    Supergirl S6E15-16 Review – Beautiful Nightmare - Super Tuesday Recap

    This week Shanna and The Doctor are catching up on two new episodes of Supergirl "Hope for Tomorrow" and "Nightmare in National City".  In "Hope for Tomorrow" Nyxly is still trying to find the totems and realizes that trying to inspire hope is for the birds (ed. note: #relatable) so she'll just let Kara get the totem and force her to hand it over. Nyxly uses the only leverage she can think of, kidnapping William who is the official scribe of the Super Friends. After trying (and failing) a bunch of times, Supergirl and the rest of the team manage to avert a potential nuclear war which gives the world a glimmer of hope and allows them to acquire the Hope totem. Supergirl decides to destroy the totem so Nyxly can never assemble the All-Stone but Nxyly receives an anonymous gift that may turn the tide back in her favor.  This takes us right into "Nightmare in National City". Nia has been searching for the Dream totem and she finds out that her sister Maeve took all of their mom's research books and ran away after their father found out that Maeve told Nia she's not a real woman. Nia has to work with her sister who is a wealth of information even if she is a b*tch. Meanwhile, Nyxly is working with a new mech suit courtesy of Lex Luthor, and when she manages to grab the Dream totem by the skin of her teeth, Lex uses it to reappear. Oh Nyxly, if you thought your father was a problem, you have no idea.  We talk totems, Alex's new role as an adoptive mom, and Kara's burnout all on this week's podcast.    Like what you hear?

    Legends of Tomorrow S7E2 Review

    23:52

    So...apparently we're doing robots this season of Legends of Tomorrow. Maybe. Possibly. Who knows? Honestly, it doesn't even matter. This show has a winning overall format and it's sticking to it. As silly as everything is, this show knows when to throw in the serious as well as the social commentary. They don't play around or sit on the fence about J Edgar Hoover and clearly state that he was a terrible man. They even go as far as giving us a rich vs working class debate right in the middle of that episode. This is what makes Legends of Tomorrow not only good but consistently good. They lean on their cast, split them up and dive right in. And they know when to make you care. Not a Spooner and Astra fan? Too bad because you're going to have to be.  Next episode will be the 100th episode and we know they're going to have something special for us. Can't wait.  Kriss and Dpalm record the Mailbag at the end of every month. If you want to send in your own questions and thoughts, email us: Mailbag@MTRNetwork.Net   Like what you hear?

    Legends of Tomorrow S7E1 Review

    27:28

    We're back with a new season oof Legends of Tomorrow. If it feels like season 6 just ended, it's because it literally ended last month. And the show picks up like we never left. The Legends are stuck in the 1920's with no Waverider or Time Bureau technology. So what do the Legends do? First they start pretending like they're part of the circus to explain the alien invasion. Then they set off on a crime spree as bank robbers on their way to New York to try to find a professor that could help them with time travel. Oh and they accidentally kill J Edgar Hoover on the way. This season is off to the typical Legends start.  Also what makes this show work is how they're able to integrate new characters and keep everything fresh. Sara is the last of the original Legends but the crew still feels like the Legends, even with the new members. Everyone has a role to fill and play and it all works so well.

    Supergirl S6E14 Review – A City of Karens & Chads - Super Tuesday Recap

    This week on Supergirl, Nyxly is after the totem of humanity and this gauntlet is like no other because while the totem draws the humanity out of the humans around Nyxly, it also channels all that humanity into her. Losing their humanity turns National City into a city full of Karens and Chads with everyone displaying their absolute worst selves. Even the dream couple that Kelly places one of her foster kids with turns out to be the worst when they're caught by an angry mob. And even though Nxyly has some moments of empathy in this episode, ultimately, she doesn't seem to be fully internalizing the lessons she's learning from her totem trials and it seems like that's going to be the key to truly defeating her brother and father.  Lena, on the other hand, is learning a lot about herself as she tries to master the magic she's inherited from her mother. It's a struggle for her because magic relies on intuition and feeling rather than facts and figures but with William's help, she's able to see past her frustration.  William, you ask? He's finally embedded with the Super Friends and he's granted exclusive access to their headquarters and behind the scenes of their missions. Initially, Kara and the others want to keep certain details of their missions under wraps but they realize that telling the public what's happening will garner more trust than holding back. Andrea (who has low-key become a J. Jonah Jameson-level villain) is still pushing for more. If she keeps going, she's going to end up causing serious damage in her pursuit to sell newspapers.  We talk about all this and more below. And let us know your predictions for the end of Supergirl because we're looking for some good theories about how this wraps up.    Like what you hear?

