Episode 171 – The Finished Stories, Both Good and Bad.

Episode 171 - The Finished Stories, Both Good and Bad.

Since our last episode, Cody Rhodes “finished the story” at WrestleMania to become the undisputed WWE Champion, and that’s good. Sadly, also since our last episode, the overlords at MAPPA decided to finish another story by axing a long-awaited movie project after years of nothing, and that’s bad. Things aren’t fun, right now, and with that comes a bit of a lull in everything as this is one of the quickest episodes we’ve done in a very long time – there’s some news about Embracer Group to talk about, some updates on that live-action One Punch Man movie project, some brief chatter about SPY x FAMILY Code: White, and talk of Netflix adding some more MANIME to their lineup next moth. Again, it’s a pretty quick show, but things should be a bit longer next time when we’re at full strength again.

And if you need something longer to listen to, our friends and colleagues over at Dub Talk have their 2024 DUBBIE AWARDS show up, so check it out over on their YouTube channel and in your podcast platform of choice.

P.S. yes this thumbnail gag has been used before. Good memes remain good.
