They stuck the landing!  We got amazing Black Fatherhood, a satisfying conclusion to the Mon-El/Kara romance, a happy ending for Ruby and Sam, the departure of Winn, and a completely changed landscape in the Supergirl Universe.  And they have seeded Red Daughter of Krypton for season 4!  

We encourage everyone starting this show to go ahead and watch season 1.  Although it's a struggle, we think it's important to see how the show has grown better with each season.

I don't mean to worry anyone, but it is my sworn duty to inform you all that Kevin Durant is in serious jeopardy of being soetnign of a sucker. No, no not for that thing that was just good business. His latest brusher with suckerhood has come with a GM popping off at the mouth, but when you've got Rich Fann from PWTorch on you can cover this, LeBron's place in history, Kawahi's place post-Spurs, Baseball trying to put horses back in barns, the place of the NFL holdout in 2018, and of course, Pro Wrestling.

Kriss is back with another episode of the Insanity Check to cover this week's dose of insanity in the world. This week he's joined by Leslie Mac. They talk about the overwhelming amount of news coming out each week and how it's becoming almost impossible to keep up. It's draining and if not careful, one can find themselves feeling completely lost and helpless.

It's been 14 years since the first Incredibles film. Has it been worth the wait? Absolutely.

Kriss, Phenom and Ashley discuss what works for this film and what might be at the bottom of the handful of negative reviews (Hint: It's cause the film centers women). This is a great film, continuing Pixar's tradition of having enough here for both adults and kids. Truth be told, there might be more here for adults than the kids.

Oh and the short film that airs before is designed specifically to punch you in the guts and give you all the feels.

Luke Cage Season 2 is bigger, more emotionally dark and better than Season 1. Season 2 really feels like it takes all the issues with the first season and addresses them to make this more of a black family crime drama than super hero show. And that's a good thing.

A lot of things work for this season:

  • A villain that challenges Luke both physically and mentally
  • The Family First theme of the season
  • Alfre Woodard's transformation with Mariah
  • The comic book teamups (Daughters of the Dragon, Powerman and Iron Fist)
  • The way the music is integrated into season and is important to understanding the themes and scenes
  • Not making Luke the central piece but leaving his character in a really interesting place
  • and more

Check out Kriss' video review as well as the audio review with Kriss & Phenom. We'll be back later with more in depth discussions of this season after it drops on the 22nd of June.

THEY KILLED DEMOS!  YOU BASTARDS!

The Doctor is furious that they killed one of our two favorite agents.  It's a great and action packed episode but did they have to kill our boy?  We watch as Papa J'onzz transfers his life experiences to J'onn in preparation for his passing, Alura arrives on Earth, and that dummy Coleville helps the Dark Priestesses resurrect Reign.  The finale promises to be heartbreaking.  Killing a major side character hit hard, and we get a feeling not everyone is going to make it out of the finale alive.  The only drawback-this was a great opportunity to give Reign a truly iconic look in her rebirth.  They didn't take it, but it definitely doesn't take away from the story.

What happens when the crazy white girl and the altar boy meet? Sparks ignite ... literally. Shanna, The Doctor and Parrish discuss the two-hour premiere of Marvel's Cloak & Dagger as well as everything from police brutality, The Talk and how this version of Ty and Tandy differs from their comic counterparts.

We can't wait to see what happens on this season of Cloak & Dagger and if these heroes will go from damaged teens to whole and healthy crime-fighters.

At the close of yet another LeBronukah season, we've got my favorite co-host to talk through it all in my wife Susan! No, I wont make her the permanent co-host so don't ask me. But we will talk through the NBA Finals, White House visits, securing the bag and more. Also be sure to check out this week's must read, an editorial by Deborah Epstein who recently resigned from the NFL's Domestic Violence Commission.

In another spectacular episode, we get the gun episode Arrow wish it would have done, J'onn preparing to say goodbye to his father, and the Dark Priestesses and their crew gaslighting Kara on her new home world.  We discuss the need for killing that is sometimes necessary, Mon El coming clean about his reason for staying, and guess at potential season deaths.  Lena is always prepared, and we wonder if that is going to be our lead in to season 4 because she could become the Big Bad, but, let's be honest, is she really wrong?
