It's getting so deep that they are pondering what it is to be human. Are homunculi human? Do they deserve the same rights and considerations as the humans who created them. And what about those homunculi from Fullmetal Alchemist? Surely there is something to be learned from their plight. So in this episode of Outlaw Barz, Bah Hum-bug-culi, the ladies opine on the treatment of homunculi and why they deserve better. This may be the start of a movement.

This one is extra spicy as BenHaMeen brings the heat and the hammer down on the controversy and Tatiana King tries valiantly to keep it under control. Press play, and the only way we would ever Cancel Black Panther was after fifty eleven sequels when they make him a white dude.

George Romero might be the Father of the modern zombie film (& tv show & comic) but he also made other movies and we thought what better way to honor the maestro than to discuss a pair of his lesser known earlier works: SEASON OF THE WITCH (1972) and THE CRAZIES (1973) -- both of which will be included in the upcoming "Between Night & Dawn" box set dedicated to Romero's earlier non "Dead" output.

Star Trek Byke!!! Welcome to another episode of FanBrosShow aka the For All Nerds Show! We discuss geek culture from the perspective of people of color so you know we had to discuss Star Trek: Discovery and our overall love for the first two episodes. We give some love and much needed attention to our friends and family down in Puerto Rico, with some ways the geek community can help in the recovery, plus the Chico Leo returns to give a personal update on the situation.
As always we answer any and all listeners questions in the Geekquently Asked Questions segment, Tatiana speaks on the latest in tech news in Tech Talk With Tatiana and BenHaMeen breaks down why Marvel: Legacy is more of the same in Comics I Copped.
Chico Leo byke as well so we couldn't close out without a Pick Of The Week, and a blessing and RIP to the late great Hugh Hefner. He lived long and prospered.
In this surprisingly suitable for work episode of Outlaw Barz, You Got Some BD in Your SM, the ladies tackle BDSM themes in anime. And they were joined by the lovely Wonderosa, who chimed in all the way from Japan to share her experiences living there as a Black woman. Don't mind that noise. There might have been a typhoon in the background.

Game Of Thrones Season Seven Recap & Review (Castle Black)
Oh you thought it was over? You thought that Castle Black wouldn't break down the entire season seven of Game Of Thrones? You thought we would just end the show after Jon & Dany ruined Deadly Diva's virginal vision? You thought Tatiana wouldn't tear the season apart to discover every nook and cranny in the production? BenHaMeen wouldn't bring the sexual slander to the discussion? You thought wrong friend.
Castle Black returns to break down season seven of Game Of Thrones and look out for the ENTIRE SHOW SERIES RECAP coming very soon. That's right we will start from the beginning of Game Of Thrones to recap the entire series from the start, episode by episode. We know we've been late, but we are always on time.
Happy Bornday to the man who we owe all of this to, the one and only, First Of His Word, Mr. George RR Martin. Thank you for everything from the good folks at Castle Black.
Before you say anything yes we know Tyrese didn't go on a Twitter Tantrum but Instagram doesn't work for the alliteration. It's another jam packed episode of FanBrosShow as BenHaMeen & Tatiana King break down the week in geek news from the perspective of people of color. But you already knew that because you've been subscribed since day one and are already following us on Twitter, Instagram & Spotify!
Every character can't be beloved at first sight. In fact, some of our favorite characters started off as our least favorite characters. Still others have backstories that would curl the straightest hair. In fact, it's their maturation and development that carved a special place in our cold, cold hearts. In this episode of Outlaw Barz, You Came A Long Way Baby, the ladies discuss their favorite redemption arcs.
P.S. - There may have been a kind word said about Dragonball Z.

After a week off Los Leos are back in the Dungeon talking about Maniac Cops & Old NYC. Using William Lustig's 1988 cult classic MANIAC COP as a jumping off point discussing police in horror, the conversation ranges far and wide from 19th Century Draft Riots to 21st Century asset forfeiture and David Simon's DEUCE to James Cameron's T-1000 and a lot in betwixt & between. Listen now to The Scream Squad!
Gawds Work is being done every day, but this is an instant classic as BenHaMeen's secret mission is finally revealed. Listen to find out exactly why the captain of the spaceship is now calling himself Brand New Ben. The circle of trust has become the one ring of power and the For All Nerds crew are celebrating in the spaceship. It's the return of BenHaMeen & Tatiana!

After a short break, the Slambros, Boman12L and Illa YC,return for the 35th/39th episode! Like Rick Flair, your boys are not dead yet and are kicking out at two! Hurricanes be damned! The dirt sheets are filled with the latest updates on Rick Flair’s health scare. Injury reports on Kenny Omega. Plus the latest on John Cena’s possible next big movie role. No episode of Slambros would be complete without the latest chapter in the epic saga of Alberto El Parton!
Once again, the week of WWE programming is filled with questionable decisions. Why did Big Show shave or why is Enzo the number one contender for the Cruiserweight title? The Slambros are with you as always to make sense of this madness. We have full recaps for RAW, Smackdown Live and more inside as well. To stay tuned!

