Fast and Fury-ous: C!TB rewatches THOR

[After the “noted” “success” of our LOST rewatch two years ago, James and Scott are back to prepare for the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron the only way they know how: by going through the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, movie by movie.  We are not very imaginative.  Check in every week as we go into way too much detail about pop entertainment and frequently say people are wrong about things.]

James: So right down to business, then! Last week, we talked about the often maligned IRON MAN 2, and found a lot of stuff to like about it! This week, we take on another movie in the MCU that’s often maligned: THOR!

so confused... so wet

Can’t Wait for STAR WARS? Try SAGA.

Hey you.

How’s it going?  Maybe you’re new to this site.  Maybe you’re here because you saw Brandon on the local news last Monday  [Ed Note: and if not, catch it here!] and there was this giant, super sexy logo behind him.  And realistically, you probably tried to google that name and discovered it’s the least SEO-friendly name in the world.  I want you to remember that, because it’s going to come up a lot here.

Gotham… Nights: C!TB watches the premiere of FOX’s Gotham

Hey do you think this show is dark and gritty

[Ever since their LOST rewatch, James and Scott Williams have been talking about doing another dialogue review of a TV show.  With Fox’s Gotham starting this week, as well as C!TB’s proud and recent history of doing this with comic book-inspired TV shows, they decided to take a look at the pilot episode of this new show and evaluate what it does right, where it slips and where it might go from here.]

Podcast! The Comics, Episode 134 – The Lost Brontë Sister

We're trouble.

You know how last week this line said that the episode contained despair?  I was wrong.  That’s this week.  Oh god, it’s this week.

This episode is brought to you by Wizard’s Comics, home of the best deal on comics in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.  Check out their website for a list of the week’s new releases and information on upcoming Magic, The Gathering tournaments, and watch their Twitter account for news and announcements about the shop and its stuff.  You can even use their website to buy digital comics!  

Um, Actually // Guardians of Punctuality

Still not as good as Jingle All The WayWelcome, dear readers, to our regular letter column; a series of missives from and to the internet, delivered by a series of tubes. We welcome your comments and questions. About anything! We’ll answer it, and at least one of us will take you seriously. Maybe.

Seriously, ask us anything!  It can be about comics.  It can be about films.  Maybe you’ve seen Boyhood already and want to talk about it!  You could ask about pro wrestling, too.  I hear people love it when we do that.  Then again, I also just hear white noise when most of you talk anyway.  You could even ask about why Brandon is leaving James to go traipse around in godforsaken New England, where the accents are wicked awful and the seafood is admittedly bountiful.  Actually, maybe email Brandon and ask him to pick us all up some shellfish.  Note: when guilting Brandon for going on vacation, maybe leave out the part where James just came back from vacation.  You know why?  BECAUSE HE BROUGHT BRANDON A GIFT, THAT’S WHY.

You’re welcome, Internet.
