There are so many of us out here throwing our opinions around. About comics. About movies. About video games. Everyone has a take. Some go the high route. Some punch down. Some wanna get paid. Some see what we're all actually doing for what its all really worth. Heavy episode this week folks. We lost an important voice. RIP Totalbiscuit.

Comparing Gothams and Smallvilles

5/20/2018
More
So many seasons ending this month. Some better than others, and some with promises of an even bigger season to come. So which shows have promise and which are a bust? Gotham seems to be the most puzzling. That's why we're comparing it to Smallville this week. We touch on the CWs DC verse as well as a whole swath of animated shows that may or may not be worth watching-- including ThunderCats Roar. Wouldn't be a legit episode if we didn't dive into the swamp that is Patreon one more time......

Domino: Cultural Diversity in Comics and Movies 2

5/13/2018
More
This became a follow up discussion to our old episode Nightwing: Cultural Diversity in Comics and Movies. Obviously this is a topic with a lot of sensitive aspects to it. I think it was sparked by an article calling out Jessica Jones for not including women of color in their cast. We try to navigate the subject and put forth some points of view that might broaden the discussion. We mention Superman, Joker, Domino, Bane, Colossus, and various other characters and their adaptations. Plus:...

So here's a little episode about the new God of War and how it's changed from the last series. Also: Batman Ninja, the Jim Starlin exhibit at the Cartoon Museum in SF, and DON'T SPOIL THE DAMN MOVIE YET. Enjoy the show folks.

Breaking Down the Infinity War Comic and More

4/22/2018
More
This is the third entry in our Thanos suite of episodes. Avengers: Infinity War will be vastly different from its comic book namesake. So what exactly was the Infinity War comic about? The Outliers walk you through that book as well as a few other modern Thanos stories that the movie might take cues from. Infinity War, The End, Annihilation, Thanos Imperative and Infinity are all covered in this huge episode just to catch everyone up on what the Mad Titan is all about on the page! Spoilers...

Thanos: Quests and Motivations

4/15/2018
More
Keeping with last weeks theme and the run up to Infinity War we're taking a close look at Thanos and the first few of his comic book quests as a cosmic supervillain. From the 70's, including his possession of the cosmic cube, versus Captain Marvel and the Avengers leading to his first death, into the 90's and his reappearance with the Silver Surfer and forming the Infinity Gauntlet, this episode is a history lesson of sorts. Who is Thanos, the Mad Titan? What motivates him? Our host...

With Infinity War weeks away we're taking an in depth look at the first appearance of Thanos the Mad Titan himself in comic books. What, if anything will make it into the movie? The book is jam packed with some great stuff that led to much of what we've been watching unfold for the past 10 years in the MCU. Iron Man #55 spoilers ahead folks! Also: Silicon Valley Comic Con was this week and half of us spent the day there and share a few local con stories! #SVCC Our host says ITunes uses...

The Legion and New Mutants Connection

3/30/2018
More
The second season of Legion will be upon us this week. The New Mutants movie has just been pushed back to 2019 for reshoots. Wouldn't it be nice if Legion were to show up in that movie? We look at the origins of the character and the main villain in the show, the Shadow King to see why it makes so much sense for these two things to crossover.

The Collectible Episode

3/25/2018

After being shut down by apparent scalper bots we had to have a little discussion about collectibles and resellers that scoop up all these awesome items only to outrageously overprice them. From comics to Batman art to exclusive Funko Pops this practice is alive and well. Plus: What was in the Snyder cut of Justice League and why it matters.

Concerns About Marvel and Stan Lee

Everyone loves Marvel movies, right? They can do no wrong at this point, right? Let the creators create! Right? Well, we kinda don't subscribe to that school of thought. We have some concerns this week about a few things in the news of late regarding upcoming Marvel movies. Now these may be unpopular opinions. But we're gonna get down in it anyways. Also of concern: Stan Lee and his general well being. Its a concerned Outliers this week. So open the floodgates. Its time to vent. Our...

Why We're Here Talking Oscars At All

3/1/2018
More
We're talking Oscars this week. With all of the incredible movies out there to choose from why haven't more comic book movies been nominated for that top spot of Best Picture? For that matter, why haven't some of the best performances been acknowledged either? We saw Michael Keaton get snubbed for Birdman, Stallone and Jackman got the same treatment for some pretty impressive outings. And Wonder Woman didn't get a Best Picture nod?! Also: Why we wouldn't be here at all talking about...

When the world gives you lemons... you go record a sour podcast episode and tell everyone why you aren't gonna stain that door, why Jennifer Lawrence can wear whatever the hell she wants, and why it's critical that we all listen to the kids trying to make a difference in public schools across the country. All while trying to discourage yourself from carrying a baseball bat around in your trunk. Buckle up everyone. The Outliers are kinda over it this week. Our host says ITunes uses...

Quite a few teasers and trailers have dropped beings that it was just Super Bowl Sunday. So we're broke down a few this week including Infinity War, Deadpool 2, Jessica Jones season 2, Rick and Morty, and Krypton. Also announced was the lineup for EVO 2018. The omission of a certain title has fans just a little upset. And after very informative segment about the games in this years lineup, we tend to agree.

Where does The Gifted fit in to the X-Men movies?

2/1/2018

Anyone who has watched The Gifted on Fox might be wondering where, when, and how that show fits in with the larger X-Men cinematic universe. Where are the X-Men again? Who is your father again? Oh and what about Blink being in Days of Future Past as well? We got to the bottom of all this ineXplicable nonsense and tried to establish a (somewhat) definitive timeline that incorporates even the OG X-Men movies all the way up to and beyond The Gifted.
