Show #137: Twilight Q


Tales of mystery and imagination await in the bizarre hinterland between dreams and reality that is Twilight Q!

Originally conceived as an anthology showcase for young anime creatives, Twilight Q possesses all the experimental qualities of such a venture but also the hit-and-miss factor inherent to that style. The first section is a time travel mystery much in keeping with the OAVs namesakes that falls frustratingly short of clarity, while the second part delivers an otherworldly mood piece with depth, atmosphere and great philosophical weight. Does this mean we break even? Are we all just the fever dreams of some great fish in the sky? This podcast may have the answer!

Let’s Go! Episode 23 – Help! I’m A Fish!


Classicaloid takes a turn for the bizarre this time which is impressive for an already quite strange TV show. In other things creepy and kooky we examine the perils of movie stardom, sibling strife, ninjas, more ninjas, special moves and German-military-fantasies-that-are-totally-not-about-Nazis-you-guys!

Show #136: Watership Down (1978)


The first proper podcast of the year but there are already grim portents of things to come with the dark harbinger that is Watership Down!

Even a critical hardware error won't stop this train a-comin', yet some of us were surprised to find that this adaptation of Richard Adams' classic book didn't hit as hard as expected. Sure it has all the bunny brutalising and horror movie-style atmosphere of relentless dread its reputation would suggest, but nobody ever talks about how remarkably merciful it is also, a factor which should come up more in ever-present discussion of the film. Not to worry though, we find other avenues to bring up woodland creature slaughter so your children's dreams will remain terrifying all thanks to this podcast!

Find comfort in familiarity in this cold start to a brand new year!
