WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOK­ING FOR­WARD TO IN THE NEW US TV SEA­SON?

Le­gends Of To­mor­row looks suit­ably big­ger than Arrow or The Flash, though I do ques­tion the choice of char­ac­ters. I know it is more of a util­ity thing, since new char­ac­ters re­quire con­cep­tu­al­i­sa­tion and the cast­ing of fresh faces, but tak­ing all our favourite back­ground char­ac­ters and throw­ing them to­gether smacks of lazi­ness. It’s bril­liant lazi­ness, be­cause Bran­don Routh’s Iron Man has been a de­light through­out sea­son three of Arrow. But res­ur­rect­ing Sara Lance as the “White Ca­nary” guts her exit from the uni­verse. It’s like they brought her back just to pad out the num­bers with an ac­tress they liked work­ing with.

Su­per­girl looks fun, but I am re­serv­ing fi­nal judg­ment un­til the first episode pre­mieres here in the UK. Though one fe­male- led su­per­hero se­ries I am es­pe­cially stoked for is AKA Jes­sica Jones. Af­ter de­vour­ing Dare­devil, my faith in the Marvel- ABC- Net­flix pro­duc­tion tag team has so­lid­i­fied into ob­sid­ian. And next year we get Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Dare­devil sea­son two!

looks ab­so­lutely aw­ful. The mu­sic and di­a­logue in the trailer make it look like a dodgy ’ 80s sit­com.

Phil Wil­son, Face­book Mi­nor­ity Re­port looks amaz­ing. Le­gends Of To­mor­row should be fun.
