Binary System Podcast’s Very Geeky Christmas

“All right, everybody, what do we all want to find under the Christmas tree?”

“MONEY!”

“Okay, yes, that would be nice, but what ELSE do we want?”

“GIFT CERTIFICATES!”

“Well that kind of falls into the money category, come on, there’s something else…”

“BOOZE?”

“Oh for crying out loud…GEEKY CHRISTMAS PRESENTS.”

In the spirit of a very sci-fi/fantasy/horror Christmas, here’s the BSP team’s recommendations for the perfect presents for the fangirl/fanguy in your life.

Binary System Podcast #62 – WTNV #99 “Michigan”

This week, intern Kareem is dealing with some family issues in his hometown Mitchigan. Mmmitcchigan. Mmisshtigan. Mishhigan. Mishhtigan. Okay we can’t quite get the pronunciation right, but it’s that state right between OhHEEoh and Canada. Kareem’s worried that his Mom sounds a little different in her latest letters. Nothing big, she just seems to think her son Kareem is still at home, so she doesn’t know who this total stranger is who keeps sending her letters. You know, the usual family stuff.

Binary System Podcast #61 – Doctor Strange

Not much going on over here in BSP land. Except for the fact that Kathryn has FINALLY seen the Doctor Strange movie!!

Listen in as the twins fangirl about Benedict Cumberbatch and his adorable cape. Then they discuss the box office figures of the best Marvel movies, and then talk about the effects and choreography in Doctor Strange. They mention the Night Vale touring show, and then a graphic novel Kathryn found. About Doctor Strange. It’s one of THOSE kinds of episodes.

BSP #60 – The Binary System Crapfest

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! (Or, if you’re not celebrating Thanksgiving, happy Thursday.) Want to kill some time while the turkey’s baking? Need to while away the minutes in the car? Want to get away from the holiday cheer with some good old fashioned negativity? We’re here to help! Presenting the first-ever Binary System Crapfest! In an attempt to keep all our complaints and judgeyness contained in one place (…which totally will not work…) we’re ranting about as many things as we can cram into a half hour, and no more than two minutes per rant. What makes our list of things we hate? Listen in to find out!

With one caveat: No. Politics.

Binary System Podcast #59, WTNV #98 “Flight”

We just listened to the latest Welcome To Night Vale episode and holy cow. Holy COW. Okay everybody, let’s put spoiler warning on right up front. This is the episode when Hiram McDaniels is scheduled for execution, and things happen in this one. There’s an awful lot that won’t ever be the same, and there’s going to be consequences, that’s for damn sure.

Short episode this week as the twins reel from the latest developments in Night Vale. And just in case everyone hasn’t had enough negativity over the last month, we’re also gearing up for our inaugural Crap Fest episode next week. Read On

Binary System Podcast #57 – The Orbiting Human Circus (Of The Air) #1

Yes, we’re a little behind schedule; the second episode of “The Orbiting Human Circus (Of the Air) has already dropped, and we’ve only just now gotten around to watching the first one.

So how was it? It’s…interesting. There are things we liked about it, and things we definitely didn’t. After a quick recap, we talked a little bit about the current Transformers: Revolution storyline (which we did not like, and we’re definitely not happy about it.)

To round it out we talked about Sense8, Hannibal, The Descent, and Skottie Young’s delightfully disturbing I Hate Fairyland.

Binary System Podcast #56 – The Walking Dead Season 7 Premiere

So, The Walking Dead, huh? How about that episode? Lots of important character development there. The cinematography was pretty good, and the lighting director really had to…oh who am I kidding? That episode was brutal and we’re still mad!

Sit back for a half hour of the twins going AAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Binary System Podcast #55 – WTNV Episode #96 “Negotiations”

Things are a little tense in Night Vale right now. Mayor Cardinal has opened negotiations with Hiram McDaniel’s sister Hadassah, who’s acting as representative of The Five-Headed Dragon world. The Mayor wants Hiram to face the consequences of attempted assassination of a head of state; Hadassah wants Hiram extradited back to their own world for punishment (said punishment consists of getting a sticker that says “I Overthrew!”, since that’s how government works dontcha know).

So after we discussed dragons and destruction and strange spaceships that don’t seem to have a point, we also talked about Looper, Penny Dreadful, and Luke Cage. Ah, Luke Cage. We’re a little worried we might catch some flak for this one. Listen in to find out why.
