Henry’s brain is back this week to carry the bulk of this episode for better or worse. What he planned to talk about? The Dwayne Johnson vs Vin Diesel beef. What they end up talking about? A girl who sells farts in jars has a heart attack and has to retire. So it might be for the worse. Who knows? We cover it all here on Zero Credit(s), and we mean it all.
As the nights grow long, the need for content grows stronger. To that end, we’re here for you with the latest in the ongoing feud between Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson. That’s right, every update, we are here for you to dive deep into every little detail and talk way too much about it. We also have some local Austin news that made waves on the internet in the way of a new academic institution. All of that, plus jokes about the Venomverse right here on Zero Credit(s).
In 2020, a man had a vision. Car go space? Justin Lin was assigned the task and boy, does he ever technically deliver. But is the 9th installment of this time-honored franchise a good entry into the official canon of American muscle cars? Only time will tell, folks. Only time will tell. Until then, here’s our hastily rendered opinions based on vague memories and feelings of sitting in a theatre without the ability to take notes!
After a year plus delay, the time is finally here – Henry and John are going to see the next installment of that time-honored film franchise that is Fast and Furious. But first, let’s check in on Quibi and get lots of things wrong about how podcasts work. It’s all right here, on Zero Credit(s).
John’s back and the world breathes out a sigh of relief since that means Jeff won’t even come close to ruining this episode. Thank god, right? Isn’t Jeff the worst? I hope he reads this. We get right into it with some topics I don’t remember but we eventually start talking about the upcoming sequel to Bloodshot starring Vin Diesel. Look, it’s Thanksgiving and I’m full of Turkey, so I’m gonna wrap this up. Thanks for listening to Zero Credit(s) and happy Thanksgiving!
Valiant comics may not be as well known as your run of the mill DC or Marvel comics, but they still exist and with Marvel being over and DC being…DC, Valiant Entertainment is in a prime position to take over the superhero space with their particular brand of superhero. To kick things off we have Bloodshot, starring Vin Diesel, Eiza Gonzalez, Guy Pearce, and Winston from New Girls. Will this origin story turned action adventure thriller be good enough to launch an entire cinematic universe? Well, that’s for us to decide.
**THIS IS A SUPPLEMENTAL READING, MEANING WE TALK ABOUT THE MOVIE IN SUCH A MANNER THAT IT WOULD BE BEST IF YOU, DEAR LISTENER, HAVE SEEN THE MOVIE WE’RE TALKING ABOUT BEFORE LISTENING TO THIS EPISODE**
At the time of recording this episode, Henry was growing increasingly worried about his company’s lack of response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, while John was on day 6 of his company mandated quarantine. So things were a little bit weird in the studio for this one, to say the least. However, we have the finale of the Fast and Furious: Spyracers discussions and a whole heaping of good news that may have been overshadowed in this trying time. Stay safe out there and WASH YOUR HANDS.
The year is 2020. The place, America. Newly elected President Bernie Sanders takes the podium in front of the newly renovated Black House. He’s all decked out in his black eye liner, black painted nails, and his executive studded leather choker around his neck. “America,” he says, “My fourth act as Goth President is upon you. Behold. Our new national anthem.” Release the Bats by The Birthday Party begins broadcasting nationwide on all channels. Right before the first chorus, Bernie speaks again, “And now, America, behold our new national bird.” Thousands of bats are released from holding cages hidden behind stage. They swarm through the crowd, confused and chattering. “Our flag,” Bernie says, holding up a perfect replica of the United States flag, only it’s completely black. “The America you knew is dead. This is the new America. This is how things are now. It’s not a phase.” The crowd goes wild.
Also, Fast and Furious: Spyracers episode six is discussed.
Spyracers gets okayish, we make a huge FFCU discovery, and then we make another huge FFCU discovery.
It’s all Fast and Furious all the time here at Zero Credit(s). You ride. You fight.
Four years, 200+ episodes over three shows, and 167 episodes of the main show. It’s been a journey. When John and I set out to create this podcast, we had but one goal in mind: to one day have over 50% of each episode dedicated solely to the Fast and Furious franchise of movies, television shows, and video games. We hadn’t even watched the films when we started four years ago, but somehow we knew this was going to be the goal. It was knowledge we didn’t understand filtered through the inky blackness of the cultural zeitgeist. Now here we are, with the third installment of our MiniSupRed of Fast and Furious: Spyracers and a live-listening of the trailer for F9: The Fast Saga serving as the bread of our content sandwich today. In the middle, a nice juicy look at where corporate America thinks the common interest lie through the BIG GAME commercials that the world watches with awe. This year, like many years before it, companies demonstrated a deft out-of-touch quality with an over saturation of celebrity gags and heartfelt, gaslighting messages about firefighters. But anyway, here we go.
From everyone here at the Zero Credit(s) podcast studios, John and I want to thank everyone for listening to this dumb podcast. We would absolutely probably be doing this without you, but it’s so much nicer with you hear. So thanks for listening and here’s to four more years of not knowing what the hell we’re talking about.
