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 #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!

Binary System Podcast #48 – WTNV #92 “If He Had Lived”

This week’s episode of Welcome to Night Vale was so wonderfully weird, such a jewel of strangeness, we’re just going to dance around the details in the recap because we really really want you to listen to it yourself. Instead we discuss the additional weirdness that is The Last Days of New Paris, and Saga, the beautiful art of Civil War 2, and how last month’s issue of Transformers More Than Meets The Eye ripped our hearts out. Seriously, IDW, how could you? (We don’t want you to stop, but seriously. Ow.)

If all the news stories about travel delays are getting you down, you’ll be happy to hear that the 12:37 to Night Vale has arrived right on time! Well, one hundred years late. On tracks that don’t exist anymore. At a station that was torn down and turned into a baseball field decades ago. Oh, and no one who goes inside has been heard from since. All aboard!

Listen in as the twins dissect the latest episode of Welcome To Night Vale, then ramble some rambles about Stranger Things, Suicide Squad, Zootopia, Batman v Superman, Inception, Niagara Falls, fan art, and maybe just a little bit of Pokemon Go, and how to pretend that’s not what you’re doing with your phone.

Binary System Podcast #41 – WTNV #90 “Who’s A Good Boy, Part 2”

The chaos in Night Vale comes to a crashing finale as the whole town joins in the battle. In the end, what happened? We can’t tell you. Seriously. We have no idea. Lots of opinions though.

After the recap we were all over the place, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Civil War II, Saga, Cowboy Bebop, Lucifer, the Fall, and any other distraction we could fit in a half hour.

Binary System Podcast #40 – WTNV #89 “Who’s A Good Boy, Part 1”

“Who’s a good boy?” Not really a question that you’d expect to strike fear in the hearts of podcast listeners. But it does.

Once we shook off the Welcome To Night Vale heebie-jeebies we talked about Daredevil and The Fall, and then about the final seasons of Hannibal and True Blood, which we haven’t watched yet because some streaming platforms are biding their time. And by biding their time we mean stingy and by some we mean Amazon Prime.
