We talk about Pacific Rim: Uprising, Jessica Jones, the bizarre fandom of modern Sonic games, and more. We play 2 games (one inspired by the previously mentioned Sonic fandom, and the other inspired by the last lines of movie characters), and play the final round (of the first 16 rounds) of Undebeatable. I meant to name this episode "A Shared Stroke" but I forgot and it's too late now.
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 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.
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.
We do an absurdly long (and spoiler filled) in-depth discussion about Star Wars: The Last Jedi that was recorded on the weekend of the film's release. Before that we play a brief game about Christmas movies and then a long round of Undebeatable. The Last Jedi discussion starts at Minute 46.
Episode Synopsis: Joe, Tommy, and Josh discuss the 2009 film Star Trek. This was the first episode (basically a test episode) of the show and features a re-done intro explaining how the podcast came into existence. The actual episode is fairly low quality. I've got a feeling that this episode is overflowing with inacuracies, so if you're looking for an in-depth podcast about Star Trek you may not want to try this one (check out Mission Log at Nerdist.com). Also, if you are new to the show please don't start here.
