Binary System Podcast #115 – The Oscar-Nominated Animated Shorts

The planets finally aligned (…took them long enough. Get it together, planets…) and Binary System Podcast was able to get Elizabeth, Kathryn, Nathan, and Jada together at the same time to talk about this year’s Oscar-Nominated Animated Shorts. Spoiler warnings for all the shorts (as well as, randomly, Moana) as we go over our favorites, tell “Stupid Theater People” stories, and discuss whether or not Red Riding Hood and Snow White were a couple. (Though we all agree Red is a total badass.)

We also touched on the nominations for Best Feature-Length Animated Film, of which we’ve seen exactly none.

Binary System Podcast #114 – Placeholder Content

Not sure what’s going on lately, but there’s a wealth of topics that we could turn into podcasts this month. So many fun things going on: the Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts are playing at theaters, there’s a new Welcome to Night Vale episode to recap, we’ve got the Hannibal series to review, a list of helpful movie/tv sites to compile, and the number of songs we’d like to talk about from the WTNV Weather segment just keep adding up.

…not that we’re ready to talk about any of that now of course.

Listen in as we go over all the topics that’ll come up in the next few podcasts as soon as we’re capable of discussing them, including Night Vale episodes that haven’t broadcast yet and movies and TV we haven’t finished watching. Plus some random google searches, and Cricket the cat getting bitey because ow ow quit it cat ow ow. In short, a podcast that went off the rails in under nineteen minutes.

Binary System Podcast #113 – WTNV episode 121 “A Story of Love and Horror, Part 1: Barks”

This week the twins are recapping the pre-Valentine’s Day return of Night Vale, featuring one of Night Vale’s newest romantic couples, a pair that is so cute and well-adjusted we’re wondering exactly how it’s all going to go horribly horribly wrong.

And never being one to stick to a topic, we also talk about hangover cures, Oscar-nominations, cosplay possibilities for the upcoming convention season, and Stephen King books that are not allowed in our homes.

Binary System Podcast #112 – Peaky Blinders and Transformers Lost Light

This week the twins prove that they CAN be good at TV, darnit, because they’re both caught up on the latest season of Peaky Blinders, only a month after it dropped on Netflix so THERE. (Fair warning, there will be a-spoilers.)

After that they also catch up on what went down in issue 12 of Transformers Lost Light, which is where James Roberts KILLED A LOT OF PEOPLE WE LIKE. So, spoilers for that too.

And, because we’re never one to stick to a subject, we also get into the Till All Are One Annual, and the CW vampires, because of Stefan’s Hero Hair.

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

It’s the first episode of 2018 and we have a plan! And that plan is to fill up 10 minutes talking about our plans for the next few episodes before Elizabeth’s voice dies on account of the plague. It’s still a plan! Totally counts!
