Continuity Error: Going Rogue

Podcast: Life imitates art imitates life in this week's episode. We talk Tay, the AI almost-queen tween of Twitter, Frodo's latest exploits, and our reactions to the reactions of "Batman v Superman" reviews.

Damn Diana. Thanks EW!

Clay Enos/DC Comics

Update, Friday at 1:10 p.m. PT: I promise we're working on getting on to iTunes for downloads! We will keep you posted on when you can download our musings from there ASAP! In the meantime, you can still check out the rest of our eps here.

On this week's podcast, the movie of...spring? March? is here: " Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" opens in theaters today and reviews are, well, dismal is putting it nicely. There are a few standout, decent reviews fighting for the little guy though, so we talk about just why so many reviews for the film probably suck so hard.

We also got a racist, horny teenager on Twitter this week -- we're talking about Microsoft's Tay, you perverts. And how she was promptly shut down by her creators for becoming a bona fide member of the Internet.

How often do you binge-watch TV? According to Deloitte's annual Digital Democracy Survey, 70% of Americans have binge-watched a show this past year. Obviously, we binge occasionally too.

Going Rogue (s1e4)

(Just a note that we've been told about 3 minutes in there's near silence. Oops! There's supposed to be this lovely clip of creepy AI, but we're still learning. Thanks for the feedback!)

Quick notes:

  • A whole different Douglas Adams book is being adapted for the screen, and a certain hobbit will be starring in the BBC America production.
  • On Thursday, thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we got our first look at the upcoming Wonder Woman movie, and these are some pretty badass-looking women.
  • Short opinions on five new trailers from the past week(ish)!

Let us know how terrible(y awesome!) we are and who's your favorite filmic AI personality.
