Something in Review: SOLO REDUX (w/ Big Kev & Erik)

Tagged , , , , ,

We got a message not so long ago from our good friend Big Kev, of a show you might remember, Big Kev’s Geek Stuff, now far flung years into the future with Geek Stuff: TNG (@GeekStuffTNG) – and a conversation about Solo broke out.

You see, Rob and I have mixed opinions on Solo… was it good? Was it good enough? Was it just nostalgic pablum?

The battle lines have been drawn… on the Somethingside, myself and Rob. On the side of the defense, we have not only Big Kev, but actor and long time friend of the Somethings and New Jersey actor Erik A.

So settle in and make your opinions known – it’s time for a

Have you checked out Livestream For The Cure yet? You should.

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)

The End – The Event

Tagged , , ,

Have you checked out Livestream For The Cure yet? You should.

It is time, yet again friends, for a journey to the last episode of a show – whether or not we’ve seen the rest of it.

This time, we harken back to a time when shows had a lot of set-up and then endings that felt kind of thrown out of nowhere. A time of mysterious islands and scenes that felt like they were ripped from escape rooms… mysteries abound, answers lesser so. It’s time for The End, with a show Rob has seen and Hatton has not – The Event.

Was it good? Was it bad? It only got one season and ends on a cliffhanger, so the answer is probably obvious… find out what we think on — The End.

BONUS: Stories To Amaze (in Space!)

Tagged , , ,

Last month we started a brand new Stories to Amaze with the confusing conspiracy that we call D E M – but we’ve been making these radiodramas for a year or two now over on our Patreon.

With so many folks stuck at home, and the rest working during the apocalypse to provide us with ambulances, fast food, and groceries – we thought you all deserve a little extra.

Combined all together into one convenient file, get ready to head off into the deepest reaches of Weird Science with…..

Storiiieees Toooooo Amaaaaaaaze!

Mark your calendars: Livestream For The Cure, May 28th – 31st.

It’s time to get Frakked and talk about one of the most influential shows of the last twenty years.

Sure, maybe in hindsight it has some flaws, which I’m sure we’ll jump to every 33 minutes, but in between listen as Hatton and Podcast Rob find out which one of them is a secret Cylon, get jettisoned from an airlock, and … is that …. is that a remake of a classic rock song we hear?

We’ll it’s time for you to hear it on The End – Battlestar Galactica

The BabyYodalorian

Tagged , , ,

The new Disney Plus service was started with a treat for sci-fi and muppet fans, alike. A show that reframes the most mysterious of characters – makes a badass loveable – makes a sage adorable – makes a ‘First Time Mom’ movie a ‘Buddy Cop Adventure’

That’s right – it’s the BabyYodalorian… and yes, we know, it’s ACTUALLY called the Mandolorian… but is it though? Really? Come on. You know better than that.

So let’s get to it – talking about a Wars in Space… a Star Wars if you will… and the cute fuzzy eggsac that floats around it.

Ok, here we go!

OH – WAIT – Don’t forget to listen after the episode for the first episode of the new Stories To Amaze! We worked super hard on it, and want to throw out a special thanks to Pre-Recorded Live who lent their voice talents.

Think of all the things we learned

The End – Travelers

Tagged , , , , ,

One of the things we love about The End is that it gives us a chance to talk about shows we might not have ever had a chance.

Travelers, a science fiction show about time travel and the ramifications of it all only has a few seasons and then it is done… but should it have been? Did it end on a high note, a low note, or was it just a show that came and went and we move on?

Well Hatton and Rob have stuff to say about it – and now you get to hear it. If you’ve never seen the show though, might want to wait on this one.

The 11th episode is here – The End: Travellers.
