Even though we hit a huge milestone with Episode 50 last week, Episode 51 carries even more emotional baggage as it is being released on the exact 1-year anniversary of the launch of For All Intents and Purposes. We made it!
Week in Geek: It was a bit of shared purposes this week as both guys played old, old games. Andrew obsessively played the Final Fantasy VI iteration that was released for the Game Boy Advance while Dan played the recently HD remastered released of the Lucasarts’ classic, Grim Fandango.
Year in Geek: Dan and Andrew take a minute to look back at the year that was, indeed, for all intents and purposes.
The Rashomon Effect: This week, Andrew and Dan decided to discuss the increasing and prevalent phenomenon in television that takes its unique storytelling framework from the 1950 Akira Kurosawa film, Rashomon, where one story is told from multiple perspectives.
The Rashomon Job: If you haven’t been exposed too much to Rashomon-type stories, Dan and Andrew recommend checking out the standalone Leverage episode, “The Rashomon Job.” It’s a nice introduction to both the show itself (little context is needed) and to the idea of The Rashomon Effect.
