What used to be a dumping ground is getting busier and busier — although part of it may be Hallmark and Lifetime’s movies becoming more self aware (the stalker prom serial killer singularity must be just around the corner… it’ll probably still be awhile, but … Continue reading What To Watch: 05/11/2019
Marvel adds yet another franchise to its TV crossover quill, while an actress who would probably rather forget she was once DC’s Batgirl returns with a promising new small-screen dramedy.
