MFX: MFXtra: 3 Pints with Betty – Ep 19.
Welcome one and welcome all, the bar is open, the drinks are poured, so raise a glass to all the biggest nerd news stories of the past couple of weeks. Join your heroes Duckman and Marc Abrigo as they give nerd news the full 3PB treatment. On the show this week…
Duckman and Marc get used to the new normal, which involves new nicknames, adventures on Instagram with a pro-wrestler and inappropriate photographs. Marc gives an update on his lockdown manbun that he’s been rocking recently. Duckman marvels at Post Malone’s Nirvana tribute show on You Tube. Plus the mood is lifted with a special Parks and Rec reunion show, done via zoom. It’s the new normal people.
There’s a lack of nerd news at the moment. So the lads are going down the trash tv rabbit hole with a car crash of a show called 90 Day Fiancée, Before the 90 Days. The lads are all about Big Ed and Rosemarie. A 54 year old man with no neck and mayo in his hair, goes to Marc’s homeland of the Philippines to meet up with Rose. Cultural clashes and hilarity ensue.
A couple of nerd news stories are covered, it’s not all trash TV talk! AMC Theatres and Universal are at war, over Trolls no less! What does this mean for future Universal releases? What will a post COVID-19 world look like for both theatres and on demand? Kevin Smith has been making headlines with some Mallrats 2 casting news and the lads have a quick chat about that. Duckman laments the recent comics from Charlie Cox that he won’t be playing Daredevil should the Man Without Fear appear in the MCU. Plus a huge leak in the games industry around the much anticipated sequel to The Last of Us has made headlines. Marc has all the details, but don’t worry – no spoilers here.
The show is wrapped up, as usual, with an awesome Hell on Reels! This week it was bad video game movies and we really did have to watch a bad one. This week it’s Dead or Alive. It’s such a great time as Duckman learns about jiggle physics. This movie is basically 90 mins of gratuitous shots of hot women in bikinis doing dodgy looking martial arts. Everyone fights, no one dies, everyone does the splits. This is sucky movie, but an amazing, giggle filled review!
So get listening, what else are going to do during lockdown? Get this show, get some laughs and some nerd news goodness. So sit back, relax and enjoy some 3PB in your life.
