The Jerks are back after a brief break, with their thoughts on making the MLB All-Star Game more exciting, Daniel Cormier’s big UFC championship win and his challenge from Brock Lesnar and T.O. being a baby about the Hall of Fame. Plus, we remember Steve Ditko, run down some superhero movie news about Spawn, the Joker movie and Black Widow and analyze Warner Brothers’ love for Djimon Hounsou. Those Two Jerks: Not fake news, but real news about fake things!
The Jerks discuss Anthony Rizzo calling for shortening the baseball season (#JustStayOpen), the “unavoidable” 82-0 high school baseball blowout and Daniel Cormier throwing serious MMA shade. Plus, Steven Spielberg dips his toe into the DC Comics waters, Smallville star Allison Mack gets arrested and why the #PurpleWall at Disney pisses Tom off. T2J: Hoping to be desirable enough to be pirated!
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!
Brock Lesnar has a little problem with his urine sample, unsettling new details about the Penn State-Jerry Sandusky scandal, and Tim Duncan’s legacy. Plus, the reaction to the new Ghostbusters, news from Star Wars Celebration (Thrawn!), and the latest big comic book “death.” T2J: The choice of a grouchy generation!
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!
