#Featured, #Movies

The original Blade Runner is a film without heroes, but to me, the most sympathetic characters have always been the four rogue replicants that Rick Deckard hunts down […]

Star Trek: Discovery Recap FREQCast on 01.04: The Butcher’s Knife…
This week’s episode of Star Trek: Discovery has a mouthful of a title (“The Butcher’s Knife Cares Not for the Lamb’s Cry”) and Anita and Ebony have several mouthfuls of things to say about it. The two are cautiously optimistic about the development of Discovery’s depiction of the Klingons, as well as our introduction to Ripper […]

Join us as we relive all the fantastic moments in this powerful and poignant episode, while also pondering the questions this episode raises, […]

It’s somewhat […]
Halt and Catch Fire Recap FREQCast on 04.06: Who Needs a Guy
This week’s episode of Halt and Catch Fire was certainly a game-changer for the series, which has all of three episodes (next week’s standard one-hour show and then a two-hour finale) left to go. Halt is a series that has always been about connections on multiple levels: the connections in the characters’ lives and the kinds […]
