Every week we bring you the latest news in Movies, Television Shows and Comic Books. It's friends getting together and talking about what they love or hate in the genre. We aren't experts, we're not critics, we're not writers but we are FANS! We're called The Leftovers for a reason. We're like Danny DeVito in Twins. All the talent and originality went into the other podcasts. All the crap that was left over...went into what you listen to on this show. We talk about the latest movies in MARVEL like Avengers: Endgame, DC and STAR WARS. But we also cover other blockbusters and don't shy away from indie films as well. We breakdown and discuss new trailers for upcoming movies. And we got you covered in television with shows like Black Mirror, Perpetual Grace LTD, Wayne, Cobra Kai, Stranger Things, The Mandalorian, Fleabag, Westworld, Dead To Me, The Walking Dead and more. We love to review the first episodes of most shows and let you know if it's worth your time. So strap yourself in and have a good time! Strap yourself in? Really? Just listen. No straps required. Unless you're into that sort of thing.

ALSO, in our talk of The Mandalorian I get confused about remembering a bomb going off in Jango’s helmet during The Clone Wars. I later Google’d and came across this on Wookieepedia:
With Jango’s death, his armor passed to Boba. During the Clone Wars, Boba tried to kill Windu with a bomb that he planted inside his father’shelmet. Although the explosive was triggered by Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, Windu not only survived but also saved Skywalker in the process. While trapped under the wreckage of the Endurance, Windu inspected the damaged helmet of the hunter that he defeated on Geonosis, having realized that Boba was involved in the plot against him.
Customer ReviewsSee All
More fun than a squirrel in a barrel of pickles
This podcast is a great time. The hosts are fantastic, the content has effort and time spent for the reviews and news, and the banter is throughly enjoyable. However, it is not for everyone. It is a long podcast with no time stamps, and there is enough explicit language to turn a nun red faster than that time she opened the confessional door without knocking. So if your attention span is as long as it takes to stroke one out and your out, or you spend all day clutching your pearls, this is not your thing. Everyone else should give it a go as it is an ejoyable few hours.
Also Brian, since it is fresh on my mind after just listening to the review on Insert Coin. If you have not heard of them, check out arcade1up. They just released a 3/4th scale NBA JAM cabinet a little bit ago that might toot your horn.
I’ve been listening for a couple of years and it has become a favorite Sunday routine to start with the podcast in the shower and listen for the next six days in the shower. I love the long show format, the fact that it doesn’t take itself seriously, and the hosts feel like the misfit friends I had in h.s. or my ex-husband and his comic book friends. I missed feeling connected to nerd world with them but thanks to Jake and Brian- I have that again! I often find myself talking to my phone while you talk. Examples, when Brian said he wasn’t familiar with the Kajilionaire director, I was shouting “you have to watch ‘Me, You, And Everyone We Know’ or when you guys were saying none of the actors were familiar in “Never Rarely Sometimes Always,” I shouted that you do know one - indie rock artist Sharon Van Etten, who was in the OA. Most of all, though, I’m saying thank you while you talk for your recommendations. I binged “Alice in Borderland” and “Perpetual Grace, LTD” among others. Lastly, I don’t even mind when we have differing opinions, which isn’t often, because you guys talk about things in such a hilarious manner.
Thanks for giving me something to look forward to every week! Keep up the great work! Cheers from Nebraska!
The John Romita Jr of Podcasts
This podcast is that pretentious friend of a friend that hangs out with you and your buddies at Denny’s and doesn’t need to be asked before his opinion is spoken. He seems to have all the inside info on pop culture shows and movies that he found while scrolling around the streaming services and watched just to tell you about it before you even knew it existed.
Just busting balls. These guys go deeper and on a wider range than any other show. Great rating system (even though I rarely agree), funny host and guests and laid back vibes. Only been listening for a few months but it’s a regular on my nightly listen to at work rotation. Always ready for the next episode. Only complaint is the vaping into the mic. Other than that keep it up.
