♫ 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!
It’s time for the boys to head umop apisdn.
In another in a long string of shows that everyobody must binge watch lest they feel the wrath of the nerdy portions of the internet, Hatton and Rob are no different and have succumbed to the newest and hottest streaming thing, Stranger Things.
So join them as they find themselves stepping sideways through the rift between this world and another, bringing along a mysterious new friend who might or might not have otherworldly powers…
Reminisce about all those things that the show reminded them of and join in the conversation here or on all of our social media. Then, stick around for some important stuff at the end of the episode about the future of the Somethings and where else you might find them these days.
Ok, here we stay or here we go, now…
PS – Lookin for vinyl – Ask Hatton.
PS^2 – Looking for a neat shirt – Ask Rob.
The time is a day after tomorrow… the place… Somethingville.
Was it the bombs that dropped? Or the plague that killed all the men? Perhaps it was the Zeds?
We don’t know – all we know is it makes for some interesting television. The Somethings and special guest Alexis Torres from AfterBuzzTV and Black Hollywood Live delve into a small niche realm of shows that all seem to start right after the big whatever hits.

The Somethings have found their way back in the alleys of Hells Kitchen, and who did we find there?
Of course, we found our favorite comic genius, none other than the arid-witted Tim Stevens!
So now that the dust has settled, the guns have been stashed, and the sais are buried – we are taking on Daredevil Season 2 and a whole shitton of ninjas. So walk with us Hand in Hand in this Foggy weather to our Castle, and be prepared to be Elektrafied by this Frank discussion! (…ok, i’ll stop… …karen page…)
Ok, here we go!
