The Tick (2016)

Join Scott and his special guests Kevin and Matt as they take a look at Amazon's new pilot about a mysterious superhero and his young neurotic sidekick uncovering the mystery surrounding their lawless city: "The Tick"! Listen as they discuss the history of the character of the The Tick, from 18-year-old Ben Edlund's creation for New England Comics' newsletters, to a much-loved 1994 animated series, and a short-lived live action reboot in 2001. They'll talk about Peter Serafinowicz's amazing talent for voices, the specific look of The Tick and Arthur's costumes, and how Wally Pfister's direction brings an interesting grounded reality to The Tick's off-the-wall comic book universe. They'll also point out nods to the animated series, share details you may have missed, and also Ben Edlund answers some tweets about the characters! So drink a cup of melted ice cream, watch out for falling ships, and let destiny make listening to this episode your "new plan"! Spoon!

X-Men (1992): Come the Apocalypse

Join Scott and Hamish as they delve deep into the character of Apocalypse and break down the classic episode of the X-Men 1992 animated series entitled "Come the Apocalypse"! Listen as they discuss Apocalypse from his beginnings as Louise Simonson's leader of the "Alliance of Evil" in X-Factor #5 to his feature film debut in "X-Men: Apocalypse". They'll also review his four horsemen in their original forms, including the shocking transformation of Angel to Archangel in this episode, as well as the comic books. They'll also talk about the incredible anime intro that only aired in Japan (plus with some closing credits elsewhere), the ToyBiz line of action figures that was sometimes tied to the show, and a whole bunch of funny moments from the cartoon. And if that wasn't enough, Scott also plays a clip of an X-Men skit he recorded as a little kid. So put on your yellow spandex, leave Morph behind, and enjoy the show!
