Arrow S5E17 Review: “Kapiushon”

To Russia, comrades! This week’s flashback-heavy episode follows past Oliver carrying out his vendetta against Kovar, while in the present he is tormented by Prometheus. We discuss the troubling portrayal of torture, the weird casual nature of Sarin gas, and why it’s probably not a good idea to trust a strange woman who promises to help you with your inner monster.

The second season of Voltron on Netflix dropped on Netflix in January. Last time around our panel was smitten with the re-envisioning of the ’80s anime adaptation.

Legends of Tomorrow: Failure Analysis

So we’re breaking up with “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.” At least for now. In this final scheduled episode we discuss the problems with the show and why we’ll keep watching it, but probably while we’re also checking our e-mail and folding our laundry.

Doctor Who S9E12 review: “Hell Bent”

We’re back with the final Doctor Who Flashcast of the season! Everything we’ve been building to for the last 11 weeks has led to this. The Doctor has a bone to pick with the Time Lords. Who is the Hybrid? Familiar diners with familiar waitresses! We flail our arms and get super nerdy as we dissect the finale and the season as a whole with a special half-Scottish panel, if you count Space Glasgow.

Arrow S4E8 review: “Legends of Yesterday”

Crossover week continues as special guests Jason Snell and Tony Sindelar join Guy and John for a discussion of part two of this week’s Flash-Arrow crossover event. How much do we not like Hawkguy?

Doctor Who S9E8 review: “The Zygon Inversion”

This week’s “Doctor Who” culminates a plot not just from last week, but from the 50th anniversary episode, “Day of the Doctor.” Still, the most important thing in it may be Peter Capaldi’s one-man show, which doubles as a mission statement for The Doctor. And while Clara isn’t in it much, Jenna Coleman does a great turn as her Zygon duplicate. Plus, more Osgood!

Game of Thrones S5E10 review: “Mother’s Mercy”

It’s the season finale of “Game of Thrones!” So of course, nothing much happens in this episode. Except for suicides, zombie zingers, off-screen massacres, admissions of magic murder, death by long fall, death by multiple stab wounds, death by poison, the meeting of the Friends of Danerys Club, teenage dragons, a walk of shame—er, atonement, and more death by multiple stab wounds! But other than that, uneventful. We break it all down one last time.

77

Game of Thrones S5E7 review: “The Gift”

This week’s episode of “Game of Thrones” wasn’t as grim as last week’s, but we still have issues, and they’re all in this plus-sized episode.

First, we take up the larger discussion of the rape at the end of last week’s episode and the resulting controversy among viewers. Then we dive into this week’s installment, which features bad stuff in the north, unexpected deaths and direwolves, and Stannis showing surprising backbone. Plus we break down the dangers of funding religious extremists, ponder if the High Sparrow is the Lenin of his time, reference A Chorus Line and Fiddler on the Roof, talk about the three dominant religions of Westeros, and much more.


76

Daredevil Rewind: Episodes 10-12

75

Game of Thrones S5E6 review: “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken”

Westeros got even darker and bleaker than usual this week. But Monty and Jason soldier on, unbowed and unbent but maybe a little bit broken. We take stock of our two pairs of road-buddy movie adventurers, ponder why all the dead bodies need to be washed, muse about Littlefinger’s grand plan, welcome back Diana Rigg, admire Myrcella’s awesome Spring break in Dorne, and remind you that Ramsay Bolton is never not creepy. Never, ever, ever.


74

Those kinds of things Bring Guy, Merlin and Moze to a fever pitch. Come raise your glass to the show that has no right to be this good.

Game of Thrones S5E4 review: “Sons of the Harpy”

Brian and Jason meet in person and watch an episode, and are joined in commentary by Dan Moren and Tony Sindelar! Lots of stories about Rhaegar Targaryen in this episode, and Jason and Dan share one of the most commonly held theories about Rhaegar and Lyanna Stark and the mystery of their relationship. It’s not a spoiler, just (common) speculation, so don’t freak out! Also lots of stabbing and horses and masks and mismatched buddies, many of them in boats.

Game of Thrones S5E3 review: “High Sparrow”

This week, themes of religion dominated “Game of Thrones”, along with a bunch of clever transitions between different viewpoints. Plus, mad scientists—or is it mad maesters? Beheadings! Daenerys’s unique crossover appeal! And much more.

Game of Thrones S5E2 review: “The House of Black and White”

Marjorie plays the game of thrones for keeps! Cersei’s kissin’ cousin wears a burlap sack for a shirt! Tyrion eats, drinks, and poops in a box!

