NoahIn yet another cut from our discussion of lost film genres, we wonder at the current small comeback the religious epic is enjoying. Yes, a short chat about Noah, just in time for Easter. (Also Exodus and Gods of Egypt.)

GLEE!While discussing the failure of the musical genre to keep dominating Hollywood, Nick and Alastair slide into a tangential discussion of Glee, the “jukebox musical” and some other briefly-successful 2000s TV shows. But hey, at least they know they’re off-topic.

Tom Hiddleston in High RiseA small bit cut from our review of Tom Hiddleston and Ben Wheatley’s High Rise film, in which Nick and Alastair discuss the plot in a shade more detail. Still not extreme spoilers but some mention of specific elements and moments.

high-riseIt’s time for a no-superheroes episode! Eschewing all cultural trends, Nick and Alastair take a look at social satire movie High Rise at the 1:32 point (plus the difficulty of adapting books and vertical living returning to London), new podcast Alice Isn’t Dead at 18:29 (plus methods of audio advertising and whether this very show has a secret purpose) and the latest Coen brothers comedy Hail, Ceasar! at 33:04 (plus the life and death of old movie genres).

Lastly, in our stubbornly unnamed recommendations feature at 46:27, Alastair reads his first comic in years: The Manhattan Projects by Jonathan Hickman & Nick Pitarra. Is this the beginning of a deep love for graphic storytelling as a medium? Or is it… The End?

better-call-saulIn a not-that-difficult second episode, Nick and Alastair look at the return of Better Call Saul at the 1:20 mark (plus Gotham’s prequel problems and the terrible omen of Bryan Cranston), the upcoming DC Comics Rebirth at 16:12 (plus how superhero comics are morphing into Doctor Who and the recent Iron Fist casting controversy) and the possibility of more adult-rated superhero movies after the success of Deadpool at 32:44 (plus eternal hope for sexy Gambit and Wolverine’s stabby vendetta against walls and robots).

Returning for a second week at 45:50, it’s our still-nameless recommendations feature! Nick reports back on quietly squelchy crime series Messiah II, then recommends Alastair his first comic book in years. What will it be?