Here's a little Labor Day Love from your friends at FanBrosShow! Yes we know that this episode might just be a few days late, so we brought the one and only Chico Leo back into the spaceship just for you! Not only that but we are also joined by Ales Kot & Andre Araujo of the hit series Generation Gone! Listen as they speak on why Generation Gone has struck such a chord with the buying public, and what it means to make politically tinged comics in our current generation.
Plus Tatiana takes over Comics I Copped for the missing BenHaMeen, Chico returns with a Pick Of The Week, and the Geekquently Asked Questions gets good and grimy this week. Just the way we like it.
Spark up the grill or the green and kick back with this Labor Day Love with the FanBros!
We tried to avoid it. We didn’t want to do it. But we would be doing you a disservice if we dismissed Netflix’s Death Nope... sorry we meant Death Note, without viewing it. We went in knowing it was going to be a dumpster fire defecating on a series that a certain Diva genuinely enjoys. Yet still we rose to the occasion. Too bad Death Note didn’t do the same. So, in this episode, aptly titled The Lie Called Death Note, the ladies dissect what could have been, but definitely was not, a good movie. Now, has anyone seen a Diva's notebook? It's black... Nevermind I found it. Time to rewatch the credits.

Castle Black - The Dragon And The Wolf (S7 Finale Recap)
Through dragonfire and family reunions and really terrible ideas, we've somehow made it to the end of the second to last (!) season of Game of Thrones. The episode "The Dragon and The Wolf" serves as the Season 7 finale of everyone's favorite logic-deficient show. But don't get it twisted--we still love watching. And it's that love that drives Tatiana, BenHaMeen, and Deadly Diva to march onward (and northward?) to save the realms with some knowledge, shade and the usual banter on this week's GoT recap. Listen NOW to "The Blackest Game of Thrones Podcast"--Castle Black!

Welcome back squad to yet another hair-raising episode of The Scream Squad. Your capable leaders Leo Faierman and Chico Leo are back to analyze and review horror movies that you absolutely need to see.
We've kicked it with killer kids, we've spoken about satanic seniors,--but this week we talk about Postpartum Horror. We dive into the topic with two different movies from two different countries, that take a look at two different pregnancies, both infused with two different evils--2009's Grace and 2016's Shelley.
Beyond The Wall is the penultimate episode of Game Of Thrones seventh season and the watchers at the wall of Castle Black are here to give their review of one of the most action packed episodes yet. Tatiana, BenHaMeen & The Deadly Diva bring the knowledge and humor to The Blackest Game Of Thrones Podcast In All Of The Realms.

SlamBros: Summerslam 2017 – Back to Brooklyn Back Again
Summerslam 2017 is once again returning to Brooklyn. Meaning the Slambros, Boman12L and Illa YC, return for a special 34th/ 38th edition of your favorite problematic wrestling podcast! SummerSlam 2017 is a packed card with way too matches on the billing. We have predictions for most of them (Boman’s note: Yeah, somehow we missed AJ Styles vs Kevin Owens, big card yo!) How will the Singh Brothers be murdered this time? Is it possible to tell the Usos apart? Can Boman still care about a Bray Wyatt match in 2017? We have answers to all of those plus predictions for John Cena vs Baron Corbin, Jinder Mahal vs Shinsuke Nakamura, Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns vs Braun Strowman vs Samoa Joe and more. Also, no Slambros would be complete without the latest episode of ¡Las Aventuras de Alberto El Patrón y sus Amigos!

Self Care For Superheroes, because sometimes we all need to take a step back and relax and breathe. So take a second and join BenHaMeen and Tatiana King as they discuss ways to relax, answer some of the geekquently asked questions and all the usual segments that you know and love.
Well, well well... Look who folks were foolish enough to let back in the building. It makes an Outlaw wonder what she has to do to incur the wrath of the gods. Never one to squander an opportunity, or miss a chance to keep a party going, the ladies decided to extend the anniversary shenanigans. And this time it's all about you, the beloved listeners. So in this episode of Outlaw Barz, What's in the Bag, the ladies shake up the mailbag and answer a ton of your questions...and wonder if y'all really love them. Seriously, they love Attack on Titan as much as the next Outlaw, but that doesn't mean they want to live in that hellscape of a world.

Castle Black - EastWatch (Game Of Thrones Season 7 Episode 5 Recap)
On the latest episode of Castle Black we tackle the tough questions about "EastWatch" the fifth episode of the seventh season of Game Of Thrones.
Spoilers abound so if you haven't seen Eastwatch yet you might want to go do that before you join us for this as we try and figure out how Bronn is so damn magical, why does Daenerys keep giving Jon Snow the come eff me eyes, and what was the bigger reveal? That Gendry is still alive? Or that Jorah Mormont is still a sucker for love?
Much more on this episode as Tatiana King, Deadly Diva and Benhameen dive into Game of Thrones on Castle Black, Thee Blackest Game Of Thrones Podcast in all of the realms.
If the last week of programming has taught us anything, there are no good people in the WWE right now, but at least we have the Fashion Files. The Slambros, Boman12L and Illa YC, return for the 33rd / 38th episode and reflect on the current WWE product or what some would describe as lack of product. SummerSlam is only a few weeks away but plans have changed because of injuries to a few key superstars. If the dirt sheets are correct, it would appear Enzo really is an unpopular character backstage. Plus, the latest episode in our longest running drama series – ¡Las Aventuras de Alberto El Patrón y sus Amigos!
While both main brand shows have been solid--often filled with one or two good matches-- not much has been memorable with the build to this year’s SummerSlam. As good as they have been, it's saying a lot when a Fashion Files segment is the best things on a two hour show. Much of that is the result of booking changes and poor executions of stories. Still, the Slambros work through it and have recaps for RAW and Smackdown Live inside. We have more, so stay tuned to the Slambros!

