James Cameron’s turn-of-the-century sci fi action show about the murky future of Seattle in 2019 captures the hearts of these podcasters in the murky now of Seattle in 2018. Should we start a band called The Murky Now? The answers to many other questions are in this week’s episode!
Saddle up for supernatural old west shenanigans with Wynonna Earp! Ancient curses, demon bikers, and weirdly pretty rodeo champs turn out to be just our cup of whiskey-laced tea! Strangely discovers a Greek god and Sarah admits that she’s trash as they dig into this recent production from Canada’s TV mines.
Your hosts discuss how they both got a very similar “meh” from two very different shows: dreary modern crime drama “The Killing” and over-the-top 80s cop comedy “Sledge Hammer!”
The stakes are high and the costumes are comical in the CW’s 2013 attempt to make a sexy show about child marriages in the…I wanna say late middle ages? Don’t @ us, just listen and laugh with us as we try to find the silver lining of Reign.
Oh Canada, our home of GAY-AS-HELL FAERIE BULLSHIT! Your hosts are almost uniformly delighted by this rare television foray into urban fantasy from America’s hat. Listen as they attempt not to lose their cool and fail, leading Strangely to fangirl hard, and Sarah to develop her first OT3.
Time to visit the origin story of everybody’s favorite precocious-child-turned-even-more-precocious-adult, Neil Patrick Harris! Your hosts discuss instrumental earworms, borrowing cars, and realistic zombies after watching this heartwarming late-80s dramedy.
It’s a dryly madcap ’90s adventure full of anthropomorphized animals, sibling rivalry, and magical floating apartments. Order yourself a Cafe Latte Supremo, it’s time for Frasier!
Grab a Hawaiian shirt just like Uncle Bruce, because we’re heading to Miami! Our hosts are delighted by whimsical spy nonsense, though Strangely can’t quite seem to keep his Bruces straight. Get ready for fake pipe bombs and bikini-clad shenanigans, it’s time for Burn Notice!
It’s the very first LIVE Pilot House! Sarah and Strangely take their hijinks to Clockwork Alchemy and discuss the pilot of “The Wild, Wild West”: brace yourself for 1965’s idea of 1865, with all the awkward haircuts and racial stereotypes that entails. All aboard The Wanderer, we’re headed to the (not at all wicky-wicky) Wild Wild West!
Our next proper episode, where we discuss “The Wild, Wild West” (in front of a live audience!), will be up next Monday. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this special preview of Strangely’s other podcast, a chapter-a-week audiobook called Pochemancier. It’s like our very own backdoor pilot!
