Unless you've been living under a rock...or a Groot, you know that the second installment of the Guardians franchise is in theaters. We dive into all that is Marvel and dissect the franchise's second helping. While Patrick loves the film (read - anything Marvel), Allan is left wanting more and has a lot of questions about violence, Quakers, immigration laws and other oddities. All of which Patrick has plenty of numbers for!
This week we threw out what little format we had and decided to have a bit of fun. Allan, Patrick, and the crew got out of the studio and headed over to a local tabletop and board game playing establishment, The Game Chateau. They go toe-to-toe with some local "Star Wars" fans in one of the hardest versions of trivial pursuit around. They laughed, Allan cried, there were leaders of men; a good time was had by all!
Back from the dead...and pitiful storytelling, "Gotham" has returned. Even though Allan has sworn off watching "Gotham" (after we killed it), we wanted to test his ability to pick out the poor storytelling options the writers have gone with. And trust us...there are plenty of them!
This week Allan and Patrick, somehow, fill the entire show discussing the trailers for "Thor: Ragnarok" and "Star Wars: The Last Jedi". Both trailers leave a lot a room for interpretation and what could happen, but also have audiences clamoring for more!
This week we continue our discussion of Women in history and take more questions from the audience. Rich get's told to shut-up and Patrick and Allan throw down on the misogynistic turmoil that is "Game of Thrones".
No matter what the "Media" or "Others" or "Collin" tell you..."Even More Mashed-Up" did not forget to do a Women's History month podcast during March. March had so much going on...so much, that we had to wait until now. And furthermore, why can't we celebrate Women's History whenever we please?!
Women's Pop culture history, enjoy!
Netflix and Marvel released "Iron Fist" as the next series in the lead-up to the "Defenders". Of the Netflix series released so far, "Iron Fist" has received the lowest ratings from critics. Patrick and Allan discuss if the criticism is worthy. They also discuss the show's continuity, what's bad and good do another version of fair and foul.
This week Patrick and Allan take on Hugh Jackman's final stab at Wolverine, "Logan". For a film many thought was going to be "Old Man Logan", it turned out to be quite a different tale. That said, in the pantheon of X-Men films, "Logan" ranks near the top.
Also, this episode is dedicated to the memory of Okla Elliott, who passed away this week unexpectedly. He will be missed by the Misericordia University community and all who knew him.
This week's episode of Even More Mashed-Up was snowed in by winter storm Stella. But...Allan and Patrick always deliver! Rain, sleet, snow or Stella, they will always be here for your pop culture needs. So, in lieu of a regular show, we bring to you their radio show, "the Mash-Up" where they discussed all things Batman, including the new Lego Batman Movie!
