Episode 18: A Brief Reminiscence In-Between Cataclysmic Events or Shirt Rips & Phone Booths & Pain

The BAM Crew (Bethany, Alison, and Michael) are back with a brand new, oversized episode!  This time out they are discussing the eleventh episode of Superman and Lois, which was titled A Brief Reminiscence In-Between Cataclysmic Events.  

And there were some legit Cataclysmic Events in this episode.

There was a lot to unpack about this episode between the flashbacks and the ending and the fact that there is someone who is a bigger jerk than Hologramps.  Alison has some amazing obscervations (including something about Baby Jordan), Bethany waxes Tyler Hoechlin’s car, and Michael discusses why Bitsie Tulloch may be his favorite live action Lois ever.  The Crew also goes through a whole bunch of audience feedback, which is why the episode is a tad longer than usual.

This is not meant as a complaint.  Please, send more feedback!

As promised, here is the link for Save Me: The Smallville Anthology podcast that was mentioned during the feedback section.

Techincal Note: There was something wonky abou Bethany’s audio.  Usually this sort of thing is able to be dealt with in post production, but this time it couldn’t be helped.  It’s not terrible, but it is there.  This is all on Mike for not being able to sort it out.

The Superman and Lois Tapes can be found on both Apple Podcasts and Spotify. The show can be reached by email at [email protected].  You can also leave comments here or over at the Facebook page for the show, which you can get to by clicking this link.

The main theme for the show is “Heroes” by the awesome Mike Schmidt.  You can find his work over at Speed Force Music.

Next Time: The Crew begin their second hiatus period with a surprise!

  1. First, if I may, I’d like to address some slight misunderstanding of my feedback on your previous episode. Regrettably, I didn’t make my points as clearly as I should have. When I said that I disagreed with Michael about the half-brother, I knew that Michael was trying to make a joke about being half-wrong/half-right, and I do understand the “dictionary definition” of “half-brother”, but Tal-Ro, himself called Superman “brother”, not “half-brother”. I do not have any half-siblings, myself, but my experience of those who do, suggests that, in most cases, half-siblings refer to each other as brothers and sisters. My other point was that Superman shouldn’t have simply accepted what Tal-Ro was telling him, simply because he had powers and spoke Kryptonese. Yes, it did turn out that what he said was true, but at the time, Superman couldn’t know that, and seemed to be taking his story at face value, even though he knew Morgan Edge to be a liar.
    Enough of that. On to “A Brief Reminiscence . . . ”
    This episode was
    very good, I thought. The flashback parts were terrific, and, although I don’t have a shirt rip fetish, I did enjoy that, although I was more excited by the nod to Superman Smashes the Klan, and, through that, to the radio show, as Michael pointed out. I thought the way we saw the development of Clark and Lois’ relationship, both professionally and personally was both heartwarming and more realistically “real life” than has often been shown. That’s one of the things the show gets so right, so often that it’s really become their trademark.
    I agree with you that Superman and Lois (and probably Jonathan and Jordan, and John Henry Irons, and who knows?, maybe Sam Lane) have some continingency pre-arranged for dealing with Tal-Ro and his plans. Superman’s cooperation to save his family makes sense on the surface, but, as I said before, he’s trusting but not gullible, so he can’t expect that Tal will keep his agreement on that point. I’m eager to see how this develops, and it will be torture to have to wait a couple of weeks for the next episode of the show.
    The teaser for the next episode of the podcast, with a special guest, is intriguing and I know I’ll enjoy that.

  2. The weird thing is that I did see your point about the possibility of Edge being a liar and I totally meant to mention that. It was a fair point and I apologize for not addressing it.
