31 The Kang of Ophiocordyceps Unilateralis
Yeah, we’re looking looking at the past two Joel and Ellie shows to dig deep into the show versus the game. Sam is now on the gaming bandwagon of pain. Sam also gives Moze a spoiler-rich Q&A about that quantum leap Marvel film. Moze gets educated on a potential gem about werewolves.

30 The last of Ron Swanson (just don’t tell Otto)
We focus our efforts on the new show that everyone wants to talk about, you know the one, the Joel and Ellie show. The fleshing out of the game narrative is a challenge. Is this storytelling working or is Neil Druckman causing contention as he did with Naughty Dog’s franchise?

29 What Happened to The Last of Us in 2022?
Sam gets nuts with a look at what was good and what was challenged in 2022. We renegotiate our format to start talking about HBO’s “The Last of Us,” a potential palate cleanser for the dawn of 2023. #RIPJayBriscoe

28 Biff that Black Adam in the Peripheral
Can’t lie, this is a machine gun episode of the streams we have seen. Sam throws a wrench at Moze from NOLA. Moze has been building models which has slowed his intake of consumables. Moze is very drunk and excited about a totally new show on Amazon. PS Moze freaked out over Daredevil…

27 When Pounding Sand for Prey, Make Sure Your History is Correct
It is time for getting deep into many stories starting and closing. Sam and Moze blast through the shows that have excited us. Moze shows his toxic nature by pushing against the notion that Native American history should not be changed even when it involves predatory fictional aliens. Lock in and fire this Vulcan cannon of content.

26 Some Boys Are Nicer Than Others
Overlapping content streams are happening. There are great things and chaff. Sam and Moze take a look at a boy named Obi and another named Butcher. This one is full of hot takes straight out of the oven. Some my say we might have been accused of hate watching. They are wrong, we just make choices in the binge.

25 Licorice Flavored Multiversions
The boys are back with some hot takes on some of the streams of cinema popping out of the oven. Of course, there are some appetizers of episodic shows that Sam checked into… and Moze checked out of. Sit back, crack an Old Tuffy, and let’s find out who is the curmudgeon in the multiverse of sadness.

24 Shoot that Compound V! “The Boys” S3E1-3
Moze was in the Emerald Isle looking to the future while Sam was doing the powerful event of linking himself for life in wedlock. Let’s get freaking nuts with the best superhero show on the net.

23 The American Pastime
It is time for Sam and Moze to drop the needle on a few new streaming gems. With weddings and international travel we fell off the routine this episode, but aim to do better. We covered a diabolical new show, as well as a few that you may have thought succumb to covid morbidity.

22 Make Peace, Not Fett
Hey everyone no point in putting sugar on this, this is a NSFW hot cast. If you have a brittle constitution, just delete and no hard feelings. If you loved Mr. Fett goes to Tattooine you may not like what we say or how we say it.
If you were not a fan John Cena battling butterflies you are going to have a hard time choking down your drink. Moze and Sam have not gotten this rough on wax in a long time.

21 Sprinkle the Holland Booster Rockets
Zowie Wowie, it is a loaded episode of speculation and review. Moze and Sam take a hard look at how DCEU might be eating the lunch of the MCEU. They take a deep dive into the “Cena Verse” and make peace with it. Moze explains why, of all things, a lantern of emerald somehow made it into his viewing schedule.

20 The Matrixes of Spiders, Fett and Gillis but Don’t Look Up
Really the title says it all. No quippy title, just facts. Sam and Moze take it to the streets with a look at some of the past two weeks of content for your senses. Some of it stacked up pretty strong. Some of it was drenched in weak sauce. These are just the facts as we saw it.

19 Arrow to the Ghosts
Time for the guys to intervene and dam the stream for a moment. They take aim at that Marvel arrow show, people missing in space, and spectral exterminations. Moze also continues to hamper Sam’s train of thought with the magic soundboard.
November 15, 2021
18 A Finch Flying Over the Eternal Dunes
Time to talk about some of the bigger movies and shows that have released. Sam went out to see that new Marvel film that Moze had zero interest in. They talk that other big movie about sand and spice, you know the one. There was a hidden gem that caught the eye of both of our heroes—Apple TV+’s “Finch.” They deduced that a man, a dog and a robot can create a captivating story.

17 Babyfaces, Heels and the Closer
Finale time again for Sam and Moze. As things close off for the season we have some new series you might not have even heard about. Of course Moze tried to draw lines back to professional wresting and story writing this streaming season. Sam gave us a #CovidCinemaMinute shooting on two recent films you might want to venture out to enjoy.

