On this week’s episode Chris and Joe discuss the recently announced participation of Robert Downey, Jr. in Captain America 3, Marvel also announcing that Cap 3 will tell the story of Civil War, the return of The Walking Dead, the return of Arrow, new developments on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the #gamergate controversy and a whole lot more.
Those who go to cons are used to seeing protestors. For the most part they are the judgmental type who tell us we are all sinners, going to hell, need to repent, blah, blah, blah. But at New York Comic Con, a new group took to the streets and though their message is pretty clear, who they are isn’t. Donning red hoods and white masks, these anonymous-esque folks gave messages leading back to a twitter account YoureWelcomeSOS as well as an associated YouTube channel (the video can be seen after the jump).
Under the name Dramatis Personai, the group is seemingly protesting the demise of privacy. Most likely looking to hit a cord with the technology focused NYCC audience, the messages of the group strangely resemble the classic messages from the classic Watchmen, possibly another reason why the group targeted New York Comic Con this weekend. Drastically different from the Westboro Baptist Church or even Anonymous, the group has so far been respectful of the people they interact with while calling for their attention they have not taken to invasive scare tactics.
As we hear more about this group and their involvement at NYCC, we will be sure to update.
It’s an all-new episode of The Flickcast for your listening pleasure. Yes, we made it three weeks in a row. Excelsior!
On this week’s episode Chris and Joe discuss the recently announced Twin Peaks series on Showtime, the prequel movie Fire Walk with Me, the continuing saga of Netflix and theaters banning its upcoming movies, new developments on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and a whole lot more, more, more.
Picks this week include Chris’ pick of the movie Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck and directed by David Fincher, and Joe’s pick of the movie Transformers: Age of Extinction. Yeah, we know.
That’s right folks, we’re going for the record. Two episodes … in a row! As always, no need to thank us. We do it for the love.
Speaking of love (or similar), Chris and Joe have a whole slew of new and recurring topics for the show this week. Some of these topics include the return of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Star Trek movie casting rumors, the Marvel vs. Jack Kirby Estate lawsuit, the return of the Bionic Woman and a whole lot more, more, more.
Picks this week include Chris’ pick of the novel Patient Zero by Jonathan Maberry and Joe’s pick of the new Bionic Woman Season Four comic written by Brandon Jerwa with art by David T. Cabrera and cover by Sean Chen.
On this week’s show, Chris and Joe discuss the latest from the upcoming new Star Wars movie, the brand new iOS 8 and iPhone 6, upcoming Fall TV shows like Gotham and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., True Detective casting news and, you guessed it, more. A lot more.
The fall TV season is finally here. September 22nd marks the premiere of Gotham on FOX. The next night is the return of the love it or hate it (I’m on the love side) Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC. Two weeks later continues the comic series extravaganza, with the highly anticipated The Flash premiere on CW on October 7th, followed the next night by the return of Arrow (also on CW). And on October 24th, NBC gives it a go with their version of Constantine.
Want something a little more scary? FOX’s Sleepy Hollow begins its second season on September 22nd. American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres on October 8th on FX. On October 12th, AMC’s The Walking Dead returns, after what I felt was a pretty lackluster season finale. And on October 24th, NBC’s hit (and my favorite show) Grimm premieres season 4.
For this season, I had to decide which shows to recap for you, the people. So, for the fall 2014 season, I will be doing recaps for the following shows: The Walking Dead, Arrow, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and The Flash. I chose to hold off on Gotham, just in case FOX pulls the plug, or if it’s a massive flop.
So get ready, because Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. starts this week. Does anybody want to go to Tahiti?
That’s right all you iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch fans, Apple’s latest OS has dropped today. As you likely know it’s called iOS 8 and has a host of new features, enhancements and more to make your use and enjoyment of your Apple device that much more, well, useful and enjoyable.
Users can download the new software by navigating to the “general” tab in their device’s settings menu and selecting “software update.” You can also connect your device to the latest version of iTunes to download the update.
iOS 8 will work on all devices as new, or newer, than the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4s. Although, as to how well it will run on an iPad 2 or iPhone 4s, well, probably not that well. If you’re still rocking those devices, and want to take full advantage of iOS 8, it might be time for an upgrade.
iOS 8 has a lot of nifty new features including HealthKit, which allows third-party apps and, one would suspect, the upcoming Apple Watch, to monitor your health status and suggest ways to improve it. It also features new hotness like Family Sharing, which lets you share iTunes purchases, calendar information, and messages with a group of people. iOS 8 also brings improved notifications, a Spotlight search function that lets you search inside apps, and the ability to install third-party keyboards such as Swype. See, nifty.
There’s also a few other new features, such as the ability to sync phone calls, files, and SMS messages between iOS 8 devices and Macs, that will have to wait until the next version of OS X (aka Yosemite) is released. Rumor has it that will be next month.
We’re back again with an all-new episode of The Flickcast. Be happy because it probably won’t last. But for now …
On this week’s show, Chris and Joe discuss and debate more Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn’s personality, upcoming TV series like Shutter Island and The Omen, Denzel Washington’s career and his upcoming Equalizer movie and the brand new season of Doctor Who.
Guess which of your favorite hosts liked the season premiere and which didn’t? Not that hard to figure out. Of course, that’s not all they talk about. There’s also the usual “more.”
Last month right before Comic-Con, Loot Crate released one of their best crates with a phenomenal Villains crate that included a totally original and exclusive Joki shirt alongside, amongst other things, a pair of Deadpool socks. It was going to be pretty hard to follow that up. But who better to show up the Villains than… the Heroes.
This month WallE and JC put their physical prowess to the test in an effort to capture a bunch of items based off of some of their favorite childhood heroes along with an exclusive Pop made just for Loot Crate. As some of you have seen in past crates, WallE and JC have an addiction for the little guys and battling over an exclusive one could possibly end their friendship and Whiskey & Waffles as we know it.
Anyway, on this week’s show, Chris and Joe discuss and debate The Expendables 3, the upcoming HBO series Westworld, the look of the new stormtroopers (and more) from Star Wars: Episode VII, TV series like The Last Ship, The Strain and Outlander and yes, even the relative merits of Jedi facial hair. Of course, that’s not all they talk about. There’s also the usual “more.”
