Comic Book Men
Anyone else catch this? Other than the bearded guy being kind of a douche, it had its moments. That bit where they called up Robert Bruce was hilarious. Seriously, a folded Australian DOTD poster? Hahahaha.

It'll definitely wear thin pretty quickly, but I'll probably tune in for the next few weeks and see where it goes.

Im a die hard Tell Em Steve Dave Podcast fan... one of only 2 podcasts I never miss (the other being Doug Loves Movies).

I am actually getting ready to watch the premiere in a few minutes when it re-airs at 2am. Looking forward to it.

Just a shame that Q isnt a part of the show, but he isnt a member of the comic book store. I haven't been able to see his Prank show yet, hopefully when it hits DVD.

The bearded dude is Brian Johnson, or "Steve Dave" from the earlier Askewniverse movies. He is super hilarious on the podcasts (as is everyone).

Cant wait to see the first episode.. especially seeing Walt, Walt is the shit!

Watched the first episode and LOVED IT!

It is pretty near to watching a live action Tell Em Steve Dave podcast.

Brian Johnson (The bearded dude), I guess if you don't know the relationship between these guys, he may come off as a douche, but that is the way my friends and I are as well. We make fun of each other, because we are close friends and it is funny. That is all that is, that relationship with Ming and Brian.

I wonder if Kevin Smith will be in on the recording every week (And what is that recording, is that a podcast recording, or just a forum for them to sit around and talk within the episode?)

It is funny as hell, having always heard about just how fucking cheap Walt is, but to see it in action.. holy shit!! Is that cheapness or is that a quality business mind! It's insane to watch how just $10 - $15 difference changes a sale!

I look forward to next weeks show (And of course the next Tell Em Steve Dave podcast where they discuss the show). I really hope the numbers are there for this show and it sticks around.

(One thing I don't get, and only a Tell Em Steve Dave fan can clear up for me: I didn't know Ming actually worked at the store, I thought he was just the IT guy for Kevin Smith, creating the websites and all of that... I wonder if I was just mixed up, or if they made him an employee of the show simply for the sake of it?!)

I'd love to watch the show, but I can't stand Walt's is soooo fucking annoying!! It's the only reason why I don't listen to the Tell em Steve Dave podcast.

Just finished episode 2. This is really fun, I do however think without Kevin Smith it wouldn't be as exciting. It's still quite interesting seeing these dudes negotiate prices for comic books and rarities as well as busting on Ming, but what makes it is their 'round table' discussions in between.

The bearded prick is the only low spot on the show. Otherwise the 1st episode was thoroughly entertaining. I'm gonna check out the second episode tonight I think.

That's kinda what I thought as well. I wouldn't normally watch this show, I'm not a big Kevin Smith fan and never listened to his podcasts or anything. It just happened to come on after Walking Dead and I was too lazy to change the channel. (A marketers wet dream!!!) It was pretty entertaining, but the bearded guy is definitely a prick!!!

Digifruitella 02-20-2012 08:28 PM

Yeah, and I wonder if they're running with it just to have that 'dynamic' between him and Ming for instance. Though regardless, they're running into troubles with that already, as with you guys hating on him.

This reminds me of Jackass, how they always picked on that one guy, whose name I dont even know. But you should know what I'm talking about. Lots of pricks on that show as well.

Gilpesh 02-21-2012 07:07 PM

I like the show... Sorta. It's still in that weird "we don't know exactly what the hell really works so far" period of the show.

jaw2929 03-04-2012 02:12 AM

Just watched the second episode of this... I didn't care for the hockey parts, so I just fast forwarded through those. I did like the Light Saber though from Empire Strikes Back, that was pretty fucking cool, as was the old-school Batmobile.

And was it me, or did Jay Mewes look REALLY fucking bad? I've actually met the guy in person a few years back, and he didn't look HALF that bad at the time! He looked and seemed to act like a strung-out junkie! It's really fucking pathetic, actually. Plus, that Ming dude is a gullible and stupid motherfucker.... I'd tell Mewes to go fuck himself, if he (or anyone else) wanted me to fucking pay for all the shit he wanted.... Especially being a probably well or decently paid actor! Ming should've just pulled his pants down and bent over and said "Ok, you can go ahead and fuck me in the ass Jay, since your name is on the store and you've been in movies before!" Whatta fucking disgrace.

If you guys check out the message board on IMDb for this show you'll see Bryan from the show has been pretty active on there recently, he's under the "eugenetesd" moniker.

SkyNet 03-13-2012 05:08 PM

Anone know where I can catch episodes of this online??

For some stupid reason, AMC doesn't have full episodes of this show on their website. I missed episodes 2 and 5 and want to catch up on them.

Digifruitella 04-09-2012 07:38 AM

Good news, season 2 is likely. I'm sure we're also gonna get a much longer second season this time around. I think they were testing the waters.

Here's a post from Bryan the beard guy on the show.

Right now I know as much as anyone else. Less actually, as someone pointed me to today's article about AMC saying CBM exceeded expectations. Kevin spoke to someone at AMC last week and while positive & excited about the show's performance, they hadn't made a decision one way or the other in regard to a 2nd season...or at least didn't tell him.
Everything I've heard leads me to believe a 2nd season is likely, but I've yet to hear anything which would have me betting the farm. I promise if I'm told season two is a lock, I'll be on this board celebrating more fun to come with the faithful & shoving it in the face of all the a-hole naysayers.

SkyNet 04-09-2012 01:16 PM


I loved the show... which was a given considering Tell 'Em Steve Dave is one of my top 2 favorite Podcasts (Along with Doug Loves Movies) and the show is just a live action version of that!

Can't wait to own Season 1 on DVD/ Blu Ray and for Season 2!

Digifruitella 05-09-2012 06:16 PM

hell's yeah!

SkyNet 05-09-2012 06:21 PM

Ya.. i'm stoked as well.. not only for a second season but for a sweet 16 episode season!

If you listen to Tell Em Steve Dave the Podcast, you know that Brian Johnson went away to rehab for an addiction to pain pills, but I think he is back now and I wonder when production will begin on Season 2.

Can't wait

Bourne101 05-09-2012 06:39 PM

That's great! Very fun show.

Digifruitella 10-15-2012 04:39 PM

OMG what a fucking funny episode. I was laughing all the way through. Really love this show. I would have loved for them to keep the 40 minutes, but the new sliced time isn't too bad. Dyanamic, energetic, snappy and works well.

jaw2929 10-16-2012 03:02 AM

I enjoyed last nights show as well... Not the obnoxious crumb crunching fucking rug rats, but everything else was entertaining. Good show indeed!

AspectRatio1986 10-16-2012 02:17 PM

I saw a couple TV spots for this I really wanna give it a try

I thought that bit was funny, reminded me of being a kid - plus the entire situation and how they dealt with it, was pretty hilarious.

Digifruitella 11-05-2012 09:42 PM

Haha, a nice appearance from a certain someone. Man I want this series to never end. So fun.
