SPOILERS/NSFW - Tonight we talk about the mid-season trailers for Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow! We couldn't be more excited about what's coming up in the DCTV multiverse! From Maxwell Lord beating the hell out of James Olsen to the return of the Reverse Flash, we romp around the newly released trailers for the season remainders with more glee than one might realistically conceive of! We talk the snark of Snart, the knives of White Canary, the ... life insurance policies of Ghosts?

Meanwhile, her aunt is exacting some kind of plan, by Rao, and it don't look pretty. Like, literally. Bad CGI and stuff. But what's this? James notices that Winn is in pain over Kara? Well, isn't that nice! And he's not the only one noticing stuff! Cat Grant finally notices that the chick getting her lunch everyday is Supergirl!

SPOILERS/NSFW - This episode we review "Dark Waters", the ninth episode of the fourth season of 'Arrow'. After Damien Darhk commands a terrorist attack on the Starling Bay that Oliver and his campaign staff and supporters are trying to clean up, Ollie decides to out Damien Darhk on television. Not a good idea.
On the fun side, Felicity at least got to see that her mom and Captain Lance are bumping uglies before she got lead riddled to the most haunting rendition of Little Drummer Boy we've ever heard! Not to say that Felicity is in any real danger. They really hammered us with those reminders of her being Jewish... we take that as a "no rocks on the grave" sign.
SPOILER/NSFW - Mark Hamil is back as the Trickster in Central City, and he's teaming with Captain Cold and Weather Wizard to kill the Flash! Or maybe just Weather Wizard. Snart is in devlopment at the moment. Speaking of development, Jay and Caitlin are finally moving towards something interesting it seems, while Iris FINALLY breaks and tells Joe about Wally's existence... and of course, we wind up just loving Joe more. Can we just have Mark Hamil on every episode though? Please?
Also, Zoom and Wells? Sigh, that's not going to turn out well. Or wells. HA-HA!
SPOILERS/NSFW - What a crazy episode of Supergirl, folks! Looks like the
end times for the people of National City, cause there are explosions
and earthquakes, looting, and no Supergirl to be found! Looks like Kara
activated her solar flare ability on Red Tornado, so she is officially
human for a day! See what I did there? Yeah, I didn't think it was very
clever, either! But Hank Henshaw's got a secret that's about to be
spilled, and holy cow is it a doozie! Well, less of a doozie and more of
a martian. Yeah. And we get to see Chas from Constantine play a weird
Klingon version of Jemm. It's really pretty disconcerting. Oh, and Winn
goes to the DARK SIDE!

SPOILERS/NSFW - Matt Carroll of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Podcast
joins us on this in-depth review/discussion of the 'Batman v Superman:
Dawn of Justice' trailer that's divided the internet! Did they already
give away too much of the movie's plot? We discuss this, Doomsday, CGI,
Ben Affleck's Batman, Wonder Woman, Darkseid's parademons, David S.
Goyer's screenwriting past, Zach Snyder's ability to bring comic books
to the screen, Batman's fear flinch, and the state of the DCEU! We have a

