s02 e15 Top 5 Friends Thanksgiving Episodes

November 21, 2018

It's Thanksgiving and although we're Canadians (eh?) that doesn't mean we can't celebrate with our neighbours to the south!

 

Pop culture wouldn't be what it is today if it weren't for a special 90's sitcom. No, we're not talking about Seinfeld -- this is  a show about... well, Friends! Since they had 10 seasons of turkey carving fun under their belt, Marc and Jeannette thought it'd be a great time to talk about the top five Friends Thanksgiving episodes.

 

If you aren't suffering from the meat sweats, come join us for the list that Dhani from Watching My Stories helped us put together. Also, check out the podcast she does with her husband John on Sunday. Do they disagree with this list as much as your favourite divorcing duo does? There's only one way to find out so search, subscribe and download their show for free wherever you find great podcasts!

s02 e14 Remembering Stan Lee

November 14, 2018

On Monday, the comic book industry lost a legend as Stan Lee passed away at the age of 95.

 

In honour of the pop culture icon, Marc and Jeannette are leaving the lists behind. Dedicating this week's entire episode to the Walt Disney of comics, the two talk about their favourite characters, cameos and share their own thoughts on The Man himself.

 

It's our tribute to a man who changed the comic book landscape, creating multi-billion dollar franchises and this era's modern mythology in the process. Excelsior!

s02 e08 Top 5 Comic Book Movie Sequel Disasters

October 3, 2018

While it isn't breaking news, Marc and Jeannette have switched this week's top 5 topic !

 

Instead of a list of news events from the 90's, the two are taking a different path. In the wake of another delay for Dark Phoenix (most likely the last chapter from Fox in their X-Men saga,) the divorcing duo is counting down the top comic book movie sequel disasters instead! Which film fills Marc with an uncontrollable rage? Which comic book character/characters appear twice? Who blatantly abuses our time limit buzzer the most and what's the main reason for bat nipples: Was it a well-planned out scheme by Mr. Schumacher or simply a matter of comfort?

 

Tune in for every question you never knew you needed the answers to and more on Pop Culture Nickel! It's the hottest 35 minutes you'll find in pod culture entertainment today!
