Nathan Fillion (a fine, fine fellow) makes us coffee, talks about his Canadian improv roots, an unmade pilot he wrote, getting Joss Whedon on Castle, and whether or not he’s going to buy Firefly. Plus, fan tweets answered!!! A well-rounded audio programme (British spelling for uppity emphasis) indeed.
This week, Dave, Devindra, and Adam respond to your feedback about The Amazing Spider-Man, join Team Margaret, and review one of the most thrilling documentaries of the year.
Comic Con preview night ends with the first public showing of some of the most anticipated new TV pilots of the year. This year, Alex, Dan, and Jeff have their eyes on 2 big projects: the new Kevin Bacon serial-killer-with-social-media thriller, The Following, and the post-technological-breakdown survivor series, Revolution. Are these new shows ones you should be watching, or another set of missable fizzles?
A mega VS of unprecedented proportion, as the guys continue to plow through the unranked movies list!
As huge fans of the animated series, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Alex, Dan, and Jeff were very enthusiastic about the first episode of The Legend of Korra when it debuted.

On this episode of The One Piece Podcast, we’re continuing our special [One Piece: Restart] event with an episode somewhat dedicated to the Strawhat’s navigator, Nami.

This episode, Steve, Dennis, and Firecrouch join us.
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…
