It’s official! We now have a Jace Turner Villain Agenda.

Every time we think that maybe he can be turned to the side of supporting the mutant underground, something terrible happens. Jace's daughter is killed by mutants. After that, Dreamer wipes his memory causing Jace to relive finding out his daughter died. Jace is then forced to watch an entire Sentinel Services team to kill each other.

Jace gone folks.

A lot that happens in these last 3 episodes:

  • Reed finds out that he comes from a long line of mutants including his father
  • Otto Strucker suppressed Reed's x-gene
  • Otto Strucker confirms the generational connections of the x-gene
  • Andy & Lauren’s powers and their connection to the Fenris Twins
  • The Stepford Cuckoos on TV

Listen to our full review and find out why we hope this show comes back for a season 2.

The Shape of Water is Guillermo Del Toro’s best film since Pan’s Labyrinth and quite honestly, might be his best film ever. First off, Sally Hawkins pulls off an amazing performance as Elisa. Hawkins sells a character who is mute using all of her acting talents outside of speech and she nails it. With this performance, Hawkins is a clear front runner for Best Actress. And she’s not alone in putting in a wonderful performance. Michael Shannon’s Richard Strickland is truly a hideous man who is the true monster and villain of this film. Shannon’s character continually morphs into a despicable human being throughout the film. Richard Jenkins, Octavia Spencer and Michael Stuhlbarg also put in great performances.

Double O Fitz is Back! The last Agents of Shield episode of 2017 is here and it tells us the story of how Fitz got to "the future" with his team. This episode also features the return of Nick Blood as Agent Hunter and we never thought we would say this but "Damn it was good to see Hunter again." This episode answers a lot of questions and ties all the way back to Season 3 but as usual with Agents of SHIELD, answers come with new questions.
 
Listen as we discuss this episode and tease some of the discussions that will come up on our Mailbag episode next week.

With our fearless host under the weather, this bonus episode of the podcast has two guests to help carry the load, Justin from ThreeFifs and Nata from UpRoxx, and the three of them break down real locker room talk as the #metoo movement hits sports. And it's about damn time. We talk about Jerry Richardson's 'decision' to sell the Panthers, wonder what else the NFL is scared of, and decry the culture that has victimized women for so long. If it can be destroyed by the light, then it needs to be brought into that light.

We're back with another movie review, this time to review the movie Downsizing, starring Matt Damon, Hong Chau, Kristen Wig, Jason Sudeikis and Christoph Waltz. The first thing to know about Downsizing is that the trailers are a bit of a lie. Some actors like Jason Sudeikis appear often in the trailer but have smaller roles and then there's characters like Hong Chau's that barely appear and yet have a significant role in this movie.

Over all Downsizing is an interesting concept of a film that should be much better than what it actually is. Had the focus been more on Chau's character and less on Damon as well as more accurate trailers, this movie might be received more warmly

A social satire in which a guy realizes he would have a better life if he were to shrink himself.

John Minus of the Decepticomics joins UDPod today, as we lean on his vault of knowledge from a lifetime of absorbing New York sports media. We talk about Stanton's kinda shady move to NYC, discover a well of hatred for Phil Jackson I didn't think was possible and decry the alleged poor treatment of an alleged good quarterback. Plus, I lie to one of my friends, we say happy trails to Devin Hester, and we follow the Ball family to Lithuania.

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.

After Kara provided us with the clapback for the ages in the crossover, Reign begins her mission, dispensing her special brand of justice that includes not only a lot of murder and an attempt on the life of Morgan Edge, but also includes her beating the brakes off of Kara.  It was literally a combination of a Fellowship of the Rings Gandalf moment and a Rocky "Throw the damn towel" moment.  We also get our Lena/Jimmy ship sailing, and the ongoing awkwardness between Kara, Mon-El, and Imra.  Also, get Papa J'onnz some brown liquor please.

Kriss & Dpalm are back for another Super Tuesday Recap episode. We're discussing the mid-season finales of The Flash (S4E9 Don't Run) and Legends of Tomorrow (S3E9 Beebo The God of War). We're also trying something new with this episode. First up, we're combining the review into just one episode instead of two separate ones. We know most people listen to both and instead of clogging the feeds with two separate downloads we figured it would be easier to just put up one episode. We will have time stamps below for those that want to skip ahead.

 
Also, we're going to be doing a better job of including other information and general discussion in our episode. For this episode we open up talking about Tom King's latest issue of Batman and how it really nails both Batman and Superman. We end the episode with Dpalm giving his idea of how Warner Brothers can fix the DCEU. Check it out!
 
Oh and we did the show on Facebook Live. Don't worry, you didn't miss an announcement. It was a last minute decision by me (Kriss) to test out going Live. We're going to be running some tests for the next few shows so that hopefully we can start doing them more frequently in 2018.

Kriss is joined by Tim (@PeoplesCritc) to review The Post. But before that we discuss our current experiences watching screeners for this year's Oscar Contenders, some films you should keep an eye out for, the beautiful artwork sent to us for Get Out and more. This is an early preview of what the Movie Trailer Reviews podcast will be providing in 2018 as we try to expand our shows beyond just reviews.

As for the review...Steven Spielberg's The Post is an easy contender for Best Picture this year. Aside from starring two heavy hitters like Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, the films subject matter is is extremely relevant in the era of Trump. The film follows the story of how the Washington Post became a national paper thanks to the publishing of the Pentagon Papers and their fight against the Nixon White House which sought to shut them down.

