Binary System Podcast #35 – WTNV #87 “The Trial of Hiram McDaniels”

Binary System Podcast #35 – WTNV #87 “The Trial of Hiram McDaniels”

The long awaited trial of Hiram McDaniels has finally arrived. Aaaand now it’s done. That was fast.

We didn’t get to see much of the trial (Mayor Cardinal took the charge to “Tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth” a little too seriously, and they had to clear the courtroom), but the results were exactly what we WEREN’T expecting. Justice in Night Vale isn’t for wimps. Or anybody, really.

And weirdly, on the eve of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War we somehow ended up giving a little love to DC and the handful of shows and animations that they’ve done well. This was after we made snarky comments about Batman v Superman and Convergence, but the love got in there eventually.

Binary System Podcast #34 – Alice Isn’t Dead #4 “Factory By the Sea”

This week’s episode of Alice Isn’t Dead was like a Ray Bradbury short story; it was beautiful and surreal and oh so creepy. If the writers keep this up then we’re looking forward to many more chapters in this very odd story. (And we promise to stop accidentally calling the narrator “Alice” if you’ll just TELL US HER NAME EVENTUALLY.)

More topics discussed on this podcast: the Welcome To Night Vale live show, Elizabeth finally started watching Season 2 of Daredevil, Kathryn’s finally finished House of Cards, and the Saga comic book is still not for children.

Binary System Podcast #33 – WTNV #86 “Standing and Breathing”

In this week’s Night Vale episode we got to see a lot more of these Strangers that aren’t doing much, except standing there…and breathing… andthensuddenlyappearingrightnexttoyouwithoutmoving YIPE!

After that we talked about what we’re catching up on (Daredevil, House of Cards, and Hannibal) and then drop all the spoilers on Crimson Peak because Elizabeth finally watched it and we had to talk about how amazingly pretty it is. And don’t worry, we don’t make one single mention of Tom Hiddleston’s butt. Except here. Sorry. (Not sorry.)

Binary System Podcast #32 – Alice Isn’t Dead #3 “Nothing To See”

This week we’re recapping the latest episode of Alice Isn’t Dead and then we talk about the things that, on a deep and primitive level, scare the hell out of us. Then we cheer ourselves up with some Zootopia and Daredevil, freak ourselves out again with the idea of motherhood in The Walking Dead world, and then get the giggles by recommending that folks make sure their…bidness…is taken care of.

Also this is an open call for suggestions: what’s a good character to cosplay while wearing glasses?

Binary System Podcast #30 – Alice Isn’t Dead #2 “Alice”

On the latest episode of “Alice Isn’t Dead”, things are getting creepier for our narrator (who’s name we still don’t know), and we learn a few more pieces of important information about her (other than minor details, like, y’know, her name).

We also do a very quick WonderCon review, geek out over the fight scenes in Daredevil and (spoilers) talk about the second-to-last episode of the season for The Walking Dead. And how we TOTALLY DO NOT CARE who they kill off. Nope. Not a bit. Scuse us, we’re going to go hide under the bed now….

Binary System Podcast #29 – WTNV Episode #84 “Past Time”

Springtime! The days are getting longer, the weather’s getting warmer, and everyone’s flocking to the Little League tryouts. At the Haunted Baseball Field. With a youth coach who died at least a century ago and who talks like Dracula. Play ball!

Listen in as the twins recap Welcome To Night Vale episode 84: Past Time, and then give a (spoiler-free) look at the first couple episodes of the new season of Daredevil, speculate some more on The Walking Dead‘s upcoming bloodbath, and explain why iZombie is not as bad as you think.

Binary System Podcast #28 – Recapping “Alice Isn’t Dead: The Omelet”

Joseph Fink of Welcome To Night Vale has started a new podcast (no he hasn’t quit the old one, the man apparently doesn’t sleep) so of course the twins had to recap it. Listen in as they break down the first episode of Alice Isn’t Dead. And then they speculate all over the place about the upcoming season finale of The Walking Dead, because why not.

Binary System Podcast #27 – WTNV Episode #83 “One Normal Town”

Dude! Did you hear the news? Desert Bluffs is no more! I don’t even know how to process this information, I think I need to lie down…

When we’ve recovered, this week the twins recap the latest developments in Night Vale. We also talk about Kathryn’s trip to Hawk Manor Falconry (so fun!), the new podcast “Alice Isn’t Dead” by the Night Vale creative team (so intriguing!), and Elizabeth’s thoughts on finally finishing the entire first season of “Jessica Jones” (AAAAAAAAAA!)

Binary System Podcast #26 – Ramble all the Ramblings

Normally we’d be recording a Welcome To Night Vale recap tonight (that pesky three-hour time difference between East and West coast means Sundays and Mondays are the best days for recording), but Leap Year pushed March 1 back to a Tuesday, so we’ll have to put off our regular episode until next week. Damn you, February 29, you win this round!

FINE. We’ll just jump from one random thought to another, chasing the thread from the Oscars, to Lucifer, Labyrinth, falconry, Deadpool, and more. So THERE.
