It’s finally Friday, and just like every other Friday, we know you’re damn well ready to get the weekend started off right with what else, a brand-spanking new episode of the internet’s most mediocre podcast of them all! Join your hosts Matt and Robert this week as the discuss all sorts of good stuff. From the true struggles of middle class 80’s kids and video game trolls to spirited and uninformed debate on the comic book continuity, it’s an episode for the ages! So, do some jumping jacks, widen your doorways, and let it all hang out because it’s a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
Look! Up in the air! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a flying dude with more muscles than he knows what to do with! That’s right kiddos, the “Superhero Summer” continues as this week we discuss the new incarnation of pop-culture’s first heroic icon. We’re joined in-studio by our special three-peat guest – artist extraordinaire and comic book aficionado Dennis Salvatier! Be sure to ditch those red undies, work out your back-pecs, and practice punching people into ghosts as you prepare for a brand new super adventure on this week’s Monkey in the Cage!
As gamers and as geeks, we love the fantasy genre. We’ve spent countless hours reinventing ourselves around the table, rolling out polyhedral dice whilst performing heroic deeds and living out the plots and schemes within well-developed worlds filled with adventure and excitement. The opportunity to play Dungeons & Dragons is definitely one of the most rewarding aspects of the geek lifestyle, and it can also be one of the most expensive. If you’re a gamer or know someone who is, you’re well aware of the investment in gaming products one can make, followed by the investment in time and energy it takes to run a game as well. You would think that, given the attention and investment made by gamers and players the world round, the same could be said for the production of a film labelled with the name of one of the most storied gaming franchises ever.

Join us this week as we take time to review the Dungeons & Dragons movie released in 2000. While we admit that we are far from timely in watching and reviewing the film, we felt it was our duty as gamers to overlook our previous apprehensions and view the surprisingly-worse-than-we-thought train wreck that is based on our beloved game. Jump in your time machine and head back to Y2K with us as we review and recall all the reasons we never saw this movie in the first place!
