We were the kings and queens of promise. We were the victims of ourselves. Maybe the children of a lesser God. Between heaven and hell, heaven and hell. We are the queens… of the BCTV Daily Dispatch! With waves of love & respect to 30 Seconds to Mars (check out the video at the end of the post), welcome back to your daily dose of the best things happening across the television landscape as we take a look at what's been hitting your radar in the past 24 hours- with The Umbrella Academy inching closer to wrapping Season 3. Our Sunday newbies include AEW/WWE ratings, CM Punk returns, the Supergirl cast on what they've learned, a new Doctor Who Series 13 overview raises questions, Locke & Key wraps Season 3, and a Pokemon anime question. From there, we wrap up with "5 More Things"- articles that almost made the cut but are still worth the time.
