Binary System Podcast #51 – WTNV #93 “Big Sister”

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.)

Binary System Podcast #47 – WTNV #91 “The 12:37”

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.

Binary System Podcast #37 – WTNV #88 “Things Fall Apart”

The title to this week’s Welcome To Night Vale episode sums it up: things in Night Vale are falling apart. It’s bad enough that the gas, electricity, and water is out, but now the surveillance cameras aren’t working? Everybody panic! (Quietly. Where the Sheriff’s Secret Police can’t hear you.)

(Kidding. They can always hear you.)

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.)
