Hello Marvel Universe!
In this episode of ESMCU, John and Jen talk about two other Marvel TV shows on the horizon: Hulu’s “Runaways” and Freeform’s “Cloak and Dagger”. These shows aim to bring in a younger audience, but…whatever happened to “it’s all connected?” Next, we recap the Infinity Stones – which ones are found, which ones are still missing, and where might they turn up between now and Infinity War?
In this week’s SHIELD episodes, “Wake Up” and “Hot Potato Soup,” we learn more about Radcliffe’s virtual world, and get to see Patton Oswalt do standup. Radcliffe proves to be even more of a sneaky bastard, and we get a disappointing reveal of who “The Superior” is. Is there another LMD at SHIELD HQ, in addition to Radcliffe and the May-bot?

Hello Marvel Universe!
We’re back after a longer than anticipated break, ready to catch you up on the last ….quarter season? The episodes between the winter break and the spring break. We’ve moved to an every other week schedule, so most of our episodes will cover two SHIELD stories.
But first, John and Jen talk about the news – new announcements about who will be in Infinity War (spoiler alert: EVERYONE), rumors of Peter Dinklage joining the cast, a change in leadership at Marvel Entertainment, and speculation on who Sigourney Weaver is playing in “Defenders.”
In the second half, we cover the episodes “Broken Promises” and “The Patriot.” The LMD plotline is in full swing, but what happens when your Big Bad gets gacked at the end of the first episode? We’re in comic book TV, so you can’t keep a good bad guy down. Mace’s “big secret” is revealed, and it’s basically what we figured it was. But how will this change the team’s dynamic going forward?

Flopcast episode 252! The Mayor of Chickentown returns with a report from the Los Angeles Doctor Who convention known as Gallifrey One, where she found the original K9 robot dog (and yeah, some robot mummies), but did not find the great Luke Ski (or pants). Meanwhile Kevin breaks his vow never to leave the house again, first to butcher a Men at Work song at karaoke, and then to play Tron at a crazy little movie theater hidden deep inside an ancient mill. But when we’re done with Tron, Kornflake suggests we play Mario Brothers, because Mario Day is this week! (Time to hang that Mario Lopez poster in your locker again…) Also: Our friends at the Foxes in the Hen House podcast just released their annual romantic fan fiction episode. It’s hilarious, and we just might have suggested one of the ridiculous characters involved…
Flopcast episode 248! It’s time to review our long crazy day at the Boston Women’s March! (The ride into the city was crazy enough; all 175,000 marchers squished into the same subway car, or so it seemed…) Lots more friends of the Flopcast were out that day too, both in Boston and throughout the world… but the only familiar face we found in the crowd was Keytar Bear. (A bear playing a keytar does tend to stand out…) And in an effort to be completely exhausted, we also attended the ACLU benefit after-party, with awesome performances by Stars Like Ours, Carissa Johnson, and Petty Morals. (Did the whole night end with an appropriate George Michael cover? But of course.) Plus: Listener feedback from last week’s Top 4 ½ List of doctors! (Yikes, we missed some big ones.) And Kornflake reminds us to celebrate Plimsoll Line Day, because these may not be good times, but you still have to keep your head above water. (See, no matter how bad things get, we’ll just keep making sitcom references…)
Flopcast episode 234! Since two geeky conventions happened the same weekend, we divided and conquered. Kornflake wandered up to New Hampshire for Granite Game Summit, where she enjoyed a new game called Junk Art (but don’t forget the classics, kids; we’re still endlessly amused by Hungry Hungry Hippos). Meanwhile Kevin was at Super Megafest, along with the guys from Rubber Chicken Comics, the ladies of Wicked Geeky, Niki Luparelli and the Gold Diggers, “The Mouth of the South” Jimmy Hart, Ralph Macchio (The Karate Kid), David Mazouz (Gotham), Richard Dean Anderson and Richard Grieco (best known for their Facts of Life backdoor pilots), Aileen Quinn (from the 1982 Annie movie, and her fun new band The Leapin’ Lizards), and yes, Meat Loaf. Also: Our friends Kyle and Lindsay made a VERY quick trip to Massachusetts (because they were kidnapped by Kornflake) for water aerobics, brunch, and butterflies. (You’re all watching Kyle’s new cartoon series Mighty Magiswords, right? RIGHT?) And it’s National Cookie Monster Day, which is good enough for us.
