Lost In Sci-Fi: Episode 61: Fan Fiction

It’s a podcast crossover event! Lost In Sci-Fi podcast meets up with Binary System Podcast and our resident Dixie Girl Jada to record the podcast we’ve been threatening promising to do for months: fan fiction. Kathryn, Elizabeth, and Jada drop all the knowledge that comes from having a fan fiction obsession addiction passion, while Leland listens on, appalled fascinated, and asks lots of questions.

Listen in for all the fan fiction information you never knew you needed, or never knew you didn’t want to know.

Binary System Podcast #109 – WTNV #120 “All Smiles’ Eve”

This week Binary System is going to be on the road for the holidays! They’ll be…no, wait, sorry, they’re already home. What day is it again? Time is weird. Please enjoy this Welcome To Night Vale Christmas recap that they recorded two weeks ago and in doing so got very caught up and very confused. Hope everybody’s holidays were excellent!

Binary System Podcast #108 – The Catch-Up Episode

It’s the last podcast before Christmas so let’s celebrate with an episode that’s…not really about Christmas at all. Ho ho ho?

Okay, so we recorded this two weeks ago and forgot it was the pre-Christmas episode, and in our defense we do manage to mention the Doctor Who Christmas special….last year’s Doctor Who Christmas special. (Sometimes we’re bad at TV.) But most of the episode is about the Battle Angel trailer (and her stupid, stupid eyes) plus the final episode of Futurama (did we mention we’re bad at TV?), The Crown, Twin Peaks The Return, and Let the Right One In, because nothing says Christmas like Swedish vampires.

Review – Till All Are One Annual 2017 (series finale)

I’ve been waiting for this one for months, and at the same time I hoped it’d never get here: the final issue of Till All Are One. In many ways the story ended the way I thought it might, but it got there by a really unexpected route. See below for a (spoiler-free!) (mostly!) review of Till All Are One Annual 2017.

Binary System Podcast #107 – Thor: Ragnarok and Stranger Things season 2

This is the second of two episodes we actually recorded last week (because time is weird) just to make sure the holiday travel time didn’t throw off our oh-so-carefully-prepared schedule (and if you believe we’re that organized we’ve got a bridge we can sell ya too. ANYWAY.) This week we’re talking about two things we’ve both finally seen: Thor Ragnarok and Stranger Things Season 2. (Fair warning, we’re gonna spoil all the things.)

And because we never did learn to focus, we also get into Twin Peaks and writing book reviews when the authors are going to actually read them.

Binary System Podcast – the Angels of Night Vale fan art

No podcast this week; the new Night Vale episode doesn’t drop until tomorrow, and it’ll be a few days before we catch up on all our TV shows and OH MY GOD HAVE YOU WATCHED SEASON TWO OF STRANGER THINGS YET?

Ahem. To fill the time until then, have some of our favorite Welcome To Night Vale fan art. We decided this time to focus on just angels. (The Sheriff’s Secret Police said it was okay to acknowledge their existence!)

Review – Transformers Lost Light #11

Review – Transformers Lost Light #11

At long last, this issue we get the answer to the question that’s bugged me for months: how the hell did Getaway convince Blaster and Perceptor to turn into filthy mutineers? I can buy it from some obscure, background-filler, appeared-47-issues-ago-so-I’ve-forgotten-their-name-SORRY, but Perceptor? Blaster??

And the reason is both slightly unsatisfying and completely believable. And I can’t get into it if I’m going to dance around the plot points, so fair warning: see below for a completely spoiler-filled discussion of Lost Light #11.
