The 2017 Oscars are officially in the past, so what did we think of this year’s Main Event? How about that Best Picture snafu? Could the ceremony be improved, maybe even overhauled?

We discuss all of the above, the winners of the 2017 Academy Awards, and even who we thought deserved the golden guy.

Fear not, there is more than just Oscars on this week’s episode. We also discuss what you should be most excited for in terms of March’s new releases, plus reviews of Get Out, Logan and The Handmaiden.

Remember the first time you sat down to watch a television show, maybe it was a recommendation or just random chance, and then six hours later you were still fixated on that TV set, refusing to turn it off? What a great feeling that is, to know that you’ve spent countless hours of your life just staring at the TV like it was an achievement of some kind.

This week, we’re discussing binge worthy TV shows. Those favorites of ours and our listeners that entertained us so much we forgot bathroom breaks and family gatherings just to finish a show out. This has been a requested topic for some time, so let’s get into it!

Television has killed more beloved characters than most world wars, yet we continue to watch and admire the sheer brutality. But not every character death is a punch to the gut. Occasionally, it becomes a moment of celebration and joy.

This week, we’re discussing TV character deaths we cheered for. Those beloved characters that either deserved every second of pain they received, or they just annoyed us so much we had to see them go. It’s time to celebrate death!

Also, stay after our regular episode as we have a spoiler-filled discussion on John Wick: Chapter Two.

Directed by Thomas Zellen, Beyond The Edge stars Sean Maher as Dr. Abe Anderson, a scientist recruited for a long mission into space with Casper Van Dien accompanying him as Lt. Colonel Harold Richards. Their mission is simple, take a ship propelled by theoretical physics to the far edge of the universe…and see what’s out there.

As Abe and Richards each deal with depression and isolation during their decade-plus mission, when they finally reach the edge, their perceptions and realities of the universe are challenged.

Many of you know Sean Maher as Simon Tam from Firefly and Serenity, Sean has had an extensive career in Hollywood. He left New York for L.A. when he landed the lead role in the Fox series, Ryan Caulfield: Year One. That lead to many parts in shows like Party of Five, The Playboy Club and many more. Lately, he’s also been voicing the character of Nightwing in several DC animated films.

For this interview, Sean stopped by to discuss his career and specifically this latest film, Beyond the Edge (formally known as ISRA 88), which arrives on video on demand from Screen Media Films on February 7th. The film is a very existential look at these two characters, but primarily Maher’s Abe Anderson, and leaves you with a quite a bit to debate as you reach the conclusion.

Take a listen to our exclusive interview with Sean Maher.

We all talk about it every time we head to the theater. Each time a villain comes up against our hero and they have nowhere to turn, we turn to our friends with us and yell exactly what we think our leading man or woman should do.

Well, this week, we’re going to save some lives. Together, we have put together a list of some of the most iconic movie villains (including Darth Vader, Jason, Predator and more), and each of us has crafted our own specific way to defeat these horrendous baddies. Who is the most effective host when dealing with the worst of the worst? Lend us your ears and decide for yourself!

What happens when a movie seemingly has everything? A perfect story, director, cast – everything lines up just right. Then it releases, and it’s a flaming dumpster fire. How could something so right go so horribly wrong?

This week, we discuss our perfect movies gone wrong. Those films that just failed after so much promise, as well as listener picks for movies they think failed them.

We also cover several recent releases including Patriots Day, The Crash, Get the Girl, and A Series of Unfortunate Events.
