DUCK TALES – THE FINALE REVIEW
In 2017 Disney rolled the dice on rebooting one of the most beloved animated television classics of all time. Featuring the hilarious and on the rise talents of Ben Schwartz (“Sonic the Hedgehog”) Danny Pudi (“Community”) Bobby Moynihan (SNL) Kate Micucci (Garfunkel and Oates) and featuring for the first time in history, a Scottish Shakespearean thespian providing the life and personality of Scrooge McDuck, David Tennant (“Doctor Who”). Scrooge is the richest duck in the world. He earned everything he has by being tougher than the toughest and smarter than the smartest. His days of adventure are long behind him until one day his nephew Donald Duck (Tony Anselmo) calls on him to watch after his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie. They reignite the old codger’s fire for discovery and together learn that there is no greater adventure than family. Bradly, Spider-Mike, and very special guest Maciej Kur (Co-creator of comic “Lil i Put”) discuss the old and new denizens of Duckburg and how the new series rewrites history for better or worst and what they thought of the feature-length finale.

Michael Riojas (Screener Squad, Highly Suspect Reviews)
The man with the ever-changing nicknames. Born in Austin, Riojas was rocketed to Del Rio, Texas, a literal small ville. In his youth, he was bitten by a radioactive… okay, look. Mike is not very good at this whole “talking about himself” thing. But he has been so obsessed with comics, video games, and anime since childhood- that if one has to choose between listening to Joe Quesada or Mike over any obscure Spider-Man trivia, they go to him (or, at least Martin Thomas once said so). He is also a big fan of “Ghostbusters” (he even owns his own jumpsuit and two, that’s right, TWO proton packs!), collects toys and video games, and will defend “Superman IV: The Quest for Peace” if provoked. He lives in Austin with his beloved Dachshund-Maltese and trusted sidekick, Dean. He can also be heard on RageSelect. He can be found on Twitter and Instagram.
Bradly Martin (Screener Squad, Eye on the Prize, Breakfast Pub)
Bradly Martin was born in the united states and grew up on a healthy diet of sports, films, and books. A rather shy lad who kept to himself, Bradly soon discovered the best way to know a person was to know what people liked. Through out the years Bradly became a fan of many things and a fanatic of none. From Doctor Dre, to Doctor Strange and the who’s who of Whos. From Playstation to the Dreamcast and Marvel to DC. From LeBron James to James Bond and Lord of the Rings to Lord Palmerston (or Pitt the Elder if you agree with Wade Boggs) and is a huge fan of dad jokes and randomly obscure Simpsons references. Armed with a vast knowledge of comics, films, and pop culture. Bradly traveled the world making friends and sharing takes. As a young man Bradly married the love of his life young and grew older every year with each new child brought into the brood. If trends continue, Scientists predict that .2% of Canada (where Bradly and family reside) will be populated by Bradly’s children by the year 2029. You can hear him leading and listening to his favorite critics on the Screener Squad and Eye on the prize and maybe even provide some comments of his own.
