This Week

George is back! We talk about the upcoming Geekation, but through the wibbly wobbly nature of podcast production, that event has already passed. Overwhelmed by his duties, Cisco deputizes Atom to aid in naming the supervillains/heroes. We find out that Flash is a founding member of... something. We wonder how the group can be so cavalier with Cisco's safety before remember that it's all about the Allens. We appreciate Cisco's movie references (Inception, Dreamscape, Back to the Future, and Temple of Doom). This guy really is one of us. After a lot of discussion, the everyone winds up on Team Eddie. We talk again about how Iris is Lois Lane stupid before moving on to another DC geography lesson. Wil and Haley also take a minute to explain Star Labs security to George.

This Week

This is our favorite episode of Arrow ever! We see Laurel at her best, but Iris is at her worst. We get around to another DC geography lesson before moving on to a terrible SnowBarry scene followed by some awesomely awkward Caitlin. We also get to see Barry’s version of running like a normal person. We move on to a discussion on time travel mechanics and try to break down all of the different alternate timelines before our ears start bleeding. Haley tries to show off her terrible Wing impression, but slips into Jamaican. Sorry. This podcast is brought to you by rum.

This Week

Lobstah is lovin’ the puns in this episode, there is a Candyman reference that Haley doesn’t understand, and the whole crew is bummed that we missed out on karaoke night.  We also wonder what Eddie is hiding under his shirt before going off on tangents about Spartacus, Game of Thrones, Outlander, and Twin Peaks. If you’re looking for a podcast full of bee puns, you won’t bee disappointed. If you don’t like puns, buzz off.

Crimson Comet #21 The Flash 1x17 Tricksters

This week, we’re joined by not so special guest Wing from Starling Tribune. We jump right into our discussion by geeking out over the Flash/Reverse-Flash flashback fight. We talk about time travel, whether we might see other Flashes like Bart Allen or Wally West, and how awesome Mark Hamill is as the Joker...I mean Trickster. A great line from the Trickster gave us the perfect excuse to give will crap about the Cubs. We also talk a lot about Arrow, and Mama Rum Daddy stops by the studio to tell us what she thinks of Wing.

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.

Crimson Comet #16 The Flash 1x13 Nuclear Man

Join Haley, Jon, and Wil, as they take on two guesting hosts in this host-a-palooza episode.  Weekly commentator Adam joins the team along with Gallifrey Public Radio & The Starling Tribune’s very own Jay.  It’s a 5-way of puns, laughter, concepts and poop jokes as they discuss and dissect this weeks episode of The Flash: Nuclear Man.  They revisit the problems with wigs and and the comparisons of the Amells.  Jay proposes his idea that the show is following a “Dallas” storyline.  And everyone discusses “pepper puking.”

Crimson Comet #15 The Flash 1x12 Crazy for You

GRODD!!! This week, we try to figure out exactly how many men in yellow suits are running around Central City, discuss the prison conditions down in the Pipeline, and wonder if Heroes: Reborn is gonna be any good. GRODD!!! We dig into the episode by comparing the tv and comic incarnations of Peek-a-Boo, wonder if anyone that works on the show has ever been to a real dive bar, marvel at Caitlin’s fantastic karaoke, and discuss Barry’s love life. GRODD!!! We then speculate on what events would have to occur for the Pied Piper to end up with Captain Singh, how Peek-a-Boo’s boyfriend managed to escape, and how the Rogues might continue to develop through the rest of the season. GRODD!!! You might want to finish eating before the end of this week’s podcast. GRODD!!!
