Congratulations! You’re Doomed
“A Seat At The Table” is here and it gives us what Harley wanted most. As a member of the Legion Of Doom, Harley faces the one person who can take her down… Joker. The thing is, he isn’t acting as she expected and this is throwing her off her game. With her crew relying on her help, as well as Ivy expecting her to keep her word… a lot rides on her shoulders this episode. Whether she will she make the right choices remains to be seen.
Has Harley found herself truly alone? “A Seat At The Table” truly gives viewers a heady mix of both serious and hilarious. Bane, voiced by James Adomian, gives us some really great moments with his vendetta against Todd, the cashier at a local smoothie bar. It’s hard not to feel bad for Harley in this one as even Batman takes pity on her. The Harley/ Joker battle has been building, of course in other mediums, through this season – with Harley fighting tooth and nail for him to see her as an equal – it remains to be seen if she’ll be able to stand strong on the rebound of her actions.
This finale has been one of the best parts of the whole series because it’s delivered on all the moments and stories that led up to it. Yes, there have been jokes and puns, but there have also been relatable moments, which is what has always been the main draw for Harley Quinn herself, and all her supporting characters. Everything has been in sync and has unfolded with more impact, episode by episode.

Interview panel led by Steve J. Ray, with a gathering of Comic/TV Media Journalists. I've spoken to some amazing people over the last couple of years; writers, artists, costume designers, and actors from some of my favorite TV shows. It's no secret that I'm a huge comic-book fan, and one of the TV series that's based on and inspired by a comics title - but has gone on to be so much more - is The Walking Dead . At a recent Comic-Con in London, I had the great opportunity of leading a panel where some fellow journalists and I spoke with Madison, Matthew and Macsen Lintz, three siblings who played Sophia and both iterations of Henry on the show. The eldest, Madison Lintz (born 1999) played Sophia Peletier - Carol's daughter - in the first two seasons. She's also well known for playing Maddie Bosch in the Amazon series Bosch . She started acting at the age of six, filming commercials and voice-overs. Matthew (born 2001) took over the role of Henry from
SUBMITTED FOR YOUR APPROVAL… The Twilight Zone , a television series that shows no signs of letting up, is still going strong 60 years since it first debuted on CBS in 1959. Created by the already popular writer Rod Serling, the show became a series with an infinite lifespan. The Twilight Zone is now 60 years young and still has a massive appeal to those who love a bit of twisted, comedic, moralistic and, at times horrifying, science fiction. I have been a fan of this show for many years, from the original to the latest version by Jordan Peele. It was probably in the 1980’s that I first came across this show and I was amazed. Back then, just a teenager, I thought black and white shows were old and ‘fuddy duddy’ (as my kids would say nowadays). That was until my late mam (who was always there when I found my love for various things as a youngster) turned on the tv and an episode of the TZ was showing. I always remember the first episode I saw being "Ti
The Spider-Man Clone saga is one of the most reviled story lines ever. It featured the return of Spider-Man's clone Ben Reilly, but also dragged Spider-Man through one of the strangest, series of conspiracies and narratives that the franchise have ever seen. But... is it really as bad as the internet would have you believe? Come with us as we review the Clone Saga story arc by story arc as we uncover how one of comics' most infamous series holds up today.

So far, the story has been relatively easy to follow and engaging for the most part. However, "Ka
