The Flyby 10/18/17 – Arrow Gets Off The Island, Again

On this episode of The Flyby, Green Arrow finally caught up to the rest of the so-called Arrowverse last Thursday with his own season premiere.  That puts Arrow into season 6, coming off what Sarjex and Cranky T-Rex agreed was a very solid season 5 finale.  Tonight they’ll talk about whether or not their predictions from that cliffhanger came true, and of course whether or not season 6 has capitalized on it. Meanwhile, Supergirl and The Flash have made it to episode 2 of their new seasons, so we’ll see if they’ve improved any from last week’s less than thrilling...

The Flyby 10/11/17 – Supergirl and The Flash Return!

On this episode of The Flyby, we get back to our normal routine as the Arrowverse shows on the CW are back!  As of tonight’s show, we’ve gotten season premieres for Supergirl and The Flash, so Sarjex and Cranky T-Rex will happily run down their thoughts on both season openers.  Both our hosts lamented Supergirl‘s downward spiral through most of last season, culminating in a finale that was less than thrilling, so no doubt much of that discussion will involve analyzing if this gets Supergirl back in the sky. As for The Flash, it ended last season in a pretty good place...

The Flyby 10/4/17 – Inhumans, The Gifted Premieres

On this episode of The Flyby, we get back to talking about superheroes as the fall TV season gets into full swing with premieres up the ying yang.  From Marvel and ABC we got the start of Inhumans, which is sort of a spinoff of Agents of SHIELD but not really, and over on Fox, the X-men are back, kind of, thanks to The Gifted, which gives us a look at some mutants whose names don’t end in -verine for a change. Sarjex and Cranky T-Rex have seen them both, so they can decide who has the better “people with powers”...

The Flyby 9/27/17 – Star Trek: Discovery Premieres

On this episode of The Flyby, we’re finally introduced to the official new Star Trek TV series from CBS.  Both Sarjex and Cranky T-Rex have expressed serious concerns about Star Trek: Discovery, whether it was its long-reported production problems, the ugly Klingons from the trailers, or the decision to put most of the series behind a paywall on CBS All Access instead of on the network proper.  Now that they finally got a chance to see what CBS has actually created, they can talk about whether those concerns were justified or their expectations exceeded. Meanwhile, Seth MacFarlane’s Star-Trek-but-not-really series, The...

The Flyby 9/20/17 – The Orville Launches

On this episode of The Flyby, we have a deep space encounter with Seth MacFarlane’s new show, The Orville.  Coming off last week’s discussion of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Sarjex and Cranky T-Rex were eager to see whether this part parody, part homage to Star Trek could succeed in filling the need that it appears the actual new Star Trek series, Star Trek: Discovery, will not.  With two episodes of The Orville now under their belts, they’ll talk about their first impressions of the show, the ship, and the man running it. So don’t forget to tune in at 10 PM ET...
