Crimson Comet #20 The Flash 1x16 Rogue Time

We change things up this week, and dive right into our conversation about this week’s episode of The Flash, “Rogue Time”. Given the wibbly wobbly nature of the episode, there are a lot of questions about time travel: Is time immutable, what are the consequences of change, and how committed is Barry to preserving the timeline (not even a little). We quickly say farewell to the Weather Wizard before seeing Captain Cold and Heatwave add a new team member to the Rogues, the Golden Glider. We reiterate what a terrible name Snart is before acknowledging how comicbooky the Rogues are starting to sound. We take a break to discuss the boys from The Flash performing the Firefly theme song before moving on to next week’s episode featuring Mark Hamill as the Trickster.

Crimson Comet #19 The Flash 1x15 Out of Time

This week, we start off by discussing Geekation, the sizzle reel from Paleyfest, and the new Flash/Arrow spinoff series potentially featuring Captain Cold, Heatwave, the Canary, Firestorm, and Atom. Then we move on to highlights from the Flash Paleyfest panel, which include the potential of other Flashes in the series such as Bart Allen and Wally West, Grant Gustin's resemblance to Rachel Maddow, the role that Gunther fills at Star Labs, the most important men in Iris's life, and Detective Pretty Boy's accent. Then we move into this week's episode, starting with Spartacus. We also discuss Cisco's sonic screwdriver, I mean Wizard's Wand, the awkward way that Barry and Iris behave on an impromptu double date, and the subtle way that Caitlin spies on Dr. Wells. Time travel comes up several times, with details about the butterfly effect, time travel mechanics, Doctor Who, Terminator, and Back to the Future.

Crimson Comet #18 Justice League 2x11-12 A Better World

This week, the hosts are joined by special guest George! It’s another off week for The Flash, so we watch Justice League 2x11-12 “A Better World”. We start off with discussions about time travel, paradoxes, and parallel universes. We move into the upcoming Marvel and DC reboots before wandering off into the Walking Dead and classic Doctor Who. We realize that when we watch cartoons, it’s always a Watchmen story. We then go into Green Lantern and Hawkgirl’s relationship, the difficulties of telling a good Superman story, and the Flash’s role as the moral compass of the DC universe in all of his iterations. Since the Justice Lords showed up with some new costumes, we took the opportunity to discuss the upcoming Supergirl’s costume as well. We move into discussions about bloody nipples and runner’s trots because of course we did, and finish up with Wil and Haley’s plans to be evil masterminds.

Crimson Comet #17 The Flash 1x14 Fallout

GRODD!!! This week, we speculate about General Eiling’s fate, time travel, and the man in the yellow suit. When we realize that Dr. Stein (who we only refer to as Victor Garber for the entire episode) is ordering a Hawaiian pizza, we become a cast divided. We wonder where Sherry is while Joe and Barry have another episode of CSI: Central City in her house. Lobster and Haley go hardcore nerd over the Dothraki quote that was dropped this episode, while Wil lingers on the Friends reference. Wil doesn’t really spoil Downton Abbey, and Haley returns the favor by not really spoiling Arrow. We begin to wonder about Eiling’s 50 Shades of Grodd fan fic before we are interrupted by the musical interlude.
