    November 21, 2017 6:54 am Yeah thanks @andyb, I know it's not 1985. And why 1985 of all years? This is is exactly what I mean some people seem more excited to make a pithy comment than to focus on a systemic issue while acknowledging that they aren't connected enough to know anything truly about it. Take this seriously absolutely. Realize you don't know what happened and from your perspective this is the telephone game- probably a smart idea. Newsarama reporting on re-tweets isn't enough. Does it seem like Ron might not have been an ok dude to work with sometimes- maybe. It does seem like there are enough people saying that. Specific predatory behaviour against women? I'm not finding it, hence my HR comment. I think ChinBo37 summed up pretty well what seems to be out there and I think his approach is sensible.
    November 20, 2017 6:24 pm "I googled the stuff..." Well it sounds like you're an expert. Unless you know someone personally involved let's remember that we probably shouldn't pass final judgement on anyone based on accusations and allegations. I did some googling too and what I found sounded more like someone who needs a visit to HR but who knows, the point being most of us on this side of it won't know.
    November 14, 2017 11:32 am Not everyone follows the guys on social media if you just go by the podcast Ron specifically said it wasn't like when he worked at Image so one could imagine from that that it wasn't a similar conflict of interest. I wasn't implying that Ron didn't have a job before, just that lots of podcasters do and podcast as well. If it is a similar position to working in the industry again- that makes sense but it isn't what Ron himself said in his announcement here on the podcast.
    November 12, 2017 5:24 pm Seriously will Tom King just leave it alone with the suicide thing. Wtf. It is a shortcut. And at this point it's on repeat. Tom King is Absolutely making it weird for weird's sake the difference in comparison to Lost is that he's just Better at pulling it out. Doesn't mean it's still not formulaic. He just adds some better craft- to be fair. Still repetitious. Ron leaving is tough but we've been through it before add to it for those who listened to the Jim Viscardi interview- his answer to being asked if he would ever return to iFanboy the first time he left- " I don't think so that ship has sailed" only to come back and start a Patreon then leave again. While the Jamokes who also have jobs remain to hold down the fort. We are clinging to the time codes b/c it's bedrock and something that few podcasts offer that is actually essential. There are some very cool - well written things happening in Metal but I agree with Conor in that DC has a tick about reducing and explaining everything down to a meta gene or Nth metal causing abilities and powers or Heroes of destiny. It absolutely reduces the importance of the individual accomplishments of each hero. DC in all media is Thristy to establish a cohesion and shared universe. Beyond rushing the time- individual elements that accumulate and combination of themes over time. They are trying to quick bake a cake in 30 easy minutes that takes all day.
    November 6, 2017 12:57 pm I am looking forward to hearing more about why Ron can't make the weekly podcast. I think most other pod-casters have another job- including the two jamokes. I got the conflict of interest with working at Image the first time, so we are in suspense to hear the reason this time. And I hope there are many- pop-ins Ronald Popins
    November 5, 2017 6:00 pm Second to all of that. +1 Time codes.
    November 5, 2017 2:51 pm My biggest issue with this movie is that we are now robbed of what could have been Two amazing films. An impactful Raganarok and a truly kick ass Planet Hulk movie. Both stories are examples of some of the best comics either title has had and we sacrificed those pure stories to get Lethal Weapon in space. Why do studios seem to believe that no single story can be brought to the screen, that an adaptation Has to be a mashup of several story lines with multiple villains in order to work?!
    November 5, 2017 2:47 pm I think Vacur005 point might be that maybe they shouldn't change that much for a review podcast. More over maybe some time should be given before the various Trusts record. Because Conor is right opinions here can and do change drastically. Usually the first day or so after the intial screening there is glowing even gushing reviews that seem pretty biased to the initial experience rather than a critiques as a whole.
