DC's Legends of Tomorrow: "The Legion of Doom" Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.
It’s been pretty clear for most of this season that Legends of Tomorrow has become the best of the various Arrow-verse shows. But based on the show’s recent track record, there’s a strong case to be made for labeling it the best current superhero series in general, even counting Marvel’s Netflix projects. “The Legion of Doom” is a terrific showcase for the all those things Legends does so well, from great character dynamics to comedy to its ability to build on the dense tapestry that is the DC Universe.
As the title suggests, this episode focused an unusual amount of time on Reverse-Flash and his “partners.” These three villains have proven plenty entertaining in their previous appearances, and they certainly didn’t disappoint as they took the spotlight. The appeal ran a lot deeper than the simple thrill of seeing Matt Letscher and Neal McDonough be their usual, charismatic selves. This episode played the three villains against each other wonderfully, as Darhk and Merlyn vacillated between squabbling with each other and trying to turn the tables on Thawne. What else would you expect when three hugely ambitious and self-centered villains try to form an alliance. They truly are their own worst enemy, more than the Legends themselves.

Are human-pig chimeras the solution to the organ donation crisis?

The ongoing organ shortage crisis has fueled a lucrative black market that generates over US$1 billion in profits every year. 3D-printed organs, despite their promise, remain a lab experiment for now, and while scientists have been cultivating cells in Petri dishes, they have yet to figure out how to replicate nature’s cocktail of life-giving signals. Enter a new medical breakthrough that could one day solve this problem by incubating human organs in pigs – but should we let animals pick up the slack for us in the first place?..

Taboo: "Episode 4" Review

Full spoilers for Taboo continue below.
Is James Delaney in league with Satan? Maybe, but that’s not a question Taboo is interested in exploring any time soon.
The fourth episode of Taboo put politics front and center: politics between Delaney and his late father’s wife Lorna, politics with Delaney trying to stay one step ahead of the East India Company, and politics with assembling the League of the Damned.
Taboo isn’t the show I thought it would be going in, but halfway through its first season it is showing its true colors. Like Tom Hardy told me in a recent interview, it’s more focused on politics than the supernatural.

Agents of SHIELD: "Hot Potato Soup" Review

Lots of big developments in “Hot Potato Soup,” from the Koenigs finally making their triumphant return to May and Coulson finally sharing their much-shipped first kiss. But as Agents of SHIELD gets into the meat of its L.M.D. arc, it feels like it’s intentionally trying to obfuscate things in this new episode.
Is anything as it appears to be? The characters on the show must be wondering the same thing, as they finally discovered the L.M.D. version of May. In true TV drama fashion, this reveal came right after she and Coulson kissed, though in Agents of SHIELD’s defense, Coulson’s “betrayal” over this reveal was appropriately muted. It’s not the L.M.D.’s fault he was manipulated; it’s Radcliffe’s.

The Flash: "Dead or Alive" Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.
Last time a hugely popular, nerd-friendly TV series hinged an episode around a trial by combat, the result was Game of Thrones’ “The Mountain and the Viper.” Luckily, the Flash crew weren’t interested in mentally scarring their viewers with the sight of Cisco’s head being smushed into jelly. Instead, this trial by combat offered a fun change of pace and the opportunity for the show to focus on characters other than Barry for a while.
The big news this week was the debut of Gypsy (Sleepy Hollow’s Jessica Camacho). This was a fairly loose interpretation of the character, though, what with her being re-imagined as an interdimensional bounty hunter and her illusion powers being cast aside in favor of making her Earth-19’s answer to Vibe. Comic fans might be a little disappointed, but these changes definitely worked in the context of the episode. Plus, much like Vibe himself, Gypsy was a mildly offensive ethnic stereotype when she first debuted in the comics. With all the problems the Romani people have with representation in media already, I don’t know that a traditional take on the character is really in anyone’s best interests.
