On The Air: DC Universe All Star Games (2020)

DC licensed a role playing game, DC Heroes, back in the 80's. It's one of the basics to a new DC Universe mini-series, All Star Games.

Actors Freddie Prinze, Jr. & Sam Witwer serve as executive producers, while Witwer (ex-Smallville, Supergirl, Riverdale) doubles as host. He & Prinze are joined by actresses Vanessa Marshall & Clare Grant, and WWE superstar Xavier Woods, who's also the brains behind the UpUpDownDown gaming channel on YouTube. Crossover, anyone? Prinze has had a couple of turns as a writer for WWE, so there's a connection between him & Woods.

The series launched last month, and is available on DC Universe to stream from the beginning. Judge for yourselves:

We looked at the opener, sampled above, and found it about as entertaining as watching paint dry. That is to say, if you're not a gamer, it's boring.

Rating (for non-gamers): C.
