It’s our first regular episode of 2018! We’re talking about UCF’s claim to college football’s national championship and the broken Power 5 Invitational Playoff — er, College Football Playoff — system, plus the Oakland Raiders playing fast and loose with the Rooney Rule in their hiring of Jon Gruden, and the promised shakeup at Warner Bros. happens with regard to the DC Comics movies. T2J in 2018: What did you think was going to happen?
The Jerks break down a lot of big news, from the Yankees trading for baseball’s top home run hitter, to the vicious hit on Texans quarterback Tom Savage (and what happened later), and Ronda Rousey likely joining the WWE. Plus, we discuss Disney buying 21st Century Fox, a big shakeup at DC Films and Quentin Tarantino possibly directing a Star Trek movie! T2J: A major acquisition for any mobile device!
The Jerks break down whether Tim Tebow will get called up to the majors this year, juiced baseballs in MLB, and Mayweather and McGregor’s tour de insults. Plus, all the geeky news from D23 Expo (Tron ride! Star Wars hotel! Marvel land!), the latest on “The Batman,” and a remembrance of George A. Romero and Martin Landau. Comedy, tragedy, gallows humor, poop jokes — we have it all!
Football’s back, and the Jerks are not at a loss for words (Are they ever?)! We’re breaking down Week 1 of the NFL, why college football rankings are a sham this early in the season, the beginning of Tim Tebow’s time as a Met, and the Chris Benoit movie. Plus, a look at the “lightening up” of the DC Comics movies, Tom has a crackpot theory involving the Flash movie, and the Jerks talk Star Trek’s 50th Anniversary. T2J: Going strong in our second century (of episodes)!
The Jerks have a nice laugh at the expense of Taylor Heinicke, Tim Tebow and Chris Sale. Plus, they break down UFC 201, recap San Diego Comic-Con, and review Batman: The Killing Joke. It’s the podcast for people who thought Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow had some redeeming qualities!
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!
Reports of their deaths were greatly exaggerated! The Jerks return with an outsider’s review of Super Bowl 50, a discussion of Johnny Manziel and Peyton Manning’s woes, and predictions for the new MLB season. Plus, Hollywood learns the wrong lesson from Deadpool’s success, something lame in the neighborhood from the new Ghostbusters, and why Fuller House pisses Tom off. T2J: Back by No One’s Demand!
