The Overground: The Auto-Pilot Episode

And we're back after a long hiatus, well sorta. Anyway, What happens when one of our moderators goes AWOL? Well, the roundtable left unchecked go on a spree of tangents from scratching geopolitical takedowns to berating infamous screenwriters, the Peacemaker finale, what comic traumatized one of our commentators, the Book of Boba Fett, and much more!  It’s time to go back to the overground!

This Week in Pop Topix 2/18/22

And we're back for more cool news in pop culture for the week of February 18th, 2022. So, "in case you missed it.." Here are this week's topics! Spider-Man surpasses Avatar as the third highest-grossing domestic box office movie in history! They said it couldn’t be possible, but yes it has happened! The second sequel to the 3rd rebooted Spider-Man series, has managed to top James Cameron’s avatar as the new box office champ as it has surpassed the $760 million mark domestically taking down 2009’s Avatar a notch in a race to become the third-highest grossing domestic release.

Apart from the legendary TV show Supernatural, CW deserves all the shitting it gets with their agenda-ridden bullshit, but also their sappy, hokey, cheesy TV shows. The Walker: Texas Ranger remake was just that. Sappy, hokey, cheesy with a lot of not-done music. It’s to vomit. And I like Jared Pa
