The Flyby 5/9/18 – Lena Is Smart

Though we’re still reeling from the Infinity War last week, The Flyby returns tonight to its regularly scheduled programming, with Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex reviewing all the comic book shows they can still stand to watch.  Last week Krypton got the boot, but Supergirl is still hanging on by a thread, even if yet another brainless episode threatens to take some industrial strength scissors to it.  It seems the only character on the show with two bits of grey matter to rub together is Lena Luthor, and of course all the other characters are mad at her for it....

The Flyby 5/2/18 -Avengers: Infinity War (SPOILERS!)

This week on The Flyby, Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex must face the might of Thanos, who finally got up off his duff and went to get those magic gems everyone’s been talking about for half a decade now.  That’s right Avengers: Infinity War, a movie ten years in the making, the apex of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and perhaps the most ambitious crossover event of all time, is here at last and we’re going to review it for you. In the spirit of having 30 heroes taking on one giant villain, we’ve invited our fellow Bingers Allan Bourdius and Amy Curtis...

The Flyby 4/25/18 – The Commander of Death Returns

This week on The Flyby, Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex are shaking in their boots because The 100 is back and so is the dreaded Wanheda, proving yet again that nothing can kill Clarke before she kills it first, not even a massive storm of radiation that turned pretty much the entire planet into a barren wasteland. Speaking of barren wastelands, we still have to talk about the latest from the Arrowverse, where good ideas go to die.  Kara finally went off on Mon-El in Supergirl, which is certainly a far cry from being mercy-killed like Clarke’s last boyfriend but might...

The Flyby 4/18/18 – Dinosaur Discrimination

On this episode of The Flyby, Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex express their shock at just how discriminatory the Arrowverse is to dinosaurs. This week featured not one, but two! dinosaurs that were enslaved by villains and then brutally beaten by our so-called heroes.  It started with the not-so-triumphant return of Supergirl, wherein Mon-El choked a cyborg carnosaur to death with his cape, a trick he will apparently be teaching Kara in the future.  Then over on The Flash, Ralph Dibney punched a reanimated rex back to bones.  At least their was some karmic retribution for him. Arrow stuck to resurrecting people instead...

The Flyby 4/11/18 – Performance Issues

On this episode of the The Flyby, Sarjex and Cranky T-Rex lament the pathetic impotence of the Arrowverse heroes.  None of them seem capable of producing the spark they did back when they debuted, and each episode seems to be another attempt to stall for time, even though we should be building up to a rousing climax by now. Never has this been clearer than with The Flash’s return this week, as this latest episode was another in a long line of starts and stops.  Barry gets all puffed up at Ralph only to be instantly deflated by a gender-swapped meta with a silly...
