This special episode of the Needless Things Podcast presents the exploration of Corpsewood Manor, the site of murders that shocked Georgia in the early 1980s. Dave, Ryan Cadaver, and Rad Ranger traveled to Trion, Georgia to examine the once majestic ruins of the ill-fated paradise.

In December of 1982 Dr. Charles L. Scudder and his partner, Joseph Odom were murdered inside their dream home in the remote woods of the Chattahoochee National Forest. The openly gay couple had a reputation for Satanism and homemade drugs, and were despised by some in the local community.

Listen in as the Needless Commentary crew investigates the occurrence and explores the site in the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast!

LIVE from Dragon Con 2017, but the perfect way to kick off 31 Days of Halloween on the Needless Things Podcast, Dave talks to one of the most notable horror icons in the history of professional wrestling – the Big Red Machine, Kane!

Outside of wrestling Kane portrayed one of the latest and biggest in the grand lineage of slashers, Jacob Goodnight in the See No Evil movie franchise!

The Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to watch Star Trek: Discovery!

Discovery is the newest entry into the mighty Star Trek franchise, and one that CBS is hoping will lure customers to subscribe to their proprietary streaming service. Basically nobody is happy about that, and it's possible that before too much longer CBS isn't going to be happy about it, either. But that's neither here nor there.

In today's episode, the Commentary team is joined by Mike Gordon, Gary Mitchel, and Monica Moniker to watch the premiere episode of Discovery and provide pre- and post-show thoughts.

Listen in as Dave, Arian, Rad Ranger, and the rest react to Star Trek: Discovery - “Vulcan Hello”!

Needless Things Podcast 178 – Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie Needless Commentary

September 14th, 2017
NT%2B178%2Bpic.jpg

Part of an ongoing series – the Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to provide their own unique commentary on classic genre films!

It’s Rad Ranger’s birthday, so he picked 1995’s Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: The Movie for September’s Commentary!

There was no bigger children’s franchise in 1995 than the Power Rangers, so obviously Hollywood wanted to capitalize on it with a silver screen adaptation. Featuring a new villain, the cast from the TV show, CGI Zords, and a strangely good soundtrack, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: The Movie sits in a weird place between canon and pure Hollywood narrative.

Listen in as Dave, Arian, Ryan, and Rad Ranger’s Girlfriend (no, really!) mock the ever-loving shit out of their pal Rad Ranger! Happy birthday, indeed!

Needless Things Podcast 174 – Dragon Con 2017: Dragonslayer Needless Commentary

August 17th, 2017
NT%2B174%2Bpic.jpg


Part of an ongoing series – the Needless Things Irregulars gather in the Phantom Zone to provide their own unique commentary on classic genre films!

Special guest Award-Winning Bobby Nash joins the Commentary Team for the first-ever Dragon Con-themed Commentary – 1981's Dragonslayer!

Everyone knows that dragons are badass, but for some reason Hollywood has rarely done a good job of capitalizing on their badass-ness. One of the seminal early 80s HBO standards was Matthew Robbins' Dragonslayer, a film set to cash in on the fantasy craze of the day, with a little Mark Hamill-ness thrown in by way of a young Peter MacNicol.

Featuring gorgeous locations and tremendous production design, the film failed to become the blockbuster that had been hoped for and even today hasn't managed to achieve even a cult status. In a tribute to the awesomeness of Dragon Con and of dragons, the Irregulars delve into Dragonslayer and offer up their thoughts as to what, if anything, went wrong.

Listen in as Phantom Troublemaker, Bobby Nash, Arian, and Rad Ranger gather in the Phantom Zone to bear witness to the might of Vermithrax Pejorative, the best-named thing ever!
