Segment 1:

Michael and Hassan begin the show with The Walking Dead and weigh in on where the show will go without Rick Grimes. The guys agree Negan’s storyline lasted too long and how the show tends to overdo things. They speculate what will happen with the 3 feature length Rick Grimes films. They recap The Walking Dead’s mistakes over the seasons and wonder why anyone still watches the show.

Segment 2:

Hassan and Michael guess which characters will take the spotlight with Rick Grimes leaving TWD. They then count down the most politically subversive films to celebrate election day. They debate whether Ghostbusters promoted conservative values and if Demolition Man promoted libertarian values. Is Starship Troopers fascist? What about Idiocracy?


Segment 3:

Travis McIntire joins the Sire to discuss the development of Source Point Press. Travis shares  his experience working with the Michigan Comics Collective and how Source Point developed by going to hundreds of comic shows countrywide to build Source Point’s following. Travis previews his favorite upcoming 2019 Source Point releases, especially Savants by Gary Reed.

Segment 4:

Spinning The Racks: Thanos did nothing wrong? Hassan and Michael debate whether heroes or villains are more violent and who’s good or bad in superhero films. Upcoming Explorers TV series? Interstellar object may have been an alien probe? Tune in to hear their reactions!

We’ve got a show for you this week. Can’t say it’s great, can’t say it’s not. I can DEFINITELY promise no insane beatings as we welcome back Rus Wooton, one of the creative members of the Walking Dead comic book team back on to talk the season seven premiere.


I’m done.

That was my initial reaction after watching the episode earlier this week (in my case Monday morning…not the way to start your work week off believe me)

So I walked away thinking that’s it. Not because the violence was over-the-top (it was). Not because I didn’t see the deaths coming (I did…and then I didn’t) but mainly because it just stopped being fun. I had this whole top 10 deaths in comcis and movies bit planned. You know the Gwen Stacy, the Jean Grey, the Han Solo…nope. Not doing it. This wasn’t fun. The deaths in this episode wasn’t fun. I didn’t walk away feeling like I have in the past. I didn’t walk away feeling like I have for Game of Thrones. This was just. Not. Fun.

What did you think? Too violent or faithful to the book?
