- Not much to comment on this year. Personally, there were highs and lows and while the year wasn't great, it could have been worse. Landing the temp job in October was nice. I've really clicked with my co-workers. We're all such big geeks.

- I officially finished 9 knitting projects. By officially, I mean it's a project on my Raverly page. There were a bunch of small items I made for a friend so she could sell them on her website. I probably could have finished more projects, but I got super unmotivated towards the end of the year. As for what's coming next year, I have plans to knit a Newt Scamander scarf for a friend's cosplay. This should be a fun one. He's assembling a pretty bad ass Newt cosplay so I hope the scarf is up to his standards once it's done.

- I also read 69 books this year. Up a whopping 10 books from last year. It helps that I had a lot of free time this year. Looking back on my list, I seemed to have finished a lot of book series. I completed the Russell Quant mystery series, the I Am Number Four series, and the Temeraire series. I'm sad to see Temeraire end, but at the heart of the narrative is a war, so that can't stretch on forever. I'm still holding out for a TV miniseries from Peter Jackson. Russell Quant was a fun and zippy mystery series set in Saskatoon, so that was entertaining reading. Thank god the I Am Number Four series is done. It was kind of a fun read, but the writing and the characters really bugged me. I know, I could have stopped reading at any time, but after you've invested yourself into a few books, you kind of feel this obligation to reach the end.

I didn't start too many new series this year. For some reason, I've kept reading this really dull knitting themed cozy mystery series. The characters are so one note and the action is so forced and the author repeats herself a lot when she's describing things, and on top of that, I don't think she knows how to knit. So why do I keep reading? I guess it's nice to have some fluff to fall back on after you've finished a particularly heavy book. There are also some YA series that I started, but none of them are really worth mentioning.

The last book I read this year was The Well of Lost Plots, book three of the Thursday Next series. These books are so damn imaginative. Thursday spends all of her time in the Book World in this one and Jasper Fforde puts a wonderful spin on how books are created and assembled. It's strange that no one has expressed interest in making the Thursday Next series a TV show or something. Or maybe it would be hard to pull off due to the various rights involved with using well known book characters.

- Things to look forward to in the new year: I don't know, actually. I haven't made any firm plans. It'd be nice to get back to Cardiff before the Doctor Who Experience shuts down.

TV show wise we have Sherlock season four and Doctor Who season ten and The Expanse season two. Sherlock starts tomorrow, The Expanse February 1, and Doctor Who probably some time in April. Ooh, I do believe iZombie is back in March. Yay! Something to look forward to each month.

On the video game front, Mass Effect Andromeda and Red Dead Redemption 2 are coming! Can't wait to revisit these worlds.

- Well, that's that. So long and good riddance, 2016.
I keep thinking it's Saturday simply because Doctor Who was on today. :-) Too bad the episode was, well, meh.

Spoilers for Doctor Who, "The Return of Doctor Mysterio" )

At least we got a Coming Soon trailer. You don't get a great sense of what's coming, but hey, at least it's new footage!

Vauge speculation for the Coming Soon trailer )

Wait, is this Moffat's last Christmas special? Not exactly an example of one of his best, but these things are hit and miss. Maybe his Sherlock episode will be better.
- I've caught the cold that's going around the office. :-P I feel better today, but yesterday I was just ready to go home and sleep, which I did once we finished at noon. At least I have some time off to rest up.

- I was lazy and got behind on Class, which just goes to show how little I cared about it. That's not to say it was a completely horrible show, but it never caught my fancy like Doctor Who did. Maybe it was the characters. I don't think I grew attached to any of them. Angsty teen problems just don't interest me. And where the hell are they going with the show?

Spoilers for Class 1x08, "The Lost" )

Any word on whether Class was renewed? Maybe the BBC needs to resurrect Torchwood instead...

- Christmas tomorrow! And, by extension, a new episode of Doctor Who!! After a year of no Who, I'm willing to take anything. I haven't watched the trailer or the scene they released for Children in Need, so I'm going into the special pretty ignorant of the plot. There's something about superheroes in this one? All I know for certain is that one of the guest stars is a Canadian actor, so yay! I really hope there's a Coming Soon trailer, because they should have enough finished footage to give us a small glimpse of the new season.

- Speaking of Doctor Who Christmas specials, Space is airing all of them tomorrow (except for "The End of Time" for whatever reason). Thank you, Space. I think I'll just chill out and watch the marathon until it's time to head to my sister's place for dinner.
TV shows are pretty much on a break for the winter. I thought I would get a few thoughts down.

