This week Shanna and The Doctor are catching up on two new episodes of Supergirl "Hope for Tomorrow" and "Nightmare in National City".  In "Hope for Tomorrow" Nyxly is still trying to find the totems and realizes that trying to inspire hope is for the birds (ed. note: #relatable) so she'll just let Kara get the totem and force her to hand it over. Nyxly uses the only leverage she can think of, kidnapping William who is the official scribe of the Super Friends. After trying (and failing) a bunch of times, Supergirl and the rest of the team manage to avert a potential nuclear war which gives the world a glimmer of hope and allows them to acquire the Hope totem. Supergirl decides to destroy the totem so Nyxly can never assemble the All-Stone but Nxyly receives an anonymous gift that may turn the tide back in her favor.  This takes us right into "Nightmare in National City". Nia has been searching for the Dream totem and she finds out that her sister Maeve took all of their mom's research books and ran away after their father found out that Maeve told Nia she's not a real woman. Nia has to work with her sister who is a wealth of information even if she is a b*tch. Meanwhile, Nyxly is working with a new mech suit courtesy of Lex Luthor, and when she manages to grab the Dream totem by the skin of her teeth, Lex uses it to reappear. Oh Nyxly, if you thought your father was a problem, you have no idea.  We talk totems, Alex's new role as an adoptive mom, and Kara's burnout all on this week's podcast.    Like what you hear?

So...apparently we're doing robots this season of Legends of Tomorrow. Maybe. Possibly. Who knows? Honestly, it doesn't even matter. This show has a winning overall format and it's sticking to it. As silly as everything is, this show knows when to throw in the serious as well as the social commentary. They don't play around or sit on the fence about J Edgar Hoover and clearly state that he was a terrible man. They even go as far as giving us a rich vs working class debate right in the middle of that episode. This is what makes Legends of Tomorrow not only good but consistently good. They lean on their cast, split them up and dive right in. And they know when to make you care. Not a Spooner and Astra fan? Too bad because you're going to have to be.  Next episode will be the 100th episode and we know they're going to have something special for us. Can't wait.  Kriss and Dpalm record the Mailbag at the end of every month. If you want to send in your own questions and thoughts, email us: Mailbag@MTRNetwork.Net   Like what you hear?

We're back with a new season oof Legends of Tomorrow. If it feels like season 6 just ended, it's because it literally ended last month. And the show picks up like we never left. The Legends are stuck in the 1920's with no Waverider or Time Bureau technology. So what do the Legends do? First they start pretending like they're part of the circus to explain the alien invasion. Then they set off on a crime spree as bank robbers on their way to New York to try to find a professor that could help them with time travel. Oh and they accidentally kill J Edgar Hoover on the way. This season is off to the typical Legends start.  Also what makes this show work is how they're able to integrate new characters and keep everything fresh. Sara is the last of the original Legends but the crew still feels like the Legends, even with the new members. Everyone has a role to fill and play and it all works so well.

This week on Supergirl, Nyxly is after the totem of humanity and this gauntlet is like no other because while the totem draws the humanity out of the humans around Nyxly, it also channels all that humanity into her. Losing their humanity turns National City into a city full of Karens and Chads with everyone displaying their absolute worst selves. Even the dream couple that Kelly places one of her foster kids with turns out to be the worst when they're caught by an angry mob. And even though Nxyly has some moments of empathy in this episode, ultimately, she doesn't seem to be fully internalizing the lessons she's learning from her totem trials and it seems like that's going to be the key to truly defeating her brother and father.  Lena, on the other hand, is learning a lot about herself as she tries to master the magic she's inherited from her mother. It's a struggle for her because magic relies on intuition and feeling rather than facts and figures but with William's help, she's able to see past her frustration.  William, you ask? He's finally embedded with the Super Friends and he's granted exclusive access to their headquarters and behind the scenes of their missions. Initially, Kara and the others want to keep certain details of their missions under wraps but they realize that telling the public what's happening will garner more trust than holding back. Andrea (who has low-key become a J. Jonah Jameson-level villain) is still pushing for more. If she keeps going, she's going to end up causing serious damage in her pursuit to sell newspapers.  We talk about all this and more below. And let us know your predictions for the end of Supergirl because we're looking for some good theories about how this wraps up.    Like what you hear?

