August 16, 2017 3:13 pm ...and in the defense of the voicemailer, I too was confused by the IFanboy hurm shirt. I knew it was Rorschach's goto exclamation, but like the caller I figured I'd miss some IFanboy-specific joke or gag about it, like Electro, or I had missed that episode or it was before I started listening. Even Cooper's comment here confuses me, I don't remember anyone saying "Hurm" on the show. -Rustyautoparts
August 10, 2017 5:43 pm Just to be clear on these 2 critical point: 1) I backed the original interpretation, Electro can be "10" or "1" interchangeably. The T-shirt looks cool. But "always" a 1? Never 2) Wearing a Wonderman costume is always a curse UNLESS it is that red nehru jacket with side pocket rockets and blue glasses.
August 10, 2017 11:26 am Electro is always a "1"?? What nonsense is this?? I say thee nay! This all started with Ron's brilliant insight that when ranking costumes, Electro is a "10". May those who claim Electro is a "1" be forever condemned to wear Wonderman costumes.
November 11, 2016 12:17 pm I like the type of hero Strange is because I can relate to him. That is, I've met gifted surgeons (or other scientists) who have some level of natural brilliance coupled with a high work ethic. That may not be me, but I've met these guys so this type of hero seems somewhat familiar and even more so, possible. I think that is partly why Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man also works for me. I've met smart driven entrepreneurs before, so again, I can relate to that type of character, or imagine that sort of person in a more superheroic version. Enjoyed the review show guys, thanks! But I can't believe you didn't watch in 3D! Gods, you probably weren't stoned either. Your loss. :D
June 28, 2016 4:23 pm Just because you guys didn't like Nemesis* and didn't even try** Kick-Ass sequels (also awesome. especially the final kick-ass series) does not mean Millar had some sort of creative dip like you mention everytime his name comes up. And I'll keep whining every time you do! :) **"The human eye can only read so much Kick-Ass, Mozart" - Conor Salieri
June 16, 2016 2:46 pm The Rebirth plan 'we are reviewing all these books, period' runs counter to the IFanboy 'lets opt for picking books we can be positive about' attitude. I've gotta say I am completely unexcited about the fact they've decided to renumber/relaunch the books YET AGAIN. I get excited about great creative teams (screw that says DC, we go with our same old Tomasis, etc, and btw, we care so little about creative teams we are going to put out books at a rate impossible for a single creative team to keep up with...no thanks I say). You go Josh! I can't wait to hear the hangover from Conor when the books he likes suddenly switch teams. You could hear the show pick up with excitement once they left the Rebirth discussions and actually talked about they wanted to talk about.
June 14, 2016 11:51 am I had never heard this story of the 3 of you playing w/headsets before...it really explains a lot about how the weekly podcast came about, like you say, you had some confidence the 3 of you talking together would work. Thanks for sharing!
June 10, 2016 6:10 pm Silver Surfer for sure. That book is outstanding. @yorickrand - I'm not loving this Strange story, it feels a lot like the Thor God Butcher story retold.
May 17, 2016 4:10 pm I also thought Ron was over the top during the BvS review, and very much agree with Jd's first few sentences of paragraph 2 above. I also think Josh's comments about this topic gently saying he might not have gone about the same way were spot on. It was neither Ron's nor IFanboy's best moment and was noticeable because all three of you have repeated numerous times in the past that "That sucked" is not the sort of constructive reviewing you do. I'm giving Ron a mulligan, and I'm guessing Ron might have heard from Conor or Josh post recording, and maybe even Ron himself has second thoughts. I didn't like BvS either fwiw. Also, regarding CA: Civil War, I think the 5 points Mike D. brought up were somewhat addressed during the CA: Civil War podcast? No one gave the movie an A+, it was all A-'s as I remember, and I think the slow start, weak villain were some of the main reasons why it wasn't A+ for the reviewers.
