ABOUT THIS EPISODE

A day late and a dollar short, Dearly Debated is back with our hot takes from January 2021. Greg shoots mushroom people, Ashley flaunts her VHS player, Greg reads too many comics, and Nathanael is reading adorable manga.

I think your uncle would be proud ofyou leaving your home to come help us that's hard. It wasn't that hard.Really, you didn't leave behind any one you cared about. Well, I did have agirlfriend. May that gloomy girl who sighs a lotyeah every one in the fire nation thinks I'ma traitor. I couldn't drag her into it. My first girlfriend turned into themoon. That's rough bunny. Welcome to yearly debate is the showwhere your intil to opinion. Even if it's wrong, I'm your boy primary host.I say that because I know n who had I these things, I'm not don't get cokain.Let me that should be on the sun for it, Daniel Serious Levinson. With me in the studio in the ValerieLevinson Studio, I am Gregg Miller, friends Gand joining us virtually are, I amAshley. I love feeling feelings Thomas, but I'm Jason were way too. Many comicDane so today we're doing a special,hopefully recurring episode where we're just going to talk about what we'vebeen eating out over in the previous month, yeah. So just going to kind ofgo around the table and talk about what we've been watching, whether old or old,new or new new, and how it's been hitting US yeah. So why don't we startand it'll be a little. I just say I affamato a little weird for me becauseJanuary for me was kind of a media, so y media break in general. So I reallydidn't consume a whole lot of media or a much much less media than I usuallydo. But I do have a couple of things to talk about, so why don't we start withD, Our special guest, Dandin Bega Beak you? What have you been watching inJanuary? What did you? What did you watch or play or read in January Otaye,so t I like Sitcom and that had a those who don't know D is myroommate. So most things that I get into I broke yeah. It was a groupactivity, yes and a mute. What have you been gin,Gosh well January was an interesting month because I had coved. So for tendays I got a real deep like like. I normally watch T V showsand movies and yea have a heck of a time, but I got you know, that's all Ihad to do for he is so I would say the thing that stuck out the morals to act,a video and you guys have all been hearing about it- that an talk about aThoma show which is the last of us. I finished the second game. I played thefirst one and was blows making that into a movie Yep we who is Rory's, it'snot at network, it's a blax or making that into a movie. They just Task Pike,Pascal as Joe, really rip interesting, not spoiler, ler, but ever okay, wellspoiler for the future movie, a weakening out the soul. Be that Iapologize, but I played the first game: Let's see a year about a year and a half ago movetwo years ago, and it was really good it, like it kindof like blew me away as far as like what a game could be. The storyline was you know much more compelling and just characters are bell betterthan most movies. I'd watched and TV shows on top of out the game play isextremely intriguing to go along with it. So I feel, like you, can kind ofbreak move the games into so categories where it's like. This is coolly a storygame or I'm playing it just to kind of get through the mode to see whathappens at the end like, like. I consider the God of war games similarto that where you kind of just button mashing and then you're like this is areally interesting story stories. Great. The game is not very intriguing an yougames where it's like. I play the sport game and there's not really much astory attached to it wet. It is kind of had poof elements that the game playwas Super Fun. I mean it was like, like a stealthy into the world type thing oryou're, fashioning weapons together from sticks, you find and loose chainsyou're finding in drawers and, and so it's really cool resourceful, but alsothe story, like I says, really repelling. So I get to the first onelike I said a couple years ago and I'm like man, I cannot wait for the secondone. The second one came out and I just...

...been waiting like now. I'm in me sometime, because I once I start this and I I want to put it down, so he would golike a poet, and so I start this thing, and it is just a poll. Dozer of an emotional isnot even a roller coaster. This is a bulloo. It just hits you so hard spoilers, but yeah. It's just a verytragic story, definitely not on the caliber of thefirst game, to where I think the first game. The story like the direction just madea whole lot of sense in to where again, it's always harder to do. SEQUELS,because you're dealing with characters that have been developed, so they needto behave in the ways that make sense to the characters themselves and notjust like hey. We need somebody to go and do this. So let's have this persongoing to do that and then everybody's like well. That person would have nevergone and done that while we already know this character for all games, soit's hugely. It's hugely argued about right now is very APOL. Rising gamelike everybody is like torn in part like into because that is huge.Following now half of the people real, like it happen, people really don'tlike it. It's definitely got a lot of. You know questionable things. It wasvery fun to play. The game play is very similar. Yes, some really questionablestory directions or it had to play the protagonist a well take us, the man,tack. Antigon, sorry well, is a any place, an antagonist which kind ofonsartain us at some point and so you're just kind of confused. Yourliterally fighting the character you've been playing as at the end as a boss,petal and you're like I don't want to win, because I like the character, I'mfighting, but you have to do it and then you're done in your back to theother character. You want to go back and fight the antagonist, you have itto the lines and so anyways, it's just emotionally draining, because it's verydeals with a lot very serious things, and you know it's way: Bory and yeah.What I found interesting- and this is I'm going to stay to say this with ousemoiling like you get to the very, very, very, very, very end, and then thecharacter makes it is. It feels like something where you should have gottento make the decision that the character makes at the Perry very and right. Sothat was a big. You know argument. There's there's so was actually shockthat they didn't make that I decision that you as a place. Several points ofargument are that you're playing in the second game as the first game just giveyou a little bit of point of reference is you're playing, is two charactersJoel and this girl that he is kind of ferrying across the United States to aseparate location of his encampment. Her name is bell and whole things atcheese, immunes, they're trying to take her to this place. They could test herto see if they can make a vaccine, it's kind of a Zombi, a popular sit. Theyjust cast Bella Ramsey as ellie or on those literally on a Mormon, and Isokay yeah the Lady of Bear Island yeah, that's good, so anyways and the wholeturning point of the first game, which I will spoil because it's announcedforever and Gaite the big twist, like so kind of twist at the end. Yes, it sonow is that he takes her there and they're like hey. Now we got her we'regoing to make a year, but work that I and throughout the game, he's kind of areally rugged Guy Joel, but these learns to love again by the end of thegame, because at the beginning you see his daughter die and he's really bornup by this and kind of keeps himself from attaching himself to anything. Butby the end he never really loves this girl- and you know, he's like a father,doer and so he's sitting there with his dilemma and then eventually just says:No, you can't do that and they say. Well, you can't stop us and he's forcedto kill them to take her sorry. What does he say? He says Yean, so that's hethat's the big! That's the big! You know, I guess Moldoeen the first gameand that leads into the second game, where you're playing now is Ellie andyou you and Joel are a part of this village and Jackson, and it's a reallynice place would be damn your but you're, slowly, starting to discoverthat, like there's a divide between the two Elian Joel, because he hasn't beenup front with her about what happened when he took her, she just woke up andhe said hey it. It turns out that they found a bunch of people with years. Soit wasn't anything that special on this ransom test. It didn't work as opposedto telling her that he took her because he loves her. So she ends up finding that out and isreally upset and anyways the whole. The whole point of the game is thatsomebody, somebody comes and does somely really mean Ellis, so Elie'strying to get ribbons. The whole game is Nele's trying to get revenge on thisperson, and then it has you play as that person for half of the game, whichis bazars of what the move most people off, because here we've been Elli for agame and a half be lover, and now we're like who'll screw this other person,I'm not emotionally attached this one at all. You can do your best to try toget me attached, but she's, not even that compelling of a character and thenby the very end. Yes, LE makes a decision to not get revenge on thisperson after essentially throwing away our entire life to do so time and timeagain it she had many chances to be like okay, and now the game is over,because we've chosen not due he's like I'm going to go back is like well nowthe game. No, I'm going to go back, oh my gosh and then like I it. Finally atBegin, she's like about to and she's like Nope, not going dude, and so thelike. The online is understandably just...

