Grid Talk: 07 – The Force Awakens

Grid Talk is back after a month’s absence to bring your Episode 07 all about Episode VII! That’s right, The Grid Daily is bringing Star Wars The Force Awakens discussions to the podcast. This week, the cast of Screen Heroes is joined by prop builder and Grid Daily contributor, Jon Czerkwinski as well as the other half of the Super Sirens, Hillz. We talk everything The Force Awakens which includes a ton of spoilers as we discuss plot points, characters, costumes, possible connections to canon and old Expanded Universe content, and more. The Force Awakens has crushed box office records and brought tears to the eyes of many. Now it’s time to sit back, listen to what we liked and what we took issue with, and of course, let the Wookiee win. Here’s Grid Talk Episode 07.

Grid Talk: 07 – The Force Awakens

SH S1E3 – Deadpool’s Apocalypse

In Episode 03 of Screen Heroes we talk about the new X-Men: Apocalypse trailer along with our thoughts on the soon to release Deadpool film.

This past week, FOX released the first trailer and actual footage from the upcoming Marvel Comics-based film, X-Men: ApocalypseApocalypse is the sequel to the 2014 film, X-Men: Days of Future Past which saw our mutant heroes fighting for the future with the help of Wolverine. Apocalypse takes place in the 80s with our younger mutant heroes a little bit older. Raven appears to be a good guy now as well as a lot less blue plus Magneto once again pushes the limits of his friendship with Professor X who… actually becomes bald at some point in the film! My favorite shot in the whole trailer.

After breaking down the first X-Men: Apocalypse trailer, we switch gears to a more controversial and adult Marvel Comics character, Deadpool. The new Deadpool film is slated for a February 12th release and looks to be a perfect role for once DC Comics superhero actor, Ryan Reynolds.

Also, don’t forget that we’ve done some re-branding! We are now The Grid Daily, so follow us on Twitter @grid_daily and Instagram @griddaily or hit up our main website griddaily.com.

SH S1E3 – Deadpool’s Apocalypse

SH S1E2 – Legends of the Flarrow-Verse

This week on Screen Heroes, we switch to the (DCEU) DC Comics Extended Universe to breakdown The CW’s Flarrow crossover for 2015. Since the launch of The Flash, The CW has taken advantage of its connected DC universe to bring us fun crossover events from a single character all the way up to major plot points. This year was no different. The CW brought us our Flarrow crossover last week with The Flash episode “Legends of Today” and Arrow episode “Legends of Yesterday”.  These episodes brought new characters to the Flarrow-verse, which include heroes Hawkgirl (Ciara Renée)  and Hawkman (Falk Hentschel) along with Legends of Tomorrow main villain, Vandal Savage (Casper Crump). Episode 02 of Screen Heroes is focused on breaking down these two episodes along with what we’ve seen in the Legends of Tomorrow trailer. We’ll discuss the overall plot, what we liked, what we didn’t, and what we’d change if The CW handed over the reigns.

SH S1E2 – Legends of the Flarrow-Verse

SH S1E1 – MCU: The Good with the Bad

Welcome to the first episode of Screen Heroes, a new superhero themed podcast series from The Grid: A Sci-Fi Frontier. Screen Heroes will cover everything we see on the big and small screen dealing with superheroes. That means the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), the DC Comics Extended Universe (DCEU), and anything else production companies throw at us.

The premiere of Screen Heroes is being dual published on Grid Talk’s feed, so everyone who listens in to our original series will also be able to listen to our first episode of Screen Heroes. While we are not on iTunes yet, we will be soon!

In our first episode, we’ll kick things off by discussing the pros and cons of the MCU. What is good about the massive connected universe? What are the pitfalls of such a far reaching group of franchises?

After listening, contact us letting us know your thoughts on the MCU. What do you like most about it? What do you dislike about it? You can reach us on Twitter, Facebook, email, or you can comment on the article on our website.

We’ve got a lot in store, so listen in, stay tuned, and thanks for joining us for Screen Heroes.