I will be honest and didn't realize that Tommy Wiseau's The Room had a cult following like it does. I mean I should have, but I tend to forget truly terrible movies like The Room. But I quickly found out that The Room is a pretty big deal to some as our screener for The Disaster Artist, was packed. The Disaster Artist is basically James Franco and his friends recreating The Room and telling the story about how Wiseau and his friend Greg made one of the worst movies to exist.

There's something weirdly ironic about the film about a bad film being a great film. But that's where we are. James Franco actually shows a lot of acting chops to pull off how terrible and confusing Wiseau is. This is a hilariously good movie about the worst film ever made.

Listen as I'm joined by Tim to talk about what made this film work.

So, how was your weekend?

In case you haven't heard, UGA won the SEC Championship and is headed to the 2017 Playoff. We've got Chad Floyd from DudeYouCrazy to look at the Georgia Revenge Tour, and the matchups ahead. Plus, we talk the NCAA coaching carousel, the NFL buying silence, Conor McGregor's troubles, and the slammed closed window for the Clippers. We even examine the first teams out of this year's College Football Playoff.

AGENTS OF SHIELD IS BACK!
 
We knew that season 5 of Agents of Shield would take us to space and face the agents off against aliens but not like this. Not only is the team (most of them) in space but they've also traveled through time and are in a future with a destroyed earth. The first two episodes answers some questions but like many Agents of Shield episodes, leaves us with even more questions. It's also very clear that they had fun time misleading us about the challenges the team would face and it's even more dire than we imagined. 
 
This is going to be a fun season to watch and it looks like the cast and crew know it too. Listen as we break down what happened in these first two episodes and why we're glad the show is back.

The second to last Insanity Check of 2017! Kriss is joined by Karen from The Black Guy Who Tips. We talk about Karen & Rod heading to to Seattle for PodCon and how we all have to find time to take a break and rest. We then delve into the latest craziness involving men pulling their dicks out at work and harassing women. Then there's the "wonderful" Senate tax "cut" bill that's passed the Senate and gotten one step closer to being law. Wonder how all those "Democrats are equally as bad as Republicans" folks are handling it.

Technology might have eaten this past week's podcast, but we were able to sit with Connor Tapp of 247Sports to discuss the coming de-facto play in weekend in college football. Before we talk between the lines, we break down the super-active coaching carousel as Tennessee stumbles to still not having a coach, FSU trying to figure it out and Florida falling backwards into probably the right hire.

A 2-night, four show crossover requires us to pull out all the stops and so we’re bringing in the whole Super Tuesday Recap squad to discuss the Arrowverse (Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash & Legends of Tomorrow) crossover, Crisis on Earth-X.

But even better, thanks to Marvel Studios dropping the first teaser trailer for Avengers: Infinity War and so we HAVE to start off by discussing that comic goodness. Then it’s on to the main event with the CW & WB TV showing us what a proper Justice League looks like (yeah, shots fired). We discuss it all:

  • Evil Kara & Evil Oliver
  • The Return of Tommy Merlyn
  • Oliver being the Green Batman
  • Felicity being a trash wedding guest
  • Sara & Alex hooking up
  • The Marvel references and homage to old school Superman
  • Mick Rory continuing to be a national treasure
  • Victor Garber going out like a Legend
  • Leo Snart and The Ray
  • And More

You’re not going to want to miss this supersized episode that covers it all (even your listener feedback). Make sure you subscribe to Super Tuesday Recap on iTunes/Stitcher/Google so you don’t miss an episode.

It might be Thanksgiving but Arrow wasn't giving us any breaks as they put out episode 7 of season 6, Thanksgiving out on it's regular time and night. And it wasn't just a filler episode as a lot of things happen. Agent Watson makes her move and has Oliver arrested for being the Green Arrow. This probably would have had more impact if they did a better job of setting Watson's motivations like they have Jace Turner on The Gifted. Instead she just comes off as mean for no reason. We also get some internal strife in the team between Curtis & Felicity and then Diggle and Oliver. We discuss who we think was right and wrong in both these cases. Cayden James also sets up the team.
 
 
The one good thing for the team is that Thea wakes up from her coma. Which leads to us discussing how the show handles some of its female characters and what they can do to fix it.

We're finally here to review/discuss the final two episodes of Inhumans Season 1! Kriss and Dpalm are joined by another Super Tuesday Recap veteran, Shanna. The trio recaps/discusses the final two episodes and recap the whole season. So first things first, it almost feels as if these episodes were filmed along with the first two because they seem to be shot a lot better and that some time (and money) was put into them. And Triton returns and we have to apologize for all our Fish-Boy jokes because he's...actually pretty good. For some reason the show decided that the actor and character with the best fight scenes should be "killed" in the first 5 minutes of the season then rushed back out of the blue in the final 2 episodes.

It's decisions like that leave us scratching our heads as to why this entire season was managed the way it was. If the show was more like the final 2 episodes and less like the first 6,

It's been a while but....WE'RE BACK! Feels like a while since we've done a Character Corner. But we're back now and it's time to enter once again into the Bat-Family, this time with the mantle of Batgirl.

We then move on to Stephanie Brown who held both the title of Robin (albeit short) and Batgirl as well as coming into her own as Spoiler.

Welcome back to Secret Sauce! We change up the format of the show a bit as we continue to play around with different ways of celebrating black women. I am joined this episode by Tea from Fandom City and discussed sexual assaults on black women, when body shaming goes wrong and a change of heart. I then take a bit of a break to to interview Diane Liston from Styles of Imagination an award winning clothing manufacturer and designer from Cleveland Ohio. In my interview with Diane we talk about her first creation, her tenacity for success and why she believes sewing is a lost trade.

