So this week's musical episode was a big ol' pile of gratuitous dumb, but at least it was a more typical, traditional kind of dumb. Thank fuck they only wrote almost intentionally ironic dumbfuck original song? The rest of it was gratuiitous cameos by any Arrowverse actor who can carry half a tune and NON STOP SHITTY ACCENTS. And if any character in DC history has suffered more from being turned into a blandly handsome CW Type than the Music Meister. But hey, at least I got to see a tiny bit of Bad Makeup Martian Manhunter. But I also had to see the horrible, horrible ending that can eat all the dicks in the multiverse.
OH SHIT OH SHIT OH SHIT THAT SHITTY ENDING WASN'T THE ENDING THERE WAS A WHOLE OTHER SHITTY ENDING WITH A SECOND SHITTY ORIGINAL SONG NO NO NO GODDAMMIT.
You don't know how much I was looking forward to this just for the singer's alone. Every Dr. Who fan knows Barrowman has been a West End fixture since the 90s and even if you don't know who Victor Garber and Jesse Martin are, you'd know they're Broadway legends just by the number of times they were on Law & Order. And what do we get? Not one but two lame endings and yet another celestial being who has nothing better to do than help people who really don't need help cause, you know, they're the most powerful people in the world. Also, I hope whoever wrote the Super Friend song never sees sunshine again.ReplyDelete
I knew about Gerber, and in fact had to be in the room while Cathy watched YouTube videos of him in Godspell.ReplyDelete
I could write a fucking thesis on what was wrong with that Super Friends song.
