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.

Oliver celebrates Thanksgiving with his family but the happy moment is interrupted. Meanwhile, Black Siren returns to wreak havoc on the holiday.

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. To the uninitiated, the Batgirl mantle might just seem like the female-version of the Robin mantle. But that couldn't be further from the truth. 

We start this two-part series exploring the most well known Batgirl, Barbara Gordon and her journey from the darker of a Police Commissioner to Batgirl then to Oracle and back to 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.

    • John Ostrander and Kim Yale work to fix what Moore and others did

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.

Award winning fashion designer and clothing manufacturer Diane Liston has been in business for years under the Styles of Imagination umbrella. 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. 

Listen for our full discussion and make sure you subscribe to Super Tuesday Recap on iTunes/Google/Stitcher.

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.

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

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.
