Stargirl – Season 2, episode 10

Spoilers ahead!

Ok, I’m getting kind of really frustrated with this TV show now.

Another episode without Stargirl and Wildcat. The third in a row. The amount of Stargirl in “Stargirl” in this season is pretty….hilarious so far.

The episode feels much like a filler episode without nearly any action.

The horror elements are greatly reduced as well and we get some interesting backstory about Eclipso, the Shade, the shadow world, and the Diamond.

And now, with Courtney in that shadow world…. I bet that the next episode won’t have Stargirl and Wildcat in it as well. 🙁

The trailer suggests that as well.

I hope they “save” up a LOT of screentime for them for the final episodes 12 and 13 of this season.

I am looking forward to how the whole Eclipso story will end.

And please with Stargirl, Wildcat, and a LOT of action…

Black Scorpion TV show – The best scenes from the best episodes – [Episode 3]

Ok, after long 5 months it is time to have another post about the legendary Black Scorpion TV show!

The show is in my Hall of Fame and if you are into masked women, this TV show is an absolute MUST have!

 

Today, it’s all about episode 3….my personal favorite episode! Even the “biggest” unmasking comes later on in the season.

An episode with several awesome scenes which makes an EPIC episode in total!!!

And being embedded in a TV show it’s really very suspenseful as you know these characters for some time already.

Normally I post the pictures before the video, but this time I wanna do it differently as the pictures give away every great scene of this loooooong video.

For those who do not know the episode, I recommend strongly watching the video first (Google Drive link) …and then… scroll down further!

(The video combines all Black Scorpion scenes of the episode)

And these pictures are really from a SINGLE episode! Not a whole season….just one(!) episode.

Ok, about the video:

I love these scenes big time! It’s the only time someone else is (successfully) unmasking her while she isn’t restrained.

I love how the henchwoman unmasks her by surprise and that Flashpoint wants to take pictures of her unmasked to become a famous photographer.

Good though that she was shielding her unmasked face like that and that she took care of the camera….even she thereby created a supervillain.

And he doesn’t give up easily! As they manage to blind her with his special “light” he is unconscious once more. Love the suspense as her hand is reaching for her mask, ready to unmask her again!

But again, she can escape.

Later on, she is knocked out again (:lol:) but he has no camera with him. She is really lucky!

Then she unmasks herself in front of Steve who luckily is still dizzy and can’t see her exposed face.

And that’s not even it….

The final scene where Steve’s hand is touching her mask…is incredibly sexy for me! Love the suspense and tension in such a scene!

She seems ok with him unmasking her, but he has second thoughts. Perhaps he is irritated that she doesn’t resist him.

Once more she gets out of the situation without anyone finding out her precious secret identity.

This single episode is really so close to perfection for me! It has everything and plenty of it. 🙂

 

P.S.:

What I would give for a Blu-ray release of this show or an HD TV airing!

What do you think about this episode and these scenes?

Stargirl – Season 2, episode 9

Well, I could pretty much copy and paste most of my previous review for this one.

SPOILERS ahead!

It’s an interesting episode, I really love the horror elements!

But again…..no Stargirl or Wildcat in it! In the last 3 episodes, we had a little over 1 minute of Stargirl and Wildcat in it….in total…. 🙁

And the trailer for the next episode doesn’t make much hope for a change in the next episode….but perhaps…. after all, it’s only a teaser with 20 seconds of footage.

Yeah, the story works fine…but…I do want more Stargirl in “Stargirl”.

The whole episode basically focuses on Courtney and her family who are being manipulated by Eclipso as they have some hallucinations of their worst fear…more or less.

Also, we get some flashbacks of the JSA and how they decided to kill the previous host body of Eclipso and thereby disregarded their own number one rule.

Pat never told Courtney that and ….of course…. she is very much shocked by it.

Except for the flashbacks the whole episode basically plays in the Whitmore house. Yolanda, Beth, and Rick aren’t in the episode at all.

So, I was thrilled and entertained by the episode….but without the masked ladies….something is missing for me.

Batwoman News, October 6

Season 3 of the Batwoman TV show is only one week away!

So, I took the time and prepared a season 3 page for the show and edited the other season pages as well.

I also added links to the season 2 Blu-ray and DVD sets to the season 2 page.

So, if you wanna have season 2 in your collection, you are very welcome to get it here and thereby support this blog with a little donation, that doesn’t cost you anything.

