What we’re Enjoying

Jay is digging the retro vibes and modern day storytelling of the Disney+ series X-Men ‘97. Lots of great moments from Marvel’s mutant family with all the nostalgia of the original series. Shua recommends Mel Brooks’s autobiography “All About Me” which was released in 2021. If you listen to the audiobook, you can enjoy Brooks’s still hysterical delivery of the story of his life and career. 

 

Sci-Fi Saturdays

This week on Sci-Fi Saturdays Jay revisits the 2004 Will Smith futuristic vision I, Robot. Based on a series of stories by Isaac Asimov, it tells the story of a murder committed by a robotic personal assistant in a future that seems a lot closer today than it did in ‘04. And it examines the ethical conundrums of the dangers of AI. Check it out today!  Make sure to play around with the interactive map on MCULocationScout.com. Plus, you can tune in to  SHIELD: Case Files where Jay and Shua talk about great stuff in the MCU.  

 

Enjoy Star Wars! 

We start off season 4 of Enjoy Stuff with a look at the adult side of Star Wars. Don’t worry, the kids won’t need to leave the room. Now that the OG fans are AARP fans, how has the galaxy changed perspective? There are a ton of things that are aimed exclusively to adults from jewelry to gaming. Some of our childhood hobbies have expanded into complex (and often expensive) pastimes. We try to answer the question “who is Star Wars really for?” and think we have a pretty good conclusion: Everybody, of course!



What kinds of adult Star Wars things do you do? Do you still gravitate towards the kids stuff? First person that emails me with the subject line, “Adulting Strikes Back” will get a special mention on the show.  Let us know.
