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.

The best laid plans of mice and men; a really fun show was planned to mock Kevin Durant's middle school social media usage and Kyrie's slow transformation into Kobe 2.0. Guest was gonna come on, tell some jokes and get out. But that was before Friday. That was before the highest office in the land was used as a bully pulpit to rile up public sentiment against athletes exercising their first amendment rights. Situations dictate actions, and I think that once again 45 has found himself in a situation he does not understand.

We’re back with another Character Corner and this time we’re covering the Inhumans. First off, let’s make it clear that we’re mainly focused on the Royal Family of the Inhumans. The “Nuhumans” or the Inhumans created on earth due to the Terrigen bomb that Black Bolt sets off during the events of Infinity are definitely a separate category. We might cover some of the more famous “Nuhumans” in a later episode. But for this, we’re focused mostly on the Royals

Issues:

  • Fantastic Four
    • Issue #36 - First Appearance of Medusa
    • Issue #44 - First Appearance of Gorgon
    • Issue #45 - 48 - The rest of the Royal Family & first "appearance" of Inhumans
    • Issue #150 - Crystal & Quicksilver wedding
  • Thor #146 - 153
  • Inhumans vol 1
  • Marvel Knights Inhumans (1998 - 1999)
  • Inhumans Vol 3 - Inhumans vs The Kree
  • World War Hulk
  • The Illuminati
  • Son of M
    • Quicksilver loses his powers and steals Terrigen Crystals to get them back. Leads to the kick off of Silent War
  • The Silent War
  • Secret Invasion: Inhumans
  • War of Kings
    • Entire reading list is here
  • Realm of Kings
  • Infinity

Welcome to a bonus episode of Secret Sauce! To celebrate the release of our 5th episode I thought it would be alot of fun to get the ladies of MTR together to discuss any and everything on our minds. We had a blast discussing sex, recommendations, comic books and Girls Trip but we were definitely missing an important member from the MTR Network...Coqui from Molecules and Shit. Come join the fun!

We’ve definitely hit our Super Tuesday Recap groove cause we’re back already with a new episode. This time we bring in Rod from The Black Guy Who Tips to also share his thoughts on Secret Empire. We also wanted to do a follow up to our last episode on Secret Empire now that the wrap-up issue, Secret Empire: Omega, has come out.  In our last episode we speculated about what would be in Omega and it turns out, it was even better than we thought. Secret Empire: Omega really lays out the moral issue at the heart of the event: How much different was Hydra Steve from the previous government and people in place? Hydra Steve's methods were direct and easy to call fascist but he was only able to get as far as he did because the moral compass of America was already in decay. 

Listen to the whole episode to find out what we thought.

I fought a hurricane and after 5 days without power, I won. And that means UDPod is back with more audio goodness, as we have ESPN alumni Nata Edwards back on to give an insider's look at what the hell happened with ESPN and Jemele Hill this week. On top of that, we talk the diminishing returns of Thursday Night Football, the overflow of bad quarterbacks, and all the happenings in college football including the dumbest football game of all time.

Kriss is joined by Aaron from the Black Astronauts podcast. It's a random and lighter show than the last several ones. We talk about Destiny 2 being addicting and why studios should stop putting their movies out around Star Wars (and other big blockbusters that always bury their films). We then talk about Kriss' simple tweet that went viral and what it says about what people think of when it comes to diversity in films. Why is white the default even for women? Why can't James Bond be black? We also hit the Jemele Hill ESPN issue and also discuss phone prices. Like I said...it was a random show.

Topics:

  • Destiny 2 is even more addicting than Destiny 1
  • Kathleen Kennedy had JJ Abrams in her back pocket
  • Stop putting your films near other blockbuster films
  • Kriss goes viral
    • Red Sparrow trailer
    • Why is the default always white?
    • There are no non-white people in Russia apparently
    • Why can't James Bond be black?
  • Arrow wants to do a Black Lives Matter episode (just no)
  • Jemele Hill and the mess ESPN created 
  • Calling White Supremacists 'White Supremacists' is more offensive than being a White Supremacist
  • The ESPN internal chat messages over ESPN's handling of the Hill situation
  • Do You Even Sci-Fi Bro?
  • Why the debate over phone prices explains the issues with getting Universal Healthcare.

It’s the Super Tuesday Recap you’ve been asking us for. Kriss, Dpalm and Justin are back to discuss Nick Spencer’s Secret Empire. If we sound a bit animated during the show it’s because there has been an incredible amount of poorly written takes on this event. Now of course, not everyone is going to like or even agree with everything that happens in this event. That’s perfectly okay. What’s not okay though is when entire articles are written or discussions are had and basic facts are misconstrued or worse, ignored.

Read Secret Empire and the associated Captain America books. Reading what other people have written (even us) doesn’t do it justice. This is a great Captain America story, the best Sam Wilson story ever written and a pretty relevant book in light of recent events in America.

This week Kriss is joined by Rich Jones to talk about all the craziness in the world. We talk about a lot of topics starting with how group think and pressure to conform to traditions leads to people feeling forced into doing certain things. Kriss tells his own hilarious story about faking speaking in tongues. We then move on to talking about all the hurricanes and how vulnerable the certain people are. Then finally there's a discussion about the sexism powerful ambitious women face.

Topics:

  • Kriss tells the story of when he faked speaking in tongues as a kid in church
  • Some are too poor to evacuate hurricane Irma 
  • Why does the media cover disasters like outside observers instead of helping?
  • Asking if Kathleen Kennedy is the right person to lead LucasFilms is blatant sexism
    • Two films, grossing $3 billion but her credentials are questioned
  • Sexism in the 2016 election (and after)
  • Hillary Clinton needs to shut up (even though Bernie didn't and Mitt Romney didn't)
  • Hillary is actually right
  • Great Moments in White Privilege
  • Black Woman Shoutout

  • Donate List: Bit.Ly/SupportBlackWomenHOU

Let's start with an apology up front: Kriss was definitely out of control this episode. But again, this is why we don't get the whole Super Tuesday crew together for reviews. Anyway, we wrap up our Defender review with episodes 7 & 8. We talk about where we see the characters going in their respective solo shows, who Maggie is at the end and sprinkled throughout are various words of wisdom like why you should always fight and old person. Yeah its that kind of show. And we end it all with a discussion on The Punisher and why it might not be the show everyone thinks they want.

We're wrapping up our Peter Parker Character Corner with the third and final part. We go over (quickly) the introduction of Carnage and then Peter & Harry's final confrontation. Then its on the one of the most controversial storylines: The second clone saga. No matter where you fall in the debate, we can all agree things got a bit out of control. It's not all bad though since Ben Reilly has become a pretty popular character and so despite the mess, there were some good outcomes. We then get into Civil War, One More Day and where Peter is now. Our Rogue Wars character corner covers a lot of the later issues of Peter so you'll definitely want to check that out.

Phenom and Kriss review Patti Cake$. Phenom had every intention of going into this film to roast it but he emerged surprised that it's actually a good film. It's funny, Danielle Macdonald is great as Patti and it's not the cultural appropriation vulture movie the trailers make it seem like. 

PATTI CAKE$ is centered on aspiring rapper Patricia Dombrowski, a.k.a. Killa P, a.k.a. Patti Cake$, who is fighting an unlikely quest for glory in her downtrodden hometown in New Jersey.
