JJ Abrams Rewind Podcast for Revolution 2.13 – Happy Endings

Aaron gets some old time religion
Aaron gets some old time religion

Aaron gets a bit of that ol’ time religion in this last episode before the Winter Olympics.

Almost Human final five season one episodes through March 3.  Bones moves back to Monday.

Is Charlie pregnant with Connor’s child? Is Rachel pregnant with Miles’s child? A whole lotta shaking goin’ on in this episode.

We were impressed that the Neville’s could travel from Washington DC to Texas in five days.

Doesn’t everyone know that the movie “The Notebook” is kryptonite for men?  Nice recovery by Rachel naming “Evil Dead II” as an appropriate drive-in movie.

In the next episode, we do discover the secret of the nanites.  Will the Olympic break be the nail in the coffin for Revolution?

Stay tuned for more excitement in the world of JJ Abrams.

JJ Abrams Rewind Podcast #040 for NBC Revolution 2.12 – Captain Trips

Yes, there is a giant concrete statue of a cowboy.  However, it is in a town between Lubbock and Amarillo.

Star Wars Episode VII script is complete!!

Rachel’s disguise fooled no one. Art and Karen debate whether those with chronic diseases should already be gone in this world. Did Julia strike a deal with Doyle to preserve her standing? Are we now done with Julia?  Are we done with Gene?  I guess Truman was not as clueless about the disease then we thought.

Art and Karen learn that Captain Trips is a reverence to the Stephen King novel “The Stand”

Bret Michaels makes a guest appearance on the next episode.  Not very well advertised.Rachel, you fool no one.

JJ Abrams Rewind Podcast for Revolution 2.11 – Mis Dos Padres

MyTwoDadsJoshua Jackson stars in new Showtime series

Oscar Nomintions for Gravity and Star Trek Into Darkness

All that was missing was Greg Evigan and Paul Riser in this episode  Did Darius Rucker have an uncredited cameo?  Charlie has had little to do in the last two episodes.  It appears Priscilla  was more then a trophy wife for Aaron. I guess we know what is now in the oranges, but does Truman Know? Will Julia be dead soon, the cost of wanting to maintain her standing?

AlmostHumanyouarehere Star Wars News

This is actually the second episode filmed. per EW magazine

Self guided bullets

Art made fun of Detective Stahal this week and was appropriately smacked by Karen.  This episode had us scratching our heads over story continuity. Then we found an article that this was the second filmed episode,  after the three week hiatus, we will have episode three.  After that we should be on track. Rudy dropped hints to future episodes when talking about going undercover and sex bots.

NBC sets premiere date for Believe

Happy New Year for all of us at the podcast.  Was Paul the hall monitor back in elementary school?  During a rolling blackout, wouldn’t emergency services have priority on power? (We do in Denver)  Will this show evolve into the Dorian and Rudy hour?

Has the internet evolved at all, or do we still have a medium where all can hide and be snarkey.  Props to the 1910 Bubblegum company for the opening song.  As always, thanks for listening and send us your feedback.

Insurance is still not widely available, and clinical work is now left to computers.  Did two Dorian’s this week, “Double our pleasure”?  Although  the 494 stopped the rehabilitated robber, was he committing a crime anyway?  will the Fringe actors Wyman mentions be new characters or older versions of the ones we love?  Happy New Year from the folks at Mrs. Beasley Omnimedia.

JJ Abrams Rewind Podcast #034 for Almost Human 1.05 – Blood Brothers

AlmosthumankendollBelieve – show runner changes

This episode of Almost Human contains full-frontal nudity.  Viewer discretion is advised.

We discuss if there will be a possible romance between Kennex and Stahal. Can robots be sex offenders? We should not have been surprised that Dorian was anatomically correct as he was the foundation for sexbots. Rudy will be the “Nurse Danko” of the series.  Moldanado finally gets enough strong story time that we can see Lili Taylor act.  Are the stories better when they have humor.  Why are the MX models taking showers?  Will Dorian and Kennex be sharing an apartment in the future and will we have a futuristic “Odd Couple”?  Will a 1.9 weekly rating keep this show on the air?  Should Fox have scheduled this instead of Brooklyn None-nine after the Super Bowl?

