Super Nuclear Presents

Remember the cartoons you loved as a kid? Do you, like us, remember mid-2000s Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network with a mix of fondness and terror – or, if you don’t, do you want to know what the fuss was about? Join Mary, David, and Ben as we revisit the cartoons that shaped us in an episode-by-episode deep dive, as well as the Internet fan culture as it was then and is now. How do these nostalgic shows hold up? What do we think of them now, as not kids but sad adults? How has the zeitgeist and Internet following evolved along with us? We set out to answer these questions and also to be incredibly hilarious and physically attractive. We started in 2017 with Return to the Past: A Code Lyoko Retrospective, which ran from 2017-2019 and makes up the first part of this feed. Second was The Ultimate Reprise, which ran from 2019-2020 and covers Oban: Star Racers. Now we’re on The Avatar Recycle, hot on the heels of Avatar: The Last Airbender’s Netflix debut! Join us wheresoever you like. Watching along is not necessary - but highly encouraged – and we try to keep spoiler free up to the current episode!

On this episode, we take a break from racing to follow Stan and Koji (or is it Koji and Stan?) as they bum about trying to collect parts for the Arrow.

Thankfully, Flint and Marcel are there to help, because apparently there's honor in helping the people who beat you beat other people even harder? I dunno man, European sports culture is weird. I mean alien.

===

Join Mary, David, Ben, and our new BFF Gabe, a guest who effortlessly manages to be funnier than the main trio combined (so, exactly like every other guest we've ever had) as we discuss Molly's showdown against Spirit, the spoopy space drow who may or may not have killed her mother.

Also starring: hot pizza opinions, Turbo Teen, David's once-a-podcast tradition of listening every human character from the Avatar (blue people) movie, and Betazoid weddings.

Content warning for a conversation about animal dissection at 1:05:00.

Our journey through the gallery of science-fictiony Tolkien creatures continues with Rush, the space dwarf to the Crogs' space orcs and the Norasians' space elves. Unfortunately, the bit where we rank them all based on sex appeal was cut for time. Instead we reminisce about the Night of the Thwomp and the gamer vs. furry war.

Featuring a special guest: the spider that scared the crap out of Mary right in the middle of our recording. (It's from about 50:00-55:00, starting with a loud shout. Mary was able to catch the spider the next day and release it outside their building!)

Hey, did you hear about this Super Racer guy? They say he has an eight pack, and massive balls of solid granite. At least, according to our good buddy Satis - and did you know the two of them have never been photographed together? Passing strange isn't it.

And if that's not enough silly B.S. for you, let us tell you about the time David officially renamed a character in Yooka-Laylee by complete accident (yes, really), Mary discovered a new species of Molly figurine, and Ben implores his cats to BE NICE. 

===

This episode carries a content warning for discussion of a super sexist concept from 38:00 to 41:00, as well as a super racist concept at 1:28:00.

Join Mary, David, and Ben as they dive into the anemic but nonetheless fascinating world of Oban Star-Racers merch, squabble over the exact meaning of the word 'eboy,' and wonder who the hell wants to smell like something called sandalwood. Meanwhile, join Molly as she dives into a hole from which there is no resurfacing: being hot for aliens.

===

Conflict abounds on this week's Ultimate Reprise as Molly races against the Crog representative, Toros, whose star-racer's spinning trident blades are definitely not for just attracting mates. Meanwhile, Ben shows his true colors by professing a preference for Molly/Aikka, completely rebuking both Jordan and David.

And all three of your hosts have had heart-racing adventures of their own this week. Mary's moved, Ben got hit by a tornado in Dallas, and David's computer has physically fallen apart. But now we're back, and we need someone, anyone, who can tell us what the hell an eboy is.

Content warning for discussion of swastikas from about 43:00-45:00.

This episode was originally published on October 22, 2019. Also, to get the show uploaded in time, TUR will be posting four times a week!

===

Get ready for the most anime-tastic episode of Oban as Molly races a smug robot catgirl who controls her ship by playing DDR. Mary says she sucks, David says she's a lovable rapscallion. Which of us is correct? Tune in and give us YOUR take! (Keep in mind there is only one right answer.)

Join us as well for the long-awaited (by like two people) return of the SNA, Ben and David's time-honored points of contention like Vriska and giant sea isopods, and, just in time for Halloween, the legend of XXX SATAN. Also toilets. Perhaps the scariest thing of all.

May 5, 2020

This episode was originally posted on October 17th, 2019.

===

In this episode, shit gets dark as one character is forced to deal with a debilitating illness and the very real possibility that he'll never again be able to do the thing he loves most. It's handled with tact and care, and it's one of the things that make this show so grown-up for its demographic. There's also a space Olmec that flies around in a giant trombone, because this is still the Disney Channel.

