The Flyby 11/22/17 – Thankful for Good Episodes

The Flyby celebrates this year’s Thanksgiving with Sarjex and Cranky T-Rex thanking their lucky stars that Supergirl, The Flash, and Arrow all more or less had enjoyable episodes this week, though as usual they weren’t without problems.  Certainly it’ll be difficult for Supergirl to transition into whacky cross-over hijinks next week with Nazi Superheroes from Earth X.  But hey we got an origin story for The Flash‘s season-long foe, The Thinker, and more Slade Wilson being a badass over on Arrow. The Gifted continues to deliver as well, fleshing out this X-men universe even further and delivering a pretty good rendition of the old strained-relationship-with-my-father...

The Flyby 11/15/17 – The Flash Offends My People

On this episode of The Flyby, Cranky T-Rex expresses his disgust for The Flash desecrating the corpse of one of his fellows for the amusement of others.  Meanwhile both he and Sarjex are happy Supergirl managed to not suck for a third week in a row, and Slade Wilson returns to Arrow with a vengeance. On the other side of the comic book TV show divide, relationship drama rules the day in this week’s episode of The Gifted, and the Inhumans has reached the end of its first (and probably last) season.  Is it good riddance or should it get another chance?  We’ll...

The Flyby 11/8/17 – Sayonara Sanvers, Hashtag Feminism, Arrowverse Week 5

On this episode of The Flyby, Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex celebrate the end of the #Sanvers romance that has plagued Supergirl for almost a season and a half now.  With a couple of decent episodes under its belt now, perhaps we’ll look back on the end of Sanvers as a Riker’s Beard moment that heralded a new, better direction for Supergirl? Then again maybe the Supergirl writers were just busy working on The Flash instead, which seemed desperate to cram the phrase “hashtag feminism” into this week’s episode as many times as possible.  Or perhaps they transferred over to Arrow so that they could give...

The Flyby 11/1/17 – Praise Rao! Arrowverse Week 4

On this episode of The Flyby, we are into week four of the new seasons of the #Arrowverse, and Rao damn it, we actually got an episode of Supergirl that wasn’t extremely painful!  Will it arrest the downward plunge Supergirl‘s been on or is it just a cosmic accident? Sarjex and Cranky T-Rex will talk about that and what’s happening in the rest of the Arrow universe, including some hilarious cameos on The Flash and the return of #Olicity to Arrow. Of course as always we also have episodes of The Gifted, Inhumans, and The Orville to round out the show...

The Flyby 10/25/17 – Arrowverse Week 3

On this episode of The Flyby, we are into the third week of the new seasons of the #Arrowverse, and the various shows are off to a pretty rocky start.  As the image above implies, Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex will have more ranting to do about how Supergirl has become a tertiary character on her own show.  Some of the other CW writers might’ve heard their complaints though, since it seems like Oliver may finally pick between being the Green Arrow and the mayor, while Wally West appears to be departing from The Flash after realizing how useless he is. Over on Fox, The Gifted keeps proving itself better than...
