The Superhero Show Show #378

Black Lightning vs Too Many Plots

It’s the series finale of Black Lightning on an all-new Superhero Show Show!

On an all-new, all-different episode of The Superhero Show Show, Cassie and the Boyz are discussing the final episode of Black Lightning ever! BL has always been a favorite around the PopFilter offices, so now it’s time to come together to say goodbye. Will Jefferson make it out of the episode alive? Or will he defeat his villains Tobias Whale and Wayne Brady? Wayne Brady actually doesn’t show up in this episode, so we edited him in. And will the big question finally get answered: will Jefferson and his wife get back together. The Taste Buds answer all of these questions, and more!

Then comes The Pull List, your one-stop show for all info on all of the other shows that came out this week, including Fear the Walking Dead, The Flash, Jupiter’s Legacy, Legends of Tomorrow, MODOK, Superman and Lois, and Van Helsing

Then the Taste Buds take another trip to X-TASMANIA and discuss another episode of X-Men: The Animated Series! On this doozy, Beast is in love with his blind patient. And the Friends of Humanity are back, and ready to attack that blind hospital! (The hospital is for blind people…it’s not actually blind)

That’s too much show, but they recorded it anyway. Listen to it now!
