The Demented Podcast #30 - Battle Royale 3.

Here y'all go! I'm giving you the episode a week early. Happy Holidays to all. Anyway, this is the Battle Royale, where the Top 5 (available) Tower players of the season compete for ultimate glory. The BRs are always a blast to record, despite taking a while. For instance, this particular episode took about 2 hours and 15 minutes to get through, and I was able to cut it down quite a bit. Don't worry, you're not missing much from what I cut. Anyway, we have Joel, Dan, Dylan, Kai, and Jason. Can Joel keep his King of the Tower? Or will Dan show who's really the boss? But watch out for Dylan--he's a great player himself. Can Kai make it past the first round this time? Or will Jason, the underdog, prove that he has what it takes? Listen to find out!

  1. Great show to listen to even though I was a nerv wreck when recording it.

    I also have to say that this round felt a lot more like it does when I usually listen in other peoples episodes than the my last episode with the perfect set of questions. So I guess its evened out now.

    Thanks for hosting such a great Podcast game Nick and Steve!!! As I see it its one of a kind!

    God Jul och Gott Nytt År!!!

  2. The show was a lot of fun to record and also a great listen. Nice job with the editing. It sounded like we moved at a brisk pace!

    So when can I return for a Demented Podcast: Redemption Island season?

  3. I gotta call BS on that bonus question. According to IMDb (the movie bible afterall) Prowse and Jones are NEVER credited as Anakin, but just Darth Vadar. The question did include the "aka Darth Vader" addition, but I still think it's a cheat or at least left open to interpretation, imo. Now if IMDb credited them as Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker, that'd be different, but it doesn't.

  4. I like the way Rachel thinks on this one. I demand a new question!

  5. Thanks, Dan!

    I really didn't intend to sound so bitchy and know-it-all, but I just see Anakin and Vadar as two completely separate characters and was thrown by the answer being "True".

  6. le sigh.

    I'm talking to Steve about it.

  7. To be honest I'm totally fair with Dan being crowned Battle Royal champion this time around. He was definitively in shape this evening.

    I played awfully tactics wise and its amazing I got as far as I did (mostly thanks to my qualification score).

    I don't know if it helps but I would have answered true to the final question if I'd been on the spot. But then I didn't think on it like Rachel did.

  8. However, with that said I'm still open for a new final question challenge between me and Dan to settle it if theres any confusion about it. =)

  9. Sorry guys, I didn't mean to start a revolt, and honestly I would've gotten the answer wrong, because I thought Prowse and Shaw were one and the same.

  10. Well, I'd still like to call bullshit on my gawdawful "help." :P I certainly sucked, but when you consider all I'd learned and that thing still didn't help a lick...yes, I'm still bitter and a sore loser. :D

  11. I take no responsibility for the hint, Dylan.

  12. I know it's late, but I just finished listening to the whole show.

    Now, you said "credited," Nick, so you're in the clear, cause when I was listening, there was a 6th actor I thought of that played Anakin/Vader....the guy that was in the Vader suit for Revenge of the Sith. I was pretty sure it wasn't Prowse due to his age, and I was right. HOWEVER...the guy wasn't credited! Poor sap's name is Gene Bryant.

  13. I actually re-did the BR with a new bonus question the other day with the guys. The results will be available at the beginning of the next episode.
