'Moon Knight' Challenges Expectations, TIME's Bizarre 'Influential' Companies List, The High Cost of Attending Weddings

Season 8, Episode 14,  Apr 13, 07:04 PM

  • Ezra Miller is creating yet another headache for Warner Bros. and its major franchises - do we agree Fantastic Beasts is cursed at this point?
  • We've got a single recommendation across the panel this week: check out the new Marvel show on Disney+, 'Moon Knight.'
  • Our resident Marvel expert Marc makes a 'surprise' appearance on the show to review Moon Knight with us, and sheds some light on why Marvel is debuting lesser-known characters in its shows now.
  • How is Marvel doing updating its properties for the big and small screen? What lessons can other franchises take from their success?
  • We also review Time's 100 Most Influential Companies of 2022. While there is plenty to be celebrated in this list, there are a few head scratchers... *cough*NEXTDOOR*cough*
  • Amazon and Disney both made the Time 100 list, which presents a perfect opportunity for us to mention some other ways these giants have been making headlines in recent weeks.
  • Amazon warehouse employees in Staten Island voted to unionize - a first for Amazon, which has been notoriously anti-union.
  • Better late than never? Disney came out with a strong statement against the passage and implementation of Florida's 'Don't Say Gay' legislation. In response, Florida Republicans have publicly suggested stripping Disney of its special privileges of self-governance around its Orlando theme parks.
  • We hear from The Mouse himself, and he has a strong message for the Florida GOP.
  • Confessional: "I am so tired of spending so much money on other people's weddings. Am I the asshole?"
  • This week's recommendation is seeing alignment from the whole panel: Watch 'Moon Knight' on Disney+! As a bonus, check out the deep dives Marc and Durden77 have been doing into all things Marvel.

  • Are we the assholes? Each of the panelists bring their own real-life stories in which we might be kinda dickish...
  • Giving family ultimatums? Stealing money? Having fond memories coincide with the date of a national tragedy? Yikes!
  • Can kids be assholes? Maybe!