16 What If a Soprano Could Sing?
The multiverse of channels got out of control and Sam and Moze were separated by a Chicago-sized gap. That means that we’re late to the dance, but we had a few drinks before we got here. There’s a load of great content out there that has surprised us lately! Here are our lists.

15 What if Shang Chi was…?
It has been too long, and Moze and Sam made up for it on this one. We took a look at the latest two episodes of “What if…?” just to make sure that the cartoon universes are stable. Then Sam makes a full-on sales call to convince Moze that the newest MCU film is better than what has come before. Both watchers also went down two very different streams to find some fixed points that might be worth your time.

14 Thanos Loves a Good Argument
Short show, as we take a look at the Wakandan Star Lord with a sprinkle of Santa Ted. Moze gives some recommendations on what you can consume if you have a short time—or a marathon duration of time.
August 12, 2021
13 What If a Polka Dot Could Kill?
Big stuff this week. The whole reason Sam and Moze started this new adventure. To watch, comment, and never interfere. “What If…” We also checked out that new James Gunn film.

12 Greyskull Powered Streaming
Lots of action and releasing this week. Some of it beyond polarizing, and some quiet and under the radar. Sam and Moze took a look at some old standards like a new “Grand Tour” installment, as well as exploring the hype and hysteria connected to “Masters of the Universe.” Moze was allowed time to flex his conspiracy muscles to “educate” Sam on some of the grey areas online.
July 27, 2021
11 Coast to Coast Reunion Tour
We’re back from the long hiatus that took Moze from the North Bay of California to the Triangle of North Carolina. Sam and Moze catch up with all the shows you’ve been watching and a few that you might have missed, on platforms you may not have thought to watch. Good thing your Watchers are here to stare directly into the streams.

10 A Quiet Loki Boy Summer
Oh boy, it’s been a while and we missed you. We’re taking a look at the first half of “Loki,” with perhaps the most honest and stripped-down criticism and praise we can muster. We got back to the theater as well, and had some popcorn with John Krasinski. He would not discuss any Reed Richards rumors. Sam pulls off the fastest review of FF9 on the internet to date. Moze fawns over his new favorite Netflix series that you might not have heard of, “Black Summer.”

9 Logan Paul Knocks Out Warlock
Crazy times abound and Sam and Moze visited theaters and took a look at some possible hidden gems that popped up on the pluses. They got to talk frankly about the possible future of Loki as the new “Quantum Leap.” Some we dismayed at the end of “MODOK,” but the guys see this as possibly the most family oriented of all Marvel properties. Fight us.
May 25, 2021
Look, no faffing around. We’re talking about the first half of “MODOK” on Hulu and the Netflix offering from Zack Snyder, “Army of the Dead.” Are these two worth the time? Yes… and no. Sorta. It depends. How’s that for definitive?

7 Bad Batching the Invincible Bucketheads
Talking “Star Wars” has gotten to be a mix of good and bad news this year, but there might be a North Star to look forward to. Sam and Moze take a look at where content matters and where it is created. We look at some “The Boys” season 3 news, and cap off final thoughts and speculation about “Invincible.”

6 Invincible Is Now All Elite!
Time to take a break from all this MCU TV noise until June and open up your viewing catalog. A great way to get a superhero fix is “Invincible,” currently streaming on Prime Video. Sam and Moze also take a look at stunt casting and some gems currently released on our favorite platforms. We’ve also got some consternating sports talk about the legitimacy of America’s favorite sports entertainment.

5 Kombat of the Captain in Winter
This is a packed episode, as Moze and Sam talk about films you may want to fit into your life. They also break down and grade how well Sam and Bucky succeeded in their efforts to solve the repopulation “blip” problems. What exactly were these conflicts, anyway? And what may have led to audience confusion?

4 Johnny Walker and Calls to His Ever-Growing Beard
Sam & Moze take a look at how a show can spark other, maybe bigger, conversations. With so much content, picking the wheat from chaff can be a challenge. Moze lays down a hammer as he pleads for you to take a multiverse gander at Calls on AppleTV+.

3 Piles of Bits Smothered in Content
There has been a bit of news this week, so we’ve plowed into it. Was “Godzilla vs. Kong” high art? Can a six-part show like “Falcon and Winter Solider” have time to create a sag in the middle of the season? All this and more covered on this week’s episode.
March 29, 2021
