Daniel, Lee, Kerry, Greg, and Greg's better half, Agnes, talk about "Captain America: The First Avenger" (2011). How does it rank with the rest of the MCU? Is it a good origin story and set-up for "The Avengers"? Does it tackle WW2 and the Nazis with any level of depth? Does it really have to? Plenty is covered in a short time on this one.

Daniel and Lee are joined once again by their friend Kerry to tackle the first Marvel film about the god of thunder himself, "Thor", from 2011. Is it unfairly overlooked? In general, where does it sit in the MCU? Why does Lee have questions about Asgard and Stan Lee's inability to pick up Thor's hammer during his cameo? All of this and more are explored.

Daniel and Lee are joined by their friends Greg and Kerry to talk about "Iron Man 2" (2010). Is it any good? Even if it is, does it matter in the big picture of the MCU? Did Mickey Rourke try too hard for this film? How fucking hot is Scarlett Johansson even before the Black Widow costume? All of this and more is talked about in this episode.

Daniel and Lee are joined by writer, musician, fellow podcaster, and good friend Kit Power, to cover the second film in the MCU, "The Incredible Hulk" (2008). Is this film rightly treated like the forgotten disfigured son it is, locked up in the attic and fed fishheads from a bucket? Or is it highly underrated? Is it at least better than Ang Lee's Hulk film?

Daniel and Lee have decided to start a side project looking at the Marvel Cinematic Universe films in chronological order. Don't expect these to come out on as regular a schedule as TMBDOS! or Blood on the Tracks, and don't expect them to be as research-heavy as their movie reviews often are. This series will be far more casual and laid back, trying to only focus in on some key points and eventually get to the hosts overall impressions of the big picture the entire franchise paints.
In this episode they start with the film that started it all: "Iron Man" (2008). Does it still hold up today or is it one of the worst of the whole MCU in retrospect?
