    Flame ON! is the all-gay, all-geek podcast. Tune in as we dish on the latest in pop and queer culture.

    Billy? Tommy? Is that you? Reed, Charles, Blackagar? Where are we? This must be another dimension, but what is this madness? Whether the Scarlet Witch is dreamwalking through dimensions or snapping the necks and destroying the Illuminati, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will never be the same… and one thing is for certain, that’s for the best!

    Pat, Bryan, and BeeJay have congregated at the nexus of all realities to track down Doctor Strange. Or maybe they’re looking for Protector Strange. But could it actually be Sinister Strange that is pulling the strings? The only thing that is for certain is that they are ready to kick star shaped portals through the multiverse and end this madness once and for all. They kick off this episode chatting about their highlights from the 28th entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. From Sam Raimi’s signature filmmaking tropes and horror, to the queer representation of America Chavez (regardless of whether it went far enough or not), to the musical battle that tickled Pat in all the right ways, this movie had some great things going for it. From there they tackle the things they wished they could have changed about this film from the pacing, to the tonal shifts, to maybe reducing some character’s screen time, they don’t hold back how they felt. The last round of conversation focuses on conjecture and speculation about where this leaves Doctor Strange and Wanda and what they would like to see come down the line in the rest of phase four and beyond. Did the boys feel the same way as you, or did the madness kick in and they got it all wrong? Listen in and then share your opinion in the comments!