The Flash S1E13 Review: “The Nuclear Man”

Barry struggled to vibrate things in a not-too-fast way with Linda, the Lab rats get hot an bothered with Firestorm’s composition and Joe & Sisco use the power of a mirror to sleuth out the Perp(s) at Barry’s Mom’s murder. Seems like a lot but Lisa, Tony and Moze see it differently.

Doctor Who S8E12 review: “Death in Heaven”

Well, here we are at the end of the “Doctor Who” season. In this finale we got a lot of technical and plot stuff that doesn’t survive a whole lot of logic, but the emotional and character beats are truthful and the season’s overarching themes (Doctor as commander of soldiers, “Am I a good man?”, Clara as Doctor-in-training, and the lies—oh, all the lies) are brought home strongly. How does it all fit together? Why should we never trust a hug? And what does Nick Frost have to do with it all? Let’s break it all down one final time before the fat man sings and we have to wait until Christmas to see Peter Capaldi’s eyebrows again.

Doctor Who S8E10 review: “In the Forest of the Night”

The forest is deep and dark and full of wolves. Join Jason and Glenn to talk about Frank Cottrell-Boyce’s first “Doctor Who” story. If there’s no Lorax, who will speak for the trees? We talk about the Doctor’s relationship to Earth, Clara’s strange decisions about how to protect her young charges, Jason rants about the continued appearances of Missy and how they don’t add up to a story arc, and in the end we give a big fat raspberry to the episode’s final scene. It was quite a roller coaster this week.

Doctor Who S8E9 review: “Flatline”

It’s bigger on the inside, now more than ever! It’s time to talk about “Flatline,” an episode that starts out like it’s going to be funny and ends up being anything but. Will Clara’s lies catch up with her? What does the Doctor really think of Clara playing his role? Does he even want to play it himself? (The answer seems to be yes, if someone else will play the role of the monster.) Listen as Jason breaks it down with his very special guest, his wife Lauren!

Doctor Who S8E6 review: “The Caretaker”

The Doctor takes a job at Coal Hill School in order to stop a clicky-clacky robot who wants to shoot people full of laser beams. But that’s really beside the point in an episode that’s all about dialogue, character, and the relationships that the Doctor, Clara, and Danny Pink have. We break down the latest episode of “Doctor Who,” “The Caretaker,” and also ponder Matt Smith lookalikes, the Doctor as an officer and a Time Lord, and Courtney Woods, Disruptive Influence.

Also, we wonder about vents, praise the lighting technicians at the bank, and discuss whether looking into your own eyes is as bad as it’s made out to be.

Sons of Anarchy S7E2 review: “Toil and Till”

We examine what may have been the slowest episode of SOA to date. Exactly how many people do you have to kill before you qualify as a mass murderer? Is it the number of people or is it the time period in which you do the killing? We’re asking because this just might be the episode where Jax crossed over to mass-murderer status.

Now that the Sons have already killed their way through Americans, Mexicans, Russians, Italians and Irish people, they’re going out for Chinese. If there is a “Kill A Small World” ride at Mirrorverse Disney, the Sons are clearly lining up for its Fast Pass.

Doctor Who S8E4 review: “Listen”

Don’t blink! Don’t breathe! But do listen to this episode, where we break down Steven Moffat’s “Listen,” a standalone episode with some surprising connections to Doctor Who history. We identify a possible theme for this season’s episodes, separate from the story arc. Jason recalls previous Steven Moffat series. And Danny Pink and The Doctor both appreciate the importance of a toy soldier who doesn’t carry a gun.

Game of Thrones S4E10 review: “The Children”

Happy Father’s Day, Tywin Lannister! Erstwhile co-host Brian Hamilton joins Monty and Jason to talk about this final episode of “Game of Thrones” season 4, where there are a whole lot of familial relationships to consider. We discuss Jon’s final parting with Ygritte, the Jamie-Cersei-Tyrion sibling triangle, the Arya-Brienne-Hound swordy triangle (sorry, Podrick), those flame-throwing “children” in the snow with Bran, and of course Tyrion’s attempt to seriously resolve his daddy issues. Plus, hey! Skeletons! We’ve packed it all in this double-sized episode, along with our final thoughts on the season as a whole.


17

Game of Thrones S4E9 review: “The Watchers on the Wall”

This week, one setting! One massive battle! Death, blood, giants, snow, wildings, and Jon Snow! Monty and Jason talk about the failed institution of the Night’s Watch, which seems odd since many of them were very brave and they didn’t all die. But still, you’ve got to admit, the organization has seen better days. Also, who knew that Castle Black had a Panic Room?


