Remember last week when we said that episode 17 was the greatest thing to happen to the Internet EVER? Well, frankly… we lied!! Because THIS EPISODE IS THE GREATEST THING TO HAPPEN TO THE INTERNET EVER!!!! Mwwwwaahahahahahahaha!!!
Scott and Mike kick things off with e-mails and there is more talk of the JSA on the TV, which includes more on what problems Scott has with the BRAVE AND THE BOLD, a discussion on what sport produces the best athletes (hint: there are skates and a lot of fighting and no, the guys don’t talk about Tonya Harding!), and a few minutes on whether or not Earth-2 should come back!! Also, Mike challenges Scott to a no-holds barred, over the top, best of the best, roadhouse style debate on Guy Gardner! Finally, a listener brings up the geek elitism topic again and Mike is reduced to tears!
Actually that doesn’t really happen, but it’s still a darn good e-mail at any rate.*
Then the guys jump into ALL-STAR COMICS #72, which sees the JSA fighting the deadly Thorn! Commentary on this rather good issue includes, among other things, the wonky artwork, Flash’s inappropriate behavior at the group meeting, the Huntress being one of those obnoxious new people at work that ten seconds after being on the job starts trying to tell everyone what’s what, an odd tangent on Dick Grayson’s fighting ability, and whether or not Jay Garrick dyes his hair.
And BECAUSE YOU DEMANDED IT!! — Mike and Scott cover the ads! And what awesome, awesome ads they are. Ads for a Star Wars club. Ads for cool looking comics. Ads that show how dysfunctional the Marvel Family was. Also the fantastic DAILY PLANET page with more ASK THE ANSWER MAN questions! And of course… the Hostess ad. Sadly, Scott and Mike have to actually work hard to point out the messed up things in this one because oddly enough it actually makes sense!! Well… mostly.
* Note: Mike does the editing on this show, so the thirty minutes of Mike sobbing like a five year old whose blanket was taken away has “mysteriously” disappeared. Take that however you want to.
