Episode 29: Lost – The Unanswered Questions

A very disgruntled Tom takes Morgan through one of his all-time favourite TV shows: Lost, marking 7 years since it ended on May 23.

Though, you wouldn’t know it by how angry he sounds when discussing all the big questions that were never properly answered, from The Numbers to The Smoke Monster. Meanwhile, Morgan shows off his impressive Matthew Fox and Joseph Fiennes impressions. Now, where’s that DHARMA beer?

WARNING: Contains HUGE spoilers for the whole of Lost.

Episode 26: Keanu Reeves Special

No way. No way! Something a little bit different this time as Tom and Morgan look back at the career of an underrated geek hero of cinema: Mr Keanu Reeves.

We delve into the man himself, his history, his music, his not-so well received performances and in particular, these six iconic movies in Keanu’s filmography:

  • Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure / Bogus Journey
  • Point Break
  • Speed
  • The Matrix
  • Constantine
  • John Wick

Tom helps Morgan refresh his memory of the good old days of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, and try not to have our childhoods ruined by shoddy production, racist undertones and dodgy spandex suits. We also discuss the ‘classic’ movie, its many TV spinoffs and the future film.

Beer choice: Doom Bar (reference – Rita Repulsa’s impending doom. Yeah, we know.)