She has become extremely successful with clothing in over 15 boutiques across the company under the signature line NGU (which stands for 'Never Give Up').  She has also been featured in more than 20 magazines, highlighted on local TV and given opportunities to work with local and national celebrities like John Legend and Dwight Eubanks from the Atlanta Housewife franchise. A mentor in her community Ms. Liston advises to be a little aggressive to be successful in business and drops some entrepreneurial gems on the show.

 
As a gift to the listeners of Secret Sauce Ms. Liston is giving a 15% discount on her website www.stylesofimagination.com using coupon code Nov2017.

For a show that has no problem having fun and comedic moments, Welcome to the Jungle is a pretty serious episode for Legends of Tomorrow. Considering the horrors and tragedies of Vietnam, it's nice to see that this show found a way to honor that seriousness while still making the episode feel like it fits with the series. Seeing Mick have to come to deal with the fact that he might be the real monster and not his father is a reminder of how far this character has come from the crazy person he was in season 1. The revelation that these "random" anachronisms might not be so random because the legends keep running into either their younger selves or relatives has us wondering about what could really be going on. Amaya trying to connect with Grodd and in the process realize that Kuasa might also be a victim of what was done to her and not just evil because she was born that way will lead to some interesting things when she comes face to face with Grodd and Kuasa again.
 
This episode was great and they sidelined Sara for the whole episode. Imagine that.

This episode of The Flash, Therefore I Am, is pretty significant considering it drops the week of the Thanksgiving Holiday. Barry finally confronts DeVoe and we learn about The Thinker's origin through flashbacks. The flashbacks are handled pretty well and give context to who DeVoe is and how he fits into Barry's world. It's handled pretty well. We're excited to see how Barry handles dealing with a villain who is going to challenge him intellectually and not just in a foot race.

Barry comes face to face with DeVoe, whose past is revealed through flashbacks.

Mon El returns and begins acting in a suspicious way.  We discover it's because he's been gone 7 years in his time, not the 7 months as we know it, and got a new wife but doesn't want to be a grown up and tell Kara.  In other words, these two don't know how to have a grown up conversation and them splitting up is the best thing since Betty White.  In more interesting plot developments, Samantha gets her Henry Gates on as she seeks to discover why she appears to be developing supernatural abilities and Papa J'onzz gives J'onn some life lessons.

It feels so good to be back in the driver's seat, and to answer all questions: yes it feels different podding as a married man. To help ease the transition, MTR editor-in-chief Kriss is with us to catch up on everyting we missed. Most importantly, isn't it weird that a league that decries distractions seems to be in the business of the manufacturing, cultivation and distribution of didtraction? Plus we talk WWE (sorry!), UGA's brief run at number 1, the NFL actually producing watchable football, the benching of Tyrod Taylor, the return of the NBA, and the ballad of Joel Embiid.

Kriss & Dpalm are back to review season 6, episode 6 of Arrow, Promises Kept. Once again this show surprises us by having a quick turnaround on Diggle coming clean about using the experimental drug. This also has us worried that something more sinister is around the corner. On the Slade/Oliver side, while we enjoyed the Slade moments, the stuff with his son Joseph felt a bit unearned. But we think we'll be seeing more of Joe later on this season as well as more of Slade.

As Slade continues to uncover clues about his son's last few years, Oliver makes a big decision. Meanwhile, the Green Arrow leads the team into battle against "The Dragon," a villain who is stealing valuable tech in Star City.

With all the crazy stuff going on in the world it's beginning to look like maybe we got pulled into another universe. Kriss thinks we've been pulled in Earth-2 and we have plenty of stories this episode that seem to suggest that. Joi (@jumpedforjoi) from Black Girl Nerds joins Kriss to discuss Justice League, Lena Dunham being trash again and so much more. Check it out.

We're back to review more episodes of The Gifted and we're asking the hard hitting questions: What does Dreamer's breath smell like?

Ok so that's more like Kriss asking that (and other ridiculous things) but we do have fun reviewing/discussing episodes 4 through 7 of The Gifted. We talk about how the Strucker's work and how it really represents a lot of the things we've seen from X-Men comics. We get into Jace's terrible tragedy and how he's still struggling with trying to track down people he thinks are criminals but not going too far (like with Doctor Campbell). Oh and we get into all the messiness of Dreamer/Johnny/Clarice and how well Lorna & Marko are together.

Justice League is out and well...yeah. By now you've seen the reviews (even Kriss's early one hopefully) and you're probably wondering if you should see it. Well, that's what this review is for. Kriss and Phenom discuss the many problems with the film (spoiler-free) but why that should discourage you from checking it out. Bottom Line: Warner Brothers and DC seem to be very self-aware with this film and are attempting to fix the problems. But timing (and the director) didn't leave much time to course correct in a non-messy way. And that's how we get Justice League. We discuss what works and what doesn't.

In addition to that, we also talk about the Rotten Tomatoes controversy with them withholding the score for Justice League until a few hours before release. It's bad and unethical and Rotten Tomatoes should be called out for it.

Legends of Tomorrow season 3 episode 6, Helen Hunt, is a well-timed episode that offers up a chance for the lades of Legends of Tomorrow to have their own #Feminism episode like the ladies did on The Flash last week. It takes on the fact that Men are Trash and will blame women for their problems, the toxic nature of men in Hollywood and even gives us a Wonder Woman easter egg that pretty much establishes the Amazon Warrior in the universe. All that and we still get Stein & Jax switching bodies on some Freaky Friday stuff. 

