Episode Structure – Reviews
We try to follow the same basic structure for our review and recap episodes. We always begin with our non-spoiler thoughts and reactions to the episode. This is a spoiler free time that is safe to listen to, even if you aren’t caught up on the show.
Next up is the basic summary of the episode. This is just a quick recap to serve as a reminder for what went on and only hits the highlights. You’ll want to tune off before this if you haven’t seen the episode yet to avoid spoilers.
We then move on to our in-depth breakdown of the episode. This is where we get into all the nitty gritty details of the show. We provide our analysis of what went on the episode. We also discuss our favorite scenes and discuss the questions that were raised.
We also provides guesses as to where the show will go in the coming episodes. We’ll talk about how many Jay Garricks we think there are and if the secret identity of the big bad is as obvious as it seems. Will Barry destroy the timeline again?
This is also a great time for listener feedback. If you have any questions, theories, or comments, you can contact us on the show’s page or on Twitter. We’ll do our best to get your message read on the air.
Episode Structure – News
While we do reviews for shows like The Flash and Supergirl on the podcast, the DC Daily Drop is a daily news show at its core. Our goal is to keep you up to date with all the important news in the DC movie, TV, and comics multiverse.
The podcast comes out 7 days a week and we like to stay on top of all the key news that you need to know. Whenever there is big news about the Scarlet Speedster, you can hear our thoughts and reactions. We also cover other topics about The Flash, like news and reviews of comic books and the 2018 film starring Ezra Miller.
Why we love The Flash
Do we really need to explain? I mean, you should know by now. The hosts of the show, Tom and Zac, are long time DC Comics fans. Barry Allen, Wally West, and Jay Garrick have always been important characters in the Justice League, JSA, and their own comics, but they haven’t always gotten respect outside comics.
While that changed somewhat with the 1990-1991 TV series starring John Wesley Shipp and the Justice League animated series starring Michael Rosenbaum, the character has exploded in the 2010s.
The fastest man alive first rose to higher prominence in the comics with runs by Mark Waid and Geoff Johns. The Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox animated film helped to raise the character’s profile also. But the TV series that started in 2014 and the DCEU films starring Ezra Miller have made the character a household name.
The TV series is a celebration of the character of Barry Allen. A spin-off of Arrow, it quickly became one of the most popular and best reviewed comic book television shows ever.
It’s not just Grant Gustin as Barry Allen that makes the show great. There are so many great supporting characters like Henry Allen, Joe West, Harrison Wells, Cisco Ramon, Iris West, and Caitlin Snow. And that’s just from the 1st season. The introduction Jay Garrick, Wally West, and a great group of rogues makes the show addicting.
