Green Arrow & The Canaries

This is a backdoor pilot for a Mia spinoff. She clubs, Laurel shows up and hasn't aged and an idiot lurks. It is Star City 2040. Mia is the least welcoming person and is given to regretful ways of living. Mia lives in stately Queen manor. Where does William live? There is talk of a vigilante museum. There are virtual keyboards and where is William? JJ asks Mia to marry him.


William has always been inadequately recognised and valued. In 2041, Star City will become a hellhole. Laurel has bad hair. Dinah sings and she somehow owns a bar and lives in a clocktower. Dinah hasn't aged and has ringlets. 20 years after Oliver's funeral, Dinah Drake was erased from the timeline. YAY!


Dinah doesn't run the SCPD. There has been no real crime in 20 years. Bianca is the daughter of Helena. Laurel is a time traveller. Why do people have such aching fondness for Oliver? Dinah wears bad lipgloss. How does she own a bar if she doesn't exist? How did Laurel time travel? Zoe is alive and Mia wears bad eye lash jewellery and tiny skirts. JJ lumbers. William minces and Connor is out of rehab. There is a guy who seems to be called Travis but later on is called Trevor. Star City isn't a meritocracy.


Mia doesn't know Laurel or Dinah. There is no valid moral reason for this or legitimate motive. Where are Slade and his sons? Mia freaks out. There is no self calming. Laurel technobabbles. Bianca's missing and this will have a terrible outcome for Star City and Mia will be blamed. Mia shrugs off her natural domestic life to be Green Arrow.


There is no unsettling probabilities. Mia is said to destined for great things. Dinah was married? Bianca was adopted? Helena disappeared? Is this plot set up for the possible spinoff? There is unfair distress and who are these people Mia babbles to? There is biotech in 2040. Mia wears a coat with no sleeves. Laurel has a proposition or more accurately a demand. Ramirez is mayor. Laurel imposes herself on people. Mia makes a reluctant decision.


They motorbike. The canaries use their sonic screams, finally. I'm not eexactly waiting the coming spectacle of the Mia spinoff. There is talk of a chemical which I'm sure is set up for the spinoff. The Green Arrow/Canary logo is okay. Deathstroke shows up. Who is under the mask? The clothes in 2040 are so slutty. Poo coloured bronzer is still a thing.


William barely features in this. Who is undermining public security? JJ is regarded as an untrustworthy adversary/homicidal maniac and disreputable. This was not laubable. Who gave JJ his pre-Crisis memories? This was not laudable. JJ Wails. William is a tech impresario. Laurel is bony. We see a photo of Oliver, glowering. There is no fondness. Mia suits up. There are meta-dampners and a dramatic entrance and who is Trevor?


Trevor is a wussy bore who has zero intimidarting powers. This is not quietly ferocious. A stupid song plays. Laurel is all: why do I have to force you? There are killer plants and who is Trevor's boss? Trevor mouth breathes. Heroines zipline and Oliver's multiple murders are shrugged off. Mia wants to protect Oliver's legacy. Vigilantism is a game for rich people to play with.


Mia quickly yields to the vigilante life. This was not impeccable and Laurel has a future revealing tablet. Laurel lies and what did Mia do in 2041? People wonder if William is the Green Arrow. Oliver never bothered to train him. Oliver's rock has a connection to Trevor's noss. William is kidanpped and there is a cliffhanger. We'll see if this show gets picked up. Is William okay? Mia got chucked through a table pre-Crisis. I preferred the 'Birds Of Prey' tv show and movie.

La Maison Du Bon Reve

This is based on the shocking true story of Dee Dee and Gypsy. Dee Dee washes Gypsy in the sink and treats her as a child. She shaves Gypsy's head and has a cupboard full of pills. How were the pills paid for? Gypsy talks in a squeaky baby voice and apparently has a lot of illnesses.


Gypsy acts euphorically but is forced into submission by her mother. Dee Dee has toxic notions and Dee Dee is fiercely possessive not protective and forces disciplined obedience. Gypsy is coerced into doing things she doesn't want to. Dee Dee has absolute authority over her daughter and a neighbourhood mom wears booty shorts. Dee Dee acts like Gypsy is a continued worry but wants Gypsy completely reliant on her. The truth is devastating, Gypsy hasn't realised the truth, yet. Gypsy has to endure Dee Dee. Gypsy's existence is not precarious.


Gypsy is terrified that if she says no, her mother will hurt her more. Dee Dee absorbs the acclaim of being a good mom. Gypsy hasn't fully realised the abuse, yet. Dee Dee is aware of her stnading in the national regard and it seems as if they co-ordinate their behaviour.


Gypsy doesn't want to anger Dee Dee, she'll have to self rescue. She's tired of having to show undying gratitude and of being utterly reliant on her mother and of having to show deference. It's not lifelong devotion Dee Dee has, she has derailed Gypsy's life. This was okay and an absolutely chilling portrait of a family relationship based on coercive control. The Casey Anthony case takes place in the background. They shoplift. There will be far reaching consequences to Dee Dee blocking off escape routes. Gypsy begins to have deep suspicion of her mother. She has no escape, yet. Patricia Arquette and Chloe Sevigny star.


Best Lines:

“Tell if somebody's no good.”


“Use mine with me there.”


“Don't sass me.”


“I like you special.”


“She's wonderful.”

“No she ain't!”

One of them is injured. It is WW2 and this gets racist.

Power Hour

Kyra Zadorsky of 'Helix' guest stars. People mumble and Liber8 bore and Carlos is useless. Brad needs to go. Kiera's an idiot. Die show die.


Zero Hour

Brad screams and gets violent. Get this oaf off this dying show! There is stalking and murderous wrath and babble. Old Alec lurks. I've no idea what is going on. Old Alec has a son?!? Carlos is sick of the lies. This show rips off 'The Crossing'! Why is Kiera fawning over the murdeorus Brad?


Best Line:

“Changed time to be with her.”
