ABC Podcast: Alex and Brandon Chat
On this week's episode, Alex and Brandon chat about preteen awkwardness. Brandon's schedule finally freed up enough to make some time to return to the show, and his salt levels have reached new highs. The boys kick off their reunion with a few unboxings, most importantly the August 2016 Marvel Collector Corps subscription box, this time themed after Spider-Man. Alex decides to try Periscoping the event once more, so head over to his Twitter account, @AtariAlex, to check out the video version. After that Brandon starts a great discussion with his pick for the letter K in this week's ABC's of Geekdom segment, Kylo Ren. After that, Alex gets started with corrections from last week's show, including Star Wars, Pokémon, Paper Mario, Sesame Street, Human Target, and Avatar.
After the break, they talk about the news from the past week, including new trailers for Rings and The Return of the Caped Crusaders, Michael Pena returning for Ant-Man and The Wasp, Zendaya being cast as Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man: Homecoming, the debut of the Super Saiyan Rosé form, Riri Williams' superhero name reveal, the Black Flash, Legion's tie in to the X-Men media franchise, Justice League Dark, The Rival coming to The Flash, Savitar possibly not coming to The Flash, a new tv show based on The Departed, some casting announcements for Gotham, and rumors about a new James and the Giant Peach movie. After all of that, Alex talks about some of the things he's been up to lately, namely, watching Firefly and playing Bioshock. With all of that covered, the boy's return to the second part of their personal histories of what made them the nerds they are today. This week, they cover their middle school years and things get awkward.
Last but certainly not least, Brandon has decreed that we will all watch Avengers: Age of Ultron and discuss every excruciating detail on the podcast, The merits of this movie have been a point of contention among our two hosts for several years, so you should watch the movie and send in your thoughts to make your opinion heard!
