Saga of Rereading Epics: The Adversary

Hi there, member! We think you’re swell, so we’re letting you hear this ep early! It’ll drop in the main feed on December 25, 2020.

Julian May wraps up the Saga of Pliocene Exile. As usual, we have thoughts! And feelings! Who got a good ending? Who got the shaft? How did this strike us now as compared to our first times through? All this and more if you just hit “Play”.

Saga of Rereading Epics: The Nonborn King

Hello, gracious member! Congratulations on being super cool and getting this podcast now instead of November 25, 2020.

Lisa and Erika really dig into where Julian May might have been coming from. She gave a few of her characters a raw deal, and really tips her hand starting with the title of the book itself. Reading this novel with 2019-brain is a very different exercise than our first reads-through. (Yes, we recorded this episode in 2019.)

Saga of Rereading Epics: The Golden Torc

Hi, member! Congratulations on being awesome and getting this podcast now instead of October 25, 2020.

The saga continues with the other half of Group Green. We have so many feelings about spoilery recaps, mopey Elizabeth, savvy Mercy, and so much “Oh Bryan. Why?”


Saga of Rereading Epics: The Many Colored Land

Hello member! You get this shiny podcast a whole month early!

Erika and Lisa dive headlong into their epic re-read just as Group Green dives headlong into Earth’s Pliocene Epoch. With either live up to expectations?

Agents of SMOOCH: Red Vine Daddy

We go for a deeper, darker shade of blue in The Incomprehensible Agents of S.M.O.O.C.H’s commentary of Underworld with Kate Beckinsale who wears just the right amount of leather. It’s like Twilight had a baby with The Matrix but with Neo and Bella but more Vampires and Lycans but fewer computer programmers or something. About halfway through we question all our life choices. Whoever called this a romance should probably be fired, except Annette promises there’s a hybrid love child and more Michael Sheen coming in The Rise of the Lycans. This commentary dies a slow vampiric death more than it ends. Will we continue? Probably not. But maybe Director Annette will persuade them.

Agents of SMOOCH: Big Ripe Banana

Our Incomprehensible Agents of S.M.O.O.C.H. mourn (yes seriously) the end of our Twilight journey with much singing and attempts at speaking French. Will Bella and Edward be okay? Do we like wolves now? WTF is this imprinting thing? Will Moises convince you that this is the greatest movie ever made? Listen as it slowly dawns on Annette that she has never actually watched the last movie in the Twilight series, so she finally has an excuse for remembering nothing. In the end, it’s not about the wolves or the vamps. It’s about the Incomprehensible friends and podcast spin-offs we make along the way. Come find us all at La Push when this pandemic thing is over.


Agents of SMOOCH: Tiny Pack Wolf Meeting

Our dedicated Incomprehensible Agents are entering the final mission, part 1 with the Breaking Dawn, Part 1 commentary. Rumour is this is when the Twilight movies get good. But where is Michael Sheen? And does anything really happen? Is that filmed on a blue screen? Our Agents throw themselves into this mission with wedding fashion critiques and lots of distractions. And we talk about sex, baby.


Agents of SMOOCH: Dollar Store Sheryl Crow

This is the chaotic evil of commentaries. Do we talk about the movie Eclipse? Not really. Do we talk? Non-stop. The characters talk and talk and talk and the Agents talk right over them. We redefine raspberries, listen to Foghorn Leghorn wannabe Yoda, and keep shouting “shirtless wolves.” The longer this goes the more Incomprehensible we get. So enter if you dare. You won’t be sorry. We aren’t. But we might be tomorrow.

Trivial Retreat: Pilot Episode (edited)

This is a new game called Trivial Retreat! In it, players get information from the back of a Trivial Pursuit Genus Edition card and then try to guess the questions—or invent better ones. (The unedited mess is in the Bootleg feed; this is an edited version that is a lot more presentable.)


Agents of SMOOCH: I Could Go for Some Lugnuts

Join our Incomprehensible Agents of SMOOCH for the Twilight: New Moon Commentary. Yeah. There are some plot holes in New Moon, the second movie in the Twilight series, but there are some pretty people who make a lot of faces. Some good. Some really not good. Also Michael Sheen. The moment our agents reach the correct level of tipsy, we realized that jorts with no shirts are the epitome of fashion. Grab a glass or two or probably three and join us in Agents of S.M.O.O.C.H’s first members-only tipsy commentary from The Incomprehensible or something like that. Eclipse coming 2010.


A Threat, A Level, A Level Level Threat Watch-Along
