Four immortals try to remove their curse by reviewing one of the 1001 Movies/Albums/Songs/TV Shows You Must Consume Before You Die every week. Sure this will take 20 years, but who cares when you've been alive for centuries.
Tabu: A Story of the South Seas
Austin, Pedro and J.C. are back to talk about a silent film. Sarah is out this week which means left to their own devices, they spend too much time talking about Broadway adaptations and the premise of My Best Friend's Wedding. Then they get to the 1931 F.W. Murnau film set in the South Pacific and how it represented the culture and the characters.
My Brilliant Career
Last week was Scotland, this week The Immortals are off to Australia to watch Gillian Armstrong's gorgeous film, My Brilliant Career. Also J.C., Austin and Sarah bookend the review talking about theatre and Pedro talks about a terrible game show.
The Immortals need to go to Scotland to look at the stars. Just kidding, world's on fire. But maybe one day we can travel like the lead in Local Hero and meet Peter Capaldi....
It's a Gift / Hercules
You know what's a gift? The fact we spent way more time on Pedro's bonus pick of Disney's Hercules than the W.C. Fields "classic" that made us want to pull out our hair. We won't say we're in love with it.
My Fair Lady
JUST YOU WAIT 'ENRY 'IGGINS! Austin is so happy to talk about one of his favorite musicals, but what did everybody else think? Was the ending good? Was there too much yelling? Eliza's accent, bad? Find out! Also you will learn Pedro's bonus pick for next episode. And then at the very end you'll learn what it actually will be when he changed his mind days after recording.
It's been a minute but it's finally time to talk about a movie that Austin hadn't seen before. The Immortals watch the 1977 Senegalese film Ceddo.
Love this podcast
Theses guys have great chemistry. Could listen to them talk about anything.
Witty, Opionated and Enjoyable
First of all, I had to jump through an awful lot of hoops just to leave a review since I was probably the last person in the United States who didn't have an I Tunes account. You better appreciate this.
This show reviews a variety of Movies, Albums, Food, Children's Book, Song and TV Show that come from the 1001 Things To Do Before You Die books. While this can be quite entertaining, I do find it rather disappointing how many of the items are things you've never heard of or you can't find. I originally was playing catch up on past episodes but decided to skip around to the ones that have something on there that I am interested in.
The best part of the show, in my opinion, is when the cast discusses things off of the list. The "plot" with them in space is funny. I really like Intern and miss him. Also, when the cast discusses pop culture things is really good. The review of Return of the Jedi was probably my favorite. Austin is a wealth of information on everything.
I do wish we heard more from Adam, Pedro and Leigh. It feels like Sara sometimes overtakes the conversation to the detriment of the others.
Overall, this is a great podcast. It's fun, educational and a wonderful way to spend an hour or so a week.
Great at Anytime
This is a great podcast to listen to at all times. You could be cooking in the kitchen or going for a walk, or even sky diving at 13,000 and you will be fully entertained while listening to The Immortals. The different perspectives and balance of character make this a must view. Recommend to all.
