Terminus Podcast — Episode 23 — Random Fandom Episode Generator: The Fires of Pompeii: Smoke. Chickens. Chaos.

Just on the tail end of a American Thanksgiving celebrations and chaos, here is the newest episode of ‘Terminus’, wherein I discuss the S4 story, ‘The Fires of Pompeii’. All as a continuation, of course, of my ongoing ‘Random Fandom Episode Generator’ series.

Terminus Podcast — Episode 22 – Bigger on the Inside: The Face of Evil: Edge of Sevateem

We are returned! We are here!

And on this episode of ‘Terminus’, I discuss Leela of the Sevateem’s debut story ‘The Face of Evil’. All as a continuation, of course, of my ongoing ‘Bigger on the Inside’ series about some of my favorite companion’s first stories. This one is especially happy-making and sentimental for me, by the way, as Leela was actually my very first companion back in the day when I was young.

Terminus Podcast — Episode 21 – Random Fandom Episode Generator: In the House: The Doctor’s Wife

On this episode of ‘Terminus’, I discuss the 2011 love-letter-to-‘Doctor Who’-story, ‘The Doctor’s Wife’.

Inside you’ll find some Neil Gaiman love, some supporting and main cast love, some shipping love (mostly TARDIS/Doctor and Amy/Eleven, natch), some open communication love, and hell, even also some podcast love and some arguably-Royalist love.

Terminus Podcast — Episode 20 – Bigger on the Inside: Smith and Jones: Completely Mad

 

On this episode, my discussion is probably equal parts raves and equal parts rants (I’m not so good at math, but that sounds about right) and overall just A WHOLE LOTTA FEELS. Seriously, this is probably the most shiptastic episode I’ve ever done (Martha/Doctor is still sort of my OTP), so that shippy aspect could possibly put people off, but, hey, it’s how I feel about the episode and Martha’s tenure on the show, so I had to just go with it to be authentic. *shrug*

Terminus Podcast — Episode 19 – Finest Exploding Restaurants: The Husbands of River Song

On this belated episode, I indulge in some Andrew Cartmel love, I lament a bit about my current state of Moffat-Hate-Fatigue, I feel far too many feels discussing ‘Husbands of River Song’, I rant a bit about the show’s portrayal of Rose and her relationship with the Doctor (contrasting it with River and the Doctor’s relationship, natch), and I even embarrass myself quite a bit by uncharacteristically tacking on some small boopers/outtakes at the end of the show (despite my perfectionist side screaming in protest!).

Terminus Podcast — Episode 18 – Sad and Beautiful: End of S9 Review

 

I’ve long heard tales from other podcasters of ‘cursed’ episodes that have either been lost to time or were just vast struggles to get out. So, I guess it was inevitable that I’d have one of those misfortunes myself. Yes, this episode had tons of stumbling blocks, almost too many to name, but its finally here (albeit about 2 months late!). I do hope that it is worth the wait!

Terminus Podcast — Episode 17 — I’m Just a Bill: Random Fandom Musings

OMG, I’m back! Is anyone still out there? *crickets* Um, maybe not. Anyway, it’s really good to be back, finally. I’ve had tons of Big Life Stuff pod-blocking me all year, but I think I’m now in a good place to get back aboard the good-ship Terminus. Admittedly I was a bit under the weather recording the episode, but I was just so determined to get a new episode done and dusted, I went forward with it anyway. Let it be known that many coughs were valiantly sacrificed on the cutting floor, though. So, that was definitely a challenge! Well, that and trying not to slip up and say ‘Chinballs’ instead of Chibnall, because REASONS.

Terminus Podcast — Episode 16 – Sleepyheads: Sleep No More

A little shorter of an episode than usual for me, but also one a bit on the political side of things this time around (yet again — though hopefully this won’t be a usual thing), here is my belated episode discussion of the recent Mark Gatiss story, ‘Sleep No More’.

Terminus Podcast — Episode 15 – Pod People: The Zygon Invasion and The Zygon Inversion

Coming to you a bit later than I’d planned (bad head cold + some Jessica Jones bingeing is a deadly combination for this podcaster, apparently), here is my episode discussion of the recent Zygon 2-parter. This was definitely one of my more personal episodes and certainly most political (which is admittedly odd to me), but then since the story was very political itself, I suppose it was somewhat hard to avoid? Oh, and this was also recorded before the recent Paris attacks, so any similarities to such discussions are entirely coincidental.

Terminus Podcast — Episode 14 – The Tide is High: The Girl Who Died and the Woman Who Lived

 

Herein I present a somewhat belated episode, wherein Clara completely steals the show for me, even with her little bit of screen-time in the second part, and, yeah, like a fool I’m just left making grabby hands at the screen for her. And also wherein I randomly have a bit of a go at RTD a few times during the show, which was admittedly not too pretty. I don’t know, he just seemed to keep coming up like a bobbing apple or a floating witch (trying to relate things to Halloween with my awkward analogies, yo!) for some reason! I suppose that recording at 6:00 AM after being up all night brings out my…punch-drunk and ranting side, apparently? You’ve been warned!