Disney Is Gangster but you already knew that so lets talk about the triumphant return of The Chico Leo to the spaceship! That's correct, one half of The Scream Squad has returned from his spacewalk for this very special episode! We also had to bring along Joe Illidge, the reigning Mayor of FanBrosShow on Foursquare, so you know Comics I Copped is super lit. Plus we answer some of the best from the fans in Geekquently Asked Questions, and a very special Tech Talk With Tatiana. But where is the Queen of the ship? Listen to find out.
This week Los Leos are back in the Dungeon to discuss a pair of films with some twisted takes on theology. In The Witchfinder General there's no silver bullet to counter a silver tongue when superstition is used as a cudgel against chaos. Meanwhile in The Wicker Man, we see what really happens when an upstanding (and uptight) citizen ends up with too much of that old-time religion...

Outlaw Barz - It's A Smexy Celebration (NSFW 1st Anniversary)
Do you know what today is? In the words of a certain 90's R&B group, it's our anniversary! That's right folks, it has been one whole year since you started rocking with the ladies of Outlaw Barz!
So what better way to celebrate such a momentous occasion than to get the band back together. That's right -- Jade is back!
In this anniversary episode of Outlaw Barz, It's A Celebration, Jade meets Tam and the ladies chat directly about something they've been dancing around for a year, smexy anime content.

Confederacy Of Dunces (FanBrosShow Special Delivery)
It's an extra special Special Delivery this week as Illa YC, Deadly Diva & Benhameen convene to speak on the uproar over #NoConfederate and why hashtag activism matters. But first up we have to break down "The Queen's Justice", one of the most action packed and game changing episodes of Game Of Thrones. If you thought that Dany & Jon meeting was as good as it gets, wait until you hear Outlaw Barz own Deadly Diva break down what really matters in the episode.
Plus Benha & Illa speak on Insecure and why it is simply one of the best shows on television, and how Power is still one of the most entertaining shows on television. What a conundrum.
Somehow the Slambros, Boman12L and Illa YC, survived WWE Battleground (one of the worst PPVs all year) and are able to give you the 32nd/36th edition of the show! The dirt sheets return this week on a somber note. After 21 years, Mark Henry will be hanging up the boots to transition to a backstage role. Shane McMahon somehow took a bump from a helicopter. Also, Brock Lesnar may be returning to the UFC – again. No Slambros would be complete without the latest episode in our longest running drama series - ¡Las Aventuras de Alberto El Patrón y sus Amigos!
Boman ponders some new problematic gimmick matches the WWE can use after the terrible Battleground; plus, there are recaps for RAW and Smackdown Live inside. We have more, so stay tuned to the Slambros!

We're sure you've heard a lot about Netflix's Castlevania series from everywhere, including our very own OutlawBarz anime podcast. Now its Los Leo's turn to analyze and critique the series, but this time from the horror perspective. Join in now as Leo Faierman and Chico Leo take a critical lens to Castlevania, and explore if it was a great addition to the sub-genre of vampire horror--or if it just sucked. Plus, the two Leos say their farewells to the master of horror cinema, George Romero.
Infinite Civil War seems to be what HBO wants to sell us, but the For All Nerds crew is not having it today or any day for that matter. We break down exactly why Confederacy, the new series from Benoiff & Weiss on HBO, is a huge effing mistake to say the least. While there is a slim chance that this show will redeem itself, Tatiana & Benhameen break down exactly why this might not have been the best choice for these creators to follow Game of Thrones.
One of our deepest Geekquently Asked Questions ever this week, plus Tech Talk with Tatiana, SDCC special Comics I Copped preview, our thoughts on the Infinity War trailer, plus much more on this jam packed episode of the worlds most popular podcast, FanBrosShow.
If you are of a certain age, you may have played a certain side scrolling game where you fought, as member of the Belmont family, against Dracula and his minions. That game, you may or may not remember was called Castlevania. It spawned a ton of sequels, one of which Diva still plays. Word on the street is she was fond of the Belmont whip and those lovely flying crosses. But that is neither nor there. Because in this Episode of Outlaw Barz, Whip It Good, the ladies chat about the latest incarnation of Castlevania as presented by Netflix -- full of pretty new baes and rife with commentary about the evil that men do and corruption in the church.
Anime Mentioned in this Episode:

No matter what happens, remember the Slambros always told you Alberto was that dude! Boman12l and Illa YC return for the 31st /35th episode!
Could we be witnessing the series finale of Las Aventuras…? Our Hero Alberto has gotten into some messes before, this latest one could see is marriage to Paige delayed once again but also strip him of his new unified title he won not two weeks ago. What really happened in Orlando? Is this the strike to finally tear down the house of Patron? There’s no dirt sheets week to make room for this super-sized episode of ¡Las Aventuras de Alberto El Patrón y sus Amigos!
Great Balls of Fire was a really good show, meaning RAW has a lot of momentum this Week. Samoa Joe and Brock Lesnar continue to show great chemistry together, while Roman appears to be out of place. The Hardys may or may not be broken soon and Bo Dallas won an award!
Smackdown Live continues to build its roster up, even when wrestlers are not wrestling with great backstage interactions and prerecorded videos. Still WWE’s gauntlet of PPV means Smackdown Live has Battleground to build too and feuds featuring AJ Styles, John Cena, Rusev, Jinder Mahal, Naomi and Kevin Owens, it has a lot of work to do in two hours.

Not our longest of interviews but we still managed to get into whether or not it's a problem that Asian characters play the sidekick role in cinema. Plus we get into what makes Wish Upon one of the scariest movies of the summer so make sure you check it when it drops.

