It’s time for another episode of SFP-Now TV Reviews. This time Ian and I are joined by special guest, Jeff Burns. We discuss the newest episodes of The Last of Us, Star Trek: Picard, Quantum Leap, and more!
Welcome to our first episode of 2024 as we take a look back at some of the highlights of 2023.
2023 didn’t get off to the greatest of starts for Ian as he wound up in Hospital for about 10 days with a case of Double pneumonia and a Blood Clot on one of his lungs. So suffice it to say he had to rethink a few things, which included scifipulse.net and the podcast.
So after some thought and a chat with Marx Pyle. Ian decided to roll many of the TV reviews that used to feature on the website into a monthly podcast format. Which is how this show was born. And after some time of having him on as a guest we decided to bring our friend Jeff Burns in so as to hopefully give you all a good mixture of views, which saw us have some interesting discussions about various Star Trek episodes as Jeff’s view is often a little different to ours, which we all see as a good thing.
So we kick this show off with our review of the Doctor Who specials and the Christmas Day episode ‘The Church on Ruby Road’. Instead of reviewing each episode. We figured we’d just do an aggregate score for all the episodes.
After are time travel escapades with The Doctor. We take a look at the best of 2023. To do this we created three categories. Best New TV Show, Best Returning TV Show, and Best Movie. To make things interesting we each picked our best for each category as well as two honourable mentions a piece. I think you’ll be surprised by some of our choices. But maybe not all that surprised by some of our other choices.
Shows that get mentioned include The Ark, Superman & Lois, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, Star Trek: Picard and more. So tune in to find out who picked what.
I’m co-hosting another podcast! Every other week Ian and I review TV shows. More details on this episode below.
Welcome to SFP-NOW and our new TV reviews show that we’ll be looking to roll out every two weeks. For this series, Ian Cullen is joined by Marx Pyle of GenreTainment to discuss episodes of various genre television shows. We hope to bring in a third host to occasionally try and spice things up. But for now it will just be myself and Marx.
This First episode takes a look at episode three of The Last Of Us, which seemed to stir up mixed reviews from fans of the game versus those fans that have just tuned in for the series. Get our views on the Bob and Frank storyline.
Also, we have a look at the new Netflix Series Lockwood & Co, which is somewhat of a surprise package with its story of an alternate future in which ghosts are a very common occurrence, but can only be hunted down by teenagers.
Staying on the theme of supernatural series we also take a look at the new Paramount Plus series Wolf Pack, which is somewhat of a comeback for Buffy’s Sarah Michelle Geller who interestingly doesn’t have a huge role in the show’s pilot episode. But we’re pretty sure that her role will expand as the story grows.
Moving on from horror. We jump to some time travel for some fast and dirty comments on the new Quantum Leap series and the episode titled Leap. Die. Repeat. which kind of played out a little like Groundhog Day.
And Finally, Marx talks about his recent experience of being a panelist on a massive Buffy The Vampire Slayer Rewatch and talks a little about what he considers to be the best episodes of the show’s fourth season.
