Powetcast 141: Marvel vs DC

Our semi-annual roundtable debate series continues! After determing the fate of Star Wars and Star Trek, following the selection of a fictional President, our panel of experts will now debate Marvel VS DC. The results will shock you. Mostly because they’re inconclusive. We’ll have to do it again.

Sean, Extra Zero, Adam, and Captain Genius join me on this journey into centuries of continuity and endless fanboy crying. We’ll talk comics, movies, cartoons, TV, and T-Shirts.

Join the discussion! Leave a comment for which side you support: Marvel or DC. You don’t even have to listen to the podcast. Just say something.

This week Jim from NSFW returns to the cast to cover third base!

Powetcast 139: Animal Cruelty

We earn our “explicit” tag once again this week. Comedy runs high as we discuss Jetpack Joyride, Looper, Resident Evil: Damnation, PETA’s treatment of Pokemon, Battlefield Bad Company, and GI Joe Kreo.

We’ll also offer up suggestions for Halloween movies with reccomended scary movies.

Cue the sad Sarah Mclachlan song.

Powetcast 138: Teenage Mutant Nightmare Fuel

The new fall TV season starts, and we talk about the return of Young Justice, the new direction for Green Lantern, the reboot of the Turtles, and try to define what it means to be not pretty. We also talk about Dredd and how no one saw it except for Adam, and Zac complains that the new Halo game has too many guns.

Debate: Who is the ugliest man in hollywood: Marty Feldman or Brian Posehn?

Powetcast 137: Fully Retractable

In this episode we bring back the fourth chair! Ernie emerges from exile to talk about life, love, Xbox Live. Captain Genius consults the GI Joe Field Manual. Adam is bewildered by animated nerds. Zac tried to keep it all together and not get distracted by the rest of his life happening behind him.

Homework assignment: In time for next week’s show, watch Star Wars Despecialized. No direct download links, but those willing to go where those with peg legs and eye patches only dare should come up successful.

Powetcast 136: Killed By Gangnam


Sometimes a meme gets by the best of us. We can live on the internet and not see it until an elderly relative likes it on facebook in front of us.
This week we talk Finding Nemo, Cabin In The Woods, and Seth MacFarlane on SNL. In the news we’ll talk Robocop, the Wii U, why Canada’s internet sucks, and finding ourselves on the brink of war with Iran. Also: Gangnam style, Pikachu, and The Green Ranger.
This is a much better episode than last week.

Ben Folds Five and Fraggle Rock – “Do It Anyway”




I’m a huge fan of Ben Folds Five. Caught them by accident on a side stage at Lollapalooza in 1996 while waiting for The Ramones and went on to see them live eight more times before they disbanded in 2000. They reunited last year and will release their 4th album, The Sound Of Life And Mind on September 18, 2012.
And now to talk about the above clip. The music video for the first single “Do It Anyway” has been produced in cooperation with Chris Hardwick and Lisa Henson, heir to Jim Henson productions. It features the return of another long dormant band, Fraggle Rock. Out of production since 1987, Fraggles have made sparse appearances in Muppet productions over the last decades, thought a feature film remains in pre-production at the Weinstein Company since 2005.
The combination of a beloved band and beloved children’s show is nothing new. In fact, Jim Henson Productions made a video pairing The Muppet Show and Weezer in 2002. Still, the effort is warmly welcomed, as this heralds the return of a band and a TV show that has only been in reruns for most of my adult life.

Can anyone explain why Anna Kendrick was in this video?



Powetcast 135: Too Long; Didn’t Reddit

Rehearsal and preparedness are important, which is exactly why the first chunk of this show has Zac and Adam riffing on reddit, Reality TV, and iPhone 5 before Captain Genius finally reigns them in.

We’ll talk about how “Airplane!” is supposedly the funniest movie ever made, the absolute craziness that is Cloud Atlas, and the potential for sequels to Thor and Star Trek in 2013. Zac also reviews the geek potential for his coworkers.
