Robin Williams's passing hit a lot of us hard. Gary Mitchel is joined fist by Tegan Hendrickson and Michael Falkner, then later by Dan Haight to talk about Robin's career as well as which of his roles, performance and routines were their favourites. They also look at Robin's influence and the fact that he was, apparently, a huge geek. Finally, they spend some time sharing some of the amazing stories about Robin's generosity of spirit that have emerged since his passing.

It's August and Hollywood has blessed us with a popcorn bucket full of movies.  So many, in fact, that this episode has to be broken into two parts.  In this part, our hosts Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel are joined by Tegan Hendrickson, Michael Falkner and Nathan Laws to discuss the movies in the first half of the month. There is a discussion of Ronan's orbs and Deanna shows some serious hate of the Ninja Turtles.

Our theme music this episode is "Cultists On Board" by the Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, courtesy of Divine Industries.  A reminder about our feedback address: revcast@revolutionsf.com.  Should Gary find a new schtick and leave Deanna alone?

In case you missed it, Batgirl recently got a new uniform.  This set our minds thinking about all the issues surrounding superhero uniforms.  Our co-hosts Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mithel discuss the pros and cons with Tegan Hendrickson and Michael Emond. As per usual, it is a wide ranging discussion, including the little known fact that Dr. Manhattan's, ahem, package is patriotic.

Told you Part 2 was coming soon. And here it is.
The first season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the second season of Arrow are entering summer reruns! Which means now is a great time to talk about what each show did right, and what each one did wrong! To do so, RevNews host has gathered together a mix of Clearance Level 8 and Island Survivors to talk about both shows! He's joined by Foremost Flash Fan Shaun Rosado
The nimble Nathan Laws, and newcomer to the show Agent Ryan Guthrie! This group is so knowledgeable, in fact, that the discussion ballooned into a SUPER EPIC FOUR HOUR EPISODE!

Having mercy on your download connections, we've broken things in half. In our second episode, we discuss all things related to our favorite Starling City Archer! Listen in as we do an episodic breakdown of the season; Shaun gets his face melted off; outdoor Arrow vs Indoor S.H.I.E.L.D.; The "Hero vs Vigilante" through-line of the season; good nods to the comics vs bad ones; how the show earned its superpowers; Ollie's ghosts vs Slade's ghosts; The Commissioner Gordon Effect; The Queen family's communication issues; our love of Manu & Amell's acting; subtly vs sledgehammering on a theme and how it's a good time for comics fans on TV.
