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 #35 – WTNV #87 “The Trial of Hiram McDaniels”

The long awaited trial of Hiram McDaniels has finally arrived. Aaaand now it’s done. That was fast.

We didn’t get to see much of the trial (Mayor Cardinal took the charge to “Tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth” a little too seriously, and they had to clear the courtroom), but the results were exactly what we WEREN’T expecting. Justice in Night Vale isn’t for wimps. Or anybody, really.

And weirdly, on the eve of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War we somehow ended up giving a little love to DC and the handful of shows and animations that they’ve done well. This was after we made snarky comments about Batman v Superman and Convergence, but the love got in there eventually.

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 #33 – WTNV #86 “Standing and Breathing”

In this week’s Night Vale episode we got to see a lot more of these Strangers that aren’t doing much, except standing there…and breathing… andthensuddenlyappearingrightnexttoyouwithoutmoving YIPE!

After that we talked about what we’re catching up on (Daredevil, House of Cards, and Hannibal) and then drop all the spoilers on Crimson Peak because Elizabeth finally watched it and we had to talk about how amazingly pretty it is. And don’t worry, we don’t make one single mention of Tom Hiddleston’s butt. Except here. Sorry. (Not sorry.)

Binary System Podcast #29 – WTNV Episode #84 “Past Time”

Springtime! The days are getting longer, the weather’s getting warmer, and everyone’s flocking to the Little League tryouts. At the Haunted Baseball Field. With a youth coach who died at least a century ago and who talks like Dracula. Play ball!

Listen in as the twins recap Welcome To Night Vale episode 84: Past Time, and then give a (spoiler-free) look at the first couple episodes of the new season of Daredevil, speculate some more on The Walking Dead‘s upcoming bloodbath, and explain why iZombie is not as bad as you think.

Binary System Podcast #28 – Recapping “Alice Isn’t Dead: The Omelet”

Joseph Fink of Welcome To Night Vale has started a new podcast (no he hasn’t quit the old one, the man apparently doesn’t sleep) so of course the twins had to recap it. Listen in as they break down the first episode of Alice Isn’t Dead. And then they speculate all over the place about the upcoming season finale of The Walking Dead, because why not.

Binary System Podcast #27 – WTNV Episode #83 “One Normal Town”

Dude! Did you hear the news? Desert Bluffs is no more! I don’t even know how to process this information, I think I need to lie down…

When we’ve recovered, this week the twins recap the latest developments in Night Vale. We also talk about Kathryn’s trip to Hawk Manor Falconry (so fun!), the new podcast “Alice Isn’t Dead” by the Night Vale creative team (so intriguing!), and Elizabeth’s thoughts on finally finishing the entire first season of “Jessica Jones” (AAAAAAAAAA!)

Binary System Podcast #20 – WTNV Episode 80: A New Sheriff In Town

Happy Christmas Eve, y’all! Don’t forget to say Merry Christmas to the government agents running 24-hour surveillance on your business and home. (But avoid saying their name out loud when you’re on the radio. That’s just rude. Jeez, Cecil, were you raised in a barn?)

Join the twins for the last podcast of the year as we recap Welcome To Night Vale Episode #80, where we get to know the new sheriff (he likes interpretive dance), find out more about the trial of the century (Hiram McDaniel’s Violet head will be the key witness against the other four), and hear the proposal to tag all Desert Bluffs visitors so we’ll know who in our community are the unwelcome ones. That’s…not good.

There’s also a little more discussion about Star Wars. Which comes as a surprise to no one.

Binary System Podcast #18 – WTNV Episode 79: Lost in the Mail

This week the twins help celebrate Remembrance Day in Night Vale, which involves the usual parades, speeches, Emissaries from the Blood Space War, and fidelipac cartridges. Also there’s some Walking Dead, Doctor Who, and Star Wars in there. We mean in the podcast, not in Night Vale. Ooo, a Night Vale/Star Wars crossover. Get on that, fanartists!
