The Mandalorian: This Is The Way

On December 20th, the last chapter of the newest Star Wars trilogy will be released and mark the end of an era in Star Wars storytelling, for better or for worse. In celebration, Lindsay and Elisabeth are taking this whole month to talk about different things involving the Star Wars universe and the stories it tells, and what better way to kick off the month than with a discussion about Disney+’s newest hit, The Mandalorian? Special guest host Aurelia even chimes in her opinions as a non-fan, Lindsay talks about her first impressions, and Elisabeth discusses her feelings as a long-time fan of a galaxy far, far away. We also just had to address the eye-rolling comments made by Kathleen Kennedy and how the Expanded Universe could still potentially impact Star Wars canon. Also in this episode, Lindsay talks about how the 501st - a fan run organisation - pitched in to help The Mandalorian’s production, and Elisabeth compares and contrasts Obsidian’s Fallout: New Vegas and The Outer Worlds and how they seem to stick with what works for them in the realm of RPG’s.

The Mandalorian: This Is The Way

Episode 116 - Disney+

There has been a lot of buzz generated about Disney's new streaming service that started before it even launched, and now that it's been available for about a week and a half now, Lindsay and Elisabeth want to talk more about it! Lindsay details her personal experiences with the service, including technical issues, and both hosts discuss some of the media that's offered. Between most of the Marvel movies (sorry Spider-Man fans, it doesn't look like Sony is relenting for now), The Mandalorian, all of the original Disney movies and series and more, there's a lot to choose from, especially when it seems like most of the content gives us nostalgia vibes! So join us this week as we talk about what we'll watch on the service, the original content we love and why, and even some recommendations directly from us. Also, Elisabeth breaks down the three big issues and controversies currently plaguing Fallout 76 and Bethesda (yes, there's more!) and Lindsay talks about spoiler etiquette and the ...

Episode 116 - Disney+

Geek Feuds

There have been many a feud that have lit the fandom world on fire, between who would win in a fight (Jason vs. Freddy, Alien vs. Predator, Juggarnaught vs. The Blob, Goku vs. Superman), to which Doctor is the best, to which gaming console reigns supreme, to even petty, pedantic arguments like whether or not the Balrog from Lord of the Rings has wings.This week, Lindsay and Elisabeth examine some of these feuds, look at the evidence for either side, and take a stand for themselves, if they find a place a stand. We did leave out some major arguments, like Star Wars vs. Stark Trek and whether Star Wars should be considered science fiction or fantasy and why, because we think they deserve an episode all their own! So tune in to see whether we covered a topic you feel passionate about and let us know whether you agree with us or not. Also, Elisabeth gives us the low-down on The Outer Worlds and how well Obsidian has done (especially compared to certain other gaming companies), and Linds...

Horror History 101

Tis the season to be spooky, and in the spirit of the holidays, it seemed only fitting to discuss the horror genre. Guest film, indie filmmaker, and fellow podcaster Brian Cottington sits down with Elisabeth to talk about the origins of horror movies, how they've served as entertainment over the years, how they've reflected the issues and served the audiences of their times, and just how difficult it is these days for unique and brand new stories to make their mark in the world of remakes that Hollywood trends toward. Brian also gives us some insight into filmmaking and how indie artists are impacted these days and how they can try to curb being run over by the bigger studios and develop both their art and their audience. In conjunction with the theme of both the holiday and the episode, Elisabeth talks about the infamous Gary Vault from Fallout 3 and how it seems like it would fit in the Cold War era of horror filmmaking. Whether you just dabble in horror movies, are a huge horror ...

Party Like It's 1999

As Halloween approaches - and with it, seasonal parties - Elisabeth and Lindsay discuss how they might throw their own fandom-themed party. From fun groups to food to how they might execute it, they get into the nitty gritty … and Lindsay potentially receives a new life calling in the arena of geek-themed event coordination. Whether based in Fallout, Dragon Age, Elder Scrolls, Game of Thrones, Marvel, or DC, there might be some ideas for you to try out this year! Also in this episode, Elisabeth talks about how Bioware using recurring characters in unique ways makes the world of Thedas richer and more real, and Lindsay gives her PSA for us to prepare for the launch of Disney+ and the budgeting and hard decisions geeks may need to make soon.

