Episode 78 – It’s Not Crude, It’s Savage

Episode 78 – It’s Not Crude, It’s Savage

Week in Geek: Inspired by last week, Andrew starts watching Cowboy Bebop while Dan checks out the new sketchbook by one of his favorite working artists, Giannis Milonogiannis, called Never Be Game Over.

Sub Vs. Dub: Dan and Andrew tackle what is possibly a moot issue in the world of digital home video and media, but they still find the issues underpinning the perennial debate over which is a better experience: subtitled anime versus English dubbed versions.

Toshiro Mifune: Despite being a bit of older news, Andrew and Dan discuss the importance of Hollywood recognizing the contributions of Toshiro Mifune to not only Japanese cinema but American (and worldwide) cinema as well.

Episode 77 – That’s Not A Euphemism

SPOILER ALERT: Dan and Andrew go into detail about the plot of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in this episode. So, if you haven’t seen it, please refrain from listening. You have been notified.

The new year is brought in an…interesting…fashion. Base humor and extended conversations are but a small step into 2016!

Week in Geek: The boys play some catch up as Andrew plays Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Dan watches Cowboy Bebop.

The Force Awakens A Lot of Opinions: The movie that caught the world’s imagination is under the lens this week, though both Dan and Andrew come to Star Wars: The Force Awakens from very different places with very different attitudes. It is a movie that has been universally praised but severely dissected among the fandom. Andrew and Dan dissect the schism as well as offer bits of their own insights into this, overall, fun movie.
