006 – You’re Gonna Need A Rubber Shark

It’s that time again (checks watch) yeah it’s been about 2 weeks so we are back. Much like the “Guerillas Of Soul” (AKA The Commitments) we strike unannounced and then fade back into the night. On this show we discuss: The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina, 3 chickens who escaped and walked into a bar (put you own punchline in there), Mr Robot, whether we would destroy the global financial system given a chance, Ray Donovan, crappy half arsed “immersive” film screenings and a whole lot more. Enjoy it!

Things we reference:

    • Both of heroes watched and very much loved The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina in it’s entirety. It is NOT a kids show, watch it.
    • John Constantine IS a Scouser, he was created by Alan Moore during Saga Of The Swamp Thing and his look was modelled on Sting believe it or not. Sadly though Dan was wrong, actor Matt Ryan is from Swansea, that might explain the wonky accent at times.
    • Dan tips his hat in the direction of Greg Berlanti and the Berlanti-verse as nobody is calling it. He is the man behind Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends Of Tomorrow, Riverdale and now Sabrina too. He’s a busy guy.
    • Caz is finally watching Mr Robot and enjoying it very much so far, it’s a really good show but Dan cautions us that it goes downhill a bit after season 1. Still good but doesn’t maintain that high level quite so much.
    • Dan is watching Ray Donovan which has just started up again with season 6. Such a brilliant show, we encourage you to try it!
    • Fab writes a rant to tell us why he doesn’t like Marvel films, we agree that they are a bit overly long but then disagree with almost everything else he says lol.
    • Both our heroes went to a pretty disastrous screening of Moulin Rouge recently. The only thing immersive about it was the fucking price of the ticket! Get a rubber shark or get off our lawn! We don’t bargain pumpkin fucker!
    • Dan has been learning some new songs and is currently addicted to The Gambler by Kenny Rogers for lest we forget people “you gotta know when to hold em… know when to fold em…” and so on and so forth.
    • Our heroes have made a pact to watch The Expanse because people keep recommending it.
    • Dan also bought a copy of the new book Saving Primate Geoffrey by Michael Boyton (Not Bolton thank god) which is set in the wonderful universe of Professor Elemental.

005 – Number 5 Is Alive!!

Greetings and welcome back to Tales Of The Unattested. In this episode our erstwhile heroes discuss a plethora of topics and air a couple of listener confessions. What would it be like in prison? Dan is pretty convinced Oz was a documentary. Caz outshines her sidekick (as usual) with a story of escapism and ill advised marshmallow binge-ing in the back of a lorry at age 3 or 4… the police were scrambled, the marshmallows were not. Plus on the menu we have dune bashing, flights of whiskey and hallucinogenic raindeer piss. So if all madness sounds like your cup of tea you’ve come to the right place. Step into our office and mind your head on the door ๐Ÿ™‚

Things we reference:

Pitcure of the robot Johnny 5 from short circuit
Johnny 5 approves this message
    • The 1986 film Short Circuit, featuring the incomparable talents ofย  Johnny 5. For lest we forget good listener, “johnny 5 is alive!”.
    • Caz is watching Gotham and loving it, she wants Penguin to win which seems fair enough but both of heroes hate Fish Mooney. Seriously, can she stay dead please? Thx.
    • Dan watched all of Iron Fist Season 2 and has mixed feelings about it but does rate the last episode as worth a watch on it’s own. Skip the rest, you’ll never get that time back.
    • Caz is a mad queen… sorry I mean mad Queen fan (misread the script there) and loved the new film Bohemian Rhapsody.
    • Dan recommends Mister Miracle by Jack Kirby as a great but little known DC character. He’s the ultimate escapologist.
    • Both our heroes are going to watch Daredevil Season 3 (come on the Punisher is in it) and report back.ย  Matt seems very angry in this one and possibly needs a hug. Kingpin is amazing but we already knew that.

Keep dancing people, dance like nobody is watching, you beautiful maniac you.

004 – Blankety Bat… Wang!

In this episode Dan and Caz discuss Reg The Exterminator, Caz is apprehensive about the new Doctor (Who), Dan gets overexcited about Batman’s wang and our heroes spend a loooong time discussing that one. No pun intended. There is also talk of Iron Fist-ing. Basically it’s the dirtiest show we’ve done by far so don’t listen to this one with the kids OK? Good. We’ve sent them to sit in a cold shower and think about what they’ve done, we’re sorry… but not really ๐Ÿ˜‰

003 – Dude Where’s My Batmobile?

Just when you thought it was safe… here we come again, albeit after a little 17 day break. We’ve been busy OK and we make no apologies for that, but we did miss you… especially you in the red shirt… you know who you are… call us ๐Ÿ˜‰ In this episode we discuss the many inconsistencies of the Marvel movie franchise, sabotaging other people’s motorbikes, how to stop a skateboard with your face, why Batman would never misplace his car and much much more. Enjoy!

Things we reference:

  • Fab wrote to tell us how he relates to Nick Sax from Happy! which is on Netflix, great series, well worth a watch.
  • Dan mentioned The Commitments, Howard Marks, JLA: Rock Of Ages by Grant Morrison and more. Seriously check out his other work such as Arkham Asylum and Doom Patrol to name just two, the dude is a genius.
  • Caz is watching ALL the Marvel movies in order and wonders about the lack of female directors?!
  • Dan suggests Punisher: War Zone by Lexi Alexander as a female directed Marvel film. Dan wrongly said Lexi was half Israeli… she’s half Arabic… soooo… nothing contentious about that hey?
  • The Charles Bronson film series neither of our heroes could remember is Death Wish of course!
  • Dan & Caz’s guilty TV pleasure is Insatiable from Netflix, it’s really good and very sexy, but it’s OK as the actress playing Patty is 25, much to Dan’s relief.
  • You can see everything Dan is watching on his Trakt.tv profile page.
  • Caz is learning to skateboard and needs some body armour like this.
  • Dan can’t rap but he does love Hip Hop! Like the following track…

002 – Running Close To The Margins

We’re back! Don’t call it a comeback, we’ve been here for years… ok ok so only one episode previous to this but come on people, work with me here. In this episode we actually have some confessions to read out, 4 to be precise, yeah that’s right 4, count em. We also embrace our usual tangents into stories of our own and pop culture references. There’s talk of how quickly Daredevil would locate an errant dog turd, mystery kitchen fitters, drunken nights out, electric vehicle joy riding and so much more. Pull up a chair and come join us!
