Dick Tracy Review

“Calling Dick Tracy, Calling Dick Tracy!” That’s right, we’re jumping back into the 90’s to re-live the glory that is Warren Beatty’s modern classic, DICK TRACY. Jake + Mitch investigate whether the flick still holds up, or crumbles under the weight of childhood nostalgia. With the likes of Al Pacino, Madonna, Dustin Hoffman, Kathy Bates, and so many more familiar faces—it’s hard to believe a film about a then 60 year old comic strip would garner so much attention, star power, and—yes—Academy Awards. One thing is certain; we’ve never seen a comic-inspired title like it—before, or since. Truly a unicorn of vibrant, noir awesomeness. Also, Jake’s devoted fandom gives him heatstroke, and Mitc

Daredevil Returns - S3, pt. II

Catch our re-cap of the first half of Daredevil S3 here. Turns out the man without fear is pretty worried. With Daredevil Season Three coming to a close, a few glaring questions remain: - Where does it rank in the pantheon of comic book TV? - Will we see Kingpin square-off against Holland in the MCU? - Will Season Four be a thing? Jake + Mitch breakdown the mechanics of the season, and what seems to be a really, really long origin story for Matt Murdock. And was it just them, or was the season finale more than a little underwhelming? Also, Jake goes vegan! So much is happening. Pile-on a plate of leftovers, and give a listen!

Remembering & Celebrating Stan Lee

He lived more in 95 years than any of us could have in hundreds. Stan Lee was the generous and gleeful genius of comics. Credited for crafting more than 300 Comic Book characters, Mr. Lee became the patron saint of the art form and its many iterations. Jake + Mitch spend some time celebrating Spider-Man, Doctor Doom, and more as they assess the legacy of a true, subversive master. The grand master of Silver Age Comics will be remembered for his inherent goodness as anything else. After all, what would popular culture or mainstream entertainment be without the remarkable Stan Lee? Excelsior, good sir! You inspired and educated us to the likes of which no one else had ever seen. Give a listen!

Daredevil Returns - S3

The man without fear is back. Jake + Mitch take a deep, gushing dive into the first half of DAREDEVIL SEASON 3. Why? Because, amidst all the clamor and hot takes, it's nice to appreciate something incredible now-and-then. And as the first half of the season proves, DAREDEVIL earns a place on the short-list of prestige TV. Which is better: - Jessica Jones or Daredevil? - The Hallway Fight or the Uncut Prison Throw-down? - Bullseye or Kingpin? Plus, Jake ventures into the world of themed birthday parties and Mitch gives out "street cred". Lots to celebrate in this one. GIve a listen!
