Due to serious illness befalling the Chief Couch Potato (and only editor) at CPU!, we are preempting the planned episode and are re-running this episode (it’s like we think we’re actually TV or something), the most recent from our DCTU panel, which is about to embark upon a marathon of recaps covering “Legends of Tomorrow,” “Supergirl,” “The Flash,” and “Arrow.” Plus, if you didn’t already know, these same five panelists also comprise our Marvel’s Defenders panel, and, lo, they need to get to chatting about Marvel’s Defenders, as in the actual crossover miniseries. So, they have some business coming up, which is all fine and good, because the Chief CP is dealing with the grossness of ill health. Seriously, you do NOT want to know the gory details.

In this March 2017 episode of Couch Potatoes Unite!, which is based on a blog of the same name hosted at, our cheeky and feisty and newly full DCTU panel was subjected to (now for) something completely different and highly experimental here at CPU! Because it was difficult to get everyone together during the mid-season hiatuses (hiati?) due to holidays and jobs and families and a penchant for community theater on this panel, we decided to check in with each other in advance of season’s end–when we would visit each show’s current season in four episodes, one for each show. This episode is cobbled together in a bit of a different format for this mid-season roundup of all four shows at once. To wit, your main moderator and Chief CP met with each panelist individually to obtain his/her current, sometimes cursory, assessment of the progress of Season Five of Arrow, Season Three of The Flash, and Season Two of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl. Also, because of the separation and the splicing together of individual interviews, Kylie decided to play a tricksy hobbitses version–Couch Potatoes Unite!’s version–of “The Newlywed Game.” Just how well do our nerdiest panel contributors know each other? And how would they anticipate their responses to some key questions and potential opinions concerning our favorite current four show TV universe? Take a listen and see.

The episode segments were recorded with our newly full DC Television Universe or DCTU panel – including moderator Kylie, Hilary, Kyle, Spencer, Kristen, and adding (for the first time) frequent CPU! panelist Nick – in February and in March 2017 for this, our sixth episode of our DCTU ongoing series.
