ABC Podcast: Alex and Brandon Chat
On this week's episode, Alex and Brandon chat about a really useful engine we adore.
Alex and Brandon have returned once more to bring you the latest in news to distract you from the horrible 2016 presidential election. After talking about camping, good vibes, and an utter lack of sleep, Brandon discusses his pick for the ABC's of Geekdom segment, dragging Alex back to Middle Earth. After successfully throwing that segment into the fires of Mount Doom, Alex begins with the corrections from the previous week, including Mucha Lucha, King of the Hill, The Simpsons, Garfield, Iron Fist, Pokémon, Mulan, Harry Potter, The Guardian, and Futurama. Since there were so few corrections this week, much to Brandon's delight, they cover some news before the break as well, including Tim miller no longer directing the Deadpool sequel, Donald Glover cast as young Lando Calrissian, Letitia Wright being cast in the Black Panther movie, the potential of the Illuminati coming to the MCU, a new Willy Wonka movie, a Candy Crush game show on CBS, Leonardo DiCaprio producing the Captain Planet movie, a Justice League Power Rangers crossover comic, a sequel to Sky High, and the Walking Dead confirmed for an eight season.
After a break and some fittingly spooky music, the boys cover some trailers, including the Guardians of the Galaxy teaser, the Logan trailer, the Assassin's Creed trailer, the Nintendo Switch reveal, and the Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer. With all of that covered, the boys then turn their attention to Snowpiercer (spoilers from around 1:26:15-2:09:20). Alex had heard lots of praise for this movie and knew almost nothing about it going in, but did it live up to the hype? The only way to find out is to listen, or better yet, watch the movie for yourself. Before ending the show, Alex and Brandon lock heads once more in a new Fan Fic Fights segment. This week, the world's two foremost vampire hunters duke it out, but only once can be victorious.
