If you’re a murderer or a liar or a cheater, or even if you are prideful, lustful, egocentric, narcissistic or even the littlest bit envious; then that is it for you…right? What you are is what you are for eternity, and there is no room for error, no margin for alteration, nothing in the world that can make you, or persuade you to change your behaviour, or change the reason for your behaviour. But is that really the case? Can a person who has made bad choices really change for the better? Can they be a hero to others and inspire, even when they still struggle with their demons and their better judgement? If I were to tell you that everything that I just mentioned above was wrapped up and presented to us in the form of a superhero show, what would you say? Would you laugh and think I was crazy? Probably. But that exactly is what has come to light, with the seemingly frivolous Legends Of Tomorrow being one of my favourite shows of late- a superhero show with tons of action, and a lot of issues being touched upon, including the notion of people changing for the better.

Supergirl (Season 4 Premiere- “American Alien”)

After reading the recap of Season 1-3 of Supergirl that I recently posted, and from each of the 65 episodes, would you blame Kara Danvers if she felt a bit weary and out of sorts? After all, she’s been betrayed by her aunt and uncle, lost said aunt (because Alex killed her!), lost Mon-El twice (once to time travel, and twice to time travel as well- this time more permanent!), lost her friend Winn (a conscious decision to travel to the future!), and is currently walking on thin ice with her friend Lena Luthor (whom distrusts Supergirl more and more, and is still none the wiser to Kara and the Super being one and the same!). She hasn’t been backed up by Superman in any of her fights, and her last nemesis actually turned out to be a friend with a split personality, who left with her daughter for a fresh start. Does that sum up all of where Kara is at in the beginning of Season 4? Come join me for a bit as I discuss my initial thoughts of the season.

Supergirl (Season 1-3)

Starring: Melissa Benoist, Chyler Leigh, Mehcad Brooks, Jeremy Jordan, Katie McGrath, Chris Wood, Floriana Lima, Odette Annable, David Harewood, Calista Flockhart

When you were younger, what was your preferred occupation? Was it a farmer, an actor, a musician, a fireman, a policeman, an astronaut, a writer, a chef, a biophysicist? Or was it something more outlandish, like being King or the President? What if you found yourself as a superhero, fighting alien life form and protecting the city, the country and the world from anything that could cause it harm? Well if you want to see how that look like, look no further than Supergirl– just started its fourth season, and one of the many superhero TV shows in the DC Arrowverse on the CW. While I plan to later review the 4th season premiere episode (before episode 2 airs tomorrow!), let me first quickly recap seasons 1-3, so that those of you who aren’t caught up with the series, and those of you who would like to, know what’s going on (and I’ll try not to post many spoilers, but it has been a few years since the show started, so I’m sure most of you already know the things I’m talking about!)

Top 10 ___: Top Ten Superhero Characters

2016 is quite the year if you are a fan of superhero drama TV shows and movies. In addition to the new Batman V. Superman movie releasing this year, you have the TV world thriving with shows where its central character is a superhero of some sort. Marvel’s Agents of Shield is a direct tie-in with the many Marvel Cinematic Universe movies releasing every so often. Not to mention their spinoff Agent Carter. Then let’s not forget the DC Universe. Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and now Legends of Tomorrow. So in honour of all things superhero, here’s my favourite 10 superhero characters (some have super powers, others don’t)- mind you, ask me in a year and I reckon half of these 10 will be different.
