Binary System Podcast #82 – Alice Isn’t Dead Part 2 Episode 3 “Abandoned Places”

This week we tried to recap the latest episode of Alice Isn’t Dead, but it’s this really atmospheric episode that doesn’t do well as a recap (it’s like trying to verbally describe an excellent sunset: you kinda had to be there.)

So we gave that up and talked about Only Lovers Left Alive (and strategic side-butt), the new trailer for Bladerunner 2049 (and how Jóhann Jóhannsson is doing the music and yes to all that), the upcoming Twin Peaks season and the book The Secret History of Twin Peaks and (*pushes glasses up*) the difference between an epistolary history and an oral one. (*Grins at you over the glasses.*) Heh. We said oral.

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.

Binary System Podcast #45 – Alice Isn’t Dead #10 “Thistle”

It’s the season finale of “Alice Isn’t Dead” and as much as we liked it, what we REALLY liked was the Disparition song they used at the end (we put a clip at the end of this podcast, it has a hammer dulcimer, we love it.)

After that we had to address this whole ridiculous Pokemon Go thing. Yes, we both created accounts. Don’t judge. Also if you’re going to cheat while incubating your eggs, please don’t put your phone in bad places. Just saying.

Binary System Podcast #43 – An Alice Isn’t Dead Twofer

Because we’re two episodes behind in our recap, this week you get two recaps for the price of one. And since each episode of Alice Isn’t Dead was heavy on atmosphere and light on plot, that takes about 15 minutes. We fill up the other 13 minutes with Luther, Downton Abbey, Breaking Bad, designer toys, and the scary (but strangely familiar) (if you’ve ever tried to get SDCC tickets) process of buying New York Comic-Con tickets. (Spoilers: we’re going to NYCC! Woo!!)

Binary System Podcast #39 – Alice Isn’t Dead #6 “Let’s Break Into A Police Station”

This week we recap the latest episode of Alice Isn’t Dead and ask the question: if you’re not a criminal mastermind, how do you break into a police station? (Answer: loudly. Before you can change your mind.)

We also discuss how season two of Hannibal is just amazing, and how season six of True Blood is just godawful.

Binary System Podcast #36 – Alice Isn’t Dead Chapter 5: Signs and Wonders

On this week’s episode we’re discussing Captain America: Civil War (don’t worry, no spoilers,) Daredevil (nope, no spoilers here either,) High-Rise (still no spoilers) and recap the latest episode of Alice Isn’t Dead. (Lots of spoilers there.)

Along the way we get into the finer points of when you should and should not go back to see if that’s really a dead body over there…

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 #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?
