Tights and Fights Ep. 156: TakeOver: Toronto and SummerSlam


This week, Hal Danielle and Lindsey discuss one of the busiest weeks of wrestling in recent memory.

Despite all of the solid wrestling across WWE’s shows, one character has captured the imagination of people more than anything else: Bray Wyatt as The Fiend. From the entrance to the music to his destruction of Finn Balor, the character is bars. We’ll break down what makes it work.

Plus, WWE managed to recapture some goodwill after another solid TakeOver, having Seth Rollins pin Brock Lesnar clean and showcasing the return of Sasha Banks as Becky Lynch’s presumed next challenger.

But of course, that’s just on the WWE side of things. This weekend also had the culmination of the G1 Climax in New Japan. As we had hoped, Kota Ibushi has finally reached the summit, defeating Jay White in the finale. Does this mean he’ll further fulfill our hopes by becoming the IWGP champion at Wrestle Kingdom?

Hosted by Hal Lublin and Danielle Radford, and Lindsey Kelk.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

Judge John Hodgman Episode 55: Battle Royale


Rachel and Leeman are American citizens who moved to Canada for school and work. Having lived in Toronto for some time now, the couple have planted their roots in Canadian soil and plan to make the city their home for the foreseeable future. They've already become permanent Canadian residents, and enjoy the primary benefits of being Canadian (universal health care, foremost). Rachel believes they should go all the way and become citizens so that they may vote, run for office, and fully commit to life in the Great White North. Leeman takes issue with the Canadian Oath of Citizenship, however, particularly the idea of pledging allegiance to the British monarchy.

Should they stand on guard for thee united as a family, or is Leeman correct in rebelling against the crown? In this royal rumble, only one man can decide!

The AV Club from The Toronto Film Festival on The Sound of Young America

Noel Murray
Scott Tobias

Noel Murray and Scott Tobias of The AV Club share their picks from the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival. They discuss Sylvain Chomet's The Illusionist, which is animated from a script by Jacques Tati. Also: Darren Aronofsky's latest, Black Swan, which stars Natalie Portman as a ballerina struggling to find the passion to play the Black Swan in Swan Lake. In The Trip, director Michael Winterbottom supervises an impression-off between British comics Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon.

They also say they had a number of disappointments at the festival, including It's Kind of a Funny Story (despite a great turn from Zach Galifianakis) and Danny Boyle's latest, 127 Hours. They also didn't like the seriocomic Will Ferrel vehicle Everything Must Go.

Noel and Scott joined us from CIUT in Toronto - our thanks to the station and to Chris Berube, who engineered our session.
