J.J. Abrams and Dan Trachtenberg snuck out a spin-off to the 2008 film Cloverfield, and this week, the Showcasers take a look at it. In a brief, spoiler-free discussion, the crew tells you if it’s worth your time.
And what’s cool this week? Jason enjoyed Season 1 of NBC’s Superstore, Erin is reading Stephen King’s Bazaar of Bad Dreams, the second season of The Flash continues to impress Kenny, and Blake is hoping against hope for a second season of The Muppets.
This week Blake and Erin sit down to talk about the big news from Lucasfilm — J.J. Abrams to direct Star Wars Episode VII. We explain why we’re cautiously optimistic about this development before we get into other comic-to-screen news, including the end of the Chew TV show, the cancellations of Young Justice and Green Lantern, developments for Man of Steel and X-Men: Days of Future Past and more. Plus, we talk about DC’s Black History Month sales through Comixology, and Blake tosses a pick at Avengers #4 Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!

It’s the number one movie in the country, and it’s setting franchise records all over, but the question everyone from Hollywood to the Klingon Empire has been asking is: what do the 2 in 1 Showcase geeks think of the new Star Trek movie? This week you get two reviews in one! First up, Blake, Mike, Kenny and Daniel give you a perspective from the moderate fans of the series. Then, buckle up as Chase flies solo on the hardcore fan’s opinion.
