UNT 58: The Predator Series

9/16/2018
More
What’s better than one ‘Yo Mama’ joke? A whole UNT worth of them! With the newest addition to the franchise, The Predator, out in theatres, we sat down for our usual ‘Group B’ therapy session and discussed, reminisced and hypothesized about all things Predator. We welcome newcomer and Yautja expert - Vance into the fold. Jared and Mateo compete for the best/worst ‘Yo Mama’ jokes. Greig wants to see more from Olivia Munn (it’s not what you think), while Tim’s Porta-Potty-related PTSD has him...

9/13/2018

This week on the DATEScast, our certified snackologists talk about their love for the game of basketball, and, in Derek's case, when that love died. We also learn about his real-life feud with Chucky Brown, Robert Horry, and most NBA players who played for a team in the state of Texas. Except for one man...ASU Alumni James Edward Harden Jr. Our heroes talk about how much they love this weirdly talented bearded man, and they put a snack he endorses through the PER system, Trolli Sour Brite...

Vaughn and artist Fiona Staples has everything — sex, drugs, war, weird aliens, more sex, friendship, betrayal, rocketships, even more sex, cool weapons, magic, talking animals, gut-wrenching death and (as DATES viewers know) #robotdicks.

ALL IN finally happened… and it. Was. Awesome. While Captain Jack (@JackHeartless) watched it on FITE, the crew from The Strap podcast (@TheStrap) were there LIVE and in living color! Sarah (@TheSarahVanB) stops by to compare live notes, both for the big event and for Starrcast, and discuss the fallout.

DATES 43: Cheez-It Duoz

9/6/2018

This week on the DATEScast, Derek is back online after his computer disaster and Tim welcomes him with open arms and handfuls of snacks. While the minor hiatus did equal some great snacking in Texas, it's time to get back on track with our nationally certified PER system of snack ratings. And since our dynamic duo is excited to be back together, they decided to PER another great pairing, Cheez-It Duoz: Caramel Popcorn and Cheddar Crackers. Is this snack combination as good of a duo as our...

347: The Chop Heard ’round the World

9/6/2018
More
You’ve been hearing it for weeks. Josh’s bachelor party in Austin was to become his funeral. Now we know why. What was the fate of Josh after taking a hellacious chop from PCO (@PCOQuebecer) at Inspire Pro (@InspireProWres)? Will he be able to watch wrestling and talk about it with his friends, or has he become broken and obsolete? In all seriousness, this was a pretty big week in pro wrestling. From the success of All In in Chicago to a new King of Trios being crowned… to NEW tag team...

UNT 56: Disenchantment

8/26/2018
More
Has Matt Groening still got it? The Simpsons was an instant classic, while Futurama blew our minds and broke our hearts. But somehow, getting our friends to watch the animated Netflix series Disenchantment is harder than dragging a one-eyed lady giant to a royal ball. Maybe it's the tired, status-quo structure of the season's middle episodes. Maybe the characters and jokes just aren't edgy enough. Maybe King Zøg reminds us a little too much of our friend Jared. Hang on a second, Leave-o....

345: SummerSlam 2018 Results and Aftermath

8/23/2018

Well, at least we can all move on now. Lesnar is done for the foreseeable future, and Braun Strowman begins his pursuit of the Universal Championship. The SHIELD is back, but they pulled a bitch move on Monday. What’s next for The Hounds of (In)Justice? Meanwhile, Becky Lynch got shafted at SummerSlam, took out her frustration, and WWE seems to think we shouldn’t support her. Charlotte can be a deserving champion, but she jumped in last minute, took an opportunity, and ultimately won the...

This week on the DATEScast, Tim takes the podcast in a dark direction while Derek gives away radio secrets. It's not their finest hour. However, they're able to recover from these troubling times to PER the hell out of this week's snack, Maltesers.

344: SummerSlam 2018 Preview

8/15/2018

FINALLY, after weeks (months?), RAW puts out a decent episode as we head into this weekend’s SummerSlam. Multiple surprises, a fresh voice on commentary (Renee deserves a ‘please come back’ chant), and plenty of filler that didn’t come across as a labor to get through. Dig it. SmackDown, meanwhile, sort of treaded water, but it was fun enough. This weekend is jam packed with big time matches, from NXT to the main card. We got together again with our pals from Mat Mania Podcast to break it...

DATES 41: Espresso, Salty & Sweet, & Fiery Snickers

8/14/2018

This week on the DATEScast, Derek and Tim are feeling a bit irritable, indecisive, and even a little wimpy. So even though snacks can't actually be prescribed because they're...you know...snacks (unless they contain marijuana), Tim and Derek take a heaping dose of Snickers bars when they pick, eat, and rate Espresso Snickers, Salty & Sweet Snickers, and Fiery Snickers.

UNT 55: Westworld Season 2

We didn’t forget, it just took us a while to wrap our minds around Westworld season 2, and to be honest, we’re still not sure we understood everything. After all, we might already be inside the thing, right? While Tim gushed over yet another Veronica Mars connection (despite not actually having seen the pivotal flash-forward scene), the rest of us pondered the philosophical nature of life, souls, clones and resurrections, tried our best to pronounce ‘Akecheta’, found way too many comparisons...

This week on the DATEScast, Derek and Tim are back from their vacations and ready to discuss all of the wonderful theme park snacks they saw and tasted. But in his rush to visit six Orlando area theme parks in 48 hours, Derek forgot to feed his family breakfast and could have used this week's snack, Jack Link's Breakfast Bacon. The duo discuss Disney being bigger than Mondelez, and why Legoland will never be great. Prepare to try this week's episode both straight out of the bag and heated up...

Captain Jack (@JackHeartless) welcomes Chris Damasceno (@BrasilianFury)(@BrasilianFury) back as they break down the middle third of this year’s G1 Climax tournament. There’s a bit of drag here in the middle, as you’d expect, but also arguably the best match of the tournament so far, as Ibushi and Ishii beat each other black and blue, Omega put on shows with ZSJ and SANADA, Juice rebounded, and Yano tried some more “Fair Play”!
