In this episode, we try something a bit new to the fanboys....
Instead of spending yet one more episode constantly picking apart a movie and examining all the ways they went wrong with it??
This time we actually take a look at the script of a movie that we COULD have gotten..... and then just didn't.
So join us as we examine not the ways that they went wrong, but the ways that they could have gone so right with Star Wars Episode 9: Duel Of Fates.... only to screw us all and shove Rise Of Skywalker down our throats.
In this episode, we come at you without many of the bells and whistles and without our usual polished sound as our hosts put all the fun and games aside (well, almost all of them) in order to have another serious conversation.
A few weeks ago it was the Coronavirus, and this week, rather than going back to our regularly scheduled program and all its gloriously lighthearted fun, the fanboys come at you with heavy hearts and talk a bout race and race relations as they exist on so many levels within this country.
They try to make you think, make you feel, and yes, from time to time even attempt to make you laugh in these dark times, all while tackling a topic that is no laughing matter...... and is so much bigger than one man.
So much bigger than George Floyd....
So much bigger than Michael Brown....
So much bigger than Breonna Taylor....
And to close it all out, the boys not only step aside and leave you with the words of someone who is so much better with words than they are..... Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, who poignantly asks "Where are you?".
But after you let Dwayne's awesome message soak in, the Fanboys also invite you to observe a moment of white noise...... 8:46 seconds of it to be exact, so we can all realize how long really is, and how much longer it likely was as a man lay struggling for breath,
From here on out The Rev & RPM will be relocating the show to https://anchor.fm/fickle-fanboy-podcast and to Anchor's official app.
We will be releasing any and all newest episodes there going forward and beginning in the near future, but you will not see any of those here on Soundcloud.
If you follow us through our RSS feed or anywhere else for that matter, those places will luckily not be effected and will continue to receive any and all episodes we continue to put out.
Sorry for any inconvenience, and I hope you will seek us out at our new home on Anchor and will continue to join us over the months and years to come.
We're just gettin' started....... just not here.
We might be able to go outside now, but just because we can doesn't mean we should...
So just incase you're still practicing social distancing from the rest of society and enjoying most (if not all) of your days as you continue to partake in the #StayInsideChallenge???
Take a moment and come join us as we talk the crazy state of the world, as well as some of the great movies & tv shows that you can and should dive right into as you attempt to kill as much time as you possibly can while making sure the coronavirus doesn't kill you or anyone you know!
Now that Rise of Skywalker as come and thankfully gone, join The Fanboys as they take a moment to talk everything Star Wars, reminisce about all 9 films in the Skywalker saga, and ponder which trilogy stands above the rest.
What happens when you take one man who's grown up loving, adoring and cherishing everything the franchise has to offer, and one man who views all things Star Wars as "overly cheesy"???
Well, in a moment like that you just have to sit back, enjoy the debate and hope one of them doesn't slug the other one right in the freakin' mouth!
We're back, and back with a vengeance!
Join us as we start our 5th season by letting R.P.M. do what he does best, trying to torture Reverend Jess (this time by making him sit through the fun as they cover Howard The Duck)
Will it kill Jess? Drive him Insane??..... or will it simply backfire horribly on our lovely host?!
Lets find out together!!
Only on "The Fickle Fanboy"!!!
Join us this week on our Christmas Special/Season 4 Season Finale, as we bring back a fan fave!
The Fickle Fanboy Round Table!
So enjoy R.P.M, The Rev, a few old favorites, and a hand full of new guests as we talk the current state of pro wrestling!!!
And just like any family during the holidays, we laugh, we cry, hell.... we even fight a little!
See you all next year!!!
This week, the fanboys continue their journey into trying to bring justice to the Suicide Squad where you could take them beyond just the one initial cinematic outing we discussed a few episodes back.
