In this episode, Anthony and J. R. have a somewhat random group of topics. They are talking about some things they like and dislike regarding movies and tv shows. Sometimes those opinions follow the norms, sometimes they don’t. They also discuss our thoughts regarding blog entries we right. And Jacob’s “Better Know an X-Man” features the Stepford Cuckoos.
In this episode, we get animated. Well, there’s no video, so we’re not technically animated. But we are discussing some things that are animated. We talk briefly about our favorite childhood cartoons, and then have a discussion about a couple DC Comics Animated movies: Justice League Dark and Batman Assault on Arkham.
Let me start out by saying that I have never, ever read an Archie comic book before. I have no idea what is contained within those pages. I was always under the impression that Archie was a pretty lighthearted series, but have not seen any real evidence of that. Sure, I am aware of the characters. Could easily recognize them as they debuted in the show, but did not have any base of characterization to judge what I was seeing.
Adding to this lack of knowledge about the source material, I did not watch any previews for Riverdale. So, I really had no idea what I was in for when I started this episode. I give this info because I think context is important with reviews. Someone that is an avid Archie fan may have a different opinion about this episode than myself. But for myself, I was pretty surprised by what I saw. Spoilers ahead. (more…)
In this episode, we discuss what we look for when we start a story, be a book, television, comic, or movie series. We specifically discuss the recently released Hawkeye #1, having Anthony take a look at it since he has never read a Hawkeye comic before and has no idea who Kate Bishop is. We also do a little bit of year end wrap up, and something we’re looking forward to in 2017.
In this episode, I discuss my thoughts on Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition, Netflix’s Jessica Jones, and Star Trek Beyond. I then discuss the perils of getting too immersed in every detail and rumor related to your interests.
In this episode, I share my thoughts on the previous seasons of The Walking Dead, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow, and The Flash.
At Star Wars Celebration this past weekend, Disney released the trailer for season 3 of Star Wars Rebels. If you haven’t watched the show, I encourage you to watch it. Actually, I encourage you to watch the Clone Wars series, and then watch Rebels. Season 2 had a phenomenal finale, and it really is doing a good job of connecting the Clone Wars and the Republic trilogy (Ep 1-3) with the Rebellion trilogy (Ep 4-6). I will say that if you haven’t watched the show, this will spoil some things in the previous 2 seasons.
