Episode 49: Fox on the Run

October 6, 2017

Love them or hate them, the FOX Network can have some really cool shows.  Usually they cancel my favourites, but they do have a track record of having some great entertaining programming.  This week's episode, I focus on a few of those shows as the October/Halloween season begins.  Plus, with a few bits of news and recommendations sprinkled around, we take this podcast episode and run with it for some spooky festive fun and foils.  So get ready to go on a magical trip with The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast.

Outro Track: "Rivers" by Skinny Puppy from the 1989 LP "Rabies"

Music that can be heard through the episode can be found on such releases as "They Came From Rue Morgue" (various artists), and the "Batman: Arkham Knight Soundtrack" by Nick Arundel and David Buckley.

Episode 46: Discovering Atlantis

August 21, 2017

Finally, the show has returned, and it's about damn time.  And for the first episode since the month long hiatus, Paul explores the underwater world of Atlantis, and more importantly, its king...Aquaman.  But this isn't your typical exploration of the underwater monarch.  No, this is a time travelling piece, as we look at Aquaman, and how he was portrayed in 1968.  So get your snorkeling gear on and let's dive into this week's episode of The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast.

Background music this week contains selections from the "Spookies" original soundtrack by Ken Higgins and Jim Calabrese, and also from the 2017 album "Orgy of the Vampires" by Terrortron.  Both albums can be purchased at http://www.bandcamp.com.

Outro Track: "Cities in Dust", by Siouxsie and the Banshees.

July 12, 2017

Welcome back everyone to another edition of The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast.  This week, it's all bats.  But not 'that' bat.  No, not the Batman, but the other bat in the belfry.  Vampires, blood, carnage, animation.  This week's topic is the Netflix smash hit, 'Castlevania', based on the hit video game series from Konami.  Paul focuses on the animation, the music, the characters and the themes the show dwells upon, concluding with his own rating and overall thoughts on the 4 episode season.  So get your holy water and garlic ready, and take a trip to Wallachia with The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast for Episode 45: Blood & Fire.

Episode 44: The Thing That Should Not Be

July 4, 2017

It's a new episode on the day of the first anniversary for The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast, and this episode is something of the fun and ranty type.  So everyone these days just loves Wonder Woman, and the goodness that the film of said character is bringing.  But did you know there was a time when the Amazon Princess of Themyscira was handled so badly that even a pilot episode was withheld from the public?  Yes, it's true my friends.  But you wanna know something?  I've seen that pilot.  And today I'm sharing with you the details of that atrocity.  This one episode of Wonder Woman is so bad, I've given it the title of "the thing that should not be".  So gather round good kiddies, and let Uncle Pauly share with you a tale of the time David E. Kelley was almost allowed to destroy the Goddess of DC's holy trinity with one single pilot episode.

 Outro Track: "Burnin' in the Third Degree" by Tahnee Cain & the Tryanglz; from the original soundtrack for the 1984 film "The Terminator".

Episode 42: Great Hera! Wonder Woman Makes Us Proud

June 8, 2017

She is Diana; Princess of Themyscira, daughter to Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, and she is this week's topic on The Bats, Bows n' Books Podcast.  In a full rundown, Paul talks passionately about the latest entry in the DC Extended Universe of films.  From the cast and crew, to the relevance of this film in the DCEU, to the importance of this film in the world today, many aspects are explored in today's episode.  There's also a quick mention of the Gotham Season 3 finale, but it's not a main focus.  This episode primarily belongs to the leading lady of this past week, Wonder Woman.

Outro Track: "Wonder Woman Main Theme" by Tina Guo.  The single can be purchased through iTunes, and other digital retailers.

Music that can be heard throughout the episode comes from the "Wonder Woman: Original Musical Score", as done by Rupert Gregson-Williams (released in 2017).

Episode 40: Alien Covenant Review

May 24, 2017

Just a small episode with one small purpose: to review the new Alien: Covenant film with very mild spoilers.  Paul saw the film this past Monday.  Did he like it?  Did he hate it?  Does it live up to what he wanted in an Alien film?  Well, you'll just have to listen to find out.  And while he doesn't spoil any of the main plots or story, there is a few moments he does discuss so, listen with discretion.  Oh, and he's a bit happy about it being the day of the Arrow fifth season finale, so there's a bit of that in the episode as well.  Hope you enjoy this week's episode.

Outro Track: "Familus Horriblus" by Pop Will Eat Itself; from the 1994 album "Dos Dedos Mis Amigos".

Background music that can be heard throughout the episode comes from the "Alien: Covenant" Original Soundtrack Score, as composed by Jed Kurzel.
