In episode 26 of the Man of Screen podcast, Bob Fisher will join Mike Zummo for what appears to be a fishing trip gone wrong.

Perry White and Jimmy Olsen decide to park for the night at the Hotel Bayou, which Perry remembers to be a “fine hotel.” But things are far from fine as Jimmy and the chief encounter the dead owner’s nephew, a mysterious colonel, and a crazy cackling woman? What about the ghost that continues to haunt the place?

Who you gonna call? SU-PER-MAN!!!!

Then find out what the dead hotel owner has in common with a former Golden Age newspaper editor as we encounter “The Evil Three.”

Then it’s off to Chinatown for an unveiling as Lu Sung plans to donate the invaluable Quan Yin Jade to the U.S. as a show of appreciation for what the country has done for him and his family. But others would rather see the statue stolen and sold.

Who’s involved? Why is Henderson so upset with Clark in this episode and above all who is the guy in the circus suit?

Find out as Clark Kent and Inspector Henderson answer “The Riddle of the Chinese Jade.”

In episode 6 of The Man of Screen Extra, Mike Zummo completes his four-part miniseries on the DCEU movies with a look at the latest release, “Suicide Squad.”

Did Mike love it? Hate it? Kind of like it? Did it bring the crazy like he expected? Well, you’ll just have to listen to the episode to find out as Mike introduces you to the characters, treats you to a synopsis, and then gives a detailed rambling on his thoughts on the film. AND his thoughts about how important Superman is to the DCEU.

Detailed rambling because Mike recorded this episode without taking a word of notes.

PODCASTER GENERAL WARNING: This episode contains SPOILERS for “Suicide Squad”.

In episode 25 of the Man of Screen podcast, it’s time for a mix of science fiction and voodoo as Mike takes you through the next two episodes of The Adventures of Superman.

Meet Horatio Hinkle, Daily Planet rural correspondent, eccentric inventor, and the guy the Daily Planet staff desperately wishes would stop talking. And then meet his robot hero, which walks around about as well as you would expect a man in a metal suit to do so. Find out what the eccentric nerd does to get past his guard Jimmy Olsen? And did Mike really compare him to Batman? What is going on here?

Plus you’re not going to want to miss what really burns Inspector Henderson’s butt about “The Runaway Robot.”

And then it’s off to the jungles of Haiti as we search for Perry White’s sister and Jimmy Olsen, who disappeared while investigating a citadel. Who is this mysterious voodoo witch doctor and what are the jungle drums really telling us? And what does Clark do to keep the Haitian government officials in a state of confusion.

And can you believe that voodoo drum language is not offered at Harvards?

So grab your percussion-English dictionary as Mike deciphers the “Drums of Death”.

In episode 24 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo will be on his own for a look at the next two episodes of The Adventures of Superman, one featuring an ex-Nazi war criminal and some duality, and then it’s on to the wax museum to find the next death sculpture.

Find out what happens when Jimmy is approached by a strange woman who asks him to hand a package to a pair of ambulance drivers. Find out what happens when he’s taken to the doctor and how exactly did Clark get to Germany and back so fast? Inspector Henderson might have an idea.

Plus, what is it about Superman that makes him look as pretty as a moviestar to Jimmy Olsen?

But between a man disguising himself as a woman and a pair of identical twins, Superman will certainly find himself up against some “Double Trouble.”

Then, things take a turn for the creepy as Madame Selena is making wax sculptures and her subjects are meeting an untimely end. Which Daily Planet member is marked for death and what exactly are Madame Selena’s motives in this deadly game?  Plus, you won’t want to miss her Hall of Death.

Find out who gets waxed and you won’t want to miss Madame Selena’s insane cackle. It will give you goose bumps.

So, follow the Daily Planet crew as they attempt to solve the “Mystery in Wax.”

On this fifth episode of Man of Screen Extra, Mike Zummo takes a detour from his DCEU miniseries, but not really that much of a detour. Considering the content, though, this just makes it a four-part miniseries instead of a three-parter.

This time, Mike will be joined by Scott McGregor of the Two True Freaks Podcast Network to chat about some of the DC film and TV offerings displayed at San Diego Comic Con in late July. They’ll discuss the trailers for “Justice League”, “Wonder Woman” and “Suicide Squad.” Listen as Mike and Scott make Internet history showing two people who have different opinions of Batman v. Superman can have a civil conversation and find areas to agree upon.

And then, they’ll transition to the small screen as they’ll sift through the offerings from “The Flash”, “Arrow” and “Legends of Tomorrow.” But no “Supergirl”? Very little as the show hadn’t started production since moving its sets to Vancouver from Los Angeles.

So, sit back or do whatever it is you do while listening to podcasts and let Mike and Scott tell you what they think of the DC film and TV comic con footage.

In episode 23 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo and Bob Fisher will dissect what could be the best episode of “The Adventures of Superman.”

Find out what kind of trouble is caused when a second-story man basically stumbles into Clark Kent’s apartment and stumbles upon the Holy Grail. Meet Candy – no, not the prostitute from “Highlander” – Clark Kent’s private detective friend, who is called in to help find the thief, but not find the item.

So come along, experience the panic, suspense and the outright confusion as Clark Kent tries to track down “The Stolen Costume”. And when it’s over, tell us what you think of that ending.

Then for a change of pace, it’s off to the Peruvian desert for a treasure hunt. Experience Lois’ exasperation at Clark’s attempt to “help” her with her story and make sure you don’t sign up for Jimmy Olsen’s foreign language course – Crummy Spanish 101 – but it could help you when you visit a crummy hotel.

Experience the first Lois and Jimmy adventure of the series as they get caught up in the search for “The Treasure of the Incas.”

Come with Mike as he takes a look at the changes this new version brings to the film. What story lines are added? Is anything made clearer. What was …. CUT OUT?

Mike will take you on a scene-by-scene analysis. Find out why you should always wear a shirt while cooking and come check out how one small change to a seemingly insignificant scene can change an entire film.

Now if all that wasn’t enough, Rebecca Johnson stops by to discuss what she thought of the film’s Ultimate Cut. Find out how the person who saw the film 15 times in the theater feels about a completely new version of the film. Did she love it? Hate it? Somewhere in between?

Find out.

First, Perry White brings in an expert to expose some injuries in the wrestling industry. Clark checks out Bad News Brannigan’s hands and Superman appears as a genie to an Indian swami. But the most important question becomes this. What does Clark do that makes Lois never want to see him again for as long as she lives.

Then, it’s on to Cliffton as Lois can’t get ahold of her former nurse to thank her for sending a gift. So what do Lois and Clark do? They drive out to investigate.

In episode 20 of the Man of Screen podcast Mike is on his own to cover two episodes of the Adventures of Superman.

In the first episode, you’ll find out what happens when a little girl with a bad leg accidentally hears a crook murdered on the other end of phone line.
