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!
We’re taking a look at the start of NFL training camps, Derrick Rose setting up shop in Cleveland, and Hugh Freeze setting up shop in Sports Hell. Plus, all the news we missed from Comic-Con, a possible Oscar (!) campaign for Wonder Woman, and Batman goes hunting for “wabbits.” Be vewwy vewwy kwiet — we’re hunting for laughs!
Our first ever Mini-Episode focuses entirely on all the HUGE news from this year’s Comic-Con International: San Diego! Hear the Jerks’ takes on the trailers for Dr. Strange and the X-Men spinoff series Legion, plus the big news about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok (Gladiator Hulk!) and Brie Larson being cast as Captain Marvel. They’re also taking a look at the trailers for Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman and Justice League, plus breaking down the news about the new Star Trek TV series, Discovery! It’s Comic-Con-a-licious!
The Jerks explain why MLB’s “Just Stay Open” plan is backfiring, why John Lackey needs to chill out, and why Reche Caldwell belongs in Sports Hell. Plus, big Star Trek news on the big and small screens, DC Films gets its continuity master, and why a Booster Gold movie could save the whole DC Cinematic Universe. It’s all here in an Extended Cut of the latest T2J!
The Jerks condemn a new person to Sports Hell (spoiler alert: it’s Greg Hardy), laud one of the all-time NBA greats (spoiler alert: it’s Tim Duncan), discuss the new Star Wars trailer (spoiler alert: it’s awesome), and give their takes on the new Star Trek series (no spoilers-hah!). T2J: Not as cool as Ryan Reynolds in a Deadpool suit, but way uglier!
Suspension for Tom Brady (from the NFL), fan hate for LeBron (from voters in a poll), and shade for A-Rod (from his former teammate). Plus, comic book TV show and movie news galore, from Supergirl to Civil War and New Mutants, and why that photo from the set of Preacher pisses Ric off. It would take 7,000 bowls of those other podcasts to equal the total fiber content of one bowl of Those Two Jerks!
The first 12 issues of the book weren’t selling, so we did what the comic companies do: we rebooted! Listen to the all-new (not really), all-exciting (sure, whatever), all-action-packed (not so much) Those Two Jerks!
