Time for Cherry Pie and Coffee – PART 10

We sent Candie out to fetch our Part 10 episode, so naturally it’s a day late! After this brutal episode of Twin Peaks we discuss how the pendulum of violence swings from the distressing to the absurd. Perhaps one of the darkest hours of Twin Peaks yet focusing all too closely on the evil that men do. As the Log Lady says, now the circle is almost complete. Watch and listen to the dream of time and space.

Contains spoilers for Parts 1-10, Seasons 1 & 2, The Secret History of Twin Peaks and FWWM.

Keeping the Mystery Alive: what Doctor Who can learn from Twin Peaks

Episode 14 – Welcome back, Team Z!

iZombie returns! We’re looking forward to seeing Team Z back on our screens any day now, making it the perfect opportunity to look back on the first two years of the show, talk about what makes it one of the best things on TV, and speculate on what surprises the new season has up its lab coat sleeve. Plus we review the latest Netflix/MCU series Iron Fist.

Episode 13 – John Constantine on screen

John Constantine has been around for a long time. Beginning as a supporting character in Alan Moore’s run in DC’s Swamp Thing, he later became the star of his own series, Hellblazer from Vertigo. After 300 issues, he joined the current DC continuity in four different series. However, despite his popularity on the page, he hasn’t had the best of luck on screen. With the release of Justice League Dark as part of the DC animated universe, we look back on his screen portrayals on film and TV. Keanu Reeves had one go in the 2005 film “Constantine” and Matt Ryan has had three attempts (with more to come?) in the 2015 TV series “Constantine”, as part of the CW DC TV universe in “Arrow”, and most recently in JLD. All these appearances and still no Funko Pop.

At the top of the episode, we also review a fantastic genre movie double bill, Kong Skull Island and Logan.

Episode 12 – Buffy turns 20!

It’s the 20th anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer! We celebrate by choosing 10 episodes of the show which we think made Buffy great. Some obvious picks and some more unusual choices that we think represent the essence of this groundbreaking show.

And we also address the big question – should it ever come back?

Episode 10 – that’s what it is!

We wax nostalgic about a lost TV show from late ’90s, an irreverent sci-fi action comedy about the eternal battle between good and evil. Agents of the Almighty Corps fight back against the demonic morlock tide on the streets of LA. With a ’70s retro vibe, terrific cast, and always willing to play with its format, it gave us two seasons of classic TV. ‘GvsE’, that’s what it is!

If ever a show deserved a DVD release – or better yet, a reunion episode – it’s GvsE, otherwise known as Good vs Evil. After being shuffled between networks and cancelled before its time, we reckon that GvsE deserves to find a bigger audience. The current problem is that the audience can’t find it!

Episode 8 – An Expansive TV round-up

Join us for musings on a multitude of genre TV offerings! We discuss two new sci-fi shows: the TV adaptation of The Expanse series of books and the intriguing, original mystery The OA. And after defeating the Invasion in a fantastic crossover event, we chat about the status of the DC TV universe and marvel (!) at how great Legends of Tomorrow has become, even as the grumpy Arrow tries to put a downer on everything.

Plus with all the brand new shows coming out in this year, we focus on the some  returning shows we’re looking forward to. There are third seasons of Better Call Saul, iZombie and Twin Peaks, an eighth season of Archer and the fifth and final season of Orphan Black. We speculate on how the latter will end – we hope we’re right but we’re almost certainly wrong (hint: it involves dinosaurs).
