“Yeah, I Can Talk To Fish. So What? How Often Do You Need To Be Saved By A School Of Salmon?” – The Deep
*Spoiler Alert!* Erik and Chris are joined by ‘the boys’, Jimmy and BJ, to talk about “The Boys”Seasons 1-3 (now on Amazon Prime), their favorite moments / characters, how it compares to the Garth Ennis comics from Dynamite, and what they hope to see going forward…
“Storytelling is always king, that’s all that matters to us.” – James Gunn
In light of the recent news that James Gunn(director of “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “The Suicide Squad”) and Peter Safran are officially “rebooting” the *entire* DC film franchise (following “The Flash” and “Aquaman: The Lost Kingdom”), we decided to break down what each of us would do if we were (somehow) put in charge of the DC Studios reboot! Strap in for two of the craziest, nerdiest, mega-fan pitch meetings of all time as Chris and Erik attempt to construct an entire inter-connected cinematic universe!
“Walk down the right back alley in Sin City, and you can find anything.” – Marv
Erik rides solo for a deep dive into the corrupt, blood soaked, streets of Basin City with a review of Frank Miller’s “Sin City” graphic novels, and how they compare / contrast to the Robert Rodriguez movie adaptation, and it’s sequel, “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For”…

Erik and Chris got together to see the latest DC movie, “Black Adam”, and decided to record a quick impromptu episode on their initial thoughts of the film, where they think the DCEU could be heading next, how the movie compares to the JSA / Black Adam comics, Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, how Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson fills in the iconic role of Teth-Adam himself, and of course that reveal in the post-credits scene… (Spoilers Ahead!)

“It’s an incredibly bad look to cancel a Latina Batgirl movie.” – Kevin Smith
Erik and Chris return to discuss the latest geek news – with ALL of Kevin Feige’s Marvel Phase 5 *and* 6 announcements from this year’s San Diego Comic Con 2022! Meanwhile, the new head of Warner Bros decided to cancel not only the (nearly completed) “Batgirl” movie, starring Leslie Grace (and Michael Keaton!), but several other DC projects from the CW and HBO Max (including Kevin Smith’s work on “Strange Adventures” an animated anthology which honestly sounded cool as hell) all in an apparent attempt to save $3 billion with a tax loophole, but the move has since apparently backfired causing them to lose $20 billion after pissing off the entire internet, because of course it did. So you know, the usual.
Note: In this episode we accidentally referred to Ezra Miller as ‘he’ instead of ‘they’, but mean no disrespect the trans community, just an honest slip up.
