Infinity War ep really irked me

* Hodgman’s really bad “lol offensive” jokes
* Griffin’s lazy Jack Kirby take (Kirby wasn’t put on Jimmy Olsen as a knock by DC, he was such a good dude he asked to be put on a book that didn’t have a creative team so he wouldn’t take someone else’s job and the general vibe he put out that Kirby was some opportunistic meathead when everyone acknowledges he was just one of the greatest guys)
* David’s super stretchy take he’s repeated on so many eps about what he thinks Infinity War is about, I’m genuinely baffled by why he thinks he has to have a big point, it feels like he wanted a Griffin-esque point so badly to prove him wrong that it’s a great movie (“endgame is so brilliant because it forces you to realize this isn’t too big and you love characters!” is odd considering if you’ve made it this far I think you know you love these characters)

I'm tempted to offer a Detroit-area Blankie a ride to Toronto just to force myself to do it.


Somehow convinced my wife to go see it this weekend with me. We have one decently close by and the idiot in me is pushing for dbox as well.

Its more jarring to me because it seems very out of character,comes from out of nowhere in the middle of nerd talk, its not even remotely self-aware and its in my memory the first guest whos ever done that and its... mild mannered john hodgman. Its offensive sure, but its also just completely bizarre.

He was riffing on the Shane Gillis thing that had just happened, maybe it was still too much, but that’s the context at least.

I guess that's the gist in hindsight? but if you're talking about that and the joke is how *you* push boundaries by misusing the word "presume" or something, and then 40 minutes go by without a word about it and you just say a pretty bad racial slur when an actor enters the screen its kinda hard to connect it. like even after that and David literally saying ... uh... hey what? racial slurs are not really punchlines on this show... they didn't even try to explain how it happened or what he was really going for or anything. am I remembering that right?

For some reason David constantly interrupting, talking over, and finishing guests’ thoughts is really getting to me lately. I still love the show, but I wish he’d just get comfortable listening and not having to let his voice be heard for a few minutes here and there.

That being said, really excited for the Gemini Man ep, hoping for some real Griff takes on all the meta narratives lurking in this thing.

Well, it's about the joker movie and they have nothing remotely interesting to say about it? It's not their fault, aside from having decided to do it. I don't think anyone could make a podcast that's listenable about it. The chapo one was terrible too

I gotcha. i haven't really kept up with the discourse surrounding this movie despite what was unavoidable so maybe that made it a more interesting discussion for me.

Other than this episode I guess
