This week, we look at the Rubik’s Cube! Why did the world become fascinated with a small puzzle box and how did it expand beyond the toy shelf? We get to the bottom of this, while becoming increasingly frustrated by flashbacks of puzzles unsolved. Join us, will you, as we investigate the history of the Rubik’s cube and those who have come to love and hate it.
(Note: We’re very sorry if this causes you to enter the nightmare realm of the cube)
This week, we take a voyage back to Detroit of the 1980’s to discuss everyone’s favorite cyborg law enforcement officer – RoboCop!

The greatest moment in human history.

This week, we take a look at one of the biggest misfires in marketing history… CRYSTAL PEPSI. Find out about the short lived life of this infamous soft drink that really didn’t know what it was and how it somehow found a way to make it back onto shelves.
And… WE’RE BACK! Welcome to an all-new season of The Obscure Gentlemen. Today, Aaron and Alex are joined by fellow pop culture enthusiast, Benjamin Kim. The topic at hand for the season opener? WWE’s father figure and head honcho… VINCE McMAHON. – ‘Nuff Said.
(Warning: The line between fiction and reality may be blurred – leaving you in a world of pain, strutting and ketchup on steaks.)
Yesterday I saw a god die and it made me angry. On the evening of 12/28 I went on Twitter to see what was going on. At first it was the usual joke formats followed by people pretending to be cool. Then I looked to see a retweet that said words that I never wanted to see “Lemmy of Motorhead has passed away”. I was filled with immediate disbelief and denial. It’s the internet, this must be a lame hoax. Turns out that it was not. My heart weighed heavy after coming to terms that a true god of rock had died. One of the first bands I liked along with Black Sabbath, Metallica, and Slayer was Motorhead. A band fronted by an ugly looking man with moles and facial hair of an evil biker and a rough jagged voice to match. His music was simple, fast, and hard which for a teen in high school was inspirational. I remember my Mom saying how he couldn’t sing and my thought was “Good, he doesn’t need to sing well. He’s Lemmy Kilmister”. When people talk about what Rock N’ Roll is they are describing Lemmy of Motorhead. He wasn’t concerned about being cool or having an image. He drank to excess and received oral sex while on stage, because that’s what a god damn rock god does. He wore daisy duke cutoff shorts and sang songs about sex, fighting, and living free. On the internet people like to say that they “give no fucks” but they are lying. Lemmy Kilmister truly gave no fucks and inspired millions with his music and silly interviews. I love his music deeply and have always held him up there as one of the main icons of rock and music in general. Yesterday I was angry because when this planet loses something so amazing and awe inspiring you should be pissed. You should scream to the heavens and mourn it’s passing. Then when all is said and done you pay tribute and honor them in how you think they would want to. Carry on the memory of this giant who lived among us. Drink up for Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister. There will never be another Lemmy Kilmister but there will always be Motorhead.
The artwork above was done by Gentlemen artist Aaron Alvarez who also shares my love for what we lost. It makes me happy to see that someone who touched and inspired me like Lemmy also did the same for my little brother.
As someone who was admittedly excited for the era of the twelfth Doctor to begin, I was also quite vocal regarding my disappointment and disillusionment with the result of his maiden go at the controls of the TARDIS. That wasn’t a slight against Peter Capaldi, but rather the stories themselves. Following the underwhelming, Alien-esque “Last Christmas”, I couldn’t help but wonder if I was in store for more of the same.
Readers please note:
If you’re familiar at all with my previous reviews, you’ll know I try to make them as spoiler free as I possibly can, sometimes to the point of being overly vague, all the while trying to keep your interest. If you know the formula of Doctor Who, you know that nothing can stay the same; it must constantly change and evolve.
There is a certain inevitability when someone, be it the Doctor or the companion must move on.

Meet, Edgar. And finally, we get the conclusion to Doctor Who’s “The Woman Who Lived”.
(Note: Anything said about either Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean Claude Van Damme or Dolph Lundgren is out of pure strong dude love and respect. Steven Segal is a poop though.)

