This week is Black Panther week! First we talked about the Swamp Thing: Winter Special (9:22), then hit on some Netflix sci-fi with The Cloverfield Paradox (19:17) and Altered Carbon (24:37), and finish it out with Black Panther (29:31).
This week's episode covers the new Vertigo book Imaginary Fiends, from Tim Seeley and Stephen Molnar (4:28), the Netflix series Dark (11:10), and the latest movie from Paul Thomas Anderson, Phantom Thread (18:11).
The power couple discusses the new Ghostbusters trailer and other movie stuff, including Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Children of the Corn. In comics we talk the new Black Widow series and Descender. For tv consumed this week we really enjoyed Last Week Tonight, 11.22.63, Veep, The Fall, and The Bachelor. We also talk about some other podcasts like Serial, Stuff You Should Know, and Sources Say. We close it all out with Girl Scout cookies... get 'em while you can!
The power couple discusses the second trailer released for season 2 of DareDevil and briefly talk about Spectre, the latest Bond movie that was just released for home viewing. A lot of tv talk for this week as we cover the season finale for X-Files, the second episode of 11.22.63, The Bachelor, and Unreal. A couple of new podcasts include the Minimalists and The Podcast Dude, both of which offer helpful tips for life and stuff. Awesome comics this week included Dark Knight III and Black Magick. Also, an article from The Atlantic sheds light on the secretly warring factions from disparate parts of Texas that demand satisfaction via credit for creation of the breakfast taco.
The power couple discusses the new Deadpool movie and the trailer for season 2 of DareDevil on Netflix. We debut our new metal theme music, provided courtesy of Ryan McCracken. In tv stuff we talk 11.22.63, Hulu's new mini-series based on the Stephen King book of the same name. We also hit on the second to last episode of the new X-Files. Comic book talk includes Power Man and Iron Fist, Superman: American Alien, and Lazarus.
The power couple tries to make it easier to record by basically eliminating format... and research... and cogency. For comics we briefly touch on DareDevil, Pretty Deadly, and the new Spider-Man series. In television the X-Files is back, Legends of Tomorrow has aired a few episodes, and Unreel and The Batchelor are on Charlene's mind a lot. We also talk about superior podcasts like Stuff You Should Know, the Channel 33 podcast network, and The Vertical.
The power couple discusses The Shadow Hero, last year's graphic novel about the Green Turtle. Published by First Second, it's a superhero origin story written by Gene Luen Yang with art by Sonny Liew. The Green Turtle was originally created in 1944, had only a five-issue run in comics, and is rumored to be the first Chinese-American superhero in comics; Yang brings the hero back to life with this story. We also talk about the new USA Network show Mr. Robot, starring Rami Malek and Christian Slater. The show is about a cyber-security engineer/hacker who is recruited to help take down a huge corporation. As USA's first attempt at prestige television, Mr. Robot does a ton of things right and the intrigue continues to build as the season goes along. We highly recommend this show. Charlene's Notable this week is the end of Matt Kindt's MIND MGMT series and the one-shot follow-up conclusion, NEW MGMT. Eamon's Notable is Jason Reitman's live reading of the Big Lebowski, held at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal.
