This week, after watching Season 1 Episode 20 of Elementary, Dead Man's Switch, Val and Alec stab in the dark at some truths of the universe. What would a hypothetical bell sound like? What is the difference between concrete and cement? What kind of chip could you eat if it was a year old? That last one was submitted to us by a listener and we do answer it pretty well. We're about as good at knowing things as Johnny Lee Miller is at doing an American accent, which is to say it comes and goes.

Oops, kind of a late upload this week, sorry about that! After featuring in last week's episode, Balto has become a bit addicted to the fame and could not help himself but join this week as well. He has some fun facts to tell us about the newest member of the Elementary cast of characters, Ms. Hudson! This week we watched season 1 episode 19 of Elementary, Snow Angels. This leads us to muse about such topics as old-timey rhino snowplows, Val's status as an overalls guy and wig freak, and the latest gadget: the iPhone 4. Join our discord!
Well, the election happened I guess! Matt, Sara and Val talk about that for a bit before John heard us talking about Indigenous issues without him and joined us for an update on the Mi'kmaq lobster fisheries. Also Canada's stupidest culture war is back with a vengeance! Featuring: Matt, Sara, Val and special guest John. Edited by Matt. Intro: The Taxpayers - Evil Men Outro: Gabe Gundacker - Wii Volleyball
We've read the comics and watched (a couple minutes of) the movies - nothing left to do now but wrap this thing up! In our probably final episode unless we ever somehow manage to get our hands on the UK season, we discuss the friends we made along the way and make a superhero tier list, kind of. The show was bad so we also spend some time discussing how we would've fixed it, using our knowledge and skills as professional TV show makers. Then we die! Thanks for listening!

This week, Val and Alec watched Season 1 Episode 18 of Elementary, Déjà Vu All Over Again. Also, they watched Season 1 Episode 18 of Elementary, Déjà Vu All Over Again. This episode features a fiddler, a push-ee, a suspiciously eyebrowless husband, and a few different kinds of trunk. If this all sounds familiar, you may be suffering from déjà vu's lesser known cousin, déjà who. Join our discord!
It's done, again! We read the Defuser's well-deserved ha ha comic book ha ha, check out the comics we didn't get to read, and skim through his scenes from Lightning Strikes which were way more than Feedback got and we're not mad about it. This comic? It's also bad! Thank god! Sam | Val | Gigalithic Twitter
We may have finished the show, but our dark work is not over! This week we sit down and do our best to read Feedback's comic book in a way that hopefully translates okay to an audio format. It's not very good! The comic book, I mean. Why is Feedback so sexist in this? Does he kill a bunch of people? Why does he bring an Atari joystick with him wherever he goes? Find out the answers to none of these questions and more! Sam | Val | Gigalithic Twitter
This episode, Balto finally speaks his mind! He's not just a background character of LMNOP, he has things to say, and this week he says them. We watched Elementareep Season 1 Episode 17, Possibility Two. Joan has finally started to embrace the detective life, and Sherlock has plenty of Holmeswork to help her learn more. She's reading, she's learning single stick, she's... taking his sweaters to the dry cleaner? It's all part of learning to be a detective. Alec and Val took any and every opportunity to sing and be stupid this week, and we introduced some new faces to…
Well, that's it! In the final episode of Who Wants to Be a Superhero?, we say hello to Balls, go to stunt school, say goodbye to Balls, and spend the remaining 35 minutes of the episode on the elimination. What an ending! But don't cry because it's over... cry because it's not over! Next week, we've got some comic books to read! Sam | Val | Gigalithic Twitter
This week, we watched Season 1 Episode 16, Details. Joan makes a big step this week, no thanks to Sherlock's gorilla tactics and granny shots. And don't get any funny ideas about what a granny shot is, it's a normal term. Alec and Val also do some OTGW-style singing, and debate about who's the sexiest Holmes and Watson. Is Lucy Liu foxy? Listen in to find out!
