Arnold and Scott return to chat about one of their all-time favorite post-apocalyptic action romps. Pour some genuine 160 proof old Anglo Saxon, dress for dinner, and enjoy the end of the world with Charlton Heston in 1971’s THE OMEGA MAN! One of three adaptations of Richard Matheson’s 1954 novel I AM LEGEND, Chuck’s film falls between Vincent Price vehicle THE LAST MAN ON EARTH (for which the guys recorded a FREE feature-length audio commentary), and Will Smith’s 2007 I AM LEGEND. This in-depth discussion wouldn’t be complete without fellow Omega Man Scott Collura of IGN.com (who also joined the guys for a G2V Podcast on the PLANET OF THE APES franchise). And remember…there is no phone ringing, dammit!
Time to say farewell to 2016 – whew – and face the apocalypse about to come in 2017 – ugh! But first, Arnold and Scott discuss no less than SEVEN episodes of Z NATION in advance of the series’ Season 3 finale! The casual catch-up convo pays special attention to the strong performances in “Heart of Darkness,” Doc’s solo sojourns, the evolution of Murphy and Lucy, and where the show might go in its fourth year.
It’s catch-up time, so we’re having an “Ashtravaganza” as we chat about FOUR episodes of ASH VS. EVIL DEAD, including the return of Cheryl! Also, Arnold shares some of the amazing responses to the controversial episode 86 of DOCTOR OF THE DEAD that covered the Season 7 premiere of THE WALKING DEAD! Happy Thanksgiving, eat some flesh for us!
We watched THE WALKING DEAD Season 7 premiere like millions of others. So…that happened. But in this special episode, world-renowned zombie scholar Arnold T. Blumberg (the Doctor himself), as well as producer/co-host and fellow horror aficionado Scott Woodard, explain why they are now done with that series. If you care to hear their informed opinions about why TWD has now gone too far for even a zombie expert, listen on! The guys also cover the latest two episodes of the must-watch series Z NATION, which remains an entertaining balance of horror, humor, and human nature!
Arnold and Scott tackle a favorite Italian zombie movie, BURIAL GROUND: THE NIGHTS OF TERROR, with the preternaturally perverse and potentially psychotic Peter Bark playing a boy suffering from an unhealthy obsession with his mother and death-tinged cloth, and a horde of clay-faced zombies wielding farm implements and laying siege to a posh house party. It’s the definitive European living dead-fest, with the G2V Guys giving it their scythe-slicing all in a feature-length audio commentary! Mama, it’s only one dollar!
