Rumor round the campfire is, AJ’s a snob. At least that’s what Paul and guest Gregory Sahadachny of The Debatable Podcast would have you believe. Before they get around to calling him on it, there’s talk of the Office finale, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. trailer, and how best to get into comics, among other things. And then, yeah, there’s talk of snobbery. Does AJ punch them out? Tune in and discover for yourself!
Next: live from the 2013 Alabama Phoenix Fest! Hopefully!
Last week, Paul and I reached the halfway mark of our countdown of the Top 100 Characters in Modern Pop Culture. Here are excerpts of our thoughts on our picks for #s 60-51, but be sure to listen to the show for our full rundowns.
PAUL: Vincent (Beauty and the Beast)
Speaking with a gruff but gentle whisper and all but hidden beneath an impressive leonine Rick Baker prosthesis (which didn’t, but absolutely should have, won awards), Perlman was the very definition of Romantic-with-a-capital-R misunderstood emo monster heroes for a generation.
AJ: John Locke (Lost)
His regained ability to walk gave him a new lease on life, and he looked at the island as a beautiful, supernatural force. He refused to leave, and tried to get the rest of the group to stay as well, believing them to be there for a greater purpose. The constant push-and-pull between Jack, the man of science, and Locke, the man of faith, became the series’ core thematic conflict.
