Lord of the Rings

The biggest trilogy ever attempted for this podcast… for a long time.

This was a serious slog. Now the real question is am I talking about the editing or the watching of these movies? I could be talking about both, it’s really late at night and I’ve been up for nearly 15 hours at this point. Which isn’t really that much of a bad thing, but I’ve been working all day. A quest of my own almost. It’s Lord of the Rings, as well as the very first episode of Season 2 of Triple Play. Let’s get this start with some Peter Jackson classics.

287: Frogtor Who (The Witchfinders)

Ribbit ribbit ribbit ribbit ribbit ribbit.

Something something the Crucible is actually about the Red Scare. Well not actually. It was really about the witch hunts, but it’s supposed to be heavily about the Red Scare. Drawing parallels between the two really. But as Kiyan says “intentionality doesn’t matter” so in many ways you could see it as whatever you want. Maybe to you it’s just a play about the witch hunts. It’s The Witchfinders, written by Joy Wilkinson and aired on November 25, 2018.


Show-notes:


6:26: Bring out yer dead
13:25: Abraham Lincoln actually was the 16th president. Trump is the 45th.
18:12: If you want to hear us discuss the Troll “trilogy,” check out Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast
53:21: The bible on tattoos

Children of the Stones 7 – Full Circle ft. Jim (The Krynoid Podcast)

How many times can I reference Doctor Who this week?

This is the second season finale for Inevitable, and this time we’ve actually gone all out and gotten a guest. That’s quite a step up from Star Cops which just kind of… ended. And then it wasn’t really an end because we were back the next week. Well this time that won’t be true. Triple Play will be returning in Inevitable’s place so look out for that! It’s Full Circle, written by Jeremy Burnham and Trevor Ray and aired on February 21, 1977.


Show-notes:


12:45: For those who don’t know who Charlie Chan is (like I didn’t), he’s (far as I can tell) a fairly controversial fictional detective.
35:47: It was Return to the Stones
47:52: The series I was thinking about here was The Clifton House Mystery.
1:02:22: Lucas apparently drew heavily on The Hidden Fortress when creating Star Wars.
1:31:48: Check out Krynoid Podcast to hear Jim talk about Doctor Who.
1:33:41: And check out Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast to hear us talk about movie trilogies.

286: Too Good to Exist (Kerblam)

The greatest “thing” that’s ever been in Doctor Who.

I sit here editing this episode on my Amazon laptop, with my Amazon Ergonomic Chair listening on my Amazon Buds. My Amazon branded air freshener releases a new scent to improve my workflow. I take a sip of Amazon approved water, delivered in an Amazon plastic bottle. I smile, for Amazon will look after me. It’s Kerblam, written by Pete McTighe and aired on November 18, 2018.


Show-notes:


13:31: Retrofuturism as described by Wikipedia
21:03: Sadly I can’t find this story anymore. According to this discussion, it might have been “A Short History of World War LXXVIII” by Roy L. Prosterman, but then ISFDB (and the comment thread on stackexchange) say that this story was never anthologized, and I’m pretty sure I read it in a sci-fi anthology. The worst part? I have no way of checking since I got rid of the anthology I think I read it in years ago, and “A Short History of World War LXXVIII” is nowhere to be found online as far as I can tell. Google gave me nothing at least.
23:43: The best gif of Tom Baker

Children of the Stones 6 – Squaring the Circle

Personally I find circles to be a much more pleasing shape than squares.

Oh god I can’t believe how late I was in uploading this episode. Or was I? In reality this podcast exists within a temporal loop, and is continuously being repeated for all eternity. Which means you’ve already heard this episode, and will hear it again soon. It’s Squaring the Circle written by Jeremy Burnham and Trevor Ray and aired on February 14, 1977.


Show-notes:


1:30: Check out Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast
1:50: Squaring the circle is an actual thing.
3:59: If you want to hear us disparage Adric from Doctor Who way more than we do here, heck out Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast.
14:24: SnooPING AS usual I see. Also, here’s an explanation of Big Chungus for the uninitiated (like me).
25:50: If you for some reason want to hear us talk more about the Troll “trilogy” (including “Troll 3,” the movie we talk about here), check out our Triple Play episode on it.

285: Yes, But Actually No (Demons of the Punjab)

 

I feel really bad about not knowing anything about partition, but watching this episode for the second time has actually prompted me to look into it more. It seems to have served the Doctor Who purpose of introducing an audience to an entirely new topic that they had no idea about. Does that make it the most successful Doctor Who episode of all time? Stay tuned to find out. It’s Demons of the Punjab, written by Vinay Patel and aired on November 11, 2018.


