Binary System Podcast #96: The Kitchen Sink Episode

Since there’s no Night Vale to recap this week we figured we’d just talk about everything else, starting with our family in the path of Hurricane Irma (spoilers: they’re fine) and upcoming travel plans that are making our recording schedule interesting.

After that we talk about a Transformers game that Kathryn’s ridiculously addicted to very enthusiastic about and she’d like you to play too so she can get more points you can enjoy it as well. Then we discuss why we haven’t finished watching Defenders yet, and it has something to do with this Netflix show about drug deals, we won’t say which, but it rhymes with “Narcos” and it’s (appropriately) addictive.

Also we try to talk briefly about this amazing 80’s show called Friday the 13th the Series, and fail. To talk briefly. We even had “BRIEFLY” written in our notes and underlined and we still went on and on.

Preview and Review – Transformers Lost Light #9

Last issue (spoilers!) (no seriously if you haven’t read last issue quit reading!) we found out exactly how obsessed Nautica is with bringing Skids back: she’s been hiding his brain-module behind her eye patch. Inside her head. She was keeping his dead brain inside her head. It’s a gesture of extreme devotion and oh my lord is it creepy. I mean it makes wearing a vial of your lovers blood around your neck look reasonable and understated in comparison.

As creepy as it is, it’s still not as far as Nautica’s willing to go.  See below for preview pages and a review of Lost Light #9.

SDCC 2017 – Mairghread Scott & David Rodriguez of IDW’s Transformers

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con we got to talk for a few minutes with IDW’s David Rodriguez and Mairghread Scott, writers for IDW’s Transformers. We discussed the end of Mairghread’s Till All Are One series (and why she wrote Starscream the way she did, because almost against our will we became huge fans of the character) and about IDW’s new First Strike arc and what that means for the Transformers and G.I. Joe. Check it out after the jump!

But things ARE looking bad.”
“Such is the way of combat, storyteller…if war looked good, why would we do anything else?”

It’s a story about medieval Primes and ancient battles, while in the present Starscream smirks and says snarky things about humans. See below for preview pages and a review of Optimus Prime #10.

Review – Transformers: The Last Knight

Michael Bay’s (apparently) final Transformers movie was a marvel of special effects and glorious, beautiful explosions. A lot of people really didn’t like it.
Guest columnist Narrator26 weighs in.

Michael Bay’s latest installment into his much-maligned Transformers series rolled out this past weekend to serve yet another overlong feast of bloated robot mayhem. And with Bay finally vacating the director’s chair after this entry, one might be forgiven for thinking that he would try to go out on a high of sorts; predictably though, that’s not the case.
