For the most part, the episodes on movies and TV are usually Very good.
Although if you NOT a fan of hearing the word "LIKE" for every other word, avoid Techfetish at all costs. It'll drive you insane.
I Like can't like stand it like when like people can't like speak without like using like the same word like all the time like". YES it is that bad some times.
Also the guys ON Digigods are big fans of indie movies and not so much the big blockbuster special effects movies. So it is like listening to real cridics (which they are). They are good but tend to hate any blockbuster that doesn't have good character development , great acting, etc.
Keepin' it reel and Channel surfing are by far my favorites. I also like Digigods a lot but have to listen to them hate on MOST of the new releases that I LIKE. And talk extensively about 50 year old movies that I have no interest in.
I've been listening to Channel Surfing since episode 1, and I've come to realize in retrospect how big of an impact it's had on my life. It introduced me to most of my (now) favorite shows and opened up an entire type of serious television criticism I didn't know existed, spanning many other great websites and critics. I'm not exaggerating when I say the snowball of film and tv this podcast started rolling for me played a huge part in my decision to try to become a filmmaker myself. Oh...and the other podcasts are good too.
Love the comics smash podcast. Don't really listen to the others and wish IGN would separate them instead if aggregating all of them together.
Anyway, Rich and the Dans do a great job with going through comic news, reviews, and comic book movies. The mailbag editions are usually hilarious, especially when you hear Dan ring the bell and update us with (fake) Zack Effron news. Pure comedy gold.
Keep up the great work guys!
IGN Comic Smash is the most entertaining podcast from IGN. They should have their own IGN Category. Keeping it Reel is a great podcast as well but the guys from Comic Smash put that podcast at the top for me.
I love the comics, tech, show,... really I love all these podcast. Great people, incredibly knowledgable, and really entertaining. My only complaint is that they do not do enough of these shows as I would like. But really, that is a good thing.
These guys have some really great podcasts. It's a shame however that the only on that comes out with regularity is the digigods. Those dudes blow! they are the only reason that this isn't a 5 star podcast in my eyes! All the other ones are very witty and insightful. I look forward to them everytime they release one.
If you are a comic book fan and you are not listening to this podcast you are missing out. Reviews, previews, and insight into the newest comics makes Comics Smash one of the most timely and fun places to go for current comic books.
The good ones are great, the bad ones are really bad. I really enjoy all the IGN podcasts, but digigods is pretty stupid--it feels so detatched from everything else and the two guys aren't fun to listen to. The Stars podcast is horrible though, Phil Perrello sounds like a dweeby tool.
I love how they've combined all the game podcasts and entertainment podcasts in to two subscriptions. It's not that much extra work to subsribe to each of them separately but this convenience is much appreciated.
I'm a fan of IGN and the podcasts tend to be pretty darn funny. The hosts all have good relationships with each other and keep things moving while covering TV, movies, tech, and more. I'm glad these are all gathered together in one stream. Thanks, guys!
