Historical Fantasy (and Other Geeky Topics)

It’s a good old fashioned World Transformed Geekout as Phil explains how shows like Vikings and The Frankenstein Chronicles are blending history and fantasy in a new and fun way. (UPDATE: and you can add the new AMC series The Terror to that list.)

Meanwhile, Stephen has thoughts on how the movie Ready Player One is completely different from the novel — and why that’s okay.

Plus Phil recommends the new Starz series Counterpart, which is NOT (unfortunately) currently available on Amazon Prime as Phil says on the show –unless you have the Starz app. [Of course, you could do the one-week free trial and binge watch the show, but we would never recommend that people do anything like that.]

BONUS: Stephen says you totally CAN watch Blade Runner 2049 on Amazon Prime — so there is that.
