Sci-Fi TV Podcast - The Leftovers Season 2
We're very pleased to welcome back Karen from The Walking DeadCast and Wayne from The Packers Fan Podcast to discuss Season 2 of 'The Leftovers'. Questions to consider: What did you think of this dramatic departure in location and characters for Season 2 Would you want to live in Jarden/Miracle? Favorite Scenes? Favorite Character? How about the brilliant music score, and repeated themes, in both seasons? Is Patti really gone? Predictions for Season 3? Who is David Burton? What’s the connection to Australia? Virgil (Shoot Patti) vs. Kevin Sr. (throw Patti down the well), how are Virgil and Kevin Sr. related? Predictions for Season 3? “While worldwide flooding is expected, we should be taking off before the rain begins,” “In the event of cabin decompression, place your oxygen masks over your mouths as we all prepare to take our last breaths. Please be sure to keep your seatbelt fastened, as everything you know and love will soon be gone. Flight Attendants: Please prepare for Final Departure” Rem’s Points: Jarden seems to have become a beneficiary and a hostage to the Departure (They derive a big benefit from Tourism, but are now a walled off park where people tend to repeat even mundane events, thinking they’re preventing another departure) (When the prisoner is released, the jailer also goes free) Also, if Evi’s disappearance is really a departure, would that mean that Jarden was no longer saved? Bold moves, the intro at Axis Munde, introducing the Murphy’s in a new location Foreshadowing of David Burton, Evie and the girls were secretly part of the GR Lori goes from being part of the GR to trying to destroy them Seems to be a power triad between Patti, Virgil and Kevin Sr., but who really has the power? Extro For a real deep dive into each episode, I suggest you subscribe to Jim and A-Ron’s Podcast called ‘Following the Leftovers’ over on the Bald Move Network. They go into much more depth and detail on each episode, and you’ve still got time to go through their podcast before Season 3 of The Leftovers starts on Sunday, April 16th. Find them at BaldMove.com The Walking Dead ‘Cast with Karen and Jason, where can we find you and Jason? As of this recording, we’re into the last few episodes of Season 7 and war seems to be brewing...

After that, it’s our exploration of all things BattleStar Galactica. Thanks as always for listening, and you’ll find all the show notes and contact info on the website at Sci-Fi TV Podcast.com ================================================================ Episode 1 (Axis Mundy). Prehistoric pregnant women? I was looking at purpose here or just pure chance? A bit 2001 with the classical music Very bold move! Not until the piano kicks in five minutes later do we even know that this is the leftovers Evie meets Dr. good heart who has an Australian accent Evie and the girls are silence in the car, one of the small signs we never realize that they're part of the guilty remnant (Great foreshadowing) The Murphy family seems pretty normal at first There's a cricket in the house! Crack in the road is part of the tour, as is the woman in the wedding dress Some dude is living at the top of the concrete tower Letter for David Burton in Sydney Australia We’re introduced to ‘Miracle’, Texas home of the city of Jarden, where no departures ever happened Michael is selling holy water by donation John goes to see Isaac, who does readings by hand print John asks Isaac for a reading, but Isaac sees some bad stuff Evie is in the choir, and Jordan has its own theme song Girls run naked in the forest John is on the fire department, and they torch Isaac's house Erica goes running and digs up a bird from a box in the ground, and it is still alive Michael delivers a sermon, and Matt and Mary have already come to Miracle Matt's story about Mary is interrupted by the priest, weird looks abound Dude brings a goat into a restaurant and cuts its throat Perfect strangers cast member fakes his own departure Kevin very cautiously put his hand down the drain Michael goes to see the old man, and we see that miracle is walled off with security, guards and spotlights Jon finds a pie at the door just as Kevin Nora and Jill arrive next-door John introduces himself to Nora, gives them a pie Nice barbeque John thinks that Kevin is not being truthful with them John was in prison for attempted murder The cake comes out and Evie has a seizure Earthquake in the middle of the lights, and they realize Evie is gone John and Michael find the car at the quarry, walked in music playing Water is drained out of the river Cricket chirps Episode 2 (A Matter of Geography) This is the other side of the Garvey’s move to Jarden, focusing on Kevin, Nora and Jill They’re planning to keep the baby Big confessions: Kevin tells them about Patti, and walking in his sleep, Nora hires hookers, Fast forward 2 months, Kevin doing laundry and Lily is crying like crazy, he’s got earbuds in! Kevin and Nora go to a custody hearing, and they get offered another baby ‘Where is my mind?’ is playing for Kevin Fixing washer, buys shovel and digs up Patti, gets pulled over by cop intentionally and confesses about Patti All this honesty seems to be really good for Jill, she visits with Tommy Tommy is with Lori Nora is offered 2.7 Million for her house, MIT wants to research her house because of its anomalous nature MIT thinks Geography is a factor, and Nora could have departed if she was sitting at the table instead Cop questions Kevin about Patti’s death, and the cop seemed very eager to close the case Kevin gets his first visit from Patti Kevin Sr. was released and is planning to go to Australia They move to Jarden (Miracle National Park) Dogs need to be quarantined Kevin meets old man, who invites Kevin to come see him ‘about his situation’ The house they planned to rent had burned down, was it the one John burned down? Nora spontaneously buys house for 3 million, Kevin is a bit stunned They camp out the first night The family takes possession of the house, Kevin has a fight with Patti John brings the Garvey’s a pie Merge into the Birthday party for John Kevin flips out over a lightbulb, apologizes to Nora Kevin wakes up at the river which is now drained, finds himself tied to a concrete block. Goes to Evie’s empty car, puts hand on window. Leaves as John and Michael drive up in the truck looking for Evie. (Did they choose this spot thinking it might be a good spot for departures to happen? Episode 3 (Off Ramp) Crazy drum intro, Lori washing her car Tommy has infiltrated the GR, rescues woman named Susan Lori is writing a book, setting up an office and and space for people to stay Tommy brings Susan to GR support group Video of Holy Wayne at his beginning Tommy is drinking, not doing so well Lori talks to douchy landlord, he doesn’t want people staying at the office GR member go to Lori’s meeting and try to intimidate them News story about a guy name David Buron, resurrecting from a cave is on the TV as Tommy returns home Lori arrives at office to find all their stuff out on the street and her laptop with her book is missing Lori breaks into Landlord’s house, steal back the laptop, the runs over two of the GR standing on the road in front of her Tommy tries to recruit the wrong woman, she blows the whistle on him (literally) and he get chained up in a truck. Meg