Episode Four

Pacific Rim Part Two – Mecha!

In the lead up to the premiere of PACIFIC RIM, the team here at the Unreliable Sources Podcast has taken it upon ourselves to build you a helpful primer as to the major themes of that movie. Those being: kaiju and mecha.

We dealt with the former part of that pair last week, and this week we’re tackling the biggest and smashiest robots in all of mecha.

In this episode we discuss the proper tactics to avoid a rocket punch, declare Mechani-Kong to be the derpiest mecha of them all, name Crotch Gate as the worst name for a future political scandal, and hope that no one ever makes a mecha gnome.

Please let us know what you thought about this episode by leaving us a comment or filling out the handy-dandy form over on the right side of the page.

EDIT:

Oh no! I realized I told you I would post the Robot Jox gifs and totally forgot. So, consider this me making good.

 

 ROBOT JOX!

It has brilliant acting and visionary directing.

Oh, and let’s not forget the robotic chainsaw penis.

CRASH AND BURN!
