A couple of weeks ago, the world lost a legend in not just comics, but in entertainment. So much of our entertainment world in the last twenty years has been painted with the colors that Stan Lee helped create that it is impossible to think of a world that never had him.
So join the Somethings as we pay tribute to a man who didn’t just get us to Make Mine Marvel, but gave us our No Prize and made us all True Believers.
We have a few things to talk about, and we get into it in the first ten of the episode, but maybe you read these things… do you? I never know.
Anyway, September is an important month for the Somethings.. we are now EVERY GAW’DARN WEEK! ..sort of.
Every week on your RSS Feed (or however you get your Something) you are going to get 4 “shows” SomethingCast – Our bread and butter format of babbling incoherently about weird things we like. Dramatic-ish Readings – A unique monologue featuring characters that weren’t in the movie you’re listening to. Something In Review – A new review of a new or old film, revisited or discussed for the first time! The End – Where we watch the last episode of a show.. again, sometimes without having seen anything else.
But today, you get SUPERHEROES! More specifically, Superhero Teams. There have been hundreds of teams and line-ups of teams, and we settle in and discuss some of our favorites. Whether you dig on Byrne’s X-Men or Giffen’s Justice League, there is likely some detail we have screwed up.
It was inevitable… them making a Deadpool 2. So join the Somethings as they sit and breakdown the Merc With A Mouth’s Second Attempt At Greatness!
And where that’s the bulk of the episode, there is a lot more to talk about.
This episode, for the foreseeable, is the last for Podcast Rob. As you’ll hear as the bookends to our discussion about Deadpool, sometimes you just need to shuffle some things up to make life work, and for now, the show has to go. I (this is Hatton by the way) wish him nothing but the best. I hope once his world settles down, he’ll come back around, if I have a microphone, there will always be a second one waiting for him.
With that said, at the time of this recording, Rob’s father was hospitalized due to a constant battle with cancer. Since the recording of this episode, his father has passed. On behalf of Rob and his sister, I’ve set up this GoFundMeaccount to help them keep their head above water through these hard times. If you can, please help out.
I mean, there won’t be any in this paragraph, but in this episode – we barely get 3 minutes in before we’re all ‘Thanos killed Dumbledore’ and ‘Captain America was Bruce Willis the whole time’. It’s like we have done our best to keep our silence to wait for this very episode!
And better than bursting with excitement, just the two of us, we brought along some friends!
We have Kristel (Twitter: @yeagerkristel) and Nicole (Twitter:@nicole4783) from Two Girls, One Mic, which you can find on the Geeks World Wide Podcast Network (thegww.com) and they hang with us and talk about our favorite moments, the moments that fell short, and nerd out over the decade it took for us to get here.
So grab your Tesseract, snap your fingers, and ok, here we go!
You seem to be doing ok. You’re taking some anger management courses. The agency is doing ok. You have an associate in Malcolm. What could go wrong?
Probably a bad question in Hells Kitchen, eh?
That’s right, the Somethings are back tackling the hard drinking hard hitting purple fearing badass bitch of the Netflix MU, and we tell you what we think from top to bottom. Did we love it? Did we hate it? There’s only one way to find out. Smile and click below.
And if you are a fan of the show, you know what that means. Marvel episode. Netflix episode. Oh.. that’s right.. Tim Stevens Episode.
The three of us slowly pick apart the enemy and drive our hammers hard into the bones of the newest Netflix Marvel U show. Did lightning strike again like it did with Daredevil or did it swing and miss like Iron Fist? Shots will be fired, so get yourselves cocked, locked, and loaded… …uhm..gun.
If you want a little background on our favorite Marvel buddy, you can find out about Mr. Steven’s Curricula Vitae at Tim Stevens Is Ungajje – His work at Marvel.com– Or lastly, be his friend on Twitter.
Last but not least, we would like to welcome our new sponsor: Quixotic Games and their new game Dungeon Alliance, available for order at your local gaming spot.
But there are a couple guys who like movies even more than us – probably more than you!
That’s why when we decided to do an episode about the upcoming films of 2018, we called the men who know what’s what about film. Justin & Nick, the Epic Film Guys! This cinematic twosome have been talking the talk for around 150 episodes about good movies, bad movies, their favs, and go deep in the well on what makes a great piece of cinema. We met them on our journey through the #PodernFamily hashtag and definitely found some similar spirits in the way they get things done.
You can check them out at their website here, their twitter, or instagram – and give them a like share & subscribe via all your podcasty softwares.
Also – please take a look at their upcoming Livestream-a-thon to raise money for the Cancer Research Institute. It’s an amazing cause, and you can bet we’ll be doing what we can to help them out.
What movies are you looking forward to – comment below .. but first, here we go.
