Supergirl: Pilot

Join Scott and Shawn as they breakdown and review the pilot episode of DC Comics' hit series about Superman's cousin and her decision to devote her life to becoming a superhero: Supergirl! Listen as they detail the long history of the character of Supergirl, from a girl magically wished into existence by Jimmy Olsen in the 1950's (then crushed by a meteor), to Kara's death and resurrection, and a very poorly reviewed movie. They'll point out the many Easter eggs you may have missed, discuss the show's change of networks for season two, and theorize possible ways for Supergirl to join the other shows of the "Arrowverse". And if that wasn't enough, they'll explain how the episode wouldn't have a villain if it wasn't for Sean Connery wearing a speedo. (Sadly, this is true.) So wrap yourself in an indestructible blanket, eat a celebratory pizza, and join us for a trip to National City! Up, up and away!

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Pilot, Part 1

Join Scott and Kevin as they review the first part of the pilot for the highly anticipated series about a group of individuals with special abilities assembled by a time traveler from the 22nd century to stop a despotic ruler from conquering the world: DC's Legends of Tomorrow! Listen as they discuss, in detail, the characters in this show from their mostly golden and silver age origins in the pages of DC Comics, to their live action debuts in the various shows of the "Arrowverse". They'll talk about the troubles of trying to tell a good time travel story, what characters they liked and disliked, and the interesting acting choices by Wentworth Miller. So grab a timeship, set a course for this episode, and enjoy the show. Oh, and try not to disrupt the timeline! (Just kidding! Very few things actually bother the timeline, it seems.) 

And look for our review of Part Two in next weeks episode!

Arrow: Pilot

Join Lily, Shawn, and Scott as they enter the dark and brooding world of everybody's favorite hooded archer: Arrow! Listen as they take you through the history of the Green Arrow in comics, discuss why almost everybody in this show is a terrible person, and explain why this is just The CW's grittty mix of Batman, Robin Hood and My Name is Earl, with a little Hamlet and Harry and the Hendersons thrown in. (Listen and you'll get it.) And, as a bonus, Lily opens a present given to her by Shawn and Scott.

(Disclaimer: There are some very minor Arrow season 1 spoilers. Don't worry, they're brief and you'll know when they're coming.)
