Zone 4 #263: A Missing Gladman

The crew returns with another episode of your favorite Friday Night Delight!

This week, it’s Brant, John, Cary and Frank.

We discuss, in a loose format, several news stories and go off on tangents of the X-Men film and so forth. Then we dive into Topic Time talking about our favorite comic films in the past 14 years (though the guys never seem to keep it in that time frame!).

Finally, the guys wrap things up with some announcements.

Zone 4 #255: New Classic

It’s “New Classic” as Cary Kelley and Frank Raynor make their official debut as full co-hosts along with John and Brant. Technical issues abound, just like classic Zone 4, and hilarity ensues. It’s a touch of RaynMan, free-flowing classic Zone 4, and our usual brand of insanity!

We discuss the Superbowl commercials, including the trailers for Amazing Spider-Man 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Transformers: Age of Extinction. And we break down a couple of lists we came across ranking the X-Men and Justice League.

Finally, the guys wrap things up with some announcements.
