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

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!

Four girls out delivering papers one morning get caught up in a reality-bending time-travelling adventure. A think tank unleashes a magic-infused artificial intelligence upon the world, and now struggles with the consequences. And fifty citizens in a fairytale kingdom are caught up in a deadly contest to decide who will rule. We discuss 3 of our favourite recent comic book releases – Paper Girls, Injection and Geis. We also discuss why we don’t want to know who the new Doctor Who will be, and rule ourselves out of directing the new Batman movie.
Paper Girls by Brian K Vaughan (writer), Cliff Chiang (artist), Matt Wilson (colourist), Jared K Fletcher (letterer) from Image Comics
Injection by Warren Ellis (writer), Declan Shalvey (artist), Jordie Bellaire (colourist), Fonografiks (letterer) from Image Comics

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).

Zelda! Mario! Splatoon! Strange wild west quick draw! Crazy boxing arms! It was all there at the launch of the Nintendo Switch, and we got up at 4am to watch it, as you do. Join us as we pour over the list of upcoming games and discuss what we are most looking forward to.
We also go in-depth on everything we know so far about Zelda: Breath of the Wild including its incredible new trailer. Where does it fit into the timeline? What is it like to hear voice acting in Zelda for the first time? And will Becks get stuck for 2 years like she did with Skyward Sword?

In our first guest episode we reunite half a team of adventurers from classic kids TV fantasy gameshow Knightmare!
It was over 20 years ago that Becks and Row faced down the perils of the dungeon… and met with an (oooh, nasty) fate. Now Row joins us to reminisce about the D&D style audition process, how the show was made, and just how method Treguard was in between takes. Plus we ask whether following the Adventurers Code was the right thing to do…

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is out! Join us for spoiler-filled musings on the newest entry in the Star Wars series. Although we shouldn’t be advocating not listening to our podcast after only a few episodes, don’t listen until you’ve seen the movie.
Plus some thoughts on the new trailers for the Power Rangers movie, Twin Peaks and Blade Runner 2049, the latter revealing the confusion in picking out Ryan Gosling, Ryan Reynolds and Chris Evans in a line-up.
