Goooooood morning!

We're back and we're talking about yet another fantastic Netflix MCU series that will likely get the axe: The Punisher. We've made mention of our infatuation with the Marvel character in previous but with season 2 having been released last month, we figure now was the time to dedicate an episode about Marvel's most well-known t-shirt logo.


Sidenote: We recorded this around the time of the polar vortex so apologies if our references are a little dated.

Gooooooood morning!


Mike returns to the 8AM Shift to discuss the recent cancellation of Daredevil on Netflix, which is the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe TV series to get the axe. Mike and Jordan have both watched season 3 and can attest to the quality, which begs the question, why did they cancel a series that was getting better? The 8AM Shift gathers around a table in a cold room to examine this recent turn of events.


VOTE FOGGY NELSON FOR MANHATTAN DA (yes it's a fake ad)...[00:04]

Goooood morning!


Is Creed 2 a superior film? While most would show preference for the first one, Jordan caught the feels while watching the sequel. What was it that had him in the zone? Was it the heartwarming elements of fatherhood? The will to come back from a massive loss? Hearing "Going The Distance" again? Listen as Joe and Jordan give their hot takes on the box-office hit that will have you doing pull-ups at the gym for two weeks straight.


Jordan had the feels...he also didn't watch Creed 1 in theaters...[1:47]

How we got Creed the franchise....[4:45]

The point when Joe got "swept up"...[6:57]

Is Creed 2 the most meta Rocky movie?...[7:25]

Is Rocky Balboa better than Rocky V?...[13:24]

The Rocky Cinematic Universe...[18:36]

Goooooood morning!


Hey Shifters — before we got sucked into Thanksgiving, we recorded an episode discussing the myriad of movies in the pipeline that are spin-offs of TV shows. This includes Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, The Walking Dead, Deadwood and possibly Peaky Blinders. Yet we had to ask: is this a good idea?

  • WE ARE NOT IN DANGER...[00:47]
  • The GQ article from 2013 that hinted at a sequel...[3:12]
  • Joe’s Imogen Poots rabbit hole...[4:55]
  • What would make Jordan be against a Breaking Bad movie? Hint: vomits in mouth...[11:25]
  • The other sequel movies...[17:15]
  • Will The Sopranos movie, The Many Saints of Newark, generate as many “woke” (vomiting in our mouths) clickbait headlines as we think?...[20:44]
  • The proposed Peaky Blinders movie...[25:30]

Gooooood morning!


Hey Shifters,

As many of you know, we are huge fans of the Marvel universe and often reference their properties on this podcast. The recent passing of Stan Lee really touched us and we felt it was only right if we eulogized him in an episode. #RIPStanLee, you kept us inspired and gave us some of the best memories ever, from childhood to adulthood.

  • Our earliest memories of Stan Lee...[1:37]
  • Joe recounts his special memory tied to a specific trading card — the 1990 Mr. Marvel Trading Card!...[3:02]
  • Apparently Joe thought it was Jake “The Snake”...[3:19]
  • The “Marvel method”...[7:46]
  • Sidenote: Joe mentions Daredevil but he meant Deadpool. ;-) Apparently there’s a petition to have him make cameos in Marvel movies...[12:43]
  • Does Christian Bale love his fans the way Stan Lee loved his fans?...[16:32]
  • The Hollywood Reporter ad from the cast of The Avengers...[17:30]
  • Stan Lee and the Civil Rights movement...[20:03]
  • Our thoughts on the Disney streaming service...[26:00]
  • Jordan’s grad school paper and the Stan Lee memoir...[27:05]
  • What is the one thing that Jordan wanted to ask Stan Lee? (Hint: it involves the writer James Baldwin)...[27:50]

Goooooooood morning!


Hey Shifters have you spent the last few weeks playing Red Dead Redemption 2? Did you watch the season finale of Mayans M.C. on FX? Are secretly yearning for the Deadwood movie to finally come out? Do you secretly wish for Westworld to become a real thing or at the very least an immersive VR experience that you would never have to leave? If the answer is yes to at least 1 of these questions, then you will probably like this episode. We're diving into the world of outlaws given the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 and we are asking: what is it about outlaw mythology that seems to capture peoples attention?


Before that we speak on the recent midterm elections and the fun we had at the voting booth! Make sure to listen and like the 8AM Shift.

  • Jordan didn’t vote...(SIKE)...[00:40]
  • Joe and Jordan went to vote in their old neighborhood schools...[3:05]
  • Was that Paul Provolone?...[4:20]
  • Follow the 8AM Shift Facebook page...[6:40]

Gooooood morning!


Question: If a movie starring Ralph Fiennes, Angela Bassett, and Juliette Lewis, directed by Kathryn Bigelow, with a screenplay co-written by James Cameron, came out in 1995, should it not have been a box-office smash?


What is this movie was also a sci-fi dystopia in which Angela Bassett is a kick-ass heroine trying to shed light on a cover-up by corrupt officials?


That's exactly what Strange Days is and was a brick when it dropped that year. However, Jordan watched it recently and had an epiphany that perhaps it deserves a cult renaissance. With 90's nostalgia in full swing and the idea that society is living out a political dystopia, why not take a moment to experience this Strange Days, which was way ahead of its time.

  • Jordan’s fashion choices circa 1998...[1:04]
  • Dystopian movies usually have a checklist...[1:54]
  • James Cameron: more famous for Avatar?...[5:00]
  • Kathryn Bigelow is an incredible director...[5:20]
  • Strange Days — sequel in spirit to Blade Runner?...[6:35] (make sure to check out this referenced article from Pajiba)
  • The hardest part about watching Strange Days...[10:45]
  • End credit banter...[13:12]

Happpppy Halloweeeeen!


What is the overlap between mental health and the supernatural? Conventional and modern medical wisdom tells us that there isn't any overlap, but the Netflix series The Haunting of Hill House definitely creates a world where those two issues can co-exist. That said, we are back and we're discussing this incredible family drama/horror series on this special Halloween episode.


Also joining us on this episode is Joe's brother, Mike, who you may remember from our Dead President's episode.

  • What’s really frightening? The talk around the new Clueless movie reboot ...[1:30]
  • But, who else wants Stacey Dash in this new Clueless movie?...[1:40]
  • Special returning guest Mike, who also happens to run our Facebook account ...[2:07]
  • Jordan took his time with THOHH...largely because it wasn’t A Bronx Tale...[20:48]
  • Joe gives us some gory details about a standout scene from Gerald’s Game with Carla Gugino...[23:45]
  • Why did we love this series so much?...[34:08]
  • Our favorite episodes...[36:41]

Gooooood morning!


Hey Shifters -- do you think Black Panther deserves the Best Picture nomination at this year's Academy Awards? The 8AM Shift does. We recently came across American Psycho author and pop culture critic Bret Easton Ellis' disapproval of the nod and felt compelled to discuss it.
