Starting Tuesday, it’s going to be a mini-“Superman Week” with four episodes of “The Adventures of Superman” airing on Decades TV starring George Reeves as Clark Kent, the mild-mannered “Daily Planet” reporter that fights the never-ending battle for truth, justice, and the American Way as the Man of Steel. That will be followed by CW’s “The Flash” starring Grant Gustin as Central City’s Scarlet Speedster, who proves that he is indeed faster than a speeding bullet when it comes to stopping meta-human criminals. “The Darkness and the Light” is a repeat that finds Team Flash struggling with their feelings with the arrival of the Harrison Wells from Earth-Two, who may – or may not – be able to help them stop Zoom, who brought in Dr. Light as the latest Earth-Two villain to stop the Flash.
On Wednesday, the American Heroes Channel will air the documentary entitled “How Superman Defeated the KKK”. A real-life American (super)hero himself, author Stetson Kennedy goes undercover to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan: providing information for the producers of “Adventures of Superman” radio program that will help expose the organization as one that promotes racism, prejudice, oppression, hatred, terror, and fear to people of all races all across America. Though he’s a fictional superhero named Superman, this documentary shows that the Man of Steel is indeed a true American hero for the basic, simple reasons: he protects the weak, champions the underdog, defends life, liberty, freedom, unity, patriotism, and justice for all for the red, white, and blue known as the United States of America.
After 75 years, Green Arrow remains a superhero for the little guy, and the CW’s “Arrow” shows why this season by having Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) stepping out of the darkness and into the light: running for Mayor of Star City and being the symbol of hope as the Green Arrow in the fight against Damien Darhk and his H.I.V.E. of operatives. The repeat of the episode entitled “Restoration” says it all with the return of the original Team Arrow: Oliver, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), and Diggle (David Ramsey). Meanwhile, Laurel/Black Canary (Katie Cassidy) and Thea/Speedy (Willa Holland) head for Nanda Parbat to bring back Sara (Caity Lotz), who will become the White Canary on “Legends of Tomorrow” coming January 21.
Episodes of “The Adventures of Superman” airs every Saturday night on Me-TV.
