Episode Sixty Five: Chris doesn’t watch horror movies, He lives them.
Happy Halloween everyone! Our episode is sppooooookkkkeyyy. Except not at all, unless you count Christopher’s harrowing tale of Halloween of 2015. We discuss the announcement that Penny Dreadful will continue on in an upcoming comic book series. You’ll likely recall from a previous podcast episode that we had issues with the series finale, like major issues. We wander into a discussion of violence on television as Chris and Andrew tell Patrick about the new season of The Walking Dead. Christopher sings the praises of a comic book series written by Marjorie Liu and drawn by Sana Takeda called Monstress. He insists Andrew and Patrick read it. We all play more Destiny: Rise of Iron. We report on the goofy fun of Festival of the Lost, wishing there was a little more THERE, there.
Trivia is horror movie themed. We are not horror movie people.
He has been the only man to consistently win our Podcast’s esteemed “Not Ugly” award week after week and now he has his own series on Netflix. We discuss our long affection for the character, the cultural depth of a superhero show set in Harlem, New York, and flaws inherent with a story about a bulletproof man everyone keeps shooting with guns. Our conversation covers nearly all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe on television and we express our high hopes for the next series premiering on 03/17/2017, Iron Fist.
We really miss each other so we talk, a lot. Patrick tells stories of the set of an actual movie you will soon hear about it. We all watch Luke Cage and decide, spontaneously, to record a One Shot about it. We are all current on Westworld. It’s effed up. like VERY effed up, but we are totally engrossed. Andrew reads the greatest comic book in the universe written byRobert Kirkman. Patrick completes book three of The Expanse. The Brothersgeek Fireteam returns as Destiny: Rise of Iron brings Patrick back to the game. Trivia is pod-cast themed, not ours but other pod-casts recorded by people who aren’t us.
We get honest, and random, and randomer in this episode. Christopher and Andrew admit a sad truth about podcasting. We celebrate the comedic genius of the great Gene Wilder. We recognize a recent achievement by a gaming community and Christopher has high hopes of an upcoming expansion for the Addiction Machine, I mean, “World of Warcraft”. Andrew watches an all-time film-making classic “Seven Samurai” and is mostly better for it. Patrick slows down on “Abbadon’s Gate” and Chris says the tragic “B” word about a comic book we all expected to be stellar.
Trivia this episode is Olympic themed. Remember when those happened?
We make our mother so so proud this episode. We are so civil and get along so well. We don’t raise our voices or disagree at all. Nope, none of that, like at all.
We report on George RR Martin’s new TV deal. We have high hopes. We lament, as always, that Game of Thrones will be coming to an end.
We all saw Suicide Squad. We all feel certain ways about it.
At this point, Chris is going to forcefully hold us down to make sure we watch Brain Dead. Andrew and Christopher are going to assemble a table read for Harry Potter and The Cursed Child. We all discuss the impending release of No Man’s Sky. Those of us who are PC gamers will likely be downloading it in the near future, if it’s remotely good.
Trivia is Harry Potter themed. The Boys are smart enough to almost logic out the answer.
Episode Sixty: Grasping in the Dark, and not just for Pokemon
There is lots of love in this episode. Love for movie trailers, love for remakes, love for unreliable narrators, brotherly love, and oddly enough, love for tiny mythical animals.
We all comment on the behind the scenes video released last week for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The countdown to that film starts right now. Let me just do some math first…
Patrick recommends the Netflix original series, Stranger Things. It’s scary and engrossing and pushes his nostalgia button in a big way. Andrew feels all the rock music geek feels for Showtime’s Roadies and Chris saw the new Ghostbusters. NEWS FLASH: This movie is funny!
Episode Fifty Nine: Our Ultimate Edition is Ultimate
Recorded July 6th
Not trying to brag, but we sound awesome this episode. Crispy and clean and oh so fresh. We talk news of upcoming trailers for a highly anticipated film in a little franchise called “Star Wars”. Did I spell that right? Andrew can’t say enough good things about “Power Man and Iron Fist” #4. Patrick and Chris download the digital “Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition” and surprise, surprise actually love it! Patrick discusses the new completive mode in “Overwatch” The Grind is about to get super real. Our trivia is Pixar themed. And it’s a failure.
Episode Fifty Eight: Winter has come, at last
Crunchytown population us this episode. But we soldier on!
We spend almost 30 minutes on the “Game of Thrones” season 6 finale and it is totally worth it. If you want spoilers, listen, if you don’t, watch the episode and come back to us. Christopher sings the praises of an epic fantasy novel, Patrick finishes a mediocre thriller, and Andrew re-visits the Holy Grail. We all play board games together, some of them are more complicated than others.
Trivia is “Star Trek” themed, thanks for the suggestion Smiley Aria of Dames Playing Games.
It is the most successful entertainment property in the world. If you don’t know what that means, neither do we. We talk in depth and at length about two brothers long history and deep love of “World of Warcraft” and examine one brother’s near total ignorance of it. And when all that is done, we actually talk about the movie. Our reactions are as varied as they have ever been about a movie we have discussed. Let us know what you think.
Hey, it’s only been a month! Aren’t you proud of us?! Chris and Andrew get this episode off and running with an energetic and comprehensive review of Phoenix Comicon. Andrew does a Comicon Carry and makes new friends. Chris continues to indoctrinate his daughters into the geek way of life. We couldn’t have more love for Penny Dreadful if we were being bribed by the producers. Andrew scratches the “A Song of Ice and Fire” itch with a novella by GRRM. Chris and Andrew recommend Patrick get caught up with The Expanse. Patrick and Chris detail their love of Overwatch with enthusiastic detail; so much so Andrew can’t even make fun of them for it. The Trivia question goes down the rabbit hole of classic arcade gaming and the answers surprise us all.
