Should we clap?
Okay. Honestly, we don't need to like
no, I think we should we do need to.
We asked to we actually don't
we do though,
like, for the ritual?
Sure. Sorry, I got distracted by the fact that the quote today at the bottom of time.is is music can change the world because it can change people that's Bono.
Yeah man that are our greatest world treasure on on World Music Today on Earth.
Today I was talking about Bono
like literally an hour ago. An hour and a half. And um and I was trying to remember the name of edge the other guy that people know the name of sure and level with you and this is not a bit
I believe it's the edge but go on
note. I'm glad you said that. Because what I said was it was that other guy the sword Yes, it's Bono and the sword
and it's still funny.
Bono And the sword is it Is like a good like a band that plays like, but only like Battle of the Bands and they're the oldest band entered and they just hit up every single one.
If you want to avoid copyright, you could also just be Nobo and the sword.
It's the sequel to Ricky and the flash. If you've heard of that movie
Flash Gordon and the Flash
Josie and the Pussycats
Um, the Brian Setzer Orchestra. Should have been called 'Brian Setzer and the Orchestra' right?
The Trans Brian Setzer orchestra just like the Transsiberian one.
Uh huh. Bachman Turner Overdrive, et cetera.
I think that's ours. Right? We did that.
I'm pretty sure it was you
Yeah, it was your it was your guys's fault. I'm pretty sure that was us. It was Bachman Turner, overdrive and rush I think.
Yeah. Rush is us for sure. Yeah. Yeah. What do you got a problem with Rush?
No, I'm happy about it.
What do you got a problem with the hit song y y Zed from the hit video game? 2002. Nope. Guitar Hero two. I don't know why it's the 2002. That's just not at all what I was trying to say.
As a as a Canadian band I, I guess it would have to be y y Zed not y y Z
That's just how you say that letter. But we don't have to talk about it.
That's weird. That's how you say that letter.
It's not weird. Actually, it would clear a lot of misc like miscommunications up if we just adopted Zed.
But is there a lot of miscommunication going on?
Like, Z sounds a lot like C, right?
Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, sometimes Z sounds better. Like when It's very contextually here or there.
Zed doesn't sound like any other letter in the alphabet. None of the ones that I know about anyway.
Yeah like DoubleQ
(laughing) I'm trying to I want to minimize edits.
Yeah, good luck.
I gotta get this out, like tomorrow.
Yeah, it'll be fine.
Alright, 10 seconds.
98789 I clapped Did you?
I did. It was really not, it was a wimpy little clap. I can see it though. We're fine.
Hey, I'm gonna start the podcast now.
Cool. What's up,
Neal? Guess what time it is.
It doesn't matter what time it is because of the longest day of the year. You've got all the time in the world. Oh, it's late, but the sun is still up. And with that time, we're going to do some Mortal Kombat conquest commentary on the MK pod quest. Summer Solstice. Spectacular. That's right gamers. We're going to be going till the sun goes down and the moon has come up and long ago somebody left with my cup. I had it full of water to hydrate during the podcast. It's not here anymore. All I have is the podcast until the sun goes down. And then legally we have to end it or we will be killed. Those are the summer solstice spectacular rules. I'm sorry, Neil. I know you're just learning this now that your life is on the line.
It's a lot. This is a lot to learn in a very exciting way.
But the sun has gone down the moon will come up. We may be killed and too long ago. Somebody left with my cup.
Doesn't matter, man. We're going the distance.
We're going for speed racer.
We are absolutely watching Speed Racer for the show. I'm gonna force you
Spoilers for future episodes of this show
you never agreed you never acknowledged it so I'm putting it on air. This is going out to our whole audience.
I acknowledged it What do you mean I didn't acknowledge it?
Maybe I just missed it. I resent that. All right,I'm not looking it up. I believe you. I'm sorry for doubting you. longest day of the year.
Yeah, more like the longest day of my life
if I ever go we're doing a commentary. Not just any commentary. Mortal Kombat conquest episode nine. Quan Chi Yeah, baby
can you hit every sound effect at once?
