Thwipping Boys – Babylon 5 Season 4: Part 1

Another looong gap in the Babylon 5 journey which started about this time last year but we’re powering into Season 4 and moving into the arena of video for the first time.

For those of you who are fans of B5 but haven’t listened to any of our shows yet, they chart the journey of a man who always thought the show was shite and openly mocked those who watched it, but who has since been convinced to watch it himself and…hopefully…admit he was wrong.

So if you haven’t listened before, start at Season 1.

Cheers!

Thwipping Boys – Game of Thrones Season 5 Finale: Mother’s Mercy

Bit of a weird one this week as Jon is suffering from apparently inhaling the contents of Thorpe Lake up his nose, the boys experiment with their first ever live call in show and for the video only we also get the debut of the Japanese viral sensation YOGHURT-O-MAN!

But of course we’re here to discuss Game of Thrones and the numerous stories that come to a shocking conclusion, going a long way to saving a season that was, let’s face it, pretty mediocre for about 70% of it.

Cheers!

Thwipping Boys: Identity Crisis – Deep Dive Discussion!

A very special show for you here as we’ve reached into the vault and pulled together our separate reviews for each issue of Identity Crisis, which remains to this day one of our very favourite comics – and we’ve also put together a fun video as a tasty side dish!

We look in-depth at Brad Meltzer and Rags Morales’ deconstruction of the superhero / detective story with the kind of intelligence and erudite insight (yeah, right) you have come to demand over the years, and we have a few laughs on the way too.

If you only ever listen to one of our podcasts, make it this one.

Thwipping Boys – Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 9: The Dance of Dragons

A truly shocking moment permeates the atmosphere throughout The Dance of Dragons and casts a shadow even as things kick off big time in Mereen.

Among other topics, did they really need to spend screentime on a paedophile subplot that seems designed to justify the upcoming murder of a character we were all quite happy to see killed anyway?

PLUS, we decide on the fly to host our first ever live call in show for the finale next week. If you would like to be involved follow us on Twitter for more info, we’ll be putting a post up with more details soon.

 

Cheers!

Thwipping Boys – Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 8: Hardhome

After seven episodes of unusually dull and bizarrely paced plotting with a fair few silly story choices, we finally get a stupendous episode in Game of Thrones’ fifth season as Jon Snerr comes face to face with the full might of his Northern nemesis.

Cheers!

Thwipping Boys – Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 7: The Gift

An email from a listener brings us right back to last week’s Sansa situation and has us uncharacteristically animated as we defend the direction the showrunners have chosen to take.

However while we don’t have an issue with the tastefulness of the decisions the show is making, we DO have one with its continuing decline in quality.

Cheers!

Thwipping Boys – Game of Thrones Catch Up: Episodes 2-6

In which Simon comes up with a theory about Daario which we’ve yet to hear elsewhere, might be wrong but we think you might have heard it here first.

And as the changes from the source material continue to get crazier and crazier, Jon’s references to the book even start to piss him off. Unfortunately, it also seems that the further the show is getting from the original, the stupider it’s getting too.

Cheers!

Thwipping Boys – Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Catchup and Avengers: Age of Ultron Deep Dive

We haven’t talked Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in many a moon but decided to catch up now that we’re approaching what promises to be an insane season finale. So check in with us as we discuss episodes 12-19 of Season 2.

Some questions for you:
– What is Theta Protocol?
– Why is Jon wearing his wife’s dressing gown?
– What lies in the bowels of Gonzales’ battleship?

We think we know the answer to the third one at least, but if you have your own theories on any of those, email in and let us know!

 

And since you lovely Americans have now seen Age of Ultron, you can finally check out our spoiler-packed deep, deep dive into the latest Marvel blockbuster.

 

Cheers!

Thwipping Boys – Age of Ultron Predictions and Daredevil Season 1

Before the original Avengers came out we were in the minority who had faith that it was all going to work out for the best.

Now at the request of one of our listeners we’re doing our Age of Ultron predictions, difficult this time because one of us is refusing to read any spoilers or watch any trailers. But we give it our best shot anyway.

We also discuss the Daredevil Netflix TV series and our hopes for this new corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Cheers!
