Starling Tribune – Season 8 Edition – Arrow “Green Arrow And The Canaries” and Part Five Review (A CW Network Arrow Television Show Fan Podcast) ST262

Facebooktwitterredditmail

The Starling Tribune Reporters SP, Chris and Michelle review the penultimate Arrow season 8 episode 9 “Green Arrow & The Canaries.” In this episode the reporters discuss if Oliver Queen’s Crisis sacrifice was honored appropriately in the timeline, ponder why Oliver chose to keep the Earth 2 Laurel, what Earth Prime timeframe is Laurel from in the episode, the awesomeness of two canaries cries back again, wonder when the Crisis effects are fully settled and who’s memories will get restored and who stays oblivious, ask if 2040 Star City is still part of the Arrowverse of 2020, note that cool women don’t look at explosives, admire the good stunt action in the episode, smile at the return of the Queen Mansion, their theories of who the main villain is in the episode, search their memories on any other follow on series with a 20 year time jump, their wishes for what a green lit Green Arrow and the Canaries series would look like, and how the reporters are taking the other CW Arrowverse shows post-Crisis. Join the show next week for the final Arrow episode review and final Starling Tribune episode!

Article cited at bottom states, “Maybe one day we will tell that story,” Guggenheim hedges, “but again, all of those actors need to be paid, and they need to be paid a crossover rate that is above and beyond their episodic rate. That forces us to make hard financial choices that unfortunately occasionally drive the creative choices.” • Roses o SP – ? Never been done before over this many shows and this many episodes ? o Chris ? Combining earths opens some cool opportunities. ? Justice League formation is awesome. ? BEEBO! Everyone loves Beebo ? Sara gets heavily featured and proven that as Captain she’s already a leader of people. Makes sense she would lead the group. Also continuous with a trend in DC where normal humans play a fundamental role in a team ? Routh as Supes one more time. I literally cheered when i saw him in suit on screen again. o Michelle ? OMG they combined all the current CW DC shows (Stargirl on her own Earth) ? Sara in charge; given great moments: leading fight w/Beebo, heart-to-heart w/Barry; coordinating fight w/Anti-Monitor and shadow demons; speech to Anti-Monitor – For Oliver! ? Surprise Flash cameo ? Black Lightning part of Justice League. Also – Justice League! Hall of Heroes! ? Kara happy Kate on same Earth during fight w/Beebo ? Baby Sara! ? Justice for Brandon Routh – amazing shot as Superman • Point of discussion – will you watch the other shows? • For reference: Crisis on Infinite Earths: Easter Eggs and References in Part Three (14 Jan 2020) https://comicbook.com/dc/2020/01/14/crisis-on-infinite-earths-spoilers-part-4-5-easter-eggs/#21 • ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ Burning Qs Answered!

The Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Director SP. Agent Haley and Agent Michelle discuss the Runaways season 3 episodes “Lord Of Lies” and “Rite OF Thunder.” The Agents debrief you on why Michelle was correct in her Alien Brother prediction, the Alien Prophesy actually comes to fruition without Karolina having to leave Earth, how Morgan Le Fay is like Emperor Palpatine, Gert’s amazing butterfly knife prowess, a review of the amazing Wiccan-Alien glowy smoky cloud sexy time, the guess of “Mandyland” where all the characters went off to after episode 4 (actually “Mandyville” after some research), how the production team is very complimentary with ensemble cast shows like Runaways, a review of the status of the PRIDE parents, why the Magician might have been named Quinton, the must have season Vaughn appearance, and Molly’s adorable going to sleep teaching moment with Xavin.

