Thank You for Doing This • Pray Bang

Another week, another bunch of crazy episodes of The Young Pope and Taboo to dig into. There was a common theme (somehow), and the guys make sure to give it the attention it deserves (NO SPOILERS!). Then Pat schools Chris on Ghost in the Shell (sorta), and they review the only thing matters from the film’s new trailer: THAT BODY SUIT.

Thank You for Doing This • Finds A Way

ww…to keep talking about Westworld! After a little chat about Billy Bush and Luke Cage (not simultaneously), Pat and Chris dive into the second episode of HBO’s new Sunday night drama. Then, in the conclusion you’ve all been waiting for, Chris gives his reviews of In the Heart of the Sea and Deadpool. Needless to say, Pat’s heart is once again broken. Chris is unrepentant. They make up. It gets weird. You know….the usual.

MARTY! • Episode 14 • ‘The Flash’ Season 2 Finale

Screenshot 2016-05-27 02.20.08Mike & Rus are back, just in time to discuss the time-travel riddled Season 2 finale of The Flash! Apologies for the poor quality of Rus’s audio; he apparently doesn’t know how to work his mic.

Spoilers follow…

With at least 5 speedsters in this episode and at least 3 instances of time-travel by at least 2 of those speedsters, Rus needs Mike’s help to get up to speed on both The Flash in DC Comics and on Barry Allen’s actions and motivations in this episode. The two discuss the implications of Flash’s actions on the growing CW’s DC superhero universe, and Mike threatens to turn his back on the show if there’s too much soap opera type human interactions in the Season 3 premiere this fall. Rus is all geek-giddy seeing 1990’s TV Flash, John Wesley Shipp, suited up as The Flash once again, but this time as Earth 3’s Jay Garrick Flash, who is inspired by DC Comics’ golden age Flash.

Run, Barry, run!

Crowdfinders • Episode 49 • Bobby Torres

Screenshot 2016-05-02 12.33.40David had the pleasure of talking with Bobby Torres, a scrappy yet meticulous up-and-comer in the indie comic book world. They talk about Bobby’s journey developing his incipient career while balancing family and two jobs (the second of which he took to pay for his comic book habit). All of us can learn a lot from this guy, and if you’re anything like David, you can take away a little bit of inspiration as well.
