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.

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.
