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!
The Jerks discuss the end of the Legion of Boom, with the Seahawks cutting Richard Sherman, Kevin Love opening up about mental illness and Mackenzie Dern’s accent. Plus, more discussion of Shazam’s costume, the early backlash against Ready Player One (sight unseen) and a lightning round of TONS of movie news! T2J: We’re (pretty) sure Rosey Grier is still alive!
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!
It’s our annual Comic-Con Special! We’re breaking down some of the biggest stories of this year’s Comic-Con International: San Diego, from the first footage of Spielberg’s Ready Player One to the new Spawn movie (for real, they swear), plus all the big announcements from Marvel and DC about their upcoming films. As a bonus, find out which of the Jerks doesn’t know much about microphones! T2J and SDCC: they go together like PB and J!
Does Big Papi belong in the Hall of Fame? He thinks he does. Also, a new challenge for Ronda Rousey, the long-awaited #ChipBattle, our review of the latest edition of Out of the Park Baseball, and the Jerks’ takes on the Deadpool costume, Spielberg directing Ready Player One, and the return of The X-Files. T2J: Providing 4,000% of your daily allowance of hilarity!
