CELEBRATING TWO FUCKING YEARS OF DIC GEEKS
EPISODE FIFTY BAYBEE
WE STILL GOT FAR TOO MUCH STUFF TO WATCH THROUGH OH GOD
Mark and Avery finally tackle Dic’s big movie McGuffin, Inspector Gadget (1999) starring Matthew Broderick. How does one describe Inspector Gadget the movie? Well, first take about 3 or 4 vague character traits from the cartoon along with their names, hire actors that have a vague passing resemblance to their cartoon counterparts and then consequently ignore everything else the source material has to offer. Then proceed to create an hour long movie that constantly throws cartoon antics at you in a vague attempt to keep you engaged to the film whilst it blasts bizarre product placement at you. That should just about do it. Put simply, it’s bloody awful. And it’s time to give it its just desserts.
Now the eagle eyed of you might have noticed that this episode is an entire week late. We acknowledged this as being a possibility in the original recording itself due to the length of it nearly clocking in at 2 hours along with also getting a new computer (which theoretically means more efficient editing), but then new life issues suddenly reared its ugly head in right as things were seemingly starting to settle down. Oh, and the microphone gave us the gift of corrupted audio again. Yay. So, yeah, this episode is not only late but its not in the best of condition either. There’s an audio warning before Avery’s microphone gets REAL bad along with a timestamp so you can skip that part of the episode; you’ll miss some of the discussion, but at the same time you’ll also save your ears from quite the grating experience. The episode intended to come out this week will be coming out shortly after this one as compensation, and then we’ll try to resume our regular schedule. Ta for putting up with us!
