The guys recap the recent showing (for friends) of Jurassic Park on the projector in Chuck's backyard. Brad goes through the trivia questions he wrote and reads some of the best answers. Chuck talks a little bit about Memorial Day, then the guys dive into the main course.
Brian Lau had never seen the first three Mad Max movies. Chuck and Brad try to recap the films for Mr. Lau. It does not go smoothly. Hear about the series' changes from 1979's Mad Max through the end of the 1985 film Beyond Thuderdome.
The guys then discuss the 2015 film "Mad Max: Fury Road" and talk about their feelings on the summer blockbuster. After a thorough spoiler-free discussion of the film's merits, the guys banter a little more before signing off for the evening.

Episode 207: Reboot Culture, Guitar Hero Live, and Guilty Pleasures


Episode 207 features New Podcast Pal Nick Mendillo joining Chuck and Brad. The three talk about Nick's background in music and comedy before getting into the plugs for upcoming shows. They talk about the "feminism" Web Coulier below, which segues into a discussion about appropriate language. Speaking of appropriate, have you heard about the "Horny Mom" story from Georgia? Now you have!
Chuck's movie driplets this week include discussion about the Scream TV show, and the casting of Olivia Munn as Psylocke in "X-Men: Apocalypse." We also learn that Mick Foley is going to have a stand-up special produced for the WWE Network, and test the "Find My Phone" function in Google.
Nick brings a little science to the podcast as the guys talk about artificial intelligence. The topic is quickly dismissed, although Brad's robotic personality forces him to suck up to our future overlords a little. Chuck gives a quick review of the movie "Top Five," then Chuck and Brad talk about their trip to the Southcoast Toy & Comic-Con, then Marc Maron's recent appearance in Boston. Chuck talks about Senior Discount playing with Beebs and Her Moneymakers and the fun that was had during that show.

Happier topics include T-Mobile's announcement of Music Freedom, and the free music streaming offered by the carrier. Also, who are some of the characters in the new Mortal Kombat game?

Episode 202: 50 Shades of Grey, Kingsman, and the Parks & Rec Finale


Episode 202 starts out with the traditional mix of nonsense and updates from Chuck and Brad, then they discuss the new Justin Bieber Roast promo (listed below in Web Couliers) and Justin Bieber in general. From there, they delve into some news, as Chuck shares Movie Driplets about Alien 5, an Indiana Jones fan film, Spider-Man's writer, the Walking Dead spin-off, HBO NOW, Tron 3, and more Ghostbusters news.
After movie driplets, Chuck spices things up with some Music Driplets. Wow! There's talk about Less Than Jake or possibly Laura Jane Grace doing entrance music for wrestler Sami Zayn, Tom Delonge's solo record, and moving the universal record release day to Fridays.
Once the driplets are done, C&B revisit an old familiar segment: 60-second reviews. They give brief, to-the-point reviews of the new Spongebob movie, SNL's 40th Anniversay Special, Hot Tub Time Machine 2, Foxcatcher, Mad Max, One Bad Choice, the new Aziz Ansari special, attending a Providence Bruins game, and the book The Martian.

Chuck and Brad talk about an event they recently attended at Brad's church, then about the announcement of Rock Band 4. They also discuss seeing the movie Kingsman in a spoiler-free manner. They briefly talk about Brad's involvement in a "Roast" and tiptoe around feelings as they do. (If you listen, you can hear the I'm-tired-grumpiness creep in to my voice.)

Episode 197: Preorder Bonuses, Royal Rumble, and Our Blizzard Conundrum


In a slightly-earlier-than-planned episode, the guys stay toasty warm during a Nor'easter by talking with the sizzling Gina Mastrostefano! Chuck kicks things off with some movie news - Ryan Reynolds talks about Deadpool, Adam Sandler's Netflix film, and the upcoming Dodge and Twist.

Chuck talks about preorder bonuses for different video games and the guys discuss the pricing model of video games versus other forms of media.

Once that issue is (for the moment) solved, Brad talks about the guilt he feels from almost every situation in his life. A quick chat about their abominable blizzard prep, and there you have it...episode 197!
