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.

This time it's not Dpalm's fault the world has gone to shit when he's on the Insanity Check. Kriss has been avoiding some of these topics for a while but since the Insanity Check is going on a two week break, we finally have to cover it. Semi-good news? Bill Cosby is going to jail for rape. It's still only 3 - 10 years (and he won't come close to even serving 3) but at last his rapist ass is in jail. And no, this isn't the case to use when talking about racial disparities in the criminal justice system. In lesser positive news, Brett Kavanaugh is going to be put on the Supreme Court. Hope is a lie and this FBI investigation is just a cover for Jeff Flake and other terrible republicans to have an excuse when they confirm him next week.

You already know what this is. If you were thinking that Malcolm D Lee's Girls Trip would maybe make Night School, that includes Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart, would be a good follow up...you'd be wrong. This film is a mess and easily forgettable. It is also without a complete story. There are so many characters in this film and most of them have no character development. Characters are just there with no dialogue and no real purpose. The film just has no idea what it wants to be.

Listen as Brandon and Ashley break down where this film went wrong.

A group of troublemakers are forced to attend night school in hope that they'll pass the GED exam to finish high school.

Kriss is joined by Joi to review, The Hate U Give which is based off of a young adult novel by the same name written by Angie Thomas. The film is directed by George Tillman Jr and stars Amandla Stenberg, Regina Hall and Russell Hornsby.

Now films based off of young adult novels don't have the best track record. Matter of fact, most are lazy and just downright awful. The Hate U Give isn't one of those films. It tackles some serious issues in the age of protests against police violence and Black Lives Matters and doesn't shy away from treating its target audiences as mature young adults. Add in an absolutely outstanding performance by Russell Hornsby and this is a film you're definitely going to want to check out.

Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what's right.

The Doctor and Shanna are joined by Moji from the TV Movie Mistress podcast to discuss Netflix Original Switched. This Japanese drama follows Ayumi and Zenko, two teen girls with drastically different lives who switch bodies. With the help of her friend Kaga, Ayumi tries to get her body back from Zenko who doesn't want to give up the popular girl's life or her boyfriend, Mizumoto. It's a twisted, teen drama that we think you'll enjoy.

Kriss and Dpalm are back with another Character Corner episode. This time its Part 1 of a two part series on the Robins. Weve covered most of the Robins already in previous episodes like Batman's Rogue Gallery, Tim Drake,  all the Batgirl episodes and our three part Batman series. But weve never really dug deep into each of the Robins and gone into their differences and how they tell the larger story of Batman.

We’re starting with Dick Grayson and Jason Todd not just because chronologically they were the first two robins but also because they represent the larger issues weve seen with Batman & DC Comics when they get translated to movies and TV. Everyone knows Dick Grayson is the first Robin but the reality is, by the time most of us were reading comics and aware of Batman, Grayson was far removed from being Robin. Same could be said for Jason Todd. Jason was first introduced in 1983 and was killed off in 1988. The first two Robins came and went before most people today were even 10. And thats where we see DC getting into trouble. The mantle of Robin is almost just as important and divisive as Batman. There isn't another sidekick character in which you have 4-5 drastically different character holding the title and all of them are just about important. Dick, Jason, Tim/Stephanie and Damien.

Were gonna go through each Robin and talk not just about some of their key issues but really dive into how theyre different from each other, and the role they play in Bruce/Batmans life. First up...the heir & the prodigal son: Richard & Jason.

Key Issues:

  • First Appearaances
    • Detective Comics #38 - First appearance of Dick Grayson/Robin
    • Tales of the Teen Titans #44 - First appearance of Dick Grayson as Nightwing
    • Batman #357 - First appearance of Jason Todd (Pre-Crisis)
    • Batman #366 - First appearance of Jason Todd as Robin (Pre-Crisis)
  • Early Years
  • Enter Jason Todd
    • Batman #408 - First appearance of Post-Crisis Jason Todd
    • Batman #410 - Post-Crisis Todd's first appearance as Robin
    • New Teen Titans vol 2 #20
    • Nightwing Year One
    • Batman #416 - Jason & Dick meet for the first time; Bruce admits to why he replaced Grayson
  • Death of Jason Todd
    • Batman #422
    • Batman #424 - Does Jason kill Garzonas or not?

A Simple Favor is yet another great movie featuring women from Director Paul Feig. Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively are great individually and amazing together. The film blends the comedy elements with the more serious thriller aspect extremely well without sacrificing the tone or being distracting. This is a film that will have you both laughing and paranoid about how well you actually know your "best friend".

Kriss and Phenom break down what makes this film work so well.

