Episode 100.3: Smallville: Absolute Justice

The 100th episode closes out in spectacular fashion with Jonesy and Dale essentially hosting a discussion of Smallville, beards and other stuff!

Dale starts this one off by introducing listeners to the "fact" that he and Jonesy have been the real reason for AC's success. Well, the jokes on them because this show is far from a success! AHA!

Anyway, we talk about Smallville in this segment and beards, and food and other stuff. It was recorded very late at night.

Episode 100.2: The Princess Bride

The party just keeps on going as @adcustom joins the gang to talk The Princess Bride and why he picked that handle...

First, we read a legendarily epic letter courtesy of Dave Finn, our resident Aussie. He's also known for his mean Crocodile Dundee impersonation so give him a round of applause.

We also dip into a rather lengthy What's Up With Paul segment but we kept getting knocked off target by diatribes. Like when Andrew and Seth argue about whether or not Pixar is making too many sequels for twenty minutes...

And then we review The Princess Bride. A cinema classic, gloreously dissected by your favorite talk show hosts and the guy who does Polycomics Book Club.

If you liked this episode check out all the others we've done. There are actually more than just 100... Oh and see us on the web at or or on Twitter @ancillarytweets.

Letters to and, obviously, ratings/reviews on iTunes help us out.

Episode 99: Comic Book Fatigue

Don Garvey joins the gang to help them work through a case of comic book fatigue in episode 99.

Allen, Don, Ethan, Paul and Seth read a couple letters about DC television properties, and what they read outside of the comics medium. 

Then they get to the meat of the show. Not literal meat though, because that would be gross. They talk about what happens when you get sick and tired of something you thought you loved. Can you come back to it or is it broken? Find out.
