This week it’s the return of the King as Danny (@dannykbartlett) is back in the house! But, slacker Jammer has to work so the curse of two/three continues with only Danny, Jonesy (@sirjonesiest), and Nick (@geekyNICKDOLL).
The three lads have a ton to say about Amazon’s Lord of The Rings: The Rings of Power, including the toxic reaction many fanboys have towards it.
But, first, trailers and the news!

We’ve got four trailers to react to this episode! Nick is super psyched for Wendall & Wild, the new stop motion film from legendary Henry Selick and Jordan Peele. Meanwhile, Jonesy and Danny are cautiously optimistic for Picard Season 3 and the whole crew loves the trailer for Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. Finally, the crew isn’t sure what to think of Black Adam and how it actually fits into the DCEU.
Then, casting news and rumors for Star Wars: The Acolyte and Phase 5 of the MCU. Who will we see on stage at D23?
Finally, Top Gun: Maverick soars to even higher heights at the domestic box office, then it’s off to the races with our long Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power review and discussion.
Question(s) of the day: What do you think of The Rings Of Power so far? Do you get the hate?
Thanks to everyone who has listened and commented over the years. We do this for you just as much as for each other. We certainly wouldn’t be the premiere or flagship podcast without your support. Thank you.