Listen to get our full recap/review. Make sure you subscribe to Super Tuesday Recap on iTunes/Stitcher/Google as well as our Youtube channel (MTRNetwork)

The Legends track down an anachronism in 1930s Hollywood, where Helen of Troy has started a war between two film studios.

Dpalm is back and so the Super Tuesday Recap team is whole again. We discuss episode 6 of Season 4 of The Flash, When Harry Met Harry. While this episode is definitely funny, it also felt a bit off. The show tried to treat this villain with a bit more seriousness and sympathy but it instead felt like a miss. The seriousness crammed in between Dibny being over the top and Harry & Cisco dealing with the "Council of Wells" just made the episode feel off balanced. Still, we enjoyed the way Barry is trying to teach Ralph about being a hero and Cisco forcing Harry to realize his biggest problem is that he doesn't even like himself.

Listen for our full discussion and make sure you send us your comic book questions/recommendations for our mailbag episode that will be recorded next week. Send your email to Mailbag@MTRNetwork.Net.

When Native American artifact collectors are attacked by a meta who bring inanimate objects to life, Barry turns to a surprising ally for help; Harry enlists Cisco's help to determine the identity of The Thinker.

To find healing and a way forward in the wake of personal loss, Kara and Alex return to their childhood home, where the audience is treated to a flashback of the girls as teens trying to solve the murder of Kara's friend Kenny (Ivan Mok, The Americans). And Yes, they killed Kenny...the bastards.  The episode contains a simply story but some emotionally powerful moments as we watch Kara deal with being a perpetual outsider, even in her own home, and the transformation of her relationship with Alex (Olivia Nikanen, The Americans, Person of Interest).

Pixar does it again. Coco is a another great animated film that kids will love and will win over adults. Pixar and Disney have really moved to diversify their animated films and this film embraces its Mexican characters by immersing them in the culture and having them voiced by an authentic and diverse cast. This film definitely has some adult themes in it and gets very real towards the end that might have you tearing up. The music is also a big sell. It's as authentic as it's cast. 

Listen to our full review. I think we forgot to give it an official score but...it's good. Like really good. Make sure you bring tissues.

Kriss is joined by Justin (@LJay90) to review/discuss the latest episode of Arrow. Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke returns in the latest episode of Arrow and it's everything we've been waiting for. Slade and Oliver team up to try to rescue Slade's son Joseph but when the diplomatic way fails, Deathstroke the Terminator lives up to his name. Let's just say there's a lot of swords going through people while they're also being shot up. But more than just that, we get the reveal of who Vigilante is and while it's someone we never suspected, it works out pretty well to set up Dinah for some much needed character development.
 
After the review we also discuss Disney trying to buy 20th Century Fox and why people should stop thinking that Disney would a) water down Fox's R-rated comic book movies and b) that the R-rating is what made Deadpool a good film. And we also discuss Brian Michael Bendis leaving Marvel for DC and what problems could come fromt hat.

It's been a crazy week and Justin (@LJay90) from 3FifsPodcast joins Kriss to discuss. Amazingly we have to start off by first saying we're anti-pedophilia, anti-nazi and anti-rape and as crazy as that sounds, this week proves that those are no longer givens. We get into the hot topic of all the men accused of sexual assault in Hollywood, politics and in our lives. Kriss tells the story of why he had to let go of his best friend and we also talk about the craziness of the GOP not distancing themselves from Roy Moore. You won't want to miss.

Topics:

  • The Agents of Shield Season 5 trailer
  • Disney is trying to take over the world
  • The money that comic book films make is insane
  • The brave women that come forward about sexual assault
  • The GOP choosing party and pedophilia over honor and morals
  • Why Men need to stand up and speak out
  • Kriss tells the story of what happened with a former host of the podcast
  • Fox News thinks Church is the best place to get shot
  • Great Moments in White Privilege
  • Woman ties son to top of mini-van to hold down kiddie pool

Kriss is joined by Tim (@peoplescrtic) to review Murder on the Orient Express, a film based off the novel by Agatha Christie. This is an interesting film because Kenneth Branagh both directs the film and plays the lead. And while it's definitely not the first time a director has played the lead in their own film, it feels different with a film of this scale. We also think that while Branagh does a good job as both director and actor in this film, it also leads to the rest of the cast not being used to their full potential.

Legends of Tomorrow season 3 episode 5, Return of the Mack, has one of the funniest and greatest action scenes we've seen in the Arrowverse. Damien Darhk killing a bunch of Time Bureau agents to Mark Morrison's Return of the Mack is just brilliant to watch. This entire episode is great and exemplifies why Legends of Tomorrow is one of the best shows in the Arrowverse.

The Flash continues to correct the wrongs of last season by being fun and taking changes. In episode 5 of season 4, Girls Night Out, the show takes a chance by not only not having Barry in the suit but not even having him use his powers. Instead we get an episode that focuses heavily on the ladies of Team Flash: Iris, Caitlin, Cecile and a special appearance by Arrow's Felicity. But this isn't just a funny filler episode. This episode helps fix some of the show's shortcoming when it comes to Caitlin and Killer Frost. Also, it's great to see Katee Sackoff (Battlestar Galactica) back in action and her character Amunet introduces us to another meta created by The Thinker.

This week to discuss, Kriss is joined by Rod from the Black Guy Who Tips to review and recap the episode. We go on several hilarious tangents and you're not gonna want to miss out.

Kriss is joined by Shanna who is filling in for Dpalm (Congrats on the wedding) this week for our Arrow Review. This episode, Reversal, shows Oliver switching roles with Felicity. Oliver finds himself as the man on the outside as Felicity and the team work to stop Cayden James who has resurfaced since Felicity helped him escape last season with Helix.
 
