This Week in Comic-Book Television – 11/9/2015

0

At the start of a new week, there are many things to look forward to.  Namely something we all seem to look forward to is comic-book television.  Last week, we presented to you a special edition looking at all of the coming week’s shows, ranging from FOX’s Gotham to AMC’s The Walking Dead.  Here is your second installment in What’cha Reading’s Week in Comic-Book Television!

Monday, November 9, 2015

Monday nights are sort of like Batman v. Superman on television.  We have Gotham on Fox, along with Supergirl on CBS.  They both air at the same time and have given fans an interesting dilemma as to what they should watch.  One of our contributing writers, Joe Grodensky, has provided us with his recap/reviews for Gotham (the first of many could be found here) and has allowed me the opportunity to watch and enjoy Supergirl.  You could find my reviews here and here.  Here is a look at this week’s episodes.

After an excellent week on The CW’s Arrow featuring Matt Ryan as Constantine (you could read what we had to say here and also check out what OnWednesdays had to say), we finally have Brandon Routh returning as the presumed dead Ray Palmer.  The sixth episode of Arrow should be fun as we get our first look at the atom sized Dr. Palmer.
