    Ep 164: Sword Art Online Original Vs Abridged (Full Spoilers)

    Ep 164: Sword Art Online Original Vs Abridged (Full Spoilers)

    Many times on Podcapers, Mark Russell has educated Scott on various well known anime. Well now the turntables......Scott's doing the same to Mark, is what we're getting at. Specifically about Sword Art Online Abridged, a stand out in the Abridged Anime selection as some consider it better than the original. Will Scott convince Mark so? Probably, as Mark doesn't really like the original SAO.

    Ep 163: Mulan (2020) Review (Full Spoilers)

    Ep 163: Mulan (2020) Review (Full Spoilers)

    Wow. It's amazing. Disney has reached a brand new low. We didn't think it was possible, but they did it. We'd be impressed if we weren't so utterly disappointed. Scott and Mark Russell hop on the carousel of crappy live action Disney remakes one more time to review the new Mulan movie. But this is not a fun carousel. It's got rusty gears and splintery wooden horses. Bad times ahead, Capers!

    Well it's about goddamn time! The long awaited finale to the X-Men franchise is here at last. Going up against that new Christopher Nolan movie. Hmm. I don't like it's chances. Still, it's up to Scott and Mark Russell to decide whether it was worth the wait! The answer: eh, kinda?

    Ep 161: In Memory of Chadwick Boseman with Archit Tripathi and Lindiwe Ngwevela

    Ep 161: In Memory of Chadwick Boseman with Archit Tripathi and Lindiwe Ngwevela

    In honour of a man who literally inspired millions, Scott, Archit, and Lindiwe talk about Chadwick Boseman's tragic passing, the BLM protests in Kenosha, and how far Black superheroes have come in film.
    Recent events have left us all incredibly saddened, but it's important to remember to never give up hope, to never stop fighting for equality, and to always remember:
    "In times of crisis, the wise build bridges while the foolish build barriers."