One thing Arrow has worked on the last two seasons is making Oliver Queen grow as a person and a character. We're really seeing that this season, particularly these last two episodes. Oliver has switched from needing the support of Diggle and Felicity to being their support system and helping them the way they helped him. We're still impressed that the show has taken the risk of not just having Oliver out of the suit for these two episodes but having Diggle fully integrated as being the Green Arrow. We know it won't last and that the fall for Diggle (and the whole team) will be rough. But it's still been fun watching them try something new.

We’re finally back reviewing Star Trek Discovery.  Originally we were going to do a review on episodes 3 - 6 but we had a bit of a delay so we’re going all the way up to episode 7. A lot has happened in that time. The Discovery’s spore drive is working but not without a few hiccups, Burnham is now the science officer of the ship and love seems to be in the air with the new crew member, Ash Tyler. But can he be trusted?
 
Listen for our full review of how the show is going, if the production value is staying up and we even through in a special CBS All Access Rant. Don’t miss it.
 
We’ll be back in a few weeks to review the next 2 episodes of Star Trek: Discovery and recap the first half of the season. Make sure you subscribe to Super Tuesday Recap on iTunes/Stitcher/Google so you don’t miss an episode.

The CW was 2 for 2 Tuesday night with a great episode of The Flash and an awesome episode of Legends of Tomorrow. Phone Home. This episode felt more like a Legends episode from last season. There was no Time Bureau and the team didn't have problems because they were being stupid.

The Flash had it's best episode of the season and maybe of the last couple seasons. Elongated Journey Into Night is just a fantastic episode. We get the running joke about Joe "glowing", Danny Trejo as Gypsy's dad (or should I say Cynthia) and we get Ralph Dibny, the Elongated Man joining the show and the team. Yup, its safe to say that Season 4 of The Flash has gotten it's groove back.

Kara is forced to face her past and her demons when a misguided spiritualist (Chad Lowe, Pretty Little Liars) develops a following dedicated to worshipping her.  Samantha struggles with balancing motherhood and her new job, and Alex faces the elephant in her relationship with Maggie that threatens their future.

The best part of this episode is the lack of a clear villain.  It highlights the internal battle Supergirl and Superman face-the burden of who to save, remembering all those saved and those lost, and what that burden does to one's psyche.

Our THOR RAGNAROK Review is here! 

Thor: Ragnarok is the best reviewed comic book movie of 2017 so far and is just the best comic book movie of the year period.  Director Taika Waititi takes one of Marvel's weaker properties (movie wise) and delivers a hit with Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson and Mark Ruffalo. The movie does a great job of balancing the humor with real stakes. Hela is a great villain and kills A LOT of people. Tessa Tompson is amazing as Valkyrie and talking Hulk is everything people have been waiting for.

Listen to our full non-spoiler review to find out why we like this movie so much.

Thor: Ragnarok drops this week and so it's time to wrap up our Thor Character Corner with part 2. First we quickly cover what happened when we last left Thor during part 1. Ragnarok happened and Thor and the rest of Asgard died. And Thor stayed dead for a while. When the road to Civil War started, Thor was still gone but Mjolnir makes an appearance, falling to Earth as the Gods died, tearing a hole that allows Doctor Doom to escape Hell. After a brief attempt by Doom to take the hammer for himself, we then get Tony Stark's bad idea to make a Thor clone that...has disastrous results.   

Finally Thor returns. We focus on two writers this episode that really encapsulate Thor's return and that's J. Michael Straczynski (JMS) and current Thor writer Jason Aaron. JMS and Aaron really lean into the idea of Thor and the rest of Asgard being Gods. In a way, Thor is written much like Jesus is from the Bible and there are a lot of great stories. Asgard is reformed above Broxton, Oklahoma and while it seems like this could be a repeat of what happened the last time Thor & Asgard floated above earth, this time is vastly different. 

JMS and Jason Aaron really call into question not only what it means to be a God and if mortals still need Gods.

You'll want to listen to our full Character Corner as we follow the journey of Thor (Odinson) to Thor (Jane Foster).

Kriss and Dpalm are back to review the latest episode of Inhumans, The Gentleman's Name is Gorgon. There's no reason to beat around the bush, Inhumans is clearly limping it's way to the finale of this first (and probably only) season. There is more Crystal in this episode and we get to see her use her powers a little bit more (kinda) but Isabelle Cornish really is struggling with her acting with the character. The rest of the episode isn't necessarily bad but it does feel like the show is cutting corners because of the condensed season and the pacing and story telling are suffering. Maximus dealing with Tibor's betrayal should have been a more interesting plot but instead it just feels cheap and unearned. With only two more episodes left can Inhumans right the ship and stick the landing? We'll see. Listen to get our full review.

Kriss and Dpalm are back this week to review Arrow season 6 episode 3, Next of Kin. Arrow shocked us both by actually doing what we hoped the Flash would do with Kid Flash and is actually letting Diggle put on the hood and lead the team as the Green Arrow. This is a pretty significant shift for a show and while Diggle does have some struggles and they're clearly going with a storyline to get Oliver back, it works out pretty well. Listen for our full review of how Diggle does on his first episode as Star City's vigilante.

Kriss and Dpalm are back to review season 3 episode 3 of Legends of Tomorrow, Zari. We meet the new member of the crew, Zari and with that this season starts to feel like a better version of season 1. We have two crew members that are tied through elements of the past (Zari and Amaya) and have a connection to the villain. We're way more confident that they'll pull this off this season than the first though. Mick Rory is the MVP of this episode. He has some great one liners and reactions to situations. Sara loses (scaring us all), Nate gets high and Gary fucks up. Listen to our full review to hear us discuss it all.

