After seeing Civil War, Joey looks at a TV episode similar to the film that doesn’t get nearly enough attention.
“‘More of the same’, though I’d still say it was better overall than the previous Avengers movie and trumps it on most levels.”
“When people complain about adaptations of a work, it’s because they like the things that end up getting lost in translation, and the classic superhero/supervillain dynamic is one of those things that’s gotten lost in a lot of these Marvel flicks.”
Ursa’s not the keenest on Thor: The Dark World, so she’s getting it out of the way before getting onto the good Avenger movies of MCU Phase 2. We talk Loki, being good in bits and pieces, and why cruelty to the shell-shocked isn’t funny.

“This time around, Stan looks at the TV movie that reunited the stars of a classic ‘70s action series, The Incredible Hulk Returns. And since the notion of Bill Bixby turning into a bodybuilder covered in green body paint isn’t ridiculous enough, they added the Norse god of thunder! Yes, Marvel’s own Thor makes a special appearance here, along with his life partner Donald Blake, and since Kenneth Branagh’s Thor comes out this summer, what better time to look at Thor’s only other live-action appearance?”
