Episode 6 - The Punisher (1989)

This week the guys fail to do adequate Dolph Lundgren impressions while watching his low-budget 1989 Marvel Comics adaptation The Punisher!

If it makes you cool when a house explodes behind you while you walk away, does the house exploding twice make you doublecool? What if you're inside the exploding house. Is that cool or just unsafe? Also, how sweet was it when that annoying kid got decked? (Pretty sweet.)

Come on God answer us! Why did you send this movie when so many others go unwatched? Is it so we could watch it thinking it was junk but then be totally surprised by how awesome it was when Punisher shot that one guy? Cause if so, thanks man, we owe you a solid.

Episode 5 - Batman (1989)

Gentlemen! Let's broaden our minds!

Pack your grappling hooks in with all your other wonderful toys, because on this episode our dynamic duo dives headfirst into a boiling vat of Tim Burton's Batman!

Did Batman kill more people than the Joker over the course of this movie? Is Vicki Vale only investigating Bruce Wayne because he's constantly assaulting her? Is this sleek, jet-powered Batmobile so perfect as to replace the Condorman car chase in our hearts? And what the heck does "never rub another man's rhubarb" mean anyway?

Find out the answers to most of those (Rhubarb... still no idea.) and more as the guys talk entirely too much about Batman! Relax, enjoy, just whatever you do, don't try to slightly turn your head to the side.

PLUS! We're not going to kill you. We want you to tell all your friends about us. What are we? On facebook!

Editor's Note: We record these weeks in advance, but just before this episode came out, we got word that the Baltimore Batman himself, Leonard Robinson, died in a car accident.

If you haven't heard of him, Leonard built himself a screen-accurate Batman costume and went around to children's hospitals visiting sick kids, and giving away up to $25,000 in Batman toys, t-shirts and comics to them every year, out of his own pocket.

You know those "Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman" memes going around a while back? Leonard Robinson decided he could be Batman. And he made the world a better place for it.

This episode is for Leonard.

Episode 4 - Superman and the Mole Men (1951)

This week the guys exhibit powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men by stepping back to watch the movie that introduced George Reeves' iconic take on the original superhero, 1951's Superman and the Mole Men!

 Shouldn't there be more Superman in this Superman movie? Why is this little girl playing with a bowling ball in bed? Will actors, writers, and artists ever get out from under the shadow of the genre-defining, archetypal George Reeves Superman?

Find out as we dig down deeper than man was meant to delve and break through the crust into the hollow centre of Superman and the Mole Men!

Episode 3 - Spider-Man 2 (2004)

Hey spider-fans! This week the guys somehow compare Sam Raimi's 2004 blockbuster Spider-Man 2 to forgotten Martin Short vehicle Pure Luck and legendary civil rights activist Malcolm X.

Do talking robot arms necessarily have to be good at nuclear physics? Can you make a co-star act by just acting really hard right at them? Will Andrew ever be able to watch Evil Dead 2 again?

Find out as our heroes revisit this movie over ten years after its release, all while trying to maintain some semblance of a normal life!
