Schizopolitan – The Podcast: Episode 18 – The Fantastic Nation of Impossible Rogues
FE4RSOME! F4BULOUS! FANT4STIC! The Schizopolitan team have voyaged to a confusing alternate dimension for no readily apparent reason and undergone wild transformations in order to bring you a new, surprisingly compact episode (only 65 minutes! Almost perfect lunch-hour listening!) in which Saxon and Jehan first examine the spectacular mess that is the new Fantastic Four movie. How did it happen? Exactly how bad is it? Will the Fantastic Four ever actually get a halfway-decent movie treatment? And will Fox ever understand what exactly they have with the characters? STRANGE ANALOGIES! TERRIBLE DOOM! INEXPLICABLE ONE-YEAR TIME SHIFTS!
And then, just for an encore, it’s time to wax lyrical about the action-packed fun of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, the latest instalment in what’s become a very unusual franchise. How has it ended up so succesful? Why did it take them so long? And can anything stop Tom Cruise from doing incredibly dangerous things? ONLY TIME WILL TELL!
