E42 – Tenchi Universe Part 1



Tenchi Universe starts out of the gate with repeated spaceship crashes, and from there… well…

We’re back to the adventures of a nondescript teenage boy pursued by six alien women. And it never stops being weird. Meanwhile, Peter compares Tenchi Unvierse to reality television, Michael vents his frustration with a glimpse of characterization, and both hosts wish one of the aliens pursuing Tenchi was a weird jellyfish monster.

Also included: Giant Scooby-Doo and his ability to clean up cotton candy, Animorphs, and the dark fate of Tenchi characters

Next episode: Tenchi Universe episodes 14-26


E41 – Batman: Mask of the Phantasm



Batman: Mask of the Phantasm reveals the Dark Knight’s origins, but at least we don’t have to see Tom and Martha getting shot for the billionth time.

As the Phantasm terrorizes Gotham mobsters, Michael examines his biases against the DCEU, and realizes the unenviable job of the people who are working on the franchise. Meanwhile, Peter compares Batman to major religious figures, and both consider the tools of pre-Batman vigilante Bruce Wayne.

Also included: repeated use of the phrase “the less said the better” referring to Batman’s more shameful media appearances, a pointless explanation of who Batman is, Will Smith’s Suicide Squad music video

Next episode: Tenchi Universe episodes 1-13

Darien gets taken by the Negaverse and brainwashed. Meanwhile, Sailor Moon and Sailor Venus hang out and go to the hairdresser.

E39 – Sailor Moon Part 3
