The Weekly Stuff Podcast #317 – The Top 10 Video Games of 2019


It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link. 

After being delayed by Jonathan’s trip to Japan and our Best of the Decade episodes, it’s finally time for our annual countdown of the very best Video Games of the year. And it’s better late than never, because 2019 was a really interesting year for games, and both of us wound up with eclectic, surprising Top 10 lists that don’t look quite like any countdown we’ve done in years past, allowing us to go deep with some games we’ve never talked about before, and revisit favorites that were recurring podcast topics throughout the year. It’s a great conversation, and before that, we also break down two weeks’ worth of news, including some Dragon Ball announcements, a Platinum Games Kickstarter, and more news about the PS5, while Jonathan gives a quick review of the surprisingly good Sonic the Hedgehog movie, a fun and heartfelt film that ensures we’re having a good time talking about video games from the beginning to the end of one of the longest podcasts we’ve ever recorded. 

Oh, and this is only Part 1. But you’ll have to listen through to the surprise cliffhanger at the very end to find out why. Enjoy!

The Weekly Stuff Podcast #316 – TV Round-up! The Witcher, Watchmen, and The Mandalorian Reviews!


It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link

In a very rare move for this podcast, this week’s show is all about American television, as we dive deep with three very different, very good genre shows from the end of 2019: Disney+’s outstanding Star Wars series The Mandalorian, HBO’s wildly ambitious Watchmen, and Netflix’s unexpectedly strong The Witcher. Every one of these shows was a pleasant surprise – some more so than others – and each wrangles a tricky property into serial television in really interesting ways. They’re all worthy of discussion, and it was a lot of fun to break each of them down. Before that, we also give some first impressions of the Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot video game, and talk about the news that Netflix is, inexplicably, developing a live-action One Piece TV series. 

Enjoy!
