Episode Seven

Spoiler Episode: Pacific Rim Wrap-Up

Fair warning, this episode is filled with spoilers. You’ve been warned.

Well, since we blew two whole episodes (mecha and kaiju) talking about what you needed to know before you see Pacific Rim, we figured we might as well spend a even longer third episode telling you what we thought of it.

So, that’s exactly what we did.

Along the way we stumble through a Saved by the Bell cold open, Shawn nearly ends Zach’s marriage, we probably spend a bit too long describing the sound kaiju would make getting it on with various other things, and Captain America’s booty is used as a rating system.

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.

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!

Episode Three

Pacific Rim Part One – Kaiju!

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.

This week we focus on the kaiju half of that pair, those lovable, destructive, gigantic Japanese monsters that are looking to obliterate a city near you.

In this episode we invent a Mothra movie that never existed, sing a horrible rendition of Cyndi Lauper’s true colors, debate if Paul Bunyan is really just an American kaiju, and give you our best kaiju roars!

Tune in next week when we bring you up to speed on mecha and all things giant and robotic