We're back with another review/discussion about The Flash. This season has done a really good job of resetting the show to be more fun while still having serious moments. Hazard turned out to be a pretty formidable foe. We also got to see more of The Thinker's involvement with the new Metas which has a Wells Season 1 feel to it but still fresh. There will probably be some disappointment with the treatment of Wally and while valid, we make a pretty good point as to why it's not that bad.

The richest season of sports is back, as all the major sports are in full swing, and the daily battle for headlines is fully engaged. This week, we've got Justin from the Three Fifs Podcast to talk the quarterback drought in the NFL, kicking off a season full of storylines in the NBA, and America uniting behind the Not-Yankees in baseball. We cover all of this plus Houston Nutt's final vengeance this week on #UDPod.

When it was first announced that Fox would be doing a X-Men TV show, a lot of us were rightfully skeptical. Fox has had the rights to the X-Men for over 17 years and while their animated cartoons certainly resonated, their live action movies leave a lot to be desired for the fans of the X-Men. But after three episodes, The Gifted is proving to be the live action X-Men we've been waiting for. Sure, they don't have costumes and the X-Men and Brotherhood aren't on the show now (they've "disappeared"), but the show nails everything that makes the X-Men so great. From the allegory to civil rights to how emotions affect mutant's powers. It's all in there. We discuss the first three episodes of The Gifted and talk about why we love it so much and what we expect (and hope to see) from the rest of the season.

You can listen to our full discussion by streaming the episode below, watching it on our Youtube Channel or subscribing to the Super Tuesday Recap feed on iTunes/Stitcher/Google.

The Inhumans is in a weird place. There are certain elements of this episode that work really well and make sense in a shorter season. But then there are other things that clearly would have benefited from at least 13 episodes.We think that the relationships on the show would have benefited from a longer season. This episode had much better chemistry between Black Bolt and Medusa than when we first saw them together in the pilot. And Gorgon & Karnak together are also pretty good. There's a good show here, we just wish it had been given the proper chance to develop.

Kriss and Dpalm are back to review Arrow, this week with episode 2 of season 6, Tribute. So far we're enjoying this season and we think the show is doing a good job of avoiding the obvious minefields we thought they would hit (William on the show could be a disaster). We like how William is handled this episode and we also like that the question is finally asked about how some of Team Arrow is making their money. We have questions about how Diggle will be written with his injury, but overall we're enjoying it. Make sure you listen to the episode for our full review.

Kriss is joined by Jeff (@JeffJSays) for this episode of The Insanity Check. We talk about Jeff helping out MTR Network at NYCC and why it's important for black media to work together. Then we address the Harvey Weinstein allegations and why its bigger than what most people think. Most people have something to say but a lot of those people need to do a better job with their actions.

So, this review starts with a  bit of a debate between Kriss and Dpalm. Kriss doesn’t think that the writing is doing the Legends any favors by making them seem really incompetent (Particularly Nate, Ray and Jax this episode). Dpalm makes the point that after last season the show has earned our trust and we should just enjoy the ride. Despite the difference of opinions we still find things we can agree on with this episode.

We first start off with: That Black Panther trailer. Kriss and Dpalm talk about why we need to just let people have their fun and excitement for Black Panther. It’s been a long time coming and we deserve to be happy, particularly considering that everything we’ve seen has surpassed our expectations. Even then, it shouldn’t matter if the film is mediocre or not, the historical relevance of this film is already enough to be excited about.

Then we move on to reviewing the actually episode. The Flash so far is back on track this season by focusing on what made the first season so enjoyable: Having Fun. We got some great uses of Barry's powers this episode (taking apart a moving car and stopping each piece of grenade shrapnel). But we also got much better writing for the relationships. Barry and Iris have always had communication issues and with Barry back, we could have gotten another season of stretching that out. Instead the show finally addresses one of the biggest issues from the last 3 seasons and does it in a pretty good way. Plus we get Cisco in the doghouse, Barry's new hi-tech suit and more.

We’re a few weeks out from Thor: Ragnorak being released so I guess it’s time to drop our latest Character Corner: Thor Part 1!

First off, we recorded this over a month ago so please excuse any outdated references. If you’re listening to this I’m assuming Trump hasn’t killed us all so that’s a positive. Anyway, in this first part of a two part series, we cover Thor Volume 1 and Thor Volume 2. Our main focus though is the Walt Simonson run from volume 1 that ran from issues 337 – 382. Simonson both wrote and draw these issues and the entire run is a masterpiece. He introduces Beta Ray Bill, gives us an epic battle with Sutur, Skurge’s Last Stand and even turns Thor into a frog. It’s a wonderful run that is always at the top of any “Best of Thor” list.

We then get into Dan Jurgen’s volume 2 which starts off rough but really picks up with the death of Odin and Thor taking over as the All Father. We find out why Thor’s connection to humanity is needed and the disastrous results if Thor fully embraces being a God without that connection. And then Ragnorak comes.

In both volumes 1 & 2 we see the story of Ragnorak with volume 2 fully seeing Ragnorak coming to fruition. If you want to prepare for Thor: Ragnorak come November 3rd, make sure you listen to this Character Corner, then check out the issues below. Every issue should be on Marvel Unlimited, so get to reading.

