Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 Premiere: “Shadows”

September 28, 2014

We didn’t love Season 1 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, something we mentioned in that uncharacteristically angry Serenity podcast we did.

So we’re hoping for something funnier, cooler, darker and just a bit more engaging with Season 2. Does the first episode show promise?

Season 3 gets off to an extraordinarily English start with the introduction of Marcus (we haven’t even got to A Late Delivery from Avalon yet!) and the Thwipping Boys accidentally recreate a scene from Breaking Bad.

The Flight of Dragons Vs. The Last Unicorn!

September 16, 2014

One of Jon’s favourite films from his youth is a 1982 Rankin Bass animated fantasy called The Flight of Dragons, something he maintains is more than good enough to provide enjoyment to an adult.

So Simon checks it out, despite an admitted dislike of animated fantasy.

Then the guys both have their first experience of The Last Unicorn, another highly-regarded Rankin Bass film often seen as a superb companion piece…

Babylon 5 – Season 2: The Coming of Shadows Part 2

September 7, 2014

Former Babylon 5 cynic Simon and longtime fan Jon continue their epic Babylon 5 podcasting session with Simon running the emotional gamut from confusion (IS Kosh actually a Vorlon? Does he still have affection for Londo?) to surprise (they’ve discovered Morden!) to utter joy (Talia’s gone! Hurray!) and more.

Enjoy!

Babylon 5 – Londo “Shadow Hair” Wallpaper

September 2, 2014

Hey there, Jon here.

I was looking at Simon’s awesome graphic that he came up with for our Babylon 5 Season 2 podcast (just scroll down or click here if you have lazy fingers) and I thought, man, I want that as a desktop wallpaper.

So please help yourselves to a hi-res version if you would like one. He’s even done you a couple of options – with and without the B5 logo!

Babylon 5 – Season 2: The Coming of Shadows Part 1

September 2, 2014

Huzzah! It’s the second part of our epic “get a guy who thinks Babylon 5 is crap to watch the whole thing and record his reactions” series.

If you haven’t listened to the Season 1 Podcast, then get thee over there and do that by jove!

If you have, then join us for the first half of Season 2, which begins with Simon’s reactions to the Sinclair-Sheridan swap, after a somewhat awkward confession…
