Dream Machines on SyFy

As most of you know I love me some reality TV, well TV in general. If you didn’t know just check out out my bio on our cast page. Any way we discuss a new show on the SyFy channel called Dream Machines. The conversation changes quickly in to how SyFy has lost it’s way.

In addition to Dream Machine we also talk about the AMC show Comic Book Men. During this discussion we learn that Tapeleg has a passion for comics and Mike is a bigger fan of the podcast than the TV show. Listen in and find out what I think of this show.

If you recall we discussed the documentary Comic Con on last week’s show. We are all excited to see this one but so far only Square Ross took the time to rent it and watch. See what he thinks of this movie and find out if you can follow the rat whole we go down. It’s lots of fun for all…

As I mentioned above Tapeleg joined us on this episode to share is expertise as the host of ‘The Rink Podcast’. The crew and I share our predictions as to who will win in the first round. We also had some fun to help Square out by making some interesting analogies between Sci-Fi characters and the hockey teams in the playoffs. Let us know if any of these analogies are accurate or helpful.

I also made a reference to Tim Thomas’s credit card commercial, check it out by watching below:

This and that

The crew is back minus Shady who couldn’t make it this week, but returning from his hockey nights Mike is back!  We kick things off with another cornucopia with bits and pieces from all over.  The crew talks some video games as well as rumors of Netflix picking up canceled shows to give them an additional leg up on the competition.

To 3D or not to 3D?

The crew talks/discus’s/debates if 3D is good or bad after reading a post which can be found here by Walter Murch.  What are your thoughts do you agree or disagree with the crew?  Also will some day our only choice be 3D films or will 2D movies still be around?

GOON and HUGO

We touch on the movies GOON and Hugo which just hit DVD/Blu-Ray/Digital release.  Whats unique about GOON is how its been marketed and released.  Long story short, it wasn’t picked up by a major US studio right away and ended up being released over in the UK first. It has made its release on many US outlets in the recent last couple months, now available Online through iTunes, March 28th on HDNet Movies and on March 30th in select theaters.  Mike talks about his thoughts on the movie and a little personal hockey history to go along with it.  Q and Mike also touch on HUGO and what they thought of the film and the “PSA” it was putting out at least according to Q.  This is also Martin Scorsese‘s first family film.

A little TV chatter

The crew tops of the show with a little bit of TV news and hopefully some insight into the big events of “The Walking Dead“, if you haven’t seen (Warning Spoilers Ahead) or heard (Warning… Spoilers Ahead) about what happened than you live under a rock as its been spoiled every which way and the other and was already known to happen due to the graphics novel’s storyline which the show is taken from.

We hope you enjoy listening and we would love to hear back from you. Feel free to join the conversation on twitter via @entfortherest you can also find the crew on twitter: Q (@aka_q), Mike (@cb_robinson), and me SquareRoss (@SquareRoss).

Until next time stay safe and enjoy your entertainment!
