    Join Dave and Wayne for genre television show news, a glimpse into what the hosts are currently watching, commentary and analysis of the Prime Video series  The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.

    This week on the SciFi TV Rewatch podcast we discuss the tepid welcome Galadriel receives upon arriving in Numenor with Halbrand, but it’s her companion’s hidden past that opens up new narrative possibilities. We also lay the groundwork for later discussions about Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey Monomyth and which characters might fit the framework.

    In our What We're Watching segment, Dave wonders why it’s so difficult to find information regarding the international shows he and his wife are watching. Wayne admits both he and his son are happy they didn’t watch the most recent episode of House of the Dragon together. 

    In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands wonders about the show’s pacing but for now, will give it time to grow.

    Join Dave and Wayne for genre television show news, a glimpse into what the hosts are currently watching, commentary and analysis of the Prime Video series  The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.

     

    This week on the SciFi TV Rewatch podcast we discuss the series premiere of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power and the possibility that we might see three or four characters embark on heroic journeys worthy of Joseph Campbell’s monomyth. Admittedly, we know how many of these storylines will play out, but not how we’ll get there.

     

    In our What We're Watching segment, Wayne’s reading the classic Robert Heinlein novel Stranger in a Strange Land, and Dave admits that he’d forgotten he actually watched the second season of The Man in the High Castle. 

     

    In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands admits that a certain level of mystery doesn’t appear to be part of the series’ mythos, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t questions to be explored.

So Far, So Good

Found this while looking for English language discussions of Dark, and i enjoyed the discussion of the first couple of episodes. I am excited to see there is another set of episodes for a rewatch, as well as many other spec fic shows I love. A really solid and thoughtful recap and light analysis of the show. May come back with a more detailed review once I have listened to a lot more episodes.

Fun Show

I found this show while looking for a Dark Angel Podcast. At first I didn't know what to expect, however I really like that the two host are watching the show for the first time. The sometimes focus on the wrong details, but I do get to relive the show through them. I will be downloading your Birds of Prey, Firefly, Librarians, and Dollhouse stuff also. Please, Please do Reaper. Thanks for the show.
