    Hunter x Hunter: Episode 12

    Hunter x Hunter: Episode 12

    We’re back and still in the trick tower during the 287th hunter exam with our adventuring party of PikaPika the stolid yet scarlet – the rookie crusher douch bot – Mr Oreo the racist scourge – Killowatt the vampire murderer – and Gon, the little engine who could with a nebulous morality compass.

    We’ve left the big room with the prisoners post heart attack – but not the kind of heart attack people Are used to usually heart attacks have to do with clutching your left arm gasping for breath well I suppose gasping for breath did have something to do with this particular attack but more so than that it had to do with KW straight merking a heart out of a grown man's chest cavity which was a high point within the three straight bottle episodes but it's OK because we're now in a smaller room so I'm sure it will be high octane and I'm not complaining listen last night I watched a edited version of the freeza saga you know the Dragon Ball Z Ark where Goku took 21 episodes to charge a spirit bomb while everyone looked both afraid and impressed and this version though was a 2 hour long movie of it that was great but I did get me thinking my attention span since the time I watched Dragon Ball Z at the ripe age of 12 has diminished greatly like if I can get through that God dam spirit bomb I can get out of this god damn tower

    Hunter x Hunter: Episode 11

    Another bottle episode?! oh me oh my. Someone better rip someone elses heart out with their bare hands or imma be pissed.

    Mr. Oreo is facing Leroute – and it shall be a game of chance, a gamble, if you will, which I personally will, because Leroute wants it that way – gambling is her overall vibe.

    And Ill be honest before we go on – I’m psyched to get out of this room whenever it occurs. One bottle episode is interesting. Three causes bone scraping chills I’m kinda over – but I’m not over the show! That’s for dang sure! Actually, I think it stands to reason that if I was binging this show and not doing a show about it I would be totally fine at the moment because it would have not taken me weeks to get through one room in a story – ANYWHO lets watch Mr. Oreo fail, one of my favorite pastimes.

Great show!

These guys do a great show, irreverent and funny, and mostly well-researched with some notable exceptions like, what’s an orrery? Google is your friend. I’ve listened to the Perry Mason, Lovecraft Country and Raised By Wolves episodes. They do a plot summary with humorous interjections and it’s really entertaining, a nice complement to the official HBO podcast on Lovecraft Country, which is very informative but very serious and opinionated. Highly recommended. Only gave it 4 stars because they sometimes take a while to release, like last week’s episode (released on Saturday) review wasn’t released until today (Friday). Probably because they are reviewing multiple shows. Otherwise, 5 stars.

If you love poorly research snarky commentary, these talentless boiz are for you. If you are looking for insights on your favorite HBO Max show, keep shopping!

I was wrong

I thought I liked these guys.
Every show I've listened to these guys dissect (Perry Mason, Lovecraft Country), they make off-color comments and say downright... weird things.
Their analysis goes from legitimately thoughtful to downright incomprehensible in seconds.
They sometimes go on tangents, some of which are normal, some of which - are not.
Thought I liked them.
I was wrong.
I love them.
