Danny Rand… we’ve said quite a lot of things about Danny Rand’s Bland Fight To Unhand The Hand. Well now it is time to discuss the last time we’ll have to deal with this, the most underwhelming of the Marvel shows.

Did it pick up from Season 1? Has Danny become a better character? What about a better person? …a better fighter? A better *anything*?!

Well settle in as we discuss some of the last of the Netflix Marvel U – it’s The End: Iron Fist

Avengers: Endgame

Much like Thanos, this review was inevitable.

First, this is a spoiler laden episode. From the Hulk turning purple to Captain America’s cousin Oliver coming in to save the whole of the universe – we pull no punches on the talk, so if you haven’t gotten to Endgame yet, sit this one out for now.

Beyond that, we’re doing what we do – and that’s jabber on endlessly about a movie that will change the way we think about movies – only insomuch as we have never ever seen something that took 20+ movies to make and 15 years to see to fruition. Love it or hate it – it is hard to not be impressed.

So join the Somethings for Episode 135 where we discuss at length Endgame – aka – Ant-Man’s Fantastic Voyage.

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.)

A quick bit of upkeep – you may have noticed that episodes no longer have an ‘Episode #’ – well that’s because Apple has been asking people to put the kibosh on that, lest you lose any sort of ranking you may have had.

So now you can find the episode number in the text, right here: Episode 133 – If I find out that this is wrong, they’ll come back.

So now to the meat and potatoes of every single part of the world of movies, summer blockbusters, comics, and all of your nerdy friends. ENDGAME!

The Somethings settle in and start talking about what has happened – what is coming – and if we could have our way, what we would want to come next….

So settle in kids, it’s time to completely be wrong about a 3 hour movie.

Episode 129 – Stan Lee

Tagged , , , ,

A couple of weeks ago, the world lost a legend in not just comics, but in entertainment. So much of our entertainment world in the last twenty years has been painted with the colors that Stan Lee helped create that it is impossible to think of a world that never had him.

So join the Somethings as we pay tribute to a man who didn’t just get us to Make Mine Marvel, but gave us our No Prize and made us all True Believers.

Thank you Stan – James & Rob

First off. SPOILERS

I mean, there won’t be any in this paragraph, but in this episode – we barely get 3 minutes in before we’re all ‘Thanos killed Dumbledore’ and ‘Captain America was Bruce Willis the whole time’.  It’s like we have done our best to keep our silence to wait for this very episode!

And better than bursting with excitement, just the two of us, we brought along some friends!

We have Kristel (Twitter: @yeagerkristel) and Nicole (Twitter: @nicole4783) from Two Girls, One Mic, which you can find on the Geeks World Wide Podcast Network (thegww.com) and they hang with us and talk about our favorite moments, the moments that fell short, and nerd out over the decade it took for us to get here.

Probably a bad question in Hells Kitchen, eh?