Spoilers for Supergirl season two )

Spoilers for The Flash 3x09, "The Present" )

Spoilers for Arrow 5x09, "What We Leave Behind" )

Spoilers for Legends of Tomorrow 2x08, "The Chicago Way" )

And jumping comic book universes, over on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ...

Spoilers for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season four )

I'm actually glad that my TV shows are on a winter hiatus. It gives me time to watch other things I've been meaning to watch. But soon we will have new Doctor Who and Sherlock to watch. :-)
So the CW finally had its mega crossover. Will they do one every year? Probably. I mean, how can you not, right? I just hope the next one is a proper four show crossover. Supergirl kicked things off in a way, but at the same time, not really. Her episode was more of a teaser.

And that's my main gripe. Each part felt like it was an episode of whatever show was airing on each night rather than being one continuous episode of the CW Superfriends. For one week, they could have dropped some of the B plot stuff. On the other hand, I can see why they had to include some of the ongoing stuff from each show. It probably helped with scheduling and it enabled the writers to fill out the full 45 minutes. Plus, Arrow had it's 100th episode thrown in there, too, so they had to work around that.

With that said, what we got was still awesome. I think the sheer delight of seeing all of the heroes together outweighs some of the weaker plot points.

I'm going to break down the episodes by show; it's just easier that way.

Spoilers for Supergirl 2x08, "Medusa" )

Spoilers for The Flash 3x08, "Invasion!" )

Spoilers for Arrow 5x08, "Invasion!" )

Spoilers for Legends of Tomorrow 2x07, "Invasion!" )

I think, overall, the crossover was a delight to watch. Did it make sense a lot of the time? No, but it's a comic book show, so it's a given that some stuff won't make sense. I don't know how they're going to top this one next season. What's bigger than an alien invasion? Maybe they'll tackle the infamous "Crisis on Infinite Earths"? It'd be a nice way to merge Earth-38 with Earth-1.
- The local comic book expo announced Nathan Fillion as the first guest for next year. He was here three years ago, but I'm not going to say no to more Nathan Fillion. :-) The expo claims he really liked it the last time he was here and has wanted to come back ever since. Now that he has all of this free time, he can certainly do the con circuit. Plus, he can go visit his family up in Edmonton once the con is over.

I kind of want to believe that this is a lead up to a Firefly reunion. 2017 is the 15th anniversary since the show premiered. I don't think many of the cast are working right now so it wouldn't be that hard to gather them all together for a weekend. I'm only short three more signatures for my Serenity comic! If I can get the rest in one fell swoop, I will be super happy.

- I checked out the first episode of the animated reconstruction of "The Power of the Daleks" and it's okay. I can't imagine watching the rest of the serial like this. Like, I don't mind the odd animated episode here and there, especially if it's filling out an incomplete serial, but if you're going to do the whole thing, you really need better animation. I know, the BBC budget for this isn't huge, but something a bit more smooth would have been nice. The movement of the characters feels a little stilted or jerky at times and other times they're just standing there, not doing much of anything. Oh well, just more incentive to find more missing episodes.

- I also checked out the first episode of The Grand Tour aka The Show That Isn't Top Gear But Is Totally Top Gear But Just With More Money. It's more of the same when Clarkson, May, and Hammond were hosting Top Gear, and that's just fine. I really only watched Top Gear for the fun and weird antics the guys got up to. I do miss The Stig, though. He mostly just drove cars around the track, but when they did allow him to do other things, like have him riding the Tube in a four way race across London, he was amusing to watch.

- They finally started casting for the new Star Trek series! Michelle Yeoh will be playing a starship captain. She won't be the captain of the Discovery from the sound of things, so it's probably just a recurring role, but that's still cool. An Asian captain! I don't think we've really had one since we saw Sulu as the captain of the Excelsoir. Hopefully this leads to more casting announcements. They really need to get their butts moving if they want to make the premiere date of May next year.

- And Happy Whoniversary (yesterday)! Just over a month until a new episode!
- I had some free time so I decided to watch the first episode of season three of Star Trek: the infamous "Spock's Brain". People always say it's the worst episode of TOS, but honestly, it wasn't that bad. Granted, I haven't seen every episode of the series yet, but when compared to what I've seen so far, I can say that there are worst episodes than "Spock's Brain".