...kind of like what am I. What am I playing like? Ivery very small member of the audience were like I would have done everythinglike they did it like. You, just lost so many people, because you made somany questionable decisions. It's like by the end. You couldn't have very manypeople at home, be like this is exactly how I would have played right. Yeah sohas a long ran about something that nobody else can relate to. So I'm sorry,so we can get to a different tomic, but that kind of consumed all of myemotional energy for media. I guess in January it was the biggest thing againlike Kyu said: We've been into some TV shows grubs and some other things if wecircle back to the MEIC and mentions to the other ones, but that's for sure thebiggest one. I could talk about it all day long, but I hear that that's kindof the via general consensus of anyone playing the last of us is. I wasemotionally spent for days after it really was. I I east I'm a comotionretro Gamer, but whenever I get around to playing whatever system I can playthe last of us on I'll definitely be playing that one, because I I've heardso many really great things about the story pot and the tent in so yeah. I'm I'm on the X box had well jump into the last of US yeah, butwhat I've basically is what I understand like stone's, been makingreally cinematic game cranch. As for a while. Well it's the knotty dog yeah. That's well so note do a note.Dogs has been doing that for a while because they did well. Nobody likeinitially started with just well. I W A T with Jack Dexter right, yeah, axentreally fun, but now they did uncharted yeah, uncharged, yeah andthose as were the kind of they were like he make Indiana Jones the moviethe game. That's basically what in charge one to before and then when theydo. Last os they're like to make a more gritty yeah and it really is very pretty yeahI like as mature as you did. Yeah now on charted is gethite. He can'tpossibly be paying like Nathan. Drake is, and he took a day he's so smallthough may ca drink is like he looks like a football player, I mean he isdetestin flexibility to be ating. How long is like he's ten that will notwork? I'm sorry! I was Hesnaes one on, but that is a bad casting. There's apicture of him in Cap. I guess okay, I welcome to a way have you guys a coucal,Irelan, Pillian Nathan, Pillian? Yes, Nathan, Pillian is it's like fifteentwenty minutes long and it's a is okay yeah. He can be a young mathon drink, athin, that's what they're gone for. He looks it's just like a Nathan Daypo. I peopleof the yeah yeah it we if it's a pretty cool in the fourth, when they start alot with it yeah this childhood. I think if you other ones, they may evenhelp someone go his childhood, but he's obviously a fun character, but it is, Ithink, in movie form, it it'll feel a lot like Indiana Jones, where it's Imean it's kind of like the very fun games I played when I played the firstlast of us. I was like okay. I need to pay an pain by notion because I amazingso I play you all all the uncharted they're, not as gripping and emotional.Obviously, I probably watched it yeah order if it's, because I think if Iplayed play the last of us after I might have- did a little better likethis is good because I tapp so much out of you deals with such heavy things.That you're, like I feel like I'm watching a cartoon now like I'm playinguncharted and I might not have been able to give it the story enough credit,but the fourth one has has a little more depth to it. where it's like himdealing with his brother too, but yeah, I felt like they were ratherreally like a mention in the first, a US in jail. But no, I think that Nautius this has done a goodjob of the cinematic type games. They've been coming. That way likeyou're, saying Jason, I suppose so I played I get. I told you I played likethe first settlement in last of us. I don't know I just I just stoppedplaying it and it wasn't because it was bad. It was just like I started buyingit and then I went and did something else yeah, but in exciting playsinrelated news all of King Practis. Coming to PIC interesting and any timeI hear something, a game that I really love that was console books have comingto C. I get really excited because P C means mods, and that's just the bet,I'm N. I want. I need blood more to come to pic so bad. Just so I can bemode and I can play it like with random miners and all the different thingsthat come with with having a healthy Bo, and that's it that to me, that's whatgives p CD of everything else as the idea that Oh here's, this game, thatI've beaten you know up place down. Where is Lukas right way? Side like tenweeks a Sunday I can play with my eyes clothes when he the mind that makes itcompletely fresh, again or and somethin or add something new like a challege orsome new items or any way, player, game...

...and stuff like that, they someone putsomeone turned dark souls pick to the first person shooter, they put guns inthe game, they put guns in darkles, and so you get like a bunch of Crosse Bulls.You were like rapid fire, propices, and so people like run it in first personwith the machine, gun or stuff like stan o like well, Ibought I got kingdom hearts wanted to do for my ps two. Maybe I shouldfinally start playing through this. So I oh they're fun. They appreciate isconversation. Yeah yeah T T, that's that's what I think so the funny they're really good or both a game. I think you would it'slike totally if you're Allen Yeah an a Ma one on to our excellent Games wherethe story starts from it starts from a point of you know: Sacaran Disney askbut comprehensible and slowly ships to this absolute bonkas convoluted. Nobodycan follow. What's going on and then per mark three, the plot wasn'tabsolute mess. It was a fun game. Don't get me wrong? I thought it was fun butfolly if the plot wasn't one of the stupidest things I ever seen in my lifeand then like the stuff you do with the Disney world is absolutely nothing likeliterally nothing happens, you go through like ten or fifteen worlds orwhatever, and none of it means anything. The only story happens right in thebeginning and right at the end, and that's the only stuff that actuallyhappens relevant the plot and the highlight the absolute peak of themonstrosity of that is. The plot is when they go to frozen world, and Ithink I've mentioned this. They go to a frozen world right. You try to explainthis to me on time, like comically you're, like hey, listen, I'm going totry to explain this and by the end you won't know what I'm talking about. I'mlike Oh yeah. No, I should you. I should be the video of the guy, a guy.I did a cartoon trying to explain what happening to mark in thirty minutes andit's really hard to follow because it's just it's all over the place, but no so they go to prosen world rightand there you know you've like fighting to the mountain. As you get to themountain and as you get to this mountain stora and Donna Mabouf see also runningup and Elsa starts singing, let it go and she soon let it go, but she'sactually seeing the song so clearly she's like this really happened. Shesaying this. She said a real song instruments, matically bird out ofnowhere. This happened, but it was like randomly cut back to Sora and Dominigooping, watching her and saying that girl looks sad, I'm like who looked at this and thoughtthat it goes trough the entire song and just random put up. We should go cheerher up whome of the stuff. I don't understand how it got past qualitytesting just like mind. I'm sitting, I literally droppedmy control. I was like that. Did that just happen, or was that a fever grinmy head, because I literally I took a nap today and had a dream of payingOllie hockey with joke here. So go figure it back like it. It was this aEverye. He took a shot on a Gol, but some o ego like wait a minute. No, it's funny. I've never gotten much into the king of heartsgames and I feel like I can get kind of what you're saying just by looking atthe cover. Sometimes I'm like this seems I could be a dempster fire, so itjust seems like a thin is a bad thing is wanted to it's like somehow likefifty of them. The thing about it is on to it's like it's flocky, but it'severing, but in three it's just stupid and you're like, and it might bebecause there was such a long gap of tween games, and this is a arline based.No, no. This is an action r bag, an so you're. Actually, okay, yeah is you'reactually like in it who win it. But man is the duntanat Os the kid from thisextensive Rahel Yeah? He does the voice o Ora. Yes and Oh boy. I was a better actor than that man andthat's not his fault. He's my dog he's just it's like the most atrociouslywritten, I'm like a professional adult person, got paid real money to writethe style on. It's literally like if you ever had a young child like underten years old. Tell you a story where kind of just rambles and there's nofriends of logic. That's what it feels like like someone, someone was like I'm! I don't want to do work today, heylittle Jimmy. You write the story for me. Oh sure, dad what's happening my soI just met Elsa Wow. He S A, she looks sad yeah, it's great kid, that's GreatMarine! She looks so it's bad, it's real bad! It's really isthis. Is this on car with I hate sand, it's Corpus and hot itgets everywhere. It is but the way it's...

