Reviews For Danger Room: The X-men Comics Commentary Podcast

5/5

These guys are awesome. I keep coming back to this podcast and it’s consistently well done and enjoyable! Thank you Adam and Jeremy!
It's not like the world is crawling with people that just read the first appearance of Dazzler and are dying to talk about it so it's nice to know you can always go see what these two had to say about it or ANYTHING else that happened in X-Men thru the 60's, 70's, and most of the 80's (so far). Their chemistry is great and their commitment is something to be applauded. Thank you gentlemen!
Even in the first episode I knew this was something special. Adam and Jeremy keep my very young brother and I laughing without being vulgar like many other comic podcasts. With love for the characters and random pop culture tangents, they guide you through every X-Men comic or character appearance, giving you classic jokes about deadly eyes, white wolves, Skur’kll the Alien monster knockoff, high school bands and many more. Check it out and I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Adam and Jeremy do a hilarious job of reading through the X-Men while adding their own commentary and occasionally getting sidetracked by G.I. Joe and Star Wars. If you’ve ever wanted to read through all the X-Men comics, this is the podcast for you.
As far as the “two white cishet male schmucks make a comics podcast” goes, this is the cream of the crop. These guys clearly know what they’re doing
On your last podcast you had mentioned a series staring Havok who was dating or married to Madeline Pryor in an alternate dimension. You guys called it x-man. As I was screaming “mutant x” , it was then that I knew that I was a true comic nerd who may have had too much free time in his early teens. Anyway, Love your podcast. By the way I like the format of you mainly covering uncanny X-men with mention of what is going on in the other x-books that month. This will be useful when you get to the 90s. Keep up the good work
I’ve always loved the movies and the animated series, but I am just now reading the comics. The Marvel Universe is really daunting as a beginner and I’m the kind of person that has to start everything at the beginning. Thanks to these guys I can listen to all the early stuff and not be completely mind boggled by retcons and time travel. This show is amazing and super funny. And the website is great, love the pictures. Keep up the awesomeness.
It’s one of my favorite parts of the podcast. I love hearing about the whole crazy continuity of the X-universe.
At least I hope the hosts are canucks. Severe problem if they aren’t. I don’t even like the X-Men, but was looking for a issue by issue recap of something in the Marvel world. I still hate the X-Men, but I enjoy this show.

Great way to catch up on the history of the X-Men.
Although I've never been a regular comics reader, I have long been a fan of serial fiction, usually in the form of multi-novel sagas like The Lord Of The Rings, The Dark Tower, The Wheel Of Time, Dune, etc. I started listening based on a friend's recommendation, but after a few episodes, I realized that comics are the ultimate serial fiction, and I have since developed a real love for the Xmen franchise as a result of this podcast. It doesn’t hurt that Adam and Jeremy are a highly entertaining duo. Keep up the great work guys!

