The Horrorgasm! continues on this week’s episode. We’re talking about the newly-released film “No Escape,” (15:30) starring the one and only Keegan Allen as a vlogging lord who goes to Moscow just to do an escape room. We wish we could tell you that this movie was fantastic. We wish we could.
This week on the pod: one of us in a podcaster, and one of us is an imposter. Is that whiskey Marco Spark just drank? Or gasoline? That’s right, it’s 1982’s The Thing (7:52) directed by John Carpenter, and starring Kurt Russell with an incredible mane of hair. Horrorgasm intensifies!
This week on Headcanon, we’re taking a trip into the uncharted tunnel system below the United States, to get thoroughly creeped out by the Tethered in Jordan Peele’s Us (13:53). The horrifying voice, the way they move, the rabbits! It’s spooky season on the pod, so dive into this instant genre classic with us.
On this new season of Headcanon, the Buffy rewatch is over, but we’re still talking about Little Women (12:54). Meg, Jo, Amy, and Beth, to be precise. To the surprise of no one, Marco is stanning for Amy. And we all knew James is part of the JoHive. That Laurie’s a real 1860s fuckboi, eh?
At long last, we have reached the end of our Buffy the Vampire Slayer rewatch. We are no longer cookie dough, we are cookies and you can eat us. This week, we’re talking about the second half of Season 7 (08:23), specifically s07e16 “Storyteller,” s07e18 “Dirty Girls,” and s07e22 “Chosen.” Pour one out for the Scoobies we lost. RIP Amanda the Potential.
This week on the pod: the rewatch is winding down as we cover the first half of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, season 7 (24:03). We’re talking the superb s07e05 “Selfless,” the also excellent s07e07 “Conversations With Dead People,” and the dull as dishwater s07e10 “Bring on the Night.” Anya sings again! Willow’s outfit! Jonathan remembers his locker combination! We’re almost down counting down from 730.
It’s “Seeing Red” day on Headcanon! At long last, we’ve made it to the most controversial episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 6 (13:16). In part II of our Season 6 discussion, we also discuss s06e14 “Older and Far Away,” and s06e17 “Normal Again.” Happy stuff! Barrel of laughs! Warren sucks.
This week on the pod, JT and Marco are joined by Amanda of the Fire Bad, Tree Pretty podcast to discuss perhaps the most delightful episode of Buffy ever: s06e07 “Once More, With Feeling.” (13:47) We also gab about the next two episodes, “Tabula Rasa” and “Smashed,” as the Scooby Gang takes a turn for the dark and twisted misery of their early 20s.
This week on Headcanon, we close the book on season five of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (16:53). Buffy finds a body, fights off some truly lame Knights, and gives Dawn a Gift. Come for the misery, stay for the Ben slander.
Glory is upon us! This week on Headcanon, we’re talking the first half of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 5 (13:46). We’ll be covering s05e05 “No Place Like Home,” s05e07 “Fool For Love,” and s05e12 “Checkpoint” — along with assorted thoughts about some other episodes in the first half of the season. Spuffy is getting closer to a reality, Dawn’s not real, the Watcher’s Council are still a bunch of pricks, and Joyce isn’t feeling so well.
This week on the pod: creepy Gentleman, Faith body-switching hijinx, and the Exposition Song! It’s Season 4 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer! (10:40) We’re covering the whole season in one shot, discussing s04e10 “Hush,” s04e15 “This Year’s Girl,” s04e16 “Who Are You?” and s04e22 “Restless.” This is a fun episode of Headcanon (unless you happen to be a really big Riley Finn fan… uh sorry).
This week on Headcanon, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 3 (14:50) comes to an end with our third podcast covering so3e18 “Earshot,” s03e21 “Graduation Day, Part One,” and s03e22 “Graduation Day, Part Two.” Buffy is psychic. Buffy tries to murder Faith. Buffy lets Angel drink her. Buffy graduates! Two of these three episodes were delayed months because of a school shooting. America!
We’re right in the middle of an awesome groove with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 3 (13:25). This week on the pod we’re talking s03e10 “Amends,” s03e13 “The Zeppo,” and s03e14 “Bad Girls.” Faith takes her first steps down a dark path, Buffy guts us with her speech to Angel at Overlook Point. Xander isn’t totally horrible! Yay! Let’s get it on!
