Laser Knees 100 – Just Plain Mean

Holy wow!  It’s been 100 episodes of TOH! Network Super Sentai breakdowns!  From Sono and Ammit branching out from the UnKamenCast with Aleph in tow to the present day!  From Zyuohger to Kyuranger to LuPat and here into the mid-section of Ryusoulger, what a wild ride it’s been.  One full of ups, downs, and long diversions into utter nonsense.

Thanks for sticking with us.

In this episode of Laser Knees, Our Heroes meet an adorable punch-robot and perform some heart surgery with some dubious tools while your Humble Hosts look on in quiet (well, y’know; “quiet”) horror.  Highlights include a translation explanation, Sono wonders what kinds of power Kureon holds, and Aleph continues to say nice things about Naruhisa Arakawa.

Laser Knees 98 – The Collectible Soul-Trading Game?!

In this episode of Laser Knees, your favorite a podcast that you definitely probably listen to, the Ryusoulgers do some soul-searching and your Humble Hosts do a little, too!

This time ’round, Sono decries mean-spirited writing, Aleph admires the best adult at the YuGiOh tournament, and we all agree they can’t all be winners.

Laser Knees 97 – Extended Fourze Reference

Dino KITAAAAAAA!

It’s time again for another episode of Laser Knees where the moon powers are made up and the points are physical matter!  In this episode, Sono appreciates Wyzul not being the absolute worst, everyone’s terribly emotional about the return of the dead, and Aleph reminds us about the most powerful force in the universe.

Laser Knees 96 – Robot Dinosaur Baseball Bat

It’s time for another look at our favorite (or, well, at least our currently-airing) dinosaur-based Super Sentai with your favorite* hosts!

In this episode of Laser Knees, Sono adores magic paper, Aleph is proud of his son, and we all learn that following rules just because they’re rules is not as good as knowing what the rules are meant to do.

*not necessarily, we know

Laser Knees 95 – A Rainbow Connection

NOTE:  Due to some audio difficulties, the audio for episode 94 was lost.  A copy of our notes for the episode may be found here: [GDOCS]

Your Humble-ish Hosts are back with a new episode of Laser Knees’ excellent adequate decent existing commentary on DinoKnight Sentai RyuSoulGer!  In this episode, Aleph hates on a robot (shock! horror!), Sono is excited by telepathy, and it becomes canon that Banba [CENSORED]s.

Laser Knees 93 – Rise Up, Comrade Kureon!

In an unexpected continuation of our recognitions of various things rising, it’s time for Laser Knees to gives some love to the proletariat!  In this episode, Sono ponders a life beneath the waves, Aleph gets grossed right the heck out, and Kureon embodies the proletariat’s need to organize in the face of capital which exploits their labor while failing to repay that exploitation with basic respect and dignity.

Also, the Great New Character Find of 2019: Prime Minister Reiko Kano.

If you play the drinking game where you take a drink when the hosts of Laser Knees reveal their political leanings in off-hand or direct ways, we advise you not to play this time ’round.  It might well kill you.
