  So I just picked up season one of The Expanse on disk and can finally catch up. Likely in one enormous binge tomorrow after running some errands. Comments to follow.

Anyone have any details on SyFy's upcoming "Incorporated?"

Been doing some binging this long weekend and caught up with Killjoys. It's a fun little show with a reasonably engaging cast -- I have a thing for smart ships -- and premise. Feels very much like we're watching someone's home campaign. Ten episodes brings it together really well; anything more would probably have stretched things too thin.

The Worlds Greatest teamup -- and an amusing play on that venerable title it was too -- between Supergirl and Flash was everything I'd expect from those two characters -- fun and positive and a huge fuck you to Snyder's grimdark Cinematic DCU. It also played the public save the hero card, something I'm also really partial to. The series has been far from perfect, but it has been a refreshingly bright and cheerful take on the genre, and they've really worked J'onn successfully into the mythos as something other than Jor-El's lapdog as he was in Smallville. I'm even pleasantly surprised at how they've managed to keep both Wynn and Cat tolerable (and the Harrison Ford joke in the penultimate episode was brilliant).

There is a Lot of stuff there.  I hope everyone is signing up for a 20 season project.

15 seasons of travel, shy stuttering, and smoothing of skirts does not make for good TV

Especially if it's on HBO or Cinemax.

Lots and lots of braid pulling... If you know what I mean.