Diva, determined to shed her good girl recommendation image, offered up a bonafide anime classic for the more mature anime viewer. In this episode of Outlaw Barz, Excuse Me, Who Are You?, the ladies discuss Satoshi Kon's psychological thriller Perfect Blue. The ladies, as well as the main character Mima, fall down a rabbit hole of mental instability, complex set-ups, and situations more uncomfortable than showing up at your best friend's wedding to find out she's marrying your boyfriend who supposedly lived overseas.

Say his name and with Samoa Magic, Samoa Joe will appear. Be prepared because an ass whooping is not far behind. No worries though, the Slambros, Boman12L and Ila YC, put all the respect on Joe’s names and are able to return for the new episode! Leading off the dirt sheets this week, we have a returning Mauro Ranallo to NXT, Kurt Angle has a rumored opponent for his return to the WWE ring and once again Shelton Benjamin is in talks to return to the WWE.

This week on Mock and Shock, Los Leos don their gardening gear and dig into the fertile ground of "fake" docs in the horror genre. From New Zealand we pay our respects to recent Mockumentary "What We Do In The Shadows" and unearth 1992's BBC legendary game-changing Shockumentary "Ghost Hunter" (which only aired a single time because too many people believed it was real!). We hop to 1999 to discuss the (commercially successful) rise of the found-footage horrors like The Blair Witch Project and compare whose relatives were the most frightened during the mass panic inducing grandaddy of radio dramas, The War of the Worlds.
So put on your tin foil hat, lock yourself in your safe room and pray that there's no Shyamalan plot twist in sight as we dive into this week's Scream Squad!
The Goddess Of Thrones herself Yetide Badaki joins the FanBrosShow for this exclusive and inclusive interview in which we discuss the entire season of American Gods!

Before wrestlers start falling off ladders into tables during the upcoming Money in The Bank 2017 PPV, The Slambros return for the 32th/ 28th episode. While Illa YC is off on another martial arts journey, The Boman12l is joined by special guest 5thavechef to breakdown all things professional wrestling. New Japan Pro Wrestling’s first US show has one stacked card: Okada Vs. Cody, Elgin Vs. Kenny Omega, Juice Robinson vs. Zack Sabre Jr, Tanahashi vs. Billy Gunn! There is something for everyone on the G1 Special. Strowman has been cleared to return. The Monster among Men could appear on TV very soon, along with John Cena, who is returning from his latest batch of filming as a “free agent” in the WWE. Lastly, no episode would be complete without the latest adventures of Alberto El Patron, who continues to teach the younger generation of wrestlers knowledge.
RAW opened up with a great brawl between Brock Lesnar and Samoa Joe. Then the rest of show fell victim to the NBA finals. Smackdown fared better, their tag team division continues to thrive. Breezango are still one of the best acts in pro wrestling right now. Lana returned and is now one of the biggest unknowns, who is booked in a title match for Sunday. Also both the women’s and men’s Ladder match could feature plenty of surprises. We have predictions for Money in the Bank and more inside, so stay tuned to the Slambros!

If you could not tell, we won’t blame you, as this week’s RAW didn’t do much as the go home show for the Extreme Rules 2017 PPV. There were some good matches, but most of the show was buying time, waiting for the upcoming PPV to advance story lines. Smackdown faired a better, as the blue brand continues to let talents like Breezango and Usos shine. We have predictions for Extreme Rules 2017 and more in side, so stay tuned to the Slambros!

Innocent until proven guilty. That is the basic premise of the criminal justice system in the United States. However, as we know all too well, some people are not afforded the privilege of being presumed innocent.
In this episode of Outlaw Barz, Setups and Sabotage, the ladies examine some examples of justice gone awry in anime. From doppelgängers and possessions to cases of mistaken identity and government set-ups, there is no shortage of messed up situations for our favorite characters to overcome.

When they try, even the WWE can put on a decent PPV, even if it features The King of Sleep Style, Randy Orton facing Bray Wyatt in a terrible match. The Boman12L and Illa YC return for the 29th/25th episode of The Slambros!
The dirty sheets are popping this week with Billy Corgan is back in the news, once again still trying to keep his wrestling dreams alive. Cody Rhodes has likely chosen a new home promotion. Adam Cole is the hottest free agent in Pro Wrestling right now. Jack Swagger is adjusting to the indie life. Oh course, we have the latest updates on Alberto El Patron!
The Slambros reflect on Payback, A mostly solid PPV by the WWE. Everyone from Chris Jericho, Kevin Owens, Alexa Bliss, Braun Strownman and Roman Reigns had a great showing at the PPV. The House of Horrors match was the only blight and what a blight it was. Even after weeks of trying to figure out what the match was supposed to be, it failed to deliver or make sense in anyway.
WWE followed a most solid PPV with a good RAW and Smackdown Live as well. With Brock Lesnar on vacation. The Intercontinental Championship is the top belt on RAW for the time being. Things are looking up, as Fin Balor, The Miz, Seth Rolling and Deam Ambrose are tasked with holding down RAW in the interim. Over on Smackdown Live, we have likely seem the end of Chris Jericho’s magical run. He’s off to tour with Fozzy, but before he had one more match with Kevin Owens. Meanwhile the mean girls of the Welcoming Committee continue to run rough shot of the woman’s division. Plus thankfully, The King of Sleep Style, Randy Orton was not on SDLive this week. There’s more inside, so stayed tuned!