...just like it's in a way. That's notAmerican. The way that you're like it's fun, to say because it's so stupid,it's more like I want to. I want to shoot this person I need to. I need to take the story nowschool and educate them, how to speak English good well, so you can't read that kingdomart for and they will be- and the thing is so munificent is like a main bill inthe first one, a yeah, so malific is like one of the mainbills in the first one, then starting on the second one. She she picks upheat from for making. No S like the big burly Pega right, he's like the antimachus to warrior tomake he's nickannoose like a big bully guy did rain. What is funny, is he actually fictionor I'm sorry, that's these kind of nemesisyeah, yeah yeah. Is that what you said yeah a use that was more positis like an angry,but so he's a villain and all the he likeall the Micky Games he's, but he seems up with maleficentand Malimba just like. Oh, we need to go here and we'll find somebody I'll beuseful and she's. Always there like a little bit too late, he's like wellwhatever and then like warps away like was it you have done nothing anything tyou go home, it was a you got. You got your ass wit in the first one go home,it's just like the first one. She was actually doingsomething and none of the other ones. Is She actually doing something likeSans Penon these visions and she clearly go. I think they're setting herup to be the big Gil and the worst part is spoilers for he march three, thevillain at the very end, the good. The Ghost of the Good Guy Teacher, like me,magically, shows up and just like, hey buddy, let's go to heaven and back islike okay, that they do like what that's it. It sounds like terrible e. it's reallyfun to play. That's the thing. It's really fun to play to the game. Plays agame play you so, okay, but boy. This is my story O and I was trying not toskip put sis the first time I played poet I was like. I really know what itis so bad eh, that's not what you've been paying thismole you just want to rent. No, I just know what I saw is that king dohard is coming to BEC and I'm going on. I A hundred percent. He is keeping outof it. This is true, is fair game yeah say say that that definitely qualifiesas Geeking out. So I hate Napanee is Jason Coming through yeah yeah, so youguys were like talking at the same time, and I did he. Yea Jason started to talkand he d kind of pounce in it out a couple times and I think trying in astep, let me are also Congo. Let me switch my inner up. Like my Araby allcounts. It doesn't make sense all right right, right, Jasonjusen, you won't.You go ahead since I know you've got a jump sooner than me. So, oh well, I, like many, many people have beenwatching Wan Division, which I don't know if I want to get into too muchgood. I say one division is also on my list as well. So I have not watchedtoday's episode, though so I have not. I I haven't either o other. My motheris out of town and I will watch it without her. You D, that's something.We've been eating over, and so I do want to talk about that like a littlebit just like. So I want t talk about one division,your investing so yeah, Jason Par away so like leading up into that able atretenaient back to reading some of the comics end of I feel, like we'reinspirations Goin, to show look ahead of time and then like during been reading. Rereading a comic calledjust called division by Tom King with excellent, and I kind of feel like isit's one of the ones that I on desk writing wanted it and hebarely have to start in at all. But a basically the idea behind it is. Thevision decides that he would like to do something a little bit different and hebuilds himself a sympaty family. He literally build so a white robot teenages hits hm...

...e into the suburb them sing to be normal, like normalhumans, and then it starts off kind of like one of it does or and like thepicture thing and then there's a line of dialogue at the end of the birth inyou like. Oh, this is good that it kind of moves on from there but highly recommended, especially ifpeople are have been enjoying want of it, and I want a little bit more but also reading up on a re red houseof him, which is a comic in which Scala, which that's the this, the one aboutthe guy who makes the really good pancake right. No, no, no! That's international house of pancakes O thatsounds way dirtier than I sounds like a strip clot. Okay, that's my that's! My s next magic,my Leah House of them how some man takes Jason, who did you say, was the authoron the Vision that series that you've mentioned Tom King? Thank you I'mwriting that down. What did you say and then I I reasor, while back a Prime Michael Bendis, which has discoved rewriting realityand a that's another one. I probably goingto reread adventures this see to the also by Peniscola, which kind of having some some of us a e. Theyexplain how she still has her power so that how or powers came from thereality stone or remind stone or whatever, and that is no longer anexist. I know the comics it's because she make you to his daughter right yeah. He just has powers. Well, it wasit wasn't. They can't really agree on the rites it's Goin T was. I think the rule wasthat they could not say the word mutant in any Disney marvel film and now well now that neons marble,I don't I mean if you've seen the last week's episode I mean you know, some lines are beingcross. Yeah E T is happening. Also, I don't care.This is wonderful yeah. I'm convinced that this is there that this and wonderfound people. We are solder and all the all of the series that they're doingare preparing us for doctor stranges multiples of madness. Were there goingto be like and we can do whatever we want. Now we cause to come out first,how like C, is doing, but without actually doing it because DC I meanthey had the cross over on infinite earths or price on the peterbirds s like they did do that, but I feellike they because they think they isolated all their different, like themovies are one time e shows the one tipene this in that together were morefullie. It's all the same in well. They've actually said that onedivision, the next Piter Man Babe and talk to strange hate, verse, O Badness,are all tied to go yeah so because spider man park all they talked aboutthe er a little bit. Okay, there's an idea! That's out here we're going tomake it into a fake out, but then we're really going to we're going to do right,right, right and so I've been really really enjoying an division, because,first of all, it's very different from basically everything else, marvels tone.You know it is me most. I like dark to strange and the first and an e like we're going todo some some very different things right. It's not it's! Not just going tobe your typical marvel movie, which they did get pretty orelay right. I think it's been really interesting.He's been a very breath of perjure its war, a okay they consulted with DickMan tit and a. i read, no idea that n game is the Pines, the high cosin film.All Time- and I told him he was like. Oh that's weatherbold. He is a gym,he's so precious, so so they consulted at the Banda toget the. I I think the first two episodes were filmed by this partiallyfilled the front of a light of live audience. Yeah. Really, yes, okay. Ididn't know that. I we because I knew the first. The first episode is totallya parody on tick in it and then the second one is o Wich Yeah. It's beeninteresting right because there it's nine episodes right, we're going tokind of go a jumping a decade, every episode, yeah, so they're going to getup pretty odds in the thenten to two thousand and twenty and then to nowyeah y. So it's really treated. If...

...that's there going to continue the kindof jumping to the show, Junky, decave and terms of style, every episode, I it's been really regood, but there was one line. I don't want to spoil anything with this. Aline in the show where the like universe, Dayas, Sitcom and I looked atmy family- was like detent Bain, Greena himself to the universe. I missed that one. I tweeted that, but nobody got it. I really love that mine, where theEiresione like it's just a working theory. Yeah I mean that's, did nat, I love my love, be brot and Darcy andJimmy Woo and you the he so good. Oh my gosh away, maybe tionesty. First allhe's great in that ire movie, Oh yeah I need to. I is that movie. I fell asleeplike right before, like the last twenty minutes of the, but you saw the ceonosascenes right, yeah, Oh yeah. Now I saw that he's wonderful people. People really want them to likeus, be on now with like Darcy and a just being like the x files of theHarper. Whenever I feel this, because I athis name Tsanda Part Rendar, I don'tthink any any more real part I can get is good by me s pesents a really goodway to describe it. Well, no! Well, you well! You do because you don't like the office, youprobably didn't at the office. Okay, so so there's a there's a cold even thatthat so as that person as that for a second actually, so I haven't watchedthat much of the Hobos, but even that time I came over. I went over to Greg'shouse and they were watching them to the office. It I finished it. It waslike in the fit season or whatever, and I hate it. I was like no even even thelater seasons, it still the exactin stuff. I hate okay, well, that that'sfair but but there's a cold open where Jim pulls a prank on White, Jim andPampas Frans white to make white think that Jim has been agin the entirer time.Oh, I think I saw like a I yeah they get they get to come in to play.Jim is just play by Randal Partway, not seing, ICASTIC on the cake is that hekisses he's just fire Pam and I uses hismiyage off of his desk and it's a picture of like other hand, Az guy and like their Chinese. I thething for me like watching a man in the lost, but when do I know who this guyis, he is so familiar. Why do I know and and like I'm like, covertlychecking imbinge movie theaters like a its Asian Jim Helper? Oh, I also love that he did the that he dida little car trick, Yeah Yeah. That was a nice, as that wasthe best that, like he could like without his card like he was, he wasdoing the slight of hand that, like that such like a ten time yeah andthat's one of the things I've really really really loved about an e bises.The small nods, not just be the Omahas to sit, comes through the ages, which Ithink is wonderful, but but also the the the subtle things.The little things that hits they've been dropping about the Marvel Universeis a whole. It's there's, like you, know, big ones, but there's also moresubtle ones. It's just been really really fun to watch and I'm on the NSElike, Oh, what's going to happen next and that now I'm of the opinion like ifmarlow decided to not do movies and just in mini series, I think I'd beokay with that, because this is not excellent. Now, of course, this is thefirst one, so we have to see how the Ol on tar out, but you know I really wantto see Loki. I really want to see pole witer soldier so and it wasn't meant to be fir to whichI think is part of why people are so like Werdet out by it were supposed toget t topping winter full to be like the predition marvel thing and then Oneof vision as I at like the weird experiment- and it definitely wasn't supposed to belike over a year since you had any content from them before you. You KnowWatch on thousand nine hundred and fifty sitcoms for the first time yeahright, but what I think is what I think that what I'm really happy about it is that peoplelove it, and so I'm hoping Disney looks at this and says: Oh O, we can do moreexperimental things and people will buy...

