SFP-NOW Interviews Writers & Editors about Fairy Tales Folklore and Fables Reimagined SciFiPulse Radio

In this episode, Ian & Marx give their initial thoughts on the new CW series Gotham, which is a show set in a universe where Batman has been killed. Our initial thoughts are that the show is kind of meh and has room for improvement. So tune in to hear exactly what we have to say.

Moving on. We also give our first thoughts on School Spirits and focus on the show’s pilot episode ‘My So-Called Death’, which introduces us to the tone and characters of the series. In this discussion, Marx compares this show to ‘Dead Like Me’ only with less sarcasm.

Staying on the theme of supernatural series. We also discuss Wolf Pack and zoom in on the penultimate episode titled ‘Lion’s Breath’ which has a few big plot reveals when it comes to Ramsay and her true nature. We also discuss how gorgeous the show’s cinematography is when it comes to one shot in particular.

Moving into the realm of science fiction and fantasy. We discuss the new season of The Mandalorian and recap events from ‘The Mines of Mandalore’ and ‘The Convert’. We also briefly discuss a few shows from Star Wars past as well as touch on the infamous Holiday Special via a discussion about a new documentary film about that. So set your lightsabers to maim as many Ewoks were sacrificed to make this episode.

We close out this month’s show with a recap of Star Trek: Picard’s fifth episode ‘Imposters’, which not only saw the return of Ro Laren from TNG. But also used her character as a means to link the A and B plots together as more is revealed about The Changeling Plot to undermine Starfleet and The Federation. We also speculate somewhat as to where this could go and discuss how Paramount Plus could use this season of Picard as a Springboard for other series that could reintroduce characters from TNG, DS9 & Voyager as well as continue the adventures of some of the new characters such as Captain Shaw and Ensign Sydney LaForge.

So please tune in for another packed reviews episode and feel free to comment about any of the shows we cover or even suggest shows and movies you’d like us to discuss.
