A History of Sitcoms Through WandaVision: The Talking Head of the 2010s
Wandavision Episode Seven: Breaking the Fourth Wall brings us into the 2010's a decade where most of comedy was cutaways to to the talking heads, awkward zooms, tough story lines and a decline in the family sitcom as we turned to streaming. Modern Family broke that trend and showed us a more inclusive, more, well modern family on the screen. We discuss the episode, the impact of Modern Family and how comedy from that era aged worse than other eras.

A History of Sitcoms Through Wandavision: The 80s
We're back to the regular sitcom shenanigans of Wanda and Vision! Though they are getting more serious as Vision and others start to feel that something is off in their perfect world. In the history of the real world, sitcoms and TV got more serious in the 1980s as cable TV brought more competition, violence, and an edge to family sitcoms that the vaudeville era never had.

Superman: Man of Tomorrow
Another entry in the DC animated universe, and the first in the new post Justice League Dark timeline.

Deathstroke Knights and Dragons
Originally developed for the CW Seed, and now reedited into an animated feature film. Deathstroke: Knights and Dragons is DC's next animated movie, following Slade Wilson in his quest to save his son from the Jackal. All the R-rated violence and blood cannot compensate for bad dialogue and a bland story. This was recorded during COVID19 while practicing social distancing, so apologies for any sound hiccups.

Transformers War for Cybertron
Netflix has graced us with an incredible Transformers cartoon! While it is a little more grown up than the 80s hit, Blake and Terrence love the tonal shift and shows that a property can grow up with the fans it connected to at a young age. We review the show, and discuss other properties from our childhood that we think should get a more mature glean. This was recorded while practicing social distancing during the COVID19 pandemic so we apologize for any sound hiccups.

X-Men 20th Anniversary
Another week of Quarantine, another week of no new movies. Luckily old movies continue to get older, allowing for anniversaries. The X-Men celebrated its 20th anniversary, so Blake, Terrence and guest Justin Donaldson remember what was the summer of the X-men, if its actually the start of the modern super hero movie, and what should come next from the franchise.

The Old Guard
Netflix has dropped a new film! Which in 2020 is quite the feat. The Old Guard adapted from the comic of the same name, deals with some prominent themes, and finds ways to distinguish itself from other super hero movies. However, some of the best bits of the comic do not make it to the big (or small I don't live in your house, I don't know your TV situation.) screen. Blake and Terrence discuss

In another week with theaters closed and remakes and reboots at all time low, Terrence and Blake take to Netflix to watch Eurovision, a movie that takes from other great Gary Sanchez productions and waters it down to something not great for people who don't what Eurovision is, and not great for people who do

The Quanstream II
As Blake and Terrence continue to self isolate, and the movie industry continues to not release anything, they once again discuss the movies and shows that are getting them through the pandemic. From Upload on Amazon, to Looney Tunes on HBO Max, and some classic horror and comedy. We got it all here! This was recorded while practicing social distancing during the COVID19 pandemic. We apologize for any audio hiccups.

In week 14 of COVID19 many movies are not making to theaters. Some, never deserve to be in theaters in the first place. That is the case with Artemis Fowl, the newest addition to Disney+ Blake and Terrence discuss how the movie departs from its book, why the YA genre seems to be faltering, and what they think could help it. This was recording while practicing social distancing during the COVID19 pandemic. So apologies for any sound hiccups.

Greg Hahn joins Blake and Terrence as they look back to their child hood (again, because that how Hollywood keeps getting us) with Hannah-Barbera's Scoob! The fully animated comedy comes with a lot of jokes, a lot of fun references, but repeats a lot of tropes we have seen before.

Justice League Dark: Apokolips
In week eight of COVID19 Terrence and Blake watch the conclusion to the animated DC universe (at least for now) and how it builds its characters, and the things animation allows you to do that live action may not.

Black Widow Pushed
This week we should be discussing the anticipated Black Widow, but due to COVID19 and theater closures, it has been pushed.

With theaters closed we turn to Netflix, and their adaptation of a graphic novel Ciudad. Extraction starring Chris Hemsworth, and produced by the Russo Brothers, gives us a lot of cool action and even more familiar beats and character moments from all the action hits of the 70s,
