“Chewie… we’re home”
And since we know your RSS feed has been feeling a little dusty, we don’t waste a lot of time with the formalities in our latest episode of Remember When. We’ve barely said our Hello’s when we jump into the show content.
Because BOY OH BOY, we have a lot of ground to cover!
Age of Ultron is our first target. It’s been hyped, marketed, teased, and long-sought-after. But after the extensive wait, this movie just can’t meet any expectations. We’re prepared to tear it a new one. We spoil the heck out of this movie.
Then there’s the new season of Game of Snore… er, Game of Thrones. Jay came close to tapping out near the end, and Parris has some pointed thoughts on why this season feels so “off”. And yeah, we tell you all the big story moments here, too.
The fun isn’t limited to those two items, either. At the end of the show, we’re mixing in talk of the new Episode VII teaser, our Ant-Man anticipation (or rather, extreme lack thereof), Netflix’s Daredevil show, the third season of Orange is the New Black, the final season of Mad Men, the premiere season of Better Call Saul…
It’s a show filled with five months of conversation, all wrapped up in an hour. And we jump around a lot with tons of spoilers, but rest assured, we cover a lot of ground.
Fans of our original podcast, UncleGamer Radio…. you might want to pay close attention to those final few minutes of this episode.

Game of Strings
Good podcasters always pay their debts. For Remember When, that means we’re finally giving you what you’ve all been waiting for!
We’re heading to Westeros and taking a deep dive into Game of Thrones.
After several years of Parris’ urging to get on the bandwagon, Jay has finally (FINALLY) caught up on the show. He’s so eager to talk about it that we barely have time to do a show intro! We just jump right in.
We won’t lie: It’s an intense talk with some unexpected moments.
It took Jay a few attempts to get into the show, and you probably won’t be able to guess why. We rave about some of the best performances in the show, and it’s not just dominated by Peter Dinklage. And we talk about THAT MOMENT in Season 3, with The Wedding.
We don’t just cover individual episodes either. We talk about our crazy theories on how the show will end, and what’s in store for some of our favorite characters.
And the epic conversations don’t just stop at Dem Thrones! These past few weeks have given us a bevy of news from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’ve seen some of the first meaty scenes from Age of Ultron, we’ve seen the full roster of movies that’s coming for Phase 3…. and boy, are we giddy.
Cap 3. Civil War. The Infinity War. It’s just…. so beautiful. And we talk about them all, and how this giant story is about to get woven together.
There’s a lot of goodness in the show, if we say so ourselves!

0:00 to 38:48 – Game of Thrones, all four seasons spoiled
38:48 to end – Marvel Cinematic Universe, Phase 3, the Age of Ultron trailer, why DC must be crying in a corner, and the Great Geek Cinema Year That Will Be 2015.
Days of Matrix Past
The bi-annual release of Remember When is finally available!
We don’t waste any time getting started with this show, and jump right into the good stuff! Our Robocop discussion is ALMOST IMMEDIATELY shanghai’ed by a tangent into the first teaser for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and our discussion on it.
Then we jump back and look at House of Cards (with a TON of spoilers). How did the end of Season 2 fare, and what are our fears moving into a third season after this most recent story arc? We also play the “I need an adult” card as we chat about the intense, shocking events in Chapter 24.
Jay surprises everyone with a chat about the first two seasons of Archer, and some Game of Thrones talk. YES WE TALK GAME OF THRONES (but not as deep as you might like)
Then we talk about the Marvel multi-verse, and our thoughts on the upcoming launches of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, as well as conversations about the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer. With three separate studios vying for their own claim in the Marvel world, can reboots be far behind?
Speaking of reboots, how about that news on the possible Matrix reboot? Is it time for us to look at that as a viable option?
And Jay, bless his heart, confesses that Parris was right about one of the recent Great Movies Jay Has Never Seen.
There are tangents, tangents galore here. How many tangents? There are so many that we can’t even time stamp things. It’s ridiculous. Bring a neck brace before listening to the show!

The Last Bluth of Krypton
And now the story of omnipotent aliens who lost everything, and the two podcast hosts who had no choice but to watch their respective movies and see if they could keep it together.
We start off the show with a look back at Star Trek Into Darkness. While our anticipation for the movie ran high, the final product proved to have a few holes. Our spoiler-filled chat on the Final Frontier talks about the gross underutilization of Benedict Cumberbatch, the way they’ve mangled the story of some of the characters, where the story hit its all time high, and just a few of the ways the movie pays tribute to the original timeline.
Then we jump in, feet first, to our Man of Steel discussion. Remember back in Episode 8 when we talked about what it would take for Superman to be relevant and interesting to current movie audiences? It seems like Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan might have been listening in to our show that week, because Man of Steel feels like a line-by-line interpretation of so many of our ideas. We gush about the updated approach to the movie, lament the property losses, and talk about how much we love Man of Steel almost in spite of itself.
Jay’s been binge watching an old TV show, and we look back at the Bluth empire and its mighty fall.
Then it’s a quick sideways tangent into the current landscape of TV, with brief chats on Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Orphan Black, Breaking Bad, and the finale of The Office.
There’s lots of stuff in this episode, all crammed into a 75 minute window!
