Thanks to Brian, we’ve got another commission this week. It’s the first and last episodes of Invincible season 1. You might not expect a bookended sampling of a series to work very well, but aside from not knowing a few of the side characters, I apparently missed out on almost nothing by skipping the other 6 episodes. Join us for a discussion of this animated deconstruction of the superhero genre.
What a difference a word, and one excellent writer / director, makes! The Suicide Squad is a complete 360 from the steaming pile of garbage that was Suicide Squad. It’s fun, action-packed, ultra-violent and everything we would hope to see from the evolution of subversive superhero movies.
This week’s Off the Clock covers A.Ron’s rewatch of Avengers: Infinity War, as well as Netflix’s “The Trial of the Chicago 7” and Blake Crouch’s sci-fi book “Recursion.”
Season 2 of The Boys is in the books and we’re here to consider all the feedback we received on this season including hopes and predictions for season 3.
The season finale of The Boys gave us everything we hoped for and nothing we expected, making it a proper finale. Join us for the discussion this week and next week for our season wrapup and feedback podcast. Join the discussion: Email | Forums Follow us: Twitch | YouTube | Twitter | Instagram | Facebook…
The penultimate episode of season 2 sees Annie in trouble, Hughie coming to her rescue with Lamplighter’s help, and Butcher confronting his past in the worst way possible.
This week we find out a whole lot more about the Sage Grove facility.
This week the boys get trapped in Butcher’s Auntie’s house with nothing but his trusty dog and a few IEDs for protection while Homelander and Maeve struggle with their images.
With their mission at a dead end, Butcher has to get lucky if he’s going to try to track down Becca. A-Train gets an unwelcome surprise as Homelander tries to retake control of The Seven. Speaking of Homelander, that guys really messed up, right?! Finally, Huey, Annie, and MM go on roadtrip to find a long-forgotten super that they hope can help decide their next move.
The Boys is back in town for season 2 and we’ve got a full review of the first 3 episodes. Caution: There are major spoilers for all 3 episodes embedded throughout this podcast. You’ve been warned.