Shane Black's The Predator is a massive disappointment for the franchise. The film is all over the place and both adds too much and not enough at the same time. It's such a shame because what works particularly well for this film is the cast. The "Loonies" (Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, Thomas Jane, Alfie Aleen and Augusto Aguilera) work well together and would make for one hilarious Expendables/Bad Company movie. Sterling K Brown shines as a villain (almost too well).

But outside of that, the film tries so hard to not be a Predator film is frustrating. It's not until almost the end of the film when a Predator actually does what Predators do, hunt. And even then it's almost as if it's an afterthought. Oh and the use of Jacob Tremblay to portray an autistic child is downright offensive. 

Listen to Kriss and Phenom break down just how bad this film is.

Peppermint is what happens when someone sees the backlash that Bruce Willis' Death Wish remake got and says "Maybe if we just make the main character a white woman, it won't be so problematic." Thing is...it's still problematic. This film could have been different. Trailers for it suggest that Jennifer Garner's character will not just be going after the Latino gang members that killed her husband and daughter but the corrupt system of judges, cops and lawyers. But that's mostly a head fake. The majority of Riley North's rage and violence is aimed at Latino men who are made to look especially savage. It's problematic and also tiring to see the same concept over and over again in a Hollywood that claims to want to support diversity.

Listen as Kriss & Brandon break down why this movie is so bad.

We wrap up our creator spotlight on Jonathan Hickman with him destroying and rewriting the Marvel Universe(s). Hickman's Avengers run is so good because it ties in with his previous work with the Fantastic Four and S.H.I.E.L.D. perfect and really brings everything home. The way that New Avengers and Avengers seem to start off as different books but slowly reveal to be telling the same story is masterful.

If you want the full picture of what we discussed, make sure you listen to our episodes on Hickman's Fantastic Four and Secret Warriors/S.H.I.E.L.D. runs first.

We only touch on a bit of Secret Warriors since we’ve covered that before but we’ve never talked about S.H.I.E.L.D which has its foundations laid in Secret Warriors and explains several things from Hickman’s Fantastic Four run (Ever wanted to know how Nathan Richards got time travel abilities?).

The thing to understand about S.H.I.E.L.D is that it is super ambitious and leaves a lot on the table. This is a book that involves Leonardo Da Vinci and Sir Isaac Newton being members of The Brotherhood of the Shield, a Celestial driven mad when it reads the “Quiet Math” (the solution for everything), Howard Stark and Nathan Richards being members of the Brotherhood of the SHIELD and chasing down Nikola Tesla and many many other things. It’s crazy, it’s nuts and what’s really mind blowing is, the story might not be done yet. There are many questions left unanswered and we discuss how we are starting to see evidence that we might be getting answers soon.

Take a trip down this crazy road with us as we try to get all this information out of our heads.

After repeated requests in the mailbag, the podcast is graced by my much better half SPalm this week as we talk all the sports fro the past week. We even start with baseball again, but we head to the NBA, NFL and of course the most recent Ohio State scandals that seem to be focused more on the villains of the situation than the victims.

Kriss and Phenom tackle what went wrong with Fox's The Darkest Minds. The movie had potential. Yes, it's based off of a Young Adult Novel series but the entire story is basically jacked right from the pages of a X-Men comic. It could have finally given us the Fox X-Men movie we've deserved. Instead it was an uninspiring mess of a film. From changing Ruby from a dark skinned black girl to a light skinned black girl with mixed parents to just painful dialogue and nothing make sense. And that ending? Oh boy. 

Sit back as Kriss and Phenom rip this film apart with spoilers.

Imprisoned by an adult world that now fears everyone under 18, a group of teens form a resistance group to fight back and reclaim control of their future.

Phenom, Ashley and Kriss review The Spy Who Dumped Me. Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon play off of each other pretty well in this film. McKinnon is just downright funny and makes every movie better. Her scenes with Gillian Anderson are gold and worth the price of a movie ticket. 

Audrey and Morgan are best friends who unwittingly become entangled in an international conspiracy when one of the women discovers the boyfriend who dumped her was actually a spy.

Kriss, Phenom and Ashley review Disney's Christopher Robin. This film works pretty well considering it could have gone way too dark and depressing. It does a good job juggling a depressing theme and story with the fun characters of 100 Acre Wood so that it's still enjoyable for kids. 

A working-class family man, Christopher Robin, encounters his childhood friend Winnie-the-Pooh, who helps him to rediscover the joys of life.

Shanna, The Doctor and Parrish discuss Marvel's Cloak & Dagger episodes 1x06 - 1x09. 

