Jake and Tom Conquer the World (tv & film)

On this week's episode, Tom and a slightly tipsier than normal Jake go through quite a variety of topics, including a question of barroom etiquette, the food that Tom finds oddly disgusting, the reveal of Joaquin Phoenix's "Joker" costume, the odd controversy surrounding Batman's most important sidekick, as well as a better alternative to DC's proposed "Supergirl" movie.

 

All of this, however, is before the heart of the episode.

For years, now, Jake has been tormented by Tom in an attempt to make him watch movies outside of his comfort zone.  But for this episode, the tables are turned as Tom watches a movie he's spent a quarter of a century avoiding: 1993's "Demolition Man", starring Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes & Sandra Bullock.

So hit the "play" button and listen in to find out if Tom thinks the movie deserves it's reputation as a beloved piece of 90's nostalgia, or if he thought it was a piece of something else.

Sorry folks, no new episode this week, as Tom decided to take a week off to celebrate both his birthday & wedding anniversary!

But that doesn't mean there isn't anything new to listen to, as the guys dust off another episode of Wizard Rewind!

On this edition, Tom is joined by Nick from the world famous "Epic Film Guys" podcast, as well as the equally notable "RestauRant" podcast!  He came aboard to crack open Wizard Magazine's 2005 "Mega Movie Issue", featuring stories on the films that turned out to be th estarting point of the current film age we're still witnessing today, including Christopher Nolan's first "Batman" movie, Sam Raimi's third "Spider-Man" movie, and Tom Cruise's upcoming "Iron Man" movie (yes, you read that right).

Be sure to check out Nick's shows wherever finer podcasts are found, as well as Tom & his friend Peter's continuing coverage of Cobra Kai, over on the show "Tv Ate My Brain"!

Jake is away this week so he can celebrate his 40th birthday.  So Tom decided to break out the big guns:
Joining him once again for this episode is Matt from the dearly departed "Couch Party" podcast, as well as the legendary Ranty Bastard, former host of the greatly missed "Retail Rant".

Today, the guys are delving deep into the internet and are settling the stupidest debates the can find. 

"How stupid?", you ask? 

They're stupid enough to wonder if a hot dog is a sandwich.  They ponder the idea of cereal being a soup.  They even try to figure out whether a baby can be considered a vegan if they're fed breast milk.

Y'see...?  It really does get that stupid.

But it was also a helluva lotta fun.  So hit the play button & get ready to laugh at three supposedly grown men as they argue the merits of proper toilet paper etiquette.

This is a pretty fun episode -

After a brief roundup of geek news & Jake's rebuttal on an episode he had to miss, the guys continue their series of odd chats.

In this one, the guys imagine a conversation held between their current selves, as well as their teenage & elderly doppelgangers. 

How would these various versions of themselves get along?  What would they warn their younger selves about?  What technology would they give them hints about?  And more importantly, who would get slapped first?

Jake is outta town this week, so Tom has recruited his good friends from the dearly departed Couch Party Podcast to help him out!

Listen in as Tom, Matt & HAB recount the hedonistic days of their youth, before diving into the latest geek headlines.  Topics covered include whether or not the "Star Wars" franchise is in crisis mode and if Kathleen Kennedy should removed as the head of Lucasfilm, who the hell thinks a Morbius movie is a good idea and can Sony's "Spider-Verse" be saved at this point, and is DC's streaming service gonna be another letdown, and can these old men deal with today's comic book stores?

And, of course, since this is a full blown Couch Party reunion, the show just wouldn't be complete without a look into America's own Thunderdome, as the guys go over bizarre headlines from HAB's adopted homeland of Florida!
