DC Post-Crisis Management #6: Flashpoint with Jennifer Smith

March 25, 2019

Welcome to DC Post-Crisis Management, a limited monthly series exploring the major Crisis events from 1986 to the present day. Russell Sellers is joined by various guests to explore the meanings, ramifications and quality of the stories while trying not to lose his mind.

As Russell departed House Duke last episode, he received an urgent message from PTBN POP!’s resident queen, Jennifer Smith. She warned him that his mucking around with all these events was causing damage to the time stream and just then the world changed… in a Flash! Now, Russell finds himself in a world that’s familiar but…off. His friends don’t know him, his shows no longer exist, his beloved DC Comics have become a gritty and unrecognizable shadow of their former selves and… who the hell is living in his house?!? He has to find the source of the Flashpoint and restore things to their natural order before he fades away completely.

Kelly and Steve return for more Songs With Friends!  We make our first trek to Motown when we review the 1971 hit "Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)" from The Temptations!  We touch on generational views on marriage, floor model televisions, cowardice, desperation, and the importance of putting yourself in the game.  After a quick break and Steve's updated candy homework assignment, we move onto "Hard to Concentrate," the 2006 Red Hot Chili Peppers song.  Kelly presents this romantic masterpiece while Steve spends the entire segment pointing out that 75 percent of the lyrics are about getting it on.
