DC Universe | Doom Patrol | Flex Patrol | Episode 13 | kinda spoilery review

May 17, 2019

Last episode our intrepid heroes busted Cyborg...and Flex Mentallo... out of the Ant Farm.

Rita talks Cyborg into re-installing his GRID operating system after the nanites start turning him more into a robot than human. Cyborg decides to stay with his dad in the hospital after nearly beating him to death when Mr Nobody got into his head. Rita stays with Cyborg to help him through this tough time.

Meanwhile, back at the mansion... Jane and Robot Man try to get Flex's memory to kick in. They do everything they can think of to trigger his memory. The only thing that works is bringing his wife back to him. Short lived reunion as she has had her body wired so if she comes back in contact with Flex, she dies.

We also find out that Larry and the Negative Spirit are in a symbiotic relationship. They need each other to survive.

The best part is when Mr Nobody gives his soliloquy at the end. Everything he says proves we have been right all season long. He says the past episodes have all been character driven drivel. He rips Cyborgs face off the Doom Patrol ad. He even promises we will be getting more superheroes doing superhero stuff! Can't wait!

Do you agree with us that we have sat through enough backstory and should start seeing the Doom Patrol start doing heroic things to stop Mr Nobody? Let us know in the comments.

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts.  If they are good, we will use them on the show.  The number is (575) 323-1332.

SYFY | HAPPY! Season 2 Episode 6 | Kinda spoilery review

SYFY | HAPPY! Season 2 Episode 6 | Kinda spoilery review

May 13, 2019

Happy just keeps getting weirder by the episode. This wasn't our favorite episode, but it was still better than most of the drivel that is on TV nowadays.

In this episode we get to see what happens when you try to torture a Wishee. We also get to witness Happy becoming a man. Pay attention to the bar scene. The Smoking Man Baby is voiced by none other than, Weird Al Yankovic!

Smoothie also drives the wedge deeper between Hailey and her parents. Oh yea, Nick finally finds out that Smoothie is still alive... and is he surprised!

I can't imagine Hailey escaping this holiday with her mental facilities in check. That poor girl is being put through the wringer at school and at home.

We still recommend watching Happy as it is so different from every other show on TV right now. Big thanks to Grant Morrison for creating this world for us to enjoy.

If you agree with us say so in the comments! If you don't agree with us, tell us why we're wrong!

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts.  If they are good, we will use them on the show.  The number is (575) 323-1332.

DC Universe | Doom Patrol | Cyborg Patrol | Episode 12 | kinda spoilery review

DC Universe | Doom Patrol | Cyborg Patrol | Episode 12 | kinda spoilery review

May 11, 2019

Episode 12 is another in a long line of Cyborg bashing we do. Even though this episode had his name on it, he was not the best character in it.

Cyborg managed to get himself captured by the Bureau of Normalcy and taken to the Ant Farm. That isn't gonna look good on his resume to join the Justice League.

Cyborg's dad devises a plan to get him out of the Ant Farm, but it involves using the Doom Patrol as bait. The Doom Patrol agrees to go through with the plan.

The Bureau plans to send Robot Man to the scrap heap, remove the Negative Spirit from Larry, and one of the agents is seeking his revenge against Jane. Needless to say, none of it works and Doom Patrol is able to save the day.

While inside the Ant Farm, they come in contact with Flex Mentallo. Flex is the guy that is missing from the ad in the comic book that Danny the Street gave to Doom Patrol.

This sets up the next episode titled "Flex Patrol". Just a guess, but I think it's gonna be about Flex Mentallo.

Let us know in the comments if you agree that Cyborg is useless in this story so far. If you disagree, let us know too.

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts.  If they are good, we will use them on the show.  The number is (575) 323-1332.

Phoenix Fan Fusion 2019 preview

Phoenix Fan Fusion 2019 preview

May 10, 2019

Phoenix Fan Fusion is one of our favorite big comic cons to attend. They are considered one of the big 6 comic cons, even with the slight decrease in attendance last year.

Just like the mythical Phoenix, they are rising anew from the ashes of last year. They have a new name now... Phoenix Fan Fusion! They have also stacked their featured guest line up with some pretty impressive names. Jeff Goldblum, Paul Reubens, John Barrowman, George Takei, Elijah Wood, and Billy Dee Williams just to name a few.

Those featured guests will be up on the third floor in the Hall of Heroes. While you are fanboying/fangirling over your favorite guest you can also check out all the fan clubs/cosplay groups there. Star Wars always has a big corner with the 501st, Rebel Legion, R2 Builders Club, and the Mandalorian Mercs all joining together for an unforgettable experience. There will be fan clubs for Judge Dredd, Firefly (Browncoats), Doctor Who, and so many more. You can spend an entire day ( and a load of money) on the third floor.

