Winter is HERE, and we need a good laugh to get us through the long night. This week, on a special episode of the Midnight Myth, we’re hanging out in Westeros, pitting your favorite characters from Game ofThrones against each other in some surprising scenarios. Who will lead a better campaign for PTA president? Who will succeed at ASOIAF Jeopardy? These crazy questions and more as we get to the heart of characters like Khal Drogo, Hot Pie, and Olenna Tyrell. It’s a Polar Vortex Boomerangerang.
It’s the Eve of Christmas, and the Midnight Myth is here to bring you joy and cheer. With a Holiday Edition of our classic Boomerangerang, we’re swapping your favorite Christmas-y characters with non-holiday franchises to see who’d fare well in the “real world.” Who’d make a better Don Draper: Frosty the Snowman or George Bailey? All that and more. Watch our Twitter to vote for the winners, and of course, happy new year.
It’s a bonus Halloween episode, spooky scary! Derek and Laurel are back at gaming up magical characters in silly scenarios. In this Halloween flavored episode, Derek and Laurel sit around the cauldron stirring up magic potions while they battle for which witch would fare better in differing far away lands. Who will win this Boomerangerang? Be sure to visit our twitter and vote, and have a happy Halloween.
It’s another Boomerangerang—because we felt the world needed some levity, some laughs, and a dash of cosmic nihilism. If nothing matters, we might as well fight to the death over the casts of Rick & Morty and Bojack Horseman, debating nonsense with your favorite cartoon existentialists. Listen and vote along on Twitter (@themidnightmyth) to determine which adult animated franchise takes the cake.
It’s another edition of your favorite pop culture storytelling debate—the Boomerangerang! This time, we’re inspired by last week’s conversation about Dr. Watson and the sidekick, so we’re pitting the great sidekicks and henchmen of stories against each other in a one of a kind debate. We’ll each pull a sidekick or henchman from a hat, then argue who’d be the best right hand confidant of a particular hero. Tons of nerdy arguments, deep insights about Spongebob Squarepants, and weird surprises await.
Derek and Laurel are back at competitive story-themed debates in a very special Boomerangerang— as they engage in all things Buffy. Your hosts pit Sunnydale High's superhero, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Willow, Xander, Giles and the Scooby gang against monsters from the Hellmouth in odd and unexpected scenarios, and they’ll try to figure out which character would fare better. This no-holds-barred debate has something for every Buffy fan as we try to work out our feelings about the upcoming REBOOT. Keep an eye on our Twitter this week to share your thoughts on who will win!
There is a power in all of us, waiting to be tapped into, and it is unlocked through the magic of human emotion. This week’s episode is dedicated to celebrating one of the Hollywood’s greatest studios: Pixar. In a part game, part analysis, and part fresh take into The Incredibles 2, Derek and Laurel cherish and toast the animation studio which brings man, woman, and child together for a nice song and good cry.
It’s good to be back in the studio with a new Boomerangerang—an all-game, all-debate, all-awesome back and forth starring your favorite Star Wars heroes, villains, and unexpected side characters. Join us as we explore the merits of Jar Jar Binks as a web developer, Admiral Holdo as an international diplomat, or Darth Vader as a travel agent. Pick a side, make an argument, and enjoy.
