NOTE: Please forgive the mistake in this episode… I think it makes it funnier, but I forgot to add in a critical sound-effect. It’s always something, am I right?
This is it! We did it!
So what do we do.. we throw a party with two friends from the Inside Joke Outside Voice Network.
We got Rich from Married Marks and Eric from Two-Legged Tie and we just hang out and argue a bit.
What would you expect from us, really?
From ice cream flavors to top tv shows. It really is a party with a bunch of people who like to talk to each other.
Am I making you chomp at the bit for more? Oh, you better be… because here we go!
Ok here we go… and go.. and go… and we are celebrating our Year 4.
Where in years gone by we have found our way to the fabulous Wildpig Comics, this year there just wasn’t a lot to discuss when it came to the comic universes.. so we decided to have an episode where we create our own.
So we got Bill Ellis, manager of Wildpig and longtime friend of the show and Jay Sandlin, new friend of the show and writer of Outbreak Mutiny, as well as a regular contributor to Buzzfeed! I’m also leaving a link here to this article, but you might want to wait til the end of the episode to click on it… trust us.
Let me (Hatton here) take a quick moment to say a thank you to every one of you that has listened over the years and has gotten us here. It is because of you folks that we do it and thanks for being there. As we crest our fourth year and our next episode is that big ol’ triple digit, it is stereotypical, but totally true, that without you, there would be no us. So thanks everyone.
Enough prattling – let’s get on with the show.
Ok, here we go!
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!
♫ 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.
We the Somethings of this Cast, in Order to form a more perfect podcast, establish hilarity, insure timely updates, provide for the sarcastic defence, promote the general whatever, and secure the I’m Running Out Here to ourselves and our Posterior (..heh, butt), do ordain and establish this episode for the pleasure of our audience.
The boys are getting a little political this week – and by political – they mean they’re talking about fake people who held the office of President.
Presidents from film, television, the future, and the past are all up to debate in this congress of Hatton & Podcast Rob.
We do our best to not discuss anything related to real politics.. because seriously.. you need an hour break from that.
So sit back, relax, and hum Hail To The Chief… here we go.
PS – Please take a look at your feed. This week you are getting a bonus of the first episode of STORIES TOO AMAZE! More on that post.
The Somethings decided that since it is the scaaaarrriest of holidays, we would go and give you a treat and not a trick this year, by releasing tomorrow’s episode for you today. That way you can enjoy our spooooooky conversation while you are out haunting around.
So what is this episode about? Well – take your top four fictional characters that you want by your side during the zombie apocalypse. We take one from movies. One from television. One from book fiction. One wildcard. And then we decide who would survive.
Now, you have to figure that James and Podcast Rob are both going to think their team is the strongest, so they got themselves a judge to solve who’s team is the best of the best. None other than friend of the show, horror afficienado, from the Supernatural Department at Head Over Feels, Dawn!
So we know you are going to disagree with us… which means you should start a discussion below!
Ok, here we boo! (get it? ..because it’s… right.. you get it.. nevermind)
When Netflix calls – we move forward. Always forward.
You are correct, the boys are back with the newest installment in the Netflix Marvel Universe. We have seen what goes down in Hell’s Kitchen. We have had our Alias investigated. Now it is time to check out who runs Harlem.
As has become a SomethingCast tradition, we can’t take on a character like Cage without a little help, so we brought our favorite dulcet toned delight, Tim ‘Ungaije’ Stevens (Check out his Psyche Ward at Marvel!). Please settle in while we talk the history of the character, the concepts of the show, the connections with the Marvel U, and more.
How does Cage rank amongst the rest – now’s the time to find out with your Podcast For Hire.
Ok, here we go!