 

This episode of Oban Star Racers carries a content warning for an alien species name that is identical to a UK-specific ableist slur. While we want to believe this wasn’t intentional, we will not use the name aloud on the podcast.

===

Sorry for the delay in getting this one up! Mary's laptop charger died on Monday night, so things were held up for a few days while a new one shipped. x.x

This episode was originally released on October 7th, 2019.

===

If you've been watching Oban Star-Racers and thinking, 'Gee, this show is pretty great, but it could use more children in bar fights,' episode four is here to scratch your itch. Molly and Jordan throw down with Grooor, by this point firmly established as the Yosemite Sam of space. Aikka also gets involved, but only after getting crunk at eight a.m. so he can tolerate being around those dirty poors. At least that's what David says.

Oh, and there's also a race or something.

===

As we said in the episode, you should come join us at our Discord! https://discord.gg/Y7Yxhn9 

Note: David's audio cut out briefly at the beginning of the recording, so we had to wait for him to come back. Sorry about that!

With Rick out of commission, it's time for Molly to fly the Arrow to victory against Grooor! There's just one problem: she is babey.

And Disney's standards and practices won't let her say the f*ck word. Luckily, your humble hosts are unbound by the gripping claw of the Mouse. (If the Disney corporation is interested in purchasing the Super Nuclear Group and our wealth of culture-redefining intellectual properties, please have your people call our people.)

Molly (aka Eva) follows her dad to the planet Alwas, only to realize that, even in the far reaches of space, the patriarchy is alive and well. On the other hand, she also discovers that aliens are surprisingly smoochable!

Will Ben be led astray by the siren song of Molly/Aikka shippery, or stay on the righteous path of Molly/Jordan like Mary and David? (It's the first one. Y'all know him.)

Download this here episode (and leave us a review!) to continue your Oban journey with us -- or you'll be going home by emu. And those feathery rascals are FEISTY.

Hi everyone! Welcome back to getting updates in this feed! We've just finished our latest podcast, The Ultimate Reprise, and while we take a bit of a break and do some renewing of our public profile a bit, we will be posting our episodes of The Ultimate Reprise to the RTTP feed! New episodes will go live on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays leading up to the premiere of our yet to be announced new show, which will also be posted to this feed.

Thank you all so much for joining us on this journey, and have fun listening to TUR if you haven't already, and stay tuned for more updates as things move forward!

Sep 10, 2019

Welcome, friends old and new, to the first episode of The Ultimate Reprise: Earth's only podcast about Oban Star Racers!

Cool, angsty teen Eva Wei ditches school to go hang out with her dad (as cool teens are wont to do). Little does she realize that she, like you, is on the cusp of a Franime space adventure.

Join the Super Nuclear group (Mary, David, and Ben, for those of you who didn't spend the last three years hearing us babble about Code Lyoko) as they continue to race through the Dubya years, one semi-obscure French cartoon at a time. Now with more uncensored swears!

As I say in the intro here, this will be the last post (for now) in the Return to the Past feed. You can follow the rest of the series at theultimatereprise.com/rss ! Also note that we have changed our twitter handle to @super_nuclear.

The Ultimate Reprise trailer is HERE! The first episode of The Ultimate Reprise will be our last post in this feed (for now). Our new site/RSS feed is http://theultimatereprise.libsyn.com/rss - go ahead and subscribe for more! We have are currently being considered for Apple Podcasts/Google Play listing approval; you can find it there soon.

We have also changed our Twitter handle - see below!

If you've never seen Oban Star Racers, you should. We're not mincing words or hiding our peer pressure. If you love cartoons, if exquisite animation and cool ships and aliens and tightly crafted plotting and emotional drama are everything you could ever want out of your cartoons, you owe it to yourself to absorb this series - and ours, since that's what we're doing.

And if you have seen it? FANTASTIC. Here's a good reason to watch it again.

From the creative voices/loudmouths behind Return to the Past: A Code Lyoko Retrospective comes - that's right - a full second recap/rewatch podcast about a French animated cartoon from the early-mid 2000s co-created by Thomas Romain. Join Mary and David as they revisit and share a show that is incredibly powerful and special to them, and Ben as he watches it for pretty much the first time!

You can watch along with us through the Oban: Star Racers DVDs, or purchase the digital copies on Youtube or Amazon.

Our first episode drops Monday, September 9th!

