Five stars from me. No question. The fact that they were able to genuinely shock me with some of the things that happened is reason enough for me to love this but there were so many great moments. I can't wait for this show to come back next fall.

This looks like the most bland and uninteresting thing I've seen coming out of this new wave of comic book shows. No thanks.

This is literally devastating to me. I loved this show. The only comic book show that tops it is Daredevil but they can hardly be compared. There is so much story potential for Constantine. The people working on the show have a real appreciation for the source material and I think if someone else picks the show up, we could see an even greater second season. I just hope another network picks it up. Even if it is just one season, I need more Constantine.

There are certainly legitimate criticisms of Age of Ultron (Hulk/Black Widow romance was forced, Hawkeye's family, misuse of Quicksilver/his early death, somewhat Deus Ex type solution to overall conflict) but MANY people have taken it way too far. I really enjoyed the movie overall but it was only able to claw its way into my 5th spot of the MCU movies for the reasons listed above. Still, I love Joss Whedon and the attacks directed at him are ridiculous. He created Buffy the Vampire Slayer which consisted of NUMEROUS well written and powerful female characters, Dollhouse starred a female character, and his female characters in Firefly were all very well written and vital. Anyone who is calling Whedon a misogynist is simply being an ignorant moron. Criticize all you want but false personal attacks are uncalled for.

Anyway, sorry for the rant but people are pissing me off with all of this. As a side note, I am a feminist through and through so don't blame feminists. Blame the actual people, regardless of their misguided beliefs.

I am almost finished reading the second book in The Strain Trilogy and it's a fun read. Season 1 was quite a disappointment. Being a giant fan of Del Toro and having read the first book I went in with sky high expectations. Unfortunately Del Toro wasn't all that heavily involved and the writing/acting in the middle of the season was severely lacking. A lot was changed from the book as well, and not for the better, which lead to some frustration. Still, this preview was really cool and I am hoping Del Toro will have more involvement this time around which will lead to a much better experience. Season 1 had its share of cool moments. Now they just need to expand that to a full season.

Oh, and Fish's ambiguous end is because Jada was only signed for 1 season. Ending it that way allows for a potential return if they are able to sign her again but if not then she can just be dead. Personally, I hope she's dead. Her character was insufferable imo.

This was a 2 star episode in my opinion. I hated the stuff with Barbara. If anyone watches Sleepy Hollow, it felt very similar to them turning Katrina "evil" in that show at the end of the season. Just like that, it didn't feel earned and ultimately, in my opinion at least, felt more like they gave up on making her an interesting character and decided to have her be a killer instead. It's lazy and poor writing. On top of that, there were so many plot threads that were just thrown together and various character choices and interactions, as is the norm on Gotham, were nonsensical. See Ducey13's comment above for further elaboration on that because that comment reflects many of my own thoughts as well. I think the only part of the episode that I liked was the Nygma breakdown. I'm neutral about Bruce finding the hidden entrance. It could be cool. As of now there isn't really any way to know.

So, and again I will re-iterate that this my OPINION, I felt like that 80% of Gotham this season was pretty bad. That 20% was why I kept tuning in but that likely won't be enough to get me back next season. If I hear positive word of mouth (like AoS, which has really done a 180 this season), then I may return but as of now, I have zero interest in more Gotham.

Glad to see this get a good review! Fight Club is one of my favorite movies and this is something I was equal parts excited and nervous about.

Everyone looks fantastic here except Harley. Really wish they would have gone with a more BTAS look for her but the look makes sense when paired with Leto's Joker. I'm pretty pumped for this.

@inferiorego: I'm not one of the people overly mad about what you said regarding Superman but I will say that it is an understandable reaction from his fans. Plus, and I mean absolutely no disrespect by this, calling Superman two-dimensional is a lazy critique that is often made by people who have never read any of his comics. If that is how you feel, then you are entitled to that opinion, but maybe people are especially upset that you said that because they wouldn't expect that specific critique coming from you in particular.
