Kneel Before Pod – Shared Universes

For this edition of Kneel Before Pod, myself (Craig), Angus, Natalie and Aaron all got together to talk about the popular concept of Shared Universes and how well we think those work. The discussion brought us onto several different things that can be found in the show notes below: Show Notes The non canon Star…

Kneel Before Pod – Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad is a film that was seen and reviewed by yours truly (Craig) but there was a lot more that had to be said about it so me and Kat teamed up to have a discussion about it and get the whole thing out of our system. Kat is a first time contributor to…

Suicide Squad

The DC Extended Universe continues with David Ayer’s villain team-up Suicide Squad. The basic premise is that some of the worst villains the DC Universe has to offer are brought together to form a team to defend against the growing potential for super powered threats. On the surface this sounds like an amazing idea. Getting…

Superman #2

“Son of Superman Part Two” DC’s excellent Rebirth stories continue with the second issue of Superman. Unfortunately I was too busy to review issue 1 so hopefully I can make up for that with this one. This issue continues what was established in the previous one with the new Superman’s son, Jonathan starting to develop…

Gotham Season 1

Gotham season 2 is almost upon us so it’s a good time to revisit season 1 and reflect on it as a whole before the second season starts doing its thing. This is a very tough show to talk about because there was so much going on while there was so little going on so…

Gotham – Season 1 Episode 22

“All Happy Families Are Alike” It’s finally done, Gotham season 1 comes to an end after several torturous months of missed opportunities. The gang war comes to a serious head as Fish Mooney returns to take advantage of the situation. It’s been known for a while that Jada Pinkett Smith would not be returning for…

Gotham – Season 1 Episode 21

“The Anvil or the Hammer” Only one more Gotham episode after this one for season 1 and the Ogre/Barbara plot is brought to a definitive close. It appears that I was a little too kind on Gotham last week when I expressed how impressed I was by how the show was handling the Ogre and…

Gotham – Season 1 Episode 20

“Under the Knife” A mere 2 episodes left of the first season of Gotham after this one and I’m still no closer to figuring out what the point of this season has been. This show has tossed a lot of things into the mix but never really capitalised on any of them. Some promise existed…

Gotham – Season 1 Episode 19

“Beasts of Prey” Gotham returns from having a few weeks off and I can honestly say I didn’t really miss it. It’s no secret that I have been incredibly underwhelmed by this show on the whole. It has good elements but is really missing out on some obvious potential. This episode is no real exception…
