THIS WEEK: In their continuing coverage of Kamen Rider V3, the Historians move on from the unfortunate Baron Tusk to the nonentity that is Archbishop Wing. This is, sadly, an improvement. Alexa would be rather eating some potate; we cover not one but two of the most iconic 70s Showa rider shitposts; the show starts to get really self-referential; Van desperately tries to cling to reality; Alexa’s references get goofier by the second; and we all have a soft spot for a certain man in gauze (a man in gauze!). Happy Hanukkah, everyone!
THIS WEEK: Van and Sven are left to their own devices to examine the unfortunate Baron Tusk and all the unpleasantness within his arc. In this episode, Sven’s preferences are outted; props are broken; patience is tested; Sven’s vision problems count as weighted armor; the two northern-living members of the podcast get real picky about snow effects; Van takes a trip down Rider’s shared timeline; a lot of really great questions are asked; and we are very tired of saying the word “doovoo”.
THIS WEEK: The gang reconvenes with Kamen Rider V3. A number of familiar faces return to grace us with their presence and we close out Doktor G’s tenure on the show. In addition to that, a joke dies live on podcast; the show tries (poorly) to introduce new merch; Van gives us a helpful(?) driving PSA; Sven forgets what object permanence means; petty office politics return; V3’s bodycount gets downright ludicrous; and you really don’t wanna know what Doktor G’s opinions of Tom Clancy are.
THIS WEEK: Things get goofy with Kamen Rider V3, and we get to see the first Destron commander, Doktor G, in full swing. Sven gets hypertechnical about sci-fi tech; V3 goes for a refreshing dip in the ocean (again, and again, and again); we debate cartoon physics and Destron’s in-house antidotes; we take an awkward visit to Rider Scout Boot Camp; we take an even more uncomfortable detour regarding villains with mental disabilities; and while none of Destron’s plots make a lick of scientific sense… well, the theory is sound.
THIS WEEK: Doktor John Darksou– uh, Doktor G graces fellow non-doctors, Sven Michel and Van Ong, with his presence in Kamen Rider V3. In addition to that, we debate the possible intervention of moral guardians; the convoluted timeline that is Toei’s shared properties; maybe our real weaknesses were the friends we made along the way; Sven gets mad about Battlemech loadouts; overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer, and remember: the following podcast you are about to listen to is canon.
The puzzle channel Van mentions is FLEB on youtube. Check out the Xbox Puzzle video when you have a minute, it’s pretty cool stuff.
THIS WEEK: The crew continue on Kamen Rider V3‘s nonsense road, as they enjoy the twists the show puts on the formula… while lampooning the skeezy romantic tropes on display. In addition, Little Mac dies valiantly; Alexa talks kids’ fashion; Red Lamp Power is the Kaio-Ken; we have perhaps confused certain algorithms due to one too many wrestling jokes; we are deeply concerned about the ongoing actions of the Rider Scouts, and you should BUY SUZUKI BIKES.
THIS WEEK: “Henshin… V3!” With the original series behind them, the crew looks forward to tackling the house built upon Showa Rider’s foundations in Kamen Rider V3! In addition, Great Leader’s death stuck for all of five minutes; Sven is stupefied by Hongo’s fashion choices; we gush over every single monster suit for once; the real Tachibana would never pass up an opportunity to die; we have to explain an old joke; safety has never been LESS guaranteed, and since the day Machinegun-Snake manifested in our houses, we have not known peace.
