What makes a hero a hero? Is it a drive to help people in need? Superhuman powers and a cool costume? Winning a reality show? Pouring billions of dollars into a movie franchise? Or is a hero someone who records a podcast about a bunch of bad TV and movies once a week? Yes. That's it.

Sam, Val, and Gigalithic are three heroes and they're here to protect you from the worst villains imaginable: the aforementioned bad TV and movies. Maybe sometimes they'll watch something good, but it's usually an accident and doesn't make them any less heroic.

    Dunning and Kruging

    They said it couldn't be done! They said it shouldn't be done! Sam has been dragged back kicking and screaming to once again watch a bad-looking movie: The Flash! Is this the worst-looking movie we've ever watched? Possibly! Should this movie exist? Absolutely not! Let's all grit our teeth and try to tolerate two simultaneous Ezras Miller as we investigate the mystery of the 100 CGI mothers and the crunchy purple guy who punched the Flash into last week, literally.

    Super-Speed Turn

    Super-Speed Turn

    After 400 years, Val heard the telepathic messages Giga has been sending out, asking someone to watch the Spider-Man tokusatsu with them. So here we were! Two out of three of the old gang are back together to watch some more superpowered goofiness, and Spiderman (Japanese)(1978)(TV show) does not disappoint. This show is like taking a ride on the back of a superspeed motorcycle, AKA sick as hell!! This week we meet our main cast of characters, including the roguish Takuya, who loves riding his bike and hopes nobody makes him pick up their centuries-long grudge, and Garia, from the planet Spider, who's probably a normal guy. We also meet Professor Monster, and I don't even need to explain his deal. You get it just from the name! This week, Spiderman becomes Spidered, we say hello and goodbye to Professor Yamashiro, and our hero fwip-fwip-fwips his way to victory over two of the funniest looking guys I've ever seen. Unlike our other seasons of Zero to Zero, watching along is highly encouraged.

    Zero to Zero returns! That's right, everyone is here, Giga, Val, and... Jo??? The gang talks about the first third of the critical darling, 1999's "Mystery Men" starring Ben Stiller, William H. Macy, and Hank Azaria in only his second most problematic role that I can think of. We meet our heroes, villains, antagonistic other heroes, Tom Waits, who is horny for octogenarians, and much more!

    Enter Racism Man

    Enter Racism Man

    Watch out, here he comes! The racism man is in town and really went bananas on the script for Mystery Men in this part. But that's not all, the movie also does some peak aughties humor that only guys who are NOT gay can pull off. Stay on the lookout for really, really funny jokes such as when a woman, or when a skunk humps someone's leg. It goes on for a long time. We also meet some new characters, some who we enjoyed, and some who are The Spleen. Don't forget to leave a five-star review on itunes if you learned something this episode! Sorry for teaching you the pervert terms, but the movie brought them up first.

    Shaped Like Executive Dysfunction

    Shaped Like Executive Dysfunction

    Well, we finally finished Mystery Men, and the movie didn't get better since last time. In the third act, the Mystery Men gang do a mega whoopsie daisy and superkill the superhero they came to rescue. Oh no! Now it's up the them and their Chekov's Tank to defeat Casanova Frankenstein at his Frankenstein Casa. The hijinks that ensue can only be described as "not actually funny" and "improv'ed whole-cloth." This movie was not good, we're going back to directing commercials now.

Super Hilarious!

Val, Giga, and Sam discussed Who Wants To Be A Superhero, a bizarre and terrible sy-fy channel reality show with a tiny budget and the backing of the late, great(?) Stan Lee and his framed poster on Stripperella. The first season featured such oddities as raw foodism, a man with concerningly low nipples who carried around "the most advanced weapon to date", and rotiart, the unsuspicious superhero. The second season featured a billionaire with a god complex as a hero, erin esurance (the world's hottest insurance mascot), and a challenge where people got stung by bees and dumped in honey. Now they're discussing the snyder cut, aka the mommy box saga. An amazing and hilarious podcast. Listen to it if you can!

Loving the podcast!! I hope these superheroes have heat-resistance cause they’re getting burned!
