There were plenty of articles, blog posts, and podcasts featured for your entertainment. That’s right, this stuff was created with you in mind, dear friend, but in between your classes/job/hobbies/children/whatever, it’s possible that you didn’t have a chance to get to everything. Don’t worry, all hope is not lost! This is the place where you can start catching up on the material that you missed. Below you’ll find a few of the features that debuted this week, with descriptions and links right there. All you have to do is enjoy the content. Let’s get started, shall we?


Return of The Original Gentlemen!

Chris, Martin, Beau, and Ashley have returned with several surprises in tow on this episode of The Original Gentlemen. First, Jason Neulander, the creator of The Intergalactic Nemesis, is a featured guest and he has some big news of his own. Second, they’ve committed to a bi-weekly schedule! That’s right everyone, you’ll be getting your THEOG fix on a regular basis. To mark this joyous occasion, kick back and listen to the crew engage in a spoiler-heavy Captain America: The Winter Soldier discussion, share their thoughts on the Game of Thrones season four opener, and of course, take your questions. What more could you want?


The Top Ten Starship Captains of the Small Screen

Science-fiction television shows have introduced a number of legendary starship captains to the public consciousness. However, if you were given the herculean task of whittling down the entire list of captains down to the top ten, who would make the cut? John Eckes was brave enough to answer the call and crafted his lineup of the best leaders of space crews ever to grace the small screen? Who is the best captain of all? Do you agree with John’s reasoning? The only way to be sure is to check out his list, so do it!


Watch A Movie With Us: The Worst Films of 2013  


A short while ago, we asked you, the distinguished voting public of One of Us, to pick the three worst films of 2013. This was no simple poll for curiosity’s sake, of course. Brian and Chris promised to record Watch A Movie With Us audio commentaries for the worst of the worst and giving you the audio for the third and second place losers free of charge. This week, the promise is nearly fulfilled. Behold, the audio commentaries for Grown Ups 2 and R.I.P.D. are yours, no strings attached. Well, there is the matter of having to watch two horrible movies, but at least you’ll have your favorite internet personalities alongside you for this hellish ride.  And keep your eyes open for #1 worst film of 2013, as voted by you, which you’ll be able to purchase for the incredibly low price of $1.99!


The Die Cast: Let’s Go To Space Jail


The Chairman of the Board, Jacob Hall, is back with another tabletop adventure for you board gaming fanatics! The name of the game is Durance and it’s all about colonialism in deep space. To quote Mr. Hall, “What happens when uber-Capitalism, an underground alien drug trade, petty vengeance, wanton violence, and terrorist activity collide in a shabby dome built on a planet where oxygen is a luxury?” Well, you get a pretty insane podcast, that’s for sure! Give it a listen and experience the wonders of space Australia!
