WELCOME TO SEPTEMBER!
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.
So put on your cape, because it’s time to fly…
Ok, here we go!
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 GoFundMe account to help them keep their head above water through these hard times. If you can, please help out.
Now – with all that said…
Here we go!
First off. SPOILERS.
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!
Ten years in the making culminates this week.
So what are the Somethings going to do? They’re going to breakdown the entirety of the MCU into easily digestible chunks and rate every movie that has lead up to the Infinity War!
Who made it into Hatton and Rob’s top 3? Well, you are about to find out. So get your bling’d out glove, and lets Assemble.
But before we do, go check out Hatton’s debut novel, TRIO, available on Amazon Kindle.
And, more importantly, be sure to check out the Epic Film Guys, Livestream For The Cure. Help them fight raise awareness and money to help fight cancer.
With all that said… let’s get to ranking!
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.
Two quick asides. The first, we want to congratulate our sponsor Quixotic Games for selling out of the first printing of Dungeon Alliance. Here’s to a hundred more.
Second, at the beginning of the episode there are a couple of words about our friends the Epic Film Guys. Please, check out their Livestream For The Cure on May 18-20th.
Now though… time to go!
It’s time for a little one batch two batch…
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.
Ok here we go!
The Somethings like themselves some movies…
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.
Take the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. A loud-mouthed P.I. with superpowers. A bullet-proof man who swears to watch out for Harlem. And.. ..well.. Danny Rand.
Push them together and what do you get – you get us bringing back the Somethingcast’s favorite guest, Mr. Ungajje himself, Tim Stevens!
As always, when the binge-worthy Marvel World rears its color-coded head, we breakdown what’s going on – what we like – what we hate – and Tim brings up the average intelligence by knowing a lot more about the source material than either of us.
So settle in and find out if this show is worth Defending. Afterwards, head over to TimStevensIsUngajje to find out what more is going on with our ducet-toned bestie.
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!
They say you aren’t supposed to judge a book by its cover… well guess what… 5% of a comic book is it’s cover, so how about we judge a book by 5% of its content?
This week, the Something’s are going to the land of funnybooks where we discuss not the greatest covers that have ever come to comicdom, but our favorites. From Marvel to DC and everything in between – here are some of the comic covers that shaped our world. We’ve done our best to give you all of the information you need to follow along..
Ok, here we go!
