Hello all you Geek Enthusiasts and Nerd Aficionados!
We are back with another poll for this week. Last week saw the fight for the best Doctor Who companion ever. It was a very popular poll that John Barrowman fans ran away with. You can see the results of last week’s poll posted by our amazing BCon. On each week’s podcast the Malice Corp crew will each choose who they want to put in the ring. This week’s order was determined by whose pick got the most votes in last week’s poll.
This time we are showing our love for the CW, it’s amazing variety of TV shows, and the wonderful fans each show has fostered. These days, so few networks can marry episodic storytelling to overarching myth-arcs that encourage binge watching as well as the CW can. The storytelling is generally so on target that even its missteps have potential. So let the battle commence, and here is your contestants for the week ahead.
When presumed-dead billionaire playboy Oliver Queen returns home to Starling City after five years stranded on a remote island in the Pacific, he hides the ways the experience has changed him. At night, Oliver uses his secret persona – that of a vigilante – to right societal wrongs and transform the city to its former glory. The show works because of it’s compelling cast and awareness of the DC Comics mythology.
After seeing what doom the future holds, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter realizes heroes alone are not enough to prevent the impending catastrophe that threatens time itself. Tasked with recruiting both heroes and villains, Rip brings together a ragtag team of divergent talents. This includes the likes of Sara Lance, Ray Palmer, and Heat Wave. It’s an eclectic cast that keeps you entertained throughout the whole of time.
Magicians Penn & Teller sit in the audience and watch as aspiring magicians try to impress them with a trick that these masters of their trade are unable to duplicate. If a magician successfully hoodwinks the legendary duo with a trick, be it a sleight-of-hand routine or a grand illusion, that person wins a trip to Las Vegas to perform as an opening act in Penn & Teller’s show at the Rio Hotel & Casino. What is better than watching the legends of the illusion world be shocked and awed?
Liv Moore attends a party that turns into a zombie feeding frenzy ending up joining the ranks of the living dead. Liv forms a plan to resist her drive to eat brains by taking a job at a coroner’s office. Discovering that she absorbs the memories of those she feeds on, she finds new purpose. She works as a psychic with a detective to help solve their murders. This show is so clever and fun, and unlike any zombie show on TV.
