234 - British Invasion

This week, your friends Count Vardulon and DM watch yet another Tommy Brunswick movie. They also take in two films from across the pond one of which is much, much better than the other. Tune in to find out who got renewed and who shouldn't have been green-lit. Click here for comics!


  1. I'm having a problem with the love of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. everyone seems to have. The show is OK at best. None of the characters are interesting. Coulson is like most movie monsters, he better if you know he's around but isn't on screen all the time. As someone who wasn't expecting a superhero show, I still find it disappointing TV. Also except for Alias, I think most of those Netflix shows are based on comics that were barely popular in the 70s. Iron Fist was an attempt to cash in on the popularity of Kung Fu flicks, and the weird resurgence in the popularity of Fu Manchu (who was a major character in that comic until marvel lost the rights to the character) and Luke Cage was an attempt to cash in on the Blaxploitation hype at the time. They may have been part of the Marvel Knights lines but they were much more popular in the late 70s early 80s. They're probably trying to hook the 80s nostalgia nerve of kids now a days.

  2. Was Fu Manchu all over Iron Fist? I know he was central to Master of Kung-Fu, but I've never read much Iron Fist. Oh, Luke Cage - they came this close to calling you 'Black Power Man' before copping out at the last minute. Which was probably for the best, in the long run.
