Gobbledygeek: Episode 176 – A Fetid, Pestilent Marshland
Jason Tabrys of The BastardCast is back to play merry havoc with–well, okay, a little of that happens, but for the most part, Koko’s return to Gobbledygeek is more focused than normal. Among the topics discussed are the Veronica Mars movie and its abundance of fan-service, the Cosmos controversy, and the fact that Captain America 3 and Batman & Superman: Friendship Is Magic opening on the same day is going to keep the idiotic flames of the Marvel/DC fan war raging long into the night. Then there’s the big one: When you hate something–say, oh, The Big Bang Theory–is it fair to continue harshly criticizing it on social media even when you know someone who likes it? The (different, conflicting) answer(s) may surprise you (or not)!
Some helpful links to aid in your enjoyment of this week’s episode!
Long-time listeners might remember the Four-Color Flashback series AJ did on the blog about the Claremont/Byrne Uncanny X-Men, or he and Paul dissecting Preacher. Well, we’re bringing that feature to the show starting with the next episode. At the end of each month, we’ll be discussing one volume of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman, and spoiler alert: Paul and AJ really, really love this comic. Joining us for this introductory episode is Broken Magic author, The Deli Counter of Justice co-editor, and Brony for life Eric Sipple.