Oh yeah, one more thing… Star Wars the Force Awakens theatrical trailer.
(We do not fault you for crying.)
Well, friends and neighbors, where should I start?
How about we start with the positives and work our way down.
Now for the negatives:
Though it’s been done to death, the “zombie apocalypse” storyline is still an intriguing one. When done right, that is. Fear the Walking Dead largely fails to capture any of the excitement, sense of urgency, or suspense associated with this scenario; choosing instead to crawl through the maiden season at a dull snail’s pace. I do give the writers credit for trying to put an emphasis on the characters. That however leads us to the show’s other major shortfall: those characters simply aren’t interesting. I don’t care about any of them; the exception being chubby, Hispanic high school student, Tobias, who actually has an idea about what’s going on. Unfortunately, he only appears in a few scenes in the first two episodes. I hope he made it. Everyone else comes off flat and far too boring for me to want them to survive the outbreak. Overacting would be preferable to what we get over the bulk of the six episodes. The introduction of Mr. Strand in episodes 5 and 6 might be the only other exception. In fact I’d be perfectly fine if the entire cast was killed off in the second season premiere. Even the unstoppable juggernaut known as Ruben Blades doesn’t really add anything to the mix. A Predator 2-style exit wouldn’t be unwelcome.
Since I reside near Los Angeles, where the series takes place, I was hoping to see some familiar sights but here again I was let down. We’re mainly confined to indoor locations, mostly a couple of houses, through the first few episodes with a bit of “downtown” and the LA River sprinkled in. Having been principally filmed in Vancouver, BC, I guess I shouldn’t have been too surprised. Sunken City being featured as the locale in the finale’s last scene was a nice touch and a personal treat for me since I go hiking there from time to time.
Here’s the bottom line:
A decent storyline (though far from an original one), and some brief glimpses of promise, primarily from the finale, couldn’t overcome the huge hurdles of: a lack of interesting, appealing characters, and five generally boring episodes out of a six-episode season.
I wanted to like this show. I thought it could have been that breath of fresh, undead air the franchise needed. I’ve been openly critical of the original show the last couple of seasons, but I find that I’m looking forward to its return.
If Fear the Walking Dead keeps heading this way, the only thing you need fear is narcolepsy.

La Jiggy Jar Jar Doo,

(Note: We are not responsible for any madness that may occur after listening to our Halloween Spotlight segment.)
This video is serious and in no way a joke. The internet said so.
This week, Aaron and Alex are joined by two guests. Founder and head writer of the Obscure Gentlemen, James Alvarez and Plain Zero host Travis Kennedy. All four have gathered to discuss the horror movie that has everyone spooked – The Babadook. So, how does this horror film stack up and does it bring anything new to the table? Is the hype truly real?! You’ll have to listen to find out.

It’s Wednesday and you know what that means… COMICS! On today’s show, Alex and Aaron delve into the seedy underbelly of X-Fandom and their view of the franchise at it currently stands. But who or what is this CompleX and why do they fear that their time is at an end?! Be prepared to find out the shocking truth! Then, rejoice friends! Bill Finger is finally getting some recognition for Batman – but what does the internet think? Also, stay tuned for an announcement of sorts at episodes end.
Today, on a very important episode, Aaron and Alex take a look at something that could very well change the world as we know it. The very future of mankind hangs in the balance and Antonio Banderas has the answer to all of our problems and prayers. Afterwards the boys check out the premiere of the new Muppet show and the grief it’s causing those whose only joy in life comes from a pig and a frog being romantically involved. Then stick around for some Doctor Who talk back with The Witches Familiar!
Only watch the above clip if you want to cry your eyes out.
On today’s very special episode of Wednesday Comics, Aaron and Alex talk about comic book histories greatest monster… BOB KANE. No description can sum up what a horrible and piece of work this man was, so you’ll just have to listen for yourselves. Find out how Batman’s “creator” rose to the notoriety that he did and just how many broken spirits he left along the way. You want comic book history, you got it.
(Note: As of this episodes release it was announced that Bill Finger will finally be receiving a co-creator credit for Batman. After 75 years, justice has finally been served.)
This week, Aaron and Alex get upset over the possible demise of Pacific Rim 2 because of last weeks King Kong vs. Godzilla news. Afterwards they take a gander at the feedback that Jon Favreau’s upcoming live-action adaptation of Disney’s The Jungle Book – let’s just say Jason Scott Lee still has fans. And finally, the guys and special guest Travis Kennedy take a break from Netflix Roulette to focus on something more important… Doctor Who, Series 9.
(Note: All Doctor Who talk contains heavy spoilers. Please feel free to ignore this and send us hate mail saying we never warned you. We would very much enjoy that.)
Caution, this may be 2 brutal 4u.
It’s Wednesday Comics again and Aaron n’ Alex are bringing the heat! This week off the heels of the recent Batman v. Superman movie news, they take a look at what changed the dynamic of the two men once known as the Worlds Finest. Then, they go a bit deeper and tackle something a little more serious, centered around a recently revived obscure Marvel hero… RED WOLF! Strap yourself in tight and get ready for some comic book talk!

(Warning: If you are a Batman fan, please remain calm and don’t send us exploding pies/fish in the mail for possibly-maybe saying anything remotely negative about your lord and savior Bruce Wayne.)
While waiting for Godzilla Vs. King Kong 20XX, check out this combination to celluloid.
Alex considers this viable. Please let us know why Alex is wrong on the matter.

