News: We report on the huge Marvel Cinematic Universe media event of last week. Upcoming five years of Marvel films were announced. We examine, ponder, speculate, lament, geek out and beat it to death. It’s quite amazing.
All watch “The Flash” and “Arrow”. The most recent episode of “The Flash” has possibly some of the coolest action we have seen on TV in a long time.
Christopher binge-watches “The Blacklist” He has a man crush on James Spader. We agree that’s not weird at all.
Andrew reads “Dune” because all the cool kids are doing it. He also purchases “The World of Ice and Fire”, the illustrations alone are worth the money.
Christopher starts “The Crimson Campaign” by Brian McClellan, book two of “The Powder Mage Trilogy”.
Christopher fires up “World of Warcraft” in anticipation of “The Warlords of Draenor” expansion dropping on 11-13-2014. He has to re-learn some game mechanics. His muscle memory is all “Destiny” and Diablo right now.
All play “Destiny”. We comment on the differences between the Playstation and Xbox expansion packs dropping on 12-9-2014. We continue to discover new aspects of the game.
A Song of Ice and Fire themed this week, Name Five of the Nine Free Cities.
We never have a smooth intro…. or outro….. or show in general.
We track the story of the leak, retraction, and eventual release of the “Avengers: Age of Ultron” trailer.
We dissect it. We geek out. We report of fan theories. We are at the height of our powers.
“Agents of SHIELD” continues to impress. We feel Joss’s fingerprints on the latest episodes. Adrianne Palicki is a very not ugly woman.
“The Flash” is fun and silly and “super hero-y” We delve into his Rogue’s Gallery.
the “Heroes of Olympus” series is read by Andrew. He gets goofed on. His love of Greek Mythology adds to his experience of this children’s book.
Christopher finishes “The Promise of Blood”. The ending is fantastic and second book will be read very soon.
Patrick continues with “Dune”. He reaches the point in the book where the film he is most familiar veers away from the text. It’s jarring. Chris hates the movie.
“Destiny” and more “Destiny”. Andrew reports on his character level-ling status. Christopher and Patrick are impressed how committed Andrew is to the game. Patrick gives details of his latest assault on the Vault of Glass.
the Boys are challenged to name the single highest selling single issue comic book ever. The answer is surprising.
We report on the Apple announcement of the Iphone6, 6Plus and Apple Watch. We establish Christopher likes batteries.
“The Leftovers” Season 1 Finale delivers on multiple levels. Storytelling at its finest. It brings all the Feels.
Andrew is re-watching “Arrow” Season 1 with his lady. She probably has a thing for Stephen Amell.
Christopher and Patrick discuss most recent “Doctor Who”. Mixed feelings all around.
We all slack on “Batman Eternal”
Christopher is through “Iron Fist: The Living Weapon” #6
While reading “Ready Player One” Patrick reflects on his own gamer experience. We feel this is a good thing.
Andrew reads the newest book in the Emberverse series. Its good adventure.
“Destiny” is played by all
Reviews are good to great, Andrew has no idea what he is doing. Just likes shooting stuff.
Chris and Patrick have more nuanced reactions.
Andrew bungles it. The Boys give him appropriate amounts of grief
