Episode 16: Raised by Ridley

On Soviet Kepler, Dice Rolls You

It’s like they made a TV show for Tangent Space: sci-fi with androids, some post-apocalyptic faraway planet, monsters, gibberish science…that’s right, we discuss HBO’s Raised by Wolves! Oh, and longtime Tangent Space personality Ridley Scott is involved (in the show, not with us), of course, so you know we couldn’t pass this one up after we’ve discussed Prometheus and Alien: Covenant extensively. It’s a throwback to the very first episodes!

There’s a lot to talk about here with ancient religion, a cross over with Star Wars (hi, Darth Vader), giant snake worm things, and that bonkers season finale. Come have a listen and look below for show links…

Episode 15: Boyz 2 (Watch)men

Lube Man will save the day

Just two men watching boys (and grownups) wearing masks and punching people. We discuss two very entertaining and pertinent shows, The Boys on Amazon and Watchmen on HBO, which we highly recommend. We cover a lot of stuff in this one, from masks and being anonymous, to policing, race, privilege and encryption. It’s not all serious of course, as Brandon reveals his love for Wonder Woman and his distrust of tall people. Meanwhile John continues throwing shade at J.J. (Abrams) and wonders about Lube Man (answer down below!).
