Inhumans: Those Who Would Destroy Us

Join Scott, Kevin and Sarah as they force themselves yet again to take a look at the second episode of Marvel’s newly canceled TV entry in their Cinematic Universe: Inhumans. Listen as they continue the story of Inhuman king Black Bolt and his family escaping to Earth to avoid the takeover of the lunar city of Attilan by his power-hungry brother Maximus. They’ll discuss the many problems with this series, from unlikable characters and a weak script to drab sets and unintentionally hilarious moments. Waiting around on the beach, using a Fitbit, comedically trying on suits, teleporting like Super Mario Brothers 2...this episode has it all! So relax on your concrete throne, set your phone on Black Bolt, and laugh along with us!

This is part two of our review of the Inhumans’ two-episode premiere. Look for part one in our archives!

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

WARNING: SPOILERS AND MAJOR PLOT POINTS ARE DISCUSSED IN THIS EPISODE! MAKE SURE YOU SEE THE MOVIE BEFORE LISTENING!

 

Finally! Join Scott, Hamish, and resident Star Wars expert Paul, as they breakdown and review the long-awaited newest installment of the Star Wars franchise and continuation of the new trilogy: Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi! Listen as they discuss their thoughts on what is possibly the most polarizing Star Wars film to date! How was the character of Leia handled? Did Luke Skywalker’s books tell us what we wanted to know about the force? Why did the Jedi order need to end? What about that milking scene? Did the “big reveals” in this movie strengthen or weaken the overall story? What about Snoke?! What happened there?! All of these questions are addressed and many, many more! With one person absolutely loving this movie, another disappointed, and another with an opinion maybe somewhere in the middle, this was quite an interesting discussion. May the force be with you!

Inhumans: Behold… The Inhumans

Join Scott, Kevin and Sarah as they breakdown and review the first episode of the latest television entry in Marvel’s ever-expanding Cinematic Universe: Inhumans. Listen as they talk about the story behind this miniseries, from a scrapped future movie, to an edited IMAX release, to finally, a poorly reviewed series. They’ll also talk about the history of these characters, dating back to Stan Lee and Jack Kirby creations from the 1960’s and a fictional city that’s even older! What made this series get such bad reviews? Why did Marvel fans loathe this live action adaptation of classic comic book characters? Well, laugh along with us and find out. Just don’t ask “Whhhhhhhhhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?”

 

This is part one of our review of the Inhumans’ two-episode premiere. Look for part two very soon!

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (Trailer)

Join Scott and his special guest, resident Star Wars expert Paul (in a rare, live in-studio appearance) as they breakdown every little detail of the new trailer for the highly anticipated second installment in the new Star Wars trilogy: "Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi"! Listen as they discuss what this trailer shows us, and if it's an accurate depiction of what we'll see in the movie. Is Snoke looking to upgrade his apprentice from Kylo Ren to Rey? Will Rey turn to the dark side of the force? Are Porgs a good sign for Star Wars fans? Will Luke or Leia die in this film? These are just some of the questions they address. They'll also talk about some of the new elements of the film: our first look at Snoke (not in holographic form), the salty mineral planet Crait, the new AT-M6 walkers, (sigh) Porgs, and much more. Will The Last Jedi be a ripoff of The Empire Strikes Back? Will they flip the script and have the protagonist turn evil in the darkest Star Wars installment yet? Or does the trailer just have a bunch of force visions cut together to confuse us? Let's guess together! May the force be with us!

The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang: May the Farce Be with You

Join Scott, Hamish, and Kevin for a look back at a cartoon with one of the worst premises in the history of television: the atrocious "Happy Days" animated sci-fi spinoff "The Fonz and The Happy Days Gang"! Listen as they breakdown and review the second episode of the series, "May the Farce Be With You", in which The Fonz, Ritchie Cunningham, Ralph Malph, the anthropomorphic dog Mr. Cool, and a super-powered girl from the 25th century named Cupcake accidentally travel to outer space in the year 2057 and try to stop an alien robot queen from destroying the earth with a laser beam. (Y'know, like a typical Happy Days story!) They'll talk about Garry Marshall's wildly popular sitcom "Happy Days" and how even its infamous "jumping the shark" moment wasn't as bad as this abysmal Saturday morning cartoon. From logic-bending powers and an incomprehensible plot to lackluster action and an intro by none other than famed disc jockey Wolfman Jack, this has everything you don't want in a TV show. So pull the lever, fire up those star jets, and endure this mess with us! Ayyyyyyyyyyyy!

Generation X

Join Scott and Hamish as they take a look back at what is technically the very first X-Men movie, the 1996 made-for-TV: "Generation X"! Listen as they review this feature length TV movie that was also a failed pilot for a possible series. They'll compare the original members of the team that are seen in the Uncanny X-Men and Generation X comic books to their live-action counterparts. They'll also discuss the new characters that were created just for this production, the interesting acting choices of Matt Frewer, scenes that were cut or reshot for television, and the possible impact that a picked up Generation X series would have on the X-Men cinematic franchise that would start only four years later. From cheesy CGI and X-ray vision, to accents and dream webs, they'll review it all! So put on your dream helmet and ride the white light as you laugh along with us! Zap!

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (Teaser)

Join Scott along with Hamish and resident Star Wars expert Paul as they take an in-depth look at the new teaser for the highly anticipated follow-up to 2015's The Force Awakens: "Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi"! Listen as they breakdown every scene of our first taste of this new episode and discuss details you may have missed. They'll talk about the status of our heroes and villains since the last movie, what we can expect from Luke Skywalker, and what might be revealed in this episode of the saga. They'll also discuss the Journal of the Whills and how it may relate to this film, the concept of the grey side of the force, and why maybe the Jedi really do need to end. Will we find out Rey's history? Will we find out who Supreme Leader Snoke is? Will Rey be the first of a new force-wielding order? Why are all of Poe and Luke's nice things getting burned!? It's all discussed and much, much more! So put your ancient book back on the tree shelf, crawl into a rehabilitation pod and comb over every detail of this teaser along with us! May the force be with you!

Star Wars: Droids: The Revenge of Kybo Ren

Join Scott and Hamish as they take a look back at an episode of an often forgotten chapter of the Star Wars saga: "Star Wars: Droids!" Listen as they breakdown and review the eighth episode "The Revenge of Kybo Ren". They'll talk all about the chronology of the series, the status of its canonicity, and especially the curious character of the space pirate Kybo Ren, whose name seems way too similar to "Kylo Ren" to be just a coincidence. Does this cartoon have anything to do with the movies? How did C3PO and R2D2 have these adventures independent of the other cinematic characters? Did George Lucas change anything for the home video release? Wait, why is there a Klingon ship in this?! They'll answer all of these, and much much more! So wheel yourself space cake, disable your green force field, and laugh along at whatever this cartoon was trying to do! Bleep bloop!

Join Scott, Kevin, and Hamish for a very special 100th episode of Hitting Play where they take a look at some very special TV episodes that have aired over the decades. Listen as they discuss some TV episodes they've picked that stood out from the others in their respective series, for better or for worse...but, yeah, mostly worse.

C'mon, of course time traveling pirate Urkel made the list! So sit back, listen to some of the most ridiculous and outlandish episodes TV has to offer, and celebrate 100 episodes along with us!
