T’was the day after Christmas, and all through the ‘Net, not a podcast was playing, at least not yet! The geeks and the gamers all had their new swag, so much great stuff they can’t help but brag. From consoles and pirates and a bottle of rum, it’s time for your earholes to have lots of fun. Your hosts Rob and Matt, probably tired and drunk, are here to chit-chat about pointless junk. So, lend them your ears and stick around the joint; it’s a new Useless Drivel, the podcast without a point!
Have you ever been so excited for something that it actually turns out to as awesome as you had hoped for? Really?? Well, then you’re either full of crap, or your Matt. Join in on the rambling insights of your hosts, Robert and Matt, as they talk about everything from food and animal STDs to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and miniatures. It may be informative, it could be laugh inducing, and it might possibly be entertaining but we can definitely guarantee it’ll be a whole earful of Useless Drivel!
It’s that time, everyone! The Monkeys have broken out of their cages at To-Ag Studios and are now running amok all around the Internetz! From the awesomely epic to the mildly offensive, join us this week as we go uncaged and take over your bandwidth with another hour of good times! So, for your own protection, avoid marriage, get yourself back to school, and get yourself exorcised as you prepare for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
Are you exhausted? Because we sure are! 2012 turned out be a geek’s best friend and it didn’t matter what your nerdgasm of choice was, either! Be it movies, gaming, television, comics, or whatever else, 2012 surely did deliver… and there are absolutely no signs that 2013 is going to do any less. Hell, it’s probably going to do more! Join us this week as we gather around the mics and discuss what “got our geek” the most in the past year. Prioritize your superheroes, stock up on convention passes, and be sure to try out a bit of the meatloaf as you settle in for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
I don’t have any form of cable television and my antenna is a bit iffy, so when I’m looking for random fluff television I have to look to Hulu. Amongst the Modern Families and Communities I found a little gem by the name of Spy. Originally airing on Sky 1 in the U.K. Spy is a 6 episode series about Tim Elliot (Darren Boyd) ne’er-do-well single father who mistakenly walks in on an entry test for MI5.
During the test The Examiner (Robert Lindsay) becomes enamored with Tim and offers him a job within MI5 as a spy recruit. This of course leads to a number of interesting situations in which Tim is completely incapable of handling and yet some how comes out ahead.
The rest of the cast of characters include Caitlin (Rebekah Staton); the love interest, Judith Elliot (Dolly Wells); the evil ex-wife, Marus Elliot (Jude Wright); the annoyingly smug child, and Philip (Tom Goodman-Hill); Judith’s new boyfriend who may have a crush on Tim. It is with these characters that we follow Tim throughout his home life where his wife is doing everything possible to get custody of their son, and his son is being an annoyingly smug little brat (I hate the kid).
I may be making Spy sound a bit dull, but it is a very well written, funny, and fun show that can help cleanse the palate of heavier fair such as Walking Dead or Game of Thrones. I give Spy 12 donkey shows out of 5 ski masks.
While I enjoy a number of great television shows, there are only a few that I will go back to and watch the same episodes again and again. One of those shows is Archer on the FX Network.
Mustaches and underwear, if that's wrong I don't want to be right.
Archer follows ISIS ( International Secret Intelligence Service) agent Sterling Malory Archer codename Duchess as he goes out on missions throughout the world and as he has to deal with more domestic matters such as dealing with the motley crew that makes up the rest of the ISIS agency.
It's way worse than it looks
Archer is essentially what James Bond would be if you add Sean Connery’s attitude with Austin Powers ineptitude. He is a booze hound and womanizer, but in the funniest way possible. He has a penchant for outing himself on missions just in the hopes of impressing a girl and he will call operatives in deep cover just for confirmation.
What the? I don't even ...
I’m a horrible writer and reviewer, but take my advice and watch this show, it is currently on Netflix and fairly cheap on Amazon. You will not be disappointed.
