We review “The Writing on the Wall” and finally we get some answers about said mysterious writing! We’re guessing it’s a plan of the lost city of the Ancients, somewhere in the Pegasus Galaxy.
 
Splitting the group up for extended periods was our least favourite thing in Season 4 so it’s annoying that we’re doing that again. But for the second of three such episodes, at least they’re concentrating on Abraham, who might be our favourite character at the moment.
 
We’ve essentially watched three Constantine pilots in the last couple of weeks. Firstly the original never-aired pilot which set up a series featuring Liv as a main character… Then we watched the retooled pilot after hearing that there were a load of changes…wish we’d have realised we could just rewatch the last ten minutes. Finally, since Epis ...…
 
Slabtown, in which the long-awaited answer to the question of Beth’s whereabouts turns out to be…really bloody disappointing. Good thing we’ll never have to come back to this…CAROL! FFS!! WE THOUGHT YOU WERE COOL!
 
A little while back we discussed the first issue of Grant Morrison’s insane DC Universe dream project Multiversity and now we’re back to discuss The second and third chapters in this epic saga. It’s already messing with Jon’s head, as he seems to make the same “joke” about the comic being haunted in both reviews…cue spooky music.…
 
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. continues to do what it does best – disappoint. Plus! Our initial thoughts on the MCU Phase 3 news!
 
Once I ran to you (I ran) Now you’ll Bar-Be-Que This tainted meat you’ve taken You didn’t know that I’d been bitten Take my tears and that’s not nearly all Tainted meat Tainted meat
 
Secrets, revelations and some new tech with the potential to make the series very annoying! Check out our thoughts on “Face My Enemy” and “A Hen in the Wolf House”.
 
After the almost unbearable tension of last week we get a slower, more character-driven episode which still manages to keep the action level, stakes and mystery high. Best of all there is absolutely no sign of any cannibals. Phew, what a relief!
 
The Thwipping Boys discuss the tense-as-all-fuck season five opener…and have a lengthy discussion about how confusing the Negan / Not Negan thing has been. That was NOT Negan at the end of the episode. Note the face tattoos. — Robert Kirkman (@RobertKirkman) October 13, 2014 This CANNOT be the guy from the flashback as Kirkman says. Plus why hi ...…
 
We continue to podcast on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with our thoughts on “Heavy is the Head” and “Making Friends and Influencing People”.
 
We didn’t love Season 1 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, something we mentioned in that uncharacteristically angry Serenity podcast we did. So we’re hoping for something funnier, cooler, darker and just a bit more engaging with Season 2. Does the first episode show promise?
 
Season 3 gets off to an extraordinarily English start with the introduction of Marcus (we haven’t even got to A Late Delivery from Avalon yet!) and the Thwipping Boys accidentally recreate a scene from Breaking Bad. Previous Babylon 5 Podcasts: – Season 1: Signs and Portents – Season 2: The Coming of Shadows Part 1 – Season 2: The Coming of Sha ...…
 
One of Jon’s favourite films from his youth is a 1982 Rankin Bass animated fantasy called The Flight of Dragons, something he maintains is more than good enough to provide enjoyment to an adult. So Simon checks it out, despite an admitted dislike of animated fantasy. Then the guys both have their first experience of The Last Unicorn, another hi ...…
 
Former Babylon 5 cynic Simon and longtime fan Jon continue their epic Babylon 5 podcasting session with Simon running the emotional gamut from confusion (IS Kosh actually a Vorlon? Does he still have affection for Londo?) to surprise (they’ve discovered Morden!) to utter joy (Talia’s gone! Hurray!) and more. Enjoy! Previous Babylon 5 Podcasts: ...…
 
Huzzah! It’s the second part of our epic “get a guy who thinks Babylon 5 is crap to watch the whole thing and record his reactions” series. If you haven’t listened to the Season 1 Podcast, then get thee over there and do that by jove! If you have, then join us for the first half of Season 2, which begins with Simon’s reactions to the Sinclair-S ...…
 
Podcast – Doctor Who: Deep Breath and Grant Morrison’s Multiversity #1 He’s walked with giants, gods, 5th dimensional beings and aliens from every corner of time and space. He’s fought and conquered evil from the darkest reaches of the universe and the deepest recesses of his own soul. He’s an insane old bastard who delights in taking you on cr ...…
 
Podcast: Avengers Forever Part 2 – Issues 7-12 A few weeks ago we published our thoughts on Avengers Forever, a title we were initially stoked to read. Unfortunately that excitement seemed to turn out unwarranted as we struggled not only to enjoy it, but to grasp what was going on. Now, finally, we have completed this epic undertaking. Does the ...…
 
If we dismiss Firefly, for the obvious reasons, then there’s only one real contender for the crown of best Sci-Fi show ever as far as I’m concerned – the epic Babylon 5. The problem is, I’ve had very few people to discuss it with, because nobody will give it the chance it deserves, which is something I understand only too well, as I was that gu ...…
 
