SFF46: Siempre Bruja (Always a Witch)
As a follow-up to our Subtitled Sci Fi discussion, we decided to tackle one of Netflix's latest international offerings, Colombia's Siempre Bruja, or Always a Witch in English.

Netflix has been killing it with bringing international genre shows to an American audience, and after discussing Dark and The Rain on earlier editions of the podcast, we felt it was time to acknowledge a wider field of programming from around the world.

SFF44: The Umbrella Academy
In order to keep things relatively spoiler-free, we discussed only the first two episodes of The Umbrella Academy, which released on Netflix on February 15, 2019, to appeal both to those who have watched the show and those who are thinking about trying it out. As it happens, the series goes to some pretty crazy places later in the season, so we brought in a special guest, executive producer Jeff King, to tease some of where the series heads in future episodes.

SFF42: Felicia Day Interview - Voyage to the Stars
Felicia Day has explored nearly every avenue an actor can peddle their wares and even pioneered a few paths of her own when she followed up her guest appearances on Buffy the Vampire Slayer with her breakout web series The Guild back in 2007.

SFF39: The Passage
The Passage, based on the trilogy by Justin Cronin, just premiered on Fox, and we were impressed by the initial premise. On this episode of the podcast, we break down the pilot episode and ask, "Where are they going with this? Will it be a government conspiracy thriller? A vampire virus horror? Or will it evolve into a post-apocalyptic sci- series?" Regardless, this is a promising start.
