Laser Knees 73 – Robotic Aerobics

Well, after that last episode of the UnKamenCast, it’s quite a relief to be talking about something so much more mellow and sweet, like these episodes of Lupinranger VS Patranger!

In this episode, your humble(ish) hosts touch upon:

  • Touma can really rock aerobicwear
  • A little touch of Uncomfortably Real-ness
  • The Lupins being jerks in ways that are unrelated to their devil-may-care approach to the law
  • Good dads in media
  • The importance of normalizing apologies
  • Noel continues to be mysteeeeeerious.  But in a good way.

All this and more on this episode of Laser Knees!

UnKamen RX 205 – Only Human

vlcsnap-2018-09-27-18h06m16s927

In this episode, your favorite hosts confront the horrific and implacable fact of death and how to write one that’s more than just a character being dead.

Sorry to start out so heavy, y’all, but this is a heavy episode to talk about and it’s the specter that hangs over pretty much everything.  Suffice to say, though, that we quite enjoyed the episode we discuss here.
