CP Episode 44: The Family Friendly Experimentation


After a few weeks off John and I were able to get together with Rick and talk about our favorite family friendly programming. These are our favorite TV shows and movies that we like to let our kids watch or that we like to watch with them. If you're a parent then you might learn about a few new shows that you didn't know about before. If you know someone with kids that you think could benefit from this topic then please forward a link to the episode to them.

A few of the other things that we talk about: Ben Affleck is not directing The Batman; Kevin Smith is directing a new episode of Supergirl with special guest Teri Hatcher; Peter Capaldi is leaving Doctor Who; James Cameron may reboot The Terminator; and Stephen King and Steven Spielberg are bringing Castle Rock to Hulu.

I also had a special interview this week with Matthew Goodson-Orr that you'll get to hear. He's one of the guys that is heading up BoroughCon in New York City. It's a brand new convention and I hope some of you guys that live in that area or that may be in that area in May will think about dropping by. If you want to find out more about it then you can go to their Facebook page here.

We're getting back to the basics this week as your two original hosts, John and myself, sit down to talk about a bunch of the movies that we're looking forward to seeing this year. We also glance over a few that we don't know anything about. And there is some discussion of television and things that we've watched recently.

I also want to invite you to check out my blog at mykidsdadisageek.com. In anticipation of my 40th birthday, which is coming up in July, I am doing a series in which I review my favorite movie from every year that I've been alive. I started with my favorite movie from 1977 and I'll lead up to my favorite movie of 2017 as of the time the blog is written. So, I hope you'll join me on that journey. I'll be releasing two posts a week until my birthday.

But as far as the the podcast goes...we've got a lot of ideas planned out for this year and I hope you'll join us for the ride. You can subscribe to the show on iTunes, Stitcher, and Podcast Addict on the Android store so that you'll never miss an episode.

CP Episode 42: Rogue One Party! (Spoilers)

We finally made it back from a very busy and very eventful holiday break. And there is no better way to break in a new year by doing a break down of the most recent Star Wars film. So in this episode we did a very spoiler filled review of "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story".

Rick and Kennedy joined John and I as we talked about all of the things that we liked and disliked about this stand-alone addition to the series. We also discussed the passing of Carrie Fisher and the Doctor Who Christmas special.

I want to let you all know that we are launching a YouTube channel this year in which we will be posting movie and TV reviews and little bit of nonsense for you to enjoy. And we're kicking off the debut of the channel with a contest. We are giving away a Rogue One themed Funko Pop Vinyl figure. All that you have to do to win is answer 5 trivia questions about the film. Just to the video here and then be the first one to email me at mail@cosmicpotatocom with all of the correct answers and you'll win the prize.

We want to give away more things but participation is the key. Subscribe to the channel and share the video on social media so that we can get the word out.

Also, make sure that you subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, Stitcher, or Podcast Addict on the Android store. Give us a rating and a review so that we can help more people find the show.

Thanks for listening. Enjoy the show!
