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.

We go back to the world of animation for Day 9 as we look at the Xmas, not Christmas, themed episode of "Futurama" called "A Tale Of Two Santas" from 2001.

In this episode, Santa is actually a robot, but instead of being loved by all, he's feared due to a clitch in his programing where he thinks everyone has been naughty, so it's up to Bender, Fry and the crew to try and save the day.

It'd Day 8, and today we go all international with a visit to Dog River, Saskatchewen, and the off-beat Canadian humour that it "Corner Gas".

Mitch is a big fan of the series, however Joe has never seen it before, but both got a lot of laughs out of this epsiode, Season 3 Episode 13 "Merry Gasmas".

As we head into the second half of the 12 days of Christmas we go back to the 80's for another of our favourites growing up, with episode 9 of "Night Court" season 6 "The Night Court Before Christmas".

What happens when court ballif, Bull, accidently gives away the evidence for a case, and just exactly what is guest star John Astin's relationship with Santa?

Day 6 sees us with one of Mitch's picks, as Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence star as "Melissa and Joey" in this epsiode called "A New Kind Of Christmas" from Season 3.

What happens when Mel's sister comes home from prison on day release to spend Christmas with the family? And why do two grown men in their 40's have such a soft spot for Melissa Joan Hart?
