Anomaly: Sci-Fi / Fantasy Geek Chats
Fun, conversational episodes since 2007 on Sci-fi / Fantasy and geek culture. We cover: fan conventions, sci fi fantasy TV, book, movies and more. In addition to the 50 episodes available here, you'll find many, many more at anomalypodcast.com.

This is the last Anomaly episode of 2014; a lost recording made at the Anomaly booth with Jen, Angela, Rico and Noah. We have more lost episodes to share next year: panels, booth chats and interviews. Look for those to be sprinkled into our feed, one by one, next year. Anomaly's next episode, the first of 2015, will be on role playing raid groups and how they relate to our real-life dynamics. Find out what roles Jen and Angela play in their circle of friends and hear funny stories that back up their positions. Coming January 1, 2015.

Visit the show notes to this episode, for links to previous convention reports, links to the conventions mentioned and photos. Thank you for listening! Have a happy and save New Year!

KC and Sue are back to discuss the latest episodes of Doctor Who:  Listen, Time Heist, and The Caretaker.  As always, we would like to remind you that we have each seen these episodes only once, and these are our first reactions.  And as usual, we go down several rabbit holes and stir up some Moffat crit.

Doctor Who has returned! We're already a quarter of the way through Series 8, and KC and Sue talked for nearly two hours about the first three episodes featuring the new Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi. Don't worry, though - it has been edited down to a much more manageable 52 minutes (or so).  Please remember that we both only saw each episode once and that these episodes are "first reactions" to the episode.  Don't expect too much analysis.  There will be some, however, because we just can't stop ourselves.

****THIS EPISODE CONTAINS SPOILERS****

To help you avoid said spoilers and still listen, if you want, here are some time codes:
01:15 - Thoughts on the new title sequence
03:30 - Capaldi first impressions
06:30 - Deep Breath (KC and I disagree about something!)
19:10 - Into the Dalek
28:35 - Robot of Sherwood
33:00 - General thoughts so far (including some general Moffat crit around the 38 minute mark and also some things we forgot earlier.)
40:45 - An email from listener Marcus and our response
And stay tuned to the very end for over 2 minutes of ridiculous outtakes.

Hi, I'm Jen and this is Anomaly's first podcast episode about Outlander. I recently sat down with my sister and my mom to discuss the time traveling series written by Diana Gabaldon. We also talked about the first two episodes of the new television show that Gabaldon and Ronald D. Moore created, based on her novels. Alas, I don't have the Starz Channel, but my mom graciously offered to record them for me—it's good to have connections. A couple of weeks ago, I had a free weekend, so I  traveled seventy-five miles to watch them with her and my younger sister. It was our "girls' night". We shared a couple of  bottles of wine and some laughs as we talked late into the evening about why we enjoyed the series. It's a very good excuse to get together more often and I think we're going to make it a habit.

Welcome to our final installment of this year's Classic Who series! KC and I discuss the 1996 TV Movie simply titled "Doctor Who" and starring Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor.

We talk about why American content creators should not be trusted with a 30+ year old BBC property, the overuse of racial stereotypes and gang/gun violence, the Seventh Doctor's traumatic end, and the somewhat odd characteristics of the Eighth Doctor (like kissing random women, which stuck around, and telling people bits from their future, which didn't). We also discuss the Doctor's apparently questionable genetic makeup, and again ask the age-old question: Why does the Master have superpowers?

This month, while KC is busy a moving couple hundred miles, I was joined by Anomaly Correspondent and Staff Writer Sarah to talk about Jurassic Park.  From the very beginning, we had some particularly difficult issues with Skype, and even after correcting the audio as much as possible, Sarah still sounds a bit like she's in a fishbowl.  Apologies.

Along with favorite quotes/characters/scenes and John Williams's majestic score, we share stories of our first experiences with this movie, production trivia, comments from the Facebook group, and talk a little about the somewhat weighty themes of exploiting scientific advancement for monetary profit and attempted to control nature.
