1995 called saying it wants new versions of their hit movies that year, which got the hosts talking about Power Rangers and Ghost in the Shell… from this year.

(0:00 – 1:05:08) Review: Power Rangers – Dustin and Jonn and guests Cloud and Daft join together to dawn our power suits and get ready to take on this movie full force with our MegaZords all in the name of friendship! Well, not really, but it did warrant a good discussion (specially when Daft showed up 30 minutes later). Power Rangers was a film Daft hated to love, and Dustin saw it as a movie he loved to hate. There are spoilers afoot in breaking down scenes that were just stupid to begin with, as well as how twitter won’t shut up about it being this pro-ELGEBETE diverse crap fest. This warrants other Haim Saban discussions and other stuff, including Dustin trying to get away from a devoted fan rambling off his Power Rangers love to him at a Hot Topic.

(1:05:08 – 1:06:18) Promo: Just slipping in a quick Anime Cart and RightStuf! promo for you guys to drop all your dough on their websites. (Happening RIGHT NOW, you can get a FREE Naruto Headband with any purchase from animecart.com. Even though in a previous episode I stated about dumb teens going there to get headbands, I just got one, because its FREE! so that makes me feel a little better about getting one to act like a “highly functioning autistic ‘narutard'”, and you should too. Use our discount, it does work! – Dustin)

(1:06:18 – 1:55:15) Review: Ghost in the Shell – Just as Daft was more forgiving of Power Rangers, Dustin was even more so with Ghost in the Shell, despite the twitter anti-whitewashing hate machine taking credit that they movie failed. Its been over a year since we talked about Ghost in the Shell, and if you want our 1995 review of that, it can be found in this giant link in this text. Although not a perfect film, Dustin explains his reason why this film shouldn’t have gotten the specific negative attention it got when they’re other factors wrong with the movie, but it was mostly complaining about the haters of this film online. It’s more got to Dustin trying to defend the film for the things it did right, which was more than what the internet was going to give it credit for. Also, mics are being thrown down in anger, just saying. Dustin also wrote an article for The Odyssey about this film, so give that a read.

(1:55:15 – 2:18:35) Closing Remarks: There is still more discussion on haters and the internet, as well Cloud talking a little about Anime Boston, Dustin hating that UNC won the NCAA tourney, Ghost from TCR going sober, The People v. Jontron, are pets racists?, and finding your brothers anime items in storage to claim as your own. All this and much more in this weeks episode. Also fair warning, Dustin mic is super loud for some reason, but that will be fixed next episode.

Music Selection:

OP1 – Power Rangers Theme by A Robot (or Dustin’s good friend)

ED – Dustin will try and forget about this film, but doubt it

OP2 – We dive hard in this ghostly landscape of a film…

Basically, this episode is a general discussion, that was supposed to be about Sausage Party, but it ain’t all there guys. But, eff it, let’s just roll with what we got.

(0:00 – 1:28:00) The Timbox AuDIOtism Hour – After throwing in a promo at the beginning to promote AnimeCart.com, Dustin, Jonn and Daft talk about whatever they wanna talk about, which is mostly just dumb Slack chatroom non-drama, Timbox 123 and his many FULL LENGTH, ANIMATED, ONE MILLION PART FILM legacy adventures, Dustin sings THE GREATEST SONG IN THE WORLD,  and Justice League Dark (not really, but Daft says I should put that in – Dustin).

(1:28:00 – 2:06:15) SAUSAGE FEST-PARTY ’17!! – The most we talked about this terrible movie was us talking about the lowdown of how the animation studio who worked on it got screwed over, and then talked about adult Ralph Bakshi cartoons.

(2:06:15 – 2:34:36) Closing Remarks: Discussions include The New England JCPenny comic con, Dustin NCAA Tourny Bracket is toasted (aka screw off UNC for winning it once again!), local K Marts out of business and more.

What better way to end out 2016 but to travel back long ago, in a galaxy far far away. This time Dustin and Jonn are joined by previous guests Daft and Vekou to talk about Star Wars: Rogue One.

(0:00 – 1:07:30) Review – Star Wars: Rogue One Review – The council of nerds have all gathered to talk about the recent Star Wars film, which seems to be divided in the fandom of who likes and dislikes this movie. All hosts mention the movies strengths and weaknesses, as well as talk about other Star Wars material. This of course gets us talking about story lines in video games, nerd conversations on Clerks movie levels, and much more.

(1:07:30 – 3:02:44) Post-Christmas Holiday Closing Remarks – A lot has happened over the past month, and the hosts have something to say about it. Aside from talking about what we all got for Christmas, we give RIP shout outs to Alan Thicke, Carrie Fisher and George Michael passings. We also mention convention talk from Daft’s North East Comic Con review and seeing the Hanna Barbera exhibit, where as Dustin went to experience what happens when a high school puts together a comic con in the middle of nowhere. There is also discussion of a book about Tommy Wiseau, talk of terrible and cool animation industry people, Dustin desire to meet Jerry Beck and Fred Patton, abandoned Flinstone parks, the recent ramblings of Peter Fay, who to ban from our chat, and much more.

LOOKS LIKE WE MADE IT!! 100 episodes, 100 reviews, 100 crappy stories of closing remarks, and more than 100 followers to our site! Well, we decided to do our special review for this episode on Night on the Galatic Railroad as request from Jeff from the Daily Anime Podcast.

(0:00 – 48:00) Review: Night on the Galactic Railroad – So for our special 100th episode, Jeff has graced our presence to taking a ride on the galactic railway to your imagination.. maybe. Galactic Railroad may also be the sleep aid to your insomnia, or your children, which can work with OdinPhoton Space Sailor StarlightThis is an anime that means a lot to Jeff, which Dustin can see some of that in the film. We also dive into off topic (and semi-0n-topic) items such as how we got banned from Twitch.tv for streaming anime/movies, religious and Christian beliefs, how current anime fans get anime compared to the days or finding them at rental stores, and a little more added in. Also to note, Dustin did zero editing to this episode, because screw it, were doing it live!

(48:00 – 1:38:50) Closing Remarks: Oh boy, so much has happened since Jonn and Dustin sat down in front of the mics, and boy is their tales to tell. Everyone has their view on how the election is going, even our non-fellow capitalist Ghost from TCR. On the brighter side, love_that_goku is back and Jonn recants the current events in his life, even how LTG is trying to make his own path from Ecuador to Beirut. We spend too much time on a former ToonZone member and his sexual endeavors, and of course talking about whatever else. All this and much more in our grand 100th episode, and hope for another 100 more!!

Music Selection:

OP – No better way to celebrate our grand one oh oh episode with some eurobeat music
