We ramble through a bizarre grouping of topics including Stephen Hawking, Mick Foley, Terry Gilliam, Gross People, Stardew Valley, the Legend of Korra, Death Wish, Walker Texas Ranger, Sonic Mania, Monster Hunter, and some other stuff. We also play a trivia game based on movie posters.
We talk random movies (A wrinkle in Time, Christopher Robin, The Guyver), random cartoons (Star Wars Rebels, Voltron, Freakazoid), random TV shows (Jessica Jones, Deadwood), discuss collecting old video games, Rom Hacks, play two rounds of undebeatable, and then play the Rotten Tomatoes game.
We (vaguely) talk Star Wars Rebels, play two different trivia games (one about early D&D items, and the other about the history of video games consoles), and play a weird round of Undebeatable (featuring a Marvel second stringer who is possessed by the spirit of Vengeance and a galactic hero who is from a distant past as well as a distant galaxy.)
This episode is a special clip show collecting the first 8 rounds of our fictional fighting tournament called UNDEBEATABLE, where we childishly discuss who would win in a fight between two randomly selected fictional characters (from movies/comics/video games/television/and more). It's as fun as it is dumb.
The fights include:
Ceasar the Ape Vs. 90's era Lobo
Ash Williams Vs. Shredder
Django Vs. 70's TV Version of Captain America
The T-Rex from Jurassic Park Vs. Furiosa
John Constantine Vs. Frankenstein's Monster From Hell
Venom Vs. Thunderlips the Ultimate Male
Sinestro Vs. The Predator
Swamp Thing Vs. King Leonidas
We talk Gotham (as in By Gaslight / the show Gotham / and a themed Masquerade ball), Star Wars Rebels, Black Panther (no spoilers), conspiracy theorists, and some other stuff. We play TWO rounds of Undebeatable (the first featuring two "Real Americans" [albeit one's from space], and the second pitting an Amazonian princess against a really lucky architect) and then play a game that involves the Incredible Hulk Television show from 1978.
Here's the HULK OUT list that Tommy is referencing in the latter part of the episode.
We talk Injustice 2, DC comics, movies (The Cloverfield Paradox / A Stupid and Futile Gesture, Voyeur), TV Shows, and Silver RavenWolf. Then we play a round of Undebeatable (featuring two very different intergalactic murder machines) followed by a game based around upcoming remakes and sequels.
We read a weird old DC comic, play a round of Undebeatable (Featuring a sentient plant monster and an ancient Warrior King), and then play a game based on Rotten Tomatoes reviews.
Dungeons & Dragons is something that I’ve had a relationship with since I was a little kid. My older brothers both played, so I was around it from the time I was old enough to read. The amount of time I’ve spent reading D&D rulebooks, especially the Monster Manual and its ilk, is almost embarrassing. To this day, I could probably quote most of the rules for 2nd Edition from memory. Thing is, none of my childhood friends ever actually wanted to play.
I managed to sporadically play in college, but the longest-running D&D game I’ve ever been a part of is a 5th Edition campaign that started in December of 2017. At the time of this writing, this campaign is about 8 sessions old. My players are The Wife, Some Guy Named Greg, and our friend Jordan. I, Skippy, am the Dungeon Master.
We have fun…mostly.Read More
The 1974 concept album "The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper's Feast" featured Ronnie James Dio on a couple tracks and also spawned this animated short that ran several times in Europe.
Some people talk about Hellboy, some people talk about gun control, and then they all talk about Sinestro for a while. I don't know what else to write here.
A composer for horror films and a guitar maker join forces to create a new instrument.
I don't know what this show is, but a Mario Maker stage in this video (go to 19:20 if the embed doesn't start there automatically) made me laugh out loud. Keep in mind that to upload a level you have to be able to beat it yourself.
We talk about TV shows including Star Wars Rebels, The Keepers, Making a Murderer, Black Lightning, Punisher, Iron Fist, Walking Dead, The Toys That Made Us, and even more. We also touch on The Post, the Venom movie, and both Marvel and DC comics including Wolverine, The Atomic Knights, and the War That Time Forgot.
A year in preview for the movies of 2018. We discuss what's coming out and make predictions. Before that we play a round of Undebeatable and also talk weird dreams, Mary Roach, Lego, Star Wars comics, trades vs. Omnibus, and a lot more.
Recorded on New Years Eve, we talk residual Star Wars feelings, comic books, Game of Thrones, Dungeons & Dragons, The Shape of Water, as well as a round of undebeatable (featuring an iconic 90's movie monster and a post-apocalyptic one-armed warrior). The last half of the show is spent discussing and comparing the on-screen kill counts for several action stars. Credit to the blog All Outta Bubblegum for most of the stats we used.
In the second and last SANTACLYSM of 2017 we review two obscure Canadian animated specials. The first, A Cosmic Christmas (1977), is about 3 Magi from space and is probably one of the worst specials we've ever watched. The second, Christopher the Christmas Tree (1993), is about a really dumb tree who is both too small and too big to be a Christmas tree. It is also terrible, but the result is probably one of the funniest reviews we've done. Merry Christmas!