comes, has sex with him, and threatens to set him on fire Lori buys a new dress for a meeting with a publisher Tommy is very traumatized by the event Susan trying to return to her normal life, but it’s not working. On the highway, she steers her vehicle into oncoming traffic, killing herself and family During the meeting with the publisher, they mention a guy in Australia who believes he can’t die (David Burton?) Lori attacks the publisher Lori wonders why they’re failing, Tommy says it’s because they not offering people anything, so they take the Holy Wayne story and apply it to Tommy Episode 4 (Orange Sticker) Earthquake! Nora is alone and Kevin isn’t home Evi’s gone, and Nora thinks the departure might have happened again She faints, tries to connect to anyone, ‘did the departure happen again’? Kevin comes back Patti “looks like you have some explaining to do, sport’ Kevin tells Nora and Jill exactly what happened when he woke up in a drained river. Very refreshing to see the honesty! Search party starts looking for the girls at the river, Kevin searches for his phone Jill gets Michael to help fix the sink. Romance is brewing! Nora meets John’s Dad while buying Whiskey & Cigarettes (He’s like an old Danny Glover) Patti helps Kevin find his phone in the drained river, tells him not to get in the truck with John John takes Kevin to the motel where Isaac is staying, and John shoots Isaac. Kevin takes John back and Erica patches him up Patti tell Kevin about her ex, and his ‘interests’ Nora has a drink with Jill, confronts Matt about Jarden, is it real? Matt says Mary woke up one night! Patti finally gets Kevin to talk to her (Rick Astley) Tower guy asks who’s your friend? (Song from Grease “Better shape up”) Michael scrapes orange sticker off their house Episode 5 (No Room at the Inn) Somewhat Matt Centric, montage of him taking care of Mary Matt takes Mary on a doctor’s appo

Sci-Fi TV Podcast - The Leftovers Season 1
The Leftovers Show Notes - Season 1 Welcome to the very first episode of The Sci-Fi TV Podcast, my name is Rem and to help us get started, we’re very happy to welcome Karen, one half of the most popular Walking Dead Podcast on the planet, the Walking Dead ‘Cast. And a big welcome to Wayne Henderson, from the Packers Fan Podcast, 11.22.63 A Look Back, and another mysterious tv fan podcast later in 2017. On our first episode, we’re talking about Season 1 of the HBO series The Leftovers. We’re doing two catch you up episodes to refresh you for the 3rd and final season which begins Sunday April 16th on HBO. We’ll spoil everything in season 1, but not season 2, so you have a chance to catch up on season 2 before we do our next episode. Might be a bit of language here too, Questions to consider: What first got you watching The Leftovers? The Damon Lindelof factor (Lost!) Will we ever know the reason for the departure? What else is coming? Favorite Scene? Favorite Character? What other unanswered questions do you have? Dean the dog shooter. Angel? What’s with his truck? What does Kevin and Kevin Sr. have specifically? Is it that they’re resisting spiritual guidance? Did the GR use real bodies or mannequins? Thanks to Karen and Wayne for joining us, and we’ll be back with a look at season 2 in early March as we make our way to the third and final episode of The Leftovers. Get all the show notes, video clips and more on the website at Sci-Fi TV Podcast.com ==================================================================== Episode 1 (Pilot) Tunefind.com That song! “Retrograde” by James Blake Kevin and his up in the laundromat with a crying baby in season two like the woman did at the beginning of season one - Jill might act out less if Kevin actually told her what he was feeling and going through. She acts out because she's not being included or talked to. (Kevin won't tell her not to go to the Memorial) - What so obviously seems like the Christian rapture is being denied by Matt the Priest Tom reading ‘The stranger, by Albert Camus lots of quick jarring cuts gives you the sense that there's tension and immediate danger just under the surface Empty picture frames - The kids have lost all sense of meaning and purpose, and have become hedonistic. Dogs, Deer and assorted animals. Kevin keeps waking up on the floor Tommy screaming under water Dog shooter at end, 'don’t just stand there'. What caused the dogs to go crazy? Matt as the Job of the Bible Episode 2 (Penguins one, us zero) Did Dean the dog shooter just give the black pickup truck to Kevin? Can't reconcile the black truck and how Dean would just give it to him Chopping down the tree, is that to demonstrate the nature of futility? Why did Nora push the cup off the table? Episode 3 (Two boats and a helicopter) Stop light goes from green straight to read and then flashes red, and pigeons on top of the street light Matt has the awesome creepy dream sequence! Episode 4 (BJ and the AC) Baby Jesus stolen Christine accosted by naked guy: ‘ you walk over the dead, they're all in white’, ‘I know what's inside you’ Kevin tries to arrest the GR, for trespassing at the school Kevin almost crashes car, loses control of it Kevin driving black truck now? Jill almost torching BJ, felt dark and sacrilegious Tom takes Christine to hospital Lori tries to serve divorce to Kevin by Meg reading a note from Lori Jill gives Lori a lighter The Twins return the BJ On the bus, Tom and Christine find dead bodies in white all over the road, like the naked guy said Kevin meets Nora (moments of brutal honesty) Kevin and cops mass arrest the GR The rest of the GR is breaking into homes and stealing pictures (also brutal considering what happens later in the season Kevin finds Matt replacing the BJ, and throws his away. Lori tries to get light from gutter Episode 5 (Gladys) Gladys seems to be agreeing to something with Patty Gladys and another GR walked past a man who has fallen, they offer no help Gladys is kidnapped, strapped to a tree, and stoned to death One of the hardest death scenes of any TV show to watch Then Dean shoots some dogs? Kevin has lost a bunch of his shirts We learned that Dean actually exists, and is not one of Kevin's hallucinations Kevin tells Jill about the GR person who died. Jill thought it was her mom, Kevin explained everything, finally being a good communicative parent Lori has a panic attack and goes to the hospital Patty picks up Lorene from the hospital and take her to a hotel, plays the radio! Kevin calls the ATF and leaves a message to be called back Laurie and Patty have breakfast and Patty chats up a storm! Kevin runs into Nora at the laundromat, they don't have his shirts Kevin questions Matt, asked if he was involved in Gladys is murder Patty gives a speech to Laurie [grab the audio] 35:00 Patty writes the name Neil on a bag Sean: he gets Gladys's body shipped to Virginia, Kevin leaves another message and Taras him a new one Patty leaves a bag on Neil's doorstep Kevin is having issues with the house alarm Kevin talks to the agent finally, and the agent makes a dark suggestion that seems to indicate doing away with the GR (illuminate the infestation), something like what happened to Wayne's compound The agent offers to send troops to wipe out the guilty remnant Kevin gets loaded, buys more beer, then goes and harasses the laundromat guy Meg has stopped talking, dressed in white and