Tandy forges a relationship with Mina Hess that brings up old hurt and new revelations about her father. Ty struggles to bring Connors to justice and redeem Billy's name. And O'Reilly is forced to choose what side of the law she's going to be on. Everything is leading up to the season finale and our heroes are stumbling back into bad habits before a (hopefully) triumphant ending.

Blindspotting continues a trend we've seen this year of relevant black films set in Oakland. This is a film you're going to need to see at least twice. There are things dropped at the beginning of the film that get tied back in at the end. Like Sorry to Bother You and Get Out, Blindspotting is going to lead to some good discussions and is a film everyone should see.

Phenom & Kriss discuss the movie as well as the Q&A Phenom sat in on after the film.

The dog days of summer should belong solely to Major League baseball, but between the commissioner picking a fight with a modern day Babe Ruth, that player's team shooting back at the commissioner's office, and a pitcher's racist tweets, there just isn't room for America's former pastime. Plus, NBA and NFL off-seasons have been full of needed hold outs and insane guaranteed money. And we finish talking about redemption; who gets it, who shouldn't, an a path towards earning some.

We tried y'all.  We really did.  The series final episodes had a lot of filler, some great character moments, and set up something promising-and then wimped out in the end.  We discuss why 12 Monkeys did not live up to the promise of the first season, and the problem with comaparing apples and avocados.  We also discuss the problem with current fandom, particularly individuals being upset that not everyone likes the same thing, and how liking something doesn't make it good.

The Equalizer 2 is a perfect example of how Antoine Fuqua is king of the "B Movie". This isn't a knock against him as there need to be more quality B movie action films. To me a B Movie is a film that is good enough to keep your attention for 1 or 2 viewings but you eventually forget about it. While you watch it, you enjoy it but soon after, you've forgotten it. That explains The Equalizer 2. It knows that audiences are just here to see Denzel kicking ass and that as long as they get that, they won't care about the weak main story or uninteresting side plots. 

I'll take more Equalizer 2 movies over things like The Commuter and ever other Liam Neeson film where he phones it in for 99.9% of the film.

We're continuing our Summer of Character Corner expansions with a new Character Corner/Comic Book Book Club hybrid. We're kicking off our discussion of Jonathan Hickman's Marvel run by discussing his wonderful Fantastic Four Run. Hickman fundamentally changed the Marvel Universe, starting in 2009 with Secret Warriors all the way through the 2015 Secret Wars. We'll be revisiting Secret Wars (And S.H.I.E.L.D.) next month and wrapping up with Avengers/New Avengers/Secret Wars. But we decided to start with Fantastic Four since the founding family of Marvel will be returning with their own solo book written by Dan Slott next month. Also, we've referenced this run a lot (From our Doctor Doom Part 3 to Black Panther to our Premium New Avengers/Secret Wars Comic Book Book Clubs) but we've never sat down and made it our focus. That changes now.

Kriss, Phenom and Shanna review Boots Riley's Sorry to Bother You. This film is getting great reviews and for good reason. There is so much commentary and little messages sprinkled throughout this film. From the obvious in your face messages of corporate greed and the lack of worker rights to the smaller visual nods and messages in the background. Sorry to Bother You packs in a lot unpack and you're going to want to see it multiple times to get it all in. The film progressively gets weirder and weirder all the way up to the end but it feels natural because recent real life events have shown us how easy the "new normal" can become.

We attempt to tackle some of the topics and themes we saw in this film but there's so much more. Run, do not walk to see this film.

Oh and Tessa Thompson is a Goddess and we will watch anything she's in.

In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a macabre universe. Directed by Boots Riley and starring stars Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Danny Glover, Steven Yeun and Armie Hammer

Phenom and Kriss are back to review the latest try hard movie from Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Skyscraper. Phenom (wrongly) blames Kriss for having to see and review this movie which is utterly stupid and ridiculous. The Rock has one leg in the film and plays a non-bad ass, bad ass. It's just another paint by number dumb action film starring The Rock that isn't looking to make money domestically but rather capitalize on his fame in China.

If you wanted to see this film you were already going to see it no matter what the reviews said. And if you thought the whole concept was dumb and not worth your time then...you were right.

Phenom and Kriss review the latest film to join the MCU ranks, Ant-Man and the Wasp. Evangeline Lilly finally gets to suit up as the Wasp and shows why she's a badass. The film is fun and has carved out a nice spot in the MCU as being a film perfect for families and young kids. While the after credit scenes (there are 2) do address where this film falls in with Infinity War, on its own, this film requires very little investment in the other films. 

