THE FANDOM ZONE 017: "Suicide Squad" is Up!
"Do you cuties need some counseling? I'm a trained therapist."
-- Harley Quinn to John Diggle and Lyla Michaels, Arrow: "Suicide Squad"
As you've probably guessed, Karen Lindsay and I are back with another (really, really long) new episode of The Fandom Zone Podcast! Ah, but this time, we're joined by my Next Stop Everywhere co-host, Jesse Jackson!
This week's reviews of comics on television include:
Birds of Prey 1x04 -- "Three Birds and a Baby"
Arrow 2x16 -- "Suicide Squad"
We talk about things like Jesse being manipulated by puppet mistress Karen, Mr. Peabody meeting The Doctor, Ashley Scott's retweets, Huntress holding a grudge, discovering what notable actors appeared in Birds of Prey, birthday cupcakes for a rapidly aging baby, Karen's secret identity as Helena from Orphan Black, Jesse missing Sara Lance and Oliver Queen begin together, the secret origin of Karen and Jesse's friendship, the abandoned story potential of Oliver's Russian mob ties, Arrow fans hating the flashback scenes and Arrow writers ignoring them, Monty Python references, Amanda Waller being a Vulcan, Harley Quinn in the Suicide Squad film, Ben Browder, some comics on TV news, the closing credits of Ant-Man, and more!