...it. They will consume it so Tis. Hecould say that about anything. Let's be, but but I I ses is really important because itwas so experimental. It opens the door for Kevin Vegi to be like hey. Thisworked really well now we could do even a because they're doing like moon,night and and they're kind of opening the door to and bloke and they'reopening the door to a lot of more experimental. Weird sorter run things.I think this an relyea yeah well well and Jusan. I don't want to interruptbecause I know you may have more things to say about one division, but I havesome stuff to add about. One is yeah girl for well, so what I love so, as a you know, the the resident retro pileof the Group- I am totally adoring all of the old Sitcom spin off, because Ihear because I've watched a lot of those,but I think my favorite this past episode is that it was a hybrid of fullHouse and Man Yeah and that he, the fact that the theme song was so veryclose like within, like an inch of the family tie theme song, that I couldalmost sing along Wi with the original family. Time theme, but not quite likeI was a man, is that not thematic of everything that is occurring in this inthis show is something is off just a bit and like, and you can't quite placeit in division's, Hair. Paul dety is just wonderful he's likeand listen to Alton and, like I have the only other thing I've ever seen.Elisabeth Olten, besides, like the Avenger stops, is God Zola and like,and I and like honestly, like that First Got Zion movie. I fall asleepevery time. I part of watch it and it's not because I'm disinterested inGodzilla, it's like it just it's so slow, but but I like with this, I'm just likeman, she is delarise and she's hysterical and then, like I, you knowafter I was like wait. A second she's Mary, Kate, nashly little sister andshe was on a full house like spoof. That's hysterical, yeah, there's a lot of there's a lot oflire. I also appreciate at that during the first episode, people life whathappened to her accents and that's totally explained the like the that'stotally explained: Yeah, that's legit. I think a bounce back off one of the thingsthat you said about it just being just a little bit off. I think that's whatmakes it so effective is like classic television is kind of like like thecomfort food of like TV. For me you know I grew up watching a lot of those to it.The a thing that you go to just to like destress gone, wholesome and all that kind ofstuff. So when they hear off of that, even if it's just thirty seconds at no the first episode,it's very effective without the very much and just feeling that little bitof Fenson in that rait's, almost creepy at a it, so great, yeah and- and one of the things I like isthe characters are asking the questions that we are asking so the characters ae are responding to what's going on in a way that feels very realistic they'relike wait a minute. I thought this was the case. So let's go so it's so there.The mystery is unfolding for the characters in the show as in unfoldingfor us, and I think that always works very well when, when the charactersthat you're watching learn at the same pace that you do like in like in vimenlike as you as you cover things, you're uncovering them as well share the sameconnection that he is, and so it providing better leak between you andthe first on you're watching and not just the characters in the do,but the car king O, so in the go right right right. It's super interesting. Ohmajor revelations, I think they did a really good job like keeping it on thehook like o. what's going on, there's no thin sinister, what's going onwhat's going on and then they've kind of open it up and they're still likethey open up a lot in the last episode, but they's still like there's somethingeven more going on this right. There's there's much more going on than evenlike Wanda understands of what's happened, and that's that's fascinating.I think the the other thing that I'm really loving about Wan Division iswatching them. Do like a weird off beat very, like daring comedy, really makesme excited for what they're going to do with she. So so she hulk is my all time, favoritesuperhero, who do you think they have the caster? Yes Tatiana Moslanum, whoshe had like a small like one off roll and Porton wreck like inlike the two or three episode sequence.

She was the Doctor Without Borders,okay, yeah, but the main thing she's known for is she was the lead in orphanblack, which is a BBC America Scifi series a few years ago, which, tobe honest, is one of the best original SIPI things to come out in literaldecades, but she plays a. She plays a young lady who finds out that she isnot only a twin, but she is a clone. My Pine, I thought I sorry I thought I hadcome disconnect. I don't know you good, so you said Cantiana Masani, TatianaMasman, yes, not to complain, but she's, five for you, for can you get a Canadian to play someonewho's supposed to be angry? It makes no sense, O eleonore sixteen different charactersin that in that show- and I literally forgot it was the same actress MultipleTimes, O in sure she's, a great actor so good at like differentiating betweenall of the characters and sorry as that's a we have proper problems in the O, Atalya for a podcast to diffent between all of thosecharacters. So well as like doing like Jennifer Walters and she hook. That's abreeze and I mean got be clear: I'm Bein completely facetious when I, whenI make those jokes about her being peak by for it, it helps actually oxis six point:Seven Yeah Right. So good luck, FIESTA, six men! You know that are I you have to go toseite yeah you'd have to go to sweet, eeyah and, and your point of Unandi Imean this is the marvel? Well just imagine she's playing hockey all thetime. Oh yeah, Wolverenes, Canadian. Sorry, sorry what? But you didn't. What youdidn't realize is on each one of mover's claws. The word! Sorry! It'srich! Now I love love. Love Tataite was cast asshe hoped I legit stream and I do line use five foot three and like in my headlike if I were a super hero, I want to be she hoped, but I know I or thestrongest character the Marble Universel he is unbeatable. So you knowit's great, but he was also the greatest in Lego Marvel Super Heroes,because if you match the bee bunch of a grow little lego squirrels- and I waslike the cutest thing ever and just wrecked everything he's like I any like like. I was very I personally felt to validatedby you know five foot, four top on the Maslin justice. She folk. You know, you know, I mean honestly thehype thing, I'm not worried about it, I mean if they can make. No it all thepertaties, you know be a dwarf. It do mo me. Magic can do a lot of an eighes.Really He, if you know Jackson can play Wolverine, then Tapan Museal, you knowit's fine. I would send it off your high horse, but that man you never anyway anyway, I'm I'm very very one of is Io-makes me excited for what we're going to do with your hope. We're just justgoing to be a half hour, comedy yeah. I agree. I know yeah, so one division hasmade me excited for everything that the NU is doing. Actually what you've beendoing this month. All right, so in my role as tapwit Er at fan, Gerlach, Icovered a few different shows, but one of them bled into January first coupleweeks of junior ary and that was star trick discovery. So Nathaniel have youfinished star drick discover I did I did. I thought it was great. I thoughtit was great as well and no spoiler PAS Jason. I know you haven't gotten tostart Curtis fevery. Yet what are you still next, Jim Jason, or have youmoved on to des Nine? We got in to dsitinguished a lot ofStution, I'm all like who, but a right all the time, but to what I'll sayabout surfice discovery without without spoilers? Is that one thing that I really enjoyed about this season wasthat there was this perpetial thread of...

...cope throughout every single episode which well I have. I have loved startdiscovery from the beginning. One of the complaints about it was that it wasvery er dark and it did have the same kind of hopefulness that o that mostother startreader. I think this season they really interjected a lot of thathope throughout through up throughout the the run ofthe season, and I you know in a world as tumultuous and a s what's the rightlike ad Vecer as ours like, even even if it was done in a way that may not beentirely realistic. The fact that they could have stories that reflected that hopeabout humans working. You know stillacknowledging that we're very different and we do the world differently, butwe're able to work together and move forward together. That was something I desperately in twenty thythroughout two thousand and twenty, and in going into two thousand and twentyone. I just I personally needed that, and it was very like emotionallyCathartic every single week. But for me, like the biggest thing, this season wasthe the validation and the appomatox ofSofia Soviets season starrise. My my brother O that very emotionallysailing my brother, my next year, brother Ethan and my older sisterHannah. They apparently do not like tilly and I'm like. Are you kidding meme and my dad are like tilly such a great character? How do you not liketilly, the just like Odollam, okay, prepares ridiculous, but it's a goodway. I have a lot of hair and, like I have tocut my hair short with my hair to do anything period. Right. Tiles, likeepic Mane of Ginger Curls, are just a wonder to me. I was like this isamazing yea I think she's a great character a and I think she doesn'thave the. How do I say this in the way thatdoesn't sound Watkin I in plain she has a differentbody type that you typically see from female leads, and I think it's great, Ithink, she's awesome. I I think it's yeah. I think that's. I think thisthat's really good that they took someone who has a s. she's s moreshapely he's a sturdy girl. She S, but you know I think she's Goros yeah she'sgot you know broad shoulders he's juice, a heavy sets, not that I wear is La Sa.Hove set people assume what she stewy, but she's, not yeah like like she'sshe's, just a so morphin. I think it's dobes awesomeas one of my favorite parts of the show Ye, and so when my brother is like YeahTilly every time you Cole People Tilly a poet like shot she's great yeah. Nowyou I'm with you and pop that's awesome, I so what I really love about to lie. Asidefrom, like she's built like me to her hair, lay more epic than mine, so Iswear he gets crusier any episode, it's going to be an Afro season, for I takeup the whole shoeful. What I love about her is so so back in December Iactually got taste for and the result was. While I do not havea t I have a lot of, and so the way that till we react to stuff like howshe can type or focus and that she just excited drop the first F bomb in Star Trekhistory, yeah yeah happens, yeah, okay, so, but Ipersonally like I've, never like so there's only like maybe two or threelike fictional characters that I've never. I watched like in a televisionshow. Where is I oh wow? That's like watching me one. I bring a car feerMandaya via and then the third evite and tilly, like em bodies, like all thehyper and exuberant works of me, that are either really wonderful or reallyinlaying, but but also like watching her affirmation like the line andepisode to where Saru says to tilly. You are a wonderful first impression. Icried yeah like I love so Tis, so yeah like Sara, is so weird seeing himwithout his make up. I've had the pleasure of meetingdugouts like, and so that's not the first time. I've ever seen him withoutmake up, because I've actually met him in person, but I, like you, watch himin anything like he's, always like a monster or a creature or an alien orlike he's, never like his normal, like Dapper, handsome man, self and and andthis was dub Jones, being dean. Well W...

