    A Promise Kept | Scene 40 (The Finale!)

    Well, here we are. After 5 years, 44 episodes and thousands of minutes spent talking about this movie... We've reached the final scene of James Cameron's TITANIC.

    What a journey it's been. In this "finale" episode, we discuss the epically beautiful theatrical curtain call (plus the wacky alternate ending) and feature a collection of emails and voicemails from some of our lovely listeners!

    Thank you all so much for your passion and support over the years. It's been a blast... but it's not over yet! The end credits episode is up next!

    The Carpathia | Scene 39

    Part one of our "two-part finale" is here! Can you believe it?! WE CAN'T!

    In this episode we talk all about the extended Carpathia sequence, lots of deleted dialogue, final payoffs, and peel back the layers of a couple key moments.

    We also feature four voicemails from listeners and want to say a huge thank you to them for sending them in! If you'd like your voice to be heard, you still have time to submit a voice recording for the final scene and our "end credits" episode! :)

    As always, thank you all so much for listening.

    I'll Never Let Go (with guest Alexandra Boyd) | Scene 38

    We reunite with Titanic cast member, first class woman Alexandra Boyd, to discuss such an imperative scene in the movie as Rose begins to live out her promise to Jack.

    Alexandra shares some behind the scenes tidbits with us, as well as some unique perspectives on the scene as a filmmaker herself! Big thanks to her for guesting again!

    The Promise (with guest Liz Osban) | Scene 37

    While waiting for help to arrive, Rose makes a promise to Jack that she will carry with her for the rest of her life. Later, Officer Lowe returns in lifeboat 14 to a very grim sight.

    For this scene we brought back our pal Liz Osban to discuss yet another massively important one!

    Sea of Humanity (The "Door" Debate) | Scene 36

    We've reached the scene that birthed possibly the most notorious "debate" in cinematic history. In our opinion, of course, there's not much of a debate here. Listen as we address (and squash) multiple arguments people have made over the last 26 years!

    We also read a listener email, go over a few historical beats and discuss some deleted scenes!

    Death of Titanic - Part 2 (w/ guest Pablo O'Hana) | Scene 35

    Here we go.

    We've brought on another special guest to discuss what many consider to be the main event here. Fellow Titanic obsessive Pablo O'Hana joins us for a breakdown of "Death of Titanic - Part 2." We had a great time chatting about such an impactful scene. In fact, this scene was the entry point of Pablo's Titanic origin story! He tells us all about that and provides such great commentary!

    Thanks for coming on the pod, Pablo!

Awesome

I listened to every episode over the course of 4 days. The hosts play off each other well, one being something of a Titanic expert and the other being a fan. They use multiple forms of media to draw conclusions and to explain the way things happened. They don’t just discuss the movie, but the historical facts as well. And they talk about Horner’s score a lot (which I love because it’s fantastic and makes the movie). If you are a fan, give it a listen, you won’t be disappointed.

Meh

Overall, I appreciate a scene by scene breakdown, because I’m a huge fan of Titanic. Unfortunately, Brittany’s constant impressions/direct quotes are distracting along with her consistent pronunciation of the word “drawing” like “drawering.” I wish Ethan’s commentary added more value relative to Brittany’s… It almost feels like he has never seen Titanic.
