    Really? I bet they’re not even goin to get the same cast! Percy’s gonna be blond and Annabeth’s gonna be a redhead!

    • Nmini

      it’s the same cast as percy jackson 1 or at least the main cast

  • speedsk8

    Another Percy Jackson movie? is that even possible since they forgot Kronos? They’ll probably pretend they made the first movie exactly like the book, then screw up the second movie as well. they’ll forget to make Tyson a cyclops or something.

  • hoke

    I’m pretty stoked for episode twenty now!

  • Frankbaney

    will Emily S. ever get on the show

  • guest

    LETS GO WITH THE 17TH PODCAST..YOU GUYS ARE ALWAYS LATE!

    • Tabitha K.

      Or perhaps they’re just never early….

    • Coasterking

      blame that on bob

    • Matt S

      Some of you fellows really aught to get some hobbies. It will be done when its done. These guys and gals aren’t y’alls slaves, they got lives and jobs outside this website. Chill out.

  • DMM

    Oh no, not another Avatar movie… 
    They really just want to get as much money out of the idea as they can. Hope they know that sequels never top the first.

    • Tabitha K.

      I;m really, REALLY worried about this. Avatar is my favorite movie ever, and if they screw it up with a sequel there will be absolutely no forgiveness.

    • TKrieger77

      tell that to The Dark Knight and Harry Potter.

  • Frankbaney

    will there be any trivia or give-aways on the next podcast 

    • No, but episode 19 will be guest hosted by Christopher Paolini’s editor, Michelle Frey! Outside of the Paolini family, no one knows the books better than Michelle.

      Episode 20 will be guest hosted by the author himself! Christopher will join us for our final episode.

      • The Green dragon

        Will there be any cool stuff that you reveal on episode 17?

        • Yes, but I’ve already revealed it here in the comments. There will be “celebrity guest hosts” on episode 19 and 20. Episode 18 has already been recorded and, in my opinion, is our funniest episode yet.

          • Tabitha K.

            I LOVE funny! And banter. The banter is my favorite.

          • Frankbaney

            will Emily S. ever get on the show 

          • Sara Francis

            your kinda missing 17.

          • Coasterking

            that would be bobs fault

      • Yeah

        You just kind of made my day Mike so you know thanks bro. 

      • Lil Uhura

        Yayyyy!! Gamers victory dance ensues…Dut-dut-dud-duh-duhh, dut-dut-dud-duh-duhh, dut-dut-dud-duh-duhh yeeeooww!!

      • bromandsaphira

        I. am. speechless. 
        you guys are so amazing! thanks for organizing all of this!! can’t wait!!

      • Coasterking

        is bob working on getting 1 7 out to us?

      • hoke

        thats so awesome! it totally makes up for any delays!

  • timmy

    i viewed the percy jackson movie as similar to the eragon movie.  they were both terrible compared to the book and dont let the story really continue because they messed up so many parts.  but they are good because they do draw attention to good stories.  i had heard of but never read either series till the movies started being advertised and then i read eragon and percy jackson, both after seeing an ad for its respeced movie and assuming the books would be better

    • I started reading Percy Jackson after having seen the movie. I thought the movie was enjoyable, but compared to the books, was rubbish.

  • Elena Shadeslayer

    wasnt the first percy jackson movie bad enough??? (compared to the book, it was a really good movie, but compared to the book…blah) it better be MUCH better this time. with new actors perhaps?? and YOUNGER actors perhaps? and more like the book?????

    and are they remaking the movie for eragon???? because they better or the world will explode.

  • gabs345

    thanks for posting lytherus updates in addition to inheritance. i love lytherus but its hard to keep up with both of them (as well as other websites i follow). cant wait for hunger games and percy jackson!!

  • Sea of Monsters WHOO!!! And the Hunger Games are getting closer….

