    Hmmm. I’d like the bat-ears on the mask to be further back on her head, but that’s a pretty mild quibble.

    I thought I saw a pic where she had curly hair. The star IIRC was saying something about how it was good that the new Batwoman would be recognizable as a Black woman in silhoutte.

    She's since said that look in the pic is pre-upgrade, and we haven't seen the final version.

    Verb conjugation is not their strong point.

    I have embraced "they/them/their" as the pronouns used where the antecedent's sex is either irrelevant or not specified.




    Or did you want it to be there? :mad:

    Isn't Wonder Girl usually an anchor baby for Zeus or somesuch?

    Wonder Girl is one of those characters with a horribly, horribly convoluted backstory. She could be a friggin' Sasquatch and it'd probably be in continuity somewhere.

    This one is apparently not Donna Troy but a relatively recently created character.

    If it's Cassie Sandsmark, 1996 is hardly "relatively recent".

    The character being latinx may point to an entirely new character though.

    Edit: Ah, OK - they created a "future Wonder Woman" called Yara Flor and the CW series is reworking this as her origin/early years story.

    Yes. It's going to be "Yara Flor", whoever that is.

    Black Lightning is cancelled! :(
    So Painkiller isn't a spinoff, it's a replacement.
    If the pilot even goes to series that is.

    I have some strong mixed feelings about this.

    On the one hand, I wanted the show to succeed and thrive not just on the general principle that I want all geek shows to survive, but because it was willing to take some risks and because it was so unapologetically Black. I liked the characters, the actors, the fact that it didn't gloss over issues having to do with race and class,

    On the other hand, I have to admit that I didn't follow the show with the same level of effort/interest that I did the rest of the CWverse. I think I still have about half the last BL season to go, whereas I have seen pretty much every episode of everything else. I can't point to a particular reason for that in my case. And if BL hasn't resonated with me, someone in the target audience of middle-aged blerds, I can't see it doing well in the 18-34 demo advertisers crave.

    At least they have been given enough of a head's up that the writers can hopefully do a truly excellent final season and the actors and crew will have time to land on their feet.

    Yeah, I had to force myself through last season.
    The town being literally occupied by fascists was too fucking bleak and depressing.

    Q: name a TV show that your first impression is "there's no way that could possibly work" and yet it totally does.

    A. Pennyworth.

    Watching this weeks ep it clicked for me, rightly or wrongly this guy is as much "Young James Bond" as he is "Young Alfred Pennyworth"

    Jack Bannon is an absolute fucking gem - I would be kinda disappointment if he's not up for the Bond role in 10-15 years (and hell I'm not even much of a Bond fan it's just that in the same way that I thought Gotham's proto-Joker was so good he basically forced his way into the "who should play the Joker in such and such project" discussion, Bannon is just screaming "I got yer James Bond right here bitches").

    and the worldbuilding and writing and so forth is just very well done.

    You know, what would probably have made more sense with Batwoman would be to have Sophie discover Kate's missing and take over the mantle of the Bat. After all, Sophie has the skills, knows Kate and Batwoman and is a position to either deduce that secret or be brought in by Luke/Mary. And she could fairly easily be written as wanting to salute Kate/solve her disappearance.

    I will reserve judgment as to how they ultimately do explain the new Batwoman. I can't see an organic way that she gets brought into the Bat-Fam.

    Well, you see, Commissioner Gordon had a daughter with his side-chick and when her half-sister goes missing, she takes up the mantle of Batwoman to not only find her missing sister but to finally win her father's love.

    New Batwoman was alright, but there was a preachy speech by her that was about the most cringeworthy thing I think I've ever seen on TV. I thought I turned into an incel YouTube fanboi watching it in that I wanted to parrot phrases like "virtue signalling," "woke" and "SJW."
