Hey everyone! We’re very excited to announce that Liam and Eric will be doing a new weekly show called Sunday Morning Hangover Cure! It’s a weekly news round up show where Eric and Liam will look at news stories from the week, some big, some small, some strange, and goof their way through the shitstorm that is the current news cycle. We’ll be dropping the pilot later today, but afterwards expect it to come out every Sunday Morning!
This also won’t effect Media Majors or Big Time Whoopsies, but it does mean Shmanime will be on a monthly-ish schedule. SMHC will also feature a segment where Liam will let everyone know what to expect this week here at MCN, so make sure to check the show out and subscribe!
Today’s episode take’s place in a different universe. A… dark universe, if you will. Liam talks about the failures of Universal’s Dark Universe while Tom looks at one of it’s prominent figures, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and his video game.

On today’s episode, we talk about rip offs, some great, some bad and some downright fucking weird. Tom talks about the Resident Evil rip off that went on to define an entire genre of vide game while Liam takes a look at the wholesome E.T. and the not so wholesome rip offs that went out to replicate it’s success. So of course one of them is German pornography.

The crypt is dark and wet – it surrounds you. You scramble for a light, a match, anything. You hear a noise to your left – a laugh, off in the cavernous distance – and a blue glow illuminates the stone coffins around you. The light calls you towards it, and as you near, you can hear the sounds of two people, talking about a movie – a Stephen King movie. Gripped by a sudden horror, you realize where you are – this is the podcast crypt: an echoing hell from which you may never escape. With no other choice left to you, you sit, and listen.
This episode is about the movie Carrie (1976). It begins and ends with the End Theme from the film Creepshow. It also features the song “Theme From Carrie” by Pino Donaggio. Welcome to the crypt, listener.

In the second installment of Big Time Whoopsie’s spooky stories, Eric takes on the Comics Code Authority, the voluntary censorship the comics industry undertook in the 50s that led to a lot of weird, bland comics.
