The Flyby 1/31/18 – The Incredible Shrinking Superheroes

This week on The Flyby it’s yet another series of setbacks for our Arrowverse heroes.  On The Flash, we literally had them get smaller when Cisco and Ralph got Ant-Manned by the latest meta (ironically right as the Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer dropped, so your hosts Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex will have opinions on that too.)  Arrow went back to the “will they/won’t they” well for more petty posturing between its A-Team and B-Team, and Supergirl sidelined its titular hero once again for a detour into the confounding and ridiculous plottings of Mama Luthor, just as our protagonists were on the verge of discovering one...

The Flyby 1/24/18 – Girls’ Club

This week on The Flyby, stuff happens on Arrow‘s mid-season premiere.  It’s so bland and boring at this point that your intrepid hosts, Sarjex and Cranky T-Rex, will be lucky if they remember what exactly it was that happened.  Supergirl‘s latest will be hard to forget though, what with the return of the Ghost of #Sanvers and the new Female-Only Fort Rozz requiring Kara to put together her own little league of Superfriends. On The Flash, Barry Allen continues to needlessly rot in prison so that Wally can…wait no, Wally is off the show for being terrible…so that Elongated...

The Flyby 1/17/18 – Wake Up Supergirl!

Tonight on The Flyby, the Arrowverse is back!  Supergirl was beaten into a coma before Christmas and now a Smurf has to wake her up.  As you can tell Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex will have plenty to poke fun at when it comes to makeup and costumes for this whole Legion of Superheroes thing they’re kicking the season off with. Meanwhile, The Flash spent the whole episode making Cranky go “That’s not how this works. That’s not how any of this works.” as it put Barry Allen on trial for murder. We also got the premiere of Black Lightning,...

The Flyby 1/10/18 – Creepy Cuckoos and Smurf Brains

This week on The Flyby it’s a bit of a grab bag, but Cranky T-Rex and Sarjex can start off with a new episode of The Gifted, which has officially been renewed for a second season much to their delight. Agents of SHIELD has a new episode too, one that featured some bold choices for a couple of the newer characters.  We’ll talk about how that show is chugging along. Sprinkled in between we have everything from The Last Jedi follow ups, to a Teen Titans Go! movie, to speculation about the upcoming return of the Arrowverse, so make sure...

The Flyby 1/3/18 – Justice League Review

The Flyby kicks off the new year by exorcising the last ghosts of 2017, starting with our review of Justice League. Now that Sarjex has finally had a chance to watch it, she and Cranky T-Rex can take a look at the movie that should’ve been an easy win for DC/WB and yet it turned into a box office bomb. Meanwhile, we’re all caught up on Agents of SHIELD, so we have some reviewing to do there as well. And if there’s time we’ll take a look forward at what’s to come in 2018, so tune in right here...
