The 10 Most Memorable TV Weddings That Inspired Jasmine Guillory’s Romanctic Debut

in Fiction by

We’ve got weddings on the brain lately. Between the upcoming royal wedding Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle AND the epic double wedding on The CW crossover last week, who can blame us? It may be late fall (and not traditionally wedding season), but there’s clearly never a wrong time to get into the wedding-spirit. With so much love in the air, we’re rounding up our favorite TV weddings of all time. Gif via dailydcheroes.tumblr.com Prince Charles & Princess Diana, July 29, 1981 While Prince Harry prepares for his own wedding, he will no doubt get a lot of advice on royal matrimony from his father Prince Charles whose 1981 wedding to Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, was watched by 750 million worldwide.  Often referred…

Crisis on Earth-X! Everything We Know About the CW Crossover Event

in Fiction by

Warning: major spoilers for upcoming episodes of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl! It’s almost that time of year again. The time we look forward to all year, filled with festivities and lights and just the right amount of drama. No, we’re not talking about the holiday season and those awkward family dinners. Instead, it’s time to celebrate the annual CW superhero crossover, which only seems to expand with each passing year (and with each new show added to the lineup). At this point we’re crossing over four different shows, in a two-night event that promises to be insanely epic. On November 27th and 28th, the crossover event is taking over, with Supergirl and a special episode of…

Season 4 of ‘The Flash’ Premieres Tonight! We Have Spoilers You Won’t Want To Miss

in Fiction by

Warning: Slight Spoilers Ahead! 2017 is shaping up to be the year of the superhero. Not only are movie superheroes setting records and dominating at the box office (we’re still obsessed with Wonder Woman!), but they’re taking over fall TV as well. From new shows, like The Gifted and Marvel’s Runaways, to some old returning favorites like Jessica Jones, masked heroes are all over the small screen. And we’re not complaining. There’s nothing we love more than watching our favorite TV stars save the world again and again. This week, all FOUR of CW’s superhero shows are returning, finally giving us some answers after all the cliffhangers they left dangling last spring. They’re also planning another major crossover event, bringing all…

6 Book and TV Spinoffs that Keep us Hooked!

in Fiction by

Sometimes spinoffs get a bad rap. And for good reason:  Dear Friends fans, let’s all keep pretending that Joey never happened, OK? But for every Joanie Loves Chachi, there’s also a Frasier, proving that spinoffs can be just as good –- or sometimes better! -– than the shows that preceded them. Right now, television is saturated with spinoffs. Not that we’re complaining. With the exception of a select few (*cough* Fear the Walking Dead *cough*), most of the spinoffs on TV are pretty awesome these days. We can’t get enough of shows like Better Call Saul, a spinoff of Breaking Bad, or Legends of Tomorrow, a roundabout spinoff of Arrow. But we do have a few favorites, in both the world…

Battle ‘Ships: The Flash’s WestAllen vs. SnowBarry

in Fiction by

When The Flash first premiered last year as a spinoff of superhero show Arrow, I thought it would be a nice antidote to its predecessor’s often dark and depressing storylines. Everything about it felt simpler: a less complicated superhero, more humor and an established love story from the very beginning. This show had none of the Laurel/Felicity/Oliver angst of Arrow. Though it might take a while to get there, it was clear that Barry Allen and Iris West were endgame. Fast-forward to a year and a half later, and I’m forced to eat my words. The Flash might actually be more complicated than Arrow at this point, with time travel, alternate dimensions and two pretty solid ‘ships to choose from. Some…

From Captain America to Batman v. Superman: Superheroes Are Taking Over

in Fiction by

Forget about Hillary vs. Bernie. Never mind Trump vs. Carson. The real action online is in a slew of geek-tastic movie trailers that are dropping faster than late-Autumn leaves. Last week saw the release of the latest trailer for Captain America: Civil War, a movie that may as well be titled Avengers 3. As with most trailers, the cuts are quick, the action is lightning-fast, and you are compelled to watch it over and over and over again (Holy crap—it’s Black Panther! No! What happened to War Machine? And just what the heck is up with that crazy shield duet that Cap and Bucky are playing on Iron Man’s noggin?).     And then, just as our hearts were starting…

“Olicity” Watch Part 2: Oh No, They Didn’t! Olicity Heads for Troubled Waters

in Fiction by

Warning: Spoilers Ahead! Grrrr. This was a rough one. Character development went out the window in favor of cheap, manufactured drama this week. Oliver Queen is not looking good right now and “Olicity” is skating on thinner ice than it has in…maybe forever. After seven episodes of a flawlessly handled relationship, the writers have decided to start blowing stupid, stupid holes in our ‘ship. Fine. I’m not crying, you’re crying. In all its imperfect glory, here’s our “Olicity” Watch for Arrow 4×08: Legends of Yesterday: Recap: Team Arrow and Team Flash work together to try and stop Vandal Savage from destroying the city. Kendra has to learn to control her powers, as Savage demands the two reincarnated lovers be brought…

“Olicity” Watch Special Edition: Reincarnated Soul Mates and The Flash ‘Ships “Olicity”!

in Fiction by

Warning: Spoilers Ahead! It has become tradition now for a December sweeps Flarrow crossover event, with The Flash and Arrow converging in two back-to-back episodes. Though this first installment was a bit all over the place, I’ll take my “Olicity” anyway I can get it, and Legends of Today more than delivered on that front. So in honor of all the kissing and Barry clearly shipping “Olicity” as much as I do, we’re doing a two-part Watch this week. Here’s our first “Olicity” roundup for The Flash: 2×08: Recap/Review: Team Flash is dealing with a mystical villain named Vandal Savage who’s oddly focused on Cisco’s new girlfriend Kendra. Realizing he needs more help, Barry, Cisco and Kendra travel to Star…

Comic fans, welcome the rise of the superheroine

in Fiction by

Batman. Superman. Spiderman. There’s no denying that when we think of superheroes, our minds conjure up a vision of a man in a cape, swooping in to save his city. But what about the female heroes? From Batgirl to Wonder Woman, we know they’re out there – and it’s way past time for superheroines to get their fair share of the glory. Luckily, the rest of the world seems to agree. From television to books, it seems like superheroines have been popping up everywhere recently. Take Arrow, for example. The CW show about the classic DC Comics hero, Green Arrow, started as a crusade by one masked man. But since it first aired in 2012, the show has grown to…

Will meta-humans rescue the new television season?

in Fiction by

After dominating the big screen for the past several years, it was only a matter of time before comic book-inspired stories made their mark on television. And while such shows have already established a toehold on the small screen with series like Smallville, Arrow, and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., this TV season will see a quantum leap in the number of superheroes getting their own network time slots. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the comic book franchises that will come to life in your living room this year. Gotham (FOX) Gotham City may be a nice place to visit but I wouldn’t want to live there, what with all the bizarre super-villains waiting to wreck havoc on its…
