The Weekly Stuff #199 – Comic-Con News, Splatoon 2, Planet of the Apes Trilogy, & Twin Peaks Part 11



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.

It’s a surprisingly jam-packed episode this week, as we get to talk about a slew of movies, games, and TV. First up is a boatload of news, movie trailers, and more out of San Diego Comic-Con, including more DC shenanigans and an incredible look at Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok. Then we talk some recent movies, with Jonathan reviewing Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk and Sean catching up on the recent Planet of the Apes trilogy, leading to a chat about all 3 films including War for the Planet of the Apes. Then we talk about 3 recent (and upcoming) games: last week’s beta for Destiny 2, Jonathan’s thoughts on Nintendo’s wildly fun Splatoon 2 for Nintendo Switch, and Sean’s reaction to the amazing Nier Automata released earlier this year. And finally, we head to Twin Peaks for our latest review of The Return with the casually insane Part 11, an episode chock full of guns, hell portals, and cherry pie.

Enjoy, and look forward to the special 200th episode coming early next week!

The Weekly Stuff Podcast #198 – 13th Doctor Who Announcement, Destiny 2 Beta, and Twin Peaks Part 10



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 brings with it some pretty monumental news, as we not only get to talk about the announcement of the 13th Doctor on Doctor Who, but that Jodie Whittaker will be the first woman to take up the iconic role. It’s a huge moment for the series, an exciting one that brings so many possibilities, some of which we ponder here. Sean also talks about the Destiny 2 beta, Jonathan looks back on the second season of Broadchurch (a show written by upcoming Doctor Who showrunner Chris Chibnall and co-starring upcoming Doctor Jodie Whittaker), and we break down a bunch of interesting news from the past week. And finally, we dive into the dark, wonderful, surprisingly sexual insanity of Twin Peaks: The Return Part 10 in our weekly spoiler-cast segment.

Enjoy!