This week, we begin the search for the totems, and the first one up is the totem of courage. When Kara and Nxyly get to the totem at the same time, they end up breaking it in half and the only way to possess the full totem is to face their fears. Surprisingly, Nxyly manages to complete the gauntlet before Kara when she has the courage to be vulnerable. Seeing her father and brother in the gauntlet is only making us more excited for when she faces them for real.  We talk the gauntlet, Lena's newfound magic, and the aftermath of last week's episode.

We absolutely loved this week's episode of Supergirl but ... y'all gone get these jokes. Co-written by our own Kelly Olsen (Azie Tesfai), "Blind Spots" is Supergirl's "racial reckoning" episode focused on Kelly's fight to be seen and heard by her teammates whose focus is on giant cats and fifth dimension sized problems that create blindspots (MESSAGE!) to the very real problems that Kelly and Orlando and the other residents of the Ormfield are dealing with.  When Kelly finally breaks down and calls her brother to vent, he sends in Diggle (another Arrowverse cameo from David Ramsey, who also directed this week's episode.) as back up and Kelly and Dig bond about how their everyday problems can be overlooked by their teammates when imps and aliens are around. Although the episode is well done and manages to ride a fine line between superheroing and realism, it does tip over into preachy and prescriptive especially when Kelly talks to her white friends and it feels like she's reading straight out of White Fragility (which also gets a cameo in the show alongside Ta-Nehisi Coates' Between the World and Me).  Overall, this episode does a great job of discussing race directly without the metaphors around Kara's alienness and it's a great reminder that just because you experience some oppression, it doesn't mean you understand all oppression. I do think if Supergirl wants us to buy Kelly Olsen as a superhero in the suit, they need to stop making her an even better superhero outside of one. Listen to us discuss all of this and way more on this week's podcast.    Like what you hear?

We asked and Supergirl immediately answered. On this week's episode "Mxy in the Middle" we check back in with Lena and the search for her mother's origins. Lena travels to Newfoundland, Canada (which is actually home to a large Irish immigrant enclave) and finds that her mom wasn't the sweet, innocent she'd come to think she was but Lena's mother also isn't the bitch the townspeople think she was. Instead, she was a witch. That's right. Lena Luthor is the daughter of a witch and it looks like Lena may have a touch of magic inside her as well. And that's going to be helpful because with Nxyly powered up and Mr. Mxyzptlk back in town, it's going to take magic to fight magic. Because she doesn't know about Nia's part in freeing Nxyly from the dream realm, Kara is blaming herself for the havoc Nxyly is bringing to National City. And while the Super Friends do everything they can to protect Mr. Mxyzptlk without sending Nxyly back to the Phantom Zone, in the end, Mr. Mxyzptlk sacrifices himself to atone for his role in Nyxly's banishment. We'll see how the rest of the season plays out but we're hoping that Nyxly can switch sides and gain the support of the Super Friends to take down her father and brother who seem like the real bad guys here.    Like what you hear?

This week, Nia's opened a can of worms, and luckily, her mom lets her know it's not okay. After Nyxly (obviously) screws her over, Nia is reunited with her mom and finally faces the person who's been holding her back ... herself. Back in National City, Kara and the Super Friends are fighting gentrification. Even though he's out of jail, Orlando can't get Joey out of the group home until he has a steady job and housing, and his housing prospects are tanked after a tech company moves into a project that used to be designated for low-income housing. Kara is determined to use Supergirl's social media cachet to fight this city council but she makes a new enemy in Councilwoman Rankin (Kari Matchett) who was stewarding the project. While Supergirl has always walked a fine line between real-life politics and superhero tropes, this season some of the character development feels rehashed. Also ... Where. Is. Lena? Nia's story with her mother would have so much more impact opposite Lena's search for her birth mother but Katie McGrath seems to be missing in action.

Season 6 of Legends of Tomorrow was great. Particularly the final run of episodes. Its weird to say this about an episode where Mick becomes the father of alien-human squid babies, a giant alien mushroom protecting the earth from alien invasion, John dying and becoming a mushroom (and more ridiculousness) but this was probably the least ridiculous Legends finale we've seen. Part of that is because this season did a really good job of tying all the themes together. Especially with Spooner. She was a bit annoying for most of the season but the show did a great job pairing her with Astra the last few episodes really worked. Also the reveal about her origin and mother also worked well.  This was also the best send off for two Legends. First, it was nice to see Mick settle down and complete his arc. The moment with him and Sara sharing a beer and reflecting on their time was a good reminder of how far they've come. Then there was John. Still the bastard he's always been. It also leaves the door open for him to return. Or even better, for him to end up in a live action movie. There really is no need to find another John Constantine. Overall we really loved this season and look forward to the new season starting next month. Kriss and Dpalm record the Mailbag at the end of every month.

