Recap and Reviewing Arrow: Too Many Trust Issues Spoil The Soup

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to The Basement! Tonight I'm going over the Arrow episode 'A Matter of Trust', which guest starred Cody Rhodes. Was the episode good, was it bad, and I guess the Flash messing with time didn't bring back the good version of Deadshot.

  • I couldn't tell if Mr. Terrifc was hitting on Ragman or not
  • Felicity's bombshell of a revelation certainly will be interesting if it's followed up on
  • Cody turning into a variation of Solomon Grundy via a substance called Stardust is rather ironic
  • Cody's performance was solid, it wasn't a breakout role or anything special
  • The flashbacks need to go away, this week's lesson just hammered in the 'moral' of the actual main story even more so
  • I'm know some fic writers who will have a field day with Speedy dealing with the reporter

Recap and Review Agents of SHIELD: Chains on Fire, Team Reunited

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement... tonight we're going over episode 4 of season 4 of Agents of SHIELD, 'Let Me Stand Next to Your Fire'. Was this a good episode? Was this to get all the good guys on the same page? Was this just to have a fun car chase?! 

  • I'm sure there are many fan fic writers who will be coming up with 'interesting ways' for Quake to convince Simmons to help her. 
  • The car chase was fun, but felt it went a minute too long
  • Really seems like the goal of the episode was to the main cast of characters on the same page, including Robbie
  • That breakaway wall was just... bad... really... really bad....

Some could argue that Coulson should be on the other side of the glass

The face of a man who sold his sold to the devil....

Even without going full 'Flaming Skull', Robbie is has a threatening feel to him
