Case Closed Reviews: Summer 2016

Follow us directlyon Stitcher, or on iTunes

First impressions are great but what about our thoughts after we’ve watched an entire series week to week? We figured our listeners might want to hear our final impressions as well so we’ve created the Case Closed Review podcast. Just like the S.W.A.T. Reviews, these will be mini-podcasts and completely off the cuff.

The Speakeasy #029: Red-headed Stepchild, A Macross II Discussion


Drink #029: Red-headed Stepchild,
A Macross II Discussion

Every long-running franchise has its shinning stars; those parts of the larger series that are held up as the pinnacles of what the franchise has to offer. At the same time, every franchise also has its low points that everyone tries to sweep under the rug and forget about the best they can. Macross II is definitely not in the highly regarded category when it comes to Macross in general. It was enough of a shame on the House that Hikaru built that it was barley recognized as anything but “a story from an alternate timeline.” Andrew from the Veef Show on Collection DX joins us to discuss what Macross II did to earn itself the reputation it has and in turn what it did right.

The Veef Fires the Macross Cannon

As a fan of the Veef Show from ColectionDX I decided to leave some audio feedback on the recent review of the 2nd Macross Frontier Movie. Apparently my question was enough to spawn its own podcast where Andrew discusses the Macross stance on canon between their various iterations of the franchise. This spawns a whole podcast on the differences between the American and Japanese sci-fi franchises and what is canonical and what is not. Of course that means Star Wars Vs. Star Trek and the complex canon wars comes up as well.
