Night Vale Recap: Episode 48, “Renovations”

Bonus podcast this week! Kathryn and Elizabeth, during their usual Sunday Skype talk, watched episode 48 of Welcome to Night Vale, and then randomly recorded a recap of the episode afterwards. Spoilers! Lots of spoilers! Both for this episode and any episode that came before, as we talk all things Night Vale, including some fan art we’ve found, and which song is our favorite Weather.

And if we make this a regular thing, next time we promise to break out the good microphones.

With Andrew on vacation, Anthony and Elizabeth pick the groups they’d most like to join (and the ones they’d least like to join) and dream about super powers. First, though, they break down the latest cancellations of the New 52, and dream about what DC could do to get things up to All-New Marvel levels of cool.

Comic Issues #172 – Characters that Gotta Go!

Everyone’s got a least a couple characters that they are sick and tired of seeing all over the place.  From comics, books, movies, and pop culture in general, the bombardment of some iconic characters can be pretty overwhelming.  This week the crew go over some of their most exhausting characters and deciding if they need a 5 year break or a 10 year break; although some are subjective.

On the way there the crew go over the release of the recent Guardians of the Galaxy trailer, the Batman’s Bat-Costume & Bat-Mobile, Flash teaser, and stick around to the end to hear Anthony and Elizabeth worry about the next racist Transformer.  GEEK ON!

Comic Issues #171 – Cast all the characters!

You know how sometimes you’ll think of a movie Hollywood should make, and then dreamcast all the actors you love into the roles? This week we figured heck with it, let’s do it backwards: we’ll talk about the actors we love best and figure out a comic-book movie we can put them in.

It’s a free-for-all of our favorite actors and our favorite characters: Idris Elba, Olivia Wilde, Katee Sackhoff, Kevin Spacey, Hawkgirl, Doctor Strange, Namor, Death, and a bunch more until that jerk Doctor Nick interrupted us. Before that happens though we also fit in the news about Agent Carter, Constantine, Suicide Squad showing up on Arrow, and an idea for DC: instead of trying to make Justice League stand up to Avengers, what if they went in a completely different direction?

Through art, costuming, and original writings Furries only desire is to live in a world happier than our own, even if only as a temporary escape.

Comic Issues #166 – TV Supreme!

We’ve all been there, a late night at Denny’s enjoying some mozzarella sticks and pacing yourself to make sure you get the last one, when someone start mouthing off about how great BBC television is and how lame it is here in the States.  Then your other buddy exposes his tattoo of Old Glory and reminds your other friend about the Trek.  Then it’s just Doctor Who and Supernatural and Sherlock, blah blah blah…

Now you can shut up your annoying friends before the manager tells you to quiet down before he kicks you out with this week’s podcast.  The crew take a hard look at what England has to offer compared to America’s library of television to debate, WHO’S MAKING BETTER GEEK TV?  Also asked, what IS Geek TV?  Is Monty Python nerdy because nerds are the ones who watch it most? Was CTV edgier than SNL back in their early days? Who are these porn stars that Anthony is supposed to know?

Tune in and see if you agree with who makes a better nerd show.
