The Flyby 12/13/17 – Olicity, It’s Cold Inside

This week on The Flyby, the rest of the mid-season finales are here at last, with varying results.  Arrow saw the full terrible form of Olicity rear its ugly head, much to the disappointment of both Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex, and that was before the forced drama of breaking up the team again started. The Gifted fared much better however, and we will no doubt once again gush about how this show seems to do everything the right way while the CW shows continue to go the wrong direction. The Orville had a much shorter run making what would normally...

The Flyby 12/6/17 – SHIELD Goes to Space

On tonight’s episode of The Flyby, just as all the other shows are heading into hibernation for the winter, Agents of SHIELD‘s new season debuts with the gang finding themselves in space. In the future.  Will wonders never cease? Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex will run down their impressions on SHIELD‘s premiere and the direction the show appears to be headed this year. Meanwhile Supergirl and The Flash delivered the first round of mid-season finales ahead of the aforementioned Christmas break, and both of them decided Christmas cheer was not in order this year as their respective holidays got marred by supervillains...

The Flyby 11/29/17 – Relationship Crisis on Earth-X

On tonight’s episode of The Flyby, relationship drama abounds even as super Nazis invade the Arrowverse!  That’s right the long-awaited epic 4-part crossover of Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow has arrived at last, and Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex have plenty to say about this Crisis on Earth-X, like why it’s idiotic to let your personal relationship problems get in the way of fighting off an invasion from another dimension and how literal Nazis are the laziest possible choice for villains. Then as if to swoop in and steal DC’s thunder, Marvel gave us a huge gift...

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...
