Binary System Podcast #83 – Zombies Run with special guest Hannah

If you’ve ever said “the only way I’d go running is if something was chasing me” then you already know one of the reasons we’re fans of the Zombies, Run app. This week the twins’ sister Hannah Wallace guest stars on the podcast to talk about all the other reasons we love this post-apocalyptic game/story/activity tracker, where zombies randomly show up to make you run faster while our favorite British voice actors cheer us on.

We also fall down the rabbit hole of podcasts from across the pond, and how Hannah may or may not be stalking actors who perform Shakespeare with soup.

Review – Shirtless Bear-Fighter

Review – Shirtless Bear-Fighter

Shirtless Bear-Fighter from Image Comics is over-the-top, intentionally offensive, raunchy, cheesy, campy, and totally ridiculous. It’s also, not surprisingly, really fun.

The humor will seem very familiar if you’re a fan of parody adventure movies like Hot Shots and just about every Leslie Nielsen movie out there. It’s got all the tropes: a baby raised by wild animals, a retired warrior with a vendetta who’s lured back to the fight, a super villain gleefully rubbing his hands while he mwah ha haas his way through his evil plan, the government operative who’s too old for this but the war is all he’s got left, the hero cradling a dead body in the rain and vowing revenge…all of it. Plus bears. Lots of bears.

WonderCon 2017 – An interview with cast and creators of Voltron: Legendary Defender

Netflix and DreamWorks Animation’s Voltron: Legendary Defender debuted at WonderCon 2016. A year later, with a third season already on the way later this year, the fan reaction has been incredible. We got to sit down with some of the cast and creators of the show at WonderCon 2017 and talked with them about what’s to come next season, what they liked best about last season, and what they think about Voltron cosplay. (Seriously, if you wore your Voltron cosplay when you met the cast, you need to see this video: they think you’re amazing.)

See below for our interview with Kimberly Brooks, Joaquim Dos Santos, Tim Hedrick, Josh Keaton, Tyler Labine, Lauren Montgomery, Jeremy Shada, and Bex Taylor-Klaus.

Review – Transformers: Till All Are One #9

Review – Transformers: Till All Are One #9

Starscream struggles to maintain control of Cybertron in the wake of the battle with the undead Titans and Windblade’s…I mean her….look I don’t want to talk about it and it’s not entirely clear yet so I’m holding out hope, okay? Okay?

Anyway, things are getting political, but not in a paperwork and bureaucrats way but more in a propaganda and blackmail and “yes I have you over a barrel it’s for your own good and you’ll do what I say and you’ll like it” way. Also Elita One is not to be trifled with. Ever.

See below for a review of Till All Are One #9.

A conversation about Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Stranger Things, Deadwood, Better Call Saul, Zombies Run, West Wing, and more

Elizabeth of the Binary System podcast and sister Hannah had a late-night conversation about television writing that quickly spun into a critique of at least seven different series. We place it here because it’s Monday and it needed to go somewhere. If you disagree with anything we called “slightly overhyped” (looking at you, Supernatural) (You too, Stranger Things) please chime in at the comments!
