This week on Tights and Fights, we’re introducing a new member of the Nation of Conversation: Rachel Evans from the YouTube series “Snarled” and “Afterbuzz TV!”

The team start out by examining what’s going on with Seth Rollins. Now that he’s on the outs with Triple H and The Authority, could it be that he’s finally headed for the face turn that people have been wanting for him?

Plus, you wouldn’t expect an accented Matt Hardy who’s best friends with a dilapidated boat to be the thing that revived TNA in the eyes of many fans… but that’s exactly what happened. The Nation will take a look at what’s making the “Broken” gimmick work and whether or not TNA can count on it to carry the TNA brand.

All of that and a lot more on this weeks episode.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Daniel Radford and Rachel Evans.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

The three count:

Danielle put over Chris Jericho recognizing Kevin Owens as the “longest reigning Universal champion in WWE history.”

Rachel put over the Season 3 of Lucha Underground on El Rey

Hal put over Dean Ambrose’s promo on AJ Styles ahead of their big match up at Backlash.

Ep 65: So, This Monica Lewinsky (S3E18)

| 0 comments

When Picard is re-re-re-body snatched and replaced by an insane impostor, the crew goes through the same routine of misgivings-leading-to-mutiny that they always do. Meanwhile, the real Captain has to escape from space jail with a blue cadet, an ersatz Nausicaan, and a big fan of Australian opera. Who will wind up doing the corny monologue jokes in this episode? Will Wesley let Picard hit on Beverly? Where we gonna poop? It’s the episode where Picard turns the music up to eleven.

#80 - Movies at Home vs At The Theater

We all love movies. With digital media, streaming services, high tech TVs, and the ability to watch anything, anywhere, and at any time, has the theater-going experience gone stale? Mark and Hal weigh the pros and cons of each before emerging with a final decision for ALL.

We're doing a live show in NYC on 10/9 with John Hodgman, John DiMaggio, Doc Hammer, and Jackson Publick, featuring opening act Carter Parton Rogers! Get tickets here.
