30 – Where Have We Been? Season 2 Kickoff

Okay, you got us; it’s been way, way too long.  But after a few months of complete silence that’s sure to have demolished our seven-person listenership, the Brothers Denton are back with an episode all about what exactly has kept them away these past few months.  Rance talks about what he’s been spending time doing since August and Bob broaches more subjects that royally piss him off.  They reflect on the recent success of Evil Dead: The Musical, and then they get into the meat of it: Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them, its merits, its flaws, and exactly what the Brothers Denton felt about it.  They sidetrack themselves with some passionate discussion about Hamilton: An American Musical, Mike Pence, bodily gas, coughing fits, and other wonderfully unexciting topics on this, the unofficial kickoff of The Brothers Denton: Season 2!  Also, there’s a song entirely made out of farts.

 


13 – AvED: We Finally Made It!

That’s right — we finally made it to the end of our Spooktacular!  In this, the conclusion of our October Extravaganza Halloween Excitement Fun-Time Festival of Wonder, the Brothers from the Same Mother reflect upon their viewing of the first episode of Ash vs. Evil Dead.  The verdict is in: it was totally great and probably better than anything else you’ve ever seen.  Somehow, before we touch upon all the Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi splendor, we get sidetracked into conversations about Bob’s Hulk-Out! Halloween (spoiler: he never breaks things or turns green), and Rance’s rediscovered love for a thing called reading.

12 – Army of Darkness: Beer and Boomsticks (Clustercast)

The Brothers Denton kick back with Sean from Washington, D.C. brewery D.C. Brau to talk about beer and Army of Darkness.  Well before that happens, though, we go on a tangential discussion about The Martian, picking apart the merits and the weaknesses of both the book and the film.  Rance gets gradually drunk; Bob and Sean make lots of noise on the table with their beer cans and their big sausage fingers.  Then, we each examine what we love (and a little of what we hate, though what is there really to hate?) about Army of Darkness for our last episode before our discussion of the new Starz series, Ash vs. Evil Dead.

 


11 – Evil Dead 2: Yippee Ki-Yay!

Our October continues on with our episode about Evil Dead 2, i.e., the strange and ugly and wonderful thread that connects Evil Dead to Army of Darkness.  Before we get into that, though, we adventure into very brief discussion about Arrow, The Flash, the 90s Flash, Bryan Cranston’s reading of The Things They Carried, and some vidya gaems.  Then, we venture into a sloppy back-and-forth about Evil Dead 2, its merits, its weaknesses, and conclude that it’s just a really, really, really weird movie.  Finally, a listener lets us know what she thinks of our previous episode, and we poorly deflect accusations of having tiny penises by shooting back our own brand of stuttery, ill-informed retribution.

 


10 – The Evil Dead: A Crappy Retrospective

Love Evil Dead?  So do we.  The Brothers Denton kick off an eventful October 2015 by starting off a series of podcasts leading up to the Halloween premiere of Ash vs. The Evil Dead.  This week, we embark on analytical movie-boy talks about the first film in Ash’s journey, what we love about it, what we dislike (Scott, Scott, and Scott), and whether or not it still holds up as a memorable piece of cinema.  Before that, though, our recording gets off to a bit of a rough start, and Bob admits to having spent fifteen hours preparing himself for the week in what may take the cake for the most pathetic and awesome Insufferable Nerd Thing to date.  Also, we scream a lot about bridges, about dumb characters, and about party-poopers.

 


5 – Ernest Cline, Evil Dead, and Mouse Poison

Loneliness and old age reveals itself with Bob’s Insufferable Nerd Thing of the Week, while Rance admits his frightfully underwhelming lack of knowledge about Evil Dead, especially with Ash vs. The Evil Dead on the horizon.  Over the course of one minute, Rance expresses his inarticulate disdain for Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One.  Other book-related topics include Armada and The Dresden Files’ Working for Bigfoot.  After, the boys reflect upon better-left-forgotten memories of World of Warcraft.  Various topics (dubbed “shit”) are thrown at the wall otherwise.  Astronaut ice-cream, Rance’s wife’s laughter, and Rance’s impatience and anger round off the end of the episode before The Brothers Denton realize they’ve actually said nothing of importance.
