Salvation

day-one-cast-photoAfter a week off, the Zero Room returns with a new episode concentrating mostly on the new schedules announced by the networks for this fall. It’s  the usual collection of lawyer shows and medical dramas with a few Lost wannabes sneaking in to try to capture whatever it was that Lost captured five years ago. Here is a picture of the cast of Day One looking at something really mysterious located just above and to the right of the camera.

We also touch a little bit on Terninator: Salvation this week, although Jose didn’t get a chance to see it because he has an actual life. It’s worth seeing for the sheer magnitude of some of the action scenes but overall it falls flat and I left the theater wondering why anyone would spend so much money on something so pointless. There’s a lot wrong with it, and there’s a very interesting article over on CHUD that discusses the original script, the changes that were made along the way to accomodate Christian Bale, and the overall evolution of the project. I wouldn’t recommend reading it if you haven’t seen the movie. If you have already decided not to see it, read away.

Next week we’ll be talking about the Lost finale a little bit late, and I will probably find some time to complain about Dollhouse.

The Long Wait is Over

I don’t know if the reason we started this podcast was because of this movie, but we sure have talked a lot about it since we started. And what were we rewarded with for our long wait?  Actually a pretty darn good movie, full of adventure and fun, even though it lacked in plot and soul. So not a bad first step. As some one once said “We must walk before we can run”. Now that this new Trek is up on it’s feet, here’s hoping it can learn to run in the future.

Check out the show this week and enjoy two whopping hours of Trek talk with our Special Guest Dave Rossi.

We’ll be taking a week off next, which is probably a good idea after this massive podcast. See you in two weeks.

Year Two

So as we start our second year on the ‘cast I find it funny that we did one of these episodes a year ago. I think when we started this it was my hope that we would last a whole year, now that we’re in the groove I feel confident that we’ll last at least another.

Summer Time is a great time for movie fans and we spend most of this episode talking about what is coming up in the new season.
