Long time listeners will know that we have made reference to and provided coverage of the influential, surreal mystery series 'Twin Peaks'. We have already done an overview of the show, had Michael J Anderson on to discuss his career and contributions, but this is the biggie: this week Mike sits down for a chat with co-creator of Twin Peaks, Mark Frost.

Episode 128- Non-Live, Live Show: The BEST

Confused yes? Ok here’s the skinny, we were gonna do a live show this month, but the tech (and scheduling) conspired so we went ahead with the recording, but didn’t broadcast it live over Ustream. As per ‘real’ live show’s it is a ‘topic’ show this week as we discuss the concept of ‘the best’. We have all seen the lists of “The best film of all time...” and this poses many questions.. Do we agree with them? Who writes these things? Are ‘favourite’ and ‘best’ different? Should they be? Do we care? Did we do ANY planning for this show?? Throw in a displaced chat about our recent viewing and some listener feedback and it almost feels like a podcast...

Episode 121- Live Show from 27th Nov 2010

This week we take some listener feedback, have fun on Twitter and have a chinwag with the chat-room. Topics covered you ask? Paul FINALLY catches The Walking Dead and Inception, Mike talks Harry Potter 7a, and we get into a lengthy discussion about budget vs content, with a couple of side roads into how 'expectations' can ruin films.... This episode is pretty much as recorded, so there is no fanciness or production value AT ALL, it be here in it's crappy glory...

Bonus Episode: A Conversation with Michael J. Anderson

Long time listeners will know that we do not need any excuse to talk 'Twin Peaks', so it was a pleasure to have a chat with genre legend Michael J Anderson about not only his work as 'The Man From Another Place' in 'Peaks' but his experiences working on Star Trek, The X-Files and Mulholland Drive...
