SOS_OffSeasonLogo_1

A GAME OF THRONES PODCAST THAT DISCUSSES OTHER GREAT POP CULTURE DURING THE OFF SEASON

With Joanna Robinson from Vanity Fair, Dave Gonzales of Thrillist.com, and Neil Miller from Film School Rejects!

Welcome to another off season tour episode of A STORM OF SPOILERS!

This week – Joanna, Dave, and Neil have spent years watching Netflix's Marvel shows in anticipation of this event: The Defenders. Fear not, spoilerphobes, you don't necessarily have to watch all the Netflix/Marvel shows like these goons to check in on this crossover. First, the trio talks about what they knew going into The Defenders and if you need to have watched all the othere series before watching the main event. Then, they talk about the eight episodes overall before spending a little time at the end coming up with wishes for the future of The Defenders characters and Marvel's Netflix universe.

A GAME OF THRONES PODCAST THAT IS TALKING ABOUT OTHER GREAT POP CULTURE DURING THE OFF SEASON

With Joanna Robinson from Vanity Fair, Dave Gonzales from Geek.com and Neil Miller from Film School Rejects!

Welcome to another off season tour episode of A STORM OF SPOILERS!

This week, Da7e, Joanna and Neil have all spent 13 hours in Harlem (and Seagate…and Georgia) with Netflix's newest binge-watching super-hard punching reluctant hero Luke Cage (Mike Colter who – SPOILER – everyone likes as the title character). It's also a big step forward for black represtation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but might have some major story problems as the season goes on. Everyone ready to have media based opinons about a superhero show again? Plus, the gang can't help but speculate about what's to come for Marvel and Netflix when they get to The Defenders and beyond.

97 – Jessica Jones AKA how to stop David from talking about Carol

 

Jessic_Jones

With returning guest Joanna Robinson!

This week, Netflix has finally released their second Marvel series of the year, Jessica Jones from showrunner Melissa Rosenberg and star Kristen Ritter. David Ehrlich totally liked it, so we brought in a contrarian to face off against David’s unexpected Marvel love: Vanity Fair’s Joanna Robinson! Jo sticks around for an episode that is otherwise lightly about the Cate Blanchett movie Carol, considering there’s a segment praising Blanchett and another inspired by Carol’s score, but the meat here is Jessica Jones.

A podcast about Comics Pop Culture!

Hello FITWR listeners, Republic City Dispatch fanatics and Storm of Spoilers/Cast of Kings fantasy nerds, we’re back for more comics discussion!

New comics enthusiast Joanna Robinson of Vanity Fair’s Hollywood and The Station Agents podcast is joined by a guy who just wants to know how Secret Wars ends already,  Da7e Gonzales of Geek.com and  Latino-Review.com

No matter your level of engagement, if you’re interested in comic books and their surrounding pop culture, this show’s for you!

THIS WEEK: Television season has kicked off and this year there are two females at the forefront. Both Da7e and Jo have seen some of Jessica Jones and the first two episodes of Supergirl so it’s time to judge the first wave of female superheroes tossed at us since Agent Carter. Then, besides some light Batman news that involves the Red Hood and some debate about the X-Franchise, it’s time to talk about Doctor Strange and Benedict Cumberbatch’s facial hair.
