ABC Podcast: Alex and Brandon Chat
On this week's episode, Alex and Armando chat about going on holiday.
Brandon is back in the throes of back to school craziness, so Alex managed to rope on a couple of suckers to take his place, namely Vincent and Armando. After some banter about work, apartments, and Pokémon GO, they finish off their second cycle of the ABC's of Geekdom by taking about a big yellow bird that doesn't live on Sesame Street. Then they move on the corrections segment, including the DC/Looney Tunes crossover comics, Loonatics Unleashed, Digimon, the six degrees of Kevin Bacon to Ron Howard, the definition of anime, Parks and Rec, Al's Toy Barn, James Bond 25, Holes, Darkwing Duck, DuckTales, SDCC exclusive Pop! vinyls, and commercials.
After the break with an extra special musical choice, they cover some trailers, including The Darkest Hour, Bright, The Tick, Star Trek Discovery, The Gifted, Krypton, and the new Rocko's Modern Life TV movie. Then they cover a little bit of news, including the casting of Raven in the new live action Teen Titans show, the passing of Robert Hardy, the announcement of Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters coming to Netflix, Millarworld being purchased by Netflix, an update on the Shazam movie, Ian McShane cast in the Hellboy reboot, and John Cena cast in the upcoming Bumblebee spinoff movie. After that, they move on to this week's Hot Takes, including War for the Planet of the Apes and Thomas and the Magic Railroad (and no Game of Thrones. Sorry!). With all of that covered, they move on to this week's feature topic, and since summer is rapidly coming to an end, they decide to take about the best vacations in movies and tv shows and why real life vacations pale in comparison. Then they wrap things up with an all new Fan Fic Fights that is positively shocking.
Last but not least, Alex makes an announcement about the future of the podcast; long story short, he and Brandon will be taking a bit of a hiatus while Alex moves up north and gets settled in to law school.
