It’s the last full episode for 2014 and, boy, it’s quite a show this week.
Week in Geek: Andrew reads the metafictional sci-fi novel, Redshirts, while Dan watches a movie nobody liked or saw…and liked it: Earth to Echo.
Boasts of Bethel: After having mentioned the Satoshi Kon manga, Opus, a few weeks ago, Dan discusses its meta-fictional qualities and how it both helps and hinders the comic.
Discussion: Sony Pictures was hacked by a mysterious, overseas group that exposed a bunch of previously classified documents. But what is the purpose––and what is the fallout––of this latest hacking endeavor?
World-Building & Storytelling: Based on a divisive article published by the Telegraph, Dan and Andrew launch into what seems to be the never-ending debate between what’s most important in fantasy and/or sci-fi fiction: a highly-realized world or the stories that are told in that world?
As mentioned above, this is the last regular show for the year; however, small updates will be released from now through the new year, so you won’t be without your beloved For All Intents and Purposes for long.