If panels are your thing, you will find more than you can possibly attend. Most panels take place on the second floor. You name the topic and I'm sure they have a panel for it.

The ground floor is gonna be taken up mostly with food vendors and a few stray panel rooms.

The exhibit hall is down one floor. The convention center is separated on the ground floor by a street, but it is connected underground. The exhibit hall is enormous. You can spend the better part of a day just shopping.

in the lobby area underground there is always some interesting interactive stuff set up. Make sure to look around there before you run into the exhibit hall.

Las year they had a beer garden/food truck area set up on the street between the two convention center sides. That was really a nice perk last year. Being able to step outside under cover of a tent and grab a beer and maybe some tacos was nice.

More and more of the businesses and hotels surrounding the event area are starting to participate in the festivities as well. There will be tons of con specials and off site events.

Best thing is, tickets are readily available. You can get a full event pass for around $85, which is a huge bargain.

If you plan on cosplaying, please read their rules regarding what can and can't be brought into the convention center. Security of the guests and attendees are very important.

You can find us probably in one of the autograph or photo op lines. If you see us, come talk to us. We'd love to hear from you.

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts.  If they are good, we will use them on the show.  The number is (575) 323-1332.

SYFY | HAPPY! Season 2 Episode 5 | Kinda spoilery review

SYFY | HAPPY! Season 2 Episode 5 | Kinda spoilery review

May 5, 2019

This week is mostly Nick running around tripping balls. He is hallucinating like crazy and is walking around with no pants on. He eventually buys some fishnet stockings, which is a disturbing picture in itself.

We also see Sonny Shine beat Dayglow Doug to death with his own golden microphone. We also get a sneak peek at all the blackmail tapes Sonny has in his collection. He has some high powered names in there so it is no wonder he gets what he wants done.

We see Orcus/Scaramucci's story-line get interesting. Orcus is taking over the prison. Scaramucci wants to rid himself of Orcus and begs his cellmate to kill him.

This is definitely not one of our favorite episodes. We are still trying to piece together what exactly the pink "Patrick Starfish" looking creatures are and what they have to do with Sonny. Hoping we find out sooner rather than later.

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts.  If they are good, we will use them on the show.  The number is (575) 323-1332.

DC Universe | Doom Patrol | Frances Patrol | Episode 11 | kinda spoilery review

DC Universe | Doom Patrol | Frances Patrol | Episode 11 | kinda spoilery review

May 3, 2019

This is another in the long line of episodes where we bash Cyborg for being unnecessary to the story. Difference is we are adding Rita to that list now as well. She hasn't really used her powers to help much of anything.

Good news is this isn't another of the "weird Chief's friends list". Larry (Negative Man) and Cliff (Robot Man) finally get closure on their past lives and will hopefully be able to move on.

Larry visits his old boyfriend from before his accident after much coercing from the negative spirit. Come to find out his boyfriend led a very happy life, but always wondered what became of Larry.

Cliff finds out his ex-crew chief (Bump) had raised his daughter after both him and his wife died in the car crash. He had some resentment towards Bump for sleeping with his wife and then going on to raise his daughter. The only thing that his daughter got from him after the crash was a watch. She had the watch engraved and gave it to Bump as a gift. Cliff and his wife died while she was still very young so Bump is the only real father she remembers.

Bump, being a typical Florida redneck, decided to wander into the swamp to encounter a legendary alligator named Frances (hence the name of the episode). Of course the alligator ate Bump, watch and all. She was despondent that she didn't have the watch to remember Bump. Cliff takes it upon himself to find Frances and get the watch back.

(Read this in your best Ted Knight voice) Meanwhile back at the Doom Patrol HQ... Rita notices a man missing from an ad in a comic book that was given to Cyborg by Danny the Street. Rita was able to tell them it was a muscle man character from back in her day. We believe this muscle man is Flex Mentallo who has crossed paths with Doom Patrol in the comics.

Jane and Cyborg track down Flex's family and go to question them. When they get there Cyborg is kidnapped by the Bureau of Normalcy and taken to the Ant Farm.

This was not a bad episode, but it is not our favorite either. The fact that Cliff and Larry finally get closure should help the store progress towards saving the Chief without them lamenting about their sordid pasts.

Do you agree with us about Frances Patrol? Did you really like it and if so why? If you didn't like it tell us why also.

