Matt and Drew are fykin’ back for more with 2015’s MYTHICA: THE NECROMANCER! We’re still not sure how to pronounce Jake Stormoen’s name, The Red Thorns are the hardest-rockin’ band in all the land, beetle gods and half-elf rogues don’t like sand because it’s coarse and it gets everywhere. Plus, Drew busts out some Swedish history…but only briefly.
Matt and Drew discuss some of the recent television (and not so television, just long-form multi-part series viewed on various platforms) shows they watch and enjoy.
WARNING: none of the shows are fantasy. Generally spoiler-free discussions of Channel Zero: Candle Cove; Stranger Things; American Horror Story; Turn: Washington’s Spies; and Westworld.
Matt and Drew fall through a hole in the earth and into 1995’s A KID IN KING ARTHUR’S COURT! The Other Spam Chronicles, Merlin’s head in a well, sooooo much product placement and medieval metalheads. Plus, Drew lays out a compelling case for “ponytail equals ’90s bad guy.”
Matt and Drew celebrate Halloween with 2013’s HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS! SOOO EDGY, Pinhead’s sister, that’s not how diabetes works and Luke and Leia relationships. Plus, Drew devotes a large portion of the episode to building things, making patterns and drawing pictures with Halloween candy.
Matt and Drew wish that 1983’s HUNDRA was more of the Conan knock-off it appeared to be at first glance! Rape, more rape, even more rape and a blue horse. And rape. Plus, Drew plots out a modern Hundra remake.
Matt and Drew return to the land of Fantasia with 1990’s THE NEVERENDING STORY II: THE NEXT CHAPTER! The Spam Chronicles, new actors in old roles, Wambo: Fiwst Bwood Pawt 2 and huntin’ the purple buffalo. Plus, Drew’s fear of facelessness rears its head once again.
Another outtakes episode! This time, the cuts in question come from our third episode, Willow!
For International Podcast Day, Matt and Drew watch a movie whose goofiness is of mythic proportions, 1983’s HERCULES! Greek Jesus, X-Men villains, James Tiberius Kirkules and Circe The Sorceress sells seashells by the seashore. Plus, Drew feels the need to point out Matt’s spurring and sloonerisms more than once.
Matt and Drew puff the magic dragon with 2011’s YOUR HIGHNESS! Tommy Wiseau explanations, describing comedy is hard, McGuffin explanations and a heady discussion on the state of modern fantasy. Plus, Drew comes up with a pretty great tooth-related pun.
Matt and Drew…what? More dragons?! Yes, with 2004’s DARK KINGDOM: THE DRAGON KING! Sexy Saxons, Germanity to the max, heretofore unexplained and/or unrevealed martial arts prowess and Krispy Kriem. Plus, Drew knows the difference between an iguana and a komodo dragon better than Matt does.