That's right folks with Free Comic Book Day this weekend we had to get Joe to discuss the ins and outs of the industry as well as what it feels like to be apart of the hottest new superhero universe on the planet.
But that's not all, we also had to dig into the archives and bring you our exclusive interview with April Reign, the star of Essence's Woke 100 magazine cover and the creator of #OscarsSoWhite.

Listen as they speak on Sleight and why it's much more than an average super hero story. Join us and catch Sleight in theaters April 28th!
Hey Outlawz, let's talk a bit about a little something called "The Harry Potter Syndrome." What's that you ask? Think about it. Harry is an average wizard with a really great support system and an even better PR department. Honestly, he was a legend before he was potty trained. But how much of his fame was earned and how much was thrust upon him?
In this episode of Outlaw Barz, the Diva and Sopé chat about those characters that get by with more that a little help from their friends...and explore a long overlooked Naruto theory.
List of Anime Mentioned in this Episode:
Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan)
Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler)
So many horror movies play off humanity's primal fears of Mother Nature-- often taking the form of the Supernatural... but from weather to plants, the earth beneath our feet to the other species who walk up on it, nature itself has been serving up stories since the beginning of time and perhaps none more so than those involving our fellow animals.
While Jamie Righetti couldn't make it to the Dungeon this week, lucky for us, Chico Leo got to discuss a couple of "animals in horror" movies with special guest Wendy Mays, host of the entertaining animal-oriented Pet Cinematary podcast.
On this week's episode, Chico and Wendy dig into the 1989 classic Pet Sematary before doing a deep dive into last year's (surprise) hit shark-attack thriller The Shallows. Along the way they shout-out some other animal-themed horror faves.
As always, thanks for listening and Keep Screaming!
Where were you the night Braun Strowman became Legend? The Slambros, Boman12L and Illa YC, return for the 28th / 24th episode and breakdown how much malice is needed to flip a damn ambulance on its side.
The Dirt sheets are filled with tragic ends and injuries this week. We say goodbye to Matt Anoa AKA “Rosey” everyone’s favorite Superhero in training. Dash Wilder is injured and Kasuyori Shibata may never wrestle again. On a lighter note, WWE maybe looking to bring the “Broken Hardy” Universe to the WWE Universe. Plus the latest episode of ¡Las Aventuras de Alberto El Patrón y sus Amigos!
The main segment is all about Braun Strowman. For two weeks in a row, Braun ruled RAW. Not only did he attempt to murder Roman Reigns on live T.V., him and Big Show once again torn down the ring in RAW’s main event. The legend of Braun wasn’t the only thing happening in the WWE Universe. The Superstar shakeup appears to have bolstered the RAW roster with the best of Smackdown Live’s talent, while the blue brand was left with the scraps. Boman wonders if there is any way to get momentum behind the Bray Wyatt character, while Illa struggles to describe Randy Orton without using the word “boring.” RAW and Smackdown Live recaps and more inside, so stay tuned!

American Gawds. New Hashtag alert. That's correct folks it's one of our most star studded episodes eva as Orlando Jones, Ricky Whittle, Emily Browning, Ian McShane, Crispin Glover and Yetide Badaki join us to discuss the instant classic American Gods. We've already peeped half of the season of the Starz show but we keep it spoiler free as we get into some of the deeper meanings and interpretations of both the book and the series. Trust it's another banger in the chamber as we dive into the deep end of what it means to be an American Gawd in 2017.
Plus as always we have the Geekquently Asked Questions, Tech Talk With Tatiana, and Comics I Copped with Benhameen! We also gush out over The Last Jedi trailer, and Benha explains why this might be the first Star Wars film he isn't that hype about. Lies.
The Colorblind Guerrilla? Did we really go there? Yes we did. After the fourth anniversary extravaganza last week it seems that the floodgates to Trifling Heights are, once again, wide open and we had to welcome everyone's favorite Nina Simone rendition to the island.
Don't worry we don't spend too much time there as we were too busy rejoicing over the Thor: Ragnarok teaser, Josh Brolin as Cable in Deadpool 2, and much more!
We all have our our reasons for watching anime. For some of us, it's the action sequences. For others, it's the phenomenal soundtracks. Still others are captivated by the storytelling. Then there are people like us -- people who may or may not ogle animated characters. In this episode of Outlaw Barz, Let's Here It for the Bishounen, the ladies take a much needed break to appreciate some of anime's finest beauties. No worries. This is still mostly suitable for work...and yes, we are talking about Attack on Titan as well. We waited too long to not talk about it.
List of Anime Mentioned in this Episode:
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations
Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan)

Squad Up! It's double the trouble this week on The Scream Squad as we have dos Leos in the dungeon to discuss sinister doubles. Leo Faierman from Black Comics Chat joins us to discuss Enemy, a 2013 Denis Villeneuve film that is puzzling but irresistible and unsettling. Are the doubles real or just projections of what we wish to be? Next up, Andrzej Zulawski's banned but beautiful classic, Possession, also picks up on the theme of an idealized self and the slow, ugly end of a marriage. Finally. we discuss De Palma's love of Hitchcock with Sisters and the dark secrets hidden in one broken family. Don't miss it!
Dirt sheets are light this week, with Jim Ross returning to his WWE family and Alberto El Patron forming a new family. Boman ponders the possible benefits and loses of WWE buying Ring of Honor. Plus, Shelton Benjamin has been cleared to return to action. Mostly the Slambros are here to recap the many wrestling related events that took place in and around Orlando this past week.
In the main segment, The Slambros go over the show of shows. For the most part, WrestleMania was a good event, but maybe it is time the WWE consider a shorter show. Seven hours is a lot wrestling for anyone to endure in one sitting. While some matches like AJ vs Shane blew expectations away, other like Randy Orton vs Bray Wyatt failed to achieve anything. And of course, The Slambros have contrasting opinions about Undertaker vs Roman Reigns. We have all of the card covered, plus The RAW and SDLive after Mania and more on the aftermath of WrestleMania inside. so stayed tuned

