George and Tony Entertainment Show

The Perils and Perversions of Riverdale

Artist Rodney Roberts had so much fun on last week's show that he couldn't wait to return to sit in the guest co-host chair yet again this week. Rodney changed his tune on Star Trek: Discovery, George saw Battle of the Sexes, both of our heroes read some comics, and what the heck is going on in Riverdale? Plus, All Star Comic Con is coming to the Sheraton in Tysons Corner, VA June 15-17, 2018 and the Hallmark Channel Countdown to Christmas Movie Marathon starts October 27, 2017. Bring it on!

For all things Rodney Roberts, check him out on Facebook and Instagram at iongraphx. Hey, we got it right this time...we hope.

Podcasting Trinity

Eric from Longbox Review (www.longboxreview.com) returns to the guest co-host hot seat and brings along another veteran of podcasting - Peter Rios from The Daily Rios (www.thedailyrios.com). Peter was one of the original hosts of Comic Geek Speak and he has now teamed up with Eric for another podcast called The Legion Project. The Legion Project examines the famed "Baxter run" of the Legion of Superheroes from the mid-80s. Check it out on each of their iTunes feeds (subscribe to Longbox Review and The Daily Rios on iTunes and tell 'em George and Tony sent you).

This week we get to know Peter from his podcasting pedigree to his work in the theater. Eric gives us his thoughts on Star Trek: Discovery and the Hamilton soundtrack. And George...well, George is just along for the ride.

First there was Harvey, then there was Irma, and now Hurricane Maria has devastated Puerto Rico. Please check out www.redcross.org to find out how you can help those affected by these natural disasters.

Birthdays, Bees, and Battles

Rob Shade won't let a little alliteration prevent him from returning to the show as a guest co-host. George tells the tale of his trip to New York, Rob reminds us he may or may not have made the cut in the recently released film Battle of the Sexes, and our heroes see two miraculous movies.

All this plus the Emmys, Twin Peaks, and George's wife gets stung by a bee!
