  6. To celebrate 15 years of The Show, Dan and Mike look back at the once-seminal Wizard. How did a price guide become the go-to comic book magazine, how did it go from a groundbreaking Generation X tome to hate-filled trash, and how is its influence still felt today? Dan and Mike look at these questions and more, and Dan brings some crazy stats to the table. [ 1:58:32 || 60.6 MB ] [ download ][b]To listen, click here:[/b] [media]{url}[/media]

  14. Ian and Dave wade through two more episodes of Automan. In "Flashes and Ashes," Walter tries to prove an old friend wasn't corrupt and finds himself pitched against a suave Internal Affairs officer looking to become the next District Attorney. In "The Biggest Game in Town," LA comes under attack from a group of hackers. Walter and Automan must stop their acts of sabotage and track them down. They also discuss the possibility of Automan taking place in the same fictional universe as Robocop, more throwaway lines that open up all sorts of philosophical questions about the nature of Automan's sentience, and are taken aback by a police captain's use of a very British mild obscenity.

  19. On the final week before the D(e)-Generation X pay-per-view, we scramble to fill out the card and actually get some build. The semifinals for the Light Heavyweight Championship tournament, kind of. Ken Shamrock continues his rivalry with Shawn Michaels, kind of. And Stone Cold Steve Austin drives The Rock absolutely berserk. That one is actually really awesome, and you should hear what Kellen has to say and what Tom had to miss out on. [ 1:21:12 || 39.1 MB ]
  20. This week on Dread Media, the monster movies get a little silly. First, Desmond and Tom find out how all these werewolves got on this train in Howl.

  25. Dave and Ian are back with another two episodes of Automan. In "Ship in the Night," Walter and Automan travel to a Caribbean island to investigate the disappearances of several wealthy businessmen. In "Unreasonable Facsimile," Automan accidentally assimilates a soap opera and wants to fall in love. When he meets a woman connected with Walter's latest case, he thinks he has found love, but this brings up many philosophical questions about Automan's level of sentience. Are his emotions real or the result of an algorithm? If he is truly capable of feelings and autonomous thought, does that make him a lifeform and if that is the case does that mean that Walter is exploiting him for personal gain? Don't expect any of these questions to be answered though, as the story is more focused on making a profit for sub-standard helicopter parts. Dave tries out a new dramatic sound effect and institutes "briefcase full of money watch," while Ian shares the timespan during which he watched Eastenders and shares his hatred of one of the main characters.
