Back To The Future Part II (The 2015 Hilldale Scenes)

Join Scott and Hamish as they go back to the (um...very recent past?) and conclude their two part series, breaking down the 2015 scenes from the iconic film "Back To The Future Part II"! In part one, they discussed 2015 Hill Valley. Now, for part two, they delve deep into the scenes that take place at the home of the now married Marty and Jennifer McFly in 2015's Hilldale. From thumb pads to multi channel TV's to robot chefs, they'll discuss what innovations and devices the movie got right, and what still looks like the future today. They'll also talk about how Pepsi mishandled their "Pepsi Perfect" campaign, how the USA Today did everything right with their Back To The Future promotion, and why shoes like Nike MAGs may actually be closer to hitting the shelves than we think. So hydrate a pizza, put your video goggles on silent, and explore the amazing world of Wednesday, October 21, 2015 along with us! 

For part one, check out the 2015 Hill Valley episode of this podcast!

Back To The Future Part II (The 2015 Hill Valley Scenes)

Join Shawn, Scott, and Hamish (joining the show from "the future" AKA Australia) as they take a very special trip back to the present and discuss every little detail of the 2015 Hill Valley scene from the iconic 1989 film "Back To The Future Part II" to see just how close it was in predicting the world we now live in. And when we say every little detail, we mean EVERY LITTLE DETAIL! They'll discuss how the movie's predictions of products, movies, advertisements, cars, fashion, sports, and news stories hold up and other little details you may have missed. Listen as they review, among many other things, every news item from Doc's copy of the USA Today, the items in the antique store window, the Chicago Cubs winning the 2015 World Series, and of course the Hoverboard. Some predictions were dead-on, while others may require another 30-year DeLorean trip to actually see. So, c'mon all you bojos, ride your hoverboards into town, meet us in front of the Cafe 80's and explore with us the Wednesday, October 21, 2015 we've always dreamed about! 

This is only part one! For part two, we will discuss the 2015 McFly House scenes! Look for it...in the future!

Atari: Game Over

Join Lily, Shawn, and Scott as they review Atari: Game Over, the first documentary in Xbox Live's Signal to Noise series. Listen as they discuss the rise and fall of Atari Inc., the colossal commercial failure of E.T. The Game, the urban legend of the burial of millions of unsold E.T. The Game cartridges in a New Mexico landfill, and the years of undeserved blame placed on game designer Howard Scott Warshaw. From the Atari 2600 to Game Genie to Raspberry Pis to why having Steven Spielberg attached to your project may not necessarily be a good thing, they talk about it all!(Also Scott surprises the crew with a gift to commemorate the episode.) Hopefully this is one to phone home about!
