Tagged , ,

thunder… Thunder… THUNDERCATS…

If, like me, your brain is now screaming ‘Hoooo!’ – you were likely of an era of a particular vintage of cartoons.  WYou are left with questions … is Cheetara naked?  Do Thundercats mate with their relatives or do they just ignore that cat thing?

And most important question of all…. If there was a Thundercats Movie, who should star in it?

So, this week on THE WHEEL, we are going to throw out our own ideas as to what the perfect Thundercats movie is – and we are not doing it alone.  Joining us once again are the greatest Kevins in all the land – Kevin Gootee & Kevin Israel – also known as Gutting The Sacred Cow, a brilliant podcast where you can hear some of your favorite things torn to shreds.  We would like to thank them for taking this trip to Thundera with us and giving us insight beyond insight.

[The Wheel] Recasting Hateful 8

Tagged , ,

IT’S STILL YEAR 8!

And now it’s time to spin the wheel.. the wheel full of odd and interesting ideas and weird episode ephemera we can’t seem to fit in any other week. So what happens when you take a movie – and recast it with the same actors… but from other roles? 

Well, I’m going to tell you what – you have today’s episode of the Wheel where we try and shove other characters into Hateful Eight. 

Why Hateful Eight? Because we have a theme we’re holding on to, and I’ll admit, this is the best we came up with. So, we go over the details of one of Quentin Tarantino’s most devisive movies and replay it, but with a bunch of weird choices.

Ready? Ok – here we go!

[The Wheel] The Quest Predictions (w/ The Paladins)

Tagged , , , ,

It should be no surprise that the Somethings love the 2014 reality game – The Quest. We were only given one season, but it has kept a rabid cult fanbase begging for it to be revisited. 

Over the years, we have had the honor to become friends with some of the Paladins, so with a new Quest series coming to Disney Plus, it only felt right to head back to Everealm again and make some predictions about what is to come.

We are thrilled to welcome back to the show, Paladins Jasmine, Jim, and Patrick – as we discuss what adventures they have gone on since their journey, and what they are looking forward to when it comes to what a new threat will have to be defeated by a new team of Paladins.  So, sharpen your swords and load up your scorpions – we’re sending messages to the Fates themselves as we talk about The Quest Season 2.

And if you are interested in what the Paladins have been up to – you can find them here:

[The Wheel] Elevator Pitch: Movie Franchise Amusement Park Ride

Tagged , , ,

Last week, we were honored to be a part of Livestream For The Cure and if you weren’t there, you missed out on a helluva party.

That said, we wanted you to see our hour of the party and hopefully you’ll get in on the fun next year.

Joined, and judged by Nick of the Epic Film Guys, the Somethings are on an elevator, and we only have a few brief (..or not so brief..) moments with Mr. Anthony Michael UsementPark to sell him on our great idea that merges an oft ignored movie franchise and give it the big park treatment.  Roadhouse Bumper Cars? Karate Kid: The Crane Kick Dropper? It could be anything – and before we get to our floor, one of us will get to live our ‘big ride’ dreams…

BUT FIRST! – If you are looking to donate to help us live in a world without cancer – click here for the current donation page.

What if it made you one of the most wanted men in the world?

Nobody knows who he is, nobody knows if he survived, nobody knows what happened to the money…. we’re of course talking about the Mystery of DB Cooper. So settle in, get you and the flight crew a martini, set your seats back and your tray up – It’s takeoff on The Wheel: DB COOPER
