 02x03 : Raised by the Snow Itself | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Greetings, pod-listeners! We're back, later than planned,* with The Square Peg Show, season 2, episode 3, part 1**! Having mentioned Rango and Source Code in both prior episodes this year, of course we were going to go see them and talk into a microphone about them. Hopefully it's more exciting than that, though. Rango is at 32:08 and Source Code is at 44:53. And, we review the trailer of what has gotta be this year's Razzie winner at 42:10: The Beaver! Watch the trailer so you don't think we're making it up. Our look at the movies of April begins at 8:05 and has our first impressions of Hanna, African Cats, Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family, Fast Five, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, Rio, Apollo 18, Insidious, Water for Elephants, Atlas Shrugged Part 1, and a few more. We discuss some of next year's movies at 24:36, including new things from Pixar, the world of Alien, and some very serious fairy tales. New features! David starts off our new Rant segment at 30:23 while the Box Office Retrospective rears its nostalgic head at 56:00. If you've ever asked, What movie from 1990 deserves a remake?, we have that answer. You can listen by streaming or downloading and don't forget that we're on iTunes now. Also, if you want to leave us a voicemail so we can play it on the show, call 1-762-233-PEGS(7347). Tell us if you've had nightmares about Kuato. *This episode was recorded last Saturday, so here we are, a week late, with profuse apologies. Hopefully you can still dig the April preview and box office conversation at the beginning. **This time next week we will have a special bonus episode uploaded, too. Now, go listen to the podcast or I'll give you an apple.

 02x02 : The Phantom Menace Taint | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Tired of that not-so-fresh feeling? We prescribe The Square Peg Show, season 2, episode 2, available over-the-counter at most podcast providers. You might have a few side effects, though, because we discuss reverse engineering, reverse interventions, and reverse commenting. All of that requires additional medication, like Spartans with HandyCams® , sentient marionette dolls, and... The Rathbone. We discuss the sudden loss of Dwayne McDuffie, known for his great stories in comics and animation. For more on his legacy, check out these remembrances. In frivolous news, we expound on the casting for Superman and Dark Tower, photos of The Amazing Spider-Man, pilots ordered of Powers and Wonder Woman, and other super-powered shenanigans. Our March preview at 12:40 features The Adjustment Bureau, Limitless, Rango, Red Riding Hood, Kill the Irishman, Paul, Jane Eyre, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, Battle: L.A., and Sucker Punch. There's a lengthy review of Primer at 34:50. (We discuss Primer's last act from 42:26 to 44:45, with a particular plot point at 44:10 that you might want to avoid if you plan on watching it for the first time.) Press play to stream our episode or go for the direct download. If you don't, the fucking universe ends, but whatever. PRESS PLAY RELEVANT STUFFS: www.incompetech.com Royalty free music

 02x01 : Just Look at the Pretty Colors and F*ck Off | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Don't call it a comeback! Wait, we were away for four and a half months, say what you want. It's the start of season two of The Square Peg Show, where we reflect on 2010 and anticipate some 2011 movies. On this blustery day, we mention everything from The Winter's Bone to The Joker's yang. For news, we've got discussion of casting for The Dark Knight Rises at 26:03, commentary on Oscar and Razzie nominees throughout the hour, and a 2011 preview, including a metric shit-ton of sequels at 34:49 and more superhero movies at 51:04. Reviews! We quickly run through 2010 at 20:42, but our reactions to Green Hornet, Black Swan, True Grit, and Tron: Legacy start at 2:50. All this, plus Swearengen as Blackbeard, an ode to stop-motion animation, the likability of pirates, moulin penguins, the staging of a Nic Cage intervention, and no... wire... hangers!

 01x04 : Positronic Bodysock | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Why, look, it's the fourth episode of our pop-culture podcast, The Square Peg Show, with bad audio problems, the butchering of philosophy definitions, and only one hypothetical demolition of a sound stage. But there's also happiness, as we talk about Santa Claus biker gangs, Steve Carell leaving The Office, and how that talking can might get an Emmy. Please direct all factual errors and pro-Whedon, anti-D. mail to squarepegshow@gmail.com . By the way, we usually post some spoiler warnings about plot specifics, but we were pretty good about only stating the premises in these reviews. However, if you want to skip to a certain section, check out the reviews of The Glades' "Pilot" at 25:00 (but please don't watch The Glades), The X-Files: "Drive" at 31:00, Star Trek: The Next Generation: "Cause and Effect" at 36:15, and Firefly: "Objects in Space" at 45:00.

Join us for the conclusion of the big summer 2010 movie preview as we discuss films coming out in August. Also, at 23:00, we begin another big feature: discussing the top movies at the box office from the 1980s, onwards. Part One has 1980 to 1985, with a little bit on the latter half of the decade.

 The Line - Lightning-Struck Toads | File Type: application/x-shockwave-flash | Duration: Unknown

Movie: X-Men Character: Storm Line: "Do you know what happens to a toad when it's struck by lightning? Same thing that happens to everything else." "Don't you people ever die?" That's a good, solid villain cliche. But poor, dumb Toad decides to walk towards the woman who can control wind while lightning bolts shoot out of her body. What was he thinking? "Wait. I've got a long tongue and I can jump really far. I've got this." Eventually the fight winds up outside, Toad uses his tongue as a grappling hook so he doesn't fall to his death, and Storm does her best cardboard cutout impersonation and says... The Line. Two things wrong with this: (1) Since when did X-Men not named Wolverine start trying to kill people? (2) The question is set up like it's the beginning of a joke. It never seemed like a good joke. What would be a satisfying response? This is a superhero movie -- maybe a toad struck by lightning becomes a thunder god or some shit. Now, X-Men probably isn't a good film to begin with -- Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen make it good, and the first sequel is without a doubt Good. (Still trying to erase X-Men 3 from my memory.) But man was it a rocky start with scenes like this. -- Mike Fail-O-Meter: 4/5 Deep-Fried Frog Legs

 The Line - "Da Gangsta?" | File Type: application/x-shockwave-flash | Duration: Unknown

Movie: Clerks Character: Randal Line: "Babyface Bambino; da gangsta?" Oh man, This one really gets me. Now, before people get up in arms about me bashing this film I have to say first that I really love this movie. I know it was Kevin Smith's first movie, I know it was done on a very small budget, and I know that none of the cast would have considered themselves "professionals" at the time of filming. That being said, I believe this is one of the most inspirational films a future film maker could ever see, and that is what I love about it. But this line takes me right out of the movie. I think of it as sitting in my chair to watch a good flick, and as I watch it, I'm no longer in my living room. I become so sucked into the movie, that I exist in the fictional would laid out in front of me, which says a lot for the film's creators. Then this line happens, and I'm right back in my chair again. It goes against everything I've ever read about screen writing. "Show the story, don't tell it" is always the golden rule, and it was epicly ignored for this line. The delivery is also a co-culprit here. Now this being the film that it is, there are plenty of poorly delivered lines throughout, but that is what gives it its charm. It just sticks out like a sore thumb. Fail-O-Meter: 3/5 Salsa Sharks
