Episode 11: The Great Batsby & The Spectacular Spider-Bartlet

Episode 11: The Great Batsby & The Spectacular Spider-Bartlet

It’s a comic booky-y kind of summer, and our excited little butts go into excited little seats for two movies that leave us feeling not quite as excited as we started. It’s Jet Wolf & Ultrace versus The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises, with some bonus swearing at NBC!

  • We first tackle The Amazing Spider-Man, wrestling it to the ground and beating it with rocks. Mike is a professional adult and was nearly brought to tears, this movie upset him so. He works through some issues (by which I mean he doesn’t really work through anything at all) and is only too happy to tell you exactly why he hates everything about this movie. Except for Gwen Stacy. And Uncle Ben. And Aunt May. Okay, so it’s sort of only Spider-Man we hate, but you have to admit that’s a bit of a problem for a film called Spider-Man. [Beware Spoilers]

  • The Dark Knight Rises is also put against the post and offered a final cigarette. Two hours and forty minutes? Really, Christopher Nolan? Really? [Beware Spoilers]
    [00:33:22 – 00:57:55]
  • It’s Olympic time, and Nikki could not possibly be more excited. Unless, of course, the property went into the hands of absolutely anybody not NBC. We talk about the ridiculous idea that in 2012 we still can’t see things live, and old wounds are poked with dirty sticks. Seriously, just fuck everything about Jerry Seinfeld.
    [00:58:02 – 01:09:57]
  • The Final Round, where we manage to have the most difficult question ever alongside the easiest.

Episode 10: We Don’t Have Much to Say (A 90 Minute Podcast)

Episode 10: We Don't Have Much to Say (A 90 Minute Podcast)

It’s our first Listener’s Choice show! All the topics were suggested by YOU, the Listener, so you’ve only yourselves to blame. This was done entirely in the spirit of audience participation and not at all because we have no idea what’s going on out there.

  • Once again Marvel is pissing us off, and despite claims of not going into it, Jet Wolf still somehow manages to not shut up. Turns out we both really hate Avengers vs. X-Men, but become oddly apathetic to the latest round of cancellations. We talk about characters and how to completely ignore them, how much Nikki loves Mike Carey, and even a bit about the speculator market which must still be out there ruining it for the rest of us.
    [00:00:38 – 00:37:18]
  • Sailor Moon is returning! How do we feel about that? Mostly just passingly curious, but then the conversation turns to the anime we used to love and enthusiasm heightens. Bubblegum Crisis? You’ll be surprised/horrified by what Mike would do to get the series on blu-ray.
    [00:37:26 – 00:56:30]
  • Someone wanted to know who our favourite classic wrestlers were, and Nikki answers but with no small amount of shame. We quickly move to something much more interesting: exactly how incredibly awesome was Macho Man Randy Savage? ANSWER: So incredibly fucking awesome. HE’S STILL GOT THIS.
    [00:56:37 – 01:15:34]
  • The Final Round, where we go off on a tangent about Disney shorts vs. Warner Brothers shorts, and Mike is reduced to tears. Always the mark of a successful segment.
