ABC Podcast: Alex and Brandon Chat
On this week's episode, Alex and Catherine chat about test tube babies.
Brandon took a rare vacation this week, so Alex was forced to find a replacement in his stead. Fortunately, his sister, Catherine, was in town and picked up the slack. After discussing the weather, moving, and birthdays, Catherine chooses this week's subject for the ABC's of Geekdom segment, and chooses a prisoner you don't want to mess with. After that, they move on to the corrections segment, including Legion of Collectors, Game of Thrones, Lou Ferrigno, Sub Zero, Christopher Sabat, Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, Cuphead, Kingdom Hearts III, Clonetroopers, Detroit: Become Human, Kirby, Metroid, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and the Nemesis. Then, since it's still early in the show, they cover a bit of news, including some Dark Phoenix movie announcements, Julian Dennison cast in Deadpool 2, Michael Beach cast in Aquaman, a title and release date for the Jurassic World sequel, and Ron Howard replacing Chris Miller and Phil Lord as the director of the Han Solo movie.
After the break, they give their thoughts on some trailers, including Atomic Blonde, The Foreigner, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Pitch Perfect 3, A Bad Moms Christmas, Death Note, Inhumans, Forces of Destiny, Netflix interactive shows, and the LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game. Then they hop back to the news, including a reboot of the Saw franchise, Carnage confirmed for the Venom movie, a new Watchmen series coming to HBO, a reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise, enemies confirmed for Godzilla: King of the Monsters, future release dates for Fox Marvel movies, the passing of Michael Nyqvist, and Jake Busey's role in The Predator. After that, they give some Hot Takes, including You Get Me, Schindler's List, Sense8, Flaked, the Arrowverse crossover, Orange is the New Black, Moana, 30 Rock, and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Then, because Catherine is a baby, they skip a feature topic this week and go straight into the Fan Fic Fight, this time waging war between two masters of the sea.