As Scott Lang balances being both a Super Hero and a father, Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present an urgent new mission that finds the Ant-Man fighting alongside The Wasp to uncover secrets from their past.

Kriss, The Doctor, and Rod from The Black Guy Who Tips discuss season 1 of a show that was done criminally wrong by SyFy. The Doctor decided to rewatch the movie and tries (unsuccessfully) to make a case as to why the movie is not so bad in concert with the show. We also discuss the diversity of characters, including strong women characters, the complexity of the relationships, daddy issues, and why Dominion is the show that ruined Buffy's Giles for us. Take a listen and then watch the show if you haven't yet!

Kriss is joined by Tim (@Peoplescrtic) to review the latest Purge film, The First Purge. This film is a prequel that shows how the Purge came about. Full disclosure, we're huge fans of this series as it's a lot more than the trailers have made it out to be. The First Purge drops the act and comes right out and reveals what we've always known: The Purge was about the government manipulating citizens in order to wipe out poor black and brown people. With the last two movies The Purge franchise has turned into a black survival horror series and it's been great.

We break down this film and the entire series and why we love it so much.

Hiroja and The Doctor are back for the series finale of 12 Monkeys.  This season picks up where the last one left off with our team fighting for their survival as Olivia, revealing herself as the true witness, attempts to eliminate them completely.  Using the technology that apparently was available in the facility the entire time, they splinter a portion of the facility to a new location.  Originally they think they've only moved in space, but it turns out they've created a T.A.R.D.I.S. and have also gone back in time to the very beginning of season 1.

Yes, it's just as ridiculous as it sounds.  This show is leaning in to the whole idea of "to hell with our own rules and mythology, let's just throw something at the wall and see if it sticks."  The first six episodes as reviewed here have some great moments.  After all, Cassie's face when Jennifer tells her and Cole to do "butt stuff only" is priceless.   The opening sequence of the first episode is well done, and the actors are wonderful in their roles.  In a show though where they keep breaking the rules they've made in the same episode and where there is nothing but a loop of time, it starts to get long and drawn out for no reason.  We discuss here what worked for the first half of the last season, what didn't work, and where the show appears to be heading next.  We also rant a bit about why SyFy refuses to embrace their heritage and allow their SCIENCE FICTION SHOWS TO BE GREAT!

It's the end of June so it's time for another Mailbag episode. Kriss and Dpalm go through listener emails, hot topics and discuss their Pull-List for the month. This was a fun episode. We talk the changes at WB & DC and we have a real good conversation about what WB might need to do to turn their movies around (Hint: One-off movies isn't a bad idea), Brie Larson is a bad ass (That's My Captain Marvel) and Todd McFarlane is apparently desperate for Sony to distribute his Spawn movie. 

Note, this was recorded before the DC Universe announcement. While DC Universe does seem to be bringing some good things (Titans, Young Justice Outsiders, etc) and will have some comics...it still doesn't seem to be bringing a DC Unlimited feature unfortunately. You can look at the announcement here.

Phenom and Kriss review Uncle Drew, starring Kyrie Irving, Lil Rel Howery, Shaquille O'Neal, Tiffany Haddish and Nick Kroll. This film is based off the Uncle Drew character Kyrie played for the Pepsi Max commercials a few years back. So how was it? Well...your mileage may vary. There are a couple of moments early on in the film that will let you know if you're either in or you're out. Some of the story is just really bad and doesn't make sense, but the moments with Irving dealing with the other players are just like the commercials that got this movie green lit in the first place. 

Considering that most comedies that come out in a given year don't get good reviews, this film isn't that bad. It's certainly better than some of the other films we've seen this year.

Kriss and Dpalm are back with another...wait...is this a Character Corner or a  Comic Book Book Club? If you didn't know we're trying something new on the Character Corner podcast feed. We'll still be doing break downs of our favorite characters but in order to bring new content to the listeners, we're also going to be bringing some Comic Book Book Club episodes to the Character Corner. For this episode, we continue our dive into IDW's Transformers world with Chaos Theory, Last Stand of the Wreckers and Sins of the Wreckers.  

Now I know what you're thinking "Transformers? Really?" But these books are fantastic. Go listen to the IDW Primer also on the feed as well as when we discussed the first 22 issues of More Than Meets the Eye. Once you get over the initial hump of reading about giant robots you'll realize how human and real these books are. They deal with a lot of relevant topics in today's world:

Topics:

Chaos Theory:

  • Optimus Prime...sorry...Orion Pax is a bad ass
  • Optimus and Megatron were almost on the same sidea
  • Never Forget: This is all Whirl's fault

Last Stand of the Wreckers

  • A stark reminder that War isn't fun and has lasting affects
  • Here are the rules to be a Wrecker....as the Wreckers break every single one of them
  • Overlord is a sociopath
  • The reason why Fortress Maximus had PTSD over Overlord and Garrius-9
  • The Autobots had their fair share of war crimes
  • We're not saying Impactor was right but...we understand.

