TWO TRUE FREAKS! The Show That DARES Ask The Burning Question — What The Fuck Is A Kooklechew? What a month! Scott is welcomed back to the show and his birthday is exploited for cheap laughs! Tired of dark, gritty and depressing comics? Scott, Michael and Chris discuss ways of “brightening up” some of these sequential art buzz-kills. Then, Scott and Michael talk about how they should talk about Superman sometime and then talk about Superman! Then, after everyone gets all riled up, Chris reads a comic. This time it’s a Deadpool and Captain Britain team-up! THEN, after ALL THAT – you get your monthly dose of The Walking Dead, and once again, it is a BITTER PILL! Did I say that there’s more? THERE’S MORE! Tune in to HEAR IT ALL!
In a landmark Comics Monthly Monday, the Freaks welcome Michael Bailey as a new regular host of the show! This month they discuss the new direction the show will take, muse about the future, solicit ideas, talk about e-bay, Shazam, a travelogue from Michael and so much more! This podcast was recorded during Chris’ vacation in Orlando, so expect that “on-the-fly” feel!
This episode is a rerun that originally aired September 29th, 2008.
Episode 8 – Trailer Trash Talk
In this classic and much more free-form show, The Freaks discuss the teasers and trailers for such then-upcoming films as Frank Miller’s “The Spirit”, “TR2N” (now retitled “TRON: Legacy”), “Terminator: Salvation” and the remake of “The Day The Earth Stood Still” among others.
Chris throws one of his best on-air fits ever all about garage sale etiquette and Scott invents the phrase “hobby raping”. Add some Firesign Theatre, the Justice League roll call, and a trip to the Freak Museum and you it’s easy to see why this is one of the Freaks’ most beloved episodes.
The song featured in the Freak Museum segment is “Our Song” by Roger Waters from the soundtrack to the movie “The Body”.
