MFX: MFXtra: 3 Pints with Betty – Ep 22.
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 and reviews the full 3PB treatment. On the show this week…
Tons of video game chat to kick things off this week. Marc joined Duckman, his brother and his 9 year old nephew Eoin for some games of Fortnite. Hear all about how MFX Squad got the win, laughed their asses off and had a damn good time. Also hear all about how Duckman’s brother doesn’t know his left from his right, which caused an epic blow-out between the Duck brothers. Plus Duckman is deep into Last of Us 2, so the lads discuss the game, don’t worry though, no spoilers for this huge and incredibly awesome game. Marc has news on Dr Disrespect’s perma-ban from Twitch, plus news on allegations against a popular You Tuber Angry Joe and allegations against comedian Chris D’Elia.
Duckman LOVES What We Do In The Shadows and implores everyone listening to go watch the funniest show on TV. The lads discuss Hollywood’s weird and pretty pointless response to the BLM movement. Hey Hollywood, removing old TV shows isn’t the answer to ending systemic racism. How about you put some people of colour into real positions of power?
Tons of Batman chat this week as the lads cover the news that Michael Keaton is rumoured to be returning to play Batman in the upcoming Flash movie, yeah, we’ll believe it when we see it too. Legendary director Joel Schumacher recently passed away, the lads discuss his career, which leads nicely into this week’s Hell on Reels segment – Schumacher’s weird fever dream of a Batman movie, Batman and Robin. The lads go through this high camp, terribly acted, horrifically scripted movie, which actually turns out to be a ton of fun. This movie is bad, but in a fun way. This review is another high point for 3PB – so much fun.
So get listening, what else are going to do during lockdown? Get this show, get some insights, some laughs and some nerd news goodness. So sit back, relax, and enjoy some 3PB in your life.