For those who are interested there are also 4 “Special features” on the Blu-ray set (don’t know about the DVD version):
“Villains analyzed”
“Never alone: Heroes and Allies”
“Deleted Scenes”
and a “Gag Reel”
That is much more than the very few extras of season 1.
Looking forward to checking these out as well!
Especially the deleted scenes 🙂

I will start re-watching season 2 today and watch all the 18 episodes in the upcoming days to be ready for season 3.

And if you want to know more about the first episode of season 3 “Mad as a Hatter”, here are some links for you:

P.S.:

And I changed the picture on top of the website. Nearly identical to the Youtube channel now.

Hope you like it.

 

A bank robbery with 11(!) masked, female bank robbers

Thanks to the nice guy who recommended me this one!

This one is highly unusual…in many ways.

First of all, it is from an Iranian TV show, and thereby the first scene I watched from that country…and I think it’s the same for most of you here as well.

I thought about presenting it here at all, but in the end, the filmmakers are not responsible for the actions of the government, so I decided to make a post.

Especially it offers quite a lot.

Let’s start with some pictures:

(click to enlarge)

Here is the video:

Link

Ok, a real rollercoaster ride for me.

Let’s start with the bad aspects. It’s a soap opera with a language I don’t understand. So, I don’t have any connection to these characters. Who are they? What do they want? Why are they doing this? That certainly “damages” the impact of the scene quite a big time as they are just random people to me.

How great would it be if I would actually know these women and would really care about them?

Also, that weird nightmare scene with the bad CGI looks just awful.

On the bright side, we have 11(!) women who mask themselves rob a bank, and then unmask themselves afterward!!! The quantity of masks and unmaskings is just awesome. Never seen anything like that.

I also like that they really take their disguises very seriously, most of them are wearing more than one mask or piece of disguise.

The self unmasking in the end is very nice! Of course, I would have wished for some security guards who would be curious to take a peek under these masks…. 😉

I don’t get why they need 11 women to rob that place as normally you have something like 3-5 in most movies.

But ok, I am sure these 11 are connected by some background story….

Wanna know from which TV show this is?

Stargirl – Season 2, episode 8

First:

I updated the “Hall of Fame” with a new entry (15). If you checked the blog the last weekend it won’t be a new one for you, but it certainly deserves to be there.

Now, here is my short review of episode 8 of Stargirl (season 2):

SPOILERS ahead!

Another interesting and thrilling episode….BUT….and you know what comes now…….with NO scenes at all with the masked ladies.

Ok, well, Courtney is holding Wildcat’s cowl in her hands after Yolanda dropped her costume and cowl at Courtney’s place…but well, that doesn’t fully count.

After so much Stargirl and Wildcat in episode 6, we got practically no scenes with the masked ladies in the 2 episodes after that.

So, I really would like to see more of Stargirl in a TV show that is called “Stargirl” 😉

I want more Stargirl in “Stargirl”.

Sometimes it feels like a Batman movie where Batman has two scenes in it.

Some pictures:

(click to enlarge)

But enough of that for now.

The episode focuses on Rick and Beth. They are both heavily influenced by Eclipso in different ways.

I like how he tries to manipulate them with their worst fears, that is really well played.

And that brat from hell is quite terrifying! I love the dark atmosphere and the horror elements of the episode.

The odds aren’t very good for team Stargirl at the moment.

Stargirl’s staff is still recovering, Courtney is really frustrated. Yolanda quit being Wildcat. Rick destroyed the hourglass beyond repair(?).

Beth won her “battle” with Eclipso for the moment, that was a victory much needed for the team and especially for her.

There are 5 more episodes in this season. At the moment my prediction/guess is that there will be very little or no scenes with Stargirl and her team in the next 2 episodes and that they then finally team up again to fight Eclipso in the last 3 episodes.

Here is the trailer for the next episode:

A female burglar and a female killer…… masked with fencing masks!

This one was really GREAT recommendation I got some weeks/months ago!

And finally, it’s time to present this one here…

Honestly, I would recommend that you watch the whole movie if you get the chance.

It has around just 80 minutes and most of the time you have one or two masked women in this one!!!

Such a “masked woman” screentime is just fantastic.

So, I had a pretty hard time editing videos for this one as I would upload a really big part of the movie if I would upload all the scenes with a masked woman in this one.

So, I focus on the two best scenes in the movie.

And if you can’t see the movie or wanna re-watch the best scenes…here you go:

Preview, scene 1:

(click to enlarge)

Here is the scene:

Link

Watch the video before you continue!

Ok, let’s start with the maskS! Then actually she is wearing some sort of ski mask or so underneath the fencing mask.

She really takes her secret identity very seriously and I love that!

