Alternate Reality – Episode 399

Alternate Reality – Episode #399

Last episode was a double length episode.  Guess what?…. we got another hum-dinger of a show lined up tonight and it too is a double length episode.  Why does Alternate Reality keep putting out double length episodes?  Well perhaps it because we only put about half as many episodes as we’re supposed to, so we feel encumbered to give you more content each episode.  ORRRR it could be that we have no time management skills.  Either way you got double for you trouble again this week.

This week things take an “unexpected” turn when Charlie talks about The Unexpected #5.  Jon relives his college glory days in his review of Batman/The Maxx #1.  And the boys talk about several other great books; too numerous to name.

Then the worst happens.  Jon and Charlie decide to spend just a few moments on The Venom Movie that just came out in theaters.  Well you know that that means here on the Alternate Reality Podcast…………. DOUBLE LENGTH EPISODE!!!!!!!!

That’s right the boys go IN DEPTH to tell you everything that happens in the movie and what they thought about it right down to the mid and end credit sequences.  By the time they get done you will feel like you saw the movie twice as you’ll relive almost every moment of the film though Jon and Charlie’s eyes.  And if you haven’t seen it and decide to listen anyway, well then you won’t need to see it anymore as you will be able to create the action in the movie in your mind from the boy’s vivid “play-by-play” reenactments and descriptions.  It really is breath-taking.

If, after all that, you are still a fan and want to listen to next episode you’re in for a treat.  Next episode is #400.  See you there.

Alternate Reality – Episode 398

Alternate Reality – Episode #398

Despite torrential flooding, the Alternate Reality crew is still here and all without building an Ark.  We managed to survive the flood waters this time but with a new hurricane coming in on the eastern seaboard, we’re liable to be up to our necks in it.

In the meantime, we’re already up to our necks in comics.  We’ve got an assortment for you this week as Jon and Charlie talk about everything from James Bond in WWII, to the Star Wars Universe and all points in-between.

And if that wasn’t enough for you, the boys take some extra time to dive outside the comics book flood waters into other seas of geekery.  We take a quick look at Spider-Man which just hit the PS4 and Iron Fist season 2 which just hit Netflix.

Uh oh, I should have said that.  Whenever we say we’re gonna do anything quick, or just touch on a subject for a few mins, the episode turns out to be twice as long.  Well, perhaps that’s for the best as the boys must take an extended brake after this so Jon can go to the Cleveland Clinic and be seen by the world’s best doctors.  So this double length episode may have to last as much as three weeks before Alternate Reality will be back.

Sorry, but that’s just the way things go sometimes.

Enjoy!!!