 

Issues:

  • Thor: Tales of Asgard (2009) – Remasters old Jack Kirby & Stan Lee stories that flesh out Odin & Asgard
  • Journey Into Mystery #83 – First Appearance of Thor
  • Avengers #1
  • Thor Volume 1
    • Walt Simonson’s Run
      • #337-340 – The Ballad of Beta Ray Bill
      • #340 – 353 – The Sutur Saga
      • #362 – Skurge’s Last Stand
    • Thor Volume 2
      • #36 – 43 - The Death of Odin
      • Gods on Earth – # 51- 58, Iron Man #64, Avengers #63

2017 may be trash in a lot of very important ways, but Columbia and Georgia are undefeated so I don't see the problem. We've got Rich Fann from PWTorch and Buffalo Wins.net talking about the problems on the men's side of US Soccer, the Left getting football in the culture war, no one loving Kevin Durant and even tell tale on when football quit him. Plus we get some insight into the messy quarterback picture in Buffalo, check in on the MLB playoffs, and college football went full chaos.

Inhumans is slowly finding its footing but with the shorter season, there's not much time left to rebound completely. That said, episode 4, Make Way For...Medusa is probably the best episode so far. There are still some issues with this episode. We wish that they focused only on Maximus, Black Bolt and Medusa this episode. That doesn't mean the other scenes were bad (well, except for Crystal) but it would have been nice just to stay focused on those three without making the episode feel overly stuffed. But that's a byproduct of a shorter season.

The last of our returning shows is here, Arrow Season 6. After the great season 5, we were a little nervous about how this season would start off but so far so good. The advances to Oliver's character from last season seem to be sticking and it's almost jarring not seeing a broken Oliver. The rest of the team however, does have a lot of demons. From Diggle to Quentin...even Oliver's son William (although Kriss thinks William needs to get his shit together). Check out our full review.

We're back from New York Comic-Con! Brandon (@Phenomblak) joins Kriss to talk about NYCC 2017 and how much we've grown from the first Con back in 2013. We talk about what was different this time, some of our equipment, why we can no longer run a two-person crew anymore and more. 

We then cover the news from the Marvel retailer's only panel at NYCC that revealed the racist and bigoted comic book store owners and we have a few choice words for these idiots (Spoiler alert: they're bad at running a business). We also touch on the Harvey Weinstein allegations but it will be covered more on the next episode.  

Make sure you subscribe to our Youtube channel to get all of our interview videos from New York Comic-Con.

Topics:

  • NYCC Recap
  • Cigarette breathe vs Weed vs Coffee Breath
  • Kriss isn't a fan of the smell of weed
  • Great Moments in White Privilege
  • Complaining comic book store owners are just bad business owners
  • Men Are Trash - the Harvey Weinstein allegations are proof of this

On the surface Happy Death Day just seems like another Groundhog Day rip off that is bound to be stupid and suck. So imagine our surprise when...we actually enjoyed it. This film is extremely self aware and so it avoids a lot of the pitfalls of other teen PG-13 horror films. The writing is pretty smart, it's funny and bottom line, entertaining. Not much more you can ask for. Listen to our full non-spoiler review for all the details on why you should check this film out.

Legends of Tomorrow returns for season 3 by continuing to focus on its strong suits. Aruba-Con sees the Legends being “fired” by Rip Hunter who has now formed the Time Bureau to handle all time anomalies. But we quickly see that Captain Sara Lance and the Legends can be just as useful as they can be destructive. As Mick said “Sometimes we screw things up for the better.”

Legends of Tomorrow continues to be the “fun” show out of all the CW DC TV shows. We get Sara kicking ass and beating up Julius Caesar, Nate and Ray bro’ing out and Rip Hunter becoming exasperated with the group he used to lead but knowing he can’t really control them (but might need them). But there are also serious moments like the moments between Jax and Stein.

All in all its great to have Legends of Tomorrow back and we can’t wait to see how this season unfolds. Listen to our full review/recap/discussion and more sure you subscribe to the Super Tuesday Recap Podcast to get all of our reviews.

We’re back with another season of The Flash. We were disappointed with the end of season 3 of The Flash but we’re confident that season 4 will turn it around. And the first episode, The Flash Reborn, starts off pretty strong. The writers seem to be course correctly out the gate with several of the problems we had last season:

  • Change in Tone – This episode felt more like the beginning of season 1. Last season was too dark and that started from the first episode. Despite Barry sacrificing himself last season, the opening tone is much lighter. Kid Flash and Vibe taking down Peek-a-Boo with Iris running command reminded us of early season 1. And that’s not to say that there weren’t serious moments due to Barry’s absence but there was a good balance
  • Improved Characterizations for Female Characters – Iris filling the Harrison Wells role and running Team Flash finally gives Iris something to do and a purpose beyond being the future Mrs. Allen. Joe and Iris have always been the foundation of Team Flash but Iris has never really had a steady place. We’re hoping that they continue to let her grow into this leadership role even with Barry being back. We even liked the way that Caitlyn was handled this episode. While we’re still nervous about how they handle the Killer Frost persona, in this episode her medical skills and knowledge were put front and center
  • Barry is Finally The Flash –

Now that’s not to say this episode was perfect. We think they rushed the return of Barry a bit. It would have been nice to stretch it out a bit more and see the team of Iris, Wally and Cisco working together more. But overall it was a pretty solid premiere episode.

We're back to review episode 3 of season1  of Inhumans, Divide...and Conquer. So first things first, this episode is better than the pilot and proves that Inhumans had no business being released in IMAX in the theaters in the first place. That said, there's still a lot of problems, with the main issue being Black Bolt and Medusa being uninteresting. But that could change. Some flashbacks to younger Maximus and Black Bolt revealed some missing context to their relationship and upbringing that could have been useful in the pilot. Plus there's some interesting new characters (Dr Declan) that give a glimpse of a bigger and more interesting storyline.
 
