This week on Black Lightning the pacing is off as the show tries to set up storylines and move various pieces around the board. Khalil is struggling to please Tobias who is still mourning Syonide and carrying out his own nefarious plans. Anissa continues to play Robin Hood, now for a community hospital.

Lynn and Jennifer have the most dynamic storylines. Lynn is experimenting on the pod children and Agent Bill Duke has given her a new partner, Dr. Jace. This doctor specializes in neuropathy and ended up in jail because she illegally experimented on 11 people and they lost their feet. Oh, and one died. So Lynn is working with a mad scientist and her morals are starting to slip.

Jennifer starts sessions with her new therapist, Perenna (guest star Erika Alexander). Perenna has the power to create a reality where Jennifer can process her feelings. Though we only get two scenes of Jennifer's therapy, it's clear that her fear of her powers is also what's causing her powers to go haywire.

And finally, Master Lowry. I'm going to spend as much time as the show did talking about him. He showed up and told Jefferson to clean out his office. The end.

Listen to us discuss all of this and the science of feet falling off on the latest podcast.

What's better than one Black Canary? How about two? Even better, how about two Canaries versus one Longbow Hunter? Yeah Arrow season 7 is really going places we didn't think they would go. First off, this episode has no one in the Green Arrow suit all episode long. Not even flashbacks of Oliver in the suit. And you know what? It still worked. This season so far is really making us think about how things will turn out. Thanks to Legends of Tomorrow, we've seen part of the future before and how vigilantes are treated. Will all that come to be? Will Oliver lose an arm? Is William in the future the current person running around as Green Arrow? We don't know but they have our attention. And these Longbow Hunters aren't playing around.

Kriss is back with another episode of the Insanity Check to cover this week's dose of insanity in the world. This week he's joined by Rich from The UnCancelled Podcast. This week we try to bring a lighter tone to a really crazy week (and even crazier 2018). We're talking devil worshipping preteen wannabe murderers, scamming doctors and scientist creating a robot that gives blowjobs. Look...you've been warned.

Kriss & Phenom are back, this time to review the Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody. So, first off, it's better to look at this film as a Freddie Mercury & Queen appreciation film, and less of a biopic. This film kicked off it's production with all kinds of issues and controversies (What part of Mercury's life were they going to focus on, how much of it would be in there, who would play Freddie, etc). Then, Hollywood piece of shit and director of the film, Bryan Singer decided he was just going to stop showing up on set to make the movie. So Dexter Fletcher had to step in to finish the film. All that to say this film was a mess going through production and the end product is definitely a mess. Characters aren't fleshed out, the lip syncing for the hit songs is completely off and none of the characters outside of Freddie really matter (which is weird when this is also supposed to be a Queen film). 

It's not all bad though. Rami Malek puts on one hell of a performance as Freddie Mercury and  for that along the film is worth checking out. The film doesn't "straight-wash" Freddie but overall the film feels very, clean. It's better to consider this film a half-baked musical that does it's best to not offend any of the members of Queen or their families. That makes this a pretty bad biopic but doesn't remove the entertainment value for fans of Queen and Freddie Mercury.

Legends of Tomorrow is Back! The last show in the Arrowverse to return and of course it's the most fun. This episode even opens up with a meta discussion about their ratings and doing the "same thing as last year". Then they end up fighting a hippie-eating unicorn. How can you not love this show? Here are some of our favorite moments that we discuss during this review:

  • Sara and Ava are great together
  • Constantine fits perfectly into the show as the new "I work better alone/people close to me get hurt" character
  • Ray and Nate are Brony Bros? Of course they are
  • When Nora returns will she be evil?

Listen to the full review and let us know what you thought of the season premiere. What are you looking forward to the most this season?

The Death of Vibe shows us that Nora's stint in the 21st century is causing some larger ripples than we thought. Cicada not only is appearing earlier than he should but he isn't David Hersh. This is giving us the same feeling that season 5 of Arrow did when they kept teasing us Adrian Chase only for him to turn out to be someone totally different. We're really enjoying how they're pulling off this season so far with things like that. 