16

Game of Thrones S4E8 review: “The Mountain and the Viper”

There’s a lot of hopping around in this episode, but with a couple of possible exceptions, it’s all good. In the far east, a eunuch and a topless handmaiden meet creepy, and a really old pardon causes serious problems for Jorah. At the Wall, we learn that Molestown is one classy place, and Sam feels extra bad about leaving Gilly there. In the North, there’s a touching family moment under a Flayed Man banner that gives us even more name confusion than usual for Westeros. Sansa becomes a real woman by committing perjury. Arya gets a belly laugh. Tyrion tells a very perplexing story involving beetles to Jaime. And finally, the most Inigo Montoyaesque trial-by-combat scene possible.


15

Game of Thrones S4E7 review: “Mockingbird”

This episode feels more like the regular episodes of past seasons — neither a full-blown “event” episode, nor a pure “table setting” episode. Instead, we get lots of great scenes with great sets of characters, including Arya and the Hound, Brienne and Podrick, and Tyrion and a succession of visitors. Plus, much more of Sansa and Littlefinger in Crazytown Aerie and a surprise appearance by Westeros’ finest pie maker! We’re not sure if there’s an actual mockingbird, though.

(Thanks to listeners for pointing out that the Mockingbird is Littlefinger’s personal crest.)


14

Game of Thrones S4E6 review: “The Laws of Gods and Men”

Courtroom drama comes to Westeros, as Daenerys issues decrees in Meereen and Tyrion’s regicide trial begins. There are some brief detours to Braavos for Bank Loan Drama and the Dreadfort for Failed Rescue Drama, but it’s Tyrion’s trial that dominates the episode. Monty Ashley and Brian Hamilton render their judgements. Maybe it should be “The Laws of Gods and Men and Monty and Brian.” (No, it probably shouldn’t)


13

Game of Thrones S4E5 review: “First of His Name”

Jon nearly meets up with Bran! Daenerys strongly considers coming to Westeros before deciding to stay in Meereen! Most of the other people never even come close to seeing each other, but it’s still more crossover than most episodes get. As Tommen becomes King of Westeros, Monty Ashley and Brian Hamilton review an episode that contains the least secretive co-conspirator ever.


12

Game of Thrones S4E4 review: “Oathkeeper”

This episode of “Game of Thrones” had it all: prisons, swords, white walkers, and people drinking from skulls. That’s all of the things, right? Monty Ashley and Brian Hamilton break down the fourth episode of season four as they check in on Daenerys’s shockingly efficient methods for capturing cities, Jaime Lannister’s shifting allegiances, and the aforementioned skull-drinking.


11

Game of Thrones S4E3 review: “Breaker of Chains”

After the shocking death scenes of last week, this week “Game of Thrones” settled down a bit. Monty Ashley and Jason Snell talk you through episode three, including Stannis Baratheon’s nifty table and the cold cunning of Tywin Lannister and Olenna Tyrell. Plus, how can you make incest even ickier? By doing it in a church next to the dead body of your child! Yeah, that’s the spirit, Lannisters!


10

Game of Thrones S4E2: “The Lion and the Rose”

Monty Ashley and Jason Snell talk about episode two of “Game of Thrones” season 4. Let’s be honest, there’s only one scene here that everyone will be talking about after viewing: The scene where Melisandre talks to Stannis’s daughter about religion.

Oh, also Joffrey gets married and other stuff happens. He’s a bit of a bridezilla.

Game of Thrones S4E1: “Two Swords”

Monty Ashley and Jason Snell talk about the “Game of Thrones” season 4 premiere. We count swords, praise Natalie Dormer, and generally try to remember exactly who is who and what they’re doing now that we’re back at the start of a new season. Also, we complain about the mixing of chicken-related metaphors.

TeeVee Podcast Pilot

Let the bandwidth charges begin! TeeVee’s inaugural podcast is just as shaky and uncomfortable as any pilot episode. It stars Philip Michaels, Lisa Schmeiser, and Jason Snell — one of whom will likely be replaced by Heather Locklear if the podcast gets picked up as a series.

This episode’s topics include: “Miami Vice” and other TV shows destined to be lousy movies; Steve Carell reads TV critics the collected works of Pete Ko; Vidiots share beefs about “Monk,” “Rock Star,” and “Without a Trace”; ways to improve “Scrubs.”
