‘The Magicians’ recap: Brad and Cort Talk S3x02, “Heroes and Morons”

Welcome back, Fillorians! This week we go on a most unexpected journey with High King Eliot and family. He's supposedly off gathering much-needed taxes from the outer islands. What he's really up to is, of course, filling those blank pages of Quentin's new favorite story. Our badass Queen Margo is sidelined, but she sends her bestie off with some great advice. Or actually, it was more of a directive. Basically, she wants to him forsake heroic doings if it comes down to the mission or his...


'The Magicians' recap: Brad and Cort Talk S3 Premiere, "The Tales of the Seven Keys"

The Magicians, Ep 3x01 "The Tales of the Seven Keys" aired on January 10, 2018 Quest on, Fillorians!!! That's right our favorite magicians are officially back. How fluent are you in pop culture? And how epic was that moment when Eliot and Margot delighted us all in their efforts to outwit the Fairy Queen? It was truly next level and our inner fangirl/fanboy are still feeling pretty giddy. It was only an hour, but still, we managed to check back in with everyone. They're not dealing so well...

Let this be a lesson! That's how you turn the page on a kickass season already brimming with badass showdowns and wild revelations. Welcome back, Helsingers! It was quite a ride, but we've reached the end of an epic season 2 for all of our favorite characters. Rowland Pidlubny (Scab/Scott) joins us to break it all down.

'The Magicians': Brad and Cort Talk Magic, Demi-gods, Fave S2 Moments, and S3 News

It appears that magic isn't dead after all. The year has been long but fret not because the hour is near when we all return to Fillory and Brakebills.

'Riverdale' recap: Brad and Cort Talk THAT killer reveal from 2x09, "Silent Night, Deadly Night"

The first half of the season flew by with all the killer drama and relationship turmoil. We had our last episode until next year and boy was it a doozy. The show closed out it's "Black Hood" story arc with a killer arc and yea, it wasn't quite what we expected. The red herring turned out to not be such a red herring after all. Or was he? Brad and our fellow writer Meg who does the written weekly recaps have their own theories about that reveal. Hit play and listen in as Brad and Cort break...


‘Van Helsing’ recap: Brad and Cort Talk Ep 2×10, “Base Pair”

‘Van Helsing’ recap: Brad and Cort Talk Ep 2×09, “Wakey, Wakey”

Welcome back, Helsingers! Vanessa is still AWOL and the rest of our survivors are not okay. We pick up almost immediately where we left off last week. Scarlett and the others escape becoming the main course for their new cannibal friends. It’s Dmitri and the Sisterhood to the rescue. Who’d have thought? Granted, the vampires are single-minded in their intent to retrieve the key and the “Van Helsing” offspring. A few weeks ago, Cort had the chance to speak with Missy Peregrym (link) and the...

‘Van Helsing’ recap: Brad and Cort Talk Ep 2×07, “Everything Changes”

Welcome back, Helsingers! What’s a reluctant bloodsucker to do when your last true hope for salvation refuses to bite you? Poor Axel can’t seem to catch a break.
