Sci-Fi Party Line #118 In Time, 2nd Annual Sci-Fi Turd Off, A Look at 2012







“The turds will be minimally turdage, not the ones that inflicted the full bowel of last year.”
-Carl (@robominister) on our Annual Sci-Fi Turd Off

“Every movie is not supposed to be Americanized and wrapped and chewed up and regurgitated and fed to you like a baby bird.”
-Cat (@fancyfembot) on Sucker Punch

“Aliens that use lassos bother me. When you got space ships using grappling hooks; that offends me… You can defy gravity, you get all the way here and you are going to rope people?”
-Carl (@robominister) on Cowboys & Aliens

It’s the end of the year and we have a two-hour show jam packed full of the best and worst science fiction TV shows and movies of the year. Today’s crew is Cat and Carl. We kick off the show with the barely promoted In Time. After that we give the rules for our Second Annual Sci-Fi Turd Off (@15:51). We do a brief review of Cowboys & Aliens (@23:38) prior to putting Cowboys & Aliens and Transformers: Dark of the Moon head to head in this year’s Turd Off (@42:25). We cool off by talking about our favorite sci-fi movies of the year (@1:04:19) but get agitated again by discussing the sci-fi TV turds of the year (@1:15:40). We couldn’t end the show without a mention of SyFy’s holiday specials for Eureka, Warehouse 13, and Haven (@1:32:40). Finally, we wrap up by discussing the movies that we are anticipating in 2012 (@1:36:08).

Thank you all for a wonderful year. It wouldn’t be fun without YOU, the listeners!
