Comic Television #12 – Week Beginning 23 May 2016
So it’s time to say goodbye to Comic Television…or at least for this season of television shows as the few remaining comic-related series are wrapping up, leaving us with only Preacher (which doesn’t have a new episode this week for some reason) and Wynonna Earp as ongoing series that are direct adaptions. We say goodbye to Gotham, Arrow and The Flash for the summer this week in their season finales, but all have been renewed so you don’t have to worry about cancellations. And good news if you’re a Person of Interest fan, there’s three episodes this week to check out. Be sure to watch the second season of Bloodline as well which drops in its entirety on Netflix on Friday, and as always, Game of Thrones makes sure the week ends with a bang.
