Another Week, another Netflix Show. If we tried to do every Netflix show that aired, we'd have to go twice weekly (Hire us Netflix, we'll do it!!!)

This week is Altered Carbon, Netflix's foray into high budget hard scifi. Talking about it we learn a bit about where both Chris's and Steve's fandoms begin and end, and how and why they cross over with some surprising things.

We also discuss a bit of history on this showrunner, Steve gets excited for a movie he never heard of before and we do crossovers and 30 second pitches!

While everyone else is nerding out about Black Panther this week, Steve and Chris are all in on Black Lightning.

We bring some our deepest comic book knowledge to the table to discuss how the show connects with it's printed history and where it deviates. We talk about how this show feels different from the rest of the ArrowVerse and debate whether and how it might connect.

Also, what kind of pitch do you do when you've already done 30 second pitches for so many comic book shows.

It's not just the 33rd episode, it's our One Year Anniversary!

So, we're celebrating by going off topic from the start and discussing The Cat in The Hat Comes Back.

And after that brief interlude we take a look back and talk about a few of our first 11 shows, then do some quick hits on every episode from 12-32.

Then we take some time to discuss some shows we've watched, but for various reasons never did an episode on: Chris Discusses:Inhumans (Finally), Ghosted, Electric Dreams, Big Little Lies, American Vandal, The Ranch, Fuller House, Black Mirror

While Steve takes a look at: 9JKL, LA 2 Vegas, WWE Mixed Match Challenge, Hot Shoots and The Jellies on Adult Swim, and He finally watches BoJack Horseman!

We also both discuss "End of the F*ing World.

Enjoy, and thank you for making our first year great!

This week you get a double dose of Steve and Chris.

First we take on Comedy Central's semi-successor to Workaholics: "Corporate". Will it's dark tone divide steve and Chris?

Then Alone together. We take on this new Freeform comedy from Little Esther and friends, and we explore it's origins in a made for the web, independently produced pilot.

All this, and 30 second pitches, crossovers and more. On the Episode One Podcast!