WrestleMania 33 in Orlando is here, that means it is time for another special edition of The Slambros. Mega Ran once again joins Boman12L and Illa YC, on this Super-sized 26th/22th edition. It has been a slightly confusing journey to WrestleMania 33 this year. After one of the best Royal Rumbles in years, the WWE committed to a WrestleMania cards that very few people were excited for. Disappointing or not, you make predictions for the WrestleMania card you got not the one you wish you had.
The WrestleMania 33 preshow, an infinite desert of struggle talent, a wasteland of 17 hours of promo packages and forgotten wrestlers is home to the at least two Title matches. The first being The RAW Tag Team Championship, now being contested as a ladder match. Smackdown’s women are also competing on the preshow – All of them – for a change to win their brands title. Round things out is the annual Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal AKA- The Jobber Battle Royal – AKA Illa YC’s “cash these checks” Battle Royal.
Shane McMahan vs AJ Styles, Roman Reigns vs The Undertaker, John Cena and Nikkie Bella vs The Miz and Maryse and main card of WrestleMania has its share of questionable matches. Still the steller work of The Miz, Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens are bond to make up for it. Plus there is Lesnar vs Goldberg. Will this be another 30 Sec Squash or a hoss fight? We have the whole card covered, so stayed tuned

Benhameen & Tatiana speak with Allison about everything from the hit film including how it feels to play the white woman everyone loves to hate, what it was like on set of Jordan Peele's first film, and why do white women always get a pass?
Plus a very important Tech Talk with Tatiana, Comics I Copped with Benhameen and we debate about whether or not Justice League or Spiderman: Homecoming won the battle of the trailers. Now sink.
These days, it seems like you can't lurk on Twitter without being accosted by tweets announcing live action adaptations of anime properties. However, it's all fun and games until you discover that a US company is producing the adaptation. In this episode of Outlaw Barz, Death Nope, the ladies discuss what makes a good live action adaptation. And why from Dragonball Evolution to Ghost in The Shell to Death Note, the US may never be able to get it right.

On this week's episode, Ghoul School, Jamie and Chico discuss haunted schools with three films. First up is Guillermo Del Toro's The Devil's Backbone, a spiritual prequel to Pan's Labyrinth that explores a haunted school during the Spanish Civil War. Next, The Awakening offers us another haunted boarding school, this time in England. Finally, we tackle one of the horror greats - Suspiria! One of Dario Argento's best films centers on a diabolical ballet academy which harbors a dark secret. Plus, we announce this month's Patreon giveaway winner. Squad up!
While some wrestlers like Sammi Zayn cannot catch a break, others like The Miz stay winning! The Slambros, Boman12L and Illa YC, return for the 21th episode and are once again joined by Okayplayer.com managing editor, Kevito Clark.
The dirt sheets are filled with injury updates and Billionaires crashing Bentleys this week. The Broken Hardys, while currently enjoying a run as ROH Tag Team Champions, are facing legal troubles from some struggling wrestling promotion. Daniel Bryan hints at a possible return to the ring once his WWE contract is up, while Naomi father’s hints she be in the ring for Mania. Alberto once again has some family trouble, as the love of his life Paige had her phone stolen, hacked and had personal photos and videos leaked to the internet.
With WrestleMania under two weeks away, the WWE is doing there best to sell us on matches we initially didn’t want to see. RAW continues to be serviceable, with Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho still being the parts of the show. Mick Foley’s firing did evoke some emotions out the Slambros, but Stephanie’s poorly motived character looms over too much of RAW. Sami Zayn may be a guy who can take a loss, but how many loses are too many?
Shane McMahan can still jump, but even a coast to coast elbow cannot overshadow how much The Miz stay winning. Two weeks in a row, The Miz aka Mike from the Real World and wife Maryse are the top attractions on Smackdown Live. Between and Talking Smack and Total Bella parody, family Mizanin are solidifying themselves as one of the best acts in all of pro wrestling. Star tuned to Slambros!

The fun doesn't stop there as Shaun Lau of Nototally.com joins us to talk why he won't even watch Dr. Strange or Iron Fist, what is the real difference between race & culture, and why there is no real contest between Jim Lee & Todd McFarlane.

After tackling Gents in Distress, the ladies of Outlaw Barz were in need of a palate cleanser. So we indulged in the anime classic Princess Mononoke.

