After a bout of insomnia, Anne’s back to watching TV & movies and so this week she offers up a review of Pain & Gain and ponders why Fringe is so hard to watch while Hannibal goes down easy, while Bill complains about Iron Man 3 (spoiler warning for that) and tries to talk about Star Trek Into Darkness without spoiling it for listeners (or for Anne).
Then (starting at the 1 hr 20 min mark) it’s our lengthy Bioshock Infinite spoiler talk: who did what and why, when and where, pick apart the sometimes clumsy gameplay and praise the nifty world-building, and sort out the questions we had when the credits rolled.
Intro: God Only Knows – As performed by the Columbia Barbershop Quartet
Break: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun – As Performed by Gertie Stetson on the Battleship Bay calliope
2nd Break: Goodnight Irene – As performed by the good citizens of Columbia
Outro: Will The Circle Be Unbroken – As performed by Booker DeWitt and Elizabeth Comstock
Finally, at the 1:12 mark, we talk about the first 2 hours or so of Bioshock Infinite (up until when you meet Elizabeth for the first time). We theorize about what the hell is going on in the game, how the game might end, and gush over finally being able to play a game that isn’t afraid to tackle religious and racial themes.
Intro: King of Kings Song – Tomu Miyazaki
Break: New York Girls (My Dear Annie) – Finbar Furey
