Ten whole episodes! This one’s kind of long, so you may want to break it into chunks when you listen. We start off talking about the latest episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, then we get into Star Wars films, which we fell in love with in 1977. Along the way, we somehow diverge into 1980s sci-fi films and the short-lived, early ’80s 3-D movie revival as well as discussing our appreciation for WWII veterans. There is some discussion of plastic surgery, and we make it back around to The Walking Dead before wrapping up with a jumbled mess of sleep-deprived rambling.
Number 9 is a Very Special episode of Up Late! For better or worse. This one’s a good 90 minutes, and we travel back to the ’70s again, make our way through the ’80s with a discussion of Diff’rent Strokes, but we then jump to the future with a discussion of the cool sci-fi adventure film Snowpiercer! Not only are the French responsible for Snowpiercer as it was originally a French comicbook, but Pat blames them for both creating Godzilla in the original film and for the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The episode wraps up with a discussion of the latest episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead and what happened to Beth.

8 episodes in just over three weeks? Well, this time we talk about whether or not Michael Keaton is the Sean Connery of Batmans. What the hell does that mean, you ask? You’ll have to listen to find out. Rus declares his love for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and Pat couldn’t care less, but we do agree on the awesomeness of Patrick Swayze. Road House! We also decide that with Highlander movies, much like the immortals themselves, there can be only one!
Right on the heels of episode 6, we’re live with Episode 7! Why record again so soon? So that we could discuss the movie schedule released yesterday from Marvel Studios for comicbook movies through 2019! We discuss upcoming superhero movies from Marvel, DC (Warner Bros.), Fox, and Sony. Actually getting to the topic of the day proves to be a challenge for us, however — once again — as we travel back to the ’70s to talk about childhood celebrity crushes, bad superhero shows, and Silver Spoons. For better or worse, this is our longest podcast yet, clocking in at 1 hour and 22 minutes, but there are plenty of spots to pause and resume listening later, so don’t be afraid to dive in!
Spoiler alert for Live, Die, Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (and others).
Watch for a new podcast later this week!
It’s mostly a zombie episode… mostly. We start out with a recap of previous topics like cartoons and Avengers: Age of Ultron, but we dig into the latest episode of The Walking Dead, starting at the 12:45 mark, so stop there to avoid spoilers. We wrap up with a discussion about Zack Snyder & James Gunn‘s 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead.
Check out Panel to Screen for Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead, comparing the comics to the tv show.
We’re back, lickety-split! This shorter, sweeter episode deals with comic book art and artists as disparate as Robert Crumb (right) and Walt Simonson, as well as our reviews of the latest X-Men film, X-Men: Days of Future Past, recently released on Bluray and DVD. We forget to discuss a few important aspects of that movie, like the breakout character Quicksilver, but we’ll try to get back to them at a later time. Also, we open the podcast with a new Red Hot Rebellion tune!

Tangents a-plenty! In this episode we focus on three specific topics, but we do end up veering down Tangent Road several times, going from the just-released Marvel Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer to Spanky and the Little Rascals (Our Gang) to Stan Lee then back to Avengers (all of it actually tied together). We discuss the latest episode of AMC’s The Walking Dead, starting at the 24 minute mark, talking about everything from sustenance after the zombie apocalypse to komodo dragons and how they’re poisonous but not venomous, all related in some way to The Walking Dead. We wrap up the zombie talk at 1:06 (and 45 seconds) and then finish off the podcast talking about Star Trek: Prelude to Axanar, a short film produced as a “fan film” but with the production values and cast on par with something Paramount itself might produce; great Trek stuff!
The next episode will be shorter, we promise!

After we give props to Red Hot Rebellion for their killer tunes, this episode covers everything from the Super Friends to ’70s cartoons and TV shows like What’s Happening to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and space-racism. And more about our favorite comic artists, like Travis Charest and Art Adams! We wrap up with a discussion about the Season 5 premiere of The Walking Dead (Spoilers!) starting at around the 40 minute mark.
Men of their words, Rus and Pat return with another podcast!
In Episode 2, we speculate on how SNL cast member Jan Hooks was taken from us prematurely, then we provide you with a tangent filled ride through comic geek-dom, which includes a discussion on the new Flash TV show, comic movies and our favorite comic illustrators.
