Despite some audio issues and a format that rapidly got away from them, Ben & Matt were just about able to discuss one of the best reviewed movies under the Marvel banner, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and even managed to weigh in on the ‘Who is the best Chris?’ debate for good measure.

Four survivors get their first flashback treatment this week! Not all is what it seems when Boone goes to “save” Shannon from an abusive boyfriend in the Outback, nor is all what it seems when he rescues her from a boar attack in the jungle.

Ranking the 2018 Academy Award Best Picture Nominees

Mike Thomas and Jerome Cusson debated the 2017 Academy Award Best Picture Nominees in the form of a podcast. Deciding this year it was best to spare Matt Waters the extra hosting duties give his many Reel World responsibilities (wordplay!), we decided that this year we would discuss the nominees on (figurative) paper instead. After devising a secret formula to rank the nine nominees, we have come up with a definitive order for the Oscar films, ranked worst to best. Without further ado…

From Broadcast Depth Episode 6: ‘All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues’ & ‘Whatever The Case May Be’

Jack becomes the first character to receive a second flashback as we explore how he and his father clashed professionally and the issues it caused between them.

Boone and Locke also make a major discovery in the jungle. Unfortunately, for those who waited an entire month to find out what that was on the next episode, they would be let down with the worst episode of the first season and no further explanation as to what that discovery was. At least the music at the end is good? We’re halfway done with Season One! Continue reading From Broadcast Depth Episode 6: ‘All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues’ & ‘Whatever The Case May Be’
