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.

Next show we're talking Cassandra Cain, Helena Bertinelli and Kate Kane

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.
