The Flash: The Complete Second Season – Blu-ray Review

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

Barry Allen has come a long way since a particle accelerator explosion transformed him into Central City’s biggest savior, The Flash. He’s honed his powers, teamed with other metahumans to fight notorious villains, and even become a reluctant hero. In the midst of all that, Barry has seen friends die, others double-cross him, and the mystery over his mother’s murder has been resolved giving him some much sought-after answers.

Following the tragic aftermath of the events in the season one finale, Barry has distanced himself those around him to keep them out of harm’s way. But superheroes and their closest friends have a tendency to attract evil no matter the circumstances, and The Flash must once again rely on those he pushed away for their own protection.

The second season of The Flash continues the adrenaline-fueled momentum that catapulted the first season into the hit it quickly became. There’s so much happening; tons of action, suspense, and cross-overs with other series that it’ll make your head spin. And if you like The Flash, boy are you in for a special treat!

How many special features can you pack into a single season of a TV series on Blu-ray? How about four hours worth! That’s right, the Blu-ray edition of season two contains over 23 featurettes that cover just about every possible thing you have ever wanted to know about what goes into making a superhero-themed TV series.

A few include a featurette that goes behind-the-scenes of the episode Kevin Smith (yes, that Kevin Smith) directed, “The Runaway Dinosaur;” Six VFX Featurettes highlighting a variety of big effects moments in the season; Character Profiles; and a Gag Reel. There’s so much to watch it’s insane!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, DC knows how to make their heroes shine on TV. It’s an amazing thing to watch as three – and soon four with Supergirl joining the ranks – series work in tandem to create a brilliantly interconnected universe for all of its characters to shine in. Well done, DC!

For some fast-paced, action-packed excitement, I highly recommend The Flash: The Complete Second Season!

The Flash: The Complete Second Season is available September 06, 2016 on DVD and Blu-ray!

Arrow: The Complete Fourth Season – Blu-ray Review

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

Arrow_-_The_Complete_Fourth_Season_Blu-ray

Ready for more action-packed Arrow fun? Here it is, folks! Non-stop from the outset, season four of Arrow delivers on its promise to bring a new and exciting level of thrills, twists, and danger as violence and chaos erupt around Star City. And new threats rearing their ugly heads, its up to a special brand of hero to put a stop to the madness.

But wait? Didn’t the superhero known as Arrow die last season? While his persona may have died, the man who embodied him lives on as Oliver Queen. Now on a path of peace and tranquility in his new life with girlfriend Felicity, Oliver does what he can to make his newfound non-vigilante lifestyle work. It doesn’t take long, however, before a new threat forces him out of retirement and back into the crime-fighting world once again.

Teaming with Black Canary, Spartan, and Speedy once more, Queen – who now identifies as Green Arrow – is back in action to help prevent a new wave of evil from threatening and destroying his beloved city. Can he and his team thwart the threat and bring peace back to the forefront?

Loaded with solid action sequences, awesome stunts, and plenty of firepower and explosions, Arrow: The Complete Fourth Season doesn’t disappoint. In fact, it ups the ante and brings even more excitement than the last three seasons. It’s a definite must-watch.

And with cameos from The Flash and characters from DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, there are plenty of surprises along the way as Green Arrow and company fight for justice.

The Blu-ray includes the following special features:

Star-Crossed Hawks featurette

Star-Crossed Hawks: The Hunt for Vandal Savage featurette

Smooth Criminal: The Damien Darhk Story featurette

Arrow: 2015 Comic-Con Panel

Gag Reel

I highly recommend Arrow: The Complete Fourth Season. It’s solid superhero entertainment!

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete First Season – Blu-ray Review

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow

Time traveling superheroes!? Count me in! The first season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is a fun and fresh take on the superhero genre that is energetic, exciting, and very entertaining. I was hooked by the pilot very quickly and was intrigued by the diverse cast of characters and the myriad story possibilities that this century-hopping series had in store.

It has yet to disappoint!

Living in a dark and destructive 2166, time-traveling rebel Rip Hunter defies the council known as the Time Lords and travels back to 2016 to assemble a team of heroes to stop the rise of the evil Vandal Savage. The reluctant group of super men and women soon comes to realize that the fate of planet Earth is in their hands and they join together to do whatever it takes to but an end to Savage’s future reign of terror and universal rule.

The only problem is that Savage is on to Hunter and his team’s plan, and he and his minions do all they can to prevent Rip and his Legends of Tomorrow from thwarting his plans. Will he succeed? Will the Legends of Tomorrow help make a better future? And can the fate of the world be changed with time the forces of time are fighting against being altered?

Loaded with amazing visuals and awesome special effects, Legends of Tomorrow proves once again that DC knows how to deliver a solid TV series. And, since the Legends of Tomorrow inhabit the same universe as Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl, expect cross-overs and cameos as the series gains momentum.

Special features include:

A Fantastic Voyage: Touring the Waverider Set

A tour through the Legends’ time-traveling ship with the creative team that brought it to life.

History in the Making

A behind-the-scenes look at the different eras presented in the series.

Jonah Hex: Hex Marks the Spot

A look at how the production team brought the Wild West and Jonah Hex to life on the small screen.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: 2015 Comic-Con Panel

Gag Reel

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is fun and solid superhero entertainment. I highly recommend this series!
