    #66 Brooklyn Nine-Nine & TV Cancellations

    Lots of big news happening in TV this week, seeing up's and down's, cancellations and renewals. While Brooklyn Nine-Nine got most of the spotlight, there was a myriad of other shows rustling about.  This week, we wanted to cover the lifecycle of a television show, and some of the inner-workings you might not be aware of when it comes to how TV gets made!



    Later in the show, we’ll talk about our thoughts on the new Predator trailer, an exciting new Star Wars live-action TV show is in the works, and one of our favorite movie franchises will become a most excellent trilogy!

    #65 Disney Domination

    #65 Disney Domination

    Avengers: Infinity War broke a BAJILLION dollars in record time, ELEVEN DAYS, and that got us thinking ... Disney is kinda running the world now when it comes to entertainment, but we don’t often hear their name associated with properties you’d expect, like Marvel or Lucasfilm.



    Of course, we know this, and a lot of movie fans “know” this, but is it fair to assume that the general movie-going populace does?  We don’t think so ... they’re just going to the movies on a Friday night to see the thing they’ve been seeing commercials for that looks cool.



    In this episode, we break down how Disney has become so dominant in the entertainment marketplace, and the side effects this has on consumers as well as the entire industry itself!



    Enjoy!

    #63 Avengers Infinity War & MCU Viewing Order

    #63 Avengers Infinity War & MCU Viewing Order

    Avengers: Infinity War is coming out this weekend, and as we thought more about it, we never really paid attention to [or were given any reason to care] the Infinity Stones (Gems in the comics), where they were, or why they mattered in the grand scheme of things. So what we wanted to do in this episode was give you a run down of the Official Concession Stand order of the films, as we think you should see them, and along the way track the discovery and relevance of the stones as they apply to the upcoming film, and why you need to know about this to truly enjoy the “marvel” (tee hee) of what they have accomplished through three phases and 18 movies of the MCU in the last 10 years.



    As promised in the episode, here is our official Concession Stand order of all 18 films how we believe they should be viewed ...



    Capt America: First Avenger

    Iron Man

    Iron Man 2

    Incredible Hulk

    Thor

    Avengers

    Thor Dark World

    Guardians

    Guardians 2

    Iron Man 3

    Capt America: Winter Soldier

    Avengers 2: Ultron

    Ant-Man

    Capt America: Civil War

    Black Panther

    Spider-Man Homecoming

    Doctor Strange

    Thor Ragnarok

    #62 Rampage & The Disaster Movie Revival

    #62 Rampage & The Disaster Movie Revival

    Rampage, the latest giant action movie with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, is based on a video game but we feel it falls into a much more important genre: The Disaster Movie.   The disaster movie was a huge and surprising success in the 1970s, made a resurgence throughout the 90s and now we’re excited that they seem to be making a bit of a comeback.  In this episode, we’re going to give you a bit of a history lesson of the disaster movie, list some of our favorites, and and try and figure out what makes them so popular.

A cut above the rest!

There are so many film review type podcasts out there and with so many to choose from, you hav to be sure you’re getting the very best. With Nick and Andy, you get the best of the best. Top notch sound quality mixed with unique, charismatic perspectives; it’s the best out there.

Pop culture explosion

The production value on the show is pretty incredible. The host have great chemistry. The play off of each other very well. You can tell the friendship is long standing and genuine. This is now in my permanent podcast rotation.

Like brothers from another mother

Seriously, humans: what are you doing if you're not listening to The Concession Stand? Andy and Nick are so entertaining to listen to, and I feel as if I've known them both for years. They research each pop culture news clip very, very well and provide humorous insight into movies, TV, and much, much more. The show is extremely well paced with delightful segments like "The Lobby," movie reviews, and their weekly "Stone Cold Salute." On top of it all, they're just really swell gentlemen.