Grid Talk: 06 – DCEU Rumors

This week, we sit down to talk about all of the rumors circling the various DCEU films. The DCEU, for those who don’t know, is the DC Comics Extended Universe which includes the upcoming films like Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, and Justice League: Part 1 but also The CW shows Arrow, The Flash, and the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow. Various rumors are swirling around the big screen productions including who Lex Luthor actually is, what Zod is doing in the Dawn of Justice trailer, when Wonder Woman will take place, and what might happen with The Justice League Dark. We grab some of the biggest rumors and talk about how much we think the rubber hits the road going all the way up to Shazam and forward to the untitled Flash and Aquaman films.

After listening to our DCEU rumors, hit us up on Twitter @GridTalkTweets to discuss what you think of the DCEU so far and which rumors you think might go a different way.

Grid Talk: 06 – DCEU Rumors

Grid Talk: 05 – Dark Skywalker

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens just over a month away, we break down our thoughts and expectations for the iconic character, Luke Skywalker. Due to his absence in any promotional material, trailers, posters, etc. many think that there might be a twist on the origin trilogy’s hero. Has Luke Skywalker turned to the Darkside in the events after Return of the Jedi? He has gone into hiding as the only known trained Force user left in the galaxy far, far away? Perhaps he has become the new Lord of the Sith, since the only way to become one is to kill the previous. We discuss all of these possibilities plus a few more including a dive into his father, Anakin Skywalker and how his turn away from Vader at the end of the trilogy might affect his son’s choices. So sit back, grab some blue milk and enjoy the ride.

Grid Talk: 05 – Dark Skywalker

Grid Talk: 04 – Star Trek Horizon

This week, on Grid Talk, I was able to sit down, well sit online, with the main man behind Star Trek Horizon, Tommy Kraft. The many of many hats and talents was nice enough to come on and answer my questions about his Horizon project, making a Star Trek fan film, and the overall process he’s been going through over the past few years. What is Star Trek Horizon? It is a fan film set after season 4 of Star Trek Enterprise during the Romulan War. For those who watched the series, many were disappointed that Enterprise never got to the Romulan War, well, Horizon is here to show us a bit about that time period on-board the NX-04 Discovery, another NX Class starship like Enterprise. So sit back, relax, and polarize the haul platting, it’s time for Grid Talk.

After listening, please stop by StarTrekHorizon.com. He’s got two different trailers available to watch as well as a gallery of photos. Also, if you’d like to help support Tommy’s ambitious Star Trek Horizon project, he’s got a PayPal donation page setup on his website in the project’s post-Kickstarter era.

Keep an eye out for Star Trek Horizon in February 2016.

Grid Talk: 03 – Collectibles and Subscription Boxes

This week, Grid Talk is all about collecting, collectibles, and subscription boxes. We break down what we love to collect. Then, we take a walk down memory lane to discuss what got us started down the collectibles path. After that, we break down the recent surge in subscription box offerings including a dive into LootCrate as well as Funko’s growing line of offerings thanks to the Marvel Collector Corps, upcoming Star Wars themed Smuggler’s Bounty subscription, and the announced but unnamed DC Comics box. With nerd culture becoming so mainstream and major franchises like Marvel, DC, and Star Wars seeing insane amounts of money and success, collectibles are becoming higher quality, harder to come by, and more varied.

What do you like to collect? Do you collect action figures? Comic books? What are your thoughts on subscription boxes? Have you tried any of the non-collectibles services that provide food, clothing, or pet items? Comment below!

Grid Talk: 02 – Back to the Future

Today marks the day Marty and Doc traveled to in the future in the 1989 sequel, Back to the Future Part II. This year also marks the 30th anniversary of the Back to the Future trilogy and franchise. To honor the franchise, we sit down to talk about the characters, cast, story lines, and future tech we’ve all grown to love over the years. We take a special interest in the 2015 Back to the Future Part II envisioned, comparing it to what we got… still wondering where our hoverboards are. But, while the shark still looks fake, it’s still part of one of our most beloved trilogies. So sit back, grab some plutonium and don’t let anyone call you chicken. It’s time for Grid Talk.
