S4E14 - Ep 081: Predator and Prey / No Time To Bleed

A deep dive into the films and video games featuring those invisible xeno-hunting badasses, the Predators!

There's something out there waiting for us, and it ain't no man...

In honor of the new period Comanche vs Predator show "PREY", we power up our plasma cannons and set our triangular sites on the every movie and darn nearly every video game to feature a member of the Yautja race!

All that plus we'll read the answers to this week's Octoponder This question before Nintenjoe gets us to the CHOPPA with his first edition of Retro Nouveau!!

Crow's Nest 23 - Batmobiles In The Belfry

The #1 most iconic vehicle in all of geekdom, we discuss and rate every on screen version of the Batmobile!

ZOOM! PLOWIE! Out of the shadows speeds this supplemental Crow's Nest!

Since we just talked about 8 awesome vehicles on our last mainline episode (080: Vehicles / Characters That Drive Us) we wanted to take the time to spotlight one we purposely swerved around. The Batmobile debuted in 1938 in Detective Comics #27 and has been cleaning up the streets of Gotham ever since!

For this episode, we cover and rate every film version of Batman's iconic wheels and even a few you might not be expecting!

S4E13 - Ep 080: Vehicles / Characters That Drive Us

We gas up and cover some iconic vehicles that are as important as the heroes who drive/fly/operate them!

Ready for some ships, quips and automobiles?

When iconic hero vehicles come to mind, you probably think of things like the Batmobile, The DeLorean and of course KITT. Funny thing is, we are going to dive a little deeper than that. For this episode, we'll shine the headlights on 8 vehicles from movies, tv and cartoons that really feel like characters in their own right.

And later on, we've got a BIG THINK Octoponder that requires a bit of creativity, and Parasite Steve will deliver his latest new game that looks and plays like an old game for another Retro Nouveau!

S4E11 - Ep 078: Primetime RULES, Bedtime DROOLS (with Phil Conti)

With the help of our #1 Retroid, we do a deep dive on four non-kid retro TV shows we had to stay up past our bedtime to watch!

A fun round table discussion chosen by this week's guest, Phil Conti!

Phil is an old friend and one of our most active Retroids in the Facebook group. It was great finally getting to sit down and chat about TV shows we stayed way past our bedtime to watch as kids. Shows that in some cases, we WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO SEE!

Later on, we'll tackle an Octoponder question which deals more with bedtime than Primetime... and before we sail off into the sunset, Nintenjoe will deliver the goods with another killer edition of POWER TO THE METAL!

S4E10 - Ep 077: Iceland Goes Back To The Future (with Leikjarinn)

We buckle into the DeLorean, hit 88 MPH and travel back to one of the most beloved movie trilogies of all TIME.

With the help of our favorite Icelandic pal, Birkir Fannar (AKA Leikjarinn, AKA Leik) we travel BACK to 1985 to gush over the classic movie trilogy BACK TO THE FUTURE. We discuss the films themselves and what they've meant to us over the years. Leik (who stayed up really late to record with us due to the time difference) goes into how huge the movies were in Iceland, providing a unique cultural perspective as well as plenty of laughs.

Later we'll ask this week's OCTOPONDER THIS and read the answers all you RETROIDS left in the group. And finally Parasite Steve will drop his first DIE MONSTER of the season!

Follow Leik on Twitter @Leikjarinn and watch out for his new YouTube channel when it drops!