'Supergirl' 1x06 - 'Red Faced' Review
General Sam Lane,
universally reviled anti-alien dick is in town. He's being mean to the
DEO, and so is his daughter Lucy (who really isn't very impressed with
Supergirl). What's more, Cat Grant's mother, another universally
reviled dick, is in town. She's being mean to Cat. So Cat is being
mean to Kara. And even if Kara, Winn, and James get to keep their only
normal tradition of having game night, it's going to be ruined because
James invited Lucy. Of course, that all might be ruined because of the
army's new alien-hunting android Red Tornado being let loose on National
City thanks to Kara's anger getting the best of her. Why is she so
angry, anyway? It could be all those dicks being mean to her and her
friends, but apparently there is a Cousin OIiver styled anger behind
'Gotham' 2x11 - 'Worse Than a Crime' Review
This is the
last part of the first part of the second season! Jim Gordon just woke
up to find himself in the company of Penguin and Edward Nygma! Alfred
just woke up in a junkyard! Bruce just woke up in Theo Galavan's
insideous clutches! Will Silver wake up in time to make a positive
difference? So much crazy awesome on this fall finale of 'Gotham', and
we're chomping at the bit to see what comes next in February!
notices a drone following her, and quickly finds herself watching Cat
Grant's young son while the DEO tries to track down a bomber/former
employee of Maxwell Lord! Kara sees red eyes Henshaw, and Winn plays
video games with Cat's kid! James and Lucy are getting back together.
Woo. This might have been a better episode if CBS didn't switch the
episodes up, but it's still pretty good! We might be having a great
time with Maxwell Lord!
Gordon has to deal with Theo Galavan getting out of prison due to lack
of evidence, Bruce Wayne gets pulled into a back room where he'll lose
fingers unless Silver St Cloud tells The Knife who killed The Waynes,
and Penguin awakes to the confessions of Edward Nygma who hopes for a
mentor to guide him in his new life of murder! Hell of a fun episode!
Especially when Alfred pulls his gun and fights Tabitha Galavan!
Diggle is back. Not as a ghost... well, I guess he his, kinda. So
Diggle wants to take him back, but doesn't want the team to help. Of
course the team is going to help! Even Ray! Also, Captain Lance grows
some big shiny balls, and Damien Darhk continues to be one scary
mother! Until Thea shows up... Speaking of Thea, she's dating Oliver's
campaign manager and receiving offers to kill pedophiles from her
dad--all in the name of sating that damned blood lust. Sigh, good times.
may have been one of the worst episodes of 'Gotham' yet, but this one
may be a ship-righter! Gordon dodges assassination attempts, Captain
Barnes is a badass (and really heartfelt when needed), and despite our
worries, Eduardo the rock-a-billy cannibal was actually a lot of fun!
We have some good times with Edward Nygma as he tries to coax Penguin
into mentoring him on his new life of murder while young Bruce attempts
to disobey a very cross Alfred!
'Supergirl' 1x05 - 'Livewire' Review
Well, due to CBS rescheduling out of respect for the victims of the Paris bombings, we'll be reviewing the 5th episode of 'Supergirl' season 1, "Livewire"! Listen as we argue over Livewire's slightly more believable origin story! Marvel (sorry, uh, ... DC?) at how many HILARIOUS lines we thought there were in this episode, and gasp as we heap praise after praise upon Calista Flockhart! Also: Bitching about Helen Slater, passive aggressive Mother tropes, and bad telescope science!
So Barry is
almost better from being paralyzed by Zoom, but his head is really not
in the game! He's lying to Patty, and not even covering his tracks
very well... so perfect time for Gorilla Grodd to come back -- and kidnap Caitlin no less! Time for Harry Wells of Earth-2 to throw on a
Reverse Flash costume and give the Eobard persona the old college try!
But wait, Henry Allen is back, and he might be able to get Barry back in
the suit just in time to help the team!

we didn't have a podcast where we talked about 'Arrow'... well,
honestly, we'd still be watching it and bitching about it. I can't help
but wonder who the 'Lost Souls' of the title are. The writers? While
there was some good in this episode (Ray), it is mostly overshadowed by a
boring plot which honestly just felt like it was 'Arrow' doing its part
to build up to 'Legends of Tomorrow'. Not much else happens in this
episode, really. Felicity blames herself, Ollie wonders what he did
that was so wrong (aside from texting Felicity's mom), and Quentin has a
meet cute. Sigh. Oh, and so does Thea. Folk be hooking up, ya'll.
'The Flash' 2x06 - 'Enter Zoom' Review
fashion, the STAR Labs crew tries to lure Zoom from Earth-2 utilizing
Linda Park masquerading as Linda Park. Ahem. Yeah, okay, so things are
getting more complicated on 'The Flash', but also more fun! Patty and
Barry continue to be adorable, Joe doesn't seem interested in their
romance, and Cisco tries to "vibe" something off of Earth-2 Harrison
Wells. Oh, and just when it looks like this may be just a fun episode,
things get super heavy in a flash! Oh, and we have some great listener
feedback and theories!
'Supergirl' 1x03 - 'Fight or Flight' Review
Superman villain that Clark has never been able to defeat comes looking
for Kara, and she refuses to get help from her cousin. What she also
refuses to do? Acknowledge the extremely obvious undying love that her
best friend Winn has for her. Of course, there's at least a fairly good
chance he'll become Toyman given his name and all the toys on his
desk. Probably wasn't the best idea for James to come in throwing
Superman's real identity around, was it? Sigh.
Galavan has finally given Barbara what she wants: permission to kill Jim
Gordon. So of course, she decides she has to marry him. Or something.
Not a lot is very clear with Barbara when it comes to character
motivation. Hell, come to think of it, Gordon's got some weird shit to
answer for, too. Like why kiss Barbara in the interrogation room? I know
it's to lead her on, but everyone acknowledges she's laying a trap.
Everyone knows, right? Sigh. Oh, and Edward Nygma and the mystery of
the stolen finger sandwich!