On this week's episode, Jamie and Chico dive into sex and death in horror movies, specifically looking at how sexually transmitted diseases and infections come into play. Starting with It Follows, we discuss chain emails, social disconnection and HIV/AIDS. Next up, Cronenberg! The master of body horror's first film, Shivers, looks at a parasite that causes residents of a high-rise to turn into sex monsters. Finally, Contracted updated the zombie myth with its own twisted, although problematic, take on sex. Plus, what these films tell us about society's view of women and sex.
We are three week away from WrestleMania and WWE logic is on pull display. While Vince and crew honestly believe they are making some engaging choices to keep people excited for the grandest wrestling show of the year, they are anything but. The Slambros, Boman12L and Illa YC, return for the 20th episode and try to maintain their sanity in the face of baffling WWE logic.
Before then, The Slambros go digging in the Dirt! This week, the dirt sheets are filled with hostage situations and wrestling signings. America’s other large promotions are making moves to talents like the Broken Hardy Family, Alberto El Patron, Bully Ray and others to their bands. No one knows what’s going on with Shaq vs The Big Show for WrestleMania. The first match announced for the show may not happen. Does “New Look” Big Show have Shaq shook or has Diesel not been taking this “Dream Match” seriously?
Fastlane was another middling WWE PPV. While the show did clear the road for the storylines heading toward Mania, it did so in the most boring way possible. WWE Logic was in full effects throughout the show, as wrestlers seeming forgot the rules and mechanics of wrestling matches. RAW and Smackdown Live were also used to set up the most insipid matches while closing the possibility of exciting mix ups. Hey at least Randy Orton vs AJ Styles was dope. Stay tuned to Slambros!

Make Iron Fist Asian Again. Yeah we said it. We've got the one and only Lewis Tan, star of the upcoming Iron Fist series in the spaceship! If you think people were ready to delete Twitter before then you better prepare yourself as we have Zhou Cheng himself breaking down what exactly went down in the audition process, what it's like to star in one of the biggest series of all time, and how does it feel to be a walking thirst trap? Only the important questions on FanBrosShow, For All Nerds as always.
Another one. The spaceship returns with the official breakdown of the triumphs and tragedy of Moonlight and the rest of the Oscar presentation. We also get all the way in to GET OUT, so expect things to get a little spoilery for a second. Plus Benhameen has something to say about a little thing called Race Vs Class. Oh yeah bring the fire men through it's a four alarm blaze in the spaceship tonight.
Spoilerish review for GET OUT from 20:40 to 29:00
You've seen him before in anime. He's tall, dark, handsome...and utterly useless. He can't fight. He's easily captured. Long-term memory is optional. In this episode of Outlaw Barz, Tall, Dark and Ho Hum, we examine the phenomenon of gents in distress. From nobility in Victorian England to inept fighters in the Holy Grail War, there are no shortage of men needing rescuing--or women ready to save their men (and everyone else).

Squad Up! We're closing out February with a nod to Black History Month and Women in Horror Month by looking at some badass Black women in Blaxploitation horror films. We go beyond Blacula and first up is Sugar Hill which uses the power of voodoo and Baron Samedi's zombies to exact revenge on the men who murdered her boyfriend. Next up, Abby is a woman possessed by Eshu, an orisha of chaos in this possession flick that Jamie and Chico find more interesting than The Exorcist. Finally, we dig into the gorgeous Ganja & Hess, a vampire film that might be the genre's finest achievement.
Respect, ladies and gentlemen, this is an easy concept, you better put it on Samoa Joe’s name. The Slambros Boman12l and Illa YC return for the 19th episode and hopefully do not anger “The Destroyer”.
This week we dig in the dirt with heavy hearts, as we report and reflect on the passings of Chavo Guerrero Sr, Nicole Bass, Ivan Koloff and George “The Animal” Steele. Unfortunately the sad news does not end there, as Naomi had to relinquish her Smackdown’s Women’s Title. On the positive side, Finn Balor and Seth Rollins should be cleared to return soon. Perhaps best of all, Lucha Underground is coming to Netflix!
With the help of a temporal device, Boman and YC jump back and forth through time to recap the last two weeks of wrestling. The hellscape that is RAW is even bleaker after Kevin Owens destroyed Friendship. The Slambros, like everyone else, are living in a “post-friendship” world. Kevin Owens turned on and beat down his best friend and “Brother” Chris Jericho and the latter has not been seen since. Sami Zayn needs to learn a thing or two about respect and figure out how much he should put on Samoa Joe’s name. Other acts like Roman Reigns and The New Day are stuck in waiting-for-WrestleMania-holding patterns, while Braun Strowman continues to impress.
On Smackdown Live, futures are looking brighter for an excommunicated bearded cultist heading into Mania; however the blue brand might want to invest into instant replay. The seeds of a mix tag match for Mania and being planted and it clear only half of the parties are invested. Still surprising us, Randy Orton’s slow build to Mania is staying fresh each week, an unusual occurrence for modern WWE storytelling. There’s much more, so stay tuned to Slambros!

When Monstrous Moms Attack! On this episode of The Scream Squad, Jamie and Chico kick off Women in Horror Month by looking at single mothers in horror. Why are single moms painted as villains while single dads get to be heroes? Do single moms "losing it" mentally, reinforce stereotypes about women being overly emotional? How does the idea of childbearing and the subsequent nurturing of a child (or lack thereof) used as a trope throughout horror? We look at THE BABADOOK, THE EXORCIST, FRIDAY THE 13th and more to understand why moms have it harder than anyone else in the genre.