I can try *cacaphony of SFX*
(laughing) big day Longest Day best episode of Conquest
(laughing) the 'big theory boys' with the sexy music. I can't wait to hear that ithout Discord Clipping
I didn't think it was gonna work. I thought you hit one it the other one off. That was a pleasant surprise
We've entered a new frontier welcome to this podcast strange new worlds.
It's for now for the rest of the episode. If I feel the need to hit a sound cue. I'm just going to slap the whole pad with my hand and see what happens
"If I feel the need." Yeah, okay.
I've been slacking on them lately. Honestly. Like part of it is my setup. The buttons are further away because I needed more desk space. It doesn't we're not going to get into that here. I'll tell you about it another time. For now. I'm really tired. Let's watch some Mortal Kombat conquest.
I think we should do that. Yeah.
I'm so excited. I'm excited to watch this one again.
Yeah it's, I feel like people might not remember just what that was like. The first time
God it has, this episode has everything. Although Vorpax and Shang Tsung are not in it at all. So I guess it has almost everything.
Yeah, they did kind of fuck up not having like all the stuff you like in it?
Well you like Vorpax also.
Yeah but like, you know, I'm just sort of you said it so
I'm speaking as if I'm Neal
Gotcha this is very
You're Ne, famously you're Neal actually
This is confusing.
Well, it is the solstice.
Yeah, man. Everything's backwards.
This is the longest Neal of the year
We're in the upside down I think. Stranger Things is popular. Let's get to hear about this. SEO I've only seen the first season
search engine. Oh
fuck I- remember the countdown everybody. Three to one fight you hit you hit play on fight. All right. Are we all strapped in the audience ready to go Cory?
(tiny voice) Yeah.
Don't do it again. Round 9. We're jumping into it Round 9, 321 fight. Yeah, man.
You guys got to try this cake.
This is where we, I think first really hung out at Zhu Zin Applebee's, isn't it?
Zhu Zinplebee's. I have a credit.
I'm hitting on the waiterrrr
I have a credit for the waitress. Magda played by Dorian John. Okay, Dorian John is an actress known for Mortal Kombat conquest. These are her only two credits. She was in two of these.
Dorian John is an actress known for Mortal Kombat conquest. These are her only two credits. She was in two of these.
You know, you were always pretty polite
Yeah. Siro famously extremely polite. Also, I know you're trying to limit edits when I'm hearing like an echo of your track.
It should be gone now.
Oh, is it?
well, I was hearing it
No, I know. I didn't have the fader all the way down. That's my bad. We're leaving it in.
How many times, so Kung Lao was just like, they're just like, hey, they're gonna kill this random lady. And he's, he's not at the point yet in his life, where he has any skepticism towards that at all.
He's gonna get baited no less than twice in this episode. By a woman in peril. Like I honestly like props to him to continuously be like, but what if this time it's not a trap? I really need to save people.
Did he just take food while he was leaving?
Well he ordered that rum cake. It's like they don't have to go boxes. It's an Applebee's. Just like real Applevees
Everybody's favorite Mortal Kombat character, Cassie
played by Beth McKenzie. She has two film credits Cassie and Mortal Kombat conquest and Jamie Davis in where evil lies.
I can't believe she just sold the last of the roses before Taja could buy them.
Alright quiet Jamie Presley's on screen, All right?
Oh, what are we not talking through? That's gonna be a quiet episode
She's on screen a lot. Jamie Pressly is here and Dana Hee. As Mika and Siann
Jamie Pressly, arguably the most famous person we've encountered to date.
I don't know if Eva Mendez- to date for sure. I dont know if Eva Mendes surpasses-
I think Eva Mendes has cleared Jaime Pressly.
She had her moment for sure. But she was not star of a sitcom opposite Anna, Ana Faris for 90 years. But she was in 2 fast 2 furious.
Yeah, who among us wasn't in 2 Fast 2 furious?
fresh off her starring role in poison ivy the new seduction.
I like how Kung Lao was looking around like, Wait, hold on. Is this a fight? Are we fighting? Like he doesn't even look like he knows what's happening yet.
royally fucked up to that they just broke a woman's neck. Like,
that's a Mortal Kombat. Baby.