    • Constating, Diggle, and Mia go to Purgatory – Lian Yu for Oliver
    • Oliver attacks; Diggle gets him back
    • Jim Corrigan – Constatine knows him too; Corrigan – your destiny is to save everyone, you must become the Spectre

    • J’onn J’onzz – Hero Paragon

  • Sara Lance / White Canary
  • Ray / Atom
  • Ryan Choi
    • Paragon of humanity
    • Recognizes Ray Palmer; working in miniaturization
    • I’m no hero; if the world’s ending, then I need to be home
    • Iris talks him into helping them
  • Team Legends
  • Monitor
    • Anti-Monitor wants to replace this universe with his own
    • Can only attempt to save what remains
    • Sent Earth-90 Flash away, allowing Anti-Monitor to find him
    • His world and family died; distracted by work
    • Only Earth left
    • You’ll know what to do when the moment arrives, Pariah
  • Harbinger
    • Arrives on Waverider; memory fuzzy
    • Flash and Superman figure out she’s the enemy; is the Anti-Monitor; destroys Earth-1
  • Anti-Monitor
    • Flash 90 on treadmill; failsafe – cannon destroy all Earths at once.
    • Takes over Harbinger
    • Mobius
    • Takes Novu’s power; destroys Earth-1
  • Lex Luthor
    • Of course he’s going to take a page from the book and make himself a hero
  • Pariah
    • Controlled by Anti-Monitor; bears witness
    • Cisco vibes his memories
    • Brings Black Lightning, who doesn’t know about multiple Earths and whose Earth is gone
    • Teleports Flash, Sara, Batwoman, Supergirl, Superman, J’onn J’onzz, and Ryan to the Vanishing Point – outside of time and space; Lex comes out of Superman to rewrite destiny
  • Black Lightning
    • Contains energy from canon
    • Not from Earth-1
    • Rage against the dying of the light
  • Thorns:
    • SP
      • All three episodes sort of feel like a waste now because everything is gone
      • Loved the cameos, but some are obscure for Arrowverse fans
        • Choi
        • Lucifer
        • Spectre
        • Stargate Pioneer
      • Jon Cryer – what a great Lex – plus the Christopher Reeve connection in Superman IV. Yes, I know we’ve discussed it before but I felt it needed to be mentioned again.
      • The way the Flash cast just miraculously portals in
        • Punctuates the separate episodes and not true continuous miniseries event
      • Black Lightning just a bit more than a cameo
      • It would have been nice to see Oracle on Earth 203
      • World’s Finest confrontation …a bit old with Batman v Superman
      • Why does Vibe live again when Cisco went through the whole arc of becoming non meta again? – I know,because plot and he was the only one to get through the treadmill force field. But….really?
    • Chris
      • Why isn’t Dig the Green Lantern yet?
      • Spectre reveal kinda came out of nowhere
    • Michelle
      • Still upset that we didn’t see Nash become Pariah or Lyla become Harbinger and why she ended up w/Anti-Monitor and as the Anti-Monitor
      • If Anti-Monitor could destroy all Earths at once, why not do so? (I know, because plot, but still)
      • Oliver didn’t need to become the Spectre; Corrigan would’ve been great to see
    • Roses
      • SP –
        • All the cameos.
        • John Wesley Shipp’s 90’s flash gets an ending
        • Diggle’s issue about not being with Oliver – true to the characters
        • Routh’s Superman … again.
      • Chris
        • John Wesley Shipp is OG flash again! and we get an actual 90s flash flashback
        • Brandon Routh is still great. Can we give him a Superman show?
        • Diggle and Oliver’s friendship is shown to be a big deal when he’s the one that pulls him out.
        • Lex tricks everyone (keep in mind he sees himself as a hero normally). BUt bummed it’s Routh Supes that is gone :(
        • Kara and Kate conversation ends when Kara tells her to keep the kryptonite
  • Michelle
    • Lucifer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love Tom Ellis and the show. Maze is Mazikeen, loyal servant/friend of Lucifer’s; Constantine helped bring her out of Hell to Earth; there are rules preventing Lucifer from just bringing whoever he wants out of Hell; even Lucifer has to go back to Hell; visit is pre-TV show
    • Treadmill from comics; a Flash has to die; flashback to Flash TV show (knew this was going to happen, still teared up anyway)
    • Logical reason to bring in Black Lightning
    • Diggle brings back Oliver
    • Still loving Snart as the voice of the Waverider
  • For reference: Crisis on Infinite Earths: Easter Eggs and References in Part Three (10 Dec 2019) https://comicbook.com/dc/2019/12/11/crisis-on-infinite-earths-part-3-easter-eggs/

