6/18/2018

This week we watch The Leader part 2 of Animorphs. If you can believe it, we found some flaws in the plot. We discuss the lack of OSHA standards in space, how Solo: a Star Wars Story is 100% about fuel, IRL Jake explains why the yeerks suck so hard, and Sky is super wrong about when Marco gets his rattlesnake morph. http://popculturefailure.podomatic.com popculturefailure@gmail.com Show: @FailedPopCultur Jake: @mdwstlvaffr Sky: @sandwichsurplus

We discuss how sketchy Rachel's dad's behavior is, Nets make a triumphant return to our podcast, the Elemist's force ghost makes an appearance, and the Animorphs continue to REFUSE TO MORPH or make any attempt to hide their identities. http://popculturefailure.podomatic.com popculturefailure@gmail.com Show: @FailedPopCultur Jake: @mdwstlvaffr Sky: @sandwichsurplus Jake:...

13 Your Name's Toby

5/28/2018
More
Jake and Sky take a trip down digitally projected through a regular portable dvd player memory lane with "Tobias" episode 1 of season 2 of Animorphs. That was a long complicated sentence. We question Ax's ability for rational thinking, Tobias remembers how he was never good at being a people, Marco does not appear at all, and Sky talks about battle bots some more. http://popculturefailure.podomatic.com popculturefailure@gmail.com Show: @FailedPopCultur Jake: @mdwstlvaffr Sky: @sandwichsurplus

12 Frannie the Forgotten

5/21/2018

This week Jake and Sky watch The Forgotten of the Nick Animorphs series. It seems as though whoever wrote this episode, forgot one half of the plot of the book this was based on. We discuss the nature of the relationship Tobias and Rachel have, the Sharing has a weird civil war era campground, Jake the host makes Sky super uncomfortable, and the infamous Frannie makes her debut.

11 Yeerks Are Terrible At Morphing

5/14/2018
More
This week we finish the epic tale of Jake's Yeerkening with The capture part 2. It's a pretty ok second half. We discuss how gross the Andelite hand looks, how we wish they would name the pc video game arcade cyber cafe thing so we can stop stumbling over what to call it, the logistics of holding a teen prisoner in a chair for 3 days, and we get super in the weeds at the end. http://popculturefailure.podomatic.com popculturefailure@gmail.com Show: @FailedPopCultur Jake: @mdwstlvaffr Sky:...

10 Ax's Magnetic Personality

5/7/2018
More
This week Jake and Sky watch The Capture part 1. Somewhere someone goofed up and the episode order is out of sync over at amazon, so we're playing it by ear. We discuss how Visser 3 is selectively bad at being a human, the weight and dimension limits of a standard medical clinic's air ducts, Ax displays an Andelite physiology quirk that no one expected, and there is no reason the Animorphs still have secret identities. http://popculturefailure.podomatic.com popculturefailure@gmail.com...

This week our intrepid heroes Jake and Sky watch episode 9 The Reaction from the Nick Animorphs adaptation. It's the one with morph allergies. We discuss the languishing status of California zoo's, how the morphing effects were actually pretty good in this one, and how the climax of the episode was all Rachel's fault. http://popculturefailure.podomatic.com popculturefailure@gmail.com Show: @FailedPopCultur Jake: @mdwstlvaffr Sky: @sandwichsurplus

08 Unexpected Stalk-Eye Erection

4/23/2018
More
This episode was recorded a year from the day we started doing this podcast! We've had a lot of fun and watched a lot of garbage. This week Jake and Sky have the pleasure of two guests from the SmashFiction podcast, Kit and MeganBob! There was a lot to discuss. Kit and Bob prove their improv skills by "yes, and"ing us, we go over the 4 kinds of people in the world, there is an abundance of talk of cloacas and poop, we fret over Ax's digestive tract, and Ax "fights" Visser 3. Thanks to...

07 Oatmeal = Drugs

4/16/2018
More
This week is the oatmeal episode. It is what they refer to as "a doozy." Jake and Sky are joined by a returning guest James as they try to unpack the madness of the episode. We wince at the unfortunate portrayal of the mentally ill, discuss how Rachel really could be making better use of that Lion morph, and the kids huck water balloons filled with neurotoxin. http://popculturefailure.podomatic.com popculturefailure@gmail.com Show: @FailedPopCultur Jake: @mdwstlvaffr Sky: @sandwichsurplus...

06 Trying to Sound Profound but Really Just Making a Very Long Title

4/9/2018
More
This Week Jake and Sky are joined by a returning guest, Alan Sells! We gathered round the old internet box to watch Animorphs Episode 6 The Message. We speculate about language that is telepathic, lament the lack of Rachel, mock everyone for their poor decision making skills, and laugh at the extremely poor Andelite costumes. http://popculturefailure.podomatic.com popculturefailure@gmail.com Show: @FailedPopCultur Jake: @mdwstlvaffr Sky: @sandwichsurplus Alan:@Alan_Sells @PWTpodcast,...

We discuss how Rachel's morph arsenal is top to bottom cats, how little sense it makes for Yeerks to honor any deal they make with their hosts, Cassie continues to not morph, and how none of the Animorphs is good at keeping a low profile. http://popculturefailure.podomatic.com popculturefailure@gmail.com Show: @FailedPopCultur Jake: @mdwstlvaffr Sky: @sandwichsurplus

3/26/2018
More
This week Sky and Jake watch Animorphs episode 4 "On The Run" Not a lot happens. We discuss the natural habitats of teens and andelites, how the Sharing's pitch is pretty lackluster, and struggle to remember what '95 internet was like. We also briefly gloss over how Tobias isn't in this episode, just like the show does. http://popculturefailure.podomatic.com popculturefailure@gmail.com Show: @FailedPopCultur Jake: @mdwstlvaffr Sky: @sandwichsurplus

This week Sky and Jake follow the Animorphs into the yeerk pool in episode 3 of Nickelodeon's Animorphs, "the Underground" We discuss Marco's awesome orange jacket, Cassie has a flawless way to calm jungle cats down, how anyone itching their ear definitely has an alien in their brain, Jake (not the character) decides he should start twisting all the hooks and whatnot in his janitor's closet, and Chapman really hates lizards for some unaddressed reason....

Invasion week two. We watched My Name is Jake Part 2 of Nickelodeon's Animorph adaptation. We discuss how apparently its super easy to morph clothes after all, no one has a cool morph yet, and Tobias is a creepy flake. http://popculturefailure.podomatic.com popculturefailure@gmail.com Show: @FailedPopCultur Jake: @mdwstlvaffr Sky: @sandwichsurplus

Welcome! Jake and Sky are back! The Yeerk invasion starts as they watch episode one "My Name is Jake" of the Nickelodeon adaptation of Animorphs! The guys discuss how Animorphs was part of their friendship before they were friends, having a main character share a name with a host gets confusing, Jake compares Sky to C3-P0, and Tobias sucks at catching. http://popculturefailure.podomatic.com popculturefailure@gmail.com Show: @FailedPopCultur Jake: @mdwstlvaffr Sky: @sandwichsurplus

08 The Last Stand of Eldrac

2/19/2018
More
This is it guys! We watched episode 8 of Marve's Inhumans, "...And Finally: Balackbolt" Everything has come to a confusing head as we end the best (and only) Inhumans tv show ever made. We discuss how a teleporting dog plugs your plot holes, how remarkably competent Triton is, and how shockingly useful Eldrac, the guy who is just a wall, was. Thanks for sticking with us as we finished another less than great series! We'll be back in 2 weeks with Animorphs!...