as usual, is an idiot, and pretty much no matter how you look at it,
this is the worst she's been in a while. She's just terrible. But
everyone should relax! John Constantine is finally here! Here
Constantine is in both flashback and present day form defeating evil
with ancient incantations and his quick british wit! We've missed the
bloke for sure! Meanwhile, Quentin Lance finds an unlikely ally in
Diggle, and the two embark on a journey to erase a number of names on a
list of some sort and find out why Andy Diggle (John's brother) had to
'The Flash' 2x05 - 'The Darkness and the Light' Review
Wells from Earth-2 is now running around trying to help Barry Allen
stop Zoom! Except Jay Garrick doesn't trust Wells, and neither does
Cisco, Caitlin, Joe, or Iris. Only Barry seems to be inexplicably okay
with his former mentor/arch nemesis returning in the form of an
alternate world doppleganger. Of course, Dr. Light of Earth-2 also
shows up, and leaves Barry blind--just in time for his date with Patty!
The Berlanti team struggle to make Supergirl an interesting show. 'Supergirl' is as sloppy as its lead character is, creating oil spills and water logged aircraft for every life it saves. With a hellgrammite on the loose and Kara's aunt Astra being particularly nuts, there's a lot going on this episode--including Cat Grant's unrealistic demands that one of her staff--namely James Olsen--get her an interview with Supergirl or else! There's a whole lot of nothing going on for the second episode of 'Supergirl', and we're talking about it right now!
Oh, there are so many things wrong with Gotham these days. Theo Galavan is mayor, Jim Gordon is a murderer at the behest of Penguin, Selina is being ousted by a true Melrose Place type who's only 14. Where will the drama end? Don't ask Harvey Bullock, for such questions are above his pay grade and below his sense of wonder. But what of Butch's new found freedom? How does Penguin react to the death of his beloved mother? And how should we react to the fact that 'Gotham' s quickly becoming the most 'Rambo' of the DCTV series so far?
Daniel Cerone has graced us with a free-to-download pdf of an unproduced script for the sadly cancelled series 'Constantine'. As a special episode for this week, we decided to read the script (let's not kid ourselves, we were going to anyway!), and give you a recap and review of the episode!
When a group of friends kill the most annoying bastard in town, he comes back as a Meat Cutter, a zombie killer that is a lot like Jason Vorhees, but with goat skin strapped to his face instead of a hockey mask. Of course, this isn't the first time Judith has seen something like this. Who's Judith? Just one of the old gang from Newcastle. She's found meaning in tracking these Meat Cutters down all over the country. Of course, Constantine rightfully believes that there's something more sinister going on.
So come with us on our weirdest episode yet! We're reviewing a freaking script, guys!