A Y yeah now is, he really is like, and he hasthat kind of warm and in tearing persona that so hasas well, and I really love that about him. I think Saru was the other reallybig highlight for me. This season was that he he made all he made all theRedicote. He did all the right thing. Oh, Oh, we lost actually okay. I waslike actualis pausing for a really long time, actually to a it's all right, O Ma yeah. So I say Ithink so I think so, okay, so what I was saying about so ruis like he andbodies like servant, leadership, M and- and that's so rare- to see ontelevision in any er any TV show period, it doesn't have to be a science fictionshow or whatever, but like that was such a breath of fresh air to watch.Somebody lead with humility versus, like I mean like, and that's not to say,like that. Star Trek has not seen like leaders that leave with humility, butyou have picard was very much like the boy scout you have archer and and Kirkwho are like Gung Ho cowboys. You've got Jean Way who's like the stern like decisive person, but you have sorrowwho is gentle and kind and and let bite leave like serving security for hiscrew, like my goodness, like that was that was very emotionally compelling awhat I what I was really interesting about. Sero is, I always forget,because he's like so kind and gentle and then when he gets in a fight hejust like, eat someone across the room into a boat you're like Oh, my God. Iforgot he's like super human, strong, like a Oh yeah. They did establish thatI grab someone and like rip Tom and happy like damn wonderful. It was like and that that'salways really fun to watch him in a fight seen where he just like, likeknocks out like five one felt so is like damn sorry, yeah yeah, it's allnight yeah. I do love me son Sure I love myson Sir, so I was lesty a couple things about discovery. I love the season thepop and I had the exact sent like one another, but what the worst thing aboutthe season was. Is that Michael? I never think she was sayingthen go back and then it wasn't something I wasn't thinking about intomy dad was like we trani need for sometimes I cannot my dad has has went to the doctor about it. He haslike a little bit of dearing loss, so it was really hard for him to hearanything. That Michael was saying because she I want almost everythingwith the sub pedals on right way, but she would I whisper, and it's like. Whyis she doing this? She didn't do this in the first season. She whispered alittle in the second, but every single it's it was UN. I couldn't stopnoticing it once my dad pointed it out an I k. Oh, my gosh she's actuallywhispering every single line right up until she, like you, know, get disyourself together and that is issuing orders. Then she's. You know speakingRogy, but every other like you're, not that man stopping. We need to go, but I also watcheverything with the l. So so I that that I totally miss that I love I lovewatching. I don't know I'm a Michael burnam plan. Oh Yeah, I'm to so, but Ijust I really really love Sinica, Martin, green and she's Great,Oh yeah. No, I don't think I had no complaints other than the fact that itwas really hard to hear some of her lines anyway anyway. So Start Your discoverythat that was a breath of fresh er that I really needed in so that that'sthat's one of the things I've. You know that what's on division, those are thetwo name like T v shows I keep out about be nice, Nice, so so I'm hearingis on comes to tilly. The Baine, so is what I so okay Januray was prettysparse to me. I did finish Avatar the last ear bender, which was so good.It's really stakin good. I was ripped the live action to my list. Oh, am I so lone thing done. How canyou do this? This is outrageous. It's unfair! It was real. No, I haven't seenLeecor. I heard it's not as good can't judge it haven't watched it do. Haveyou seen. Reger seemed like the first season. Would you agree it's not as good ayeeeee or gets better senses, because the first season was like a twelveAshen Maniere ei...

...yeah. They actually get a little bitmore face to breathe and actually tell a story in the later seasons. So itgets better. It's never quite as good, but got some good stuff yeah. So so I finished our Apanas Day. I enterabsolutely fantastic love it. We start to finish. I think it's just real etherreally good. So just it reminds me in a very good way ofteam tites. It's you know it's Goofy, but it has heard and Saka is just agreat character. Top is one I'm in its top as one of the best characters infiction, and they did such a get it her. So actually you would have yeah so socough. Is this blind charter, this little girl who could earth bed isshe's like the best ber earth bender ever, and so she kicks all sorts of ass,he's awesome but she's blind. So, whenever there's a scene going onsomeone who, like walk up to the group and start packing them- and everyonewill turn their head except for top- will just stare blankly ahead becauseshe's wine and they do a really really good job of emphasizing that any timeeveryone's looking at something top is looking the obvious at thereat likestraight ahead, but strayed ahead slightly down, because she doesn't lookat things. They do a really good job of she just not show her head to look atthings. It's a that's really a really good time with it, really God abut it's just so funny, watch everyone's turning head and of is likeright, but it's so great and he's also. But Iwas gonna okay, yeah, hilarious and sarcastic about her blindness to allthe time like their scenes where she's they're like flying out over a desert.Looking for a building, he suddenly it's just like there. It is yeah's very funny. I Love I love! Idon't want to spoil it, but but there's a part where Soka Saka is is reallygreat, but has kind of a tragic Lub lay is talking with one other guy and they like the and theother guys like and life's been hard. You know not out of, and so is like Iget. I man, I really do my first girlfriend turned into the moon. Yes,like that's a it's, but a really excellent uncle Irois such a part. I love him so much as session with its not supposed to cry. I was guilty justso sad, so I this t shirt for for Ryan, myhusband for Christmas and I totally slipped past me. One of the one editorsat Fangen has has as t shirt, but it's a picture of Iro and it says make t notwar. No, so she sent me a link for D, I'mGoin to get it for Ryan, but I intended to order for Christmas for him and Itotally for at. But Anyway, I understand I wrote and his love of keydoesn't Mark Cambell play like a villain in the show later yeah yeah, very, very, very lovely, yeah, okay,okay, all right, so I've heard lots of wonderful things about a I. I just havenot had the mental energy to commit myself to another TV show yeah it's itsounds like sixty episodes total or something okay, a yeah, so each season quote quote islike one of episodes, a really good, so see the other thing Iwatch. So I obviously watch one division. I've been watching backthrough as we finished so I've been watching at my mom and I were walkingthrough a Patar because we're like the only ones in the family hadn't seen it.So we got yelled at by or by my siblings, for not watching at a car. Sowe watched all of it. We finished in January, and then I was like okay. What should we watchnext and we wanted to go watch gallivant, which, if you've neverwatched it was this amazing two season long comedy musical fantasy show, Itold I would I really enjoy Gallan, but I've never watched and it was TimothyObinson was the evil King Yeah and I don't remember who the free leads were,but there hysterical and it's you know it's a musical, and so you know theseeing songs and things like that and the the opening number of the secondseason as them sinking about how shop they are. They didn't get canceled. It's really really really funny andTimothy Audens like starts off as his cares. Just like the evil. King he'sdoing evil things, but then later he ends up being like this reallysympathetic, hilarious character. He's like ends up joining tonyg horses withthe the good guys they watched out the...

