We’re back with our bonus episode for June, as the guys straight outta Brooklyn take a look at the First Family of Super-Heroics, The Fantastic Four! Join Tom and Derrick as they look at the cartoons, the films (including the legendary Roger Corman-produced fiasco from the 90’s), the obscure radio show and, of course, the present big budget film series. Plus, learn the real reason why The Human Torch was replaced by Herb-E in the 78 cartoon!
Once more with more enthusiasm than facts (although we’re getting better), Tom and Derrick spend an hour looking at George Romero’s Dead series. From Night of The Living Dead to Land of The Dead, we examine the entire canon, including the remakes. Plus, the guys from Brooklyn tackle the eternal question of ‘Canada–what gives?’ (Just a heads up: There is a drop in audio levels at around the twenty minute mark. We’re sorry about that, and are working to assure a higher quality presentation in the future.)
Once more with more enthusiasm than factual information–and with our ability to be foul mouthed restored–Tom and Derrick look at some genre movies that will be released through the middle of summer…. At least that’s what we’re supposed to do. In fact, we go off on a fistful of tangents. Join us as we give our feelings on the Don Imus situation, blast one film for its excessive violence before drooling over another due to its abundance of sexy young women, talk about how our DVD buying habits change, explain why Tom doesn’t want to see Pirates, tell stories about celebrities with funny voices, hear Derrick say ‘Yo, Dog,’ and go off on rants sure to piss off fans of Transformers. Plus Tom does imitations of Gilbert Gottfried and Keith Richards. Yeah, we know…but listen to it anyway…!
We begin our series on Marvel Comics Characters in other media by focusing on Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. Tom and Derrick examine how Spidey has been portrayed in cartoons, live-action television, and, of course, the big budget Sam Raimi movies, and speculates on what the future holds!
Our first theme episode, as we take a look at the premiere pulp adventure movie series, The Indiana Jones Trilogy! Join Derrick and Tom as they discuss with more enthusiasm than facts what made these films so great!
