Chris Pine's Steve Trevor looking mysteriously alive despite having died in the last movie.…

Here's an appropriately weird teaser image from Disney 's WandaVision
Though Baby Yoda probably won't be in them, Disney does have a bunch of other original shows in the pipeline that seems pretty exciting. One of them is the very weird-sounding (and weirdly named) WandaVision, which will star Marvel's Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany—a.k.a. Wanda Maximoff and her dearly-departed…

Midge learns an important lesson in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
As the title implies, "Kind of Bleu" is an episode about important realizations, as well as disappointments. It starts with Midge waking up on a lawn chair to a group of synchronized swimmers practicing in the pool. The idyllic and beautiful routine is disturbed when Midge somewhat angrily and absent-mindedly throws a…

Everything is hot, hot, HOT in Miami, as Midge continues on the next leg of her tour at the gorgeous Fontainebleu hotel, a resort so invested in appearance that it includes a stairway to nowhere that exists for the sheer purpose of being able to show off your outfit to other guests.