We're back for another Supergirl review! This week, The Doctor and Shanna talk about Kelly Olsen's attempt to offer wrap-around services for the Super Friends.

While Kara is interested in pursuing the story, Andrea is still pressuring her and William to write TMZ style puff pieces on Supergirl and her crew. This episode actually touches on some great issues (prison corruption, child abuse, and journalistic integrity) which more than makes up for some truly ridiculous decisions that Nia makes in her attempts to reunite with her mom.

Kara is back in National City (or is she? The jury is still out on that) and she's returned from the Phantom Zone with her father, Zor-El. After years in the Phantom Zone and still riddled with guilt over the death of his home planet, Papa El is determined to make sure that Earth's climate crisis is averted. This is one of those times where even Supergirl's ever-present optimism falls short. Everyone kind of agrees that the climate crisis is a big deal and may require a different skill set than the Super Friends have to offer. But Papa El is insistent that Earth does not follow the path of Krypton so it's the Super Friends vs. Climate Change this week.  Kara is also struggling with her return to her life as a mild-mannered reporter because she's been assigned to look into the Phantom attacks (which were a byproduct of the team trying to rescue her) and she's dealing with PPSD, Post-Phanthom Stress Disorder. It's always great to see shows tackling the trauma of superheroing and Kara has been through a lot recently. Even a "love conquers all" hero like Supergirl has their breaking point. Listen to more as we talk about trauma, family issues, and the fineness of Papa El on this week's review Supergirl.    Like what you hear?

Legends has been on a roll with these last few episodes. This show has always done a great job of juggling the ridiculous with the serious and giving us great character development and this episode highlights that. Everyone (the audience and the Legends) know that Bishop can't be trusted yet the show does a great job bringing that into doubt. First with him really getting to Ava and second after he saves Mick. And while we still don't know his new end goal, we see this whole episode was just so he could get a comm device and tempt Constantine.  Also, as we've been saying, the Constantine addiction arc has been really good. They really do a great job of showing the toll addiction takes on a person. It helps that this feels like a natural conclusion for the Constantine arc we've seen develop since the NBC show. We look forward to how they will wrap all of this up. We're going to to combine the review for the next two episodes so we'll be back to wrap up this season in 2 weeks.

One thing you have to admire the Arrowverse shows for is how they give opportunities for their actors to get behind the camera and direct some episodes. And even better, those episodes are usually pretty good. The Final Frame is Jes Macallan's (Ava) first shot as a director and it's pretty well done. This is the first Legends episode back after a big break and the show picks up where it left off and gets us right back on board. Constantine's magic addiction is clearly going to be a big problem and unlike other addiction storylines in the Arrowverse, this one feels natural because it fits right in with the character we've seen. Also needs to be said that Nate is being written extremely well this season and we like seeing the maturity from him in his relationships. And we think the formula for not making Spooner terrible is to pair her up with someone else who is being just as stubborn and boneheaded as she is. First with Astra and this time with Mick. That's the winning formula they should stick with. Kriss and Dpalm record the Mailbag at the end of every month.

This season of The Flash had to overcome a lot. The last season ended early due to Covid and that meant losing 3-4 episodes of this season to wrap that up. Then there was the fact that they shot this season in the middle of a pandemic which brings a ton of new set of restrictions and problems to overcome. We say all that to say that while this season definitely had it's issues, considering everything it had to overcome, they did a pretty good job of wrapping everything up. The end of the season really slimmed down to focus on the most important things (seems like some of the Forces just weren't that important). We also get the return of Jay (John Wesley Shipp is really a great Jay Garrick) and some really great moments with Bart & Nora. And of course we get the return of Thawne.

Overall this season of the Flash has had its ups and downs. But it's important to remember that this was also a shortened season affected by Covid. That said, this episode before the 2-part finale does a lot but that's not necessarily bad. We didn't like what they did with Ultraviolet this episode. Felt like they fridged her right after an episode where they saved her. We're hoping this isn't the case. But outside of that, everything else worked really well. It was nice seeing Diggle and the continued drive towards him being a Green Lantern. We hear them saying its not happening but then we see this episode and well...it better being happening. We also see them trying to tie everything back to the forces with Deon showing up. It was feeling a bit awkward not seeing Iris the last two episodes but they cleaned it up a bit with the reveal this episode. There's just A LOT going on in this episode and while most of it is good...its still a lot. Part of that again feels like an aftereffect of Covid shootings, schedules and having to wrap up the last season at the beginning of this season. We definitely have a feeling that Thawne is behind Godspeed which would be fitting.  August Heart definitely has a "The Return of Barry Allen" feel to to him but we'll see. Also we finally get the kids showing up, XS and Bart. And the suit looks better in motion than it did in the screenshots. So bravo.  We're going to cover the two part finale on episode so we'll be back in two weeks to wrap up season 7 of the Flash. Kriss and Dpalm record the Mailbag at the end of every month.

