This title both accurately describes this episode of the Podcast, this episode of Go-Busters, this episode of Akibaranger, and possibly Megamax as well. Join us as we discuss the latest in Cards, Wizards, Wood Nymphs, and illusions. We’re like a regular game of D&D up in here. After the newds we move on to a very forked up Super Hero Time, featuring an “Oh Shit!” episode of Go-Busters, and our very own summary and discussion of Movie War Megamax, to take the place of Fourze, which ironically got pushed back because of golf. Let that one sink in for a while. There ALMOST wasn’t an Akibaranger 11, as some greater power (probably controlled by Jedimon and the Akiba Haters) tried to stop us from reviewing it! Fortunately, we fought the evil brain ticks and managed to both summarize and discuss! Wait a minute…no wonder Jedimon got written out of show to work in Europe…HE’S THE MASTERMIND BEHIND OUR ALMOST AKIBALESS EPISODE! Hopefully we can use the power of friendship, magic, and breasts to return Jedimon to his normal cooky self. Wish us luck! Oh yeah, Ramble Time’s slowly decaying form sticks around for Pokémon, ThunderCats (Sayonara…?), and Legend of Korra. We conclude with Facebook Question of the Bi-Weeklyness! Time to go cure Jedimon with breasts. Nyan nyan nyan nyan nyan…

This week on Operation Kino we’re donning elaborate wigs and singing songs into Malin Akerman’s ass as we review the new jukebox musical Rock of Ages. From there we get into a conversation about the recent flap over Lola Versus and its directors challenging the critics who didn’t like their movie, and talk about how independent filmmakers can engage with their audiences and fans without doing more harm than good. Before any of that, though, there’s a lightning round asking about Adam Sandler’s past work, and then tidbits, in which Da7e celebrates the all-powerful ear worm “Call Me Maybe” (which you’ll hear a lot on this episode), David celebrates the very different film Call Me Kuchu, Katey isn’t crazy about the season finale of Mad Men, and Patches takes a look at Indie Game: The Movie, thanks to a suggestion from listener Chris Cookson.
