Season 7 episode 8 is here! The clone crew is squarely in the middle of a "who can we trust" crisis. With only one Monitor confirmed, and countless others still maintaining their deep cover, panic is starting to build. Thanks for listening!

Orphan Black season 1 episode 7 is out! Time to figure out the whole "monitor" situation folks...though, we don't actually get any solid answers at the end of the day. All we know is that Olive-YAY has some peeps who he trained to be sneaky and infiltrate the lives of the clone crew. But, he doesn't seem to want us dead, which is surprising. Thanks for listening!

Welcome back! This week the clone crew dip their toes into themed spousal torture, paired with a few conspiracy theories. The idea that all three of us are being constantly monitored by wolves in suburban clothing...well, that doesn't sit well with everyone present. Thanks for listening!

It's episode 5 of Orphan Black this week and the game of cat and mouse got a few new players! Someone is watching the clone crew... intimately. People from our lives start to appear suspicious and untrustworthy, all the while, we fumble our way towards a foggy realization. Thanks for listening!

Time for Orphan Black episode 4! Pieces are starting to fall into place as the mysterious killer reveals herself. She also reveals her love for objectively disturbing kids toys and stick figures. Who is playing the cat in this game of cat and mouse? Thanks for listening!

Apr 15, 2020

Season 1 episode 3 of Orphan Black! Push is coming to shove and our titular lead, Sarah, needs to make some game time decisions. The whole "skipping town with her daughter" thing isn't working out as planned. Things change pretty fast when your clones start being murdered by another one of your clones. Thanks for listening!

Howdy, and welcome to episode 2 of Orphan Black. This week, all of the hosts get scenes! Turns out, they also all have the same face. Sarah/Beth is still frantically trying to keep her tower of lies standing long enough to get out of dodge. But that tower is getting taller and more unstable by the second. Maybe the only way to get out of the conspiracy is to play along. But what even IS the conspiracy? Thanks for listening!

It's finally time! Welcome to season 1 episode 1 of Orphan Black. Collin had the reigns thrust into his hands and ended up being the only host with an episode. So, come meet Sarah, aka: Beth. A manipulative and impulsive woman bent on fixing her past mistakes through a series of schemes. But, her own plots see her unwittingly wrapped into something bigger than she realizes. At least, I think so. I haven't seen this show before. Thanks for listening!

Well, it's time, friends! The series wrap-up for Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Honestly, it feels a little surreal to be posting this episode after years of digging into the Buffyverse.

Here it is, folks! Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 7 episode 22....we are done. It's the ultimate showdown, the final fight, the last hurrah, etc etc. Arcs are wrapping up, people are kissing, and characters are dying. The First thought it could come into OUR city and throw hands? Nah, we have 7 seasons of butt kicking under our belt and we are here to save the world. Thank you, as always, for listening!

Feb 26, 2020

Season 7 episode 21?! If my sources are to be believed this is the second to last episode of Buffy. Holy cow! Buff is back with the gang and even has a cool scythe (identification still pending) that I guess we can use to win the war? We will get back to that. This episode is all about flushing out character stories and motivations. Thanks for listening!

Feb 20, 2020

Welcome to season 7 episode 20! Everything is speeding towards an end, we just aren't sure what that end is going to look like yet. What we do know is that Buffy is currently banished from the house and Faith has taken up the title of leader. But, can she lead a divided fighting force to victory? I hope so. Thanks for listening!

Feb 12, 2020

It's season 7 episode 19 this week and it's time to deal with the repercussions of unplanned attacks. Potentials die, enemies become emboldened, and core team members are maimed. But, what are we going to do about it? Everyone knows that Buffy's call was wrong but a call needed to be made. With the world on the brink of destruction, how many second chances can we realistically give? Thanks for listening!

Feb 5, 2020

Howdy friends and welcome back to Sunnydale! We even brought Faith with us to help manage the impending apocalypse. Which I'm sure we will get around to, right after we wrap up all this in-fighting. Another huge shout out to Julia for representing her chaotic energy. Buffy finally makes a stand here and chooses her moment to test the strength of our militia. Not against The First, but, against a mini-boss named Caleb. Sure hope that works out. Thanks for listening!

Jan 29, 2020

Howdy out there, good listeners! Welcome back to another episode of....Angel? It's season 4 episode 15, and Willow/Faith are here to give you all the dirty deets. Turns out, Angel lost his soul (again) and Faith is in a coma (again). So, Willow needs to do some cool magic to save the day (as always). Hope you enjoy this small peek into the world of Angel. We will see you back in Sunnydale next week.

Happy Wednesday! It's season 7 episode 17 and we have the wonderful Nick back at the table to talk Spike. This week the gang is plundering the murky depths of Spike's past, trying to find a fix the trigger that The First is using to manipulate him. But, Principal Fine has other plans for William the Bloody. Thanks for listening!

Jan 15, 2020

Welcome to season 7 episode 16! Big ol' special thank you to Holly for guesting this week and giving a voice to the one and only Andrew. Baker, story teller, and chronic helper. Andrew is attempting to document our attempts to thwart The First. But, is he a reliable narrator? How much can we trust our old enemy/new friend? Thanks for listening!

Jan 8, 2020

Season 7 episode 15 is out! Slowly but surely the gang of friends, potentials, and teachers is turning into an army. But is that army going to be enough to stop whatever The First has in mind for this world? It doesn't seem that way at the moment and the stress of that realization is infesting every aspect of our lives. We need a win and we need help. Hopefully we get it this episode! Thanks for listening.

Jan 1, 2020

Welcome to season 7 episode 14 everyone! Giles is back in full swing helping with the whole impending apocalypse thing. But while he is making horrifically violent and information flash cards where are Buffy and Xander? Maybe on a date or two? A really dangerous game in Sunnydale. Thanks for listening!

Dec 26, 2019

It's season 7 episode 13 this week and we have some serious developments to discuss! Spike is in really rough shape, even more than usual. Can Buffy get him the help he needs before the chip in his brain re-kills him? Meanwhile, Willow and Warren are seemingly sharing a single body and wrestling for control of it. But he is dead, so, how is that possible? Is this The First's doing or is it something else? Thanks for listening!

Dec 18, 2019

Welcome to season 7 episode 12! At this point the gang is adding new potentials like it's going out of style. But can Buffy do her part to prepare them all for the short, brutal life of a Slayer? Not alone, given her qualities as an educator. Luckily she has the help of a stable and trustworthy ally. Which is Spike, obviously. Thanks for listening!

Dec 11, 2019

Welcome back to season 7! After a few weeks away, the gang's here and ready to dive into the final episodes of the series. Buffy is teaching the new potential slayers some hard lessons in episode 11. Lessons like “Buffy is super strong and can kill pretty much anything.” and “We can communicate telepathically now.” These fresh faces need to understand the dangers of Sunnydale before they go getting themselves dead. Though, if I were a betting man, I would put down money on a few dead teens in the coming months. Thanks for listening!

We're halfway done with season 7 which means we are going to take our regular small break from Buffy. This week we have a movie for you! The gang sat down to watch Bad Times at the El Royale. A great movie by all accounts. A movie where everyone has a secret, everyone has a gun, and everyone has an attitude. Next week there won't be an episode, but then we are off to finish the show!

Nov 20, 2019

Season 7 episode 10 is here and so is Giles! He is back from his overseas horse ranch, or whatever it is he is doing nowadays. He also brought us some new friends who love cookies and are into murdering vampires. If we need an army to beat "The First" then we are moving in the right direction. Thanks for listening!
