And now the story of omnipotent aliens who lost everything, and the two podcast hosts who had no choice but to watch their respective movies and see if they could keep it together.
We start off the show with a look back at Star Trek Into Darkness. While our anticipation for the movie ran high, the final product proved to have a few holes. Our spoiler-filled chat on the Final Frontier talks about the gross underutilization of Benedict Cumberbatch, the way they've mangled the story of some of the characters, where the story hit its all time high, and just a few of the ways the movie pays tribute to the original timeline.
Then we jump in, feet first, to our Man of Steel discussion. Remember back in Episode 8 when we talked about what it would take for Superman to be relevant and interesting to current movie audiences? It seems like Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan might have been listening in to our show that week, because Man of Steel feels like a line-by-line interpretation of so many of our ideas. We gush about the updated approach to the movie, lament the property losses, and talk about how much we love Man of Steel almost in spite of itself.
Jay's been binge watching an old TV show, and we look back at the Bluth empire and its mighty fall.
Then it's a quick sideways tangent into the current landscape of TV, with brief chats on Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Orphan Black, Breaking Bad, and the finale of The Office.
There's lots of stuff in this episode, all crammed into a 75 minute window!