It feels like this Season of The Flash is getting back on track after a pretty horrible run in the middle. One of the interesting reasons for this is, the less Barry & Iris we get, the better the show has been. Now that's not to say that Barry & Iris are the problem and are terrible and need to go. No, the problem has been the writing for both characters. This show struggles when it makes Barry and Iris regress into making really bad decisions.

This week, the show takes them completely off the board and we get Allegra learning the hard lessons Barry learned about being too naive. And you know what? It worked. It also helped that we get Sue aka Jamie Bond as well as Joe leaning into what makes him Joe.  Kriss and Dpalm record the Mailbag at the end of every month.

Legends of Tomorrow S6E7 Review – Super Tuesday Recap

Gotta love how Legends of Tomorrow mixes the serious with the ridiculous. We get the crew coming up with the most ridiculous plan to save Sara (which turns out to be how she got kidnapped to begin with) while also getting very real moments tied to the theme of "What makes us who we are?". Past Sara gives some really solid advice to Spooner and then her future self gets that same type of advice from Mick. This is what makes Legends such a great show. If you've been following the story of Sara Lance since Arrow, this all fits perfectly with her development as a character. Her constant battle with her identity has been etched into this character since she showed up as still alive having not died on the Queen's Gambit. Seeing her once again return from death and having the question of "Am I really me?" being asked never gets old because it's not only a defining part of her character but is done differently each time.  Also, this seems to set up perfectly for John needing to get the source of alien magic so he can perform a magical alien exorcism to get the alien part out of Sara. Or at least try.  Oh and bring back ConstaNate. We're onboard. Kriss and Dpalm record the Mailbag at the end of every month.

So two episodes back from the break and it really feels like The Flash is getting back to the show we want. This episode, Chester officially takes over as the new man in the chair and with that comes the predictable stumbles. But this is also the show we expect. With Barry helping Cecile face her demons and Iris helping Chester realize that he is a valued member of the team and he doesn't have to overcompensate. This is the Barry & Iris we want to see. The "elders" of the team/family, stepping up and helping the other members grow. We don't need any set backs for Barry & Iris to do it either. Also...it was great to see Sue again.  Kriss and Dpalm record the Mailbag at the end of every month.

Ok let's get the bad stuff out of the way first. One, this episode feels like it probably should have been at least 2 episodes. The pace is all over the place and it's overstuff with different story elements. Also, we're still not feeling Spooner. It feels like each episode they're workshopping the character to see what will work. To be fair though, this isn't the first time a character on Legends has taken a while for us to warm up to, so if there's any show that can pull, it's this one. So with that all out of the way, we're starting to see how things are going to come together. Constantine is keeping his lack of powers from the team and so we know he's going to have to seek that alien magical source to get his back. Also, the theme of this season is clearly "what makes us, us". We're seeing it with Bishop and Sara (Sara is now a clone). Spooner trying to figure out what she is. Both Astra & John dealing with their new situation. Even Gary being an alien. It's always fun watching Legends start off feeling like it's just silliness with no real connections only to watch as the writers start pulling it all together.

When things aren't looking good, play the hits. It's always a good way to get your loyal fanbase back onboard. And with that in mind we can say that after the little break and this latest episode, The Flash hasn't completely lost us. It wasn't looking good there for a minute. The last two episodes before this weren't that good and really had us worried. But this episode being the final goodbye for Cisco and Team Flash did hit us pretty good. Mainly because they got back to basics and didn't have Barry and the team backsliding on their character development. If anything, Barry not initially showing emotion for Cisco leaving because he knew if he did, he would have asked Cisco to stay and Cisco would have...is the character development we're looking for. We don't want to see Barry continuing to make the mistakes he's made previously. Plus it was nice to have Vibe be the one to save the day.  We're definitely going to miss Cisco.

