Jay and Bobby have a lot to cover in episode 15! We kick it off with Netflix and the upcoming second season of Daredevil as we break down the 2nd trailer, as well as the casting of Finn Jones as Iron Fist, and the concerns of whitewashing that go with it. After some new Marvel news regarding Agents of Shield and the upcoming Most Wanted series, Bobby gives the lowdown on the latest double episode of Agent Carter and the continually impressive work of Fazekas & Butters, Hayley Atwell, Wynn Everett and everyone involved. On the DC side, there are lot of quick cuts in Supergirl fight scenes, Jimmy Olsen (Mechad Brooks) gets way more play than any other version of the character, and we congratulate the show on a deserved season 2 approval. King Shark returns to The Flash and the work of Encore VFX shines, along with a great performance from Danielle Panabaker, and a reveal of Zoom's identity! On Arrow - things get real with a guest appearance from Vixen and a real showdown with Damien Darhk and Felicity learns a major secret from Ollie's past. Lastly on Legends Of Tomorrow, we cover the great stunt coordination of JJ Makaro and the continued awesomeness of Caity Lotz. Get it all here, on the Laugh Factory podcast network from your Trusty Sidekicks!

A technical glitch held us up, but we're back with a delayed episode 14! On the Marvel side, we point out some big scenes in the new Daredevil trailer as Jon Bernthal is bringing the heat as the Punisher, a Deadpool sequel already in the works, what new photos from Doctor Strange imply and a more praise for Fazekas & Butters storytelling on Agent Carter as well as the work of Wynn Everett and Bridget Regan. Switching to DC, we laugh hard about Earth-2 Barry on the Flash, who's the man in the iron mask and we continue to guess at Zoom's identity, we exalt the almighty James Bamford, who is back directing another outstanding episode of Arrow, love the tiny easter eggs we find as well as the amazing practical effects, and we get deep into some continuity and other issues we have with Legends Of Tomorrow, while still loving the show, mostly because of Wentworth Miller and Caity Lotz, as well as a wonderful villain turn by Stephanie Corneliussen. We close out with some fresh news on Supergirl, Wonder Woman and finally a bet we make with each other on Batman V Superman. Catch it all, on the Laugh Factory Podcast Network, from your Trusty Sidekicks!

Heavy conflict strikes throughout a powerful Episode 13! Jay and Bobby have very different opinions after seeing Deadpool, and they maintain different takes on Batman V Superman, as well as this week's Supergirl, although we both praise the performance of Chyler Leigh. The layers of Flash get deeper and we cover the team's trip to Earth-2, along with the introductions of Killer Frost, Deathstorm, Reverb and of course, Zoom. We point out a lingering problem on Arrow along, but we're happy to see Nyssa is back and Laurel with something to do. We both express some concerns about Legends, but have so much about it we like (namely the work of Wentworth Miller and Caity Lotz) that we're willing to give it time. Finally, on Agent Carter, Bobby praises the work of Michele Fazekas, Tara Butters and Hayley Atwell as he is enamored with the quality of the show. Now a part of the Laugh Factory Podcast Network, it's your Trusty Sidekicks!

A post-Super Bowl podcast from your Laugh Factory podcast network hosts, Jay Washington and Bobby Hill. We crack it open with a rough episode of Supergirl, but the potential for it to be better, some really funny moments on Flash, the disappearing Jay Garrick and the wonderful work of Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells. Arrow stays sharp and we discuss how the depth of the show is really standing out, and of course we highlight the major work being done by Caity Lotz on Legends Of Tomorrow. On the Marvel side, Bobby talks about how incredible Hayley Atwell is as Peggy on Agent Carter and we get more info on Thor, Hulk's voice, and a recap of all of the trailers from the Super Bowl, including our very different feelings on Batman V Superman and X-Men: Age Of Apocalypse. It's all here, with your Trusty Sidekicks!
