Where "Annihilation" scores big is having a mostly female lead cast, playing up more emotions than action in a sci-fi film and creating a stunning visual landscape. Where it doesn't score big is with the audience. This episode Allan and Patrick enter the shimmer and discuss the sad box office fate of Alex Garland's "Annihilation".

Allan gave up on Gotham 3 seasons ago but it seems the rest of the world and Patrick haven't. With it returning from its mid-season break we wanted to see how well Allan could guess at how the show has faired and where the character stories had taken them.

The CW has expanded it's DC comic base by dusting off "Black Lightning". This show has far more of a Netflix feel that other CW DCEU shows which is a good thing, but it still has its faults. Costuming, White saviors, wooden acting, and questionable attributes of controlling lightning leave Allan and Patrick feeling a bit meh. Though they have started working on a new musical number to use all the electric puns they came up with - Black Grease Lightning.

"Riverdale" is the CW's retelling of the comic classic "Archie". To help in dissecting this modern and far younger take, we've invited some local "Riverdale" experts, mean girls Hope and Julia. And be experts, we really just mean folks in the actual target audience age range!

For our 50th episode (who saw that coming?!) we're headed off to a galaxy far, far away! Even though Rotten Tomatoes has given it only a 56% so far, fans seem to love 'The Last Jedi". Its divisive nature seems to fit the theme of the film overall. For the most part characters in "The Last Jedi" are great and we see Rey as a great lead and strong female character. Snoke is the one disappointing character that really just leaves a big hole in the film, pun intended. Overall, we liked it and Patrick will be watching it at least 2 more times in the theater...because, well Patrick.