This is not a hoax! Not a trick! Not a dream or fantasy! Not even a ruse of any kind! This is WEDNESDAY COMICS from the Obscure Gentlemen!
This week is a whopper, as Aaron and Alex discuss the ongoing storm taking place around Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.

Finally, Netflix Roulette brings us into the high octane world of Australian robbery at the hands of… John Cusack?!
Oh, and Jimmy Snucka is a murderer.
Aaron and Alex are back! This week they investigate the buzz around a viral video that reveals Johnny as the true hero of Karate Kid, with Ralph Machio as the unquestionable enemy of mankind. Also learn why professional tiny man, Glenn Danzig, is wearing shorts on the beach. Then, rev up your motor because Netflix Roulette has returned and this one is sure to be a rumble!
Aaron and Alex are joined again this week with wrestling superfan extraordinaire, Benjamin Kim of Variable Motors. Today’s wrestling themed episode takes a look at various legends and the strange connection that they all share to John Cena. Also a special tribute at the end to greatest wrestler of all time and idol ta’ millions.
Aaron and Alex are joined by Benjamin Kim this week, as the three discuss the upcoming “edgy” Power Rangers movie and unleash a hefty nostalgia bomb that is the 1990’s. What does it mean to be a 90’s kid? Put on an over-sized T-Shirt, load up your boom box with batteries and get ready for some good vibrations.
(note: we really hope you don’t listen to this on a boom box. That’s just weird.)
Today’s episode takes a look at 20th Century Fox’s massive train wreck, Fantastic Four – or is that Fan4stic? Aaron and Alex also try out something new and then see what possible nightmare Netflix Roulette has given birth to. Also, take a quick detour into Flavor Town and beyond!
In my youth there were many villains. In Star Wars there was Darth Vader, Transformers had Megatron, GI Joe had Cobra Commander and the WWF had Rowdy Roddy Piper. I hated this man for being an over the top jerk. In wrestling every villain had a built in gimmick of hate and annoyance. Piper made you hate him because he was good at his job. He was Stone cold before Stone Cold. Of course he eventually tried his hand at movies which had many misses but one huge cult hit. They Live was a movie that I fondly remember from my child hood and still holds up today as I just watched it a few days ago. So with that I say farewell to a man that made it possible for me to root for the good guys in wrestling. A guy who was here to chew bubble gum and kick ass and he finally ran out of both. Fare thee well angry man in blue underwear, we salute you.
This week the guys see how people feel about Channing Tatum and his now confirmed role as Gambit, in the upcoming solo X-Men movie. Also, revisit the world of Harry Potter… kind of and see what Netflix Roulette had in store this week!
This week, Marvel’s Ant-Man is on the menu – worry not, there are no spoilers to be found. They also see what the deal with Sonic the Hedgehog fans is and watch a movie that has caused one man 3 years of suffering. Also some stuff about a racist man with a handlebar mustache.
This week Aaron and Alex jump right into X-Men: Apocalypse and it’s Power Rangers like problems. They also take a look at why everyone is treating Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice as the fight of the century and find out why some franchises should stay dead.
This week Aaron and Alex see what the buzz is around the upcoming Goosebumps movie, and discuss the finer points of the spooky horror books that haunted their childhoods. They also find out why everyone is talking about Subway’s freshly prepared sandwiches. Also Robot Jox is somehow brought up for the first time in 20 years, but you’ll have to listen to see why.
This is it everyone, the day you’ve been waiting for – The Obscure Gentlemen Podcast. Each week Co-Founder and artist Aaron A. Alvarez and his trusty Co-Host Alex Mitchell will take you on a journey through pop culture as only the internet can explain it. Be prepared for a lot of absurdity and nonsense.
This week the guys take a look at the Rocky spin-off Creed starring Michael B. Jordan, a stroll down a buster sword littered nostalgia lane, and the glory that can only be captured by an oiled up buff man with a saxophone. This and much more, on the first episode of The Obscure Gentlemen Podcast.
Today we pay our respects and say farewell to to an acting villain and legend. He was the face of villainy and leaves us with a body of work that’s hard to duplicate. He will be missed and with that we say goodbye Mr. Lee, one of the greatest fictional villains to ever live.
Obscure Gent on behalf of Aaron
Aaron did this tribute to Leonard Nimoy, a fallen sci-fi warrior. Aaron appreciates everything Nimoy did and therefore wanted to do this.
Today, we lost an icon. Some people will not understand that sadness that this loss has brought onto most people, but I say it is a great loss. To me Nimoy sits on the pantheon of sci-fi and nerdom that I love. He’s part of the reason that I love what I love. When I was younger and I would repeat in my head something that Spock once said “Pain is a thing of the mind. The mind can be controlled.”. He was the logic that kept the typical hero archetype that was Kirk. Through the years he did amazing voice over work that I loved in Transformers, Futurama, and the Simpsons. Lastly I will always remember his amazing villain role as Dr. William Bell in one of my favorite all time shows Fringe. I will miss the greatness he brought to this world but will always preserve it in memory.
On August 23rd, with much anticipation and excitement, The Doctor made his long-awaited return; the first episode for the newly regenerated Time Lord. The 12th Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi, was the topic of much heated debate on the internets during the show’s hiatus. I chose to adopt a “wait and see” attitude and once again put my trust in the show’s casting geniuses, which so far, had done an outstanding job with their selections.
The series premiere, “Deep Breath” was a fantastical tale woven by Steven Moffat. Set in Victorian London, it features a T-Rex, cyborgs, and the return of the Paternoster Gang. A dear, old friend makes a surprise, emotion-eliciting reappearance as well. The episode’s conclusion introduces the enigmatic, “Missy” (Michelle Gomez), as The Doctor’s nemesis for the series. By the end of this nearly 90 minute rollercoaster ride, I felt confident that everything was going to be alright and all doubters would be subsequently silenced.
And then something happened…

