Fourcast! 50: Anecdotal Evidence

June 21st, 2010 by | Tags: , , ,

-Hey, remember when I jokingly suggested that we’d one day do an entire podcast composed of nothing but anecdotes?
-Ha ha, joke’s on you!
-For our 50th show, we decided to do a big fat show where we talk about things we like.
-It’s so that you get to know us better, or something. I swear I had a reason when I thought of doing this.
-This is a fun one, though, so listen to it.
-David: The Book of Eli, Inglourious Basterds
-Esther: Creature features & comedies
-David: Crime shows–no wait, TV on DVD.
The Shield, Homicide: Life on the Street, Dragon Ball Z
Puss-n-Boots, Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves
-Yes, I only know three fairy tales apparently. But Esther doesn’t know Dragon Ball Z!
Journey to the West
-Esther: TV shows–comedies, getting suckered into watching Oz/good dramas, making up memories
-David: Libraries and Fred Saberhagen
-Esther: Libraries and orphans
-The series I couldn’t think of was Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern. Thanks to snackmar for pointing it out from my vague, one-word description!
-6th Sense’s 4a.m. Instrumental for the theme music.
-See you, space cowboy!

  1. LIKED: Book of Eli :frown:
    DIDN’T LIKE: Inglorious Basterds :raise:

    I think there is something broken inside you Mr. Brothers. Something broken deep in your heart…

  2. Hmm… the podcast cuts off right after you mention fairy tales. Is anyone else having that problem?

  3. @Simon: I just downloaded it here at work and it plays through til the end. May be worth a redownload?

  4. I absolutely cannot recommend you buy Homicide: Life on the Streets enough. From what I gather we have a similar taste in TV shows and you won’t regret it. Fantastic ensemble cast + good writing = awesome TV. I picked it up when it first went on sale on Amazon and burned through all 7 seasons in like 3 weeks.

  5. You know, I’ve never actually watched Dragon Ball Z, outside of one of the movies, but I’ve heard a lot about it online(I have read the first five volumes or so of the Manga, at the point where it was still DragonBall). One of the things that always bemused me about it was that so many people who spoke about it seemed to have this furious love-hate relationship with the series.
    It’s a bit odd, often if you’re reading about a show or comic that you don’t know it’s hard to follow, but I think I could understand most of the discussions and find them entertaining.

    Wasn’t there some old live action TV series based on the same “Journey to the West Fairy” that was at least moderately famous in the US. Monkey Magic or something?