  • Ralph has been on fire this season. The way they're using him this season is great
  • Ralph and Caitlyn make a great team
  • Cicada is terrifying and is a real threat (Barry gonna have to learn to throw hands)
  • We got a new Wells (and he's another scammer...are all Wells scammers???)
  • Nora & Iris' icy relationship
  • Who sent Nora? Why did she finally reveal herself?

Also, we're on Jesse L Martin watch. Damn you Dpalm.

We are back again and Supergirl is still moving full speed ahead.  From Nia showing the world how to be a proper ally, to Agent Liberty moderating a straight out of Trumpland MAGA style rally, to Jensen broadcasting to the world he was about to take a heel turn, the show has found a way to balance threads of the same story into a seamless narrative.   We learn more about Mercy's connection to Lex, Nia's history and coming out to James, and J'onn investigating the disappearance of Fiona.  James is being a little too much like Van Jones for our liking, and the only drawback is Rhona Mitra doesn't know how to be anyone but Rhona Mitra.   They handled Kara's eternal optimism working against her and the very people she's trying to help masterfully, and the comedic moments in the midst of a heavy episode were well placed.

Black Lightning 2x02 -  The Book of Consequences: Chapter Two: Black Jesus Blues

Just a heads up, this episode was almost called "We Hate Anissa" because not only was the character on one this week but we're also consistently confounded as to how Anissa's character is being written. At this point, we need the writers to show not tell because everyone is telling me that Anissa is smart but no one has shown me any evidence to back up that hypothesis.

On this week's episode of Black Lightning, Jefferson and Anissa team up when one of the pod kids that Gambi scouted escapes and wreaks havoc with her power to cause windstorms. This reveals Anissa's hubris and obvious need for attention. Just like we said last week, Anissa is not in the superhero business because of altruism. Jefferson is also struggling with giving up his role as principal because they're handing over the reins to a white man. We've scoured the internet but there's no casting information about the incoming principal. All we know is that his name is Mike Lowry (no not that Mike Lowry) and next week's title is Master Lowry.

Jen and Lynn are dealing with their own issues. Khalil is coming around seeking forgiveness but Jen isn't with the shits. And Lynn is trying to balance her scientific curiosity with her compassion for the pod kids. We've got maybe 3 episodes before someone suggests using these kids powers "for good" i.e. making them government assassins.

Finally, Tobias is cleaning up loose ends which mainly involves killing everyone who's ever known him. What's his endgame? We discuss this, Jefferson's Lean On Me moment and more on the podcast.

It's nice to come into a weekly podcast with a topics list and a plan of attack. It's even nicer when the universe hands you Ohio State losing to Purdue and Chris Paul finally getting hit in the mouth on a Saturday night. We've got friend of the show (and Gators fan) Justin on this week to talk firings at USA Gymnastics, Aaron Rodgers being an ax murderer, NCAA basketball and the forthcoming Cocktail Party.

Arrow is back and picks up with the fallout from Oliver turning himself in at the end of last season. One thing that Arrow should be given credit for is the way they're taking chances. Oliver being in jail feels more real and consequential than when Barry was put in jail. We discuss:

  • Oliver being a changed man (although he can still kick people's asses)
  • Why you should never fight a naked man in the shower
  • Rene is still a snitch
  • Getting kicked in the chest will change your life
  • Who is the new vigilante? 
  • Oliver Queen...Fastest Man Alive

After surrendering to the police for being the Green Arrow, Oliver tries to survive in the prison while a new unknown vigilante emerges in the Star City.

Kriss is finally back with another episode of the Insanity Check to cover the last few week's of insanity in the world. This week he's joined by Justin from ThreeFifsPodcast. There's a lot to cover, from Kriss figuring out he doesn't actually like Comic Con, Winamp is coming back (cause along with social regression we need a digital one), Trump supporters have a tough time with dating and folks keep trying to fuck robots...which will fuck us all over in the long run.

