Three years ago we discussed Demon Archives, by Daniel Sharp and Sebastian Piriz. Recently, Daniel invited Tim and Mulele to take another look, as many more pages have come out since then. We did, and found that the comic has gone in some unexpected directions. Perhaps too many directions?
What happens when the computer that routes calls in a call center takes on a mind of its own? That’s the setup for the first story arc of Back Office, a Web comic by Mark Egan now available as a book. This week Tim asks him about his inspiration, his adopted home of Norway, and more. Our critique of Back Office from 2013
Scott was busy this month, off becoming an Official Walt Disney World MONORAIL PILOT, so Chris invited The Irredeemable Shag to sit in on this Special Episode focusing on “Star Trek: First Contact”, the first fully-Next Generation movie! This is Shag’s first Star Trek episode on “Two True Freaks!” and his enthusiasm shows! Stick around to the end to see exactly how enthusiastic he can get! Continuity issues are hashed out, Oobie Doobie gets played, a Borg Gorn is proposed, and so much more!
In this episode I’m joined by Benjamin Grimm to discuss two stoner comedies that came out recently; Your Highness and Paul. We’re also joined by a peanut gallery. This episode is brought to you by Gullible Moms. Spoilers!
This month, The Freaks are joined by Luke Jaconetti for their comprehensive coverage of the Disney classic of awesome gravity – The Black Hole!
Let’s take a look at this fantastic movie filled with an impressive cast and some of the moodiest special effects ever put on film before we get another remake thrust in our faces. It’ll probably be in 3D, too. Sigh.
Anyway, strap yourselves in, it’s going to be a weird ride that probably ends with your molecules being infinitely compressed to a zero-point singularity by unimaginable forces. Or not.
Join Scott Gardner 3 and Chris Honeywell 69 as they explore the futuristic Mall-World of the movie Logan’s Run! In this lovingly and meticulously crafted episode, the Freaks take you back to the future of 1976 where Logan 5 and Jessica 6 are forced to run to avoid the dreaded Carousel and find the mythical Sanctuary.. This film gives new meaning to the term “Don’t trust anyone over 30”! It’s all here – shiny homicidal robots, dirty homicidal kids, permissive morals, plastic surgery by laser, skinny dipping and Peter Ustinov as senile Ben Kenobi! Oh yeah, Farrah Fawcett’s in it too!