That's a fatality. We haven't been doing a good job keeping track of fatalities on these commentaries. Let me see. Well, we have not pulled that note up now.
"...befell three strangers" Smoke, Kung Lao. Can you imagine if I did that every time?
You should do it every time we'll get
I'm gonna do what I want to do it from the beginning.
We might get a cease and desist. All right.
I don't think anybody's watching for that.
I have a note in my like collection of notes for this podcast that just says one apple. Just says one apple.
Yeah, we were counting apples.
And now I can't find my note where I was actually counting everything. We should just start the commentary over on this.
I don't think so. I don't think that's true or correct. Looking through notes, this is this is live radio, baby. It's the fucking Solstice baby. The sun is still up.
Finally we have Renee Tenison as Sora keeper of the Keyblade Of course.
Yeah, Renee Tenison, I said it right this time. Adoni Maropis.
Friend of the show, Adoni Maropis.
The man who told me I said her name wrong. First time we did this episode. God, that's almost straight from the source. Right?
Yeah, we're and we're working hard to do better. Just sort of generally.
had Renee Tenison herself reached out that would be the only way it would be more embarrassing.
Yeah. Anyway, this fight is good.
It's very good. Dana Hee, of course does stunts. In most episodes of conquest. She's an all star. Bam. Kung Lao jump split kick.
I believe the way that's edited because it looks like his feet hit at different times.
Yeah. He's just got that much control.
We should probably count Kung Lao jump flip kicks. I'm gonna assume there's 22 of them.
16 per half episode. You do the math?
Sure. Yeah. Where's that...
Anyway, Why do they have these funny little masquerade masks on? This is like worse than a Batman? I guess Batman's is pretty good, because he's like, got a whole suit on. What's a superhero with a bad disguise? One of those? Green lantern Ryan Reynolds version.
Kato from Green Hornet and also Green Hornet from Green Hornet.
Nobody knows who Kato is.
Kato. (typing) woman in alley killed by Siann, I think we're at 20 fatalities. 12 confirmed apples and two broken tables. At least.
We got a knife out.
And that is our seventh knife. BAM! Hell yeah. Taja kicker in the FACW
really just waited a long time. Taja and Siro are all lit like they're completely different sets. Oh, they are for Tasha. It looks like in the middle of the day.
I think the background I think they just took a shot of her in a fight post from inside the trading posts like the background had matchup at all.
She's dead. Why?
Well they snapped her neck earlier
Yeah, I'll check her pulse. Oh, her neck is separated from her body. I think we're 20 fatalities.
I don't believe that you had no idea it was him. Who else is? I mean, it's Zhu Zin, shits rough and rowdy and wacky and wild, man, but like there's no way you didn't know it was him.
Yeah. It was just oh man. Quan Chi is fortress. Look, Speak of the devil. Holy shit. That's Quan Chi his first line that's, uh, that really sets his character doesn't
Quan Chi 15:11
want to see clearly to remind me of what...
What a fucking reveal they don't even wait. No, but it's like, here's his whole outfit. Here's his whole book.
Here's the best costume in the show. The best makeup in the show. Best Performance in the show. I'm gonna say it. Like,
dude, he's sick as hell, man. Yeah,
he rules. Shout out to Adoni
Quan Chi 15:35
Still so silent in my presence.
I recently watched the Mortal Kombat mythologies Sub-Zero Like
already, like already, he's just like, he's more committed than like, anyone. Anybody has been up to this point
in the history of all acting ever.
Dude, it's so sick. Thank you, Steve Hattman for writing these incredible lines.
Hell yeah. He um, you know, Jeff Meek really gunning for him in his Shao Kahn performance, but uh, and of course silk Manning is just natural charisma.
That must be Tajaaa. It's like, I'm not even laughing at it. Like I want to make that equivocally clear. This is just sick is
great. It's so much fun to watch. Like it's a joy every time his character shows up. Give me the bottle. Give me the ball. He's lost. Broken in the fight.
Jaime Pressly talkingike that also funny. Give me the bottle. It is lost like, bro.