Ladies and gentlemen, we are officially on the road to WrestleMania. In the weeks leading up to the Rumble we had no idea what Vince was planning for Orlando, but these latest rumors make it appear WrestleMania is not for the Fans. The Slambros, Boman12l and Illa YC, return for the 22th/18th episode to try to make sense of these rumors.
Not even a day after the Royal Rumble, rumors of a supposed WrestleMania card set the internet a flutter. Excitement for the big show once again turned to apathy, After a year of signing some of best talent the wrestling world had to offer, rumors report many of top signings in mid card matches or having no current plans at all? Roman Reign is once again getting top billing, with Vince
convinced a “Dream Match” with a Legendary Superstar is all Roman needs to get people behind him. What’s in store for the best friends Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho? Will we finally see a break up or will their friendship last all of eternity? Is WWE crazy enough to go with John Cena vs. Randy Orton at Mania or does the blue brand have something else planned for the WWE title. The Slambros breakdown all these rumors while trying to figure who this rumored card is for if not for the fans.
Not to be forgotten, Elimination Chamber is this week and the Slambros have predictions for the Smackdown Live PPV. Is Cena really walking out the Chamber with the belt or will Randy’s real WrestleMania challenge be reveal on Sunday? Nikkie Bella and Natty having been going at it since Survivor Series. Will the other Bella finally get her revenge on Natty? Yes most likely, but we can still speculate wildly about how it might happen! The Slambros have predictions for all these and more inside, so stay tuned!

Once again it's on as the legend Ta-Nehisi Coates returns to the spaceship for this snowed in episode of FanBrosShow. We know last week was a banger so we had to hit you over the head with another one as Ta-Nehisi breaks down what's it like to go from chilling with Obama to writing the mega hit Black Panther series. Much more of course we could call this one a conversation with Ta-Nehisi but we need Samurai Jesus after catching the Samurai Jack trailer, Tatiana with the Tech, Benhameen on Comics I Copped and a Geekquently Asked Questions segment that asks will Marvel ever catch DC? In animation people don't get it twisted.
My Punisher is Black or he damn well should be, and our special guest Lexi Alexander is here to let you know the real. If you're unfamiliar with Lexi then head over to Twitter and hit that follow on @LexiAlex. You're welcome and now back to the business at hand. Lexi joins us to discuss the state of Hollywood, the world, women in film, how it feels to be thrust headfirst into the geek culture, and so much more on one of our most powerful episodes yet. Please believe it, this is one for the ages.
Honesty hour Outlawz! Take a look at your anime queue. How many series did you start that you know you will never finish? Don't worry. This is a safe space; we won't judge you. There are a myriad of reasons that a series gets abandoned. Sometimes, the main characters are too abrasive or the plot takes too long to progress. Sometimes, a show simply does not live up to the hype. In this episode of Outlaw Barz, The Anime Struggle is Real, we take a look at those series that should have hooked us, but missed the mark.
List of Anime Mentioned in this Episode:
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure
Mob Psycho 100
Kill La Kill
Knights of Sidonia
Sword Art Online S2
Hunter x Hunter
Psycho Pass S2

We give credit when it's due--somehow the WWE has managed to make Royal Rumble 2017 one of the most unpredictable Rumbles in years. Goldberg, Brock Lensar and The Undertaker, besides those big names headlining the entrants, the WWE has an insanely deep roaster of talent right now joining the Rumble like Sami Zayn, Cesaro, Randy Orton and The Miz! Boman12l and Illa YC hold down the 16th episode of the Slambros show for all your Royal Rumble needs!
Punch A Nazi, Save The World? If only it could all be so simple right? The FanBros return to discuss what would Captain America do in this crazed time we are living in, plus what are the implications of The Last Jedi? Is it over for Luke & company? More from the crew of course as we answer the Geekquently Asked Questions, Tech News with Tatiana, and Comics I Copped with Benhameen.
On this week's episode of The Scream Squad, we close our January with a bite, diving into three films that explore characters who believe they are vampires. First up, Nicolas Cage's whacked out performance in Vampire's Kiss dives into mental illness, yuppie culture and male entitlement. Then, George Romero's personal favorite, Martin, explores isolation and the decline of American Industry with a strange boy who believe he is a vampire in a dying Pittsburgh. Finally, a cult classic, Let's Scare Jessica to Death, which takes a look at vampires and mental illness from a female perspective. Plus, if given the chance, would Jamie and Chico become immortal? Listen and find out!
Given enough time, even Michael Cole can be good. 2017 is going to be a strange year, friends. The Slambros Boman12L and Illa YC return for the 16th episode! As always, the dirt sheets are packed with rumors and news from both in and out the ring. We say goodbye to Jimmy Superfly Snuka. After ten years, the WWE has found Kurt Angle and will be inducting him in their Hall of Fame WrestleMania weekend. While the WWE UK Tournament showed us Michael Cole can be good on commentary, Illa YC wants to know “what happens next?” The UK belts is by far one of the best designed belts in years, but will Tyler Bate be defending that title anytime soon?
RAW, like Michael Cole, showed it too can be good if a little effort is made. When WWE is not too busy editing video clips to make it appear people care for the life and times of Roman F. Reigns, they can put on a fairly decent wrestling show. Lucha Underground is on break, but rumors say it could be heading soon to Netflix. Smackdown Live continues its strong run with cage matches and logical reveals. We have recaps and more, so stay tuned.

It's that time of the month, ScreamBros. This week, Jamie and Chico tackle how women come-of-age in horror films (hint: lots of blood) and the connections between puberty and the on-set of special powers. Is female puberty really terrifying or are these films simply showcasing the power women possess because they can create new life?
Plus, we dig into the strange beauty behind Valerie and Her Week of Wonders, a surreal Czech masterpiece with vampires, lusty priests and some not-so-subtle hints of incest. You don't want to miss this episode so plug it up, Carrie and have a listen!
