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.

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.

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.
