Episode 300: Wizard World New Orleans 2014

It’s the 300th episode of the Showcase, and Wizard World decided to celebrate by throwing a convention! Or maybe it’s a coincidence, who can tell? At any rate, the guys spend the weekend at the convention and chat about cosplay, the autograph-prolific antics of Matt Smith, the fact that Attack on Titan is apparently a thing now, and Blake faces the reality that the next time he goes to a convention he’ll be with his (GASP!) wife!

And what’s cool this week? Kenny doubles up on the card game Fate/Zero and the TV show Almost Human, and Blake’s into The Fox #4 and J.C. Hutchins’s The 33.

Episode 297: The Night, the Day, the Doctor

It’s an event fifty years in the making: Blake and Erin gush over the Doctor Who anniversary special The Day of the Doctor! In a spoiler-saturated discussion they talk about John Hurt, the return of David Tennant, Easter Eggs and surprises galore, and exactly what this episode means for the future of the franchise. They also talk the mini-episode prequels The Night of the Doctor and The Last Day; the BBC drama about the creation of the series, An Adventure in Space and Time; and the recently-concluded IDW anniversary series Prisoners of Time.

And what’s cool this week? Erin is reading Crag DiLouie‘s The Infection, and Blake is having fun with Forever Evil: Rogues Rebellion #2.

Episode 291: Regeneration

It’s regenerations galore in this week’s TV-focused episode of the Showcase! With the news that Matt Smith will leave Doctor Who at the end of this year, the question arises, who will be the twelfth Doctor? And will he finally be ginger? Meanwhile, Smith’s former companion Karen Gillan is regenerating into a villain in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. In a shocking move, fired Community showrunner Dan Harmon is regenerating back into the show for season five! And how does the new NetFlix regeneration of Arrested Development stack up to the old stuff? Also this week, we talk about DC’s “Villain’s Month,” and in the picks Blake is digging Rocket Queen and the Wrench and Hope Larsen’s graphic novel adaptation of the classic children’s novel A Wrinkle in Time.
