MTR Network

Kriss is back to ring in the new year as we talk about Joe Mixon and the toxic culture that spawned his defenders, College Football Playoff shade based in fact, and NBA pettiness of the highest order. Plus, what is wrong with the Ravens, a quick look at the NFL Playoffs, and somehow MORE pettiness, this time in the NFL. We close out with a look back at the MMA year that was, and the UFC 207 Card coming this weekend.

Our Annual Movie Preview episode is here!  We preview the 2017 movie landscape. This time, Kriss & Dpalm are joined by Shanna and The Doctor since everyone loved our combined Supersized Super Tuesday Recap for the CW crossover. We have a great time discussing and laughing about some of the great (and not so great) movie prospects for next year. Even better we an epic rant from Dpalm about a certain Michael Bay movie involving giant robots that morph shapes. This is probably the most fun we've had on a Movie Preview.

Here are some of the trailers for movies we talked about (other than the comic book movie/big budget films we've all seen trailers for):

The last Insanity Check of 2016 and I had a special in-studio guest, International Superstar Bassey Ikpi. We talk about a lot of things on this seemingly random show (but everything is connected). We talk about way more than the topic list so give it a listen. Happy Holidays!

Kriss & Phenom review the last blockbuster of 2016 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This is a film that is basically telling the story that is mentioned in the scroller of Episode IV, about how the rebels got the plan for the Death Star. And it is very very good. Disney has found a way to revitalize the Star Wars franchise and at the same time fix small mistakes and annoying plot holes in the original trilogy. You're definitely going to want to check this out. Listen to our full (non-spoiler) review.

Kriss & Phenom review Collateral Beauty, or as Kriss calls it "The Ghost Pepper Challenge". Why does Kriss call it that? Because the challenge is to see how long into this movie can you go before Will Smith breaks you and causes you to cry uncontrollably. Seriously, this is a really good film that is great for Christmas and make you really want to be around the people you love. Listen to our full review.

College football season is over, so I thought it safe to invite my Ohio State fan friend Eric on the podcast. I was wrong. He celebrates underwhelming football, we talk about the final NCAA Playoff matchups, courts determining that college athletes aren't employees, Bomani Jones speaking for all Atlanta sports fans, Russel Westbrook might be a robot, and we celebrate the pettiness of LeBron James.

Double Winter Finale time! Kriss & Dpalm are here to recap the winter finales for Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow. With What We Leave BehindArrow answers the question of why this season is feeling so much like the first season. This show does a great job tying everything from this season to Season One with the reveal (or maybe not) of who Prometheus and why he's after Oliver. In The Chicago WayLegends of Tomorrow brings together the Legion of Doom (Thawne, Darkh, Merlyn) to give the Legends hell. Snart is also back (kinda) and we've missed him.  Check out our recap and also listen to use geek out over the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer and other Disney releases coming in 2017.

Marvel wants us to be happy. There are very few shows that can put so much into one episode and not feel crammed. We get the conclusion (?) of Eli and Robbie's story while Aida's really starts to begin. Bryan Singer needs to watch Agents of Shield to see how to really do speed effects. Oh and we get a #BlameKriss (just as bad as The Flash) and once again, Kriss is way too happy about it.

We also talk about Yo-Yo getting a 6 episode digital series (Slingshot), the Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2 trailer and the teaser for Spider-Man Homecoming .

The Winter Finale of The Flash is here. This was one of the better winter finale's this show has done. We get a glimpse of Earth-3 (Along with a quick Hamil as Trickster cameo), the origin of how Julian became Alchemy, background on Savitar, Wally getting his suit and...a potential glimpse of a #BlameKriss. There were some really great moments in this episode and while we keep saying that Barry is the real villain this season, the end of this episode shows Barry doing something that only a hero could do. Check out our recap and let us know what you think.

The triumphant return of UDPod! After a week away, we're back and better than ever with a solo podcast breaking down the last two weeks of college football. I explain how the hell we got to a playoff, point out the fact that the playoff doesn't actually solve anything, mourn UGA's season and look for hope in the future, talk about the college coaching carousel, winning trumping everything, and Jeff Fisher somehow, someway, getting extended through 2018.

Kriss, Dpalm, Shanna & the Doctor are back to wrap up the four show CW Aliens vs Heroes crossover with Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow. For Arrow, this is also its 100th episode and it really shows with how the episode has so many callbacks to the first couple of seasons. For Legends of Tomorrow, we pretty much get the big action set pieces we were waiting for when this crossover was announced. While sure there were some issues, overall, this was just really really fun to watch and experience and we can't wait for them to do it again. Check out our recap and let us know what you think.

Marvel doesn't play fair. They basically took the month off with Agents of SHIELD, then return the week of the big CW 4-part crossover and said "we got this". We can't stress enough how much we've enjoyed the 4-show crossover on CW but Agents of SHIELD is on a different level. This episode crams so much into one episode and it never feels stuffed or overbearing. There's a lot to talk about here so listen to our recap/party session.

This week is the four episode, four show crossover with all the CW Shows so we decided to combine our recaps and bring together the MTR Network. Shanna & the Doctor join Kriss & Dpalm to recap this week's episode of Supergirl and The Flash. This is a big recap episode with plenty to discuss and you won't want to miss it. We have everything from praise for CW for saving Supergirl to Oliver/Iris shipping, Barry Allen Time Travel defense and of course, Kriss hating joy. And we won't stop there, Shanna & the Doctor will be back for Sunday's recap of Arrow/Legends of Tomorrow to round out this mega four show crossover
