Not all shows are created equal. Some shows are brilliant and stay that way throughout. Others go out into the woods to become lumberjacks.

This week we are taking it to the dark passenger and his damp serial killer, Dexter Morgan. When it all began, was it good? Does it hold up? What did we notice this time that we never noticed before? Lastly, is it worth going back to?

So follow the Somethings down to Miami as we talk The Beginning: Dexter

Ok, here we go!

In a post-Lost world, a lot of television shows came through the lens flaired hands of J.J. Abrams on his journey to screwing up Star Trek and leaving the bones of Star Wars to bleach in the pretty, yet confusing red sand. Fringe may be the show he is lauded for the least, but is that the way it should be?

A mix between X-Files and a procedural, Fringe gave us 5 seasons… but how did it begin?

Join us as we follow the wacky antics of crazypants science that is The Beginning: Fringe

Ok, Stranger, here we go!

One of the great things about doing In The Beginning is that we get a chance to look at some stuff that was super popular, but doesn’t really reach the lofty goals of a multiple season blah blah..  so we can even take on the classics of the 80s – the TV Miniseries.

So why don’t we start that idea with one of the biggest and most well known in a little story about the aliens landing and being totally friendly and not at all problematic lizard monsters. …No.. seriously…

Anyway, does it stand the test of time? Is it good? Is it the reason miniseries aren’t around anymore?

Find out on The Beginning – V.

It’s been so long since I’ve done that. You see, we’ve started a new thing.. The Beginning. Since we’ve done it now for a couple episodes we thought, as PCR likes to put it, to rip the bandaid off and just get this one out of the way. Before the messages and tweets and you darling somethings ask for it, we’re just going to get the mystical island that haunts us out of the way.

And what did we think? I mean, the answer may surprise you… but it probably shouldn’t.

So settle in with your box of Dharma Initiative Fish Biscuits and get ready to go back yet again to The Beginning – Lost.

Ok, here we go again..!

Do you want to be a superhero, but your moral compass is all out of whack? Are you obliviously lost in a differente decade? Do you frequently get people telling you that they can’t see you?

If the answer is – you are John Cena and we’re glad you support the show. Please reach out for an interview, we won’t charge you much.

Anyway, this week we are discussing the Cena show that took the world by surprise. I mean, Cena has always had the comedy chops, but to hold up the lionshare on this ensemble piece is an impressive feat.  But what was that first episode? A good place to begin or over-hype?

Let’s answer the question on In the Beginning: Peacemaker

Ok here we AWABADOO… ba baa ba baa.

We have returned with our newest attempt at relevancy, The Beginning!

On this episode we go to the comic book wagon again for the most recent in the constant struggle for the MCU to find its footing – this time with a series that has been in the works since Captain Marvel. He is our favorite Bad Motha-shut-yo-mouth, Sam Jackson returning as Nick Fury, in a world where anyone of us could be a Skrull.

So settle in as we talk about the first episode, how it sits, how the Marvel U looks, and more on The Beginning: Secret Invasion!

Ok, here Kree go!

In an ironic twist, we End the month, not with The End… but… The Beginning!

Now, this may confuse some of you – but it really shouldn’t, it isn’t that hard of a concept – previously we would talk about the last episodes of shows, and guess what, now we’re going to talk about the beginning of them. The End will still be around when it is relevant, but we have some great ideas for this new take on what we were doing.

We’re starting with a show that made millions look to the sky and wonder, ‘…weather balloon?’ – The X-Files.  And, as you will hear, there is no possible way we could have done an episode on The X-Files without the resident X-pert on X-Things, the Scully to Hatton’s Mulder, making her Somethingcast debut Brittany!

So – does the start of the X-Files still smoke or is it just a cover up?  Find out on the debut of The Beginning: X-Files

The Truth’s Ok, here we go!