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts.  If they are good, we will use them on the show.  The number is (575) 323-1332.

Avengers End Game movie review and audience reaction at Alamo Drafthouse

Avengers End Game movie review and audience reaction at Alamo Drafthouse

April 26, 2019

Avengers End Game is the culmination of a decade of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. This movie really ties up all the loose ends and gives us a really nice end point.

No matter which Marvel movie is your favorite, you will see reference to it in this movie. Avengers End Game is a fun walk down memory lane of Marvel. The final confrontation is an epic battle for the future of the Marvel Universe.

Patrick and I really enjoyed Avengers End Game. It isn't just us though, everyone we talked to that watched it really loved the movie. We didn't encounter one bad review. Our only warning is don't drink too much soda during the movie cuz you won't want to miss a minute because you have to pee. Even the strongest bladders are tested by this movie.

Do you agree that Avengers End Game gave us a satisfying end to the big Marvel run of movies? Or were you less than thrilled with the movie? Let us know in the comments.

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts.  If they are good, we will use them on the show.  The number is (575) 323-1332.

DC Universe | Doom Patrol | Hair Patrol kinda spoilery review

DC Universe | Doom Patrol | Hair Patrol kinda spoilery review

April 25, 2019

Doom Patrol has no problems bringing on some of the more obscure characters from DC Universe. Episode 10 - Hair Patrol is no exception.

In this episode we are introduced to the Beard Hunter. This guy can track anyone down through space and time by ingesting their essence.... through their beard hair. Just imagine that clump of gook you use Drano to clear out in your bathroom sink. This guy eats that stuff and is able to know everything about you.

The Bureau of Normalcy recruits the Beard Hunter to find the Chief. There are several cut scenes that give us some more background on the Chief. We find out he spends a few years in the frozen wilderness with an ancient tribeswoman. This woman seems to be immortal and has the ability to summon a huge "owlbear" looking creature.

This episode is not one of our favorites, but it is still pretty interesting. It seems like the Doom Patrol is not getting any closer to finding and saving the Chief. It doesn't seem like they are really focusing very hard on the task either. The episodes seem to be just enough to keep us interested until the next week. There better be a big payoff in the season finale or we might not watch season 2. You can string us along for a while, but you eventually need to give us the goods.

Do you agree with us that Doom Patrol seems to be wandering aimlessly? Let us know in the comments.

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts.  If they are good, we will use them on the show.  The number is (575) 323-1332.

SYFY | HAPPY! Season 2 Episode 3 and 4 Review | Kinda spoilery review

SYFY | HAPPY! Season 2 Episode 3 and 4 Review | Kinda spoilery review

April 21, 2019

We got caught up this past week running El Paso Comic Con so we are doing a review of two episodes together in order to get caught up.

Happy! episodes 3 and 4 see a lot of Nick breaking his promises. We also learn how Sonny Shine got his show. Smoothie makes some progress becoming Hailey's friend. But most importantly.... we learn that Sonny Shine is hung like a horse!

Do you agree with us on our assessment of Happy so far? Let us know in the comments.

DC Universe | Doom Patrol | Jane Patrol kinda spoilery review

DC Universe | Doom Patrol | Jane Patrol kinda spoilery review

April 19, 2019

Episode 9 is by far our favorite episode of season 1. This episode is very focused on Crazy Jane's mind. After her Karen persona gets pulled back into the Underground (this is what they call Jane's mind), none of the personalities wants to go to the surface (what they call being the dominant personality). This causes her body to go into a catatonic state.

Robotman is able to enter her mind through Negative Man's energy. Once inside her mind we see that some of the personalities look like Jane and others do not. We are introduced to a few new personalities that haven't gone to the surface. Most of them do not like going to the surface as they find the real world stressful to deal with.

We also find out that the personalities are able to commit suicide by going to the well. One of the personalities, Miranda, had done that. Miranda's station is filled with lots of dark and gory imagery. Jane is at the end of her rope and is going to visit the well to end it all.

Robotman is able to track her down to the well and helps her face the root of all her problems. As a child she was sexually abused by her father. She repressed all those memories until years later she was again sexually abused by a priest at a church. This explains her hatred of the church in the Nurnheim episode.

With Robotman's help, Jane is able to stave off the suicidal tendencies for now. When Jane pops back to the surface we discover the others had some sort of kerfuffle. I imagine we will find out what happened with them in a future episode.

Do you agree with us that this is the best episode so far? Do you also think it should have been aired sooner in the line up? Let us know in the comments below.

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts.  If they are good, we will use them on the show.  The number is (575) 323-1332.
