Episode 9: Sick Romans and Crusty Jugglers

Episode 9: Sick Romans and Crusty Jugglers

This week is all about meth and misogyny. Fun times, fun times.

  • It’s been a bad week to be into video games and comic books and have a uterus. We’ve had to deal with the new Tomb Raider game “Press X To Not Be Raped”, the staggering hate surrounding the Tropes vs. Women in Video Games project [link], and the laugh-or-you’ll-cry cover to Catwoman #0 [link]. Jet Wolf has thoughts and feelings and she and ladybits are going to tell you all about them.
  • In keeping with tradition, we finished Breaking Bad about a year behind everyone else. With the fifth and final season around the corner, we talk about our impressions of last year’s finale and what we hope to see at the close of this dark and fascinating series. Mostly though Ultrace just really hates Walt. [Warning: spoilers for seasons 1-4 of Breaking Bad.]
  • The Final Round, in which Jet Wolf makes Ultrace cry.

Episode 7: Won’t Somebody Please Hug Chris Traeger?

Episode 7: Won't Somebody Please Hug Chris Traeger?

This week we thought about going with a theme then completely failed to do so. It’s the first of many failures this week, but they’re not all ours. For shame, Walking Dead. For shame.

  • Television is back! Well actually no, it’s nearly summer and all TV is going away, but for us it’s like so totally back! New hardware has flicked a spark at the cold pilot light of our love and we’ve been going through TV shows like a demonic lawnmower grinding through the tall grass of overgrown souls. (That is quite possibly the strangest marriage of imagery I’ve ever written.) We talk about how mass consumption of TV seasons can alter your relationship to the show and how that applies to our recent marathon of The Walking Dead and the long-ago marathon of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Plus we say goodbye for now to Parks & Rec, but it’s never far from our heart.
  • The Avengers has got Mike to thinking, and he has a burning question that can wait no longer: Could Wolverine beat the Hulk? A question this important requires no small amount of thought, and oh, the thought we give it. You will believe a couple can get into way too much detail about how to kill Wolverine.
  • The Final Round, where once again Mike makes a one-off comment that brings the entire thing to a screeching halt. Oh, Mike. (And yes I know we consistently say that one guy’s name wrong, I don’t wanna hear it.)