Today is an exciting day for me. Today is the day that the episode of Rock Solid that I got to co-host has been unleashed! Rock Solid is a comedy/music podcast. Each episode has a theme in which Host Pat Francis and one of his four rotating co-hosts (Mike Siegel, April Richardson, Murray Valeriano, and Christy Stratton), joined by producer Kyle Dodson, play songs that relate to that topic and discuss. The result is a mash up of hilarity and rock that is sure to entertain. I had a great deal of fun recording this episode with the fine folks of that podcast. And I hope that you will have a good time listening to the episode.
“And now it’s time for one last bow, like all your other selves. Eleven’s hour is over now. The clock is striking twelve’s.” And so we find ourselves in the final hour of Matt Smith’s tenure as The Doctor. What a fantastic hour it is. Yell “Geronimo!” and hit the jump to keep reading. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
“What I did, I did without choice… in the name of peace and sanity.” –The Doctor
After The Name of the Doctor’s shocking final scene, we had to wait to wait six long, arduous months to find out exactly what in the name of Gallifrey was going on.
On November, 23rd, 2013, we finally got that answer. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
Following the events of “The End of Time”, David Tennant’s storied run as The Doctor came to an emotionally charged end. Enter the 11th, and current Doctor, played by Northampton, England’s Matt Smith. At 26, he would be the youngest actor to portray The Doctor since Peter Davison. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
June 18th, 2005 would mark the final appearance of the 9th doctor. Regenerating in his place was diminutive Scottish actor, David Tennant. His first episode was “The Christmas Invasion”, and by the end of his tenure at the completion of “The End of Time” some five years, he would have left an indelible mark in Doctor Who history. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
After a 16 year absence (not counting the 1996 made-for-TV movie), the Time Lord was back, along with his magical blue box, the TARDIS, as Doctor Who made its proper, triumphant return on March 26th, 2005. Christopher Eccleston, from the north of England, was tabbed to portray this newest incarnation of the recently regenerated Doctor. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
I’ve been a fan of Andrei Esca’s web comic Esca Works for a while now. I first found his comic when someone sent me an image of his character Sam who resembles the Gentlemen character James (A.K.A. Me). I started reading all of his comics because I’m vain and like looking at cartoon versions that resemble me. Besides of vanity, his comic is drawn beautifully and humor escalates him above most comics that I used to read (So, go to his site now!). This bastard also took a long hiatus awhile back so it’s good to be able to see brand new content from him. One of the things he did recently was draw the 6 Gentlemen. I feel honored to have our characters drawn by this man and love the fuck out of how he made me extremely ripped. So gaze upon his beautiful artwork and be in awe!
Do you remember that one perfect night? One where you and your friends were invincible and the world was yours for the taking? No? Well, Gary King does, and he’s convinced four of his friends to help him recreate that momentous night. And what a night it is as the dangers of nostalgia and not being able to look forward are explored in the frantic sci-fi comedy, The World’s End. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
It’s been about three months (at the time of this writing) since the game had been released. Bioshock Infinite was released on March 26th 2013. On March 27th, 2013, the seed of obsession began to germinate.
I had been seeing the commercials on TV and hearing from twitter how amazing Bioshock Infinite is. My initial thought was “yeah, that looks like a neat game but… I don’t know…”. My hesitation was based purely on the cost of the game, as well as my perception that the game was only available on consoles. I currently own 2 consoles, a Wii (for Netflix), and a NES/SNES clone. This should give you a good idea of my “gamer” street cred. I am a gamer, there’s no doubt about that; but I carefully choose the games I’d like to play, because they are wallet draining. Fine, I’m cheap! There I said it, now I don’t have to pay a therapist. Score!
