    Episode 233. We're concluding our discussion on Zander Cannon's comic series Kaijumax, talking about the final two volumes! We expand our view on Kaijumax, visiting the court system, death row, and victim reconciliation programs at the prison. But business as normal grinds to a halt when an alien attack threatens Earth, and the kaiju are encouraged to volunteer for the war effort, in exchange for reduced sentences. On the outside, Electogor is able to reunite with his daughter, and other inmates find unexpected connections in the midst of war.

    Die vol. 1-2

    Die vol. 1-2

    Episode 232. We read the first half of the comic series Die, from Kieron Gillen and Stephanie Hans. In 1991, a group of teenagers play a tabletop RPG, and find themselves sucked into the dangerous fantasy world. Decades after their escape, they return to try and find the gamemaster who didn't make it out. Time has passed as normal in the world of Die, and these adults have to face the consequences of the desperate choices they made in their youth, especially as they realize this may be a place where other real-world players have become trapped.

    Megamind

    Megamind

    Episode 231. This week we watched Megamind, a 2010 animated film from Dreamworks. Megamind is an alien supervillain who lives to wreak havoc on Metro City and fight the superhero Metro Man. When his plans finally succeed and he destroys his enemy, he feels more empty than victorious. He trains a new superhero so he has someone to fight again, but as the would-be hero turns to the dark side, Megamind has to step up and become the hero his city needs.

    Kaijumax vol. 3-4

    Episode 230. We're continuing our coverage of Zander Cannon's comic series Kaijumax, talking about volumes 3 and 4 this week, and finishing up the series at the end of the month! Electogor is back in prison, this time accompanied by his young son. To protect himself and his family, he puts a hit out on an old foe -- who turns up dead before any other monsters can get to him. Meanwhile, Electogor's ferocious daughter is in the women's wing of Kaijumax, which sees its own share of threats from the guards and in-fighting that could turn into all-out war.

    Servant s1

    Servant s1

    Episode 228. We watched season one of the Apple TV+ show Servant, produced by M. Night Shyamalan! After the death of their baby, a family uses a lifelike doll to help the distraught mother out of a catatonic state of grief. She believes this doll to be her real son, and hires a shy young woman as a live-in nanny. The girl keeps up the act, even when the mother isn't around. The husband is suspicious of the girl's origins and motives, and the unusual effects she's having on the household. After an impossible event, the family struggles to piece together this mystery and learn how to keep on living.

Podcasting is Auditory, Why be Annoying?

Tried to listen to one episode on a movie I recently watched but I genuinely couldn’t make it past 10 minutes of this podcast before I got way too frustrated to continue. Whatever that th-th-thing the m-m-male host d-d-d-does is so annoying. You can tell he thinks it’s an endearing and comical trope but it’s just annoying and dumbs down the quality of the podcast, especially when used as frequently and incorrectly as it is here. (I’m guessing it’s some weird sophomoric homage to Scooby Doo, where they’d exclaim “M-m-m-monster!” or “gh-gh-ghost!” But if that’s what this is supposed to be why are you saying it for words like “genre” and “government.”?) it’s corny and grating, and this podcast doesn’t have enough substance, depth, comedic merit, or critical analysis for it to be worth listening to. Just another example of a subpar podcast that could’ve been decent with a bit of fine tuning and a more cohesive structure ruined by one extremely juvenile and irritating auditory gag.
