The Flyby 8/8/18 – The 100 Finally Killed The Planet

This week on The Flyby, it’s time to discuss the season finale of The 100, which has been the CW’s most consistently good show since it’s now heading into season 6 without turning into a dumpster fire like all of the Arrowverse entries have at one point or another.  However this season hasn’t been without its issues, as Cranky and Sarjex have discussed before.  So tonight we’ll look at how well it wrapped things up, whether or not it has a worthy hook for another season, and what we thought about this season overall. Speaking of the Arrowverse, we have...

The Flyby 8/1/18 – The Death of Superman

This week on The Flyby, Sarjex and Cranky T-Rex tackle DC’s latest animated flick, The Death of Superman, which is yet another retelling of one of the most famous comic book stories of all time. It’s at least the second animated adaptation of the material, and the first half of a two parter, with the sequel focusing on the four heroes that attempted to take the Man of Steel’s place when he died in the comics until his eventual resurrection.  After all, when it comes to comic books nobody stays dead for long, even if at the time they weren’t in...

The Flyby 7/25/18 – Comic-Con Roundup

This week on The Flyby, Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex react to all the latest entertainment news to come out of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.  DC basically had the place to themselves, and they made the most of it, dumping trailers for Aquaman, Shazam, their new Teen Titans live-action series, and all of the various Arrowverse shows.  The trailers show varying degrees of promise, but the information we got about Supergirl‘s next season certainly stands out by helping justify our decision to abandon that one for good. Speaking of things that eat themselves, we finally got confirmation from The 100 that...

The Flyby 7/18/18 – The Dark Knight Turns 10

On this episode of The Flyby, we take a look back at what is widely considered one of if not the best comic book movie of all time, Christopher Nolan’s second Batman film The Dark Knight, which happens to be 10 years old as of today.  Of course, Cranky T-Rex still thinks it and its bookends are overrated and that it ultimately led to the downfall of the DC Cinematic Universe. When we’re not talking about how Heath Ledger’s Joker is one of the greatest villain performances of all time, we’ll take a few minutes to discuss why Octavia on The...

The Flyby 7/11/18 – Ant-Man and the Wasp

Last week on The Flyby, we took a special look back at a massive summer blockbuster, aka Independence Day: Resurgence, which was a disaster movie in every possible sense.  So this week we’re going to go even bigger…by getting really small.  That’s right, it’s our review of Ant-Man and the Wasp, which is the latest flick in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and a sequel to plain old Ant-Man. Marvel hasn’t had very many stumbles, and both Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex dug Ant-Man’s first movie for being smart enough to tell a story that didn’t hinge on the destruction of a...
