ABC Podcast: Alex and Brandon Chat
On this week’s episode, Alex and Brandon’s chat costs them everything.
Only 7 months after it was recorded, Episode 68 is finally here! After catching up on life and talking about some important news, the boys skip the ABC’s of Geekdom segment and get straight into the corrections, including Zapdos’s Ability, Brandon’s Pokémon GO Team, Pokémon movies, Articuno, The Crying of Lot 49, The Boondocks, Greek mythology, Isaiah Amir Mustafa, Hannibal, Bright, Sonequa Martin, Rocko’s Modern Life, Hellboy, Bumblebee, Peter Fonda, Home Alone, Tony Toons, Scooby Doo, A Goofy Movie, Killer Instinct, The Mist, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Deadman Wonderland, Whiplash, The Punisher and Punisher: War Zone, Marvel’s Netflix shows, The Big Sick, Fences, the Blood and Ice Cream trilogy, Luke Evans, and Doctor Fate. Then they run down their pop culture wishlist from 2017 to see if anyone’s wishes came true.
After the break, they give their thoughts on a very controversial news item that had lots of people up in arms. Then they break down a handful of trailers, Nintendo's E3 presentation and deliver some piping Hot Takes on a whole bunch of movies and shows, including the very divisive blockbuster Solo: a Star Wars Story (spoilers from 2:44:51-2:51:50). With all of that taken care of, the boys get into this week’s feature topic and geek out about Avengers: Infinity War (spoilers from 2:55:26-3:41:15). After a very long, very in depth conversation about Marvel’s greatest cinematic achievement, they close out the show with an all-new Fan Fic Fights between two stone-cold witches.
