Weekly comedy nerd podcast covering TV, video games, pop culture, and science with a unique spin: hilarious fake commercials.
We don’t exactly hate the new Mortal Kombat movie (spoilery details), Sean downplays the epidemic of suicide and drug overdose (hilarious), somehow we squeeze in more love for that weirdo Tom Cruise, and we share some details about our time as roommates.
We dive into a very specific portion of Jurassic Park and its famous director, which leads us into a discussion about whether Harrison Ford is a jerk. We also consider a Mission: Impossible / Bond crossover and delve once again into the scientific certainty that we're living in a simulation.
This low energy episode covers surprise ancient religious rituals, second puberties, and whether or not sex-gnomes have day jobs.
Klingon currency and delicious garbage. Do you think games used to be easier? No, Sean, they did not. Do you think movie composers used to be better? Yeah, they kind of did. BY MENNEN!
Our 100th episode, celebrated by celebrities and regular humans alike! See who stops by! And who loves Joe’s beard! *EDITED BY MIKE PERRETTO*
Mike's temporarily dead, so sitting in for him is the mostly alive Patrick Passafiume. He's got a list of grievances, which we somewhat address, but mostly ignore. Because who cares about crap like that when the moon is getting faster!?
Joe is possibly being haunted... by the living. And to whom do we owe thanks for making sci-fi and fantasy budgets bigger? Do people remind you of people, and some people don't? That's basically a quotation from this show... Jesus...
We feel a little sorry for women actually named Karen. We also talk SPACE, in a surprising turn of events, followed by a robust discussion of prestidigitation and other forms of illusion.
Do COVID vaccines grant superpowers? We talk about lesser and greater X-Men—X-People, more accurately. We also try to find sources of income for broke superheroes. How are you broke? Try harder.
The disparity between violence and nudity in American television, Sean and Joe get surprise Star Wars-related presents from Mike, we address casting announcements for the Obi-Wan series, and we rank the Star Wars movies! Basically… let’s talk Star Wars! Again!
We talk about recasting, particularly in the case of Batwoman and Black Panther, the popularity of various superhero shows, and we finally delve into the Snyder Cut. Tensions are high, passions are burning, and words are slurring.
The merits and demerits of Justin Long and Ace Ventura are both discussed at much too much length before we quickly devolve into a frank and serious talk about Superman's jizz.
Heath Ledger: Sympathy Oscar, or performance of a lifetime? We also compare the travails of our favorite hobbits and address the hottest drugs in town: the COVID vaccines and WandaVision.
Joe and Sean scheme to torture Mike for having interests, and a lot of dicks get blasted before an earnest discussion about business etiquette and movie franchises.
Sounds from space! Or IS it space? Mike disagrees. Can a moon have a moon? On the entertainment front, Sean has opinions on Tenet, we have man crushes (men crush?) on Michael Sheen, and de-aging technology still sucks.
We talk about our college years, the heavily censored edition. We also discuss WandaVision, good shows, bad shows, and the value of ending a story on a high note.
Aphantasia is about 14% as real as fibromyalgia. Having a twin is either great or horrible, depending on whether you’re Sean. Also, the late-night Jimmys are either made of teflon or there’s some kind of anti-cancel conspiracy going on there. We get edgy this week.
Sean gets his first gaming computer and, unrelated, becomes an important piece of a salacious criminal investigation. We also talk about beer nearly as much as we drink it.
We investigate supernatural goings-on at Sean’s workplace via the testimony of one codename Madame Xanadu. Unrelated, we also discuss volcanoes and the unbearably slow rate of discovery in science.
The guys reminisce about being children of the ‘90s. What was the internet like during those early years? How did people get their fix of adult content? What the hell was Altavista? All answered.
If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
