Qatsi

If we could have made this episode a tone poem we would have.

The audio quality in this episode is a little worse than normal because it was recorded quite early in quarantine (nearly a year before release) before we had figured out how to properly record these things via skype. Because of that Kiyan’s audio sounds a bit scratchy. Sorry about that. It’s unfortunate we couldn’t make it a visual poem, since maybe the visuals could distract you from the audio. Alas. What a kind of shit way to end the season of Triple Play. It’s Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi and Naqoyqatsi.

Robocop

Dead or alive you’re coming with us.

So this time we decided to watch an action movie that turns out to have actually quite complex societal implications. We also watched two other pieces of crap, so it wasn’t really just the one movie. But we did watch that movie. Did you know Paul Verhoeven responded to me on twitter? It was just Paul F. Verhoeven and not the Paul Verhoeven who directed this movie. But same thing. It’s Robocop 1, 2, and 3.

328: Tea and Biscuits and Gravy (Revolution of the Daleks)

We’re back and tastier than ever.

Have you ever had meringue on your tea? I’m thinking now, it might not be so bad. The heat from the tea could cook the bottom of the meringue kind of like a hot pie crust would do, so that would be pretty cool. You could drink it then and bury your mustache in a meringue. That’d be pretty fun actually. It’s Revolution of the Daleks, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on January 1, 2021.

327: It Says Everything it Shouldn’t and Nothing it Should (Children of Earth: Day One)

Kind of sounds like me, on the podcast.

Have we ever had a five episode serial in Doctor Who? We have, right? I’m pretty sure we did but I genuinely don’t remember any more. A lot of classic who has been completely wiped from my mind because I needed the space in my brain for other things. I can’t remember what those things were anymore. It’s Children of Earth: Day One, written by Russell T. Davies and aired on July 6, 2009.

xXx

No not that kind of xXx.

I used to be an extreme sportsman. Did you know that? Yeah it’s true, I used to do extreme podcast editing. One time we were releasing an episode of Trust Your Doctor but I Was busy skydiving, so while skydiving I took my laptop and edited while skydiving. Set a new record for highest podcast episode edited. I also set a record for fastest speed attained by someone actively editing a podcast. Yeah that was me. It’s xXx, xXx: State of the union, and xXx: The Return of Xander Cage

326: 50 Shades of Morally Grey (Exit Wounds)

Ok so this exact title doesn’t appear in the episode, sue me.

Besides, we’re covering 50 Shades of Grey on Triple Play at some point soon and it’s better not to make confusing and conflicting post titles. Yes, I’m for real serious that we’re covering that trilogy at some point. If you don’t believe me I guess you’ll just have to wait and see. It’s Exit Wounds, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on April 4, 2008.

Cars

Remember how All-Star became a meme? So did Life is a Highway.

When I saw the first movie in theatres I was in 4th grade. I know that I’m sort of in way giving away how old I ma, but hey. And then I actually saw the second one in theatres too. The third Cars movie was one of the only Pixar movies that I’ve not seen in theatres since The Incredibles (I know). Not that it really looks like I’ll be seeing any more in theatres any time soon. Alas, such is life right? It’s Cars 1, 2 and 3.

Taken

Taken’s first moment of relevance since 2008.

Ok so here’s where the schedule for this season gets really crazy because for some reason we had to find the least logical way to record these episodes. Yeah. But you know, given the current status of the world, I would actually really like someone to just… take me away. Like taken style, honestly would probably be better than the world we’re living in right now. I’ll be waiting for Liam Neeson to come and save me. It’s Taken, Taken 2 and Taken 3.
