We're back to wrap up our Batgirls Character Corner with two special characters: Cassandra Cain and Kate Kane. Now, Kate really isn't a Batgirl as she never took up the mantle and her origin as Batwoman is pretty much autonomous from Batman but we're including her in this series anyway. Cassandra is also an interesting case. She's definitely a Batgirl, as she's the first to hold that mantle and get her own solo series, but in many ways she's closer to a Robin and a good case could be made for her being a direct heir to the Bat. 

We had a lot of fun discussing these characters and you're not going to want to miss this. This also might be the last Character Corner of 2017 but we'll be back in 2018 with more comic book character goodness.

Welcome to Level 35! We're back to discuss this week's episode of Agents of Shield, A Life Earned. This is also the first episode since the news of the Disney buyout of 21st Century Fox and so we have plenty to talk about. First, for Agents of SHIELD, Coulson and May uncover what Kasius and the Kree are up to and it's not good. Mack remains the moral center for the team and we have to remember how painful the Framework was for him last season. There's also a really great tense scene with Kasius questioning Jemma and Daisy. Oh and Fitz is back (or is he?).
 
On the Disney buyout side, we discuss a lot from the concern trolling to how we could see the X-Men and Fantastic Four enter into the MCU. Kriss and Dpalm have some good ideas that you're not going to want to miss.

Kriss is joined by Justin (@LJay90) from ThreeFifsPodcast for a special Insanity Check episode where Justin explains what Net Neutrality is, how we got here, why it's bad and what we can do to fight back.

*You'll also find it funny as we go from "Doug Jones has no chance" to "Omg...I think Jones might pull this off" during the show.

How to write a good comment
 
Gigi Sohn, the former council to Tom Wheeler gives 4 steps to follow when writing an FCC Comment
 
1. Write about yourself and how the net neutrality rules have affected you
If you use the internet in any capacity, write about it. Have you used the internet to launch your small business? Connect with a loved one? Complete your degree program, whether it was high school, college, or post graduate? Write about that experience.
 
2. Write about what you understand you are buying when you purchase broadband Internet access
When you buy a package from Verizon, what is it that you're actually buying? For the decision to be upheld the ISPs have to prove that their customers aren't just buying "internet access", but if that's all you're using them for then write about that.
 
3. Write about the choices you have (or don’t) for broadband Internet access
Sohn writes that, "An April 2017 FCC report demonstrates the fallaciousness of such an assertion – it shows that 58% of Americans have access to either zero or one broadband ISP, and 87% have access to just two." If you don't have a true choice, write about that.
 
4. Write about what role you think the FCC should have in overseeing the market for broadband Internet access
If you don't want the ISPs to run rampant as they have attempted to in the past and believe in strong federal oversight, let the FCC know!

Our full, spoiler-free, Star Wars: The Last Jedi review is here! We break down what we loved about this movie and why it just might be our favorite Star Wars film. There's a lot of story in this film and that's a good thing. It doesn't get bogged down and while it clocks in at 2 1/2 hours and feels like it, it doesn't feel too long. The Last Jedi is a visual masterpiece and you're definitely going to want to see this in a real IMAX theater to fully appreciate it. 

Listen to our full review as we go into more details (spoiler-free of course) about why this film worked. 

Our spoiler review will come out next week for Premium members. We don't want people to have the movie spoiled for them so make sure you avoid all spoilers until you see this film.

Having taken her first steps into the Jedi world, Rey joins Luke Skywalker on an adventure with Leia, Finn and Poe that unlocks mysteries of the Force and secrets of the past.

To be fair, Lavar did promise that all three of his sons would be pro basketball players. He never said in America.

This week, we've got MTR's own Ashanti to cover all the sports news that's out there. And there is a LOT, and it's always nice to get an outsider's perspective on these things. Sure, some of these things we cover feel like the sports business as usual, but it's nice to be reminded that sports business as usual can be pretty messed up sometimes.

As always Agents of Shield doesn't waste any time. They pack so much into each episode and never really give us a chance to breathe. Episode 3 of Season 5, A Life Spent, has about 3 different plot points going on at once but they're all related and have us wondering about where the show is going (in a good way). We break down this episode as well as give some of our theories (I hope you all are prepared for LMD Fitz) and you're not going to want to miss it. Also? We throw in a little Disney buying 20th Century Fox talk and the first teaser for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse starring Miles Morales. Give it a listen!

Typically Arrow goes into its breaks pretty strong but we're kinda disappointed in episode 9 of season 2, Irreconcilable Differences.  This episode felt like a big step back for the character of Oliver Queen into some behavior we thought we moved on from. It also felt like too much of a retread of plot points from previous seasons. There are a few small changes to the story that could have been made to give this a more fresh take on the "betrayed by someone on the team" angle and also protect the character changes they've made to Oliver.
 
Also the reveal of the team Cayden James has put around himself to go at Team Arrow seems a bit odd and doesn't have the impact we think they were going for.
 
Listen to get our full thoughts on this episode. Make sure you subscribe to Super Tuesday Recap so you don't miss a review.

Here it is! The last Insanity Check of 2017. Kriss is joined by Ashanti for this episode and it's a fun one. We hit some of the more serious topics involving men & sexual assault, Trump voters being idiots and how technology has erased privacy and it's too late to do anything about it.
