This week is a packed grab-bag style podcast, as we make up for our blizzard-related week off by covering lots of news and goings-on – including the Super Bowl and related movie trailers, Sean’s thoughts on The X-Files revival, and our reactions on the horrifying majesty of Detective Pikachu – before diving into some video game reviews, including Jonathan’s thoughts on the latest and apparently final batch of Super Smash Bros DLC, Gravity Rush Remastered for the PS4, and Sean and Jonathan’s review of indie-puzzle-hit The Witness for the PS4.

The Weekly Stuff Podcast #132 - Discussing Steven Moffat's Doctor Who Departure



It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link.

What could have been a slow week was quickly re-energized with the surprising, game-changing announcement that, come the end of next year’s tenth series, Steven Moffat will be stepping down as showrunner of Doctor Who, to be replaced by Broadchurch creator Chris Chibnall in 2018. Given how much we love Doctor Who, and how closely we’ve followed Moffat’s run over the course of this podcast, this announcement was more than worthy of a deep-dive discussion. With Sean’s thoughts on Rebel Galaxy, some reflections on Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me from Jonathan, and more head-scratching at decisions related to the DC Cinematic Universe, that’s more than enough to turn a slow week into a busy podcast full of interesting topics.

Enjoy!

The Weekly Stuff Podcast #131 - Remembering David Bowie & Alan Rickman, and 2016 Video Games Preview



It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link.

This week’s episode starts with some sad reflections, as we look back on the lives and work of the late David Bowie and Alan Rickman, two artists who had incredible influences on our lives. After that, we move on to slightly more frivolous topics, discussing The Revenant, Oscar nominations, and Jonathan’s take on The Witcher III (Sean’s 2015 game-of-the-year, and Jonathan’s new why-didn’t-I-play-this-game-in-2015-of-the-year). And finally, for our main topic, we do our annual year-in-preview, looking at all the (known) video games coming out (or possibly coming out) in 2016, from Uncharted 4 to Final Fantasy XV to, of course, Persona 5. There’s a lot to look forward to in the coming months, even if 2016 has gotten off to a very sad start.

Enjoy!
