Show #158: Extreme Ghostbusters

Greg Driver of Ace Comicals is the new kid on the block, making a frightful ruckus this Halloween about Extreme Ghostbusters!

Eager to escape the trappings of their allegedly less cool forebears, the 90s were rife with retools and reboots of older properties hoping to capitalise on a new generation of impressionable kids. He-Man and GI Joe got theirs so it was only a matter of time before everybody's favourite tech start-up got the treatment. Does it keep the spirit of the original or is it yet another lost soul? Political poltergeists, comic counterparts and slime scarcity to come!

Let’s Go! Episode 63 – Let’s Stop Watching Welcome To The Ballroom

After one misstep too many Welcome To The Ballroom crashes ignominiously out of the running, it's slack then summarily taken up by The Ancient Magus' Bride and Inuyashiki. That's all on top of the avalanche of new things we've elected to attempt to keep up with, elaborated on the Let's Go installment I couldn't repost last week due to inclement weather/lives. What a disaster!

Show #157: Rock-A-Doodle

Rain delays play but now you finally get to hear us wade through the washed up mess that is Rock-A-Doodle!

Don Bluth, Donny old boy, we keep coming back to you despite our best interests and we're starting to wonder why. Rock-A-Doodle is expectedly the incoherent muddle that unfortunately has come to overshadow the bright spots in your career, but perhaps we're drawn back because of the infinitely more fascinating circumstances surrounding the inception and production of this film. Literary history, real life tragedy and obvious better story ideas that somehow got passed over are uncovered within!

Let’s Go! Episode 61 – Let’s Watch a Lot of Bonobono

All good things must come to an end but there is one constant in our lives we can always rely on - the surreal adventures of a sea otter and his forest friends. A bonanza of Bono Bono picks up the slack this time as some series take time off and others come to an expectant or acrimonious finish. Don't bully us!

Show #156: Recess

It's a hard life returning to the confines of those old school walls but take solace in the fact that you'll always have Recess!

Part of the new wave of original Disney TV shows that arose in the wake of stiff competition from other kids networks, Recess was a bonafide enduring hit when it first aired. But does this tall tale of schoolyard shenanigans have anything to offer audiences today? Subversive political messages, creepy fans and our own educational history all come out to play!

Let’s Go! Episode 60 – Let’s Move To Worlds Beyond Sunday

Brian's days of recounting vaguely comprehensible nonsense to us are over for now as Heybot draws to a close, while another font of insanity will be missed with the conclusion of Vatican Miracle Examiners. Rage Of Bahamut may also be heading to a shocking and upsetting conclusion but things only seem to be going up in gear in Dragon Ball Super, Magical Circle Guru Guru and Welcome To The Ballroom. The end is nigh!

SOTSM x DITB: Your Name

While you eagerly await the next instalment why not catch up with Niall's appearance on Dynamite In The Brain where Makoto Shinkai's magnum opus Your Name gets a thorough combing over. Does it live up to the acclaim showered upon it by the viewing public? Our consensus is... maybe!

Let’s Go! Episode 59 – Let’s Go See A Paw

.................Why the big pause? Because Bono Bono is even weirder than usual! More shocking turns as Mineta actually does something valiant in My Hero Academia, Charioce's master plan unfolds in Rage Of Bahamut and Heybot reveals the secrets of the universe, while unsurprisingly Frost acts like a massive tool in Dragon Ball Super. Give us five!

Show #155: Chuck Norris Karate Kommandos

Because we're about due for a bad idea we try and ascertain an explanation for the persistent notoriety of Chuck Norris Karate Kommandos.

Click Here To Download (Right Click, Save As)

Our foray into Ruby Spears-fronted celebrity tie-in cartoons was surprisingly fruitful last time with Mr T and his gang of mystery solving teens. Can the formula work again for Karate Kommandos, a show more often experienced solely via out-of-context video clips? Colourful ninjas, high henchman turnover, moral codes and not-so-secret agents get in the mix!

Sweet dreams!

