Batwoman Needs to Focus More on the Law Enforcement Issues It Raises

Batwoman’s full of wild plot threads—an Alice in Wonderland-themed gang that causes trouble, a magical flower that can cure Kryptonite poisoning, and a hypnotist that can make you think you’re the child of a mob boss. But the show also takes time to step away from its zany storylines and deal with more grounded issues: The upcoming “Armed and Dangerous” episode will explore how the people of Gotham react after a member of the Bat-team has a negative encounter with a law enforcement agent working for a private security agency known as the Crows.

This arc could finally address a complex running question the series has posed: Can non-super characters work to make sure the Crows safely and fairly enforce the law? However, if the storyline is handled the same way the show has dealt with issues from the agency previously, this question may be forgotten almost as quickly as it’s brought up. If Batwoman wants to make an effective message about the Crows stick, they have to deal with this plotline differently than they have in the past.

Mortal Kombat Is Chock Full of Characters, Clichés, and Cool Fights

After spending the last two decades re-watching 1997’s so-utterly-bad-it’s-good Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, fans like me finally got a new live-action movie in the franchise. Just like the previews promised, 2021’s Mortal Kombat comes with great fight scenes and a lot of faithfulness to the many characters it includes from the source material. But it also delivers a bland lead and an abundance of clichés. The combination of silly action movie tropes and seriously fun fight scenes result in a middle-of-the-road movie that can be entertaining—if you know what you’re getting yourself into.

(Spoilers for Mortal Kombat 2021 follow below.)