What the Hell was that? Seriously. What the Hell is going on with The Flash? We got a bit excited when we saw they were taking from the Williamson run and doing the Force War. There was so much potential with that story, particularly with dealing with Barry and bringing Family back together. And instead we get a two part, contradictory storyline that makes absolutely no sense. First it was the Forces were bad and tried to kill the Speedforce and needed to be stopped. Then it was Nora/SpeedForce was really the evil one (complete with a switch over to Goth attire). Then it was the Forces are Barry & Iris' children and need to be protected from their "sibling" the SpeedForce. We're just gonna ignore all the people Psych and Fuerza killed. Then...inexplicably this the forces go back to being the "bad guy" cause they're tearing apart of the city (unknowingly I guess? It's never really explained). We get some really really REALLY bad CGI in a fight. And then in the end, just like with Eva, it's all taken care of with the power of "Love". And that's all in addition to the random Frost storyline that literally erases The People vs Killer Frost (why did we go through all that just for her to be paroled for doing what she already did but now in a pointless fight?) and Joe West for some reason deciding to not be Joe West and sit on his ass and do nothing. Whut? Guys...this was not good. It was really really really bad. So bad it actually gave us pause as to whether we want to even finish the season and that has NEVER happened before for this show.We were giving them the benefit of the doubt at the beginning of the season because of Covid and the need to wrap up the last season. But now there's no excuse. We're glad they're taking a week off because we need a moment to talk ourselves back into finishing the season.

They've finally done it. Legends has finally done an episode that is so ridiculous that it even gave us pause. Maybe part of that was the really TERRIBLE JFK impersonation.

The new person on the Waverider always rubs people the wrong way at first but for the love of God can someone show this supposed "gun loving" character the proper way to hold a gun?

Who knew that Director Sharpe tasted like chicken? Of course it would be Gary to figure out first that the people after him and Sara were actually Ava clowns and of course he ate a few (It's going to take a while to get used to Gary being an alien). That's the great thing about Legends. We have no idea where any of the stuff is going with Sara and Gary but we're fully invested. And while we wait for it to be revealed, we get to deal with the usual Legends hijinks and watch the Legends spoof America's Got Talent/The Masked Singer to hold off an alien invasion.  What makes Legends work is that it leans into its ridiculousness and knows exactly what it is. We were disappointed with this weeks Flash episode because we had Barry doing the same dumb thing that he's been doing every season and it feels like we're getting now growth. But Legends does the same thing every season but manages to keep it fresh by mixing up the characters learning the lessons and using it as character growth. As ridiculous as this episode is we get more growth on social influencer Zari, another odd ball relationship (Zari and a Constantine that wants to settle down), and Ava telling Mick to get his shit together and calling him out. This show has always been about the cast and letting them do what they do best to tell the story and it really reminds us of how well Agents of SHIELD worked out.  Kriss and Dpalm record the Mailbag at the end of every month.

Episode 10 of Season 7 of  The Flash (Family Matters Part 1) is a bit of a frustrating and disappointing episode. Yes, this season is doing a great job of sticking to the theme of family and making it connect to all the characters on the show. We're also happy with the adaptation this season is doing with the Williamson run. That said, this episode was disappointing because it feels like Barry had a huge backslide. We've done this before. We've seen Barry push someone he's training too hard and not be understanding. Watching Barry push Alexa was just annoying. His whole thing of "We need to do this to protect yourself" made no sense. There's no indication that the other forces, even when trained could stop the Speed Force (see the end of the episode). Not only that but just logically, it makes no sense to train someone to use this power when you don't even fully understand it yourself. It would have made more sense if it was Iris or someone else on the team pushing Alexa to train but not Barry. Especially when he made a boneheaded decision the last episode (time travel...again Barry?). It shouldn't have taken Caitlin pointing out that Thawne Wells should more patience and understanding when trying to teach Barry to use his powers than Barry showed Alexa. Come on man. Our hope is that since this is a Part 1, Part 2 will make up for this momentary lapse. The good news is Barry seemed to finally get it. Problem is, in the end Alexa still went to help him so did he really learn a lesson? We'll see.  We'll also see what's next for Joe now that he's stepped down as Captain. We're really curious as to what Kramer's problem is. Her fight against metahumans seems way more personal than "a meta betrayed my team".  Kriss and Dpalm record the Mailbag at the end of every month.

