One-Shot #19: Beginning to Converge

Blake is back! After a short discussion of his absence, and a sincere thank-you to those who helped raise his spirits during his hospital stay, we get into the first week of DC’s Convergence event. What happens when the heroes of DC’s pre-Flashpoint universe encounter those from other worlds? Wally West! A pregnant Lois Lane! Captain Carrot! There’s good stuff here, guys.

And what’s cool this week? Only two episodes in, Blake is totally won over by Marvel’s first Netflix series, Daredevil.

And how does the new NetFlix regeneration of Arrested Development stack up to the old stuff?
