Please Add This Podcast To My Pull List

This first episode was awesome and basically, everything I could want out of a comc book podcast. I'm less interested in hearing about comic book news or reviews (which is what most of them are) and much more interested in some interesting critique.

It's really refreshing to hear honest discussion about Sandman (specifically) and not just fan-boy gushing. It's definitely making me go re-read the books.

So, great job. I'm excited for more.

Really Hitting Its Stride

After a few rocky epsidoes - great content, hit or miss on the sound quality, the Stack guys really seem to be putting our something interesting and different. By the time you get to the Transmetropolitan show, the sound quality is decent (you can hear everybody) and the tone and talk is getting really interesting. Deep, indepth, and wildly amusing conversations about what makes great stuff great, and why you should read stuff!

Alien episode specifically, PRO HAL generally

I think the major point that you all missed when talking about the way in which issues of the time worked their way in to the Alien franchise movies is that you presupposed that people have to intend for those issues to be written into the script. Just because Joss Whedon didn't actively say "I want to make a very gristly scene in which a child like thing experiences a very late term abortion" doesn't mean that he doesn't have some sort of underlying subconscious thoughts about how that is the most terrible thing for a motherly, womanly character to experience. I think even in the rediculousness and poor writing of the 3rd and 4th films, if nothing else it gives you a great insight into what these writers thought was scary, gross, etc.

I really like your episodes, if for nothing else than because I end up yelling at my ipad when someone says something I disagree with (i.e. when Hal got shut down for saying that men have agency in a pro-feminist context). And also, Hal rules!