After we finished the last episode, The show 60 minutes had a piece on Amazon and their proposed delivery by drone.

Never eat anything that screams at you.  Art plays the theme song from “Sea Hunt”.  Is Paul going to be the “Debbie Downer” of this show? Rudy no longer can keep a low profile after blowing his cover. We had a number of  ’44 minute’  leaps in the story this week. Why haven’t they  invented a gun that can make its own bullets? This episode was better then the last.

JJ Abrams Rewind Podcast #032 for Almost Human 1.03 – Are You Listening?

Die_hardArt and Karen review the movie “Die Hard”.  This episode was almost taken scene by scene from that holiday classic.  All that was missing was “Yippie, kai yea” and Argile, the chauffeur. we tried to like this episode, but other than the Kennex and Dorian connection there is not a lot left compelling to this show.  We try to figure out what would make this show better, but are not coming up with anything then having a “Fringe” guest star of the week.  In the future, no one remembers Elton John.  If Kennex’s leg needs to be charged nightly, we we have an episode where it runs out of power? Why do we not have self-driving cars?  Is it safe to drive without a lid on your coffee cup?  we explore these issues and more, send us your thoughts.

JJ Abrams Rewind Podcast for Almost Human 1.01 and 1.02

almost_human_2_0 Art and Karen review the first two episodes of Fox Networks”Almost Human” .  Both agree the second episode was better then the first. Michael Ealy’s character Dorian will be the saving feature of this show.  Lili Taylor’s character Moldonado will need a bit more horsepower in the next few weeks to be a viable.   Are the three laws of robotics by Asimov in use on this show?  What do you tell someone when another has died?  Will you remember me?  Why did Dorian set up an online dating profile for Kennex?  Will the ratings be strong enough for Fox to order additional episodes?  Why are the first uses of technology the military or adult entertainment?

JJ Abrams Rewind Podcast #029 for Revolution 2.08 – Come Blow Your Horn

aaronhornArt has actually forgiven Aaron for walking out on his first wife after this episode.  Cynthia had some nerve blaming him for killing her abusive husband.   We briefly discuss the start of Almost Human. Will you be watching?  Monroe had a light week after running off from protecting Aaron.  A brief shoutout to ‘Ghostbusters’.  We introduce a new Allenford and say goodbye to an old one. Nothing says love like shooting your wife for treason.  Art calls it correctly about Jason.  Rachel was willing to kill her father for the greater good.  Gene asks the group if anyone ever did anything bad in trying to do the right thing.  Next weeks episode will reveal ‘the mystery behind the power’. Is this the nanites, or the patriots? The Horn backstory makes him an almost sympathetic character. Who is now ‘extra crispy’ in the vault?

JJ Abrams Rewind Podcast #028 for Revolution 2.07 – The Patriot Act

RevolutionHorn Art and Karen break down a wall ‘Kool-aid’ style on this episode of the podcast.

Star Wars Episode VII set for December 18, 2015 release

Rachel drugs Monroe at the request of Charlie.  This is a great way to rebuild a mother/daughter relationship. Aaron seems to only be able to ‘extra crispy’ no more then two people at a time.  Now that Gene is out as the leak, will we see him go out in a redemptive blaze of glory? Is Cynthia all done with Aaron now that she has seen his power? What was that white powder Dr. Horn placed in his glass of water?  Is Horn the Caucasian Neville? With only two episode left until the winter break, what will the cliffhanger look like?

JJ Abrams Rewind Podcast #027 for Revolution 2.06 – Dead Man Walking

monroedeadKaren is out for another week, but She will be back next week.

The tagline for this episode was “An end of an Era”  But the question remains, “Is Monroe really dead?”  With the way this episode concluded, I expect some type of revival.

Gene is the “mole”, did Rachel figure this out before the execution?  When will we introduce Monroe’s son, now that we know the Miles has had him hidden all these years. We finally had the backstory on how Tom met Monroe.  Will Tom be able to deprogram his son?  Barry Tubb has guest stared the last two episodes as the Head Texas Ranger.  Do we remember when he was Wolfman in Top Gun?  Is the Neville/Allenford story line the weakest of this show?  What can we expect the next three weeks as we lead up to the winter finale?
