ABC Podcast: Alex and Brandon Chat
On this week's episode, Alex and Brandon chat about the wrath of Cons.
Alex is back from his honeymoon with plenty of stories and new enthusiasm for the podcast. After reading tales about what's been going on and Alex's thoughts on the podcast without him, Brandon chooses this week's subject subject for the ABC's of Geekdom segment, this time focusing on a rootin' tootin' sharpshootin' cowboy. After that, they cover a ton of corrections across three different episodes, including Groundskeeper Willie's doctorate, Hades' Japanese voice actor, the demonym for New Zealand, six degrees of separation, Vince Vaughn, underwater sonic booms, Jim Sturgess, La La Land, best indie movies, Attack on Titan, Dexter's Lab, Madam Web, Aurelio, Albert Wesker, Alex's most seen movie, Locklyn Munro, Wet Hot American Summer, Rent, the Red Wedding, Gilmore Girls, Fairly Odd Parents, Spongebob, Lilo and Stitch, Kim Possible, the Walking Dead and the Pokémon GO Fest.
After the break, the boys discuss a bunch of trailers, mostly from SDCC and D23 Expo, including Ready Player One, Bladerunner 2049, Kingsman: the Golden Circle, Pacific Rim: Uprising, It, Wrinkle in Time, Inhumans, the Starfire DLC for Injustice 2, Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite, and Kingdom Hearts III. Then they talk about news, including the casting announcements for New Warriors, a trilogy reboot of the Terminator franchise, Daniel Craig returning for the 25th James Bond movie, details about the Captain Marvel movie, casting announcements for Ant-Man and the Wasp, Tom Welling cast in season 3 of Lucifer, the title of the new Flash movie, the passing of John Heard, George Romero, and June Foray, a new character in the DuckTales reboot, details about a planned Doctor Doom movie, more details on the Shazam movie, the announcement of the next Doctor on Doctor Who, Lucy Liu directing the season premiere of Luke Cage, Erica Durance joining the cast of Supergirl, and a breakdown of all the SDCC Pop!s this year. With all of that covered, they're still not done as they truck on with their feature topic, this week talking about what makes commercials good and bad, and reminiscing about some of their favorite commercials. After that, they go over some Hot Takes, including A Cure for Wellness, Good Burger, Seinfeld, Glow, and the episode Stormborn on Game of Thrones. Finally, they end the show with an all-new Fan Fic Fights, this time pitting two shield-wielding warriors against each other.
