Classic TV Series
These will bring back a lot of childhood memories for many, who will be happy to binge-watch the lot. Titles include:
The Flash - More recent fans may know John Wesley Shipp from his multiple roles on the CW's The Flash, including Henry Allen and Earth 2 Flash, Jay Garick, but Shipp once had his own Flash show in the '90s, facing off a number of campy enemies including Mark Hamill's Trickster.
Birds of Prey - Back before the Arrowverse, in the days of Smallville, The CW attempted to bring the Birds of Prey to the small screen. The show didn't make it past the first season, but it's the first depiction of the team that now have their own live-action movie on the way.
Constantine - This Hellblazer show didn't make it past its first season, but it made John Constantine actor Matt Ryan popular enough with fans to live on both on the CW, including a stint on Legends of Tomorrow, and in animation.
The Adventures of Superboy - After 4 seasons, this young Clark Kent show ended in a cliffhanger with the intent of finishing the story in several TV movies. Unfortunately, a rights conflict provented that from ever happening, with Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman taking its place.
Human Target - Based loosely on the comics of the same name, this series depicts Christopher Chance as a bodyguard-for-hire who does everything it takes to protect the lives of his employers.
Adventures of Superman - George Reeves takes on the iconic role of Superman in this 1950s black and white serial adaptation of the Man of Steel.
Superman Serials - Before George Reeves and Christopher reeve donned the red cape, Kirk Alyn was the Last Son of Krypton in this series of cliffhanger adventures.
Wonder Woman - For the first time in HD, season 1 of Wonder Woman, starring Lynda Carter, will be available to watch.
Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman - One of the most classic 90's TV shows you'll ever come across, Lois and Clark stars Terri Hatcher as Lois Lane and Dean Cain as Superman/ Clark Kent. The show focuses as much on the relationship between Lois and Clark as it does on Superman's exploits. The show had a huge following back in its day and if you've never seen it, you need to remedy that - though be warned, it ends prematurely and on the mother of all cliffhangers.