Yeah, this episode written by Steve Hattman.
Just sending you back. No, please. You will need us Quan Chi. Back to Kung Lao.
So, clarification coming from off screen is such a good decision.
And he's so pissed about it too. Like you either are talking about Kung Lao, you bothered? What did you think I was sending you? Fuck. This episode was directed by Bruce Seth Green. Who directed some Buffy the Vampire Slayer episodes.
Bruce Seth Green.
Bruce Seth Green. Yeah, man. I just want to listen every time he talks like I don't even want to talk over it
so I think we kept
...as night, which has not arrived yet because of the solstice.
Who doesn't? like guess vampires probably don't
Quan Chi loves the solstice.
The Solstice baby.
Right but they get they get a solstice later in the year.
Oh, they get they get an extra hour sleep because I don't wanna go out yet. Right. It's kind of like daylight savings time for them.
I mean, they also get a really good a yawn. Oh, no. Anyway, that jokes over I think.
Yeah, that's fine.
Dust of the Netherrealm. I somehow just kept calling it Netherrealm sand. Kung Lao was off to the temple
How can I forget everybody making fun of things that Kung Lao holds completely dear.
She hates church dude. She's won our church shirt though. But she hates church
set out some Kung Lao. He gets Spruced up for you all the time. Don't be jealous This is why they wore the masks so they could come back with another plan and not be recognized.
Anyway, can I say that I know that like this kind of shaving is real. Yeah, it is but this makes me so uncomfortable just to watch.
Yeah, man. She just like sliced the fuck I don't know if you've ever you've cut yourself shaving Right? Like
All the time. you think ai was mostly trying to cut my face
Siann doesn't even use a fake name just uses her own name.
Well, that's my subtitles had an extra end on it. So maybe that's what they were yet.
That's just the spelling of the name.
No that was two Ns.
Yeah, it's spelled with two Ns and the current
Well earlier had a one N
Well, someone fucked up earlier.
Well take it up with like the Department of Education or whatever it
is. I'm gonna put it in the IMDB trivia. I guess the they are based in Tampa. I could go over there.
We could go there. Yeah. IN HELLL
Alright, this is Kung Lao getting baited number two.
It's been like five minutes.
It's the next morning for him. It wasn't even a full 24 hours for he's gonna fall for it again.
Where are you? He's just trying to like follow the sound of the her voice like he's not even like, I'll go out of my way to get put in a compromising situation.
How did she know?
Hey it's me, a random woman leaning up against the tree in a way that makes me look like I'm stuck.
Well, she is she's tied with leather.
I didn't notice.
Yeah, around her neck. Boom.
I was strangling is not I think how you would describe that?
Oh, maybe in Zhu Zin highway man,
it was Barry Lyndon
Can I tell you something fucked up?
Um, sure we're here.
So you know how David Carradine died, right?
Yes, I am familiar with that.
Okay. Well, I was
cannot wait to see where this is going.
Earlier today. Before we started the recording I was I was checking out a movie I just discovered exists called Evil Toons. Like T-o-o-n-s
just felt weird to see that in a movie because I was like, Oh, no. Thats all
"Fool" I forgot that she has like a vaguely Shakespearean way of speaking
she's just phenomenal. There I said it. Look
we know how you feel about Jamie Pressly.
she doesn't know yet
Don't even dare slide into her DMs it'd be so much easier if she had a cameo. Oh, yeah commercial.
I said it alright commercials ever pull.
It is actually over on the at the same time this time. They fucking nail but plan dude.
He's just got a regular chair.
Really It's like yeah, it's like a chair.
Yeah, you know, chairs.
It's like the chair I used to sit in to do this podcast before I bought
they they have already had board outfits that are made characters. They're changing outfits
They're changing outfits like Jen. Really. This is outfit three for all of them. That's nine total.
Quan Chi 22:49
should thank me without goodness. Like, Life can be so much more
Just the joy Quan Chi brings me dude. Fucking awesome
its so much fun
He looks like he's havinf the most fun anyone has ever had.
God. God the character is yeah, just the worst.
Quan Chi 23:19
It's alright. You know, I can fix you. And that pleases me so much to know how...
