Cannibal Tribbles – Comic-Con 2019 (130)

San Diego Comic-Con is over for another year and Kneel Before Pod couldn’t resist the urge to weigh in with some thoughts on what was teased over the content filled weekend. The panelists discuss the various news and trailers that dropped online, covered the glut of superhero content coming our way and revelled in discussion…

Kneel Before Pod – Negative Speed Force (124)

The Flash recently completed its fifth season and as is customary Kneel Before Pod had a conversation about it. The discussion covers overusing villains, stroppy kids and the constantly changing time travel rules. A new TV show coverage format was tried so please do give your feedback on how well it worked or didn’t work…

The Flash – Season 5 Episode 21

“The Girl With the Red Lightning” The Flash has the team prepare to make use of Thawne’s plan to destroy Cicada’s dagger before she can unleash her Metahuman killing bioweapon. It would be hard to deny that this time of year on Arrowverse shows can get somewhat repetitive. The end of a given season whether…

The Flash – Season 5 Episode 20

“Gone Rogue” The Flash brings Nora back from the future and assembles a team of villains to steal a weapon that will prove useful in the fight against Cicada. The previous episode left Nora in a really dark place. Iris’ visit to the future to bring her back home did more harm than good as…

The Flash – Season 5 Episode 19

“Snow Pack” The Flash focuses on family feuds as Barry’s decision to banish Nora to the future damages his relationship with Iris and Icicle’s return forces Caitlin to spend time with her mother. Barry sending Nora back to her own time never to return at the end of the previous episode is unquestionably a selfish…

The Flash – Season 5 Episode 18

“Godspeed” The Flash delivers Nora’s backstory in the aftermath of the team learning about her connection to Eobard Thawne. At the beginning of the episode Team Flash are picking up the pieces of the previous episode and trying to find a way to move forward following finding out that Nora hasn’t been honest with them….

The Flash – Season 5 Episode 17

“Time Bomb” The Flash focuses on the threat Cicada 2.0 represents and secrets continue to cause problems for the team. The introduction of the adult Grace as a new Cicada last week was really effective in terms of how it was executed. She immediately came across as a formidable threat to Team Flash even if…

The Flash – Season 5 Episode 16

“Failure is an Orphan” The Flash has the team gear up for the final confrontation with Cicaca now that the Metahuman cure is ready to be used. It’s unfortunate that we just have to accept that the ethical debate around the Metahuman cure isn’t ever going to explored to the fullest extent of its potential….

The Flash – Season 5 Episode 15

“King Shark vs. Gorilla Grodd” The Flash returns from hiatus and delivers a monstrous bout between King Shark and Gorilla Grodd as promised by the episode’s title. I criticise this show a lot but one thing that cannot be denied is the hard work and talent that goes into realising the two main CGI antagonists….

The Flash – Season 5 Episode 14

“Cause and XS” The Flash delivers its own take on a time loop when Nora keeps repeating an hour that always ends up with at least one of the team dying. It’s surprising that it took this show until the second half of its fifth season to deliver a Groundhog Day inspired episode given all…