Sins of the Wreckers

  • Calling Prowl a "prick" is a bit of an understatement
  • Who Springer really is

If you sign up for premium you can hear us talk about the end of More Than Meets the Eye which also tie into these issues as well.

Sometimes one of the greatest days of your life can turn in an instant  and you end up playing basketball for the Phoenix Suns. Such is the story of Mikel Bridges and his almost storybook ending for the local boy made good. We've got the EIC of the entire network with us this week to unpack the legacy of Ronda Rousey, the reintroduction of Puma to the world of men's basketball, Jameis Winston's uncanny ability to always make the worst choices, and a surprising voice speaking out against youth football.

They stuck the landing!  We got amazing Black Fatherhood, a satisfying conclusion to the Mon-El/Kara romance, a happy ending for Ruby and Sam, the departure of Winn, and a completely changed landscape in the Supergirl Universe.  And they have seeded Red Daughter of Krypton for season 4!  

We encourage everyone starting this show to go ahead and watch season 1.  Although it's a struggle, we think it's important to see how the show has grown better with each season.

I don't mean to worry anyone, but it is my sworn duty to inform you all that Kevin Durant is in serious jeopardy of being soetnign of a sucker. No, no not for that thing that was just good business. His latest brusher with suckerhood has come with a GM popping off at the mouth, but when you've got Rich Fann from PWTorch on you can cover this, LeBron's place in history, Kawahi's place post-Spurs, Baseball trying to put horses back in barns, the place of the NFL holdout in 2018, and of course, Pro Wrestling.

It's been 14 years since the first Incredibles film. Has it been worth the wait? Absolutely.

Kriss, Phenom and Ashley discuss what works for this film and what might be at the bottom of the handful of negative reviews (Hint: It's cause the film centers women). This is a great film, continuing Pixar's tradition of having enough here for both adults and kids. Truth be told, there might be more here for adults than the kids.

Oh and the short film that airs before is designed specifically to punch you in the guts and give you all the feels.

Luke Cage Season 2 is bigger, more emotionally dark and better than Season 1. Season 2 really feels like it takes all the issues with the first season and addresses them to make this more of a black family crime drama than super hero show. And that's a good thing.

A lot of things work for this season:

  • A villain that challenges Luke both physically and mentally
  • The Family First theme of the season
  • Alfre Woodard's transformation with Mariah
  • The comic book teamups (Daughters of the Dragon, Powerman and Iron Fist)
  • The way the music is integrated into season and is important to understanding the themes and scenes
  • Not making Luke the central piece but leaving his character in a really interesting place
  • and more

Check out Kriss' video review as well as the audio review with Kriss & Phenom. We'll be back later with more in depth discussions of this season after it drops on the 22nd of June.

THEY KILLED DEMOS!  YOU BASTARDS!

The Doctor is furious that they killed one of our two favorite agents.  It's a great and action packed episode but did they have to kill our boy?  We watch as Papa J'onzz transfers his life experiences to J'onn in preparation for his passing, Alura arrives on Earth, and that dummy Coleville helps the Dark Priestesses resurrect Reign.  The finale promises to be heartbreaking.  Killing a major side character hit hard, and we get a feeling not everyone is going to make it out of the finale alive.  The only drawback-this was a great opportunity to give Reign a truly iconic look in her rebirth.  They didn't take it, but it definitely doesn't take away from the story.

What happens when the crazy white girl and the altar boy meet? Sparks ignite ... literally. Shanna, The Doctor and Parrish discuss the two-hour premiere of Marvel's Cloak & Dagger as well as everything from police brutality, The Talk and how this version of Ty and Tandy differs from their comic counterparts.

We can't wait to see what happens on this season of Cloak & Dagger and if these heroes will go from damaged teens to whole and healthy crime-fighters.

In another spectacular episode, we get the gun episode Arrow wish it would have done, J'onn preparing to say goodbye to his father, and the Dark Priestesses and their crew gaslighting Kara on her new home world.  We discuss the need for killing that is sometimes necessary, Mon El coming clean about his reason for staying, and guess at potential season deaths.  Lena is always prepared, and we wonder if that is going to be our lead in to season 4 because she could become the Big Bad, but, let's be honest, is she really wrong?