I feel like like we should remind the audience's that this this exact same plan to infect our heroes and bring out all the evil in them. Quan Chi uses again in defend
Defenders of the Realm.
Yeah, but in that one, he uses a big stone instead of NetherRealm. Sand, right?
Also, he's a he's a snake guy in that movie. He's got like, a pet TV show. And that TV show
Quan Chi 24:04
...STENCH OF DEATH
Dude's having the time of his fucking life dude.
Just fucking hanging out in Central Florida
This show really spikes here. Yeah, and it's already pretty good.
I know. But this like, really? This is what sells you on the show. You make it to this episode.
You're like, Okay, this is you have eight hours to kill.
You could honestly Fuck it. Like I am not one to watch stuff out of order. But uh, this is I watched this episode last week just for fun. Knowing we were gonna do it again for the podcast. I was like, I don't care. I'm watching it now.
Nice that they like, shot from the other side so they'd have to spend the money on the special effects of her face rotting.
don't like all of the decisions the character makes
Kung Lao! your back, can we spar toda like you promised?
Kung Lao 25:24
like I just I forgot mad he like he's never like Paolo Montalban has never looked angrier
He's never been mad in real life. He's never been this angry
You know howfun this must be for the actors
Sure, especially after how many weeks stuck in Central Florida.
Siro it's like 80% in the bag already.
Right? He's been chugging jars of wine all day. It
was like it's messy in here. I'm mad about it
BAM kick his ass Tada.
Kick his ass.
Oh she has been stealing
punch his ass.
just, Rayden. is just gonna be like Hey, everybody. Fine. Okay.
women do be shoppin'
do be shoppin boy you got it. Oh, wait.
Hey, sweetheart. As he's like, blowing it by being like, gross to this, this like lady who did not ask for it.
Poor Magda. This is this is (sad trombone)
Ew! Jesus Christ.
He's like, I've been listening. No, I'm not gonna
He's drinking out of like, like an Ikea like flower vase. Yeah, Daniel Bernhardt is like I'm a bad guy. Or face. They're just like, sweaty, drunk, delirious, just like hair in his face. Man.
Do you think he was actually like drinking on set? Maybe he actually had some wine in there. God
God if I was him, I probably you know, maybe slightly.
It's Florida, man. Anything goes
Yeah, you don't want to do it Too much. Sure. Because like you're you're at work. Right? You know, but like,
you think everyone on the show wasn't? I mean?
Wasn't at work? I think everybody was
like, just drinking.
No, I think we got consummate professionals here.
Sure, but I mean, are they so professional that it doesn't affect their work?
And now it's like Siro Siro Siro Siro, Siro, so
Siro don't don't do it. Leave Magda alone she doesn't have a name in the show yet.
your an animal, a pathetic animal. And I hope I never laid eyes on you again.
suddenly got less fun.
Just briefly get less fun by a pretty significant amount. Also, can I just say how insane This is? That they're like, Hey, what happened to Cassie? And then she just goes she's dead? Like doesn't even wait like a second to be like,
no, she just she's like she's dead.
Somebody murdered her.
This this woman meanwhile is like not involved in this at all. She's just stealing the off the flowers
my throats a little little horse.
Mine is to actually. it's gotta because it's a long day with the summer solstice. Am I righr?
she's about to steal from a dead person.
She's dead Nobody knows if you're stealing from a dead guy
right this is like technically a grave robbing um, she just gonna be buried here to fertilize the flowers she's selling
Grave robbing, that thing that's famously really cool.
Drunk ass Siro drinking his Crown Royal
Kung Lao walking in like he's actively trying to murder somebody like he's like a hunched over this like, absolute rage. At least Siro is like
Why What is he drinking out of like? Why is he using like, just this random?
I don't know. It's the same. It's the same kind of bottle that Kiri and Ankha drink out of.
Yeah, I forgot that he went to Jen's room.