Ron Perlman as Deathstroke?? Bruce Campbell as Cluemaster?!! It's all here, and more! This week on The Fickle Fanboy
This week we ring in the holiday season by running down the biggest, most offensive comicbook characters ever! So if you have the stomach for it after gorging on all that turkey, give it a listen and enjoy! (Not for the easily offended/NSFW)
In this day and age of Disney continuously ressurecting and ruining many of our favorite childhood flicks, we spend this Halloween special hypothesizing about what it would be like if the mouse finally joined forces with the likes of John Carpenter!
What if any number of Disney icons bashed heads with one of Carpenters countless classics!
What would that be like? What would happen?! What sort of horrific mashups could finally see the light of day?!?!
Listen & find out our thoughts on the matter, this week on The Fickle Fanboy!
This week, find out what happens when a coversation about all the life lessons that can be learned by Star Trek, goes completely wrong, as the boys continously try to offend eachother all while refusing to practice anything they even attempt to preach!
What happens this week when two fanboys review Suicide Squad and try to fix it???
Well, they can at least come to an agreement that it sucks.... but beyond that???
One wants to hold his comic books close to his heart while portraying Bane as if you ripped the jacked up beast straight out of the pages of Knightfall or Conquest, while still being slightly hesitant to include Joker even though the Squad themselves did at one time another.
And the other wants to play fast and lose with the rules of the comics, while still doing Task Force X and a whole lot of other comic book characters justice!
But again, at least they can agree that what we all got in 2016 was absolutely horrible!

Join us as we cover "EXPOSED!: Pro Wrestling's Greatest Secrets" and review an oldschool TV special that, as fanboys? We truly enjoyed roasting over the coals over and over.....

ALL THIS AND MORE, THIS WEEK ON THE FICKLE FANBOY!

All that, Harrison Ford's career, Amy Schumer and more! This week on The Fickle Fanboy Podcast!
Come join us in our triumphant season 4 return, as we celebrate w/ a new theme song & even a new co-host, as Rev. Jess from The Church Absurd Podcast joins us to discuss a few of our favorite items from an extensive list of wrestling rumors & myths that was brought to our attention by the great El Jordano Diablo of Above/Below Ent. (https://twitter.com/AboveBelowEnt)
This episode, we celebrate International Podcast Day w/ our 50th episode, as we take a look at a small group of the cartoon character community who are all as kind, decent, and honorable as can be.......... but who are all really just as evil as the devil himself!
As everybody's favorite segment "The Shit List" returns, we take a look at some cartoons that should be given the Hollywood treatment & made into movies, but probably won't be, as well as a few cartoons that should never be made into a full length feature film, but because there's no justice in the world... probably will be!
Join us as we venture to that corner of reality where "Through The Eyes Of A Fanboy" & "The Best Of The Worst Of Wrestling" meet, as The Fanboy reviews, and attempts to salvage the dumpster fire that is, was and always will be Hulk Hogan's "Suburban Commando", as he tries his damnedest to make it entertaining as hell...................... or at least bearable........... BROTHER!!
They say you can't keep a good man down, and apparently the same can be said for The Fanboy, cause he ain't dead yet! So join him this episode as he breaks down just a fraction of the reasons why Superman is indeed little more, than a super prick.
In this episode, we are joined by a not so esteemed panel of spurious celebs to ask ourselves whether or not Disney is destroying the movie going experience for generations to come!
Featuring Rev. Jess from The Church Absurd (https://soundcloud.com/fatlulzradio)
In this 2nd season finale, before we can look forward into 2018 and what the 3rd season of The Fanboy might have in store for us, we look at a team of crime fighting pimps & ho's and just exactly how you might do them justice on the big screen, with an installment of The Good, The Bad & The Fugly.... all about The Super Pimps
After a slight hiatus, we're back w/ an all new segment of "Through The Eyes Of A Fanboy" as we gear up for Halloween just around the corner w/ a look at this fanboy's favorite horror/comedy in an absolute classic! Army Of Darkness!........... Groovy
In this weeks ep., we bring back our beloved "What If" segment, as we ask & answer the question "What if the great game developers of the world were so starved for cash that they all sort of went batshit crazy???...... What kind of messed up games would we see put out for our consumption?"