Kriss and Phenom review Hotel Artemis. If you go in expecting John Wick and to make that comparison, you're going to leave disappointed. There's been a lot of comparisons to John Wick because of the concept of criminals paying for membership to gain access to the Artemis which is a medical facility for bad guys. While there does seem to be some overlap in the idea of The Continental in John Wick and the Artemis, the comparisons between the films stops there. John Wick is clearly an action film while Hotel Artemis is less about action and more about the interactions of the characters. All the actors in this film play well off of each other and that offers for some really funny moments. Dave Bautista continues to be a stand out in every role he plays. Sofia Boutella is finally given a role where she can show how much of a badass she can be. 

We also take a short detour in this review to talk about the upcoming movies for Dwayne Johnson (spoiler alert: they all sound terrible). How the hell are they making a San Andreas 2?

Kriss and Phenom review Ocean's 8, a spin-off film in the Ocean's 11/12/13 franchise. Sandra Bullock plays Debbie Ocean, Danny Ocean's sister, who is fresh out of jail with a scheme to pull off a huge heist. Debbie, along with her best friend Lou (Cate Blanchett) put together a team of ladies to help pull of the job at the Met Gala.

This film manages to pull of the same feel of Ocean's Eleven with the multi-layered heist, ulterior motives and inevitable road blocks, while still having it's own distinct feel and vibe. The film pays homage while not burdening the characters with "filling the shoes of men". It's a fun film that's going to leave audiences wanting more films.

In 2005, the Transformers comic license had found it's way to IDW Publishing and back into the hands of beloved Transformers scribe Simon Furman. Only, things didn't necessarily go according to plan in those initial issues as the man behind the keyboard spun a tale largely absent the well worn trappings of the franchise. To say the fan base was uneasy is to put it mildly so fresh off of the collapse of Dreamwave Productions.

Thirteen years, more issues than any other Transformers universe, and the longest running singular continuity across the Transformers landscape later, and it's all coming to a close with the arrival of Unicron. Originally made famous by film legend Orson Welles in the 1986 animated movie,  this planet eating threat will put a bow on the most critically successful era of Transformers ever.

To recap how we got here, we're joined by one of the hosts of the TransMissions Podcast, Charles Shelton and chart the entire IDW Transformers timeline from Infiltration to Unicron. We talk about how IDW has been forever transformed by the property, our predictions for how this is all going to unfold, and ask what's next for the nearly 35 year old franchise.

In two powerful episodes that keep up the fantastic pacing this season, we have a well handled Black Lives Matter episode when James is revealed to be Guardian to the cult headed by guest star Chad Lowe.  We got some delicious shade from Lena towards Supergirl, who was acting in typical 53% fashion expecting folks to forgive and forget on her terms.  We also got an episode that reveals not only is Kara's mom still alive, many other Kryptonians including the Dark Kryptonian that was guiding Reign is on Argo City, an experimental enclave designed by Kara's father as a last ditch attempt to save some of this planet.    The planet contains an element that they believe can rewrite Sam's DNA so that Reign is completely obliterated, but her people have become isolationists and want no part of Earth's issues.  The show just continues to get better and better and it's exciting to see what the end of the season will bring.

We have the Eastern and Western Conference Finals for the NBA currently trying to keep yet another Warriors vs Cavs Finals matchup happening, the Washington Capitals make it to the Stanley Cup Finals and yet, we have to put the focus of this show on Roger Goodell and the NFL's attempt to silent black NFL players. The new NFL "anthem" policy is a ridiculous. Less than 10 players were kneeling and the NFL decides it not only wants to shoot themselves in the face but also bend a knee to Donald Trump. And if that wasn't enough, they made the announcement on the same day that the Sterling Brown arrest video was made public.

What a joke.

It's no shock that this season of The Flash has been a bit of a disappointment and the finale was never going to change that. The main story in this episode leaves a lot to be desired but there was some good things. This entire season has done a good job of developing characters and setting them up for season 5. It's been clunky but still the development is there. It also seems like they've been doing a lot of setting up for Season 5 (From Dawn...I mean "Nora" to the mysterious writing Barry/Nora/Wells have all done). While it might not have saved this season, it's possible that Season 5 will be 100% on the right track because of this kind of setup. Also, we have to admit, this season with all of it's problems is still way better than last.

The end of season 5 is here for Agents of Shield and it doesn't go the way we thought it would but it was still great. What makes Agents of Shield so good is the way they always punch us in the gut. The inter-team relationships and conflicts always pay off. And that's on top of the super hero fight we get between Daisy and Graviton.

