Hello and welcome to part 1 of 3 of our Quarantine watches! Recorded in late April during the lockdown, this episode provides a time capsule of films and tv shows Albert, Austin, and returning guest Zephyr have been watching to pass the time and temporarily drown out the whirlwind of the current atmosphere. We talk greats like Space Force, Chopping Mall, Birds of Prey, a grab bag of things we had been wanting to watch but haven't quite gotten around you. Have have you watched during the quarantine? Let us know in the comments, or on our twitter and facebook, which you can find links for below!

Welcome back! This week we have frequent guest Zephyr back for a special update to our State of Criticism cast. For this discussion we focus on Not So Awesome, a document released by former members of Channel Awesome documenting what happened during their tenure at the site. We go over our thoughts on the document, as Zephyr, a long-time Wall fan, unloads on Nostalgia Critic's latest parody video on The Wall. Tune in!

You can read the document here, and draw your own conclusions on what to make of this whole debacle.

August 24, 2019  

DISCLAIMER: This cast was recorded a year ago, before the Sony/Marvel Split, before Spiderman: Far From Home came out, and well before Endgame came out, so there are some.. unfortunate anachronisms. We kept them in because it's a weird time capsule which serves as a stark highlight for recent events.

Hello and welcome! This week we delve into some Marvel Cinematic AU with returning guest Paul Andolina with the 1977 Spiderman Made-for-TV movie!

We also briefly discuss other '70s Marvel Movie attempts and wax about how far we've come and what the future may hold.

I am one with the Force, the Force is with me, I am one with the Force, the Force is with me...

Welcome, Star Wars fans! We said we weren't going to do a full episode on Rogue One, but well... we lied! Actually, this one is a much welcome Patreon request from Paul Adolina, who is also our guest!

So here we talk what makes Rogue One so special, namely that it's a Star Wars movie with all the war movie tropes put in! All new characters (along with a few familiar faces), and a great story that was only hinted at in the main trilogy! 

Come join us as we explore the most unique Star Wars film to date!