In this weeks "Shits" segment, we count down a mishmash of some of the stupidest fanboy myths and legends of all time! And this time? We're not focusing on any one damned thing!! IT'S ALL ON THE TABLE, SO EAT UP!
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! THE BEST OF THE WORST OF WRESTLING! AND IN THIS EPISODE OF THE SEGMENT, WE EXAMINE THE CLUSTERMUCK THAT WAS WRESTLEMANIA 8, AND THE GREATNESS THAT THE NONSENSICAL BOOKING ACTUALLY ENDED UP CAUSING!
In this special 4th of July episode, we get down and dirty as we blow up the entire DCU with a fun little ride as The Fanboy gives you all a 2 for 1 or 4 for 1 depending on how you look at it, with The Good, The Bad, And The Fugly..... Gotham City Sirens & Clayface!
On this episode of The Shits, we run down a list of the worst video games ever made......... those that are, were and always will be absolute crap.
So this time out may be filled with items that are every gamers nightmare...... but it oughta be a lotta fun, eh?
After taking a look at Batman '89, 'The Fickle One' follows that little venture up w/ a look at some more assholes from the world of comics as he introduces a new segment & begins to break down why some of your favorite superheroes, not only aren't all that super, but are really just plain ol' jerks!..... This week?? Marvels Illuminati! So join me as I cover why Doc Strange, Iron Man, Mr. Fantastic & The Hulk are simply gigantic bastards! Cause this should be fun!!
This week, we take a look at one of The Fanboy's favorites, with Batman '89.... Through The Eyes of A Fanboy, as we look back at the movie that started it all for the Superhero genre as we know it today.... but is this flick worthy of all of the love that it gets?
You may be surprised at the answer!
In this weeks episode the Fanboy looks at many of the times throughout history that we looked at a movie, felt we'd been through this all before, and said "I liked it better back when it was called....."
In this episode, we take a look at a pair of villains deeply rooted within comic book history, real history and Greek mythology as, in preparation for the Wonder Woman movie coming out in a few months, we study up on Ares & Circes and how they might be done justice on film.
On this episode we introduce a new segment we've called The Shits, where we run down lists that were hot shit, horrible shit and every little nugget in between!... This week we begin with a list of the most underappreciated & underutilized wrestlers in all of WWE history, as we all look to those who deserved the belt, but never got the chance.
In this episode, we take a glance at everything you may have missed if you haven't yet seen one of the greatest comicbook movies of all time in Ryan' Reynold's Deadpool, as we also try to break the record amount of F' Bomb's set within the movie at an earth shattering 84............... and yeah....... we sort of crushed that one............ sorry Ryan...... but not really.
In this season finale of season one for the Fickle Fanboy, we go forward by going back. The first episode the show ever did was all Star Wars all the time, as it was unleashed shortly after the release of Force Awakens.
And today? We take a closer look at that very film in the last installment of retrospectives that have focused their rage toward each and every movie that has plagued the saga thus far, as we again save you time and money by running down everything that happened in the movie so you don't have to waste the time watching it.....
Total saga hours saved and put back into your life so that you can do something reasonable with your life??? Six.................You're welcome.
See you soon for Season 2!
We get ready for the unleashing of Rogue One w/ the lead up to the last episode of the show's first season. In this raw and ramblin' 3 hour special episode, I hash and rehash my thoughts on what you could do to the Star Wars Saga to make it better if you were to scrap it and start anew with the release of this New Hope Standalone Prequel...
The 6th installment of a series of retro-reviews looking back at the complete Star Wars Saga, one by one, as this week, we look to Return Of The Jedi as I've now saved you over 4 hours of Lucas filled run time all together! So I guess one could also say that I've saved you some heartbreak along with saving you that time as well.......... so you're welcome!
