Welcome to Season 4!
Welcome to Season 4 of Running on Rooftops. If this is your first
episode, Darryl and Phil are two guys that enjoy comic books and
the media they are adapted to. We will be here every week to rate
and review comic book tv shows and movies. There's a lot of
new events ahead that we will cover this year, like Gifted,
the Justice League movie and the CW four-way crossover "Crisis on
Earth X". We are a spoiler-filled podcast, meaning we like to
discuss the source materials for the shows we cover. So be warned,
and feel free to skip around. In this episode, we cover the
two-part premiere of the new ABC Series Marvel's Inhumans, and
the first 2 episodes of Gotham season 4
This show raises a lot of questions. The biggest question being:
why should we care about the Inhuman Royal Family? Something just
seems off about the show, but I can see them trying to build to
something epic. Overall, it does not quite meet the expectations
for a show that premiered in IMAX theatres.
It is hard to deny how cool it was to see both Selena and Bruce
fighting in the streets, and seeing Bruce's costume evolve was a
highlight. For the villains, Penguins crime licenses are
amazingly stupid but straight out of a comic book. As for
Scarecrow. He's really off looking, and scythe doesn't look sharp,
but it's a good, not so high-level villain to face. In addition,
the mob element was a highlight of season 1, so it's great to see
Falcone may return Sadly, Barbara's return is tiring and the lack
of spine for the cops was frustrating. It feels like the GCPD goes
from corrupt to clean every few seasons, but it's a good place for
Jim to come in as the commissioner he needs to be.
We cover Fox's new show in the X-Men universe "The Gifted"
