MFX: MFXtra: 3 Pints with Betty – Ep 20.
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…
The lads continue to battle on through lockdown life, no showers, new nicknames and Duckman is in a weird head space this week. There’s some fun lockdown stories about a South Korean football team, Marc shares another ridiculously embarrassing childhood story about himself and Duckman wonders if Scotland is the only country to broadcast commercials reminding parents not to beat their kids during lockdown. It’s a fun time as always.
The lads say goodbye to comedy legend Fred Willard – one of the most familiar faces in Hollywood and one of the funniest actors of all time. There’s tons of Star Wars related chat on the show this week with Duckman giving some love to Mandalorian and the making of series of the show currently showing on Disney Plus. Marc has some big casting news for Season 2 of The Mandalorian that is super exciting!
Marc has some news on a new Star Trek show, Duckman is all about Nicolas Cage being cast as Joe Exotic for the new scripted series based on Tiger King. There’s some news on Fox’s Marvel project New Mutants finally getting a theatrical release. Plus both lads are super happy that one of their favourite TV shows of the past few years – Umbrella Academy – has announced a release date for its much anticipated second season.
Then it’s time to finish the show with another Hell on Reels segment. It’s bad Fantasy movies this week and you guys voted for 2000s Dungeons and Dragons movie. Marc is a long time D and D player and this movie almost kills his love for the game. Yep, it’s that bad. Horrible acting, worse CGI, Jeremy Iron’s inhaling scenery and over acting like a mad man, terrible attempts at comedy and not a single person in the movie rolls a D20. A terrible movie, but a damn fun review as always.
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.
