Okay, so, no one panic. But we’re here. The weapon is built, the Harbinger has come, and Crisis on Infinite Earths is just days away. This week’s Clock Tower is going to work a little bit differently. We’re still going to talk about the respective shows, but we’re also going to do a little bit of a primer for those who are hyped to check out Crisis, but don’t have the time to commit to five full-time superhero shows! If you’re lost during these little check-ins, just scroll ‘till you hit “So, What Do I Need to Know to Watch Crisis on Infinite Earths?”

The boys had their week off, so it’s the girls’ turn! The Flash and Arrow hold down the fort this week and, well, things get a little sad all around. Both shows bring it with exceptional episodes, they’re just trying to prepare us for all of the death that’s coming our way very soon. Let’s dive right in!

Hi Super Friends! We are literally sprinting toward Crisis on Infinite Earths at this point. For those who might not have noticed, Thanksgiving is right around the bend. Once that’s over, you’ve got a week off and then everything’s going down in ye olde Arrowverse! Here’s a look at where we sit this week.

The boys are away this week, which means we get to spend a solid hunk of time talking about Batwoman and Supergirl. I know it’s hard when these mini-breaks crop up when you’re not expecting them, but it’s high time we give The World’s Finest some attention! They’ve been pushed to the side a little bit more than The Flash and Arrow not because they’re inferior shows, but because the Scarlet Speedster and his cranky friend have a lot more interactions with The Monitor and many more lead-ins on the whole Crisis situation. Let’s take a look at what else the Arrowverse had to offer this week. Read More »

Remember last week when I talked about those lulls? Well, they heard me and they’re here. But only for half of the shows! While Batwoman and Arrow both brought it, The Flash and Supergirl both delivered middling episodes. With that in mind, even middling episodes can have solid moments or set up something fun for the future. We got a quick check-in with that rascally Monitor as well!

Twenty-two-episode arcs always have lulls. Those lulls are especially prone to occur mid-season or before a major event, which is why it’s so weird that every single show in the Arrowverse absolutely knocked it out of the park this week. Whether it’s with Crisis lead-ins or the heroes doing what they do best, everyone brought their absolute A-game to the table.

superman and lois tv series

Having popped up in plenty of other DC shows on The CW, Tyler Hoechlin‘s Superman and Elizabeth Tulloch‘s Lois Lane are about to get their own series. The CW is currently developing a new show called Superman and Lois, which will show how the ace reporter and the Man of Steel deal with being modern parents, which is certainly a new angle for a Superman show.

the 100 prequel

Talk about starting off with a bang: The 100 is getting a prequel series, set right after a nuclear apocalypse kills off most of the human population. The CW series has been running for 6 seasons now, and a backdoor pilot for a The 100 prequel has just been ordered ahead of the seventh and final season. A potential 100 prequel has been a possibility for a few years, but now that the end is truly near for the main series, The CW seems ready to move ahead.

And we’re back! A whole world has been decimated since we last took a look at the Arrowverse, so buckle in boys and girls! The Flash is playing with death, Supergirl’s trying to save the sanctity of journalism, Batwoman’s found her identity and Arrow just wants to keep as many people alive as possible. All of our heroes have had a rough couple of weeks and this whole Crisis situation is just getting started!

Hi, and welcome to the very first edition of The Clock Tower. (Yes, that’s in reference to exactly what you think it is.) Over the years, the Arrowverse has grown into a massive undertaking. We’ve seen The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and now Batwoman all stem from the world that Arrow started. Now, as we inch closer and closer to the huge crossover event Crisis on Infinite Earths, it’s time to start bidding farewell to the show that started it all. Read More »
