If you're listening to The Grindhouse, that means you are actually alive and it IS 2017, folks!  AGAIN, welcome to Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse podcast airing every Saturday at 6pm sharp (ET). Join your podcast Travelers (Claire Lanay, Capt. Kirk, Daryll B and Dburt) as they discuss this week pop/pulp culture issues: Dburt discovers the newly released Netflix animated series, Tarzan and Jane and it appears to eschew the character's racist underpinnings; Fox' latest interpolation of The Wizard of Oz mythos entitled, Emerald City just aired; actress, Sarah Michelle Gellar shoots down any ideas for a mature Buffy reboot (unless Joss Whedon is involved); comic book publisher, About Comics, which specializes in heritage revivals of forgotten works (from creators like Charles Schulz, Kurt Busiek, etc) is reprinting the Negro Motorist Green Book from 1940; a new Powerless trailer appears to have changed some things (from insurance to R & D?); Dburt ponders...should we expect comic characters to evolve?  And if they do, can we expect that evolution to be a part of canon? (I.e. Spidey from teacher to CEO; Batman and Superman have sons, etc); another query: is it an inevitability that fictional addresses will become real (i.e.  221B Baker St; 1007 Mountain Dr, Gotham, etc)?; Hidden Figures makes it the theaters this weekend to rave reviews; more on Netflix' Travelers; more on the Black Netflix, Brown Sugar. And speaking of Brown Sugar, Shadow and Act highlights martial arts legend, Ron Van Clief and his remastered Blu-Ray classic, The Black Dragon's Revenge.  Call in live at 646-915-9620.
