It’s finally CRAFTSMANSHIP appreciation week on Storm Of Spoilers, as we examine how Laika adapts Neil Gaiman books to entire cultures to the screen to tell us grand stories about love, loss and being an outsider.

133 – Amazon’s The Tick with Returning Guest Griffin Newman!

the-tick-pilot-griffin-newman

This week, Joanna is mysteriously gone as Patches, David and Da7e wrap up the summer. Starting off with a discussion about a series of tweets about original summer movies from author Mark Harris and transitioning into a short list of Summer Superlatives (like the best performance). Then, since he’s basically the star of Amazon’s The Tick pilot (where he plays Arthur the sidekick), we thought it’d be great to have Griffin Newman back on the show (he was on Episode 19 back when Draft Day was out). The guys probe Griffin to get the EXCLUSIVE on his history with ticks, then some really cool information on how he ended up in this version of The Tick.

STORM OF SPOILERS TOUR: Nostalgia with Stranger Things

SOS_StrangerThings_2 (2)

A GAME OF THRONES PODCAST THAT IS TALKING ABOUT OTHER GREAT POP CULTURE DURING THE OFF SEASON

With Joanna Robinson from Vanity Fair, Dave Gonzales from Geek.com and Neil Miller from Film School Rejects!

It’s the sixth off season tour episode of A STORM OF SPOILERS!

This week, our hosts travel back into their own pasts to see how it stacks up against Netflix’s Sci-Fi/Horror/80s series Stranger Things. They all have thoughts on how successful this “homage” to the 1980s is and – of course – some crazy crackpot theories about what happened and what WILL (pun intended) happen next season. Joanna and Neil also loop in the new Pete’s Dragon movie and Brain K. Vaughn’s comic book series Paper Girls to talk about successfully mining a bygone period for fun (or touching) pop culture.

THIS WEEK’S TIMECODES:

0:00:00 – Intro, Game of Thrones News
0:10:23 – Nostalgia with Stranger Things, Pete’s Dragon and Paper Girls
1:15:12 – Laika Preview!
