Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: Superboy

Ronnie: We’re back everybody, and as is customary for Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie between seasons of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman we’re going to be taking a look at a different adaptation of Superman. This time we’ve chosen Superboy, the Superman show you probably never heard of and never

Deliver The Profile Episode 221: Chiraq

The boys’ trip to Chicago concludes in a weird episode about an unsub killing at the behest of an Internet radio show. Hey, we don’t write this shit. Potentially more interesting is a subplot in which Rossi meets with his third ex-wife because she wants him to attend his daughter’s wedding. The thing is, the

Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: “Whine, Whine, Whine”/”And The Answer Is…”

Chris: So, I watched the first two seasons of Smallville, which was at least two seasons too many. My recollection is that it’s few virtues (John Glover, the idea that Young Lex Luthor would spend large portions of his day trying to get Young Clark Kent laid, John Glover) were far outweighed by its many

Deliver The Profile: Kino Korner: Jurassic World Dominion

Ronnie and Jazz go to the movies, and this time it’s the abominable locust themed film Jurassic World Dominion. To quote William Hurt in A History of Violence, “HOWWWW do you fuck THAT up?”, that referring to a movie about dinosaurs in an uneasy coexistence with humans? Listen to the podcast to find out!

 

Deliver The Profile Episode 220: Abducted in Plain Sight

“Where’s Hotch?” is over, so the boys are taking a two part trip to Chicago baby, Chi-ca-go. In “The Return”, children are being recruited by some sort of boogerman to commit violent crimes against the police. This is stupid for a number of reasons, as Ronnie and Jazz will point out in the podcast, but

Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: “Target: Jimmy Olsen!”/”Individual Responsibility”

Ronnie: In our penultimate column of Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie for the second season of Lois & Clark, we’re faced with something that occurs rarely but still too often: the Jimmy spotlight episode. Chris and I are in agreement that while Landes’ portrayal wasn’t great, Season 1 Jimmy far outpaces Season 2

Deliver The Profile Episode 219: “Creeps”

“Where’s Hotch?” comes to an end and finally Ronnie and Jazz can stop with the Season 12 episodes already. “Elliott’s Pond” is about some kids who go missing in a case that resembles an earlier child abduction. Wrapped up in all of this is Neil Phipps, the creep from Eagleheart. Will they find the kids

Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: “Resurrection”/”Tempus Fugitive”

Chris: Hello and welcome to another edition of Treading Water and Chris and Ronnie. I’m sorry, I meant to say Lois and Clark and Chris and Ronnie, but this week it might as well be the same thing as our series of hard-hitting articles discussing the occasionally remembered ABC nighttime soap Lois & Clark hits

Deliver The Profile Episode 218: The Minotaur

In “The Anti-Terror(ism) Squad” the most vulnerable of us all are targeted: bullies. Will the Mindsers stop the threat to our treasured bullies or will, as is what usually happens, a bunch of people die until they ultimately stop an unsub that’s holding someone at gunpoint? Ronnie tries to convince Jazz all this episode is

Deliver The Profile Minisode 6: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Ronnie tells Jazz about the time he went to go see the latest Marvel masterpiece, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

 

Deliver The Profile Episode 217: Brother’s Creeper

“Where’s Hotch” continues with a tale as old as time: the collector of body parts who starts chucking them everywhere. Who is he, and does he have a brother? That’s what the BAU intends to find out, and Ronnie and Jazz just want to make fun of the whole process.

 

Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: “Return of the Prankster”/”Lucky Leon”

Ronnie: Well, it’s not quite Lex Luthor’s return, but this week on Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie we have the resurgence of another comics based foe, the Prankster as portrayed by Bronson Pinchot. Chris likes this Prankster more than I do, but I have to admit that I found myself warming to him

Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: “The Phoenix”/”Top Copy”

Chris: We’ve detected an odd trend developing here at the old Lois and Clark and Chris and Ronnie offices. As you may have noticed, we alternate who opens and closes each article. Lately it’s seemed like the quality of the episodes we’ve covered have risen and fallen in little two-episode arcs such that I keep

Deliver The Profile Episode 216: Step Counts

Ronnie and Jazz do an episode of Criminal Minds about the craze sweeping the nation: incest. In “Taboo”, the unsub wants to fuck his mother, and his mother wants to fuck everyone due to her brain damage. It’s complicated.

 

Deliver The Profile Episode 215: Sicko Day

Here it is, folks: the final episode of Aaron Hotchner’s storied FBI career. Of course it wasn’t designed that way, which the hosts will delve into over the course of “Sick Day”, which nominally is a JJ episode. I know, I know, but we’ll get through it together.

 

Deliver The Profile: Kino Korner: Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Ronnie and Jazz review a sicko for adults only film, Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

 

Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: “Chi of Steel”/”The Eyes Have It”

Ronnie: This time out on Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie I have to apologize ahead of time: the writers on the show thought for some reason they could ably write about other cultures, people not their own. There is a resounding rebuke to that idea in the content of these episodes, “Chi of

Deliver The Profile Gimme Morbius Episode 1: Morbius

The boys review the most anticipated film of 2022, Morbius.

