TV & Film

Two fat nerds attack Movies, TV and Video Games!

Episodes

We start off this episode with a little bit of co-op gaming chat, then Mitch talks about his new release purchase, "Far Cry 5" before moving on to reality TV at it's worst in "Age Gap Love" and it's best with "Nailed It". Then Mitch was disappointed with the new series "Rise" and the re-boot of "Reboot", but we both dig the new animated "Corner Gas".

In movies, Mitch goes to the cinema to see "Pacific Rim: Uprising", is impressed with "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri" and Joe and his wife have differing opinions on "Annihilation" and "Spiderman: Homecoming" before both enjoying "Hurricane Bianca".

Then for our topic, seeing as it was Wrestlemania week, we talk about how we became wrestling fans growing up, meeting each other at the Prince Pat’s, how we got involved in the local scene, our thoughts on the actual Wrestlemania 34 event, and Joe gets emotional watching the new Andre The Giant HBO doco.

Inspired by our chat about bands and gigs on our last episode, for the mini this month we decided to look at our favourite made-up band movies.

Mitch goes with the classic mockumentory metal band Spinal Tap, from "This Is Spinal Tap" and Joe goes with the Oneders from the 1996 Tom Hanks written and directed "That Thing You Do!"

On the show this month Joe plays some "Viva Piñata: Party Animals" with his kids, and finishes off the some more "Borderlands 2" DLC before making the most of his new Netflix subscription and mainlining all of the new season of "Black Mirror" and the 90's themed "Everything Sucks". We also look at Joel McHale's new show "The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale" and Mitch finally uses his Amazon Prime to watch "The Tick".

In movies we briefly talk Marvel's "Black Panther" and Oscar winner "The Shape of Water", go a little bit spoilery on "Get Out", look at docos "Saving Bankys" and "Jiro Dreams of Sushi", and dive into 70's custom van culture with the unimaginatively titled "The Van".

The for our topic, inspired by our recent outing to see Pop Will Eat Itself, and Mitch's experience at Queen + Adam Lambert, we discuss our favourite concerts, as well as some tips on concert etiquette, Mitch's mosh related injuries, and the bizarre world of the Juggalos.

For this month’s mini we get passionate, maybe a little bit too passionate in some cases, about the new Netflix series, "Queer Eye".

It's an in-depth chat about the contestants, the make-overs, the new Fab 5, a breakdown of who we love and who we don't,  and how they compare to the original hosts of the 2003 version.

It is pretty spoiler heavy, so if you may want to watch the show before listening to this episode.

Episode 89 - Pod It Forward!

It's back to our old format this episode, so we start off by having a bit of a chat about gaming with more "Tekken 7" and "Oddworld: New & Tasty" for Joe, and the Hot Wheels expansion pack for "Forza Horizon 3" for Mitch before moving on TV where Joe has become a streaming service machine, signing up of both New Japan Pro Wrestling World and the WWE Network. On top of that he has also started Netflix and has gone head first into the trashy "Deep Fried Masters" and the slightly more highbrow "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" whereas Mitch is keeping it geeky with the new DC series "Black Lightning".

In movies, we've both been to the cinema to see the new "Jumaji" reboot, so we talk about that, as well as Mitch's trip to Imax with his son, the Netflix fantasy "Bright" and the George Lucas classic "American Graffiti".

Then for our topic this month, we "Pod It Forward" and show some love for a few of the newer additions to our podcast listening lists, including "The Guilty Feminist", "All Killa No Filla", "Edge & Christians Pod of Awesomeness", "Something to Wrestle", "Wizard and The Bruiser". "1D10T" and "Pitchface". Mitch even gets a couple of plugs in for his other podcasts, "Geekdudes" and "Hey, Hey It's the Podcast" too.

We're back for another season of our mini-episodes, and just in time for Valentine's Day!

So, as a tribute to the romance genre, we've put our own spin on it and look at our favourite romances, the David Lynch film "Wild At Heart" starring Nicholas Cage and Laura Dern for Mitch, and the Oliver Stone directed "Natural Born Killers" with Woody Harrelson, Juliette Lewis and a cast of thousands for Joe.

In a January tradition that we started six years ago with our very second podcast, this episode we look forward with our Great Expectations for 2018.

That's right, all the stuff we're excited about in the coming year for television and movies, plus a little bit of gaming thrown in too.

Seeing as we had so much to say we broke the end of year all media round up into two parts, so here is the second part with the boys covering live events including some musicals and wrestling shows, books, comics and movies.

We do go pretty spoiler heavy with the new Star Wars film, "The Last Jedi", so if you haven't seen it yet, you might want to turn off around the 1 hour 10 minute mark.

We're back for another year, so after a bit of a chat about our Christmas and New Year breaks, we jump right in to our review of 2017 and all the things we watched, did and played.

Seeing as we hadn't really had a chance to talk much about the year as we were doing the A to Z eps, we've had to break it into two parts, so for part one we look at gaming and TV.

We do go a little spoilery on Game Of Thrones and Stranger Things 2, so be warned if you haven't watched them yet.

For the last day of our 12 Days of Christmas Comedies we go with another modern favourite, with "White Lie Christmas", episode 10 of season 1 of the cleverly funny "My Name Is Earl" from 2005.

We also look back on this year's list and work out which were our picks of the bunch.

For our second last episode of the 12 Days of Christmas Comedies we go back to the heady days of the 80's for another one of our most loved sit-coms from when we were younger.

 

That's right, "Perfect Strangers", and episode 11, season 2 "A Christmas Story", where we see Balki and his cousin Larry overcoming adversity and celebrating Christmas in their own special way.

Day 10 is here, so today we go back to the 70's for one of our favourite British sit-coms with "Are You Being Served?".

There are lots of laughs, a liberal sprinkling of Christmas cheer, and a big helping of innuendo too, and not just Mrs. Slocombe's pussy.