Show-notes:


2:12: The Hugo awards are chosen by the World Science Fiction Society. The Nebulas on the other hand are chosen by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. Wikipedia’s joint winners of the Hugo and Nebula awards. Also the book I was talking about was The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe, which won the World Fantasy Award for long fiction and was nominated by the Hugos, Nebulas, and Locus awards.
14:49: Behold the majesty of ThrustSSC.
24:44: It was probably the Battle of Singapore, part of World War 2.
28:52: Seeds of Death had Jamie and Zoe in it.
34:17: Check out Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast and Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast
56:20: Mountbatten

Children of the Stones 5 – Charmed Circle

Honestly when was the last time you even heard the word charmed?

Honestly this episode seems to have already flown my memory. It’s been like a week and a half or so since I watched it and my brain has just completely and utterly discarded it. Like, it’s just frankly gone. Or at least it was until I remembered that this was the episode with the you know what sandwich. Shudder. It’s Charmed Circle, written by Jeremy Burnham and Trevor Ray and aired on February 7, 1977.


Show-notes:


4:37: For more about Mission to Destiny, check out Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast.
6:32: Nolo contendere. It was actually Scotland that had “not proven
18:49: For more on Fred 2, check out Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast. Yes, it’s the sequel to the feature-length film about Fred.
21:03: I corrected myself from McDonald’s to KFC here, but let’s be honest they probably both do this.
23:16: The wikipedia page for Forbidden Planet has more info on how the animation in the movie was done. And I wasn’t right about how it was done.
27:00: Ok, here’s the weird thing. I found the page again so I could post the link here (here it is), but it actually says “clearly match” and not “perfectly match.” I could’ve sworn it said “perfectly” and would still swear it did. I wouldn’t have even brought it up if it didn’t. This is some Twilight Zone stuff right here. Or maybe I just misread it. Who knows?

284: Surfing the Skies of New York (The Tsuranga Conundrum)

We call it sky surfing here.

When I heard the name of this episode I kind of imagined it as an almost Kobayashi Maru situation. You know in Star Trek, it’s the no win situation that Kirk cheats at to win, and that cheating is the reason he gets given the captain’s chair because they really like his initiative in… cheating… I guess? But then it turned out to not be that at all. It’s The Tsuranga Conundrum, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on November 4, 2018.


Show-notes:


4:15: Check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast and Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast.
13:28: I did a little googling and I’m pretty sure this is wrong. I think you’d only die by eating and/or licking poison dart frogs, not just touching them. None of the sources I found mentioned that just touching them would kill you.
15:11: Side-by-side comparison of the unreleased cut of Lilo & Stitch featuring more realistic aircraft and cityscapes and the theatrical version.

Children of the Stones 4 – Narrowing Circle

Wait how do you have a narrow circle?

I’m starting to wonder if this series could be even more trippy if I dropped some acid or smoked some weed right before watching it every week. I think that’s what Matt is doing so why can’t I do it as well? Tune in next week for the resolution to this thrilling plot line. Just kidding. It’s Narrowing Circle, written by Jeremy Burnham and Trevor Ray and aired on January 31, 1977.


Show-notes:


9:37: I could only find The Rhetoric of Temporality on Scribd, which you need an account for unfortunately.
18:49: According to this barbering timeline, barbers in ancient times (~900 according to this site) also performed surgeries and were called barber surgeons.
29:00: The Logan’s Run movie actually came out in 1976 and the tv series came out in late 77. It was actually Star Wars that came out on December 27, 1977 in the UK (just about a week before Blake’s 7).

283: The Twitspace (Arachnids in the UK)

All of America is the twitspace.

I just realized how weird it is that the villain in a UK story is an American. There’s probably more to that now that I think about it, something about how America gained its independence and now the UK hates them or something. It’s Arachnids in the UK, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on October 28, 2018.


Show-notes:


2:12: Article about George Lucas’ original ideas for the sequel trilogy.
3:56: Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast
10:50: Obviously I was just joking here, but a quick skim of the Tardis wiki reminded me that the Master’s plan in Time-Flight was something along the lines of using the Tardis’ energy to break out of some alternate dimension. Also here’s (one version of) that meme with Gru from Despicable Me.
13:46: Yeah I still have no idea what this was supposed to be or what it is. According to the Doctor Who wiki, he said pakora, but that’s not what it sounded like at all.
24:05: Before the Law by Kafka
25:54: Zenith: A Blake’s 7 Podcast
27:26: Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast
40:02: Pretty sure it was grime.
45:11: Axolotl by Cortázar
