We're on a roll at the moment. This week sees another standout edition of The Enthusiast! This week we start out with a trailerpalooza, Kieran gets a bit existential when talking about his music pick and Shaun get the shock of his life towards the end of the show. This is another great place to start if you're looking for a jumping point with The Enthusiast!
This is possibly our favourite show that we've done so far. It's a great jumping on point for people who haven't really listened. Kieran talks about pop music, Shaun talks about Star Wars, Archer references are made, it's everything that makes The Enthusiast, The Enthusiast.
We didn't plan it, but Episode 13 ended up being a bit of a spooky one. We talk at length about Luigi's Mansion 2, The Demon of Death Valley: The Undertaker and another famous dude to conquer death, Jesus Christ. Shaun would like it known that The Enthusiast! is an entertainment podcast and does not seek to offend anyone. Kieran doesn't particularly care.
We were lucky enough to catch Iron Man 3's midnight show, and as soon at was over we sat down with our good friend Haroon Mushtaq of Travelling Man comics to have a little chat about it. As always, we do ramble off topic a fair bit and we end up talking about the film in comparison to the previous Iron Man films, the other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the work of 'Visionary Director' Zack Snyder.
This podcast is SPOILER FREE. You can listen to this with confidence that you will not have Iron Man 3 spoiled. You may have the Avengers spoiled for you, but c'mon, that film made $1,000,000,000.
Okay, now I know the past few weeks each week has started with "We're back on a regular schedule this week" but I swear, we're back on a regular schedule this week. We've got a great, high energy show and surprisingly we're talking about upcoming superhero movies at length, as well as the state of modern horror and television about television.
We’re back on track, no more hatred, much less wrestling, it’s vintage Enthusiast this week. We’re feeling very amicable this week as Kieran and Shaun ending up picking the same thing for two segments. Kieran talks about his unusually named cat, Shaun talks about and we also manage to sidestep a Scooby Doo tangent that could have taken over the whole show.
It's the most wonderful time of the year, WrestleMania season! This show, Kieran is joined by a very special co-host, as 'The Rated R Podcast Star' himself, Matthew 'Gibbo' Gibbon steps in so that Shaun doesn't have to pretend to be interested for a whole hour. We go through the whole card, from pre-show to main event, and talk about our favourite WrestleMania entrances, the legacy of the Streak, and the greatest potential wrestling stable that could ever happen.
We've got a super fun episode this week. Kieran and Shaun have their first major disagreement over the 1998 American 'Godzilla' Feats of Strength are performed by a man famous for his ability to pop his pecs in time with Black Sabbath songs, and the boys spend far longer talking about the redeeming qualities of the Sonic The Hedgehog franchise than they ever expected.
A bit of an odd one this week, but it turned out okay in a while. Kieran gets so enthused, he starts forgetting segments and adding in music cues where he's not supposed to and Shaun even manages to trump him in obscure Simpsons references. Besides that, this week we're talking about Veronica Mars and her terrifying Kickstarter, the appeal of Thor, God of Thunder and the prevalence of THAT ONE GUY on every shooter cover ever.
And we're back.
After an utterly disastrous show last week that we ended up completely writing off and scrapping, we're back on the ball with a fantastic episode. This week we're talking about 21st century feminism, the prolific nature of Steven Soderbergh and the surprising fervour of Devil May Cry fans.
We're really chuffed with this episode. It's a packed show this week, but we still somehow manage to make it around an hour. This week The Enthusiast gets Oscar fever as a tired Shaun gives his thoughts on the ceremony, and Kieran has actually seen a film that's currently in cinemas. Besides that, we're discussing the future of video gaming, the greatest adaptation of Spider-Man and where Shaun gets his music taste from.
Well, you can't win them all. After a good few weeks of shows going without hitch, all of those hitches showed up at once to make for a very difficult show. Ever the professionals though, we persevered, and Shaun managed to save us with some very crafty edits. This week we're talking about the 3DS (again), Archer (again) and Batman (again), but it's well worth a listen.
Welcome to the first episode of The Enthusiast. After a calamitous prototype episode last week, we got one that we’re happy enough to upload. This week, we’re feeling positive about Star Wars, Kevin Bacon and Arnie. We also do some terrible Macho Man impressions
