Thwipping Boys Roundup – Agents of SHIELD, Babylon 5 and The Last Unicorn Vs. The Flight of Dragons

First of all we take a look at the premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 – “Shadows”. We didn’t like the first season much, going as far as accusing the Whedon tribe of nepotism during that uncharacteristically angry Serenity show we did. It’s not the fact that Jed and Maurissa got to a place they never would have got to without family connections that wound us up so much as the fact that they were sat in the world’s most awesome sandbox and couldn’t put together a compelling show. Let’s hope they’ve grown as showrunners…


Next up, our epic mission to podcast every bit of Babylon 5 out there reaches Season 3 as we find ourselves setting off NSA alarms over Skype and accidentally recreating a Breaking Bad scene in the process.

Finally, I introduce Simon to the Rankin Bass classic The Flight of Dragons, one of my favourite childhood films. Followed by both of us watching The Last Unicorn for the first time, based on it being a film by the same team, released in the same period and still held in similarly high esteem…