        • Felicity (Chris good point)
      • Is Lyla Lyla or Harbinger. Diggle at home with JJ?
      • Yea I liked Leonard on the Earth-74 Waverider, but why not use the ACTUAL Waverider?
      • The book of destiny – who can use it and who cannot? – Not exactly the same book as last crossover
      • Epic Superman v Superman fight destruction – they definitely need a glass repair service on Earth-96
      • If the Monitor knew who the paragons were – why waste time sending them on their journey to Earth-99?
    • Chris
      • Where Diggle? He should be here and be a potential voice of reason for not using a Lazarus Pit
      • Its a sendoff for Smallville but no Welling in suit
        • Blue K theory? (doesn’t really matter now)
        • I’m conflicted here it’s a good sendoff to Clark. Part of his narrative in the show was that he wanted to me normal at times.  I think I built it up too much in my mind. But tbh I’m a bit salty we still never got Welling in the suit
      • CG on the Super fight was a bit rough but TV budget so okay
      • What’s up with Lyla? Is this going to be explained in the comic tie-in?
      • Sidequest the episode.  Big stakes from part 1 aren’t really in play here
    • Michelle
      • Tom Welling not in Superman suit
      • Lazarus Pit, really? The multiverse is ending; Barry spends a lot of time on side mission
      • Harbinger’s going to Anti-Monitor really not explained
  • Roses
    • SP –
      • “Yea. I kind of promised my crew we’d never have to do another crossover”
      • Jonathan crying and being passed off from person to person until Mick stops him
      • World’s Finest Teamup to Earth-99. “Bat Of The Future”
      • Lois has a thing for ALLSupermen
      • Lex Luther’s “Superfriends” comment to Earth-167 Superman
      • It was fitting to have Batman in the Batwoman episode
      • Superman v Superman fight was made better by two actors: Brandon Routh and Tyler Hoechlin
      • For all the Legends Of Tomorrow side characters to be in Crisis, it was good to see Jonah Hex
      • End credit symbols are pretty cool
    • Chris
      • Leo replaces Gideon
      • Routh is still a perfect Superman. This is the series they should be pursuing.
        • He is from Superman Returns via reference to his son Jason
      • Kara eyes up Routh Supes gets told he’s her cousin by Superman prime was fun
      • Ray and Supes trading quips on teh Waverider was fun
      • Having not watched Cryer in Supergirl I don’t know what he was like previously but he nails it as Lex
      • Kevin Conroy is batman even if its evil batman.
        • they took my batman and put him in live action. Normally I complain about guggenheim and his need to defy expectations of fans. I actually liked it here. To many people Kevin Conroy is the definitive version of batman. One who never kills. To take this version and have him be a broken version similar to Dark Knight Returns Batman was not what I expected. And seeing Conroy pull off broken Batman both physically and mentally was quite the show.
      • Teased me with Batman Beyond when referencing a Gotham from the future
      • Smallville
        • Didn’t expect to get it.
        • Like the nod to Lex as president
        • Wish there had been more
      • Alternate earth Mick is still delightful as is his babysitting
    • Michelle
      • Tom Welling!!!! Everyone noticing how buff he is
      • Like the Kara/Constantine/Mia teamup
      • Kate and Kara develop relationship
      • Cryer gets to be more Lex Luthor-y than on Supergirl
      • Kate has character development w/interaction w/Bruce
      • Brandon Routh gets to show the world why he’s a great Superman and deserves to take over from Cavill
      • Episode made me like Superman again

    1. I am sad that the Starling Tribune is about to shut down. Y’alls coverage of the show plus the One-shots and other stuff yuns do is fantastic. Just listened to Purgatory and thought that I would mention that on VUDU you can buy the bundles of Invansion and Crisis On Earth-X. They haven’t got Elseworlds bundled yet but hopefully they do, and obviously I hope eventually they get Crisis On Infinite Earths bundled too. Thanks, I appreciate y’all, it’s been fun listening to y’alls coverage, and looking forward to these last little bit of episodes. Thanks!

