Crisis on Infite Earths, part 1…
Earth’s cheapest TV heroes team up to fight some inexplicable overly-complex McGuffin. Blank-faced with hair saturated in so much product it wouldn’t move in a hurricane, they battle fuzzily-drawn CGI enemies and have long emo talks. For superheroes these guys sure are whiny. You know the real hardasses because they whisper at each other threateningly and whine slightly less.
This was shown in the US about 4 months ago and for no reason I could figure out it didn’t get shown over here until now. This means that each plot strand that led each of the various heroes here has been long since forgotten and when it gets about 5 seconds each of plot catchup I was like WTF. Intersperse this with new things that have supposedly happened afterthe last ep of each I was left confused and trying to make head or tail of what was going on, or wondering if I’d missed some episodes.
Basically its a mess but it was nice to see Burt Ward, Wil Weaton, Griffin Newman and Robert Wuhl in small cameos.
Looking forward to the rest of this cheesemongering braindeadfest
