After a long time coming (that no one asked for), the podcast covers one of the
worst greatest blunders of Robotech history; Robotech: The Movie: The Untold Story. This time the podcast is greeted by Robotech fan Grant The Thief.
(0:00 – 1:23:40) The Untold Review: Robotech: The Movie (ie, Talk-About-Robotech-Than-This-Crappy-Film-For-Over-An-Hour-And-Twenty-Minutes) – No the headline isn’t lying to you guys, Dustin, Jonn and Grant really did talk about other Robotech stuff than this film. Think about it, if the hosts really “did” talk about Robotech: The Movie, this podcast would have been really short, and who wants that? Before ever going into trying to summarize the wikipedia article of this film, the hosts just talked Robotech from property rights, fandom and silly crossovers throughout Robotech lifetime. This also gets into discussion on Harmony Gold properties (like that Captain Harlock dub), who Carl Macek really is, how people forgot how to draw Robotech officially, how anime being shown on television has changed for the better and much more.
(1:23:40 – 02:21:55) Closing Remarks – Dustin and Jonn bring in the verdict for the Rise and Crash of KidsClickTV, Grant brings in how great Lupin the 3rd is, Dustin being a panelist at Electric City Comic Con, Cartoon Network shows, crazy Robotech podcasters, and how breaking up with your fiancee is hard to do. All this and more in this weeks episode.
OP – Why can’t I be saaaaaaaved, from Harmony Gold!
ED – The future is looking grim for Robotech, oh wait, that’s nothing new…
This show has:
I hope the rest of this gets on TV for real…

AoY Podcast #97 – Suicide Squad / Killing Joke Review
Also known as: “I’VE NEVER SEEN WILL SMITH BOUNCE A BULLET OFF OF A WAVE!

This time the gang is back in the pits of the DC comic book villain detention center, as hosts Dustin, Jonn and Daft go head to head with the Suicide Squad.
(0:00 – 1:21:51) Movie Review: Suicide Squad – I’ts been a while since we covered the DC spring release of Batman v. Superman, but it seems DC still wants to make sure it’s fans are keeping up to date on what is going on. Despite the hosts differing opinions on the film, one thing seems to be certain for what really DC fans have wanted for so many years on the big screen; and that’s to see Harley Quinn. Regardless of what the critics might say about the movie, even including us, we seem to think this movie is still going to make a lot of money at the box office. Of course with usual fare, Dustin, Jonn and Daft set up shop at the old abandoned podcast watering hole to ramble about comic books in general, how we are using the Slack to replace Skype (bout FREAKING TIME AMIRITE!), upcoming comic book movies, how Dustin feels that Suicide Squad might be part Cyber City Oedo (but not really), Deadshot would lose to Golgo 13 and much more.
(1:21:51 – 1:58:04) Movie Review: Killing Joke – After playing the Alan “Grand Wizardman” Moore theme song, it seemed to be the perfect transition into Jonn and Daft review of the Killing Joke DC animated movie. The review mostly went into what DC does and doesn’t do best when it comes to adapting comics to film, along with more comic book gripes and praises.
(1:58:04 – 2:25:20) Closing Remarks – The gang unwinds from this DC cinematic trip by Dustin talking about Electric City Comic Con (not Emerald City, my bad guys), the group giving commentary on the Olympics, Dustin joins a DoD:S clan, Sports talks, people on social media, and much more.
SPEAKING OF OUR UPCOMING 100TH EPISODE!!: We’re getting close to our 100th episode, so here is the deal: Episode 100 is coming up and both hosts want you listeners to send us some suggestions on what to do. Should we read email sent by you? Should we do a review of something? Show off our anime collection on video? Demolition Derby? I dunno, you tell us! So to send us suggestions, email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or you could tweet at us over at@AoYPodcast. It’s that simple to use guys! Depending on how many people submit ideas, Dustin and Jonn will pick the most doable idea and execute it, and there will be recognition for it! So let the podcast know by Episode 99 and we will see what happens!
– Dustin (Zeonic)
OP – Some might see Suicide Squad a painless experience… that’ts not the case for us…
ED – The holiest of holy Olympiad songs to be heard…
This show has:
Screw you Olympics!!!
Pretty much the same system the Olympics use as to what Dustin and Daft were talking about…
What Alan Moore does with his time these days…
