The Superhero Pantheon – Spider-Man ’94: Episodes 20-22

‘Enter the Punisher’, ‘Duel of the Hunters’ & Blade, the Vampire Hunter’

Jerome and Brian discuss more adventures in the Neogenic Nightmare season of Spider-man.

This week, Spider-Man becomes a Man-Spider as we get more horror imagery. We also get appearances from a more techy version of Punisher and a less cool version of Blade. No one ice skating uphill sadly.

Ben & Matt’s Marvellous Journey – Episode 33: Hawkeye

Ben & Matt continue their Marvel-lous (and never-ending) Journey through the history of the MCU.

The last of Marvel’s forays into television in 2021 of course means a discussion of Bumblebee, the Jeremy Renner App, Hawaiian Shirt Blastoise and a dog solving a murder.

Marvel Mondays – Moon Knight: Season Review

Moon Knight exists. Save yourself 4 hours and just read the most recent comic book runs. They’re relatively short, mostly self-contained and are orders of magnitude more interesting than this complete and utter failure of the character.

Ranking the Frasier Seasons

Frasier kind of feels oddly forgotten and overlooked as one of the great sitcoms of the last forty years? Maybe my perception is skewed a bit, but it just seems the show does not get discussed or referenced as much as it should in comparison to some other huge hits from that time period. Whatever. Anyway, here is how I rank the seasons. Continue reading Ranking the Frasier Seasons

Jerome and Kevin Present – Cancelled Too Soon: Clerks: The Animated Series

This month, Jerome and Kevin talk about a beloved animated series that came around at the wrong time. The trials and tribulations of the show making it to air and certain behind the scenes decisions are what make its history so fascinating.

Before getting into those details, the hosts discuss their introduction and fandom of Kevin Smith, where that fandom stands today, and the live-action Clerks television pilot. They then discuss all six episodes, their favorite and least favorite moments, the wild array of guest voices, and where they believe it stands in Smith’s overall oeuvre.

The Superhero Pantheon – Spider-Man ’94: Episodes 17-19

‘The Mutant Agenda’, ‘Mutants’ Revenge’ & ‘Morbius’

Jerome and Brian continue their look at the second season of Spider-Man and examine a huge crossover in the world of Marvel animation as the X-Men (most prominently Wolverine and Beast) are featured.

Morbius also makes an appearance, but it’s not great. Enjoy the discussion about obscure horror and what makes this season so much better.

Ranking the Hollywood Oral History Books

THIS WILL BE AN ONGOING PROJECT THAT WILL BE SPORADICALLY UPDATED AS NEEDED

Hollywood oral history books are getting cranked out fairly quickly right now relatively speaking. I like reading them because they are mostly easy to read and fascinating regardless of how good they are.

Future Updates: Twin Peaks, Top of the Rock