And damn, all that talk about her mask and that she can’t take off her mask but the kid is demanding it……it’s just fantastic for me!

In terms of “mask talk”, this scene deserves a Maskripper Oscar 😉 …. and I will actually make a “Hall of Fame” entry for it in the next few days.

In this scene, I am on the burglar’s side as she keeps her end of the bargain and unmasks herself….unlike the cheaty little girl.

But the girl did a good job in talking the masked lady into unmasking herself, pretty clever….now she knows how the woman looks without her mask(s).

All in all a great scene!

 

But I do have another one for you folks…..

Preview, scene 2:

(click to enlarge)

Here is scene 2:

Link

Watch the video before you continue!

Well, another fine scene, not as good as the first one, but another nice reveal!

Sadly he is no challenge to her at all after she was stabbed (understandably).

It’s a shame that he never had a real chance to attack her and go for the mask.

But I do like how she unmasks herself and looks at him before he dies.

And the fencing mask is very interesting, you can see her face with the right lighting, but not fully. Never saw fencing masks being used like that in a movie or TV show.

 Again, I recommend watching the whole movie as you only then can understand the background story behind all of that. And you also get more minutes of the masked ladies 😉

I did find two interesting posters for this one:

(click to enlarge)

I especially like the one on the left. Sexy Bella Thorne in leather + two masked leather-clad persons in the background.

It’s a little odd that both folks in the background look like women….if you ask me. One of the burglars is a guy, so is he not on the poster? That would mean that Bella Thorne is on that picture twice! Once in the foreground without a mask and once in the background with a mask and slightly different clothes.

Quite odd, but I am 90% sure that there are three women on it.

And even more oddly, Bella Thorne is twice on the other poster as well! And the guy isn’t there as well.

Really, really odd!

And the wound on the woman looks quite fake and she doesn’t get a wound like that in the movie….even she does get hurt on that side of the face.

Here is the IMDB link:

What do you think of these scenes?

Stargirl – Season 2, episode 7

Spoilers ahead!

Well, after we got over 15 minutes with the masked ladies in the last episode as it had a massive fight scene with the bad guys….. we get quite the opposite this week.

The episode centers on Yolanda (aka Wildcat) and her guilt after she killed Brainwave in the season 1 finale.

It is a really good episode with nice horror elements.

….but in terms of the masked women in action….it offers nearly nothing.

Stargirl is in the picture for a few seconds and Wildcat only a little longer. Together it is less than a minute.

Some pictures:

(click to enlarge)

Yolanda is so traumatized by the fact she killed Brainwave that she even decides to quit being Wildcat at the end of the episode!

But I bet that she will resume her role and costume pretty soon.

Interesting is the fact that it’s hard to say if it is Eclipso who is making her see things or if Brainwave is really taking over her mind more and more.

I would prefer the Eclipso option, that would make more sense to me.

Love how Eclipso is running around the town as this seemingly innocent boy but is manipulating people with his powers into doing evil things.

The trailer for the next episode isn’t very promising from my perspective as the episode seems to focus on Solomon Grundy. But ok, that’s just the teaser.

I hope for some more Stargirl action in the next one. Don’t think that Wildcat will appear in that one.

 

Batwoman News: Trailer + Episode titles

I’m a little late with this here on the blog, but the full trailer for season 3 was released 2 days ago!

Check it out:

We get some quick scenes with the new characters of Renee Montoya, Jada Jet and Marquis Jet + we can see Mad Hatter and Killer Croc!

Some nice reveals 🙂

And also the first 5 episode titles were released today:

Spoiler title
3×01 – Mad as a Hatter— 3×02 – Loose Tooth— 3×03 – Freeze — 3×04 – Antifreeze — 3×05 – A Lesson From Professor Pyg

Well, that’s a really awesome lineup of villains! And that is only the first 5 episodes.

Three more weeks to go!

The “Nightwatchman” in action! – Scene 7 [Final]

It’s time for one last scene of the Nightwatchman in action!

So far, she did a really good job in helping the oppressed people of Nottingham.

She also managed to escape the bad guys, especially the evil Guy of Gisborne who wants to stop the Nightwatchman and unmask him (as he still thinks it’s a man #blind)

What will happen this time? Well, see for yourself…..

Preview:

 

(click to enlarge)

And here is the video:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1sz1kU5HFjkGZWJ7E5n5UxQtRrnZ_pv3b/view?usp=sharing

Watch the video before you continue!

Well….what can I say? Perhaps……WOW!

I got really attached to both Marian and the Nightwatchman in their adventures over 2 seasons of this show.

