Episode 108: Goodbye Darth! - Obiwan Kenobi Series Reactions

July 1, 2022

After six weeks of thrills, chills, laser swords, and various fans losing their ever-loving minds about whether this was the worst thing in Star Wars ever or just the worst thing in the past year, the Obiwan Kenobi limited series is complete. Which poses the biggest question of them all... how did we do in predicting what would happen and what wouldn't?! We'll go through all of our parsing of interweb rumors and see which one of these idiots will come out on top.

Also, in The Week In Geek... we talk about the rumors of Gillian Anderson joining the MCU, hot takes on the new Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning trailer, and the return of our Red Five Star Wars Trivia segment.

Episode 107: Talk To Me Nostalgia - Top Gun: Maverick Reactions

June 24, 2022

We've been on quite a run of sequels in the recent years that pick up decades after the original and somehow manage to treat the subject matter with some delicacy and produce a decent movie. Will Top Gun: Maverick continue the tradition or will it drill a smoking crater somewhere in an unnamed country? Who knows, but it's gonna be fun to find out what the idiots had to say about this one!

Also, in The Week In Geek... we talk some Ghostbusters news as well all the injuries and other debacles currently happening in WWE and AEW.

Episode 106: Unpopular Opinion - The Last Jedi Is A Great Star Wars Movie

June 16, 2022

That's right... WE SAID IT!

For all the venom and derision directed at Rian Johnson's foray into a galaxy far, far away, we happen to believe it's not only a GOOD Star Wars movie, but a GREAT one. So your humble idiotic hosts break down what The Last Jedi did right, what it did wrong, and lay out the case for why it deserves to be in the discussion as one of the top flicks in the franchise.

Also, in The Week In Geek... somehow, our Real or Jabroni picks have been vindicated, after a fashion ... news about a new animated Ghostbusters project and the sequel to Ghostbusters: Afterlife ... and our thoughts on episode four of Obi-Wan Kenobi along with reactions to fan complaints. 

 

LINKS OF INTEREST:

- We may be idiots, but occasionally, we're right... Our Real or Jabroni picks have been vindicated! Twice!

- Do we really need a new Ghostbusters animated series and a sequel? YES!

May 26, 2022

Fresh off our first ever tie in The Real or The Jabroni, Uncle Todd has talked The Man They Call Tim into a double-or-nothing situation with our fan theory predictions for the new Obi-Wan Kenobi limited series premiering on Disney+ this Friday! Which theories will turn out to be true? Which ones won't happen under any circumstances? Most importantly, which idiot is going to take home TWO bottles of bourbon when this thing is all said and done?! Start the journey with us!

Episode 103: Multiversal Morons! - Doctor Strange 2 The Real or The Jabroni Results

May 17, 2022

Now that we've managed to get out to the theaters to see the new Doctor Strange movie (and vent our frustrations about some Star Trek in our previous episode), we're ready to see how we did with our predictions of what would and what wouldn't happen in Multiverse of Madness. As always, these were based off fan theories The Man They Call Tim found on the interwebs that were quite possibly typed by crazy people or non-existent people (or crazy non-existent people just to cover all the bases), so as usual, large chunks of salt should be taken with all.

 

LINKS OF INTEREST:

- I got a fever... and the only cure is more cowbe... um... Dune, Part 2!

- Well, that was quick... Marvel may have their new director for the Fantastic Four!

- Science fiction fans rejoice! Violent delights return this June!

 

...AND ANOTHER THING:

The Man They Call Tim recommends watching (or rewatching) all of Schitt's Creek before it leaves Netflix for Hulu in September

Uncle Todd wants to wish the one and only Danny Trejo a Happy 78th Birthday and thinks you should use it as a fine excuse to watch Machete immediately

Episode 102: Stupid Trek?! - Our Star Trek Picard Season 2 Postmortem

May 13, 2022

That's right, we said it. We dive into the wreckage of what was a promising season of storytelling and figure out what went wrong along the way. Uncle Todd gets the chance to vent about his issues with the show, The Man They Call Tim attempts to throw in some bright spots, and we virtually guarantee that we will never be invited to a Trek convention for as long as we live. Enjoy!

Also... We talk about a possible character returning to face off with Boba Fett, the potential release date for Mando season 3, our thoughts on the Moon Knight season finale, and... *sigh* ... The Man They Call Tim continues his reign of terror with Red Five Star Wars trivia.

 

LINKS OF INTEREST:
