8-8: The Walking Dead “How It’s Gotta Be”

No episode synopsis today just an honest thank you to all of the listeners who’ve joined us on our post-apocalyptic tour of ‘The Walking Dead’! It’s been a lot of fun for both Matthew and I, and although it wasn’t an easy decision to say goodbye to this podcast, we are confident it will lead to better things for us and LSG Media. So thank you for putting up with our nonsense over the years, and thank you for liking us enough to check out our other shows. Plenty of our long-time listeners (to other shows) found LSG Media through our TWD coverage and for that we will forever be grateful. As we’ve mentioned more than once we will be maintaining our Facebook group that is dedicated to the show. Jump on in and hang out with the coolest listeners on the planet. Farewell!

#228: The Departed

Dean, Josh, and Matthew tackle The Departed, but they mixed it up a little this week. First, they don’t go scene-by-scene, but rather they get into the characters, the performances, and the plot. There are comparisons to Goodfellas, discussions on the cinematography, and lots of questions asked by Dean as it relates to: the plausibility of Costello’s men murdering Queenan, the level of suspicion for both Sullivan and Costigan in their respective “undercover” roles, and of course Costigan’s decision to flee the police station once he spots the “citizens” envelope. The latter sparks a heated debate between Josh and Dean. Another blast of an episode that you DON’T want to miss!

Star Trek; The Animated Series

The Discovery hiatus left me with a Trek shaped void to fill. So I’m boldly going where I’ve never been before; The Animated Series. Read More

Touring the Christmas Story House

A Christmas Story

Tis the season for watching holiday movies. It’s practically a tradition, right up there with wrapping presents, trimming trees, and slurping down copious amounts of eggnog – spiked or otherwise. Wherever your tastes reside – be it Die Hard or Bing Crosby – we can all look forward to revisiting some of our favorite holiday-themed films each year.

I’d like to take this opportunity to talk about one of my favorites. A film that, as it turns out, I happen to have a regional connection to. Read More

Battlestar Galactica “Miniseries Part 1”

Matthew and Dean finally deliver on their long anticipated coverage of Battlestar Galactica Reimagined. Matthew hasn’t seen any episode of BSG and Dean has seen every episode of BSG. This is the first time the lads have covered a show with this particular wrinkle, and it makes for some interesting conversation. LSG Media is proud to present “Recommissioned: A Battlestar Galactica Podcast”. We will be covering all four seasons with brief breaks between seasons. Expect new episodes to drop every other Thursday and occasionally every Thursday.

8-7: The Walking Dead “Time For After”

Matthew and Dean reminisce about the first time that Matthew reached out to Dean to be a guest on his solo TWD podcast, which at the time, wasn’t an exclusive TWD podcast. Dean even digs up an old voicemail from Matthew to play for nostalgia. As for the episode, the lads get into Eugene, and they both agree that he was great. They heap plenty of praise onto Negan, Eugene, and Dwight. The also get into the leadership qualities of both Rick and Negan and how they affect the people that surround them. Does Rick have NO control over the key players in his group? Is Rick the leader or just someone that people tolerate? All descriptors that could have been used to describe Negan once upon a time, and ironically, his people seem to respect (or at least fear) Negan to the point of falling in line without going off on rogue missions. Don’t miss the episode before our last!

2-9: Stranger Things “Chapter Nine: The Gate”

Matthew and Josh join Jessica and Dean for a special four-way discussion about season two’s finale. Matthew reads a passage out of “Heart of Thunder” (Ms. Wheeler’s romance novel), Josh and Dean debate the use of Billy, and Jessica ensures we miss no details as we plow forward. Thanks again to everyone who joined us for another excellent season of Stranger Things. We’ll see you for season three!

#227: The Thing From Another World

This week the lads go back to 1951 complete with static camera shots, Trans-Atlantic accents, lots of cigarette smoking, and good ole’ fashioned horror. This is the movie that inspired John Carpenter, but does it stand the test of time? Is this a flick that someone will like if they watch it for the first time in 2017? You’re in luck – Dean hasn’t seen this movie before covering it for the podcast. Matthew grew up with the flick, but has his opinion changed over time? Step in out of the cold and join us in the Officer’s Club, and you will have all of the answers you’re looking for!

2-8: Stranger Things “Chapter Eight: The Mind Flayer”

Dean and Jessica have kicked Matthew back to Portland and they are finally back to work on The Hawkins Report. Jessica and Dean were both relieved to see that Stranger Things is back to form with “The Mind Flayer”, and Dean totally forgets that “The Lost Sister” happened because he opens his commentary by saying, “We pick right up where we left off…” Um, no we didn’t Dean – there was a whole episode in between. For obvious reasons Bob shines in this episode, but Jessica makes a great point by highlighting that it is hard to care about characters that are introduced in the second season. Additionally, Bob is “the other guy” and despite this we still come to love as much as “the guy” in Hopper. Another stand-out and emotional episode. Thanks to everyone who turned up in the live chat. We will see you for the finale soon!
