We didn’t intend for this to be a special April Fool’s Day episode, but it turned out that way. The Jerks are talking about the new Alliance of American Football (and why it’s better than the XFL), the 76ers well-placed trust in “the system” and Beer League hero Scott Foster. Plus, DC’s next crossover, some Green Lantern Corps news and why Meryl Streep is NOT replacing Carrie Fisher in Star Wars. Plus, a prize if you can catch all the references (and tell us what they’re referencing)! T2J: More Easter eggs and references than Ready Player One — almost.
The Jerks discuss Ric’s favorite team landing the top NFL free agent prize (Kirk Cousins), lament the demise of their March Madness brackets (and explain why it’s wrong to enter multiple brackets in the same pool) and work through the details of a strange new rule in Minor League Baseball. Plus, Ava DuVernay is tapped to direct DC’s New Gods movie at Warner Bros., but the Jerks think it won’t get made and the first public screening of Ready Player One divides audiences and we think we know why! Those Two Jerks: The Mission to Civilize continues!
MLB’s quest to “Just Stay Open” continues as Spring Training begins and the league brings in more rule changes. Plus, WWE reduces its number of Pay-Per-View events and Tom experiences indie wrestling for the first time. The Jerks also talk about Black Panther, its record-breaking weekend and the trolls faking racially-motivated attacks at screenings of the movie. We also take a peek at the teaser for Cobra Kai, the new TV series that continues the story of The Karate Kid! T2J: So played out, it’s like we’re our own reboot/sequel series!
The Jerks break down the flurry of moves the Cavs made at the NBA trade deadline, Josh McDaniels leaving the Colts at the altar and the lack of Olympic excitement. Plus, was the DC-Black Panther smear campaign a frame job? We’re also talking about a bunch of other DC movie and TV news and discussing the latest trailers for Deadpool and Venom! Download, listen, buy the t-shirt!
The Jerks recap the good, the bad and the manure-filled Eagles win in the Super Bowl, plus the best and worst commercials, and a rundown of the big movie trailers from the game. Plus, what’s happening to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and a group of DC fans gets shut down trying to sink Black Panther. T2J: New logo, same great taste!
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!
The matchup is set for Super Bowl LII, and the Jerks are not happy about it. Plus, Paul Pierce’s pettiness, and did the NFL get revenge on Bob Costas? The Jerks also discuss the (needless) return of Superman’s red trunks (underwear on the outside … yay.), the new Flashpoint directing team and gloat about yet another correct prediction by Nostra-Dumb-Ass. T2J: We don’t like to be right all the time, yet here we are!