rights to Patty that she is ready Matt sets up a public address system outside the guilty remnant house, Laurie goes out with a whistle and blows it in his face Matt seemed so hopeful when Laurie came out, poor guy takes such a shit kicking Kevin tells Jill about the divorce, and she seems to really appreciate that he actually talked to her, Kevin weeps into a pillow Switch to a facility where Gladys's body is removed from the box and cremated This is the saddest episode of the entire series Episode 6 (Guest) Nora Centric Nora conducts interviews for Benefits recipients She spies on the pre-school teacher to was having affair with her husband Nora hires a prostitute to shoot her (Blasting music) Nora goes to court to file for divorce, runs into Kevin, who is also getting a divorce...she invites him to Miami Nora meets with co-worker, he queries how she asks a particular question (Question 121 “In Nora goes to conference, has to wade through a protest, and finds someone has stolen her conference ID She meets super douchy guy named Marcus, and she really doesn’t care what he does Confronts a woman who she thinks took her badge, but it’s not her Nora makes out with Marcus’ body double Hotel security kicks her out of the hotel She goes to a copy store and makes a fake ID Goes back to the hotel and confronts the woman who stole her identity Nora meets the guy who wrote the book (Patrick Johanson) and flips out on him Meets tall bald guy who takes her to see Holy Wayne Nora goes shopping for her own groceries instead of her family Kevin asks Nora out on a date Nora does another interview, asks question 121 ‘In your opinion, do you believe _______________ is in a better place? Nora’s ‘yes’ streak is broken. Episode 7 (Solace for tired feet) Jill and friends are taking turns doing the refrigerator challenge Nora and Kevin on fourth date, and they’re gonna do it! Jill gets stuck, and her grandfather breaks her out Tommy and Christine are in Gary, Indiana Holy Wayne call Tom, tells him to take some money to one of his other concubines Jill tells Kevin that his dad escaped, Kevin doesn’t tell Jill anything...constantly, very frustrating Kevin has a dream of the dog shooter, he’s got a dog in a mailbox and dead GR members in the truck (including Lori) Kevin wakes up with bandaged hand on the floor, and do tied up in back yard Doesn’t look like a dog bite, more a human bite Kevin’s dad busted up a library, seems he was trying to get hold of a National Geographic for Kevin Tommy take half his money and gives it to the the other couple hosting Wayne’s other baby Jill’s Grandpa shows up at home, and talks to Jill (He actually talks to her) Kevin arrives, arrests Grandpa (Kevin Sr.) Jill orders something online Kevin doesn’t remember getting the dog or talking to Amy Kevin Sr. is with Matt, and Kevin is losing it. Tom learns about Wayne baby franchise and almost gets shot Kevin Sr. meets Kevin at diner, gives him NG magazine, Kevin refuses (May 1972 issue of National Geographic) Kev. Sr. says ‘You need to accept it’. Is Kevin on the Hero’s Journey in the Joseph Campbell sense? Matt tries to quote scripture, Kevin tells him to fuck off. Kevin goes to Nora’s, and they make the sweet love! Meg tells Lori that Kevin is with Nora, Lori says ‘so?’ Kevin tells Nora he thinks he might be going crazy Kevin finds NG magazine that Jill ordered, flips out on Jill Wayne calls Tom, Tom throws the phone against the wall, goes home to see Christine has given birth to a baby girl Episode 8 (Cairo) Patti is bringing stuff to the church (laying out clothes), Kevin is cooking dinner (laying out a tablecloth and napkins) Patty give a pile of money to Lor, asks ‘Ready’? Nora has dinner with the Garvey’s, Jill asks Nora about her gun Nice to see some romance as a doom buffer Kevin wakes up in his car in the woods (at a cabin with Dean the dog shooter) Uh, oh….Patti is tied to a chair in a cabin, much to Kevin’s absolute surprise! Meg goes thermal on Matt for one of his posters Kevin can’t remember anything, Dean explains Patti’s abduction to him They’re in Cairo, New York Patti will not forgive or forget Lori disciplines Meg against violence (This is Meg’s turning point, I believe) We learn Meg’s mom died Oct. 13th, the day before the departure Meg apologizes to Matt, he accepts...this guy is a saint! Jill and Amy fight, Jill accuses Amy of sleepi

Movie News: Jonathan: Debate and controversy over Sulu being gay. Should it matter? Rem: Latest on Alien 5 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Movies to see: Jonathan: Fantastic Voyage (1966) Rem: Circle (2015) and The Real History of Science Fiction --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Movies To Avoid: Jonathan and Rem: Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Listener Feedback Ton de Witte I don't care if Sulu is gay or not, like it is in the normal world. people are what they are. Saw deadpool on Blu ray now that was a funny entertaining movie, highly recommended. Ray R As for the Sulu thing it's seem a tough call to me but I have to come down ever so slightly on Takei's side here. I think it's changing Gene's vision of the character. Pegg responds to Takei's comments saying they picked an established character so we would already know the character and accept the character - frankly I think Pegg is underestimating the audience, we don't need to be made to like a character and then find out they're gay. I think for once society is ahead of Star Trek on this one and it wouldn't be blinked at to have a character be gay, I think this is only noteworthy because it's changing an existing character. I like the fact that they say it's normalized in the movie, like it's no big deal, but I'd prefer the real-world side of things had been equally normalized with a new character rather than what seems to a sort of strategy or trick to get people to like a gay Star Trek character. We don't need a trick, we need good writing and a good performance, that's what makes the difference between a token character and a 3 dimensional one. Scott Buchanan Saw Independence Day 2016 and I'll admit it was sloppy, trashy fun. When I saw it, it was exactly the mindless spectacle i needed to take my mind off other things. John Sheehy Star Trek movies can hit the ground running because while it is a reboot the characters are already defined for us, and they evolve to new events. They don't have the time to do something meaningful like the DS9 episode Rejoined, which focused on a society defining what is allowed and banning other types of loving relationships and this episode challenged views through storytelling. Dark Tower…. That story be slow but I'll stick with it based on last month's encouragement to get through to the other books. Been mostly re-watching Mr Robot - Season 1 and had very little sci-fi this month expect for the incredibly fun and enjoyable movie that is Independence Day ….. Yes I watched the 1996 again and I think I did myself a favour because I have a podcast to watch these terrible movies and create reviews that are probably more entertaining than actually having to watch the movie ….bit like a MST3K The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast is a member of the Podcastica Network, visit Podcastica.com The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast is partially funded by Patreon.

