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.
