Episode 2: Light vs. Dark, Live Action TV, Fridging

In this month’s podcast we talk about:

Discussion: Light and Dark themes in superhero prose, comics, TV and movies. What do we like to read? What do we like to write? Works discussed: The Dark Knight Returns, The Flash, Superman, Watchmen.

Nerdfight: We discuss which of the current live action TV shows we like best, tell each other how awful each other’s choices are, and randomly pound on shows that aren’t even being broadcast anymore. Works Discussed: Agents of Shield, Daredevil, The Flash, Arrow, Smallville.

Stuffed in the Fridge: We discuss the superhero trope of “fridging” characters.

Note: The odd music you hear in the background is Chris’ computer receiving email. We’re going to avoid that in the future. We hope.

About the Author:

Jim Zoetewey writes The Legion of Nothing. Jim grew up in Holland, Michigan, near where L Frank Baum wrote The Wizard of Oz. Admittedly, Baum moved away more than sixty years before Jim was even born, but it’s still kind of cool. He majored in religion and sociology at Hope College, eventually getting a masters in sociology and all but three credits of a masters in Information Systems. He also enjoys running, training in the martial arts, playing bass guitar, and walking his dog. Oh... And for readers who might be his wife, he feels that he should mention that he's fond of her too.

    Since you mentioned dynamite and arrows, I thought this was appropriate to add to your list of things:

    That’s a very funny link. I love that web comic writers are getting to write comics for Marvel.

    Here’s another link to look at. It references Daredevil and fridging at the same time.