SFX Makeup

Makeup and special effects have been a mainstay in Hollywood for decades, though as of late movies have trended toward incorporating more and more CGI … with both good and bad results. With guest host and special effects makeup artist Noelle Hetzel, Elisabeth and Lindsay discuss their favorite makeups as well as which movies successfully and artfully incorporated both practical and CGI elements and which ones leaned too heavily on CGI and veered into the uncanny valley. Also in this episode, Elisabeth compares the development times between the Dragon Age games and how that affected each game and where the developers put their focus for Dragon Age 2.

New Intros for the MCU

With the MCU’s expansion into the world of Disney Plus, they’re not just adding new shows but also new characters … well, new in the sense they have yet to be formally introduced in the MCU, as they’re all still well-established in the comic world. Marvel fans who are primarily MCU fans and haven’t ventured far into the comic world may be caught off guard by the announcement of series for characters like Moon Knight, She-Hulk, and a Ms. Marvel that isn’t Carol Danvers, so Elisabeth takes Lindsay through the basics with each one, gives a little backstory and run down on them, and a little speculation on how their series might play out. From Marc Spector and his struggle with mental illness, to Jennifer Walters and her acceptance of being permanently different (i.e. big and green!), to Kamala Khan’s perspective of being a Pakistani American who is both Muslim and a superhero, these “new to MCU” characters offer a nice variety for its fans to identify with. Also in this episod...

Dark Matter, Dimension Hopping, and Alternate Universes

Sci-Fi as a genre has evolved over time, giving us fanciful technology we didn’t dare dream of … until they became reality. Nowadays, it seems the trend du jour leans not toward space travel and laser weapons but instead toward time travel and alternate realities. In this episode, Lindsay breaks down some books and series she’s been reading and watching lately and discusses with Elisabeth the science and the fantasy and where it all seems to blend together, complete with thoughts by Stephen Hawking. Also in this episode, Elisabeth talks about the mass relays from Mass Effect and how they’re used to transport ships from one end of the universe to the other, and Lindsay talks about the science behind Marvel’s bifrost in our last weekly episode before we go bi-weekly!

Ending or Bust?

With the end of Game of Thrones and Marvel’s Phase Three this year - and the announcement of the last season of Supernatural on its heels - it almost seems like a lot of geeky things are coming to an end. But, in the case for some, the ending doesn’t come together so well, as it’s happened in the past. Shows like Dexter, Battlestar Galactica, Incredible Hulk, and Lost have all suffered from lackluster finales compared to how well the show has developed before. But in other cases, fans have been left without any real finale or resolution at all. Shows like Firefly - who, despite the release of Serenity, still didn’t get the sendoff it needed - My Name is Earl, Metalocalypse, and even Batman: The Animated Series have all ended suddenly and abruptly, with no ending to witness at all, satisfactory or not. So which is better? Would it be better to suffer through a bad ending, or is it better to just leave it cut off with no resolution? Elisabeth and Lindsay compare notes from their f...

Least Favorite Villains

Villains are an integral part of storytelling. Heroes need an adversary, a reason to fight, a reason for us to root for them. At the same time, however, if a villain isn't well-written, it can bring down an entire story, and while we've talked here and there about what makes a good villain, Elisabeth and Lindsay discuss their least favorite villains in this episode, breaking down their history, their abilities, their relationship to the hero, and why they just don't work. These antagonists are not the "we love to hate them" variety, these are the ones that just have us rolling our eyes whenever we see their name. Also in this episode, Elisabeth discusses Bioware and its villain swapping technique in Mass Effect and Dragon Age: Inquisition and Lindsay talks about Disney villains!
