The Weekly Stuff Podcast #129 - How I Spent my Winter Vacation: The Hateful Eight, Sherlock, Doctor Who Christmas, and more!

Welcome to another year 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.

We took a brief break over the holidays, recovering from what was a very eventful 2015, and now we are back with two new episodes, one of which is posting today, the second of which will be released this coming Monday, January 11th, to get us back on track for our normal Monday releases.

In this first episode back, Sean and I play catch-up and discuss everything we did over the holidays – from playing Final Fantasy XIV online, to catching up on TV Shows like The Flash, to seeing The Hateful Eight 70mm roadshow in theatres. Sean reviews the Sherlock special, “The Abominable Bride,” and to round things off, we provide our customary review and discussion of the Doctor Who Christmas special, “The Husbands of River Song.”

And come back Monday for the second-part, in which we look back at 2015 with our Top 10 TV Shows, Movies, and Video Games of the year!

  1. You mentioning that Ennio Morricone would be in your top 5 favorite composers of all time list leads me to suggest you guys making a top list of movie composers or even movie scores. Scores like the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy could fill just one slot. I remember you making a great list of your favorite Composer-Director teams a while back.

    1. I did do that, didn't I? Totally forgot about it. I think that would be a great idea for a list. I have a bunch of music-themed topics on the docket for a rainy day. We need to do film scores in general as well.
