February 23, 2021

Since the opening credits of the first episode, WandaVision has been sprouting fan theories like kudzu taking over a vacant lot. In this episode, we go through some of them and decide whether they're the real or jabroni. What does that mean exactly? Well, you'll have to listen to get the explanation!

Episode 54: Release The WandaVision!

January 23, 2021

After gritting through "The Year Without Marvel", we get our first dose of the new MCU show WandaVision. So, of course, we needed to geek out to this one for a bit as Feige & Co. decided to drop not one but TWO episodes on a waiting world. We'll give our opinions, thoughts, and more than likely idiotic predictions in this action-packed episode along with a healthy bit of news in The Week In Geek!

 

LINKS OF INTEREST:

- Nope, Todd wasn't just imagining it - Sweden did plant a forest of trees for shipbuilding and it's called the Visingsö Oak Forest

- The cop from Dumb & Dumber? That would be one Harland Williams, also known for Half-Baked, Robots, and... Fudgy Wudgy Fudge Face. Yup, that's the title of a legit movie.

- Holy sweet mother of crap, Todd somehow managed to misspell "sword" during the show ... He was, of course, referring to S.W.O.R.D. which you can learn more about here.

- And while we're at it, here's some info on Advanced Idea Mechanics (A.I.M.) too

 

...AND ANOTHER THING:

Episode 53: Show Me The Movies - 1996: The Year In Movies

January 15, 2021

A ways back, we dove into movies from the year 1977 (Episode 38) and came up with some rather interesting results. Well, we're back at it again - this time, with a year that's a bit more recent and relevant to a couple guys in their 40's, the year 1996. We talk about our top movies, honorable mentions, and flicks that surprised us along with our normal assortment of nonsense.

Episode 52: Not Dead Yet! - When Characters Die & Come Back

January 9, 2021

The return of Boba Fett in The Mandalorian got us thinking about if there are any rules about when characters should die and come back? Well, we mulled it over a bit and decided to fire up the podcasting machine to record our thoughts for posterity. Enjoy our first episode of 2021!

 

LINKS OF INTEREST:

- Here's some more information about former NFL coach and ladies man Wayne Fontes

Episode 51: Mandalorian Endgame with special guest Jimmy Dice

Episode 51: Mandalorian Endgame with special guest Jimmy Dice

January 5, 2021

The Mandalorian was the most glorious thing to come out of the trainwreck that was 2020, and we will not argue about this. So it was only natural that we took some time to go deep geek on the final chapter that doubles as one of the greatest season finales in history with our good friend Jimmy Dice from Scruffy Looking Podcasters.

Programming note... We recorded this episode the Sunday after Chapter 16 streamed and had planned to release it as two episodes the weeks before Christmas. As you can clearly see, that didn't happen, so feel free to chuckle at all the holiday references and enjoy this as our parting gift from 2020.

 

LINKS OF INTEREST:

- Here's the original SNL Five Timers club skit with Tom Hanks and others along with what appears to be a 12 year old Conan O'Brien

- Here's the episode of Scruffy Looking Podcasters where they talked about (and laughed at) Tim's Mando theory

- Here's the IMDB page of Peyton Reed in all its glory

- Surprise surprise, Todd was wrong! The photo Katee Sackhoff posted of the bridge on her Instagram page wasn't Mark Hammill, but her dad.

- However, he did redeem himself because yes indeed, the Dave Klein who was the director of photography on "The Tragedy" was the same guy who worked with Kevin Smith all the way back in 1994 on Clerks.

- As always, be sure to check out Scruffy Looking Podcasters for all your Star Wars pod needs

 

...AND ANOTHER THING:

Tim is pretty excited about his new desk from Vari and gives it a hearty thumbs up.

Todd thinks the Nick Offerman yule log video is quality viewing for any time of year.

Episode 50: Fett-Mania - The Mandalorian Chapters 14 & 15

December 21, 2020

This one is for all those 80's kids who fought over who got to be Boba Fett playing with their action figures, because Mando gave us all the Fett we always wanted and then some over these two episodes! Along with that, we go through half of the epic "Geekgasm" announcements from Disney and cover all the upcoming Marvel stuff.

No links this week because our editing department (aka Todd) is desperately trying to catch up on episodes.

 

...AND ANOTHER THING:

Tim recommends check out your Spotify's Wrapped End of Year summary to see what you've been listening to during the last 18 years of 2020.

Todd thinks you should get yourself a copy of Yeager: An Autobiography and read it cover to cover in honor of Chuck Yeager, the greatest test pilot in history.