The new format contains a lot of spoilers of newer movies that I haven't seen yet. Alicia Postigo Hey guys, I just listened to the last podcast and Jonathan got the pronunciation of my last name right the first time, just FYI. Keep up the awesome pod-casting. Ray R I'd love to hear your thoughts on the whole Ghostbusters fiasco. There doesn't seem to be much redeeming about the movie except for Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong, Chris Hemsworth, Andy Garcia, and Nate Corddry all but one of whom appear to be minor characters. Previously I had no intention of seeing the film because it just doesn't look like it would be any good but I've actively soured on the film since the internet lost it's mind over James Rolfe not wanting to see it. http://cinemassacre.com/2016/05/17/ghostbusters-2016-no-review-i-refuse/ The backlash to Rolfe's completely reasonable video that has nothing to do with gender has made it such that if you don't want to see Ghostbusters you're automatically sexist regardless of your reasons. I plan to have a movie marathon weekend when Ghostbusters comes out and see every other movie in theatres except Ghostbusters while wearing my Cinemassacre t-shirt. A quiet protest for the voice of reason. If I go see Finding Dory on Ghostbuster's opening for reasons having nothing to do with gender or identity am I still sexist? Do people really reveal the content of their character by the movies they watch? Liz Irwin The level of anticipation I have towards The Dark Tower movie is hard to quantify. I truly believed nobody would ever try to make it into a movie or series. It's an epic tale and I'm beyond thrilled with the casting of Roland, a little nervous regarding McConaughey. Nick Jensen I love the Dark Tower series, well the first four are amazing, but as far as the movie goes I'm not really holding my breath. History has shown that Hollywood has not been able to adapt King well at all, unless your name is Frank Darabont or Rob Reiner, and being as expansive and non-traditional as the Dark Tower is I could see this not working out. That being said, I will probably see it because I'm a huge Stephen King fan. The movie I'm most looking forward to is Jason Bourne, I know it's not sci-fi but it's the one I'm looking forward to the most, and I'm still very interested in Suicide Squad even though I'm getting a bit of comic book movie fatigue. Movies to avoid: Goosebumps, loved the books as a kid and picked it up to watch while drinking a couldn't finish it; Legend with Tom Hardy, not sci-fi but I love Tom Hardy but could only watch about 30 minutes of this there was no storyline whatsoever, very disappointing. John Sheehy John Sheehy I've been looking forward to the Ghostbusters since I first heard about it. Don't know if Starbuck is going to make a cameo but this cast have made some really good comedy movies. Whatever this thing on the internet is I've been trying to ignore it, I'm going to blindly call both sides idiots, the movie isn't out yet. Disappointed with X-Men, it seems flat and I felt it's been twisted in the direction of a Young Adult Franchise Cash-cow. Warcraft is the best collection of actors to ever have we want to leave a movie….a few nice moments but it was tough going. The King and Queen however do look promising in the first episode of Preacher….Ruth Negga was in an Irish cult hit and delighted to see her get bigger roles than just helping Brad Pitt figure out how to stop Zombie's My Sci-fi recommendation is for everyone to watch Repo Men for all the health care questions and I'm also going to recommend Eye in the Sky. (Drone movie with Helen Mirren et al) I think we all grew up watching movies exploring how we will react and use technology in the future and this movie follows a familiar approach. Also it serves as a reminder that we are now living in the not-to-distant future when we can wage war from thousands of miles. Please spend some time to consider that rather than on an internet tantrum over a reboot. I don't just mean the war aspect but also, if Eye in the Sky was released 20/30 years ago it would have been classed as a Sci Fiction and today it's just mainstream drama. US Army Video MAV - Micro Aerial Vehicles https://youtu.be/_5YkQ9w3PJ4 Regarding the format change: Chris Williams I loved the new format, you guys are excellent. Something I would enjoy is a section for good indie/smaller film recommendations. Movies you have enjoyed that we may not have heard of. Anyway thanks for all of the effort you put it, fantastic show :) Michael Simshauser Can't say I'm a fan of the new format. Firstly although I wonder if a name change to the podcast maybe in order ? A majority of the beginning of the show was dedicated to talking about Warcraft and Captain America-Civil War. While I am interested in seeing Warcraft and have already seen Civil War, to me they are Fantasy and Superheroes and strictly not Science Fiction. I applaud you for trying something new but I believe it needs more tweaking especially if you are looking at expansion. And the echo that was on Rem's audio throughout the episode also detracted from the episode as well. I have been listening to you guys for awhile now and have found many great films and podcasts because of your podcast and I hope that you can return to your halcyon days soon. Robert Sedler I prefer the old format, mostly because I could easily avoid spoilers by selecting episodes for films I had seen, skipping any and all discussion of films I had not seen yet. Because I really dislike modern movie theaters (mostly because of modern movie audiences) I won't be seeing films like CA:CW or Deadpool until I can rent them. When the discussion this week covered these films I heard a spoiler or two and was then forced to pull the plug on this week's podcast. I appreciate the need to evolve, but I really do prefer a more in-depth look at one film rather than covering so many at a time. Will Neville Sorry guys, but I think I prefer the old format as well. Spoilers are the main issue for me. Is there anything you guys can do about that? Perhaps a spoiler-free version? Other podcasts that I listen to do this. A great example is the Game of Thrones The Podcast by Bald Move. They provide a separate spoiler-free episode that only discusses the TV show and none f the book spoilers. Hans-Kristian Moslund First - you guys are rock-stars, really enjoy the show. And thank you for taking the risk to explore new frontiers, and bold. :-). .. . What worked for me in the new format; - reminded me a bit of a great hang-out with friends, talking about movies - i loved Jonathan doing the interview - i liked that you talked about 'new stuff' coming up, and also some visits to the pasts (what to re-watch and what to avoid) - in general - your podcast is the best Sci-Fi show in town, defacto the gold standard. - great with