The Greatest Generation Ep 138: Pretty Rough for a First Timer (S6E13)

| 0 comments

When the Entrepreneur investigates a murder at the end of a breakfast buffet line, a very small station has a very big problem. But when the deceased officer's diary turns Geordi's investigation into titillation, Commander Riker has to step in between "a rock and Geordi's place." How much do you resent a roommate bringing a dog? Which cast member is an acceptable loss? Does this represent the end of the "Star Trek is a place" theory? It's the episode that's on a civilian-clothed date.

Minority Korner

"Awww Suki Suik," now we kick things off with an impromptu Quizlet Korner! Who made that phrase a house hold catch phrase in the 90's (and now looking back it is probably appropriated from Japan. James has a confession to make to Nnekay and you the audience... he watched 'Big Little Lies', but why does he feel so guilty about it? Possibly because it's just a bunch of rich white ladies, depressed, and staring into the ocean. Well we came here for Zoe Kravitz, and stayed for Nicole Kidman who turned it out! 'Masters of None' has reached perfection this season, and why are you still not watching 'Dear White People' yet? Nnekay delivers in an expose about the Tuskegee Study (not to be confused with Tuskegee Airmen of WWII) which was a true fucked up American Horror Story in it's treatment of Black men. Inspired by a recent trip, and conversion to the Yankee's, James takes a peak behind the jockstrap of Major League American Sports: a billion dollar industry. Which sports make what? How much do professional male athletes make compared to females? Why don't folks watch the WNBA? How much do cheerleaders make? What's the racial breakdown? LGBT Athletes? Does testosterone levels increase when your team wins? Why do we say "we" won, or "they" lost? Plus we take a look at the PWR BTTM controversy, and as we say: you gotta side eye your heroes. Also... did you see Drake get upstaged at his cousins prom?

One Bad Mother Episode 205: Age Ain't Nothin' But A Number, Plus Professional Wrestling...As Moms!

One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Kimmy Gatewood
Guests: 
Rebecca Johnson

Biz and Theresa wonder if we're putting too much or too little weight on our kids' actual ages. Every time our older kids reach a new age, it seems younger than we imagined it would be, and our younger kids -- no matter how old they get -- always seem little compared to our big kids. When we set limits and expectations based on our kids' ages, it always somehow feels totally arbitrary! Plus, Biz acts like she cares, Theresa solves the formula, and we talk to actresses and moms Kimmy Gatewood and Rebecca Johnson about Glow, the new Netflix series about lady wrestlers.

Lindsey Kelk

We’re tagging in Lindsey Kelk to talk with us about the last show before WWE’s big PPV weekend!

And while Smackdown didn’t have that much happening, how can you not love the Usos and Breezango constantly putting together brilliant promos? But we’ll explain why that’s good… and a potential problem for the tag team scene.

And Braun Strowman is officially out of wrestling until he gets his elbow fixed. How big of a bummer is this? A pretty big one, but we’ll all get to be sad together.

Plus: Adam Cole has had his final match in Ring of Honor! And he’s been fired from Bullet Club! Now that Marty Scurll is his replacement, we’ll explain what makes him Scurll so compelling and why we’re looking forward to seeing Cole in NXT soon.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Lindsey Kelk.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over Paul Heyman introducing Desiigner.

Lindsey put over The Fashion Files..

Hal put over Erick Rowan on Talking Smack.

If you want to talk about more wrestling throughout the week, be sure to join us on Facebook or @TightsFights on Twitter.

The Adventure Zone Ep. 63. The Stolen Century - Chapter Four

| 0 comments

We're fairly deep into our trip down memory lane, but our heroes are no closer to figuring out how to stop the ever-evolving force that's pursuing them. With few other options, they'll have to adopt a new, remarkably costly strategy. Magnus helps out some Losers. Taako eats a fateful meal. Merle makes a powerful new friend.
