wait, what

*google*



I'm sure it's fine, but dear god isn't there anything out there that hasn't been remade?

well, aside from Halloween 3 that is.
With all these random remakes and reboots of like movie franchises from the 70s...people who were 20-30 years old in the 70s who actually care about those IPs are like...70-80 years old now.

This is the last time they can bank on those IPs and pray that a newer generation cares about them. No wonder they're getting so desperate to cash in on nostalgia before those IPs become worthless.

Old, I know but the podcast they did with Culkin was fantastic.
You would probably only get two episodes a year but a RLM podcast is something that I’ve wanted for a while. I’m not sure what the purpose of it would be though since they already have multiple videos that basically cover that kind of content.

21 producers. That's insane.
I think the big reason for that is that there are a lot of people tied up in Star Trek due to whatever is going on between CBS and Paramount, but 21 really is insane.

I hope we get an Orville season 2 re:View too.

Is Twilight Zone as bad as they made it out to be? I remember huge hype around the first 3 episodes then NO ONE talks about it anymore.

The new, mostly supbar season of Black Mirror is vastly superior to whatever the hell they were doing with those first three episodes of Twilight Zone.

This video was everything I wanted. And I kinda enjoyed Discovery.
Same, reminds me of the first time I watched the Plunkett review for Phantom Menace back in the day.

I enjoy then and I know they have problems, but seeing people like them dive slightly deeper into them and you see how it all falls apart.

I genuinely feel stupid for not registering some of the basic science stuff like that the red flashes wouldn't have been seen at the same time because of the speed of light.

They didn't even have time to talk about Burnham's mother or that Discovery ends up in the future at the end.
I think they were wrong about Section 31 framing Spock (I think they did it because Spock escaped and they needed a reason to get Star Fleet to help them find him), but even missing some stuff like that it hardly makes the show better.

yeah, i assumed a lot of those producer credits have more to do with the hot-potato way the show has been produced before it even started shooting than they represent the number of people actually working on the show at once. i feel like there have been like 4 showrunners for a total of two seasons lol, i'm sure there's been a bunch people who've come and gone alongside the other big name changes

The seeing signals thing, like the Light of Khaless in S1 was brought up in the OT.

Wasn't Spock actually framed by the AI, before the AI should have been active, I seem to remember something was wrong with that reveal.

They pretty much covered it all with "They want you to forget the previous episode by time you watch the next one" but I wish they had gone into the continuity issues more (I mean within the show itself, not continuity with rest of Trek).

For anyone asking about the BotW that Culkin mentioned on his podcast, they have it in the can and are saving it. They plan on releasing a few other BotW's before uploading the completed Culkin one.

I wish they'd talked a little about the camera work in Discovery too.

I started to ret so sick of all the pointless rotating or flipping camera tricks and the amount of Dutch Angles not seen since Battlefield Earth.

Thanks, that's good to know.

Has anyone else noticed that the RLM podcast on the Bunny Ears youtube channel is far and away the most popular upload on the channel?


106K views. Only a few others go over 1000. A bunch of other ones seem to just stay around a couple hundred.

I tried listening to a couple of others. The Tom Green one is pretty nice, they mention the RLM review of Freddy Got Fingered in passing. The Jake the Snake one is okay, but I have heard that story a few times thank to a couple of Pro-Wrestling podcasts I have listened to in the past.

The rest, aren't all that interesting to be honest.

The RLM one is great because they really bounce off each other and just goading Rich to tell stories of his time cleaning up his Grand mother's house were interesting and just shooting the shit on ghosts was a good conversation.
