#119 | Special Effects? You Got Special Effects Money?

Martians! And Kryptonians! And African warriors! Oh my! The CW’s DC Comics Universe continues to grow by leaps and bounds, with Miss Martian joining the cast of “Supergirl,” and Vixen becoming a regular on “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.” The shows just keep getting better and better, even if the special effects remain not quite that special.

In addition to men and women in tights and bad makeup, Ken share’s his live interactive “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” experience, Brandon ponders if “Poltergeist” still holds up as a horror film after all these years, we all wonder when did Ice Cube become one of the Brothers Grimm, and we discuss our favorite shows “Atlanta,” “Insecure” and more. Oh! And we’re also trying to figure out if the Smithsonian African-American Museum is potentially selling out to its donorship.

Join Brandon, John, Kareem, Ken, and Jamison as we discuss, dissect, and try to make sense of the past, present, and future in film, television, music, animation, race relations in media - and on occasion comics and tech - while trying to remain sane. If you’re tired of hearing the same (*ahem*) monochromatic take on modern media, we’re the podcast for you!