    4. [Crisis Spoilers] Star City
    5. spoiler
    6. Star City 2046 can’t be the same Earth featured in Legends of Tomorrow. I know Sara said the Waverider jumped dimensions, but she has to be wrong. In Legends of Tomorrow S1E6, Sara meets future Oliver and he says:
    7. “30 years ago, you and Ray hopped on a spaceship, and you never came back.”
    8. In Crisis Part One, they meet alternate Oliver, and he says:
    9. “You’re dead. You… you went down with the Gambit.”
    10. So, Earth-16 is an alternate Earth that’s very similar to Star City 2046, but Sara actually died on the Gambit. She never got on the Amazo, joined the League, or came back to Star City. Star City 2046 was a potential future for Earth-1 that was avoided.

Starling Tribune – Season 8 Edition – Supergirl “Crisis On Infinite Earths Part One” Review (A CW Network Arrow Television Show Fan Podcast) ST258

Facebooktwitterredditmail

The Starling Tribune Reporters SP and Chris review the 2019 Arrowverse Crossover Crisis On Infinite Earths Part One (technically Supergirl Season 5 Episode 9) with the help of Michelle’s notes once again. Michelle was out sick for the week. The reporters discuss the final Arrow included crossover episode part one including why you should enjoy these episodes while you have access to them, that this is simply the MOST AMBITIOUS crossover in the history of television spanning SIX currently airing television shows, why its time to geek out over all the cameos, the reporter’s takes on the Earth-16 adventure (more to come in a later episode), the reporter’s roses and thorns with this episode of the crossover, why Arrow fans might feel cheated at the big Arrow moment and Marc Guggenheim’s reasons for it,if the crossover can be produced like a 5 episode miniseries or a 5 episode premium streaming series, why James Bamford would have been a great addition to the Supergirl episode production staff, and what was that deal between the Monitor and Oliver Queen about anyway?

