This week we riff on invisibility for reasons unknown before we get into the new anthology series Bitch Planet: Triple Feature (21:51) and the last two episodes of the first season of American Gods (36:20).
The power couple discusses news out of San Diego Comic Con, mostly the trailers for the upcoming Wonder Woman (2:18) and Justice League (4:06) movies. We also talk about some of the Marvel stuff (7:38), from Captain Marvel to Thor: Ragnarok to Marvel on Netflix. We then jump to Bo Burnham's new comedy special on Netflix (14:31), the last two episodes from season six of Game of Thrones (12:25), Pokemon Go (14:31), and Star Trek Beyond (16:23). After that we dive into the new Netflix series Stranger Things (19:03), a fantastic new show created by the Duffer Brothers, with a great cast that includes Winona Ryder, David Harbour, and many more. Finally, we talk volume one of Monstress, a series from Image Comics written by Marjorie Liu with art by Sana Takeda (28:53).
The power couple committed to two things this week: Batman v Superman and the entire second season of DareDevil. Both were glorious and we discuss them in this episode.
The power couple discusses the world of comics with Pretty Deadly, Doctor Strange, and Batman. In television we're out on The People vs. OJ Simpson and in on The Leftovers, Veep, and The Batchelor. For movies we watched Kung Fu Panda 3, Magic Mike, The Visit, and the first half of Sicario. Instead of talking about podcasts we talked about some podcasts advertisers we are either trying or interested in, like Headspace and The Great Courses Plus. We also hit on the SuperBowl and Valentine's Day.
The power couple discusses the first issue of DC Comics (post-Convergence) Constantine: The Hellblazer, written by Ming Doyle and James Tynion IV with art by Riley Rossmo. We have been looking forward to this one for a while, and it did not disappoint. We also talk about one of our favorite ongoing series, also from DC Comics, Gotham Academy. Written by Brenden Fletcher and Becky Cloonan with art by Karl Kerschl, the distinct style and fun characters of Gotham Academy set it apart. Charlene's Notable this week is the app game Slayin (even though she called it Slayer) from FDG Entertainment. Eamon's Notable is an upcoming series from Image Comics, Tokyo Ghost, written by Rick Remender with art by Sean Murphy.
The first of a shorter brand of episode, in which the power couple discusses some new trailers that have been recently released. Lots of excitement in our house following multiple viewings of the trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Fantastic Four, and Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. We discuss our thoughts on each here!
It's our first bonus episode! The power couple deviates from the norm for Episode 8, briefly discussing the newly released X-Men: Days of Future Past movie, and then moving on to a battle of the wits. It is our first quiz show, featuring questions from the DC Universe and some questionably titled B movies. Check it our here, on iTunes, and on Stitcher.
