Episode 379 Stargate SG-1 S01E01 Children of the Gods Part 2

Join Dave and Wayne for genre television show news, a glimpse into what the hosts are currently watching, commentary and analysis of the classic military science fiction series Stargate SG-1, and our listener feedback. 

This week on the SciFi TV Rewatch podcast we complete our look at the Stargate SG-1 pilot with “Children of the Gods Part 2.” With the four person SG-1 team now in place, Jackson’s theory that there are multiple pathways to the stars will be tested, and new relationships must now be forged. Apophis has taken Sha’re and Skaara into his fold, but his plan for Earth remains unclear. We consider the nude scene that appears on Dave’s DVD version but is absent on Wayne’s Amazon viewing.

In our What We're Watching segment, Dave is working way through the 2008 Hugo Award Winning novel titled The Three Body Problem by the Chinese science fiction writer Liu Cixin. Wayne finishes his Ozark run with mixed reactions but continues his high praise for the season finale of Lovecraft Country

In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands steps up his genre viewing and his podcast feedback schedule.

Episode 378 Stargate SG-1 S01E01 Children of the Gods Part 1

Join Dave and Wayne for genre television show news, a glimpse into what the hosts are currently watching, commentary and analysis of the classic military science fiction series Stargate SG-1, and our listener feedback. 

This week on the SciFi TV Rewatch podcast we address we begin our journey with a series based on the 1994 Roland Emmerich film Stargate. Like all pilots, “Children of the Gods Part 1” lays the groundwork for robust character development while introducing a series of plot threads. Can Col. O’Neil overcome his disdain for scientists and accept Capt. Samantha Carter as an equal member of the team? Will Daniel Jackson’s supposition that the gate may be part of a vast network across the universe turn out to be true? Time will tell. 

In our What We're Watching segment, Dave gives a less than enthusiastic reading of Fox’s new series NeXt. Wayne has high praise for the finale of the Amazon series The Boys.

In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands points out the medical trend in Amanda Tapping’s body of work.

Join Dave and Wayne for genre television show news, a glimpse into what the hosts are currently watching, commentary and analysis of Netflix’s Hemlock Grove, and our listener feedback. 

This week on the SciFi TV Rewatch podcast we address Patreon supporter Fred from the Netherland’s request that we continue our yearly visit with the quirky horror tale Hemlock Grove. Battlestar Galactica alums Kandyse McClure (Dr. Chasseur) and Aaron Douglas (Sheriff Sworn) find themselves at the center of an apex predator killing spree. Chasseur’s challenge of Peter sets the stage for the werewolf and his upir companion Roman to band together in the search for the creature responsible for the two deaths.

In our What We're Watching segment, Dave praises the series finale of The 100 and sheepishly admits to having binged Emily in Paris on Netflix. Wayne takes a more socially acceptable approach by continuing his relationship with Ozark.

In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands mentions the developing importance of Roman’s mother Olivia played by Dutch actress Famke Janssen.

Episode 376 Brave New World S01E09 Soma Red

Join Dave and Wayne for genre television show news, a glimpse into what the hosts are currently watching, commentary and analysis of NBC Peacock’s Brave New World, and our listener feedback. 

This week on the SciFi TV Rewatch podcast we discuss the season finale which explores the after effects of the Epsilon rebellion that John inadvertently starts. How much culpability does the savage enjoy in this matter, and how will he integrate into the new world that Lenina has been tasked to develop. Of course, the biggest mystery involves the box that Bernard and Helm take to the Savage Lands and how much control Indra still holds over both worlds.

In our What We're Watching segment, Dave reminds viewers that the Netflix horror series The Haunting of Bly Manor will drop on October 9, and Wayne has good things to say about the Emmy award winning series Ozark.

In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands wonders whether John really had any choice about whether or not to distance himself from the Epsilon rebellion.
