Episode 217: Appropriate Comedy, Feminism in Jurassic World, and E3 Views


The 217th installment slides into your brain or something this week. After some updates on upcoming shows, the guys discuss the below Web Couliers; well, at least one of them at this time. Chuck provides some movie driplets about the second Guardians of the Galaxy and the second season of Netflix's Daredevil. He throws in an odd story about Jared Leto's Joker from the upcoming Suicide Squad film as well. There's some discussion around The Last of Us 2 for PS4, then the recently announced JK Rowling-written Harry Potter play.
Chuck brings up an article he recently read concerning Amy Schumer's jokes about race. This leads to a deep discussion about what is appropriate in the world of comedy. Many jokes are made. After that, Chuck - who has a masochistic streak to his reading material - brings in another article concerning the allegedly anti-feminist messages of Jurassic World. Given one of the tags for this week's episode is "poor journalism," guess how the guys feel about the author's supposed points?
A few smaller topics follow - a fake plane crash prank done to Paris Hilton divides the guys, and Chuck tries to relay his joy at the Bad Boy reunion on the recent BET Awards. C&B talk about the new Pixar movie "Inside Out" and discuss their enjoyment levels thereof, then close the show by talking about their feelings on the Electronics Entertainment Expo announcements. If you are the guy who sat in front of Brad at the Sony thing, I am sorry I kicked your chair, but still think you're kind of a narrow-minded buffoon.
