We break down Star Wars: The Bad Batch premiere and our concerns about this latest entry in the Star Wars saga. The Flash is seeing some original cast members depart while another is returning after being killed off (?). And at least some of us are debating ending the race with the series. We also talk about DC's upcoming rumored film slate with the J.J. Abrams Superman and The Joker sequel. Also stay tuned for a special promotion for That Damned Michael Che with a chance to win a $25 gift card.
For this episode we're breaking down the finale of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and what that means for the MCU's future.  Sam Wilson's journey to becoming Captain America is over and now it's time to watch him shine in his new role. And what about the potential for some Secret Invasion connections? We've also got some news on Titans casting Scarecrow, the return of DC FanDome and the diminishing returns of DC films in general.  Gunner and Jovon had some major issues with the latest Mortal Kombat reboot and Jayce and I try to make it a fair fight. Plus, I have a near podcast breakdown discussing the likelihood of Mac Jones being drafted to the 49ers. 
Mortal Kombat is coming to theaters and HBO Max tomorrow and the fellas are hyped for it. And while we're talking about video game movies, we break down some of our favorite and worst in the genre. Sony and Disney struck a big deal to bring the Spider-Man films to Disney+ and we're all set for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier finale. The gang is not happy about the plans for a How I Met Your Father spin-off, a Fantasy Island reboot and the return of Masters of None. As always, thanks for listening and don't forget to rate, review and subscribe,
We're almost at the milestone 200th episode, but for episode 193 we've still got plenty to discuss.  First up, we break down one of Marvel Studios' best recent efforts with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The show has been crazy and exceeded our expectations so far. We break down what we want to see in the final two episodes.  The Flash hasn't been nearly as fun and we try and make sense of what's going wrong.  And naturally, we have to talk about that insane new F9 with the team teasing in space and Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead.
Ray Fisher finally unloaded all of the behind the scenes drama he experienced while shooting Justice League. It's a crazy situation and we break down all the foolishness as well as why Warner Bros. will always be looking up at Marvel Studios' success.  Tyler Perry is planning a Madea drama prequel to explore his iconic character's past. Some of the guys actually think this could be a hit.  Kanye West had a documentary coming to Netflix, but the guys aren't that excited about this one.  Finally, Jovon and Chief break down Godzilla vs. Kong and share their raves and rants about the clash of titans. 
After another disappointing episode, we break down the Walking Dead woes and tie it in to the terrible decision to announce the Carol and Daryl spin-off.  The Flash tries to find a bit more consistency as the roll-out of The Forces continue. Did we like the introduction of Psych? Supergirl returns while Superman and Lois is on hiatus. We decide if the show is worth continuing to check out or it's it time to finally declare the show dead to us.  We're finally back to a blockbuster movie season with the arrival of Godzilla vs. Kong. Only one can emerge the victory and the fellas discus their favorite. 
Zack Snyder's Justice League is in the books and we all got a chance to check it out and we've got a ton of opinions to break down. Jayce and I break down the latest episode of The Flash, which basically kicks off the new season finally. It left us feeling a bit more encouraged and somewhat cautious about what's in store for the rest of the year. We also break down the big bombshell with Batwoman with the recasting of Kate Kane and how that impacts current Batwoman, Ryan Wilder.
We're kicking off a special March feature where we break down the Best of The Franchise. We'll take a look at a series and determine which film was the absolute best entry. We're starting things off with Fast and Furious and Mission: Impossible. Which installment of Vin Diesel and Tom Cruise's franchises stands above the rest? Jovon and I break down the latest episode of The Walking Dead and discuss Gabriel's evolving character. 
For this episode we broke down our four comfort films that we will go to in any circumstance that will instantly put us in a better mood. Does Coming 2 America make the cut? Either way the fellas have now seen it and share their take on the sequel. Let's see if it matches up with mine.  Michael B. Jordan is headlining and directing Creed III and the guys come up with what they want to see and who Adonis should battle in the next installment slated for a 2022 release. 
I saw Coming 2 America and the boys share their apprehension about checking out the sequel to the Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall and the old gang.  Gunner felt validated while Jayce and Jovon were disappointed that Coming 2 America was a let down. If you've seen Coming 2 America, make sure to let us know what you think.   Superman & Lois had an impressive debut and we break down our expectations for the series going forward. 
It's the most anticipated new show of The CW Verse so naturally we had to share our thoughts on Superman and Lois. With strong performances from Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch, this looks like it could be a key show the CW Verse. But what did we think about it? We also break down the latest rumors with the Snyder Cut of Justice League and what at least one Warner Bros. executive really thought about Joss Whedon's contributions to the project.  Finally, we tackle the many problems with Batwoman and how it can still be salvaged and the potential for season 2 of WandaVision.
For this week, we end up having a longer conversation about The Bachelor than we ever thought possible. We break down the latest racial controversy, the overall issues with the format of the show and how race is factored into reality TV.  We discuss Matt James' disappointing lack of coolness and his overall bland presentation. The lessons The Bachelor should take going forward and why they basically had it right with Rachel Lindsay's season. And we try in vain to come up with some reason for Chief to ever give The Bachelor a chance.  We also break down the latest Justice League Snyder Cut trailer for the highly anticipated DC film set to debut on HBO Max next month.  Who got hyped after seeing it and who stayed the same and does this increase our hopes for a Justice League 2? As always, take a second to subscribe, rate and review the show. It is appreciated. 
