Lunchtime! This week Jim talks about his plans to rewire his house with ethernet cables, then we talk about some of the TV and games we watched and played over the holiday break, including Unpacking and Warhammer 40k: Space Marine.
Lunchtime! Jim tells the tale of his move and we answer a bunch of listener questions.
It’s an episode packed full of content this week, but it’s all centered around one show, Station Eleven. We talked for so long about this intriguing spiritual sibling to The Leftovers that we ran out of time to talk about anything else. We’ll be back soon enough to cover all the other media we consumed over the holiday break, but for now, enjoy this in-depth discussion on Station Eleven.
Lunchtime! We’re back from break with a whole bunch of stuff to talk about. Jim has closed on his house and has a laundry dilemma. He’s also been to the Cincinnati Zoo’s Festival of Lights off-season. A.Ron has been painting minis and his son has been buying the family Christmas gifts.
This time on Off the Clock we do a wrapup of Cowboy Bebop’s first and only season, talk about Wheel of Time and streaming service woes, decide whether 8-Bit Christmas is a new holiday classic and A.Ron does a Hallmark Christmas roundup. Then he talks a bit about Iain M. Banks’ “Culture” series before we finish off the episode with this month’s Patron topics.
Our final Merry Scary Christmas podcast is out. Be careful not to get it wet, and whatever you do, don’t feed it after midnight. That’s right, it’s the holiday classic Gremlins, ready for you to unwrap. It was a lot of fun to record, and we hope you get as much joy from the listen.
Christmastime! Join us for this super-sized, final Christmas episode of 2021 where we talk about Jim’s good house news, answer all the listener questions, then conduct our annual watch party of our One-Man Manger Christmas project.
We’ve got your second Merry Scary Christmas present ready to unwrap! It’s the 2015 horror comedy, Krampus! If you’ve never heard of the concept of Krampus, the shadowy counterpart to Santa who punishes naughty children, this film is a fun introduction to the ancient myth. It’s got a great cast including Adam Scott and Toni Collette. Join us for the podcast to hear our full breakdown.
The first movie in our slate of Very Scary Christmas movies is Rare Exports. It’s an unusual mix of mystery, horror, and the commercialization of Christmas that hails from Finland. Join us for this “festive” podcast to get in the spirit of the season!