    The Great Substack Migration - Mailbag #46

    A little delayed but we're back with a new Mailbag episode. We're at a weird point. By now the Fall shows have usually started and we're already reviewing them. But COVID messed all that up. Now Legends is going to be back already but Flash doesn't start until November. It feels both too early and too late at the same time. But either way we're here with the mailbag. We discuss a range of topics from X-Men to comic creators taking their talents to Substack and what that could mean.  Oh and news that came out after we recorded: We FINALLY have a date for Saga's return: Jan 26 2022. It's about time. Kriss and Dpalm record the Mailbag at the end of every month. If you want to send in your own questions and thoughts, email us: Mailbag@MTRNetwork.Net   Like what you hear?

    Supergirl S6E16 Review – Courage to Heal - Super Tuesday Recap

    24:33

    This week, we begin the search for the totems, and the first one up is the totem of courage. When Kara and Nxyly get to the totem at the same time, they end up breaking it in half and the only way to possess the full totem is to face their fears. Surprisingly, Nxyly manages to complete the gauntlet before Kara when she has the courage to be vulnerable. Seeing her father and brother in the gauntlet is only making us more excited for when she faces them for real.  We talk the gauntlet, Lena's newfound magic, and the aftermath of last week's episode.

    Supergirl S6E12 Review – MESSAGE! - Super Tuesday Recap

    32:57

    We absolutely loved this week's episode of Supergirl but ... y'all gone get these jokes. Co-written by our own Kelly Olsen (Azie Tesfai), "Blind Spots" is Supergirl's "racial reckoning" episode focused on Kelly's fight to be seen and heard by her teammates whose focus is on giant cats and fifth dimension sized problems that create blindspots (MESSAGE!) to the very real problems that Kelly and Orlando and the other residents of the Ormfield are dealing with.  When Kelly finally breaks down and calls her brother to vent, he sends in Diggle (another Arrowverse cameo from David Ramsey, who also directed this week's episode.) as back up and Kelly and Dig bond about how their everyday problems can be overlooked by their teammates when imps and aliens are around. Although the episode is well done and manages to ride a fine line between superheroing and realism, it does tip over into preachy and prescriptive especially when Kelly talks to her white friends and it feels like she's reading straight out of White Fragility (which also gets a cameo in the show alongside Ta-Nehisi Coates' Between the World and Me).  Overall, this episode does a great job of discussing race directly without the metaphors around Kara's alienness and it's a great reminder that just because you experience some oppression, it doesn't mean you understand all oppression. I do think if Supergirl wants us to buy Kelly Olsen as a superhero in the suit, they need to stop making her an even better superhero outside of one. Listen to us discuss all of this and way more on this week's podcast.    Like what you hear?

    Supergirl S6E11 Review – Sacrifice - Super Tuesday Recap

    We asked and Supergirl immediately answered. On this week's episode "Mxy in the Middle" we check back in with Lena and the search for her mother's origins. Lena travels to Newfoundland, Canada (which is actually home to a large Irish immigrant enclave) and finds that her mom wasn't the sweet, innocent she'd come to think she was but Lena's mother also isn't the bitch the townspeople think she was. Instead, she was a witch. That's right. Lena Luthor is the daughter of a witch and it looks like Lena may have a touch of magic inside her as well. And that's going to be helpful because with Nxyly powered up and Mr. Mxyzptlk back in town, it's going to take magic to fight magic. Because she doesn't know about Nia's part in freeing Nxyly from the dream realm, Kara is blaming herself for the havoc Nxyly is bringing to National City. And while the Super Friends do everything they can to protect Mr. Mxyzptlk without sending Nxyly back to the Phantom Zone, in the end, Mr. Mxyzptlk sacrifices himself to atone for his role in Nyxly's banishment. We'll see how the rest of the season plays out but we're hoping that Nyxly can switch sides and gain the support of the Super Friends to take down her father and brother who seem like the real bad guys here.    Like what you hear?

    Supergirl S6E10 Review – Try Hard - Super Tuesday Recap

    23:09

    This week, Nia's opened a can of worms, and luckily, her mom lets her know it's not okay. After Nyxly (obviously) screws her over, Nia is reunited with her mom and finally faces the person who's been holding her back ... herself. Back in National City, Kara and the Super Friends are fighting gentrification. Even though he's out of jail, Orlando can't get Joey out of the group home until he has a steady job and housing, and his housing prospects are tanked after a tech company moves into a project that used to be designated for low-income housing. Kara is determined to use Supergirl's social media cachet to fight this city council but she makes a new enemy in Councilwoman Rankin (Kari Matchett) who was stewarding the project. While Supergirl has always walked a fine line between real-life politics and superhero tropes, this season some of the character development feels rehashed. Also ... Where. Is. Lena? Nia's story with her mother would have so much more impact opposite Lena's search for her birth mother but Katie McGrath seems to be missing in action. We discuss all that and more on this week's podcast.      Like what you hear?
