Maybe Josh Gad will sing his popular hit song, "Do You Want to Build Star Wars 3.75" Super Articulated Figures" at Hasbro?

I see what you did there.   ;D  Let it go, Let it go...

So, I've never been much of a DC guy, but my son and I started watching The Flash over the holidays.  We went a few episodes into season 2, then went back to watch the first season of Arrow as well.  That's out of order for the cross-over events, but my son is 10 and the campy Flash cast and stories were a better introduction to this universe than the darker Arrow stores would have been.  I have to say, I'm really impressed with what DC-TV brings to the table and we love both shows.  The characters are interesting, the stories are fun, and there's just the right mix of individual plots that tie into a bigger picture reveal.  They don't take themselves overly seriously either, with a comic relief character of sorts cleverly supporting each hero's show.  They also bring in other B-Grade DC characters (Hawkgirl, Earth 2 Flash, Huntress) from time to time, which I love learning more about.  These are at least on par with Marvel's Netflix shows and Agents of Shield, if not better given the more "all audiences" approach. 

I really wish DS was mapping these characters and storylines to their movie universe/Justice League initiative.

I thought the series premier of "Legion" was excellent. Looking forward to next week.

My daughter and I watch the Flash. It's kind of the only superhero she knows. It's a good show and doesn't get all teen relationship mushy. It's a better show then AOS. I wish they would bring back the Trickester more often. He is played by Mark Hamill doing his Joker imitation.

I've been looking forward to this for months but we dumped cable a few weeks ago and I only realized five minutes before it came on that we actually DON'T have FX in any of our streaming services. Doh. Hoping I can check it out at their website or something.

Season one of "Legion" wrapped up yesterday. One of my favorite seasons of any TV show I've ever watched. Bummed I have to wait 10 months for season 2

I am only about 4 episodes in, so glad to hear it will be worth the watch.  I started watching with my son, but realized that was not a good plan by the second episode, so I have to squeeze it in-between my already rare Walking Dead viewings.

I wrapped up Legion the other day - pretty impressed with the series.  While separate from the X-Verse, the storyline with the Shadow King felt really similar to what I read in the X-Men comics decades ago.  I like the hints about mutants and his dad without having to go all the way with it or completely re-write it.  I feel like I need to watch it again though to catch everything now that I now what was going on.

With the series finale of "Bates Motel" on tonight I wanted to give it one last recommendation to all to watch sometime.

Tonight on Gotham we learn how the Riddler got his name: by committing crimes that involve leaving riddles for a worthy adversary to solve.

Who knew?  :P