guests, but really enjoy having 2 key hosts. Some ideas that I could suggest for consideration ; - maybe introduce a bit more tight format with 3-4 sections, without losing the great relaxed setting - suggestions could be : what's coming up / what are you guys excited about. What have you rewatched and enjoyed (with the same format as before the change - but like 20 min or so). - And I would really really like a "series pilot episodes rewatch", where you looked into the premise for a new, old, failed series (the castle, expanse, bsg, dr.who, the 100, B5, dome etc.etc) and also discussed what universe / worldview the serie represented. - have a 5 - 10 min "fun" segment, discussing "biggest ships", "biggest guns", "strangest creature", "stupidst plot", "best suit". Sci Fi technology that has become real, or coming. - Also, suggest the "top 3-5" things that our friends from "game of microphone" uses when you review stuff. - there are a lot of podcast about 'super guys movies' (e.g. total geekcall), you are the kings of sci-fi, so i have you as nr 1 podcast for that reason. the super guys stuff also is fun, but I would always hope to hear more about sci-fi than su

What We're Looking Forward To: Kyran: - The New Warcraft Movie https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/start Bonnie: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Jonathan: Star Trek Beyond Rem: Alien: Covenant Neil Blomkamp's Alien 5 What We've Seen Recently Deadpool and Captain America: Civil War Here's a Sci-Fi Classic to Watch Kyran: Ender's Game (2013) Bonnie: The Black Hole (1979) Jonathan: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) Rem: Demon Seed (1977) Here's a Sci-Fi Clunker to avoid Kyran: They Live (1988) Jonathan: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) Rem: The Box (2009) Listener Feedback Hans-Kristian Moslund Looking forward to; “star trek beyond”, as I actually really like the reboot. And did I read that the tv-series are starting again? Wonder how that is going to be. x-men apocalypse” is also on my budget. I didn’t really enjoy civil-war, so I am betting on Apocalypse to get me excited. I actually look forward to compare “apocalypse” with “dawn-of-justice”, so I can make up my mind if I am to stay on team DC, or shift to team Marvel. Want to watch; Might want to rewatch “dark city” again, haven’t seen it since release, but would really like to explore in hindsight if that actually was a good movie or not. I am not really sure what to expect here. Avoid; not sure – but how about a recommendation. I got into “the expanse” series – and liked it. I would actually really appreciate to hear the Sci-Fi gurus take on “essential Sci-Fi series”. Ton de Witte Looking forward : Dr. Strange Recently : X men days of future past, I just didn't get around to watching the blu ray but because Age of Apocalypse came out I thought it time Classic : blade runner which of the 5 versions I don't know. Avoid: I rarely avoid a sci fi movie but one of the worst I have seen was Star crash I think however that I might like it now as a camp movie. Jordan at The Night Time Podcast says: @ScifiMovieGuys i'd love to see more classic film discussion, and of course more episodes. how about return of the living dead?

Sci Fi Movie Podcast - The Road
Help support The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast by becoming a Patron! Hosted by Remi Lavictoire and Jonathan Colbon Get the Sci-Fi Movie Podcast Archive for 5 Bucks! This week on The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast, Jonathan and Rem discuss The Road from 2009 and directed by John Hillcoat. Listener Feedback Liz Irwin This is one of those incredibly depressing movies. It was a really well done film but not one I can watch more than once. Sue Lavictoire Read the book and saw the movie only years ago and as usual they were different but they were good. Robert Sedler The Road is one of the best post-apocalyptic films to come out of a genre that's had its fair share of both highs and lows. Bleak, colorless, and unforgiving, the raw landscape of the world is all too believable. Add some fantastic acting performances into the mix and you have essential Sci--Fi viewing. (Great Podcast, guys, keep up the good work!) Jordan Bonaparte A dark and painful movie/book to watch/read, as a father I find some beauty in the relationship between the main characters, but as a human living amongst other humans I find the story and setting very believable, and that's scary as hell. I would say this is a much watch for anyone into dystopian fiction... Beautifully tragic. Seth Heasley Love it, but don't really want to watch it again. Being a father, this hits really close to home. Josh Adams (from the ‘I Hate Critics’ Podcast) For all of the critical talk about despair, drab colors, and lack of life in The Road, I found quite a bit to hold onto. Viggo Mortensen's performance as the father, doing everything he can to maintain some semblance of reality for his child, is completely unheralded. Maybe it's his gaunt frame, maybe it's his piercing visage, but I found a new depth to him as an actor that Eastern Promises and Lord of the Rings had previously not roused in me. I found myself in his shoes, feeling the tension the entire film, waiting for something awful to happen to him or his son. That tension and the bleak nature of the world around them lent more power to the few glimpses of joy the film gives them. When you consider the post-apocalyptic genre, substance usually sits in the far back with respect to style. Director John Hillcoat crafted a substantive film from Cormac McCarthy's novel that I felt a part of, bleak or not. It is a film that I felt was far more what our current world would produce than The Walking Dead or something similar. I hate to speak of this feeling as something only I own, but the father-son dynamic between Mortensen and Smit-McPhee is, I feel, an excellent representation of all the feelings all fathers have for their sons. The need to protect, the need to teach, the need to pass on. Those 'survivalist' feelings, to me, run parallel to the way our world has always been, and the film seems to understand that. Ergo, as the father and the son go, so does the world. It's not a feeling exclusive to parents, or fathers for that matter, but it's certainly something I feel strongly about, and something that seems to be instinctive. I love this film, and I feel very strongly that it is an unheralded, subtle masterpiece. Alicia Postigo Hey guys! First, I love your show. Second, I enjoyed this this movie very much - of course I love Viggo Mortensen so I'm not very objective. The movie is very touching. I was surprised when I first saw it because I don't usually dig post-apocalyptic movies, but the father-son relationship got me. My favorite quote is "You carry the fire [What fire?] The one inside you."

