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!

Binary System Podcast #62 – WTNV #99 “Michigan”

This week, intern Kareem is dealing with some family issues in his hometown Mitchigan. Mmmitcchigan. Mmisshtigan. Mishhigan. Mishhtigan. Okay we can’t quite get the pronunciation right, but it’s that state right between OhHEEoh and Canada. Kareem’s worried that his Mom sounds a little different in her latest letters. Nothing big, she just seems to think her son Kareem is still at home, so she doesn’t know who this total stranger is who keeps sending her letters. You know, the usual family stuff.

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 #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.

It’s an “On The Road” edition of BSP as Kathryn’s recording from the wilds of Florida, land of…heat and…rain and…alligators? Yes okay she’s sipping a glass of red wine from our parents’ place, but still. We go through hardships for you.

Anyway, we recap a Welcome to Night Vale episode full of dragons and stolen cars, and then talk about the Serial podcast, Wooden Overcoats, the final episode of Torchwood, and the latest update on our Doctor Who cosplay for New York Comic Con!