Hello everyone! As promised, here is Ben's reading of a story David and Mary wrote together! It was prompted by the "Collaboration" episode of the podcast Start With This by Night Vale Presents, which you can find on your podcast app or at this address: http://www.nightvalepresents.com/startwiththis 

The story was derived from @dril's Skeleton War tweet, which you can find here: https://twitter.com/dril/status/361282749086175234

Tune in later this week for The Ultimate Reprise's trailer!

Welp, here we are at the end. When we started Return to the Past two years ago, we were just three unsuccessful dorks; now, thanks to you, we're three unsuccessful dorks with a podcast about Code Lyoko. Join us for one last conversation about ol' CL, and stand by for the credits and a special announcement about the future!

===

Stay tuned for a few more special features to come in this feed! Including a trailer for our new Oban Star Racers podcast, The Ultimate Reprise, the first episode of which will go live on September 9th, 2019.

Also, we had to do a few pickup recordings for this episode, so apologies if there are any choppy cuts! We tried to make it as natural as possible. And again thank you, thank you so much.

Here it is: the final battle. The big enchilada. Ninety-four episodes of cartoon nonsense, all leading up to this. William is back on Earth, Xana is on the ropes, Ulrich and Yumi are... still making room for the Holy Spirit. What do our three very tired hosts make of it? Tune in to find out!

Well, we mostly exposit on the crucial difference between catboys and boys who are cats. But we also give in to a serious case of the Feels. Join us for our penultimate episode!

You said you wanted plot? Well, here's some plot! Here's all the plot! Here's three seasons' worth of plot, all in twenty-two minutes! Eat it up, little piggies! There's one and a half episodes left and we are limping right the hell to that barn!

If you, like many an OG Code Lyoko fan, wonder when and how the show would resolve the plot threads pertaining to Xana, William, and Clone William, the answers are 'right now' and 'poorly.' Join Mary, David, and Ben as they press F for the sweetest fake boy in the world. And also talk about insect sex. (Yeah, we know what you're really here for.)

Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck, or many duck-sized horses? These and other brain busters will be grappled with on this episode of Return to the Past, as our very tired hosts do whatever it takes to avoid recapping yet another clunker. At least this one has spooky Soviet experiments in it. Just in time for Stranger Things season 3.

This episode of Return to the Past carries a content warning for descriptions of gore/viscera at 44:30.

It's been over ninety episodes of this Lyoko crap. How about we pivot to Evangelion instead? That's hot and trendy again, right? And, really, is there anything more fun than listening to young white people share their brave yet controversial opinions about anime? Join us for ten minutes of that, followed by a long groan of an episode of a far inferior thing that isn't even a real anime.

Also featured: Ben pokes gentle fun at his goofball of a stepfather and makes lascivious comments about cartoon characters again, David tells the surprising but true story of the time some jackass filed a complaint with his employer because of a disagreement about Rick and Morty, and Mary laughs for 40 seconds straight at a dancing Ukranian man.

Also, we'll need your help for two upcoming projects! We'd like to assemble a "clip show" of show moments for Echoes, and a collection of listener messages (written or recorded, your choice) for our final season break/postmortem. If you would like to contribute to either, please let us know at rttppodcast@gmail.com !

This Code Lyoko episode carries a content warning for jokes about and imagery reminiscent of suicide. This episode of Return to the Past carries a content warning for discussion of this scene starting at 1:22:00.

In this episode, we decided to cover a dying industry, kept barely alive by a small handful of unattractive white men who fear competent women and throw a tantrum whenever they see a brown person. Unfortunately, our episode on the Republican party wasn't finished on time, so instead, let's talk about comic books! Excelsior!

That's right: Code Lyoko once had a comic book series, canceled after three issues when it became apparent that nobody gave a sh*t. EXCEPT FOR US! Join us as we discuss bee golems, quote-unquote "groupies", the latest in jock lingo, and more four-color funnybook hilarity!

We continue or coverage of Code Lyoko as it squeezes out its last few squeaky, underwhelming farts. This week, twenty-one minutes and thirty seconds of nothing in particular followed by one of the biggest revelations in the show's history. And by 'biggest revelations' we mean 'A thing that definitely happened.'

Also: Mary, David, and Ben investigate whatever happened to the Numa Numa Guy (spoiler: nothing much), Ben and David make Futurama references that confuse and delight Mary, and and Ben betrays his people by exhibiting knowledge of sports.

In 'Music to Soothe the Savage Beast,' there is no savage beast unless you count Sissi and William, and music certainly does not soothe them. But, despite its woefully inaccurate title, this used to be David's favorite episode of Code Lyoko! Does it hold up? Let's find out!

Join us as we geek out over Aerosmooth, make fun of a man's name like so many common middle school bullies, and surf on these vibes to a brave new world OH GOD WE'RE SORRY we feel awful just typing that.
