Episode 22 – Endings

The continued outrage over the ending(s) of Mass Effect 3 inspired us to talk about endings this week – what makes a “good” ending to a book, game, movie or TV show different from a “bad” ending or even a plain, simple “satisfying” ending. Warning: we spoil the ending to everything from Mass Effect 3 to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid to the latest A Song of Ice and Fire book and even The Man With X-Ray Eyes.

We also talk about Anne’s pimped-out ride, the gradual collapse of the story in the Assassin’s Creed universe, ‘The Sweatbox’ documentary about the origins of The Emperor’s New Groove, Tintin (the movie), everyone’s boring opinion about the new Doctor Who companion and the premiere of the first 2 episodes of The Legend of Korra at KorraNation.com.

  • Intro: Apotheosis (from Journey) – Austin Wintory
  • Break: How It’s Gonna End – Tom Waits
  • 2nd break: Life and Death (from Lost) – Michael Giacchino
  • Outro: Not Going Home Again (from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) – Burt Bacharach
