Episode 368 Brave New World S01E01 Pilot

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

This week on SciFi TV Rewatch we discuss the series premiere of NBC Peacock’s Brave New World. While it’s difficult to completely divorce ourselves from Huxley’s novel, we judge the show on its own merits as an independent entity that is “influenced by” the classic 1932 dystopian work.

In our What We're Watching segment, Dave completes Simon Barry’s latest offering Warrior Nun, and even though he’s fairly satisfied with the current season of Marvel Agents of SHIELD, whether Fitz ever returns doesn’t matter to him any more. Caught a bit off guard by Norsemen’s third season, Wayne, nonetheless, is on board with the narrative paradigm shift.

In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands wonders whether the writers of NBC Peacock’s Brave New World will draw from previous attempts to bring Huxley’s novel to the small screen.

This week on SciFi TV Rewatch we discuss the series finale “The Paradise,” and examine the Tannhaus twist that introduces the third and decisive world.

Join Dave and Wayne for genre television show news, a glimpse into what the hosts are currently watching, commentary and analysis for the third and final season of Dark , and our listener feedback. 

This week on SciFi TV Rewatch the show’s recurring symbols and motifs make up much of the discussion as we revisit the yellow coat, yellow dress, and yellow barrels in addition to the “For Charlotte” pocket watch, St. Christopher medal, and the bracelet that young Tronte gives to Jana. Though we spend much of the episode in 1954, it’s the startling revelation Adam presents Yellow Coat Martha that sets the tone for the remainder of the series. 

In our What We're Watching segment, Dave returns to the international crime drama arena and begins the Finnish series Deadwind which just dropped its second season. Wayne finishes watching the Disney film of the hit Broadway play Hamilton.

In Listener Feedback, Fred from the Netherlands points out that the lips scars of the Unknown trio change sides depending on which world they inhabit. Are there, in fact, two sets of trios?
