Before Black Lightning season 3 premieres next week, we do our review of season 2. We’re one cast member short this time, but that doesn’t mean that we haven’t jam packed the episode full of all the careful analysis, witty banter, and overall geeky hijinks of any other episode of The 42cast. We discuss the villainy of Tobias Whale, the awesomeness of the Pierce family, and discuss how well the social commentary worked. We also go into discussing the season overall and where the Markovian storyline could be heading.

This week’s 5-minute controversy is a review of the trailer for the Joker film.

This week James and Mike join the cast.
