This podcast has taken a different turn as there is no one to host the program. Let me rephrase, there is no human on the actual podcast. When you listen to the show, you will understand.

In the meantime, this podcast is going cover several reviews:

  • Agents of Shield Season 4 Opener
  • Gotham Season 3 Opener
  • Raiders! Fan film documentary

Returning with a vengeance, I, The Monster, took the podcast one step further. Aside from the regular 3 news items I normally talk week to week, I’ve added 7 season finale reviews.

Before I do that, what are the BIG 3 scifi news stories that I will be talking about?

  1. Thor 3 looks to have elements of Planet Hulk
  2. Star Trek Beyond 2nd trailer and CBS drops lawsuit against Axanar
  3. New director for The Flash solo movie

Gotham Pilot Review

Can a tv series about Batman’s famous home city make it without a Batman? Before I can answer this question, Gotham City has been portrayed as dark and seedy place where even the more wretched hive of scum and villainy of Mos Eisley dare not tread. Yet, the city is the backdrop and rarely do we see it as a city on its own. Burton’s gothic take and Schumacher’s living comic book colors of Gotham were passable but I for one never felt it as a real city.  Nolan’s Batman gave us a better glimpse as we could see the city in night and day but Gotham gives us an even better perspective on a city street level. You could feel the corruption of this city oozing through the screen watching the pilot. Gotham has surprised this die-hard Batman fan to say, yes, this series can survive without a Batman. The same can not be said of Superman’s Metropolis and not Fritz Lang’s Metropolis; just to be clear.

As for the details about this episode, I will have to wait before I chime in and maybe be able to do a podcast on this show. So far, I loved what I saw.
