Posted some of this on the other meet'n'greet forum cuz I'm not sure where I belong. Forum lurker since 2016. Listener since, idk when. Probably walking dead then GoT or something like that. Love the movie coverage too. I'll listen to things I don't watch and imagine the show - like to do the same by reading spoilers for shows just for the hell of it. Classic simulation dependency (not sure that's a thing; see Incredibles 2). Architect. sci-fi lover. horror fan. Horrible with music knowledge.
I'm new in the sense that I've probably only posted a few comments and I don't know anyone. I live in the metro area that the podcast hails from. I don't know one thing about a forum community but usually don't mind reading through all the in-jokes - but if I see the comment thread count too high before I first hop in I generally avoid.
A couple months ago, the whole family on stay at home orders, I walk out to the rest of the family in the back yard to my wife saying something like, "stay back let me get a stick." I ask what's up and she says that my young boys told her there was a snake and that it's under the modular outdoor sofa. I flip the thing up and am shocked by a 5' long dark snake just sitting on the stone patio. My boys are like, " see dad told you." I got a shovel and promised the boys I wouldn't hurt it but wanted it to scurry off. Which it did as I approached. Thinking that it was a good time to go over some general safety about snakes I started in that they did the right thing in telling us and that they shouldn't try to grab them or anything. To which my older son (4 yrs old) replies that they didn't tell us right away because he wasn't sure it was real. So he touched it on the head to see if it was real, "and it was real dad!"
cdrive said:MoonMan13 said:So, Mother obviously is equipped differently than Father was? What do we think about this banshee high frequency decimating ability?
So I think it was interesting that when Mother came out of the shelter to unleash the ass whooping, the Veteran Warrior dude, his name is Marcus, tried to quickly tell the others in his party "Don't look at her!" But it was too late and she fried their faces into gross meatloaf. Man that was sick. The Cleric told Mother and Campion at dinner that he was a Cleric but the others were warriors from The War. So this war and Mother's flashback are not from too long ago it seems. Not like a 100 year jump it seems, unless the cyrogenic space travel thing. And Marcus, who I always want to call Ragnar cause of Vikings, has like a seared scar on one half of his face like he didn't quite look away in time from one of these android banshee attacks in The War. Like he was trying to quickly warn the others from previous battle experiences.
So I think if they look away they don't get hurt. This I think is backed up when she's on the Ark. Maybe the atmosphere on the planet makes it less severe (albeit way more gross) than being in an anti-gravity spaceship in space, because she was turning room fulls of people into bloody psychedelic desktop screensavers. But the one guy who wasn't looking at her in the control room and was instead ducking and hiding under the table wasn't decimated. So we got a little bit of a Medusa thing going on there maybe is my take. We'll see how that plays out...
This show is right up my alley in terms of aesthetic, mystery, themes, sci-fi, just everything. I hope it holds up.
On a related note, I was there for prometheus and the following alien film with one exception: the the unbelievably irrational decision making. So let's hope we've sanded down that rough edge in this series
I'm wondering the same thing