Can't stop listening, keep it up.
This podcast is a must for any X fan. A panel by panel commentary where Adam and Jeremy take you on a journey of your favorite X-Men books.
Found it last summer and enjoy listening at the gym or when walking the dogs. It has made me go buy the Omnibus's and reread. Quick question though I'm on episode 95 and am wondering what episode it takes the two of them to realize banshee is Irish and not Scottish. Keep up the good work
And what they do is....entertaining? It is entertaining. Especially if you are an X Men comics fan, I'm just coming up short on a witty pun. You'll definitely love it more than any stories focus on Dazzler that's for sure!!!
Adam and Jeremy have stumbled on a very entertaining formula for their X-Men comics commentary podcast. They both have a goofy and endearing delivery for their read-throughs each week which I appreciate. Unlike other comics podcasts, they don't take themselves too seriously while talking about what, in truth, is a very silly subject. Keep up the good work guys!
Its great! Love the voices!
Spoiler alerts galore. This X-men podcast hosted by Adam and Jeremy, two lovers of the X-men and fans alike, have done an amazing job of creating a podcast that goes issues by issue: episode by episode. This podcast is wonderful for all and they'll even mention your name on the podcast. Carry on and can't wait till you get to the 300's.
I like this show and hearing the opinions of these guys. It kind of gets annoying when they see a word they don't know but bother to look it up before hand. Just prepare and look it up ahead of time. Also, when they imply that John Bolton is a bad artist because they have never heard of him or talk about Dave Cockrum, considered a fantastic marvel artist by most, as "not very good" it gets annoying to people who have been into comics longer than them. Opinion is opinion but come on. Over all definitely worth a listen.
A great accompaniment for anyone making their way through the original X-Men series. Witty commentary that’s approachable to longtime fans and newcomers alike. By far the best comics commentary podcast available. Highly recommended!
Adam and Jeremy have great chemistry, and they’re a lot of fun to listen to. I recently went back and have been listening from the beginning (mostly) in order. Sometimes pronunciations have me yelling at my iPod, but that’s half of the fun! My only real problem with the podcast is the lack of love for Dazzler. Dazzler is everything, and if you don’t agree, then you have no taste. :-D
I love this podcast! It is hilarious, entertaining, and, on occasion, educational! I recommend this to everyone with ears and a love for the X-Men.
Awesome!
I love the danger room podcast! Adam and Jeremy are fun to listen to and their Marvel Girl voices are reminiscent of Marge Simpson and Pinocchio from Shrek! Hilarious!!!!
Adam and Jeremy provide a funny and entertaining retelling of the X-Men. It's not quite as good as Seamus and Candace on the podcast X-Aspirations, but still worth a listen!
I started my own personal quest to read x-men chronologically. Made it to issue 200 then found this show. I have listened from the beginning reliving those terrible first issues. They are like the friends you had at school arguing over the coolest characters every week. Keep up the good work
This is one of the consistently best podcasts out there. Adam and Jeremy have great chemistry and put on a show that is funny, informative and nostalgic. Each show begins with a page by page recap of an x-men comic. When the X-men started to branch out into the marvel universe, the hosts provide a shorter synopsis of the X-mens presence. One suggestion. Around issue 200, The x-men universe is going to start getting really complex (New Mutants, X-Factor, X-Men and Limited Series). Many episodes ago Adam asked for suggestions on how to handle this. How about franchising? Perhaps a complementary podcast by some other guys that could tackle X-factor or New Mutants? Cross overs would be awesome.
A+++ Look futzers It's the best comic book commentary podcast in the world! Extremely entertaining and informative, these guys are the best part about going into work.
Having been an X-Men fan for many years, it's great to re-live the reading memories through Adam and Jeremy. This is a fun listen as they make their way through the rough (and very dated) 1960s issues into the high point of the X-Men in the Claremont years. Worth a listen for any true X-Men fan.
This podcast captures all the fun memories of what it was to be an X-Men fan in the Claremont era (and all the way back to issue 1 with Stan and Jack, too). I'm looking forward to even more insanity when they finally make it to the chromium age of the 1990's.
Adam and Jeremy are great - the podcast is highly entertaining and great to listen to, without it my work days would be a lot more boring and painful. I started reading the collected editions of X-Men a couple months back, and this podcast is great for both commentary on the issues that I have read, as well as filling in the gaps where issues are missing in between the collections that I have. I would recommend this podcast to anyone, X-Men fan or not - these guys are hilarious and knowledgable, so go subscribe and listen!
If you are an old fan, or new to the X-Men, this podcast will bring you more up-to-date then re-reading your backlog. Adam and Jeremy bring insight, outside sources, and HILARIOUSLY SPOT ON VOICE ACTING! From the hokey '60s to the Claremont era and beyond, a great audio companion to a visual medium. Ideal for kids, futzers, and Orphans with eyes, DEADLY, DEADLY EYES!!!!
Adam and Jeremy share their love of X-Men comics by dedicating each episode to one issue. The commentary is both insightful and humorous. A good source for those of us wanting to read all of those back issues but haven't quite found the time.
I've been looking for a good issue-by-issue X-Men commentary. These guys are really funny.
These guys know what they are talking about and have fun talking about it. Heck, even when they don;t know what they are talking about they have fun talking about it. I’ve been listening through their “back issues” and it has been fun discovering the X-Men history along with them. If you are interested in the comic book backgrounds and origins and story lines of the X-Men, this issue by issue commentary is the podcast for you.
I found this by chance and it's awesome. Have been marathoning episodes for about a week now and it hasn't gotten old. Very funny and you don't have to already be an X-Men fan to enjoy this.
I'm at episode 53 right now and can't wait to catch up! I wrote a previous comment not too long ago, but I dropped the f bomb a could times so if you want me to rate again, please drop the f bomb in a episode Hugh Jackman in first class. Zit!
Just found this podcast a few weeks ago. Up to episode 25, love it. Very entertaining and fun to listen to. Keep up the good work.
I recently assigned myself the task of reading every X-Men comic ever. I found this pod after starting my reading and it is great to hear the guys reactions to ridiculous first issues that I am also trudging through currently. I look forward to coming back to these pods as I progress through the series. I like that they go through each issue more methodically and page by page, unlike some other similar podcasts that you can find on the X-Men.
Still Trying to catch up but enjoing every bit of it while driving. Thank you for making my trip to work less boring.
I have had a love of the X-Men since the early ’80’s. Adam and Jeremy starts at issue 1 and discuss the issues of awesomeness and the flaws of the X-Men. From writing and art. Chuckles all around.
Just passed the commentary for Issue #19, slowly but surely making my way through them all. This podcast has definitely caused me to go back and read stories I've never read before or considred to Silver Age-y to give a second look to. Honestly, great job, you guys, hopefully, you can keep it up as I continue through these apparently very old episodes. Or else.
This is a fantastic podcast! Loving it! I want to see or do an Avengers/Spider-man or do the Ultimates in this same format.
I love this podcast. These guys do a great job talking through the comics. Funny and interesting! Keep it up!
Not a hoax! Not a dream! In this review an x-man dies!! Or not. The danger room podcast is a masterfully guided trip down the road of classic x-men comics (not to mention the less than masterfully written "X-Men Classic" line). The dastardly duo of Adam and Jeremy cleverly and lovingly poke fun at the comic series we all love, sometimes despite itself. Beware, laughter within. Until Adam and Jeremy quit the podcast to open a bar that serves only Fastball Specials and variations thereupon, make mine Danger Room!
OMG Awesome!
Exactly the type of podcast I was looking for. Thoroughly entertaining and fun to listen to.
Omg awesome!!!!!
I don't hate this podcasts but I feel that if you're going to do an X-Men comics podcast you should be familiar with the X-Men. Adam and Jeremy often catch themselves wondering who certain characters are or where their first appearances were. I'm talking common comics book facts that EVERYONE knows. I am amazed at how much they get wrong. If they don't know these things its fine but it makes for an often aggravating podcast as I find myself yelling at my iPod every time they get something wrong. They seem like perfectly nice guys... But not real X-men fans. While I like revisiting old issues, I wish the hosts were a bit more clued in. Just my opinion.