Well, Oliver announces that he's running for mayor of Star City. No one takes him seriously. Big shock. Speaking of big shocks, Laurel decides to show Quentin that Sara's alive! Bad idea. But Oliver and Lance are working together, and things seem amiable! Amazing! Except Oliver finds out that Quentin is working with Damien Darhk. So the two must have words. Oh, and Mr. Terrific and Felicity have some Ray-centric adventures while Thea begings running Oliver's campaign! Oh, and there's a new lair! A pretty new Arrow Cave from Cisco, you guys!
Iris has a brother! We bet anything we know his name... Also, Iris' mother is about to croak! And everything else in the episode is awesome! From Barry and Patty chemistry to dickish scientist being a dick, to J. Jackson becoming the answer to Stein's terrible Firestorm matrix problems! Oh, and can I just say HELL YES King Shark!? Not the best episode of 'The Flash', but we got King Shark being taken down by Harrison Wells... and Harrison Wells being spotted by Dr. Tina McGee! You know, the lady from that old Flash thing... Wonder why they're bringing HER in again... and again... and again...
Selina makes Jim Gordon promise to protect Bridget, but Jim may be making promises he can't keep, according to Captain Barnes. Meanwhile, so many burned bodies! Okay, so two. And Butch has a hammer hand! Lame! I specifically seem to remember mention of a chainsaw hand. Sigh. Guess 'Ash vs Evil Dead' will give me that. So as per in the comics, Silver St Cloud is only there to needlessly distract Bruce from being a bad ass. And Edward Nygma lays some pipe and then crushes some windpipe. Ahem. So Gotham! Woo! What did you think of this episode?
Flying quickly between tired, played-out superhero procedural, fresh new feministic jam, frantic frivolous cheese fest, and badass action drama, 'Supergirl' is uneven at best. It's not the comic book adaptation we necessarily want or need. We have so many to choose from these days... It may appear too heavy-handed at times. It seems that it's trying a bit too hard. But it's not terrible. It's not even always mediocre. We'll get into more of why we feel the way we do in our full episode... Weigh in and tell us what you think! Did you like the 'Supergirl' pilot?
'Arrow' 4x03 - 'Restoration' Review
So Laurel and Thea have gone all modern-day superhero Thelma and Louise on us, and have stolen Sarah's body from the cemetary. One short trip to Nanda Parbat later, and they're ready to start haggling with the new Ra's al Ghul over whether or not they're allowed to restore Sara's dead body in the Lazarus pit. Oh, also, they totally want to fix Thea's burgeoning bloodlust.
Speaking of restoration, Felicity has decided she's had enough of Oliver and Diggle acting like a couple of children. So time to restore that relationship! Also, Double Down and Damien Darhk! Yay alliterative villain names
'The Flash' 2x03 - 'Family of Rogues' Review
The Speed Cannon is ready, but Jay Garrick may not be ready to go home quite yet. Professor Stein is still on the mend, and begins exhibiting strange Firestorm-like behavior that he can't control! But of course everything becomes more complicated when Lisa Snart shows up at STAR Labs injured and with a bomb in her head! She believes her brother has been kidknapped, but he's actually in cahoots with their estranged, abusive father! Is this episode worth a week's wait? Does Michael Ironside kill it? Well, he kills a few things...
Gotham 2x05 Scarification Review
secrets are uncovered when arsonists hired by Penguin (at the behest of
Theo Galavan), begin to torch places around town. But with one arsonist
dead thanks to keeping C4 next to his dick in the Criminal Costco, the
gang forces their little sister Bridgit to become Firefly. But what
secrets are revealed by an old Wayne family knife? Before Galavan, what
name did Theo's family have in Gotham, and what prompted their
departure? And how many young police officers will Captain Barnes allow
to red shirt away under his watch? We talk about all this and more in
our review of Gotham 2x05, "Scarification"...
'Arrow' 4x02 - 'The Candidate' Review
Arrow is kicking ass, but Thea is enjoying the fight a little too much!
An old Queen family friend decides to run for Mayor, but as everyone
knows, Mayors don't last for long in Star City! In this case, Damien
Darhk has decided to have Anarky grab the new candidate's daughter to
pressure her into dropping out of the race! While looking for the
kidnapper, Thea crosses the line, and all of this of course gives Laurel
an idea that no one should ever have: let's raise the dead! Just one
more reason to make the unrelenting Quentin Lance hate Team Arrow even
The Flash 2x02 - The Flash of Two Worlds Review
Garrick shows up, and Barry doesn't trust him! Caitlin runs some, ahem,
very thorough tests on him, and then the fun begins! Sand Demon
Dopplegangers, Joe's misunderstanding of multiverse theory, Cisco's
scene Vibe visions, Patty Spivot's tremendous chemistry with Barry and
determination with Joe, Iris pep talks, and that last shot of Earth 2
and Harrison Wells has us flipping out over this episode! What did you
The new GCPD captain hangs a lantern
on some issues we had in "The Last Laugh", and assembles a strike force
with his new right-hand man, Detective Jim Gordon! Meanwhile, Theo
Galavan holds Penguin's mother captive in order to assure that Oswald

Kringle, and Alfred slaps Selina Kyle and sends Bruce to training after a
long, hard day at prep school! So how did 'Gotham' 2x04 - "Strike
Force" fare in our minds? What did you think?