“Let’s read Bullet Points!” he said. “JMS is awesome!” he said. “I’ve heard it’s a really awesome twist on the Marvel Universe!” he said. The boys take a look at Bullet Points, the Marvel miniseries with the slightly-more-complicated-than-it-should-be high concept of: “What would happen if Captain America never existed and for some reason Ben P ...…
 
The Thwipping Boys have never made a secret of their love for the works of Joss Whedon and Firefly in particular holds a very special place in their hearts. So the first canon post-Serenity story, written by *cough* Whedon no less, should be a thing of beauty, right? Right? BWAH! PS. Before you Browncoats get all shirty (or…coat-y?) Jon realise ...…
 
Podcast: Avengers Forever Part 1 – Issues 1-6 Before we undertook this in-depth look at Busiek and Pacheco’s Avengers Forever we were bright-eyed young podcasters, optimistic about a future filled with awesome stories like this one, which we’d been led to believe was one of the great standalone Marvel tales. By the end of this podcast we are so ...…
 
Podcast – Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 10: The Children An in-depth discussion on the Season 4 finale, with a few rambling discussions and out-there theories about ASoIaF in general thrown in for good measure. Loads to talk about this week so probably best just to let you get on with it! PS. Since recording Jon’s handed in his nerd-card aft ...…
 
Podcast: Batman #13 – 17 by Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo and a whole bunch of other fine folk. Because we only cover the most recent events in comics, we decided to return to the New 52 and take a look at Death of the Family. What we have here is a fine example of how one carries a podcast when 50% of your presenting team seems to have nothing to ...…
 
Podcast – Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 9: The Watchers on the Wall. We were led to believe this week’s battle would pitch a Wildling army of 100,000 against our tiny band of 102 plucky crows…and that’s not really what we got. However what we did get was another awesome hour-long battle set-piece to match up to Season 2’s “Blackwater” – dire ...…
 
Podcast: Avengers Forever and 24:Live Another Day Jon and Simon return to the world of comics with a preview of their in-depth look at Busiek and Pacheco’s Avengers Forever! Plus at the halfway point of 24: Live Another Day, the boys wonder if Jack Bauer still has a valid place in today’s post-Homeland world, as well as making some predictions ...…
 
In the second edition of our spinoff show, The Irish Whipping Boys, Simon gives an in depth review of the recent WWE PPV, Payback. What did he like? What did he hate? Make sure you give us a watch/listen to find out. As always, you can download the podcast in the handy link just below this paragraph. You can listen on itunes or watch via the em ...…
 
Podcast: Television Reviews – People Just Do Nothing and Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 8: The Mountain and the Viper The Red Viper by Zippo514 Way back in October 2011 for Episode 6 – Disco Badger, back when we were mere podcasting babes, we covered a series of internet videos called People Just Do Nothing, following the ups and downs of MC ...…
 
Evenin’ all. When Jon and I decided to bring the podcast back we wanted to do things just a little bit different. We decided not to be so strict in what we talk about, how long we talk and when we talk about it. We want to cover things we’re passionate about and we’re pretty happy with going it alone if need be. That’s where we are now, because ...…
 
Film Review: Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X-Men: Days of Future Past Heeeeeey! So, we’re back. Kind of. After bursting onto the scene with nine months of podcasting GENIUS back in 2011/12, we had to jack it in to deal with myriad issues – addiction, anger, alcoholism, you name it. But we fought our way out of the black pit of despair for one reason ...…
 
Warning! We start off this week by discussing the sixth episode of Game of Thrones Season 2, “The Old Gods and The New”! This week’s comic books discussion covers topics as diverse as the origin of King Arthur and whether Adrian Veidt is f*cking that weird cat thing of his. We also have some fun with Rob Liefeld’s first issue of Deathstroke, ca ...…
 
This week we kick off with a rant about the Machiavellian, headline-grabbing antics of Mark Millar, a man whose lack of shame seems to know no bounds. Did you know he WROTE THE PLOT for the Avengers movie? Us neither. Then after catching up with the Game of Thrones chat it’s onto the week’s comic books, including a different type of Justice Lea ...…
 
Sorry for the delay in getting last week’s show up. Truth is, we got together to record a few videos, the first of which – an awesome Avengers Review VideoCast with MASSIVE, IMMEDIATE SPOILERS – is already available. The DC comics disappointed somewhat this week and we’re still not loving anything AvX related, so thank heavens we had another fu ...…
 
After the shambles that was last week’s listless show we find our mojo again (and some crack!) and compare and contrast the beginnings of the Avengers Vs. X-Men and Night of the Owls events with AvX #2, Batman #8 and in a surprise reappearance, Nightwing #8. In doing so we hit upon exactly what Marvel needs to do with Cyclops after this is all ...…
 
This week something happened in Demon Knights which we predicted way back in September after reading #1! We also take a look at two new creator-owned books in the form of Jonathan Hickman’s Secret and America’s Got Powers by Jonathan Ross and Bryan Hitch. We continue to enjoy Watchmen and JLA, say good-bye to Kyle Higgins on Deathstroke and enj ...…
 
