Lee, Kerry, Greg and Leah are finally back to talk more outer space super hero stuff with James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2" (2017). This lively and sometimes argumentative discussion gets into some of the deeper psychology of family dynamics, in what's otherwise a silly action film full of daffy jokes.

Lee, Greg, Kerry, and guest host Lady Leah talk about 2016's "Doctor Strange". Is it a good origin story? Does it matter much in the overall grand scheme of the MCU? Does it have a bad guy in it that's worth a damn? Is it okay that the Ancient One isn't Asian? All of this and more can be found in this crazy mirror dimension of an episode.

Daniel, Lee, Greg and Kerry return to chat about "Captain America: Civil War" (2016). Opinions on this one are far more split than usual, as the hosts debate if this is even really a Captain America film or an Avengers film. Does Spiderman and Black Panther have to be in this? Is the Winter Soldier worth a damn? Do the action scenes at least hold up? Is there enough meat in this two and a half hour film for it to be worth your time? All this and more, so come fight us about it in an airport or something.

The gang is back after being trapped in the quantum realm for a couple of months. This time out they talk about the first "Ant-Man" film, which features a winning comedy formula, and a super hero who can fit into a person's butthole.

Lee, Daniel, Kerry and Greg return to give their opinions on the 11th film in the MCU, and the second installment of the Avengers series. In this fast and loose episode, pretty much the full range of opinions are given up in this conversation, as the hosts ponder Hulk and Black Widow almost fucking; Tony Stark yet again creating the main villain; Hawkeye having a family; and just how many people would have really died in the various over-the-top CGI action scenes.

Daniel, Lee, Kerry and Greg have a fun chat about a really fun MCU film, "Guardians of the Galaxy" from 2014. The hosts spend a lot of time just talking about their favourite moments in this first real look into the outer space side of the MCU, and discuss how this snarky action-comedy manages to softball pitch the viewer a shit ton of world building and main plot threads for future films in the series.

Lee, Greg and Kerry try and stay warm and one step ahead of their enemies, while touching upon what makes "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" (2014) one of the better entries in the MCU. The more low-key, yet deeper plot, the character work, and the action scenes are talked about, as well as if the Winter Soldier is worth a damn as a character.

Dan, Lee, Kerry and Greg are back to talk about the much-maligned second Thor film, "Thor: The Dark World" (2013). For a film that was plagued with many production problems, is there anything worth praising in it? Talk of space elves, long shafts, and red space splooge are just a few of the things touched upon in this episode.

Daniel, Lee, Greg & Kerry sometimes talk about this singular entry into the MCU when they are not talking over each other, and not being drawn down drunken rabbit holes by Lee. Tony Stark out of the suit and talking too much; suits built just for shitting out of; the validity of how they did the Mandarin; and why the fuck the rest of the Avengers are not around, are just a few of the many things talked about in this disaster of an episode.

Daniel, Lee, Greg and Kerry tackle the first big team-up movie for the MCU. Does it hold up? Is it too long? Are there any Marvel villains worth a shit? All of this and more.

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?