Yes, the main point of the plot involves an alien race removing Spock's brain so they can use it to run the systems of their underground city, and yes, Spock's body lurches around with a fetching motor control device on his head, but it's not the weirdest plot ever. How often do we see stories where humans are used like batteries to power something? I think the episode gets a bad rap because everyone just giggles when they hear the words "Spock's Brain" and it's hard to be objective. Seriously, I wanted to laugh each time the phrase "Spock's brain" was used in dialogue.

This episode definitely falls into the category of "so bad it's good" rather than "oh my god, that was so boring I wanted to rip my eyes out".

- I finally got around to finishing my Jessica Jones infinity scarf, so I'll be going as her to my friend's Halloween party. Such an easy costume; I love it. I'll definitely have to wear it again during one of the days of the comic book expo.

- I've been working a temp job for the past couple of weeks and my manager said people totally dress up on Halloween, so I get to go into work in costume on Monday. That'll be fun. This will be the first time I've worn a costume to work. I'm thinking I'll go with my Fourth Doctor cosplay, since it's quirky enough that it doesn't look like my usual work clothes, but it's also comfortable to sit in. My co-workers and I have chatted about Doctor Who, so they will totally recognize the outfit.

- I've been so busy, I never got around to writing about the rest of Luke Cage. Sadly, I didn't enjoy it as much as Jessica Jones or season one of Daredevil. It was definitely a slow burner. Even towards the end, I didn't feel a huge sense of urgency.

Spoilers for Luke Cage season one )

Iron Fist is up next and then The Defenders. I'm really looking forward to The Defenders. DC has had some great success teaming up the Berlantiverse superheroes, so it's about time Marvel got in on that action.
Space is nice enough to air Class in Canada so I didn't even have to watch the first two episodes through my usual means. I will freely admit that I was only mildly excited to watch this show. It's an unnecessary spin-off, but it's also new content in the Whoverse, so I'll take what I can get right now. I'll keep watching the rest of the season, but it won't be with great anticipation.

Spoilers for Class 1x01 and 1x02 )

At least we have something to watch until the Christmas Special. And if anyone is curious about Patrick Ness, I can't say this enough times: Go read The Rest of Us Just Live Here. It's also about kids attending a high school that's plagued with supernatural and sci-fi threats and it's the best YA novel ever.

All four CW superhero shows are back so I'd thought I would post some thoughts:

Spoilers for Supergirl 2x01, "The Adventures of Supergirl" )

Spoilers for The Flash 3x01 and 3x02 )

Spoilers for Arrow 5x01 and 5x02 )

Spoilers for Legends of Tomorrow 2x01, "Out of Time" )

Whew, that's a lot of DC content. Add on Gotham and Lucifer and DC is killing it on TV. I really need some Arrowverse icons...
- I have access to Netflix for the short term, allowing me to watch Luke Cage without resorting to "alternative means". I have to say, Netflix is a dangerous thing. So many shows you could watch. No wonder people like to binge watch; everything is all right there. To my great delight, all of the Star Trek shows are there, so I can potentially watch all of TOS season three without having to get the DVDs out from the library. I also saw that they have many of the old Power Ranger shows, VR Troopers, and Beetleborgs, all which made up a large part of my youth. It's very tempting to see if they are as cheesy as I remember.

In the mean time, I'm slowly making my way through Luke Cage. I'm not loving it as much as Jessica Jones, but it could be the pacing of the season. The arc feels very much like a slow burner. I do appreciate that they worked in Luke's classic superhero costume from the comics. That costume is pure 1970s, so kudos to the writers for finding a somewhat organic way of working it in.

- I started reading a really cute web comic called Shattered Starlight. The story follows a young woman who used to be something akin to a Sailor Scout from Sailor Moon, only it's ten years after her heyday. Now she has to deal with day to day things, like work and rent, and resist the urge to use her magical powers (one of which is an astral hockey stick!). It's set in Montreal, which is cool, and that was part of the reason that I started to read it. It's a work in progress, with the artist posting a page every week, so you'll easily work your way through the archive of pages, but I think it's well worth the wait to see what's coming next.

- The Flash and Arrow are back this week, followed by Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow next week. The CW released an awesome promo for all four shows:


This makes me very excited for the giant crossover they have planned for later in the season. I know the tone won't be exactly the same, but it's still great to see Kara finally interacting with the rest of the superheroes.
Another season of Star Trek done! I quite liked season two. There was a good mix of really good episodes, good episodes, okay episodes, and down right bad episodes.