This week we randomly decided to take a look at something that wasn’t in the plan. As well as checking out Avengers Vs. X-Men #1, we saw that Mark Waid and Stuart Immonen promised that something called Avengers Vs. X-Men: Infinite was the future of digital comics. As digital devotees, well we had to check that out didn’t we? Question: How can y ...…
 
The Thwipping Boys tackle the pick of the week’s comics, including Ultimate Ultimates and an intriguing new creator-owned Vertigo series from Dan Abnett with The New Deadwardians. We continue our retrospective looks back at Watchmen, Batman and Identity Crisis, check out the horror side of the DCU with Justice League Dark & I,Vampire and get re ...…
 
Welcome to a new Special Edition of the Thwipping Boys podcast as we continue our tradition of delving into a classic of the comics form by reading Marvels by Alex Ross and Kurt Busiek. Originally featured in Episodes 10 to 13 of our show, we now present the review as one single piece. But that is not all! Oh no it most certainly is not! Becaus ...…
 
This week we cover Wonder Woman’s Invisible Jet, Doktor Mandrake, Fishing Spider-Man AND The Adventures of Big Face. What more could you want? Batman #7 shows that Greg Capullo and Scott Snyder are just taking the piss now. Plus, there’s droppage this week. It’s positively droppy, in fact. Show Notes for Ep.28 – 07:07 – In WATCHMEN CHAPTER 4 Si ...…
 
There were so many comics out this week that we had to skip Identity Crisis and Watchmen, in order to check out a new Vertigo book by one of our faves Paul Cornell, as well as the return to comics of BKV with Saga, from Image. Show Notes for Ep. 27 – Whining Little B-tch 10:27 – Morgan turning into such a whining little bitch in BATMAN AND ROBI ...…
 
This week sees the return of the Underground Comics Challenge as we take a look at Zombie Outlaw, while we continue our read-throughs of the classics Watchmen and Identity Crisis. Grant Morrison seems to have pissed off Chris something chronic with the quality of Action Comics. Our favourite comics writer has one issue left to please us, or we’ ...…
 
It’s our gala 25th episode! We forgot that while recording but it’s still a milestone we’re proud of! There’s no New 52 books this week…what are we gonna do? Last time we were so confused we took the week off. So we thought we’d catch up with six issues Buffy Season 9 as well as featuring the return of Simon’s Batman retrospective and the next ...…
 
This week we continue delving into Identity Crisis, check out the latest batch of DCnU books, catch up with Miles in Ultimate Spider-Man and two of us continue to be blown away by Prophet. We also drop a book we were loving not so long ago – it’s not an easy choice by any means. Oh, plus we start reading Watchmen. Show Notes for Ep. 24 – No Mor ...…
 
We chat about the latest batch of DC #6 comics, wonder why we’re continuing to read Doctor Who and continue our journey through Identity Crisis. Jon also puts the guys on the spot and asks them to take up the Paul Cornell Doctor Who challenge. Show Notes for Ep. 23 – Shut Up Stupid! 07:16 – Green Lantern Corps #6 17:47 – Dr Who #14 22:26 – Iden ...…
 
This week we’re all healthy again and celebrate by picking up our DCnU books and as well as checking out the excellent Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil. Simon continues his Batman restropective, and we delve into another DC classic by checking out Identity Crisis #1. Plus! Jonny has a bit of a mishap! Show Notes for Ep. 22 – Batman’s Fridge 10:50 – An ab ...…
 
This episode is hampered by chesticular sickness, and was made possible by a hot toddy. To make a hot toddy in the traditional Thwipping Boys way: – Squeeze the juices from two lemons. Put aside. – Grab cafetiere (or alternative infusing method), realise as usual that you forgot to wash it after your last coffee. Wash. – Place a teaspoon of cin ...…
 
This week we review the latest batch of DCnU titles with Aquaman #5, The Flash #5, I, Vampire #5 and Justice League Dark #5, plus Simon takes a look back at another classic Batman comic, Batman #420. Finally we jump onto Jonathan Hickman’s Ultimate Comics Ultimate Avenging Ultimates #6, just because of the cover. Nobody said we ain’t easily swa ...…
 
We’ve chucked in all kinds of stuff this week! We jump on JonnyJon’s all-time favourite comic Ultimate Spider-Man, grab the first issue of Joshua Fialkov’s Doctor Who arc, bring back our Underground Comics Challenge for Red Angel and check out Prophet #21, which involved us giving money to Rob Liefeld. That wasn’t easy, but do we regret it? We ...…
 
It’s time for the 18th awesome episode of the Thwipping Boys podcast, discussing an especially strong showing from the DCnU. This week we have fire, death, Darwyn, destruction, betrayal most foul, and someone getting smacked with a submarine. So grab a cuppa and relax as we review Batman and Robin #5, Deathstroke #5, Frankenstein: Agent of S.H. ...…
