Ep91: Internet Flicks

This week, the KtS Podcast becomes conscious of streaming as Ian, Graham, Denitsa, and Matt discuss entertainment in the On-Demand age. How have online sensations like The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, House Of Cards, and Orange is the New Black changed what we expect from TV and movies? Can Ian get reimbursed for having bought The Interview two months before it hit Netflix? And are The Good Wife and Gilmore Girls secretly the most watchable shows in television history?

All this and more await on episode 91, which you can listen to all at once--or in random chunks at your convenience!

Ep90: Dauntless

The KtS Podcast goes divergent this week as Ian and HollywoodChicago.com's Adam Fendelman discuss the headiness and silliness of dystopian-teen blockbuster Insurgent!* Also, Ian critiques hipster Q&A's, explains his lack of written reviews lately, and somehow manages to squeeze in promotions for a contest and a film festival (such breathtaking raw talent!). We're facing our darkest fears on Episode 90--namely that Insurgent might actually be better than The Hunger Games!

Ep89: Hope Springfields Eternal

Last week's passing of Simpsons co-creator Sam Simon sparked something primal in the KtS Podcast. Ian and Graham sit down to hash it out, in a wide-ranging discussion that touches of parents' groups, nostalgia, philanthropy, mortality, and--oh, yeah, The Simpsons! Episode 89 is an overachiever, and proud of it!

Ep88: Chippy

This week, The KtS Podcast says "No-burg" to Joburg as Ian and Graham talk about Chappie. Only one of them saw Neill Blomkamp's latest leaden sci-fi allegory, making the other one a clear winner in the conversation.

Also, Ian plugs Kicking the Seat's weirdest contest to date, and gets giddy with anticipation over a film set to play the third-annual Chicago Critics Film Festival. All that--and more Pump Up the Volume references than you can possibly handle--await in Episode 88!

Ep87: THE LAZARUS Defect w/ Adam Fendelman!

On tap this week is David Gelb's fifth-place shock-flop, The Lazarus Effect! No one's excited about this movie, but that won't stand in the way of a thrilling conversation. The great and gracious Adam Fendelman of HollywoodChicago.com joins Ian to talk about mainstream horror's decline, unexpectedly effective fright flicks, and the possible motives of genre filmmaking's greatest off-screen villain!

Also, Ian makes the year's worst J.J. Abrams joke, plugs the last few hours of Kicking the Seat's "Me Am LEGO Bizarro" Contest, and teases the third-annual Chicago Critics Film Festival. It's downright scary how much we can cram into Episode 87's brisk fifty-five minutes!
