GH39 – BlizzCon 2017 Recap

SMT04: Brak Show, Oblongs, Special K

This week is a little different than previous episodes. Once a month, we’re doing prime time cartoons instead of our usual Saturday Morning or after school fare. Jeremy starts things off with late night [Adult Swim] classic, The Brak Show Starring Brak and Danielle goes with WB gem, The Oblongs.

We also start things off with a discussion of the cartoon career of Mark Hamill, including a very meta Justice League short that was released recently. We also go into a Nicktoon creator getting fired for sexual harassment. Very adult stuff.

The cereal this week, to go with the theme of being very adult, is a limited apple cinnamon flavor of Special K. This was Jeremy’s pick even though, as he learned doing the research, is a cereal targeted at weight-conscious women.

Are you a fan of The Brak Show or The Oblongs? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter @HeroesPodcasts!

RR06 – Space Whales and Time Travel

It wouldn’t be Star Trek without a convoluted time travel plot, which Discovery delivers with episode 7, “Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad.” This week, we are joined by cosplayer and Trek aficionado Michael Nguyen (sitting in for Derreck). We start the episode with a discussion of our favorite time travel themed episodes with a TNG classic and a couple of chroniton-packed DS9 episodes.

Then, we take our discussion to the details and plot points of “Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad,” as well as some good-natured griping about the current state of pop culture criticism regarding Discovery. We discuss the music of Wyclef Jean, beer pong, and Trojan space whales. We also highlight our favorite Staments line so far, “As days go, this is a weird one.”

Join our three-man crew for a journey that will span decades, every episode, every series, every movie, and every possible timeline no matter how small.

GH38 – Super Mario Odyssey First Impressions

SMT03: Hey Arnold, 2 Stupid Dogs, Cocoa Pebbles

Another Saturday morning is here, so come down in your PJs, grab a bowl of Cocoa Pebbles and watch a couple old school toons with Jeremy and Danielle. On this week’s show, we give a quick rundown of some of our favorite series so listeners can get a sense of what we’re into in a broad sense. We’ve re-written those lists about 30 times since recording, the ones we listed were off the dome, but it’s an accurate cross section of what we’re into toon-wise. Danielle kicks off this week with is S1, Ep19 of Nicktoon classic Hey Arnold titled “Magic Show” where Arnold puts on an embarrassing magic show that leaves Helga questioning her role in the universe and things keep getting dark when Arnold prepares to die in “Twenty Four Hours to Live.”

Jeremy keeps the toon train rolling with a little known fave, 2 Stupid Dogs S1, Ep13 “Love Doctors” where the dogs help Kenny find love, “Voodoo Goat” where Secret Squirrel takes on a goaty foe, and finally “Cat!” where Little Dog struggles with his greatest fear.

We venture past the haunted land of monster cereals this week with a trip to Bedrock for a couple of delicious bowls of Cocoa Pebbles.

RR05 – Long Distance Katra

Family has been a cornerstone of Star Trek since The Original Series. In the spirit of Star Trek: Discovery Episode 06 “Lethe”, we first discuss our favorite family-centric episodes of Star Trek. As luck would have it, we each picked an episode from The Next Generation.

Then, we take our discussion to the details and plot points of “Lethe” but not before providing our spoiler-free thoughts on the episode. We discuss Captain Lorca’s mental state, the concept of a long distance Katra, and just how we feel about the continuing theories of Lt. Tyler’s origins.

Join our three-man crew for a journey that will span decades, every episode, every series, every movie, and every possible timeline no matter how small.

GH37 – Games in Need of a Sequel

SMT02: Beetlejuice, Home Movies, Boo-berry

Saturday Morning Tooncast is back for an extra spooky Halloween-themed episode 2! Early in the podcast to rely on contrived themes? Maybe. But we did it anyway. For you. On this week’s show, we will be discussing some hot toon news including a new Hey Arnold movie. Jeremy’s toon pick is S1, Ep11 of Beetlejuice “Prince of the Neitherworld” where BJ trades Lydia for a job as Neitherworld Court Jester and Danielle counters with a Halloween episode of Home Movies, S3, Ep13 “Coffins and Cradles” where Brandon’s step mother interrupts costume party plans to have Brandon’s half-brother.

We continue our look at Halloween monster cereals with Boo-berry and introduce our rating system. We’re not just discussing cereal anymore, we’re rating them! One to ten spoons. How many will it get? You’ll have to listen to find out!

SH S4E15: Jim Henson Spotlight

Jim Henson has brought us countless worlds populated by incredible puppets. Whether it was in Star Wars with the Jedi Master Yoda, the entire cast of The Muppets, Sesame Street, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, or any number of other films and TV series, Henson productions brought to life non-human characters that, in many cases, seemed more alive than their living counterparts.

This week, we bring in a NECA sculpting expert to talk about Jim Henson’s productions, styles, relationships with other creators, and movie special effects in general.
