Star Wars: Rebels [Part 2]

The second part of our Rebels show. Now we go into deep spoiler territory talking about the characters and events of Season 1. If you haven’t seen the show but want to know what happens anyway there’s plenty to be surprised by. Otherwise it might do to track down that first season and watch it before coming back. Hey we’ve got to do *something* to fill the hours until Rogue One. Neil Taylor of GameBurst and Alex Eding of Plaid Hat Gaming join Sharon and I once again to discuss the crew of the Ghost and the many cameos from beloved Star Wars alumni. http://schoolofmovies.podbean.com/mf/play/4j5ve6/RebelsPart2.mp3Podcast: Play in new window |...

Star Wars: Rebels [Part 1]

This is the first installment of our Rebels show. It’s spoiler-free so if you need any more convincing to go track this down on DVD or Blu Ray, let this be it. Recorded many months before seeing The Force Awakens this was the perfect show to draw us back into the world of Star Wars. It may seem very kid-friendly but it’s got a lot of darkness and a lot of heart to back that up and some great colourful characters you will want to follow the adventures of. Neil Taylor of GameBurst and Alex Eding of Plaid Hat Gaming once again join Sharon and myself to return to a galaxy far, far away.

Bad Reviews Against Humanity: Vol. 6

[SOEE #87] To see in the new year and take a brief respite from Star Wars we’re doing another round of reading out some of the most irrational, sarcastic and hilarious movie reviews from the @AmznMovieRevws twitter feed. Along with this is a series of dramatic readings from many sources, most notably the fourth Fifty Shades of Grey book from the ongoing billionaire pervert saga; Grey. Joining us from The Mana Pool (a Magic: The Gathering podcast that we guested on) Jason Chewie Slate, and Bill Bloodworth, and their buddy from Card Advantage; Aaron LaCluyze. Once again, don’t drive or operate heavy machinery while listening to this one. We don’t want to be responsible for any mishaps incurred while laughing hysterically. http://schoolofmovies.podbean.com/mf/play/szmnjw/BadReviewsAgainstHumanity-Vol6.mp3Podcast: Play in new window |...

Jessica Jones

A truly stellar cast join Sharon and I to discuss this critically acclaimed Netflix show; Laura Kate Dale of Destructoid and the Jimquisition podcast, Alasdair Stuart of Psudopod and the Escape Artists, Marguerite Kenner of Cast of Wonders and Joshua Garrity of Cane and Rinse. This is a seriously epic three hour discussion. I barely cut anything out because everybody was so on-point the whole time. We strongly suggest you see the whole of Season 1 first.

Ghostwatch

This appeared on the patreon today but enough people were asking about it and recommending the show to newcomers that it just seemed like it needed bringing back. So now you know how to get that done. Ghostwatch is the 1992 hoax TV broadcast screened on BBC1 which caused a widespread national panic as thousands of kids (and more adults that would like to admit it) reacted with terror to the creepy happenings onscreen. http://schoolofmovies.podbean.com/mf/web/ybnghz/153Ghostwatch.mp3Podcast: Play in new window |...

Bad Reviews Against Humanity: Vol. 5

[SOEE #86] This episode comprises previously unheard segments from our Vol. 3 recording, which was entirely based on sarcastic reviews for frequently absurd products. There’s a lot more backstage chat and bungled attempts at organizing the readings into a game. It will make more sense if you listen in conjunction with Vol. 3. Check out the original Twitter account that inspired these shows: @AmznMovieRevws edited by Joseph Grabinski who features in this episode. Joseph is joined by Joshua Garrity and James Carter from Cane and Rinse, Jerome McIntosh of Gameburst and Player 1 from the Cartridge Bros. podcast.

Bad Reviews Against Humanity: Vol. 4

[SOEE #85] Taking a break from Disney for a while Bad Reviews returns in style. If, for some reason you haven’t heard the first three, go back through the podcast feed and find them. They are some of the funniest podcasting experiences ever. For the uninitiated this is a mix of funny, sarcastic, baffling and occasionally facepalm-inducing Amazon reviews. This episode combines both the Bad Reviews Live session recorded at Drift-Con 2015 and the previously unheard parts of our Vol. 2 recording. A huge thank you to the various guests over these shows: Neil Taylor of GameBurst, James Carter and Joshua Garrity of Cane and Rinse, Lorin Grieve of A Year of Steam, James Batchelor of Bond & Beyond and Rare Replayed, Will Parkes from our community and of course my wife and co-host Sharon Shaw.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

[SOEE #110] We bring our Terminator shows to a close with a discussion about the brief but brightly burning TV series. This managed two seasons, which is more than most Fox shows and the ending is abrupt but satisfying, hinting at greater depths in further episodes. However, in it’s lifespan it managed some of the most cerebral, emotional and fascinating moments in Terminator mythology leaving the three most recent movies in the dust. The central trio of performances grow exceptional over time and are backed up by a network of strong support characters, expanding beyond the typical small group of the movies and  outlining a saga across time that is epic in scale. Yet at its core this is a deeply personal story about a mother and her son, John’s maturing into the man he has heard so much about from others and the enormous burden Sarah feels, but cannot set down. It’s worth your time and money. The episode is divided into two with a spoiler section clearly flagged, in which we discuss the endgame. Listen to Tiger’s Eye! Search for New Century on iTunes today and get into some superb audio drama.

Daredevil [Netflix]

[SOEE #67] This is our spoiler-filled podcast review of the first season of the Netflix show. I’ll say up front this is not our favourite Marvel production. Not only do we bring up what we feel are its weaker aspects but just FYI it gets very vitriolic about the feature-creep of torture and mutilation into adult TV. This rant has been a long time coming folks. But there are of course aspects that we like and indeed love, and we definitely want to see more.

The Seven Most Important Superhero Movies

The Seven Most Important Superhero Movies

[SOEE #109] On this very special episode (in the week I’m celebrating eight years in the podcasting game) I gathered Bob “Moviebob” Chipman, Parris Lilly of “Gamertag Radio” and Joe Cunningham of the “Cinematic Universe” podcast, and along with my wife and co-host Sharon Shaw we asked ourselves… Which are the seven most important superhero movies to date? Not our favourites, not best, most important. We debated them up and down the history and our conclusions may surprise you… or they may be the exact seven you chose in which case you have your finger well and truly on the pulse because we spent ages on this.   It’s a brilliant episode and one I was so proud to host. A big thank you to our guests who brought all kinds of intelligent and reasoned viewpoints along with them. Be sure to check out the thread on this very subject on the forum and cast your vote.