I'm back to break down NXT TakeOver Vengeance Day - a stellar show from the black and gold brand.  It's a full rundown of the show from the finals of both the men's and women's Dusty Classic tournaments, the three-way women's championship, the North American title and NXT world title matches.  And in the aftermath of the shocking ending, I discuss a few intriguing ways NXT could go for Wrestlemania as far down the road to Summerslam.  Hope you enjoy the show and as always please subscribe, rate and review. 
We had a big show set up with some great discussion that naturally occurred before Gina Carano's mouth and tweets got her fired from The Mandalorian and Pedro Pascal got cast in The Last of Us series. Despite those setbacks, we did get in on Joss 'Trash' Whedon again and what these latest allegations mean for Ray Fisher's career. Also, we discussed the Black Panther casting rumors, Jared Leto's Snyder Cut makeover in Justice League and the latest bombshell episode of WandaVision. Finally, we wrap the show with our nominees for some of the best couples in movies and TV in honor of Valentine's Day in case you need some weekend recommendations.
Our minds are continually being blown by WandaVision. We talk about what we want to see playing out the rest of the season and what cameo would completely shake up our thoughts on the potential future for the series and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We also discuss the upcoming plans for Thor: Love and Thunder and the role of the Guardians of the Galaxy.  Cathy Yan had some issues with Warner Bros' handling of Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey. We question if she has a valid complaint or if there's just an overall editing problem with DC's live action films. And yeah we even bring back the Richard Donner cut of Superman II. 
I'm breaking down the WWE Royal Rumble 2021 on this show. As always, the Rumble kicks off Wrestlemania season and we get some idea about who some of the featured players will be thanks to the winners of the men and women's matches. There was more to the show of course and I break down all of the world title matches including Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens and Sasha Banks vs. Carmella. And I spend a longer time breaking down the Rumbles and my biggest beef with the current setup of the match.
We're back for another week to complain about Tom Brady returning to the Super Bowl and the revival of one of our more popular segments, 3 Best 3 Worst featuring Ryan Reynolds. Also, we discuss the latest craziness on WandaVision and our take on the mysterious possibilities for the culprit behind it. And we talk Marvel Studios rumors for the former Netflix characters and the big surge of HBO Max subscribers due to Wonder Woman 1984.
We're talking about all of the wackiness in WandaVision. What's got us excited about the new Marvel Studios series and what we hope is yet to come this year.  There's also talk about Chris Evans returning to play Captain America. How will that cameo look after his role in Avengers: Endgame? We also discuss the dramatic upheaval with the former Arrowverse with the Green Arrow and the Canaries spin-off not moving forward and early returns of season 2 of Batwoman not looking good.  Thanks as always for checking out the show. Hope you enjoy it and don't forget to share, rate, review and subscribe.   
We're kicking off the New Year with a look at what the fellas have been watching and anticipating as we approach the year mark of the pandemic. From Bridgerton, Cobra Kai, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and yes even a slacker finally coming around to Lovecraft Country, we break down some of our favorite latest binges. And with the latest bombshells from Ray Fisher about Warner Bros. and the subsequent writing out of Cyborg in The Flash movie we question if there's even a reason to stay invested in the DC Extended Universe at this point. 
It’s the last episode of a year that couldn’t end soon enough. Jovon and Gunner are back to talk Wonder Woman 1984 after finally checking it out over the week. We break down the big rumors of the week including speculation on Joseph Gordon-Levitte’s potential role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And we wrap this one up by breaking down our best and worst of 2020.
That's the main question the fellas discuss as we break down the sequel to the 2017 original.  We break down our disappointment and surprise at how many areas the film failed to land from Steve Trevor's return, Barbara Minerva breaking bad, Maxwell Lord's portrayal and a son named Alistair.  Settle in and grab some popcorn as we talk about one of our biggest cinematic disappointments of 2020. 
We were left in awe and excited about the future of Star Wars following the season finale of The Mandalorian. We break down all the possibilities from that big reveal, the true measure of success that Star Wars is back and wonder why the Sequel Trilogy couldn't have been as good as a TV series featuring a new character.  Wonder Woman 1984 is getting a mixed reaction from critics. After all of the delays will the film eventually prove to not be worth it and how does that affect the future of DC Comics films?  Hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and thanks for listening! 
Jayce and I break down the latest Star Wars rumors with Patty Jenkins directing Rogue Squadron and the Darth Vader/Obi-Wan Kenobi rematch set for the Obi-Wan series.  We also discuss the plans to have Temeura Morrison appear in a yet to be disclosed role, which might be one of Vader's Jedi Hunters.  On the Marvel front we tackle the latest Marvel TV series cancellation, the possible return of Mike Colter's Luke Cage under the Marvel Studios banner and a Thor cast member coming back for Thor 4.  And oh yeah, there's more rumors of new additions to Spider-Man 3. 
The Disney Shareholders' reveal pushed this one back a bit, but we're back with the pitches for our very own Christmas movie.  We also break down all of the possibilities with all of the Spider-Man 3 casting rumors and what other characters we'd like to see join the already mammoth film.  And as the theater/streaming debate continues we look at who's really during this unprecedented era in cinema.
