Screen Rant Underground Podcast Header SR Underground Ep. 8: Real Steel

The Screen Rant editorial team is back with episode eight of the Screen Rant Underground.

Join host Ben Kendrick as well as fellow SR editors Rob Keyes, Anthony Ocasio, and Kofi Outlaw as we tackle Netflix’s Qwikster do-over, contemplate a ‘Knightfall’ for The Dark Knight Rises, reminisce about The Simpsons legacy, revel in an inappropriate Ghostbusters parody, and duke it out over Hugh Jackman’s robot-fighting blockbuster, Real Steel.

Screen Rant Underground is available in the iTunes Music Store but if you’re not near your home computer, check out our eighth episode in the player below. As mentioned in previous posts, we’re still in the early stages of developing the show – so cut us a little slack as we get this thing off the ground.

Also, Screen Rant Underground is an EXPLICIT podcast. We don’t go out of our way to say controversial things or use explicit language but it does happen – so use discretion when playing the podcast at work and around young, or sensitive, ears.

  1. Quick question before I listen. Does the Dark Knight Rises Knightfall discussion have spoilers? I’m trying to avoid all spoilers I can before it comes out. Thanks.

    • ME –

      It’s mostly based on speculation not tangible spoilers BUT we do give a spoiler warning and suggest people skip ahead about 10 minutes if they’re avoiding Dark Knight Rises info.

      To be more specific – listen to the Netflix content then skip ahead to the 24:40 mark for our Simpsons discussion.

      • Cool. Thanks.

        • Sure thing. Thanks for listening!

  2. Oh, BOO, Kofi for poopin on “Ides of March”…that movie was great, you poser, lol…

  3. Totally think there is a connection between the robot builder guy and Atom. That is the conclusion I came to when I watched the movie.

    • Ya, I wish they would have been less subtle about that. Definitely up for interpretation but…