 

Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: “Season’s Greedings”/”Metallo”

Chris: Hey there cats and kittens, and welcome to another installment of Lois and Clark and Chris and Ronnie, 2022’s fourth most popular website for tracking the overlapping of the casts of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and Seinfeld. I think I can speak for both Ronnie and myself when I say

Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: “That Old Gang of Mine”/”A Bolt From the Blue”

Ronnie: We’re back at Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie, the one source for contemporary examination of the hit ABC series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. As you may or may not know, I’m an obsessive fan of the 90s syndicated superhero show Night Man. In it, jazz musician Johnny Domino

Deliver The Profile Episode 214: Storm’s Coming, Yo!

Deliver The Profile is FINALLY back to, well, delivering the profile with the Season 11 finale, “The Storm”! How was this not Hotch’s exit? What exactly do the writers think anarchy is? Do “serial killer wings” of prisons exist? This episode confounded the boys, so expect more questions. Also: Ronnie got a new TV and
Continue reading…

 

Deliver The Profile Kino Korner: The Batman

Ronnie and Jazz forgot the premise of their own show so it’s another movie episode. This time it’s THE BATMAN, the 70th film adaptation of the DC Comics character created by Bob Kane and Bob Kane only. Why does Riddler look like a Trailer Park Boys character? Why does Catwoman look like Aubrey Plaza in

Deliver The Profile Episode 213: Profiling 202, Reid!

Ronnie and Jazz finally wrap up the Saga of the Womb Raider.

 

Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: “Church of Metropolis”/”Operation Blackout”

Chris: Hey hi everyone and welcome back to Lois and Clark and Chris and Ronnie, your one stop shopping destination for recaps of old episodes of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman in 2022. Also, possibly your only stop shopping destination.  I can’t imagine why there would be more than one site dedicated

Deliver The Profile Kino Korner: Uncharted

Ronnie tortures Jazz by making him watch, and then talk about, the adaptation of one of his favorite video game franchises. Ronnie tortures himself by watching a movie anchored by Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg. No one wins, except you, the listeners.

 

Deliver The Profile Kino Korner: Moonfall

The boys review Roland Emmerich’s latest, Moonfall. Is this the dumbest movie ever? Yes. Is it also entertaining? Yes.

 

Deliver The Profile Minisode #5: Nothing Ever Ends

Ronnie and Jazz spend 40 minutes discussing the implications of Paramount Plus’ revival of Criminal Minds getting a second wind.

 

Spidey Boyz: A No Way Home Detox

I wasn’t originally going to write this, letting the 2 ½ hour podcast speak for itself, until I realized writing about how much I hated the new Spider-Man is the perfect excuse of getting away from my relatives for a few hours. My relatives aren’t terrible but I’d still rather time with my increasingly fuzzy

Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: “The Source”/”The Prankster”

Ronnie: Welcome back to Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie, your #1 source for retrospective reviews of Lois & Clark, one of the many Superman adaptations and definitely one of them. We’re now into Season 2, a Season 2 without Lex, without Cat, with a new Jimmy. The writing staff all left/got shitcanned at

Deliver The Profile Episode 212: Profiling 101, Reid!

Rossi teaches an undergraduate class about the Womb Raider in “Profiling 101″, a format breaking episode that reminds us that format breaking doesn’t necessarily mean good. Why name an unsub after a Tomb Raider porn parody? Also: Ronnie and Jazz went to see Scream aka 5Cream. That it wasn’t its own episode or minisode speaks

Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: “Madame Ex”/”Wall of Sound”

Chris: And we’re back! After a brief detour into the dour, bleached out, twenty-first century life of Superman on the CW, we’re returning to Metropolis and the go-go 90s as Lois and Clark opens its second season. I don’t know about you Ronnie, but I’m glad to be home. We left L&C dangling off a

Deliver The Profile The REAL Episode 211: On The Ethics Of Buying A Monkey

A few weeks ago I screwed up and mislabeled an episode as #211. Well, this is the actual 211, folks. “Bully” sees everybody going to Blake’s hometown of Kansas City to solve some beating murders in which the victims are dressed in women’s underwear. Someone’s hunting J. Edgar Hoover! The podcast runs a little short

Deliver The Profile Episode 210: Last Gasp of Relevancy

Well, BAU Disassembled ends with the cast cast to the four corners of the Earth. Reid is teaching, Rossi is helping out on a film set, Lewis is helping out Mulder and Scully in couples counseling (no really), and Prentiss is on the rat squad. What could force the team back together? Well, a contrivance

Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: Superman & Lois

Ronnie: Welcome to a special edition of Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie. Why special, you ask? Well, in this one we don’t talk about episodes of Lois & Clark at all. Instead we’re training our eyes on the current Superman show on the air, Superman & Lois to see how the two compare
Continue reading…

