FlameOn_TaleEnder_Ep25_thumbnailThe boys are back after a holiday hiatus with another explosive episode of Flame ON! The comic book debates raged as hard as their nipples after a night with Iceman. Listen up as Bryan the Bear, Jarrod the Alternaguy, Eric the Power Daddy, Oral the Bitch, and The Question of Questionable Tastes in Spandex have a drag out, no holds barred nerdfest about all things gay and geeky.

Movies

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was about as long and stretched out as we expected it to be, but opinions were split on whether that was good or bad. Also, how many times does Q fluster the term “FPS”? The boys also discuss the Justice League movie woes, of which there are many, unfortunately.

TV

Bryan, Oral, and Eric rev their engines for the latest Ru Paul’s Drag Race season as they cheer on local Florida gals Roxxxy Andrews and Detox. If you were wondering where Oral learned to throw shade, then look no further. More bad news for DC as the announcement hit of Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice being CANCELLED! Keep listening for talk about The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, and The Following.

Video Games

Turns out that even long ago, in a galaxy far, far away, gays are still given the “separate but equal” treatment! Gay relationships are now a part of Bioware’s Star Wars: The Old Republic MMORPG, but only on one planet! Also hear the reactions to the PS4 and first impressions of the WiiU.

Comics

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a homophobe! DC hiring Orson Scott Card to write Superman hits a personal note for the podcasters and a heated debate comes out of it. To balance it out, just wait until you hear who is getting married! Hint: It’s BATWOMAN!

Also hear our indie reviews of Locke and Key: Omega and Brian Wood’s Star Wars. Marvel NOW! continues to wow the boys with the likes of All-New X-Men, Avengers, Thor, Cable and Young Avengers, while the not-so-New 52 shakes it up with some huge Green Lantern news as well as the controversial last issue of Batman #17.

You’ll want to strap in for this one, ladies and gentlemen, because passions are high and opinions are flying like Oral’s pants in a brothel. If you like the show, reach out to us on Twitter @FlameOnPodcast, Facebook, or questions@flameonshow.com.

  • For me, OSC is not a question of perspective or freedom of speech. Card sits on the board of a hate group. That’s the beginning and the end of things. Card is free to blog, write, and publish any crap he wishes. But reputable publishers, particularly the big-2 comics publishers shouldn’t get in bed with people who sit on the board of hate groups. It’s as simple as that.
