It’s time to return to head on back to a long time ago and take a trip to a galaxy not nearby at all….
That’s right – the Somethings, always present and ready with the cutting edge commentary – are ready to talk Star Wars. If you are a Wars’y type, you likely have your opinion on whether Abrams & The Mouse nailed it, missed it, or middled it… but now you get to find out how much you disagree with two other guys on the internet!
So gather your Sith Powers (or Jedi Powers, I guess…) and get ready to boldly go where every other podcast has gone before already! It’s time to review The Rise of Skywalker! (..or is it The Skywalkers?) ..it doesn’t matter. (..and stick around, the end has a treat)
With the world topsy turvy, a month with 5 Tuesdays, we are all jumbled up, so The End came early, there’s a chaos episode next week – and this week, you get a review of a show we’ve talked about before! ..but it’s ok, because it is AHS.
American Horror Story is a staple of television these days, and each year brings a new theme, new monsters, new intrigue, and a revolving cast of characters that is drastically different than what we got in Ghost House so many years ago.
So – as the horrors head back in time, is it up to the AHS highs of Hotel and Coven? Or is it down in the lows like your least favorite season. (Most people would put Roanoke here, but I love that season) — don’t be too shy shy, find out our thoughts right now!
We’re heading out into deep seas this month for a “documentary” with a twist.. also a title so long it doesn’t fit in the title bar.
This journey is one of art, one of curiosity, and it is a divisive piece of cinema. If you don’t know anything about it – we get in there, so you’ve been warned this is a spoiler of an episode, perhaps more than usual.
That said – join PC Rob, Hatton, and Edmund Fitzgerald as we go spelunking deep into the abyss.
Is this the same powerhouse that was Jekyll? It’s got the same team, as well as longtime Dr. Who showrunner in Stevan Moffat… so why don’t we take a ship across the country and tell you all what Hatton & PCR think.
Sure, it’s early, but we’re taking next month off – so we gotta get it in somewhere.
And since everyone is getting themselves all stuff prepared, we decided to hit a a movie that had a strange beginning, but has found its place as a Christmas Traditional for weirdos… it is the scariest Christmas Carol ever put to film – SCROOGED! (I heard an old lady had a heart attack)
So join in the festivities as the Somethings discuss whether this was a well-received holiday tradition (like cranberries in a can) – or the kind of thing you tolerate just because it’s the holidays (like hugging the weird aunt that always smells like cat pee)
It’s time to be visited by three ghosts and two Somethings, so you best change your ways…. Scrooged!
There is this movie – this movie that a lot of people saw and nobody remembers it until they are told about it by someone who has been awoken. I’m sure there are a lot of movies that fit this strange Mandela Effect sort of situation, but this one is special…. well, mostly because it is a hallmark movie in Hatton’s life and that of his sister.
So she recommended we review this – what happens when nostalgia meets a complete newbie to strange Canadian Fantasy Drama.
This is the strange and mysterious tale, featuring Celine Dion and Tigh Saul from BSG… it’s the only answer you can solve with hair…
So I’m GLaD, I got burned Think of all the things we learned for the…
Fire up your Portal Gun, and settle in with your Companion Cube, it is time for Netflix’s post-something-er-another future with a robot that really will remind you of GLaDOS. She’s not, but … well, you’ll see.
So what happens when a robot raises a child. Doesn’t it take a village? Shouldn’t it at least take like.. two robots? We’re not against single-robot families, we were just surprised is all.
Settle in and find out on this episode of Something In Review, where we talk about I Am Mother.
Ok, not really. You see, we are getting a lot of stuff for free these days. Need to know the weather? Sure! Want to play a silly little Facebook game? Ok! Want to see a photo of you as a bunny or an older bunny? Why not!?
Truth is – you are paying – we all are… and something as silly as online surveys and photo filters may have much bigger repercussions than you ever thought.
We’re talking the documentary The Great Hack, the story of Cambridge Analytics and how they may have created the political landscape we’re living in…. wow, that was so much more serious than our usual entries.
Don’t worry, we still make the same stupid jokes on Something In Review: The Great Hack
There are movies that the Somethings agree about… Highlander. There are movies that the Somethings disagree about… Mars Attacks.
The Invitation definitely fits into one of those categories.
A group of people are invited (get it?) to a dinner party where they haven’t seen each other in quite a long time and have a sordid history. So why are they there? Is it supposed to feel so uncomfortable? Are they getting suckered into buying Amway?