Michael Meyers is back and so is Jamie Lee Curtis. David Gordon Green's Halloween film is a direct sequel to the original 1978 movie. And it does that film justice. And that's both good and bad. If you were hoping for some out of the box thinking and some smarter characters, you might be a little disappointed. But as a Halloween film, this film does exactly what you were expecting. It also includes one of the greatest black characters ever added to a horror film, Julian, played by Jibrail Nantambu. Despite our complaints, his character alone is enough to highly recommend seeing this film.

Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

What's better than Black Fatherhood Moments with Joe West? Black Grandfatherhood Moments with Joe West. Papa Joe doesn't play. So far this season, the show is really getting back to it's season one form and keeping that focus on family. Also we have to appreciate the show not stringing things along like they have in the past. Season 5 really seems to be taking us back to Season 1 in a slightly different way much like Arrow Season 5 did. 

Things that worked:

  • Papa Joe West is killing the Black Fatherhood moments
  • Season One Barry Allen Fail Reel
  • "Han Shot Second" - Sorry but Ralph is great on the show now. His 27 steps weren't even problematic.
  • Splitting the cast up and giving everyone something to do

What we're keeping our eye on:

  • Something is definitely going on with Iris in the future
  • Cicada has our attention
  • Why Nora is working out better than Wally did on the show.

In October 2000, Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley launched Ultimate Spider-Man and it quickly became the the ultimate success story for the ultimate line. Benis and Bagley held the record for the longest continual run on a Marvel comic series by two people. Having one creative team for so long allowed Ultimate Spider-Man to take chances and explore the world of a teenage Peter Parker in ways readers hadn’t experienced before. It takes seven issues to retell Peter’s origins, filling in details that were never explored. But not just that, the entire series rebuilds the legacy of Spider-Man from the ground up. And not just with Peter but the entire cast of villains and supporting characters. 
 
Ultimate Spider-Man is a complete rebooting of Spider-Man, not a retelling. Some elements stay the same (the core of the character) but others change. Those changes might seem drastic at times, but the longer you read the more you realize in ways they’re improvements.
 
Listen as Kriss & Dpalm discuss the first 10 volumes (Issues 1 - 59) of Ultimate Spider-Man.

We are back!

A new season of Supergirl, with yet another fresh premiere episode!  Kara isn't moping-she's saving the world since Superman is on Argo doing things.  We are introduced to Nia Nal, who is Kara 2.0 from season 1, a fact that is not lost on Kara.  J'onn is part of a alien support group navigating how to be alien in a world that isn't hospitable to them, and struggling to get that message across to Kara, who is an alien who looks like the all American girl and can't fathom the fact that an incident can be both a hate crime and part of a larger plot.  Alex is navigating her new role as director of the DEO, and Lena is trying to figure out how to help James navigate some looming legal issues.  We also see splinter Kara and what she's been up to all this time.

This show continues to cover real world issues with ease.  The allegory of being seen, and how being seen looks different depending on a number of factors, is so poignant given the current societal climate.

Black Lightning 2x01 - The Book of Consequences: Chapter One: Rise of the Green Light Babies

Black Lightning returns with a special guest filled premiere episode. As Jennifer struggles with her ever-growing powers, Jefferson and Lynn try to regain their positions in the aftermath of the attack on the school and the reveal of the ASA's child experimentation. Anissa, always the activist, wants to help the families of the "greenlight babies" who need legal representation to fight the police brutality and the government who wants to sweep their experiments under the rug.

On this week's podcast we discuss these long titles (look there are two colons, that's just grammatically incorrect), green light babies vs. crack babies, the guest appearances of venerable Black actors like Bill Duke and Robert Townsend, and Anissa continuing to be the most extra superhero to walk the streets of Freeland.

