Naomi - Episode 1.08 - Fellowship of the Disc

 
This show has begun to find its footing. The characters are coming into their own, and there is a larger purpose for everyone. Dee and Zumbado have been at odds for a while, but they are finally willing to put aside their differences for the good of Naomi. Seeing those 2 work together will be a lot of fun. Lourdes got some much needed development, she is a more complex character than initially seen. The whole thing with the comic book store gave her a lot to chew on. It took a while to rev the engine of the show, but now that it is going, things are running pretty well.

Superman and Lois - Episode 2.08 - Into Oblivion


If you were to say that I'd be invested in a divorce story that didnt involve Lois and Clark on a Superman show, I'd have called you crazy. But the whole Kyle/Lana dynamic, while soap opera-y, is still intriguing. Every regular character on the show has a lot to do and a lot to chew on. No matter who they focus on, the story is always strong. The show has remained great deep into its second season, so hopefully that can continue.

The Flash - Episode 8.08 - The Fire Next Time


 
Someone trying to clear an obviously guilty victim - only to be correct in their innocence, is not an original idea. But when done well, the journey can be a lot of fun. While this isn't the best instance of that, The Flash did get a lot of it right. Tying it into Barry's father's story was a way to make it personal to this show. It let the original cast step up quite a bit too, which was a nice change as some of the new people have been in the forefront lately.

The best episode of the week was Superman & Lois. There is a lot going on, and every character has something intriguing to watch so you don't feel like you're clamoring to get back to another story.
