Jimmy joined the roundtables for the new Comedy Central series ANOTHER PERIOD. Natasha Leggero, Riki Lindholme, Michael Ian Black, Armen Weitzman, Paget Brewster, Jeremy Konner were all present and hilarious! Michael Ian Black was so damn dry and sarcastic and it was brilliant! Jimmy tried not to let his crush on Natasha Leggero show too much. On the last day of Comic Con, Jimmy did the roundtables for the new FX show SEX&DRUGS&ROCK&ROLL chatting with stars Dennis Leary, Liz Gillies, Elaine Hendrix, John Corbett, Robert Kelly, John Ales. Leary and Gillies already seem to have great chemistry in person as well as on screen playing father and daughter. While these aren't necessarily shows that fall in the nerd realm, we like to cover as a variety of stuff at Comic Con as we all have a diverse taste in entertainment. Leave your iTunes comments! 5 stars and nothing but love!

Jimmy joined the roundtables for the upcoming CBS show SUPERGIRL while at Comic Con. You'll hear from Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, David Harewood, Andrew Kriesberg (Showrunner), Sarah Schecter (Executive Producer). The CNI mic is pointed directly at the talent so you'll hear them the best (and that's more important!) so apologies if the media questions are a bit muddled. The show's trailers look really fun and everyone sounded genuinely enthusiastic to be involved in it. Especially Mehcad, whom was a blast to have on. Some great hints on the series debut.

Jimmy decides to take a break from all of the massive SDCC coverage to hit you up with some reviews and news from the past few weeks! It's a quickie solo episode as it's very last minute. We've been playing nothing but SDCC related podcasts and miss reviewing comics and sharing the news so we thought we'd jump back into the fray with a last regular format show. We know you missed hearing Jimmy's beautiful voice. Well, okay...he missed recording. News includes:

  • Adam McKay  & Funny or Die are teaming with Archie Comics for an Archie musical.
  • Judge Dredd: America collected edition is finally available in actual America. 
  • MoCCA announces new venue/dates.
  • New production company Modern Prometheus will adapt Paul Pope's The One Trick Rip-Off to film. 
  • Disney is releasing a giant Miyazaki blu-ray collection in November. 
  • Matt Ryan's Constantine will make an appearance in an upcoming Season 4 episode of Arrow
  • Chris Pine will be Steve Trevor in the upcoming Wonder Woman film. 
  • Tom Hardy will produce and possibly star in an adaptation of the Vertigo comic series 100 Bullets. 
  • The sides have been chosen for the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. 
  • And much more!