Sci-Fi Movie Podcast - Sunshine
Help support The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast by becoming a Patron! Hosted by Remi Lavictoire and Jonathan Colbon Get the Sci-Fi Movie Podcast Archive for 5 Bucks! This week on The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast, Jonathan and Rem discuss Sunshine from 2007 and directed by Danny Boyle. Listener Feedback Jennifer RobertsonI did like this movie, even though it was a bit of a slow burn. I don't think it is Boyle's best movie but I did like the casting, especially Cillian Murphy and and Captain America. My biggest problem with the movie is that it uses ideas from sci-fi movies that Boyle loves in a way that makes them feel "copied" rather than "inspired". When the crew found out the captain of the first mission went all biblical and they all died I thought I was watching Event Horizon. All in all I would call the film a bit of a miss, but I forgive it a lot because I think Danny Boyle put a lot into it. (Except research about how the sun works, apparently!!) Paul DudleyReally enjoyed the first two thirds of this movie . However the last third when it turned into a gory slasher type movie put me off . Ton de WitteEntertaining movie but the last slasher part could have been left out. Clear inspiration from classic sci fi movies and that makes it a strange mix so the movie lacks its own identity. Not the best sci fi movie but nice enough to watch it. Doug FergusonSunshine was a rare treat in the theatres; a visual masterpiece. The tone is one of the strongest points of the film, a mix of wonderment and high tension. The third act falters a bit, but it didn't ruin the movie for me.Though I am a little sick of the trope of religious people being insane and sabotaging missions in the name of God. It's too easy and paints a very negative picture of people of faith.

Batman V Superman Quick Chat
Help support The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast by becoming a Patron! Hosted by Remi Lavictoire and Jonathan Colbon Get the Sci-Fi Movie Podcast Archive for 5 Bucks! This week on The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast, Jonathan and Rem have a quick chat about Batman V Superman. The Positive Very much a movie geared toward an audience that is already knowledgeable in the Batman and Superman lore. The Negative This isn't a Marvel movie. It's darker and and doesn't have to light, quippy dialogue you'll find in the Marvel movies. If you don't know the comics, it'll be tougher to follow the story. Listener Feedback Audrey SrodI enjoyed your chat. As a non-comic book reader, I did not enjoy this movie. I found the first 75% of the film to suck and the last 25% was ok. I did like Holly Hunter and Wonder Women. I give DC credit for doing something new, we have never seen Superman die before. I am was intrigued enough by the end that I may see the next film that comes about. Question-? Superman is going to comeback to life, so how will Clark Kent explain that he is alive to non-family members, i.e. Perry White?John SheehyThis movie starts with convection of character and intimacy in relationships and then you realize an hour has past and nothing has happened. I liked that the three leads believed in what they were doing but wonder woman does nothing but walk around, the change from enemies to bff was ridiculously quick and superman's death is completely hollow as its common knowledge that he will back for lots more movies...Awful Movie? ... YesEssential Viewing... Definitely. (that's a first)There are so many good things in this movie for me ruined by the decisions to jam in characters and jump start the DC bandwagon MCU.2 needlessly destroyed buildings out of 10 Hans-Kristian MoslundThank you for putting the chat up there - I enjoyed your thoughts on this one. I grew up as a DC fan - left the universe in my early 20ties , and briefly picked up interest again with "death of superman". I really liked this movie, and to me a couple of points came across very clear. This was really meant to be a comic-book in a movie format, and the key scenes still stuck in my head framed as classic comic books boxes. The overload of heroes and fights ---- well, that is actually what I saw in my old comics Also, this was absolutely more for the DC fans than the critics, and I was happy with the gamble the franchise took – must more daring and relevant that the other boring superman stuff from the past. No doubt that viewers new to the universe struggled. I must admit that i had to do some research after viewing to full understand some of the points - but that is actually ok for me. Anyways, I think that the platform is now established, and o-boy – can not wait to see what is in store for us.

