Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
Swamp Thing continues to deliver quality episodes that make the cancellation sting. Last week we opened with a flashback to Avery Sunderland’s childhood. They juxtaposed his inability to kill a bound gator as a child with his ease at disposing of a corpse as an adult. Next we shifted to a pair of men hunting in the swamp late at night for cypress copses and rare mosses. Instead they found a corpse that was wrapped in vine in the trees that fell on the younger man, Todd, and cuts his arm a bit. The next morning in Delroy’s Roadhouse, local bar, Todd reported for work but had insane hallucinations instead.
He saw a snake encircling his arm and began to stab at it with a knife. This scene was seriously #hardtowatch, but before he died, he also scratched Delroy, his boss.
Abby went deep in the swamp to find Alec, requesting a sample of him to test at her lab. When she was analyzing that, he appeared to be a flora/fauna hybrid. Dr. Woodrue asked to study it also. The next day, Delroy had a violent hallucination which led to police officer Lucilia getting scratched. Which meant she got her own crazy rage fit moment, in which Abby got scratched. But she was smart enough to go out into the swamp, where Alec absorbed the poison from her and put it back in the corpse it came from.
This episode really struck home how well they were ready to take story arcs from the comics and drop them into episodic, easy-to-digest episodes. Not really a simple task, considering the obscure character that is Swamp Thing. What else to say? I love this show. I hope DCU revives it someday.
On tonight’s episode, “Drive All Night,” haunted by the ghost of her childhood friend who reemerges from the swamp, Abby’s forced to confront both her past with the Sunderlands as well as the dark forces at play in Marais. Meanwhile, Sheriff Cable learns some disturbing information about her son, while Jason Woodrue shares a revelation about Swamp Thing with Avery Sunderland.
To see how Abby confronts her past, tune in to DCU at 9AM/8AMc.
I’ll also be watching Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