Gotta hand it to Iris and Barry. They take the approach of "Go Big or Go Home" when it comes to bad ideas. First, Iris really gotta stop calling the Speed Force 'Nora'. That's not Barry's mom. Clearly. Also, while we appreciate the optimism and desire to save people/things, not everyone can be saved. When the Speed Force not only admits to manipulating Barry to help her attempt to kill another Force but then flat out says "You're gonna help me kill more", that's not the time for "We can still save her". On the flip side, Barry...time travel never goes well for you. Never. Don't even think about it. That said, all the choices, even the dumb ones, line up with the characters and the story that's been building. The Flash is about family and making Barry & Iris the creators/parents of these new forces make sense. It also highlights how much not having a Flash Family anymore has affected them. Flashes don't run alone. And right now we're seeing more and more of the non-runner family slip away. Wells is gone. Frost is locked up. And it seems like Cisco is finally ready to leave Central City. Clearly the big theme this season is family and building the Flash family back up.

Never ask what's in the secret sauce. Never. It never ends well and you're never going to want to know the answer. As always, what makes Legends of Tomorrow so good is that it's able to be absolutely ridiculous, while also having serious moments. Sure it's easy to focus on the ridiculous things like the not-Mothra Mothra (complete with Godzilla roar), the not-so-subtle shots at McDonalds or Sara & Gary following a dog on an alien planet with a scarf. But there are other things that actually connect to the ongoing themes and story on the show: Nate has actually been really enjoyable this season. Nate is at his best when he's not just blindly following behind his latest love. He actually seems content and accepts what's happened to Zari and that just makes for a better character. Also, he's a good character to be the number 2 to Ava and remind her that it's okay to not be okay with Sara being gone Ava's actually becoming a good Captain because she's leaning into the disorganization of the legends and recognizing that that is what makes them work. This is what Sara wanted her to understand last season and she's doing it. Also, as a whole, the Legends have been pretty competent so far this season and part of that is that Ava is leaning into their strengths Sara has always been special but it seems we might be getting more information on that and why Gary was told that she was the one to capture Spooner is this season's misfit that is joining the Legends and well, can't argue with her plan: Save Sara and shoot as many aliens as possible. We can work with that We don't know where this season is going but we're all on board for whatever it is. Kriss and Dpalm record the Mailbag at the end of every month.

But now with the Speed Force back, the force is clearly different and more nurturing and mother-like than it ever was. That clearly was going to have an affect on Barry and we're glad to see the show address it Frost is a felon. We've been saying this for a while and it seems like the show is finally addressing this. They also made a point to clean up the fact that she never killed anyone.  The fact that the show is addressing these things also makes us look at the things they suspiciously haven't addressed.

They say Black women will change your life. I'm not sure John Walker having an existential crisis after the Dora Milaje whooped his ass is what folks had in mind with that saying but damn if it ain't true. Sam and Bucky knew they ain't want no trouble with Ayo or the Dora Milaje but John Walker's ass needed to be handed to him for him to understand that just because he has the title and shield of Captain America, he can still catch them hands. Episode 4 really solidifies why Sam is the one Steve gave the shield to and why he's the one that needs to carry. And not just because Walker got caught in 4K murdering someone with the shield. This episode also went back to lean on how we first met Sam. That he's worked with veterans that suffer from PTSD and that he can sympathize with Karli  cause and motives but not her methods. The fact that his first instinct is to try to talk to her and sympathize instead of just dismissing her concerns and cause like John felt very Steve Rogers. It was also great how this episode showed Sam as the only one who would turn down the serum because he knows he doesn't need it to be a hero. Karli felt she needed the serum and to give it to more people because that power would finally make those in power take her demands seriously. While sympathetic, it's a flawed position. And John? Well John thinks the only thing keeping him from getting the respect Steve had is the serum, not realizing he doesn't have any of Steve's character.  These episodes continue to get better. We've also officially reached the territory where we're sad that there are only 2 more episodes left.

First and foremost, congrats to Dpalm for his cameo as the bartender in this episode (Its not really him). This episode continues to build out not only the characters of Sam & Bucky but the entire MCU world post blip. So much so that some of us even believe that Sharon has fallen so far that she's now the super secret Power Broker. And while that might seem like a big departure for the character, what Marvel is doing with the universe post-blip makes it a possibility.  The other thing this show is doing is showing us the progression of Sam not only needing to pick up the shield but coming to the realization that he's the only one that can. We see John Walker getting all the disrespect he deserves and not understanding that just because he's been named Captain America and has the shield, it doesn't mean he gets the respect. And on the other side, Karli is showing that just because you have a noble cause and the power of a super soldier, it doesn't make you less of a mass murderer. On top of all that, making the legacy of the current super soldier serum tie back to Isaiah, the forgotten Black super soldier, the table is being set for Sam to pick up the shield. Also, gotta love Zemo (unless you're from Wakanda). We know we can't trust him but so far...he's not been wrong. Of course Ayo showing up at the end of this episode is clearly gonna complicate things for Bucky (Unless that was always his plan).   Like what you hear?

