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.

The 42cast Episode 41: By Your Powers Combined

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 capitalism being the true savior of the universe the rag tag band of Berlanti misfits still making a mess of time and, lets be honest, our feelings? It’s the guilty pleasure you aren’t in the least bit guilty about!:

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow became the underdog of the Berlanti universe. Coming out of a season 1 panned by critics and fans, Legends gained more solid footing in its second season. Now, we assemble a cast to discuss season 3 of the series. We talk about the major shakeups to the cast, how permanent we think they are, and what it means for the series overall. We talk about a new team up of villains and whether they were able to hold interest better than the Legion of Doom. We also discuss how a plush toy may change the entire face of Berlanti television and eat a hole in our wallets before discovering that no one on the cast knows who Captain Planet is. It’s only on this year-ending episode of The 42cast.

The 42cast Episode 31: A Hela Good Time

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 a god that is like both a pirate and an angel? For some, Thor: Ragnarok was too great a departure from the tone of the previous films, and for others it was the perfect solution to one of the MCU’s most promising, but struggling franchises. Does it work? Was it too much? Can a haircut really make that much difference?:

It’s been over six months, since Thor: Ragnarok hit theaters. Teaming up Thor with the Hulk, the film boasted a higher humor content than previous movies in the Thor franchise and also ended up being the highest grossing film in the series to date. This week, the 42cast talks about the movie, it’s place in the Thor franchise as well as the MCU in general, and what we’d like to see out of the franchise in the future.

The 42cast Episode 30: Turning the Clocks Back

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 a time travel show that refuses to quite die, and has actually “changed” time at least once? Listen in as we chat about NBC’s more recent attempt at genre, Timeless and about history and science and character development and whether or not we all wish a sibling could be wiped from the timeline:

Last year was the year of time travel shows. Most of them were canceled, but one series, Timeless, turned back the clocks and changed its destiny. In this episode we take a look back at Timeless season one to discuss it’s premise, characters, cast, and why we felt that this show is worthy of going on.

The 42cast Episode 28: Is Fandom Broken?

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 a cancer is spreading in genre fandom? Come along as we talk about what’s bad about… us. Maybe we’re just scratching the surface here, and maybe in the months since this was recorded fandom hasn’t exactly stepped up in Rick & Morty, Star Wars and DC television to prove us right or wrong. Oh, but for the good old days of fan outrage over women as Ghostbusters. It was a simpler time…:

We all know of examples of fandom behaving badly, and in this episode we delve into the question of whether or not fandom is “broken”. It’s a complicated issue as we examine the interaction between fans and creators and how fans relate to other fans.

The 42cast Episode 27: Heroes – Where Did It Go Wrong?

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.
