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’re kvetching about being old, remembering cassettes and vinyl, talking Philadelphia sports, and just generally telling kids to get off our lawn. See and hear more after the jump.
While Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. team face off with Hydra in the present day for the Obelisk, that first 0-8-4 object known alternately as The Diviner, its secrets may lie in the past as Hayley Atwell playing Agent Peggy Carter of the Strategic Scientific Reserve returns in tonight’s episode. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Things We Bury.”
In the last episode I speculated that one way to stop Iris’ interest in ‘The Streak’ would be for The Flash to reveal his presence to the public. Based on the title of this week’s episode, that may very well be the answer that will be pursued. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Flash Is Born,” and the television debut of the Rogue known as Girder!
“Teen Tony.” Those two words will make even the most dedicated classic Avengers fan flinch just a little. They represent one of the things that occurred in one of the most hated crossover events in Avengers comics history – The Crossing. This week on “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble” we are confronted with a teen Tony, and other wild effects of the Time Stone, let’s hope the others aren’t also reminiscent of storyline. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Age of Tony Stark.”
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 the topic of discussion is that pesky upcoming movie from Fox, The Fantastic Four. Ray is a huge FF fan and recent reports and rumors of what to expect in this new film version of Marvel’s First Family have him climbing the walls. See and hear more after the jump.
The title of this episode, “The Writing on the Wall,” conjures something that we have been wondering about for quite some time – what is that alien writing? Sources have claimed it is Kree, but that has never been said on the show “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” itself. Why is Coulson driven to carve it? What does it mean? And if it’s a map, where does it lead? Hopefully, answers can be found in this episode, and after the jump.
After the last episode of “The Flash” with a wild ride with Captain Cold, filled with all sorts of good Flash-iness, we’re reverting back to Firestorm foes, although Plastique is one of most dangerous of the bunch. Meet me after the super-speed jump for my thoughts on “Plastique.”
One of my favorite comics from the 1970s was Defenders, and slapdash teaming of heroes who would never ever make up a decent or harmonious superhero team – it’s initial formation included Doctor Strange, the Hulk, the Sub-Mariner, and the Silver Surfer, just to give you an idea. One of my favorite characters in that series was a later member who became a mainstay of the book – Nighthawk. This week on “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble” he makes his (serious) animated debut. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Nighthawk.”
