More For Your Hole: What to Watch; PLUS: A New Shiny Batman

Regardless of your feelings towards the last season of Game of Thrones, with this cultural behemoth now gone, its left a Tormund sized hole in our hearts as well as our Sunday evening TV watching schedule. Well, like the title says, we got more for that hole! The Beta Bros have scoured the annals of entertainment to find several shows we’re looking forward to seeing. Shows that we think you’ll love and could potentially cram content into that giant gap GOT left us with.

Oh and we also can’t leave without talking about the new, shiny and sparkly announcement: We’ve got a new Batman. Is it who we would have picked? Is it an inspired choice? Will history repeat itself and will an odd casting choice actually turn out to be one of the greatest depictions of the caped crusader? So many questions…but, we’ve got your answers on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.

Celebrate the Saga: The MCU Makes History & Our Endgame Prep

Guys…we’re in the endgame now. And, that’s not just in reference to the new Avengers movie, but for all movies and how we enjoy watching them. The Infinity Saga has completely redefined our movie going experience and the sheer thought of what the MCU/Marvel Studios has been able to accomplish is amazing. To put it plainly, there has been at least one marvel movie in theaters for the past 11 years!!! So, for that, we’re not only going to talk about Endgame, we also want to take the time to celebrate the saga and look back at the last 11 years/21 movies and recount some of our favorite characters, moments, quotes, etc. All leading to our Endgame Prep.

Is Netflix a Sinking Ship?

Is Netflix a Sinking Ship?

We’re all saddened by the sudden—yet expected—news that The Punisher and Jessica Jones are now officially cancelled. The general consensus is that they’ll more than likely return on Disney’s streaming service, Disney+ due out later this year (presumably in the fall). So, with Disney making a push at the streaming service game and Hulu as well as Amazon Prime releasing great original content, is Netflix a sinking ship doomed to go under? Is there enough original content on Netflix’s roster to keep you on their service? Are they doing a good enough job of supplementing what’s leaving with something as good and/or better? The Beta Boys tackle all these questions and more, including a review of one of those original series: The Umbrella Academy.

Plus another New Tune Tuesday, on Thursday…except on Friday. All that an so much more on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.

President Patrol: TOP 3 Best American Movie Presidents

Seldom do we take the time to honor the men who shaped our country and liberated us from the oppressive tyranny of foreign and domestic threats…to a degree. Yes, these men aren’t perfect and some aren’t even competent, but what they undeniably are, are the building blocks for compelling and entertaining movie characters. With that said, in honor of President’s Day, The Beta Boys give you the TOP 3 American Movie Presidents. You’ll be surprised at some of our choices.

Also, we play a little game called “Who Said It?” featuring none other than the inspiration for many movie characters—good and bad—President Donald Trump and a slew of movie villains, cartoon characters, and celebrities. “God Bless America, and nowhere else!”

7 Unconventional Valentines Day Movies to Watch Instead of The Notebook

SICKO MODE & DAD JOKES

This episode is Sicko Mode, is gonna be Sicko Mode, is going Sicko Mode….??? We honestly have no idea how to use this word. Our age is definitely showing here. But, thankfully, we booked some teenage experts aka The KON’s kids, to walk us through the proper way of using: “Sicko Mode”. And old meets new, as The Beta Boys dust off some TBR classics with a new edition of GO/NO GO (The Prodigy & The Lego Movie 2) and A STREAM COME TRUE where we try to narrow down all of the HULU, Netflix, Amazon Prime shows or movies you should be watching.

RIP, Batfleck. So, Who's Next?

To the most homicidal iteration of Batman we’ve ever seen…we bid you farewell. As we say goodbye to Ben Affleck, our cleft chin crusader, we ask the one question on everyone’s mind: So, who’s next? Who can or should step into the cape and cowl and be the next Batman?

We also step into another dimension, where time stops and TV shows no longer get rebooted. The Beta Boys react to Jordan Peele’s upcoming reboot of the horror/sci-fi classic The Twilight Zone. There’s also a report about LOST getting the reboot treatment. But, do we need it though? We take a look at the upcoming reboots and we also offer up some of our suggestions for some reboots that we’d love to see. All that and so much more, on this week’s episode of The Beta Report.
