There are five humans on Planet Earth who have not seen Breaking Bad. These humans were once selected by one Zordon to defend the Earth from Rita Repulsa’s conquering army. Once I learned that my dear friend Jerry was one of those five humans, I had to bring back Outside The Comfort Zone to make him watch Breaking Bad. We of course decided to not discuss Jerry’s experiences as a Power Ranger due to the fact that this is stuff he feels really uncomfortable revisiting.

Either way, we hope you enjoy this one! It was a really fun one to make and we hope to start bringing these back to this place sooner rather than later.

Welcome to another Outside The Comfort Zone. For this one we have our senior Moonologist, Anne, reveal her true colors as a Starscream apologist/Autoboctor as we discuss three iterations of Hasbro’s Transformers (Generation 1, Prime and Animated) as well as surrounding weirdness like the Transformers’ shojo manga and Bayformers.

I will say, Jerry and Anne grabbed me and converted me into a person who would be interested in watching more Transformers. So they win. This time.

After this, we will return to discuss G.I Joe’s nuttiness and after that, we will handle Jem. Hopefully you enjoy this and discover the Power of Human Relations.

It’s Episode 2 of Outside The Comfort Zone. Jerry forced me to watch various instances of the TMNT franchises in honor of the Michael Bay-released reboot and as part of our start of a month-based project to examine certain 80s franchise remnants. Join us as we discuss the 2012 cartoon, the 2003 cartoon and the IDW comic and we consider the value of the Eastman and Laird-created franchise. Hopefully you’ll learn to cowabunga, dude or whatever the hell is Mikey even on about.

During the month of September, we will be examining Transformers and G.I Joe alongside fellow Nerdstocker Anne. It should be fun and you will finally get to hear both Jerry’s 20 page thesis on why Cobra Commander is actually the greatest character of all time and Anne’s novelette on the Megatron/Starscream dichotomy that defines man.

The Brain on Airwaves are officially at Nerdstock!

And what better way of celebrating it than by rebooting Outside the Comfort Zone to discuss the 2014 winter it-show, True Detective. As always, I’m joined by my co-host and hero of millions, Jerry and we discuss a show that by all accounts was remarkable but which Jerry was entirely dissatisfied with.

As a bit of a footnote, because I feel I was a bit too harsh here: True Detective is easily one of my favorite shows of the year. But it’s significantly flawed and I feel that discussing those flaws is as necessary as discussing its virtues, which have been dissected and brought up at great length.

Either way, we hope to see you at Lost Carcosa, where strange moons circle through the skies and where the tatters of kings flap.