While the show is coming back for Season 6, this season ends in a way that could have been a series finale. Coulson and May end up on a beach in Tahiti waiting out Coulson's last days while the rest of the team goes to find the Fitz that's sitting in stasis in space (Always keep a spare Fitz). This is just such a great show

How is it that Oliver does all the hard work but you still need to put him in jail? We're hoping this is a larger plot for the next season to get Oliver to root out corruption elsewhere. But overall, we enjoyed this finale. We got a good send off for Paul Blackthorne and Diaz is still around so we should get more of Kirk Acevedo in Season 7.

This show just won't stop being good-and we will not complain about that fact.  This week we get the DEO making a series of unfortunately stupid decisions leading to an epic two part dragging from Lena about Supergirl and her shortcomings, Alex being stupid and failing to be honest with Ruby, which leads to Ruby getting herself square in Reign's sights, Mon El deciding to stay not only to help his ex triumph but to figure out his feelings, and Carl Lumbly giving an excellent performance as we watch J'onzz's father slip further away.  The elevator scene was worth the price of admission as Lena tells Kara and the audience everything that is wrong with Supergirl-shortcomings we here on this podcast have been pointing out for 3 years by the way.  Lena is the hero we need but not the one we deserve.

With Deadpool 2 hitting theaters this weekend we've finally recorded our Character Corner episode on Nathaniel Christopher Charles Summers, aka, Cable. Now first off, we've touched on a lot of the early years with Nathan/Cable already in some previous Character Corners. We cover Nathan's birth and being sent to the future in the Cyclops & Alex episode as well as him being genetically created specifically to be a weapon against Apocalypse in our Apocalypse & Mister Sinister episode. And if you want more on Deadpool and Cable's relationship, we covered that all the way back in our Deadpool Character Corner.

Now Cable wasn't originally created to be the grown up, future Nathan Summers. Originally Louise Simonson and Rob Liefeld created him to just be a military leader who was the complete opposite of Professor X and would lead the young New Mutants. Things changed rather quickly as the character became more popular and soon it was revealed he was not only Nathan Summers but his clone was Stryfe who founded the Mutant Liberation Front. It only gets stranger and weirder from here and we cover it all. From his half sister from an alternate timeline (Rachel Summers/Grey) to Cable going becoming the protector and father of Hope Summers. There's a lot going on, it can be convoluted but it's all connected. We try to make sense of it all.

We've reached the penultimate episode of The Flash and we have to say, we enjoyed it pretty much. The episode opens up pretty strong with Devoe taking over an ARGUS facility using all of his powers and it was a pretty good sequence. While this season has been all over the place, they've at least established Devoe as real threat and his arc has at least been consistent enough that we care (unlike what's happened with Diaz on Arrow). 

We also love that Cisco finally calls out Barry on his self loathing and inability to accept help. Barry's had to go through this with everyone else on the team and so hopefully this will be the last of it. And Cisco was absolutely right to call Barry out.

Overall this was a good episode. We could nitpick but this show needed more episodes like this one this season and it wouldn't have felt like such a drag.

Kriss & Jax review Solo: A Star Wars Story. For all the worry and talk about this film, it's so much better than anyone could imagine. The cast works extremely well together. Most people are coming for Donald Glover’s Lando, but they’ll stay for everyone else. Contrary to the rumors, Alden Ehrenreich nails a young, cocky, arrogant and ideological Han Solo. This film basically gives us a Han who hasn’t become completely jaded but also shows us that no matter how much of an outlaw he tries to pretend to be, he’s still a good guy underneath it all.

Woody Harrelson continues to be underrated and Emilia Clarke and Paul Bettany pull in great performances as well. But the real standout is Phoebe Waller-Bridge voicing the radical droid, L3-37.  If audiences thought K-2SO was a scene stealer in Rogue One, wait until they see L3. Without looking at the screen it would be easy to confuse her dialogue for that of a normal human. It’s that good.

What Solo brings to the table is something that a lot of fans might not have expected: Possibilities for other stories. This is a film that has no mention of Jedi or Sith and barely has the Empire in it. Solo shows that the Star Wars universe, even in prequel form, is pretty vast with a lot of stories to tell. Also, it’s very clear that things that happened in the Clone Wars animated series, Star Wars Rebels animated series and the new line of Marvel comic books, are all part of the same canon that the movies are using. There’s a special surprise in this film that is tied to something that happens in Clone Wars (the animated cartoon). It’s clear that Disney is building something special here.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is going to surprise a lot of people. It’s fun, expands the Star Wars lore and at the same time, feels like Star Wars. You’re not going to want to miss this one.

