We just started a new month and a new week.  With that comes another week full of exciting new titles from great publishers and also another week of fun superhero television.  Between FOX, CBS, and The CW, DC Comics and Marvel almost have a monopoly on your viewing schedule.  If you’re like us and superhero shows are what you look forward to the must, here’s a guide to what’s on so you don’t miss out on all the latest story lines, twists, and turns.

Monday nights are now very exciting with both FOX’s Gotham and CBS’ Supergirl.  However, both series air at the competing time of 8 pm ET.  While we’re already a few episodes into the sophomore season of Gotham, CBS’s new series Supergirl just took flight last Monday.  Which show will you be watching live?

Tuesday nights aren’t just exciting because it’s the day before New Comic Book Day or as others call it Comic Book Wednesday.  No, Tuesdays are great because it’s the night one of the most solidly entertaining of shows is on – The Flash.  Let’s not forget iZombie, which is based off of the Vertigo series of the same name, is also on.

The Flash – “Enter Zoom” – 8 PM ET on The CW.  Check your local listings.

BARRY COMES UP WITH A PLAN TO DEFEAT ZOOM — After recent events, Barry (Grant Gustin) decides it’s time to confront Zoom and comes up with a dangerous plan. Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) sides with Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) and deems it too dangerous for Barry to engage with the speed demon. However, Iris (Candice Patton) shows her support and brings forth a surprising ally. We see what Earth-2 Harrison Wells’ (Tom Cavanagh) life was like before coming through the breech. JJ Makaro directed the episode written by Gabrielle Stanton & Brooke Eikmeier.

iZombie – “Love & Basketball” – 9 PM ET on The CW.  Check your local listings.

THINGS ARE STARTING TO GET REAL — Liv (Rose McIver), Detective Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin) and Ravi (Rahul Kohli) investigate the mysterious death of a peewee basketball coach. Liv, consumed with overzealous coach brains, gives Major (Robert Buckley) a much needed pep talk. Meanwhile, things get a little crazy when Blaine (David Anders) and Ravi are forced to work together to recreate the cure. Lastly, Detective Babineaux receives a surprise visit from Suzuki’s widow Helen. Michael Fields directed the episode written by Bob Dearden

Wednesdays are certainly my favorite day of the week with Arrow.  That’s a series that we’ve written about many times and even spoke in depth about during our last video blab/podcast.  Julie, of OnWednesdays, wrote about Constantine making his long awaited return to tv, and said “Oh My Gaaaaaawwwwwdddddddddd is it looking good.”  We’d have to agree so be sure to watch Arrow this week!

*What’cha Reading did not forget about AMC’s The Walking Dead.  While there is not much known in regards to this coming week’s episode, show runner Scott Gimple did reveal the following to the Hollywood Reporter:

“I’ll give you an absolute because I’ve been dealing with a lot of ambiguity in storytelling here in protecting the story: Rick’s hand is safe.  You can proclaim it from the mountaintops: His hand is safe!  He will be wrapping it.  There will be some ointments involved.”
