The 42cast Episode 43: Clock Blocked

Sometimes just reading Geek Stranger isn’t enough. Sometimes you just have to listen… and where can you listen to me geek out with fellow nerds about whether or not you can be your own grandfather the perils of jumping around in a continuous timeline without access to Wikipedia? You’ll like Wyatt, but really it’s Hashtag TeamFlynn! :

Timeless gained a second year because the fans demanded it. In a season with reduced runtime and a lower budget Timeless fought for its very survival and told another interesting story through time. In this episode we delve into the changes between Timeless season 1 and season 2, talk about the growth in the characters, and what we think of the evolving Timeless storyline. Sadly, this episode was recorded before we knew that there would be a finale film, so our speculations on a season 3 will always remain just speculations. This week’s Five Minute Controversy asks if it’s a good thing for Disney to acquire Fox.

Sometimes just reading Geek Stranger isn’t enough. Sometimes you just have to listen… and where can you listen to me geek out with fellow nerds about that television show that was soooo good, and then soooo bad, but you’ll always remember that first season for all the feels it gave you? Come along as we talk about NBC’s attempt to recapture the magic that was one and a half seasons (let’s say) of Heroes with their continuation. It’s not just an attempt to cash in on the super hero craze! But also, it is definitely an attempt to cash in on the super hero craze. Is it worth watching? Can lightning strike twice? Did you forget about it but now that I’ve reminded you, you kind of feel like-“Oh yeah, I mean to watch that.”? Well, give a listen before you do!:

This week we talk all about Heroes, the NBC drama that took the world by storm back in 2006. Heroes treated the idea of superpowers in a serious manner and paved the way for so many series that we know and love. Just about everyone agrees that Heroes started strong and then fell apart, but no one agrees on the when and how.
