Daredevil, Netflix
A.V. Club; IMDb; Marvel.com; MCU Wiki; Netflix; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so of course I'm really anxious to see it. But I don't get Netflix, so I can't. But I'm sure I'll get a chance someday. (Note: it is not set in the same universe as Daredevil.)


Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, ABC
IMDb; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This first aired the year after I was born, so it's kinda before my time. I can't help expecting it to be incredibly stupid, so whatever slim desire I might have to check it out is for entirely the wrong reason. But you never know, I could be surprised and actually like it. Still, I very much doubt I'll ever get around to seeing it, anyway. (It was initially a segment on something called "The Krofft Supershow," but I am quite confident I would be entirely uninterested in any of the other segments on that show.)


The Green Hornet, ABC
IMDb; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes Wikipedia

I don't really know much of anything about this show, but I wouldn't mind checking it out someday if possible.


Iron Fist, Netflix
A.V. Club; IMDb; MCU Wiki; Netflix; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This is the fourth Netflix series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so of course I'm really anxious to see it. But I don't get Netflix, so I can't.


Jessica Jones, Netflix
A.V. Club; IMDb; Marvel.com; MCU Wiki; Netflix; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This is the second Netflix series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so of course I'm really anxious to see it. But I don't get Netflix, so I can't. But I'm sure I'll get a chance someday. (But I'll definitely want to watch the first series, "Daredevil," before I watch this.) I should also say I'm not familiar at all with the title character. I gather she used to be a superhero, before the series starts, but she isn't anymore. So it's possible that whenever I get around to watching it, I'll put my review in a different category. But for now I'm listing it under "superhero shows," because I'm not sure where I might end up putting the review, eventually.


Legends of Tomorrow, The CW
Amazon; A.V. Club; CTV; CW; DC Comics; Hulu; IMDb; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Warner Bros.; Wikia; Wikipedia

The official title may be "DC's Legends of Tomorrow," but as is the case with Marvel shows, I'm not planning on including the comics publisher in the title, in my review. Anyway, it's part of the Arrowverse, so I was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately, I have been unable to watch it because I don't get the CW. I had been watching CW shows on Hulu, but shortly before this series debuted, my internet just slowed down too much to watch anything on Hulu. Which means I've had to stop watching a lot of shows, which is really annoying. So I have no idea when I'll get to see this (or any of the Arrowverse shows I had been watching). But hopefully I will, someday.


Legion, FX
Amazon; FX; IMDb; Marvel Database; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

I guess this isn't really a "superhero" show, but it is about Marvel comic book characters, and the show may eventually tie into either the X-Men movies or the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Or it may stand alone. Anyway, I'd like to check it out someday, if I get the chance, but right now I don't get FX.


Luke Cage, Netflix
A.V. Club; IMDb; Marvel.com; MCU Wiki; Netflix; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This is the third Netflix series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so of course I'm really anxious to see it. But I don't get Netflix, so I can't. But I'm sure I'll get a chance someday.


Powers, PlayStation Network
Amazon; IMDb; PlayStation; Sony Pictures; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikia; Wikipedia

This is based on a comic book that I haven't read. I don't know much of anything about the PlayStation Network; I know it's a streaming service that you can watch on TV, so I guess if I consider Netflix to be TV, I might as well do so with PSN. But I still sort of think I might end up calling this a web series. I don't know. Anyway, it's a moot point unless I ever actually see the show (which I'd probably end up doing either online or on DVD). So whatevs.


The Secrets of Isis, CBS/syndicated
Hulu; IMDb; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

Also known simply as "Isis." This began airing in 1975, the year I was born. So It's before my time. I guess it aired along with a related show called "Shazam!", which was based on the DC Comics character Captain Marvel, with whom I am barely familiar. I don't think Isis had any relation to the comics, though. Anyway, I might like to check out both shows someday, but this is probably the one I'd be more interested in.


Superboy, syndicated
Amazon; DC; DC Database; IMDb; Retro Junk; Superman Wiki; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Wikipedia

This ran for four seasons, from 1988-92. I don't recall being aware of it at the time, but I may have been, vaguely. (It certainly wasn't on any channel I got.) In the third season, the title was changed to "The Adventures of Superboy."


Wonder Woman, ABC/CBS
Amazon; DC; IMDb; Retro Junk; TV.com; TV Tango; TV Tropes; Warner Video; Wikipedia

Don't know what to say except of course it's based on the comic book character, and it starred Lynda Carter. I reckon I'll definitely have to get the DVDs someday.
