Elise Moore and David Fiore aspire to cover every time travel film ever made (in this continuum, at least). Together, we'll dive deeply and dialogically into this eternally compelling genre. Our discussions will draw from philosophy, psychology, anthropology, history, narratology, and aesthetic theory. We'll even try to wrap our minds around the physics, when the films demand it. It's an ode to paramours and paradox by two people who really give a flux. Please let us know what you think of our approach - and chime in with your own impressions. We're all living in the same time period - we ought to take advantage of that, don't you think?

Elise was right - this one went long. But what do you expect when there are Archons of Nurnheim and Brain-Ape romances to discuss? It's DOOM PATROL #33 and #34. Drop the bomb!

Big things happening this time out - and not just that horse. Dave argues that these two issues together make the perfect Morrison DOOM PATROL sampler, as they form a kind of microcosm for the series as a whole. There are Beethoven birds! A Care Bear Stare! Spock's Brain references! Mental cartography! And issue #30 ends in a serious Cliff-hanger.

In this episode, Elise and Dave dip into the mysteries of Rhode Island (Earth-Prime version), discuss the iniquitous deeds of the Orange Order, and bear witness to another aggressive aesthetic move against the nominally real world.

The podcast is ahead of schedule for a change, as we managed to record an episode during the Canadian Thanksgiving holiday. As luck would have it, issues #25 and #26 deal heavily with the slippery concept of "the family". Join Elise and Dave for a brief excursion into the fable-haunted mind of Dorothy Spinner and the overture of the immortal Brotherhood of Dada storyline.

Join Elise and Dave as they wrap up Grant Morrison's debut tale on the Doom Patrol book ("Crawling From the Wreckage") - a little too neatly, if you ask Dave. We see intimations of Walter White in The Chief and Twin Peaks' green glove in the heartwarming finale. "Curdle yr pilgrimage" is the new "check yr privilege".

Our ridiculous podcast goes from the Sublime to the Sublime with a new project - covering Grant Morrison's DOOM PATROL. We begin with the first half (DOOM PATROL volume 2 #19 and #20) of Morrison's inaugural 4-part tale, "Crawling From the Wreckage". Keep your beautiful bits about you and watch out for falling appliances, dear friends! Errata - Elise wants everyone to know that she is very well aware that George Perez did that late-80s WONDER WOMAN series without the Wolfman, and Dave is...

In the wrap-up episode of our first viewing of TWIN PEAKS: THE RETURN, Elise and Dave respond to each other's wildly different interpretations of the finale with due skepticism, but find many areas of agreement... by the end of the 3 hours! We talk time travel narratives and alternate universes, the meaning of that symbol, the nature of evil, Shakespearean romance, portrait movies, why Audrey can't enter the narrative of THE RETURN, and why Coop gets a personality change for the worse in...

We react to the many emotionally charged, high-energy scenes of Episode 15 of THE RETURN: scenes we've been waiting for for almost three decades, scenes we've been waiting for for a dozen episodes, scenes we weren't waiting for at all, and a couple of beautiful scenes that we never wanted to see. Some characters (like Wendy Robie's Nadine, who gets her best-ever scene) break out of hellish decades-long patterns, while others are in hellish patterns from which death (their own, their...

Sit back, relax, and take your face off: Episode 14 of THE RETURN is here. Somebody spoke and I went into a dream. But who is the dreamer? The alien gods have seen some Marvel movies and they're ready to make some traditional (well, sort of) superheroes. But have Lynch and/or Frost seen Jeannot Szwarc's much-hated 1984 SUPERGIRL?

In the words of Lynch kindred spirit Kate Bush, “Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Unbelievable.” Discussed: Lynch's new way of problematizing 1950s “innocence” in the course of opening up Laura Palmer's story to a broader social and metaphysical world. Elise talks Lynch's psychosexual biography and advances her “Laura Palmer c'est moi” theory. Dave talks Calvinism and superhero comics. We agree that Laura Palmer is both Christ and Superman, like a Buffy that doesn't kick ass. Dave rejects...
