Three Hundred and Two

scwarscov2015001_dc26_1_small_1What will happen to Speedball? This crucial question and more are posed in this week’s exciting, even-numbered edition of The Zero Room! We discuss Jose’s recent successful PC build, look at the expansive cast of Captain America: Civil War, and examine the upcoming television season now that upfronts are upon us. Oh, and apparently they’re killing the Marvel Universe. So look out!

301 exists, too, but we didn’t put a blog post up. Deal with it.

Three Hundred

300

 

It has turned out to be a sort of inauspicious anniversary this time around. Both Doug and I have been utterly swamped with work and life to put together something special for our 300th episode (Heck! Even this post is late).

In a way this is kind of emblematic of the show that we put on week after week. Two friends talk about the things that excite and interest them. No frills. No Gimmicks. Nice and simple. Just the way we like it.

So for those of you who have been with us these last 7 years. Thank you for your support and your time. I don’t know how long this thing will keep going, but thanks for joining us on the ride.

Two Hundred and Ninety-Fate

Absolute JusticeWe’ve been doing podcasts, but not posting here about them. Which is fine, I think, because no one really reads this blog. Everyone just seems to download the podcast and listen to it without going through this website. If you’re reading this, though, thank you! We paid for this domain name and, by God, we’ll use it.

This week saw us recording in the middle of the Heroes of the Dorm tournament, so prepare for a little Heroes of the Storm talk. Jose loved Daredevil, which I have not yet seen. So that one’s a little one-sided. Then there’s a bunch of casting stuff, a few writers writing things, and yet another cool Steam Early Access game. Enjoy!

This is just only one example of how far the legacy of Leonard Nimoy’s Mr. Spock reached. In the middle of our planetary mourning for our favorite and first Vulcan, this image popped up and instantly became one of my favorites. Rock Stars know all about being on the outside and no one knows the outside better than Mr. Spock.  We did a show this week also, nice to be back. We pay our tribute at the end of the show.

Skittles From the Dark Side

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERAThis week we open with some Skittles talk, because that’s definitely what you’re tuning in for, right? Evil Skittles are made up of pomegranate, dark berry, midnight lime, forbidden fruit, and blood orange. Because it’s bloody!

After that we talk about some movies and things, including several pointless awards shows and the fact that Scotty is helping to write the new Star Trek movie. I saw Birdman. Jose saw Selma. We both saw Force Majuere.

Oscarzzzzzzzzzzzz……

This week on the show we talk a lot about the Oscars this week, including the fact that we haven’t seen any of the big nominated films. While we plan to rectify this quickly now that we have a list, still it’s kind of entertaining as we stumble through the list of nominees with almost no excitement. Except for the animated movies, I’ve seen all those.

Two Hundred and Eighty-Pine

tumblr_lj5otueMes1qd25z6_largeDid I do one of these for Chris Pine already? I don’t remember. The guy’s not so bad as Kirk, really, he just keeps getting stuck with shitty scripts. Anyway, welcome to episode 289 of the podcast! This week we recorded while the Golden Globes were being announced, so tune in for a fractured reveal of the people who won, but not all of them! We also discuss the Ant Man trailer and a whole bunch of television news. Then it’s time for us to praise Heroes of the Storm some more. The game starts closed beta today, so go to Battle.net and sign up for an invite. If you get in, join us and I will toss my dwarf at you!

We continue our yearly tradition on the show this week looking back on the show at some of the things that made us happy in the past year.  In movies, TV, Comics, Video Games and more, listen to what excited us last year and a little bit about what we are looking forward to in 2015. Thanks for listening this past year, we are looking forward to the next.

Year-End Blowout!

Itzoom2-harrison-wells-is-the-reverse-flash‘s our final podcast of 2014, and there’s plenty of garbage to talk about! The powers that be (JJ) have finally revealed the names of the Star Wars characters we saw in the trailer, Roberto Orci is mercifully off of Star Trek 3: The Search for a Meaningful Franchise, and the Reverse Flash has popped his yellow head up on the CW. We cover all of those along with some drooling over the new trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road. Happy holidays, we’ll see you back here in 2015!

Slacker

 

This is a two man operation and one man has been slacking off…Me. This post is almost three weeks over due. I’ve missed two whole episodes of the show, both were really good. You should listen to them. They are over to the side on the little player or make with the click on the above links. This is what happens when the Holidays approach. We (I) get busy and things like this start to fall by the wayside.

We were off last week but we will be back this week. Meanwhile, enjoy the Star Wars parody trailer we talked about on the last show. It really is pretty funny.