The 5th installment of a series of retro-reviews looking back at the complete Star Wars Saga, one by one, as we look at Empire Strikes Back.... and, seeing as I've now saved you over 3 and a half hours of Lucas filled run time all together? I guess one could also say that I've also been continuing my journey to try & help save you some heartbreak along with the time....
The 4th installment of a series of retro-reviews looking back at the complete Star Wars Saga, one by one, as we look at New Hope.... and, seeing as I've now saved you almost two and a half of prequel run time all together? And another hour with this one, I guess one could also say that w/ this episode? I'm also continuing my journey to try & help save you some heartbreak & time.....
The third installment of a series of retro-reviews looking back at the complete Star Wars Saga, one by one, as we look at Revenge Of The Sith.... and, seeing as I've now saved you almost two hours of prequel run time all together? I guess one could also say that with this episode? I'm also continuing my journey to try & help save you some heartache and break as well the time...
The second installment of a series of retro-reviews looking back at the complete Star Wars Saga, one by one, as we look at Attack Of The Clones and, seeing as I've now saved you about an hour and a half of prequel run time all together? I guess one could also say that with this episode, I'm also continuing my journey to try & help save you some heartache and break as well.
While he'll be back in a few days w/ his regular episodes, in honor of International Podcast Day, The Fickle Fanboy opens up his mailbag to answer some questions from you and other podcasters as best he can.
The start of a series of retro-reviews looking back at the complete Star Wars Saga, one by one.... starting with Phantom Menace & ending with Force Awakens just days before Rogue One is set to open around the world!
A look at Batman villain Victor Zsasz, and how he might be done some sort of justice should they ever choose to portray him on film............. and no......... that bit in Batman Begins doesn't count!
I told you the war would begin again soon..... and now?
Shots fired, cause this time I save you all a bit of time in life by reviewing everything of importance that happened In Super Mario Brothers The Movie.
But this time? While covering it all in about half the time it would take you to watch the freakin' flick, I also begin steering this ship in a new direction as I simultaneously attempt to fix the movie for future generations should they ever choose to go back down that well.
.... It's time to be more the solution then the problem.... and that starts here.
Ten episodes of ranting and raving & you've been hitting the download button, but you haven't truly been listening or paying attention.....
6 months and nothings changed or gotten better......
So now?....... Because of you???
In two weeks, the war truly begins................. again.
Cause in two weeks, I stop just the usual bitching & whining, and I begin to take a more proactive approach it it all.......
Yeah.... I'll still be complaining & cussin'......
But I'll stop just tearing it all down.....
And from now on?
I start tryin' to fix things....
So, 8/7/16- 10:00........... Will you stand by us in this fight???
vbfx83e2 As time goes by and the years pass, you're likely to find that you will seemingly stumble onto some of the most invaluable life lessons that you may ever learn.... doing so not only by accident, but also in some of the strangest fucking spots imaginable.
For me? That spot was Evergreen Terrace....
And the people that taught me those lessons?
The residence of Springfield....
The Simpsons family...
In this episode I introduce a new segment I like to call "The Good, The Bad And The Fugly" where I look at characters so repugnantly and repulsively stupid, that to add them into ANY cinematic universe would likely spell "DOOM" for us all......
And much like the retro-review episodes that came before it.... if you like "The Fugly"?...... Well then, you can be sure that there will be more to come.... of that? I promise you...
Just as I had with wrestling and my look back at Wrestlemania 9, I save you all a little time with a retro-review of Transformers 1986 animated movie as I cover it all in less time then it would take you to watch the damned thing, while also looking back at how great the franchise was before Bay got his hands on it.
Last week I went about tearing Awakens a new one, but this week? I explain that movies like that? Are all our fault as fanboys. Which frankly? I doubt is something that really needs to be explained even though we keep biting ourselves in the rear-end with clustermucks like Crystal Skull over and over again....
