Voight Being in the Know
The last moments of the Chicago PD midseason finale were so awesome. The ominous car ride Ruzek and Olinsky shared where Al, ever the man of few words, told Ruzek he was like a son to him. The moment when Ruzek realized he messed up and then, BOOM, Voight. I squealed in delight. Good stuff.
Being a Runaway Hit
Runaways every single week! This series had me intrigued from the pilot and everytime I try and guess where the series is headed they pull a 180 on me. It also has great representation and talented young actors, along with familiar faces from popular tv shows we grew up watching. While most Marvel shows have been a bit of a letdown for me, this one keeps me consistently excited to see what is going to happen next. Most of all I care a great deal about all the characters.
Mon-El's New Girl
Mon-El returning... but not to Kara. For every Mon-El hater, there is a Mon-El lover. I fal into the latter category so I was thrilled when they found a way to bring him back. But having him return to Earth and rekindle his relationship would have been too easy so Mon-El returned with a wife. We find out he is from the future and even though Kara has been dealing with the breakup for only seven months, in his time, seven years have passed. The worst part is that his wife is a fan of Kara’s and actually really sweet. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. I have watched many shows with love triangles but never anything like this.
DC's New Shows That Will Be Great
Anything that has had to do with Black Lightning, Krypton, and Titans. Black Lightning is a project that I'm blessed got saved when FOX for whatever silly reason didn't pick it up.
A show like Black Lightning is something that will stand out on so many levels from the other DC shows, and I'm genuinely excited what Salim Akil and Mara Brock Akil, along with their super cast, will deliver with this new show. Krypton, while I wasn't sold on it with its initial announcement (because seriously, why is Superman's grandpa getting his own show?!), but the moment we got the first pieces of footage, I was sold and hooked in, along with the announcements that have been made for the show since then.
Then there is Titans that I could go on about for days, but as the big comic nerd that I'm, I'm excited that this group is being adapted for serialized TV. With talents like Geoff Johns involved and the tremendous cast they have assembled, I'm excited to see this iconic group come to life.
12 Monkeys Three-Night Binge-A-Thon
While I would have preferred a regular 12 Monkeys experience because there is so much material to savor and talk about, the binge-a-thon make 12 Monkeys Season 3 a friggin' whirlwind of excitement. Some of the rougher moments might have come off easier if we'd had time to process them, but then the wackiness of the whole picture would have been lost. It was certainly crazy and exciting as it played out!!
Wrap-Ups for Canceled Series
The endings of Frequency and No Tomorrow on The CW Seed. The CW promised online endings to two shows that really need them if they were canceled and they delivered. Little things like that can be a big deal, and it gave closure to both shows. If all networks would offer this wonderful service, viewers might be more willing to invest in new series.
