It’s here, at last! Ric does a blow-by-blow recap of Mayweather vs. McGregor, we break down the Kyrie Irving trade, and sort through all of the HUGE DC Comics movie news (Scorsese and Phillips doing a Joker movie?!). Plus, why Pandora: The World of Avatar pisses Tom off. T2J: Still waiting for the Robert Zemeckis-helmed Booster Gold movie starring Channing Tatum!
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!
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!
There’s a whole lot of butthurt in the sports world! From Aaron Rodgers’ butthurt over Jordy Nelson’s injury, Jay Gruden’s over his ever-expanding butt, Steelers fans over Michael Vick, or Joe Girardi over Carlos Gomez. Plus, NINE SECONDS of The Force Awakens breaks the Internet, hype over Jared Leto’s Joker performance, panic at DC Comics, and Fear the Walking Dead. Those Two Jerks: Double the grouchiness, double the fun!
You can send a probe to Pluto for less than what it costs to build a new NFL stadium, but you can get this episode for free and learn about both! Plus, a recap of the MLB All-Star Game, the Jerks riff on The Espys, and the latest on Fedor Emelianenko’s comeback. We’re also talking about Warner Brothers’ contempt for the very Suicide Squad fans whose money they want, Jesse Eisenberg’s sense of “hyperbole,” and we examine how the hell this Last Starfighter television series will incorporate virtual reality technology. It’s Jerk-tastic!
Luke Ridnour had a bad week, but the Jerks sure didn’t! We’re talking the rash of fireworks injuries in the NFL, UFC 189, and a version of baseball our fight sports correspondent can get behind. Oh, right, there was also COMIC-CON this week! Complete coverage of all the big news, including the Star Wars panel, that Batman v. Superman trailer, and the Deadpool footage. Plus, Unicron talks about that Ghostbusters photo, and we rundown the week in non Comic-Con geek news! T2J: We make the tasteless fireworks jokes, so you don’t have to!
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!
