Next on the chopping block: Super

School's back in and the nights are getting cooler, which can only mean one thing -- the summer specials are coming to a close. And we figured there's no better way to wrap them up than to make fun of some super heroes, especially after the glut of comic-book movies that came out these last five months.

Super comes from the twisted mind of James Gunn, who made Slither a couple of years back. It stars Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page as a couple of very real world super heroes who tackle a local drug dealer, played by Kevin Bacon.

There's a been a few dark super hero comedies lately, including Kick Ass and Defendor. But how does this mix of brutal violence, black humour, satire and gritty reality fair compared to the rest? Stick with us! The September Special lands Sunday morning on iTunes, Facebook, podOmatic and right here on the blog.

The summer specials are stripped down versions of the radio show. Just a review and some lively banter. Jason and Shawn will be back in The Basement Oct. 7 at 10 p.m. PST only on 92.5FM CFBX Kamloops, Shaw Cable 106.1 and www.thex.ca for all new full-length episodes with Season Two.

And now for a look at our feature presentation:
