Tales From The TARDIS: The Ordeal

While Ian, Barbara and their Thal friends try to find a way into the Dalek City through the mountains, the Doctor, Susan and Alydon attempt to make their own way in. Additional Thoughts: This episode showed the positives of the serial aspect, while yes there are sometimes dull episodes and a story can get drawn out too long, you can often get episodes like this that sets up everything for the epic conclusion. Also as I noted in my vlog... it's a big use of plot convenience that the Daleks didn't have what they needed for the plan, it works out but it's obvious that it's done so that the good guys win in the end... not that there is anything wrong with that. And yes I did take a pot-shot at The Flash... and yes I am still pissed off over this week's episode (Welcome to Earth-2).

This Week With The SuperHeroes: Feb 12, 2016

Topics On this Week's Program:

Plans to see Deadpool this weekend on Sunday... wait a minute that's Valentines Day... it's 2016...

Next 3 Transformers films getting annual release dates

The new Top Gear cast

Going Over This Episodes of the X-Files, Supergirl, The Flash, Agent Carter, Arrow & Legends of Tomorrow.

Episode Ratings. X-Files: Home Again: 2 out of 5 - basically a remake of an episode from season 2

Supergirl: For the Girl Who Has Everything: 3 out of 5 - tired plot, has some humorous moments, decent overall

The Flash: Welcome to Earth 1 out of 5, Wasted opportunity, characters made to look like idiots, only saving grace was Jay Garrick's return of speed.

Agent Carter: The Atomic Job - 3 out of 5, fairly dull, but costumes, set designs make up for it, really unfair to compare it to other Superhero shows

Arrow: Sins of the Father - 2 out of 5: convoluted plot points, secondary plot on the Island unneeded beyond indicating magic will be a big part of the season finale

DC's Legends of Tomorrow: White Knights - 3 out of 5, in a way a step back, character interaction is a strong point, return of bickering among some characters for sake of plot disappointing.

Additional Thoughts: Yeah... I am really pissed about how bad this week's episode of The Flash was... and if there is one thing I hate, it's characters having to become idiots for the sake of the plot. Really was a slow news week, for other topics, so I had to go for the Top Gear cast, and reference Ghostbusters 2.
