Wrestling: Ep 18 - Global War Games Series

I always get my man. ACH and Walter have supposedly signed with WWE. What does this mean (0-11)?

Back in the early 90's of the WWF, highly gimmick characters were a-plenty. This episode we spotlight the evil Canadian wrestler The Mountie (11-19).

In the indie scene JD breaks down some event highlights of various promotions (19-49).
A discussion starts with GWF and WrestlingKult French wrestler Senza Volto. Move into discussing the fallout from the She-1 over in Pro Wrestling Eve (23-28). Then, a little update over a match from NOAH's Global League and wXw's event Broken Rules feature PCO v Dragunov in the main event (29-43). The indie scene is concluded reviewing RPW's Uprising event Starr v Ishii (43-49).

 

Into Tier 2, JD has some thoughts over NJPW's tag league as well as some decent to good matches featured during ROH's Global Wars tour (49-56).

WWE had a big weekend with NXT War Games and Survivor Series. Did they deliver or was it simply dull (56-1:23)?

It wouldn't be RLR without finishing out the cast by looking back. WCW Thunder Eps 12 - 26 Mar. 1998 (1:23-end). Podcast wrestler rankings to finish out and a brief talk over Progress Ch 78.

Anime: Ep 37 - The Vision of Escaflowne

Your heart is a flutter. Enter the contest as we celebrate over 100 episodes and coming up on two years (0-9). Tori has a movie update with brief discussion over Barefoot Gen (9-24).
In a quest to keep up with all those shounen anime, JD finally caught up and finished Fairy Tail 2014 and boy do we have some things to say over that (24-47).
In our topic of the episode, we break down what and how important music in anime is (47-1:18).
Our retro anime up for review is the 90's high fantasy by the name of The Vision of Escaflowne. Starring a young girl summoned to a mech battle stricken world, do the hosts find Hitomi and the show worth checking out today (1:18-end)?

Wrestling: Ep 17 - Ultima Lucha Survival of the Struggle

Hey yo. It's survey time. Let's compare WWE in Saudi Arabia to NJPW in North Korea back in the early 90's (0-16).

One of the biggest names of the 90's was Scott Hall. Be it when he was Razor Ramon in ladder matches or part of the original nWo, the bad guy is worth going back to spotlight (16-36). Jay from the Smack It Down podcast joins JD to discuss in this fantastic episode.

The wide world of wrestling on the indies is ramping up to another big outing. We discuss a whole lot from A-Kid in White Wolf Wrestling out of Spain, wXw Road to Broken Rules, Stardom True Fight 2018, Bar Wrestling 21, Lucha Underground season 4 finale Ultima Lucha Cuatro, and Progress Ch 77 (36-1:26).

From there, Robert from the "Loud Mouth Wrestling" podcast joins JD to discuss the on-goings in AJPW (1:26-1:37) and the start of NOAH wrestling's Global League to round up the indie scene (1:37-1:56).

Into Tier 2, Robert from LM Wrestling and JD discuss ROH Survival of the Fittest and how it plays into the state of ROH (1:56-2:25).

Jay returns to join JD for review and fallout from NJPW Power Struggle, brief thoughts on-look into tag league and how it all plays into Wrestle Kingdom (2:25-2:47).

WWE has gone insane. NKT UK, NXT into War Games, and WWE booking looking back and into Survivor Series. Is there a method to the madness (2:47-3:22)?

It wouldn't be RLR without finishing out the cast by looking back. WCW Thunder Eps 11 - 19 Mar. 1998 (3:22-end). Podcast wrestler rankings to finish out.

Retrocast: Ep 32 - The Strange and the Weird

Such an oddball. Yep, we got our intro including Kevin talking about his experience with Psychonauts (0-14). Lots of industry news occurred in between casts and not the good kind with the likes of Activision and Bungie being more greedy than ever (14-43). 

November is an odd month and to go along with it being in between scary and festive, the theme chose for this cast of games that come across as strange or weird. Join us as we wander through some strange art, weird characters, and downright odd games (43-end).

Oddworld Abe's Oddysee (PS)  
Bonk's Adventure (TG16)  
Kabuki Quantum Fighter (NES)  
Maui Mallard in Cold Shadow (SNES)
Grim Fandango (PC)

Anime: Ep 36 - Gatchaman

Fire the bird missile! This episode begins with talk over season 2 of Netflix's Castlevania. Is the show worth checking out? Tori brings us up to speed over the next couple anime films he watched such as the Space Cobra movie (0-23).
We run over an updated moving bar which is some new shows we could possibly review that are now over 15 years old [Fall 2003] (23-35).
Have you ever wanted to watch older anime, but don't know where to start? Each host picked 3 retro shows to recommend for new anime fans (35-1:13).
Our retro anime up for review is the 1970's superhero team hit called Gatchaman. The show entailed many spinoffs, OVAs, and movies, but was the original show any good and does it hold up (1:13-end)?

Wrestling: Ep 16 - Global Wars Evolution

Don't throw chairs into the ring! As a fun start off, we do a start your own wrestling promotion fantasy draft with 10 picks each among five people (0-29).

Remember how crazy ECW was? Well, our spotlight covers possibly the most popular tag team to come from the extreme promotion in the Public Enemy (29-48).

Tier 3 indie had a little variety lately. Tessa Blanchard and Mercedes Martinez had a 75 min ironwoman match out of Rise wrestling, and we also cover events from RPW's Global Wars UK event. We finish up the indies by catching up with events from Lucha Underground season 4 heading into the finale at Ultima Lucha Cuatro (48-1:08).

In tier 2, NJPW has had their Road to Power Struggle tour ongoing with the Jr Tag Tournament. We cover news and the teams leading into the Power Struggle event (1:08-1:20).

WWE had their historic first ever historical all women's ppv in Evolution. Was it good and who came out on top (1:20-1:57)?

As we do, we close out the show with reviewing WCW and reached another ppv event in Uncensored 1998 with the main event Savage v Hogan in a steel cage (1:57-end). Podcast wrestler rankings at the end (2:26-end).