Yeah dude just fucked up. Like went through like her underwear drawer or some shit oh fuck
I will say I do commend his ability to challenge the guy who won Mortal Kombat to a fight
Yeah he's that drunk. Right he's thought he has thought this entire show that he could kick Kung Lao was asked that's why he was so mad the news site bought Episode
Kung Lao 30:42
You're a used up freeloading bodyguard who couldn't even do that right when you had the job. You let Jen die
boys fight Oh, also a cool fight. I like this one. The close quarters fights are pretty good in this like, I think we've had several engines room at this point.
Yeah, I mean, it's because you know you can land comfortably on a soft bed.
Yeah, and use it like as part of the fight
all right. I was like that's a great fall over that chair.
That was good. Okay, are we counting the chairs and broken yet? Are we gonna count broken chairs?
No, I think we're okay. Okay, the chair might live actually
yeah, I guess it did survived
we will call it a fatality if the chair breaks
yes we will
man This fight is so good.
This is one of the Is this like a one of the best fights we've had these guys fucking throwing each other around in a way that the other fights just don't really have. Yeah, man. Like it's very visceral. was like hey again this feels like friends fighting
the tight quarters. No pun intended. Like allow them to do a lot of slamming each other in the walls and stuff
no pun intended?
Bam. Yeah. I'm not going to explain it to you
okay, because I don't get it
that's fine somebody out there will get it and they can tweet @mrcoreyprice and tell you
he like he just fucking kicked the drunk out of Siro dude. This bam.
What a great looking shot. That was great. This this so far has truly made this show at its peak.
The apotheosis of Mortal Kombat conquest speaking of apotheosis a God is about to show
Oh show commercial Paul.
Yeah, it is.
I've always preferred anticapitalist Paul
commercials over Paul
Rayden showing up is so funny. Bam. In Paolo Montalban cuz let's face is just like he's like Sith Lord levels.
There's my favorite line deliveries. Come in, hold on, hold on.
Kung Lao 33:02
Just let him lie there.
Right there. I fucking love that. I don't know the way he like waves his hand just so dismissively
here he's just so fucking mad. Yeah. Baiting me
God remember we watched the Raven?
Yeah, dude, Raven was so good. I've been trying to keep an eye out to see if Jeff Meek in this show ever says "See how easy life can be?" Not once yet, but if you hear it,
dude Kung Lao is the dude who got most fucking, like, he went on rage pilled like really?
listened to it. Yeah, he found that like a bad YouTube rabbit hole. Right
The only kind of YouTube rabbit hole at this point.
Yeah, yeah, don't forget to sign up.
Still raise Siro we're gonna make you look cool as hell. Subscribe to our YouTube
for our channel. It's all good stuff
slap him slap him awake for me. Angry
Siro where's Taja?
She's out there shopping dude
Could you imagine if he just whispered women be shopping?
shouldn't be a surprise because they never know what Taja is up to.
They don't That's true.
you shouldn't move Oh shit. There's some blood.
Oh, they love ketchup on the bag.
Was he just stirring that with his pinky?
Yeah, probably. Soraaaa
fucking rules this is a good set to the whole Quan Chi sets very cool haunted house spooky right?
he's drinking Coca Cola Starlight
Quan Chi 35:18
the best is yet to come
this escalated real fucking quick
Where's Taja? I don't know she's about to get hanged
She's about to get David Carradine'd
rim shot maybe? Sure
he won't there's no way that was.
That was yeah,
I assumed you just hit the wrong button.
oh I didn't hear at that time.
It's cool when we get to see Rayden do LIGHTNING POWERS
you think this is part of that rotoscope lightning Film Festival in Australia?
Rayden in fucking Jedi mode.
Yeah, dude. He never wears the hat. He hasn't worn the hat since the first episode.
It was for the tournament.
I guess it's because he had to put the hood up. Right I do kind of wish we had gotten to see more of Taja as like how she got caught and shit. Because we did just sort of like jump way ahead like last time we saw her she took a ring off a dead body and now the whole town's trying to murder her.
this might be the first time we saw the nighttime CGI establishing shot.
Sorry, I'm very old. I'm very disguised.
I love that she knows him.
You're a long way from your home. Sora What's he doing here?
So she had to look into his eyes to recognize him. Do you think his face used to look different?
