Ten Things about the S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series

4 comments


1.  Good choice, Marvel.  Show the grand scope of the Marvel Universe through the eyes of the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., supercops and superspies but ultimately normal men and women in an increasingly non-normal world.

2.  Colbie Smuthers reprising her role as Maria Hill on at least a recurring basis seems totally doable, doesn't it?  "How I Met Your Mother" is surely winding down.

3.  We really need Neal McDonough as Agent Dum-Dum Dugan, Jr.  He will grow the mustache again, people.

LXB: Saturday Morning Cartoons...CT-Style!

7 comments
This week's League of Extraordinary Bloggers challenge is:
You’ve been hired to program the ultimate Saturday morning experience for kids across the nation–create your own ideal Saturday morning cartoon schedule.
Well, I'm not sure I'll quite come up with something that all kids across the nation will like, but it's something I'll sure like. I've poured through a few of my favorite artist blogs (a lot from Planet-Pulp) and found inspiration in their work. Sometimes I've assigned a property I'd like to see translated as a cartoon and other times I've decided I'd like to see their own creations translated to the small screen. These are all new shows, rather than making the line up with existing shows because quite frankly most of the existing shows I want to see are already on DVD. Even stuff that has been in cartoon before will be a reboot. So, without further adieu, here's the perfect line up on CT-TV...

6:00 am – Wookiee the Chew
Based on the book written and illustrated by James Hance, this Winnie the Pooh/Star Wars mashup is the perfect way to start the morning. I hesitated suggesting this at first because the legal work to get this made would have to be a nightmare. But then I figured...why not? This isn't about reality. This show would be a hoot to watch.

We cap off the first year of the Nerd Lunch podcast with a session of Ask Us Anything where questions from some of our listeners fill the role of the 4th chair. We tackle pressing issues such as our favorite Starfleet captain, last meal choices, dream guests, why the 80s are so popular, and more. Our Nerd To-Dos really run the gamut this week by including bothThe Chronicles of Narnia and Piranha 3DD.

Every podcast has to have a guilty pleasures episode and this week we finally do our take.  Joining us for the confessions is our favorite strange kid, Rondal Scott.  Who enjoys the worst reality TV show?  Who likes an emasculating rom-com?  Who revels in cheesy flicks from an 80s action star?  Listen for these revelations and so much more.  In our Nerd To-Dos Jeeg reads a book, Pax plans a Movie Man-athon, CT keeps buying digital comics, and Rondal plans an epic run of SNL viewing.
