Episode 92: Dystopias, Utopias and Post-Apocalytpic Sh*t, Part 2

Andi and Lise just can’t get enough of this theme, and they had another discussion about how these themes play out in various elements of popular culture, how the visual elements produce certain feelings, and the role of the environment and corporations run amuck. Some of the movies and TV shows that came up were Anna and the ApocalypseBladerunner 1982 and 2049Shaun of the DeadFireflyStar Wars series, TerminatorDivergent, Hunger GamesDemolition ManZombieland one and twoFury Road, The Stand (1994 and forthcoming updater), and Resident Evil

Shout-outs! 

Lise has been playing Civilization 6 on the Xbox, and she’s finding it kind of relaxing in these times while Andi finally began watching teen noir series Veronica Mars (who’s a high school detective!) and she’s already binged two seasons. 

Episode 85: Why We Love Antiheroes

Andi and Lise love antiheroes and all of their messy, complicated humanity. In this episode, they discuss some of their fave antiheroes and the flaws that make them relatable: Malcolm Reynolds (Firefly); Han Solo (Star Wars); Helena (Orphan Black); Parker (Leverage); Handsome Jack (Borderlands) Max and Furiosa (Fury Road); Sarah Connor (Terminator and T2); Andy (The Old Guard); Annalise Keating (How to Get Away with Murder).

Andi and Lise discussed the movie The Old Guard in episode 82; the movie T2 in episode 84; Terminator in episode 73; and Fury Road in episode 50.

Lise’s shout-out: times are tough; but she’s finding some solace in cosplay art and finishing edits on her latest book.

Andi’s shout-out is an in memoriam to stellar actor Chadwick Boseman, who died August 28 at the age of 43 after a 4-year battle with colon cancer. He was amazing and oh, he’s missed. Wakanda Forever.