Yeah, his body is entirely contained within his eyes. Oh, so they just put it into different bodies.
Okay. That's why the actors change between this and the movies.
Yeah, it's all in the eyes. Speaking of the eyes as well, the lightnings in there.
That was pretty sick looking like purpley.
gonna act like I knew that was coming in. That's why I started making the joke.
It is cool to see that even Rayden despite not being infected with rage blood is really sort of peeking.
Yeah, this is good. Jeff Meek. Everyone is on fucking fire in this episode.
Yeah, they're really swinging for the fences. And I can say that because this is the fastest one of these episodes has gone by. Not that the others were slugs, but like you just truck through this one. It's been half an hour. Like geez
it's like yeah, we're near the end. I want it to go on another.
Can't wait for the new movie Thor thunder rumble.
We have not called Rayden the storm warrior nearly enough in our commentaries.
By the way, the titular stormwarrior ravine
Or The Thunderer
Thundercat. I'm in jail.
I'm in the tiny jail. In the trading post. They have a real jail in the basement. Why isn't she in that one? Like she was in that jail in the first episode.
What's happening to me?
It's happened to all of you. The work of a man named Quan Chi.
He said the thing No shit.
was just the one button press
I dont know. Just every now and then you say a word wrong and it's funny.
That's all comedy.
It's the height. It's the peak of comedy
Rayden doesn't have healing powers
Oh, yes. Sick first aid skills
that did sound sick. Wow. That's like a 240 P. Shot. Movie.
Pretty sure that is the picture on the Wikipedia page.
That was a postcard.
Kung Lao went to where all of his friends hang out and just beat the shit
the absolute shit out of all of the every single monk. All of them This episode needed like an extended cut
I forgot tht he almost executed a monk.
Yeah, he's about to cut a dude's head off right
there like oh, it really got to Kung Lao Holy
yeah, man. This isn't like I want the extended version of this episode where we see
anti capitalism, Paul
All of it
BAM more lightning
fucking sick Rayden finally gets the show off a little bit. Right God, he is going full fucking Sith mode.
Like he is.
Like, there's like, I think that this is instructive in that. This is really highlighting the degree to which there is an obscene amount of hidden below the surface rage within Kung Lao. That he is remarkably good at hemming in because he has a lot of angst about this whole Mortal Kombat thing.
That's why he goes to the temple all the time and meditates and you know, hangs out with his monk buddies
except this time he beat the shit out of all of them
we're not gonna see like more Rayden like showing off his powers until I think the last episode
"You almost killed a monk!" half this commentary just repeating lines back to the show because it's been so good.
God, Jeff Meek as Rayden I don't know why I said his name, finally figured out finally figured out the Quan Chi plan
he's after your soul, Kung Lao just like everybody else on the show is
why did he call him bald for no reason?
Yeah, don't pick on, come on. The guy can't help it. Right?
Yeah, man, you you do want to steal
you want to steal as much as Siro wants to drink and Kung Lao to kill
Damn. Called Out
Can't or won't see something doesn't mean it's not there. When you were a conscious thief, what do you do?
God he's gonna be like, Yeah, but you'd liked it too. Right?
Yeah, I don't know if I love this. Yeah. Because it's like, it doesn't have to be that. She did. She did have a pretty good reason.
Sure, but let's also just I mean, I think it's more that she's like an adrenaline junkie because she also signed up to to fight Shang Tsung right.
Got Jeff Meek is fucking poppin off dude.
A guy who just wants to sing dirty songs, Belch and pinch women
the writing is so good. Do you want to do another commentary about this episode next week?
I'd consider it
what we should do is watch this in the discord with everybody
I want to let this emotional moment happen before I answer your question there wasn't a question but you know
don't talk in the second person, he's Kung Lao
Jeff Meek good at this whole acting thing
He is, he, God I wanna watch raven like right now
Fucking same. And also I want to watch Mortal Kombat conquest
two screens at the same time see if they sync up in an interesting way.
See if it kills me
I like that they give us some characterization for
I liked that they think they can keep a secret from Quan Chi.
Quan Chi's slaves right
this is like outfit number five.