Part 1: The Plot, Themes and Characters

  • What was the overall theme? What was the link to the episode’s name?
    • Part 1 of crossover
    • Crisis across the multiverse
  • Fight scenes and stunts
    • Supergirl saves Wil Wheaton from Spike
    • Batwoman takes down members of Alice’s gang
    • Tower
      • Atom, Batwoman, Mia, Oliver vs. Shadow Demons
      • Supers helping w/earthquake stuff
      • Batwoman allows Ray to upgrade batarang
      • Supers come back w/Flash
      • Rooftop fight
      • Monitor – must retreat
      • Oliver – I have to fight; shocks Monitor; runs out of arrows; puts up his fists; “dies”
  • Time Travel / Crisis / Cameos
    • Monitor VO: Big bang – life; multiverse multiplying like mitosis; Age of Heroes finally born; heroes in time to save multiverse
    • Earth-89: Gotham – Keaton’s Batman world – Alexander Knox (Robert Whul) reads paper
    • Earth 9 – San Francisco – DC Universe Titans destroyed
    • Earth X – The Ray
    • Earth 66 – Burt Ward walking dog – “Holy crimson skies of death!”
    • Earth 38 – Supergirl’s world – Wil Wheaton – doomsday sign (Michelle: I did not see this cameo coming)
    • Earth 16 – 2046
      • Legends landed in an alternate Earth’s future
      • Lois, Sara, and Brainiac go
      • Bunker – Oliver has baby; Oliver and Sara fight; Sara and Old Man Oliver talk
  • Oliver Queen / Green Arrow – Earth 1
    • Gives Mia her own Green Arrow suit and bow; there should always be at least one Green Arrow
    • Upset when Barry says he’s going to die; demands to see the Monitor; Oliver – Kara and Barry are supposed to live; Monitor spared lives to save them last year; this is a new crossover (LOL), a new problem
    • Saved 1 billion
    • Barry and Kara – save us
    • Mia – find your mother and William
  • Team Arrow
  • Supergirl – Earth 38
    • Warns Argo, but too late
    • Convinces Batwoman others are ok
    • Has hope; Krypton is a spirit; fight for what’s right
    • 3 billion to Earth 1
  • Team Supergirl
    • J’onn – tells team about Monitor and Crisis; has Legion’s ship
    • Coordinate evacuation to Earth 1
    • Lana – build portal; awkward convo w/Alex Danvers; I would help even w/o apology; I’m not evil
  • Superman – 38 (Hoechlin)
    • Son – Jonathan: Lois, Alura, and Clark puts him in pod to Earth (Brando’s dialogue)
    • Monitor saves Clark and Lois at the last minute
  • Superman – (Routh)
  • Batwoman – Earth 1
    • Michelle – BW asks about Alice, which is the current storyline; the timeline is off; last year she met Supergirl & co, but her show started at the beginning of her superhero career
  • Barry Allen / Flash – Earth 1
  • Team Flash
  • Sara Lance / White Canary
    • Never thought I would see parent Oliver
  • Ray / Atom
    • Last year at Woodstock – Janis Joplin noticed him and gave her a new song
  • Team Legends
  • Monitor
    • This is not the ending I saw for Oliver
  • Harbinger
    • Collects hero; brings them to Earth 38
    • Explains what’s going on to team; Earth 38 – tipping point
    • Raises the Quantum Tower – Monitor placed them on key Earths
    • Have to protect tower from Anti-Monitor
  • Lex Luthor
  • Pariah
    • Don’t see Nash become Pariah (Michelle: Where’s Psycho Pirate?)
    • Witness to Anti-Monitor’s actions
    • Everything is doomed
  • Thorns:
    • SP
      • Disconnected episode by episode production
        • Focused on the show episode’s cast (In this case Supergirl)
      • Plot progressing too fast (Better on second viewing)
      • Vast destruction and death not easily comprehensible
        • Too much, too quick
      • Jonathan’s single escape wasn’t necessary – why Earth-16?
      • William not in Crossover and doesn;’t get to experience Oliver dying
      • Batwoman’s timeline
      • Where did Mia’s Arrow suit come from?
      • Supergirl subplots – especially Lena Luther was not necessary
        • How many billions died because Lena argues about helping?
      • Ray was vulnerable while giving Batwoman upgrade
      • Arrow’s death scene – full quiver to no quiver instantly
      • Where are his knives/blades?
      • Scene cut short
      • Arrow dies on Supergirl – not on Arrow.Pretty big deal.
      • Pariah just appears like Harbinger. No origin story
    • Chris
      • Lena sucks
      • pacing seemed off.
      • Ollie death to ‘subvert our expectations’ bs
      • Ollie’s magic quiver
      • shadow demons looks like dementors
    • Michelle – don’t see Lyla become Harbinger or her relationship w/Monitor; don’t see Nash become Pariah; wanted tower to become part of plot like in comics; wish crossover treated like 5 hour movie, not upset Oliver died in Part 1, but just because it’s called Supergirl doesn’t mean all the stupid subplots from the show have to be in the crossover (I think we’ve had this complant every crossover)
  • Roses
    • SP –
      • “Age Of Heroes” Multiverse Intro
      • Worldbuilding – All the Earths, all of DC’s screen coming together
      • 4th Wall broken early and often – didn’t take itself too seriously
      • Homages to 78 Superman with Jonathan was cool
      • Chyron’s really helped map out where people were
      • Supergirl and Superman comforting each other in the face of tremendous loss – DEO Balcony
      • Avenger’s Age Of Ultron battle around the machine / Harry Potter
      • Tons of female leads. Lyla/Harbinger, Supergirl, Sara, Alex Danvers, Lena Luther, Batwoman
    • Chris
      • Legends team trivia with time goof. hell yeah
      • Ollie and Sarah friendship is solid and referenced a lot
      • Happily ever after for Clark/Lois
      • Ray is a delight (batwoman upgrades and nerding out)
      • Getting to see Amell play another Ollie is fun
      • Symmetry for Kal-El and Jonathon
      • Other Earths (Batman 89 awesome)
    • Michelle – fixed Legends 2046 plot hole / great Old Man Ollie-Sara moment; Batwoman: interactions w/Ray, trusting Kara, and kicking butt; Amell’s acting is on point; Mia gets suit from Dad
  • For reference: Crisis on Infinite Earths: Easter Eggs and References in Part One (8 Dec 2019) https://comicbook.com/dc/2019/12/08/crisis-on-infinite-earths-spoilers-part-1-easter-eggs-cameos/#1
