Binary System Podcast #111 – Twin Peaks: The Return and Hannibal

Welcome to Night Vale is still being good at a hiatus this January (bless ’em, we think they deserve a break), so we decided it was a good time for another “EEEEEEE!” fangirl-type episode. (Although in the case of Twin Peaks it’s less “EEEEEE!” and more “WHAT THE HELL, LYNCH?!”)

Spoiler warnings aplenty as the twins review everything they loved and hated about the first four episodes of Twin Peaks: The Return and the first season of Hannibal. (We’ll give you this one spoiler about Hannibal for free: nothing bad happens to Will’s dogs. Everyone else on the show is fair game, but the dogs are fine. You’re welcome.) Read On

Top Films of 2017

Well, 2017 has come to an end. Not going to sugarcoat it folks: this was a rough year with ups and so many downs. And we’ve all felt it: the looming war, the orange moron leading us into more despair every day, the countless sexual predators finally being called out and of course who could forget the return of the Nazi!

But when we needed to decompress or just shut off the voices in our brains and have a little enjoyment, this year was full of some great movies: wonderful films showing us love, strong females standing up for all rights, and people showing the world how much representation matters. No matter how bad things look; at least our voices in art haven’t been silenced. Read On