...stair while like they come in. Theycan't these captures all of them and can watch in the stairs like well well.Well, but that wasn't good gain buck up the stair. Well! Well! Well, it's sosticking good! So I can't remy go it's not! It's not streaming anywhere, soyou did not watch that, but instead we we started watching young justice, sowe just got into season Green I've been meaning to watch that, eventhough I'm not up on my DC but because Greg Weisman did it and he's thecreator of Carl is. It is good now the third season is way more intense in thefirst two seasons like right off the bat, much more violence, much moregraphic. I still not like super super graphic, but the showing blood nowshowing some people buying. That was a that was a direct screaming.Yes, yes, yeah Arbutt Canedy, it's pretty it's pretty intense, but it'sreally good. I know I know that mom was a joyant when she said Hey. Let's watchyou on justice instead of me saying: Hey Mom was watching justice, so wewatch first season now when we have determine throughout the series. Isthat DC is the freaking worst at name things, it's UN, how bad they are, andI'm calling you out and see your naming is terrible. What's this guy well he's got a skulland he's his face is a skull and he's very acted. Okay! Well, that's the timeof call, and now I benes guys who had supermanand fat man so but those guys like household name, but it's like everyonewho are you? Well, I'm an archer and I wear Green Green Arrow for you, I'm anarcher and I wear Red Red Arrow like I'm an archer and I it were read, but Ialert it's it's all an so I just like look at me, like mom DC, our masters ofnaming they're, the wizards of Momin clater. Whenever you shows me, the thing Ithink about was an episode of Team Titans, where the villain they werefighting in the cold open was a was a bundance and robins cardiac or underarrest yeah. I was like what s went there all right, yeah. Well, I I said I got ahead out a little bit earlier at outings for January, for you the other thing that I started watchingand it was a very sad story. The third watching show called sanctuary is on aside by a while back an had a man of appincourte harder, go marble, Yeah Ye rites. You got really into it. You gota full season into it on Amazon, and then it started playing the nextepisode and we're like what or that previously on made no sense in aPantenne and season for Oh, how does that work? So I at I don't remember any of this happening. The premise is basically unser for what they call a or which canbe anything from like mythological creatures to like SCI FI.Like thing it just like set like different like different versions of Tahumans or that kind of thing so like in the first episode you see that theyhave like a Merman and there's like they end up talking about vampire thein a it's a very wide from it. So they can bring him basically whatever theywant. But there's some intrigue to her character too, like he is in a Bomaherself has lived for hundreds of years and has they go back to her back storyand you meet other like historical or maybe fictional characters that she is interacted with, and it's apretty cool show. So I'd recommend it. If you can find you know somewherewhere you can watch more than salad. The other thing I started watchingagain. I anime that I really enjoy that a lot of people have roscoe wilehorizon and it's essentiallyit's...

...another one of those people, a eTrappin in the esacus, and I a yes me, sick. I and think about this. One is the maincharacter for La Character. kind of like a herd. Introverted guy is more ofa strategist, and so it's less action focused and more. Like oh we're stuckin the world. Now you got to figure out a live here and, like you know, but the reason I started watching thatagain it was canceled after the SE season, becausethe author of the books, it was based on arrested tax of it. Oh dear. Whatwhat we got on apparently got thrason started up in a, but it's a really cool Yeou love itactually, the old lievde Gamer like a comet life.So it's a lot of fun. Those are kind of my two rapid fire you can findsomewhere to watch. Thank you, art, pretty great, an lock, Er Izolo Nice. Getting some one.One of the things I was going to talk about is as a local place here inCharlotte Hope. This art video, which boast the largest delection of films onthe East Coast and I've written down sanctuary, I'm going to look for itwhen I go on Sunday when my movies are so, but that that sinking, the actuallystill rents physical movies actually does because actually I goesout old school, and that makes me that much boright can't believe you've donethis well, I got to San off yeah, but it'sbeen fun all right, gibs before I forget I have to use. Yousaid something at some point: Nathaniel I don't know, but it was. It was somereally like, like sneaking in some kind of sneaky line, oh to wears likecardiac or under arrest. So I was watching just because I'museless and and o life I was watching like finishing moves or something frommortal combat. Oh your at picotes, yeah, and so, and so I see so they the Ambois now a payable character and so do in the new ones, Rambos a playablecharacter, and so it's the Terminator and so ad and Predator. I think yeahand so fanny, and so so Rambo comes in right and in was random. Youtte video Iwas watching, has each characters response to Rainbow, showing up andthey're all detailed, a rainbow like man, you kill a lot of people likeyou're in the government's best or whatever all he's a wit, and then oneof the guys looks at him and he goes he goes. Man Like like, like he goes allsay, you've killed. A lot of people must have a serious heart fordemolition man. They did not and like, like. I I thinkit's I think it's I forget the character. You could probably find it.Jacks, I think it's Jack's reacts to Rambo and he gives a nod to demolitionman in what had to be done. You Got Eh, yes, I okay, so so I'm Goin to monorecommendations, because I started we watching Maga here reading. We reallymind that slime life, which I think I might havementioned on the podcast of the fore slime life, which is about a black maze,uns a like a a magic good store and has to hire a monster to help her on thestore and ends up hiring a slime and is like. Oh, you know, I'm supposed tohave a really powerful master to help me, I'm going to be embarrassed, butthe line is so adorable she's like okay, I'm not going to fire you and it isabout. You know the sline learning to work at the store and their adventures,and it's the most adorable thing ever. It's just super heart wording and thena hundred chapters in it hit you with this, like emotional got Munchin likewhen did this this goofy Mana about this adorable slime and his adventures?Suddenly, you know happy tearing tearing up over what just happened, butit's so funny and so of them. The line is such a like a lovable character. Ican't recommend that one. I can't really explain more than that, it'skind of a think he gets into a situation. This is all by the end ofthe Chapter M and it's really really good and that definitely recommend itand all the chapters are really strong like free pages, so you could blowthrough it's, but it's so inhering. The other one I'm going to recommend is, is,I think, one of the best best megas on going right now, which is, I don't knowthe English name, but it's called Mary Mashita Your Room Oo and if you do look,is real ol find it. But it's got this kid whose parents are just the worseparents ever they're like oh you're, one year old, you can you can walk now.That means you get to work, and so they like they're, the horrible parents,they're, always putting even dangerous...

...situations like throwing him to bearsand wild tunas like all these mats, Anisia situations and Collonas in himand up selling him to a man. So he gets sold to this gem on and this pepe islike. I just want you to be my grandson, so he and yeah, and- and he has thisthing- where he's such a nice kid and he can't say no to anyone. So the devilwas like he, my grandson and he's like okay. So when he comes his kids, thisguy fance on this guy is like, if you really a high level human on the bee,like the One popery heavens, the one that everyone is assuming his one totake, the from is the be game, and- and so he like sends him to school, and thedemon is the principle of the school, and so it turns out. The Room obviouslyis a human and he would take you it so he's freaking out, but he he's a goneclass and it turns out that he because of how of his upbringing, he isinvincible like he can't attack anyone, but itshows us like Stato and it's like a tack, Zero Defense Infinity as he soused to getting a dangerous situations that is biles naturally dodgeeverything. So he everyone ends up as suing he's this really horrible demonand he starts making all these friends and he's such a a hardware characterhe's like teaching the demos like what does friendship mean and things likethat. It sounds really really sacralis Ay, but it's really adorable and thecurrently in art where he had to Prostrasse to become a a like an idolto help one of his classmates and there's this other idol o the callinghim ugly and he just getting like really bad about it, because he is likeidols as supposed to keep right. If I'm an idol, I'm cute so he's like reallymad. Look. We have to win this. It's really funny. It's really adorable andhe's like such an Aderin character. So I'm been a reckoning, those to date,time and then, of course, Avatar Afterlife Air Bunder Young, as ishigher, commend those. I just watched all free, John Wicks, those were fun orjust a first yeah yeah. I watch also. I need to revisit that Eve. I think I'veonly seen the first one and I don't remember anything about it, other thanKano uses in it and it has fight with a gas he gets in a fight at a gas stationwhich is alfy Allen. Who was the on Grady on me? We can just call in fanyeah. Actually he doesn't get the fight the gas station I'll be on, come hishouse and beat him up. He Pilson Dog, oh Ta. No, but no MIT confrontation isat a gas station. I had a conversation at the gay yeah where he's like Nicecar like Lemley it then he just like John Wake. Just like doesn't sayanything drives off a like a that guy. A buty goes in so yeah, okay. Well,let's I'm trying to think if I have any recondite well, you think I have onemore fan. Sorry, so one of the Games I played one of the narrative games Iplayed was Wolfan stine new order, which was kind of the Red Mare boot that they didfor the Wolfenstein series and it takes place in kind of alternate histor, O ns were not seeing. Germany won the war because they had all this crazytechnology that they stole from des like the Dunes had the secret society,where there, the secret society, helped dote shoon, which was basically likethey make technology to get closer to God, and so they made all these crazyweapons, but that's just like stored them, and the Nazis found one and usethat to take over the world, and so the culminates with you, stealing a giantsubmarine which I'd get in a submarine. This submarine was way too big, like ifyou ever. If you've ever been on a submarine, he is astrophobos as hell.Everything is pack o tight, like there's enough room in a hallway forone person to walk through, because it's you know they cram everything thatthey do o do this. This thing has like six levels and like giant open spacelike what submarine have you bitten but anyways, they steal a summary. Theycan't use the nokes because they have to go, get the launch codes from the Matsy Moon base.So your bass fishing is you go to the Nazi moon base and he steal the COTSArtemon it's. It was a really fun game. Really interesting game could take onthe whole world war. Two killing Nazis, like transplanting and making all thecharacters all the characters just feel like they're just exhausted and there'slike this one little ray of hope. They might be able to do something, so itwas really good. I enjoyed it. A lot would recommend it yeah. I was trying to think of otherthings that I've been into this month. I mean obviously, like I said: I'd govid, so a lot of T v show watching me and meant Cuban watching scrubs. Idefinitely could talk about last of us for a longer period of time than I did been playing age of empires. There'snot a ton to talk about there. It's a t kind of strategy. You Know S R G S, oneof the best ever made yeah very, very, very good and deter game, and for thethe uninitiated to you all tell me what Rtststr real time state formtheological seminary yea. So Arts is real time. Strategy is basically likeyou produce like stark, PRA and run alert series where you build up acivilization, and then you you have you create like masses of troops, you'reessentially commanding groups as your on, like civilization games, which islike turn based or I take my turn that you take a turn. This is all happen,everyone's doing it at the same time. Yes, send your armies to go attack yeah, but I'll mention something kind offunny. This is this just happened the...

