Episode 14 – Cautiously Pessimistic

Episode 14 – Cautiously Pessimistic

With a revived vigor, Dan and Andrew tackle one of the [relatively] biggest topics yet: Doctor Who. Not to worry, however, because they surround their Doctor Who talk with the usual thoughtful commentary about topics that For All Intents and Purposes envelops.

Week in Geek: Andrew watches To Be Takei and Dan talks about working with an artist on Long John.

The Mass Effect Series: Another installment in their look at culturally and intellectually important video games, Dan and Andrew expand their breadth and discuss why the entire Mass Effect series is so important.

Discussion: As expected, Andrew and Dan watched the new episode of Doctor Who‘s Series 8, “Deep Breath”, a bit too closely and have a lot of things to say about it, focusing on the 12th Doctor (as played by Peter Capaldi), its themes, and how it fits in to the show overall.

The Big Lebowski: Expanding their breadth even more, Dan and Andrew discuss a movie that they feel is culturally and intellectually important, hoping to expose an angle on the Coen Bros.’ The Big Lebowski that you haven’t really considered before.

Question: Much like Comic Con before it, another huge convention is about to happen––the Penny Arcade Expo, colloquially known as PAX (or PAX Prime). So, with that in mind we want to know,

What came out of PAX that got you excited and/or intrigued?

Since it hasn’t happened yet, Andrew and Dan couldn’t quite answer the question. However, we’d love to hear from you! Leave a comment at the post for this episode at forall.libsyn.com, or e-mail us at forallpod@gmail.com.
