Ben Phillips & Matt Waters are sick to death of Oscar contenders so have decided to get their spy on instead, examining how the Mission: Impossible, Bourne and James Bond franchises have danced around each other over the years.
Where’s the Rabbit’s Foot? Continue reading Secret Agent Men – Episode 5: Mission: Impossible III
Christmas Specials aren’t the only annual Reel World tradition; we also cover Star Wars movies, and boy howdy do we have one to discuss here…
We re-litigate The Last Jedi, discuss where we were at after The Force Awakens, speculate on the future of the franchise and weigh in on some things that we actually liked about this movie we mostly hated. Enjoy! Continue reading Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker Podcast Review
While LOST fans had to wait an agonizing eight months between the 3rd and 4th season, the show didn’t go completely radio silent. Thirteen 2-3 minute Mobisodes (what the heck are Mobisodes?) were delviered to fill in some missing pieces to parts of Seasons 1 through 3 to whet the fans appetite. Kevin and Ben discuss all thirteen, whether they were effective, and which are the ones worth seeking out.
Additionally, Ubisoft produced a LOST video game that came out early in Season 4. Kevin played through the entirety of the game for the first time, giving his thoughts on the experience and whether it is a worthy companion piece to the show, while Ben provides his input having played the game when it was initially released.
With the show being half way completed (in terms of Seasons, anyway) the duo felt it was a good time to talk about the state of the show at its midway point, discussing how far it had come since Season 1, copycats, etc., all while answering questions from YOU the listeners!

In ‘What Kate Did’ we discover what…Kate…did…to become a fugitive. We also get a glimpse at Mr. Eko’s life in Nigeria and how starkly different he is from the fellow we’ve come to know on the Island. Mr. Eko also helps Locke fill in the gaps on the DHARMA Initiative film reel, Michael potentially makes progress on finding his son, revelations of the Beechcraft, what moment caused some fans to jump ship, and we discuss some character issues that plague this second season. Continue reading From Broadcast Depth Episode 17: ‘What Kate Did’ & ‘The 23rd Psalm’
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’