Things I never knew or noticed before until now:

- The hand phasers actually slot into the top of the phaser pistols. If you look at an actual phaser, you can see that the top bit is a hand phaser. I never noticed that before. It's a cool little detail that they didn't need to have, but someone came up with it anyway.

- Each department has its own unique insignia. Command has the black star in the middle, sciences has the overlapping circles, and engineering has a swirly thing. It's a detail that's lost in the later shows, but it's another example of having extra detail where you necessarily don't need any.

- Scotty is second in command after Spock. TOS featured Kirk, Spock, and Bones so heavily, that you kind of assume that Bones is in the chain of command, but nope, it's Scotty who takes over when Kirk and Spock are both off of the ship.

Review of Star Trek season two, episodes 15-26 (spoilers) )

All right, third season next. I'm going to put this one off for a bit since the new TV season is starting soon. Also, two words. "Spock's Brain".

Happy 50th anniversary Star Trek!

I've been making my way through season two of Star Trek at a much slower rate than season one, so I'm only half way through the season, but I figured that today would be a good day to get my thoughts down. I know, "The Man Trap" aired September 8, 1966, but it actually aired two days earlier in Canada on September 6, 1966, so as a Canadian, I'm celebrating early. :-)

What I've noticed so far is how they emphasized the characters this season. First season, the main focus was on the trio of Kirk, Spock, and McCoy, but this season, you see more interaction with the other main crew. Scotty's had more to do, Uhura doesn't just sit there and say "Hailing frequencies open", and Chekov, while introduced this season, has more personality to him than the random navigators they had come through the bridge. I feel like Sulu hasn't had much, but George Takei was absent for a bit while filming The Green Berets so maybe that has something to do with it. I guess it reflects how life would be aboard a starship. As you spend more time with people, your relationships grow deeper and everyone gets a lot closer.

Review of Star Trek season two, episodes 1-14 (spoilers I guess) )

I feel like the majority of the TOS episodes that I had seen before this re-watch were from season two. Maybe this was TOS' best season. Looking ahead to season three, none of the episode titles look familiar.

After attending the Star Trek 50th anniversary con, I was left with a desire to re-watch every Star Trek show, so I got the first season of the original series from the library. I managed to watch 29 episodes (30 if you include the failed pilot "The Cage") in a week, and man, I'm totally not doing that again. I don't know how people binge watch shows. Just sitting there for hours started to drive me nuts.

Funny thing about TOS. I've seen some episodes, but that number before this re-watch probably amounted to less than half; a quarter maybe if I'm generous. On the other hand, I've seen every episode of the other four shows. So why the discrepancy? I think my opinion of TOS was shaped by the general impression non-Trekkers have of the show. When I thought of Star Trek, I pictured cheesy special effects and over-the-top acting and really weird costumes and who the hell wants to watch that? Thankfully, watching all of Classic Doctor Who gave me a better appreciation for 1960s sci fi, so I approached this re-watch with an open mind. And I'm glad I did.

Yes, Star Trek had a small budget (forcing them to film on very Earth looking sets sometimes), but it had big ideas and that's the most important part. It's easy to assume that all of the stories had horribly fakey science with no plot structure at all, but really, the majority of the episodes were human stories in a sci fi setting. That's the element that gets ignored when regular people try to sum it up.

Star Trek season one review (includes 50 year old spoilers) )

I might get around to watching season two, but I can't handle these marathon sessions. Towards the end, I was doing five episodes in a day and that's a lot of Star Trek to sit through.

Still sorting through my photos from the Star Trek con, but in the meanwhile, here's some of the non-Star Trek things that also happened over the weekend.

Marvel's Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. )

Back at the con, they have something called the Signers' Room where some of the guests can set up a table and sell their own photos and do autographs and selfies and generally just meet fans. I wandered in there to check it out and I walked by a table set up for Cas Anvar. He didn't have much set up yet and he wasn't there himself, but he had a sign showing the things he's been in. I noticed he's been in The Expanse and Assassin's Creed: Revelations (but no Star Treks) and moved on before I could really dwell on it.

