Binary System Podcast #112 – Peaky Blinders and Transformers Lost Light

This week the twins prove that they CAN be good at TV, darnit, because they’re both caught up on the latest season of Peaky Blinders, only a month after it dropped on Netflix so THERE. (Fair warning, there will be a-spoilers.)

After that they also catch up on what went down in issue 12 of Transformers Lost Light, which is where James Roberts KILLED A LOT OF PEOPLE WE LIKE. So, spoilers for that too.

And, because we’re never one to stick to a subject, we also get into the Till All Are One Annual, and the CW vampires, because of Stefan’s Hero Hair.

Review – Transformers Lost Light #13

“Now kneel, before I dispose of this disposable.”
“I know you won’t believe me, but I was going to kneel anyway.

Makes it easier to aim.”

James Roberts and Alex Milne team up for an issue where we see what happens when the Lost Light crew is locked inside a small ship for way too long: in order to keep from going crazy, they get a little bit nuts. See below for a preview of Lost Light #13.

Review – Till All Are One Annual 2017 (series finale)

I’ve been waiting for this one for months, and at the same time I hoped it’d never get here: the final issue of Till All Are One. In many ways the story ended the way I thought it might, but it got there by a really unexpected route. See below for a (spoiler-free!) (mostly!) review of Till All Are One Annual 2017.

Review – Transformers Lost Light #11

At long last, this issue we get the answer to the question that’s bugged me for months: how the hell did Getaway convince Blaster and Perceptor to turn into filthy mutineers? I can buy it from some obscure, background-filler, appeared-47-issues-ago-so-I’ve-forgotten-their-name-SORRY, but Perceptor? Blaster??

And the reason is both slightly unsatisfying and completely believable. And I can’t get into it if I’m going to dance around the plot points, so fair warning: see below for a completely spoiler-filled discussion of Lost Light #11.

Photo Gallery – Hasbro SDCC Exclusive: Primitive Skateboarding Optimus Prime

I finally got the chance to unbox Hasbro’s SDCC exclusive Transformer “Primitive Skateboarding Optimus Prime.” It only took me, what, four months? I was, uh, waiting for Black Friday and Cyber Monday? Yes? No? I admit it, procrastination is not my friend. But it’s an awfully attractive exclusive, and I can get behind the fact that in all seriousness the little Titan Master figure is named “Shreddicus Maximus.” See below for the photo gallery.

Binary System Podcast #100 – One hundred episodes of randomness

Binary System Podcast #100 – One hundred episodes of randomness

Binary System Podcast is celebrating 100 episodes! Well, not counting 20 or so recorded before we started calling them Binary System, plus some bonus episodes here and there, the odd fan art collections…you know what, it’s not important, happy one hundredth episode!

The plan was to record a retrospective of our favorite moments of the last one hundred (..or so..) episodes, starting with our favorite Night Vale episodes, our favorite Weather music, and our favorite fangirl “eeeeeee” episodes like Arrival, Sherlock, and Star Wars (plus a few “arrgh!” moments with Walking Dead.) But of course there were tangents into Blade Runner 2049, Wonder Woman, Friday the 13th the Series, American Horror Story, Saga, and Transformers, because of COURSE Transformers. 

Thanks for listening in! And if you’ve got a plan for what our next 100 episodes could be about…you’re more organized than we are!
