Podcast May 26th – Alien: Covenant, Baywatch and Twin Peaks

Cory and Tristan are back in a big way, much like a certain television series that hasn’t been around since they were still innocent children. That’s right, Sunday saw the highly anticipated return of Twin Peaks, David Lynch’s mystery opus that brought to television an entirely new genre of small-town murder fantasies. Lynch literally changed the game, and here he has new episodes finally to either answer the questions left behind in 1992, or just fuck around with our heads for a few more episodes. Either way, it’s a damn fine way to spend some time.

A very bad way to spend some time would be to see the film adaptation of Baywatch, according to Cory. Dive in to our podcast to find out why, like the recent adaptation of CHiPs, this film was a horrible mistake.

Speaking of horrible mistakes, a lot of space-faring journeyman make them along the way to a new colony planet in Alien: Covenant, but you probably already would have guessed that from it…being an Alien movie. The disposable crew this time includes Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride and Billy Crudup. Michael Fassbender, of course, returns as the Lawrence of Arabia-lite android David.

Finally, Tristan brings us one of the many unsung films from late 2016, lost in the glut of Oscar races – Christine – a little film that tells the story of oddball reporter Christine Chubbuck as she navigates changing methods in the news world of Sarasota, Florida.
