VoK 282: War & Peace (BBC One miniseries)


p03c4373

Bina007, Stuart (Firenzed) and Imogen.OB discuss, in various permutations, Tolstoy’s epic tale of love amidst the Russian aristocracy during the Napoleonic wars.

To start, Bina007 & Firenzed cover the major story arcs of the mini-series, the depiction of war and other adaptations of the novel. Then at 1hr 7mins, Bina007 & Imogen.OB get into an in-depth discussion of the novel and the mini-series. Finally, the aftershow begins at 1hr 58mins and includes:  Intro to Firenzed, ASOIAF and Chekhov Wildfire; plug for Cockneymoot on May 1st at Blenheim Palace; a lot of Sega/Creative Assembly Empire and Napoleonic Total War chat; our thoughts on Napoleon more generally.

Contains spoilers for the the novel, its adaptations, and Napoleonic history, if such a thing is possible, as well as occasional references to A Song of Ice and Fire.

Music: Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. This was also composed, like War and Peace, many decades after the battle of Borodino to commemorate Russia seeing of the perfidious French invasion.

VoK 107: WolfCast – “The Mountain and the Wiper” (S04E08 Review)


u47oWolfcast tackles the latest episode of Game of Thrones. Due to a pressing cricket emergency, the reins of the podcast are unceremoniously thrust upon an ornery and sleep-deprived Shellfish (Peter) who desperately tries to keep the sled on track as posh birds Bina (Bina007) and Imogen (Imogen.OB), béret wearing baguette toter Alix (Aiwendil), the vertically endowed windmill operator Patrick (Patrick the Tall), viper-mourner Nadia (Nadia) and newcomer Kelvin (Brum Riverlander) discuss the geography of the North, evil dresses, crimes against Manwoody, duelling laws in France and everything inbetween.

VoK 105: Blackadder (BBC series)


Ba4

For lack of a Game of Thrones episode to comment on, this week Wolfcast reviews the famous 80s British historical comedy Blackadder. Imogen.OB, expert on all things Britain, is this week’s lead host, diving into the mysteries of British history and comedy with Viking Patrick the Tall, expert bear-fighter Peter (Shellfish) and baguette-eating, beret-wearing Alix (Aiwendil).

The season-by-season discussion is very evenly divided as follows:

00:00 – Introduction, favorite seasons, quotes and characters
10:10 – Season 1: The Black Adder
17:41 – Season 2: Blackadder II
51:28 – Season 3: Blackadder the Third
1:08:04 – Season 4: Blackadder Goes Forth
2:12:08 – Aftershow: “One night, Marry, Scorpions”, Blackadder actors and their careers, Imogen’s TV show recommandation, Blackadder and social issues, “Ask Imogen – British Slang Edition”, How to properly address the Queen of England, parallels between Blackadder and ASoIaF, European politics, Peter/Patrick fanfiction, Velociraptors & more

This podcast contains spoilers for all aired episodes of the Blackadder canon and potential spoilers for A Clash of Kings and by extension the Game of Thrones TV series.

VoK 104: WolfCast – “Mockingbird” (S04E07 Review)


tumblr_n5xht4ajqX1rmaq8ro1_400

Welcome to this week’s Wolfcast in which the wolfpups seem to be at a loss on how to structure their conversation. Providing a very in depth and detail oriented review is Alix (Aiwendil), Imogen.OB, Patrick the Tall and Peter (Shellfish) as our lead host.

There will be no aftershow this time, because of the unusual length of the main part of the show. This will not mean however that this is a boring or shenanigan-free episode. Enjoy.

Warning: Contains spoilers for all published books in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire.

Edited by Sir Patrick The Tall.

Vok Littlefinger troll

Welcome to this week’s Wolfcast in which Bina007 is lost beyond the wall and all the wolfpups will have to fend for themselves. Helping you to fight away the hours of boredom is Alix(Aiwendil), Peter(Shellfish), Imogen.OB, Patrick the Tall and Nadia as our lead host. It is generally an episode of nitpicks, giggles and crackpot theories, but even so we managed to go on for 90 minutes with an 30 minute aftershow.

The aftershow begins at 1h31m and covers the implications for there only being three more Bran chapters for the show; The physiology of the children of the forest; The mystery of who is spying on our shownotes; If it is possible to conquer Westeros with 10.000 men; Eurovision And Made In Chelsea.

Warning: Contains spoilers for all published books in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire

VoK 89: WolfCast – “Breaker of Chains” aka Flipper of Tables (S04E03 Review)


images

Welcome to this week’s remarkably calm and silly Wolfcast review of The Breaker of Chains, in which Shellfish (Peter) decries the lack of krakens in Denmark; the Podcast Bard (Jed) advocates the use of Molestown condoms; Patrick The Tall baptises Middlefinger “Petyrphile”;  Nadia flips all kinds of tables; Imogen.OB suspects the Nordic contingent’s knowledge of Molestown brothels; Regula Roone (Seif) wonders if we will see Satin and Bina007 wonders what FTWard’s problem is with potatoes.

If you just want to get to the discussion of the notorious Jaime-Cersei crypt scene, it starts at 1h17m.  The unusually long and gag-free aftershow begins at 1h41m. It is surprisingly earnest and covers everything from Westerosi religion to the importance of direwolves to the Stark children to the nature of Bloodraven and more besides.

Warning: Contains spoilers for all published books in George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire

Credits:
Edited by Bina007 lovingly using images and sounds from the glorious Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
