Series currently produced by Firefilm:²* [[ No Right Answer]]: A video series in which two of the guys (usually Chris and Kyle) debate the best of two options, such as Best Batman Ever, but usually with bizarre choices, in this case, Val Kilmer or George Clooney.²* [[ Media Sandwich]]: A podcast where Chris and Kyle and (usually) a guest talk about anything related to video games, movies, or comics, usually going way off the rails.²²!!

[[LampshadedTrope Lampshaded]] by the creators, saying it works really well for publicity.²* SpitTake: Forcing the other person into this is an automatic victory in No Right Answer. ²* ShoutOut: Chris recites the phrase "thank God for us" in the Best Superhero Team ever episode, a reference to ''The WebVideo/{{Jimquisition}}'', where Jim Sterling ends his episodes with "Thank God for me!"²* StraightManAndWiseGuy: Kyle and Chris, respectively. ²* TakeAThirdOption: How Chris wins the ''Best Comic Book Billionaire'' debate. Kyle leads with one of the obvious choices ([[Franchise/{{Batman}} Bruce Wayne]]), and obviously expected Chris to counter with the other obvious choice ([[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]]). Chris picked ''[[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Scrooge McDuck]]''.²* ThrowItIn: Their approach to podcasting.
