    Should have just jumped ahead an episode before posting on last week’s episode.  The mic sounds much better.  I’m curious what the fix was.  Different Room?  Mic Placement? Compression settings?  We may never know…. 

  2. Stephen says:

    Having problems with downloading this episode, iTunes says the file is “corrupted or a format iTunes can’t play” and I tried to download it from here and the Libsyn RSS page, both just lead to a blank page in my browser.

  3. James says:

    Sorry Kumail and Emily, but Felony is the name of a porn star.

  4. Nikki says:

    I was actually pleasantly surprised by the Fantastic 4 trailer. I really like when comic book movies can successfully ground themselves in realism a la Man of Steel. I was very apprehensive when this movie was announced but have higher hopes for this movie now that I’ve seen the trailer. And Ioan Gruffudd was actually one of the only things I liked about the mid 2000s F4 movies, along with Galactus :)—-You know what 90s commercial(s) always stick in my head – the Nerf gun commercials. IT’S NERF OR NOTHING

  5. Stephanie says:

    What was the name of the co-op game that kumail and Emily talked about at the beginning of the show? A side-scroller indie game? They will often talk about a game and only say the name at the beginning. I get interested in the discussion. But miss the name of the game. 

  6. HereToStay says: The commercial I remember the most is this one, most because they used The Butthole Surfers for it! I thought it was the coolest SNES commercial ever!

  7. Wildride says:

    “Astronauts Only is Ass-Tro-Naughty.” – The advertisers of the movie Astronauts Only apologize for this slogan. Those responsible have been sacked. Not fired: Tackled extremely hard by large men in plastic padding.

  8. Russell says:

    Evolve looked pretty intriguing to me too, but after watching Jimquisition’s “How Evolve Fell Down The Bullshit Tree”. Unless we want these kind of shitty marketing and sales trends to continue, it may be worth thinking over if it’s worth a purchase to you guys or not.
