Crimson Comet #14 The Flash 1x11 The Sound and the Fury

This week we see Flash vs. Pied Piper in “The Sound and the Fury”.  The Flash is currently CW’s top show, and Greg Berlanti talks about part of his vision for his television universe. The episode discussion this week covers the sanctity of Cisco’s tshirts, the lack of quality in CW wigs, other takes on Pied Piper’s costume, and why he didn’t strike a brown note in the climactic battle.  This week’s tangents include Selfie Sticks, iPhones, Firefly, and Legend of Korra.  One of our hosts will be attending Paleyfest this year, and we may soon be banned in another country!

Crimson Comet #13 The Flash 1x10 Revenge of the Rogues

The hosts start off this week by taking a minute to discuss what they did over the holidays: one of them went to Hawaii, one of them went to Delaware, and one of them contracted The Plague. Then we dive into the news, where we find out that time travel is coming to The Flash, someone besides Haley has been cast as Supergirl, and Ezra Miller will never be our Flash. In this week’s episode, we finally see Flash vs. the Rogues (Heat Wave and Captain Cold). We marvel at how far Detective Pretty Boy manages to get his foot in his mouth, and we find out what Grandma Rum Daddy thinks of Iris. SPACE GHOST!!! Then we nitpick by talking about how F.I.R.E.S.T.O.R.M. is a stupid acronym and that even if Ghostbusters is a good movie, it makes for a dumb way to defeat supervillains. And for some reason, Fartman keeps coming up.

Crimson Comet #12 Justice League: The New Frontier

This episode was recorded during another off week, so we watched Justice League: The New Frontier.  Big news this week as we learn that Flash has officially been renewed for season two, there are rumors of a spinoff for Brandon Routh as the Atom, Flash and Arrow crossovers are going to be a regular event, and Supergirl will probably be crossing over as well.  We dig into the movie by discussing the incredible cast, and one of the hosts has a story about seeing a member of the cast naked.

Crimson Comet #11 Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox

With no new Flash, we decided to watch 2011's Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox. We start off with news of DC's new tv shows, Teen Titans and Krypton. We also take a look at the first images of Firestorm's costume and do a little more pontificating about the true identity of Harrison Wells. Then we dive into our discussion about Flashpoint, which can be best summarized as "twisted." We get to see the Rogues in action before being hurled into the darkest timeline. This week, we talk a lot about capes, but go most of the podcast without any poop jokes. Sorry. We wrap things up with some Arrow discussion now that Lobster has finally seen the finale.

Crimson Comet #10 The Flash 1x09 The Man in the Yellow Suit

This week we finally see what we’ve all been waiting for: Flash vs. Reverse Flash.  The appearance of the Yellow Streak has led to a lot of mad theorizing about his identity, time travel, and what connection the new show might have to the 1990 Flash (fueled by the announcement that Mark Hamill would be reprising his role as the Trickster). Despite all of the heavy material, there are still a lot of happy moments in this episode including a couple of father/son scenes with Barry’s two dads and lots of pre-Christmas gift-giving.  The puns in this episode get really bad, Yoda stops by the studio, we suggest that Firestorm see a doctor about any burning sensations, and the guys geek out over Joe’s house. This week’s poop jokes are supplemented with pee jokes. Have a festive Flashikaa!

Crimson Comet #9 The Flash 1x08 Flash vs. Arrow & Arrow 3x08 The Brave and the Bold

This week, we see Flash vs. Prism, Flash vs. Arrow, Arrow vs. Captain Boomerang, and Firestorm vs. random punks.  In honor of the Flash/Arrow crossover event, we have our own crossover: Jon is on Starling Tribune this week, and they sent Jay and Chris to join Haley.  We start by taking a moment to appreciate Felicity’s shirtless scene, then lament the lack of shirtlessness in The Flash up to this point.  We talk about the sloppy handling of evidence, what we will or won’t be calling things, whether Diggle is aware of the Brown Streak, and how hard it is to tell when Ollie is joking.

Crimson Comet #8 The Flash 1x07 Power Outage

This week, we see Flash vs. Blackout and Iris vs. Clock King in "Power Outage".  We start with news about the new Supergirl series, a brief discussion about our favorite Amell, and realize that we will soon be banned in China. We go crazy with theories about Wells, metahumans, and who is and isn’t dead. Finally, we discuss Cisco and Caitlin's character development, Grant Gustin and Stephen Amell's acting, our undying love for Felicity, and the possible introduction of the New Gods in the show. Don't worry, we still found time for poop jokes.

Crimson Comet #7 The Flash 1x06 The Flash is Born

This week we discuss The Flash season 1 episode 7 "The Flash is Born".  We try to figure out who will figure out who will figure out Barry's secret next, draw comparisons between the Flash/Iris and Superman/Lois Lane relationships, do a little nitpicking on some of this week's science, wonder what history Wells and Grodd might share, and continue to question the identity of the yet to be revealed Reverse Flash.

Crimson Comet #6 The Flash 1x05 Plastique

In our fifth episode, we discuss The Flash's sixth episode "Plastique". This week, we clarify exactly what kind of Flash podcast this is (the kind with poop jokes), Haley recaps some of the Justice League cartoons she's watched this week, Lobster comes up with a theory about the relationship between Grodd and Dr. Wells, Wil questions the science of the Flashiverse, and we wrap up with a brief DC comics geography lesson.

Crimson Comet #5 Justice League 1x12-13 The Brave and the Bold

There's no new Flash this week, so Haley, Jon, and Wil dig up an episode of Justice League featuring...Gorilla Grodd!  We discuss the upcoming Wonder Woman movie, wonder what the writers and animators were taking, and take the time to marvel at a gorilla that can use a paper clip.
