J and Larry tackle the ouroboros of Fictional Fiction. You know, that work of fiction inside another work of fiction... How does it affect the story, how does it affect the understanding of the story? They totally talk about Saga and Watchmen, and they totally forget to talk about the Pirate comic in Watchmen. Thanks again to Heidi Handelsman!
J and Larry tackle sex in this episode. It wasn't such an icky conversation (maybe we weren't doing it right.) How does Star Trek handle sex? Is there sex in Star Wars? And then, of course, Game of Thrones. It all goes well until some technical issues... but then Heidi makes it all better.
Part Two of our special look at fashion in science fiction, comics and fantasy. This time, women's fashion. J and Larry have a special guest: Wren, a make up artist. She's there to make sure they don't make idiots of themselves. Thanks again to Heidi Handelsman!
After a week away because of... well, we'll let J explain, Deep Cut Nerd is back with the question: Just who is the best dressed in speculative fiction? A two part exploration, first up: the men.
Special thanks to Heidi Handelsman for making us sound awesome.
J and Larry try to fight the law, but, the law is gonna win. How do different speculative fictions take on the legal system? Are there lawyers in the DC universe? What's up with Vulcan's killing each other every 7 years and THAT'S ok with the Federation?
We ain't talkin no Scotty, no Kaylee, no Miles O'Brien, we are talking the brains behind the operation, the Engineers who built the Enterprise or the Wall in Song of Ice and Fire. Stuff like that... Larry causes some problems when he claims it was Bob the Builder that built the Wall of Ice...
