The BastardCast vs Episode 100!

BastardCast-100-TITLE

Hello friends, it’s been a long time since we busted out of carbonite and returned this podcast to the internets (which you can subscribe to via iTunes here.) In that time, we’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve sang, we’ve titillated and taco’d, but now we’ve finally made it to our 100th Episode (which you can find on Stitcher by clicking here.) That’s right, SWEET SWEET SYNDICATION IS OURS! So to celebrate Jeremy’s new yacht and Jason’s new chin implants, the guys have pressed their cummerbunds, bleached their assholes, and rammed a ton of references to show’s past and our best bits (comparatively speaking) as a part of what we are humbly calling, “The BastardCast Centennial Celebration Podcast of Magic, Lighting, Intelligence, and Pleasure!

On the show for this momentous occasion: (more…)

Relax, I didn’t just mean to imply that Marc Forster, the man who gave us the worst Daniel Craig Bond Quantum of Solace and the accidentally decent World War Z, is doing another half-assed Total Recall reboot. Nope. But he is taking his next movie to the red planet, that is to say he’s using Mars as a setting and not actually going to Mars, with an adaptation of the sci-fi book Red Rising. What is this Red Rising I speak of, and will you want to see it in theaters? Read on. (more…)

Man, is Bruno Heller (The Mentalist) just scoring all the deals lately, or what? On the heels of the news he’s working on the Commissioner Gordon origin series, Gotham, for FOX, Deadline is reporting Heller is also producing a space-western for the CW. Wait, what, space-western? You mean the genre basically defined by Joss Whedon’s Firefly?

This new show, Red, is described by Deadline as a, “neo-Western drama about the first human settlement on Mars and life on this new frontier, centering on the relationships between the town’s female sheriff, a doctor and a criminal.Mentalist executive producer, Tom Szentgyorgyi, is also on board and has written the pilot.

Now, after reading the premise I wouldn’t call this show a Firefly rip-off because the similarities really end with it’s in space (though, really on Mars) and it’ll have humans living the frontier life. Lots of shows have explored those themes, but Firefly was first. Even SyFy’s current show, Defiance, owes a lot to Firefly. That being said, it is impossible to hear space-western and not immediately think Firefly, and whether that will help or hinder Red is yet to be seen.

I’m definitely intrigued by the series, and am thankful it’s not on FOX considering that network’s abysmal track record with sci-fi shows. It’s weird though, Heller pitches a DC Comics show and it goes to FOX. Then he takes a sci-fi program and gives it to the CW, which already has series, Arrow and soon The Flash, based on other DC Comics’ properties. I don’t get it, but then again, I’m no TV producer so what do I know?

What do you Bastards think of Red?

This time on the Bastardcast, Jeremy and Jason make fun of the following things:
Moon travel, putting Dan Aykroyd, George Lucas, and Eddie Murphy on ice, busting into the Disney Vault, screwing Aunt May, Walking Dead‘s midseason finale, the ‘Talking’ travesty, beating ghost children, Hobbit puke, the soul of Star Trek, and then they dance, dance  dance.
On VERSUS, they try and settle a question that Sir Ian McKellen already answered on the Colbert Report

This week on Earth-96’s favorite podcast: Jeremy and Jason try to decipher what NASA is hiding with their latest discovery, wonder if the rise of the illiterates sunk SyFy‘s battleship, and examine Marvel Now! (Thats their exclamation point, not ours.)

After that (and before it in some cases, this is hardly chronological, baby) the fellows dismiss Glee‘s geek grab, ponder when the Star Wars rumor mill will spin off it’s axis and crush us all, and mourn the death of Dirty Jobs.

Also, with hockey on ice (clever!) many kindly Canadians are rushing out to buy things that they can put into themselves and their special ladies — we talk about the rise in sex toy purchases up north, Jeremy reveals his strongly held views on armless hump balls, and Jason reveals a very special story about his… well you’ll just have to listen won’t you?

Still craving more giblets? How about this week’s VERSUS where Jason and Jeremy tussle over who would win in a stand-off for the world’s last Cabage Patch Dolls — BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPERS VS. AN ORK HOARD!