But then it hit me as I left the room. Cas Anvar is in The Expanse? Wait, that name sounds kind of familiar now... So I dug out my phone and did a quick Google search. And what do you know. Cas Anvar plays Alex on The Expanse! I rushed back to the Signers' Room the first chance I got and Cas was there talking with people. Turns out he was there because he's the reason Kirstie Alley was attending the con. He knows her and talked to his agent and his agent talked to her agent and etc. He ended up getting a table because he has so many genre related things on his filmography.

Meeting Cas Anvar )

Oh yeah, I also bought an old school TARDIS key for my Fourth Doctor cosplay. So yeah, it was a multi-fandom weekend.
- [livejournal.com profile] newnumber6 mentioned he was going to re-watch Sliders and that got me wanting to re-watch, too, so I got my hands on the first season. I probably haven't seen any of these episodes since they aired 20 years ago, but I could remember bits and pieces. Some of the CGI is a bit dodgy, but the premise is still a great one. It's a shame that there aren't more TV shows dealing with alternative worlds. The story possibilities are endless. It'd also be cheaper than a time travel show, as travel is regulated to one time period. So you can have an unfamiliar setting, but you can still have familiar landmarks and technology.

If someone decided to reboot Sliders, I actually wouldn't mind, but it would have to be done right. These days, I think a writer/producer would be inclined to add an overall arc and a big mysterious backstory, which is what brought down the show back in the day. I don't care about aliens who can also slide and an Earth Prime and Quinn being from another Earth that wasn't ours and having a secret brother. Keep it simple. The only arc that should matter is whether the characters find their way back home.

- I finally finished book five of The Expanse series. As the the library didn't have the ebook version, I had to read a hard copy and I swear I read slower when the words are on a page rather than a screen. I guess my eyes are more used to reading off of my phone. Thing is, I prefer reading The Expanse books on my phone as the actual books are thick tomes that don't travel very well in a backpack or a purse. But anyway... I'm caught up! Book six lands in November. It's crazy how they can put out a book every year, but since James S.A. Corey is actually two guys, I can see how the work can go faster.

All of The Expanse books are good, but Nemesis Games was really good. For once, the four POVs weren't split between Holden and three new characters. Every member of the Rocinante crew got to tell their portion of the story and it made the plot more compelling since you know these characters and you really worry when any of them are in trouble. I don't know if book six will follow the same formula. It'd be nice if it did, but that means the crew has to be split up again, and I'm not fond of the idea.

The TV show needs to play catch-up, but if the producers don't want to make a book a season, then that's okay, too. It just means more of the plot will make it onto the screen. The series is chock full of things that shouldn't be overlooked.

- Looks like Space will be airing the new Star Trek series next year. Not to brag, but Canada will be the only place where it won't be behind a pay wall. Thank goodness for Canadian content. Now I won't have to watch the show through "alternative means".

- And Star Trek Beyond is out in theatres this weekend. I'm seeing mixed reviews, which is not great, but I'm still going to see it regardless. If I don't see it opening weekend, I'm totally going to get spoiled on the plot at the Star Trek convention in Las Vegas and I so don't want that to happen.

- Compared to last year's finale of The Flash, this year definitely had higher stakes. But the show keeps going back to one thing:

Spoilers for The Flash 2x23, "The Race of His Life" )

- Arrow also had its finale. One more year of flashbacks to go. Can't wait until the show can devote the entire 45 minutes to the main storyline in the present.

Spoilers for Arrow 4x23, "Schism" )

I now eagerly await the mega crossover. I have high hopes that will be really good, but I will settle for okay as long as they have a lot of geeky comic book moments.

- Totally not a surprise, but the CW is planning a massive crossover for all of the Berlanti-verse shows. A four night event of super heroics. Cue the ice cream gif:


Wild speculation about the mega crossover )

If this crossover happens around episode 8, then that coincides with Arrow's 100th episode and this would be a fine way to celebrate.

- As for Legends of Tomorrow, which had its season finale this week...

Spoilers for Legends of Tomorrow 1x16, "Legendary" )

The CW just needs another DC superhero show on Friday and then DC would have total domination over the schedule. Something for next next season maybe?
- So, that's how they ended Castle?

Spoilers for Castle 8x22, "Crossfire" )

It's funny, but I think this is the first time I was glad that a network cancelled a show. How often do you hear that?

- Damn you, The Flash!

Spoilers for The Flash 2x22, "Invincible" )

- Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. had their finale. After all of the hype...

Spoilers for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 3x21 and 3x22, "Absolution" and "Ascension" )

- I finished an awesome book the other day. The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness. If his name sounds kind of familiar, it's because he's the showrunner/head writer for the Doctor Who spin-off Class. He's the only reason I'm willing to give Class a chance.

