    Canceled Too Soon #191 | Samurai (1979)

    Canceled Too Soon #191 | Samurai (1979)

    In the late 1970s, when TV shows like WONDER WOMAN and THE INCREDIBLE HULK ruled the airwaves, there were a lot of failed TV series that tried to jump on the vigilante money train. Enter SAMURAI, a failed television pilot about a district attorney who also moonlights as a samurai-themed crimefighter!
    It's weird, it's ill-conceived, and they could never get away with it today. But could it be that SAMURAI was... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold travel back to the era of the "Shag Carpet Superhero," when vigilante shows were basically like every other tv series but with one half-assed superhero scene in them at the end!

    Star Wars: Episode Zero - The Dirty Dozen!

    Star Wars: Episode Zero - The Dirty Dozen!

    Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are working backwards through film history, using STAR WARS as the starting point!
    This week on EPISODE ZERO they enlist Robert Aldrich's rowdy and violent World War II "men on a mission" classic THE DIRTY DOZEN, a film that helped inspire ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY's updated perspective on intergalactic conflicts, and its comparatively brutal approach to heroic sacrifice!

Ari.Papermaster ,

Movies that start with the letter A

Absolutely loved this episode, as I do every episode.

I rly need to watch All The Presidents Men

One thing I disagreed with is Arrival being Denis’ best Film.

Blade Runner 2049 (Which I find to be MUCH better than the original film) is definitely the best one.

Agree with Aliens. It’s so Good.

Majestic moose ,

Some of the best critics around.

Sure one of them is lovably pompous. Sure they are Californian in the way they think that the rest of the country/world is as enlightened as their local bubbles (hint: probably wouldn’t be terrible if it was). Sure they are children of the 90’s, tragically unhip now in some ways and they had a very different high school experience than many of us.

These guys are some of the best critics I’ve listened to. They rival the greats (the thumbs up guys, the malton falcon, those linoleum guys). They are of diverse interests. They flex their muscles a lot on many different topics. They invite so much more criticism upon themselves than any other critics. And they clearly have a love for the mediums and genuine affection for each other.

Do I agree with them? Not all the time. Can I express exactly what I disagree with when I do, and is it still informative? Absolutely.

Listen. Learn. Love. Loathe. But don’t languish in life without listening long time.

I’d buy that for a dollar.

Kevin LP fan ,

I’m in geek heaven

I’m grateful these guys find the time to do so many different podcasts many of which you can get on their Patreon which is well worth it for anyone looking for smart, funny, insightful commentary on so many topics. The sheer randomness is definitely part of the appeal.
