We all like ourselves a little bit of television.
We also like ourselves the earworms that lodge into your head for 30 minutes and beyond. So Hatton’s taken a few. Rob’s taken a few. And they are going head to head to find out who has the best line-up.
And a battle as important as this needs an important guest. So we got our friend and co-host of ‘THIS IS IMPORTANT‘, Kyle!
If you are looking to find other interesting and random things match up, be sure to check-out Steve & Kyle’s show, and get updates on their Twitter
For now though – find out who won the THEME MUSIC CHALLENGE!
It’s time again for everybody’s favorite SomethingGimmick! THE WHEEL OF THINGS!
The last time, the Somethings talked on about Dragonlance. This time it’s a contest episode.
We’ve done movie posters before, but what about that one little sentence that tries to drag you into the flick?
He was a flint. She was a steel. Sparks fly when they meet.
So can we figure out movies based on those short snippits? Oh, there’s only one way to find out!
Ok, here we go!
♫ Here we are… born to cast pods… ♫
That’s right, it’s time for one of those shows that was inevitable. It’s Clan Hatton & Clan McRob as we talk about one of the most long-legged, long-lived, fantasy… sci-fi *sigh* series that defined many a’geek.
It’s Highlander time!
So grab your katana and beware the planet Zeist.. the boys are Gathering.
And if you worry about anything.. just realize.. it’s a kind of magic!

Hey thanks for understanding the lateness. LET US NEVER DISCUSS IT AGAIN!
When a movie starts, ‘Two cops with nothing left to lose’ or ‘Two best friends on a mission’ or ‘An unlikely duo of…’
Well, that’s a buddy flick and it’s a sub-genre unto itself. Hell, this show is pretty much a buddy flick turned audio.
So join a hard-nosed cop on a mission, and an unlikely best friend with nothing left to lose as Podcast Rob and Hatton take a cross country trip as fast as they can through the PodscapeVerse. Party time, excellent!
Ok, here we go!

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.
