The Flash: Pilot

Join Shawn and Scott as they discuss and review the pilot episode of the series about crime scene investigator Barry Allen and the freak accident that transformed him into the world's fastest superhero: "The Flash"! Listen as they breakdown every little detail and Easter egg of the episode, from references to DC Comics' New 52, characters from the comics you may have missed, and references to the classic DC storyline "Crisis on Infinite Earths"! They'll also discuss the complicated history of The Flash and the many characters that have taken up the Flash mantle throughout the years in the comic books. Plus, there's some talk about The Arrow and DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and how this shared "Arrowverse" might absorb the new CW acquisition Supergirl! So grab a cup from Jitters, get your helmet strapped on, and listen to the story of the fastest man alive!

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.)
