Episode 116: The Hangover Series and The Fast and the Furious Saga



Chuck and Brad are joined by local rascal Mat Fairchild for this edition of the podcast. After some good-natured joshing, Chuck tells the conclusion to last week's story involving the "Green Jell-o" series of shows and some fallout from that. Chuck unveils a new Brad taunt that Brad totally falls for.
Once that is complete, Chuck and Brad review "The Hangover" series of films. There are plenty of spoilers from the first two, and extremely mild spoilers for the most recent Hangover movie, still in theaters.
Following that is an exhaustive review of the "The Fast and the Furious" saga to this point. All six of the movies are discussed and reviewed at length (although some plot details are a bit fuzzy). Seriously, the plots for all six are discussed, so if you don't want the plots of these movies spoiled for you, watch the movies, THEN listen to this episode.
Also, Chuck and Brad get Mat to shoot milk out of his nose. Coffee milk. Seriously.

Episode 115: The Green Jello Saga, Penn & Teller, and Xbox One



Episode 115 begins with Chuck discussing the events surrounding two recent Senior Discount shows. It is complicated and sad, as many things tend to be. The podcast takes an upturn as the boyz discuss their trip to Connecticut to see a Penn & Teller show (although the circumstances surrounding that are complicated and sad).
From there, the rest of the podcast deals with the announcement of the new console from Microsoft, the Xbox One. What does Chuck think of the "no backwards compatibility" portion of the announcement? Check out the podcast and find out! (But seriously, he hates it.)

Episode 114: You Call That A Blandjob? This Is Plain With Yourself



Episode 114 is the long-awaited "Bland-Off" between Brad and Podcast Guest Wade Bernier!
True to his devious ways, Chuck has come up with a way to determine which of his pals has a blander palate! Chuck invites gal-pal Cindy Montville on as a "normie" and asks Cindy, Wade, and Brad if they would or would not eat different foods. We keep score and determine who has the closed-est mind (and mouth) of the group!
Seriously, we name a bunch of foods and determine whether or not we like it. It's glorious, but be warned...you will get hungry.

Episode 113: Iron Man 3, Video Game Writing, and support among artists




Episode 113 starts out with some blasts from the past/future, as Chuck and Brad talk about the rescheduled Senior Discount show, which was technically Thursday night (May 9), but the podcast was recorded on May 8th. Much time travel merriment is had.
Chuck and Brad discuss the below Web Coulier - a trailer for the upcoming movie "Ender's Game." Brad is cautiously optimistic. Chuck does not like space.
Chuck's movie driplet this week spawns a side conversation - isn't it awesome that Marvel president Kevin Feige can praise DC movies and hope for their success? And that Joss Whedon and JJ Abrams helped with the third act of Iron Man 3?
Once that is done, the boys talk about writing in video games. Brad is particularly enamored with the writing in Bioshock: Infinite, and they discuss games they've played that they really got into the story.
The meat of the podcast, however, is a hearty discussion about their trip to Boston to see Iron Man 3. We learn about Brad's increasing desire to go to sleep early as well as Chuck's passion for filet mignon potato skins. They discuss the movie in general terms before announcing a hearty and healthy spoiler alert and then discussing the film in depth.
The podcast ends with Brad admitting to a failure in his personal life and apologizing for it to Chuck.

Episode 112: Daredevil, Jay & Silent Bob, and the power of music



This week's episode of the Chuck and Brad podcast finds Chuck and Brad joking about new names for body parts. Gross new names. After a Senior Discount update about the upcoming show (May 9th!), the boys talk about the below Web Couliers.
Chuck brings up a movie driplet - the rights to the Daredevil character have reverted back to Marvel Studios - what does that mean going forward? Speculation!
Last week, Chuck and Brad went to see the new animated film Jay and Silent Bob's Super-Groovy Cartoon Movie. They discuss it at length (spoilers abound, I guess), and talk about the Q&A with director Kevin Smith and Producer Jason Mewes that occurred after the showing. The most riveting part of any podcast ever comes next, as the boyz discuss their trip to...a local soup restaurant!!! Wowza! Brad brings up the importance of music in his life recently and the guyzos chit-chat about that for the remainder of this week's episode.
