Episode 20.5: The Predator Killer

By which I mean, the Predator franchise killer is this movie.

I think it’s about time to give up on the Predator franchise. If The Predator shows the direction of the franchise, then we should really just. Pack it in. I’m not really exaggerating here. Go and watch it if you don’t believe me. No really. Go. Then come back and listen to us talk about The Predator, directed by Shane Black and released on September 14, 2018.


Show-notes:


2:24 The Nice Guys was the last movie that Shane Black directed and is probably at least five times better than The Predator.
3:13 Fred Decker’s filmography includes some “cult hit” horror movies from the 80s, like The Monster Squad.
5:33 I’ve seen stranger things than Stranger Things.
6:37 I’ve seen things more expansive than The Expanse.
6:42 Our other podcasts, Trust Your Doctor and Zenith, have been recognized for being the two greatest podcasts of all time.
7:26 I’ve seen things chuckier than Chuck.
7:46 And The Book of Henry wasn’t book-y or henry-y enough. Come on, Colin.
10:48 Here are trailers for Aquaman, Shazam (starring Zachary Levi), Venom, Serenity (not Plymouth, dunno why I thought it was called that), Overlord, and Alita.
15:13 Props to Henry Jackman for making a good soundtrack for this shitty movie.
20:31 I’ve been meaning to watch Arrival for 2 years.

Episode 210: Long Live the King

Can you believe we finally got a Lion King/Doctor Who crossover?

This week we do a total reboot of the podcast. Complete restart. Everything is going straight back to the beginning, we’re starting it all over. We’ve scrapped the format. We’ve started again. As the show is too! It’s The Eleventh Hour, written by Steven Moffat and aired on April 3, 2010.


Show-notes:


10:18 What I Did In My Christmas Holidays By Sally Sparrow is a story by Stephen Moffat and the story Blink was based on. The BBC has the whole story up on this page.
11:36 Rose was the first episode filmed of the first series. After Rose they went right to Aliens of London.
13:15 All of what Framestore has done is basically up on their website, so check that out if you want to see more of what they worked on.
13:33 Early Man is about cavemen and stuff and is from Aardman Haven’t watched Early Man, or even most of their animations, but Wrong Trousers is probably still the best.
29:49 Most of the ones I saw had mini telescoping ones on the side, like this one from Amazon.
36:30 Spiral Scratch is a Sixth Doctor book by Gary Russel. I wouldn’t really recommend it.
36:38 Jellied eels are a traditional London dish. Can’t believe I can’t get them anywhere in Southern California. Anyway, they look disgusting.
40:01 Wikipedia: “A kissogram, also called kissagram (short for kissing telegram), is a message delivered along with a kiss, usually arranged as a fun surprise for a person for a special occasion.” This probably isn’t a widely-used, cause that paragraph also mentions Doctor Who.
48:19 It’s not a real company.
50:15 Matt Smith said Patrick Troughton was his favorite Doctor at Doctor Who Convention 2012.

Episode 164: Evolve or Die

Let me know if there’s a secret third option. That’d be good.

We’re on the downhill slope now. I mean, granted, this is an extremely long downhill slope that’s probably longer than the uphill section. Look, I don’t really know what the heck to call this. It’s a sideways trip. We’re moving leftwards. This week we watched Rose, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on March 26, 2005.


Show-notes:


3:04 Queer as Folk. According to Wikipedia the other shows Davies was famous for are Bob & Rose, The Second Coming, and a couple more, but I haven’t heard of any of them.
4:41 And it was this.
34:02 Spare Parts. Good audio(?) We also have an episode on it.
53:07 Check out our newly recorded episode 0 here.

Episode 0: A Pretty Good Place to Start

We’ve never really explained what we do, so we finally decided to sit down and do that!

This is a short 6-minute intro episode to the show. We realize we’re recording this after establishing a fair amount of episodes, but hey, better late than never! Hopefully this gives you a feel for the show and where to start listening.
