The Flyby 06/27/18 – We’re Back!

Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex return from a brief hiatus for a brand new episode of The Flyby, featuring our reactions to the last few episodes of Supergirl that we had to suffer through in the interim.  Mostly it’ll be wrapping the show up so that it never needs to be discussed again, with any luck anyway. Plus The 100 continues on chugging along, so there’s some of that to chat about, though Sarjex is starting to find the pacing of that show a little sluggish. And as a bonus, we’ll talk about The Incredibles 2, a sequel over a decade...

The Flyby 06/06/18 – Dumpster Fire

Well this week on The Flyby, the dumpster fire that is Supergirl continues to burn out of control.  Magically our heroes defeat Reign in the first 10 minutes, and then Kara decides to head on back to the last remaining chunk of Krypton to live for a while.  Why nobody seems to want to evacuate that place to a habitable planet on which they’ll have superpowers, we don’t know, mainly because the show doesn’t take the time to explain.  Probably because they used that time for another special edition of Guardian Sez.  This time James Olsen wants to talk to you...

The Flyby 5/30/18 – You Can Never Go Home Again

Well as much as we wanted to talk Deadpool 2 this week on The Flyby, unfortunately real life prevented Sarjex from getting to see it yet.  So instead we’ll have to talk about the latest episode of Supergirl.  If that sounds like we consider it a punishment, well that should tell you everything you need to know about how we feel about the show now. This particular episode of Supergirl once again relegated what should have been a huge character story for Kara to the background in favor of Crack Secret Agent and Surrogate Mom-wannabe Alex Danvers, who spent the episode trying...

The Flyby 5/23/18 – Beginning of the Ends

We’ve finally made it, Flyby fans. This week we have at last arrived at the season finales for Arrow, The Flash, and Agents of SHIELD, and boy did they run the gamut.  Starting with the least painful, SHIELD gave us a rather solid finale that would’ve made for a perfectly fitting end to the show had it not been renewed for another limited run next summer.  Cranky T-Rex was bummed not to get the big Infinity War tie-in, but overall he and Sarjex will have plenty of good things to say about it. Arrow, on the other hand, was a rather mixed bag. ...

The Flyby 5/16/18- The Flash Breaks Everything

This week on The Flyby, we once again get to see how Arrowverse writers give no thought to the consequences of the things they allow their characters to do.  Of all the shows, none have been so guilty as The Flash, which spent every season trying to figure out how Barry could get fast enough to deal with a faster speedster to the point that he can now run to China and back in the space of a camera sweep.  Then he learns to enter “Flash time” where he can live out a whole episode inside a matter of heartbeats.  With this latest...
