Batman V Superman has arrived and we have our thoughts on that and more in this week's epsiode 19! As promised, we give our complete, non-biased (at least Bobby is) review of Dawn Of Justice, with praise for Ben Affleck, some heavy criticism of Zack Snyder, and a plot device that we both found to be totally absurd. In Gotham, Bobby has almost pulled Jay on board and Paul Reubens is a big help. We find proof of how old Penguin will be when Batman finally hits the scene (too old) and we get our first of a couple of shows about mushrooms and drugs in general, thanks to Poison Ivy. We're both confident of Supergirl getting a second season and think Melissa Benoist, and the rest of the team deserve it. We love David Harewood as Martian Manhunter and we see it improving. Flash gets another speedster in the mix as Allison Paige shows up as Trajectory and Bobby questions whether anyone who has ever written a show has actually done drugs in the second drug-related show of the week. Side stories involving our buddy Tone Bell (whom we interviewed in episode 6) and a possible spark between (future) Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale) and (future) Jesse Quick (Violett Beane might be happening. On Arrow, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) brings Jay to tears - oh as well as Ollie (Stephen Amell,) as Cupid (Amy Gumenick) is back and terrorizing socialite couples. We close it out on the Marvel side with a very sentimental episode of Agents Of Shield, as Bobbi and Lance (Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood) finally take their leave from the show - before they show up in their own vehicle, Marvel's Most Wanted. It's one of our most hilarious yet, it's the Trusty Sidekicks, on the Laugh Factory Podcast Network!
With both of us stuck at airports like Tom Hanks in Terminal, we're getting this out a little late, but episode 18 is a doozy! There's a new Age Of Apocalypse trailer and we wish we were more excited for this movie...alas, Batman v Superman is getting some good early reviews and Jay might be coming around on it! On the Marvel side of the street, season 2 of Daredevil is out! We break down the first four episodes even though we've seen the whole thing and talk about how incredible everyone from Jon Bernthal to Deborah Ann Woll to stunt coordinator Philip J Silvera. Agents of Shield continues it's killer storyline and we are digging the "Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) as Hive" storyline. Back over on the DC side, Supergirl gets turnt on that red kryptonite and becomes Hancock and we continue our hype of David Harewood as Martian Manhunter. Jay is all in on Gotham now, Paul Reubens is coming and has there been an Azrael sighting? We've finally arrived at our destinations, it's the Trusty Sidekicks on the Laugh Factory Podcast Network!
Bobby barely survives and Jay comes around on Gotham in an outstanding Episode 17! We open with a breakdown of the new Captain America and our first glimpse at Tom Holland's Spiderman, as well as how his involvement with Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr) will carry over into his solo film. Agents Of Shield's return is an appropriate follow up and we enjoy how Skye (Chloe Bennet) is building up her team and how Brett Dalton (Grant/Hive) is still crushing everything on screen. On the DC side, Jay may have finally turned the corner on getting into Gotham thanks to a killer Mr Freeze storyline and agrees that BD Wong and Robin Lord Taylor are super strong on the show. Despite our issues with Legends Of Tomorrow, we still find the show crazy entertaining. We break down the teams trip to 1958 and all the racial, gender, and sexual orientation problems that come with it. Caity Lotz is still our favorite ninja and we enjoy trying to recreate Franz Drameh's (slightly) overdone, east coast accent. We close it out with some movie news for Batman V Superman, Justice League and the Flash/Aquaman movies on the DC side and info on Luke Cage, more Spidey news and a Spidey-related title, going into production for Sony. Bring your underoos, it's The Trusty Sidekick podcast, on the Laugh Factory podcast network!
Jay and Bobby are back with another hilarious episode! This week, Gotham returns, we learn how to pronounce "Fries," applaud the work of Robin Lord Taylor and also that Jay might finally be enjoying this show! Family and forgiveness is a huge part of our Supergirl breakdown and we cover the introduction of Brainiac 8 (aka Indigo,) while Bobby suggests an interesting storyline for the writers. Both that and Legends are getting better with every episode and we again have praise for Caity Lotz as White Canary, the improvement of Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter and the overall fun of the show. Jay has finally got on board with Agent Carter, just in time for the season finale. We both decide we hope it's not the series finale as we think the work of Fazekas & Butters as storytellers is outstanding and everyone from Hayley Atwell to Matt Braunger make the show so fun. Closing it out, we knock out some big news for Batman V Superman regarding Jena Malone, Katie Aselton joining a new Marvel show and more. Fresh from the Laugh Factory Podcast Network, it's the Trusty Sidekicks!
