Arrow S7E3-4 Review: “Crossing Lines/Level Two”


It’s a two-fer this week, as our hearty band of inmates discusses the most recent pair of Arrow episodes. Our important discussion topics include why lying is bad (especially between spouses), never trusting the person who tells you to trust no one, a Jeffrey Wright-esque performance, and why you should definitely avoid recursive algorithms. Plus, in this week’s Superhero Sweep segment, a take on the recent episode focusing on the villain from this season of Supergirl.

Supergirl S4E03 Review: “Man of Steel”


The DEO doesn’t understand what an atmosphere is. Meanwhile, we get a back story for how Agent Liberty became radicalized. Does the explanation work? We’ll leave it to you to decide, but we still applaud the effort to make the villain compelling.

Doctor Who S11E4 review: “Arachnids in the UK”

Doctor Who

I am an arachnid
I am in Graham’s attic
Don’t know what I want
Don’t know why I’m big
I want to web the passerby

Dude! There was a new episode of “Doctor Who” with lots of great character stuff, a surprisingly funny appearance by Chris Noth, and a whole lot of spiders. Also, I call people “dude” now.
