We haven’t updated in awhile. Elijah is going through some personal things right now that have shaken up his willingness to watch The CW shows for the moment. Sometimes the CW arrowverse can be a fun place to visit for lighthearted adventure and camp, but for the moment that place isn’t a place that Elijah wants to spend his time in, and so we’re taking a break from the CW shows.
The other thing is that both of us want to start being able to talk about whatever is on our minds without being obligated to keep up with four shows a week and focus only on that. There’s other things that have come up that we’ve badly wanted to talk about, and following the CW as a recap show has been hindering what we might otherwise talk about.
Our listeners might have noticed that we’ve been spending more and more time each episode talking about things that aren’t The CW shows. We’ve both been feeling like we need to expand what we are doing here with this podcast.
The CW shows are great, and we want to emphasize that we’re still fans, but our hearts are pulling us elsewhere.
Below is the podcast reaction to the movie Logan. We were both on a really big emotional high when we talked about this movie, and I think that it’s clear in the recording of this episode.
This podcast has always been a reaction podcast, and we don’t give out spoiler warning that often, but we want to emphasize for this movie you really want to watch it before you here our reactions. It’s an experience that really can be spoiled.
After this update, We’ll be looking at a rebranding and thinking about what we want the show to become. It may be a week or two before we get another update, and we may be doing that under a new name, and with a new blog site.
Please enjoy the Logan recap!
We recorded this podcast right after seeing the movie, and man our emotions are at an all time high as we reflect on what we’ve seen.
We react to the sheer force of the violence in the movie, and talk about what it means in the context of the x-men movie franchises.
We also talk about how Wolverine is treated as a Slasher legend in this film.
We touch on the sheer darkness of the movie, the tone is deeply depression with some moments of very dark humor. We talk about the implications of what dark past Logan and Professor X were involved in even if it isn’t revealed in the movie.
We also can’t help but talk about the social commentary in the movie. The movie seems to be referencing our current political climate, and has something to say about it.
