Jake and Sky are back from their unexpected week off moderately rested and hangover free. We gathered 'round the old tv box and watched "My Name is Erek" We discuss real world physics about a fictional skeletal robot dog, try in vein to figure out what the hecking crap is the plan with the hologram crystal, and we get to see three dogs! http://popculturefailure.podomatic.com popculturefailure@gmail.com Show: @FailedPopCultur Jake: @mdwstlvaffr Sky: @sandwichsurplus

Jake's Bachelor Party Hello!

7/30/2018
More
Hey guys, we're sorry there is no new episode this week. We got all turned around schedule-wise (which was mostly Sky's fault) and we ran out of time. Jake's Bachelor's party was over the last weekend and we had a grand old time and recorded this little tid-bit for you guys. Do you know how easy it is to edit 2 minutes of audio? It's very easy. Thanks for putting up with us! XOXO Jake and Sky http://popculturefailure.podomatic.com popculturefailure@gmail.com Show: @FailedPopCultur Jake:...

21 New Yeerk, New Yeerk

7/23/2018
More
This week Jake and Sky watch part 3 of Face Off. We're still sloggin our way though Animorphs. Hoo boy. This one wasn't good. We discuss the episode and how it doesnt make any sense, the new super yeerks are never really explained, and Ax almost gets stuck as a blue boy. http://popculturefailure.podomatic.com popculturefailure@gmail.com Show: @FailedPopCultur Jake: @mdwstlvaffr Sky: @sandwichsurplus

20 Furbalicious

7/16/2018
More
This week Jake and Sky are joined by their friend John Furby. He's a returning guest who hasn't kept up with the show and know's LITERALLY nothing about Animorphs. Forgive the long recap as we catch him up to speed. We discuss the various better places one could hide a piece of very important technology, the very strange lemming-like state the kids of the Animorph's high school are in, how the yeerk ruse really doesn't line up with the meteorologic weather patterns of where we know the...

19 Jake Says Things That Were Grosser Then He Meant

7/9/2018
More
Jake and Sky trudge onward into episode 19 Face Off part 1 in the Nick Animorph series. It was a sparse episode. We discuss how the yeerk in Tom's head needs to be better at planning, the animorphs have no plan and even worse execution, and how the secret of the disk is revealed. It's so much more infuriating then it needed to be. http://popculturefailure.podomatic.com popculturefailure@gmail.com Show: @FailedPopCultur Jake: @mdwstlvaffr Sky: @sandwichsurplus

18 Well, That Was Uncomfortable...

7/2/2018
More
This week Jake and Sky are joined by Matt Hoadley for Episode 18 "Not My Problem" It was a bad episode of television. We discuss dynamics of "kissin' cousin's" (maybe a little too much), ask why on Earth the Yeerks keep infesting teenagers, Tobias is the dirt worst at everything, and Matt hates time travel. http://popculturefailure.podomatic.com popculturefailure@gmail.com Show: @FailedPopCultur Jake: @mdwstlvaffr Sky: @sandwichsurplus Matt: @matthoadley @fifthdraw @rebootcast...

16 Ax, You The Mandalite

6/18/2018
More
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

Marco and his dad share a super weird flirty paint fight, we get to see the Yeerk's human controller's uniforms, Marco quits Animorphing, and Tobias and Ax are nowhere to be found. 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
More
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...

4/30/2018

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

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...

4/9/2018

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,...

4/2/2018

The Yeerk invasion rages on in episode 5 of the Nick adaptation of Animorphs: Between Friends. 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
