After a long hiatus, Desiree, Britney, and Keith are back to talk about where they've been for the last few months. They also catch up on all the DC Universe updates, now that the app is finally live, and break down what the (potential) departure of Henry Cavill from the film franchise means for the future -- and whether this maybe opens up the possibility of a Smallville movie? That is, if Michael Rosenbaum gets his way!

When DC Entertainment finally released details about their new streaming service -- dubbed DC Universe -- the Classics Crew was ready for it. Aside from the four shows announced, there was little news about which legacy content, if any, would be included. So Keith, Britney, and Nick got together to speculate about which Classic shows they'd like to see on the service. In addition to certain shows like Smallville, Batman 66, and Wonder Woman, the Crew would also like to see the return of the animated DC Nation block that used to appear on Cartoon Network, a "Turner Classic Movies" approach that features classic superhero films in the Warner Bros. catalog, and an option to view failed pilots that never aired. The Crew also makes a pitch for an in-studio version of the podcast!

Last weekend at Awesome Con in Washington D.C., Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum made some news regarding their willingness to return to the characters that made them famous. Oh, and Keith was there too! Speaking of Smallville, Kristin Kreuk is making a return to The CW, while some crazy news regarding Allison Mack also came out recently as well. So it's safe to say Chloe may not be coming back to Smallville. Either way, Smallville superfans Keith and Desiree break down all the strange things happening in their favorite leafy little hamlet on a brand new DC TV Classics, including the fact that they attended the same convention 12 years ago!

With the recent announcement that Nicholas Cage will finally get to play Superman in Teen Titans Go to the Movies -- after almost playing the Man of Steel in Tim Burton's aborted Superman Lives project -- it got us thinking about how some of our favorite actors came thisclose to being our favorite super heroes. From Jensen Ackles as Clark Kent to Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman and Armie Hammer as Batman, the Classics crew -- Keith, Britney, Nick, and Desiree -- think about what might have been when it comes to DC's pantheon of heroes.

Since Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment has announced Metropolis, a new series for its streaming service featuring Lois Lane in a leading role, the Classics Crew has assembled to recount the most iconic Lois moments in DC TV history. Lois Lane has been an integral part of the Superman mythos since its inception, and many actresses have portrayed the icon over the years -- from Phyllis Coates and Noel Neill to Margot Kidder and Teri Hatcher to Erica Durance and Amy Adams. Keith, Desiree, and Nick share stories of their favorite Lois Lanes and why the character has endured for so many decades and deserves to be part of the upper echelon of DC Comics.

A rumor has surfaced that the Man of Steel himself, Henry Cavill, could have a role in the upcoming Shazam movie starring Zachary Levi. This got the Classics crew thinking about the fan favorite Justice League Unlimited episode written by Dwayne McDuffie, "Clash" which features the first encounter between Superman and Captain Marvel in the animated universe. To break down the episode, special guest -- and Justice League Unlimited super fan -- Rebecca Theodore-Vachon makes her debut on DC TV Classics to talk about all the reasons she loves the animated universe, what makes Superman and Shazam such great characters, and why The Rock is the perfect choice to play Black Adam in a future movie.

Recently, leaked photos revealed that Mattel is working on Multiverse action figures for the classic Wonder Woman and Flash television series as well as the Val Kilmer Batman from Batman Forever. Naturally, this led to a discussion about everyone's favorite classic DC TV-related toy line. Keith, Britney, and Nick welcome veteran toy journalist Luke Brown to talk about the long history of toys spun out of classic DC shows like Batman '66 and the Animated Series -- from the unfortunate to the awesome. Later, the crew shares some of their favorite DC toys, including Lego's massive 1966 Batcave, which you can send to Nick, if you find one.

It's the most wonderful time of the year! So DC TV Classics decided to break down one of the most iconic episodes in the history of Batman: The Animated Series. "Christmas with the Joker" was the second episode produced (though not the second one aired) and represents the first time Mark Hamill ever voiced the villainous Mr. J. With the release of Hamill's new movie -- a tiny indie called Star Wars: The Last Jedi -- the crew wanted to honor his take on the character. To get in the holiday spirit, Britney, Desiree, Nick, and Keith recap the episode's plot, explain why sassy Bat family is the best Bat family, and break down the history of the Batman/Joker relationship.

Twenty years before Justice League fizzled at the box office, another Justice League... failed spectacularly on DC TV. In 1997, CBS commissioned a pilot for a Justice League series that never went to air in the United States. Instead, bootleg copies circulated for years on the convention circuit as a curio for collectors, akin to Roger Corman's infamous Fantastic Four movie.

The movie starred Matthew Settle as Green Lantern, Kimberly Oja as Ice, John Kassir as The Atom, Michelle Hurd as Fire, Kenny Johnston as The Flash, and David Ogden Stiers as Martian Manhunter, as the members of the JLA. And the Classics Crew dug up an old copy and watched it, so you don't have to!

Before breaking down the CBS Justice League of America TV movie, the gang also give their thoughts on the current incarnation of the Justice League and ultimately compare the 1997 version to its 2017 counterpart.

With Justice League burning up the box office, we've united the Classics Crew to share their favorite Justice League-related moments in DC TV history.

Nick recounts the time Lex Luthor and The Flash switched bodies -- which was very meta, considering Michael Rosenbaum has played both characters. Britney revisits the Christmas-themed "Comfort and Joy" episode and Desiree shouts out the Double Date episode with Green Arrow, Black Canary, The Question and Huntress. Finally, Keith brings up Smallville (again) and special guest Dr. Andrea Letamendi -- from the Arkham Sessions podcast -- remembers the classic JLU episode "Epilogue."

Later, she helps us break down the psychology of Batman and why superheroes matter to us so much, a topic she has discussed in her very own Ted Talk.

On October 16, 2001, Smallville debuted on The WB and redefined superhero television. Starring Tom Welling as Clark Kent, Kristin Kreuk as Lana Lang, and Michael Rosenbaum as Lex Luthor, Smallville told the story of Superman in his teenage years and became the template for the current slate of DC TV. To celebrate the 16th anniversary of the show's debut, the entire Classics team of Keith, Britney, Desiree and Nick is reunited to break down the events of the Smallville Pilot.

Keith also takes time to speak with Craig Byrne, the founder of the preeminent Smallville fansite Kryptonsite, about the show's enduring legacy, and the crew talks about some of the news coming out of New York Comic-Con, including Desiree's promotion to Editor at Lion Forge Comics, the blu-ray releases of Batman: The Animated Series and the long awaited extended television cut of Superman: The Movie.

President Obama's chief speechwriter Cody Keenan is probably the biggest DC Comics fanboy in the history of the White House, and he joins Keith for a special one-on-one conversation about heroism and the need for Hope and Optimism in the DC Universe.

Cody talks about how Superman came to be his favorite hero, why Clancy Brown is the best Lex Luthor, seeing his hometown Chicago get turned into Gotham and Metropolis, and why you can't separate social justice from superhero stories. They also discuss President Obama's Nerd of Color credentials and go on a brief tangent about sportsball (sorry).

On DC TV Classics, Britney returns to join Keith as they catch up on some of the big news of the past few weeks.

Then, they discuss Supergirl's penchant for casting alumni of other DC shows with the reveal that animated Justice League Martian Manhunter, Carl Lumbly, will be joining the show. They also talk about the iconic voice talent of the animated DC Universe and why we'll all miss casting director Andrea Romano who just announced her retirement. There's also a digression about the celebrities who tweet with Britney and pineapples on pizza, because this is the internet.