Well, we're back to outfit number one really, But yeah, it's another costume change the body suits I didn't understand like
she does like to kill
Oh yeah. Siann does love murder
they're all really good. I'm just gonna say Jamie Presley go on MK Podques
is their hair getting bigger with every cut? Everybody's hair was just getting bigger. Quan Chi just been in the room the whole time. I've got a secret fucking like pirate Ira even though he doesn't, pirate,
yes, it's 100% He's got swashbuckler energy
to slideshow. Conveniently, they're all still here while Quan Chi just like I'm gonna go talk to Kung Lao,
I'm gonna go kill him and take his soul.
Your soul Yeah, look at this smile. That's so good.
I'm laughing at Quan Chi's delivery so like dismissive.
Yeah, cuz he's better than everybody.
Yeah. Look at you. You've all grown you're grown up and ready to fight Kung Lao? I don't know. I'm tired.
bam, Phantom Zone time. Oh, snap.
Damn. You've stopped looking like you're gonna punch anybody.
They're like alright, so you just kind of like yeah, let's go to Applebee's guys.
Quan Chi you can't act like you don't know why Rayden cares about this
I liked that. He's like, I'm gonna I'm gonna get Kung Lao soul not to keep or to get stronger but test sell. This is commercial Quan Chi
this is good fucking television. With all
those spikes and shit.
It's the shine
Green magic Hell yeah. That'll be the thumbnail
Fine I'll put my skulls away
and my collar and my gauntlets.
Battle I want to like make punching sounds along with this. You talked about the Sith earlier now Quan Chi is the high ground Hey, yo, and
he's got big fucking shoulder pads
all the flips he's doing in the doorway.
Mortal Kombat conquest brought to you by the Obi Wan show
the Disney plus.com and enter the promo code Qwanchy
Go to Acre gold .edu and enter the code Warby Parker to get a mattress I don't know
sponsored by liquid death this is cool like the all the splits and stuff he's doing?
Yeah, there is some real flexible guys yeah
some some bendy boys. Right.
I've heard of it. Yeah, the fact that he just like locks himself in between the pillars for no reason
was again he's obsessed with gaining the high ground
it's just it's just cool.
Yeah there's a couple of shots I think where they just zoom in on his face and he's screaming that wasn't one of them
so many flips
don't how did how did Quan Chi figured out just by not
why does he not mentioned that Taja also lived because the casual sexism
Yeah, the show doesn't really care about
I'm gonna go into the floor
Kung Lao is still so mad.
like not dying.
Let's go home and watch some TV.
Anti capitalism Paul.
That's actually capitalism, Paul. This is an extended one. They're just showing the whole fight over again. It's still going on. Yep, that is a it's really still going on.
It's over Paul. Fucking long. They could have given us like, eight more second
They're just leaving Siro behind.
They Yeah This is fucked up Siro
Siro is mostly dead he is there though
yeah they're real great at crumbling burn take that master Hwang I think
now we get like the moral lesson wrap up
but Boy Meets World moment where they walked through the golden hour woods. It's where Winnie the Pooh lives the golden hour woods and go take a photo in the golden hour woods. It's the summer solstice man, the sun's still out,
dude. It's yeah, it is the summer solstice in this episode to man it must be
Sundowns when you make of it in your mind,
yes, Sun sun's out guns out
Sun Lau to give up
just do what you were doing before you got poisoned with rage. It is infectious. Just do what you were doing.
As you pointed out, Siro is like almost dead and Rayden is forcing them to walk back instead of use his magic to just take them back like how he took them their
Captionss by Vitac. Burbank, Pittsburgh, Tampa and Washington DC.
Yeah, I'll head up to the to the Tampa office
and the US Department of Education.
That Siann spelling error. Fucking fucking good episode God

Yeah, yeah, they definitely know who they are. I've already gotten copyright strikes on our YouTube channel.
Yet. We didn't think it was ever gonna happen on account of let's be honest. They're not paying attention for this stuff. But it took like, a long time, but it did happen
to happen a few times. But we handle it. No worries. Yeah, we know a guy. Anyway.
