Thoughtful, reflective & worthy of a show with deep questions
Extant may well prove to be the break out hit of the summer. A deep thoughtful show steeped in mystery and intrigue that explores a blend of many classic SciFi themes in an engaging new story.
As they have with all their SciFi podcasts, Mike and Dave have proven once again they know just how to weave through a complex show and dig into the tough questions.
Articulate, thoughtful and insightful analysis of the themes, story arcs and characters are handled with the same inquisitive yearn that we all feel while watching our favorite SciFi. These guys are fans .. they "get" why we love these shows.
With Dark Matter, An Extant Podcast, Mike and Dave deliver. If you're a SciFi fan enjoying Extant (how can you not?) and you love to dissect, speculate and examine all the finer details of your shows--this is the Podcast for you. Nuff said.
Great podcast about the new show, Extant!
Dave and Mike take us on the mysterious journey that is Extant with this interesting and compelling podcast. The story has just begun and the mysteries are deep and tangled, but our podcasters help sort through the new episodes each week as we explore the characters and deep, dark plots. I recommend this podcast for any new fan of the show!
Excellent discussions on Extant
Mike and Dave do an excellent job covering the time traveling conundrums in their Continuum podcast, so when I heard they were doing the same for Extant, I couldn't wait to follow along with them. Each week these guys bring some insightful commentary and thought provoking observations about Extant. I get so much more out of each episode after listening to the podcast.
Keep up the great work!
