The Superhero Show Show #394

Y: Finally, the Last Man


Y — CR: Macall Polay/FX

It’s Y: The Last Man, plus the start of the Bracket 400, on an all-new Superhero Show Show!

On an all-new episode of The Superhero Show Show, Cassie is away, so the Boyz will play! Play the game of “perfect podcasting” that is! This is far too important of an episode to mess around with, so Mike and Ryan mind their manners and get the job done. The main focus is on Y: The Last Man finally coming to FX on Hulu! Mike and Ryan watch the first two episodes of the series. Does it live up to their lofty expectations? Did this survive past all of the other attempts at making the show because this is the one that got it right? And how could they possibly be in the mood for another show that takes place after a pandemic? Tune in to see if this show actually came out, much less if it’s any good.

But before that, the Taste Buds begin the Bracket 400! Celebrating the podcast’s 400th episode, The Superhero Show Show is putting all 64 shows they have reviewed since the podcast’s inception, to figure out what is the single greatest show of their 8-year run! On today’s episode, they’re doing the horror division. Horror has definitely been the second biggest genre of comic book-based television, after superheroes, and on this episode, Mike and Ryan (and Cassie, from afar) will take their list of 16 down to 8. Make sure to listen to each episode through the 400th to find out what is the greatest television show of the Superhero Show Show era!

All of that, plus reviews and discussions on the rest of the shows that came out this week, including Stargirl, Riverdale, Titans, What If…?, Supergirl, and horror entrants Lucifer and The Walking Dead! It’s almost too much show!
