PCP’s Weekly Dose: Comics Stagnation

25 Apr

Entertainment news with the Pop Culture Podcast crew for the week of April 17 to 24. Sometimes we get silly in these shows but, we try to keep focused during our weekly doses but, things started that way (and for the better). Between the giggles and the snickering fits we do have a full show for you guys. We discuss Jason Statham as a Cheeky Bastard in the new Parker adaptation, Skynet having taken effect on the Playstation Network, Peter Parker is dead, the return of Kenshin and much more. We close out with a discussion on the stagnation of the comics industry. Remember to tune in to episode 024: The Mighty Thor on Wednesday.


PCP Episode 024: The Mighty Thor!

25 Apr

Come! Be seated at at Odin’s table. The ambrosia is sweet and plentiful. Join Loki’s disciples of mischief and immaturity, PCP, as we discuss your favorite hammer-wielding hero since Shaquille O’Neal’s tour de force performance as Steel – the Mighty Thor. We’re a week from the long-anticipated movie and are really boosted…I mean, “moist with anticipation” or something. If thou art unfamiliar with the corresponding texts, this shall be a worthy crash course. LET THE THUNDER ROAR!

PCP’s Weekly Dose: Hanna Review

18 Apr

Entertainment news with the Pop Culture Podcast crew for the week of April 10 to 17. We’re back to the core of the PCP candy bar with the original 3 this session but, in our brand new Wu-Tang personae. But, we’ve got a fully-stocked show for you. We discuss more details about Superman: Man of Steel, the impending premiere of Thor and those dang, dirty apes in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. We also have project Cafe (Wii 2) talks, Capcoms future wares, Swamp Lantern and that talented Donglover kid. We also have Avery’s spoiler-filled review of Hanna (HANNA!). Do not forget to check out this week’s upcoming episode on guilty pleasure movies. If you don’t have nearly as a good time as we did, we guarantee double your money back.

PCP Episode 023: Guilty Pleasure Movies

18 Apr

This one is funny. No lecturing or formality. Just a fun time with bad movies. Good taste, logic, common decency…they all go out the window this time. Yes, we realize we have virtually no sense of shame or guilt. What movies could we possibly feel embarrassed to like? Not Sucker Punch (after all, we do have some credibility). Well, how about Godzilla 2000, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat 2 (yes 2), The Big Hit, Catwoman, Super Mario Brothers, Double Dragon, Warriors of Virtue (fighting kangaroos) and Lost in Space? We wish we could have recorded more because we just had a good time doing it. We’ll just leave the description it at that. Oh, and Surf Ninjas, Surf Ninjas, Surf Ninjas…

PCP Episode 022: British Telly

13 Apr

Today the mates of PCP gather to discuss British programming. We hop in the TARDIS to explore the worlds of Dr. Who. We also discuss things that go bump in the night on Being Human as well as engage in pure, mindless vandalism on MisFits among other shows. It’s gonna be a jolly good time. Oh, and if you have trouble getting it to work, you might wanna try turning it on and off again (that’s right, IT Crowd reference). Cheers…

PCP’s Weekly Dose: Wrestlemania XXVII Review

12 Apr

Entertainment news with the Pop Culture Podcast crew for the week of April 3 to 10. We’ve got the full cast/roster/ensemble/squad/clique/crew/denotation for a group 3 or more individuals brought together with a singular goal in mind. We discuss the passing of legendary director Sidney Lumet, Chronicles of Narnia 4, the demise of Stargate, PSN hackery, butt-holes inside of butt-holes and much more. We also have our review of Wrestlemania 27. Don’t forget to checkout our upcoming post dedicated to British television. It will be a ripping-good time.

PCP Episode 021: Kingdom Hearts

5 Apr

Kingdom Heaaaarts! Now that that’s out of the way, we must reiterate: We do not know anything regarding when Kingdom Hearts 3 is coming out. That being said, we, the PCP heartless, do chronicle the exploits of the Sora in the venerable franchise. A fair warning: we do stay away from the more Disney aspects of the game as it would bring completely off topic (that’s for another episode). Still, the Disney-Final Fantasy hybrid is a worthy candidate for us to drone on about.

PCP’s Weekly Dose: Superman (Secret Origins) Review

4 Apr

Entertainment news with the Pop Culture Podcast crew for the week of March 27 to April 3. This week, we continue the our week in death trend by killing off the segment. Yep, no one died anywhere in the world last week! The streak is over! But, what did happen was more Green Lantern footage, Batman reboot news, Black Panther getting a green card, Wonder Woman costume changes and much more. We also have Josiah’s review Superman: Secret Origins. Don’ forget, this week’s episode is all about Kingdom Hearts (no, we do not know anything about KH3).
