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.

Binary System Podcast #54 – New York Comic Con!

This week’s podcast was recorded in New York City! Manhattan to be exact, just days after Binary System (and official Pixelated Geek photographer Captain Slack) (also known as Kathryn’s husband Nathan) attended New York Comic Con 2016! We geek out over the artists we got to meet, give a breakdown on our first attempts at Doctor Who cosplay, and talk about the awesomeness that is the Big Apple.

Binary System Podcast #53 – A Pre-NYCC Two-fer!

That’s right, this week we recap TWO episodes of Welcome To Night Vale, episodes 94 and 95,  just because we want to give YOU all the content. It has nothing to do with the fact that we’re running a month behind. Nope. Anyway. Moving right along…

After we discussed Felicia Day’s guest appearance and how she was apparently dating a dragon, we went on to the final issue of More Than Meets the Eye, the last episode of The Night Manager (and how it’s true that Tom Hiddleston really is more of a lover than a fighter,) the last episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day, and (finally) our Doctor Who cosplays are ready for New York Comic Con! Keep an eye out for a gallery of NYCC pics, we’re going to get as many cosplay photos of everybody else that we can possibly get.

Binary System Podcast #52 – Ramble Some More Ramblings

No Welcome To Night Vale recap this week, since the Binary System Podcast duo has been traveling all over time and space this month. Well, all over space anyway. Okay, we each spent a week in Florida visiting the ‘rents. The point is, we’re tired.

Not too tired, since we were able to read the latest issues of Tranformers MTMTE and Marvel’s Civil War II (warning: massive spoilers and speculations on our part to follow), and then watch The Night Manager series, the last season of Hannibal, a tiny bit of X-Men: Apocalypse, and the first two episodes of season two of Broadchurch (ouch, not sure how much more of that we can watch.)

And then Netflix had to go release the next seasons of Luther and Penny Dreadful, so now we’ve got even more to catch up on so we can talk about it on this podcast. It’s a tough job blah blah somebody’s got to blah blah so on and so forth.
