    Episode 158: Scary Cartoons

    After I take a moment to tell off other podcasters for being a bunch of thankless douches, Ben and I sink our teeth into some scary cartoons. It’s not our most organized show. We basically ramble on about a whole … Continue reading →

Quit hating on everything

These guys don't like anything. Especially Ben. Shows that I grew up with like Fox's Spiderman and X-Men are great and ReBoot are great. He just hates on them for stupid reasons, like animation styles. That's what they had to work with back then. Unfortunately, I'm going to keep listening to see if there is something that these guys actually do like.

Horrible facts

Reviewed one of my favorite anime and I could tell only one of them knew anything about. Everything they say is just facts you can find on Wikipedia. They are over critical and boring. If you want to listen to a bunch of people talk about how much they hate everything, then go ahead. As for me I'm going to not waste my time.

Wish they would do more...

I love this show! Listened to every ep. Ben interrupts everybody and makes inside jokes that only Neil gets too often, but that's my only complaint. Otherwise, this show is done by people that love animation for an audience that loves animation. Moar plz!