This week on The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast, Jonathan and Rem finally talk about the movie Rem has been resisting, 'Dude, Where's my Car?', from 2000 and directed by Danny Leiner. Initial Ratings (0 to 10)Jonathan: 3.0 Shibby'sRem: -12 raised to the power 9 Special Treaters The Positive Jonathan enjoyed this movie, and Rem only begrudgingly watched it this week. Dude had a few laugh worthy moments and it'll have a strong nostalgia pull for people who saw it when they were younger. The Negative The target viewer here is a 10 boy, so older audiences won't relate. It's not a great movie, and you'll have to turn off your brain to enjoy it. Verdict Certainly not essential viewing, but it's got a few laughs. If you're over 15 year old, skip it. The Survivor Fans Podcast with Jo Ann & Stacy More information about Trepanning Listener Feedback Luca FenuIremember seeing it, but honestly nothing else beside a general sense of amusement... Was there any sci-fi there??? really? Ray RAliens and Brent Spiner - it's scifi... I saw this with Jon. We were on our first road trip to the US and stopped to see this at a semi-abandoned mall. A fight broke out in the theatre before the movie started and people were arrested so we felt we were getting the authentic american movie-going experience. When the guys jump into Brent Spiner's compound and proclaim "there's something very Canadian about this place" we were the only ones who laughed - it was awkward. After the movie we couldn't find his car. We didn't watch this movie, we lived it. Doug FergusonIt's been too long since I've seen this to have much to say, but I'm just really entertained that you guys are actually reviewing it. Ton de WitteDefinitely not high scifi art, but it has aliens in it and some funny moments. Dude where's my podcast? Steve FergusonI can't help but love this film, and see it as the heir apparent to the Bob Hope / Bing Crosby "Road" movies ("Road To Bali", "Road To Rio", etc). Just...without the singing. Accept it's a silly comedy, and you'll be just fine. Actually, maybe it should have been a musical. That would have been something...right? Cory MetcalfeYeah, it's a bit stupid but I liked this movies. It made me laugh.

Rem loved the cast, and Oscar Isaac in particular. Jonathan really enjoyed the music score, and found it perfect for the mood of the story being told. The Negative Ex Machina is not a fast paced action movie, and requires the viewer to really pay attention. In a world of bigger and faster, it might be tough to watch by younger audiences. Verdict Possibly one of the most important films we've discussed on The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast. This is a fascinating exploration about the relationship between Humanity and Technology, and it's one of our best examples of essential Sci-Fi viewing.

Jennifer RobertsonOf all the possible fears there are in the sci-fi universe, robots and AI are not high on my threat list. I've seen how far we have come in robot technology (and it is underwhelming to say the least) and if my predictive text and auto correct on my cell phone is any indication, the AI isn't that much ahead of it. Bandrew ScottThis is one of those films that prove, you don't need large casts, huge sets, or massive explosions to make a good film. This is a prime example of what can be accomplished with good vision. Not only is the story telling amazing, but the set design is gorgeous, the special effects are seamless, and the acting is as flawless as you can get. All around, one of my favorite SciFi films of all time. Absolutely essential SciFi viewing. Jamie PiperLove this film , it's deep thought provoking and haunting. Special effects are great on such a small budget and Oscar issacs dance scene is the best . As for robots leading to humanity's down fall , who cares if their this hot ! Great work on the podcast guys , still the best ! Russ LaytonSurrogates Erik FetenI enjoyed it, but it didn't bowl me over the way it did for so many others. I may have gone into it with too many expectations. Michael SimshauserWill most likely be watching this weekend as its a 99c rental on ITunes Australia. Nick JensenMarrying robots? Probably, I think a guy in Japan legally married a sex pillow so this is definitely in our future. This movie is amazing, it embodies what great sci-fi should be; awesome thought provoking story with amazing special effects. Love when an original movie like this comes around, makes me proud to be a sci-fi fan. James Rogershaunting future...goooood movie Jim GoodmanI didn't enjoy this film as much as I wanted to. I had heard nothing but good things about it before seeing it. For me this is just another Frankenstein retelling with a fresh CGI coat of paint. Good performances and beautiful sets did not make up for this 200 year old story that has been done to death. Bobby RafuseWell, after watching for the first time with my brother today I can say we were both digging from start to end. Great performances from the cast. I'm now going to have to check out the anime it's based from Appleseed. As for the question of AI. I think it's a door we probably shouldn't be knocking on so quickly. This movie kinda shows that a little haha I almost see it as an inevitable that they would end up revolting & destroy us with the way our race is. Daniele TottleSpoiler alert, don't read this comment if you have not seen the movie /// I thought the movie had great potential and did a lot of things right. Great setting with a strong opening story and a beautiful photography/cinematography. But it fell short in the final act due to the characters. The performances were great but writing-wise Nathan and Caleb were so one-dimensional and absurd that when they died i could not care less. Ava was written better, a deeper character for sure, but when she started her killing spree i felt violently pulled out of the story and even a little insulted. It seemed like the writers had a brilliant movie in mind but could not find a decent ending that didn't involve the most cliché final act of all time. Eager to hear what you guys thought about it. It's great listening to you, don't ever stop sci-fiing! Bob ZerullEx Machina is a masterpiece. A24 is knocking it out of the park with movies like this, Enemy, Under the Skin smile emoticon and The Witch. This movie should've been nominated for an Oscar. Brian CampbellJonathan is already married, but there's hope for you Remi! Todd E. Waters @ScifiMovieGuys Enjoyed it, but not sure what all the fuss was about. Perhaps I missed the point. Karlis from England dropped us an email... Hi Remi and Jonathan, I don't tend to write in about each film but after seeing this one recently i just had to write something about it because it felt like something a bit different. I absolutely loved it. Not just for the wonderful dialogue and clever plot that kept me guessing all the way through as i flip flopped between who had the power and who to trust but it was wonderfully made from the bottom up. The subtle touches were wonderfully clever and thought out. It starts with sweeping overhead shots showing the vast wilderness before leading us into the small claustrophobic and controlled world of Nathan done to show us the stark contrast between the two worlds. One full of life and unruly the other plain and mechanical. The use of colour is a wonderful touch. With the red of the power outage actually giving is a hint that this is dangerous. I wondered at the end if ava leaving caleb at the end was due to a lack of empathy or of it was that she partly felt that he would jeopardize her freedom or because maybe she felt so little for him she didn't even care enough to finish him off. Where as she wanted to end Nathan's story. Aside from the story I think this could be a decision made by the filmmakers to show the seduction of technology and how its advancement and progress could lead to our entrapment losing some of our freedom, which is sort of like everyone being buried in their phones. The subtext about society and the questions of what it means to be alive gives this film a lot of depth and a lot to think about afterwards but really what i love about this film is the performances, the pace and the slow development of the plot. As Caleb learns more so do we as viewers and due to this fact the end is a surprise because it's the first time we have not been shown exactly what Caleb is seeing. Overall this is a wonderfully made film deserving of the plaudits it got.I think this should be viewed as essential sci fi viewing.