Short review for The Rest of Us Just Live Here; no spoilers )

- I also had time to finish the first book in a cozy mystery series (let Wikipedia explain what a cozy mystery is). I usually have no interest in these things since they are absolute fluff, but then I discovered a series that has a knitting theme. A knitting theme! So I had to check it out. Now, I get why cozy mysteries are popular, they're fun and breezy and there's very little violence, but the writing is not great. I had a hard time keeping all of the characters straight because they were so generic. And of course, the main character meets a guy she just can't stand, but darn it if he's handsome and polite and always helping her out. Ugh. I thought the knitting element would be the saving grace, but it's really not. There were knitting patterns at the back, which was kind of cool. I may inflict this series on my book club. I'm sure my friends will enjoy it more.
- Upfronts are going on right now so there's a constant stream of news about new shows for the fall. MCU took another hit as ABC didn't pick up Marvel's Most Wanted, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off with Hunter and Bobbi. The two of them were written out for nothing. Fingers crossed that the writers can figure out a way to write them back in. So the only thing left on the books for the TV side of the MCU is Damage Control, which I think is still in development, and Cloak and Dagger, which is going ahead on Freeform (formerly ABC Family).

I don't think Damage Control has much chance of becoming a series. DC's Powerless on NBC, which got a series pick-up, pretty much has the same premise: a workplace comedy about a company that cleans up after the superheroes. The only difference is the roster of superheroes that cause all of the destruction. I think Marvel is happy with the success of their Netflix shows, so the stuff on network television takes a back seat.

Oh, and Hayley Atwell's new show, Conviction, got a series pick-up. The name of her character? Carter Morrison. Carter! Just rub it in, ABC. I read that the show is going to film in Toronto, so that's the one small upside; Hayley in Canada.

- And they're remaking MacGyver. :-P The pilot got a series pick-up. No thank you. The 1980s version is perfectly cheesy and fun and the stakes were never too high. And the mullet! What will the show be without the signature MacGyver mullet? If they must redo everything, at least keep the science plausible. While some of the stuff Mac came up with it wouldn't work in real life (thank you Mythbusters for testing some of his ingenious lash ups), the ideas had a basis in real science. I hope the writers remember that when trying to get Mac out of a jam. Hmm, I wonder if Richard Dean Anderson will have a cameo...

- One more episode to go for Legends of Tomorrow.

Spoilers for Legends of Tomorrow 1x15, "Destiny" )

- Started my second Fourth Doctor scarf commission last week. My arms and wrists are already getting sore. Maybe I need to do stretches before I start knitting for the day. But I can't wait to finish this thing. I can move on to other projects that are much smaller.
First off, TV show renewals and cancellations:

- Well frak. ABC has cancelled Agent Carter. :-P Damn you! Please move the show to Netflix. I need more Peggy in my life.

- Incidently, ABC also cancelled Castle, which is a good thing since the show was going to suck without Beckett around. I wonder how they'll end the show. I read they filmed an extra scene just in case they didn't get a pick-up. Hopefully no one dies.

- Thankfully, Supergirl got renewed for another season. And it's moving to the CW! Crossovers galore! I think the show is also moving to Vancouver to take advantage of the low Canadian dollar. Makes sense. The Flash can do weekly wonders with a CW budget in Canada, so Supergirl can now follow suit. Now they just need to figure out how to incorporate Kara's world with Earth-1.

Moving on to general TV show thoughts:

- So Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. did have a reference to Captain America: Civil War.

Spoilers for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 3x20, "Emancipation" )

- Kevin Smith's episode of The Flash wasn't bad. I don't think I've ever seen any of his movies, so I don't know what his directorial style is like, but I didn't feel like the tone was out of place. There was a tad more humour, but given the situation, you can't help but joke.

Spoilers for The Flash 2x21, "The Runaway Dinosaur" )

- Oh, there was something from last week's Arrow that bugged me.

Mild spoilers for Arrow 4x20, "Genesis" )

- The description on my PVR for the latest episode of Legends of Tomorrow started off with the words: "Rip and Rory..." I'm sorry. I instantly pictured Rip and, well, Rory from Doctor Who. If you must, please refer to Heat Wave as Mick and not Rory. But this also gives me a germ of an idea for a Doctor Who/Legends of Tomorrow fanfic.
