Sadly, at the beginning of Segs 1 & 3 it was pretty evident, but gradually it's not as bad as the ep goes along. Sorry about that. ~_~

Yea, I'm still listening to the episode, clearly. And it is subsiding. Pretty great discussion so far! Thanks!

Soul Bro, I really have to defend "Legend of Chun Li" to the core. In spite of some sort of issues, it's a better movie than I thought. Although I would have to say, the narrative by Chun Li should have been omitted. However, other than Michael Clarke Duncan, the only person would have fitted perfect for playing Balrog is ironically Bob Sapp. Balrog's characteristic in the movie is actually closer than the first movie. I actually like Bison being a crime boss than a warlord, and make him really subtly psychotic with valid reason for being who he is, it's quite terrifying than previous incarnation. btw, Neal McDonough had played villain before (Walking Tall). The qi part actually originated from the Street Fighter II animated series (Hadou Ken), so that makes sense. The fight scenes is quite realistic and very brutal, even though it may have looked a bit more like Hong Kong movies made by Jackie Chan. I don't really mind the homage so much, but making Chun Li's battleground into a metropolitan area was quite refreshing. After all, Bison is a bloody criminal in any version. A few more points to be considered, Michelle Yeoh is now a talent agent in Hong Kong, so she doesn't have time to be an actress anymore, Isabelle Leong (Yeoh's client) had a baby last year, so she's out, Zhang Ziyi have her own deals in China, so who else is there to play Chun-Li? Joan Chen's getting too old and so is Ming-Na Wen, who ironically played the first Chun-Li. So that argument is really getting rubbish when you want Chinese actress to play that, luckily, there's Cheng Pei-Pei, who made an effective cameo as a guide to Robin Shou (Gen), who was Lu Kang in Mortal Kombat movies, and Josie Ho (Catana), whose father Stanley Ho is a tycoon in Macao (btw, he had just left the hospital after suffering a stroke), she was quite effective in that fight scene with Kristen Kreuk. One last thing about Bison's army, it reminds me of PMC like the infamous Blackwater, and using the organized crime element to blend into that movie is just sheer brilliant. Did I mention the fact that with honestly, somewhat limited background information on characters to begin with, this movie does a better job of how those characters developed than the previously "hokey" movie back in the 1990s. Also, since the sentiment of this country's view of our military isn't what it used to be, I don't blame the production for changing the army into PMC-esque. Maybe it's my background in HK movies, but overall, I enjoyed that movie much more than others.

Please don't make me quoting certain wrestlers' catchphrases (What?!) or you don't want to find out how nasty it gets (What?!). Tell me you didn't just say that (What?!)

This all in all ended up being a rather interesting episode for discussion topics, not to mention apart from the usual Gundamn crew,
you either had Dale or Pedro along with Austin which all in all made the humor more funny then usual when you have 5 hosts on all of the pannels and stuff. :P

I'm surprised in the movies topic you guys didn't discuss Iron Man 2 with that coming out in the not too distant future.

We'll probably hit Iron Man 2 when it comes later on this year. In the meantime, you should check out our review of the first Iron Man, done about 3 years ago. One of our best reviews.

I glanced through the episode index, which one is actually the episode which has the segment and discussion on Iron Man?

One of the worst adaptations ever is Judge Dredd, I'm surprised that you boys haven't mentioned either, although Speed Racer is very close. thank god I haven't watched it at all. As far as my dream Gundam series goes, it's combining Infernal Affairs, Sliders, Battlestar Galatica (reimagined), and Transformers.

The segment which doesn't exsist but yet does exsist lol.

Probably one of the greatest segments ever "And then it was gone" as Soul Bro said in episode 28.

We need a "revised" Iron Man discussion one day Chris, does Soul Bro owe that much to us all? :P

Man, this is one of my favorite episodes ever! The Mecha Cliches section was great with the audience.

Also WTF@1:19:00! "That's the best man" "It's.. uh.. it's shuu!" I bought this toy from a Gundam keychain vending machine, and each keychain was supposed to say something different. I wanted the one that said "Amuro, launching!", but I got the stupid eyecatch noise :x I've never figured out what that is.

Ha!
Chris says otherwise :P

Besides Hawk of Endynion you are not me, but I am you, so wrap your brain around that one!
It takes a Mu La Flagga to make the Hawk of Endymion. :P

Anyways it would be nice to see the lost Iron Man segment one day, I did ask if this was Soul Bro Ryu's doing anyway?

Thanks for coming out to megacon again Gundamn crew. It was easily the highlight of the convention for me, as this year's megacon was a bit lackluster to say the least.

Anyways, I still feel kind of ripped off over whole Iron Man thing.
Who else feels that way? :P

And FYI, I'm just trying to screw with Neo's brain, hell it might work on Soul Bro Ryu, Neo is fortunately more smarter on average.

This episode was hilarious. Its a shame I wasn't able to go to Megacon this year with the two great shows you all had.

I have to 2nd Mu La Flaga's feelings. I want that Iron Man segment, but I know its never gonna happen. 8)
