E28 – ReBoot Part 4



ReBoot takes entirely too long to show that Bob is back, the final showdown with Megabyte takes place, Hex gets a new mask, and the show hits the reset button.

Meanwhile, Michael continuously harps on the absurdity of removing two characters from an ensemble cast and expecting them to carry the show by themselves, Peter accidentally theorizes some probable creepy ReBoot fanfiction, and both lament the loss of Megabyte.

Also included: pregnant binomes, faster than light travel in Warhammer 40k, and a musical retelling of the plot of ReBoot.

Next week: ReBoot season 4

E27 – ReBoot Part 3



Enzo becomes a badass, the Guardians turn evil, and Frisket is… pretty much the same as always. It’s ReBoot season 3!

Meanwhile, Michael compares grown up Enzo (matrix)’s character design to Lobo and defines the Yuli-Grayson scale of kid sidekick irritation, Peter rants about an episode featuring a graveyard of badly-designed superhero characters, and both theorize on why the post-timeskip episodes miss the mark.

Also included: talking once again about Burger King Kid’s Club, horrifying driver’s ed videos, and Jason Voorhees and the Argonauts.

Next episode: ReBoot season 3, episodes 9-16

E26 – ReBoot Part 2



Nothing like a season-ending cliffhanger to cancel a series on.

ReBoot’s sudden leap in quality makes Michael wonder if there’s a sort of Stockholm Syndrome attached to watching some of these shows, Peter questions what a zoot suit is, and both hosts struggle to come up with synonyms for “creepy.”

Also included: reminiscing about a failed Deep Space 9 podcast, Enzo reveals his tragic backstory, and comparing the Megabyte truck from “Bad Bob” to Maximum Overdrive.

Next week: ReBoot season 3, episodes 1-8

E25 – ReBoot Part 1



ReBoot.  The Holy Grail of dated CGI cartoons.

In this episode, we introduce the possibility of rebooting our podcast, Peter talks about taking family beach vacations and watching ReBoot recorded on VHS instead of enjoying the beach, and Michael discovers another pet peeve about shows for children.

Also included: discussing canned sound effects that annoy us, the aging process of CGI, and the suggestion that Hexadecimal is a more iconic villain than the Joker.
