The Purge, The Purge: Anarchy, The Purge: Election Year

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.


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.

142: A Mining Smart Car (Vengeance on Varos)

Hey, great idea, let’s use smart cars for mining.

Moving swiftly through season 22 we come to another divisive serial. If you don’t mind me spoiling for a second, quite a few of the serials this season lead to a divide between Kiyan and Dylan, so brace yourself please. The divide this week: Vengeance on Varos, written by Philip Martin and aired in January of 1985.


1:15 Yeah, he was from Planet of the Spiders. Not sure how I remembered that. Guess you can chalk it up to my unparalleled genius, like usual.
4:00 Plug.
34:10 Yeah, I hear they usually just cut people’s heads off over there.
