DC TV Classics 12 – Revisiting ‘Smallville’ with Al Gough

This week, DC TV Classics is crossing over with The Nerds of Color’s Hard NOC Life podcast to bring you part two of Keith’s one-on-one conversation with Smallville co-creator Al Gough! At The Nerds of Color, Al and Keith discussed the need for more diversity in Hollywood, the creation of the AMC martial arts epic Into the Badlands, and Al’s experience working with Hong Kong cinema superstars like Jackie Chan and Jet Li. For DC TV Classics, the two of them take a deep dive into the history of Smallville, The CW show that kicked off the network’s current superhero boom. Al shares anecdotes from the casting of the show’s iconic leads to working with Christopher Reeve and how Smallville compares to the current TV incarnations of the DC Universe.

Before the interview, Keith, Britney, and Desiree share some news including their reactions to The Flash/Supergirl musical episode, the passing of Swamp Thing co-creator Bernie Wrightson, and Smallville alum Michael Rosenbaum’s entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

DC TV Classics 13 – The Aqua-Manny: Commentary Track for CW’s ‘Aquaman’ Pilot

This week on DC TV Classics, Britney, Desiree, and Keith watch The CW’s unaired Aquaman pilot starring Justin Hartley and provide their own commentary track. Now that Aquaman is finally a cool superhero again (shout out former co-host Ken Knudtsen!) thanks to Jason Momoa in Justice League, we revisit the Smallville spin-off that initially tried to Make Aquaman Great Again! Download the episode on iTunes, and follow along as we comment on the Aquaman show that almost was. See Justin Hartley before he was the Green Arrow and before he was The Manny! Afterwards, Britney, Desiree, and Keith break down Aquaman’s reputation as a lame superhero and what to expect from his forthcoming cinematic debut.

Before the commentary, Desiree shares her thoughts on watching Teen Titans: The Judas Contract on her birthday, Britney gets excited about the return of Bruce Timm’s animated Batman in the just announced Batman & Harley Quinn animated movie!
