Episode 28

After muchos delay due to Christmas, New Years, sickness, coughs and technical lameness, the Racks are back for 2009, yo!… Ahem… Anyway, in this mammoth New Years episode, the ladies tackle some important topics such as Iz’s middle name, reviewing comics without having read them and making up brand new words. Stace disagrees with nearly everything Iz has to say, the girls ramble on a little too much about Christmas and New Year, and Elmo makes his Racks debut!

In the news section, hear what the Racks think of the new Doctor Who, some more names get announced for Cymru Con and Stace shares some sad news regarding Bristol Con 2009…

Due to the length of time between recordings, the ladies have lots of comic-y film-y TV-y (TV-y??) goodness to share in their extended reviews section. Stace finally reads and reviews Echo, Iz forgets whether she’s reviewed Powers already or not, and the podcast strays into dangerous territory when cripple fights get mentioned… Also covered are Spider-Man Noir #1, Doc Walloper #5, They Live!, Eagle Vs Shark and lots of other randomness! Squeeee! (There’s some serious spoilerage in this episode, so keep your ears out!)

All this, plus Iz trashing Stace’s Rack Music pick, some terrible Irish accents and Stace singing. Again.

Episode 29: Barrowmanamania

In a bid to save your ears from bleeding mid-episode, the main topic (featuring quite poor sound quality clips of the Racks live from the Birmingham Hippodrome) has been shunted to the end of the episode. Listen at your own peril!

Anyhoo, this slightly shorter episode sees the girls attempt to keep their reviews to a minimum, touching on Superman Red Son, Ellis’ Thunderbolts Vol 1, Proof, and Igor – of course the plan to keep it short(ish) totally goes to pot when Stace interrupts the recording to read and give an impromptu review of Secret Six #5. The Top and Tail segment sees a joint, non-comic related Top, and a Dr Who episode that did not impress Stacey

During the News segment, Stacey depresses everyone with talk of Diamond’s new order limit, but Iz saves the day by pimping out The Uniques and a new podcast.

On top of this, Stace reveals exactly how to get her totally wasted, Iz speaks of fur muffs and they both get a little bit too excited over a certain John Barrowman and his appearance in the rather spiffy pantomime, Robin Hood. Swoon!!
