We’re 16! We can drive now! Like a new driver, this episode is all over the place as we talk about John Barrowman news, review the 2007 Doctor Who Christmas Special Voyage of the Damned, then Torchwood Season 2, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Sleeper, To the Last Man, Meat, and Adam. We go a little long, but stuck even more (an extra 20 mins or so) after the outro to talk about Fathers Day, PS4s, Battlefront, and digital comics. And extra Kylie Minogue.
Monkey noises from Plants vs Zombies. Nothing makes us that excited anymore, like that bubbles scene in Knocked Up.
John Barrowman news from Las Vegas Comic Con:
We start filming in July, Season Four I just finalized my deal about a week ago, Barrowman told an audience at Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con this weekend. Im very excited about going back, I cant tell you anything because I do know a bit about whats going to happen. But if you love Malcolm Merlyn, if you love Oliver Queen, if you love Thea Queen, if you love the Canary sisters, and I say that with a bit of a twist and a joke in it, youre going to love whats going to happen across the DC world.
Were kinda done with Ras al Ghul. Bring on whats him name? Oh yeah. . . HIVE guy. . . Damien Dahrk.
Voyage of the Damned trading out Billie Piper for Kylie Minogue and weeping angels for robot angels. Another Being Human sighting. Fails: talking about cyborg rights, body image and fat shaming. Maybe cocktail waitresses dont understand physics.
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang We like James Marsters with a slight British accent. Woo hoo! Join us on our Smallville podcast. More backstory on Jack.
Sleeper Are we more than just our memories? America-centrism strikes Andy again! The experience of Brits with sleeper agents.
To the Last Man Poor Tosh. Crumpled paper wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff. War? What is it good for? PTSD. Bravery vs. being executed for cowardice. What we expect of our soldiers today. Are humans worth it? Maybe not. Especially not all of us. We go off about Charleston. The eternal struggle against evil. The Fifth Element. Love wins.
Meat the space whale makes us sad. Good to bring Rhys in, but this still feels doomed. The tragedy but mercy and morality of euthanasia.
Adam twisting the sadness knife more, especially with Tosh. What makes us who we are and how much of that is our memories? Jacks memories. Owens memories. Core memories and Inside Out. Tosh still pining over Owen. Adam was totally a rapist.
Before we got down to the episode, we went on a long birdwalk about Fathers Day. The importance of being direct about what you want. How what we really want are PS4s. Drooling over Battlefront and FFVII. Theres too many shows, video games, movies! The value of being patient and being behind the curve.
Comic books: to digital or no? Marvel Unlimited. Longboxes take up too much room. Only picked up physical copies of a few Harley Quinn comics for sentimental reasons. Andy just wants Star Trek: TNG datapads thats essentially an iPad. Confession: Andy never read The Infinity War until a few years ago. He probably wont read Secret Wars until Christmas.
Enjoy the Kylie Minogue!
