It’s not often that I admit my guilty pleasures, especially on a public forum. I’d like to think I have more refined taste than what some of my television and movie viewing would lead you to believe. Though, the whole point of this website is to not only study good media, but to justify our love for the media that might not be setting the world on fire. Sometimes, I just enjoy sitting back, relaxing, and seeing familiar television characters interact on a weekly basis, even if the stories might not be that compelling.
I remember watching Ridley Scott’s Alien (1979) as a kid and being absolutely terrified. Granted I was probably only ten. But with the release of the long awaited Prometheus in 2012 I recently revisited the film, and found myself feeling perhaps not terror, but a great deal of anxiousness as the plot unfolded.
On the premiere episode of Not Just a Movie, Timmie, Michael, and Ryan sit down to discuss the deeper meaning behind the name and philosophy of their new project, the changing landscape of the Mad Men universe, the hooks of Lost, and the first two seasons of Game of Thrones on HBO and how they compare to the George RR Martin books. Beware, spoilers abound!
