  1. To me Agents of SHIELD is a bad version of torchwood. Captain Jack can’t die, Coulson comes back from the dead/can’t die or whatever. Both are spin offs of fan favorite characters and are worked into the continuity of its source. Except for the fact that Agents of SHIELD is falling on its face and Torchwood was great.

    • And Torchwood, a inferior version of Angel.

  2. Glad to see the trashing of Agents of Shield. It makes me sad but Marvel just needs to let DC/WB maintain the tv front. And animation front.

    • One show and marvel just needs to stay away from tv completely?

      • For the time being, yeah.

      • Well, even the cartoons Marvel has now are pretty crappy compared to what they have had in the past. A lot of people across the internet and such, including myself, put most of the blame on the head of Marvel’s TV department, Jeph Loeb, and I believe they mentioned that briefly in this podcast as well.

        I believe that you wouldn’t even have to change any of the current production teams on any of these shows if they could just replace some of the TV department heads that make the (poor) bigger decisions. Like they sorta harped on in the podcast, I think if Kevin Fiege could take over Loeb’s position, at least where AoS is concerned, the show would automatically see improvement within the next episode.

        • I don’t get why the art, animation and backgrounds look so cheap and non-human now compared to the ’90s Marvel cartoons.

  3. And you’re right Rob, Coulson and Marvel connections are the only reasons I keep watching the show. Unfortunately.

  4. And you’re right Rob, Coulson and Marvel connections are the only reasons I watch the show. Unfortunately.


      • I think Rob is right in thinking Paul Rudd will look good in drag.

        • You ever see the YouTube videos of the guy miming songs on Chatroulette? That dude looks good in drag. #fact

          • Oh I just meant he will since hes playin Aunt-man.

            • nothin, okay.

              • Haha… Auntie jokes never get respect!

  5. this episode was really funny, i like when you guys go at each other and your news stories

    Marvel just stinks at tv, I havent watched shield and dont intend to, arrow ftw, but ive been burned ever since spectacular spiderman and wolverine and the xmen were cut short, not unlike dcs amazing young justice.

  6. I personally though Anchorman 2 was funnier than the first one.
    I was wondering if any of you watch- Broadchurch?

    • *thought…

    • I’m looking to start Broadchurch soon. The trustworthy Kevin Yeoman has been pushing it on me for quite some time. He didn’t say HELICOPTER though!

  7. How sexist and misandrist of you, dismissing Nathan Fillion for Ant-Man based on his weight. It surely is all about the acting chops, and not about the body size, right? RIGHT?!! ;)

    They did have the lines about reboots in 21 Jump Street, though. I quote: “We’re reviving a canceled undercover police program from the ’80s and revamping it for modern times. You see the guys in charge of this stuff lack creativity and are completely out of ideas, so all they do now is recycle sh*t from the past and expect us all not to notice.”

    If it weren’t for Coulson and three name drops every episode (like mentioning Captain America’s record), I would never imagine that Agents of SHIELD is supposed to be set in the MCU. They couldn’t make it feel more disconnected from the movies if they tried. And they can’t wait till next season with cameos of movie characters, because if it keeps going like that, there won’t be a next season. As I mentioned after binge watching Arrow: Agents of SHIELD feels extremely empty in comparison. I’m totally with Kofi there. Right now AoS is like Tahiti. They try to keep telling us that it’s a magical place, but I simply don’t buy it. It’s watchable and entertaining, but it’s far from being a great show.

    I watched Firefly week-to-week, and it was awesome, even out of sequence.

    Just to reiterate: yes, Elementary is really good.

    Liev Schreiber is great. The only movie with him that I didn’t like was the The Manchurian Candidate remake. I haven’t seen all of them, though.

    The Leviathan season of Supernatural is definitely the low point of the show. It goes back uphill from there, although the occasional geek-centered episode is still annoying as hell. There is a reason why I don’t watch The Big Bang Theory and I don’t want that kind of stuff in Supernatural.

    Merry Christmas!

    • Lols, not saying Fillion can’t do it. Just saying Richard Castle should cut back if he wants to climb cliffs.

    • Thank you!

  10. On httyd
    Kofis right in theyre more like cats
    back arching
    general mannerisms but theres some dog in there too.

    I like httyd because it has a character who unlike other youth films, shows how useful learning is.

    • And the eyes.

      • thats too, they have cats eyes.
        The smaller baby ones turn their heads like dog though.

  12. Did you guys ever discuss the Interstellar trailer? Admittedly, there isn’t really much discuss, because not much is actually shown, but I expected you guys to at least dedicate a segment to it.

    • Behind-the-scenes we did. It really shows little and isn’t at all memorable so when a full trailer comes we’ll def talk about it :)

      • Yeah, that’s what I figured.

  13. When y guys are going to do a “Rants and Raves” on SOA & HBO:Tremé?

  14. I’m with Kofi. It was funny! And I noticed my wife was laughing at different things than I did. “I will shoot you in the cooter with a BB gun!” – I cracked up. My wife, not so much.

    BTW, listen to yourselves, you all were laughing about different parts of the film and sounded quite jolly while discussing it. Give in, let your inner critic go and indulge in the stupidity.