...other day, so I have I've recentlyacquired an oculus quest, which is a VR kind of gaming system, and I've beenplaying. There's there's a game called Super Hot, which is probably myfavorite game on there. It's very just fun to play. The mechanics of it aresimple. These polygon to people are trying to shoot you and you can youkind of, have matrix powers, bullets and time only moves when you move, andso, if you stay still, you can kind of look around with your eyes see what'shappening, people are coming, want directions, shooting at you, and thenyou can kind of make your decision to duck or to punch it to grab a gun andshoot it anyways. It's got a lot of game options where S it's fun for avery long time, but then there are story, type games that are immersive orimmersive right needing that right, yeah, okay, e, a Mercie and in I saidsubmersive before, and you had to cre but immersive, and I've gotten like thethree vader immortal episodes, which are very, very cool. I mean you getsucked in real quick, showed Nathaniel sister in law, who's, a big stars fanand she flipped it was out. Very was it. It was amazing just to watch her. Doyou do you play as Darth vader in the button yeah? You need your bar and likeit's terrify, it is. It is it's like when you watch it on the screen,because you can cast the BR to a television. It looks it's Holi, it'slike this is hiation one or two like like it. The graphics are kind ofblocky and it's just you're like okay as a compared to like modern deGraphics. This is this is terrible for when you put the head set on it,couldn't look any more real like it's a lie. It's because, like it's, I meanthey've. Come such a long way to the point. Now, where you don't e need theremote, it can track your hands. So as as you put the remote down you likedyour hands, it actually shows a digital outline of your hands as a character,and so it's super super bizarre and, like you get you get supersubtileforget I mean nathaniel would mention it like the first part of this game,you're sitting in the hall of a ship and your flipping toggles, and you know,shifting into hyper speed. When you come out. You know it's all rumblingand they're talking about a starter store coming by and you're lookingaround, and you have to look directly over you to see the start. I shorecoming over you and that's when it kind of hits you that all right, this gameis not all just going to be like happy anding in front of me, I'm going tohave to look around, and actually I'm present in this world that things arejust happening to. It really emphasizes that that moment to be really emportez.It's like the difference, Beteen looking at a picture and thenphysically being next to the object because, like when Anna my sister inlaw was playing it and she got to the start. I was like look up and look up.She looked up and gasps and I'm looking on the screen, I'm like it looks like acraker cut out of as far as for yeah when I play it, and I look up like whatthey so they do devil really. Well, they GIV me it's very much like that.Looks like it's that far away, it's getting closer to me, like I'm, almostconvinced that that it's not actually like, like that. This is reallyhappening like it's so anyways. Needless to say, I've been prettyexcited about this. This br thing I had no idea how far the technology comealong and it's very fascinating. Recently. I thought you know what,because the thing with VR Games is it's not like other systems where you've gota bunch of people that have played this game and they're on a bunch ofdifferent platforms. You can kind of know the history of it. These are alllike: Hey, you're kind of just going to have to buy this game, to figure out,if you like it, because there's no, whether way to experience right and soI'm looking up reviews, I'm doing all the stuff, and I stumble upon this gameborn yes, goin this anartas in the desert,like. Let me explain, okay, because this is pretty hysterical, so I clickon this game. It's the second most popular Ballad Games, O my God. I gotit and I'm like, let's play the trailer, so the dransact- and I did you notthere's this comically, you know oversize looking gladiator guy and hestarts singing in German and they start bleeping every other word. He says andthen constantly it's showing this montage of clips from the game and I'mnot kidding you. Seventy five percent of them are censored completely thewhole entire screen, it's just black and it just as censored, and so I'mlike what is this man? It's I keep watching and it's this weird Germansong and all us it'll be like a quick flash to that to like to the montage orthe Bee. Roll of, like somebody swinging a sword in a gladiator fight,an alms, and it stops again and it's like censored censored censored werelike there's some like object being thrown across the room, and it's justblurred out and ate some guy in the face and he falls down. I'm like whatam I, and so I'm like looking this up. I'd like what and so parly it's justcomically, gruesome and over over the top, like you're, essentially in agladiator fight, and that's why it's so brutal and gross, and so, but I'm likewhat I, what a pointless trailer that I sat there and it was literally theseloud. It was like they didn't even try it like the beeps were just like halike every two seconds and I'm Ok into enjoyment. I can't understand itanyways and every screen is just like censored censored censored boot bodypart gone by censor like what I like. Thank you for showing that your now Iwant to get the game.

The funny thing is, I go. I'm going tobuy this game. Have my credit card information in there because I justrecently changed credit cards and I was like okay. I guess I wait, but that ismy next game I plan to get so I will tell you guys how born is. It has greatreviews and says it's a very fun game to play. It's a P C phenomenon.Apparently every P plays it and the the transition to VR was apparentlyexcellent and everybody really really likes it. Let's see if you do yeah yeah like like the sum up of theTimes that yeah I'm just Goin to like throw my sword in the crowd be like.Are you not going to Tay but yeah? I guess I'd be remised if Ididn't mention the VR being a big thing for me in January, just because I gotit for Christmas at December, a late December, and so that has been a funlittle little change of pace. There's also a game called acron. This ithin,my life, that that we no a Ron, and so it's a party game and the way this gameworks is, if you let say you have five people or of them, would be on theirphones. They download an APIT, free and you're playing as squirrels and you'reattempting to go. Take these acorns from the base of this tree and bringthem back to like your hut and there's a total of like for, but the personwith the VR head set is the tree and so like it's such a bizarre thing to beplaying a game on your phone and you're running around as a little cartoonsquirrel. But then you put the head sit on and you see the cartoon squirrelrunning around your feet and you're like this is crazy, and so, as as theyou know, as the tree, you can throw these rocks and these, like other, likesap things, and you can also just grab the squirrels and I eat them across thegame. A A A I, a litle, I'm just gonault theset of the room and sat down and was literally just meeting due yeah. We'reon a level where some of the eels have like high cliffs and walls, things asyou can't like go the wills out of Bouten, but this one was like the treesat the edge of a pit. I love you have the O bake. My E, like five seconds meto land yeah. I was like I'm still flying in the air at it down yet, but that's a great party game. It'sbeen a lot of fun but yeah. So I'll just mention VR is kind of my lastlittle geeking out thing here before I guess we're doing sign offs, but yeahteritet sounds really fun greg. So my favorite Scifi novel of all time isready player, one and riddy player. One is now required reading for anyone who getstired at Oculos Rif, that's awesome, so so everything that you have justdescribed makes me very, very happy on on a like a sciencefiction or level so that I'm a cremating, but I think like if I weregoing to do anything like the newest sist of my own, is aleak which is now like so T. I will like to mention that I don't know if,if he is epano Console C has had a Reisac of d games that are rea yeah yeah. I'm aware I don't reallyplay a anything like on ts, but I play with that. Just yeah play what I'msorry undertail. It's like an SES, graphics, it well On anything and I'mnot going to say anything about it. I say you could play it and it willprobably make you die. It's really go! Okay, it's all right, but yeaheverything that you've just described Greg about like the Vater game. I waslike okay. That actually makes me really. WANTA sounds like red clar one.That makes you very hayes. It's up there, yeah, okay, very good, very good, so soyou're recommended any recommendations. Yeah so is. If we're going to do. I have a whole list here in some of themare kind of like related, but some of the things that I kind of got intoJanuary in terms of watching related I've mentioned on the podcast many atime that I'm a huge fan of John Carpendero is my favorite for therecord. He is one of my favorite directors period, and so I have made apoint of watching his directorial work over the past couple of years, and Iseem to realize that I'm now only like one point: five titleshy of watching every film who's ever directed aside from a couple of shortfilms in the s that I'm not sure I can I'm anywhere part of the way I've beenable to do. That is to a video store based here in Charlotte,called bizard. Video Charlotte is very fortunate and we have a real honest togoodness legit video store. VIZOR video has set themselves up as a non profitfor film on history and Film Education, which is how they've been able to stayopen, but they actually both leave largest collection of films on the EastCoast. They have thirty thousand plus titers, which is very, very cool. So ifyou are in the are Charlotte North Carolina area, even evend, if you're,like thirty minutes or an hour out, I...

