BRAND NEW SERIES GOTHAM KNIGHTS
SUPERMAN & LOIS SEASON 3
PREMIERES 15 MARCH ON BINGE
BINGE continues to bring viewers the world’s greatest superheroes this March; new heroes will rise in Gotham Knights while Superman & Lois Season 3 takes flight, both premiering 15 March with new episodes weekly.
In Gotham Knights, Batman is dead, and a powder keg has ignited Gotham City without the Dark Knight to protect it. In the wake of Bruce Wayne’s murder, his adopted son Turner Hayes (Oscar Morgan) is framed for killing the Caped Crusader, along with the children of some of Batman’s enemies: Duela (Olivia Rose Keegan), an unpredictable fighter and skilled thief who was born in Arkham Asylum and abandoned by her father, Harper Row (Fallon Smythe), a streetwise and acerbic engineer who can fix anything, and her brother Cullen Row (Tyler DiChiara), a clever transgender teen who is tired of being polite and agreeable. This team of mismatched fugitives must band together to become its next generation of saviors known as the Gotham Knights.
The new series will also star Misha Collins (as Harvey Dent), Navia Robinson (as Carrie Kelley), Anna Lore (as Stephanie Brown) and Rahart Adams (as Brody).
Starring Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf) as the world’s most famous superhero, The Man of Steel aka Clark Kent and Elizabeth Tulloch (Grimm) as comic books’ most famous journalist, Lois Lane, the Kent family return for their third season on Superman & Lois. The new season opens weeks after Superman’s blowout defeat of Ally Allston. Clark (Hoechlin) and Lois (Tulloch) are now working at the Smallville Gazette together and enjoying small town life. But the Kents’ romantic bliss only shines a light on how isolating “the secret” can be. Meanwhile, the Kent boys find themselves being pulled in opposite directions as Jordan (Alex Garfin) discovers what a superhero-identity really means and Jonathan (Michael Bishop) searches for purpose beyond the football field.
The season three ensemble cast also includes Erik Valdez (as Kyle Cushing), Inde Navarrette (as Sarah Cushing), Emmanuelle Chriqui (Lana Lang) and Dylan Walsh (General Sam Lane).
From Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, Gotham Knights is written by Chad Fiveash, James Stoteraux and Natalie Abrams. Fiveash and Stoteraux serve as showrunners and executive produce the series alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Leigh London Redman. Abrams also serves as co-executive producer. Danny Cannon directed and served as an executive producer on the pilot, along with David Madden. Gotham Knights is based on characters created for DC by Bob Kane with Bill Finger.
Based on the characters from DC created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman & Lois is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti, Todd Helbing, Sarah Schechter, Brent Fletcher, and Geoff Johns.
Scientists talk about The Last of Us fungus.
So unlike Netflix where you can choose an ad tier or not … the lowest tier will have ads with Binge?

Yes. As predicted (by me at least ), this is not a new tier. Ads will be added to the Basic tier - somewhat offset (for some?) by adding HD. If you want to avoid ads you will have to jump to the next tier up - currently another $6 a month.
I wonder if Stan will follow.
Quite likely that most of the mainstream/bigger streaming services will end up with an ad-supported tier…
and I wouldn’t be surprised if Foxtel services (Kayo/Binge/Flash) will be the next to follow Netflix’s lead and ban password sharing.

In addition to co-writing and executive producing Mrs. Davis with Lindelof, Hernandez serves as showrunner. Eugene Kelly also executive produces.
There is a thread for Succession for further discussion.
I subscribed to Binge for the WWE content (got my fix and re-watched a lot of the same content when I originally subscribed to the WWE Network a few years ago, a few Rumbles, Summer Slams and of course WrestleMania’s). I’ll probably de-activate the subscription after this years WrestleMania.
I’ve watched a few of the movies available… streaming doesn’t really compare to watching the physical version of the same film (the difference throws me off massively lol).

I wonder if Netflix had not brought ads in , would Binge not have .
Oh come on. That’s just nuts.
Binge has been bollocked.
Episode 1 of Colin from Accounts was reviewed on Gogglebox tonight - rather belatedly and just as the BBC has acquired the series for BBC 2. (They also watched 1923 another streaming show that has been available for a while).
