An intriguing new miniseries popped up on Netflix recently. From the trailer, Godless seemed like a subversive new western with bold female characters. Is this a nice holdover until season two of Westworld? Does it live up to the billing? Craig gives a preview.
The neo-noir sci-fi Blade Runner is considered one of the greatest science-fiction films of all time and features many of the same themes as Westworld. In anticipation of the sequel Blade Runner 2049, we thought it would be good to visit the original. Craig, Heather, and Jake preview their discussion of the film.
So much has happened this offseason, we thought it would be good to recap everything. Craig and Heather discuss Creative Arts Emmy wins, Funko bobble heads, season 2 teasers, returning characters, and new cast members.
Hector returns! Rodrigo Santoro has been confirmed for Westworld Season 2. Also, Dolores doesn’t have a monopoly on female robots on the verge of sentience. In Ex Machina (2015), Ava was kicking ass and realizing consciousness. Craig, Jake, and Lauren Faber (a new voice on the podcast) preview their discussion of the sci-fi thriller.
Exciting Westworld news! Jimmi Simpson announced he will be returning for season 2 and we have three new cast members joining the fold. Also Craig and Jonathan preview their discussion of another theme park gone awry, the 1993 sci-fi classic Jurassic Park.
Louis Herthum, otherwise known as Peter Abernathy, provided one of the biggest highlights of season one. His performance at the end of the pilot episode was the moment we knew Westworld was going to be a special show. Here’s a preview of the full-length interview coming next week.
