It’s Day 11 of the 12 Days of Zone 4, and as promised, I talk about my love for the G.I. Joe franchise dating back three decades! I’m talking action figures, cartoon, comics, etc. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle. G.I. JOOOOOOOE!
Alternate Reality – Episode #355
YO JOE!!! It’s back to movies for us and the good folks at Definitive Geek as we cross the podcasting streams once again to bring a new movie review. This time we chat with the fine fellows of the great frozen north about GI Joe Retaliation, the new installment in the GI Joe franchise staring such big names as The Rock and Bruce Willis. Find why the guys loved this installment so much better that the fist, well except for Darren who, for whatever reason, never found any problems with the first one. Anyway a rocking good time was had by all and by the end of the review the conversation had devolved into “What were the best GI Joe toys, and which ones did you have?” You can’t miss this. Hoorah!!!

The episode you have been waiting for (simply because we haven’t released one in two weeks, not because it is any good). DC Decides to reboot our worlds and Kevin is a cantankerous old man that hates divorce. We tell you the top 5 books we cannot wait for, and the top 5 who gives a shit books, not because you actually care about what we think, but because we were hurting for content. We also talk current comics with Spawn 201-207, GI Joe, Cobra, and Snake eyes 1, Kirby Genesis, and Star Wars Jedi Dark. We end with zombie love and you will enjoy, i command it. (or actually ask nicely.)
Get it on iTunes, our website, or anywhere you find good podcast (and even some shitty ones). or right here.
Despite not being good at numbers and telling the world that this was episode 130, this i actually episode 129, which starts the show off telling you about the numerous things that Kevin will be wrong about. TJ has anger towards those that make fun of people yet show their ignorance in the process, and Margaret has a shitty boss. We learn that while some may not actually have a prick, they can still be a prick. Flashpoint kicked all sorts of ass and if you do not agree with that statement then go read something else. Batman and Robin is getting better and better and Jason Todd is only allowed one writer. Cassie Hack shows her naughty bits, and Chuck Dixon writes like a five year old. All this and more in a very entertaining F BombCast. Enjoy!
an iTunes review would be extra sexy.
