Have you ever seen that Disney Christmas special, “Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas?” I remember owning it on DVD as a kid, but I actually for some reason remember thinking that the sequel, “Mickey’s Twice Upon a Christmas” was better. I don’t know why I remember this. I’m not sure anybody else even agrees with me. It’s Once, Upon Time, written by Chris Chibnall and aired on November 14, 2021.

1:07: Dylan (I) obviously meant “John perTWEE and Joffery Beevers.” Also, the guy whose name we mispronounced for the entirety of The Prisoner (on Inevitable: A Classic Sci-Fi Podcast) was George Markstein.
15:02: It is actually called the uvula, I was being serious!
34:32: Tamagotchis still exist, so if you want one for yourself you can easily go and get one now. (Editor’s note: so do the Digimon v-pets.)
35:16: I’ve tried to find a reference for Box before with no avail, so I’ll see if Kiyan wants to try. (Editor’s note: I don’t know what this means, but check out Triple Play: A Movie Trilogy Podcast.)
36:13: The “The World If” meme.
36:34: The title of Episode 5 was even “Three End” because we made a pun off the future name of Triple Play.
45:05: Spoilers for two minutes from now, I’m talking about Brendan. (Editor’s note: why was this necessary? Also check out Flight Through Entirety.)
1:03:20: Don’t worry, Wikipedia will hook you up with information on Keyser Söze.
1:05:25: Not the same director, or even writer actually. Easy to get confused though.
1:17:17: Here’s that Keys of Marinus Revisited episode for you. Funny that “Three End” also covered Keys of Marinus. Is Flux a secret Keys of Marinus remake? (Editor’s note: no.)
1:25:30: Check out Firefly on Inevitable.
1:26:02: I’m reading from How Angles Really Look, so go and read about some more terrifying angels.
1:29:10: I put on my robe and wizard hat. You’re welcome.
