Binary System Podcast #111 – Twin Peaks: The Return and Hannibal

Welcome to Night Vale is still being good at a hiatus this January (bless ’em, we think they deserve a break), so we decided it was a good time for another “EEEEEEE!” fangirl-type episode. (Although in the case of Twin Peaks it’s less “EEEEEE!” and more “WHAT THE HELL, LYNCH?!”)

Spoiler warnings aplenty as the twins review everything they loved and hated about the first four episodes of Twin Peaks: The Return and the first season of Hannibal. (We’ll give you this one spoiler about Hannibal for free: nothing bad happens to Will’s dogs. Everyone else on the show is fair game, but the dogs are fine. You’re welcome.) Read On

Review: Twin Peaks – The Final Dossier

We still have time for one more book review before the end of the year. And what a strange year 2017 has been. Careers in DC and Hollywood have been wiped out (by bad behavior that, let’s face it, really should have been dealt with a long time ago), the political world has been a straight up circus, there’s an object in space that scientists thought might possibly be a sign of extra-terrestrial life, and did you see how the last Oscars ceremony ended?

So what the heck, let’s embrace the weirdness and pick for our last book review of the year something from the strangest show of the year: Twin Peaks. The Final Dossier by Mark Frost may not resolve all my feelings of “WHAT THE ABSOLUTE HELL, LYNCH?” that the ending of Season 3 left me with, but it gives the reader a lot more info. It also answers quite a few questions about how the characters ended up where they were when the season started, with a tiny taste of what happened next.

Binary System Podcast #108 – The Catch-Up Episode

It’s the last podcast before Christmas so let’s celebrate with an episode that’s…not really about Christmas at all. Ho ho ho?

Okay, so we recorded this two weeks ago and forgot it was the pre-Christmas episode, and in our defense we do manage to mention the Doctor Who Christmas special….last year’s Doctor Who Christmas special. (Sometimes we’re bad at TV.) But most of the episode is about the Battle Angel trailer (and her stupid, stupid eyes) plus the final episode of Futurama (did we mention we’re bad at TV?), The Crown, Twin Peaks The Return, and Let the Right One In, because nothing says Christmas like Swedish vampires.

Binary System Podcast #107 – Thor: Ragnarok and Stranger Things season 2

This is the second of two episodes we actually recorded last week (because time is weird) just to make sure the holiday travel time didn’t throw off our oh-so-carefully-prepared schedule (and if you believe we’re that organized we’ve got a bridge we can sell ya too. ANYWAY.) This week we’re talking about two things we’ve both finally seen: Thor Ragnarok and Stranger Things Season 2. (Fair warning, we’re gonna spoil all the things.)

And because we never did learn to focus, we also get into Twin Peaks and writing book reviews when the authors are going to actually read them.

Review: The Secret History of Twin Peaks

Review: The Secret History of Twin Peaks

Time to get a slice of cherry pie and pour yourself a cup of damn fine coffee (and hot!) This Sunday brings us the long-awaited continuation of the Twin Peaks series, twenty-five (well, twenty-six)(almost) years after the original series ended, leaving us with many, many unanswered questions.

In preparation for the new episodes, Mark Frost has given us The Secret History of Twin Peaks. The murder of Laura Palmer may have focused the world’s attention on Twin Peaks, but the more her mystery unfolded, the more clear it became that this little town’s weirdness goes way back.
