MTR Network (entertainment)
 Call this our Green Lantern Teaser. Kriss & Dpalm go over the early years of Green Lantern and the Green Lantern Corps and cover some of the basics you'll need for our massive second (and possibly third) part. This Character Corner basically covers the introduction of the 4 main Green Lanterns of Sector 2814: Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner, John Stewart and Kyle Rayner. The focus is mainly on Hal's rise and fall ending with him becoming Parallax and destroying the Corps. We'll be back at the end of March/April to cover the second part (after detours to talk Wolverine and Iron Fist).

Normally the first Insanity Check back from a break would be a long episode and with everything going on in Trump's America, you'd think so. But just the opposite here. With everything going on we kinda wanted to do a shorter less structured show because...well, everything has just been so much.

First Character Corner of 2017 is here! Kriss and Dpalm start the year off talking about Piotr Rasputin (Colossus) and Kitty Pryde (Shadowcat). We start with Giant Size X-Men #1 that gives us our first introduction of Colossus along with a bunch of other fan favorites like Storm & Nightcrawler and the second full appearance of Wolverine. We then go through the Claremont years and discuss then the introduction of Kitty Pryde and why the character is so important. The relationship between Peter and Kitty is a bit weird because of their ages but it develops into something less creepy.  This Character Corner also was a great excuse for us to re-read Joss Whedon’s Astonishing X-Men run which at its core is a Colossus/Shadowcat story. Along the way we geek out over how much we love the X-Men growing up and the potentials for doing Wolverine and Cyclops Character Corners.  
 
We talked for almost 2 hours and still cut out a lot, so give this a listen and let us know what you think

Our Annual Movie Preview episode is here!  We preview the 2017 movie landscape. This time, Kriss & Dpalm are joined by Shanna and The Doctor since everyone loved our combined Supersized Super Tuesday Recap for the CW crossover. We have a great time discussing and laughing about some of the great (and not so great) movie prospects for next year. Even better we an epic rant from Dpalm about a certain Michael Bay movie involving giant robots that morph shapes. This is probably the most fun we've had on a Movie Preview.

Here are some of the trailers for movies we talked about (other than the comic book movie/big budget films we've all seen trailers for):

The last Insanity Check of 2016 and I had a special in-studio guest, International Superstar Bassey Ikpi. We talk about a lot of things on this seemingly random show (but everything is connected). We talk about way more than the topic list so give it a listen. Happy Holidays!
