(Widge's Note: Sorry for the delay on this one, I'm in deadline hell and having to work on this when the files I'm editing are busy saving and whatnot. So consider this our Christmas and New Year's special. The Outtakes episode will follow and we will resume in a bit.)
It's Weekend Justice: the Internet's #1 audio trainwreck, the podcast that is like a fruitcake in that it's not pleasant if you ingest it and it lasts for years.
It's Weekend Justice: the Internet's #1 audio trainwreck--the podcast that is holding a Black Friday sale like no other: 15% off all bullshit if you just say the phrase that pays. That phrase is, of course, "Who set the weasels in my pants on fire?"
So, Iron Man 3 kicks off the second phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I know there's some division among people as to what they did with this film--stuff we can't go into here for spoiler reasons--but I'm on the side of enjoying it. After rewatching #2 in prep for The Avengers, I figured the worst thing you could say about #2 is that, well, it wasn't the first film. And the first film was a pretty mind-blowing experience. I think #3 here ranks higher than that--it's not the first film, no, but it at least shows that the people running this train are aware that, unlike the comics, we can't just have Tony facing down Other Guys In Armor every time he shows up. Because that would get old as hell. I was sent a Blu-Ray disc to check out the setup, and it's a decent haul: the main event's audio and video are very solid and, for fans of the film, worth snagging on their own. The commentary with writer/director Shane Black and writer Drew Pearce takes a while to get going but when they are actually delivering info, it's good stuff. Other small bits include a gag reel, deleted scenes, and a behind the scenes featurette. Highlights include the One Shot "Agent Carter" which brings Hayley Atwell back in the role--and is pretty sweet (and might be a fifteen minute TV pilot?)--and also a breakdown of how much of the Air Force One attack was actually shot. I got the same feeling from it that I got from the semi-flip in Dark Knight...sort of not surprised to learn it was real. But all the people involved are fairly insane. Again, if you're enjoying the Marvel CU, then this is worth snagging. (Click here to buy it from Amazon.)
It's Weekend Justice: the Internet's #1 audio trainwreck--the podcast that wants to put Dirk Benedict and Abe Vigoda in a new TV show where they team-up and fight crime. And don't pretend you wouldn't watch the hell out of that.

It's Weekend Justice: the Internet's #1 audio trainwreck--the podcast that survived DragonCon, survived its own Ultimate Universe and now comes face to face with the Black Bolt equivalent of a squeegasm. Thanks, Clark Gregg. Thanks a bunch, buddy.
Please note: the following bit is going to be extremely Boardwalk EmpireSpoilercentric. If you are not caught up with the second-to-last episode of Season 3, "Two Imposters," then run away and come back when you're up to speed.
Seriously. After the jump we're going to get right into it.
It's Weekend Justice: the Internet's #1 audio trainwreck. It's the podcast that, because it is smarter than its participants, thinks quietly to itself that they're thinking about an alternate version of the movie Q where it faced off against Brian Dennehy. But again, it can only speak through the sound board. So...alas.
It's Weekend Justice: the Internet's #1 audio trainwreck. It's the podcast that stars the crimefighting child-like miscreants that were once devised by Franklin W. Dixon to stars in books to be used to punish bad little boys and girls who spent too much time in front of the television. Little did the Stratemeyer crew know what they were unleashing upon the world...
