And we’re back, after the eight-part “Agent Carter” event, we are back in the present and catching up with “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” When last we saw our heroes, the hidden city had been found, and the Diviner had been activated. People died, and people changed. The Doctor was revealed as Mister Hyde, his daughter Skye as Daisy ‘Quake’ Johnson, and no one has yet uttered the word ‘Inhumans’ …yet. Meet me after the jump, see what they become, and read my thoughts on “Aftershocks.”
Finally it’s here, the moment we have all been dreading and waiting for with anxious anticipation all this second season of “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble” – Thanos is on Earth with the Infinity Gauntlet, and only the Avengers stand in his way. As Stan ‘The Man’ Lee used to say in situations like this, “‘Nuff said!” Be prepared for the battle of the century, or based on this series’ track record, the disappointment of the century… Either way, meet me after the jump for my review of “Thanos Triumphant!”
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, Ray returns, and we’re talking about Glenn’s movie serial stash, Brock Lesnar, and what’s good on Amazon Prime, along with all the usual stuff. See and hear more after the jump.
Here we are at the last episode of “Marvel’s Agent Carter.” I hesitate to say this is the season finale and no decision has been made yet for more, but let me be the first to say I wouldn’t mind, and would welcome another period piece break with these characters next year with the also as-yet-unrenewed “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Let’s enjoy it while it lasts, and meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Valediction.”
One of the dumbest conceits about superhero comics is the concept of keeping dangerous items and weapons confiscated from super-villains in the headquarters of the superheroes. How nice of the heroes to keep all the goodies in one place, right? Here’s what happens when Thanos comes calling for the Infinity Stones. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on the newest episode of “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble” – “Widow’s Run.”
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, Ray is too sick to talk, so I’ve recruited The Bride, Jenn Walker, to sub for him. We’re talking about the big “Saturday Night Live” anniversary special, the new Ghostbusters, and even comics, and television, along with a new spin on all the usual stuff. See and hear more after the jump.
Each week, one of Biff Bam Pop’s illustrious writers will delve into one of their favorite things. Perhaps it’s a movie or album they’ve carried with them for years. Maybe it’s something new that moved them and they think might move you too. Each week, a new subject, a new voice writing on… something they love.
I’ll be talking about my love of the amazing Amazon, Wonder Woman. She’s not the first female superhero, or even the first patriotic hero, but she’s the first lady of superheroics, and I love her. Meet me after the jump, for some of my favorite stuff.
This weekend we’ll have a comedy showdown at the box office with two new movies vying for the attention of audiences. As The DUFF and Hot Tub Time Machine 2 enter theaters this weekend along with the Kevin Costner starrer with an inspirational true story, McFarland USA, how will the champs of previous weeks like SpongeBob, Kingsmen, American Sniper, and last week’s not-so-surprise blockbuster, Fifty Shades of Grey. Who will stay on top, who will join them? Meet me after the jump for our predictions.
Agent-for-the-moment Peggy Carter has been captured by her own organization and accused of treason. Can she explain herself as her former SSR teammates close in on Howard Stark? Things are heating up in this second to the last episode of “Marvel’s Agent Carter.” All this, and Dottie the Cold War Black Widow, and possibly Dr. Faustus, are still stalking about. Meet me in the shadows on the other side for my thoughts on “Snafu.”
Time travel is a major recurring theme in the comics for The Flash. Two of his deadliest enemies, and even Iris West herself, come from various points in the far future, he even raised a family there. Able to run at the speed of light, our hero could and did breach the time barrier often, and now with DNA evidence that Barry was present at the murder of his mother, time travel comes to the TV series. Strap yourselves in and meet me after the super speed bump for my thoughts on “Fallout.”
