Battlecast presented by Meltdown Comics

4 (Andy) vs. 3 (Dan) vs. 2 (James)

You know the rules, people. Each of our winning characters from throughout Season 3 are back as our respective champions. Andy's team of four includes Gob BLuth, Mr. Burns, Viewtiful Joe, and half the cast of Top Gear. Dan's three-man squad is Piccolo, Darth Vader, and Blossom and Buttercup of the Powerpuff Girls. Lastly, James pitiful twosome is Zach Morris and Nathan Drake. To the winner goes the spoils! Meaning the Katana Trophy and a spoonful of pride.

Warning: James paints a lovely picture of heaven.

Record after last episode... James 2-4, Andy 4-2, Dan 3-3.

We welcome back our favorite guest (and much needed relief from James's bullshit) Jimmy Callaway! He tries on his ajudicating hat for this episode which takes place in Ghostbusters HQ. It's Bruce Lee's trainer Ip Man (Andy) vs. Piccolo (Dan) in a martial arts showdown with ghosts and ghouls and possibly a Spirit Bomb that takes 6 weeks to occur. Also get on Netflix and watch Ip Man if you haven't. Super good.

Warning: Did Andy imply he'd use Slimer's slime as lube?

Darth Vader (Dan) vs. Lord Xenu (James) at F-1's Monaco
Everything you wanted to know about Scientology but were afraid to ask. It's a war between two intergalactic over-lords: Darth Vader, and the enigmatic Lord Xenu. They hop in some F1 cars and race around the multi-zillion dollar Monaco Track. There's Sarlaccs and Giant Spiders, and even some F1 people you've never heard of. It's Battlecast.

Warning: Don't sue us please.

Gob Bluth (Andy) vs. Kevin Smith (James) at NPR
Holy friggin' moly, strap in for the longest, most dramatic, action packed episode of Battlecast yet. It's Arrested Development's Master Illusionist, Gob Bluth, battling multi-talented media maven, Kevin Smith, through the NPR airwaves. You'll see some familiar faces and some not so much. On top of all of this madness, rapper/comedian/writer for Epic Rap Battles of History... ZACH SHERWIN features as a guest cameo. Oh so much fun.

Warning: Yes, "stupider" is a word. And no, James doesn't know how to rules.

Enter Battlecast....half stupid podcast and half humanitarian super-being. Oh yeah, and we make fun of Popes.

 Wyle E. Coyote (Dan) vs. Zack Morris (James) Downton Abbey.

This week, two icons of your childhood go head to head in a castle from a show that only pretentious jerks appreciate. Kidding. Downton Abbey is probably fine. Probably. Will it be the coyote with the entire catalogue of Acme products at his clawed fingertips or the upper class high-school enigma with the inexplicable power to stop time? Who knows....? Not you obviously.

Warning: Poor Dan.
