We’re just one week away from the DC mega-event known as DC FanDome, which will feature an array of panels covering our favorite DC movies and television shows.

DCTV Says: ‘Real Heroes Wear Masks’

We’ve loved and hated, criticized and hailed DCTV shows around here, but we’re not sure we’ve ever been more proud of them than we are now. The CW unveiled some new posters for the 2021 slate of superhero shows …and…

Queerly Not Straight: Prioritizing White Queer Couples Over Those of Color

In an effort to build a space for queer people like myself, every Tuesday I’ll be posting opinion pieces, listicals, reviews, and more focused on the LGBT community (and occasionally about the Latinx/WOC community since I am Latinx.) Welcome to…

‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ Part 5 Review: A New Beginning

Our heroes have saved the world! Or did they? I must admit it was surprising that Legends of Tomorrow got the final episode of this massive 5-episode crossover. Surely since Arrow was the start of this whole franchise, it would…

Fangirlish Best of 2019 Lists: Shows that Did Diversity Right

We talk a lot about diversity here at Fangirlish. I talk a lot about diversity pretty much everywhere. And we’re not anywhere close to where we need to be, not in the workplace, not in society and definitely not when…

Saying Goodbye to Black Lightning

You know how you just keep doing something because you feel like you have to? My best friends had gotten me into the whole vision board thing when I am the LEAST crafty person in our group – perhaps in…

Female Characters Who Kicked Ass in 2018

Who run the world? Girls! That was so, like five years ago, but it still resonates today. 18th century healers, 21st century doctors, scientists, generals aliens and the list goes on! Damn- women truly kicked ass on television and on…

Our favorite TV Shows of 2018

There’s a lot of good TV out there. No, really, a hell of a lot of good TV, trust me, someone who just had to spiral her way into somehow narrowing this list down. But narrow it I have, with…

‘Black Lightning’ 2×06 Review: “The Perdi”

I was so psyched for the meta-human or alien like turn Black Lightning seemed to be taking this week, when I saw the little sneak peak at the end of  episode five. When I finally saw the episode, I was…

‘Black Lightning’ 2×05 Review: “Chapter One: Requiem”

“Requiem” was the perfect title for this week’s episode because there were many dead to mourn in the Lightningverse – or so it seems. The children in Lynn’s lab, Gambi, and other souls at risk in South Freeland all met…

‘Black Lightning’ 2 x 04 Translucent Freak

Anyone who watches Black Lightning could have seen the clash of ideas between Jefferson and Anissa coming ten thousand light years away. And of course “The Book of Consequences: Translucent Freak” brought it live. It also brought us Jennifer’s reunion…

‘Black Lightning’ 2 x 03 “Master Lowry”

Like episode two, Black Lightning :”Mastery Lowry” continued in the vein of strong story telling for the Pierce family. Lynn is working for a scientific breakthrough, Jennifer is struggling with her fears, Anissa is the resident Robin Hood, and Jefferson…

Black Lightning 2×02 Review: “Black Jesus Blues”

Season two’s premiere was a bit of a let down, but I am more than happy to say that episode two made a thunderous (so much bad pun intended here) return to the screen this week. Everyone had a meaningful…

‘Black Lightning’ 2 x 01 “The Rise of the Green Light Babies”

I feel like the entire summer was spent waiting on all of my favorite shows to return to the fall t.v. line-up. I was so excited to plop on the couch and run back the DVR for my CW favorites.…

Our Hopes/Wishes for the Arrowverse

Premiere week is here for the CW, and that means our favorites (or not so favorites, but hey, some of us want to hold onto hope) superhero shows are back, starting with The Flash, which premieres Tuesday, October 9th. Before…

‘Black Lightning’ SDCC Interview: James Remar Talks Family Ties

Peter Gambi’s relationship to Black Lightning and the Pierce family seemed to be on the mend by the end of season one. James Remar believes that though he and Jefferson are not all patched up, he and Anissa’s relationship is…

‘Black Lightning’ SDCC Interview: Damon Gupton Tells Viewers to Stay Tuned

Newly promoted Deputy Chief Bill Henderson has been on the trail of Black Lightning since the start of season one. Faced with threats the police can’t handle alone, the deputy has had to rely on the hero even if he…

‘Black Lightning’ SDCC Interview: Salim and Mara Brock Akil Tease The Lighntingverse

The husband and wife creative team sat down at SDCC to talk about the reason Black Lighting is so important and just why it should reign supreme in its very own Lightningverse. “You be yourself. We walked into this situation…

‘Black Lightning’ SDCC Interview: Nafessa Williams On What’s Next for Anissa

Nafessa Williams’ portrayal of the superhero Thunder is a win for comic book lovers, but it’s more like snagging a championship for those who rarely get to see people who look, speak, and lead lives similar to theirs on the…

‘Black Lightning’ SDCC Interview: China Anne McClain Teases A Super Suit and More

When we last saw Jennifer Pierce she had been reluctantly pulled into the family business of saving Freeland. Kicking butt and asking questions later, the youngest of the Pierce heroes has come a long way from her anti- super hero…

‘Black Lighting’ SDCC Interview: Christine Adams and Cress Williams Talk Fans and Heroes

Representation matters, right? Yes it does according to some fans of the CW’s hit superhero show Black Lightning.  Premiering earlier this year, Black Lightning has given those fans just what they have always wanted- the chance to see people who…
