THE FANDOM ZONE 021: "The Odyssey" is Up!
"Wow, everything about you just became so unbelievably clear."
-- Felicity Smoak to Oliver Queen, Arrow: "The Odyssey"
We know, it's been far too long, but Karen Lindsay and I are finally back with another new episode of The Fandom Zone Podcast!
This week's reviews of comics on television include:
Birds of Prey 1x08 -- "Lady Shiva"
Arrow 1x14 -- "The Odyssey"
We talk about things like our final episode of The Fandom Zone Season 1, some background on DC Comics' Lady Shiva, how to identify a dead body, the importance of knowing someone to get into a metahuman bar, trying to avoid looking like Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons, how to completely forget about Batman in less than eight years, girls changing themselves to attract a guy, the first-ever LGBTQ moment on a superhero TV show, wondering why Arrow and The Flash always put their costume on a mannequin between fights, The Power of Three, Oracle's selfishness with her walking and thought-activated wheelchair tech, remembering 2002 PDA technology, how Arrow can tell a flashback story effectively, the duplicitous Moira Queen, Felicity joining Team Arrow, Arrow's love of Teen Titans mythology, wondering how the hell Oliver Queen can remember a specific quote from high school Mythology class, Homer's The Odyssey, why it's easier to be a supervillain than a superhero, fan fiction involving Felicity and Oliver's salmon ladder, some comics on TV news, hyping Season 2, and more!
