In the last month or two a documentary came out talking about one of the strangest theories of the last couple decades.. is it a sign that perhaps we were wrong about the make up of our universe or is it the inevitable problem of what happens when everybody finds a friend on the internet?
Well, join Podcast Rob and Hatton on Episode 134as they deep dive into the documentary Behind The Curve, available on Netflix, which discusses the possibility that this planet we all know and love (planet here meaning a celestial body moving in an elliptical orbit around a star.)

You wake up and go about your day as you normally do. You get dressed and ready, have a minimal breakfast, and head into work. Given the boredom of your day, you decide to see what podcasts have been updated. Your eyes grow wide with glee seeing that your favorite podcast has a new episode!
You decide you’ll save that for later, first you are going to listen to the Somethings talk about Netflix’s Black Mirror’s Choose Your Own Adventure movie, Bandersnatch.
Hatton’s back! This time he’s bringing old time Somethingcast Alum Podcast Rob, remember him?
We have some show updates as well as we take it to the ring to discuss Netflix’s and Jenji Kohen’s big summer party. Driving in a wood panel van straight into the 80’s with the big hair, big gimmicks, and big coke addictions… that’s right – it’s GLOW time!
So what do the boys think of the squared circle filled with the ladies and Marc Maron? Well you should settle in and find out.
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.
I mean, come on.. we’ve all bought into one thing or another, right? Whether it is the Piltdown Man, the supposed Missing Link – or if its any number of Think Geek projects, there is always someone out to get you.
Well not us – of course not – never us… we promise… What we do want to do is tell you about some of our favorite historical hoaxes. From recent internet stuffs to pieces from the past, Hatton and Rob are talking about the biggest hoaxes the world has ever seen and the people that fell for them.
Find out more – and ok here we go! OH WAIT – first, go check out our fledging and just starting archive over at Youtube
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.
It’s time to go back to the umop apisdn (that doesn’t work if you use a weird font) ..anyway, it’s time to head on back and see what’s going on in the eeriest of Indiana’s – that’s right, Netflix’s bingers dream has returned for nine more episodes of small town life with a Lovecrafty spin.
So find out what the boys thought about the return of all of the kids we know with a few folks we were equal parts thrilled and horrified to see.
So get your eggos and settle in – it’s time to get our paddles.
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.
♫ 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!
