A long time ago… but lesser long ago than it was before, but more recent than it was when it started.. or…
Look, there’s a new Star Wars thing and we talk about it!
Breaking from our usual ‘movie’ tradition – we’re going the super internet geek route and taking a trailer down. What’s to come? What does it reveal? What DOESN’T reveal, and what do we see as the future of the franchise.
That’s all coming up on this week’s SomethingSomethingcast…
Ok, here we go!
Note – This week’s closing song is: Pannonia Allstars Ska Orchestra – Star Wars – Imperial Reggae
♫ In the not too distant future…
On Thursday on Netflix…
The Mads are at it again! This time, they’ve taken the Somethings hostage and before they can be set free they have to review their favorite episodes of the B-Movie-Riffathon of MST3k!
Ok, so there are no Mad Scientists. There’s no SOL. There’s simply an episode of your favorite podcast. That doesn’t mean it isn’t a topic after their own heart, and with the new season coming out Thursday on Netflix, no better time to talk about it!
So repeat to yourself it’s just a show, and you should really just relax… unless you listen to us in your car. Then don’t relax, that would be horrible.
As has become a tradition of the Somethingcast, we watch a lot of Netflix.
That’s not the tradition.. it’s a fact.. but it isn’t the tradition I’m speaking of. I’m talking about when a new Marvel show appears on our queue, we call on the one and only @Ungajje himself, Tim Stevens. If you aren’t aware of Tim’s work at Marvel.com, just go.. we’ll wait.
But for a show like Iron Fist where there is so much to unpack, we needed someone to balance out our chi when it came to the martial arts featured in the show, so we also called in @KungFuDriveIn, himself, Jeof Vita. If you aren’t aware of Jeof’s podcast, Kung-Fu Drive-In, just go.. we’ll wait.
The four of us have been chosen to Defend you from what is to come next… unless you already watched Iron Fist. Then you’re beyond our help.
So spoilers abound, but no matter what… ok, here we go!
Five creatures of great power, united for a common goal.
I, of course, am talking about the folks over at AfterbuzzTV.
The Somethings are joined by the whole of the giant robot forming cast of their review and report show for Voltron: Legendary Defender. We have Katie Cullen, Mark Donica, Megan Salinas, Somethingcast old friends Emma Fyffe, and via chatroom Alexis Torres.
It is a loud and raucous affair, just how we like it.
So everybody, get ready!
FORM FEET AND LEGS!
FORM ARMS AND BODY!
AND I’LL FORM…. THE… Uhm… ….the… somehing.. ..you know.. the .. top part thinky thingy.
With the craziness of our Patreon radio drama, we might have a little bit of horror on the mind.
The Somethings are talking one of the most interesting shows on television in American Horror Story. British style season per story direction. Old actors finding new life, and old themes finding new spins. Whether it’s fighting your way out of a hotel with doors that lead to nowhere, or hanging with the coolest Coven in the Big Easy, the Somethings have their favs.
So settle in and, as always, spoilers abound.
Ok, here we go.
The Somethings know some people.
I mean, we’ve been around the world long enough to have collected a small and powerful group of friends… or at least people who keep cashing the check.
This week we have the honor and distinction to talking with friend and game designer Andy Parks of Quixotic games about his new Kickstarter, Dungeon Alliance.
Do you like board games? Do you like dungeons? Do you like beans? Do you like George Wendt?
Well two out of four of those are featured prominently in this episode.

Our music today deserves a plug too.. as Hatton discovered it, and it’s badass:

Okay, here we go:
Sometimes someone leaves this world with a mission still in their heart. Whether they were murdered or someone they loved needs vengeance – sometimes… just sometimes.. the spirit of the Crow summons them back to this world and acts as their totem to invincible power. Unless you know magic. Or hurt the crow. Or are satan. Or.. invent another rule.
That’s right – the boys are heading into the dark streets of the world of the gothy macabre and looking at the world of the Crow. We’ve watched all 4 movies (yes.. there are 4 of them) and ranked them from best to worst so that you didn’t have to even consider watching them.
It can’t rain all the time… I mean, it could, but then we would be watching Waterworld.
A long time ago, the Somethings started with Connery… and then they moved on to Lazenby and Moore.. and now they’ve arrived at the next of the Bond Series. Almost caught up, we’re seeing Dalton and Brosnan get their step up at the mic.
From Bond music to Bond girls to Bond geekery, the boys bring their last episode at Studio 3 with a special announcement about our Patreon!
So, prepare for Something… shaken.. not stirred.. and somehow a nuclear engineer.
A long time ago.. on a podcast somewhere in New Jersey…
It’s 2017 – and we are back with our first episode of the year. Working completely against type, we’re talking about a little-known indie film about of young upstart kids making their way in a world where the adults seem out to get them.
That’s right – Star Wars own Rogue One!
If you haven’t seen the movie, you are warned – there is absolutely no part of this episode that isn’t a spoiler.
Welcome to a new year of the Somethings! Ok, here we go!
♫ Oh you better watch out..
You better not cry…
You better listen to this episode
Or not.. whatever, I’m not your HR Rep ♫
Joining us from the IJOV – we have Marcus from Deadpan Fury, we have Eric from Two-Legged Tie, and we have Tony from Nyrdcast – and we decide to have ourselves a little Christmas Party. What goes on from there is… well.. I would love to say it is an episode about our favorite Christmas memories and shows and movies, but it isn’t… it’s almost better. It’s a bunch of idiots getting together and spreading some holiday buffoonery.
So enjoy everyone – and from Rob & Hatton, have a happy holidays.
