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. The three amigos (amigas?) talk about the weird news coming from the Blink-182 camp: did Tom DeLonge leave the band? Is Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio joining?? No one may ever know!
Chuck talks about preorder bonuses for different video games and the guys discuss the pricing model of video games versus other forms of media. This year's Royal Rumble is discussed at length, leading to a dilemma featuring our intrepid heroes...should they go to the re-scheduled Monday Night Raw (on Thursday) or to the previously-scheduled Reel Big Fish/Less Than Jake show?!?!?
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!

Episode 196: Wrestling Rumbles, Microsoft HoloLens, and Our Understanding of the Geneva Conventions


Episode 196 starts out with some shenanigans, as Brad marvels as to how he can think trivial issues at work amuse him now when they would have annoyed him to no end a few short months ago. From there, it's SkyPunch! and Senior Discount updates, as the guys advertise some upcoming shows. After discussion of the below Web Couliers, there's a tiny dose of movie news about "American Sniper," which of course leads to Chuck and Brad discussing the rules of modern warfare. Listening to Brad try an explain the Geneva Conventions (which he barely understands) is high comedy.
More movie news, as the guys talk about the World War Z sequel, the good-natured Superbowl bet between Chris Evans and Chris Pratt, and the reveal of the new snack "Sweet-O's." Chuck laments not being able to have them, as he is once again on a diet. Chuck tells the story of his gift to our friend Ashley and how much she enjoyed it.

The guys talk about their trip to see a local wrestling show - in this case, the XWA Xtreme Rumble. From there, it's a discussion of the Microsoft HoloLens (video below), before finishing this week's episode with a look toward this Sunday's WWE Royal Rumble.
