T2J: Hoping to be desirable enough to be pirated!
The Jerks talk about the possibility of Tim Tebow returning to football to play for Orlando’s new AAF team (please, no!), whether Tebow is baseball’s most popular active player (sadly, yes) and news about why at least one team doesn’t want Colin Kaepernick. Plus, reshoots for the Aquaman movie, a Justice League “interactive” wax museum exhibit, the new (old) King of Donkey Kong and Tom reviews OOTP Baseball 19. T2J — they’ll never strip our records away, because we don’t have any!
The Jerks talk about the Head Ball Coach coming to Orlando (along with an AAF franchise) and Conor McGregor’s meltdown. Plus, does WB really have plans for Deathstroke, Y: The Last Man coming to TV, why Ric thinks comic book movies and TV will soon die out and rebooting The Last Starfighter. T2J: We’re geeks, but well-rounded ones!
We didn’t intend for this to be a special April Fool’s Day episode, but it turned out that way. The Jerks are talking about the new Alliance of American Football (and why it’s better than the XFL), the 76ers well-placed trust in “the system” and Beer League hero Scott Foster. Plus, DC’s next crossover, some Green Lantern Corps news and why Meryl Streep is NOT replacing Carrie Fisher in Star Wars. Plus, a prize if you can catch all the references (and tell us what they’re referencing)! T2J: More Easter eggs and references than Ready Player One — almost.
In our latest mini-sode, the Jerks tackle the Debate To End All Debates (For Now): What is the greatest superhero movie of all time? Which movies belong on the Mount Rushmore of superhero films? Their opinions may or may not surprise you, but they’ll definitely enrage you!
The Jerks discuss Ric’s favorite team landing the top NFL free agent prize (Kirk Cousins), lament the demise of their March Madness brackets (and explain why it’s wrong to enter multiple brackets in the same pool) and work through the details of a strange new rule in Minor League Baseball. Plus, Ava DuVernay is tapped to direct DC’s New Gods movie at Warner Bros., but the Jerks think it won’t get made and the first public screening of Ready Player One divides audiences and we think we know why! Those Two Jerks: The Mission to Civilize continues!
The Jerks discuss the end of the Legion of Boom, with the Seahawks cutting Richard Sherman, Kevin Love opening up about mental illness and Mackenzie Dern’s accent. Plus, more discussion of Shazam’s costume, the early backlash against Ready Player One (sight unseen) and a lightning round of TONS of movie news! T2J: We’re (pretty) sure Rosey Grier is still alive!
