And we’re back. Welcome to the Lightning Round. Don’t try to figure anything out. It’s not so much a rant as it is a broken train of thought. Or maybe you just can’t see the tracks. Treat all the paragraphs and separate thoughts and don’t wonder what my problem is. I have no idea.
The last of our preview episodes before we decided it wasn’t fun for us, including advice on Child Rearing, praise for Tim Burton and Vincent Price, and more Kristen Bell slobbering in the case of Tom.
It’s time to kick the Better In The Dark Halloween festivities off in earnest, and what better way to do that than to release an episode focusing in Marvel Comics’ bad-ass Vampire hunter, Blade! From his origins as a supporting character in one of the scariest comics of the 70’s to his total redesign as a signature role for Wesley Snipes, Tom and Derrick tackle it all! Of course, it wouldn’t be an episode without digressions and divergences, so we also explore the phallic nature of Spike TV’s name and try to answer the eternal question of “Jessica Biel: What gives?” It’s a fangful of fun, so get to downloading!
Just in time for DVD Set Season, The Boys Outta Brooklyn go from the big screen to the boob tube to examine some of the finest examples of serialized genre television. From Twin Peaks to Crime Story to The X-Files to Lost and Heroes, Tom and Derrick talk frankly about all the major touchstones that led to the new television paradigm. Plus Tom goes off on a blistering tear about the ‘originality’ of Heroes, the guys enact their favorite moment from The Last Dragon, and tales about psychotic hate mail!