Every year, we’ve used the Vegas set Over/Unders for win totals to preview the upcoming NBA season. They’ve proven to be effective in getting quick previews of each team. Unfortunately, I’ve also lost the annual Over/Unders contest on my own show. Being a glutton for punishment, here we go: Over/Unders. Year three.

The sophomore season of Fox's The Gifted has started off strong. The show picks up 6 months after the end of last season and we quickly learn how things have changed for everyone involved. Jace Turner is no longer with Sentinel Services but he's still obsessed over the Mutant Underground. Lorna and Andy are with the Inner Circle while Marcos and Kate are desperately trying to find them. Reed's own mutant powers start to manifest and that's just the tip of the iceberg. There's so much going on and we're only 3 episodes into this season.

Kriss, Dpalm, Shanna and Jeff discuss the first three episodes and why this show is one of the best comic book shows on TV:

  • Time to let go of Jace...he's going full villain
  • Marcos drunk dials Lorna
  • Lorna's vision of the future is probably more like Inception but Lauren & Andy's might actually happen
  • Reeva is the new Head Mutant in Charge and she's not playing
  • Will Esme's time with the Mutant Underground infect the hive mind and make them all more sympathetic or will she break from them?
  • How the show subtly reminds us that Reed and Kate used to be ain't shit (and in some cases...still are)
  • Morlocks? They really gave us the Morlocks...amazing

For more check out this interview with Emma Dumont (Lorna) and Grace Byers (Reeva) from NYCC.

First Man is extremely boring. There's no other way to put it. It's like watching one of those movies IMAX museums put together that are like 2 hours of watching the Hubble Telescope. Yes the IMAX shot scenes look great but did the audience really need to be bored out of their minds for 2+ hours to get to that point. 

Phenom breaks down how many sleeps he got in while trying to sit through this movie.

Bad Times at the El Royale is what The Hateful Eight wanted to be without all of Tarantino's problematic issues. It has an ensemble cast that cover the entire spectrum and work extremely well together. You have Jon Hamm and Jeff Bridges being assholes and at their best. You have Cynthia Erivo putting in one hell of a performance both acting and singing wise. She's quietly the star of this movie. Dakota Johnson makes you forget she was in those terrible 50 Shades of Grey films. And finally, Chris Hemsworth is reunited with Drew Goddard who he worked with on one of his first films (Cabin in the Woods was released in 2012 but film back in 2009). 

Everything works for this film. The storytelling, the cast, the way it's shot...everything. This is a mystery/thriller done right and you won't want to miss it.

Listen as we break down why we loved this film so much.

We're Back! The Super Tuesday Recap Podcast is about to kick back into full swing again starting with the season premiere of The Flash season 5. Now we've had our issues with the last couple of seasons and even wrote about what we wanted to see from this season to get it back on track. But this first episode back really put us at ease. Doesn't mean that everything is fixed and we definitely have our things we'll be looking for. However, it's hard to find fault with this show when it puts out an episode like this that focuses on the most important thing in Flash lore: Family. 

What worked:

  • Getting back to basics and focusing on family
  • Giving Ralph something to do other than being an asshole
  • Grant Gustin and Candice Patton are great together
  • Handling Wally's departure
  • The new suit is in the ring
  • Tying back into season one with Crisis & Wells teaching Barry how to phase
  • All the Easter Eggs

What we have our eyes on:

  • Can the show maintain such a large cast without anyone getting short changed?
  • Time travel is always going to be part of The Flash. The question is: Will this be more like season 1 or season 3?

We also wonder what's going on with the promotion for Titans and who is the show supposed to be aiming for? And how good is The Gifted? Make sure you're subscribed to hear our review of the first 3 episodes of season 2 coming this weekend.

Season 5 Episode 1
Title:  Nora
Synopsis: After an unexpected guest from the future appears at their home, Barry and Iris must figure out how to get her back to the future without disrupting the timeline.

