Ep 132: Joker (2019) Review (Full Spoilers)

October 16, 2019

 

Have you ever had a bad day? Scott certainly has, but not when watching Joker! He's joined by Jillian Diblasio to talk about one of the few DC characters that he actually likes first solo movie...and all the controversy surrounding it. From Joaquin Phoenix's brilliant performance to the portrayal of mental illness, Scott just can't help but...smile.

Plus, something spooky is coming this Halloween to Podcapers!

Ep 131: Alter Ego with Dave Terruso

October 9, 2019

 

What if superheroes were real? They'd be bloody terrifying! Scott is joined by Dave Terruso to talk about his superhero mystery novel-cum-comic, Alter Ego, and provide plenty of opportunities for Scott to gush about it, because seriously guys, this book is pretty damn awesome! But the movie Yesterday is not. Just listen to the show, it'll all become clear soon enough.

Read the first two chapters of Alter Ego and be sure to check out the Indiegogo!

Ep 130: Scott Re-Scripts The Mummy (2017)

October 1, 2019

October is here! Halloween is on the way! But Scott can't wait, so we're starting this month off with a look at a beloved horror classic...that was brutalised by Tom Cruise. Scott is joined by Heather of The Valkyries Podcast to examine what went wrong for what was meant to be the beginning of the Dark Universe franchise, and also explain why he could have done it better. Admittedly, not a massive hurdle to jump over.

Check out Heather on The Valkyries Podcast!

Also we apologise for the audio issue throughout the episode. It's unfortunate and unfixable, but still not as annoying as the 2017 Mummy movie.

Ep 129: Carnival Row Season 1 Review (Full Spoilers)

Ep 129: Carnival Row Season 1 Review (Full Spoilers)

September 18, 2019

I DO BELIEVE IN FAERIES! This week, Scott and Alex Mirabal talk about the entertaining, but deeply flawed, Carnival Row. The fantasy TV series power vacuum left by Game of Thrones has spat out another show for us to review (and yes we know vacuums suck things, not spit them out but just ignore that please, thanks ever so much), and unlike Dark Crystal last week, there's more to talk about. Unfortunately a lot of it is bad. But some of it's good! But not enough. Or maybe not! I dunno. Figure it out for yourselves, we can't hold your hand through your whole life. Get your act together!

Ep 128: The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Review (Full Spoilers)

September 11, 2019

What the Fraggle? A good fantasy TV show? Praise Frank Oz and all his muppety minions! Scott and Mark Russell sit down to discuss a franchise that they both arrived late to, but nonetheless cherish deeply, as they talk about the newest iteration of the Dark Crystal saga. From the perfect puppetry, to the stupendous story, it's a tale Jim Henson would be proud of, and one you should absolutely watch.

Ep 127: Scott Re-Scripts The Force Awakens

September 3, 2019

In a new format that is in no way an exercise in flagrant ego-boosting, Scott tries to not only criticise a movie, but discuss how it would be so much better if HE wrote it instead. Joined by Jillian Diblasio, Scott points out the pitfalls of the much maligned Episode 7 of the Star Wars saga, and tries to inject some pathos, better character arcs, and even, dare we say, a wee bit of originality into the film. And we're sure he's the first one to do so, too.

Ep 126: The Cosplayer That Doomed the Earth with Dan Harris

August 28, 2019

This week, Scott is joined by the creator of Lou Scannon, Druid Investigations, and the Podcapers logo, Dan Harris! I know, we thought it was about bloody time too. In amongst many, many, MANY tangents, Scott and Dan discuss his varied works, his process for making them, and what the future holds. Also, a zombie kids show.

Check out the Kickstarter for Cosplayer, plus Dan's Patreon!

DISCLAIMER. One of Scott's comments on the Sony/Marvel deal may be slightly inaccurate. Sony pays for production of all Spider-Man movies, even in the MCU. Marvel does, however, still do all the actual production work. Cut him some slack, this whole mess is complicated!

Well that was quick. Despite the fast turnaround since the last season and the fact that this season is only six episodes, Scott and Alex Mirabal still love this show! With there still being plenty to talk about, plenty of cool action, and plenty of GAY AWESOMNESS, this is a show they're going to stick to for a long while!

August 7, 2019

It's that time of year again! Scott is joined by Alex Mirabal to announce the winners of this year's TV Awards. It's a prestigious honour and there are many nominees but thankfully, because this is a podcast, there are no drunken celebrities rambling on during their acceptance speech. You know who you are. And you ruin it for the rest of us.

Ep 123: History of Sailor Moon

July 31, 2019

Fighting evil by moonlight...and also during the day, it's Sailor Moon! And Scott knows next to nothing about her. So Mark Russell is giving him a crash course in the magical girl genre and getting him more acquainted with teenagers in miniskirts fighting crime. Wait, that sounds really bad.

Also remember to vote in the AP2HYC TV Awards