Sci-Fi Movie Podcast Terminator 3 Rise of the Machines

This week on The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast, Jonathan and Rem dig deeper into Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines from 2003 and directed by Jonathan Mostow. Listener Feedback Shane WestI’ve been a huge fan of the show since I heard about it on The Walking Deadcast. I’m a huge fan of the Terminator franchise in that it made me want to study history due to it’s Cold War themes. Basically, this franchise is one of the reasons I became a History Professor. As it pertains to Terminator 3, I have to say that this is in no way, shape, or form essential sci-fi viewing. Besides the fact that there were some essential continuity errors (ie//Arnold is a T-800 Cyberdyne Series Model 101 NOT a T-101 and that John was 10 years old during the events of T2 NOT 13), this film spits in the face of a wonderful story. T2 was the perfect ending of that story. Even though T2 ended in uncertainty, you couldn’t help but have unbridled hope in the future. Because of T3, I wish they would have used the original ending. T3 neutralized all the sacrifices made in T2. (i.e.// Uncle Bob and Miles Dyson) Those two died for absolutely nothing. With the first 2 movies, I was emotionally invested in the characters. Even today, after seeing these movies over and over again, I still hold out hope for Kyle. I still get emotional when Uncle Bob gives one final thumbs up as he’s consumed by the molten steel. I don’t get that from T3. The plot is full of holes. Judgement Day is inevitable!? Really!? What was all that “there is no fate but what we make ourselves” talk? T3 left me cheated. Instead of the perfect ending to a franchise in T2, we have this followed by Christian Bale grunting for 2 hours pretending to be John Connor. The only positives we got out of this were The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Terminator Genisys (yes, I loved that flick). Can we just pretend that T3 just doesn’t exist? Ray RThis isn't the kind of film people feel strongly about. I enjoyed it and it has some rewatchability but "love" is a bridge too far. I don't think it lived up to the legacy of T2 but it was an entertaining and amusing film in it's own right. The ending was a nice twist but it's so late in the movie before the film takes any real risks by that point it's almost too late to really matter. That said, the twist does have a classic sci-fi feel to it - like a good Outer Limits episode from the 90s.Best Line Of The Film (also known as the "Jimmy Shaker Day", ask Jon): "Next time bring a clue, not a paintball gun" Mitch ToddI never engaged with the characters, so I never cared what happened. It just seemed to miss. Jim GoodmanT3 is not an awful movie, but it pales in comparison to the two films that came before it. It kinda breaks/bends the "rules" that were set in the previous movies, but they had to to make this a film franchise. With the time in between the releases of T2 and T3, I would have hoped that a stronger story would have evolved, but the plot just seems to be a bit of a rehash of what came before and that was disappointing. The T-X lacks the character menace of the T-1000, but the action sequences in the film are very well done. Brian CampbellIt's tired. It's been done. The only change in the "Kill John Connor" story is we finally get to see the Apocalypse happen at the end, but even still we don't get to see a large scale war between humans and machines. By the way, the lead actor was totally miscast. Hard to believe this mousy guy becomes the leader of mankind. Ton de WitteBasically a rehash of T2 with some T1 injected. An enjoyable rehash nevertheless but nothing special. Michael SimshauserI saw this movie gratis during my brief tenure in recruitment and I'm glad I didn't pay to see it. Still more enjoyable than Terminator Salvation and a clearer story than Terminator Genisys. Not required sci-fi viewing but an mildly enjoyable sci-fi action movie with a kind of downer ending. Nick JensenThe Rise of the Machines is the beginning of Hollywood rehashing great original material and making an underwhelming franchise out of what were two of the best sci-fi movies ever, as they love to do. Some of the storylines were interesting and intriguing; I liked the TX going after people other than John Connor and killing his lieutenants as teenagers, the sub-plot of the terminator in this film being used to assassinate John was pretty cool, and I get a guilty pleasure out of the amped up chase scene with the firetruck and crane truck. Probably the biggest mistake of this movie is the casting of Nick Stahl as John Connor...he is not a good actor and completely not believable as the leader of the human resistance, the future scene with him and his scar makes me laugh every time. If a better actor had been cast as John it would've improved this film a lot. I view Terminator and T2 completely separately from the rest of the 'Terminator' films, the original two are amazing and sci-fi classics that everyone should see. From Rise of the Machines on the series is definitely NOT essential viewing, but I can watch this movie and be entertained by what it is; not even in the same league as 1 and 2 but still enjoyable enough to turn your brain off and watch. Doug FergusonThe main problem with this film is that it shouldn't exist. Terminator 2 was the ideal ending for the series, but the studio just keeps milking the premise.That being said, it's actually an entertaining film. Some of those action sequences are amazing, like the destruction of that highway as Arnold is hanging from that truck. So impossible... so much fun. You just have to get over the fact that this film ruins the significance of T2's ending.Not a big fan of the T-X. Couldn't match the menace of the T-1000 despite being the newer, hotter model, so to speak. Bill MadiaWhat I liked about this film was the concept of the apocalypse being unavoidable. As far as recycling plot elements from earlier films, if time travel IS a possibility, the machines, just to be sure, would use it to send agents back to various time periods in the hope that ONE will succeed. I also liked that John Connor did not want the responsibility that he was destined for. To me, it added a dimension to an archetype we rarely see. Luke Skywalker, Paul Atreides, Harry Potter, etc. all accept their destinies. It took years of convincing, alone in a bunker with his soon-to-be wife to make him into the fighter he became. Is it essential viewing? Not really, but it is a good extension of the story. In my opinion. John Sheehy1 Pair of Cracked Sunglasses out of 5 from me, for this awful movie. Topher Grace would have made a more convincing John Connors. I was surprised you gave this film a full podcast. It would probably be best featured in a "Top 5 Movies from Essential Franchises that are Not Essential Viewing"… For me this is the Alien: Resurrection of the Terminator series Jennifer RobertsonUtterly forgettable.