Apparently the other Forces got together and jumped the Speed Force and beat it like it stole it stole money from them. The Flash is clearly taking elements from Williamson's run but are making changes to tell the story they want. The Speed Force getting beat down is definitely not from the books but hey, its keeping things interesting. We're wondering if on the show they're making the other forces emulate the emotional spectrum, kinda like what Geoff Johns did with Green Lantern. It also makes us even more skeptical of the original Wells coming back and if somehow he's also a product of one of the new forces. Three things stand out to us specifically for this episode:  Cecile is becoming pretty powerful.This is the second episode where she's demonstrated that her powers can be a good thing (or scary if used wrongly) We're appreciative that they're bringing up the fact that Frost used to be "Killer Frost" and literally murdered people. Can't really sweep that under the rug  Where is the baby? Where is Joe & Cecile's baby? Is it just one of those things the show isn't show or is this part of a bigger plot that Crisis changed things.  Kriss and Dpalm record the Mailbag at the end of every month.

Before Batwoman heads into another hiatus, Shanna, Ro, and Hiroja are back to talk about all the post-Coryana drama in Gotham.  Alice, who is apparently on a completely separate show, is stuck in a liminal space after learning that Kate is dead. Because the stages of grief are just guidelines, Alice decides she's going to skip right over them by telling her brain that she never had a sister. This should be interesting when Kate returns with a new face.  It's okay that Alice is having a full psychotic break because Black Mask AKA Roman Sionis (Peter Outerbridge) is here and he's our official big baddie of the season. Ryan has inherited his vendetta against Batwoman, the Crows, and GCPD, which kicks off when the False Face Gang shoots the police chief.  Angelique was driving the getaway car and Sophie's sister, Jordan, was the sole witness pulling Ryan and Sophie into the mix. Jordan (Keeya King) is an activist and community organizer so she presents an interesting moral dilemma for Sophie who is finally starting to realize that she may not be on the side of right. And, surprisingly, Jordan also challenges Ryan's image of Batwoman as a savior when she questions the "throw a Batarang, ask questions later" nature of what Batwoman does.  Right now Batwoman is settling into itself and despite some questionable glossing over of certain plot points (the Bat Team just has a desert rose plant now? We're not going to investigate how?) using characters like Jordan and villains like Black Mask to bring our character's issues to a head is exactly what this show needs.    Like what you hear?

Nice arm you got there. Be a shame if someone came and ripped it off. Especially if that "someone" was a Black super solider. We knew that Marvel had cast Carl Lumby as Isaiah Bradley but we didn't know how they would integrate him into the story. Look, everyone knows the cover of Truth: Red, White & Black that tells Bradley's story but let's be honest. The story itself is...well...not very good. Episode 2 of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier though sets up Bradley's background by 1. not making him brain dead and a drooling mess 2. Establishing him as a bad ass who took the Winter Soldier's arm back in the 50's 3. establishes the horrific legacy of the super solider serum and how it was used on Black soldiers who were experimented on and then swept under the rug. Now instead of being a cringy story that folks have to add onto to make better, it starts off as a story we want to see more of. And that's just a small part of this episode. This episode opens up humanizing John Walker and showing him as a pretty competent choice for Captain America and we hate it. The propaganda is so strong that. We had to begrudgingly admit that he's more than capable with the shield in his hand. Of course Walker's overconfidence and assholery comes out the further we get into the episode which we appreciate. We also appreciate Bucky not being with the shit at all.  We also get some deep cut Captain America references, from Battlestar to the Power Broker. We get more understanding of the Flagsmasher's motivations and we aren't going to say they're 100% right but they're making some solid points. Especially about the feelings fo those that were left to survive during the blip.