The show also maintains interest with villains that viewers can't get behind. While we know Maximus is the bad guy because he's trying to have his family killed, he makes a compelling case. He comes off as the voice for the "everyday man" and wants to end the discriminatory caste system. On paper he's the revolutionary out fighting for the people. His story is clearly the most interesting and relatable of the Royal Family (Karnak being the second). With only 5 episodes left, will that be enough to save this first season of Inhumans?  We'll see.

After all these years it’s good to have Star Trek back on TV (well…sort of). On this Super Tuesday Recap episode we’re reviewing the first three episodes of Star Trek: Discovery (The Vulcan Hello, Battle at the Binary Stars, Context is for Kings). It’s a fun episode that you’re going to want to check out!

Topics

  • Our thoughts on the three episodes so far and the direction the series is going
  • The blend of action and staying true to the exploration/science aspect of Star Trek
  • The one nitpick: They gotta stop doing prequel Star Trek shows. The technology is way too advanced
  • How Sonequa Martin-Green’s Michael Burnham takes aspects from both Kirk and Spock
  • Is Captain Lorca a sociopath? He seems to lack a care for the lives of his crew (and others). How will that play with Burnham who committed mutiny in order to save hers. How will Saru handle this?
  • Cadet 53% Tilly
  • The look of the Klingons and why maybe Star Fleet should have just left them alone
  • The stupid decisions CBS is making with Discovery being only available through CBS All Access in the states

We’ll be back in a few weeks to review the next 3 episodes of Star Trek: Discovery. Make sure you subscribe to Super Tuesday Recap on iTunes/Stitcher/Google so you don’t miss an episode.

STICK TO POLITICS, he screamed at the resident of the Oval Office. We recorded early today to avoid the latest twitter based hate mongering from the Cheeto in Chief, but we still had to talk about last week's quotes, and the NFL's subsequent response. On the other side of those waters, we break down the latest NBA moves, and the biggest and brightest NCAA Basketball scandal of my lifetime. Oh, and UGA and Columbia keep winning, so I celebrate that too.

And so it begins. We’re back with our Super Tuesday Recap reviews. First up, Kriss and Dpalm tackle Marvel’s Inhumans. There’s been a lot of talk about this show already and most of it is not good. So is it as bad as the early reviews say? No but…it’s complicated. Dpalm plays the “good cop” on this one while Kriss is “bad cop”. The short answer is, if you’re expecting something on par with other Marvel TV properties  like Agents of SHIELD or Agent Carter, you’re going to be disappointed. But there is potential (as proved by the previews for the rest of the season) and it could be that the pilot was just rushed and wasted too much money on the IMAX cameras. 
 
So we will be sticking with the show (hey, there’s only 6 more episodes left). Listen to our review and check out what we thought worked and what didn’t and what we think needs to change for this series to turn around. And make sure you’re subscribe to the Super Tuesday Recap podcast on iTunes/Stitcher/Google music to stay up with all our future reviews (Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, Star Trek Discovery and more).
 

Leave a 5 Star Review for us on the Super Tuesday feed and we'll read it on the next show!

The one benefit of Trump attacking athletes is that Dpalm and the Unanimous Decision podcast have to cover politics freeing up the Insanity Check to talk other things this week. For that, Kriss brings on Tim (@Peoplescrtic) to cover some entertainment and movie news that's been slipping through the cracks. We still touch on a little politics but we also hit the hard hitting stories like...the Mad Pooper.

It's hard to believe but it's that time again: The Return of the Fall Comic Book TV Shows. It's hard to imagine but 6 years ago all we had was Arrow. Now there's almost too many shows to count (or review). 

But before we get into the preview of the fall season, we're going to give you a taste of our MailBag discussions that we will be having with the super Tuesday Recap. Today we're starting off with Dpalm gushing over the latest issue of Detective Comics, Kriss talks Marvel Legacy #1 and then a preview of our "Fixing the DCEU" series starting wtih why Matt Reeve's Batman film needs to have Robin.

Then we get into the shows:

  • The Flash
    • How does Season 4 rebound from a really terrible 3rd season?
    • Does this have the strongest new set of cast members out of all the CW shows?
    • Are we going to FINALLY get the Rogues done right?
  • Arrow
    • Is there any way for Season 6 to live up to what Season 5 accomplished? 
    • Adding William can make this all go really bad, really fast
  • Legends of Tomorrow
    • Will this be the sleeper hit out of all the CW shows? Season 2 doesn't get enough credit for how consistent and good it was
    • Grodd is back and why is Darhk seemingly found a better place on Legends than on Arrow?
  • Inhumans
    • Is there anyway to save this show after the barrage of poor word of mouth and bad early critic reviews?
    • Is Kevin Feige just waiting for this to fail so he can give James Gunn a crack at the Inhumans in MCU Cosmic?
  • Agents of Shield
    • Is this the last season and are we all okay with that?

We're going to have a LOT of content coming out this fall so if you don't want to miss anything, make sure you subscribe to the Super Tuesday Recap feed in iTunes/Google/Stitcher. In addition to our regularly scheduled programming (The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Inhumans and Agents of Shield), we'll also be adding Star Trek Discovery, Black Lightning, The Punisher and possibly The Gifted (might review it like Discovery, a few episodes at a time). So make sure you subscribe. And if you really want to support us and our growth, sign up on our Patreon page.
