Nat Geo Announces New Docu-Drama, ‘Year Million’

Nat Geo is excited to announce YEAR MILLION, a new six-part documentary-drama series that premieres May 15, 9/8c. Narrated by Laurence Fishburne, YEAR MILLION explores what it will be like to be human approximately one million years into the future. Depending on your perspective, the future can be thrilling… it also can be frightening. Imagine if the robots we create will one day outsmart us and take over. Or imagine a world where mortality is no longer a given. What if Earth is no longer our home?

A conversation about Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Stranger Things, Deadwood, Better Call Saul, Zombies Run, West Wing, and more

Elizabeth of the Binary System podcast and sister Hannah had a late-night conversation about television writing that quickly spun into a critique of at least seven different series. We place it here because it’s Monday and it needed to go somewhere. If you disagree with anything we called “slightly overhyped” (looking at you, Supernatural) (You too, Stranger Things) please chime in at the comments!

Binary System Podcast #80 – Alice Isn’t Dead Part 2 Episode 2 “The Mouth of the Water”

It’s our 80th episode, woo hoo! Enjoy this…completely regular episode. You thought we’d have a plan? Have you met us?

Anyway, we recap the latest Alice Isn’t Dead episode and wander off into weird tangents like Salt Water Taffy vs. Tangy Taffy vs. Laffy Taffy vs. Pixie Sticks vs. Fun Dip vs. Tang (we have opinions) and the movie version of Stephen King’s 1408 (not great, except for this one scene…)

Then we figure out whether or not the second season of Broadchurch is going to be worth the inevitable heartbreak and..look, we know we said we weren’t going to talk about Iron Fist, but we’ve got thoughts about Iron Fist, because we totally see what they were going for but man did they miss the mark.

Review: The Fifth Season

Posted by: |

Review: The Fifth Season

On the ironically-named world of Stillness, where earthquakes and volcanoes are treated like particularly bad weather, something happens to break the planet open much, much worse than it’s ever been broken before.

A mother leaves her village, her own world having ended just slightly before the rest of the world did.

A little girl discovers a new talent and is exiled from her family for it. She’s soon taken away to begin training in her new life as an orogene.

And in the glittering city of Yumenes, a talented young woman is rising through the ranks of orogenes, clawing her way towards, if not freedom, then at least a little privacy and the right to say “no” every once in a while. She’s sent on an assignment with one of the most powerful orogenes in existence, and gradually finds out how much that power is worth.

N.K. Jemisin’s 2015 novel The Fifth Season is the first book in what I hope is a very long series. It’s science fiction (with some horror) in a fantasy setting. It’s an epic adventure with a tiny bit of romance, lots of tragedy, and the story starts with the end of the world. This is the kind of book you fall into and then stumble out of days later, wondering what the hell just happened and when can you have some more.
