In our final trip into the world of The Matrix we test Mike’s capacity for putting concepts out into the world and summoning them into being (aka Big Idea Energy), and just generally agree a surprising amount, likely signalling the end of days. Fitting! Continue reading The Sky Scorchers – Episode 4: The Animatrix

The Season 5 finale introduces us to Jacob, the man we’ve heard so much about, but have never seen until today. We learn how Jacob touched the lives of several Oceanic 815 survivors at crucial points in their life, leading to a discussion as to what Jacob’s purpose may be. In 2007, all things culminate at the four toed statue when “Locke” and Jacob have their showdown, and Richard learns that all may not be what it seems.

Our survivors are trying to correct the timeline in 1977 by using the hydrogen bomb to explode the Hatch. This time period give the hosts their chance to vent some frustrations with the character choices, and how some of what the characters stated expressed how the fans were feeling at the time. The episode ends of overall thoughts on Season 5. Continue reading From Broadcast Depth – Episode 53: ‘The Incident’ Parts 1 & 2

The 100th episode of LOST provides the long awaited flashback episode for one Daniel Faraday, where we witness how Eloise Hawking had a hand in guiding Daniel to the Island, why she did so, and that maybe his “whatever happened, happened” mantra has some exceptions.

In the next episode, Locke exposes Ben as a fraud while stating a shocking mission, Jack feels he found his purpose as to why he returned to the Island, and Sawyer and Juliet look to leave as they’re finally exposed in 1977. The table is set for next week’s Season 5 finale in this historic podcast episode! Continue reading From Broadcast Depth – Episode 52: ‘The Variable’ & ‘Follow The Leader’

Prepare yourselves for a rant 12 years in the making as Mike Thomas takes to his soap box to preach about The Matrix Reloaded… as well as Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean and just about anything else foolish enough not to duck for cover.

As we learn this week, the history between Ben Linus and Charles Widmore is tumultuous and complex. We learn about their past, as well as witness Ben go on a journey to be judged by the Island for forgiveness now that he has returned in a performance so well done it earned Michael Emerson an Emmy.

We finally get our first flashback of our Freighter folks with Miles, learning about his connection to the Island, his gift of “communicating” with the Dead, and his own set of Daddy issues. We also discover there may be more to the other Ajira 316 passengers than we thought. Two great episodes this week as we get closer to the Season 5 finale!

It’s such a shame that it’s so difficult to find opinions about this film online. Luckily, Mike & Matt just so happen to have a podcast series dedicated to covering every film in the Spider-Man franchise! We hope you enjoy Matt blabbering on and on and on about comic book characters he likes and Mike feeling depressed about the current and future state of superhero movies!
