In this issue Aitch, Smu, Elden and Kev talk about the passings of both Leslie Neilson and Invin Kirschner. Why is Marky Mark cast for Uncharted? The Whendon universe vents its fury at a Buffy reboot and more news you can use. In what’s tangling the webs the TSA has gone too dayumed far and there are more than enough parodies and real news articles that prove it.
In 1st impressions Kev sums up the first season of the Walking Dead series and Aitch gives his impression of the Young Justice premier on the CN. In comics reviews, Kev revies issue 49 of the Boys and Aitch reviews the Batman December 2010 One Shot. Also please listen to the PSA about coping through the holidays.
This one is a Barn Burner folks. get enthralled on who is a better crooner: Crosby, Como, or Sinatra, and whether Barbara Streisand belongs in that group. Enjoy as the boys Discuss Love Story and Saturday night Fever. Is Funny Girl a Movie that Transcends Sexual Orientation. If you don’t listen you will never know the true answers. Kick ass is spoken about in earnest now that two members of the show have seen it, and the deficiencies of Mark Millar as a writer are proven again and again. The Preacher Vs. The Boys (and how many times can TJ destroy his own argument by mistakenly calling Preacher The Boys). TJ has put on his Catholic school girl skirt and his hair in pig tails as he gets more into the world of Manga, this time with Deathnote Vol. 1. Mike and Kevin decide which run of Power Girl is better and the almost come to blows (well not really it is actually very cordial and dare i say delightful). Kevin loves Spitfire and Spitters and Head in general. We learn that Paul Cornell is actually a woman. Dna JT sah neeb detniopassid ni Annataz hcihw sah denrut morf ynnuf ot gnirob ni eerht seussi. Lastly Tj get Warren Ellis’s run of Excalibur spoiled for him but it leads to a x talk so that is fun. Enjoy!
