“He’s about to hyuck you up.”

Had enough of E3 2017 yet? Of course you haven’t! The show may be over, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop listening to people describe the same video footage over and over! Brandon, Liz, Harrison, Emily, and special guest Eric (nope, not that Eric) are here to deliver exactly that as they discuss all of last week’s major reveals, trailers, hiccups, stutters, fumbles, touchdowns… uh, what were we talking about again? Is Pelé here? Wait, wrong football. Anyway: E3!

“When I was in college…”

Brandon, Liz and Josh waste NO TIME this week (didn’t even fool you for a second there, did we?) and dive right into Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and renew their own excitement for Thor: Ragnarok. Then, after the break, everyone promises not to steal each others’ original characters in Sonic Forces (and Brandon gives an early eulogy for Archie’s presumed-dead Sonic comic series), share a few more Persona 5 thoughts (no spoilers!), and answer a gaggle of listener emails. Is there a backpack fashion show tucked in there somewhere? Only one way to find out!

“We slam a Dew and talk about hot boys.”

BLT is back! This week’s episode starts off pretty heavy as Brandon, Liz and Tom take a somber and serious dive into Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale… then swiftly pivot into the rainbow-colored race tracks of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and the current state of Nintendo Switch ownership. There’s more Persona 5, too! And some soda nonsense! And a bunch of listener emails! All right! Okay!

“I don’t want to go there and be baka gaijin.”

It’s Eric’s last show– possibly ever!?!?– and Brandon, Liz, Tom and Jenny have decided to see him off with a flurry of excitement over trailers, trailers, and more trailers– including the latest for Thor: Ragnarok and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Then, after the break, the table discusses how insanely cool Persona 5 is, analyses the new slew of Amazon series pilots, and plans their future trips to Japan, Europe, and pretty much any place that isn’t North America. Lastly, after one more quick break, the gang pools their strength to… give Felicia Day a very hard time, apparently!

 

“I believe that genre is called ‘clop clop,’ thank you.”

Dashing and daring, courageous and caring! These are words that COULD be used to describe your internet friends Brandon, Liz, Tom, and Jenny as they dive deeper into Zelda: Breath of the Wild, analyze the new hosts for The Great British Baking Show, and poke hesitantly at the trust fund kung fu of Iron Fist. Then, after the break, the gang watches some GOOD television with the revival of Samurai Jack, tumbles down a near-bottomless Disney Afternoon hole, gets wide-eyed and eager for Jordan Peele’s Get Out, and descends into the horrible bullshit surrounding the troubled release of Mass Effect: Andromeda. Oh, and a quick listener email!

(Heidi’s just here smoothin’ it in this episode, by the way. Ain’t no thang.)

“Why hasn’t some trash-bastard made that yet?”

My goodness, what a full table we have! Join Brandon, Liz, Tom, Harrison and Josh on this special Switch-mas Eve episode as they go full Johto with the latest update to Pokemon Go, then hit the ends of Watch Dogs 2 and The Last Guardian. Then, after the break, they tackle John Wick 2, The Lego Batman Movie, and the most effective ways to ruin both of those through repetition. PLUS: you won’t want to miss our most robust emails segments yet, featuring questions about pets, zombies, the creative process, and self-censorship within the realm of YouTube comedy.

Yeah. It’s a biggun.

 

“I AM the Tokyo Big Show!”

Good evening, good evening, good evening good evening. Good evening. It’s podcast time, in case you weren’t aware, and Brandon, Liz and Harrison are sure as heck gonna talk about the Nintendo Switch and it’s HD Rumble, floppy arm boxing, the absence of levity, and how much GameStop sucks. Then, after the break, the gang dives into the world of streaming television to talk about Sherlock, The Expanse, The Grand Tour, The Man in the High Castle, and A Series of Unfortunate Events.
Don’t worry– there are also listener emails. Please enjoy! God, please. Please try to enjoy something. Let’s all try.

“Wake up, sheeple!” -Liz Macke

In the last podcast of 2016, Brandon, Liz, Tom, and Josh say goodbye to George Michael, send their best wishes to Carrie Fisher, spoil and review Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, learn about Tom’s extremely sudden trip to Spain, and spoil and (mostly) praise Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

 

“What a great moment here at the Game Awards…”

It’s  time for JKP’s kinda-sorta-holiday episode, and Brandon, Liz and Josh have come up with new reasons for the seasons: Geoff Keighley’s annual Game Awards, new Hollywood best friends joining Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding, and the latest news from Sony’s PSX event (including a new Uncharted and more The Last of Us). Then, after the break, the trio warns against playing the apparently unfinished release of Final Fantasy XV and talk about cowboy robots in HBO’s Westworld. And, yes– a couple of listener emails!

“He’s so pissed he’s DEAD.”

Brandon, Liz, Josh, Harrison and a sporadic, electronic hum come together in the loft to map out the week’s major upcoming events and “celebrate” the release of Final Fantasy XV. Other topics covered this week include motorcycle repair and maintenance, Dishonored 2, Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival, Pokemon Sun/Moon, Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them and Disney’s Moana.
