Finally! On The Road! Part 2! Chapter 14! Our Thoughts!

  • Strengths and weaknesses of Narration vs. Cinematic language
  • How cross pollination of language helps us communicate better
  • The influence of Mass Effect on New Century

I am still going to try and get out an episode this weekend, so fear not! More TTWD is coming soon!

Here is where we start getting On The Road, moving from the last vestiges of Chapter 12 to Chapter 13. And among our topics:

  • The transition from Part 1 to Part 2
  • Our Analysis of Where The West Begins
  • Miguel vs. Francisco
  • Hrao and the Gods of Rama
  • Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow
  • Outtakes!

Took us long enough. Unlike what the recording says, next week we are on hiatus. I would have rerecorded, but I am congested as fuck with a cold, and wasn't feeling up to it. See you all again soon.

S5E07: Before The Voyage - Part 7 (Steamheart)

March 26, 2022

The beginning of our discussion on chapters 8-10, but primarily focusing on Chapter 8! (I don't know what the tendency is that our first episode in a sequence always manages to focus only on the first chapter, but, it is what it is.)

  • James coming to understand Harry, and by extention, himself
  • The Reverse Q Scene
  • Thomas's darkest order
  • Historical cameos, and making alternate history feel authentic
  • The Workshop Argument

S5E04: Before The Voyage - Part 4 (Steamheart)

March 4, 2022

Today, part 1 of our thoughts on the Recap Chapters! (mostly chapters 5 and 6)

  • James and Abigail noticing Harry
  • The response of the Arlingtons to our Secret Rooms protagonists
  • Metatext in New Century, as regards storytelling
  • Development of new dynamics between our ensemble protagonists
  • And the balance of text and subtext

I am going to try not to sprawl too much, but it may be unavoidable. This week's episode needed a lot of cleaning up, which means some of our first Skype conversation was removed to get it done on time. But I don't want to take up too much space, so if possible, I'll try to get our shows done in as few episodes as we can.
