Supergirl S3E11 & Black Lightning S1E2 Review – White Thieves Matter
Shanna and The Doctor discuss the Supergirl Roadtrip to space as they seek more information on Reign from an old dark Priestess. Through some convoluted challenges, only women can go, so Kara must recruit LiveWire and Psi. Along with Imra, they infiltrate Fort Rozz but are quickly intercepted by Reign. We also debate the appropriateness of sharing your romance grief with a 12 year old.
Later, P-Funk and DB who host the Premium Star Wars Rebels cast join us to discuss the Blackity Black show Black Lightning, in an episode that saw a lot of bodies fall. This show is so gritty and realistic with its stories, and has already started sparking debate, from the meta narrative on the futility of respectability to the debate around the use of the word "fast" to discuss young Black girls. We also discuss the fact that this ain't your momma's CW DC television show, as the pacing is rapid and the stakes are high. And yeah, about White thieves-thank you Black Lightning for giving us one this week.
