The Arrow-verse (or CW-verse, or Berlanti-verse) had their biggest crossover yet this year with the DC Comics shows, Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow, all meeting up over four episodes to fight parallel Earth Nazi versions of themselves. So we put together our own team to take it on and see how it measures up against all the other big superhero team-ups going on out there (*eyeing Justice League*). Listen to Chris, David, Johnny Neill, and Elliott. They know what they speak of.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

    I’ll check it out. Interesting to hear that it’s the best out of all of the “event” stories so far with the CW-universe.

    I’m fine with killing Nazis in any story because Nazis are dumb and their ideology is horrific. What I have a problem with people just using the label for anyone right of Michael Moore. I’d have the same problems if that insult was used for anyone to the left of Rush Limbaugh.

    Chris. I gotta disagree here. Ray Stevenson is awesome.

    I am sorry, did I hear David right when he said “How many gay relationships are they going to have?” as a complaint? If so, that is a fucking dumb complaint. I have never heard people bitch about how many heteronormative relationships are they gonna have on a show. If they added another black superhero to one of the teams would you ask “how many black people are going to be on this show?” Hopefully it was just a joke that didn’t land right.

    That homophobic fool really put me off listening to the rest of the review.

      I think it was more that they weren’t exactly the best written romance/sexual storylines in any of these CW shows. (I just got finished watching them and they were flat, even by WB/CW level, and I LOVE well-done romance storylines).
