The Flash: “Null And Annoyed”

Why must you test my love for Danny Trejo, Flash?
This week’s Flash was a bad hour of television with eight really good minutes in it.

Agents of SHIELD: “Inside Voices”

Thank goodness for fun character moments.
I’m not sure how comfortable I am with Agents of SHIELD’s embrace of future-vision predestination in the second half of the season.

Arrow: “The Thanatos Guild / Brothers In Arms”

“This is so out of character for John.” WE KNOW.
I finally realized why I’m enjoying this season of Arrow so little. The people involved are deliberately telling a story I don’t want and don’t care about.

Weekly Wrasslin’ Wroundup (4/9-4/11)

Hey, they called it the Eclipse right off the bat!
OK, the post-Mania week of shows is non-stop EVENTS OF SIGNIFICANCE< so I just need to plow through them.

Lesnar Vs. Reigns: The Coal In The Wrestlemania Stocking

Almost as many F5’s in the ring as there were beach balls in the crowd.
Tights And Fights, which is really the only wrestling podcast anyone needs even if Hal hates Lucha Underground, coined the term “Ice Cream Christmas” to describe what Wrestlemania should be. And I want to expand on the Christmas part of that to try and explain why Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns was such a disaster.

Wrestlemania 34

I didn’t realize I wanted this until it happened.
Fourteen matches. Six plus hours. It’s a test of faith and endurance, but maybe less so this year than most, with a card made up of matches that should, for the most part, deliver on paper.

Takeover: New Orleans

Takeover New Orleans was a hell of a show. Long, too. Probably longer than it needed to be, honestly. But still excellent.
