Episode 251: Wrestlemania Predictions


*NOTE: BRAD HAS BEEN UNKILLED AFTER LAST WEEK'S ERROR*
The 251st entry into the Chuck and Brad library finds us joined by three local hooligans - Brian Decoteaux, Izzy Carmenatty, and Kyle Platt. The dudes are here to talk about wrestling and make some predictions for this year's Wrestlemania. Before they do, however, Brad relates an adorably sad story to the guys, much to their delight. From there, each man makes predictions for Wrestlemania, picking winners or matches as necessary - sometimes with accompanying reasons and fallout. Once they've all had a turn, they talk about fantasy booking, and discussing what they'd "like" to see from this year's event. SPOILER ALERT: This episode is worth it just for Chuck's fantasy booking. A little discussion about favorite Wrestlemanias, wrestlers, and Weezer albums closes out the show.

Episode 250 FIXED: Asinine Repartee, Laura Jane Grace, and Deconstructing Deadpool


*NOTE: WE PUBLISHED THE WRONG EPISODE ORIGINALLY FOR EP 250 (A RE-POST OF LAST WEEK, EP 249). BRAD HAS BEEN KILLED TO PREVENT THIS HAPPENING AGAIN. HERE IS THE RIGHT EPISODE!*
Episode 250 starts with the guys already off on a tangent - and as far as tangents go, this one was a lot of fun. After they get back into normal updates about upcoming events, they chat about the below Web Couliers. From there, Chuck provides some movie driplets about Kurt Russell in the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie, possible R Ratings for some future Fox films, and Hannibal Burress joining a very mainstream project.
After that, Chuck shares a story of personal triumph that will inspire generations to come regarding his success and the "Earthworm Jim" game. There's a smooth, obvious transition to a review of the recent Laura Jane Grace show in Providence. Was it amazing? If so, how amazing was it?
For the second episode in a row, the guys spend a lot of time talking about the success of the new Deadpool movie. How did it get so big? What does that mean for the movie industry? What new intellectual property did Brad come up with? Super fun episode this week!

Episode 249: Mostly About Deadpool


The 249th episode starts with some typical Chuck and Brad updates, then the guys finally address an email they received in early January. They discuss the film "The Babysitters" and the critical ratings thereof. They also throw in some chatter about the below Web Couliers before diving into some media driplets. The gabbers gab about Daniel Bryan's retirement from WWE, news about a possible Saw 8, and some exciting backward compatibility news about Left 4 Dead 2 and Red Dead Redemption - two faves from the Xbox 360 console.
After that, the Deadpool stuff begins. They talk about the origin of the character in the comics, their first encounters with the Merc with a Mouth, and what storylines of his they've enjoyed through the years. They also give their impressions of the new Deadpool movie and consider other actors that could have played the part of Deadpool.
Then Brad brings in one final email and surprises Chuck.

Episode 248: Spy, Knock Knock, and Joke Stealing


Brad botches the opening of episode 248, then botches it again. Hilarity.
After some Brad and S*D updates, the guys talk about their next appearance at the Comedy Connection, coming soon! The guys talk about the below Web Coulier and some other trailers they've loved before Chuck delivers a movie driplet about a space comedy starring podcast favorites Seth Rogen, Bill Hader, and Zack Galifianakis. Sounds awesome! Speaking of movies, the guys recently watched a few - the first, last year's "Spy," is a Paul Feig comedy starring Melissa McCarthy. How much did C&B love it? The second, last year's "Knock Knock," is an Eli Roth thriller starring Melissa McCarthy. How much did C&B love THAT? (Less.)
The rest of the episode concerns the recent allegations that Amy Schumer has stolen jokes. Chuck and Brad don't buy it, and talk about why. They also talk about some jokes of their own that have seeped into pop culture, and about the current comedy landscape that is rife for plunder. Comedy plunder.
