    The Flash S7E6 The One with the Nineties

    The Flash S7E6 The One with the Nineties

    The Flash Season 7 Episode 6, The One With the Nineties feels like a personal attack. We don't know what the writers were thinking but reminding us about how long ago the 90's were was completely uncalled for. Also, people didn't dress like they do in this episode in 1998. Now if the setting was 1992, we'd have something less to complain about. Either way, this episode was an attack and we demand an immediate apology for reminding us how old we really are.

    Anyway, this episode introduces us to another one of the new forces, The Still Force. It also serves as a way for us to learn more about Chester who is really the only member of Team Flash that we don't know a lot about. We also have some questions about the Speed Force and if it's telling all that it knows to the team. And we also think that the new Wells might have more to do with this new force even though he doesn't make an appearance.

    The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Episode 3 Review – Wakanda Never Forgets

    The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Episode 3 Review – Wakanda Never Forgets

    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).

    Mailbag: Release the AvaVerse

    Mailbag: Release the AvaVerse

    It's time for another Mailbag episode. And what a difference a day makes. Kriss and Dpalm were going to record this on the 31st but changed their minds at the last minute and that little, innocent change had serious consequences. Because 24 hours later WB finally admits (once again) that they're not moving forward with Ava DuVernay's New Gods (As well as James Wan's The Trench). *sigh* Sometimes we hate being right. So for those keeping track at home: Spend 70 - 80 million more for a SnyderVerse they're not moving forward with (and only 36-37% of viewers completed) but cancel two projects (One by a Black woman and one by an Asian man) that could have had potential. Great job.

    It's not all bad news for DC though. James Gunn's The Suicide Squad looks amazing. Finally a DC film we're actually looking forward to seeing.

    The Flash S7E5 Fear Me Review

    The Flash S7E5 Fear Me Review

    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.

    Batwoman S2E9 Review – Defund GCPD

    Batwoman S2E9 Review – Defund GCPD

    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.

    The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Episode 2 Review

    The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Episode 2 Review

    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.

    Listen as we break down this episode and make sure you subscribe so you don't miss any of our discussions.

Always looking forward to your Legends Review

You guys have a joy for Legend of Tomorrow like I do.. Some podcast take this show to seriously, I just sit back and enjoy the fun..Especially during these crazy times with Shelter-in Place.

Welchelove ,

You guys had me at hello

I wish you guys could make sense of all my viewing choices. Cause when l’m watching these shows I no longer worry about the stuff I don’t understand cause I know the people of this network will explain it to a t. At first I started listening for agents and I wasn’t even watching arrow, the flash, legends or supergirl. But now I watch religiously cause of all you guys. Keep up the good work

Love the podcast - not some of the hosts

The Doctor really sounds like she is completely disinterested in being on the episodes she’s on. She doesn’t contribute a lot, and she cuts people off while they are talking.
