TV Review:Batman(TBATB):Fall of the Blue Beetle (spoiler lite)

Okay. They had a hook and I bit, hard.
The Ted Kord version of the Blue Beetle has never been seen in animation due to rights issues springing from the sale of the character to DC from Charlton comics back in the '70's. So, for fans of the character, like your faithful Republibot 2, when I saw that the character would be featured in the new Batman (The Brave and The Bold) episode-- I was really enthusiastic...

Well, I was until we got to the middle of this episode.

TV(non)Review:Smallville:Bulletproof

I'd love to say I loved this episode.
But thanks to technical and logistic problems, I can't.
Our CW affiliate had sound issues, and the closed captioning appeared and disappeared so fast that even I, Evelyn Woods graduate that I am, could not read the dialog.

  • I think the Martian Manhunter was shot
  • I think that they introduced Dan Turpin into the Smallville universe. (Ironic, since Darkseid possessed him in the Comics, and now he's worm-food. Does this mean we'll see Darkseid next season?)

Thoughts on the Premiere Episode of Lost, Season Five

Charlie W. Starr's picture

There are two kinds of lost fanatics: on the one hand, those who delve into its mysteries with Sherlock Holmsian passion in order to unlock the island’s secrets, and on the other hand, me. When I was first asked to write a chapter for an anthology on Lost a few years ago I decided to become the champion of the theory that no one else would champion: that the key to getting Lost is staying lost—that surrender to the joy of mystery is what makes Lost such a joy.

TV REVIEW: LOST: "The Lie" (Season 5 episode 2)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Tonight's cavalcade of Lost-related whimsey continues with a super-secret bonus episode that I didn't even know was coming. (I've been distracted lately). What's better than a season premier of Lost? Getting an unexpected bonus episode immediately afterwards! Ka-Ching! If you want to read a review of the season premier, you can do that here http://www.republibot.com/content/tv-review-lost-because-you-left but I'm going to assume you've already done that and just move on here.

TV REVIEW: LOST: "Because You Left"

Republibot 3.0's picture

The amazing thing, for me, is that Lost always manages to hit the ground running. On the face of it, the show would seem to have a lot of strikes against it - massive cast and plot erosion, an incomprehensible storyline, deliberately fractured storytelling, a sprawling cast that changes at a whim, shrinking season episode orders, not to mention the fact that after four years, we still don't really know what the heck is going on.
