Episode 48: Two Grumpy Middle-Aged Men

Greetings and Salutations!

This week, George watched the Netflix special, Invader Zim: Enter The Florpus; he finally watched Spider-Man: Into The Spider-verse on Amazon Prime Video, and has ventured further into The Wheel of Time Saga care of Audible.

Meanwhile Travis watched Season 2 of the Netflix show, Mindhunter, and the Dirty Harry movie, The Dead Pool.

We also talk about Disney+ officially coming to Australia, the future of Spider-man and the MCU, and The Matrix 4.

Episode 47: GLOW dims slightly, and Wu Assassins mildly satisfies

Hey folks,

This week Travis and George didn’t have a huge amount of time to watch things, but they still cobbled together a show for ya!

Travis spoiled himself by getting a wire-free Oculus Rift. He also dove back into the world of Far Cry 5 — or more specifically the Vietnam expansion missions.
Next he watched Season 3 of Glow on Netflix. While it started well, he felt it lost a little gusto towards the end.

Then Travis (and George slightly) talk about the new album from Slipnot; We Are Not Your Kind. It’s good so far. It’s different, but good.

George then confesses his love of Meat Loaf and he re-listened to Bat out of Hell: Back Into Hell. He also consumed the Netflix special, Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling, and Wu Assassins. Both shows kinda underwhelmed, but would probably be enjoyed in some fashion.

Episode 46: The Boys, '70's Movies, and NOS4A2

Episode 46: The Boys, '70's Movies, and NOS4A2

This week Travis went down memory lane, visiting 1970's cinema-land and (in particular) San Francisco. He watched Dirty Harry, and Bullit.

Both Trav, and George smashed through Season 1 of The Boys. While Travis really enjoyed it, George found that it was missing emotional gut-punching to pair with the more visceral imagery.

George also binged NOS4A2, a supernatural, horror series featuring Zachary Quinto as the near-titular sucker. He's not your usual vampire, and the heroes of this series are an interesting bunch. A fever-dream of a story that's hard to explain.

Lastly, George listened to the new album from the Melbourne-base group, The Taskey Brothers: Run Home Slow.

Episode 45: Finally watching things again!

Episode 45: Finally watching things again!

After a few weeks of house moving, and finishing a book, Travis and George actually had some time to watch some things.

George has binge-watched Season 1 of Another Life on Netflix, he re-watched Alita Battle Angel (now available on physical and digital release), and Hellboy (2019).

Meanwhile, Travis has met someone. . . or rather he's met a few someones. . . he's met The Boys (on Amazon Prime), and he's in love.

He's also discovered enjoyment in a series called Shtisel, a series from Israel.

Sadly there was a screw-up with the recording via Zoom this week and we lost the last third of the show.

Hopefully we will be able to find it somehow.

Episode 43: Spider-Man: Far From Home Spoilercast

In this new episode Travis and George talk through their thoughts of the latest Spider-Man movie, lament not having more of Jake Gyllenhaal. George talks a little about the new season of Stranger Things on Netflix, as well as two audiobooks, Too Like The Lightning by Ada Palmer, and The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.

Elsewhere, Travis continues to morph into an alternate reality version of himself as he has found yet another musical he enjoyed, Come from Away. He also lambasts the trailers for the new Jumanji movie, Hobbs and Shaw, and The Lion King.

Episode 42: Is Travis being that which he so hates?

Episode 42: Is Travis being that which he so hates?

This week, Travis reviews Toy Story 4, I am Mother on Netflix and the first few hours of The Last of Us on PS4 . . . he remains woefully m’eh! Meanwhile George started watching Hanna on Amazon Prime and is finding its pacing chances from the movie tough to digest.

Episode 40: Brightburn . . . or Brightbart?

Episode 40: Brightburn . . . or Brightbart?

This week Travis gives his impressions on Brightburn, George has been rewatching the joyfully brilliant Studio Ghibli movies.

Travis and George also consider what it could be if DC/Warner made an Elseworlds movie akin to Brightburn, but for Superman... and Clark Kent joined Brightbart, supported Trump and it all went weird.

Episode 36: Star Wars Appeasment and TV Binge Watching

Episode 36: Star Wars Appeasment and TV Binge Watching

In this week’s show, we talk through our thoughts on Star Wars Episode 9’s teaser trailer.

Travis watched a limited release chiller/thriller movie called The Hole in the Ground. He also started watching Black Summer on Netflix — a spin-off show from Z-Nation, but more serious.

George meanwhile watched the first episode of Game of Thrones Season 8, smashed through season 2 of Westworld, and began watching True Blood for the first time.

Episode 33: They're Gonna do it, so we might as well do it first!
