Arrow S8E9: “Green Arrow and the Canaries”

‘Tis the season for backdoor pilots, so we take a jaunt to Star City 2040 to visit with Green Arrow and the Canaries. We discuss post-Crisis implications, the importance of the “two moms” anchor dynamic, and how glad we are to finally see a truck heist. Over on our Letters Page, we prognosticate the next time Oliver Queen might grace our screens. And, of course, we encourage you to support this year’s member special where we create superhero cocktails.

Just one more week before our Lian Yu t-shirt becomes obsolete. Presumably?

Crisis on Infinite Earths, Episodes 4-5

Worlds lived, worlds died. The podcast will never be the same.

We discuss the conclusion of the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover: the secret cameo we loved, the significance of catering budgets, and the returns that we’ve all been waiting for. Plus, why dementors have to use doors.

Is this the last time we’ll see Purgatory? Maybe, but you can still buy a T-shirt!

More Uncle Ben, Less Batman

With a week to remain before the finale of Crisis on Infinite Earths, the Biff! team reassembles to discuss a handful of topics, including a (mostly spoiler-free) look at Epix’s Pennyworth series (and our pitch for The Butlers), how to end a giant saga, and why comedies are sometimes better at addressing hard issues than dramas. Plus, we answer several very important letters from our reading public, including what we’re looking forward to in 2020.

It’s never too late to buy a T-shirt!

Giant-Size Superhero Sweep #2

As we prepare for our winter hiatus, the Super Squad is back with another Giant-Size Superhero Sweep episode. We kick off by discussing the Wonder Woman 1984 trailer, then discuss the divergence of DC and Marvel’s approaches to telling stories in their cinematic universes. Then, it’s a brief foray into the upcoming Stargirl show, and the end of the the Marvel Television universe. Finally, a thought-provoking letter about real-life superheroes.

The holidays are upon us—consider buying a t-shirt for a loved one!

Crisis on Infinite Earths, Episodes 1-3

The event more than a year in making has arrived. Will the Flash vanish? Will Oliver Queen bite the dust? What conspiracies can we find in this drawer? Our three paragons take on DC’s ultimate crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths, and discuss the best fan service, how sometimes plots make no sense, and what might be the ultimate impact on the world formerly known as the Arrowverse.

Anybody know what Mandarin for “Purgatory” is? T-shirt!

Arrow S8E7: “Purgatory”

And so it ends back where it begins. On this week’s episode of Arrow we’re going back to an island, but not for five years. We discuss Ollie channeling his whiny younger self, why you should always keep DNA samples of your cast, and what the heck is up with these ghosts? Then in our Superhero Sweep segment we try to figure out what the fallout from Crisis on Infinite Earths might be and discuss the newly released Black Widow trailer. Finally, our Letters Page addresses some lingering Arrow questions.

This Lian Yu shirt sells itself this week.

Arrow S8E6: “Reset”

This week’s episode of Arrow throws us for a loop—a time loop. We talk about the lessons Ollie needs to learn before Crisis, the return of another much-missed face, and a fitting goodbye for both the characters and for us. Then, in our Superhero Sweep segment, we discuss the “problem” with Superman and talk very generally about the trailer for Birds of Prey and Watchmen. Finally, our Letters Page takes us into the realm of sports, and somehow nobody ever mentions Sportsmaster. What’s up with that?

How do you dress in a time loop? In a suit? In a suit suit? Or in a spiffy t-shirt?

Arrow S8E5: “Prochnost”

What would the final season of Arrow be without a trip to Russia, that magical land where Oliver Queen did some Very Bad Things. And this time, bring the kids! We discuss a fitting cap for our favorite ex-gangster, possible motivations for Lyla’s mission for the Monitor, and why branding matters with your weapons. Then, in our Superhero Sweep segment, we talk briefly about Batwoman before we continue gearing up for Crisis on Infinite Earths, and in the Letters Page we’ve got lightning round, superhero shows for Apple TV+, and supervillain identities—oh my!

Need that special something to wear when you’re in a underground cage match in Russia? Have we got the shirt for you!

Arrow S8E4: “Present Tense”

We’re going BACK…to the present this week, as Arrow smushes together some disparate plotlines and this season finally starts to get in gear. We discuss standout scenes, conspiracy theories about the Monitor, and how you get cell phone reception in the past. Plus, have none of these people ever seen a time travel movie? Then, in our Superhero Sweep segment, it’s hurray for some sequels and speculation about the future of the MCU. Finally, in our Letters Page, we field an offspring-related query.

What does one wear to blend in when thrown 20 years into the past? A t-shirt, naturally.

Arrow S8E3: “Leap of Faith”

Our team of assassins turned heroes returns this week with episode 3 of Arrow’s swan song season. We talk about when an Indiana Jones homage doesn’t quite land, the characters that we wish were around this week, confusing motives from an inscrutable being, and a…surprisingly promising ending? Then, in our Superhero Sweep segment, we speculate about the announcement of a Superman & Lois show in development and whether the Arrowverse can support yet another super-show, plus rumors of a Green Lantern show over on HBO Max Awesome Supreme. Finally, in the Letters Page, we speculate about one thing that could improve a show. And Guy and John take new jobs in a surprising location.

Want to blend in when you join all the other first-year assassins? Consider a spiffy shirt.

Arrow S8E2: “Welcome to Hong Kong”

The Greatest Hits of Arrow continue as we return to the scene of Season 3: Hong Kong. We discuss the callbacks that we appreciated, emotional conversations with some weight, and letting a spinoff stand on its own two feet. Plus, the twist that we sort of saw coming? Then, in our Superhero Sweep segment, we continue our discussion of Batwoman, and mull over Jeph Loeb’s departure as Marvel TV czar. Finally, in our Letters Page, we choose the superpowers that we’ve always wanted.

Have you been stuck on an island for as much as a decade? Time for a new shirt.
