Oliver deals with being surrounded

The new team continues to whine even though there's a fair amount of reason for them to just shut up and take Oliver's olive branch.

The new team members continue to whine about being betrayed and spied on despite having previously betrayed and spied on the original Team Arrow.  So that's a ton of fun.  The writers also wave the Huntress name at us, but she's nowhere in sight.  Thea and Quentin?  Love them.  Also, am I wrong or did Felicity call Oliver daddy?  Does she call Ollie daddy?  Please tell me that's not a thing.

Black Lightning Has Fun with his daughters' kidnapper

We love Black Lightning! That's the short pitch. Come geek out with us!

SPOILERS/NSFW - DC on SCREEN #462 - Bonus: Black Lightning 1x01 - The Resurrection (Series Premiere) | Review
We love Black Lightning!  The city of Freeland has taken a somewhat dystopian vibe, and when Principal Jefferson Pierce's daughters are kidnapped by the 100 (a pretty rotten gang), he must come out of retirement to kick some ass!  From the gritty locales to the earnest tones, this show out-performs every CW show that has come before it (and in the ratings, too)!  The stakes are high, and there's a lot to be unpacked in the coming episodes, but Black Lightning is (so far) as solid a ride as you'll have from the CW.

We have a number of questions -- Why didn't Iris record her conversation with Mrs. Davoe?  Is Iris still a reporter?  Was Clifford's wheelchair in Barry's apartment?  Is Fallout the most tragic Flash villain so far?  
And we answer some of yours!

'Lucifer' Mid-Season 3 Premiere Review

Lucifer has Maze cut his wings off

SPOILERS/NSFW - DC on SCREEN #457 - 'Lucifer' Mid-Season 3 Premiere Review
A flashback episode!  We get to see everyone before the pilot!  Yeah, it's not as fun as it sounds.  Actually, it's just about as fun as it sounds.  It's a delightful excursion from good television.  We discuss our feelings on the episode.  What we liked, what we didn't.  We're not sure what to make of Fox and their scheduling either, but we certainly missed the ongoing narrative this time. We welcome you to listen and give us feedback about your own thoughts.

Freedom Fighters: The Ray | Review



Let's talk about this terrible animated "effort" from the Arrowverse, shall we?


Download Freedom Fighters: The Ray | Review

SPOILERS/NSFW - DC on SCREEN #456 - Freedom Fighters: The Ray | Review
Join us (Dave and Jason) as we discuss this terrible, disjointed "season" of bad acting, shallow characters, and 90's Fox Kids-looking animation!  Earth X has never been so boring!  Neither has Earth 1, for that matter!  With heavy-handedness, wooden dialogue, and a season that doesn't even amount to a first act, there's not a lot of positivity to go around on this episode.  But what did you think?
