Geekville Radio: Super Bowl Commercials And More

The biggest sporting event of the year is in the history books, as are the many commercials that air specifically during the game. Seth and Crazy Train go over five trailers in particular that caught their eye, all listed here for your convenience.


Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

Stranger Things 2

Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Transformers: The Last Knight

In TV News, The Arrowverse may be getting bigger as CW is reportedly in talks for a Black Lightning show produced by Greg Berlanti.

“This is a swift turnaround for the project, which was shopped to other networks by Warner Bros. TV immediately after Fox opted not to go to pilot, with the CW emerging as the likely new home. I hear Fox brass ultimately decided that the superhero show was not a good fit into its already crowded genre drama space that includes the DC/WBTV series Gotham and Lucifer, Seth MacFarlane’s upcoming space dramedy, and two pilots: the X-Men-themed drama written by Matt Nix and The Passage; all are from 20th TV.”

Also on CW and produced by Berlanti, Riverdale had debuted and is pulling decent numbers.

On the review front, Seth and Train review the NBC sitcom Powerless with differing views. The show had modest numbers, so will it stick around? Especially since the show we got is not the show originally filmed.

“Unlike the episode that aired last night, this version of Powerless was undeniably cute. The story focused on a group of insurance agents who sincerely wanted nothing more than to help troubled people — the result of living in a city where superheroes run rampant and cause unquantifiable levels of damage — get the money they deserve. The team dynamic was apparent, and the group of genuine, caring coworkers was juxtaposed against their new boss, a typical comic book villain who only cares about getting rich, making for a promising setting.”

Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD is back, and once again has hit the ground running. While numbers seem OK, the reception has been very good, averaging 8.5 out of 10 on IMDB. How has the LMD story played out so far? And has Jeffrey Mace won over Train and Seth with his backstory?

In the final segment, Train talks about Marvel’s diversity movement, and what it does for longtime fans. It’s a thought provoking discussion we’d like to hear your thoughts on.
