ABC Podcast: Alex and Brandon Chat
On this week's episode, Alex and Brandon chat in the fires of Mount Doom.
Your intrepid podcast duo has returned once more, but are joined by a Fellowship of two lovely ladies; Kenzie makes her glorious return to offer some in-depth knowledge on J. R. R. Tolkien, and Robyn tags along just because. After a brief recap of their relatively quiet weeks, Alex makes his pick for the ABC's of Geekdom segment, this week deciding on one very hyperactive stuffed animal. After a short but sweet discussion on that, they move right into the corrections segment, including Caity Lotz, the Forbes Fictional 15 list, firedrakes, Trogdor the Burninator, the Berenstain Bears, Andrew Clements, James Wolk, Facepunch Studios, Sprint vs. Verizon, Jennifer Connelly, Ghost in the Shell, Chris Evans, Gilmore Girls, Injustice 2, Ronald McDonald, the Simpsons, the Nibblonains, Falling Skies, and Star Wars. Then, since it's such a light news week, they jump straight into reporting on the Bumblebee spinoff movie being set in the 80's, character appearance confirmations for Justice League and Infinity War, and plans for a new Spider-Man trilogy.
After the break, the gang breaks down a few trailers, including Rough Night, Flatliners, and Olaf's Frozen Adventure. With all of that out of the way, they have an in-depth discussion of The Lord of the Rings: the Fellowship of the Ring (spoilers from around 1:19:24-2:17:28). Brandon and Kenzie have been waiting for this day for a long time, so humor them and listen to them nerd out for a bit. Then, out of order, they give a few hot takes, including Spartacus, House of Cards, Million Dollar Baby, London has Fallen, Thor: the Dark World, Orange is the New Black, and Wonder Woman. Finally, they finish the show with an all-new Fan Fic Fights, this time engaging in a magical duel of epic proportions.
