Chuck & Jer drop the Yule Log in the form of a "Star Wars...The Last Jedi" *spoiler* filled review. Plus...there's some geek announcements in this Christmas stocking and a Top 5 "Want-List" of Star Wars spinoffs that hopefully Santa will consider slipping under the tree...someday. So Merry Christmas & Happy New Year...it's The Idle Effect...episode #29! See you all in 2018 for #30!!
As the saying goes..."and Justice for all"...unfortunately...not everyone is a fan of it..."Justice League" that is. Warner Bros has released it's 5th film in the new DC Extended Universe and the people are divided...reviews are mixed...opinions are differing...namely Chuck & Jer's. Not since Holmes V Cooney...The Greasers and The Socs...Krystle vs Alexis...Chinese runway models and gravity, has there been such a knock down, drag out, no holds barred Battle Royale. Also...Jer returns to Vegas, and discovers that you gotta know when to hold 'em (in)...and Chuck makes a one night only return to breakdancing glory. Plus a Top 10 list you'll be most Thankful for! So grab a nice rock hard dinner roll...slap in some freshly carved Turkey and a bit of cranberry...add a sliver of Pumpkin Pie...and tell the family to shut the hell up...because you're trying to enjoy The Idle Effect episode 28!
We know...we...it's been a while...Chuck & Jer took about 4 months off...but hey...let's face it...most of you have barely finished Episode #20 by now...so our extended vacation should help with the catching up process. With that out of the way...Hey!..."Thor Ragnarok" hit theatres!! The boys went to see it...then went again...and now...right here...right now...they talk about it! Not to give too much away...but...*Spoilers*...they kind of liked it...a lot! There's also "Geek Announcements", a pretty healthy "Where Have We Been" piece and Jer introduces a HOT new segment called "Stuff You Just Don't Need" that you really need to hear. So reach for your replica of Mjolnor (we know you've got one)...grab a large stein of Asgardian ale (Pabst will do...or apple juice if your under age or driving) and shout at the top of your lungs "By The Power Of Grayskull!!!" (yeah, yeah...wrong franchise...we know)...or just sit back and listen...either way...enjoy Idle Effect - Episode 27.
Chuck & Jer...Chuck & Jer...don't do whatever a Spider can but LOOKOUT!... they do a Spoiler review! Are they funny...listen bud, they've got radioactive splooge...can they swing from a thread... take a look overhead...Hey there!...There goes Chuck & Jer! Yes...as i'm sure you've guessed by now...this episode includes a full Spiderman Homecoming review/mini recap. Also...Jer's been a few places & seen a few things and can't wait to share...there's geek announcements a plenty and we get the boy's Mt. Rushmore of Stand-Up Comedy. So set your webshooters on stun and get your Spidey sense tinglin' because this here's a kaleidoscope of amusement not to be missed...a cornucopia if you will!
Yes...We can all finally breathe now. Wonder Woman is out and finally DC has put out a movie that's made Marvel's filmmakers fear for their jobs! Ok...maybe we won't go that far...but they did make a movie that didn't suck. Hear us talk about it in a *Spoiler-filled review! But wait...that's not all.. if you act now, you'll get our Top 10 favorite Super Heroes list, Jer Bear's Big Bear adventures, Chuck's Geek Announcements and a free set of Ginsu steak knives. ..ok no knives. ..but there is much, much more right here on our "1/4 Centennial Episode" Twenty-five has arrived!
Chuck and Jer are back and fresh from space truckin' (tacos) with everyone's favorite Custodians of the Cosmos...the Stewards of the Solar System (tacos)...the Conservators of the Constellations, if you will. Yes we're talking about (tacos) "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2"...and now it's time for (tacos) a full *Spoiler* filled review. Also, the guy's list their (tacos) individual Top 10 Comic Book Movies to date...did 1997's Batman & (tacos) Robin make the cut? F*** no it didn't...but find out what (tacos) did, along with geek announcements, news and lots of other (taco) treats, tidbits & delicacies you just can't get anywhere else! So get ready for (tacos) a little Episode 24 all up in ya'!!
First there was COACHELLA...then came STAGECOACH ...now only one event is left to round out the Coachella Valley's indomitable trilogy of Live entertainment. ..but we're still not certain that there will be a DESERT TRIP this year...so as a backup, The Idle Effect goes LIVE once again in Palm Desert, California for Free Comic Book Day. The fans go crazy (due to the heat) as Chuck & Jer challenge their Comic Book knowledge with brain scrambling comic & pop-culture trivia. Special guests include "Whose World" creator J.F .Robbins, AKA Johnny Elsewhere and special appearances by Jer's wife & kid...and an Idle Effect Live episode would not be complete without a bit of Live Taco Talk...so scream for me Long Bea...er...Palm Desert...and put your hands together for Chuck & Jer - Alive and (for once) Censored!!!
Coincidentally that was originally going to be the name of the podcast, but the Douchebag community rejected Chuck for his lack of spray tan usage & Ed Hardy attire. In this supremely solid episode, The Boys are back in town...fresh from Wondercon and they are here to tell you about it. Some exciting trailers have come down the pike... so it only makes sense that there be "Trailer Talk". Chuck has a butt-load of "Geek Announcements". ..Jer expresses his intolerance for bike lanes, bike riders, spam email, the term "Whitewashing" and cow tipping in the nude...ok, not that last one...he's actually a big time advocate of all late night rural town mischief that's perpetrated in the buff. Speaking of rural towns... the boys also list their Top 10 South Park episodes. ..so come on down to episode 22 and have yourself a time!!!
Yes...you guessed it...this episode Chuck & Jer review "Logan"...the story of mutant turned chauffeur James Howlett...who regularly "treks" down to Mexico to help take care of...uh...ooops...this is a spoiler review by the way. Also in this episode...Chuck gets his "Greek" on...Jer attends not one but TWO car auctions!...wha what?...i know!...crazy..right?! The "Trailer Talk" is insane...the "News" is hard hitting...and the "Geek Announcements"??...well let's just say you might want to have a paper towel or two on hand before you tune in...perhaps some Windex as well. The boys serve up their Top 10 Live Albums of all Time!...which reminds me...do you know the title of Wolverine's favorite live album? Well it's *"Adam Antium..LIVE for 200 Years" of course...BOOM! Oh yeah baby...that's why we get paid the big bucks. Enjoy everyone! (*disclaimer..Jer White had no previous knowledge nor was he involved in any way, shape or form with the "crafting" of that last joke...nor does he condone it's use)
You'll have to listen to the episode in order to get the inside / independent joke in the title...but then why wouldn't you listen? Chuck & Jer are gearing up for the big game by barely talking about it...but there's no "unnecessary roughness" when they recap where they've been...Jer "blindsides" with a new "bump and run" Bathroom Adventure while Chuck runs out the clock (truer words have never been spoken) with some "gridiron" Geek Announcements. We've got "no huddle" News and go "man-to-man" while comparing our NFL Mt. (Rush)more lists...does the "Boz" make the cut?...uh...probably not...but hey..."We're not here to start no trouble...we're just here to do the Super Bowl Shuffle! So go "Red right slot 20 pull trap bravo 372 Y stick banana option...on 1...break!...ready!...set!...set hut!...hut!...HIKE!! (do any Quarterbacks actually say "hike" anymore?) Sorry if we "fumbled" a little on this episode description...it was a bit "rushed". (don't worry...the "Pun Police" have been notified and are on their way) AND...( the "quotation" key on our keyboard no longer functions) Enjoy! Go Falcons!
