4.5/5 100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4 - Hey, World! (TV Episode) [DC's Legends of Tomorrow] wins on its turbocharged charm, its constant, unbridled glee, not because of intricate plotting or delicate, nuanced characters. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4 - The Eggplant, The Witch & The Wardrobe (TV Episode) Legends continues to be appointment television in a streaming era. Even when it's not firing on all cylinders, it's still a wonderfully entertaining hour of TV. - Den of Geek EDIT

4.5/5 100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4 - The Getaway (TV Episode) This episode works in tandem with last week's, warts and all, to tell a fun story that's surprisingly moving and crystallizes the rest of season four's conflict. - Den of Geek EDIT

83% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4 - Lucha de Apuestas (TV Episode) The show has dropped its first outright dud of the year with the first episode back. - Den of Geek EDIT

4.5/5 No Score Yet Young Justice: Outsiders - Evolution (TV Episode) It pretty much has everything: deep comic continuity cuts up the wazoo; Starro; the Outsiders being insanely charming; awesome action; Scandal Savage's badass mullett... - Den of Geek EDIT

3.5/5 No Score Yet Young Justice: Outsiders - Private Security (TV Episode) This episode is mostly transitional, and while it's got a lot to like, there are a couple of issues that might point to a bigger, structural problem that may develop. - Den of Geek EDIT

4.5/5 No Score Yet Young Justice: Outsiders - Away Mission (TV Episode) So far, Young Justice: Outsiders has wasted no time reminding us of how good the show is in every way. - Den of Geek EDIT

No Score Yet Young Justice: Outsiders - Rescue Op (TV Episode) Young Justice: Outsiders has yet to let the fan service get in the way of making a really good episode, and that continues with "Rescue Op." - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 No Score Yet The Gifted: Season 2 - Memento (TV Episode) Unfortunately for everyone involved (including The Gifted), very few of the characters made defensible choices coming out of those reevaluations. - Den of Geek EDIT

94% Young Justice: Outsiders (TV, 2010) This is a bunch of great stuff that makes me look forward to the rest of the season. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 No Score Yet The Gifted: Season 2 - Enemy of My Enemy (TV Episode) It's a bit much to see Andy complain about racist demagogues on television news channels from his show on the Fox Broadcasting Network, but what do I know. - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4 - Legends of To-Meow-Meow (TV Episode) It sucks that Legends of Tomorrow had their first real miss as their midseason finale. However, it says something about Legends that their worst episode of the season is still so entertaining. - Den of Geek EDIT

100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4 - Hell No, Dolly! (TV Episode) Yet with all those ridiculous happenings, we still have an episode where notorious scummy antihero John Constantine can almost make me cry real, genuine tears. - Den of Geek EDIT

4.5/5 100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 4 - Tender Is the Nate (TV Episode) The heart and secret message behind the show is the fact that it's largely a show about well-adjusted-ish people being nice to each other. - Den of Geek EDIT

2/5 75% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 3 - Zari (TV Episode) You start to run into walls that the premise puts up, and those are sometimes insurmountable. - Den of Geek EDIT

3.5/5 78% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 3 - Aruba-Con (TV Episode) This episode still had the strong core of great relationships and solid acting that they spun the jokes around. But they pushed pretty hard on the "loveable screw ups" angle, almost a little too hard, which keeps the episode from being perfect. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 90% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Aruba (TV Episode) They managed to integrate the complex, absurd plots into the characterization they were already doing well, and the amplification effect between the two made it the best comic book show on TV. - Den of Geek EDIT

100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Doomworld (TV Episode) Legends of Tomorrow delivered the best episode of the season, if not its entire run, with "Doomworld." - Den of Geek EDIT

3.5/5 73% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Fellowship of the Spear (TV Episode) Even though the episode was a step down from its usual quality, there are enough talented actors and enough great characters that its lows aren't really that low. - Den of Geek EDIT

4.5/5 100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Moonshot (TV Episode) Legends of Tomorrow delivered another excellent episode, and continues to make its case for the best superhero show around. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 91% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Land of the Lost (TV Episode) This episode continues Legends of Tomorrow's strong recent run, and sets it up as maybe the best DC TV show on the air right now. - Den of Geek EDIT

5/5 89% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - The Legion of Doom (TV Episode) This was easily the best episode of the season, and maybe of the entire series, and it's the fourth really strong episode in a row. - Den of Geek EDIT

100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Raiders of the Lost Art (TV Episode) It was a really effective, entertaining episode, and one that I hope sets the tone for the rest of the season. - Den of Geek EDIT

3.5/5 75% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - The Chicago Way (TV Episode) All in all, this was a good episode, and a good way to end the first half of the season. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Invasion! (TV Episode) It was an awesome way to close out the crossover. It hit every emotional moment and cool nerd beat that the shows needed to make the crossover probably the best thing the Arrowverse has put on television yet. - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Outlaw Country (TV Episode) Entertaining fluff, but not "holy crap I gotta get home for tonight's Legends" anymore. - Den of Geek EDIT

4.5/5 78% Supergirl: Season 2 - Star-Crossed (TV Episode) Ultimately, the episode works because this cast is really, really strong. Melissa Benoist is cranked up to 11 for almost the whole thing - bubbly without being twee, determined, but believably hurt. - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 88% Arrow: Season 5 - Who Are You? (TV Episode) This was a solid but unspectacular episode. It moved the main plot of the season along, gave us some good Felicity, Oliver and Laurel moments, and set up next week as being very interesting. - Den of Geek EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 31, 2018
4/5 85% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 - Left Behind (TV Episode) This is the one that did the best job fusing the storyarc of the season, the plot propulsion of a single episode, and character development that has to this point been the best part of the show. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 80% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 - Night of the Hawk (TV Episode) There are a metric ton of Back to the Future jokes in the episode. No surprise, given how openly nerdy everyone has already proven to be. - Den of Geek EDIT

3.5/5 85% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 - Marooned (TV Episode) This week's episode is jam-packed with sass. - Den of Geek EDIT

76% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 - Star City 2046 (TV Episode) It was probably the most anticipated episode of the entire season, and it might be my least favorite episode since the premiere. - Den of Geek EDIT

3/5 93% Supergirl: Season 1 - Strange Visitor From Another Planet (TV Episode) Calista Flockhart's Cat and Benoist in particular are the anchors that the best episodes of this show are built around, and "Strange Visitor" is no different. - Den of Geek EDIT

3.5/5 100% Supergirl: Season 1 - Human for a Day (TV Episode) I think it speaks well of the show that despite having some really solid special effects and.... fight sequences, the best part of it so far has been stripping their lead of her powers and making her deal with a crisis without them. - Den of Geek EDIT

No Score Yet The Gifted: Season 1 - rX (TV Episode) For such a new show, one of its biggest strengths is how completely thought out the world is. - Den of Geek EDIT

2.5/5 80% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 3 - Freakshow (TV Episode) "Freakshow" was a little bit of a mess of an episode, and the show stopped having fun alongside the characters and started, a little bit, having fun at their expense. - Den of Geek EDIT

61% Powerless: Season 1 (TV, 2017) Everyone in Powerless deserves better than this. So does the audience. - Den of Geek EDIT
