So, Spoilerites, what about Major Spoilers makes you smile?

    Ma-jor Spoi-lers Theme Song! Do-do-doo, de-doo, de-doo….

    All the music really, James Kennison’s song and the old “Stop talking about comic books or I’ll kill you” one are great too, but that falsetto puts a grin on my face every time I hear it. When I’m not joining in, anyway.

    I think an easier list would be “When does Major Spoilers NOT make me smile.” I think the top spot goes to when you all passive-aggressively insult each other.

    My girlfriend who listens with me says “When Matthew goes into nerd rage it makes me laugh. And then he says something cute about his daughter, and it makes me smile. MOAR BEANWORLD!”

      But that is how you know we love each other… and in all honesty, most the time it is us just goofing around… Matthew and I have known each other for so long, we know when to hold ’em and when to fold ’em – or in Matthew’s case, pick on Stephen for being bald, or fat, or old, or fill in the blank :)

        “But that is how you know we love each other”

        And that is why it makes me smile. Keep it up!

    “IT’S TIME!!!” that part doesn’t get old, and other obscure pro wrestling references

    What made me smile in a happy-kind-of-sad-way was when i reheard the “Everyone was naked all the time” episode of CH, and we learn that Torq sleeps on the floor curled up as a kitten….
    Soo sad, soo sweed.

    The differing and fascinating backgrounds you have all come from, yet here you are expressing your love of various forms of pop culture. From comics and movies, to D&D and pro wrestling, you are not afraid to tell us why you did or did not like these various and sundry works of entertainment. I thank you for your weekly contributions to said pop culture, and hope to hear content for as long as you are able to provide it.

    The Saturday theme song. It never fails. Also, the quality of the commenters on the site. If I see the same story on another site first, and I have something to say, I save it for Major Spoilers. Cause I know that’s where it’ll matter. (at least a little.)

    The fact that you all seem to have rockin’ good fun, even when we know, via Rodrigo’s twitter account, that a large part of a recording session had to be redone! :) Moreover, it seems like me and some of my friends goofing around and shooting pop culture references, but actually with pop culture! :)

    Anytime the adult tag is questioned by Matthew, and it isnt approved or remembered by Stephen. We then get some toned down version of a expletive.

      I remember the first time I laughed out loud at Major Spoilers, when they were saying stuff like “G-D it!” But lettering the wrong word, like, H. Fuck or sommat. It made me laugh so hard.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
