There seem to be two types of people in this world – folks who think Spider-Man should be in the Avengers, and folks who think the wall crawler should not be an Avenger. Where do you stand on the issue? In the comics, the web-slinger has been one of Earth’s Mightiest for some time now, but it took decades to happen. Now, Marvel’s latest animated version of Spider-Man joins the team in this weekend’s new episode of “Ultimate Spider-Man.” Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Avenging Spider-Man.”
While editor-in-chief Andy Burns is partying at the FAN EXPO Canada and talking “Twin Peaks” with the stars of the show, this is Glenn Walker filling in with the weekend box office report here at Biff Bam Pop!. Did The November Man triumph over the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Find out after the jump!
Last time, we met The Doctor, as played by Peter Capaldi, but as with most regeneration episodes of “Doctor Who,” they’re all about getting back on their feet. You usually don’t see what the new Doctor is all about until his second episode – and this one is a doozy! Right out of the box, The Doctor and Clara run up against his archenemies – The Daleks! Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Into the Dalek.”
Biff Bam Pop! presents The GAR! Podcast, the Glenn Walker and Ray Cornwall weekly podcast where they talk unrehearsed about whatever happens to come to mind. It’s an audio-zine for your mind, a nerd exploration of a nerd world. This week, we are back up to a full-length episode after technical difficulties last week, with a celebration of Jack ‘the King’ Kirby’s birthday, Milo Manara’s Spider-Woman, why Glenn hates Shazam, and Ray’s journey into DC Comics’ New 52 on the agenda. See and hear more after the jump.
This has been a weekend of beginnings and endings here at Biff Bam Pop!. Last night we saw the series eight premiere of “Doctor Who” with a brand new actor in the title role, and tonight, we’re looking at the end of “True Blood,” yes, the final episode of the series is here at last. Meet me after the jump, for my review of the hopefully appropriately titled “Thank You.”
Finally the wait is over. Several months after the end of the Matt Smith era back in “The Time of the Doctor,” the new era with Peter Capaldi as The Doctor begins. What kind of Doctor will he be? What kind of adventures will he have? It all begins with a great Jurassic roar over the streets of Victorian London, as we enter an exciting new chapter in the history of “Doctor Who.” Meet me after the jump for the first episode of Series Eight, “Deep Breath.”
Tomorrow night marks the world premiere of series eight of “Doctor Who.” It’s the show everyone is talking about, it’s purportedly the most watched television program on Earth, it’s cool to watch “Doctor Who.” But if you’re already a fan, you know all that. But what if you aren’t? If you are new to Who, #NewtoWHO as the hashtag for The Nerdist goes, here’s a handy guide to what you need to know to enjoy the big premiere tomorrow, after the jump.
