Some of My Friends Read Comics 066 – Thor by Walt Simonson


If we’ve learned anything from this show, the best way to make a cool Thor comic is to take a non-human character and put Thor clothes on it. It worked with Frog Thor and it totally works with Beta Ray Bill.

We read his 1st appearance at the beginning of Walt Simonson’s classic run from the mid 80s in issues 337-343.

Thor also fights a dragon and changes his secret identity situation from unnecessary to still unnecessary.

Saturday Night Love S41E08 – Chris Hemsworth


It’s Hemsworth’s time!  Thor stops by 30 Rock for the second time this year to host Saturday Night Live!

Vince, Scott, and Doug Vader remember Toonces the Driving Cat, marvel at the Predator font in “No Time to Bleed”, and wish they could be as cool as Chris Hemsworth (even though he’s weird now).

Some of My Friends Read Comics 002 – Ultron Double-Feature

Elton John and Tim Rice with awards for song "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" - 1994 (67th)

There’s more than one way to skin an evil murderous robot. Vince, Chris, and Kia took a look back at a couple of classic Ultron stories written 30 years apart to see just how things have changed in the comic book world.

LISTEN in amazement as they discuss differences between the movies and the comics and try to wrap their heads around exactly what the heck is going on with the Avengers.

This episode: Avengers Vol. 1 #66-68 [1969], Avengers Vol. 3 #19-22 (Ultron Unlimited) [1999]

Next episode: Marvel’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters #20-24 [1979]

AMFARH 011 – Tim Allen vs. John Goodman


Because you DEMANDED it!

Every day, people beg us to do an episode about Tim Allen and John Goodman.  I don’t know why that iis, but it’s frequently the most requested episode.  Today, we’re finally gonna dive deep and determine – whose career is best: Tim Allen or John Goodman?

From their 90s sitcoms to their Pixar adventures and everywhere in-between, join all my friends to talk Allen and Goodman in this sure-to-be fan favorite episode!

Tuesday Morning Pod: Chris Hemsworth (Season 40, Episode 15)


Thor hosted this week’s Saturday Night Live, so that gives Scott, Vince, and featured player Kia ample time to talk about Thor’s muscles, Avengers minutiae, and ugly Hemsworth brothers.

This week’s best skit was the Hillary Clinton Cold Open.  That’s not to say that the episode was all downhill from the beginning.  It was just a nice, strong introduction to a new Kate McKinnon impression. Her Hillary should be fun going into the 2016 election season.

Oh, and Kia’s screener somehow missed the Beck Bennett/Kyle Mooney “Reality House”.  So I’ve included it below for him.