Show #154: Concise Cartoon Combat Combo! Kizuna Ichigeki and Trava - Fist Planet

Niall has returned! To get him back into shape in short order though we'll need a special intensive workout session, so what better than the one two punch of Kizuna Ichigeki and Trava - Fist Planet!

Click Here To Download (Right Click, Save As)

A brace of brief battle shows presented itself before us and believing them a tad short for a podcast by themselves we elected to roll them up into one outing. Kizuna Ichigeki gives us the tale of a crazy karate family defrauding a martial arts tournament and their efforts to deal with the repercussions that follow, while Trava is a little episode in the lives of two of Redline's favourite racers years before they competed on the big screen. A pair of strong contenders indeed, but who will win? Does it matter? To find out you'll just have to listen up!

Dwayne and Brian continue to uphold order in Niall's absence even as it threatens to break down in the world of anime! Breaking & entering in Rage of Bahamut, attempted frog murder in Bono Bono and possible tournament rule violations in Dragon Ball Super to name a few. At least the Vatican Miracle Examiners get their man but not without uncovering a conspiracy that goes all the way to the top!

Let’s Go! Episode 55 – Let’s Team Up

Goku offers assistance to an assassin when Hit gets ganged up on by the Pride Troopers, leading to a lapse of memory regarding continuity on the part of either the showmakers or your venerable podcast hosts. All that plus a thrilling two-parter in Bono Bono, secret origins in My Hero Academia, the welcome return of Rage of Bahamut and one of our regular series gets the chop!

Let’s Go! Episode 54 – Let’s Go To The Movies

Niall has no idea what happened on this installment as he wasn't there! But based on the above screenshot you can rest assured Brian and Dwayne will keep this thing on time and under budget to bring you all the usual priests, punch-ups and peculiarity this podcast is known for. It's a guarantee!

SOTSM x DITB: Ping Pong - The Animation

Just before Niall took his extended break he got a chance to drop in on Dynamite In The Brain for an intensive look at anime auteur Masaaki Yuasa's TV adaptation of Taiyo Matsumoto's titular manga. Balls, bats, boys, brotherhood and badassery all feature along with a few out-of-date plugs, but to find out more you'll have to listen up!

Let’s Go! Episode 53 – Let’s Go To Bed

Time to catch up with all the things released while Niall was away on holiday, starting with the nightmare-inducing anime of two weeks ago! Rage of Bahamut and Shonen Ashibe Go Go Goma-chan are nowhere to be found and Made In Abyss is summarily dismissed. Luckily late arrival Pikotaro's LULLABY LA LA BY plugs a hole in our schedule.

Show #153: Castlevania

Halloween in August! We make use of the service Niall questions continually paying for to take in the long awaited Castlevania!

Video game adaptations of any sort are a shaky proposition and this held true for Castlevania, so imagine our surprise when it came out fairly okay! However does it stand out for its own merits or merely look favourable in comparison to the more notorious game shows that preceded it? Fluffy capes, bad accents and a lightheaded podcast host await!

Let’s Go! Episode 52 – Let’s Cast Out The Devil!

Vatican Miracle Examiners pulls out all the stops a third of the way through the series, but has it peaked too early? Who can say, but in the meantime we can still enjoy the showdown with Stain in My Hero Academia, the Saiyans taking supremacy in Dragon Ball Super, love blossoming in Rage Of Bahamut and Welcome To The Ballroom takes pains to remind us it's a sports anime. Repent and be saved!

Dreamworks' next animated feature after The Prince of Egypt had a lot of expectation riding on it and what emerged was not exactly the second coming, but does it deserve such a bad reputation? We delve into it and much like the film our discussion skews all over the map from old ass jokes that kids won't get to matters of church vs state to equal opportunity fan service. It's a wild ride!

Let’s Go! Episode 51 – Let’s Go Berserk

You won't like Kale when she's angry, or maybe you will anyway much like how we strive to overlook an uncomfortable episode of Magical Circle Guru Guru. Stain is out for blood in My Hero Academia, a flimsy disguise somehow holds up in Rage of Bahamut, something terrible will happen in Bono Bono and we reflect upon The Reflection. Take a deep breath and count to ten!
