When the truth becomes the podcast, you publish the podcast. The Immortals bring their own truth to one of Sarah’s all time favorite westerns: The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. They also listen to David Bowie’s unconventional album, Low, and a happy example of rock, T-Rex’s 20th Century Boy. Austin makes some bold claims about Alf. But before all that, everyone watched J.C.’s bonus pick, the cult reality show MTV’s Fear. Get excited!
As we get closer to Easter, the guys look back at one of the great films by Martin Scorsese and his most controversial. The Last Temptation of Christ tells the story of the last days of Jesus as he embraces his destiny to die on the cross while dealing with the mortal fears and doubts. The guys talk about the powerful titular temptation, Willem Dafoe’s humanistic portrayal of a god and how Scorsese’s background inspires the types of stories he wants to tell.
In 1001 episodes, it’s probably likely there will eventually be a musical episode of The Immortals. Not quite there yet, but we’re close with reviews of Nashville, Butthole Surfers and David Bowie. It’s a wide range of seeing the world through the illusion of the American dream, through the celebration of dance and through the Butthole Surfers. They also dive into the beloved show Gilmore Girls! Which has 100% less Butthole Surfers.
Double, double toil and trouble. Fire burn and cauldron bubble. That was the creepy repeated phrase of the witches in William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Throne of Blood is an adaptation of the Bard’s tragic tale except instead of witches, it’s a weird dude in the forest. Also there are samurais. It’s awesome. Also we have the album Autobahn, David Bowie, and another beloved British miniseries. Beware the Scottish play!
In Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest, there is a very simple message. If you don’t want to have international assassins and criminals trying to murder you in beautiful locales, don’t be a dick to your waiter. Lessons to live by. Also we have David Bowie this episode, the return of Shaft and the review of the book every graduate receives whether they want it or not.
The Immortals return after a week off! They discuss important topics like who is sexier: David Bowie in The Man Who Fell to Earth or Jack Bauer in 24? Adam abandons all of his morals for the sake of the podcast! They compare two non-sci-fi things to sci-fi movies! They discover who likes crazy German industrial music and which Immortals think that Immortal is crazy! All of this and more
