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?

      • 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

    • 3 billion to Earth 1
  • Team Supergirl
    • J’onn – tells team about Monitor and Crisis; has Legion’s ship
    • Coordinate evacuation to Earth 1

    • Monitor saves Clark and Lois at the last minute
  • Superman – (Routh)
  • Batwoman – Earth 1

  • 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

    • 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

Starling Tribune – Season 8 Edition – “Purgatory” Review (A CW Network Arrow Television Show Fan Podcast) ST257

Facebooktwitterredditmail

The Starling Tribune Reporters SP and Chris review the Arrow finale season seventh episode “Purgatory” with the help of Michelle’s notes. The reporters discuss the final Arrow pre-Crisis episode including the return of Yoa Fei, Billy Wintergreen and Edward Fryers; the effective CGI use in the episode; why SP’s knives are better than Stephen Amell’s knives, speculate on who is going to teach Mia how to slap water, Lyla’s transformation into Harbinger, how a path for Diggle to become the Green Lantern was missed, speculation on how Roy’s arm will be replaced, if we thought we wasted our time with the Flash Forwards, and Oliver’s great final moments with Mia and Williams. The duo also prepare themselves for Crisis by discussing the seven year build up to Crisis, the confusing nature of the pre-crisis cut scene, Chris expands a popular Monitor fan theory, discussing some of Marc Guggenheim last minute pre-crisis news, and what would be change for the better for fans post crisis.

Starling Tribune – Season 8 Edition – “Prochnost” Review (A CW Network Arrow Television Show Fan Podcast) ST255

Facebooktwitterredditmail

The Starling Tribune Reporters SP, Chris and Michelle review the Arrow finale season fifth episode “Prochnost.” The reporters discuss the strength it takes to show the weaknesses and mistakes you have made to others, the fact that Oliver DID NOT answer all the question his kids had for him, Mia’s tennis ball (and perhaps slapping water) training, the return of Anatoly to the show, the moment of Laurel’s decision, the awesome Mountainous Mustache cage fighter, Diggle’s attempt to help redeem Roy and what is Lyla betraying Team Arrow for?