And know she is trapped, pinned down by Guy, he rips off her eye mask….finally he realizes the Nightwatchman is a woman.

I guess he also realizes now that it’s his beloved Marian under the mask of his hated Nightwatchman.

He slowly yanks down the fabric that still covers her face pretty well.

Finally, the Nightwatchman is UNMASKED!

There is quite a lot I really love about this EPIC unmasking!

The fight is done quite well, and the way she reacts to her more and more desperate situation is great.

She really sells the fear very well as her face gets exposed by him.

He is so shocked that it is Marian that he runs away at first.

He stills doubts that it was her all the time, wanting the see the scar he inflicted on the vigilante.

So, as she is forced to show that scar it’s like a second unmasking …in a way.

Perhaps a “NO!” or a “STOP!” would have been nice as he was about to unmask her…but she always stay silent in his presence as she was concerned he would recognize her voice….or at least realize that the Nightwatchman IS a woman.

So, it fits quite well, that she didn’t protest as he was unmasking her.

Well….I think this is one of the most thrilling unmaskings ever made in a movie or TV show. Especially I was so into the storyline after having seen over 20 episodes with her.

Ok, the Nightwatchman should have had more appearances, but well…I posted all 7 scenes of her….so, that’s not too bad.

Spoilers about Marian’s future in the show…..

Tragically this unmasking indirectly leads to Marian’s death just 2 episodes later as Gisborne is now really enraged.

At the end of season 1, she was already presumed dead. The producer loved the strong reaction of the audience as I saw in the bonus material on the Blu-ray set.

So they came up with the idea to “top” that and kill her off, this time for real!

I don’t like that decision at all, even it is a drastic and unusual way to kill off the big love of the main character! That was certainly not expected.

Of course, that also means that there were no more Nightwatchman scenes in the final third season, which was just ok for me.

I will re-watch seasons 1 and 2 at some point….but not season 3 😉

Batwoman News: Teaser + a picture + some minor spoilers + poster

[2nd post for today]

Yesterday, we finally got some promo material for season 3!

It was time the promo machine got started as the season is less than one month away (October 13).

Here is the teaser snippet:

Yeah, just some seconds…but…it’s good to know that Alice won’t just be in prison during season 3 at that would quickly get rather boring.

Also, we can see that the hunt for the trophies that Batman collected from the biggest villains is on!

Poison Ivy is confirmed and cast, but no news on the other possible villains like the Penguin.

 

If you scroll down a little to the Batwoman part….you can get more info on season 3 here:

*EDIT* September 17:

And we got a new season poster:

Really cool poster, love the Arkham Asylum background and Batwoman’s pose.

Is it October 13 already? No? Damn!

Stargirl – Season 2, episode 6

[1st post for today, one more to come]

Time to talk about episode 6 of Stargirl!

SPOILERS ahead!

SPOILERS ahead!

SPOILERS ahead!

Last week’s episode was already a really good one with finally real screentime with Stargirl, Wildcat, and co.

Episode 6 is even better and certainly has a big gamechanger!

Due to problems with Youtube, I won’t upload any Stargirl videos anymore, so some pictures and this text has to be enough.

Pictures first:

I increased the brightness of these pictures a little….

(click to enlarge)

Ok, I liked a lot of things in this one!

A new masked villainess! Of course, every one of the good guys already knows who she is…..but well, it’s a nice addition! And I like her full face mask…just like an improved version of the one her father was/is wearing.

It’s soo odd that many of the bad and good guys wear masks….but for the most time, they all know who is under which mask. And the show NEVER shows any interactions of the masked folks with any civilians who seemingly don’t know about both teams.

It’s like there are two worlds in this show, the civilians and the unmasked alter egos of the heroes and villains…… and another one where there are the bad guys and the heroes.

But ok, enough of that, back to the episode.

The fight scene in the school is well-done and pretty long….I really enjoyed that one BIG time! Good stunt work and pretty creative as well 🙂

And damn, I know Eclipso would show up sooner or later…but what a debut!

Killing off two of the bad guys! Ok, perhaps there is some chance that Cindy may show up again….but it certainly doesn’t look like that!

His appearance now changes everything! It’s no longer some teenager in masks fighting some also young villains.

Now they have to face an incredible powerful……..well……monster that is seemingly so much stronger than everything they have encountered so far.

I wonder what Artemis will do now? Will Solomon Grundy show up again? Will they all team up with The Shade and the heroes to fight Eclipso?

After the pretty slow first 4 episodes….the last one and this one have me now fully “hyped up” for the rest of the season! 😉

Here is the trailer for episode 7:
