"Snap, Crackle, Pop" - Obsessive Comics Disorder #88

Heads up: Technical issues are afoot in this episode!  Due to circumstances explained at the top of the show, we had to move the studio and now my equipment is acting all wonky (by the way, if you are an audio expert and can tell me whats going on, email me).  That aside, we've got Kickstarters to talk about, jokes to be made, and GenCon is quickly approaching!

Dice Masters, Not D&D With JJ Valentine - Boards & Swords #43

5 Things About The Poltergeist Remake

I had the "Privilege" seeing the Poltergeist remake this weekend.  As a general rule, I hate horror movies and do everything in my power to avoid them.  However, my wife ADORES them, although I'm not sure which she enjoys more: watching the movie or watching ME watch the movie.  Regardless, the original Poltergeist was one of her favorites growing up, so as soon as I heard that there was a remake, I knew that I was doomed to see it.  Having now seen it, I have some thoughts, which I will now share with you, relatively spoiler free.

The Flash Review - "Fast Enough" aka The Best Dang Hour of TV Ever!

I've learned over the past few days that writing TV recaps is hard when you start with season finales.  Every single one I want to say "Wow!  What an episode!", but that seems to diminish the future recaps.  I find that to be especially true this week, as I saw probably the best hour of television (Daredevil aside) that I had seen in a while, and that was The Flash season finale.  Honestly, this is the part where I would throw up "SPOILERS AHEAD" and move right into the review...


...Except that I can't.  Last night's episode was so amazing and gut wrenching that I really do not want to spoil anything for anyone.  So this review will be fairly light and spoiler free.  First of all, I've never had a show play with my emotions as much as this episode did.  There were times I was cheering at the screen, times I couldn't keep myself from yelling out "NO!!!!", in addition to times where I was thoroughly confused.

Whaaaat? A Magic The Gathering Special Edition? That's right, I have had the chance to play the new Dragons of Tarkir set not once, but TWICE since the last episode, and enjoyed the set so much that I decided it was time to bring back the special edition to discuss it. Not a fan of Magic? That's okay, we'll be back next time with a normal episode.
