The Jerks discuss a busy week in both the worlds of sports and pop culture, from the Houston Texans players squaring off with their team’s owner, to Yuli Gurriel’s racial slur at the World Series and the 49ers asking fans if they care whether the team wins. Plus, why Tom thinks Zachary Levi will be great as DC’s Shazam!, whether the Deathstroke movie will actually get made and our thoughts on a TON of proposed Hollywood franchises and reboots, from Contra to Ace Ventura and Major League. T2J — it’s so full of comedy, you’ll get indigestion!
Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan can’t seem to make up his mind about President Trump, and the Jerks are talking about it. Plus, some major upsets in college football, and some smack talk from the #LeagueOfJerks. We’re also taking a close look at all the big movie and TV trailers from the past week, including Justice League, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, The New Mutants, and the new season of Stranger Things. Those Two Jerks: We’re only doing this to try and get McDonald’s to bring back the Arch Deluxe!
It’s our 100th episode! The Jerks take a look back at some of their favorite moments, plus rundown the beginning of the Tebow-worship from the baseball community, Derrick Rose’s delusions about the New York Knicks’ chances, Suicide Squad’s big box office take, and the latest from the worlds of X-Men, Star Trek and Masters of the Universe! Those Two Jerks — Keeping it 100 since 2013!
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!
The Sus-Man’s Mets are still playing baseball in October, but are they in the way of the Cubs and their destiny? Plus, the NFL is just the worst (ask Cam Heyward) and the Head Ball Coach hangs up his visor (for now). The Jerks also run down the big Fantastic Four non-trade non-story, the Hulk showing up in the next Thor movie, and the big mistake Robert Kirkman may have made with The Walking Dead. Those Two Jerks–Like Carl Grimes, we don’t stay in the house, either!
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!
Suspension for Tom Brady (from the NFL), fan hate for LeBron (from voters in a poll), and shade for A-Rod (from his former teammate). Plus, comic book TV show and movie news galore, from Supergirl to Civil War and New Mutants, and why that photo from the set of Preacher pisses Ric off. It would take 7,000 bowls of those other podcasts to equal the total fiber content of one bowl of Those Two Jerks!
