BTWF: Stephen Amell on Degrassi: The Next Generation
March 6th, 2019 under Before They Were Famous, DC Comics, Degrassi. [ Comments: none ]

Before Stephen Amell was protecting Starling City from bad guys on Arrow, he was protecting a party from minors on Degrassi: The Next Generation. He looks the same now as he did when he was 22 in that 2004 episode.


This news will be an Arrow to the heart for fans of this DC Universe show
March 6th, 2019 under DC Comics. [ Comments: none ]

As we know, Arrow was renewed for an 8th season in January. Today, we are finding out that it will be the show’s last one and it will only be 10 episodes long.

Stephen Amell wrote this about this show ending, “Playing Oliver Queen has been the greatest professional experience of my life… but you can’t be a vigilante forever.” Then he added, “There’s so much to say… for now I just want to say thank you.”

Arrow was Greg Berlanti’s first DC Universe show he did with The CW and since then they have added The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Black Lightning along with the possibility of Batwoman. Not a bad legacy for the show.

I kind of had a feeling this was going to happen when I saw the show’s ratings on Monday. If they were not a series low, they were pretty close.

UPDATE: Stephen Amell went on Facebook live and spoke more about the show ending. To see what he had to say, then click here!


Shazam makes superhero films fun again
March 5th, 2019 under DC Comics, Zachary Levi. [ Comments: none ]

Over the last few decades, superhero movies and shows have gotten darker and darker. That is about to change with Shazam when it comes out on April 5th. This film is making them fun again. A trend that I hope continues because I am tired of all of the doom and gloom. Superheroes are supposed to give us hope, not despair.


Can Doom Patrol survive a road trip?
March 1st, 2019 under DC Comics, Matt Bomer. [ Comments: none ]

The third episode of Doom Patrol is up on DC Universe and it is a positive one. I say that because we get Negative Man’s back story. We find out what Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer) was like before he was taken over by negative energy and what it was like when it ruined his life.

Before we get to that, Doom Patrol gets a tip that Chief (Timothy Dalton) is in Paraguay. Therefore, Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), Elasti-Girl (April Bowlby), Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Cyborg (Joivan Wade) and Negative Man get on the school bus and embark on a road trip. As we remember, the last time they went on one, a whole city was destroyed and its inhabitants died. Will this trip go better?

This time, it is them in trouble after the negative energy gets out of Trainor and causes their bus to break down. That is when his back story starts the night before that fateful fight. He is in the back of his truck making out with his lover (Kyle Clements) and he gives Trainor an ultimatum. Trainor doesn’t take it and goes back to his wife (Julie McNiven) and sons.

Then as the episode goes on, we find out what happened after his plane crashed leaving him severely burned all over his body. We see how after being left with disfiguring burns changed him and made him the Negative Man he became

Back to our Patrol, they finally make it to Paraguay and Nazi man’s puppet show. Is Chief there? What happens when they confront him? You do not want to miss it.

I went from watching Matt Bomer on Will & Grace to him in this episode, and how he has not gotten an Emmy is beyond me. He can so effortlessly go from comedy to drama, it leaves me in awe as I watch him. Very few actors can do it as well as him.

Plus, I enjoy everyone else on this show. I love watching superheroes curse and not be perfect. That is why I get such a kick out Doom Patrol. You can tell they are having as much fun making it as we do watching it.


Doom Patrol is far from being doomed!
February 22nd, 2019 under Brendan Fraser, DC Comics, Matt Bomer. [ Comments: none ]

I have to start off by saying I am so over comic book shows and movies. Because of that, I was thinking of skipping Doom Patrol. Then I saw some reviews about the show that is on DC Universe, and I am like I so have to check this out. As soon as I heard some cursing and saw a sex scene, I knew this was the superhero show I was going to love. And I do.

The first episode was posted last week, so I am late to the game. Since it is a streaming site, you can watch the first two episodes now. It is the type of show you want to watch after a long work week or actually anytime.

The series starts off with Cliff Steele (Brendan Fraser) a married race car driver with a kid who is sleeping with the maid. Not exactly perfect, far from it. He gets into a car crash and his brain is put into a robot making him Robotman.

Niles Caulder (Dalton, Timothy Dalton), also known as The Chief, is a top medical scientist who gives hopeless people “a miracle”. He also protects them from themselves and the outside world by keeping them in his house at a remote location.

Back to Cliff, he is the newest member of The Chief’s home, even though he has been there for years. The Chief needs to get him used to his new body which is very stiff. He will not be able to do it alone, so he will need help from his other residents.

Rita Farr (April Bowlby) is an actress from the ’50s. She had an accident on set that turns her into Elasti-Woman because she can stretch her body. Because she was an act-tress, she is so over her new home and the people in it.

Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer) was a dashing pilot living a double life. He wanted to hide from his troubles so he went flying as much as possible. One day he flies into negative energy and his plane crashes. He survives, but his whole body suffered catastrophic burns. Not only that, he now shoots out energy from his chest which is why we call the man covered in bandages Negative Man.

Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero) got her name because she lives up to it. She has 64 different personalities and each comes with its own ability. You know never know who she is going to be so it would be wise to watch what you say around.

Robotman and her hit it off even though she says some pretty awful sh!t to him. Actually, they all hit it off. So swell, that they decide to leave their compound and go into town. It starts off innocent enough until one of them loses their control and the town is pretty much destroyed. Proving to them they should stay home.

Which catches us up to the second episode. They are in what is left in town and one of them goes missing. Luckily, we get a new member to join their patrol just in time. Victor Stone (Joivan Wade) was doing an experiment when something goes horribly wrong. The explosion kills his mom and half of him. You see Cyborg is now half human and half machine.

He is not like the others and he will inspire them to be more than what they are. Activating the Doom Patrol in ways they have never be activated before. Is that a good thing? We will find out every Friday.

This is kind of the Deadpool of group superheroes. Yes I know he is Marvel and they are DC, but it is the best comparison I can come up with. Don’t get at mad me. Be happy I at least I knew they were from two different universes. That is good for me.

Back to Doom Patrol, as you can tell this is unlike everything else in the genre. Which is great because it so needed a changeup. Therefore, if you are looking for something fun to watch, look no further than this show. So look it up now!