'The Flash' 2x01 - 'The Man Who Saved Central City' Review
It's been six months since the Flash saved Central City from a massive singularity, and as the city prepares to embrace their hero with Flash Day, Barry finds himself shutting himself off from his friends and family. Harrison Wells has left STAR Labs to him under the stipulation that he watch a video -- Wells' last will and testament -- but Barry is afraid of its contents.
Meanwhile, Caitlin has begun working under Dr. Tina McGee at Mercury Labs, Cisco is working for Joe under the new metahuman task force, and Iris has become convinced that they must force Barry into accepting the team's help. With a new metahuman from Earth-2 coming to kill The Flash at the behest of the mysterious Zoom, Barry will need all the help he can get!
'Arrow' 4x04 - 'Green Arrow' Review This episode we talk the first episode of 'Arrow' season 4, "Green Arrow"! Oliver and Felicity are called back to the newly renamed Star City when Damien Darhk and his army of ghosts begin an endless crime wave on the city with the hopes of destroying it! With Damien displaying healthy doses of candor, ill-will, and magic, Oliver finds himself at odds with everyone on his old team. From Diggle's inability to forgive him for his actions with the League of Assassins, to Speedy's increasingly violent behavior, things are going to be especially rocky for Team Arrow this year -- especially given that last scene in the grave yard! WTF!?
With the GCPD diminished after the attack by Jerome and the Maniax, Gordon aims to find Jerome and put an end to the insanity brewing in his city. Jerome attempts to kill his father and plant evidence that his father was the one who broke him out of Arkham, and then puts on a deadly magic show -- far more deadly than Jerome even imagined! But could the insanity continue further? Come with us as we review 'Gotham' 2x02 - 'The Last Laugh' and discuss what might have been a true 'jump the shark' moment in this controversial prequel series!
From 1990 to 1991, John Wesley Shipp portrayed Barry Allen, a.k.a. the Flash on a television series that lasted just one season. How does it stack up as a series today? How does it stack up to its contemporaries? Should it be included in the newly emerging multiverse that CW's 'The Flash' is constructing? With Amanda Pays (Dr. Tina McGee), Vito D'Ambrosio (Anthony Bellows), and Mark Hamill (The Trickster) all reprising their roles from the classic series and John Wesley Shipp portraying a particularly (at times) cagey Henry Allen, we wonder...
From Nick Pike's poor man's Kurt Russell to the questionable hair growth of Barry Allen's clone Pollux, we're talking the 90's Flash series!
So we watched 'Vixen', CW Seed's exclusive web series 'Vixen'.
Compelling female superhero origin? Check. Crossover with well-known
established 'Arrow' and 'The Flash' universe characters? Check.
Introduction to magic in said universe? Check. But what of execution?
Did Arrow and Flash come off correctly (even with Stephen Amell and
Grant Gustin providing voice work)? Was there enough meat and potatoes
in the six five-minute episodes to make it truly satisfying, or was this
just an awkward first look at what could become a truly cool character
within the mythos of the CW 'verse?
'Gotham' 2x02 - "Knock Knock" is
reviewed. Jerome, with the Maniax, has begun a blood curdling journey
of murder and mutilation! But it's a new day in Gotham City according to
newly promoted Comissioner Sarah Essen. With the Maniax fighting for
control of the gang, Bruce firing Alfred for smashing his father's
computer, and Jim being lured away from police headquarters by his
nutjob ex Barbara, "Knock Knock" seems to be at a level of cartoon that
we simply could not have anticipated... but is that a good thing?

