ABC Podcast: Alex and Brandon Chat
On this week's episode, Alex and Brandon chat about trailers, trailers, and more trailers.
After apologizing once more for forgetting to plug their social media accounts at the end of the last episode, Alex starts the show off with something new, a Periscope of a mystery unboxing from his friend/tormentor, Josh Brown of the Toys for Games podcast, which goes so unbelievably badly, the audio version doesn't do it justice, so make sure to check it out by going to Alex's Twitter account, @AtariAlex. Once that debacle concludes, Alex picks the subject for this week's ABC's of Geekdom segment (major spoilers from 12:45- 19:04), and begins with corrections from last week's show, which include, My Teacher Fried My Brains, Star Wars, Transfomers, Spelling Jungle, Reader Rabbit, Garfield's Pet Force, Captain Underpants, Professor Poopypants, Justice League, The Hulk, Meloetta, Lilo and Stitch, Star Wars Celebration Europe, Star Trek, Pokémon, Shrek, Fear the Walking Dead, Kaiju, and the Botafumiero.
With all that out of the way, they move on to news from the past week, which mostly is made up of trailers from SDCC, including Wonder Woman, Justice League, Suicide Squad, LEGO Batman, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Kong: Skull Island, Doctor Strange, Legion, and series 4 of Sherlock. They also talk about the official announcement of Brie Larson and Captain Marvel, Kiersey Clemmons as Iris West in The Flash movie, Lennie James being cast for Blade Runner 2, some promo art for Spider-Man: Homecoming, as well as news about Star Trek Discovery, Pacific Rim 2, and a reboot of The Rocketeer. After all of that, Alex and Brandon have a discussion about good and bad series finales in tv shows and why they are so difficult, and end the show with an all new Fan Fic Fights, with our first ever returning fighter.
Last but not least, Alex stole Brandon's pick for which movie to watch and discuss next, and he chose Batman: Assault on Arkham, which will undoubtedly be a better movie that Suicide Squad. We will be talking all about that in 2 weeks, so make sure to watch it and let us know what you think by sending us an email.
