ABC Podcast: Alex and Brandon Chat
On this week's episode, Alex and Brandon chat about seeking out new life and new civilizations.
Alex and Brandon are all alone this week, but they still have one heck of a show cooked up. After discussing their miserable lives over the past week, they try to pick up the mood with Brandon's pick for the ABC's of Geekdom segment, this week focusing on the Scrooge McDuck of dragons. Then Alex goes over some corrections, including the Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, Bill Trinen, the Smash Bros. Invitational Tournament, Reggie Fils-Aime, the Berenstain Bears, Dragonball Z, Dolph Lundgren, Batman voice actors, Logan Lucky, LEGO games, the Witcher, Mission: Impossible, The Good Guys, Bradley Whitford, Thomas Middleditch, and the Oscars.
After the break, the boys discuss some trailers including Black Panther, Baby Driver, It Comes At Night, American Made, the recent Pokémon Direct, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, and the first commercial for the Super Nintendo World theme park. Then they keep on truckin' and go over some news, including the deaths of Adam West and Peter Sallis, Zhang Ziyi cast in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Hannah John-Kamren cast in Ant-Man and the Wasp, Jennifer Connelly cast in the Snowpiercer tv series, a live action Cowboy Bebop tv show, Phantom of the Opera and the Hunchback of Notre Dame coming to Universal's Dark Universe, a Breaking Bad virtual reality game, a Broadway Spongebob musical coming this year, Chris Evans returning for the 4th Avengers movie, James Gunn continuing to help with the MCU, and a possible delay for the final season of Game of Thrones. After that, they give some Hot Takes, including Gilmore Girls, Nightcrawler, Injustice 2, the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary documentary, and Game of Thrones. Then they move on to their feature topic with a new top 5 that will transport you thousands of light years away. Last but not least, they close out the show with an all-new Fan Fic Fights between masters of the elements.