 

Deliver The Profile Episode 209: Binda

The penultimate entry of BAU Disassembled occurs as “Annihilator” sees Linda Barnes (Binda) go out into the field to mess things up for the gang. A house of roommates and their companions are slaughtered. Who did it? Who cares, really, as the case is a means to an end: showing Binda is incompetent. Ronnie and

Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: “Barbarians at the Planet”/”The House of Luthor”

Chris: Well friends, here we are, at the end of the first lap of our journey through comic book television history called Lois and Clark and Chris and Ronnie. And I don’t know about you all, but I’m no closer to answering the questions posed in our first entry than I was then. What is

Deliver The Profile Episode 208: You Can’t Fire Me I Quit

A-plot: Corpses are piling up in N’Awlins, the city that encourages all manner of vice up until the point of addiction. B-plot: Prentiss goes to the principal’s office. Exciting sounding, doesn’t it?

 

Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: “Vatman”/”Fly Hard”

Ronnie: At Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie, we take our responsibility to the reader seriously. That means no breaks, except that one we did around Thanksgiving. But other than that, we’re like the postal service, rain, sleet, or snow, we’ll deliver you some hot takes on old television. This time out we’re doing

Deliver The Profile Episode 207: The XMas Spectacular

Ronnie and Jazz review “Cure”, part 1 of BAU Disassembled. Enjoy the holidays, whichever it may be!

 

Menom on Venom Episode 2: Spider-Man: No Way Home

It’s here! It’s finally here! We’re of course referring to the second episode of Menom on Venom, the occasional Deliver The Profile spinoff that deals with all things goopy and first personal plural usage. Since Venom DOES appear in the 138th MCU film, SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME, it is our sworn duty to give it

Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: “Foundling”/”The Rival”

Chris:.The lights are starting to dim here at the Lois and Clark and Chris and Ronnie office as we prepare both for the biggest, most commercial, and therefore best holiday of the year, and begin winding down our coverage of the first season of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. The show enters

Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: “Illusions of Grandeur”/”The Ides of Metropolis”

Ronnie: It’s a busy week for Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie, as we have to contend with the world of magic as well as the world of computer viruses. But first, Superman interacts with geese in a new low for the show’s already stretched thin special effects budget. In suburbia, two kids find

Deliver The Profile Episode 206: Some Sort of Slendered Man

Ronnie and Jazz must contend with the Slender Man before there was a Slender Man, also known as “The Tall Man”. What does it have to do with JJ’s long dead sister? Why should we care? Has this show’s effects budget been slashed to garbage or what? Finally: how offensive is this episode to what

Kino Korner: Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City

The conventional wisdom has been that video game adaptations by and large suck. That does not mean they’re necessarily unsuccessful. If nothing else, the Resident Evil series has proven there is merit to marrying your leading lady, as Paul Widescreen Anderson has jostled up the ranks of Wife Guys. The films were also runaway successes,

Deliver The Profile Episode 205: Werewolf Dentures

Monster Month(s) marches on when “Bad Moon on the Rise” hits Ronnie and Jazz like a hooked fish. But yes, this one is about a werewolf, and yes, this includes scenes in which the cast discuss werewolves. It may sound fun and whimsical, but it’s not. It’s stupid. It’s stupid like the rest of the
Continue reading…

 

Deliver The Profile Episode 204: Skull & Crossbones

With “Submerged”, Ronnie and Jazz deal with the most horrible scourge of all: pirates.

 

Kino Korner: Ghostbusters: Afterlife

Why the fuck is the locus point of the culture war the movie Ghostbusters? That’s not rhetorical; I’d really like to know. For whatever reason, Ghostbusters: Answer the Call was a microcosm for the fight between liberal progress and reactionary forces. The movie’s quality was secondary to how it fit within a larger narrative that
Continue reading…

 

Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie: “All Shook Up”/”Witness”

Chris: Hey hi, welcome once again to Lois & Clark & Chris & Ronnie, your one stop shopping destination for Lois & Clark analysis with as many Seinfeld references shoved in as possible. This week we’re covering episodes 11 and 12 of the first season, “All Shook Up” and “Witness”.  “All Shook Up” serves up

Deliver The Profile: Kino Korner: Ghostbusters: Afterlife

Instead of doing a Criminal Minds this week, Ronnie and Jazz delve into the world of film with the worst of the year (so far), Ghostbusters: Afterlife! Why bring in Paul Rudd and make him a supporting character? Who wanted Ghostbusters gene slammed with The Goonies? Oh, you better believe it’s disrespectful to Howard “Bedazzled”

Deliver The Profile Episode 203: Neon Demon (plus important Nicholas Brendon news)

Let’s start with the important stuff: Nicholas Brendon’s dick. Does it work or is it still under construction? Listen to find out. Then stick around for the part of the show that fulfills the podcast’s purpose, as the boys discuss “Neon Terror”. A media-obsessed unsub is killing people and taping them. Is it a not
