Pop! Pop! Ep. 12- Watchmen T.V. Show?

On episode 12 of Pop! Pop! the Pop Culture Podcast! The LA Nerd and Taylor welcome their very own roommate Patrick Geraghty to the studio to dish out some Nerd News!  The guys share solace over the fact that Pacific Rim 2 has been pulled from its release date; talk trash on Zack Snyder, his infamous slow motion sex scenes and his terrible music choices; and dream about a world where the X-Men are apart of the Marvel universe.  They also drool over Emmanuel Lubezki’s cinematography in The Revenant; cry for Leo Dicaprio’s nonexistent Oscar; speculate which new cast member of The Force Awakens is a Jedi; and last but not least they weigh the pros and cons of a Watchmen TV series on HBO (there’s also more Zack Snyder trash talking there too).

All of this and of course MORE on this week’s episode of Pop! Pop! the Pop Culture Podcast!
