    Bonus Episode: All Things Jaws

    Bonus Episode: All Things Jaws

    Yes, it's only the third episode of the BossCast and we're already breaking from the regular format for our first special edition! In these specials, we'll be taking a deep dive into one particular subject; first up it's Jaws! Noted FinalBoss shark experts James and Shaun are on board to voyage through the history and legacy of Steven Spielberg's 1975 blockbuster, which opened 45 years ago this month. What a coincidence.



    The episode is divided into five very unequal segments, and please note the podcast contains major SPOILERS relating to all





    * The movie 0:25

    * The novel 24:58

    * The sequels 31:36

    * Other shark movies 41:32

    * Trivia 49:20





    The Movie



    James and Shaun chat about why they love the movie, their favourite characters and scenes, what it did for the reputation of sharks and ponder what a 2020 version would be like.



    The Novel



    Shaun (read the book) runs through some of the major differences between the book and the film and gets James' (has not read the book) reaction to how different some storylines in the movie could have been. They also take a moment to look at the impact on the author Peter Benchley, who's attitude towards sharks changed upon the film's release.



    The Sequels



    Into the murky waters of the sequels we go. Shaun (seen them) runs through the major plot points and tries to answer James' awkward questions. How is Vaughan still mayor? Why would the Brody kids be anywhere near water again?



    Other Shark Movies



    Since the success of Jaws, there have been many imitations. Guess what? Shaun has seen several, James less. They talk Open Water, The Shallows and laugh at the increasingly ridiculous nature of the genre, Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus anyone?



    Trivia



    James in his element now, reeling off fact-after-fact about the movie and it's making. My favourite: why is the boat name Orca?

    The Last of Us 2 Speculation, Snyder Cut and News!

    The Last of Us 2 Speculation, Snyder Cut and News!

    The FinalBoss team are back with our second episode in the revamped podcast format. The BossCast returns with chatter about games, movies, TV and more. This week, we’re joined by another member of the FinalBoss team, Roy! A gaming aficionado and fan of the Playstation lifestyle, Roy’s joined us this week to discuss our feature topic: The Last of Us 2 - expect to hear more from him in future episodes, too!



    As always, the BossCast is broken down into three sections. 



    In this episode, FinalBoss talk:





    * Our top news picks of the week! 0:11

    * The Last of Us Part 2 and what we want to see 8:36

    * What Sucks this Week: The Zack Snyder Cut 32:48





    The BossCast News:



    The team take it in turns to cover some of the biggest news points of the week. This week we’re covering a variety of topics including: 





    Space Force: Steve Carrell stars in a new political-satire comedy that pokes fun at the Trump administration without ever mentioning the big man himself. 

    Iron Man VR: A VR version of the Iron Man experience is heading to our homes. We discuss what it’ll be like to live like the Marvel legend. 

    Harley Quinn TV Series: The Harley Quinn TV series recently launched on E4 in the UK. Should you watch it? 

    PlayStation 5 News: As we barrel towards the release of the Playstation 5, FinalBoss talks about some of the latest details. 





    The BossCast Feature: The Last of Us Part 2 



    Following a series of delays and leaks, The Last of Us Part 2 is finally set to land on PlayStation as an exclusive title on June 19th. As fans of the previous incarnation, the FinalBoss team is chatting about this upcoming title, looking at everything from technical information and gameplay to what we want to see from this narrative-driven game. 



    What Sucks this Week: The Zack Snyder Cut



    After a huge fan campaign, Zack Snyder has been given the green light to produce his own version of the Justice League movie. After leaving the project before its official release, it has long been argued that Snyder’s original vision for the film never saw the light of day; much to the annoyance of fans. Promising a more enthralling version of the movie that disappointed so many, in 2021, this ‘Snyder Cut’ of the Justice League will be available on HBO Max. 



    In the final segment of the BossCast, the team discuss expectations for the movie, why it’s a shame we ever needed it in the first place, and what our hopes are for its impact on the industry as a whole. We also cover the ‘Ayer Cut’ of Suicide Squad, a movement born from the Snyder Cut revolt. 



    If you enjoy the BossCast, be sure to go back and listen to our first episode. In our first BossCast, we chat about The Mandalorian season 2 and what the delay of Tenet could mean for cinema releases in 2020.

A very insightful and interesting podcast!

I found this podcast very interesting as they dive deep into the mandalorian, cute baby yoda and firefly (which was also an amazing program). The guys also went into the cinemas possible reopenings and things we might expect to see or not see over the next few months. Overall a great listen!
