Big Logo

Yes, True Believers,we’ve drunk the Constantine Kool-Aid again.  But before they get to that, Nick (@nickyahogan) and John (@johned970) discuss more of the news and renewals coming out of the the Television Critics Association winter tour.  This includes Gotham‘s renewal and interviews with Stephen Amell and Tom Cavanagh.  In casting news, Chuck finds a new job, young Dexter becomes the young Trickster and Mama Smoak is booking a return trip to Starling City.  They then discuss Agent Carter and the mid-season premiere of Constantine.  The Things That They Found Interesting include pasty, Alabama soul musicians and dating turmoils in 20th and 21st centuries.  And while that should be enough for any show they talk about FX’s The Americans for 6 minutes and ABC’s Galavant for 10.  Because you should.

Episode Breakdown:


News (0:49)  Batman Jim Gordon will continue to prowl for at least another year.  Zach Levi leaves Nerd HQ for more super pastures; some kid we don’t know plays a trick; Charlotte Ross returns.  John calls BS on both Ollie not using the Lazarus Pit and Dr. Wells being the only Reverse Flash.

Marvel’s Agent Carter (11:32) “Time and Tide”

Constantine (21:38) “Saint of Last Resorts (Part 2)”

That Thing That We Found Interesting (30:53)  St. Paul and the Broken Heads are more than just Men Seeking Women

Bonus:  The Americans Minute (38:40) Blow out on how great both seasons of the show are.  Both are available on Amazon Prime and the third season starts next week.

Double Bonus:  Galavant (44:13) Because they’re both musical theatre junkies, Nick and John just had to gush on the how for a bit.

Issue #12–Gotham Returns and Agent Carter Premieres

We’re back, True Believers, just like a few of our shows, thought this issue has taken a lot longer to post than it should have.  Nick (@nickyahogan) and John (@johned970) first discuss the news and renewals coming out of the the Television Critics Association winter tour.  This includes Daredevil hitting the streets, iZombie setting its first course, Supergirl definitely taking flight and Vixen going on the prowl.  In casting news, Spartacus creates a storm, Admiral Adama takes up a new SHIELD, and Hector Salamanca makes a deal with the devil, and perhaps Nightwing gets a new face.  They then discuss the mid season premieres of Gotham and Agent Carter plus a bit on the Ant-Man trailer.  They each end by picking a Thing That They Found Interesting, which really is just a way to talk about all the shows they binge watched over the holidays, which included shows from HBO, FX, Cinemax, The CW, ABC, BBC, Amazon and Netflix.

Episode Breakdown:


News (0:54)  Everything gets a renewal, and we get some more premiere dates.  Supergirl and Vixen come to the fore, and a bunch of favortie faces take new roles.

Gotham (15:25) “Rogues Gallery”

Marvel’s Agent Carter (33:36) “Pilot” & “Bridge and Tunnel”

Ant-Man Trailer (49:22)

That Thing That We Found Interesting (1:05:40)  Let’s binge watch:  Friends, Newsroom, The Americans, Castle, Banshee, The Fall, BoJack Horseman, Mozart in the Jungle, Black Mirror, and The 100.


As Seen on TV–Episode 1–S.H.I.E.L.D.


We’re trying something new, True Believers, and starting our first spin-off podcast:  a brief review of a comic book based on a TV show.  For this first episode, John (@johned970) sinks his teeth into Marvel Comic’s new book S.H.I.E.L.D. from writer Mark Waid. The first issue is penciled by Carlos Pacheco.  This Marvel ongoing comic focuses on Phil Coulson and the shifting team of S.H.I.E.L.D agents he assembles for each new mission.  Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D fans should be pleased with the backup feature by Joe Quesada.
