Who Is the Secret Cameo in DEADPOOL 2?



  1. Bender says:

    I’ve seen every episode of “Dexter” so the spoiler didn’t matter to me but you still should have gave a warning. It doesn’t matter how long something has been out. Not everyone has time to see EVERY movie, or TV show that comes out. For example, Chris: You’ve mentioned that you’ve never seen “The Wire”. So, in that case, you wouldn’t mind if I layed out a bunch of spoilers, then? After all, it’s been out for a while, right? I love you guys and have listened to countless hours of you talk but you need to fix this.

  2. Lacey says:

    So… Where’s the spoiler alert? Did I miss it? Cause I certainly did not miss the Dexter spoiler. I know I’m a couple seasons behind, I like to wait and watch them all when I get the box set. Now I know about Rita and I’m sad 🙁

  3. Fisher says:

    Yes! Defending Pit Bulls!!

  4. Manny says:

    You had J.B. on the show and didn’t ask her about Punisher War Zone. Good interview nevertheless.
    Keep it up!

  5. Jamie says:

    You spoiled Dexter!!! I didn’t know she had been killed. Granted this is two years old and I should have already seen it, but I’ve been stubbornly waiting (without success) for the rest of the series to come on Netflix watch instantly. A pox on your house! By the way Magwitch dies in Great Expectations. Doesn’t feel good does it?

  6. ComicGuy says:

    Did a deep Google search on Milo & Otis, couldn’t find anything on dead animals beyond the rumors that it happened.
    Loved the rest of the podcast.
    Marshmallows look like scabs when you overcook them, but they taste a tiny bit sweeter.

  7. Mark T. Manning says:

    The beginning of this episode sounds like the start to a sweet 80’s porno. Then, the podcast started in earnest. Unfazed, I looked my iPod in the eye and finished like a boss.

  8. Dan says:

    Nice to see someone other than me giving the “Buffy” movie some love! Right on!

  9. Alex says:

    Ive been extremely irrateted when I started listening to your podcast a week ago. I listern to them all through the day at work and can’t figure out why Mira’s voice sounds so familiar and then I realized it. …he sounds exactly like Bill Hader. No joke it’s actually really creepy, but I feel like that should mean he should be able to do all Bill Hader impressions. Please make him at least attempt impressions on the spot.

    Great interview! I loved Rita so much that I named my cat after her. And then her character was horribly murdered. Oops.

    Don’t you have a hot girlfriend Chris? Why did you go full Chris Farley on Julie Benz?
