The last PPV of the year brings us our second Roadblock of the year, but this one is the End of the Line! We have updates on Zack Ryder, James Ellsworth, and Sami Zayn, in addition to our predictions for the big night. Who can afford to eat a loss, Rusev or Cass? Will the New Day lose so soon after making history? Will Sami survive Strowman? Will the cruiserweights deliver? Will we care by the end of the Ironwoman match? Will HHH start the build to Wrestlemania? And will someone please give us a break and not announce a new belt and/or show for a few months?
Steve is concerned with the massive sex problem facing Japan and he wants to discuss it with Jason. He also brings robots into the mix, which, given the geographic setting, isn’t out of the question. Proving that Steve is making great choices, he also regails us with his tales of blood, sweat, and tears, and what his son’s reaction was to seeing them all in person.
On the second day of Christmas, Steve and Jason gave to me, so much webcomics stuff you’d think it was already the 12th day! Stuff like a new webcomic team-up from Legendary and Jessica Chobot, a fun video about how maybe NOT to do webcomics, a hiatus for Kris Straub’s Broodhollow, the gorgeous art of Rising Sand, and how Angela Melick has wrapped up Wasted Talent.
It’s mid-December, just a few days from Christmas, so it must be time to recap a WWE PPV! TLC is in the books, and the guys want to talk about the delusions of James Ellsworth, the effectiveness of any random kendo stick, AJ Styles’ butt hole, and how much Mandarin Steve knows. Ok, only one of them want to talk about that.
Did you know that Steve grew up as the one and only Defender of Pocatello, the one that legends speak of? It’s true! Hear about how he and his trusty companion, Stick, stood vigilant for days on end, watching and waiting for the Bloods and the Crips to come make their play for his small but impressionable town.
The guys return to days gone by and dedicate the entire episode to a review of a single webcomic! They turn their critical eyes towards Riana Dorsey’s Suihira, a tale about family, beliefs, and dedication in the face of adversity. Also, a killer whale that is the deity embodiment of water. Enjoy!
Before we can snuggle up and stay warm and cozy for the holidays, it’s time to get the first of two WWE PPVs out of the way. TLC is tomorrow and we’ve got the card plus our predictions, hopes, and dreams to go over. Will The Undertaker make an appearance? Will we see a giant pile of steel chairs? Will AJ Styles Clash someone through something?
Though the guys have seen a lot of the slice-of-life, art student journal comics lately, Electric Bunny Comics is yet another fun one. Ascension, however, is not fun, but could be something special someday. Steve also brings Grassblades to the conversation, tropes and all. Finally, Jason has an idea that will return us to old-school Digital Strips next week. Listen in for the details and find out how you can join the experience! (Also, read Suihira.)
Well, that was quite a match, huh? Jason and Steve break down the Lesnar/Goldberg classic, and lament the fact that nothing has changed after a pretty good show. They also discuss Sami Zayn’s transformation into Mick Foley, the New Day’s slow heel turn burn, Steve’s shame in the women’s wrestling game, and why the Royal Rumble match is probably the perfect next move for Bill Goldberg’s ride off into the sunset.