...think it's work for o like going to theSart video, because I was there Tuesday and one of the the guys workingthere said for contact. They have thirty thousandfurs. Titles in their collection, nettle, Amazon and Hulu have somewhere in the neighborhoodof twenty thousand is unique titles, so nature combined, combine yeah, so sothe collection they have there is is vast. It's if you're. Somebody like me,as I mentioned in our last episode, who really loves cult film and unique hardto find rare things bizarreterie for those things and plus they have ascreening room that you can rent, which is you know, huge vast collection offilms so and, and they don't just have D VD. They help vahs tapes as well,because some things have not made the crossover to dvrerivs blue ray anythinglike that, and the only book we can watch them is on Phs and I am one oflike three people: Another accent as a function crie ably of things on h,because I think that's fun so anyway, because of bizarre been able to crossall, but like one and a half titles off downcarpenter to the corals o. So I've actually got one in myprocession right now that I haven't much yet it's the word, which is a filmhe put out in Wenten, and I keep saying half because I've watched like thefirst like thirty minutes of another film, he did in like the late early oncalled hires. But I've not finished it. So that's like the only other junk orJohn Carpenter, director, so yeah, so John Carpenter, slash is overfor that's a one of the things tenot about in war in terms of watching stuff.THAT'S AWESOME YEAH! So I'm very much a completion ist, and so, if I find likea an actor or a director or a music musician, really like I want togo and listen, watch read their or entire catalogues of things thatthey've done and I like to start forgetting work. My way up, because Ilove to see how they evolve a an artist. And so that's been a really experiencefor me getting to do that. Awesome treat yeah, so yeah. I've got a coupleo other things on here, but if I one of the other enantia away well, if you can like rabbit fire,because I think we're ready to wrap up just stuff, yeah hit them all coolother thing, another local place in the Charlotte area, it's in Ment Hill,North Carolina, but I love Vinyl Ryan and I last January, took some Christmasmoney and bought a new record player and that's been a really greatinvestment to both of hospitals, a Gooba. I especially love movie, Suntanspores, and things like that, and so I picked up a lot of vinyl recently at alocal place called hardy voice records in comets. They are in the upper level of another.kind of random is store that I'm going on the name of right now, but I found alot of really cool vinal. They have both new and use. They also have a lotof comic books and those are all like us for older back issue comics, but Ipicked up a lot of movie scores recently. Some use some new, but I got the scorefor starters. Jerry Gold O, which is I potentially, might be the best thing heever did M it's a beautiful, ful, beautiful score for next Gen fan themain t an start. Re Commotion Picture is what they use for the things on TATAcituation, but even even aside from that, the the the rest of that score isjust immaculate. It's beautiful, really, really beautiful music- and I say thisas Jerry Goldsmith- also scored my favorite movie of all time, which is alie, and I think the score first technology picture is even more likeBeau. I think also did really like. We e the Sun Jack for Rudy is amazing yeah, which what way is it really very roti?Haven't seen that I didn't realize he did this call man or our sports episode yeah I need to I haven't that everhappens. I A the San Law and agens in the Outfield, so remember the titans and Rudy are anyway,so we'll say the for another yeah Gord goldsmids players. I also was able speaking of JohnCarbine. I was also able to pick up the score for Halloween. Two Thousand andeighteen got a BR, a new copy of that it is amazing. It's also the first timeyoung carpenters been involved with the...

Halloween films in Halloween. To soreally really cool he'd actually did the score with his son and another guy,whose name always escapes me. So I'm sorry other guy who work on that sportgot a better name, Ro yeah. No! It's just that. I can't I remember it's JohnCarpenter and cody garpenter and then I'd blank on the other guy's name. Iwant to say Davies is his last name. I C is it David Davis? I don't think so, but I'll I'll look itup later and I'll, send it to throw it and show it so I'll feel better aboutit, but also picked up a score for like Flash Gordon on th s movie were CIECOfor that at a flash at what else I get silent running, I don'tknow if it runnings yeah the Bob Side O. No, I think I nennen four science fiction,like Environmental Scifi thriller, but Joan Biez did the main thing for that.So I really like Joan bias so and I didn't realize she did the main thanfor so I actually picked up a copy of the score for that anyway. So lots ofcool records I found at hardy boat boys records and comics hardy boys recordsand comics not only have increased my vinal collection, but I've also helpedme bring me up to the half way point on sensational she hole which sensationalshe hok is the Ne Nine one thousand nine hundred and eighty nine series ofshe halt. Comics that ran for sixty issues. I now have exactly half of thatrun, but it was originally written by John Byrne, who is kind of his take on.She. Hok is really interesting because he shifted she hold from a she holk smash kind of character toshe's, big and green, but also she's, really funny and she's a lawyer, andthis book is going to break the fourth wall all the time and it's various andI love it and it really inspired Dan slots run of shop which aired or whatis gone with, ran in like the thin twoads and that's kind of the maininspiration for. What's going to be the she hok into you to the series so a fewyears ago, I I say a few years ago. This was nowapproaching a decade ago, when I was an Undergrad and in a class called comicbooks, is modern mythology and writing. My final paper presentation on she hold,so I read a little bit of dance. Lots run then, are and a little bit of theJohn Burns since I tional from so I've been collecting that before peopleremember that she holds too and those are so those issues don't cost me amillion bucks so anyway, just to just to so point out that I always soughtshe howash, because in Marvis is cap gum her level three super is she callsa taxi and it just hits the other person and she's like beats a Hap at ofthem with the pack. That's awesome: THAT'S FRANCAIS! I've never played thatversion of marvel versus Cap Com, but that is so in line with, like the JohnBurns run of sensation, he hoped in the late earl s s perfect. I love it. Thiswonderful. The other thing I recommend is for Christmas. Ryan gave me a star Trek cocktails book called StarTrek at cocktails compendium. So, while I am I'm very much, if I am asked whatkind of alcoholic beverage I would like to drink is, I would like beer or Iwould like Musky meat. I've had a lot of fun, making Star Trek inspired,poppas, which one of which I'm for a a F is Ben with a Rizan. It's very fun. I've had alot of fun months. That is my list guys. That was very long. I am being ardybloggers, so I do all right so so the longest list is my Aran for me, Isuppose does the Times on. I don't know how do you find theseplaces accident? I was looking for her life but art because they used to be locatedacross the street from my favorite Irish pub in Charlotte, which nowdoesn't exist and then because I would go watch allthe retro horror at the early Grand Theater, the is who Ashley, grand andbizarre together like where you brought in your reserare ticket stubs to vizard.You got to free rentals or like a rerent, pricket sob like Max of Topers,I would go watch the double feature for...

...like a month, free system, baby yeah. So so I waslike. I now get to cross all this weird stuff off my list. So you know, eventhough they didn't get to do that last year was like well, you know what I vowthis art. I love that I can go into an honest goodness, video story, the last as buster yeah for real, I mean, but water thenlike hardy boys, like help me find like some, I was looking for some of theninety five run of Marble Garb oils, comic books and I contacted them andthey didn't have any, but the guy was so nice.
