The Prisoner 17 – Fall Out

Help, I’ve fallen out and I can’t get up!

And so we come to the end of yet another show on Inevitable. We’re really just motoring through them now, and honestly with the quarantine and everything it works out pretty well given the lack of “going out” we’re all doing. And so with that I present to you definitely the last episode of this season absolutely. It’s Fall Out, written by Patrick McGoohan and aired on February 1, 1968.

317: Shilling for Amazon (Meat)

This week on Amazon ™ podcasts.

I wonder when Amazon will own the world and bring us Amazon Meat ™. I don’t have anything else witty to say actually just figured that that would be a funny joke to make. Meat doesn’t even sound like a word any more but I’m sure if you think about something else for long enough it will be alright again. It’s Meat, written by Catherine Tregenna and aired on February 6, 2008.

The Prisoner 16 – Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time in the Village…

… there lived a young boy named Patrick. Now Patrick was an adventurous young lad, who got into loads of trouble. It was pretty soon he started to grow up and discover what all teenage boys do: girls. Patrick was special though because he also discovered something else around the same time: misogyny. It’s Once Upon a Time, written by Patrick McGoohan and aired on January 25, 1968.

316: The Last Bastion of Hope for the English Language (To The Last Man)

You heard it here first, English is dead.

Turns out Kiyan’s entire field of study is dead except for him. You might wonder if you’re stuck inside a strange YA novel, since that seems exactly the kind of thing that would be written into one of those plots. But let me assure you, this is a Shakespeare play, and it’s a tragedy. It’s To The Last Man, written by Helen Raynor and aired on January 30, 2008.


Show-notes:


1:30: The Scots Wikipedia is currently going through some difficulties.
3:42: Knott’s Berry Farm is an amusement park in Southern California. It’s called Knott’s Berry Farm because it started as a berry farm.
4:41: Daffy vs. Donald
16:09: It’s defibrillation. Defibulation is something COMPLETELY different.
20:52: If you want to listen to us talk about classic sci-fi shows, check out our classic sci-fi podcast, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast. Also the actor we were thinking of was Kenneth Griffith a.k.a. Kenneth Reginald Griffiths.

The Prisoner 15 – The Girl Who Was Death

Lots of titles in The Prisoner seem to refer to death…

You ever heard that song about how God is a girl? Well maybe this is kind of like that, and The Prisoner is saying that Death is actually a girl too. I’m not sure about the veracity of that statement, of course, so when I’m dying I’ll report back with my findings about who or what even the grim reaper is. I’ll be sure to send them your best regards too. It’s The Girl Who Was Death, written by Terence Feely and aired on January 18, 1968.


Show-notes:
13:22: Check out Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast if you want to listen to us talk about Doctor Who and Torchwood for way too long.
16:25: Baseball and cricket evolved from rounders, which I’ve never heard of but is apparently still played today.
23:41: Sideburns come from United States general Ambrose Burnside. Make sure to prepare yourself mentally before clicking this link and seeing this guy’s sideburns. You might need it.
28:30Alright so fine James Bond was the one who stuck the broom handle in and not the other way around, but like whatever man.
35:48 Incidents at Disneyland California.
36:27: Ghost Rider is a sketch-ass rollercoaster at Knott’s Berry Farm, an amusement park in Southern California.
39:20: Yeah, I have no idea what this stuff was called. I remember it being like canvas that you do something to to make it moldable or something like that. If anyone knows, hit us up and tell us.
43:51: Hey, we discussed James Wan and Leigh Whannel once.
50:20: I could barely find anything on sea-washed lighthouses, the ones that jut up out of the water, but this wave washed lighthouses page implies that they’re built on rocks or reefs that are only accessible at low tide.
53:21: This Napoleon family tree makes me dizzy.
1:06:24: Anchoring bias is when you rely heavily on a single piece of information, usually the first one you hear on a given topic.

315: Five Rounds Slow (Sleeper)

It’s like five round rapid without the rapid.

I never did like rapids. People go on and on about how cute they are with their long ears and fluffy tails, but really they’re just rodents, right? Or maybe that was “rabbits.” Eh. Speaking of rodents, guess who “rode int”o town this week. It was the sleepers, their orders to take over finally having kicked in. It’s Sleeper, written by James Moran and aired on January 23, 2008.


Show-notes:
8:37: 0118999881999119725…….. 3
11:30: Hey, we watched and discussed Aliens and Alien 3. Not Alien though. Screw Alien.
14:51: According to Smithsonian Mag, “cops and donuts” is a stereotype because donuts places were traditionally open late.

314: Jason Bourne is Now a Genre (Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang)

I’ll be over here committing tax fraud during the purge, don’t mind me.

Once upon a time I wanted to be a secret agent. But then I realized they probably wouldn’t like some sort of weird RSA expat who lives in the US. They might not trust that I’d be working in the best interest of the agency I work for. Interesting to ponder. It’s Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on January 16, 2008.


Show-notes:


3:52: If you want to listen to us do what we’re doing hear but with classic sci-fi shows like Sapphire and Steel and The Prisoner, check out our podcast where we do what we’re doing here but with classic sci-fi shows like Sapphire and Steel and The Prisoner, Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast.
5:45: I confused the name of Shirley Bassey’s rejected theme (“Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang”) with the song I was referring to (“The World is Not Enough” by Straw)
23:03: Now that I think about it, I don’t think Chris actually ever says “Get out” in Get Out.
43:17: “Universal law is for lackeys, context is for kings” – Captain Lorca, 2083 or something.
59:10: Etymonline explains that “dollar” comes from “taler,” short for “Joachimstaler” – “of Joachim” – which refers to coins minted from a silver mine in the town of Joachimstal, which is now known as Jáchymov.
1:05:23: Now Dylan knows.

The Prisoner 13 – Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling

I wonder what this song this episode is named after really sounds like.

Today in long as heck names that are a little bit meaningless: a name we didn’t actually come up with. I mean, let’s be fair we’ve definitely come up with some long and inconsequential or confusing names. But for once in our lifetimes, the long and useless name was not invented by Decorative Vegetable, it was invented by McGoohan McGoohan. It’s Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling, written by Vincent Tillsley and aired on December 22, 1967.


Show-notes:

4:31: If you want to listen to us do what we do here but with shows like Doctor Who and Torchwood, check out Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast, our Doctor Who podcast.
11:37: The “Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling” band. LIVE. Ok not really. It’s just some of their music videos. Close enough.
46:07: I couldn’t find the scene by itself anywhere. 🙁 And I decided not to break copyright laws lol.
57:57: We also do a movie trilogy podcast called Triple Play. Check it out cause it desperately needs the listeners.

313: Date With an Active Volcano (End of Days)

Tune in soon as Kiyan gets yeeted into an active volcano live.

Volcanoes. They’re hard to nail down. On the one hand, they can wreak destruction on an unimaginably immense scale. On the other hand, they’re sources of life. On the other other hand (the Tenth Doctor’s hand obviously), they have nothing to do with this episode of Torchwood, so who cares? It’s End of Days, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on December 31, 2006.


Show-notes:


4:45: If you want to hear more about “six of one, half a dozen of the other,” check out Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast, our classic sci-fi podcast on which we’re currently watching The Prisoner. And if you’re reading this long after this episode goes out, then we’ve already watched all of The Prisoner.
25:00: 🌋 (<– this is a link)
27:50: BEHOLD: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/🌋
28:43: Salai’s Mona Lisa looks better than the weird green-sepia in my opinion.

The Prisoner 12 – A Change of Mind

As the title says, this week we have a Change of Mind in how good The Prisoner is.

I kind of wish we gave titles to these episodes because this one would have definitely been “Misogynist Moment of the Week.” Everyone talks about separating the art from the artist but what do you do when the art IS the artist? What do you do when the misogyny of Patrick McGoohan is also the misogyny of #6? This seems like a philosophical question of the kind of complexity that exceeds the purview of this podcast. It’s A Change of Mind, written by Roger Parkes and aired on December 15, 1967.


Show-notes
11:37: “Where’s Waldo?” is “Where’s Wally?” everywhere outside of North America.
28:55: Here’s the transorbital lobotomy from Bioshock Infinite.
40:05: Apparently the Lord Kitchener poster in Britain came before the U.S.’ Uncle Same poster.
52:30: If you want to listen to us talk about shows like Doctor Who and Torchwood, check out our Doctor Who podcast, Trust Your Doctor: A Doctor Who Podcast.
