Stupid, delicious Ben & Jerry's.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 06:42 PM)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 05:38 PM)

BGC?

@  Bass X0 : (21 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Enjoy the fudgy icing of this Hostess Cup Cake!

@  Telly : (21 February 2020 - 02:31 PM)

harlock is on tubi as well. not dubbed though :(

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 February 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2020 - 10:26 PM)

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Please ignore.  Old man here apparently doesn't know the difference between the "Search" field and the "Shoutbox" field.

 

Also doesn't know how to delete from the shoutbox

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 07:33 AM)

Huhn. Penny arcade was right, the division 2 is literally 3 dollars...

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 February 2020 - 11:05 PM)

Oh, Wicked Cool Toys got the Halo toy license. This is a big year for Jazwares

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 February 2020 - 07:02 PM)

iTunes/Apple TV has the complete Cowboy Bebop series for just $5!

@  fourteenwings : (17 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

The Samsung Galaxy B-TOOM!

@  Paladin : (16 February 2020 - 07:20 PM)

business is booming.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2020 - 06:49 PM)

SAmsung has you covered. Exploding phones.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

@  Rycochet : (16 February 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 February 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Glad to hear all the positive response, even if the first episode does have some audio errors here and there (future episodes will be better). And please, any and all feedback is appreciated and will help us to make the show even better.

Also, if you're enjoying the show, be sure to leave us a review on iTunes, as that's one of the best ways to help spread the word.

I threw this out on Twitter, but how would listeners feel about us doing some smaller bonus content to fill in a weekly schedule, even if some of it is hosted solo (essentially just one of our hosts talking to the microphone)? Also, what should said bonus content be? Retrospectives on past IDW stories? Non-IDW comics like the old Marvel ROM series? Non-comics coverage of things like RID or Last Knight? Let us know.

Retrospectives sound fun! Maybe on "off-weeks" you could do, like, one or two collected volumes of older Transformers/GI Joe stuff?

(Or just... review Action Man.)

I still haven't found time to finish the first one yet, but I would certainly welcome the odd smaller chunk here and there. 

 

I would suggest that explaining the convoluted nonsense that is the pre-Rev Joe books would be a topic that is always in demand. :)

Oh we could certainly do the Scioli series. Maybe get Chris in on that. We would definitely do Action Man. We could possibly do it post-Revolutionaries/pre-First Strike.

I do need an excuse to read pre-Rev Joe.

 

Oh god, even the Traviss run?

Well, sure, probably skip the Traviss run. I mean that book can literally kill a person.

Can't remember if our conversation about the Traviss run made it into the final episode or if that happened after the end of the show, but Callum went pretty into detail about how bad it was.

 

EDIT: Yes, we did talk about it. Callum was very adamant to the poor quality of Traviss's writing.

Oh, I didn't mean the Scioli stuff, I meant "Transformers or GI Joe".
TFvsGIJoe is good too, though.

Can I just say that the Action Man theme was an inspired choice of intro?

Thank you. I originally tried to put together our own theme song that featured some audio clips from the various cartoon themes, but was never really satisfied with it. When I went searching for the Action Man opening, I liked it so much I was like, "Let's just use that for the first episode." Then I liked it more and more during editing, so it stuck.

Hadn't really thought about it when I read the solicits, but hearing it out loud... in a universe shared with GI Joe, "Rom's opening Salvo" is a worrying phrase.

Oh my god. I hate myself.

I just finished episode two.

I remember NOTHING about the MASK cartoon. I watched it as a kid, but I couldn't tell you a single thing about it.

But then you monsters play the theme song, and... my heart just lit up. I was flooded with joy. That song. That song!!! A shot of pure nostalgia straight into my brain.

I had to literally sever both of my own arms to prevent the finalisation of an Amazon order. What have I become?

Say what you will about the MASK show (it can range from gut-wrenchingly awful to so awful its amazing!), but that song is a masterwork. Shuki Levy at his finest!

 

Also, little update: I'm a HeroesCon this weekend, and I'll be interviewing Casey Coller and Brendan Cahill. If anyone has any questions you want answered, leave them in this thread.
