'Arrow' 4x07 - 'Brotherhood' Review

So Andy 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.

'Gotham' 2x09 - 'A Bitter Pill to Swallow' Review

Last week 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!

WARNING: SPOILERS/NSFW '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!

'The Flash' 2x07 - 'Gorilla Warfare' Review

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!

'Arrow' 2x06 - 'Lost Souls' Review

Seriously, if 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
In hilarious 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!

Reactron, a 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.

Theo 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!

Laurel, 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 die!

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!

 'Supergirl' 1x02 - 'Stronger Together'

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?

 'Constantine' 1x14 - 'Final Girl' Script Review

 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!

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.

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...

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?