When last we left Oliver Queen, he had renounced his status as the Starling City viglante known as the Arrow, and moved on to a new life with Felicity Smoak. Newly resurrected Thea stayed behind with Laurel and Diggle to carry on the work of Team Arrow, and Malcolm Merlyn was settling into his new role as Ra's Al Ghul: Leader of the League if Assassins! What new challenges await Ollie now that he's retired? Will he stay retired for long? Well, no. Of course not. With a new moniker and a new, deadly villain (Damien Darhk) to defeat, Oliver must rebuild the relationships he destroyed as heir to the demon's throne, as well as keep the relationships he's nurtured from becoming so much ash. And of course, there's also that Flash/Arrow crossover and the build up to DC's Legends of Tomorrow to worry about...
When last we left the Flash, he was super-speeding up skyscrapers and jumping off of flying debris to take on a massive singularity hovering above Central City! So what do we know about Season 2? A whole lot! We talk Zoom, the big bad of Season 2 as well as Caitlin Snow's eventual turn into Killer Frost, Cisco's metahuman status, Joe's new partner Patty Spivot, and of course, Jay Garrick - The Flash of Earth 2! And there is that little matter of there now being a living Harrison Wells roaming about...

'LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes - Justice League: Attack of the Legion of
Doom' might be aimed at a young audience, but it boasts some of the
finest voice actors in the business, and wields some genuine (albeit
tame) belly laughs for adults looking to find a suitable adventure for
the whole family! Come with us on a spoiler-filled adventure into the
LEGO DC Universe where Lex Luthor, Black Manta, and Sinestro hold
Wipe-out style try-outs for The Legion of Doom, and seek a
government-held secret that will finally give them the edge over their
hated do-gooder rivals, The Justice League!
Since the 1940s, Batman has been seen on the silver screen. But what's
the worst Batman film of all time? Today, we finish our 'Dark Knight
Trilogy' review with 'The Dark Knight Rises', a film that we believe is
in fact the worst Batman film of all time! We're willing to
begrudgingly accept Christian Bale's terrible Bat-voice, but what action
(or inaction) could be so egregious that we deem this film to be worse
than even 'Batman & Robin'? Rest assured, this isn't merely the
outcries of entitled fanboys, we have explanations for why this movie
fails on every conceivable level! Join us in our review for a movie
that scarred us both deeply! We hope you enjoy our misery!

With Matt Ryan's John Constantine officially heading to 'Arrow' this
fall, we decided to give you guys a proper review/recap of the
unfortunately cancelled 'Constantine'. We discuss why NBC killed it,
our thoughts on Liv Aberdeen (the pilot's audience proxy), and the
series regular characters, Zed, Chas, Manny, Papa Midnite, and of
course, John Constantine himself! We talk the show's triumphs, the
show's failures, the top three storylines we want resolved on 'Arrow',
and our highest hopes for our favorite Master of the Dark Arts . . .
ahem, Petty Dabbler.
'The Dark Knight' is often regarded as the best live-action Batman film
ever created. Some believe it to be the definitive interpretation of
the character, and some even praise it as being the best comic book
adaptation ever set to screen. Does it stack up to the praise, or does
it crumble under the weight of its own plot? From a car chase sequence
that breaks filmmaking rules to the Joker's immaculately-planned scheme
against schemers, we'll suss out the truth behind one of the most
beloved action thrillers of the last ten years! Join us this week as we
analyze and review 'The Dark Knight', Christopher Nolan's second foray
into the Batman universe!
Ben Affleck might be getting three whole solo Batman movies to himself!
Plus, we cover Thea's Arrow Season 4 love interest, deleted Arrow Season
3 action scenes, Stephen Amell on WWE, The Flash's strange new powers,
Gotham's lunatics running the asylum, Barbara becoming Harley Quinn, and
Justice League musings from Zack Snyder! Also, Jared Leto's crowbar
tweet to Eli Snyder and so much more!
Today we review Justice League: Gods and Monsters! Join us on an
adventure into an animated elseworld where General Zod sired the last
son of Krypton, Batman is a cold-blooded vampire who likes his blood
warm, and Wonder Woman is a New God MUTHA with a mother box! Turns out
DC-gone-bleak is damn near on fleek! (I'm... I'm so sorry)
