Your Moment of Who: Series 8, Episodes 1-3 (Deep Breath / Into the Dalek / Robot of Sherwood)


Doctor Who has returned! We're already a quarter of the way through Series 8, and KC and Sue talked for nearly two hours about the first three episodes featuring the new Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi. Don't worry, though - it has been edited down to a much more manageable 52 minutes (or so).  Please remember that we both only saw each episode once and that these episodes are "first reactions" to the episode.  Don't expect too much analysis.  There will be some, however, because we just can't stop ourselves.

****THIS EPISODE CONTAINS SPOILERS****

To help you avoid said spoilers and still listen, if you want, here are some time codes:
01:15 - Thoughts on the new title sequence
03:30 - Capaldi first impressions
06:30 - Deep Breath (KC and I disagree about something!)
19:10 - Into the Dalek
28:35 - Robot of Sherwood
33:00 - General thoughts so far (including some general Moffat crit around the 38 minute mark and also some things we forgot earlier.)
40:45 - An email from listener Marcus and our response
And stay tuned to the very end for over 2 minutes of ridiculous outtakes.

Anomaly of Outlander


Visit the show notes for links, trailers and more>>

Hi, I'm Jen and this is Anomaly's first podcast episode about Outlander. I recently sat down with my sister and my mom to discuss the time traveling series written by Diana Gabaldon. We also talked about the first two episodes of the new television show that Gabaldon and Ronald D. Moore created, based on her novels. Alas, I don't have the Starz Channel, but my mom graciously offered to record them for me—it's good to have connections. A couple of weeks ago, I had a free weekend, so I  traveled seventy-five miles to watch them with her and my younger sister. It was our "girls' night". We shared a couple of  bottles of wine and some laughs as we talked late into the evening about why we enjoyed the series. It's a very good excuse to get together more often and I think we're going to make it a habit.

Your Moment of Who: Doctor Who TV Movie (Eighth Doctor)


For full show notes and links to all of our social media, please visit anomalypodcast.com

Welcome to our final installment of this year's Classic Who series! KC and I discuss the 1996 TV Movie simply titled "Doctor Who" and starring Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor.

We talk about why American content creators should not be trusted with a 30+ year old BBC property, the overuse of racial stereotypes and gang/gun violence, the Seventh Doctor's traumatic end, and the somewhat odd characteristics of the Eighth Doctor (like kissing random women, which stuck around, and telling people bits from their future, which didn't). We also discuss the Doctor's apparently questionable genetic makeup, and again ask the age-old question: Why does the Master have superpowers?

Anomaly Supplemental: Jurassic Park


For full show notes and links to our social media, visit anomalypodcast.com

This month, while KC is busy a moving couple hundred miles, I was joined by Anomaly Correspondent and Staff Writer Sarah to talk about Jurassic Park.  From the very beginning, we had some particularly difficult issues with Skype, and even after correcting the audio as much as possible, Sarah still sounds a bit like she's in a fishbowl.  Apologies.

Along with favorite quotes/characters/scenes and John Williams's majestic score, we share stories of our first experiences with this movie, production trivia, comments from the Facebook group, and talk a little about the somewhat weighty themes of exploiting scientific advancement for monetary profit and attempted to control nature.

Anomaly: Guardians of The Galaxy Review


"I am Groot!"  In this edition of Anomaly, Angela and I review Guardians of The Galaxy. In short, the casting was great! The dialogue was clever, the comedy was non-stop awesome! And, as Gen Xers who both lived by the "awesome mix tape", as teenagers and young women, we both LOVED the soundtrack. It's definitely one to buy. We highly recommend you see this movie... now!