  • hoke

    I still havent gone to bed haha

    Xbox 720 = fail of a console and idea …. This is blocked at my school so i can’t view it XD but which avatar is this? As in James Cameron’s or the stupid Nickolodeon programme?

    • Avatar. But the Nickolodeon show is amazing. I should ban you for saying that! (But I won’t.)

      • bromandsaphira

        totally agree. I am a loyal Last Airbender fan!

        • Matt S

          Except for the movie. I didn’t care for it.

          • Never saw the movie, but everyone who did that I asked said it was just a horrible movie, and most of those people had never even seen the show

          • Matt S

            Yea, it was crap. If you had seen the show then the movie sucked cause it skipped so much story (among many other reasons), and if you hadn’t seen the show then it sucked cause you had absolutely no idea what was going on.

      • Coasterking

        you tell them mike

        lol, i can have an opinion right? 😛

    Percy Jackson II? *Groans*
    I am possibly one of the biggest rick riordan fans here. How can they continue the series? They blocked out Kronos, made annabeth a brunette, missed half the story, and that’s just in the first movie. If Kronos Is the forever continuing enemy, then how can the finish the series without mentioning him? I hope they don’t mess up the second one, otherwise I’ll possibly go mad. I think tonnes of others agree with me when I say that the first movie was rubbish in comparison to the book.

    • Elena Shadeslayer

      this better be a remake with new YOUNGER and better actors. ugh…

    • makenna52

      I completely agree with you about Kronos . . . but I think the series could probably continue if the only problem was Annabeth being brunette. Just sayin . . .  🙂

    • makenna52

      I completely agree with you about Kronos . . . but I think the series could probably continue if the only problem was Annabeth being brunette. Just sayin . . .  🙂

      • Anonymous

        Yeah, you’re right, too. They could probably get away with suddenly springing Kronos in the last movie, and show the siege on manhattan. And really do love the series.

  • Valbrandr

    Alas – even these awesome updates cannot assuage my podcast-withdrawal symptoms. Well, it looks like this is gonna be a great week! Thanks Mike.

  • I’ll answer the questions you’re all bound to ask:

    1. When is the podcast coming? Sometime soon — Bob had a bit of a delay with editing, but it was recorded Thursday.
    2. When is the Big Twenty coming? Shortly after the podcast. Goal was Monday, but it’s delayed for the podcast.
    3. Will episode 18 be on time? Yes.
    4. Where is the interview part two? It will release this week, I cannot say when (I do not yet know).

    • Guest

      Been asked those a lot Mike?

      • In every thread, regardless of topic. I think there are people who simply come here to spam those questions.

        • Coasterking

          i know im somewhat gulity but its late so thats why all the questions.

        • The Green dragon

          So this is probable really annoying cus ive said it a lot but my iPod wont let me get on the CP video post, but did you say that the podcast was gonna come late tonight (Central Time) or early/sometime tomarrow.

          • It’s all up to when Bob finishes editing.

          • Coasterking

            which will be when

        • Denmark111

          I’m one of them. I’m glad you saved me the trouble 🙂

    • bromandsaphira

      thank you sooo much Mike! you guys are amazing. thanks for making the wait for book four bearable, and really, really fun!

    • Can’t wait for the interview. You do such a good job with them. Have you gotten a chance to read book 4 yet, or is CP making you wait until it’s released too?

      • The only people who have read Book 4 are Christopher, his family, and his editors. 🙂

        • Ok. I’ve heard that sometimes special people are given advanced copies to read so they can help build hype, or whatever. Anyway, I”m not sure you could even tell us if you did before the book was officially released

    • Harry Quacker

      What chapters are we supposed to read for episode 18?

      • Mark1817

        Stop after ‘insubordination” I think mate the next one should be “message in a mirror”

        • Harry Quacker

          I thought those chapters are for 17, I read those already, I have started the reading for 18 and was wondering how far to go. If the last one is going to be a theory episode so I assume we should be finishing the book for episode 19.
