    Episode 313 - Digital Exploration of Interior Design
    Aired March 29th, 2012
    8 PM, NBC

    Community bounces back from a more subdued episode to one of those wacky ones, with product placement satire meeting 1984, and Vice Dean Laybourne putting in anotherappearance. Anytime John Goodman shows up, it’s a treat, but now he has a braid? Christ on a tortoise, that is genius.

    Anyhoo, Subway has moved into Greendale, and while Shirley and Pierce find a loophole that the controlling interest of any business must be owned by a Greendalestudent, Subway has outsmarted them by buying the name and rights to a man who is now legally known as Subway and is attending Greendale. He’s a “corpo-humanoid”, the logical extension of corporations somehow being people. Because he has a “morality clause” and such (here’s where the 1984 satire comes into play), Pierce and Shirley want Britta to lure Subway into violately the contract, ergo freeing up the sandwich shop spot. She is offendedand refuses to do it ... even though Subway is dreamy.

    Since you're reading this on the Internet and not on some ancient papyrus scroll you recovered from an ancient cave somewhere (I'm assuming), you by now have probably heard about producer/explosive demolition enthusiast Michael Bay's upcoming take on the Teenage Mutant Ninjas Turtles. In the new film, the characters will be neither teenagers nor mutants, but rather aliens who have come to Earth and, somehow, resemble five foot turtles. The Internet, being the place of calm, reasoned discourse that it is, immediately began drawing lots to decide who was going to supply the torches and who would get the pitchforks. And I was ready to join them.

    Welcome back to the $40 Pull List!

    Working on evolving the video a bit - a lighting experiment I attempted didn't work out as well as I had hoped, so I will apologize for that in advance. Going to be working with the audio starting next week to make it a little more uniform. I am still learning, and with that is going to come some misfires! Even still - we went through 7 books in 12 minutes... a big improvement over the first video to say the least! I resisted the urge to rant about Batman for a half an hour, so that probably helped.

    As always, please leave your comments, let me know what you thought about the books on the list this week, and give your suggestions for new books to add for April. That is coming up with next week's video! ...

    What I choose to write about every couple of weeks for my main rants is largely random. I like randomness and chaos. I relish it – not because I am the Joker, but when life doesn't throw curveballs it becomes far too mundane. Writing about the same thing every time gets boring for me, just as reading the same thing all the time gets boring (for some). Still, this week I feel compelled to write about Mass Effect one more time. This is not because I want to but I feel I have to.

    ...yes, the Internet made me do it. ...

    Episode 260: Superheroes Beyond Comics
    by Blake M. Petit & Kenny Fanguy

    Although comic books gave birth to the superhero as we know it, that doesn't mean they've been restricted to the four-color pages all these years. This week, Blake and Kenny share their own top ten lists of superheroes who were born outside of comic books, then dive into some of your suggestions. In the picks, Kenny goes with Aquaman, and Blake chooses Wolverine and the X-Men and the final issue of Tiny Titans. Contact us with comments, suggestions, or anything else at Showcase@CXPulp.com!

    Episode 717 - The Born-Again Identity
    Aired March 23rd, 2012
    9 PM, CW

    Writers of Supernatural – oh please, work with me. I want to like this show, I really do, but every now and then you do these things that make me want to kick you through a plate glass window. Why do you do this to me?

    This is the episode where Sam takes a trip to the looney bin – we've done trips to the looney bin before, but I can live with that – but more importantly, Cas returns. With amnesia, because, you know, that's one soap opera cliché they haven't trotted out yet. And again, I'll give them that, because Cas is such a great character and so somberly acted that I would watch him order a sandwich. His scenes with Dean make this episode. While the slash fiction writers seem to be enamored of “twincest” (ew) with Sam and Dean, they're overlooking the fact that the greatest romance of Dean's life has been with Castiel, the angel that pulled him out of hell. The most fantastic thing about this is neither Dean or Cas are consciously aware of their long running bromance, but it's always been there, which is the best kind of romance. That's why Dean was so devastated when Cas betrayed him by bringing down Sam's mental wall, and yet still devastated when the Leviathans seemingly killed Cas. But this is Supernatural, where dead doesn't always mean permanently dead, and certainly not with the angelic Cas, who seems to have a built in reset button.
