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!

Six months ago, a podcast faded into a quiet slumber, hibernating its way through the slow winter crawl. Now, two show hosts emerge, bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready to talk about the shows and movies they love. Remember When is back!
We return with a brand new, unscripted show that’s recorded on-the-fly as we sit down and catch up on the things we’ve missed over the past half year. We discuss the lengthy gap between shows (we’re very sorry) and talk about the things in our lives that have kept us focused elsewhere. But then we dust off our microphones and jump right into the swing of things.
And boy, is there a lot to discuss! Walking Dead is coming off its best season ever, Breaking Bad rang our bell (if you know what I mean), Mad Men’s about to return… cable TV is on FIRE right now! And with the summer roster of movies featuring titles like The Amazing Spider-man, The Dark Knight Rises, and Prometheus, 2012 is on track to be one of the best years for pop culture hounds.
Parris has a confession in the episode, and we take the tangents to a new level by walking right out of the Remember When podcast and back into our old UncleGamer chairs.
This episode is our way of getting back into the swing of things, and lets us catch up while catching you up as well.
Remember When is a product of love from Jay and Parris. We do this because we’re friends, and our friendship is the podcast. But we appreciate our listeners as well, and we thank you for the many kind (and a few that were less than kind) letters, emails, and voicemail messages you sent us these past few months. Having your support enables us to do the show and encourages us to keep doing this.
As always, you can find us on Twitter, on Facebook, and on the web. Or, if you’d like to leave us feedback, you can call us at 206-495-1732 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, and enjoy the show!