After a break to respect the Black Lives Matter protests and movement, we’re back to talk Buffy Season 3 (22:25). This week on the pod we’re covering s03e03 “Faith, Hope, and Trick,” s03e08 “Lover’s Walk,” and s03e09 “The Wish.” Buffy is getting over Angel, Willow is getting more witchy and bored now, Xander is showing his whole ass, and Faith and Anya make their glorious entrance to the show.
This week on the pod, you might not find a finer half-season of television. The guys are covering the back half of season 2 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Specifically, “Passion,” and “Becoming” parts 1 and 2. Xander remains problematic, Willow takes her first step into the dark arts, and Buffy really has a lot on her plate for a high school student. Also, there’s Whistler: why? Enjoy!
At long last, we’re finally tackling foundational text Buffy the Vampire Slayer (9:17). We’re settling into Season 2 this week, covering s02e07 “Lie to Me,” s02e13 “Surprise!” and s02e14 “Innocence.” You know, just some all-time classics. Buffy Summers remains an iconic legend, awkward Willow Rosenberg is perfection, and Xander Harris is… yeah. This aired 23 years ago! To podcast this show, you have to love it.
This week on the pod we’re indulging in some guilty pleasure Dad Cinema with 2012’s Jack Reacher (11:21). Diminutive Tom Cruise might not match the size of the titular hero from the book series, but his performance sure does! Or something. Please enjoy this breather of a podcast between April’s LOST deep-dive and our return to Buffy the Vampire Slayer next week.
Please join us, in this place that we all made together, as we close out our LOST rewatch with Season 6 (16:17). Jack gets an even bigger god complex, LaFleur is the hit new CBS procedural about LA Hot Cops working vice, Claire has a bird’s nest in her hair, and Richard finally gets a gray hair. Now we can finally move on.
Our LOST rewatch continues with every episode of Season 5 (13:30). Jack has a bomb! Sawyer provides an alternative model of leadership. Kate latches onto the nearest sleazy deadbeat she can find. Sayid gets literally Weekend at Bernie’s-ed for a few episodes, and poor Juliet can’t escape the writers. Remember, only fools are enslaved by time and space.
This week on the pod, we’re flashing forward to Season 4 of LOST (21:02). Jack is trying to fix everything by getting his people off the Island. Sayid is following close behind, cleaning up all of Jack’s mistakes. Kate revels in her love triangle chaos, new characters Miles, Faraday and Lapidus from the Freighter are awesome, and if anything should go wrong, Desmond Hume will be our constant.
We’re back for more LOST talk! This week we’re covering some selections from Season 3 of the show (11:42): s03e01 A Tale of Two Cities, s03e14 Exposé, s03e20 The Man Behind the Curtain, s03e21 Greatest Hits, and s03e22 Through the Looking Glass. The wonderful Juliet makes her entrance, Charlie doesn’t suck for once, and Jack is somehow losing his grip even more than before. We have to go back!
Okay, guys, we finally did it. By popular demand, we’re talking about the 2000s television series L O S T for the next month or so (27:10). This week, we try (and fail) to cover seasons 1-2 of the show by discussing s01e01 Pilot, s01e04 Walkabout, s01e17 …In Translation, and s02e23-24 Live Together, Die Alone. It was so nice to revisit all our old friends and also Charlie.
Because we hate ourselves, and there’s a pandemic on, we watched Cats (19:07). Don’t.
While we all shelter in place, the guys go remote to talk about a classic time travel romance post-apocalypse pandemic movie: 1995’s 12 Monkeys. But first, the guys discuss Devs, Picard, Westworld, and a little bit of Trouble (6:59) before diving into the Terry Gilliam joint (22:30). Don’t forget to wash your hands.
Settle in, folks, you’re not going anywhere for a while. To keep you entertained, James and Marco banter for a little about Devs, Nancy Drew and Star Trek: Picard (4:04), before moving on to the main course, the 1992 Michael Mann film The Last of the Mohicans (28:36). It’s got Daniel Day-Lewis in full living-off-the-land method acting mode, and a soundtrack that kicks ass. Stay alive! We will find you!
