The 42cast Episode 42: Reign of the Worldkillers

Sometimes just reading Geek Stranger isn’t enough. Sometimes you just have to listen… and where can you listen to me geek out with fellow nerds about the unbeatable and ancient Kryptonian martial art of Cape Twirling National City’s absolutely best time management expert? Bonus points if you can tell me if it’s Kara or Alex!:

In its 3rd year, Supergirl was fraught with problems. The showrunner was fired, and the show suffered from production delays. In this episode we look back at the season and talk about what worked and what didn’t. We’ll talk about how the show has changed and how we think that it should stay the same. We also discuss the character relationships and how they’ve developed from the beginning of the series before making our predictions for season 4. We’ll also talk about how the Worldkillers stack up against Kara’s foes from seasons past.

The 42cast Episode 41: By Your Powers Combined

Sometimes just reading Geek Stranger isn’t enough. Sometimes you just have to listen… and where can you listen to me geek out with fellow nerds about capitalism being the true savior of the universe the rag tag band of Berlanti misfits still making a mess of time and, lets be honest, our feelings? It’s the guilty pleasure you aren’t in the least bit guilty about!:

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow became the underdog of the Berlanti universe. Coming out of a season 1 panned by critics and fans, Legends gained more solid footing in its second season. Now, we assemble a cast to discuss season 3 of the series. We talk about the major shakeups to the cast, how permanent we think they are, and what it means for the series overall. We talk about a new team up of villains and whether they were able to hold interest better than the Legion of Doom. We also discuss how a plush toy may change the entire face of Berlanti television and eat a hole in our wallets before discovering that no one on the cast knows who Captain Planet is. It’s only on this year-ending episode of The 42cast.

The 42cast Episode 40: Queen’s Gambit

Sometimes just reading Geek Stranger isn’t enough. Sometimes you just have to listen… and where can you listen to me geek out with fellow nerds about the CW show that seems to have more storylines arrows in the quiver than targets to hit? Proudly sponsored by Big Belly Burger for 14 years straight!:

Oliver Queen’s five year arc came to a close last year as the flashbacks to Lian Yu wrapped up just as Oliver finally made peace with his past. This week we delve deep into season 6 of Arrow to see how the series fared under its new direction. We talk about the new and returning characters, the DCCW’s Civil War, how much we want to see Slade again, and how Diaz stacks up against Chase. As usual, we discuss our hopes for next season and do our annual Arrow death pool. We also take Five to discuss just why Solo: A Star Wars Story performed lower than expected.

The 42cast Episode 39: Flashes of Insight

Sometimes just reading Geek Stranger isn’t enough. Sometimes you just have to listen… and where can you listen to me geek out with fellow nerds about the guy who may actually finally for the first time really be the Fastest Man Alive? Sit back and try to contain your disappointment that Savitar isn’t coming back!:

Season 4 of the Flash raced off our TV screens last May, and The 42cast now looks back at that season and talks about the changes that the show went through. We talk about how DeVoe stacks up as a villain, how Wally was robbed, and why Ralph Dibny is the best thing to happen to the show in a long time. We also talk about characters who’s plot threads are dropped, do a look ahead at season 5, and discuss why we love Tom Cavanaugh. For our five-minute contoversy this week we discuss Disney’s firing of James Gunn.

The 42cast Episode 23: Fast Forward

Sometimes just reading Geek Stranger isn’t enough. Sometimes you just have to listen… and where can you listen to me geek out with fellow nerds about the (sometimes) Fastest Man Alive? Come along as we run our mouths about Central City’s team of Speedsters and their shiny adversary from Season 3. Yeah, it’s a bit late, but blame Barry for that. I mean, he’s a time travelling speedster, but he can be an awful procrastinator at times:

Running for the finish line on our review of the DC TV series on the CW, we discuss season 3 of The Flash. This season had some surprising twists and turns that left fandom feeling a little shaky. This week we talk about the storylines, how we felt about them, and what we feel like this means for season 4.

The 42cast Episode 22: Jumping the Network

Sometimes just reading Geek Stranger isn’t enough. Sometimes you just have to listen… and where can you listen to me geek out with fellow nerds about the Girl of Steel? Come along as we fly deep into National City, which looks an awful lot like LA from a distance, but Vancouver when you get really, really close, but never ever looks like Smallville, except when it does:

This week we take a look at Supergirl’s sophmore season. The series had a surprising rescue when CBS declined to renew it for a second season and the CW decided to pick it up. The new showrunners decided to alter some elements of the show. The second season saw the debut of many new characters as well as a heightened political commentary. In this episode we talk about the changed premises, the new characters, and what happens when you jump the network.

The 42cast Episode 19: Back to Basics

Sometimes just reading Geek Stranger isn’t enough. Sometimes you just have to listen… and where can you listen to me geek out with fellow nerds about that last season of CW’s emerald clad hero, Arrow? How does Ollie make things worse by brooding? How does Felicity make things better by computer-ing? Or… is this the rare season where Oliver isn’t his own worst enemy and Felicity makes a few bad decisions? Also, there are others in Team Arrow, too! (probably):

In this episode we take a look back at season 5 of Arrow. This season took a back-to-basics approach that showed the consequences of some of Oliver’s actions, brought back some old faces, and moved him forward as a character. There were also several new faces. In this episode we talk about the new and the old and talk about what worked and what didn’t before discussing where we hope season 6 is heading.

Sometimes just reading Geek Stranger isn’t enough. Sometimes you just have to listen… and where can you listen to me geek out with fellow nerds about the CW’s Legends of Tomorrow season two? Listen as we try to decide if this is actually a really good show, despite its weaker first season, with characters and stories worth following, or if its just a fluke of focusing on the guys who make any story interesting- because everyone secretly loves the bad boys… :

The second season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow brought a new direction, new characters, and some changes for some old ones. It also saw the formation of the Arrowverse’s first team of villains, The Legion of Doom. This week, The 42cast talks about the second season of Legends of Tomorrow and focuses in on the villains.

Sometimes just reading Geek Stranger isn’t enough. Sometimes you just have to listen… and where can you listen to me geek out with fellow nerds about the two newest additions to the ever growing Berlantiverse? On the spin off of the third episode of the 42cast, also known as the fourth episode! They’ve started laying out traps, but so far I’ve managed to avoid them without losing too many limbs…:

It’s the second part of our two-part examination of the Berlanti maxiverse. This week I’m rejoined by Ryan and Sam to talk about the first half of the current seasons of Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow. Then we talk about the 3.1 part Invasion crossover that went through all four shows.

In this episode Ryan and Sam sit down with me to talk about the four DC television series produced by Greg Berlanti for the CW. Because we recorded so much epic material, we had to split this one into two episodes, so this time we’re talking about The Flash and Arrow. We talk about what we think the highlights and downfalls of each half season have been and where we think each series is going from here.
