Episode 172: Lost-The End

Your good buddy Chase returns for a very special chat with Blake and Kenny about the final episode of Lost! After six years of waiting, what questions did the final episode answer? What was left unresolved? Which episodes were most important and which ones were the most fun to watch? And is the Lost Experience really over? In the picks, Chase goes with Avengers #1, Kenny digs the return of Birds of Prey, and Blake is happy with Fantastic Four #579.

Episode 171: Siege, Sentry, and Lots of E-Mails

Kenny returns in this all-e-mail episode! After spending about a month on assorted special episodes, the boys sit down and read a slew of them all at once -- comments on Blackest Night, Lost, The Hulk, thoughts on Siege and much more! And since Kenny hasn't read comics in a while (and Daniel doesn't read them at all), Blake and Mike each double up on their picks -- this week, Legion of Super-Heroes #1, Superman/Batman #72, Atomic Robo #3 and Booster Gold #32!

Episode 170: TV Talk With Lost and Doctor Who

Responding to recent requests, this week the boys talk some TV. The guys talk about the entire season of Lost just before we head into the last two episodes, including which questions have to be answered, which ones probably won't, and predictions for the end of one of their favorite shows. Then, Blake and Daniel delve into the current series of Doctor Who -- the reign of Steven Moffat and Matt Smith, why they're loving this series so much, and what they're looking for in the second half. Fear not though, friends, you still get a comic fix. In the picks of the week, both of the Big Two's "new directions" are addressed. Mike goes with Brightest Day #1 (which leads into a tangent about Titans: Villains For Hire #1) and Blake takes The Heroic Age: Prince of Power #1.

At the Movies Episode 16: Iron Man 2

The boys didn't have time to record a regular episode this week, friends, but you're not going Showcase-less! Blake, Mike, and Daniel took in Iron Man 2 last night, and today we offer up our on-the-spot thoughts. How was the movie? How was the recast War Machine? How were the new characters? And does it hold up to the original? The guys also discuss the new direction for Tony Stark in the recent Invincible Iron Man #25, and Blake works in a pick of the week, Vertigo's I, Zombie #1. PLUS: Blake also gives you a bonus sneak preview of a new project that he's going to launch this summer, courtesy of the Evercast.

It's time once again for Geek Christmas, Free Comic Book Day!
