Binary System Podcast #64: Happy (Geeky) New Year!

No new episode of Welcome To Night Vale this week. And the classic episode the Night Vale producers decided to air…isn’t one of our favorites.

SO, this week the twins decided to just kick back and talk about books they’ve finished, TV shows they’re watching, and some of the geeky Christmas presents we received. (Yes, our parents are still buying us comic books and Transformers toys. No, we don’t have a bit of shame about that.) Listen in as the conversation jumps from Mr. Robot to Sherlock (no spoilers) to Transformers with swords and why they’re so cool.

Review – Silence

By guest columnist Ben Zuk.

So here we are, a new year, with new movies to be watched in the church we like to call a cinema. One of its greatest priests Martin Scorsese releases the passion project he’s laboured hard to get on the screen for longer than I’ve been alive. A sense of anticipation and awe permeates the theatre, a feeling that remains throughout the majority of the movie.

Until it just doesn’t for the last 20 minutes or so.

Review – Sherlock Season 4 Episode 1 (Contains SPOILERS)

Review – Sherlock Season 4 Episode 1 (Contains SPOILERS)

This post does contains major spoilers, but is not a minute by minute review. Also contains foul language. Just a little.

Well, I finally quit repeating, ‘Oh, my God!’, long enough to type this review. I imagine if you already watched the episode you understand. Before the episode even started my heart was racing and I was wishing that Alan Cummings would quit talking. He is a very lovely man, PBS, but he isn’t the man that I was tuned in for.

Review: Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis

Review: Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis

Happy New Year everyone! Let’s ring in 2017 with a review of Anne Rice’s latest installment in the Vampire Chronicles.

The previous book in this series ended with Lestat becoming the host of the ancient force that connects all vampires throughout the world. The famous Brat Prince is now Prince Lestat, linked to the spirit Amel – who the vampires learned is fully sentient and aware. Anything that harms Lestat will now harm all other vampires, so Lestat will have to bear that responsibility for the rest of his existence.

You all knew that situation wouldn’t last.

Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis introduces another race, sheds new light on the origin of the vampires, and completely alters the course of their future. After this, everything’s going to change.

Review – Passengers

Review – Passengers

By guest columnist David Leninhawk.

“Passengers” has an interesting concept for a story. In the future, Earth has become overpopulated and too expensive to live on. A corporation has developed a new revenue stream out of colonizing distant planets, recruiting people to move there for free in exchange for paying 20% of their future earnings to that corporation for life, and sending cruise spaceships to and from those planets by putting people into “hypersleep”, where they can be preserved without aging for the duration of the journey.

In this film, a ship moving at half the speed of light takes 120 years to get to the colony. The film begins with a malfunction causing one passenger aboard the ship to wake up out of hypersleep 90 years before the ship will reach the colony, meaning he’ll grow old and die alone on the ship before it reaches the destination since he’s somewhere in his 30s.

Click the jump for a spoileriffic review of director Morten Tyldum’s space-age action(sort of) romance(?).

Review: Four Roads Cross

The fifth book in Max Gladstone’s Craft Sequence series came out months ago, and I read it immediately, and then put off writing the review so long I felt I had to re-read it to remember everything I wanted to say. And I didn’t mind one bit. See below for a review of Four Roads Cross.

Binary System Fan Art Gallery – 2016 Tributes

Binary System Fan Art Gallery – 2016 Tributes

Obviously, 2016 was a tough year in terms of losing celebrities we love. And if you know anything about Binary System, you know we love a good piece of fan art, especially the ones that kick us right in the feels.

This collection is just a tiny portion of the art that pays tribute to a tiny portion of the well-known people who passed away. There’s no way that we can get everybody, but if you have a bit of memorial fan art you’ve found (or made!) please send it over so we can add it.

And geez, cross your fingers that we don’t have anybody else to add to the list in the next three days.

Binary System Podcast #63 – WTNV #100 – Toast

It’s here! The one-hundredth episode of Welcome to Night Vale! It was amazing! And not what we were expecting!

(Seriously, if after 100 episodes this show can still surprise us, that means they’re doing it right.)

Listen in as the twins recap a Very Special Episode of Night Vale, and then discuss Netflix’s The OA (meh), The Night Manager (we’ve got Nathan watching it!), Mr. Robot (c’mon amazon, post season two to the Prime queue), Walking Dead (good job on the mid-season hiatus, AMC, you had us worried there) and Rogue One (no spoilers, partly because we wouldn’t do that to you and mostly because Kathryn hasn’t seen it yet.)

Also, Merry whateverholidayyou’recelebrating!
