005 - After Trivially Crucial 005

This week Mandy and Michael are back to a normal too-long Post Show! 

This week's discussed media: 

  • Hawkeye / Pizza Dog
  • Saga
  • A bunch of other comics
  • Mandy yelling at her puppy
  • Limitless
  • Pitch Perfect
  • Sherlock
  • The Hypernaturals (another comic)
  • Star Wars Extended
  • Doctor Who
  • The *second* while-recording-Post-Show purchase
  • Under the Dome
  • Sequels & Alternates negatively affecting originals
  • Upcoming stuff!



003 - After Trivially Crucial 003

This week's Post Show starts with 56 minutes (!!) of Michael futilely and sadly attempting to convince Mandy of the storytelling merits of one of his favorite recent video games, thatgamecompany's Journey .

After that near-hour (feel free to skip!), Mandy and Michael talk about:

  • Spider-Men
  • Hayao Miyazaki
  • Differences between Japanese manga and American comics
  • Lots of comics (lots!)

Finally, you can bear witness to a while-recording team-based purchase of a reasonably priced hardcover volume of Y: The Last Man .


002 - After Trivially Crucial 002

This week the Post Show is actually shorter  than the show itself!

This week, Mandy and Michael discuss: 

  • Now You See Me
  • Fast & Furious 6
  • Real Steel
  • Upstream Color
  • Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance
  • The Inheritance Trilogy
  • Merlin
  • Young Avengers
  • Guardians of the Galaxy background and movie news
  • Indestructible Hulk
  • Smallville Season 11
  • Insufferable
  • Doctor Who news and general show discussion

001 - After Trivially Crucial 001

The very first post show! After recording our first episode, we just kept recording. Perhaps telling of how our conversations go, the Post Show is actually longer than the real episode.

Enjoy an off-the-cuff conversation between Michael and Mandy as it gets continually interrupted by Mandy's dogs and her savior of the evening, the air-conditioning guy (who apparently is familiar with Doctor Who)!

Enclosed is all kinds of discussion of media the two of us have been working through lately. Some, but not all, of our topics are (bold indicates significant spoilers):

  • Marvel Unlimited
  • Ultimate Spider-Man
  • Brian K. Vaughan
  • LOST
  • Star Trek Into Darkness
  • Wreck-It Ralph , and how Michael feels it failed him despite his best efforts to love it
  • Tron: Legacy 
  • Tron: Uprising
  • The end of Doctor Who Series 7
  • The Great Gatsby
  • The current Wheel of Time  / Doctor Who  crossover that is Mandy's life.
