It's February and Hollywood has made a grand romantic gesture to proove they love the geek. Once again, the film industry thinks February is genre month. So it's a substantial list that through which our co-hosts, Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel, lead Tegan Hendrickson and Michael Falkner. In addition, there is discussion of Grimtooth's Traps, Exploding Kittens and WIlliam Hartnell’s run of Doctor Who.  Tegan and Gary also want an Iron Maiden movie and podcast.  And the devill makes his appearance.

In this long lost episode, our co-hosts, Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel, are once again joined by Tegan Hedrickson to discuss the movies for January.  In addition to the cinematic discussion, Deanna waxes poetic about the Librarians, Gary waxes poetic about Clone Wars getting Anakin/Darth Vader right, and Tegan waxes poetic about a nuggalope named Mr. Schmooples. We also beat a metaphor to death in fine RevCast fashion.  Deanna also gets broken again.

2014 has passed, so it's time to now sit back and reflect on what has come before. In the first of our retrospectives, RevNews host Gary Mitchel pulls together almost everyone who discussed the first episode "Deep Breath" in our Live at DragonCon episode to see what they thought of the rest of the season (not including the Christmas Episode): Sue Kisenwether, Jessa Phillips, Tegan Hendrickson and standing in for Michael Falkner (who sadly could not make it) is Doctor Who aficionado Mike Gordon!

Listen in as they discuss their impression of the season overall; How they feel about Peter Capaldi and the character of the 12th Doctor as well as Clara, Danny and Missy; RTD era subtle vs Moffat era subtle; the quote "If someone changes appearance, if Star Trek taught us anything, that leads you to sleep with William Riker"; the Danny/Clara romance; how the 12 Doctor relates to children; their pics of the high and low points of the season; how they feel about Moffat now; and Tegan's valiant attempts to remind us that it's all gonna be ok.

In this long lost episode from the archives, our co-hosts Deanna Toxopeus and Gary Mitchel join forces with Tegan Hendrickson to discuss the November movies before their released.  Why should you listen to this?  Because Deanna tries really hard to sell her Hunger Games/Breakdance cross-over and Gary is on Vicodin.  All sorts of crazy things could happen.
