Pick of the Week Podcast

Pick of the Week #567 – Southern Bastards #16

Show Notes

Say that our podcast is Electro and…

It’ll make sense when you listen. Maybe not, actually. Ron Richards, Josh Flanagan, and Conor Kilpatrick are back with some comics that were chosen by us to read, and others that were chosen by people who specifically wanted to punish us. But their vindictive voting cannot stem the tide of a good time talking about comics and rating (rating) things, plus TR Talk. Why hasn’t Ron watched Friday Night Lights?

  1. February 7, 2010. Episode #220. Aka, the greatest episode in the history of ifanboy.

  2. On a scale of 1-10, where 1 is Electro and 10 is a different thing, this was a great episode. Thanks guys!

  3. Man. Hearing you advertise Go Daddy brought back a flood of memories.

  4. I had to check and make sure I didn’t accidently download episode 267 or something.

  5. #notmyJoker

  6. @Ron, the Will Smith wide brimmed ‘pimp’ hat was lifted from the Deadshot short in the Batman Gotham Knight DVD. In it, he is reimagined as an upper crust aristocrat with a dandy look.

    @Conor I had no problems with Leto’s take on the Joker, you guys still haven’t read the Azzarello and Bermejo OGN, which is depressing as it is a key Joker text. He is basically an unhinged crime boss in that book, rather than a supervillain/agent of chaos. While his look is clearly ott, there are certain shots where Leto smiles, not laughs, where he physically looks exactly like the comic. It’s a shame that Warner Bros butchered his performance, as he has nothing of any substance to do in the movie, but nevertheless he is compelling when he is onscreen. Please articulate your critiques more substantially next time as we’re still not sure why you didn’t like ‘everything’.

    The 1 being Electro is another IFanboy classic

    • Oh, I’ve read JOKER. I read it when it came out. It’s fine; I’m not a huge fan. What I liked of it I liked despite the way The Joker was portrayed.

    • Design wise- the look of Suicide Squad joker – is basically ICP.
      Seems like someone thought that was acceptable.
      It is not.
      Unless you happen to be a jugalo.

  7. Apropos of nothing-
    But put Al Ewing- Christ Yost and Christos Gage on the next Marvel ‘Event’
    It will have big ideas that actually make sense- it will have a solid all story telling that is true to the characters involved.

  8. I hope to see many more Electro-based ratings in the future.

    I missed the boat on Green Valley originally but just caught up with comixology’s holiday Image sale and Ive really enjoyed it. I think that’s going to be a great hardcover when it comes out.

  9. Slacking on my reading so I was only able to finish All-Star Batman #6 this morning, and will listen to that part of the podcast later today. But I’m REALLY hoping everyone appreciated the awesome way which an “I got this” was rudely interrupted on the last panel of the second story.
