056: Constantine 1x03 "The Devil's Vinyl" - Captain Research

Constantine (2014) Screencap
How could this show be anything but delightful.

SPOILERS UP TO (and including) CONSTANTINE 1x03

In this episode:
  • Discussion of Constantine 1x03 "The Devil's Vinyl," including plottiness, the introduction of Papa Midnite, serialization vs. villain of the week, and what we want to see more of.
  • We also have several digressions where we talk about the way other shows (including The Flash, Sleepy Hollow, and Doctor Who) handle storytelling, but it's all relevant. Really. We swear.
  • Ian's still not sure about Matt Ryan's acting, but it may be more of a problem with the writing.
  • What do the writers hope to accomplish with the storytelling in this series? (Spoiler alert: It's probably something to do with making money.)
  • How can they earn the narration that they're including at the end of each episode? Should they just chuck it altogether?
  • They're starting to show some cinematic flair. MOAR.

  • Apologies once again for the lateness of this episode. We'll do our best to keep you apprised on Tumblr and Twitter if it happens again.
  • Once again, here's a link to the Halloween-themed episode of Lag Time Podcast. We discussed gameinformer's Top 25 Horror Games of All Time, I retold my P.T. story, and much fun was had. Also, MAJOR SPOILERS FOR AMNESIA: THE DARK DESCENT.
  • I wanted to use "Money, Money, Money" by ABBA for the outro, but I couldn't find our copy of ABBA's Greatest Hits. Woe.

  • Intro music: "This is My Design" - original song, music by Ian. More on this as it develops.
  • Outro music: "Money" - Pink Floyd | YouTube | iTunes |
