“The Prisoner” microPodcast [Dance of the Dead]

prisoner-03

 

 
Kurt Halfyard & Nat Almirall swap their togas for khakis, white piped jackets, the occasional blue turtleneck, and suave buttons to bring you another microcast, this time focusing on the celebrated, allegorical, and surreal 1967 series The Prisoner.

Conceived by the enigmatic Patrick McGoohan, “The Prisoner” follows a British ex-spy who ‘privately, personally, and by hand’ resigns his post only to be gassed and spirited to a bizarre Village, a place where all the other peculiar inhabitants are identified by numbers and overseen by an ominous, but ever revolving Number 2. As the spy, now renamed Number 6, seeks an escape, Number 2, ‘by hook or by crook,’ attempts to uncover the reason for Number 6’s resignation.

Join Numbers K & N as they break down each of the 17 episodes, unraveling the metaphors, tracking Number 6 on the Dickishness Behavior Scale, engaging in a bit of the ultra passive-aggressiveness, and lavishing praise on the monolithic Leo McKern.

What do the Cold War, Lewis Carroll, Gay Barry Goldwater, and Lava Lamps(tm) have in common? What is the best way to escape from being tied to a chair? How do you make a Village Iced Tea? And what is up with those umbrellas? Listen in, and then you will know everything…

The first eleven episodes are now available for streaming (see table of contents below) or in the RowThree podcast feed to send to whatever listening device you prefer:

 

After the Hype 128 – A Jurassic Showdown

postbanner2ugnwnom

 

This week on the podcast we introduce a new format in which we take two related movies and analyze them in super smart ways – almost like we went to school for this sort of thing. The two films on the table are JURASSIC PARK and JURASSIC WORLD. Get ready to dig up some nostalgia for a great flick. No, we don’t mean the Chris Pratt one. Although Chris Pratt can tame our raptors any time.

An extra special shoutout to our EXTRA SPECIAL GUESTS – RED ROB ROY, who did an interesting job with the movie breakdowns.

BASSETT:
“The fact that it’s a recording of two dudes speaking about movies is not what interests me.”
 
WOODS:
“Go on.”
 
BASSETT:
“What interests me… is that there is approximately two hours and fifty-three minutes of it.

The 100. Get over your fear of the CW and watch it already!

The holidays have come and gone and we’ve been watching a butload of stuff. I’m talking full on catch up mode in both the TV and movie fronts so it’s no surprise that this month’s episode of “what else we’ve been watching” runs a little long.

Listen in as Dale (Letterboxd), Colleen and I (Letterboxd) catch up on what kept us sane through the holidays. And beyond!

Mamo 437: Asshat Assets

Mamo!

Deadpool!! The R-rated superhero flick’s massive over-performance this past weekend has thrown everyone into a tizzy, including us, if by “tizzy” you mean “questioning some of our previous statements about Ryan Reynolds.” We toss the ball around a bit, with respect to the modern movie star and the growth of the comic book movie genre, before taking several more choice swipes at the imminent death rattle of Batman v. Superman.

Soundtrack Of Your Life #16: Tank Girl

Look, if you want to torture me, spank me, lick me, do it. But if this podcast shit continues, shoot me now, please...

Each episode, Corey Pierce welcomes a guest (or guests) onto the show who has chosen a compilation or soundtrack that speaks to a memorable era of their life. The soundtrack will play underneath and serves as a springboard to discussion about the music itself, how it works within the film, and what was going on with their life at the time of its release.

For episode 16, Corey finally welcomes RowThree’s own /Kurt Halfyard for, in proper Kurt fashion, a long and meandering journey into the wonderful world of white men talking about feminism, what you believe vs how you believe it, collecting items as a metaphor for life, falling off trends, curating preteens’ tastes, and more. All of this set to the acclaimed soundtrack of the 90’s bomb/secretly good Lori Petty vehicle (no pun intended), Tank Girl.
