Must See TV for DC Legends of Tomorrow fans
DC Legends of Tomorrow season 5 runs over 13 episodes. Once you’ve caught them all you may wish to get your teeth into something in the same vein, so we’ve made a few suggestions below.
Batwoman is the alter-ego of Kate Kane, the daughter of Jacob Kane, who many DC comic book fans will recognise from his military company, Crows Private Security. Kate realises that in order to save the city, she must become something that her father hates, a heroic vigilante fighting for good. In this first series, we don’t just discover how Kate becomes Batwoman, we also see how she works alongside other Justice League members such as Superman, Supergirl and Flash. Catch all episodes free for 10 days with Foxtel Now.
Have you ever wondered what Alfred, Batman’s trusty servant, got up to before Bruce Wayne came along? These 10 episodes set in a dystopian version of 60s London explore just that, shining a light on Mr Alfred Pennyworth, a young man with links to the British Special Air Service. He works the doors of London nightclubs, and for such a well-spoken, handsome gentleman, he isn’t shy of the odd bit of violence. Pennyworth even crosses paths regularly with Thomas Wayne, Batman’s father. Catch Pennyworth seasons 1 now streaming on demand only on Foxtel and Foxtel Now.
When Alan Moore (V For Vendetta, Swamp Thing) first created Watchmen, he could never have imagined that the comics would first be created into a successful film and now a TV series. Although not directly based on the original story, this 10 episode season has plenty of references to previous characters that should appease seasoned fans. The story centres on rising racial tensions in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with a white supremacist group hell-bent on killing police, so much so that officers choose to wear masks to cover their identities.
