It is easy to bash a movie, but doing it while being more entertaining than what you are reviewing takes skill, which this podcast fails. You review Zapped Again! as a movie that anyone would take seriously? Also, Key Club, which you ripped on exists, look it up.

Interesting perspective on films

Austin and Albert bring an interesting perspective on films and share my own love of comic book films. It's also refreshing to hear someone be open about being autistic and how it's often misrepresented in TV and film.

Welcome back! This week we have frequent guest Zephyr back for a special update to our State of Criticism cast. For this discussion we focus on Not So Awesome, a document released by former members of Channel Awesome documenting what happened during their tenure at the site. We go over our thoughts on the document, as Zephyr, a long-time Wall fan, unloads on Nostalgia Critic's latest parody video on The Wall. Tune in!

You can read the document here, and draw your own conclusions on what to make of this whole debacle.

Rank #8: TSHS #53: Tales From the Hiatus!

Podcast cover
Read more

Ahoy, shipmates! We are Captains Ninny and Alfonzo, back from sailing the Haitus seas, and boy do we have some stories for you! Everything from updates from the nerd world, including Spiderman and Steven Universe, to work stories, to gaming obsessions, we're back and we have it all!

Note: We have decided moving forward to prerecord the program, rather than do live shows. What we lose in the live audience feature, we gain in better regularity in the release schedule (including being able to release the youtube and audio podcast formats simultaneously), better tech with smoother visuals and way less technical glitches, and what we feel is just an all-out better experience. We appreciate each and every one of you and cannot do the show with your loving support! Don't stop interacting with us, leave a comment, like, subscribe, email, give us precious, precious feedback! Until next time: YARRRR!

Rank #9: TFR 112: Off-Topic

Podcast cover
Read more

DISCLAIMER: This episode was recorded on April 18, 2018, and serves right now as a time capsule. This was before both Infinity War and Endgame came out, among other various things that have changed drastically in the past year and a half.

We talk a dozen random subjects, movies we've seen, the state of Channel Awesome at the time, upcoming things we are excited about (that turned out with mixed results), and some extra Lola shenanigans kept in for good measure (because she's grown since too)! Please enjoy!

Side note: This is the last of the backlog, and after a year or so of lagging behind, we are now caught up to the present! Huzzah! The editor will continue to strive to keep this cast regular and not so laggy. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Rank #10: TFR 111: Spiderman '77 (W/Guest Paul Adolina)

Podcast cover
Read more

DISCLAIMER: This cast was recorded a year ago, before the Sony/Marvel Split, before Spiderman: Far From Home came out, and well before Endgame came out, so there are some.. unfortunate anachronisms. We kept them in because it's a weird time capsule which serves as a stark highlight for recent events.

Hello and welcome! This week we delve into some Marvel Cinematic AU with returning guest Paul Andolina with the 1977 Spiderman Made-for-TV movie!

We also briefly discuss other '70s Marvel Movie attempts and wax about how far we've come and what the future may hold.

You can find the writings of Paul Adolina at his website!Wresting With FilmAnd be sure to follow the associated Facebook page!
