TV Review: THE MESSENGERS

by T. Mack

 Messengers

The Messengers is a show with potential. Sadly, it will never see that potential fulfilled. The series premiered on the CW network in April of 2015 and was cancelled less than a month later, though all episodes were aired. The show is now on Netflix to view and I, for one, am sorry it will not have the opportunity to become as great as it could definitely have been.

One Last Self-Indulgence: SUNDAY FUNDAY

I’ve used this week’s rotation (Monday’s “Quotable”, Wednesday’s “Geek Chic” and today’s “Sunday Funday”) to indulge in a bit of wallowing over my feelings for ***SPOILER ALERT*** the recent demise of **END ALERT*** “Olicity” on the CW show, Arrow. And I’m sorry about that… sort of. But on the other hand, I’m totally not. Because this is my site and I can geek out about whatever I want… even if it’s the fictional relationship of two people I don’t know that gives me more feels than is reasonable or rational. So with that in mind, here’s my last indulgence: a fan-made video of Olicity looks, smiles, declarations and other special moments set to the soft, sad, beautiful voice of Ed Sheeran.

Geek Chic: SHIPPING OLICITY

by T. Mack

In case you didn’t know, allow me to inform you that I ship Olicity… hard. After three seasons of dancing around each other, Oliver and Felicity (of the CW show Arrow) finally got it together and actually got together. The current fourth season has been one of ups and downs for the newly formed couple, but they kept things moving forward despite the hiccups. Recently, however, the couple has hit a wall. To be honest, it’s got me a bit in my feelings. The show comes on tonight and I’m not expecting resolution for the current issue. I have a strong and gnawing feeling that the resolution I want may be slow in coming… like “not during this season” slow. So, to show my support for the relationship, here are a couple of fun Olicity shipper items for today’s Geek Chic. Continue reading

While the MCU has dominated the movie market with the most stellar superhero films since ever, DC has managed to have a terrific presence on network television. Shows like Arrow and The Flash, both on the CW, as well as Supergirl on CBS have been well-received by critics and audiences. DC is working to expand this successful empire by introducing more heroes and setting up spin-offs and companion shows to its established roster. Last night, the Arrow/Flash spin-off, Legends of Tomorrow, premiered on the CW. The show promises a wilder ride than either of its predecessors, but is the energy sustainable?  Continue reading
