Lizzy and Nate and the occasional guest dissect novels, novellas, short stories, plays, leaflets, cereal boxes -- anything that was later turned into a movie. They pillory plot differences, castigate casting choices, and revel in all that is right.

    HE030 The Princess Bride

    HE030 The Princess Bride

    At a break in the Sasquatch board gaming festival, Hate Expectations took advantage of their inconceivable friend, Dug Steen, being in town to record an episode on William Goldman's novel The Princess Bride (1973) and the highly quotable classic movie Rob Reiner made from it (1987). The three grab a vine and dive head first into the beloved story and its familiar characters, breathing new life into it like some inconceivable bellows shoved in its pie-hole. Come, and love it as we have loved it.

    HE029 The Orchid Thief / Adaptation.

    In a very special episode of Hate Expectations, Lizzy learns the hard way that rock music is Satan's gateway to your heart, while Nate find's the school bully's unwanted attention is just a cry for help. No, wait. It isn't that kind of a special episode. It's a birthday episode! We finally get to the mic with our long awaited episode about Susan Orlean's The Orchid Thief (1998) and its movie adaptation, the movie Adaptation. (2002, dir Spike Jonze).

    HE028 The Odyssey / O Brother, Where Art Thou

    HE028 The Odyssey / O Brother, Where Art Thou

    Rich and Z return to the podcast, bringing a curious Homer pick with them. Joel and Ethan Coen's O Brother, Where Art Thou (2000) gives a "based on" credit to The Odyssey which qualifies it for discussion. Not to spoil the journey, but it turns out you have to squint mighty hard most times to see the connections between the two stories. And squint we do, mostly from laughing. We also discover that reading ancient literature actually is more fun than a burning stick in a Cyclops's eye. Who knew?

    HE027 Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH

    HE027 Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH

    As avowed rat lovers, it was inevitable that Lizzy and Nate would eventually discuss the beloved Newbery Medal winner, Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH (Robert C. O'Brien, 1971), and its Don Bluth animated adaptation, The Secret of NIMH (1982). In a surprise twist of fate, it turned out that frequent guest host, Siobhan Beeman, was the one to bring this classic out and turn the Hate Expectations eye on it. And stare deeply into it, we did.

    HE026 The Shining

    HE026 The Shining

    Three people, intentionally sequestered in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. Lizzy, Nate, and special returning guest Jane Hutchins, gave in to a driving compulsion to come together to hammer out the differences between Stephen King's novel, The Shining, and the Stanley Kubrick movie of the same name. Luckily, their discussion was captured by sensitive audio detection equipment. We can now present the entire session here for your morbid delight. With that...heeeeeere's Hate Expectations!

    HE025 Dinotopia

    HE025 Dinotopia

    Lizzy invokes one of her birthday wishes this year to whisk the Hate Expectations team off to a hidden corner of the south pacific, where a magical island of humans and dinosaurs live and work together in near perfect harmony. Yes, we dust off James Gurney's coffee table classic, Dinotopia (1992), and then unearth a dvd copy of the Hallmark mini-series from a decade later. Ping pong, Talking Heads, and a blooper reel; this episode has it all.
