Remember When – Episode 58

0

The Last Bluth of Krypton

And now the story of omnipotent aliens who lost everything, and the two podcast hosts who had no choice but to watch their respective movies and see if they could keep it together.

We start off the show with a look back at Star Trek Into Darkness.  While our anticipation for the movie ran high, the final product proved to have a few holes.  Our spoiler-filled chat on the Final Frontier talks about the gross underutilization of Benedict Cumberbatch, the way they’ve mangled the story of some of the characters, where the story hit its all time high, and just a few of the ways the movie pays tribute to the original timeline.

Then we jump in, feet first, to our Man of Steel discussion.  Remember back in Episode 8 when we talked about what it would take for Superman to be relevant and interesting to current movie audiences?  It seems like Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan might have been listening in to our show that week, because Man of Steel feels like a line-by-line interpretation of so many of our ideas.  We gush about the updated approach to the movie, lament the property losses, and talk about how much we love Man of Steel almost in spite of itself.

Jay’s been binge watching an old TV show, and we look back at the Bluth empire and its mighty fall.

Then it’s a quick sideways tangent into the current landscape of TV, with brief chats on Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Orphan Black, Breaking Bad, and the finale of The Office.

There’s lots of stuff in this episode, all crammed into a 75 minute window!

Remember When – Episode 56

Grimlock

Pick yourselves up on the floor!  Not only is Remember When back with a new episode, we’re on schedule!

Heads up, we’re coming in HOT!  Parris has just finished the first season of Sherlock after a year of pressure from Jay.  And boy, do we have a lot to talk about! Parris recounts his experiences watching the first season and what he thinks about the show’s brilliance.  Jay chats about an alternate universe where Benedict Cumberbatch nearly became the Eleventh Doctor.   And then, of course, we tangent off to talk about the news of David Tennant’s return to the Who-niverse for the 50th Anniversary Special…. and we somehow, inexplicably, end up talking about Beverly Hills 90210 (the original) and Saved by the Bell.  Go figure!

Jay lets it slip that he’s not a fan of Dinobots, which leads to a nostalgic trip down memory lane as we revisit our love of the original Transformers cartoon, the G.I. Joe movie, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, and Voltron.  Parris lets Jay know about the original edit of G.I. Joe where a beloved character nearly died, and Jay talks about his emotional stress from the original Transformers movie.

We briefly chat about the starting episode for the latest season of Mad Men, and then tangent on how both of us are coming up to an impasse with The Walking Dead… at different points in the show.   And naturally, this leads to catching up on where we’re at with other shows, like Parks & Recreation, Modern Family, and Community.  And then Jay talks about the first 15 minutes of Defiance, and how painful it looks.

Whether you like new stuff or old memories, this episode has something for you!
