Fourcast! 74: Buffy and the Boys

January 31st, 2011 Posted by david brothers

-Esther reads Joss Whedon’s Buffy!
-I read Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s The Boys!
-Both series can be massively unsatisfying.
-They can also be very entertaining.
-So we’re talking about examples of both, and why the downsides sometimes outweigh the upsides.

Fourcast! 73: Batgirl vs Robin

January 24th, 2011 Posted by david brothers

-Let’s you and him fight!
-We’re talking about Batgirl vs Robin
-More specifically, Batgirl 17, featuring words by Bryan Q Miller and Pere Perez
-I’ve been critical of people writing Damian Wayne as too mature for his age or just flat out poorly
-This issue was pretty straight, though
-Esther agrees, and places the Damian/Stephanie relationship in the context of how Batgirl and Robin have interacted in the past.
-6th Sense’s 4a.m. Instrumental for the theme music.

Fourcast! 69: French Existentialism Comix

December 6th, 2010 Posted by david brothers

-This is the best cold open ever.
-We start with a summary of Jean-Paul Sarte’s No Exit to kick things off.
-We argue over the ethics and logistics of Johnny Cash’s “I Shot A Man In Reno.”
-It gets surprisingly complex.
-Then we get to the point!
-This week’s show is about superheroes, settings, and the way they fit together.
-Sometimes the setting is a help to the hero, sometimes it’s a hindrance.
-Esther sums it up as “Let the hero fit the setting.”
-What heroes work well in certain genres?
-What heroes don’t work well in other genres?
-True story: a couple times during this podcast, my sink made noises like the blog was coming out of it.
-This made both of us go :O and turn our heads toward my kitchen.
-There was nothing in the sink, though, which I actually found more troubling than the noise itself.
-Regardless, I edited most of that stuff out, but maybe if you listen closely, you’ll get lucky.
-Maybe it’s due to the Ghostbusters II-esque bubbling, you can consider this the revenge of the Digressioncast.
-6th Sense’s 4a.m. Instrumental for the theme music.
-See you, space cowboy!

Fourcast! 68: What’s It All About

November 29th, 2010 Posted by david brothers

-Ever disagree with someone and be like, “Wow, [that idea] is totally way off kilter and crazy!”
-I totally thought that when Esther wrote this post in response to a lightly NSFW post I wrote about Flex Mentallo and supersex.
-Why not do a podcast about our competing and almost definitely irreconcilable views on superheroes?
-So, we’re hashing it out on wax, and Esther realizes it before I do…
-But we don’t disagree very much at all, do we?
-Like I ever let something like that stop an argument.
-Regardless, I’m inflicting this conversation on you, dearest reader, so click play and tune in.
-6th Sense’s 4a.m. Instrumental for the theme music.

Fourcast! 67: The Bat’s Back

November 22nd, 2010 Posted by david brothers

-It’s been a long time, we shouldn’t have left you
-Without a Batman-focused, digression filled Fourcast! to step to
-Grant Morrison’s big Batman arc is done! The second phase of it, anyway.
-Good a time as any to catch up on the franchise and see where we’re at.
-Recorded this one the weekend before Batman Inc dropped, if you were wondering.
-You know the drill. Put it on your iPod and listen.
-6th Sense’s 4a.m. Instrumental for the theme music.

Fourcast! 65: Apocalypse

October 11th, 2010 Posted by david brothers

-Movie review!
-Superman/Batman: Apocalypse is out.
-It’s an adaptation of Jeph Loeb and Michael Turner’s Superman/Batman, Vol. 2: Supergirl.
-Overall? We both think it was a mixed bag.
-Too short for what it was trying to do, too full of stuff to have anything but problematic pacing and editing.
-There were great bits (the last fight)
-There were awful bits (Lashina’s brand new backless costume)
-But yeah, 50/50 over here.
-6th Sense’s 4a.m. Instrumental for the theme music.
-See you, space cowboy!