During an adventure into a dark criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his future copilot Chewbacca and encounters Lando Calrissian years before joining the Rebellion.

Deadpool 2 suffers from what a lot of sequels do when it comes to it's story being a bit of a mess. But Ryan Reynold's is great as the Merc with a Mouth, the comedy hits and the action is great. Throw in Deadpool once again being the only Fox super hero movie that gets what the X-Men are supposed to be and this is a film fans will definitely enjoy. Kriss and Phenom break down what didn't work and worked for this sequel. 

Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy of supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling mutant, Cable.

If you would have told us halfway through season 1 of Supergirl that it would grow to be the second best show in the CW Superhero Universe behind Legends of Tomorrow, with Legends being the best, we would have called you bold face liars.  Yet here we are!  This week we see the World Killers start their plan to destroy the world, the fallout of Lena's secret, Mon El being a trash ass husband, Lena calling Kara out on her hypocrisy, and James making a choice.  The reveal that Lena can create Kryptonite is going to really cause a conflict...the question is will James keep the secret?

 

Also, can we talk about all these cancellations?  Thanos' finger snap has had effects beyond the MCU!

When Agents of Shield Season 5 showed us a cracked earth in episode 1, we immediately wondered how it would tie in Infinity War. We never thought it would tie-in with the events of Infinity War happening right along side the last 3 episodes of the season. This show is amazing. We think we know how this season ends and while we don't know if it's coming back for Season 6, we're rooting for it.

Daisy's future as the destroyer of worlds could take a critical change.

Structurally, this is a good episode. The stakes were high and the action was good. But we can't help but wonder why all the sudden ARGUS's hands are tied because of red tape and how the Quadrant became so weak compared to Diaz. Also, while we appreciate Oliver's growth, it's getting a bit annoying that the problems with Diaz were literally caused by everyone else. 

Also, if you haven't read the Green Arrow Rebirth arc, you really should.

Diaz targets Team Arrow and their loved ones. Oliver struggles with Felicity putting herself in danger when she gets the chance to stop Diaz for good.

Brandon, Ashley and Kriss review Breaking In, starring Gabrielle Union and directed by James McTeigue. The film just isn't very good. First sign should have been that writer Ryan Engle has written such AMAZING films as Non-Stop, The Commuter and Rampage. In a post Black Panther world, half-assed low budget attempts to capitalize off of "diversity" by just throwing in a black woman aren't going to cut it. Everyone deserves better.

Kriss, Phenom and Ashley review the latest from Melissa McCarthy, Life of they Party. The movie comes off as if McCarthy and Ben Falcone have never been to a college campus. Add on top of that dead end characters that start arcs that don't get finished and just a bunch of logistics that don't make sense (Why is a late 40 to mid-50's former house wife moving into the dorms for 1 class?). McCarthy has done a lot better work and this film just feels lazy and extremely bad.

Kriss and Dpalm are irrationally excited about the upcoming Flash War in the Flash comic. The Flash #46 came out today and oh boy...we're ready. Now is the perfect time to catch up on our Wally West Character Corner.

Oh yeah...and then there's episode 21 of The Flash. Not a bad episode. Katee Sackhoff is over-the-top as Amunet but we love it. We definitely wouldn't mind seeing her start the Rogues next season. Also, can we get a little more consistency with Iris and her writing? Does she have a Blog? Is it that Popular? Does she only post like once a month? Come on folks, this is easy to fix. But overall we did like this episode (minus the Council of Harrisons and lack of DeVoe). Can this show land the final two episodes? We hope so.

You'd think after Universal FanCon spectacularly crashed and burned, co-founders Robert Butler and Jamie Broadnax would keep a low profile and not say anything. Particularly since every time they speak on the issue, they make it worse. You'd probably think that because you have the intelligence to know that the more you speak the more you make yourself look bad. You probably also have an ounce of shame that's apparently completely absent from anyone involved with ScamCon. Late Monday afternoon, Vulture posted this piece The Story Behind FanCon's Controversial Collapse and it makes everyone involved look even worse. 

First there's Butler inexplicably blaming a "lack of support" from the blerd community as the cause of the collapse and not the fact that he used 80% of the Kickstarter funds as a deposit for the Baltimore Convention Center. Then there's Jamie claiming she's the one who informed the hotels that they couldn't pay their $70,000 bill even though she previously claimed she had no idea how or why the hotels canceled reservations. It quickly becomes clear that Universal FanCon was all about rubbing elbows with celebrities and not building and serving the community.

Listen as Kriss and Phenom break down the audacity of the claims in the article.
