The #JerksFarewellTour is in full swing, or is it? Another of the “10 Signs” may be coming true, as Jon “Bones” Jones is about to be reinstated for MMA fighting. The Jerks break down the repercussions of that, plus NFL Hall of Famers want insurance, an interview with best-selling author Jeff Pearlman about his new book, telling the story of the USFL (and how President Donald Trump helped usher in its end) and the latest on Space Jam 2. Plus, reactions to the Captain Marvel trailer, an update on some DC movie news of all kinds and a farewell voicemail from one of our loyal listeners. T2J – the universe is conspiring to keep us open (we think)!
The Jerks run down the final list of teams in the new Alliance of American Football, analyze the action in this year’s World Cup and discuss Dana White lamenting the decisions of Jon ‘Bones’ Jones. Plus, why Star Wars fans are the worst, DC Comics’ new giant-sized issues and the Twitter “discussion” about ElastiGirl and Incredibles 2. T2J: It’s about an hour and a half, give or take!
The Jerks give their takes on this year’s Baseball Hall of Fame class (and Ric’s personal connection to one of the inductees) and the return of the XFL. Plus, with all the reboots coming to TV, the Jerks discuss which series they want rebooted, and a look at the great new Netflix series The Toys That Made Us, and a look at which toys made the Jerks! T2J – Made by toys and comics, fueled by nerd rage!
It’s Halloween, and we have mostly tricks! The Mets are in a hole, the football Giants take a step toward accepting gay players, and Jon ‘Bones’ Jones has been reinstated. Plus, tidbits on Batman v. Superman, Captain Kirk loves Wonder Woman, and some jackanapes are ruining the Star Wars fun for the rest of us. Those Two Jerks–it’s not a full-size candy bar in your trick-or-treat bag, but it’s not bridge mix either!
Adrian Peterson’s unhappy (with his contract), the Jerks are unhappy (with the Magic’s coaching hire), FIFA leaders are unhappy (because they’re going to Sports Hell), Ric’s unhappy (because Batman’s in Suicide Squad), and fans of continuity are unhappy (because of how DC Convergence ends). Unicron-Studio Executive is the only one happy (because he just canceled Tron 3, and he’s having dinner with a starlet who thinks he’s going to put her in a movie). Those Two Jerks: The 1,328th and 1,329th hardest working men in podcasting!
The NFL coaching carousel is out of control (probably), Kurt Busch is crazy (maybe), Tim Tebow is not special (likely), Latino-Review is lying (more than likely), Enter the Knight is a bad non-porn title (definitely), and Tom Hardy’s out of the Suicide Squad (certainly). Many more adverbs lie within this week’s episode of T2J!
It’s a little old and a little new! The Jerks recap the biggest stories of 2014, introduce a new segment (and new friend of the show), and lament the mindlessness that is Bowl Season and the next Star Trek movie. It’s the holiday fruitcake of podcasts: useful as a doorstop, and about as tasty as one!
