Errata for Episode 12: Sidekicks:
Comics Code History: By the early 2000s, publishers bypassed the CCA and Marvel Comics abandoned it in 2001. By 2010, only three major publishers still adhered to it: DC Comics, Archie Comics, and Bongo Comics. Bongo broke with the CCA in 2010. DC and Archie followed in January 2011, rendering the Code completely defunct today.
Green Hornet: The character debuted in The Green Hornet, an American radio program that premiered on January 31, 1936, on WXYZ, the same local Detroit station that originated its companion shows The Lone Ranger:
New Green Hornet movie Kato is played by: Jay Chou (Dom was correct)
Elementary: Is still on going into 5th season: Watson is not a love interest
Bucky Actor: Sebatian Stan
