We’ve had a major malfunction, True Believers. Computers crashed mid-recording, but we were able to save a bit of what we were planning to do. What you’ll hear is Nick (@nickyahogan) and John (@johned970) discussing the trailer for the new CW show, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, as well as the last several episodes of The Flash and iZombie. What you’re missing is their picks for the best and worst of the new trailers that came out of recent broadcast upfronts. Maybe, they’ll cover those on the next podcast.
We’re nearing the end of the TV season and three of our regular shows have run their finales. Nick (@nickyahogan) and John (@johned970) are only discussing Gotham, Agents of SHIELD, and Arrow this week. But first they tackle the upfront news from 4 of the 5 broadcast networks, including renewals, cancellations and new comic book shows. This week’s Things That They Found Interesting looks a tiny bit at one of the new showsfor next fall and the universe changing in the worlds of the floppies.

Even after taking a week off, there was no news this week, True Believers; not because there wasn’t anything to discuss, but because we had a technical difficulty.

They wrap up their Americans Minute with a lot of frustrated sighs. This week’s Things That They Found Interesting looks a tiny bit at the upcoming upfronts and one of TV’s best underrated comedies.

It’s time for our first One Shot, True Believers. Nick (@nickyahogan) and John (@johned970) devote this special issue to the recent Marvel Cinematic Universe offering, The Avengers: Age of Ultron. They talk about what they love about the movie and what they wish had been a little different. There is much praise heaped on Jeremy Renner and Hawkeye and much confusion about some of those fight scenes. And because they can’t give up their regular beat, they break down what the movie might mean for the ABC show, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD
