Episode 19.5: Tigger has Glocks

Honestly surprised Hollywood hasn’t made a gritty Pooh reboot.

This week we purge our bad feelings about podcasting. We just kind of vomit it all out into the recording and then boom it kind of just happens. You know. We purged, so all our episodes should be good for the next year now I think. It’s The First Purge, written by James DeMonaco, directed by Gerard McMurray and release on July 4, 2018.


Show-notes:


6:54 Gone Girl is an ok movie with Ben Affleck in it. Also it was directed by David Fincher.

19:27 UFO is UFO.
20:57 Destroyer is pretty awesome. Dietrich Smith did the illustrations.
23:46 The Bluest Eye was Toni Morrison’s first novel.
25:17 Best Mark Twain.
28:51 Before the Law by Franz Kafka.
39:30 Wow can’t believe Children of Men was a box office failure.

Episode 19: Is It Cheese?

Well, yes. In a sense of the word it is cheese.

Triple Play is  back, one week later, but better late than never really in my opinion. And we’re watching basically the greatest movies we have ever watched for this podcast, it’s The Purge. What would you do during the Purge? I’d pirate The Purge movies to be honest, I think that’d be really weird and meta.


Show-notes:


5:22 The Return of the Archons is an original series Star Trek episode.
8:28 Ethan Hawk played Todd Anderson in Dead Poets Society.
9:11 He also played Goodnight Robicheaux in the new Magnificent 7.
9:42 Gattaca is actually good. You should watch it.
9:55 Don’t watch The Host though. Please, just don’t.
11:31 300 might be the only movie where you can watch Spartans fight werewolves.
11:44 Uncle Grandpa and Danger Mouse are cartoons shows.
11:55 Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is Jane Austen’s lost 7th novel.
12:01 Zipper isn’t a Blumhouse movie, but nobody has heard of it either way.
12:45 Will the wait for the next season of True Detective be worth it?
21:54 Suburbicon is a recent movie that apparently bombed.
21:58 G-Force is a 2009 movie that didn’t bomb.
29:50 The Santa Clause is the Citizen Kane of Christmas-themed movie trilogies.
30:28 Upgrade is apparently pretty good.
51:51 Rick and Morty is a show that represents all the bad things about modern American animation.

Episode 201: The Wasp in the Study with the Lead Pipe

Look out! A Wasp!

At the end of this recording session, around 1 in the morning, after recording Zenith, we both walked to our cars. We looked at each other, dead inside, dead on the outside. Just dead all around. “Never again.” It’s The Unicorn and the Wasp, written by Gareth Roberts and aired on May 17, 2008.


Show-notes:


2:36 Cluedo is the original name. According to Wikipedia, it’s a play on the words “clue” and “ludo” which means “I play” in Latin. It was changed to Clue in North America because over here the traditional game of Ludo is known as Parcheesi, so most people wouldn’t get the reference.
4:30 Unicron.
5:12 Ego the Living Planet is a sentient planet from Marvel. I don’t read comics and I try to stay away from comic book movies but I think this guy was in Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2.
5:25 We have a Blake’s 7 podcast called Zenith. It’s alright.
14:57 The Last Man wasn’t Mary Shelley’s second book. I’ve never read this thing at apparently it was mostly ignored in favor of Frankenstein, but it’s starting to get a lot more attention recently.
19:51 According to these bee and wasp articles, wasps can’t grow their stingers back.
21:24 This is what wasp hives look like. Not as cool as bee hives. Another category wasps completely fail in when put up against bees.
23:52 Here’s how you make a Harvey Wallbanger.
32:53 It was actually a mental disability basketball team, but same deal.Spain confirmed for huge cheaters. (Couldn’t find the article.)
34:05 Arsene Lupin is just some guy.

Episode 124: A Blueberry With Wings

Apparently butterfly = blueberry with wings. This is some high level math.

I think our episode where we talk about almost nothing is pretty representative of this week’s serial, where the characters to practically nothing. If you guessed Edge of Destruction, you’re completely wrong, it’s Black Orchid. Written by the ever illustrious Terence Dudley and aired in March of 1982.


Show-notes:


6:18 Chess boxing is what you think it is. I think. Not to be confused with checkers mma or snakes and ladders smackdown.
22:21 The first Bourne movie has one of the assassins sent to kill Bourne jump out a window hilariously when he fails his mission. Hmm… Maybe we’ll watch the Bourne trilogy for Triple Play one of these days… Nah, probably not.

Episode 93: Don’t Justify, Just Accept

Sometimes even accepting isn’t enough.

This week Kiyan and Dylan continue their Chris Boucher phase and explore his second serial in a row. That makes him just the second writer to write two consecutive serials, after Ian Stuart Black. The serial this week is The Robots of Death, aired in January and February of 1977.
