Star Trek: Discovery S2E9 Review: “Project Daedalus”

Star Trek: Discovery

Last week’s episode was a hard one to follow, but this week we’ve got a killer half-robutt, Spock ruining Burnham’s 3-D chess set, and a bunch of suspicious space mines. Also, Scott chides Jason for being speciesist, and Jason has more wacky plot theories.

Supergirl S4E13 Review: “What’s So Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way?”

Supergirl

Under discussion this week:

  • Lena working with the DEO, but invalidating the apparent reason for the breakup;
  • Nia training with brainy… the man-splaining stopped, and hopefully the boring fights will too;
  • The Elite forming and causing trouble;
  • The President sounding strangely reasonable in comparison to Supergirl;
  • J’onn questioning his pacifism for doylist reasons; and,
  • Agent Liberty getting more power and more crazed.

Star Trek: Discovery S2E8 Review: “If Memory Serves”

Star Trek: Discovery

Previously, on Star Trek… “Discovery” goes where “Star Trek” hasn’t been in more than 50 years, as Burnham returns Spock to Talos IV to cure his insanity and get a sense of what is going on with the Red Angel. We discuss singing plants, creepy telepaths, Vina’s reunion with Pike, the super-awkward second life of Dr. Culber, and the dangers of mind melding with time travelers!

Arrow S7E14 Review: “Brothers & Sisters”

Arrow

After a brief hiatus, the Speedy Arrowcast is back. This week, things are jam-packed, but we’ve got questions. What’s the deal with the Diggle lineage? How do authorized vigilantes work, exactly? How come people feel the need to explain the feelings we just saw them have? Plus, we know we didn’t start the fire, but who did? And, in a brief Superhero Sweep, Guy discusses his personal superhero, and we talk Spider-Verse and Captain Marvel anticipation.

Star Trek: Discovery S2E7 Review: “Light and Shadows”

Star Trek: Discovery

Vulcan Hello returns, but one of our favorite recurring segments ends when we finally find who we’ve been looking for! Plus, get ready for some frickin’ time rifts, Sarek’s sweet shuttlecraft pad, Michelle Yeoh’s kicks, and a shocking final revelation. Aleen Simms joins us to break down this week’s episode while we sit in the corner and mumble passages from “Alice in Wonderland”.

Star Trek: Discovery S2E6 review: “The Sound of Thunder”

Star Trek: Discovery

The hovering murder cylinder is on the other foot now, Ba’ul! In this episode we explore Saru’s new perspective on the Prime Directive, Pike’s measured responses to creepy voice-only hails, and the transformation of the Red Murderball into something that’s posthumously useful! Also, we get a closer look at the Red Angel (Jason’s feeling confident), and we have to debate whether the trailer for next week’s episode fits our Spotting Spock criteria.

Daredevil S3E7 Review: “Aftermath”

Daredevil

Here is the episode of experimentation you have been waiting for. Golden Tony steps in to Hell’s Kitchen cold as ice. Tony agreed not watch any episodes of season 3, mostly because he is behind on some of his Marvel TV and the guy is just busy. The experiment was not without flaws, but the results should be on the record for your listening satisfaction. Moze was worried that “Aftermath” could be a furniture moving episode and become a flatline of interest for Tony. Was the hypothesis correct? Let us listen together and see.

Star Trek: Discovery S2E5 Review: “Saints of Imperfection”

Star Trek: Discovery

This week Section 31 collides with the Discovery, and the Discovery collides with the mycelial network. A lost soul is found! Jason does a victory lap at the mention of tachyons! And still no Spock.

Arrow S7E13 Review: “Star City Slayer”

Arrow

This week, a MURDERER is afoot in Star City. The Speedy Arrowcast assembles its crack team of newly deputized vigilantes to track down important topics like who the hell uses a darkroom anymore, unexplained murderer monikers, Schrödinger’s children, multiple unexpected bombshells including a high-profile departure, and how to earn a good surprise reveal. (Basically, it’s jam-packed and you don’t want to miss it!) Plus, in Superhero Sweep we discuss a quartet of new animated shows coming from Disney and Hulu.

Arrow S7E12 Review: “Emerald Archer”

Arrow

This week on the Speedy Arrowcast, we’re filming a documentary! It’s getting into all the dark corners and pulling out important topics like why you should always go for the cost-effective vigilante costume, why it’s always nice to see old friends, and of course, foreign affairs from the early 1900s. Plus an abbreviated Superhero Sweep where we talk Avengers: Endgame conspiracy theories and Batwoman casting.
