RevCast: from RevolutionSF.com
Commentary, criticism and comedy about movies, TV and all corners of geeky genres and culture. A sci-fi convention in your pocket.

The adventures in the new Star Trek universe continue! But this time, without JJ at the helm, and with a script by fan favorite Simon Pegg! Will a story by one of our favorite geeks get classic Trek fans back on board? Or will the action focus of new director Justin Lin just make them furious? RevNews hosts Gary Mitchel & Tegan Hendrickson beam aboard Trek fans Kasey Ryan, Michael Falkner, and Sue Kisenwether to discuss these questions and many more!

Listen in as they talk about their thoughts on the reboot universe so far; the pain of Star Trek: Nemesis; how they felt after the first trailer; Kacey covers how we're an accident prone species; what (little) is known of the plot so far; the tragic loss of Anton Yelchin; the controversy over Sulu's orientation & why representation matters; how to honor Gene while not putting him on a pedestal; drawing the line at shenanigans when they involve BB-8; the gatekeeping of Rihanna & other female fans; their love for Idris Elba; the movies and shows they have to share with Kacey and their favorites of the Trek movies.

Greetings, RevFans. We present to you another one of our RevNews podcasts that was thought to be lost in the midst of Gary's cross-country move! We found it in the box with the good silverware. Season two may be streaming (and awesome), but please join us for a look back!

It's time to listen to the best podcasting avocados of RevolutionSF's kitchen, Tegan Hendrickson, Ryan Guthrie, Nathan Laws, and Gary Mitchel. You'll wonder if they can see what year it is as they discuss season one of Netflix's Daredevil. It's like an epic hallway scene for your ears as we talk about the characters, plot, and cinemotagraphy in one unbroken take of awesome. It's so much pulse-pounding thrill-a-minute discussing that you may need to call your lawyer because you have whiplash. So sit down, take a listen, and stare at your favorite painting as we take you into a world on fire. Excelsior!

In 1985, DC Comics published the epic series CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, and ever since the repercussions have reverberated down over the years, inside and out of their published universe. Characters and worlds lived and died! A cycle of yearly mega-crossover events have became the norm. And what started as an attempt to streamline the DC Universe lead to more and more frayed bits and pieces requiring new clean-ups that caused even more issues.

And now, after the somewhat unsuccessful New 52, DC is pusing the cosmic reset button once more! This time, however, feels different. This new mega-event, titled REBIRTH, is under the watchful hand of legendary writer Geoff Johns, who's no stranger to breathing new life and excitement into characters that need a return to greatness.

To discuss the events that lead to this change, the story itself, and the repercusions of this new Universe Reset, RevNews host Gary Mitchel put out the call to Green Lantern expert Sean, The Rad Ranger, and the world's foremost Flash Fan Shaun Rosado! Listen as they take a (not-so) brief look at DC's previous major events; what makes event stories work, & what doesn't; how modern heroes can be seen as modern gods; REBIRTH as business & writing decision; Batman's belt, Superman's lack of red shorts & overall costume design theory; DC's ability to do legacy; what each of the main DC characters represent to readers; the big moment that brought all the feels; the meta side of the reveal of the big bad; a look at the Superman, Batman, Green Arrow, Green Lantern & Wonder Woman Rebirth issues; Shaun's Bette Midler reference; how everyone gets to be a Batman; Rad Ranger's fondness for 90's costumes; Shaun's message to DC about artists; and the upcoming comics they can't miss.
