Hey apparently people think we’re neat.

We were recently contacted by a couple cool cats from the upcoming webseries You Again – and we got not just a sneak peek of their show, but a chance to talk with them about the process.

Meet Audra – lil bit crazy, and Zander – lil bit nerdy.  They’re about to move in together because .. well.. because Audra.

Be sure to check out Their Website right here, and their Youtube Page to learn all about the behind the scenes and see the first episode coming July 6th.

Episode 68 – Post-Apocalyptic TV

Tagged , , , ,

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.

Tagged , , , , ,

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!

Episode 65 – The Quest Reunion

The day has arrived.

The Somethings have arrived on the last Turnpike Exit before Everrealm!

Join a whole slew of The Quest Paladins, Performers, and Creative all thrilled to hear each other’s voice again – and let us eavesdrop and get in a few words along the way.

We want to once again thank everyone who helped make this episode happen, and as you will hear from the beginning of the episode, we did have some technical difficulties that we assume has a lot to do with the strain on Skype and a transcontinental internet connection.

Thanks everyone – Okay, here we go!

Episode 64 – House of Cards

On this episode – The Somethings Go To Washington

We’ve been pretty big on House of Cards since Season 1, and now as the show ends its 4th Season we decided to discuss where and what has gone on, what we love, and what we hate… the fact is we don’t hate that much.

Frank Underwood – the government official we love to hate and love to see how he schemes through another moment is the central focus of this episode.

He may have his finger on the big red button – but does he hijack your brain?

I don’t think so.

(Note: This episode is SPOILERRIFIC)

Episode 59 – Doctor Who / Sherlock Christmas Specials

Tagged , , ,

Happy Something Year!

We’re back with our first show of 2016, and the boys are bringing a couple fantastic guests to sit and talk about the wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey holiday spirit on Baker Street… that’s right, we’re talking some BBC’ness big numbers shows of Doctor Who and Sherlock – but specifically this year’s big Christmas / New Years episodes.

Along the way we found two wonderful women floating about in the aether of the internet who know a thing or two about a thing or two.  Meredith Placko (@mplacko), writer at GEEK.COM, and PopCornTalk’s Marvel Movie News.  And sitting in studio (Not our studio.. but *A* studio) with Meredith is Emma Fyffe (@emmafyffe). You might know Emma from PopcornTalkAfterBuzzTV, and her Sailor Moon Podcast, Love & Justice. Find all her goings on at her Tumblr.

Ok – see, and this is why we don’t have guests with pedigrees.. do you know how long it took me to get all that linkage in.  That’s it. No more really awesome guests. It’s like this is becoming work….

But back to the episode – WHAT DID THE BOYS THINK? WHAT DID THE GIRLS THINK? WHAT DID YOU THINK?

Episode 58 – Jessica Jones

Tagged , , , , ,

Put on your biggest smile, and join us once again as the Somethings delve into binge watching Netflix’s newest Marvel: Jessica Jones.  What started as a noir take on the superhero world has taken television by storm as a story of the seedier, darker, and downright creepier parts of what great power means when you have little responsibility.

Joining us is honorary Something, friend, and comic book genius – @Ungajje himself: Tim Stevens.

Couple things to note – this show is long. We love talking with Tim, so even when we say ‘lets wrap it up.. there’s another 2 hours.’  Also, this show is SPOILERIFFIC.  If you are 3 episodes in.. don’t listen.  Go watch them. Then listen.

SWEET CHRISTMAS, Here we go!

Episode 54 – SomethingRiffs: Lost

Tagged , ,

In what is going to go down as their ‘Awkward Year 3 Experimental Phase’ – The Somethings are returning back to a place they vowed they would never return to.

That’s right… The Island.

Now, you might remember the last 6 Hour Rant Fest that was the Something’s Lost episode… well this time it is a bit different. The boys are sitting down with the finale of LOST and riffing on it.  So this episode isn’t one you can just sit back and let us hijack your brain – you are going to want to load up Netflix and watch the show along with us as we sit and discuss, mock, point out, ignore, and generally vent our frustrations one last time at those damned Dharma kids and their mangey Smoke Monster.

This episode is yet another in a long line of interesting things we’re trying out, and your commentary on how it went is supremely important, so please hang out with us on social media (and here!) and let us know what you think.

After this, we’re taking our favorite rant vehicle and locking it away in the hatch… so savour it, we ain’t goin’ back for a lonnnnnng time, Freckles.

Episode 52 – The Library Bards!

Tagged , , ,

Welcome back Somethings.. or perhaps you are new to this whole thing.  Thanks for showing up.

What originally started out as a show about reality shows has spiraled into SomethingMadness by gettingthe fantastic opportunity to spend some time with The Library Bards!

Who are they intrepid Something Listeners?  Well they are the nerdy singing duo of Bonnie Gordon and Xander Jeanneret!  How do they relate to reality shows?  Well Xander was on Season 2 of the TBS show King of the Nerds and Bonnie was on the first season of The Quest.  Do you see how this went?  No? Not yet? Fine. We explain it better during the show.

We want to thank the Bards for taking time out of their convention schedule to hang online with us and we look forward to everything they do next.

For more on them, you can find them on: YOUTUBE!, TWITTER!, FACEBOOK!, and of course ITUNES!

Ok – here we go!
