MTR Network (tv & film)

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,

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. 

Listen to get our full recap/review. Make sure you subscribe to Super Tuesday Recap on iTunes/Stitcher/Google as well as our Youtube channel (MTRNetwork)

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.
