Hello and Welcome to the Basement
And This Week With The Superheroes

First let me address something... when it comes to Women's Wrestling in the WWE... no one in their right mind gives a damn about Cameron being used, not when there is Asuka, Bayley, Emma, Paige, Becky, Sasha and Charlotte.

That said... I'm contemplating on if I want to hit the SJ Comic-Con & Toy Bonanza on Sunday... really weather is going to be the big factor here. Also factoring in is when do I want to see Captain America Civil War


Director Seth Grahame-Smith has stepped away from the "Flash" movie starring Ezra Miller over creative differences. His script will still be used, but apparently there is a lot of meddling going on over the tone and direction of the film. With the fall out over Batman V Superman and the reshoots that have been done for Suicide Squad, this does not surprise me. I'm more concerned over Ezra Miller being The Flash and looking like some dude hanging out at the local bordega

X:Men Apocalypse has a cameo by Wolverine in it... and while Bryan Singer says it's to set up the new direction for the franchise... I want to know... why the hell it was revealed now?! A movie has to have some surprises!

Chris Evans wants to keep playing Captain America... and I can't see Disney or Marvel being stupid enough to deny him that.... scratch that... In fact they would be incredibly stupid enough to say they want a new actor for the role (unless they go with Sam Wilson's Captain America)

Netflix has officially ordered the Punisher series as a spin-off of Daredevil and it will start Jon Bernthal... hopefully now his story won't get interrupted by elements that inspired the Teenage Murtan Ninja Turtles.

Marvel's Inhumans movie, scheduled for November 2018 has been pulled... not surprised, have you seen how badly things have been handled on Agents of SHIELD with the Inhumans?

There's a lot of controversy surrounding DC Comics and Eddie Berganza, the creep who has know track record of sexually harassing co-workers following the departure of Shelly Bond... and the question is this, why does this scum bag still have a job after having reports about his behavior hit the news every single year since 2010?

Anyway, let's get to this week's shows, Gotham was on hiatus this week...

The Flash - Back to Normal
: A meta-human named Griffin Grey kidnaps Harry, mistaking him for Earth-1 Harisson Wells, and demands a cure for his condition.
Rating: 3 out of 5 - Really a middle of the road episode, with Barry being down about having to give up his speed to save Wally West who is pestering Joe about arranging a meeting with The Flash, and Harry dealing with the repercussions of his single-minded approach that drove Jesse away. We saw Killer Frost get killed out in a totally dismissive manner, which makes for a rather high body count of the Earth-2 counterparts.

Agents of SHIELD - The Singularity
: The team reels from its losses as Hive continues to draw Inhumans to his side; agents Fitz and Simmons get a lead that could stop the maniacal Inhuman forever
Rating: 3 out of 5 - Another meh episode, we see Fitz and Simmons go undercover, and Evil Daisy in action, plus HiveWard is getting his spores into every Inhuman he comes across... but I feel like nothing was really accomplished here.

Arrow - Canary Cry
: The team struggles to deal with Laurel's death; Diggle is overwhelmed with guilt over choosing to believe that Andy had changed; Lance refuses to believe his daughter is gone
Rating: 1 out of 5 - What the hell was this? For an episode that as described was supposed to highlight the team dealing with Laurel's death... with got flashbacks that show her and Oliver together from before the start of the series, the police being pawns, and a wanna-be tarnishing the name of the Black Canary in an episode that was a mess

Legends of Tomorrow - Leviathan
: Rip takes the team to London in the year 2166, three months before his family is killed, as a final opportunity to take out Savage.
Rating: 4 out of 5 - Can always count on Legends of Tomorrow to be the best show of the week, and the final four episode of the season gets off to a strong start. Vandal Savage's debut was handled well, will be interesting if she is going to be like Scandal (who was a super villain) or Kassidy (who became a FBI profiler), or are they going in a totally different direction with the character. Also Savage is captured, and Ray Palmer reversed the polarity of his suit to become giant sized, which itself was all kinds of awesome! Sadly Kendra's conflict out of the nonsense return of Carter drags this episode down a bit

Any way that wraps up this week, tomorrow is Saturday, it'll be Tales From The TARDIS and the start of They Keys of Marinus