Season 11 started off with a new, wittier, and more inclusive tone!  Twelve remains my favorite Doctor, but Jodie Whittaker's first outing as our favorite Gallifreyan is making me a believer in her as a potential runner up to my favorite.  She portrays the Doctor with a combination of Capaldi's wit and Smith's wonder, leading me to believe that she is the 13th version of those characters.   This episode is told from the perspective of Ryan Sinclair, a 19 year old who we see trying to learn to ride a bike.  We are quickly introduced to the Doctor's future companions, Yasmin Khan and Graham, Ryan's step grandfather.  The premiere gets dark (the villain wears the molars of his victims as trophies-IN HIS FACE), and we meet and lose quickly Ryan's amazing grandmother Grace, who spends the episode showing why we should always believe in and trust Black women. However, her fate is the one trope-filled decision we cold have done without.   Join us as we chat up episode 1.  Future episodes will come in three episode batches at least once a month until we reach the Christmas episode.

Believe the hype. A Star is Born has no right to be as good as it is. Bradley Cooper upsets us at how talented he is. The accent he uses in this movie sounds like the voice that enslaved our ancestors and yet we were emotionally invested in his character. Lady Gaga is not only spectacular in her musical performance in this movie but her acting performance is also going to get her an Oscar Nomination (and maybe win). Cooper and Gaga also performed the music in this film live which only adds to the powerful scenes.

This movie is emotional, gripping and just flat out good.

We wrap up our discussion about the Robins with Tim Drake and Damian Wayne (with a slight detour to discuss Stephanie Brown). We've covered Tim, Stephanie before in their own Character Corners and touched on Damian's origin in Batman Part 3.  So in this episode we're going to do less of a complete deep dive and more of a conversation about each and where they are now. 

If Dick Grayson and Jason Todd are the “wayward sons”, then Tim and Damian are the sons raised right by Bruce. Obviously Tim is more closely like Dick. He’s the Robin that represents one of the key elements of Batman. Grayson is the acrobat, the clear heir, the one version of Bruce that had someone to catch him and guide him through his anger. Tim is the Detective. He had his own father and family and sees the entire chess board. If you think about it, Grayson and Drake represent elements of Batman without the baggage.

Jason Todd and Damian represent the anger and rage of Bruce Wayne. Jason is the rage and insecurities that Bruce has. Damian, is the Bruce that is constantly seeking the approval of his father. In a way Damian represents Jason Todd's story arc (post-crisis) more fleshed out. Damian is getting the full arc as Robin that Jason never got.

So sit back and get comfortable and listen as we go through the rest of the Robins. Share with your friends and leave us some feedback

It's that time again. The whole Super Tuesday Recap team is here (Kriss, Dpalm, Shanna & The Doctor) to preview the upcoming Fall line up of Super Tuesday Shows. Basically it's the entire Arrowverse plus The Gifted. We cover what worked for each show last season and what we're looking forward to this season.

  • Will we see any more of the Bat family (or even Batman himself) in the Arrowverse?
  • The Gifted is already back and they're already hitting it out the park
  • What does The Flash need to do to get back on top?
  • What was the biggest surprise about Black Lightning last season and what do we look forward to seeing this season?
  • The Doctor is really excited about Supergirl returning. How this show went from mediocre on CBS to great on CW
  • What Arrow needs to do to keep pace with the other shows
  • Legends of Tomorrow is the best show in the Arrowverse and everyone should be watching. Matt Ryan's Constantine fits in perfectly

Oh and we sprinkle in some Supernatural slander throughout the show.

Agents of Shield, Star Trek Discovery and Cloak & Dagger come back next year so we didn't include them in this preview but we're still reviewing them when they come back so make sure you subscribe so you don't miss an episode.

We're back discussing the UFC getting invested in the wrong things about their sport, the return (argue with yourself) of Tiger Woods, the creeping return of the NBA, questions about NFL players' leverage, and the good bad and ugly of college football. Oh yeah and Kriss is the guest. So you know.
