Rider Break! Episode 08: There's A New Sheriff In Town

Rider Break! returns (again) as Igadevil checks out the new Space Sheriff Gavan movie. But only because Date is in it, I swear.

Warning! There be spoilers ahead.

This episode was originally released on 10/21/2012

In This Episode: 

• It's a review of Space Sheriff Gavan: THE MOVIE by someone who confesses to be little more than a "casual fan" of the source material. What do you think is going to happen?

• I do my best to tell you what I think of the new Gavan movie for about half an hour, then basically give up because I run out of ways to say "I liked it" and "this was cool".

• Rider Break! completely fails this week because it's about a show that isn't Kamen Rider.

Episodes Notes:

• Music used includes:

A bunch of stuff that isn't Kamen Rider. Buy the soundtrack!

• This is the first episode of Rider Break! in over a month, though it won't be the last. It also won't be the last time I talk about a just-released movie, though I promise next week will be slightly more interesting in that it's about a franchise I have stronger feelings about. As promised, following that (episode 10, finally) will be back to the standard topics of Kamen Rider, Kamen Rider and more Kamen Rider.

• I joke, but I did try to squeeze in as many Kamen Rider references as I could despite talking about something outside my usual comfort zone.

• After recording this, I went online to see what others were saying about the movie on Japanese sites. Sure enough, it's getting one helluva a mixed reaction! That's what I mean about "wondering what the hardcore Metal Hero fans will think". I still enjoyed it, but at the end of the day I'll freely admit I'm not the target audience on this one (and even less so than usual.)


00:00 - Speaker-blowing, eardrum-destroying fun commences!
01:24 - Actual talking starts
39:35 - "As always"? What was I thinking?
40:06 - Shortest. Episode. Ever!

• As always, let me know what topics you'd like to hear in future episodes, and I'll put them on the roster!

• Thanks for listening!
