Binary System Podcast #72 – Oscar Reactions

Binary System Podcast #41 – WTNV #90 “Who’s A Good Boy, Part 2”

The chaos in Night Vale comes to a crashing finale as the whole town joins in the battle. In the end, what happened? We can’t tell you. Seriously. We have no idea. Lots of opinions though.

Review: Lucifer

Review: Lucifer

I was going to rant for a bit about all the ways that the Lucifer TV series is different from the source material (originally from Neil Gaiman, and then spun off very capably by Mike Carey), but I’ve decided that’s not a very productive discussion. There’s no point to making a carbon copy of the original stories in a new format, and even if you could it wouldn’t guarantee that the results will be good. The TV show is going to have to succeed or fail on its own merits.

Besides, there are some positive things that have come out of the interest generated by the show. Like the fact that bookstores have started carrying the Lucifer graphic novels again, or Vertigo’s brand new comic book series written by Holly Black, continuing the story of the fallen angel and former ruler of Hell. So let’s talk about those, because Mike Carey’s series is one of my all-time favorites, and Holly Black’s continuation is growing on me with every issue.

Binary System Podcast #25 – WTNV #82 “Skating Rink”

What do horrifying growls, unexplained power-outages, and two collections of indescribable figures coming together mean? Why it must be the grand opening of the new Skating Rink at the Desert Flower Bowling Alley and Arcade Fun Complex! And it’s adorable. 

There’s also some discussion of the new Lucifer show, Jessica Jones, the return of The Walking Dead, and the continuing Pixelated Geek coverage of the Academy Awards.