Shanna, Ro, and Hiroja are back to talk about the latest episodes of Batwoman, which tie-up the threads surrounding Safiyah, Coryana, and the mystery of Kate Kane ... or do they? While Batwoman managed to give us many moments of levity and even some of the plot points we predicted (hello, Tatiana calling Sophie an oppressor), the show doesn't seem quite ready to commit to Ryan as our new Batwoman and everything they've built suffers for it.  In "It's Best You Stop Digging", Ryan runs around Gotham with Kryptonite poisoning instead of letting Mary and Luke take the stage and work to save her life; something that would have solidified her as their new Batwoman. Similarly, in "I've Survived Much Worse" Ryan is inexplicably pushed to go to Coryana (still poisoned but now with an adrenaline shot) and she still can't manage to get the one thing that will save her life. Although the episode ends on a life-saving cliffhanger, most of the development the show has been building is undercut by the reveal that Kate Kane is still alive as well as and the subsequent news that the role was recast. These episodes were an opportunity for Batwoman to fully entrench Ryan (and Javicia Leslie) as our new Batwoman and lay Kate Kane to rest for a time, but now it feels like Kate Kane will continue to be a dangling thread that won't be tied off any time soon.    Like what you hear?

We're back with more MCU Phase 4 Disney+ goodness. This time we're back to explore two more characters: Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes, the Falcon and Winter Soldier. Right out the gate this series lets us know it's going to be way more action packed than WandaVision. Apparently Sam spent the 5 years in the blip, not erased out of existence but in a Crossfit gym. The opening of this series lets us know right away that the powers that be that don't want Sam to keep the shield don't have a leg to stand on. This is the first time we've seen Sam doing hero shit on his own and....he's damn good at it. Still not good enough to get a loan as a black man though. On the Bucky side, it's nice to see the trend of using the Disney+ shows to explore the characters that have deep troubling issues that we've just never had a chance to explore. Bucky being forced to go to therapy is good and it's also great that his therapist doesn't let him off the hook. Like WandaVision, when you think about how recent some of the most traumatic events to happen to some of these characters are, it's a wonder they're not all in therapy.  I know some might be confused as to why Sam would give up the shield and where the hell Great Value Captain America aka John Walker came from. But like WandaVision, audiences need to trust the process and just let the story unfold. One of the best things so far about the Disney+ shows being the intro to MCU Phase 4 is that they're reenforcing how serious that "Five Years Later" was in Endgame. There's also a sense of anti-hero sentiment that's also going on and that never ends well.  Listen as Ro, Kriss and Dpalm discuss this episode and have reasonable predictions (The therapist is Mephisto).   Like what you hear?

We won't lie. We're grading this episode on a curve. While it's the third episode of season 7, this is clearly what was planned to be the end of last season. COVID ended up cutting that short and so this episode is wrapping all that up. So it's with that context that we're willing to overlook a few things with this episode. It's clearly rushed and a bit cheesy and on the nose ("It's about love"). But that said, it all still fits over all with what the show is trying to do with Barry and his team. Leaning on Barry and his team and differentiating him from his enemies was a big theme from last season. And while very heavy handed, Iris being Barry's "lightning rod" is also a key element of the character.  More importantly we're excited about where the show is going next now that they've been able to wrap up the story they were prevented from finishing last season. Once again  this show is pulling from the latest run of The Flash and we're seeing that not only did the Speedforce come back but it seems we're getting the other Forces as well. Which should be pretty exciting. Also, how they decided to handle the firing of Hartley Sawyer was hilarious. Kriss and Dpalm record the Mailbag at the end of every month.

This latest episode of The Flash is further evidence that the beginning of Season 7 is just the true end of Season 6 and we're not mad at that all. COVID clearly caused an abrupt end to the last season and instead of just moving on, The Flash is trying to complete that story before moving on to the next and that's a good thing. We really enjoy how they're tying everything back to Barry and his heart and what makes him a hero. By taking that part of Barry aware this episode and making him more tactical, we see that the benefits are short-lived and that the answer for Barry is to always lean on his family and team. It's the classic "my friends and family don't make me weak they make me stronger" troupe which is probably a bit heavy handed but we'll take it.  Also, there must always be a Wells.  Kriss and Dpalm record the Mailbag at the end of every month.

Man it's good to be back. Covid ended The Flash's last season a bit early and delayed the start of season 7. There was such a delay that we actually had a little apprehension about the show coming back. Were we really down for another 22 episode season? Were we going to remember what happened in season 6? Were we going to feel the same connection to the show? Yes. The answer is yes. Yes we are.  The start of season 7 picks up right where we left off with season 6 and did a great job of getting us back up to speed and reminding us that this show was very good before things got shut down. Eva is still a real problem. We're getting closer and closer to our dream of an all female Rogues team. The show continues to pull from the EXCELLENT Williamson run of The Flash and really gets us thinking about where this show could go. Look, there will be plenty of time to be critical but right now, we're just happy the Fastest Man Alive is back on TV. Kriss and Dpalm record the Mailbag at the end of every month.
