We’re back from the wasteland to give our 2 cents about Mad Max: Fury Road (warning: spoilers ahead), which pretty much dominates the front half of the podcast this week (along with the news that The Witcher 3 supports real-time beard growth.)
Bill’s zooming at ya with the hot scoop on Avengers 2: How Old is Ultron, Star Wars Card Trader and The Green Mile vs. Shawshank Redemption, while Anne is prepared to use her psychic powers to implant her opinions about biking, Touch of Evil and Broken Age Act 2 into your puny mortal minds.
Anne’s back after last week’s Star Wars special to talk about Linework NW, the Vikings season finale and the Mad Max movies, while Bill glarfs about the latest Mario Kart 8 DLC and catching up on Steven Universe (the first 15 episodes of which just happen to be $10 on iTunes, Amazon and pretty much everywhere else online).
Aside from the new trailer, we go over all the big Celebration news (the Rogue One trailer, Battlefront and Kathleen Kennedy’s commitment to keep expanding the SW universe to include more women), and everything else that’s happened since we last had a Star Wars spoilercast back in December (the Star Wars: Rebels season finale, all the new Marvel comics and more).
And for listeners who would like to watch along with Jimmy & Conley’s Star Wars watch-a-thon this fall, check out this Google calendar (jump to August first).
Intro: Star Wars (Main Title/The Blockade Runner) – Johnny Williams
Outro: The Empire Strikes Back (The Rebel Fleet/End Credits) – (see above)
We probably spend WAY more time talking about the new cowboy romance movie The Longest Ride this week than any of us anticipated, but we offset that with talk about Bloodborne, the Mad Max and Godfather movies and feeling bad about feeling good about boobs.
Anne and Foley have watched most of Steven Universe, so we have a lengthy talk about that while trying as best we can to not spoil anyone about the show, and then Bill dishes about Fast & the Furious 7, Axiom Verge and Mario 64 before we finally fusion-gem together to yap about The Writer Will Do Something and Attack the Light.
