The Jerks run down the NFL Draft, the newest team added to the Alliance of American Football and the even louder calls to shorten the MLB season. Plus, Avengers: Infinity War made Ric cry, the director of the next Star Trek movie makes history and an interview with Brian Volk-Weiss, creator of the Netflix docu-series The Toys That Made Us! T2J: Toys (and video games, comic books, cartoons, movies, tv, sports and standup comedy) definitely made us!
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.
